It even has a full-size ironing board and iron.

The Villa kitchen is light and cheery with everything a cook would need to prepare any type of fare, including the basic seasonings, pots, pans, utensils, silverware and of course a meal would not be complete without the accompanying attractive table mats, napkins and coordinating dishware.

Your open living floor plan has new cottage-type furniture, with a comfortable queen sleeper sofa, to sit and gaze at the beautiful view of the beach or to enjoy a program on the new flat screen TV or a movie on the DVD player. The charming dining table is large enough to accommodate six adults comfortably while still being able to enjoy seeing the shrimp boats sail in the distance on the water. Or experience a romantic dinner on your private balcony as the sun sets on another beautiful day at Fripp Island.

Fripp Island is a lovely private island and nature preserve with beautiful beaches and many activities for the beach or sports enthusiast. Whether you are wishing for a quiet getaway from the typical overcrowded beach resort or planning a vacation with family or friends, Fripp Island can accommodate your wishes. Camp Fripp offers many activities for kids, including crafts, beach trips and nature excursions. The Island is only a short distance from some of the oldest historical cities in the country. Beaufort is a mere 17 miles away, perfect for a morning tour excursion or shopping expedition, with more than enough time to soak up the sun on the beach at Fripp in the afternoon or to hit the greens for a rousing game of golf or tennis. For those interested in venturing further, Charleston is only two hours by car and Savannah GA is just 90 minutes. For those who are history buffs, Fripp Island is a perfect location to indulge those passions while still vacationing in a resort atmosphere.

About Pam Weidner

We are Larry and Sue Weidner, originally from Edmond Oklahoma. We bought the villa in 1996, but loved the low country so much we decided to move here permanently in 1998.

Pam Weidner purchased this villa in 1996

Why Pam Weidner chose Fripp Island

We originally chose Fripp Island to be close to our family in Beaufort while visiting from out of state. We loved the private nature of the island and its unspoiled beauty while still having all the amenities and activities of a resort.

What makes this villa unique

We love being able to see the beautiful sunrises over the beach from our villa windows or enjoying our morning coffee on the balcony as the sun lights up the ocean. We have spent many happy hours on the beach visiting with family and friends. Our grandchildren practically grew up here on this island, they loved swimming in the ocean and then going to the pool, there were always so many fun activities for them to do here. Our family has enjoyed many Breakfasts with Santa, Easter Egg Hunts, Beach Club Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter Dinners. Over the years we have collected many memorable moments at this Villa and Fripp Island Resort with our family and friends.

Amazing view and beach access!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved our stay at this villa! The villa has a fantastic view of the beach and ocean. It's very easy to access the beach too. My husband and I were lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves. So relaxing! The kids (10 and 13) loved the beach. We spent hours finding seashells and sand dollars. We were even lucky enough to see dolphins!

The villa itself was very comfortable. The kids loved having their own beds and the queen in the master was very comfortable. It was great to have 2 bathrooms too. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed having cable in the living room and master. The internet worked great too.

You can still see the aftermath of the hurricane. The state park was closed as were a few local shops. However, with such a great beach we really didn't mind. Make sure to stop and get groceries on your way in. We shopped at Publix and although expensive, they had a good selection.

This is a great place to enjoy the beach. The wildlife is abundant. We only stayed for 3 days and would definitely stay longer in the future. Beaufort is a super cute town and an easy drive. We'd spend more time there next time. Hopefully they'll get the state park open soon. It looked amazing from the road!

Pam, thank you for your hospitality! The treats you left were a nice surprise and brought a smile to our faces. Our daughter lost a tooth while we were there and it turns out that the Tooth Fairy in South Carolina brings sand dollars. Thanks for a relaxing family vacation! We hope to come again!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. The owners were so nice to rent from, and even left us a nice welcoming gift on the table. Location is perfect, even for the ones that don't want to go on the beach. They can sit on the balcony and enjoy looking at it. Loved it.
