Beautiful Waterfront Canal Home with Dock Close to Golf Course

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to one of South Carolina's best kept secret beach vacations. Our house is located on a quiet street just three minutes from the beach by golf cart or walking distance to the golf course. This house has spectacular views of the canal and marsh. Our new dock on the canal is finished and ready to use. The climate at Fripp Island is hard to beat: in the summer usually 80's or low 90's; spring and fall in the 70's; moderate in the winter around 50's to 60's.

This beautiful home has four bedrooms and four and half baths. The master bath has a big walk in shower and a jacuzzi tub. The master bedroom has a big wrap around porch with steps going down to the backyard. All four bedrooms are on the first floor. The great room is on the second floor with spectacular views of the canal and marsh all the way down to the inlet on the south end of the island. Many of the furnishings have been updated in 2010. It's great to sit and relax and enjoy the view from the screened in porch.

Located near the end of Crooked Creek Lane and next to the last house on the canal, you will enjoy the peace and quiet of this island paradise. This house is about 200 yards from a new playground for kids, Davis Love Park, with swings and slide and a captain John Fripp Boat. There is a basketball court and sand volleyball court and a picnic cabana. Leave your car at the house and walk to the clubhouse about two minutes away. Fripp Island is a wonderful place for you and the kids to ride bikes on miles of paved trails and streets.

Since the house is located only four minutes by golf cart to the beach and two minutes to the swimming pools at the Cabana Club, there is easy access to all amenities. There are two 18 hole championship golf courses, one in walking distance and the other at the north end about five minutes by car or cart.

Fishing is great at Fripp Island with lots of choices. The easiest is right off the dock in the backyard. Bring a castnet and catch your own bait. You may even catch enough shrimp for a meal. If you love surf fishing, there are several miles of beach. Some of the best inlet fishing is on the south end. With a small boat you can explore miles and miles of creeks and waterways behind Fripp Island. (Be careful you don't get lost or stuck on a sand bar) Larger boats can be launched at the marina for offshore fishing or you can charter a trip with one of the locals.

This home is located on a 3000 acre, gated island with three and a half miles of uncrowded beaches. Fripp Island is known for its scenic beauty, wildlife (deer, alligators, birds, raccoons, and more) and its relaxed atmosphere.

Two golf carts are included with the rental. If you bring a boat or kayak, there is a new, free, great launching area called Russ' Point which is immediately on the north side of Fripp Island Bridge. It has two concrete ramps and a new aluminum pier.

This is a NO SMOKING and NO PETS vacation house.

Great Location for Family Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

This house did not disappoint! The location was great! Easy access to beach, golf, & pool. The golf carts provided made getting around the island so easy. The view from the porch is the best on the island & a great breeze rolls in every evening! We loved it!

House was just as advertised. Wonderful home with wonderful views. So open and spacious. Nice to have golf carts included in rental and convenient not to have to rent them elsewhere. Thoroughly enjoyed being on the canal and rented our kayaks for the week from Bubbas. Kayaked over to Pritchards Island and explored. So much fun. House had everything we needed, so nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom. Kitchen was fully equiped and met all our needs. We've been Fripping since 2001, so we love the island. Only second time we used VRBO, but so glad we did, received much more for our money.

great family house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your house July 4th week. The kids enjoyed fishing and crabbing off the dock, we bought kayaks with us and enjoyed rowing down the canal. The house was very clean, family friendly and the kitchen was awesome. When you consider the use of two golf carts this house is a deal..We plan to rent again next year,,

Wonderful vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 is currently enjoying our last day in this wonderful beach house. The location of the house is excellent with beach access only minutes away by golf cart (included with home) or you can fish the canal off your private dock! The house was immaculate upon arrival and any questions or needs were addressed by the owners in a timely fashion. The house is only 4 houses away from Davis Love Park, which our children enjoyed every day (volleyball, basketball, and playground). The owners provide 2 golf carts, bicycles, and a fully stocked kitchen. Great beach house in paradise! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home! Many blessings.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this house over Thanksgiving and found it to be exactly as advertised. The place was very clean and well furnished. The dock was great for fishing and the house is super close to the park, which the kids enjoyed. Our deposit was returned promptly by the owners.

We hope to return again!

Not all it's advertised to be

  • 2 of 5

This is not a four bedroom house! It is three bedrooms with essentially a walk-in closet converted to a fourth bedroom. The pictures can be deceiving. Also for such a nice view from the porch, there is not any furniture to sit out there and enjoy. Careful with the cleaning policy as well, because either the maid or the owner will take advantage and charge an additional cleaning charge. No legitimate justification and the owner did not seem too concerned about the veracity of the maids's story. Perhaps I should have been a little leary when I noticed the Viking kitchen with limited utensils and other necessities. Not even $0.25 cheap wine glasses! Plenty of other great homes and pleasant owners on the island. Interesting that there aren't any reviews posted on here. Stay away!

Owner's Response: We enclosed the front porch to have a fourth bedroom since no one ever used the front porch. Every other renter has commented that it worked out great for them as well. The extra cleaning charge of $50 was taken out of the deposit since we had to pay that amount in additional cleaning. The house was not left in very good condition but our housekeeper spent the additional time to clean up after your stay. Our kitchen is well stocked with everything you could ask for on a beach trip. Sorry we don't drink so we do not have wine glasses. We try to make sure every renter is happy but there are some that apparently cant be satisfied.
