PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS AT ALL REGARDING VRBO NEW "BOOKING FEES" .

We purchased this home in 2010 and totally renovated it to make it just like new. Enjoy all of our new features: kitchen, bathrooms, windows, floors, large screened porch, garage, and exterior siding. We continue to do improvements each year to ensure that our home remains at top quality.

Escape to a secluded “Hidden Treasure” nestled among palm and oak trees with 165’ of Blue Heron lakefront property. Experience the privacy of our large, wooded lot, watching herons, osprey and deer feeding as the sun sets over the lake. It’s the perfect getaway with plenty of room to accommodate one or two families.

Relax in our renovated 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home (sleeps 10-12). A welcoming two-story entrance foyer leads into the vaulted ceiling great room with a fireplace. You will enjoy preparing your favorite meals in our new gourmet kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Or if you prefer, grill outdoors on a new stainless steel, Weber gas grill. The eat-in kitchen has a large 10 foot island. Savor the low country flavors in our dining room overlooking Blue Heron Lake or relax outdoors in our new 16’*16’ screened porch or spacious outdoor, lakeside patio.

The main level has three bedrooms including a master suite overlooking the lake. The main level master suite has a king size bed and updated private bathroom. The other two bedrooms share an updated hallway bathroom, one with two twin beds, the other with one full bed and a bunk bed.

Upstairs is a large master suite with a king size bed, sitting area with futon couch (full size) and a private full bathroom with double vanity and walk-in shower.

The house has been equipped with all new electronics including a wireless router and printer for your laptop. A 47” flat screen TV with internet connectivity is in the family room as well as new TV’s and DVD players in each bedroom. The house and porch have a speaker system wired to accommodate an iPod.

Fripp Island allows you to finally slow down and relax. It is a private, gated island where the main mode of transportation is golf carts. Cruise the island in our golf cart and enjoy the many things that Fripp has to offer!

* Build sandcastles on the beach. Fripp Island has over 3 1/2 miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches. Our house is a 4 block golf cart ride from the beach with convenient access points and available cart parking.

* Swim at one of the five pools on the island including one adult only pool. Kiddies will love one of the three baby pools especially the one with the frog slide.

* Enjoy a round of golf at either of the two Championship golf courses - the George W. Cobb Ocean Point course which overlooks the ocean or Davis Love III Ocean Creek course which received 4 1/2 stars from Golf Digest.

* Kids can try out their golf at the special Wee Links course designed especially for them.

* Play tennis on eight soft Fast-Dry courts and two hard surface courts at the Racquet Club.

* Explore the island's wildlife from deer, alligators, ospreys to an array of beautiful foliage and flowers

* Take crabbing lessons with the family and then come home to cook the catch.

* Join the golf cart scavenger hunt or one of the many offering at the Activity Center.

* Sip a drink at the outdoor Sand Bar while watching the waves crash the shore, or play a game of ping pong or pool at the newly renovated Ocean View Sports Bar

* Enjoy dinner overlooking the marsh at the Bonita Boathouse or one of the four other restaurants on the island.

If you feel like being a little more adventurous, you can explore the historic towns of Beaufort (20 mins), Savannah (75 mins), or Charleston (120 mins).

We have a property manager that lives on the island for prompt attention of any problem.

We love Fripp and hope you will too!

Why Mary McManus chose Fripp Island

We fell in love with Fripp the first time we vacationed in 2007. Fripp Island is a special place that derives its uncommon beauty and serenity from the lack of overbuilding and commercialization.

What makes this house unique

We call our home the Hidden Treasure due to the canopy of palm and oak trees surrounding the property, as well as the unencumbered views of Blue Heron Lake. Compare our pics to other lot views and we’re sure you’ll agree that you truly feel like you’ve escaped.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect for our family or 14. The beach toys and chairs were in good shape. The golf cart was a huge help. We loved seeing the wildlife, especially the deer and alligators. The kitchen was well stocked. We will definitely return to Fripp Island. Thanks for such a great week. Be blessed.

Great family week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Hidden Treasure. The house was perfect for 2 families with small children. The kitchen was a good size and we loved the openness of the living/kitchen/dining areas. Just a short golf cart ride to the beach or the pool made for some very happy and excited kids and adults! Mary was a great host and addressed any needs we had very promptly. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

The property is named Hidden Treasure and it certainly was

  • 5 of 5

This house was outstanding for our family. The large kitchen island made the meal prep easy and everyone could be involved. We all loved getting together every evening at the huge dining room table and enjoying our meals and talking about what we did that day. The bedrooms are nice and comfortable. Everything you need is there except the food and your family. Beach chairs, bicycles, toys, movies, games, wireles internet, dishes, utensils, are all there. Just bring your clothes and be ready for a very relaxing stay. I almost forgot to mention the screened-in porch made for relaxing. I would highly recommend this property and we will be back.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the property justice. We had a wonderful Easter Break Week. Everything was wonderful. The house is fully stocked and nicely decorated. We had an unexpected guest our second night. A huge alligator came up on the bank and did his mating call. The screened in porch is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. We've stayed on Fripp before but we will definitely be coming back to this home. Words can't say enough, everything was great.

Awesome Vacation with Family

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Fripp and our first time staying in Mary's home. Its the perfect place to stay all you need and more is right here. The name says it all "The Hidden Treasure" because its the only place with beautiful views of Blue Heron Lake with a backyard to sit and enjoy. From watching the birds or the deer roaming is absolutely beautiful. We will stay here from now on and highly recommend it to anyone who is planning a trip to Fripp Island.

Peaceful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was third trip to Fripp Island but our second time staying in Mary's house. I don't believe we would ever desire to stay anywhere else! Perfect location for golf cart beach access to very low populated areas of the beach or the busier section near the beach club whichever you desire more. Every morning you can view the lake and all the deer that seem to use the yard as a pass thru. The house is beautiful and very up to date. You feel secluded but are within walking distance or a golf cart ride of everything the island has to offer. If you are looking for a quiet lovely getaway for your family or just a couples getaway I highly recommend this house! Mary is always available when you need her but won't bother you if you don't.
