Overview

Saint Helena Island House Rental Photos and Description

3rd Row Ocean, next to beach access, steps to best 24/7 beach on Fripp

Welcome to 'Sandy Shores' Fripp Island 3rd row ocean home. This is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home near the center of the island. It has a ramp off the back of the house for access without using stairs.

Just steps to the best beach on the island.... 120 steps to the boardwalk which provides a 24 hour, 7 days a week beach. You are so close to the water at this uncrowded access with plenty of room to set up for the day, but only a few feet from the high tide line. It is also the best part of the beach to boogie board and surf. We are located just 2 blocks from the Beach Club.

This newly renovated home (November 2012) sleeps 15 people comfortably in the 4 bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have their own full bathroom and flat screen TV. The 4th bedroom is a bunk room for kids. The kitchen was a total remodel and has all new appliances, granite countertops, new cabinetry, tile floor, and is generously furnished. There are 3 dining areas in this spacious home (2,450 square feet of living space) plus a table on the deck for outdoor dining. The living room has a new 40' flat screen TV. The bathrooms are tile floors with new counters and all new fixtures.

Bedroom setup:

Bedroom 1: King bed, twin daybed with twin trundle (sleeps 4), flat screen TV, private bathroom. (main level)

Bedroom 2: 2 Queen beds, twin daybed with twin trundle (sleeps 6), flat screen TV, private bathroom. (main level)

Bedroom 3: 2 Twin beds (sleeps 2), flat screen TV, shared bathroom with bunk room. (second floor)

Bedroom 4: Bunk bed, full plus twin (sleeps 3), shared bathroom with bedroom 3. There is no door on the bunk room and a shared closet in the hall with bedroom #3 (second floor)

Included In Rental: 3 adult bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys. The cleaning fee is included in the price of the rental. Please note that we no longer provide a golf cart, but they are available for rent on the island.

Amenity cards are available for purchase. These must be used to access pools, tennis courts, restaurants, and the 2 championship golf courses.

About Marla Gatley

We live in Kansas and have spent our summers on Fripp Island since 2006.

Marla Gatley purchased this house in 2012

Why Marla Gatley chose Beaufort area

We love this property because it is so close to the best beach on Fripp Island with 24/7 beach, even at high tide. The house sits next to the boardwalk that leads to the beach. It is near the center of the island, just 2 blocks from the Beach Club, which includes the pools, food court, tennis courts, shopping, Sand Bar, gym, and countless activities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I just got home from my son's Marine Corps Graduation. It was the most remarkable event! I want to say that your home is absolutely beautiful. We all had our own space, had a great time at the beach yesterday afternoon, and had extended family for a cookout on Friday evening. My son has a few friends who have enlisted since he started boot camp and you can bet I will highly recommend your property. Thank you for opening your home to us.

Beautiful Home and Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Fripp Island. Our family of 9 (6 adults 3 children) recently stayed in this beautiful home. Owners, Marla and Greg, were genuinely kind and accommodating, and went over the top to ensure that our visit was pleasant. Their beautiful home met all our needs except for the twin beds upstairs which my husband and I slept on. The mattresses were uncomfortable for us and we're probably more suitable for young folk. I expressed my disappointment to Marla and Greg who met us there soon after our arrival. They kindly reminded me that the beds were exactly as represented in the featured photos of the home. I agreed. In fact, per my request upon booking the home, two comfortable chairs were added to the living room. In spite of my and my husband's sleeping discomfort, we spent a fabulous week with our family on Fripp Island, the ultimate family vacation destination!

What a great home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. It was the perfect size for the amount of people we had join us at the property and it was a 2 minute walk to the beach. The owners were extremely responsive and helpful. We will be coming back next year!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This property is well equipped and maintained. The location is perfect; extremely close to the beach without OF prices and all Fripp amenities are close-by. Everything but the weather was perfect! Even though it was cool and windy we managed to find the heated pool that was sheltered from the NE wind that had spectacular views.

Perfect Rental for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We recently traveled down for our son's graduation from Parris Island on 3/11/2016. The home was perfect. We had 14 people in our group, including our new Marine and everyone had a place to sleep, the home was clean, the owner was great to work with and everything I was told was true. We were exactly 35 from the gates of Parris Island but the drive was not bad at all. There are tons of deer on Fripp Island, we were about 50 yards from the beach and it was overall just a very nice place to stay. Would book again in a heartbeat!
