The bathrooms are tile floors with new counters and all new fixtures.

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.

Parris Island Graduation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our large group of family for our son's graduation from boot camp. We had 14 adults that stayed. We were able to attend the daily events and unwind as a group in the evening. Or have a private stroll on the beach. Only a 35 minutes drive to and from Parris Island depending on traffic.

Awesome property steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends stayed here for 3 nights. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed. Also had some additional amenities like ping pong, games, books, and cornhole (bean bag toss) set. We actually had a March Madness tournament on the front lawn! The nearby beach is one of the nicest I've ever been on. We plan on returning sometime.

Perfect Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the third year we have rented this house from the Gatley's. The property is perfect for our family of seven! We enjoy coming on the off season, so we get our own private paradise! The close beach access and wonderful natural features of the island have helped us make lasting family memories. The house is perfect for accommodating a large family as well as hosting additional friends and family for meals and gatherings. Marla is a joy to work with, and will do everything in her power to ensure you have an enjoyable stay! This place is a gem and we look forward to future trips to Fripp!!

Beautiful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for my son's graduation from MCRD Parris Island. We had room for all the attending family, enjoyed the common living areas, and the beach. There were games to play, bikes to ride, not to mention it was great walking around seeing the beautiful neighborhood. The owner was easy to reach and maintains the home very well. Almost anything you need for the kitchen is there. We would love to return in the future.

We spent 4 days in this lovely beach home over the Thanksgiving holiday and absolutely loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The house accommodated our large family of 12 easily and the living room/kitchen area was very spacious for cooking and gathering together. Excellent Wi-Fi signal and awesome beach access. Island folks friendly and great biking/running trails as well as beachcombing 24/7. Marla our hostess, was wonderful in getting us numerous guest passes and making everything perfect for our holiday gathering.
