About the property

3 Br, 3 Bath, 2 Kitchen Home With 2800 Sq Ft, And Many Special Amenities

Fripp Island, The Island Getaway That You've Dreamed About

This coastal home is located on a road that seems to magically rise up out of the marsh and is referred to as a “tree house”, as it is nestled in a private, beautiful area of palmettos and pines. The 2800 sq.ft. home is delightful with a 150 degree view of the marsh, where egrets nest in the marsh grasses and soar overhead in the blue sky and you enjoy the distant view of the marina with boats moving out the waterway to the Atlantic. Decorated in a delightful color scheme of earthy blues & greens, it is an extension of the beauty and peaceful setting of nature right outside the door that will take your breath away. The easy living floor plan of 2 levels adds to the comfort and convenience. The first floor has 1 BR, 1 Bath, Family Room and Kitchen. The second floor has 2 BR, 2 Baths, Great Room, Dining, Kitchen, Laundry and Decks... a great solution for 2 couples traveling together. Comfort of this home is not a secret with the many special amenities of down furniture, Bose stereo system, dining for 8, dreamy king & queen beds, and a chat group / hammock on the deck.

Great Escape!

  • 4 of 5

Our family's first time at the Octagonal Tree House. Nancy the owner was prompt in responding, friendly and a gracious host. The house is in a good location, clean, very relaxing. If this house doesn't have the best view over the marsh I would be shocked. My family and I still miss the view a month later. The location of the house is in a great location on a narrow finger peninsula extending into the marsh away from the main thoroughfare of the island so there wasn't a lot of traffic out in front of the house which was awesome, yet still within walking, biking or golf cart distance to everywhere on the island. Very pleased with our stay.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been visiting Hurley Haven annually since 2005, and we will continue to do so. Tastefully decorated in a relaxing beach theme, the house features all the amenities you will need to settle in and enjoy the benefits of "home away from home" while experiencing the allure of ocean living. The beauty of this house is rivaled only by the setting in which it is located. You will be enthralled by early morning sunrise and late evening sunsets viewed from the comfort of the large, back deck or the window-lined living room overlooking the island marsh. The inclusion of on-site bicycles and kayaks is a wonderful convenience providing hours of enjoyment for young and old alike. Located just a few, short miles from the oceanfront, the seclusion of this property invites you to rest and solitude, while still giving ample opportunity to enjoy the fun of beach life. If you're searching for a place to relax and refresh, look no further. Hurley Haven is perfect in every way!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our daughter, her husband and three children to Hurley Haven and had a wonderful time. The house is so tastefully decorated and the attention given to the guests needs is exceptional. It feels like you are walking into the home of a relative, so comfortable. Fripp Island is an exceptional place; the minute you drive across the bridge into this gated community you exhale and enjoy the slower pace and the nature that surrounds you. Initially, I was a little anxious about my grandchildren (ages 12, 8 and 6) staying on a nature preserve/bird sanctuary as they are used to Myrtle Beach but from the first day I knew it was a hit. Pier Fishing, crabbing, bike riding, walking the beach at sunrise and sunset, and that is just a few of the things we did. Hunting Island State Park is just over the bridge from Fripp they offer daily activities for children and most are free. If there is a fee, it’s minimal. My daughter asked her children if they wanted to come to Fripp Island again or go to Myrtle Beach and they all said, “Fripp”! We loved it.

A Great Escape to Hurley Haven

  • 5 of 5

We discovered this home three years ago while staying at another vacation house on Fripp Island. This home is truly a gem! It will comfortably accommodate two families. Each having their own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining area and living room with foldout couches for larger families. The home is decorated in a southern sea coast style. Turquois, sea foam green and yellow coloring accent and brighten every room of the home. Bamboo rugs and wallcoverings have been incorporated to add texture. There are no second hand or bargain brand furnishings. The home is exquisitely furnished while having a down home comfort. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you can imagine.

From one side of the home, you have a panoramic view of the sky from sunrise to sunset. When you wake up in the morning you’ll view the sun rise while looking out over the marsh and see wild life abound. You’ll listen to the birds calling out as the fiddler crabs click their claws. Deer occasionally pass under the deck area. In the evening, you’ll recline into plush couches and chairs as you watch the brilliant sunset. Paradise! Over the past years, we have been all over the island and you will not find a better view of the sunset.

And what additionally makes the stay at this home so enjoyable is the owner herself. Nancy is so understanding. She has been able to flex and meet our needs when we have needed to change our reservation dates. She always checks in with us before, during and after our stay to see if we need anything from her.

We have stayed at this house the past three years and already have our reservations in for next year. We plan to continue to return for years to come and hopefully extend our stay to two months. Fripp Island with its beautiful scenery and sandy beaches accompanied by this beautiful home make for a perfect relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable vacation!

Just What Everyone Needs!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hurley Haven last week. It was absolutely wonderful. The whole family loved it and the area. The marsh is alive with many birds & wildlife. The deer are so relaxed and you can get very close to them which excited the little ones! The house is just as relaxing as described with beautiful décor. It was delightful to find the kitchen stocked to meet my expectation and more. The kayaks & bikes were great fun for everyone. It was actually a big delight to be away from everything including TV for a whole week. The house was designed great for our three generation family with a wide variation of ages. It worked wonderful to give everyone "their own space". I so enjoyed working with Nancy. She is very pleasant and very easy to work with. Thanks for your hospitality! We will definitely return again.
