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.
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!
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.
We really loved this house!
It is a true getaway and a perfect home away from home! It has everything you could ask for (family games, books, cd/dvd player, wireless internet etc.), the house is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is very spacious.
The marshland views that can be enjoyed from the deck (there is a great seating area and a hammock) and the kitchen/livingroom area through panoramic windows are just amazing! Lots of wildlife, great sunsets and the whole setting is so quiet, peaceful and relaxing that you don't really want to go anywhere else :-)
It was also fun to watch the change of the tides.
We especially enjoyed going kayaking (kayaks and bikes are provided). The kayaks can be launched from the house 1 hour before high tide and we kayaked almost every day for about 2 hours. 1 kayak can comfortably hold an adult and a smaller child under 10. There is a marina close-by that can also be reached with the kayaks. We explored the island with the bikes several times.
The island is a quiet/peaceful island where you can go golfing, hang out at the beach, go kayaking or biking. If you need to go shopping or get groceries for your vacation, Beaufort is a 30 minute drive away. Hunting Island is just around the corner.
Nancy is very nice, responsive and easy to work with. I am sure we will be back in the future. We can highly recommend this vacation rental, you won't be disappointed!
The Tree House is a wonderful vacation venue. The upstairs main part of the house is tastefully decorated and has a panoramic view of the salt marsh. Waking up each morning and enjoying a cup of coffee while taking in the view of the marsh, birds and other wildlife was a real treat. The spacious house has rooms that are bright and airy and beds which are very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped for those times when cooking fresh shrimp or local seafood on the grill and having a cocktail on the deck may be preferable to going out.
Hunting Island State Park is close by offering beaches (there are beaches on Fripp Island as well), walking trails, fishing pier and a lighthouse. Beaufort is about a half hour away and a great place to explore shops, restaurants and the historic district. Fripp Island can be explored using the bicycles and kayaks included in the rental.
Nancy is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We very much enjoyed our stay at Hurley Haven.
We are frequent renters and Hurley Haven on Fripp Island was greater than every house we had stayed in before. Not only is this octagonal tree house spacious and comfortable, it is beautiful! The island-style interior decoration is gorgeous (pictures really don’t do it justice!) and the entire house has a luxurious but very homey feel. The house is very private, surrounded by palm trees, pines, and a pretty marshland with unique birds and breathtaking sunsets that you can enjoy from the large deck.
We were very impressed with all the amenities that came with the house, from the generously equipped kitchen to the awesome stereo sound system. We were also very happy that the house came with six bikes – this was the best way to explore this nature paradise! The entire island is very kid- and bike-friendly; in the street this house is on, we saw more deer than cars. We also took the kids out to the marsh with the kayaks once during high tide – it was an adventure to get the kayaks in and out of the water but the kids had so much fun!
Nancy is a super helpful owner. She responded to our emails and phone calls promptly, and made sure even during our stay that we were OK and had everything we needed. I could not say enough good things about our experience at Hurley Haven. We look forward to coming back :)
This lovely property on the marsh at Fripp Island is a gem. Built like a mushroom, it has a panoramic view of a tidal marsh from the kitchen, dining room and living room. Days spent in what is affectionately known as the "treehouse" are like watching a slow motion IMAX movie of the changing life on a saltwater inlet which often concludes with a spectacular sunset. On one occasion, we saw 8 great egrets feeding. On the late afternoon of our arrival, we were greeted by the hooting of a horned owl sitting in a tree near the deck. The owl returned numerous times throughout our stay, and we often heard his/her soft hooting when we went to bed. That first evening was also marked by the surprising sight of 3 racoons at dusk who swam towards the shore just below the deck where they bunked in the tall grass for the night because an exceptionally high tide had flooded their usual homes on hummocks in the marsh. Deer can also be regularly spotted sauntering along the verge of the marsh in front of the "treehouse".
This home is tastefully decorated and furnished. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped. We used the spacious master bedroom and turned the unused guest bedroom, which is decorated in soft blues, into a "prayer and meditation sanctuary". Located near the end of a peninsula that juts out into the marsh, the large trees and ample foliage - even in winter - provide complete privacy.
The owner was very friendly and genuinely concerned that we enjoy the property. She was prompt and accommodating in all our communications.
We would love to return to Fripp Island and spend a month at this remarkable property!
