Property description

Fripp Island is a private island on the Atlantic Ocean located between Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia. Vacations here are like no other. Our beautiful beaches, wildlife and peaceful setting provide the perfect get away for friends and family. Park your car upon arrival and you may not move it until you pack to go home. Golf carts and bikes are the most popular mode of traffic on the island. Spend your days looking for shells, enjoying the beach, watching for dolphins who frequent our waters or enjoy any of the many scheduled activites on the island. We fell in love with this special place over a decade ago and are so happy to be able to now own a small piece of this paradise and share it with you!!!

"Be As You Are" is a beautiful, six-bedroom home located center island and on the canal. We are on the 3rd row from the beach and enjoy being able to hear the sounds of the ocean when everything else is quiet at night. Amenity cards are available so that you can enjoy all the island has to offer. The Marina, Golfing, Pools and Dining options are all nearby. This area of the island is truly ideal for all of your needs. Enjoy fishing and crabbing without ever leaving the yard on our personal fishing dock on the canal. Watch the area wildlife from the Beautiful Carolina Room or Screened Back Porch which are accessed by open and light French doors, or from the rockers on the covered front porch. Two Master Bedrooms with King Beds and 2 Bathrooms are on the 1st floor along with a recently updated Living and Dining Area. There is Also an additional sitting area for playing games or cards which you will find at the house for your enjoyment. The kitchen is well stocked for a large crowd. You will find all the appliances you need including toasters, blenders, coffee makers, mixers and utensils for a large group. There are 2 Refrigerators with ice makers provided so you have all the space you need to feed a large group and keep plenty of beverages cold. There is also a large pantry so you have all the storage room you need for your stay. A laundry area is also located on this floor with a 2nd dryer located in the basement. A 3rd refrigerator is in the basement for your fishing & bait needs. Upstairs you will find 4 Bedrooms and 2 baths and a sitting area. BR 1: includes 2 full beds, BR 2: Has a Queen and Twin Bed, BR3: Queen Bed w/jack&jill bath, BR 4: Queen Bed and Twin w/ Jack & Jill Bath. An open air deck is located off of the Carolina room and under the deck you can sit and swing in a secluded porch swing. In the basement you will find a Ping Pong table for young and old both to enjoy. A grill is provided for your outdoor cooking needs. There are also 3 Beach Cruiser bikes and beach toys and chairs for you to use while you visit. A Golf Cart is included with all rentals. As you look around you in the living areas, stair case and other areas of the house take a moment to look at the photos we've shared with you. These are all pictures of OUR memories and are all taken on or around the island. It is this love of Fripp we want to share with you and your family. We think you will love this home as much as we do and hope that you will truly be able to unwind and simply "Be As You Are" Keywords: House #house #canal #waterfront #relax

Location

View Guide powered by:

While on Fripp enjoy all the beautiful scenery and wildlife available. You can take in plenty of activities including shelling, kayaking, paddleboards, nature center, gift shops, golf & swimming. Fripp is a wildlife sanctuary and you can see many species of birds including my favorite The Eagle! You'll see Alligators (do not feed or approach these), deer and others. Fripp is also a favorite nesting area for Sea Turtles. You can see our turtle patrol out each morning around sunrise locating nests. Off the island you'll find Beautiful Beaufort with its great shops and historical homes and great restaurants and nightlife. There are a wealth of historical sights in this area and if you're lucky enough to have a rainy day take some of these sights in. You can take a day trip to Charleston which is around a 2 hour drive, hit the outlet malls in nearby Hilton Head or even venture over to Savannah for an afternoon. However you decide to spend your time while visiting our beautiful island, you are sure to leave with memories to last a lifetime!
