                            We have stayed in this villa several times and we are never disappointed. The owner's are so nice and they make sure everything is perfect. We love Fripp Island because it is so relaxing. Not commercial at all. The deer are everywhere and come right up to you. We love riding our bikes and there are plenty of bike paths all over the island. We enjoy eating at Dockside and Johnson Creek Tavern, they have wonderful seafood. We will always come back to Fripp!

                            We had a nice long weekend at Fripp in Unit 217. The location of the villa is perfect. It's right across from the adult pool, another kid-friendly pool, the food court, a lounge and the beach! The marina and island excursion store is just a short five minute ride away. The outside deck of the villa offers great views of the marsh. Lauren the owner, was very helpful in letting book the villa on somewhat short notice. She also provided some bikes and board games for us to use.

                            After a lot of research we decided upon this place for our first vacation and it was wonderful! The property felt like home away from home. Every little thing we could possibly need was there and then some. The place was very clean and the perfect size. It was great having two full bathrooms so we could shower and go and not miss a beat. The golf cart was great fun and we really enjoyed exploring the area. The beach is very close and the sunsets are amazing! Deer come around every night and the wildlife is simply amazing. We can't wait to come back!

                            We stayed here twice in summer of 2012, I have stayed in many rentals on Fripp and this is my absolute favorite!! It is very beautifully decorated, view is amazing, and owners are so accommodating and concerned. We hope Lauren will be able to fit us in at least twice next summer! Did I mention the superb location?

                            This villa is really charming, we did not realize we had stayed here before until we got there! We were really glad because our previous stay was so great. The location is perfect, and the villa is nicely furnished with towels, lots of cooking utensils, and nice appliances. Great trip and great place to stay, we will defiantly be back. :)

                            We stayed for a week in this wonderful villa and did not want to leave. It was a wonderful beach and a wonderful villa. I have only one regret and that is we should have rented for two weeks. The villa was very clean and had everything we needed to make it an easy, laid back kind of vacation!! Can't wait rent again next year. The Pressleys were soo helpful and made renting a joy not a chore, he even called to make sure evything was to our liking once we arrived. Can't say enough good things about theses people and their villa.

                            Another lovely stay at this condo! Looks just like the pictures and is always clean and ready for your arrival. We took my 80 year old mom, our 26 year old daughter and our 2-1/2 year old grandgirl. All had a great time. A niece came down and joined us for a few days as well. This is such a beautiful property- just watching the tides coming in to the marsh is so relaxing. The golf cart is such a bonus- Park your car and cruise the island while you take in all of the nature. We love to watch the deer, look for alligators, and even saw a baby raccoon on the golf course! Didn't know they played! Try Emily's for a nice dinner-either tapas or full meals- the Filet was cooked to perfection, and the SheCrab soup was fabulous. Met the owner, great guy, and it is worth the drive back in to Beaufort. Mom enjoyed visiting the lighthouse and Hunting Island State Park. Bought fresh seafood from place just past the surf shop- Sea Bass and beautiful shrimp. My favorite place to get shrimp is SC! We look forward to another return visit in the near future!

                            Our stay at the villa on Fripp Island was delightful! This is not our first time to stay, and every visit has been wonderful! The villa is always clean, and well maintained. It is a short ride in the golf cart to the beach access just across the street. I always enjoy the inner-coastal water way view from the back window of the villa. The walking and biking trails are fun to follow, and in the early morning, you can see various birds and wildlife along the walk ways! The owners are always helpful and accommodating to work with, and the island personnel are friendly. It is a wonderful, peaceful place for a relaxing break!

                            We really enjoyed our stay here during spring break. Everything in the villa was just as it appears in the pictures. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The view was great. It was neat seeing how much the marsh filled with water and emptied every day with the tides. The beach is just a very short walk across the street. The owner called to make sure everything was good for us. We would stay here again. And Fripp is one of our favorite vacation destinations.

                            We had a great stay this summer. The villa is beautifully decorated, and offers great views of the marsh, sunset, and wild life. There were deer right off the deck every night. So glad we rented the golf cart since it's the easy way to get around the island. Will be visiting again soon!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We are originally from Columbia, SC, but we live in Atlanta.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tennis Villas:
                          Our family has been vacationing on Fripp for over 35 years. It is our second home, and we hope you love it just as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to ask about places to eat, and things to see!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Hands down, the our villa provides the best sunset view on the island. In the summer the sun sets directly over the marsh and canal, which our deck over looks. The villa is tucked far enough away where you get peace and quite, but close enough to hear the crashing waves with the windows open. A 5 minute walk or 2 minute golf cart ride right across the street will put you on the most popular part of the beach. The location is just fabulous.
