Enjoy a relaxing and fun stay at our upscale ocean front 'southern villa!' Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a respite from a busy professional life, or a way to celebrate that special occasion, our 'adults only' one-bedroom villa is a perfect choice!
About Our Villa:
In addition to stunning views of the Atlantic, we offer a level of luxury and attention to detail not found in most vacation rentals! Our elegant furnishings, original artwork, and ideal location have been chosen with care and will definitely help you feel pampered and special throughout your stay.
Our living room slider door is just steps from the water and our front patio overlooks New Haven's large 'ocean viewing deck'. Our villa is conveniently located on the main level with great views of the ever-changing and beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Sunsets and sunrises are plentiful as you relax in comfortable rocking chairs, sipping your morning coffee or evening cocktail.
The interior of our villa is fabulously decorated in southern 'island style' with original artwork and quality furnishings and accessories. Flooring, furniture and window treatments are new. The bedroom has a new Serta iComfort queen bed and luxurious quality bedding.
Our kitchen is designed for gourmet cooks! In fact, although the Beaufort area boasts many excellent restaurants, our fully-equipped kitchen literally invites you to 'cook in.' Views of the ocean from almost every window (including the dining room), along with a beautiful outdoor grilling area, definitely tempt you to 'dine in.'
Our villa is an end unit with lots of windows and natural light, sufficient storage for your personal items, and a new Bosch washer and dryer.
We offer unlimited long distance calling and wireless internet access for guests who need or want to remain 'connected' while on vacation. We also offer new televisions in the living and bedrooms, as well as a collection of movies, CD's, and a BOSE stereo system with concert hall sound.
An additional BONUS for guests: Use of our personal golf cart (affectionately known on the island as 'Sweet Pea') is included in our rental rate! This special transportation is a retail value of $250-300 per week and gives you a relaxing and scenic way to explore our special island paradise and to visit the many neighborhoods, beaches, and wildlife viewing areas.
About Our Location:
You will see why we fell in love with Fripp Island and our unique location when you look at the aerial photo of our complex! Located in the prestigious Ocean Point area of Fripp Island, our villa is part of The Village of New Haven and is modeled after an actual English 'seaside village'. New Haven juts into the Atlantic Ocean and is wrapped on two sides by water.
Our villa is truly 'ocean front' (not inlet view) and faces south with wonderful sunrise and sunset views. Steps from our door is a large 'ocean viewing deck' which is a great place for watching birds, dolphins, and shrimp boats, reading a great book, chatting with friends, or just relaxing. Numerous walkways and seating areas all feature stunning ocean views.
In addition to our fabulous natural surroundings, we are located next door to the Ocean Point Pool and just across the street from the Ocean Point Golf Course and Ocean Point Grill. Just a short drive from our villa are five additional swimming pools, Ocean Creek Golf Course, six tennis courts, a small fitness center, and numerous public beach access areas.
Three-mile long Fripp Island is a designated 'nature sanctuary' with natural bike and walking paths and expansive views of surrounding tidal marshes, lagoons, and best of all, the Atlantic Ocean!
About The Owners:
Our names are Plummer and Jeri Mifflin. We love to travel and discovered and fell in love with Fripp Island over sixteen years ago. Though we have travelled throughout the world (including Alaska, Europe, Mexico, the Carribean, and the Greek Islands), we knew instantly that Fripp was a special paradise and purchased our villa on our first visit. Plum retired as an independent contractor in East Lansing, Michigan, and Jeri is a retired school principal. We love going to Fripp on our vacations and enjoy sharing our home with you!
Some Extra Options You Can Consider...
As our guests, you will always enjoy the quiet beauty and peacefulness of Fripp, including the beach, two on-island golf courses, walking and biking paths, and many on- and off-island attractions. Our rental rate includes all linens and departure clean. South Carolina tax (11%) and optional Fripp Club amenity cards are extra.
The purchase of amenity cards entitles you to 'guest membership' in the private Fripp Club, including use of all club facilities (e.g. restaurants, fitness center, pools, and tennis courts). Amenity cards must be reserved at least one week prior to your visit. Cost for amenity cards from Memorial through Labor Day is $50 per person per week. Cost during the 'off season' is $35 per person per week.
In summary...incredible ocean views, upscale decor, original artwork, and beautiful furnishings, combined with staying at one of the South's undiscovered and premiere vacation destinations, will make your vacation in our 'Southern Home' one to remember forever!
Special Notes: Our goal is to ensure the highest level of quality for our guests. Therefore, our villa is designed for 'adults only' and not equipped or decorated for families with young children. We rent only by the week (Sat. to Sat.) and do not allow smoking or pets.

ReviewsWrite a review
We felt comfortable in this villa the minute we walked through the door. It is very tastefully decorated, and well maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked, anything we needed was available. Linens, hair dryer, beach towels & chairs, and numerous other items were provided. The owners seem to have thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. It is truly an oceanfront unit, and we enjoyed sitting in the rockers looking at the amazing views. The extra bonus is "Sweet Pea" the provided golf cart and preferred mode of island transportation. The underground garage parking for our car was a plus also. We fell in love with Fripp Island and hope to return yearly. This was a wonderful and relaxing vacation for us and we would recommend this villa to any adult couple.

I return every Christmas holiday and am in repeatedly in awe of the amazing views - dolphins almost every day out by the rocks, a mink that runs the shore, the sand, the sunrises and oh, the sunsets! The villa is elegant and is very well kept. it is comfortable and has everything you Would need or want. And Sweet Pea, the golf cart, is an added bonus for use at the golf course, for sunset rides or a quick trip to the island store. The old downtown in Beaufort is so quaint and it is fun to browse the shops. There is a good coffee shop and some very good restaurants. There are also some cute shops to check out between town and the island.

What a lovely condominium! Absolutely gorgeous. We had everything we needed; everything was so well taken care of. The location was perfect. Truly was oceanfront! The owner's description was accurate; it was nice to know ahead of time that oceanfront did not mean you could swim there due to the current. Nonetheless, what a view!!!! We would definitely recommend this condo to a couple. We did find restaurants very limited on the island, so we had to drive at least 20 - 30 minutes off the island to find restaurants, but that was okay with us. A great perk was the "adults only" pool that was only a short ride in "sweet pea". Truly loved the convenience of the golf cart. What a great week!

About the owner: When we are not at Fripp Island, we maintain a year-round home in mid-Michigan near the campus of Michigan State University (Go Spartans!). Plum is a retired building contractor, and Jeri is a retired school principal. We both love to travel and also enjoy spending time at our northern Michigan cabin, located on the National Wild and Scenic Pine River in the Manistee National Forest. There we canoe, kayak, read, and enjoy sightings of deer, turkeys, fox, and even black bear! When not in Michigan, we love being at Fripp Island--a true 'southern paradise.' A passion for both of us is the game of golf which we avidly pursue together and with friends. We enjoy spending winter months at Fripp and look forward to sharing our villa with guests during spring, summer and fall months!!!
Why the Owner Chose New Haven Villas:
We fell in love with Fripp on our first trip over sixteen years ago to visit friends at their beachfront home! Shelling, kite flying, crabbing, surf fishing, golf, and the quiet beauty of nature captivated us then and enthralls us still. We love so many things about Fripp--meeting friendly people from all over the U.S. and world, observing brilliant starry nights, taking quiet beach walks, walking over to the first golf tee, and driving our golf cart (Sweet Pea) on rides to see the abundant wildlife. We love Fripp--a beautiful Audubon nature preserve featuring deer, egret, alligators, osprey, and dolphins. Best of all, we love the many friends we have made over the years and enjoy our reunions as we return year after year to our beautiful island paradise!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Guests staying at our villa will find our villa unlike 'typical' rental properties. We maintain it to the luxurious standards that we want for ourselves on a vacation--with upscale furnishings and great attention to all the details guests wish for on a memorable vacation. Our unique location gives guests a short walk to golf, pool, beach, and dining--without ever getting in a car. With our villa facing south on the Atlantic Ocean, you can see sunrises and sunsets from our front deck! A glass of wine or cup of coffee while relaxing in our rockers relaxes even the busiest professional. Watching dolphins frolic and shrimp boats head out to sea mean this is definitely life at its finest!
