Property description

Great location on this three and a half mile island, our tennis villa is just across the street from the Beach, Beach Club, Food Court, and swimming pools. A large deck provides a beautiful, serene view of the marsh. Wildlife abounds - herons, egrets, pelicans, and deer have all been spotted from the deck. Centrally located on the island, this townhouse villa is recently painted and redecorated for your comfort. It is fully furnished and linens are provided. We also provide games, cards, and reading materials for your enjoyment.

On the first floor, the master bedroom has a king-size bed with generous closet and drawer space. In addition to a full bath, dining room, and fully-equipped kitchen, there is also a living room that faces the marsh and deck with a sleeper sofa. A TV and VCR are also located in the living room. Our villa has wireless internet for your use. An alcove in the kitchen houses the washer and dryer. A spiral staircase connects the first floor to the second. The upstairs loft bedroom (decorated with lots of fish) has three twin beds. There is also a full bath, large closet, and dresser, as well as an additional TV and VCR. We request No Smoking inside the villa. Our villa is cleaned prior to your arrival and cleaned again after your departure. Our housekeeper takes pride in careful cleaning of our home.

Fripp Island is a great family vacation place if you are interested in finding a clean, quiet, relaxing beach. There are two golf courses on either end of the island. In addition to the fitness center, Olympic-size pool, and adult pool across the street from the villa, there are also two other pools located on the island. Golf carts and bicycles are available for rental at the Marina. Bike paths cover most of the island. There are also summer programs and camps available for children, as well as charter fishing trips and other nature activities for the adults. Fishing is also available on the nearby Hunting Island 'Paradise Pier.' The beach is easily accessible from the tennis villas (across the street and behind the Beach Club). Fripp is a gated community with a security guard at the entrance.

Our unit comes with a club membership which allow you to purchase amenity cards that enable you to have access to all of the amenities on the island. Golfing is also available off the island at Cat Island and other nearby courses.

If you are interested in exploring off of the island, Beaufort is a beautiful historic city with walking and guided tours. We are also close to Hilton Head and historic Charleston.

Give us a try, and you're sure to come back again and again!

Our villa is conveniently located in the middle of the island, just across from the Beach Club with its restaurant, bar, food court, shops, and swimming pools. Our location allows for convenient bike rides to either end of the island. Beaufort is a historic city well worth exploring, as is Hunting Island State park.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We first experienced Fripp in 1967 when Peggy's family purchased a house on the island. At the time, there were only five homes on the island. While a lot has change on the island, it continues to be a beautiful place that is great for vacations or for year round living.

Why the Owner Chose Tennis Villas:
We love it being a gated community and have never found a place as beautiful as Fripp. The tennis villas are in a great location and affordable. My wife's family began coming to Fripp in 1967.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Peaceful, easy life style. Our favorite time at the beach is at dusk. Villa overlooks marsh which teems with wildlife and which changes color throughout the day and season depending on the tide and sun. In the summer there are camps and activities for children. The bike paths make biking an easy, safe, fun family activity and our villa comes with two bikes (others are available to rent on the island). Deep sea fishing is available from the marina. Golfers enjoy two different courses, and if you play tennis as we do, there are eight beautifully maintained soft courts, as well as various clinics and lessons with a wonderful pro.
