Property description

Your ultimate vacation beach house starts with 2 ten foot wide porches, each equipped with rockers and hammocks. The front porch also has a swing and spectacular unobstructed views of the marsh and unrivaled marsh sunsets. We are fortunate to have the only Fripp home with full size porches viewing both the ocean and marsh sunsets.

The beachside porch has rockers, hammock, and a table for your morning coffee with sunrises for early risers, dining, etc. In season you will want to reach out and touch the shrimp boats and then go to the nearby docks for fresh seafood. The porch leads to an open deck seating area with shower, which in turn leads to the beach. At low tide, your 400ft wide beach extends north for 3 miles and south for 12 houses to a half mile sandbar and an inlet. The inlet fronts onto the adjacent undeveloped Prichards Island with two miles of pristene beaches for a more varied island beach experince. This island is accessible via kayak or boat and is devoted to sea turtle research. At mid tide, the beach is 200 ft wide and has a tidal pool for the little ones. At high tide, there is essentially no beach giving you time to rest in one of the 3 hammocks, explore the island, visit one of the islands six pools and other club amenities available to our guests with purchase of amenity cards. Amenities include two golf courses, ten tennis courts, six pools, children's camp, restaurants, cruises, gym, computer business center, equipment rental, shops, and more. Located to the north beyound the islands security gate and bridge is Hunting Island which includes a spectacular light house. Did we mention crabbing, surf fishing, guided creek and deep sea fishing?

The sunroom has a panoramic ocean view. It has a love seat and three chairs for reading, relaxing and visiting. There also is a game table for family fun plus a built in desk for computer/printers(WiFi) for those who want to keep in touch with the 'other world'. The living room includes 2 sofas plus 2 oversized arm chairs, TV, DVD, CD, fireplace and is open to the kitchen and dining areas. The open dining area has a large 10 seat dining table which combined with the kitchen counter bar and game table will accommodate everyone. The kitchen includes 2 refrigerators with ice machines, 2 ovens, one flat cook top, an island and plenty of open pantry storage. The kitchen is equipped with all modern appliances. Both porches, all bedrooms, L.R. and Sunroom have ceiling fans.The basement cook area includes a gas grill and burners-pots for shrimp and crab boils.


The bedrooms sleep 12 as follows:

Master Bedroom with spectacular ocean views- King with private full bath, TV, DVD,VCR, Sofa and doubles as the grandchildren's entertainment center when no one is napping.

Great grandmothers Private Hall Bedroom- Double bed, TV, and utilizes full hall bath equipped with hand bars for safe usage and can double as son-in-law sports viewing room.

Family Bedrooms #1 & #2- Each includes a double bed and a single bed, sleeping 3 each. Both share a private full shower bathroom.

Ground Level Bedroom- Two single beds with private full shower bath and TV is accessed from the kitchen area via an enclosed stairwell. This is ideal for teens, newlyweds and others seeking privacy. We have found that the adjacent slighly enlarged entrance way is an ideal quite place for the babys playpin(crib).

The house has recently been remodeled throughout. The front and ocean porches include child gates. The ground level stairwell is accessible from the garage for all weather access. Washers and dryers are located on the main living floor. The Master Bedroom is connected to the kitchen enabling the hostess to better serve her guests. SOMEBODY has to keep order in paradise.

The islands wildlife includes porpoises that patrol off the beach and can be intercepted via kayak, deer that are readily approached, sea turtles that require late night beach patrol and our favorite taking granchildren hunting alligators who should always be viewed from afar. The well supplied basement carrol includes 3 double sit-on-top kayaks and 1 child's kayak,life vest,crab supplies making for exceptional fun in the ocean, cannal, creeks, short trips to the adjacent island, visiting the amenity pools and sightseeing. Equipment rentals include golf cars, scooters, bicycles, boats, kayaks, jet skis, etc.

Sunday check out allows your weekend guests time to stay through Sunday morning. Off season rentals are generally arranged through Monday to give you even more flexibility for your guests whom can only get in a long weekend in paradise. Check in is 4pm and check out is 10am to allow adequate servicing time. Make your own schedule in the offseason to include ten day two full weekend stays,etc.

PARADISE = Beach - Sun Sets - Hammocks - Shrimp Boats - Deer - Gators - Golf - Pools - Family - Grandchildren -

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My family and I have been coming to Fripp Island now for 40 years. We decided to purchase a home in 1998 so that the children and grandchildren would be able to enjoy this unique family oriented island for years into the future.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We chose Fripp Island because of its beautiful beaches, pool and sports amenities, abundant wildlife and secure gatted access.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy relaxing with family and friends but particuely enjoy seeing our children and ourselves introducing the granchildren to the beach wonders of the lowcountry.
