Private Homes house description

Fripp Island is a gated beach and golf community 20 miles from the historic town of Beaufort SC.

Summerwind is a beautiful second row home with a large gourmet kitchen and expansive open living areas. It has amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Fripp Canal and the Tidal Marsh from one screened and three open porches as well as from a large Captain's walk. We are just steps from the beach and a short ride from the Beach Club, Ocean Creek Golf Course and the Marina.
The house has a landscaped back yard with access to a private dock so you can bring your own boat, kayaks or water scooters. There is a fish cleaning station on the dock. A four person Golf cart is included in weekly rentals. Additional carts available at discount rates.

Fripp Canal has direct access to Skull Inlet and leads to some of the best fishing grounds on the East Coast. You'll enjoy spending time with friends and family in the large open living areas with a 60 inch flat screen TV and professional home entertainment center with speakers in several rooms. The chefs in your party will be thrilled with the gourmet kitchen complete with granite counter tops, a Wolf gas range with a large griddle and double ovens, 3 sinks, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a second refrigerator in the pantry. The back deck has a Weber gas grill. There is a front load washer and a dryer on each floor.
You can enjoy ocean views from the upstairs front bedrooms and adjoining deck, marsh and canal views from the rear living areas and decks. However, the best views are from the Captain's walk: 360 degree unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Fripp Canal and fabulous sunsets over the Tidal Marsh. You are on the quiet southern tip of Fripp and the beach is only a few steps away. There is a closed-in outdoor rain-shower for rinsing off the sand.

Dual garage door entrances allow you covered parking for two/three vehicles, and three more vehicles can easily be parked in the driveway.

4 Amenity cards included in weekly rental. Extra cards available for purchase. Cards give renters access to two golf courses, tennis courts, 5 pools and several restaurants.

Rental weeks run Sunday to Sunday in the summer. 3 nights minimum for rentals in the off-season.
Principal renter must be 25 years or older.

Welcome to our home, we hope you will enjoy many stays as our guests.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: We are a family of four from NC and we bought this beautiful home in 2009. We will have plenty of room for friends and family to visit. We also hope that you as our renter will enjoy time with your friends and family at Summerwind.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          We fell in love with this quiet, beautiful Island with great beaches, and lots of interesting places to bike and walk. We enjoy visiting Hunting Island State Park, just minutes from the Fripp Island entrance gate. We also like to drive into the historic town of Beaufort for dining, shopping, carriage rides and a stroll at the gorgeous waterfront area.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This home has everything we wanted: Ocean and Marsh views, a private dock, and is only steps from the beach. The Sunsets and sunrises seen from the Captain's walk are absolutely fabulous. The kitchen is a gourmet cooks dream! Everybody loves to gather in the expansive great room.
