Year Purchased: 1996
About: We are Larry and Sue Weidner, originally from Edmond Oklahoma. We bought the villa in 1996, but loved the low country so much we decided to move here permanently in 1998.
Why Captain John Fripp Villas: We originally chose Fripp Island to be close to our family in Beaufort while visiting from out of state. We loved the private nature of the island and its unspoiled beauty while still having all the amenities and activities of a resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We love being able to see the beautiful sunrises over the beach from our villa windows or enjoying our morning coffee on the balcony as the sun lights up the ocean. We have spent many happy hours on the beach visiting with family and friends. Our grandchildren practically grew up here on this island, they loved swimming in the ocean and then going to the pool, there were always so many fun activities for them to do here. Our family has enjoyed many Breakfasts with Santa, Easter Egg Hunts, Beach Club Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter Dinners. Over the years we have collected many memorable moments at this Villa and Fripp Island Resort with our family and friends.
