Enjoy your coffee on the patio with the newspaper or a good book in the morning and Happy Hour and grilling in the evening. A charcoal grill is provided.
During the summer months you may discover giant Loggerhead turtles nesting on the beach at night and tiny turtles hatching from older nests during the day! PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB THE TURTLES. What a sight to see these baby turtles struggle slowly to the ocean in order to one day return as adults. They return to their birth place to lay their eggs and the cycle starts all over again.
Fripp is designated as a wildlife preserve,therefore, deer roam freely. A variety of beautiful birds abounds including pelicans, egrets,osprey and a red bird that loves to perch on or near our patio. Dolphins move rhythmically along the ocean in front of the villa.

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The unit was very clean with lots of amenities - soaps, bags, beach toys, plenty of cookware, etc. We especially loved the abundance of towels and the fun styles of glassware. The owners were accommodating and a pleasure to work with. They were able to fit us in with last minute notice. We really appreciate it! We were only able to stay for a few days but hope to get to come back and stay longer next time.

Owner response: We really appreciate renters like you! Thank you for leaving the villa so clean and straight. You really make our clean up job much easier. Our neighbors even commented about what a nice family we had as our guests that week. We look forward to working with you for your next stay in August 2014.
Truly relaxing vacation!
Truly relaxing vacation!
We have always enjoyed visiting Fripp Island and Capt John Fripp Villa 340 makes it perfect! The villa is very nicely decorated and truly comfortable. The master bedroom is warm & spacious; the guest bedroom is pleasantly furnished and makes the most of space with a Queen and two twin beds. The renovated bath with walk-in shower is very nice. The inclusion of towels and linens is very helpful and convenient; not having to pack these space consuming items is great. The well stocked kitchen includes everything you need to prepare and serve a delicious meal; but if you don’t feel like cooking there is a restaurant next door. Our family really enjoyed the convenience of having the community pool and steps to the beach just outside the patio door. We are looking forward to future stays in this wonderful vacation home.

This condo is very well stocked and equiped, the upstairs nicely remodeled. Thr owner was nice & easy to talk to. I explained to her that we are neat & clean freaks. She promised her condo was very clean, that she cleans it herself each week. It wasn't, when I called to tell her we were not satisfied, the owners comment was "What is your problem?" The next night there were over 100 bugs in master bedroom and living room. When I called her the next morning she said "we have no bugs" I paid a lot of money for a service that was not provided. After a 14 hour drive then up all night cleaning, next night up all night because of bugs, she treated us as though we were the problem not what the real problem was. The money she refunded us for a day and a half was not even close to fair. We agreed to just be done with her and move on and try to enjoy what was left of our vacation. Her comments and actions were NOT appropriate for someone in business that is suppose to be providing a service to paying customers. I do have pictures showing proof.

Owner response: We strive to provide a clean, comfortable, fully furnished villa for renters to enjoy. The posting by a renter for the week of July 6-13, 2013 is most upsetting. There are many misstatements made by Debra that I would like to address. Debra called on July 6 after arriving at Fripp to say she discovered she could stay free with relatives who had rented a house and a villa at Fripp for the week. She wanted to cancel her rental contract and get a full refund. I explained that I had turned down 3 other families in order to rent to her. She had signed a legal contract for that week and it was too late to cancel it. I said, "no", but was not rude. The next day she called to say the kitchen was dirty and she wanted to cancel and get a refund. She said there were dried eggs on the counter and the stove was not clean. She did not know that we clean the villa ourselves and had only been gone a short time when she arrived. I clean the counters with Awesome and wipe everything with bleach wipes. I remove the stove eyes and wash the pans and wipe the stove under the eyes. I was sure that the kitchen was clean, but I would be pleased to come clean it again. The next day she called to say that she wanted to cancel and get a refund. She claimed that there were hundreds of bugs in the villa. She said her husband's job is cleaning apartments between renters and she knew that bug infestation is a legal reason to cancel a contract. We had the exterminator who treats the entire complex meet us there. There were bugs in a circle in the Master Bedroom partially on the bottom of the bed and on the floor. To our surprise, there was also a zip lock bag in the room with the same bugs in it! He identified the bugs as OUTDOOR bugs called twig girdlers. It is very unusual for them to be found inside. They chew twigs off of trees and usually remain on the twig on the ground under the tree. The entire top of the stove had been removed and replaced improperly. She said that is where they found the stove dirty. I didn't even know that a stove top could be removed. I pro-rated the rent based on a rental for the three days that they were there, not for "a day and a half" as she stated. She agreed to the refund. I feel that she wanted out of the contract in order to have a free week's vacation on Fripp Island and nothing else would have satisfied her. I am sorry that she was dissatisfied. This is the only complaint that we have ever had.
Best Equipped Condo on Fripp
Best Equipped Condo on Fripp
We have been vacationing on Fripp Island for years and have stayed in several of the villas. This unit is by far the best equipped. Anything you could ever need to cook with was available in the kitchen (including a crock pot & electric skillet). Paper products, trash bags even soap and shampoo were provided. The upstairs has been recently renovated and includes a great new shower. The bed arrangement in the second bedroom was perfect for our three teenage children (Q, T, T). The owner was a pleasure to talk with and even checked to make sure we got into the unit and everything was OK. Will definitely try to stay in this villa again.
