About the owner: I am a retired state employee who has lived in Columbia, SC since 1970. My wife has taught elementary school for 41 years. I currently sell real estate with Exit, Real Estate Solutions in Columbia, SC. We have been coming to Fripp Island since 1974 and purchased a condo in 1991. The condo was sold in 1999 so we could purchase this marsh front home. Our membership to Fripp Island resort allows our guest to purchase amenity cards so they can have access to the island pools, golf courses, tennis courts, marina, and other amenities offered throughout the island.
