Bring your binoculars or scope to watch the birds and other wildlife in the marsh.

Moderate temperatures in spring and fall are especially popular with golfers. Although Tarpon Blvd is the main Island road, which is convenient for getting around, our villa is situated well back from the road so that the sounds you hear are either tennis balls or the birds.

About the owner: We have been coming to Fripp since late 1970's and stayed in various locations. Leaving Ky after 35 years, we moved closer to Fripp and are now in upstate SC. We bought unit while building our present house VRBO 4153. Our family stays occasionally in the Villa, which is furnished to our standards.
We love the opportunity to be solitary or in a group, play sports or walk the beach, children benefit from bike trails, a security presence on the roads, and only one entrance/exit road at Fripp.
Why the Owner Chose Tennis Villas: We bought this Villa while building a new home on Island.. This is a wonderful central location with pool and beach 3 minute walk away. Tennis courts are just outside the door. The tidal creek is active and alive with wildlife. Set back off the main road of Tarpon means it is quiet yet a very convenient Island location. With an end unit (townhouse), gazing across the creek's marshes is not the same as being in the middle of condominium hustle and bustle. We love the variety of birds feeding in
the creek and marsh or building their nests. We have watched osprey over the years, returning to their familiar habitats.
The central location across from Beach Club facilties or beach, adjacent to the tennis courts, and with easy access to paved bicycle trails allows families to do everything and nothing outside the door.
Fripp has been nicknamed 'the best kept secret of the South' for good reason. Many owners come as often as they can, returning guests often have come for the past 20-30 years while first-time guests are welcome. We also think our guests care about our Island and feel at home in our property. Many of us appreciate and respect the presence of security and their concern for owners and visitors.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Great size of unit and its layout works well. The creek is right off our deck. Quet!. Sunny1. Easy to have privacy or be social by its location. It has a unique setting on Island without through traffic. Walk to various venues in 'Beach Club area' without worrying about parking a car or golf cart to go to pools, beach, food. We have a 4-passenger golf cart, covered with 'windows' for the cooler weather, for our guests now. The Island POA will no longer allow non-property owners to bring their own golf carts.. Activities are relatively near by, the Beach Club across the street, or equi-distance to either end of the Island for golf, marina, or additional pools.
