Private Homes house description

Oceanfront and plenty of room for everyone are just two of the many reasons that Southern Comfort is the perfect vacation rental for your stay on Fripp Island. This home has 7 bedroom/4.5 baths.
The main floor of the house consists of the living room, kitchen, breakfast nook, screened porch, dining room, laundry room and master bedroom. The spacious living room can be a great gathering place for all of your family/friends, easily accesses the kitchen. If you are visiting when the weather cools, enjoy the wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has two full size refrigerators, bar seating for 4, as well as a breakfast nook that can seat 4 more. The dining area is perfect for those big gatherings, and can seat 12. There is no lack of space! Lastly, on the main floor, don't miss the screened porch, which can be a welcome haven from the bugs on those summer evenings. The porch consists of couch seating as well as a table and chairs for board games or cards.
The main floor master bedroom has a king size bed, with pillow top mattress. The large walk-in closet can hold all those vacation clothes, and the multiple spray shower and Jacuzzi tub can help you relax even more each day. The master bedroom also includes a TV, and direct deck access through sliding doors.
On the top level, you will find 5 more bedrooms and 2 additional bathrooms. One bedroom is oceanfront and holds a king size bed with pillow top mattress, dresser, closet and a private balcony. The bathroom connects with the street side bedroom which consists of a queen size bed, with pillow top mattress, as well as a twin bed, closet, and dresser. Down the hallway, you will find a loft bedroom consisting of a pillow top queen bed, closet, and dresser. A full hall bathroom connects the loft area to an oceanfront bedroom with a pillow top king size bed, dresser, as well as private deck access. Lastly, on this top level, there is a fifth bedroom that serves as a bunk space for the kids! There are two sets of bunk beds as well as a toddler bed and closet with room for all their toys. Click on our interactive floor plan button to see the exact layout.
Need a game room and play space for the kids and adults? Visit the bottom floor to use the spacious bonus room as well as additional space for sleeping. There are two sets of bunk beds, a refrigerator, laundry area, sitting area, and table for games or puzzles. There is also a ping pong table and 42 inch flat screen HDTV for those rainy days. Be sure to contact us about free DVD rentals through our office.
Outdoor living is at its best as well at Southern Comfort, with a full deck on the back of the house that connects to the master bedroom and a screened porch. Enjoy your morning coffee or a nightcap while you lounge on the chairs outdoors. There are outdoor showers as well as a grill for some delicious meals. Have a round or two of volleyball at the outdoor net/court. Dont forget Fripp Islands amazing residents, the Loggerhead Sea Turtles. To help these creatures it?s LIGHTS OUT from May to October on all exterior and porch lights. The lights can distract the mother turtles from laying eggs and from the hatch-lings reaching their ocean destination. The first hatch-lings normally occur in early July. If you have never seen this amazing march of 50-120 baby turtles marching to the sea, be sure to put it on your bucket list! Book Southern Comfort today for the best of what Fripp has to offer!
*Southern Comfort is considered oceanfront. However the ocean and the beach is about 300 yards away through sand dunes as of January 29, 2015*
**This property is about 300 yards away from the usable beach and water, depending on the location of the tide. There are a few different beach accesses on Marlin Drive and the further you go towards the end of the road, the shorter the walk to the beach is. Access to the beach is available to the right or left about 10 houses down. Although if you go to the last access at high tide you will not be able to access the beach**

****In March 2015, a boardwalk will be built next to the property. It should be ready by this summer. We will keep updating on the boardwalk as it gets built***
On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 foot tides. At low tide from this section of beach, you may find that you walk out about 300 yards to get to the ocean. The beach also changes from month to month and year to year.
Fripp Island is a beautiful barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean outside of Beaufort, SC. The island is about 5 miles long with 3 1/2 miles of white sandy beach. Fripp Island is also a private gated community where we have 24 hour security at the gate. This tropical destination offers lots of amenities such as golf, tennis, swimming, fishing and crabbing. Fripp Island has several pools, restaurants, a food court, bar, a fitness center, a tennis court, 2 golf courses (Ocean Point Golf Course and Ocean Creek Golf Course), island excursions rentals, shops, a playground, bike trails, the marina, and Camp Fripp (daily activities). All of these items are available with the purchase of Guest Cards, which give you access to the Fripp Resort amenities.

From the south: Take I-95 North, take S.C. exit 8 (Hwy 278/Beaufort/Hilton Head). Turn onto Hwy 278, toward Hilton Head/Beaufort. Travel approximately 4 miles and turn left at the sign for Beaufort. (If you pass the Wal-Mart, you missed the turn). Stay on this road until it dead-ends at Hwy 170. Turn left onto Hwy 170 and continue for about 11miles, cross the Broad River Bridge, and turn right onto Hwy 802 (the next right turn after the bridge at the BP Gas Station). Take this road for a couple of miles until it comes to an end and turn right to stay on the same hwy. Stay on Hwy 802 (you’ll cross over the bridge by Parris Island) until you come to a fairly major intersection with a CVS, a gas station, a Hardee’s, and an auto parts store. Turn right at this intersection. You will still be on Hwy 802. (You’ll know it’s the right turn because you’ll see signs for Fripp Island). At all times, follow the signs toward Fripp. You’ll cross another bridge over to Lady’s Island. After crossing the bridge, travel another mile or 2 and make a right hand turn onto Hwy 21. A video rental store and a Publix will be at this intersection. Go approx 15 miles on Hwy 21. Hwy 21 dead ends onto Fripp Island. After checking into the Guard Gate on Fripp, continue onto the Island. Turn left at the sign for Ocean Point. Turn right onto Marlin. Follow that road until you reach our house at 763 Marlin.

From the north: Go I-95 South, take exit 33 (US-17 N) toward Charleston/Beaufort. Go approximately 8.5 miles and turn right onto US-21 S/Trask Pkwy. Follow US-21 S/Trask Pkwy for about 14 miles, then stay straight to go onto US-21 BR/Boundary St. Continue to follow US-21 BR (through downtown Beaufort), which becomes US-21. Continue another 17 miles until the road ends at Fripp Island.


Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I are retired, and spend part of the year at Fripp and part in Wisconsin. This is a great way to enjoy our children and grandchildren, besides avoiding the coldest part of the year up north.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I fell in love with this house the minute I saw it for sale online in 2004. We knew we wanted to be in the low country, preferably on Fripp Island to enjoy the tropical paradise, the ocean and beach, and take advantage of the amenities the resort island has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have been able to share the Beaufort area with lots of our friends from Wisconsin, many of whom have never been here. The house is so roomy and comfortable for a number of people, they all want to come back. In fact, many of them do come back with their families. You know it has to be good if they are willing to come back that distance from Wisconsin!
