End unit with lots of windows. Furnished with the comfort of the guests in mind. New features include new expanded patio with rain protection cover, newly painted rooms, beautiful new plank tile in living room, dining room and kitchen. We added new lighting in dining room and recovered the chairs.

Our completely, on the first floor, unit features a large living room with newer furniture, full dining room, breakfast room, fully-equipped kitchen remodeled with new cabinets, dishwasher, refrigerator and stove, a laundry area, three bedrooms each with an adjoining full bath, and an expanded patio with 2 tables and 8 chairs. The main patio is covered by deck above, perfect for those who want to stay out of the sun. Now updated with a rain protection system so you can sit out even on rainy days. Unit is clean and beautifully decorated for comfort. NO PETS AND NO SMOKING INSIDE.

Sleeping arrangements are: Bed 1: one king-size bed, Bed 2: one queen-size, Bed 3: one full and one twin. This unit sleeps 7 comfortably. Maximum occupancy is six adults and 2 small children. Weekly rentals April through December 31. Monthly rentals December, January,February, and March.

Fripp Island is a wildlife preserve that is 19 miles from Beaufort, South Carolina and is situated on a 3000 acre island. We have three and a half miles of Atlantic Ocean Beach, a beach you can walk, bicycle, and play... It's Never Crowded!

Fripp Island Resort has an Amenity Guest Passes policy. As a guest staying in our condo you will have to, prior to your arrival, purchase Amenity Passes through us, in order to use the restaurants, rent equipment, play golf or tennis or use the pools. Rates for amenity passes for anyone over the age of 12 for the spring/fall are $35.00 each person and the summer rate is $50.00 per person. This rate is a weekly rate. Children 12 and under do not need passes. To enter pool facilities, your card will have to be swiped through a machine which in turn opens the gate.

Relax, enjoy the beach, a great beach to ride bikes on, sit and watch the ocean, play volleyball and games, and enjoy nature and beauty of this great beach. A beach you can walk or jog on while you enjoy the many birds and dolphins and sea creatures. Bring you bike for the trails, With a Fripp Island Amenity Pass you can rent watercraft from our marina, and swim and play in the pools.

This is a wildlife preserve so the wildlife is spectacular as well as the views. With your pass you can play golf at both of the designer courses, Ocean Point designed by George W. Cobb and Ocean Creek designed by Davis Love III. One of our favorites is The Legends at Parris Island which is a beautiful course open to the public. Most public courses offer 18 holes of golf for under $45.

Yes, you can vacation without an Amenity Pass but if you want to use the pools or use any amenity then you will need the passes. We are located on the beach. Beachfront/ocean views from four rooms in the condo and a covered patio to keep you shaded. We can recommend our favorite restaurants in town.

We have a newly remodeled kitchen well equipped with absolutely all you need to create wonderful meals. We hope you will consider staying at our condo. We have the most desirable location on the beach. Most of our summer guests come back year after year. Book early as we have a limited amount of summer weeks available. Those who rent from us have the first option to return the same week every year. It's best to check the calendar one year in advance for the summer bookings or call us and we will put you on the list if anything comes open.
