Paradise found on the Fripp Canal at just steps to the popular BEACH access #17 near center island. This one has it all!!! Boaters and fishermen - enjoy your private dock in your own backyard... where you can catch dinner of flounder, sea trout, or red drum or get some tasty crabs! You will enjoy sitting on your swing on the upper screen porch or on the dock at sunset. Beach walkers and sun-worshippers are only steps away from the beach access leading to miles of sun-drenched, uncrowded beach.

Also, this home is only 4 homes away from the Beach Club and center island activities.

The home has 2 screen porches overlooking the canal one with swing & picnic table. Newer Maytag appliances, upgraded lighting, tray ceiling Great Room, a fully-equipped kitchen with an eat-in bar and 4 bar stools, a fantastic dock on a tidal canal, and ample parking.

Full-size Golf cart (2nd optional cart) and 10.5 bicycles are included with the Rental.

Enjoy 3.5 miles of pristine beach, wildlife sanctuaries, bike paths, nature walks, and two nature centers. Visit Davis Love Park with swings and the Captain John Fripp boat, plus basketball and volleyball courts with a picnic cabana. On Fripp, you are sure to see deer, raccoons, alligators, osprey, herons, dolphins, etc. Take a walk on the beach & find shells & sand dollars.

Amenity Cards are available for any persons over 12 years of age at the cost of $50 each per week from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and $35 each per week all other times. These cards allow our guests to have full use of the island pools, golf courses, tennis, restaurants, scooter & boat rentals, the gym work out facilities.

Besides the drive-under garage, there is a 3-car turnaround parking area, plus a long driveway. The private dock is a great place to fish, crab, and unwind with a glass of wine but we are strict on one rule: no children under 12 allowed on the dock without grown-up supervision.

Activities onsite or nearby include swimming, boating, sailing, surfing, wind-surfing, shelling, hiking, beach volley ball, biking, golf and tennis (both with instruction classes), basketball, fishing, wildlife viewing, and nature centers, restaurants, museums, sight-seeing on the good ship 'Fripper.' For youths of 3-8 years old, there is a nature-based camp (Camp Fripp) and teen events for ages 12-17. There are golf lessons called Wee Links for the junior golfer! Though tennis courts abound, Fripp is best know for year round GOLF. The recently renovated Ocean Point Golf Course has breathtaking views - with holes laid out along the Ocean and the Inlet. Ocean Creek Golf Course (the Davis Love III course) was recently rated a 4.5 (great) by Golf Magazine. The Fripp Island Resort rentals include additional golf carts, bikes, mopeds, personal watercraft, sea kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, and fishing charters.

Just bring your toys, camera, clothes, and food. We supply bedding and linens, towels, a fully-equipped kitchen and a gas grill. Even a toddler bed if needed. WE WANT YOU TO HAVE A GREAT TIME!

Post-Script - choosing a vacation home sight unseen is always a challenge. But Fripp is a special Family Place and our goal is to help you decide if our home is right for you.

We have a home filled with love & feelings that it belongs to someone special. We have stayed at many places, but this is the best - a truly great vacation. Perhaps our place on the canal across from the ocean will be the right one for you!

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Mid-Island:
                      We have found paradise here on the Fripp canal. Just across the street to the popular beach access #17 near center island. We've got it all!!!! Boaters & fisherman can enjoy their own private dock right in their own back yard. Catch flounder, sea trout or red drum while capturing some tasty crabs. Sit on the big swing on the upper screen porch or on the the dock at sunset. Beachers and sunbathers are only steps away from miles of uncrowded, sundrenched sand. Across the street is the well known Beach Club [Restaurant, Food Court, Olympic pool, Entertainment, Fitness Center].
