North Hampton Villas condo description

***Please read our 'Traveler Reviews', below.*** We do our very best to ensure that your precious vacation time is totally enjoyable....

Our villa was totally renovated in 2006, and refurbished meticulously in Jan. 2011; Direct Oceanfront facing east (from LR/DR/Kitchen/MBR) & Ocean Point Golf Course directly behind (facing west). Our villa is situated at the quieter, sunniest end of the island, with its own pool and elevator. This area of Fripp is perfect for lovers of oceanfront golf, as well as those who are enthralled with the ever-changing ocean. Our home is direct-east-facing oceanfront and a beautiful 2-min. walk from our villa to our Ocean Point beach access, which many Fripp Islanders think is the MOST beautiful of Fripp's many beach accesses. Wi-Fi, 37' flatscreen LCD TV, down-filled chaise sofa and Lazy Boy recliner will fulfill your comforts.

If you and your family would like to enjoy a worry-free vacation on a low-key-island wildlife preserve, where the dolphins play directly in front of your third floor balcony and master bedroom window, and the deer roam freely and will eat from your hand, then Fripp is your island.

Fripp is a private, gated island, 1½ hours from Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. Also, 15 minutes from Fripp, is the historical town of Beaufort, a picturesque town which is rated as one of the top 10 places to retire by Kiplinger's magazine. Designated as 'Happiest Beach Town' in 2013, by Coastal Living magazine. Be sure to visit Beaufort's many riverfront (intracoastal waterway) restaurants, antique stores, and excellent historical tours.

The island offers a pristine 3½ mile beach, which is wide, very gradually sloping, with gentle Atlantic waters. Our North Hampton condo complex has its own pool, and an elevator to ALL floors (wheeled cart in our closet makes it super easy to transport belongings to or from car/villa - most all homes and other condo buildings have at least 1 flight of stairs, even if the building has an elevator.) We are handicapped accessible, (with limitations). Also, ease of entry/exit via the elevator is a blessing for those of us over age 50)! Guests may also enjoy additional oceanfront pools, to include another pool close to our building - Ocean Point pool - right next to our beach access, or the mid-island Beach Club, and the south-end Cabana Club, with a heated pool / hot tub/ kiddie pool / and lagoon pool with waterfalls and mist cave.

Other highlights include 2 championship golf courses (Ocean Point, just steps from your door); miles of nature-filled bike trails; tennis; rentals of boats, kayaks, golf carts, mopeds, waverunners, and backwater skiffs; fishing and crabbing; dolphin cruises; ocean seining; Family Night with the Naturalist...OR, just relax in your beach lounger with a great book, and an endless ocean view! Fripp has everything you need for a safe, fun-filled, family holiday AWAY from congestion, commercialism, and the modern frenzied lifestyle.

Our weekly rates include 2 weeklong amenity cards (see explanation under rates). If weeklong cards are not included by the homeowner, it would be an addt'l $35-$50 per person/per week. Additional 3-day, week-long, or monthly amenity cards may be purchased by our guests. Monthly rates include 2 month-long amenity cards, which would be an additional $126-$140 per person, if not provided in rate. Paypal is available to you, w/ a nominal $10 convenience fee per transaction (PayPal charges us more than $20), should you prefer to use credit card.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Ocean lovers who very much enjoy the peace and quiet of unique Fripp Island, and its total absence of commercialism and congestion. Having lived worldwide (like our famous resident-author, Pat Conroy - PRINCE OF TIDES, BEACH MUSIC, THE GREAT SANTINI, SOUTH OF BROAD) - I have never experienced any oceanfront location such as Pristine, Unique Fripp Island.

                  Why the Owner Chose North Hampton Villas:
                  The road to Fripp Island, from beautiful and quaint Beaufort, is a gem in itself. It is the opposite of the road leading to Hilton Head or Myrtle Beach. The stress leaves you, as you approach the pristine paradise of Fripp Island. The 17 miles from Beaufort to Fripp becomes more and more untouched by civilization - incredibly pristine intracoastal waterways, marshes, ocean...all the way to the last bridge to gated Fripp Island. Fripp is the EASTERN-MOST OF ALL THE SC SEA ISLANDS, and believe me, you will get that feeling that you have definitely reached 'Heavenly Lands End'. Please Google MAP OF FRIPP ISLAND RESORT. We are located on the tip, far right, above the 8 white cottages. You will see the pool between our building and the ocean seawall. Interesting Note: The Atlantic Ocean's Continental Slope drops off the far side of the 'sand bar', which you see everyday at the villa, from all the east-facing windows, slider, balcony and MBR. This is the Real Atlantic Ocean. Please Google 'Fripp Island Resort Map', scroll right to the tip where our villa is, scroll further right - until you see the 'sand bar', and you will see the precipitous drop of the Continental Slope, to the right of the 'sandbars'.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  When you open the door to our villa, all you see is Blue Atlantic Ocean...dolphins, tides ebbing and flowing, watercraft, people fishing off the seawall. This is the wild and ever-changing ocean, not a beach. The ocean is so close, you feel as if you are on a cruise ship. It is amazing to fall asleep to, and wake up to, the soothing sound of the waves crashing against the seawall, especially during inclement weather.
