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 5-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. 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. 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.

We had a wonderful, wonderful time... My hubby wasn't able to make it but my Aunt was happy..ha! I have a friend that lives at LandsEnd (not far away) and she loved your place. I gave her your info for rental.. What a beautiful, beautiful view. My friend is a photographer and we had a photo shoot on the golf green and around the area. We rented a golf cart and ventured on the island all weekend.. My little darling 4-yr-old daughter said it was amazing. I have stayed in a lot of condos but yours definitely has a warm, comfortable feeling. Although chilly, we enjoyed the balcony at night. Thank you for the late checkout and early arrival. It was very nice to ride the golf cart a little longer for my little darling. She loved it. Thanks again! It was an awesome trip for us.

We want to thank you for a great weekend. Everything with your home was first class. Thanks so much for early arrival which made a long weekend. This was our first time on this end of the island and we loved the peace & quiet. We tried to leave your place as clean when we left, as it was when we got there. Thanks again for everything. Tommy

The Wonders of Fripp
I wanted to thank you again for our stay, as we had a great trip and got back this afternoon. we had sun each of the 4 days and it never really got too hot. saw a lot of fish, even one small shark, and some sting rays. i agree that your location is a great place to be, as we checked out all the beaches and found pros and cons to each. i'll write a much longer review on VRBO and we'd stay with you again if the opportunity arises. Thanks again and have a great rest of the summer! Regards, - John & Meredith

Great vacation for a very kind family of fourGuest comment entered by owner
Great vacation for a very kind family of four
Just want to tell you that Mark, I and the girls are loving it here:). So thankful of all that you had here for us to use like the pool noodle for Adyson:), the beach chairs, beach towels and the beach dolly which saved our life lol. Your home is beautifully updated and very kid friendly! I would like to also add that you have been such a true blessing to talk to and deal with, you have always been here when I needed to ask you anything so thank you for that and all the helpful information you sent us. We enjoyed the ice cream shop here on the island and also bought a pizza there tonight which was very good! Another plus to many of your home is your touch keypad that I have been bragging to everyone about bc it's so great not to have to keep up with another key:). All of these reasons and many more is the reason we plan to visit Fripp Island and your home again for future family vacations. Enjoy your new grandchild and bless you and your husband! Mark, Angel, Adyson, and Sophie

Fripp Island and Nature...appreciated by all agesGuest comment entered by owner
Fripp Island and Nature...appreciated by all ages
We had such a wonderful time on Fripp! The island is just beautiful, and your condo is so warm and welcoming. The kids referred to it as our “home away from home” all week, and Sophie said, “I’m really going to miss this home away from home when we go to our real home.” As we were leaving the island Saturday morning, I asked the kids what the favorite part of their trip was, and we decided there were too many to pick just one! A few of the highlights: seeing so much wildlife (deer, turtles, alligators, dolphins, etc.); getting to pet Archie the Alligator at the Nature Center; catching a shark (Owen and his dad caught a few actually); and looking at starfish, hermit crabs and shells on the beach! We had an amazing trip, and I am confident that my kids will always remember the time they went to Fripp Island!

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.
