North Hampton Villas condo description

In the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry on the beautiful pristine Fripp Island nestled on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean you will find DOLPHIN WATCH VILLA: our spacious corner OCEANFRONT VILLA. We are in the North Hampton complex with panoramic views of the ocean, Fripp inlet and easy access to the Ocean Point Golf Course. The ocean is your backyard, just fifty feet away.

Our scenic location will inspire you to rise early to see the sunrise over the Atlantic, while sipping your morning beverage on the veranda. Watching how the sun shimmers on the ocean can be mesmerizing. During the day you can lose track of time bird-watching or waiting for the next DOLPHIN sighting. Enjoy the sound of the waves splashing against the rocky shore. You will want to stay up late to search for the 'big-dipper' amongst the many stars shining down on you. You may decide to pull yourself away and take a stroll along the beach or one of the paths and be delighted when a deer comes your way. However you decide to spend your time here you will enjoy our location and the ambience of our villa. If romance is on your schedule the sunsets on Fripp can not be beat.

DOLPHIN WATCH VILLA is spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished with great attention to detail. Soft colors on the walls and comfortable furnishing provide a ‘homey feeling.” Over looking the ocean is the spacious living room that includes a sofa (w/queen bed), a love seat, soft lighting, candles and a 32” FLAT SCREEEN TELEVISION, VHS/DVD PLAYER, enjoy our music, books and games; the dining area includes a glass topped dining table with seating for four and a bar height counter with two stools; the fully equipped kitchen, includes an ocean view and for the chef in the family we have: GEORGE FORMAN ROASTER OVEN; WAFFLE MAKER; PANCAKE GRILL PAN; ELECTRIC MIXER; BLENDER; SALAD SPINNER, TOASTER, ELECTRIC CAN OPENER.

Comment from previous guests:

Rawl Oct. ’09 South Carolina

We have truly enjoyed our stay here in your villa. This is our daughter’s first trip to the beach and she has loved it. The view is beautiful and we’ve had excellent weather (Summer in October). We’ve loved seeing the deer on the island and watching the birds & dolphins on the balcony. Thanks so much for your hospitality and lovely home.

Bayne Oct. ’09 Georgia

This was our 5th visit to Fripp Is. But our first time staying at this end of the island. And we are hooked!

Great location, awesome views & lovely villa. What a combination. The Dolphins didn’t disappoint us & plenty of herions & egrets pelicans.
We will be back. Thanks for the use of your wonderful home.

PS: Thank you for the welcome gift. It was a nice touch & much appreciated.

Jeff & Nancy – Michigan

“The villa was spotless. Hard to believe this special spot could be improved upon, but you have managed to do just that with all your special touches.”

Barri, - Georgia

'This is our first visit to Fripp Island. We are sure glad we found you and your wonderful condo. I don’t know what we enjoyed the most the dolphins, the pelicans or the deer. Everything is wonderful. You have thought of everything one could possibly need.'

Lynda & Brad - Iowa

'When we rented a villa called “Dolphin Watch Villa” we were skeptical…we saw many dolphins every day. The description of the villa was without exaggeration. Everything promised was delivered and then some.'
