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.

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.

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.

“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.”

"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."

Every stay at Dolphin Watch has been excellent. We know when we leave home that we will find a clean, comfortable unit with relaxing decor. Because it is a corner unit, the view is amazing. We see dolphins nearly every day, as well as deer and an occasional alligator. We prefer the beach in the winter. If the weather is pleasant, we enjoy being out on the porch or walking on the beach. If it is not, the unit is so light and well-equipped, that being indoors becomes a treat! Sunrises over the water are spectacular, as are sunsets over the golf course (from the back of the unit). The owner is responsive and pleasant to work with. We enjoy Dolphin Watch so much that it makes the review sound like an exaggeration, but it is not! We feel relaxed and renewed after each trip to Dolphin Watch.

We have stayed at many different homes and condos on Fripp over the years. This condo was by far the cleanest and nicest place we have ever stayed. We had all the supplies such as paper towels, toilet paper, and trash bags for the whole week. The carpet and floors were very clean and the furniture was newer and not worn out. The view from the balcony is magnificent. A restaurant is just right across the street, the pool is at the bottom of the stairs, and the trash dumpster is right at the property so you don't have to accumulate trash bags all week. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone, and we plan to stay there again whenever possible.

The Perfect Vacation Spot
The Perfect Vacation Spot
WOW! Fripp Island is a sacred vacation spot! The condo we stayed in was tastefully decorated and was spotlessly clean. This was my second time on the Island and staying at the same condo which is like a dream. It will definitely be our spot every year. The view from the living room is breaktaking, even on a rainy day; sunrise/sunset is absolutely beautiful.

This was our second stay at Dolphin Watch. The villa is spotless and beautifully decorated. It's in a perfect location just steps from the water. From the veranda we watched a spectacular sunrise every day and watched the dolphins play. BA was very pleasant to work with. We highly recommend this villa. We'll definitely be back.

We had a wonderful stay, the villa was gorgeous. The island, grounds and beaches were beautiful. We walked on the beach a lot, the whole length of the island. A wonderful view off the balcony. The villa was beautifully furnished, very comfortable. We are looking forward to going back there someday.

Fripp Island has always been a favorite beach getaway for us. This villa was perfect...the kitchen was well equipped for any kind of cooking...the dolphins were great...the weather cooperated except for one stormy day...golf was great...the bed was comfy. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...only wished the stay could have been longer.

This was one of our best getaways because of your villa...Great location & views..Clean and nicely decorated..Fripp is one of the few spots on the S. C. coast that you feel like you're on a tropical resort. Beaufort is close and you can't beat the "shrimp shack" for lunch..We'll be back....

Great place to Relax

Our stay was wonderful. The description of the unit and amenities was accurate and it was great to find out we had chose well. The owner is so courteous and nice to speak with and all communication was a pleasure. It really is a good place to watch dolphins and we saw them several times. The week was so relaxing and seemed to flow so easily but was over too quickly. Two weeks would have been great. Was fun to watch the tournament Friday. The 10th hole tee box and the 18th hole green were great to watch the action. Beautiful golf course.

We stayed in Dolphin Watch for two weeks and enjoyed our first trip to Fripp Island. The description of the property was accurate and we saw dolphins most days, whether standing on the balcony or at the kitchen sink. The photos were accurate as well. The unit was clean when we arrived and well equipped, including a nice gift in the fridge and we had no issues during our stay. The owner sent us a package of instructions, explaining the steps to take on arrival and during our stay. A highlight of the stay was taking a sunset cruise through the salt marsh on a party boat from the marina where the captain provided lots of interesting information about the island, the history of the area, the tides and the dolphins. We wanted a ocean view and Dolphin Watch provided us with morning sunsets every day except the day we were leaving. We would certainly recommend the unit to friends or relatives. Our one issue was having to go to the business office to access the free wi-fi network.
