Captain John Fripp Villas villa description

Our 1500 square foot villa offers a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean from the second floor deck. The uncrowded beach is just a short walk across our quiet courtyard.

The living room includes newer sofa and love seat, breakfast table and entertainment center with newer 42' flat-screen TV, VCR/DVD player combo, and stereo/cassette/CD player. The laundry area is conveniently located within the villa. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, range/oven, and microwave. The adjoining dining room provides another spectacular view of the Atlantic.

Sleeping arrangements are: one king-size bed in the upper floor master bedroom, two twin beds in the main floor bedrooms, and 2 twin beds in the den off of the living room. Each of the three bedrooms has its own full bath.

Our central location puts you within walking distance of pools, fitness center, specialty shops, fine dining at The Beach Club Restaurant, Food Court, and the Racquet Club's ten tennis courts. Ocean Point Golf Links to the north and Ocean Creek Golf Club to the south are each less than 5 minutes away.

The full-service marina complex provides launching, docking, fuel, charter services, and the Marina Store. Rental golf carts, mopeds, bicycles, fishing boats, wave runners, kayaks, paddleboards are also available. The Bonito Boathouse Restaurant offers family fare with fantastic sunset views from the roof top dining room. No visit is complete without an excursion boat ride on The Fripper pontoon boat piloted by Captain Ralph.

The Cabana Club at Veranda Beach has three pools, Willie's Wet Bar, and Sandals Bar & Grill. Camp Fripp offers daily summertime children's activities for ages 3 through 12. Additional nature and social programs are scheduled for the entire family. Davis Love Park has a playground, basketball court, volleyball court, and the shrimp boat.

An unlimited number of Fripp Island Resort Guest Cards may be purchased that allow access to all island amenities. Please ask us for details.

A tour along the off-road bicycle trail reveals an abundance of deer, low-country birds, and other wildlife. You may even see one of our lazy gators. What you won't see are fast-food or fast cars; neon lights or traffic lights.

For your safety and protection, there is a 24 hour security gate plus police, fire, and paramedic protection.

Fripp Island is the complete vacation for complete relaxation. You'll come for a week and come back for a lifetime!

Check our calendar below. If we don't have the dates you need, please contact us anyway. We'll be glad to help you find similar villas; we especially recommend our friends and neighbors at #21944 and #4731.

Viv from Corbin, Kentucky was here in March 2010 and reports:
'My family and I just returned from a week's stay at this fabulous villa. The oceanfront is practically at the back door. While the photo on this web site shows the closeness of the beach, it's actually nearer than it appears! The beach is less than a 100 steps away! The views of the ocean are spectacular from almost every room. And sunrise and sunset on the beach can't be beat at any price! The villa is just as advertised. The upstairs master is huge with an extremely comfortable king bed, and the two en suite bathrooms downstairs made it perfect for my family's privacy. The smaller fourth bedroom (downstairs) is perfect for children or teens. The kitchen is nicely equipped for cooking one's own meals and there is ample seating for dining indoors or out! Publix grocery shopping is an easy drive from the condo. There is a Walmart and Lowe's about 45 minutes away for other shopping needs. The John Fripp Villas have a very private, residential feel, with well-maintained buildings, parking areas and landscaping. We loved the quiet, non-commerical nature of Fripp Island and its properties. No traffic, no loud noise, no huge crowds. We highly recommend touring Fripp Island on foot or by bicycle! Riding a bike along well-maintained paths was one of our favorite ways to spend time. The fishing and crabbing were great fun, even so early in the season. While we didn't catch enough crab this time to make a meal for all, the dining in nearby Beaufort was just as enjoyable. We recommend making a trip to PLUMS in Beaufort for a fabulous dinner experience. Make a point to visit KATHLEEN'S (right next to PLUMS) for a quiet, delicious lunch. The owners of this villa are eager to please and answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. They really wanted us to feel welcomed and we surely did. Our entire experience with this villa was spot on. We all voted to return to this villa again next year! Many thanks to Fripp Four-Ever for the opportunity to stay at this wonderful condo!'

                                We just returned from Captain John Fripp Villas and had a great experience. Ages 2-66 had a blast, whether it was sunning on the deck or building sand castles at the beach. It is a quiet, relaxing place in a beautiful part of the country. The accommodations were great and gave us no worries on our trip.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway.

                                Fripp Island is amazing!! I love to try to take my family to places they haven't been before on a tight budget. I think we have found a settling place for a while. Fripp Island is a slice of paradise. It is quiet, uncrowded and just some of the most amazing scenery we have experienced, mountain or beach. Captain John Fripp Villas was the perfect spot. The owner of our villa was most gracious and very helpful on our trip. This place was roomy with four bedrooms and three baths and everything you needed to cook your daily catch. That's right...the fishing was great, I caught my first Redfish from the surf just steps from our doorway!! The pictures do not show how close you actually are to the beach. It is just steps away with lots of room for all of our activities. On our last night we had a deer eating the grass in the courtyard just off of our porch and just 20 feet from the beach. Thanks again for our new resting place!!

                                Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, tourists without a car, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway, sightseeing.

                              Year Purchased: 1990

                              About the owner: We're a group of three families from southwestern Ohio. Some of us are retired; others only dream of being. We've been making the twelve hour trip to Fripp for 30 years. We Eat This Stuff Up!

                              Why the Owner Chose Captain John Fripp Villas:
                              It's a quiet seaside gated community free of theme parks and outlet malls.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              The Captain John Fripp Villas are the ONLY villas on Fripp Island connected directly to their own full-time beach (no loss of beach at high tide). The island abounds with wildlife; deer, alligators, and a wide variety of birds including heron and osprey.
