  • Magical Location/Comfortable Home/Responsive Owner

    "My wife and I and our Brittany dog have begun to make a habit of spending January/February and part of March in this special spot on Fripp Island's marshes. This year was our second stay here, and we've already committed to returning in 2016. Before discovering this home we were already veteran Fripp Island visitors, but we always chose beachfront locations. Everyone knows beachfront is best. Right? We now beg to differ. This marshfront location overlooking the boardwalk affords more or less constant opportunities to observe the activities of Great Herons, Snowy Egrets, Pelicans, other waterfowl, and occasional appearances of river otters -- all much more interesting than the birds frequenting the beach. Also, being nestled within the quiet Sawgrass community, surrounded by palms, palmetto, pines, and live oak is far preferable to sitting in a line of houses facing the beach. The home is comfortable, clean, and generally well-equipped. And the owner responds quickly to any issues that may arise. Already, we can’t wait to get back! Thanks so much for making this magical place available."

  • Happy family loved this beautiful home!

    "My family and I had a wonderful week at this amazing house. We had 9 adults and 2 children, and we had plenty of beds, with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Everything was nice and new, stunning actually. We had a large common area, plenty of dining space, and a lovely screened-in porch. Although it sounded nice on VRBO, it was even better when we got there! No disappointments. Only hitch was that the Direct TV wasn’t working for a few days – turned out that the problem was an only some branches in front of the satellite dish, and this was easily remedied. The kitchen was spacious and beautiful, and had everything we needed. We took turns cooking dinners, going out for dinner only once during our week. We went in to Beaufort, a cute town, and ate at the Old Bull Tavern, which had great food and service. The house has nice landscaping and backs up to a waterway. The many deer that just ambled through the yard and down the streets at all times were entertaining to watch. A couple of bucks decided to have a tussle in the front yard one evening just as we were trying to photograph them. Were they putting on a show for us?! The beach is across the street, less than a 5 min walk. It was pleasantly peaceful, no crowds in mid-September, and the weather was very nice. We went to the pool a few times as well for true swimming. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We would certainly want to come back to this house again!"

  • Great Home with perfect location

    "Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. This is our first trip to Fripp Island, and hopefully not our last. The island had so much to offer our entire family. We were extremely pleased with the location. It was near the heated pool, the nature center, the dock, and a short walk to the playground. The kids loved fishing and crabbing off the dock. We enjoyed the sunsets and dolphin watching from the dock. The staff at the nature center were so knowledgeable and kind. They really had a love of animals and nature. My boys loved the playground. It was nonstop basketball every morning and every night. My husband and I enjoyed both golf courses, and found the courses to be in great shape filled with abundant wildlife to observe while playing. We spent so much time outside that the house was really secondary. However, the house was beautiful, clean and spacious for our group of 7. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio each morning with a view of the ocean. My little one took daily naps on the lounger outside the master bedroom. Plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our trip. We will have these great memories to cherish for years to come. Hope to be back soon!"

  • Great location

    "The loft was perfect for is location and convenience to everything in town. Lighting was poor as there were light bulbs missing in the track lights and in the bathroom which left it rather dark. We were able to use tv the first night after resetting but never got it working the second night. So much for satellite tv. The owner was very responsive to any questions and helped us try to work through getting the tv to work. We would definitely stay there again. The loft is so interestingly designed and decorated."

Low Country & Resort Islands Travel Tips

The coastal islands and low country of South Carolina are truly unspoiled and naturally beautiful. With quiet sandy beaches, marshes alive with wading birds, some of the best championship golf courses and charming towns to visit, the South Carolina Low Country is hard to beat. Many people who come here on vacation end up retiring to this lovely area due to its mild winters and gentle pace of life.

The Pros and Cons of Low Country Vacation Rentals

Whether you are looking for a quiet beach escape or a livelier resort such as Hilton Head Island, you will find plenty of vacation homes and condos to choose from. Although they do not have room service or a daily maid to clean the bathroom, they do have other advantages which may outweigh the small negatives. Vacation rentals are more spacious even than expensive hotel suites. The furnishings are to a high standard and you can watch cable TV and videos from a comfortable sofa or armchair, rather than sitting on the bed. Kids get their own rooms and better still, their own bathrooms. A fully fitted kitchen makes dining-in a money-saving option, unlike a hotel room. Vacation rentals often have a private balcony or terrace for sitting outside and some offer hot tubs, play areas and swimming pools on-site, making them the ideal option for flexible family vacations.

Low Country Beach Rentals Make the Perfect Base for Family Vacations

South Carolina has plenty of things to see and do for all the family. Choose a beachfront rental and the children will spend hours shell-hunting, digging in the sand, and playing in the sea. Larger resorts offer windsurfing, jet skiing, surfing and snorkeling. The coastal estuaries are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Rent bicycles and leisurely explore the byways and trails on two wheels. Book a half-day fishing trip or boat trip. Towns offer plenty of restaurants, cinemas, theaters, shopping and antiquing. Beach rental homes are the perfect ways to enjoy quality time together as a family, building long-lasting memories to treasure.

Places to Visit Around South Carolina’s Low Country

There are a host of delightful places to visit within easy reach of your vacation home. Savannah is a beautiful and historic city just over the border in Georgia. Further north is the delightful and historic waterfront city of Charleston. Take a horse-drawn carriage tour and learn about its fascinating history. Beaufort is a waterfront artists’ community with a charming collection of historic homes. Head for the harbor where fishing boats will be moored. The Shrimp Festival in early October celebrates the local cuisine with live entertainment and some great food. The ACE Basin Refuge is a bird-watcher’s paradise where numerous birds pass through on their migratory route. See painted bunting, songbirds, herons, birds of prey and osprey along with plenty of local wildlife. The Hunting Island Lighthouse is one of the many which were built along the South Carloina coastline. You can even climb to the top for the best sea views.

Getting to South Carolina’s Low Country

The nearest airport in South Carolina is Charleston International Airport which is 49 miles from Beaufort and a little further from Hilton Head Island vacation rentals. Alternatively, enjoy the scenic roads and drive to your South Carolina Lowlands vacation home.

Low Country Condos are Perfect All Year Long

One of South Carolina’s biggest draws is its delightful year-round climate. Classed as having a humid, subtropical climate, many snowbirds and retirees choose to spend their winters along South Carolina’s shores. Temperatures are cooler on the coast than inland in the summer, with sea breezes tempering the 90 F (32 C) weather often experienced further inland. Cold snaps during the winter may see temperatures drop below freezing occasionally but the days remain pleasantly warm averaging 60 F (16 C) even in January. The state gets some rain throughout the year but it is heaviest in late summer when up to five inches may fall in short but heavy showers.
