  • Amazing View!

    "Fripp is a destination getaway to literally “get away” from your hectic daily life and simply relax and enjoy the island’s overall beauty and tranquility. As soon as you drive over the bridge and stop at the security gate you realize you have just arrived at a magical destination. North Hampton Villas is an incredible location on the island overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Being a second floor, end unit, the view of the Atlantic Ocean is spectacular. Looking over the private pool, you are so close to the ocean you can literally throw a football off your deck and land it in the salt water. When we arrived we realized immediately the pictures from the web listing were outdated; the décor of the unit is updated with a more modern vibe of gray and purple tones. The new sectional couch is amazing. The tv is high end but only connected to basic cable, no HD and very limited channels. The unit is managed by a management company on the island which is a plus. One negative however was we had a problem getting into the unit when we first arrived; the pass code to unlock the door did not work. Fortunately we called in time and they were able to send over a service technician in about 15 minutes. Another disappointment, there is no king size bed as advertised. The Map location linked to the unit through the website is wrong as well. It really is Ocean View versus an inland marsh/ low country view. Keep in mind that everything on Fripp Island is owned and operated by Fripp Island Resort. That means you even need an amenity card to eat at any restaurant. Fortunately, the property owner is a member of the resort and is able to get guest amenity cards for your stay. This should be a deal breaker for you as a guest of any Fripp Island property. Without the amenity card you cannot access anything; pools, tennis, golf, restaurants. Pros: Plenty of space in two bedroom two bathroom unit Ocean View Private pool with outdoor shower Full size washer/ dryer Sectional sofa Amenity cards Onsite management company Cons: Tiny kitchen No HD, basic cable No free wireless Small deck No king bed No golf cart charging stations Gas grill does not work Limited beach access within walking distance (bring your bikes) Yes, I would rent this unit again. The view alone is worth the stay."

  • First trip to Fripp

    "This was our first vacation on Fripp Island. Definately will return!! Your home was perfect for us. We have two adult children and the three bedrooms and baths were ideal. The golf carts were great for touring the island and getting to and from the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there."

  • Spring Break on Fripp

    "We had the opportunity to spend a week In this beautiful house on Fripp in April 2015. We actually purchased our weeks stay at a charity auction to which the owners of the property donated a week at their home. Our stay was perfect. The island is a paradise and the home comfortable and ideally located. 6 adults made the trip, and all enjoyed themselves and would return tomorrow given the chance. It was really nice that the house had plenty of nice beach chairs, and we upgraded to a six person golf cart for a small fee and used it to go everywhere. We are not golfers, but the beach, pools, and fishing were great. We've rented vacation homes before, and must say that this was our best experience yet."

  • Massachusetts Escapees

    "This was our first trip to Harbor Island and the condo and area were even better than advertised! The only negative was the weather......very cold for almost the entire month but gave us pleny of opportunities to explore! We loved Hunting Island , Beaufort, and the great restaurants especially Johnson Creek, Foolish Frog, Plums, and Q on Bay! The condo was huge and the view the best in the complex......we think! We would definitely like to make a return trip!"

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.
