About Jenny Brooks

Hello Travelers! We are a family of five who fell in love with Fripp Island and felt we had to own a part of it. It has been our family's special getaway since 2006 and we hope to enjoy it for many years to come. I am a teacher of the gifted in Georgia and my husband is a culinary instructor and a musician. Together, we own and manage properties with our Fripp Island property being our only vacation rental.

Our picture shows us on a family photo scavenger hunt on Fripp. We almost won!

Jenny Brooks purchased this house in 2006

Why Jenny Brooks chose Fripp Island

Of all the coastal locations we could have invested in, we chose Fripp because of its timeless attractions: nature preservation and family activities. The island has all the modern amenities: two incredible golf courses, excellent tennis courts, great restaurants and beautiful pools. But it was the personal contact with nature and the activity staff on Fripp that sold us. I don't know of any other place where my kids can catch fiddler crabs all morning, have lunch with a few deer, go shelling on the 'Fripper', and then have Kids' Night Out at Camp Fripp. The greatest thing about Fripp is that as a mother of three, I feel my children are safe to explore the world on Fripp (the island is gated, the Camp Fripp and Activity Center staff are perfect and our home is on a dead end street so no through traffic while they are playing.) Also on Fripp, the kids can get out and explore the coastal tides and nature trails instead of playing video games all day. I feel that we can teach our kids about nature and ocean life in real life not just reading about it in a book or watching it on TV. Neighboring islands like Pritchard's and Hunting were also super bonuses because Pritchard's is an uninhabited wildlife preserve and Hunting is a state park with a historic lighthouse and preserved homesite. Older kids and parents may kayak over to Pritchard's Island for exploration of untouched nature.

What makes this house unique

In our home, we enjoy the best of both worlds. Our incredible ocean view enables us to watch for dolphins while washing the dishes or just rocking on the veranda! We can enjoy a rare Atlantic sunset from our windows and then have family movie night on our 47' flat screen TV. During the day, take our 6-9 person golf cart all over the island without having to strap a kid into a carseat. When we first came to fripp, I had three kids still in car seats so this was a huge bonus to our vacation enjoyment! We chose our location on Fripp because we are within 100 yards of everything a family needs access to: Camp Fripp, the Cabana Club's 3 pools, restaurant, and salon, the Skull Inlet pier (perfect for fishing, crabbing or just watching the sunset), the Activity Center (where they have many animals, arts and crafts, and daily planned activities like family scavenger hunts) and the 12th hole of the Ocean Creek Golf Course (an easy walk over to meet your golfers while they play.)

Guestbook comments from the owner


Sorry for the delay in extending our sincere appreciation for allowing us to

stay at your Fripp home. We had a blast. It was the perfect home and great

location on the island. The kids loved every aspect of the island

activities. Each day we enjoyed the morning ocean tide and the "rivers"

between each sandbar, lunch/tv/rest and swimming in the outdoor master hot

tub, afternoon visits to Camp Fripp, playground, Hunting Island and Shrimp

Shack, late afternoon swims at Cabana Club (kids loved all 3 pools and hot

tub), evening golf cart rides around island (golf cart was a kid highlight),

and best of all mom & dad relaxing on porch listening to ocean while the

kids watched videos. The kids loved the wild and ocean life (alligators,

deer, lizards, frogs, turtles, crabs, dolphins, mosquitoes-NOT) and the

banana tree at the Cabana club.

We will be sure to recommend your home and Fripp Island to friends and

family. We hope to return next year.

Thanks for the making our trip affordable and most of all a very very

memorable experience for our family.

Great ocean view from balcony!

  • 5 of 5

Very good location...the street is a dead end and not much traffic at all, which made it good for kids riding their bikes. We loved the ocean view and how close we were to the cabana pool. Spacious bedrooms and a nice clean house. All the balcony/porch setups were very nice and always seemed to have a good breeze coming through. Overall, we loved Fripp Island (as it was our first trip there) and the Brooks' house was excellent! Can't wait to visit Fripp again!

Loved this place! Second trip to Fripp. Loved first place but this one killed it.

  • 5 of 5

First visit last year stayed on Bonito and very pleasant. This time was awesome to watch the ocean and inlet with the tide coming in and out and seeing Pritchard's Island and watching sunset from the dock. House completely had everything we needed, very comfortable and made a group of 6 happy. Owner incredible to communicate with and just loved the whole thing!!! Son loved golf cart! Just wished we had planned ahead and grilled out in driveway. Thank you so much Brooks Family. Worth every hard-earned penny.

Great house with beautiful ocean view, proximity to pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The location is wonderful -- right near the pool and with a beautiful view of the ocean. The included limo golf cart was a huge bonus. The house was glistening clean on our arrival, and well-equipped. The layout was great for our group of 6 (4 adults + 2 children), with a great room for the kids that could have included space for up to 4 kids in total, and great spaces for the adults. Plus, everyone had their own bathroom, which was wonderful. Couldn't have been happier with the stay.

Beautiful home with a gorgeous ocean view. The location was perfect! Walk to pool and fishing pier!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. This is our third trip to Fripp Island and this was our favorite home. The house is spacious, clean and very comfortable! We spent many hours on the outdoor porch taking in the beautiful ocean views. The xl golf cart was the perfect size for all 7 of us. We can't wait to come back and stay again!
