About Tammy

I'm here to help in anyway i can to each guest. I live in a small town in NC just a few miles from where I grew up. My family, including my 80 year old father and my 20 year old twin sons love Fripp Island like no other place on earth.

Tammy purchased this house in 2005

Why Tammy chose Fripp Island

The question is why not this property? Fripp is the perfect vacation destination and "Be As You Are" is a great home to spend it in. My property is in a wonderful location on the island with beautiful canal views and close proximity to the beach and all island amenities. There is lots of room in the house and a large yard for all ages to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The vacation home that always felt like home to me! The canal view and great sitting area on the dock are a favorite part of this property. You have a quiet location close to all the island has to offer

Frippin great

  • 4 of 5

Overall this is a great house, in a great location. Tammy was very easy to work with and got back to us promptly. I was set up well for a large group and the house was furnished well. My only complaint would be with the cleaning company. When we arrived we needed to sweep the place and wash all of the shower mats. Other than that we had an awesome week.

Roomy and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Be As You Are is roomy and welcoming. The bedrooms allowed for quiet privacy which was important with our guests' ages ranging from 5 to 68. There are several different areas for groups to congregate and have fun. The proximity to the beach and amenities was wonderful. However, the best part of this rental was dealing with the owners. They were quick to respond to any concerns and were always extremely helpful. We can't wait to return to Fripp next year.

Loved this house and the location!

  • 5 of 5

Be As You Are is a great rental. We stayed a week in July and had a great time. We had plenty of room for everyone, with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. All of the rooms were very large, nicely decorated and comfy beds. The Carolina room was our favorite room, only sat in living room with TV one time. Having two golf carts was a plus as well as the dock. We could put in our paddle boards and kayaks and paddle to Prichards Island. Make sure you eat at Johnson Creek and Paninis on the waterfront in Beaufort. Tammy was wonderful to rent from and answered all our questions. We have finally found our favorite rental on Fripp!

Great for large groups! Great views

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting houses for years on fripp & this has been one of our favorites. The rooms are all large & there's tons of living space. The king room downstairs has the comfiest rental property bed I've ever slept in! The canal is beautiful around sunset for pictures. Both of the golf carts work & are fast which is not usually the case with rental houses. Definitely recommend for a friends beach weekend!

While on Fripp enjoy all the beautiful scenery and wildlife available. You can take in plenty of activities including shelling, kayaking, paddleboards, nature center, gift shops, golf & swimming. Fripp is a wildlife sanctuary and you can see many species of birds including my favorite The Eagle! You'll see Alligators (do not feed or approach these), deer and others. Fripp is also a favorite nesting area for Sea Turtles. You can see our turtle patrol out each morning around sunrise locating nests. Off the island you'll find Beautiful Beaufort with its great shops and historical homes and great restaurants and nightlife. There are a wealth of historical sights in this area and if you're lucky enough to have a rainy day take some of these sights in. You can take a day trip to Charleston which is around a 2 hour drive, hit the outlet malls in nearby Hilton Head or even venture over to Savannah for an afternoon. However you decide to spend your time while visiting our beautiful island, you are sure to leave with memories to last a lifetime!
