Come once and experience all Fripp Island has to offer and you'll be hooked for life. Fripp Island is a 3000 acre, gated island which is known for its scenic beauty, friendly wildlife (deer, alligators, birds, dolphin, turtles and more), and 3-1/2 miles of uncrowded beaches. It is a non-commercial, wonderful get-away to relax, yet activities such as golf, tennis, fishing, boating, planned activities, etc. make it a fun place to be for the whole family.

Historic Beaufort, SC and Hunting Island State Park are a very short drive away. Summer is perfect, but Fripp is also wonderful all year round with many very pleasant fall, winter, and spring days for golf trips and family spring break vacations.

Our house has a central and convenient location that allows quick access to the beach and all the resort’s amenities. There are two championship golf courses - the George W. Cobb Ocean Point course is a true ocean/link style, and the Davis Love III Ocean Creek course received a 4 1/2 star rating by Golf Digest. There is a special Wee Links course set aside for children just learning the game. There are ten tennis courts along with professional instructors & clinics. While we are not beachfront, the island has 28+ public beach crossovers with cart and bike parking.

The island has 5 restaurants & 7 pools. Enjoy the ocean breeze and view of the inlet at the newer Cabana Club Complex (one heated pool, large kiddie pool complete with frog slide and one pool with misty caves and waterfalls). There are two great outdoor bars, ice cream, pizza, ship’s store and convenience market.

Camp Fripp hosts day camp and kids night out programs for youths 3 to 12 (so parents can have some time alone). There are teen activities for 12 to 17 year olds as well as nature programs, social programs and more for the entire family.

Need more? Walk, run and ride bikes on the bike path. The resort has a wide array of rental fun available. Bikes, motor scooters, jet skis, canoes, kayaks, and even fishing boats can be rented by the day or week. The island has cruises available for dolphin watching, shelling at nearby islands, and even sunset cruises. Charter fishing is available, too.

INCLUDED: Use of two 4 seat golf carts with weekly rental. Two (2) Resort Guest Cards with most weekly rentals. Resort Guest Cards cards may be purchased for $25-$50 for rentals of less than one week or if additional passes are needed. Only children older than 12 need a card. SC Tax/fee of 11% is extra and cleaning of $150 for less than 5 night rental. Refundable security deposit of $500 required.

The Resort Guest Cards will allow you to enjoy the total resort experience - available only if you rent from a club member. With the Resort Guest Cards, you can: dine in the only on-island restaurants, play golf or tennis, swim in the resort pools, enroll the kids at Camp Fripp and rent kayaks, boats, etc. thru Rental Excursions.

Fripp never lets us down! Our family had a wonderful week...again!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is great. It is so close to beach and pools!! Having 2 golf carts was a nice perk to the property. Had lots of deer enjoying the back yard which thrilled the grandchildren!! I'm ready for another week...!!

Another fantastic week at Fripp!! You can't beat this amazing house and it's wonderful owners! After several years staying here, it feels like home. It actually felt like home the first time! We start counting down to our next visit every year on the day we leave!

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Fripp Island....I had a friend who recommended the island. I am a gulf girl. We always stay ocean front on the gulf, so Fripp Island and thus house was a big change for me and my family and I was skeptical. I definitely did NOT expect to fall head over heels for the island like we did.

Michele's home was perfection. You always wonder how old/true the pictures are in a listing. Her home was just as described and just as the pictures showed. We had six adults and one child and had plenty of room. The kitchen was well stocked, except for scissors. Our only issue/complaint was fitting us all in the living room to watch a movie together at night, just not quite enough space for all of us. The two golf carts were great with our group size, as well.

We are already planning a return trip this year and hopefully we will be staying with Michele again and for any future trips.

Beautiful home in a perfect location on Fripp Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this home and again we couldn't have asked for anything better. The house was large enough to accommodate our family and gave everyone plenty of room; the bunk room was perfect for the children and the screened porch with TV was a hit with everyone. This home is just a couple of minutes from the beach via golf cart; close to the parks and marina. I think the beach on this part of the island was the most beautiful with outrageous views of sunrise and sunset.

Our family has requested we come back to this house every year!!

Favorite Family Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5

Great Fall Break destination for my family and our friends (4 adults and 4 children ages ranging from 6 to 11). This was our 3rd vacation on Fripp Island and we always stay at Michele's house! My husband loves to fish and spent mornings and evenings on the pier at Wardle's Landing. We would spend half the day at the beach and half the day at The Cabana Club (our favorite pool). And if anyone was ever needed a break from the sand and swiming we would take a golf cart drive or bike ride around the island to look at deer and check out the sites. Even Tropical Storm Julia which kept us indoor all day on the Wednesday of our trip didn't stop out fun. We played games, watched movies and cooked great meals. We had two wonderful meals at the Bonito Boathouse and at at the house the rest of the time. We never even ventured off the island. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, etc. The bedrooms are comfortable and the kids loved the bunk room. We would highly recommend this destination and this house!

Comfort, Style, Service, and Fun

  • 5 of 5

What a great get away. I cannot say enough great things about Fripp, but feel that Michele and her house had a large part of creating that experience. Centrally located to the pool, beach, and marina, we could explore the entire island all day every day. Such a great place to cook at, entertain at, and relax at. Since it was our first time at Fripp, Michele made us feel like we were locals. We knew what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. We had such a magical experience which we hope to make as an annual vacation for years to come! The house had that great island style and laidback feel. There was room for everyone. Anytime we had a question she was quick to respond and always went way above and beyond! We are sure you will have a similar experience.
