Overview

About the property

Estate, 8 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

NOTE ABOUT THE CALENDAR:

Recently HomeAway/VRBO instituted a change in the booking procedures. Currently anyone would be able to "book" my property without my approval...and if I come along and decide I prefer to NOT rent to that group...I would earn a "mark" against me.

I prefer to approve ALL the groups that desire to rent MY home.

So...I have blocked the entire calendar. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Just pick a date and I will let you know right away if it is available.

For the "season"....Memorial to Labor Day...I will try to edit this screen with what dates are available.

Thanks :)

The best location on the island. Less than a one minute walk to the beach (~ 100 yards). Always great beach. Sandy and wide. A short two minute walk to the beach club complex. Corner of Rock Beauty and Tarpon Boulevard.

There are eight (8) bedrooms. Wi-Fi, Apple TV, 65" LED, Keurig !

LAYOUT OF THE HOUSE: As you enter, you immediately sense the size of the house. Spacious and airy. The kitchen / dining / great room constitute the central axis.

On the left side of the house are three bedrooms: the first bedroom is a queen. The second bedroom has two twin beds. These two bedrooms open to a central hall. These bedrooms are also connected by a bath suite.

The connection room has two lavatories. Off this room is another room with the commode and the shower. With this design, one guest can be taking a shower in full privacy, while another guest uses the lavatory.

The last bedroom on this LEFT side is a master. King with private bath.

The RIGHT side of the house is a mirror image of the left side, except that a laundry area is located in the central hallway.

All bathrooms have cultured marble counter tops and ceramic tile floors. The mirrors are huge: 4' x 8'. One of the master suites has a Kohler steam shower. All bedrooms have ample closet space. The corner bedrooms have flat screen LCD’s. Luggage holders and comfy chairs round out the bedroom décor.

There are two bedrooms upstairs. One has a queen, tv, love seat and walk in closet. The other bedroom has a queen + two sets of twin BUNK beds, a 50” flat screen TV, ample play space, toys, etc. There is a full hall bath for both of these two bedrooms. This area also has its own HVAC system. This room is heavily insulated. Quiet. ZZzzzzz

THE KITCHEN: The spacious kitchen has just about everything you could wish for. A professional range with gas burners and a very large griddle (14' x 24'). The oven is large with a see-through door. Two Sub Zero refrigerator / freezers with ice makers, two very quiet dishwashers, two microwaves, warming drawer, two disposals, two sinks and a Scotsman ice maker to supplement the ice makers in the refrigerators. Plenty of china, cutlery and cooking/mixing/serving pieces.

The counter area lay-out allows three chefs to be using the kitchen at the same time. Really. Plenty of space. Usual appliances: blender, toaster, coffee maker(s), and a hot strip for other plug-in's. One of the neat things about the kitchen is the lighting.

Three types of lighting: under counter, over cabinet and task specific. This way, you can pick your mood.

The dining room naturally flows from the kitchen area. As you can see in the photos, there is a large elevated bar. We chose wrought iron furniture with clear glass tops for the dining experience. The Pergo floors invite you to take off your shoes and stay a while.

As we continue in this area, the great room is next. It is a natural fit. Two love seats, two leather La-Z-Boy recliners and a generous sofa with coffee table form the 'U' shape for TV watching. We have a 65" LED TV that gives great views from just about any angle. In fact, there is not a place in the entire central axis without a view of the screen. You can even sit at the table and enjoy your favorite game or movie.

Even though the house is large, there is also a warm feeling that comes from being able to separate from others in your own personal space. The house is very quiet.

Underneath the house is the game room. 9' pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, card table. With its black and white tile, neon signs, stereo, TV's, wet bar, it is the perfect get-away room.

The house has 5 HVAC systems for comfort. The three bedrooms on the left side have a system. Same for the bedrooms on the right. Kitchen / dining / great room has another. Upstairs area has another. And the last one is in the game room. This way, you can pick your comfort level. Bring your own grill. You can pick one up @ Wal-Mart for $30. This way it is new and ready for your use.

The large screen porch is always a favorite. Folks tend to congregate on the screen porch. A cup of coffee or a glass of wine, your favorite book, and in a few moments those “things” from your inland life will be melting away, as the sights and sounds of Fripp embrace you. The hammock is a treat.

The owner is attentive to both the condition of the house and the overall experience of the guest.

Comments: Amenity cards are available for purchase at extra cost. Guest is required to perform a few housekeeping assists: pick up and take out the trash, load/start the dishwashers. Cleanliness is important. Golf cars are available for $175 or $275 per week.

The house is located at the best beach access on Fripp. Even at high tide, there is always plenty of sandy beach to enjoy. I've listed a few competing properties. All are in great condition. However, we think you’ll agree that you get more for your money if you stay at Invincible.

Competing properties: vrbo/48166, vrbo/51276, vrbo/58576.

This property, Invincible, is a bargain. Come again. Often.

About Fripp. Fripp Island is NOT Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head. There are NO traffic jams. No neon. Pizza and ice cream available at the Beach Club Cafe. It is affordable, quality, coastal living. Only about a dozen street lights on the entire island. When the sun goes down, it is DARK. Fripp is a nature preserve. Deer come out at dusk. There are no crowds at Fripp. Family friendly. Most folks use golf cars to zip around the island. Comfy and cozy. Come and be one of us ! Great times were had by all. eurousuen,tf.hotmail.bypass./.Frippout.1.Nejrowurjwjcne.skkwk.wnoc.ekdo.

Perfect for Parris Island Celebration

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad we looked just a little further out to find this house. It was well worth the few extra minutes to drive to Parris Island for our son's graduation from boot camp. We are a large family and had most of us coming from different states to attend and this house gave us plenty of space and full functionality to feed and entertain a large and diverse group. Tom was extremely helpful and a joy to work with. I hope we can return another time for a more extended stay.

A FIVE!!! OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend our family's Christmas celebration!  We appreciated the spaciousness of the home, the proximity to the beach and the super long dining table that seats us all!  The kitchen is large and well stocked, making cooking for large numbers a pleasure and the upstairs is an ideal space for the kids to play with their Christmas toys.  The overall layout of the house is wonderful -- for both sleeping and socializing.  It's such a pleasure to come back to this beautiful home again and again!

Perfect house for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing together at Fripp for 25 years and have stayed in many different houses. Tom's house is by far the best one yet! We range in age from 6 months to 85 years and the house is great for all. The number of bedrooms is just right, and the bunk room upstairs is great for the big kids. The kitchen has 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers which works well for our large group. The game room downstairs is a great also. Although not on the beach front, the location is a short walk to a wide beach. The house is very close to pools and shops. Tom was very responsive to any questions that we had. We hope to spend many more vacations in this beautiful house!

A WONDERFUL HOUSE TO SPREAD OUT IN

  • 5 of 5

If you need a lot of room and close to the beach you couldn't ask for a better house. It is close to the pools, tennis courts, shops, Starbucks and pizza !! We love that you can just hop into the golf carts and be at the beach or pool. The kids especially love the deer that roam free on the island and at night looking for alligators on the golf course. This year they loved going to the Nature Preserve and holding snakes, lizards and seeing the baby alligators. This is our second year at this property and we will definitely be back. We all love the quiet life of Fripp Island and look forwarded to many more trips. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
