Completely renovated in 2005 and repainted and new blinds installed in 2013, there is no better rental unit on Fripp Island than this 3BR/3BA Capt. John Fripp Villa. This Villa offers EVERYTHING you need except food and beach toys! Pack lightly and ENJOY your vacation. Leave the work to us! We provide all that you need...just read our rental agreement found at the link below for more information.

This villa is OCEANFRONT with beach directly in front at all tides, AND this villa regime has ITS OWN POOL. Look out and walk out the sliding glass doors onto the best beach on Fripp Island and the Atlantic Ocean. The pool is in the courtyard of the villa regime, and access is limited to owners and renters.

This villa has 3 bedrooms - 2 upstairs (both with king beds) and 1 downstairs (with a day bed that converts to two twin beds) - and a full-size sleeper sofa downstairs. There are 3 full bathrooms. The villa will accommodate up to 6 people (no more than 6 people permitted ).

This villa offers summer renters the ability to purchase 'amenity cards' entitling renters to full access to all amenities on Fripp Island. Cards cost $50 per person per week during the summer. No cards are needed for children 12 and under. Amenities for card holders include 2 wonderful golf courses (reduced greens fees), 10 tennis courts (court fees apply), several restaurants, bike and boat rentals, several Resort pools (no fees) including an Olympic swimming pool, an adult pool with a beach bar and live music, and the 'Cabana Club' which is most popular with children and families.

Renters who choose not to purchase the amenity cards may still enjoy the beach, our private pool, and the bike paths; rent golf carts through local companies; and play golf on the Fripp Island courses (regular greens fees).

Beaufort, Hilton Head Island, Charleston, and Savannah are all short drives away, and offer numerous activities for the whole family.

Great Family Spring Break!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this unit - so convenient to everything....the beach, the pool, the stores! Loved that it was in the middle of the island! And it is fully stocked with everything you could need except a golf cart and amenity cards, but those were easy to get through the owner. Would definitely stay here again!!!

No bettter place to stay on the island

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our vacation was beyond perfect!! The condo was immaculate and steps from the ocean. We grilled out every night while our kids played on the grass overlooking the water, a true dream come true!! The owners were so amazing to work with and had everything ready and stocked upon arrival. Having the private pool is also a huge bonus! We truly could not have dreamed up a more perfect week and can't imagine staying anywhere else! Highly recommend!!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation spot! Beach access was easy for everyone and the condo had everything we needed. This place felt so safe. The condo was clean and well maintained. There were plenty of towels and the access from the sliding door to the beach was perfect. The deer came to see us each morning and the kids were thrilled. I hope to visit again soon!
