About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)


My 2 bedroom/2 bath condo is directly across from the Beach Club, the beach. The condo has been completely remodeled with new ceramic flooring and countertops in kitchen and baths, new carpet, new lighting fixtures and appliances.

The relaxing top floor view from the rear screened porch (where smoking is permitted) is of the marsh and tidal creek and is a great place to start your day with coffee. There is a large deck overhanging the canal for crabbing and fishing and it is a great place to have a glass of wine and grill a steak at the end of the day.

You are likely coming to Fripp for 3 miles of ocean front white sand beach across the street. There are numerous bike trails and 2 adult bicycles are furnished. A golf cart is furnished and this is the way guests prefer to see the island.. Fripp Island is a wildlife preserve. No where else will you find over 300 docile deer, allowing many photo opportunities. In addition there is various wildlife, birds and water foul and alligators. Walk the educational Audubon Trail and visit Hunting Island State Park across the bridge from Fripp. Hunting Island has many bike trails and a light house children enjoy climbing. Don't miss the opportunity to Visit Bay Street in historic Beaufort where great food, relaxing views and shopping are yours to enjoy.

My husband and I booked this condo at the last minute. It's not easy to get a two night stay on Fripp, so we were grateful to find a place to stay. It's also not easy to find a place with a recliner, which is a must for my disabled husband who can't sit comfortably on standard couches or chairs. So for that, the condo gets high marks. Ben, the owner was also very accommodating to our lodging predicament. We had to move out of Ben's condo and move into a different condo AND be ready and dressed for a semi-formal wedding in Beaufort....all on the same day. Ben granted us a late check out to save us from being homeless longer than we could stand. The condo was comfortable and well appointed with good appliances and beach accessories, but we weren't there long enough to use them. The WiFi was good with detailed instructions on how to log on in the event of a power outage which must have happened the day before we arrived, because we had to re-set the router.

There were a few things that weren't great: Third floor condo with no elevator made it challenging to lug our stuff up to the room, given my husband's disability. The stainless steel coffee maker carafe did not have a lid on it, so the coffee didn't stay hot. Had we brought that to Ben's attention sooner, he would have replaced it that day, I'm sure. The flatware was a bit on the flimsy side, but we really didn't eat that many meals there. All in all, this is a comfortable condo run by an attentive and amiable guy.

Rental for Family Visit

  • 5 of 5

The price was less than the hotels in Beaufort and Ben was easy to work with. The condo was well kept and close to the beach. The rental did not include amenities such as access to restaurants or golf courses but did include a golf cart with the rental which actually was a better perk because most of the visit was spent off site. Beach access is free to everyone with island access. So, if you want a reasonably priced rental that is clean, spacious, and walking distance to the beach, this is a great option.

Clean, cozy, and wonderful people to work with!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very hesitant at first because we have never stayed in a pet friendly place. After Ben assured us his rental was clean, we decided to give it a try!! This unit was spotless and you could not tell anyone had a pet inside ever!! Everything we needed was provided and more....such as beach accessories, cooking ware, and plenty of towels for my 5 member family!! Ben was more than nice and gave us prompt assistance when we called to ask a question!! The golf cart was great and the 2 bikes helped my husband and I keep up with the kids on their bikes!! Couldn't ask for a better stay and WE WILL .BE BACK TO THIS RENTAL!! Thanks Ben!!

Prefect For Relaxing Week

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this condo for a week getaway to relax. The condo had everything we needed for our stay but could use a little updating but was prefect for our needs. We had a great time at island even though weather wasn't that great. We recommend this condo and Fripp Island if you want a private island to relax and see wildlife especially the deer. Island isn't commercialized so a great place to walk beach and relax. Golf cart was a great plus also.

Nice and Clean Fripp Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this sweet little condo. Very clean and comfortable. The owner, Mr Hays, was great to work with. Good location on the island. The golf cart is a fun bonus, too! This third floor condo is quiet.
