About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
Location, Location, Location, when you think low country and Carolina Beaches, this is what you imagine. A wonderful four bedroom home that sits on the canal with a private dock and across the street from the beach. I don't care how bad of a golfer you are, you can hit a five iron from the front yard to the beach. You can also pull you boat up to the dock that sits 100 feet behind your house. If this doesn't appeal to you, then walk 300 yards to the beach club. You can lay by one of the three pools next to the Sandbar Pool Bar and have the staff bring you drinks and tell you when it is time to apply more sun tan lotion.
This is a family home, it has a 20 foot by 40 foot dinning room and family room that connects to the outside deck and grill area. A wonderful feature of this home, it is all on one floor so there are no difficult stairs to navigate for small children or older adults.
As you can tell we love our home and would love to share it with you. The accommodations are great and the location is unbeatable. If your goal is to be within walking distance to everything on the island and your family has ten or less members, this is the house for you. If walking isn't your bag, then a golf cart or bicycle will get you where you want to go.
If the sound of the ocean hitting the rocks keeps you awake at night or fishing boats moving up and down the canal bothers you during the day, then don't rent this home.

Historic Beaufort is only 18 miles away and has great shopping and restraunts. Hunting Island is a State Park and is adjacent to Fripp with a wonderful light house and nice nature walks. In addition to the two golf courses on Fripp there are dozens of courses within a 30 minute drive that are off island.
Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: My mother-in-law, Jewell Parker, along with three of her friends purchased this home almost 30 years ago. They were all from Statesboro, Georgia and had visited Fripp on many occassions. The story goes that they invited their husband on a trip to Fripp, but they were all too busy to go. The four ladies returned home a few days later with a deed in hand and had paid cash for their beach treasure. My wife believes they purchased this home just to spite their husbands. I guess this is what happens when four women in their 60's go to the beach without their husbands. There is a lesson to be learned and my wife is not allowed at Fripp without me. After many years of wonderful family vacations and many bridge parties held by the previous four owners, this home was passed to our family in 2004. We live in Atlanta and are fortuant to get to visit Fripp many times a year. Four generations of our family have enjoyed this home and the great family experiences that are special to Fripp. We hope to pass this on to our childen in a few years and continue the memories.
