About Lauren

We are originally from Columbia, SC, but we live in Atlanta.

Lauren purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lauren chose Fripp Island

Our family has been vacationing on Fripp for over 40 years. It is our second home, and we hope you love it just as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to ask about places to eat, and things to see!

What makes this villa unique

Hands down, the our villa provides the best sunset view on the island. In the summer the sun sets directly over the marsh and canal, which our deck over looks. The villa is tucked far enough away where you get peace and quite, but close enough to hear the crashing waves with the windows open. A 5 minute walk or 2 minute golf cart ride right across the street will put you on the most popular part of the beach. The location is just fabulous.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at Fripp Island. It was absolutely breath taking. I've been to Carolina Beaches my whole life and nothing captivated my eye like Fripp Island. It was so quaint.

We have two boys and they absolutely loved it. The deer were so neat to see. Unlike anything you would see anywhere else. The condo was perfect. The view was amazing. We ate dinner every night out doors here. We loved the back deck and marsh view. The sounds were so relaxing, ocean surf, the wildlife . This a true Gem. That we as a family can't wait to return. If you want a relaxing trip away from the hustle and bustle this is it. The scenery is gorgeous the bike trails beautiful. And the sea shells we spotted were awesome. We felt home. And thank you for your hospitality in letting us stay. Can't wait to return. I would highly recommend this property.

It doesn't get any better than this...

  • 5 of 5

We had our 2nd annual trip to this Tennis Villa. It's perfect for our family, which includes our 2 boys, 6 & 8. We played on the beach, watched the sunsets over the marsh and rode the bikes and golf cart all over the island. The villa was stocked for any type of cookware we needed, it's exceptionally clean and cozy. Lauren is a pleasure to work with, as well. To sum it up, we made incredible memories at this little place and absolutely LOVE Fripp Island.

We enjoyed our stay on Fripp Island taking our daily walk on the beach. The island is very beautiful so much to see. The kitchen could use some updating, the out side grill was fine cooked out almost every night. We injoyed the deck the view was great we loved the sun set.

Beautiful marsh view!

Perfect location across the street from the beach, and a gorgeous marsh view sunset on the back porch each evening! Interior is cute, clean, and comfortable! Loved our stay here!

Great Villa, even better owners!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second or third time staying in the Presley's tennis villa. We absolutely love the seclusion of the villa, away from all the hustle and bustle of the JFV crowds. Upon arrival, we entered the villa which was spotless and set up just the way I remembered from before. We had a couple of minor issues while there, for example the fridge quit working, all of which they immediately took care of in their best ability because that's just the kind of people they are. We will definitely be returning to this villa in the future! Thank you for another great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks! We love having you stay with us. We now have a new grill, pots and pans, kitchen faucet and a new track on the deck door. Hope y'all stay next year!

Beautiful view and decor

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing short week here. The views off the deck are amazing of the marsh and wildlife. The villa had everything we needed and was decorated in a light, beachy theme. The beach is a quick 5 minute walk right across the street. There are also 2 adult bikes we used everyday. Hopefully we can come back next year!
