About Lauren

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

Lauren purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lauren chose Low Country & Resort Islands

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.

My husband, myself and our 2 boys (5 & 7) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Villa... our first week-long vacation in over 5 years.

Over our entire 7 days, we couldn't find one negative aspect of our stay. The villa was very clean, had a well equip kitchen, comfortable beds, and plenty of space for us to live comfortably. Overall, it has a very cozy feeling... It felt very much like home.

During the day, the views from the back deck were gorgeous... at night the stars seemed to go on forever. It was incredible!

I'm excited that we found our annual vacation spot! Lauren is such a pleasure to work with and very responsive.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your place. It's the perfect vacation spot for making memories!

Great view, peaceful area.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this condo on Fripp Island over Christmas 2015. We probably spent half of our waking hours on the porch; the view over the marshlands is beautiful and tranquil. The condo itself was just the right size for us and had everything we needed--kitchen tools, wifi, games, etc. Fripp Island is a cool little community, and there's lots of stuff to do nearby. We rode the condo-provided bikes around the island, went to Hunting Island State Park, visited the ruined church and fort on St. Helena, and saw a drive-in movie in Beaufort. My wife was six months pregnant at the time, and it was a perfect last hurrah for the two of us before the birth of our daughter.

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

There is something restful about being able to stay at a place with a view over the water. This tennis villa with it's ever-changing beautiful views over the saltwater marsh made for a relaxing, peaceful vacation. We enjoyed seeing the sunsets and wildlife from the livingroom and deck. Clean, comfortable and cozy accomodations made our holiday complete. The beach is an easy walking distance, and the overall villa setting is serene. Great owners to rent from! We're looking forward to going back!

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful sunset view this villa offers is just one of the many facets that makes this villa a perfect stay. It is conveniently situated in the middle of the island but provides a peaceful vacation. The beach access is just a short walk and offers the best of low/high tides. Comfortably furnished, the owners have decorated this villa with just the right touches to make you feel right at home. The kitchen supplied everything we needed to cook our own meals. We have been visiting Fripp Island for over 23 years and have rented condos and houses and this villa definitely ranks right up there as a place we will definitely rent again.

Nature lover's paradise

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a dream come true for us. Just a walk from the ocean and right on the edge of a saltwater marsh, it couldn’t be in a better spot for nature lovers like us. The long, very wide ocean beach is new every morning and loaded with all kinds of shells, birds and sea creatures. The marsh is our first view out the window each day. We love watching the antics of the pelicans and cormorants diving in the tide waters. This year, we actually saw at least three river otters swimming and playing in the marsh several days in a row! The villa is beautifully decorated and very comfortable - we had everything we needed for an outstanding vacation!

Wonderful return visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our third spring staying in your beautiful villa! The place is always clean and the owners have done something new each time we're here. The villa has the old Fripp/beach feel, but is decorated like a peaceful spa. We love the magnificent sunsets over the marsh while feeding a deer or spying on a egret. We can't wait for our next trip. Thank you for sharing your special place with us. It's clear you love Fripp and your space a lot!
