Plum retired as an independent contractor (East Lansing, Michigan) and Jeri retired from her 35 year career in public education, most recently as a school principal (Okemos, Michigan). Until retirement, we enjoyed Fripp during Jeri's school breaks--renting our home to guests when we were not able to be here and longing for the day when we could spend additional time at Fripp. Over the years, we have loved hearing from guests about the things they enjoyed about our villa and Fripp Island.

With retirement, we now spend winter months at Fripp and continue to enjoy sharing our 'southern home' with guests who want an upscale, beautifully furnished and well-maintained vacation home. Nearly two-thirds of our guests are returning visitors to our villa who say that they appreciate the luxury and attention to detail that we provide!

Some Extra Options You Can Consider...

As our guests, you will always enjoy the quiet beauty and peacefulness of Fripp, including the beach, two on-island golf courses, tennis courts, walking and biking paths, and many on- and off-island attractions. Our rental rate includes all linens and departure clean. South Carolina tax (11%) and optional Fripp Club amenity cards are extra.

The purchase of amenity cards entitles you to 'guest membership' in the private Fripp Club, including use of all club facilities (e.g. golf courses, restaurants, fitness center, pools, and tennis courts). Amenity cards must be reserved at least one week prior to your visit. Cost for amenity cards from Memorial through Labor Day is $50 per person per week. Cost during the 'off season' is $35 per person per week.

Special Notes: Our goal is to ensure the highest level of quality for our guests. Therefore, our villa is designed and furnished for adults and not equipped or decorated for families with young children. We rent only by the week (Sat. to Sat.) and do not allow smoking or pets. Maximum occupancy is two people.

About Jeri and Plummer Mifflin

When we are not at Fripp Island, we maintain a year-round home in mid-Michigan one mile from the campus of Michigan State University (Go Spartans!). Plum is a retired building contractor, and Jeri is a retired school principal.

We both love splitting our "home" time between Fripp Island and Okemos, Michigan. A passion for both of us is the game of golf which we love playing together and with friends.

While at Fripp, we enjoy walking Fripp's beautiful beach, socializing with friends, and exploring Beaufort's many art galleries and boutiques. Plum loves outdoor activities, including golf, surf fishing and crabbing. Jeri is an active volunteer (has worked at St. Helena Elementary School and as a volunteer in the Newhaven complex). She also enjoys participating in competitive state and 'low country' golf tournaments.

We love to travel, spend time with friends, and do things with each other in retirement. We have traveled throughout Europe, Mexico, Greece, Alaska, and the Caribbean.

We look forward to sharing our villa with guests during spring, summer and fall months!!!

Jeri and Plummer Mifflin purchased this villa in 1997

Why Jeri and Plummer Mifflin chose Fripp Island

We fell in love with Fripp on our first trip to the 'Low Country' in 1997.

We visited friends at their beachfront home and enjoyed shelling, kite flying, crabbing, surf fishing, golf, and more!

We purchased our villa in Newhaven because we love its beautiful ocean views and friendly community spirit. The quiet laid-back "natural beauty" of Fripp captivated us on our first visit. It still enthralls us over twenty years after our first visit!

When we get the urge to “get off the island,” we enjoy visiting Bluffton, Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston. We ALWAYS love our nearby town of Beaufort which is one of the quaintest towns in America!

We enjoy so many things about Fripp--meeting friendly people from all over the U.S. and world, observing brilliant starry nights, taking beach walks together, teeing up on the first hole just across the street from our villa, and driving our golf cart (Ruby) on rides to see the island's abundant wildlife.

We fell in love with Fripp on first sight and continue to love it more each year--a beautiful Audubon nature preserve featuring deer, egret, eagles, alligators, osprey, and dolphins!!!

Best of all, we love the many friends we have made over the years and enjoy our reunions as we return each fall to our beautiful and secluded island paradise!

What makes this villa unique

Guests staying at our villa will find our villa unlike 'typical' rental properties. Some unique benefits:

Luxury and Quality:

We maintain our villa to the luxurious standards that we want for ourselves--with upscale furnishings, artwork, and accessories--as well as focused attention to all the details that we--and our guests--wish for on a memorable trip.

Special Setting and Location:

Our unique location gives guests a short walk to golf, pool, beach, and dining--without ever getting in a car. With our villa facing south on the Atlantic Ocean, you will have gorgeous views of the water and wildlife! A glass of wine or cup of coffee while relaxing in our rockers mellows out even the busiest professional. Watching dolphins frolic and shrimp boats head out to sea are simple pleasures that can make your day a great one.

Nearby History and Adventure:

When you get the urge to leave the island for adventure outings, the unique history of the Low Country is just a short drive away. Beaufort, Savannah, Hilton Head, and Charleston provide day trip opportunities to experience culture, history, and the arts. From quiet and relaxing to educational and exciting, our location really has it all!

Dolphins, golf, Ruby, biking, walking the beach, and enjoying the amazing view in this ocean front villa equals a truly perfect week. We will return!

Great vacation!

The Mifflins did a fantastic job decorating their villa! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying there again! The only negative was the gas grills in the common area were not working properly.

Everything about the unit was superb. It had everything anyone could want or need. The upkeep is impeccable and the cleanliness was unmatched. We have been to Fripp for 25 straight years and this is easily the finest accommodations we have ever rented.

Great condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

As we have for the past 5 years we really enjoyed our stay in the Mifflin’s condo at New Haven. They remodeled, repainted, and made other improvements since our visit last summer. Their condo is always in tip-top shape. You couldn’t ask for a better location. You walk out the patio door and the ocean is right in front of you. Sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs is especially enjoyable early in the morning and in the evening. We saw dolphins several days. Ruby, their golf cart, is great way to get around the island. We are already looking forward to our Fripp trip next year and our week in this beautiful condo.

Excellent time had by all

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week on Fripp Island . Our condo was the star attraction. It was decorated beautifully and was furnished stylishly . Celebrated our Anniversary and golfed twice and went Back country charter fishing for Red fish. The condo was an excellent base of operations . Our golf cart got us all over the Island and back and forth to dinner as well.

Being an early bird my favorite time of the day was on our porch with a cup of coffee alone watching the sun rises . Next to walking the sand bars in the. Cool mornings for miles .

Will plan a return trip ,but will be sure to return to this exact place .
