Fripp Island Resort's policy on Fripp Club amenity cards for 2014/2015 allows our guests to use the tennis facilities, the golf courses, the pools, rent golf carts and water crafts and use the restaurants on the island. Each guest over the age of 12 must purchase and have in their possession an amenity card to use the resort facilities. As property owners, we must pay full membership fees to the Resort to enable our guests to purchase amenity cards.

The cost for guest amenity cards, for 2014/2015, is as follows: Memorial Day-Labor Day: $50.00/person (4-7 day), $35.00/person (1-4 day); Fall, Winter and Spring: $35.00/person (4-7 day), $25.00/person (1-4 day).

If you purchase additional cards, but, do not pick up your cards, please let us know and we will refund the fee to you. We are not charged for cards that are not picked up.

Guests do not have to buy amenity cards! You can enjoy the beach, the bike paths and the shops without an amenity card. There are many wonderful restaurants, golf courses, bike rentals, golf cart rentals and tennis courts off of the island. Please check with us or the Beaufort, South Carolina Chamber of Commerce for more information.

Camp Fripp offers daily summertime children's activities for ages 3 through 12. Additional nature and social programs can be scheduled for the entire family. Davis Love Park has a brand new playground, basketball court, and volleyball courts.

Fripp Island has a wonderful off-road bicycle path where you and your family can enjoy viewing an abundance of deer, low country birds, and other wildlife. Fripp is a protected wildlife refuge which contains an abundance of many beautiful animals.

Most traffic on Fripp Island is by golf cart which allows you to enjoy a slow-paced quiet atmosphere for a completely relaxed vacation. For your safety and protection, there is a 24-hour security gate as well as police, fire, and paramedic services on the Island.

All you will need for a wonderful beach vacation, at this villa, are your beach chairs and towels!!

About Lee Foster

We are Jim, Lee and Breland Foster from Greenville, South Carolina. Our daughter, Breland, had her first beach experience on Fripp at the age of 18 months. Lee first started visiting Fripp, when she was 8 years old, on vacations with her family. The island was much less established during that time to the degree that she remembers riding horses on the beach with her sister and cousins! Since that time, Lee has visited, on occasion, with college friends from Furman. Jim also began visiting Fripp earlier in his life, during his college years at USC, and afterwards in his young adult years. Fripp has been a part of our lives for a long time and we hope it continues to bring us peace and to nurture our souls!

Lee Foster purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lee Foster chose Fripp Island

We chose Fripp Island as our vacation home location because it is a beautiful low country setting that has a natural, quiet, noncommercial and unhurried atmosphere. We love the uncrowded and quiet beach the most. It is also fascinating to watch the beach change throughout the seasons and years because, as a barrier island, it changes frequently! We also enjoy the beautiful golf courses, the naturalist programs and the other amenities the Club offers. Most of all, we have a lot of fun with our 'Fripp Friends', who are families that also own condos in our complex, from Columbia, SC, Atlanta, Ga, Laurens, SC, Greenville, SC, Ohio, etc. that we only see at Fripp when we happen to be visiting at the same time!

What makes this condo unique

We chose to buy a condo in Phase III of the Capt. John Fripp villas because it is practically beach front and provides a beautiful courtyard where our daughter can play with friends and we can visit old friends and new! We recently (2012) bought another condo in this complex that is an oceanfront 4BR/4BA unit (VRBO #398399). We also like the centralized location and walking distance access to the Tennis Club, the Beach Club, the Olympic Pool, the Fitness Center, the Adult Pool, the Sandbar, the Food Court and to the Fripp Ship!

Great Family Beach location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Fripp. The condo is nicely furnished with all of the amenities that you will need for a great week at the beach. We love the location which gives you a great view of the beach and a large grassy area for the children to play. We will be renting from Lee again.

Great Location and perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

Great central location next to beach club. Very nicely maintained, owners are extremely reasonable and are very clear about the mechanics and expectations of how things work (getting guest passes, parking, tips for checkout and maintaining property), so be sure to read everything they provide as it makes staying there very easy. You can see the Atlantic from the unit and their patio, which includes a well maintained gas grill. Two large bedrooms with connected full bathrooms, each with their own TVs to have some evening separation for kids or other adult guests. Third bedroom is off the living room and works well for kids. Kitchen has exactly what you'd expect in your own vacation home; we were able to cook all week which gives you extra time to enjoy the Island's activities rather than trying to eat out all the time (which is limited on the island anyway). We had four adults and one preschooler, and there was more than enough room for everyone to have their own space during downtime from the beach and pools. We would stay here any time and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Fripp vacation. Do yourself a favor and rent a golf cart, it's well worth the $300.

Wonderful Expeirence

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing family vacation! My husband and I rented this villa with our 3 year old and had my parents come and stay for a few nights as well. The villa very comfortably accommodated all of us.

The location is perfect. You are just a short walk to the beach and centrally located on the island.

Inside of the villa has everything that you need. The family room area had nice comfortable furniture with a nice amount of magazines and puzzles. There is cable with a DVD player which is great, especially if you have kids. We were a bit worried that there would not be a lot of kitchen utensils, but we were wrong! There is everything you need there to do quite a wide variety of cooking. The grill is also a very nice option. We also were very pleased with of bath linens the ability to use their full sized washer and dryer throughout the week - made it very easy to keep clothes, bath towels and linens clean.

Outside the villa is a great patio that goes out onto the courtyard where there is plenty of room to play with the kids. The patio is also great to eat out on or sit and read.

The island as a whole is amazing. During the day you can choose between the beach or one of the pools. We did both some days depending on our mood. There are various activities that the island has everyday for the young and old! While I would also recommend stopping by the grocery store before getting on the island it does also have a couple of restaurants and a small convenience store which makes getting extra items or a random meal easy! Each nigh we took golf cart rides around to go watch the sunset, look for deer, and get ice cream. There are also a couple of parks for you to take the kids to so they can run off any extra energy.

The Fosters were absolutely wonderful to work with. They had a great welcome/information packet with our guest passes waiting in the condo for us. They really make you feel welcome to be in there home while you renting!!!

Thank you for the fabulous vacation Fosters - We are looking forward to renting from you again next year!!!

Perfect villa for families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our four children (ages 8, 7, 5, 18 mos.) stayed here and had such a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The Foster's were so nice to work with and were very helpful through the entire process. The villa had everything we needed for our stay, including a washer and dryer which was very helpful. They even had puzzles for the kids and magazines out for free time! We were able to grill out every night and enjoy the amenities of the island without having to leave but once to get groceries. (As others have recommended, stop to get groceries at the Publix in Beaufort on the way in. It's around a 30 minute drive away.)

The courtyard just out the back door, which leads to the beach, was perfect for the kids to play in while we made dinner. It's partially enclosed and lots of room to play. Also, the beach was just a mere 2-3 minute walk from the villa. We usually went to the beach in the morning, the pools (3 available - 1 heated at 5ft. depth, 1 non-heated at 3ft. depth, and 1 baby pool at 1ft. depth), then lunch, and then relaxed at the beach in the afternoon. The beaches were clean and warm, even in May, and the pools were perfect for us and the kids. I would highly recommend this villa and Fripp Island to anyone - perfect in so many ways! Thank you, Foster's for a wonderful time!
