Hurricane Matthew total renovation October 17. Everything is brand new except the tub! An excellent value, with incredible view and access. Check out our video!:
Your Home away from home awaits..AND it's right on the ocean! Our villa is off the beaten path for a true island getaway. Located in the scenic Ocean Point area, we chose this first-floor unit for its quiet location separated from the busyness of the center island.
50 feet from the waves, a VERY short walk to the beach, a private pool and golf across the street. Listen to the waves at night and watch the dolphins from your living room..Literally!
5 people will sleep comfortably in this 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths condo; the master has a queen size, the 2nd bedroom has bunks, the top bunk is a twin, the bottom a full.
The villa was renovated completely (new kitchen, appliances, bathrooms, floors, paint) has upscale furniture, the decor reflects the ocean and includes many pieces of local art.
There are books about the island and the area and a great information binder waiting for you with everything there is to see and do. Don't forget to sign the guest book! You will feel like you are visiting a friends home not renting a strangers house: We like to think we have thought of everything..
Everything is there, linens, kitchenwares, towels and beach towels. You bring your tooth brushes and bathing suits and you are pretty much set!
Our villa is DIRECT Oceanfront, facing east, from LR/DR/Kitchen. The Ocean Point Golf Course is on the opposite side (facing west), where the MR and ensuite bathroom are located. The 2nd bedroom, is perfect for kids with the fun bunks and peek-a-boo window to the living area. This is a unique floor plan at North Hampton villa!
The villa is situated in the North Hampton building (only 23 villas), at the quieter and sunnier tip of the island. The building has its own pool (amenity card not required), and new elevator (2016). This area of Fripp is perfect for lovers of oceanfront golf, as well as those who enjoy the magical tranquility of the ever-changing ocean. Take a brief and beautiful 2-min. walk from the villa ... to the gorgeous Ocean Point beach access, which many Fripp Islanders consider as the most beautiful of Fripp's many beach accesses.
Our home is consistently maintained, because a well-maintained home means a great deal to our guests and to us. We have a local manager available to help whenever needed. The entire villa has been repainted in soft tranquil colors Spring 17 and 2 flat screens have been added (also included of course high speed Wi-Fi, and multimedia system with Netflix/Ruku and DVD). Kitchen has been redone with white cabinets, beautiful counter tops , the bathrooms are brand new. Our villa is off the beaten path for a true island getaway.
There is plenty to do and see on the Island. The beach is great to walk and bike on (very flat). This unique island offers an ever-changing shoreline, pristine 3½ mile beach, which is wide, very gradually sloping, with gentle Atlantic waters. The North Hampton condo complex has its private pool, and an elevator to ALL floors. (Most Fripp homes, and other condo buildings, have AT LEAST 1 flight of stairs, even if the building has an elevator). The villa is handicapped accessible, with limitations. Also, ease of entry/exit, via the elevator, is a big plus.
Guests may also enjoy additional oceanfront pools, to include a second pool close to our building - Ocean Point pool - near the beach access - (bring your Amenity Cards, to gain entry - available from owner); or, the mid-island Beach Club; and the south-end Cabana Club, with a heated pool/hot tub/kiddie pool/and lagoon pool with waterfalls and mist cave.
Other highlights include 2 highly rated championship golf courses (Ocean Point, steps from front door); miles of nature-filled bike trails; tennis; rentals of boats, kayaks, golf carts, mopeds, wave runners, and backwater skiffs; fishing and crabbing; dolphin cruises; ocean seining; Family Night with the Naturalist. Or, relax in a beach chair with a good book, and a tranquil and endless ocean view. Fripp has all you could wish for, to provide you with a safe family vacation, far from congestion and the typically busy lifestyle.
If you want to venture off of the island there are a variety of day trips. Go visit historic Beaufort, South Carolina just 19 miles away with all of its history and fine restaurants. Both Savannah and Charleston are easy day trips rich in history and beauty. Hilton Head is a little over an hour away for great factory outlet shopping.
If you and your family wish to enjoy a carefree, nature-plentiful vacation, on a low-key, island wildlife preserve, watching dolphins, seasonal tarpon, pelicans, and sea birds, directly in front of the balcony, you will definitely enjoy Fripp Island. This will be one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations your family will ever take. Enjoy quality time together while exploring this delightful area.

Condo was clean and well appointed. Nice view of the ocean.
Natalie was very accommodating. The condo was clean, spacious, and well appointed. Plenty of parking, neighbors were friendly. The condo grounds had obviously been damaged by the multiple hurricanes, so was a bit 'rough'. Overall, a nice getaway!
Thank you so much for your nice words. Very glad you enjoyed a nice getaway!
We’ve been coming since 2012 from Canada. No need to comment on the view. The condo is well-equipped. We were happy. The elevator & luggage carts make arrival, shopping & departure easy. Our grandson liked the Activity Centre on the island & the Kazoo Museum in town. We had great food @ The Breakwater, Wren, Plums, Sweetgrass on Dataw & Foolish Frog in Frogmore. Good breakfast @ The Grill across the parking lot. Happy Hour on Fri nights was fun. Natalie was very attentive. We booked with her for next yr @ her larger unit because we will have family visit.
Thank you Jim and Mary-Anne! It was a pleasure to have you and to meet you and your family. So glad you enjoyed your stay and looking forward to welcoming you again next year!
Monthly guests such as you give me a great opportunity to find out how everything is going and how amenities are holding up: I really appreciated your feedback and have taken all suggestions to heart and made some adjustments as necessary - we have a brand new washer/dryer set!. Always aiming for our guests to have the best vacation and experience. Thanks again and see you next year.
Best view on the island
We have been visiting Fripp Island since 1981. If you want an ocean front view as close to the water as possible, this is the place to stay. The building even has its own private pool which is rare for the island. For those who want to have a big breakfast you can literally walk across the street to the Ocean Golf Course and have breakfast made for you. Great location and value.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Its especially nice since you have much experience to compare to, having stayed on the island for so many years! Having Hugo's across the street IS a real treat! Although the villa is fully equipped to make anything you could possibly want, who wants to cook on vacation! :)
Thanks to hurricane Irma, our private pool is getting a complete makeover, and should be even better next season - truly a great asset in the summer when all the pools are packed.
We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
Our Winter Paradise
We loved our stay at North Hampton Villa. The second bedroom is small but our guests were surprised at the comfortable bed. The view is exceptional! Waking up to a glorious sunrise is a dream come true. The beach is wonderful to walk on, even our little dog loves it! Fripp Island is a terrific place to visit, even without the amenities card. We rented a golf cart from a company in Beaufort, they delivered it to us. Beaufort is a lovely town with lots of history to absorb. We hope to be able to return in the future!
Thank you so much, we are very glad you had a nice respite from the cold and enjoyed our piece of paradise on the ocean. We hope to welcome you again! Fripp is a wonderful place, we are always amazed at how much the landscape changes each season and every year. Thank you for the kind review and come back, anytime!
I have family on Fripp and have been coming my entire life, so I won't go on about how amazing Fripp is. Instead, I will talk about how amazing this property is. The private pool is amazing, and watching dolphins every day from the balcony just priceless. Absolutely a wonderful location, and Natalie is very responsive and accommodating! We may have family on the island, but hopefully Paradise Found will be where we stay from now on whenever we visit wonderful Fripp!
We love it when our guests are happy! It is truly a "secret gem"! Thanks for the great review. And know that return guests get a discount! See you next summer.
This was an amazing trip and my first time to Fripp. This property location is unbelievable. Woke up to ocean views every morning and every night I could not resist standing and watching the moon over the ocean from the balcony. I quite literally could throw a rock into the ocean from my balcony. The rooms are nice decorated and clean and the place is simply care free and easy.
I am so glad you enjoyed your time at Paradise Found! We do everything we can to make our guests' stays as enjoyable as possible and as a result many return!! The view is unbeatable and no matter how much I try with pictures, they can never convey how truly spectacular it is. So thank you for your comments, and please come back!
