Come and discover the relaxed lifestyle of Fripp Island, South Carolina! Fripp Island is truly one of the nation's best-kept golf and beach resort secrets. The island is a breathtaking example of beautiful, unspoiled South Carolina low country. It offers several miles of gorgeous beach, Audubon nature trails, two fabulous golf courses, restaurants, a marina, swimming pools, and playgrounds for the little ones. Leave your car at our cottage and walk, bike or ride our golf cart everywhere you need to go on the island. The freedom from vehicles and traffic will automatically reduce your blood pressure a few points the minute you take that first golf cart ride!
The charm and beauty of Beaufort is only 20-25 minutes away. Beaufort is packed with history, great restaurants, and a wide variety of shops. Beaufort was named Southern Living Magazine's 'Best Small Southern Town' of 2008. Field & Stream magazine has named Beaufort one of the top 25 fishing towns in America. American Style magazine just ranked Beaufort #12 on its 2009 list of the Top 25 Art Destinations-Small Cities category. In 2008, the editors of Money magazine named Beaufort one of its top 6 'Terrific Towns on the Water,' for soon-to-be-retired baby boomers.
Extensive renovations have just been completed on our Fripp Island home. We have brand new hardwood floors, new carpet, new granite kitchen countertops, and fresh paint throughout. The house is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath cottage on the 1st fairway of Davis Love III's first signature course, Ocean Creek. We have furnished and supplied the home to ensure that our guests will feel not just comfortable, but pampered. All of the beds have 100% cotton, 300 thread-count sheets. You will find plenty of thirsty, soft towels in each bathroom. We have stocked the kitchen with every cooking utensil and appliance we imagine you might need, plus a selection of spices to get you started.
If there is something you need while staying in the cottage that you do not find, let us know and we will try to supply if for your future visits. We want to make sure you enjoy and love our Fripp Island home just as much as we do!

About Amy Moorehead
Bryan and I had the privilege of living in coastal South Carolina early in our marriage when he was an officer in the Navy. The Navy and later corporate America have taken us to other areas of the country over the years, but we never stopped yearning for the South Carolina coast. We are thrilled to now have a second home in the beautiful low country!
Amy Moorehead purchased this House in 2009
Why Amy Moorehead chose Fripp Island
We have vacationed at beaches up and down the coasts of North and South Carolina as well as California and Maine. After all of that traveling, we knew that Fripp Island was our ideal beach the minute we first toured the island. It has unspoiled natural beauty and a gorgeous and wide beach. It is never crowded and the pace of life is slow and easy. The seafood is awesome and it's close to Beaufort, South Carolina which is a charming historic town.
What makes this House unique
I love the relaxed atmosphere at Fripp Island. You can get everywhere on the island by bike or golf cart. The beach is never crowded. There is a herd of adorable, friendly deer on the island. The island is very family and kid friendly, with numerous playgrounds and two large swimming pools. At the marina, you can rent a boat, scooter or golf cart or just sit and watch the dolphins swim by in Old House Creek.

I must start by saying that I have never written a review for anything but our experience with Amy and our visit to Fripp was so wonderful that it has prompted me to write my first! We enjoyed our stay on Fripp immensely. The house was clean and well maintained with a great floor plan. It was such a pleasure relaxing on the screen porch over looking the golf course or watching the deer. However, all those things were wonderful, but the real star of our vacation was Amy! Unfortunately the golf cart broke down early in our stay. I called Amy immediately and she was so kind and quick to respond! The golf cart service was promptly called and they came to repair it that afternoon. Sadly, it was not repairable so Amy arranged & paid for a rental cart for the remainder of our vacation...thank you Amy! We loved our time in this house so much we are planning another visit possibly in October and another one next summer! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us...we will definitely be back!
Just what we wanted!
The cottage was perfect for us. It was very spacious and well appointed. It had everything we needed and some things we hadn't realized we would have: such as the nightly view of the sunset over the golf course - beautiful! The entire Davis Love III Drive enclave is amazing. Everything in the cottage worked exceptionally well: Wifi, TV, all appliances and the golf cart is quick and well maintained. We will be back!
Exactly as described and more!
We loved this house! It was one of the most well stocked rentals we have ever stayed in. I appreciate the little things and this owner thought of everything. The beds were comfortable. There were fans in every room. Plenty of towels. We even found a crab net and tried our hand at crabbing. Very fun and we would highly recommend this activity! The porch was great for coffee in the mornings with no shortage of deer hanging around the yard. The location of this house was perfect. With the golf cart, you could be anywhere in minutes. The owner was great to work with and clearly takes pride in her home.
Great Cottage and Great Trip!
We had a wonderful time at Fripp over Labor Day weekend and this house did not disappoint! It was the perfect size allowing my 11 month old to have his own room and an open space to play. Everything was clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The screened in porch overlooking the golf course is very peaceful and a great place to read a book and watch all the deer. The location is perfect. Close to the beach and both pools and clubhouse. We walked every morning to explore the island and used the golf cart to transport everything to the beach. Loved our stay and the house. Look forward to coming back! Thanks Amy and family!
We love Fripp!
We loved our stay at Fripp ... the weather was perfect for the beach (hot and humid). You can take a short walk to the ocean if you wanted to, or use the golf cart (which we did every day). The cottage sits right off the golf course, and we were able to walk back after playing 18.
The cottage is perfectly situated, has a tv in every room (so the kids can go their separate way if they wanted to), and is nice and quiet. We had a great vacation and hope to return again some day ... thanks!
Amy, we truly enjoyed our stay at your lovely home at Fripp. The house was very clean and spacious and everything was there that we needed. We enjoyed the morning sunrises and the evening sunsets. This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the wonderful outdoors. Thank you for being so gracious and we look forward to returning again next year..
Peggy, thank you so much for the kind words. It was our pleasure to have you as a guest and we hope you will come back many times!
