About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful three bedroom, two and a half bath golf course house overlooks the sixteenth fairway and green of one of two golf courses on this 6000 acre private island off the coast of Beaufort, SC. Twelve years ago we purchased the house and completely renovated and redecorated it with new carpeting, paint, furniture, appliances,kitchen items and linens. We visit it often, and every year we continue to improve it for you and us to enjoy. This past year we removed the carpeting and installed hardwood floors in the entire house except the bedrooms. We completely remodeled the master bath area. It is now tiled with a walk in shower, a new vanity, mirrors, lighting, etc. As I write this we are also planning to redo the driveway and outside walkway.


Because we are Fripp Island Club members, our guests can enjoy the fine recreational facilities and programs available on Fripp Island. Privately owned, with access restricted to preserve the high standards you expect, the Fripp Island sports and dining amenities are designed to provide unparalleled satisfaction. You may purchase up to six amenity cards. Each card is $50 per week from Memorial Day to Labor Day or $35 during the off season.

**** GOLF CART ****

Most of our guests want to have a golf cart available. Some do not. We make a four passenger golf cart available to those who want it for an additional fee of $250 per week which is substantially less than is charged by the resort for a similar cart. ****************************************

**** WiFi and HDTV ****

We have installed wifi and an HDTV for the living room. Two bedrooms have their own standard cable connected televisions. The televisions are connected to DirecTV with HBO and Showtime and several other premium networks.

Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds, and the third has two twins. Among the other amenities you will find, we include two bicycles to help you explore our wonderful island. Although we have tried to think of everything to make your stay more enjoyable, we welcome any suggestions you may have to make your next stay with us more enjoyable.

Fripp Island is a private gated island off the coast of one of South Carolina’s most historic cities. The island features two championship golf courses, a tennis center, a beach club, numerous swimming pools with adjacent poolside bars, a marina, several restaurants, abundant wildlife, woods, marsh boardwalks and miles and miles of walkable beaches and nature trails. Included with your rental is the right of access to all of Fripp’s natural wonders.

The house has 1550 square feet of room plus a comfortably sized deck. The kitchen is large enough for more than one person to work in comfortably and has a small breakfast nook. The living room and the master bedroom have ten foot cathedral ceilings.

Sitting on the deck, you may watch golfers or white tail deer work their way along the championship course, wave to Al, one of the alligators who resides in the lagoon across the fairway and occasionally look off to your left for a glimpse of the ocean at the inlet between Fripp Island and the neighboring Hunting Island. The ocean inlet is approximately 400 yards away. The nearest beach is a leisurely stroll of about 800 yards.

Our home is filled with light and features casual, comfortable furniture, beach books and inviting spots for reading, and jigsaw puzzles. The living area's large, open floor plan allows the cooks among you to prepare a meal without missing the card game at the dining room table or the conversation in the living room.

Amenities: When you arrive, you'll find the beds all made up for you with towels and toiletries in each bathroom. Not your basic rental. Our home is a home-away-from home with a large well-equipped kitchen, with three TVs. The one in the living room is HD. with a VCR and a DVD player. The house also features wifi, a fireplace, air conditioning, cable television, coffee maker, large comfortable deck, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, full kitchen, microwave, telephone with free nation wide calling, two bicycles and a large charcoal kettle grill for grilling out.

A POST SCRIPT: Choosing a vacation home sight-unseen is always a challenge. We know because we did it too, every summer for 30 years. But more and more we kept coming back to Fripp Island. It suited our life style. Our goal is to help you decide if our home is right for you. So please don't hesitate to ask questions.

This is not a holiday home but a home filled with love and feelings that it belongs to someone. We have stayed at many places in the USA, but this is the best. A great vacation. Perhaps our home will be right for you.

We wish we could extend our invitation to your pets, we love our pets and always wanted to take ours along. But we have put a lot of work, love and money into making our home inviting and comfortable for us and our guests and we are concerned that ordinarily well mannered pets get nervous in new surroundings and accidents happen. So we have to ask that you not bring your pets. We also insist that you not smoke in our home.

About Rick or Peggy Ward

We had been renting at Fripp for nearly 30 years. In 2003 we saw this house, fell in love with it, bought it and have been working on making it perfect ever since.

Rick or Peggy Ward purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick or Peggy Ward chose Low Country & Resort Islands

We wanted a free standing house large enough to accomodate our small family, with a view of the water on the golf course. We had stayed at some of the Fairway Club homes in the past and really loved them. When we saw this house, we decided to not miss the opportunity.

What makes this house unique

Every day the deer walk by. We're on a first name basis with some of them! We have a pond across the fairway with wonderful ocean birds (including a bald eagle who comes by to fish once in a while), a few alligators, jumping fish and one of the world's great frog choruses. They would take their singing on tour, but they don't want to leave Fripp. Four hundred yards up the fairway, we can see the ocean where it comes into the inlet between Fripp and Hunting Island. Within a couple of hundred yards, the Audubon Club maintains a nature trail on the edge of one of the marshes.

Canceled due to weather.

Owner's Response: These guests, who have stayed with us before, had scheduled a two week stay in November. Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew decided to come for a visit just four days before their scheduled arrival. On November 12th, their arrival date, it was not even possible to get to Fripp because of downed trees and washed out roads. The guests contacted us a couple of days before the Hurricane struck and asked for advice. We told them that it didn't look good, and they should probably not make the long trip from Ohio to the coast. We offered to return their money or to reschedule them for the spring. They chose to reschedule for a three week stay in the spring. We look forward to their arrival in March.

Wonderful location and lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Rick & Peggy's house was our home-away-from-home! We loved the decor and layout of the house and especially the location. Being in "the jungle" but having the view of the fairway and ocean in the distance was amazing! They have thought of everything in the house. We drove 13 hrs to get here and didn't want to pack large suitcases, so having the washer & dryer was a big plus for the 6 of us to do laundry. We enjoyed waking up to the sunrise over the fairway and listening to the birds. The daily deer visits and frog songs were a delight. We didn't see "Al" in the pond, but that is ok with me. Can't wait for next year!

Like living in a Park !

  • 4 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our past 2 months staying here, truly like living in a park ! So quiet, lush surroundings, daily deer visits, alligators in the pond 100 ft from the house. The house itself is very comfortable, beautifully decorated in a seaside motif. Exploring the island by golf cart was very enjoyable, if we visit the island again, we would certainly come back and can recommend this rental. The owners Rick and Peggy were very responsive to any concerns we had and we thank them for sharing their home with us .

Another great year at Fripp!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This year at Fripp Island, we had a great time as usual! We enjoyed many experiences including, finding pretty sea shells, seeing a baby sea turtle at a sea turtle unnesting, holding snakes and a bearded dragon in the nature center above Camp Fripp, and climbing the lighthouse on the neighboring island of Hunting Island. The house offered a good distant view of the ocean and a quiet nighttime retreat. We had several sightings of an alligator across the golf course in a golf pond, had several visits from the deer, and enjoyed watching a Cardinal bathe in the garden fountain. With this being our second time staying in this house we would recommend it to others. Thank you for a Fripping good time!

Where do you live?

Spacious, comfortable, clean, great location and caring owners....

  • 5 of 5

We rented this nice home on the golf course for the month of March to get away from a Minnesota winter. Tired of Arizona an Florida we wanted to take our winter trip some place more interesting. The low country and adjoining historic towns of Charleston and Savannah along with lively Hilton Head Island and lovely Beaufort makes this location ideal for sightseers, history buffs, golfers, book and antique hounds and on and on. There is so much to do and see even four weeks weren't enough.

Owner's Response: These month long guests make a great point. It isn't just that we have a beautiful home in which we take pride or the variety of things to do on Fripp. Fripp is also wonderfully located in a historic and beautiful area. Located equidistance from Charleston and Savannah, the area offers a wealth of education while surrounded in low country beauty. We were delighted to have these wonderful guests, and we are very happy that they enjoyed, not only our house and Fripp, but that they took in the entire area.
