Your ultimate vacation beach house starts with 2 ten foot wide porches, each equipped with rockers and hammocks. The front porch also has a swing and spectacular unobstructed views of the marsh and unrivaled marsh sunsets. We are fortunate to have the only Fripp home with full size porches viewing both the ocean and marsh sunsets.
The beachside porch has rockers, hammock, and a table for your morning coffee with sunrises for early risers, dining, etc. In season you will want to reach out and touch the shrimp boats and then go to the nearby docks for fresh seafood. The porch leads to an open deck seating area with shower, which in turn leads to the beach. At low tide, your 400ft wide beach extends north for 3 miles and south for 12 houses to a half mile sandbar and an inlet. The inlet fronts onto the adjacent undeveloped Prichards Island with two miles of pristene beaches for a more varied island beach experince. This island is accessible via kayak or boat and is devoted to sea turtle research. At mid tide, the beach is 200 ft wide and has a tidal pool for the little ones. At high tide, there is essentially no beach giving you time to rest in one of the 3 hammocks, explore the island, visit one of the islands six pools and other club amenities available to our guests with purchase of amenity cards. Amenities include two golf courses, ten tennis courts, six pools, children's camp, restaurants, cruises, gym, computer business center, equipment rental, shops, and more. Located to the north beyound the islands security gate and bridge is Hunting Island which includes a spectacular light house. Did we mention crabbing, surf fishing, guided creek and deep sea fishing?
The sunroom has a panoramic ocean view. It has a love seat and three chairs for reading, relaxing and visiting. There also is a game table for family fun plus a built in desk for computer/printers(WiFi) for those who want to keep in touch with the 'other world'. The living room includes 2 sofas plus 2 oversized arm chairs, TV, DVD, CD, fireplace and is open to the kitchen and dining areas. The open dining area has a large 10 seat dining table which combined with the kitchen counter bar and game table will accommodate everyone. The kitchen includes 2 refrigerators with ice machines, 2 ovens, one flat cook top, an island and plenty of open pantry storage. The kitchen is equipped with all modern appliances. Both porches, all bedrooms, L.R. and Sunroom have ceiling fans.The basement cook area includes a gas grill and burners-pots for shrimp and crab boils.
The bedrooms sleep 12 as follows:
Master Bedroom with spectacular ocean views- King with private full bath, TV, DVD,VCR, Sofa and doubles as the grandchildren's entertainment center when no one is napping.
Great grandmothers Private Hall Bedroom- Double bed, TV, and utilizes full hall bath equipped with hand bars for safe usage and can double as son-in-law sports viewing room.
Family Bedrooms #1 & #2- Each includes a double bed and a single bed, sleeping 3 each. Both share a private full shower bathroom.
Ground Level Bedroom- Two single beds with private full shower bath and TV is accessed from the kitchen area via an enclosed stairwell. This is ideal for teens, newlyweds and others seeking privacy. We have found that the adjacent slighly enlarged entrance way is an ideal quite place for the babys playpin(crib).
The house has recently been remodeled throughout. The front and ocean porches include child gates. The ground level stairwell is accessible from the garage for all weather access. Washers and dryers are located on the main living floor. The Master Bedroom is connected to the kitchen enabling the hostess to better serve her guests. SOMEBODY has to keep order in paradise.
The islands wildlife includes porpoises that patrol off the beach and can be intercepted via kayak, deer that are readily approached, sea turtles that require late night beach patrol and our favorite taking granchildren hunting alligators who should always be viewed from afar. The well supplied basement carrol includes 3 double sit-on-top kayaks and 1 child's kayak,life vest,crab supplies making for exceptional fun in the ocean, cannal, creeks, short trips to the adjacent island, visiting the amenity pools and sightseeing. Equipment rentals include golf cars, scooters, bicycles, boats, kayaks, jet skis, etc.
Sunday check out allows your weekend guests time to stay through Sunday morning. Off season rentals are generally arranged through Monday to give you even more flexibility for your guests whom can only get in a long weekend in paradise. Check in is 4pm and check out is 10am to allow adequate servicing time. Make your own schedule in the offseason to include ten day two full weekend stays,etc.

My family and I have been coming to Fripp Island now for 40 years. We decided to purchase a home in 1998 so that the children and grandchildren would be able to enjoy this unique family oriented island for years into the future.
Owner purchased this House in 1998

As always loved Fripp and the beach front home. So beachy.
Wonderful Week at Fripp
We have been staying in this home for over 20 years and it is the perfect vacation spot for our growing family. The beach house is very comfortable and inviting for oceanfront family fun. As our family has changed from singles, to marrieds, to small children to teenagers, it has met all of our needs. The house is spacious and comfortable. The porches and are fabulous and the views are unparalleled on the island. We are walking distance from the best spot on the entire island to watch the sun set over the marsh. This end of the island has built up recently and there is now plenty of beach at high tide, as evidenced by the fact that a turtle laid her nest in front of the house last night. I excitedly woke the sleeping teenagers so they could watch the turtle patrol dig up the nest literally in front of the house. By my count, there are now almost 20 nests between here and the Beach Club, with several within several hundred yards of the house. At low tide, there is plenty of beach for walking, playing, etc. This is truly the BEST end of the island, with ocean, marsh and sunset views.
I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable and family friendly beach house.
Glad to have them Again.
Next week more repeaters coming for tenth time.
Great Spring Break at Fripp
Had a great week at this fun beach house. Had several generations with us and it met the needs of all. The house is big enough that we weren't stepping over each other, yet we could all sit down at the big dining room table for dinner of fresh shrimp and crabs (vs having to send the kids to the kids table). The teenagers loved escaping down to the downstairs bedroom to get away from the adults!
I highly recommend this house for your family vacation. It reminds me of the beach houses I grew up going to - no oriental rugs or fancy artwork or furniture that you get worried about sitting on - it's okay for the kids to run in dripping wet after they have hosed the sand off their feet and are headed to the shower. It's a very livable beach house. Wish we could bring our dog but understand why owners don't allow that!
Can't wait for next Spring Break - we'll definitely be back after spending the last 4 - 5 Spring Breaks here.
Frippin' Out in October!
Great time at Fripp, as usual! We have stayed at this house several times and always love coming back! It is a great place to "get away" and still feel at home. This beach house is comfortable, spacious, and only steps away from the ocean! We especially enjoy having the kayaks and the golf cart to use during our stay. The kitchen has everything you need for a large group, and the downstairs cooking area is perfect for preparing the local shrimp and oysters! The desk area in the sunroom turned into my husband's office on this trip so he could work and play! We love the front and back porches-hammocks are everywhere! This is "going to the beach" like you have never experienced it before. Thank you for sharing your special beach house!
Great location, great floor plan, great porches with great views. Needs updating. And needs thorough cleaning inside and outside. Some basics like dishwasher detergent, trash bags not provided. Bicycles provided but not useable.
