Affordable Gem - Best View - Fripp Island Guest House

Bedrooms Studio
Space 600 sq. ft.
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The GUEST HOUSE has the feel of an efficiency with a bedroom/living area and kitchenette combined in a one-room open plan. The separate bathroom/shower is newly updated. Newly redecorated as well, the guest house is light and airy with a nautical feel about it. The large deck attached contributes to a feeling of spaciousness. All furniture within the guest house is new, comfortable and casual. It includes a love seat, coffee table, end table and lamp in the living room, a queen size bed with two end tables and two lamps for reading, and a large dresser in the sleeping area. Sink, stove, oven, a small refrigerator with pots, pans, dishes and eating utensils in the kitchenette are available to make a quick breakfast or a full dinner served in the living area or on the deck.

Golf Cart - If you have one, bring it! Golf cars are driven anywhere and everywhere on the island. A great way to get around to the beaches, shopping areas, Forest Gump filming sites, docks, restaurants and more.

The property sits on a peninsula which extends into Fripp Island's most expansive marsh. The marsh basin fills with tidal waters and can appear like a lake right outside the home. Dolphins can be seen from the house especially during high tide. Plan to experience absolute peace and solitude with only the sounds of osprey and herons. The view offered is 180 degrees with amazing vistas of wildlife, the marina and Old House Creek. With western exposure the vistas (and sunsets)are beyond description.

A visit to the GUEST HOUSE will be memorable long after leaving Fripp Island.

About J. Teppen

My husband and I are international school educators and have lived overseas for the past 20 years. We are now living in Minnesota and hope to retire to Fripp at some point. Until then we have decided to open our Guest House to Fripp visitors. Thank you, in advance, for caring for our home.

J. Teppen purchased this bungalow in 1998

Why J. Teppen chose Fripp Island

Fripp Island is an idyllic place to live or vacation. Fripp offers beautiful seashore and vast low country marshes and upscale realty with an environmental preservation ethic. Fripp Island exists in a part of the country that has low country charm and history. It provides quietude, peace and beauty to its visitors.

What makes this bungalow unique

Reasonably priced rent compared to all other properties on Fripp Island, Atlantic Ocean 3-mile beach, Audubon trails, crabbing docks, bird watching, dolphin viewing, Hunting Island State Park nearby. Relaxing and serene getaway.

The Guest House is perfect for two people. We have had honeymooners and welcomed others on their anniversary. It's a romantic getaway for two or it offers quiet solitude for a single guest looking for a peaceful time-out. What we love most about the Guest House location ... morning walks, viewing and hearing birds day and night, the crabbing dock nearby, sitting on the patio and viewing a starlit evening and waking to a 180 degree panoramic view of the marsh. The Guest House, itself, is newly remodeled. It has a nautical theme and is fresh, clean and spacious for two people. All your linens and bedding are supplied as well everything you'd need in a kitchen. Economically, it is the best place you will find on the island for two people. We'd love to have you visit!

The title says it all. If you desire a marsh view with all the natural beauty then this is where you want to be on Fripp Island. We actually were able to see the Milky Way becuse the air was so clear. The last time I saw a Milky Way was on the candy shelf at Walmart. The cottage is perfect for a couple wanting to get away to a very quiet area. Day visits to local areas like Beaufort are a short drive away. Our only concern was the bathroom was a bit small but the view and location make up for that concern. Joan, the owner is very easy to contact and is very helpful and considerate. We will be returning. Robin & Kathy

The carpet could use a little updating. It was perfect for a couple, and the view was amazing.
