About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

...Talk about being right on the beach - only 100' from the stairs of our villa to the beach.The ocean looks like it is in your villa as you eat in our dining area or play cards at the game table in the living room. Our kitchen is fully-equipped and has Corian countertops. All the appliances are in great condition. Each bedroom has a full bath and two of the three bedrooms have excellent views of the ocean as well.

Fripp is an ecofriendly spot with loads of wildlife to view including all types of birds, roaming free deer,loggerhead turtle nestings, alligators, racoons and a great recreation/wildlife program for kids to enjoy and learn. Golfcarts are the most popular type of transportation on the island and of course is biking too since we have bike paths throughout the island.

Fripp Island is only three miles long so everything is close by. We have two golf courses, Ocean Creek being open just 20 years is a Davis Love signature course, and the other course called Ocean Point, is a true ocean/links type course . Both will test your skills, especially if the winds pick up.Ten tennis courts which are across the street from our villas;a great recreation program for the kids, rental golf carts, fishing boat rentals, and several pools make Fripp a family delight. Many people come to Fripp to just relax too. The city of Beaufort is just 19 miles away and offers a wide variety of things to see and do. Parris Island is nearby as well with its Marine museums and tours available.Hunting Island State Park is the next island and offers a lighthouse to climb and see the ocean views plus a great nature center. There is horseback riding available on St. Helena Island just 15 minutes away.

Sleeping setup is as follows:

* Bedroom #1 - Queen bed.

* Bedroom #2 - Queen bed.

* Bedroom #3 - four twin beds.

Why BOB HESS chose Low Country & Resort Islands

We actually bought our villa 20 years ago as our retirement home and after three years decided to purchase a home on Fripp and keep our villa as a rental unit.

What makes this condo unique

Our villa is located next door to an adult pool and a very large pool for adults and kids. Next door is the Beach Club area with a restaurant and a food court (ice cream too). The Sand Bar bar is there as well as the ocean view sports lounge, yet we are still secluded from all the activity. The tennis courts are across the street from our villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob- believe me, out trip from Washington state is always worth it and the two weeks went by so fast. Plan on us again for two more weeks. The weather was fabulous as usual and we never tire of sitting on the deck and taking in the ocean view.

Great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great for families. Tons of space and you have the ocean at your door with a swimming pool a few steps away. We loved seeing the deer come out in the evening in the courtyard. Everything you need is right there. The Hess's are very nice.

This was our first time to Fripp and I'm ready to go again! I will be back next year.

Thank you Bob and Barb Hess!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this Villa for the last two years for our spring break. We actually rent two units with 3 adults and 1 kid staying in the other unit and 3 adults and 4 kids in this unit. We have loved our two stays here. It feels like home. The unit the others stay in has never been the same because there has always been an issue with it. (It is rented through the island management company.) We have never had a problem and the owner always checks in to make sure there isn't a problem. Just got home today and can't wait to go back!

Our family stayed here the last week of October.

Weather was wonderful, perfect views, easy barefoot access to the best beach, best deck, best sunsets, and the

most comfortable condo with lots of room. Thanks for your attention to details. We will be back!

A wonderful setting to spend one's vacation. The location of this villa is perfect, for ocean views from upper bedroom and outside deck as well as for access to the beach, pool, event area. The villa is well kept and well supplied and accommodated our group of eight very comfortably. The owners were caring, helpful and available if needed. Even though we were here for a fall vacation there was still enough activities available to keep us busy and entertained--weather was phenomenal. I certainly would recommend this villa and hope to return.

The accomodations were wonderful and the owners most helpful and caring. The ocean could be easily accessed from the condo or you could just seat on the deck and look at the wonderful view of the ocean. The kitchen was well equipped which I find in most rentals as not being the case. It was a wonderful vacation and highly recommend the villa.

Great location and gorgeous view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

For the past 9 years my family and I have been visiting Fripp Island. We’ve stayed at this villa for about the past 7 years. The location is perfect - center island - right on the beach and within walking distance to the island's largest pool. The view of the ocean from the deck is spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked and the appliances are pretty new. The beds are comfortable. We see improvements in the villa every time we visit. We especially like the newly tiled bathroom shower. The owner is a pleasure to work with and very helpful. He lives on the island and either stops by or calls to make sure everything is OK. I would definitely recommend this well cared for property to others. My only caveat – the outside stairs for each villa in this complex are fairly pitched. You better eat your Wheaties to carry the luggage and groceries up. In my opinion the ocean view more than makes up for the stairs.
