Wildlife is abundant all around the island - alligators, birds, deer. Fripp has walking and biking trails all over the island. There are playgrounds for children and many places to fish and crab. Fripp is the most relaxing experience you can have. You will never want to go back across the bridge. Come and make wonderful memories. It does not get any better than Fripp Island!

Living just a few miles from Fripp in Beaufort, South Carolina, we are here to make your vacation a wonderful experience. Please do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns. Our only wish is for you to fall in love with Fripp just the way we have.

Lisa Presnell and/or Laotha Carswell purchased this villa in 2010

Why Lisa Presnell and/or Laotha Carswell chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Growing up I traveled to Fripp Island with my parents, family, and friends. Many wonderful memories were made every visit. In the fall of 2010, my parents and I had the great opportunity to purchase our own piece of Fripp. We spent the fall and winter of 2010 and 2011 renovating the downstairs and then in 2013 we renovated the upstairs adding a private bath to each bedroom.

This is our home away from home. We hope you will come to love it just as much as we do!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Great location on the island, lots of space, great bathrooms, really nice pool, beach just a short walk away, and an owner that makes sure everything is just right. Did I mention the golf cart? My wife and I used the golf cart all the time. What a bonus having that to drive around. We highly recommend this property for your next visit to Fripp.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

This John Fripp Villa was very nicely renovated. Everything we needed was there including a plethora of sand toys, beach towels, and a few beach chairs. This fit our family's needs well since the second bedroom has a double bunk bed and twin bed and we have 5 children! The patio outside the villa was lovely although it had its fair share of flies. We especially appreciated the door leading out to the patio because it was easy for our children to open unlike most sliders we've had in other villas. All being said, we thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful villa.

Great Place to Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Fripp Island very much. Quick access to the pool and beach is just what we needed for our special needs daughter. The use of a golf cart to go sight seeing was also nice. The one complaint that we had was the lack of available resources for dining on the island. We did not have an amenities card and were not made aware by the owner that we would need one to eat on the island. Thank goodness we had brought a lot of food with us since the owner never called us back in regards to getting us access to a card and did not respond to our emails prior to our arrival pertaining to where to buy food, etc. We couldn't have asked for better weather and loved the deer! The property was very clean and well maintained and we would recommend it to a family with young kids that enjoy cooking their meals on the grill. Just hope that you get a clean grill......ours was not! :o)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for renting our condo. Please know we make it very clear in our VRBO listing we do not have amenity cards, and in our letter to all renters include a summary of all food resources (grocery stores and restaurants) close by the island. It is our goal to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Again, we are so very sorry the lack of amenity cards impacted your vacation, but we simply have no access to them and could not obtain cards for you and your family even though we tried our hardest. I'll make sure housekeeping knows to clean the grill. Thanks so much for letting us know it was dirty! We hope you will join us again next year!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here with my husband and another couple (our friends, obviously). Everything was perfect. Great condition, loved the pool and beach, very clean, golf cart was so much fun, cooked a ton and there was plenty of kitchenware. My only gripe I thought I should add for future renters is that the one DVD player is in a bedroom with bunk beds. It is a bit of an awkward set up to watch a movie and obviously not useable for two couples or a family to watch together. It is also not movable as it is inside the wall mounted TV, so we could not bring it downstairs to use in the living room with the large TV. We had all packed several movies to watch together at night, so we were disappointed. I would add one to the living room or be more specific in the listing.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback - it's from feedback like yours that we can make our condo even better for future renters. I will update the listing info this evening. So very glad you enjoyed the condition and location of our condo! Thanks so much for renting. Hope to see you again next summer!
