Contact manager with questions!

Great news we have installed an elevator in our home! Children are not allowed to play in elevator!

We have the most awesome panoramic view of Blue Heron Lake, the Marsh, Lagoon and Fripp ocean inlet from our wraparound deck at our home located at 126 Sandpiper Run. I never tire of observing the wildlife around our home. The Great Blue Heron roosting within 20’ from the deck, snowy white egrets fishing on the lake, deer walking through the marsh, and ducks paddling in the lagoon. Breathtaking sunsets and endless photo opportunities! Just a very short walk or drive to the beach, golf courses, tennis club and pools.

Our large 4BR (4th loft BR) custom designed house was designed to include two connected octagonal Pods (EyePods). The large Master Bedroom is located in the second Pod with a King sized bed and a 32” flat screen TV . The Master Bathroom is to die for! Not only did we install a Jacuzzi tub, but an unforgettable walk-in body spa that is hard to leave once you walk in. This Pod also has a very comfortable Guest Bedroom with a Queen sized bed, full bath and 26' flat screen TV. The utility room is also in the Second Pod. The washer and dryer are located here. In the first Pod, there is a 600 SF Loft with two Queen size beds and a half bath. The Loft also has a 39” flat screen TV with a full motion arm mounted on the wall. Inside the closet you will find the DVD/VCR. Open the door and insert your disk. There is an eye on bottom of TV that will read the remote. There is another Guest Bedroom with a Queen sized bed, full bathroom and a 26' flat screen TV. All TV have a full motion arm mounted to the wall.

Wait until you see the Great Room. Windows are everywhere, with a 23’ high ceiling. Totally awesome. If you need to kick back and have a lazy evening, there is a 32” LCD/HDTV. Cable/DVD and Hi-speed wireless broadband access available.

The first Pod also houses a spacious and well equipped state of the art kitchen. If you love seafood, try out the steamer for succulent shrimp and crab legs. There is also a remarkable double door sub-zero freezer and refrigerator. We never have to worry about filling the cooler with ice, because one of the two ice makers will put out 20# of ice per day for that hot trip to the beach.

Another half bath is conveniently located near the wrap-around deck.


Boogie Boards and other beach items included.

New flat screen TVs in all rooms.

Two golf carts included free of charge with all stays. One cart has a speed package please be careful when using them.

About Janice Crenshaw, owner

Mary Stivers and Janice Crenshaw have been visiting Fripp Island for over 20 Years. Each year we would look for that perfect spot to build a home. This lot was already owned by another couple that decided not to build. The rest is history!

We own Footworks Inc. in St. Matthews KY. We have been in business for over 32 years.

We love nature Fripp Island is full of bird life, deer and all kinds of critters. We love feeding the deer carrots they come right up and eat out of your hands.

Janice Crenshaw, owner purchased this house in 2006

Why Janice Crenshaw, owner chose Fripp Island

Our home is unique in design. We did not buy we built this house. Two large octagons connected by a foyer. Windows everywhere. Our home was completed in 2006.

Our deck is quite large, lots of space.

What makes this house unique

Our home has an open floor plan. Many windows lets you see how beautiful Blue Heron Lake, the marsh, an the ocean inlet. The built-in steamer is a joy. The master walk-in shower is amazing.

New elevator!!!!!!

Sub-Zero makes lots of ice and the Ice machine will make an additional 20 lbs of ice daily for those trips to the beach.

Wine cooler is also available, please just plug it in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home. Two families stayed there comfortably. We enjoyed the wildlife and the kids really enjoyed seeing the deer. The island and the house was a nice place to visit. We enjoyed it so much we will be back some day.

Absolutely amazing.

To sum it up, my wife said it was the best vacation house ever. The owners put a lot of love and care in this house and it shows. We will definitely be back and actually tried but the weekend we wanted was already spoken for.

We loved this home and our week on Fripp!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for 3 families... lots of space! Well-stocked kitchen with room to cook and entertain. Loved the elevator for elderly parents and moving in! Fabulous deck with beautiful views to enjoy morning coffee and evening cocktails. Golf carts and wagon were perfect for getting to the beach every day. Easy, relaxing week!

Perfect for families with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time!! The house is so unique-- even though the other houses are close by, you feel very secluded. The view is so peaceful. We loved having the golf carts as the main mode of transportation and all of the island activities were perfect for our three kids. All of the grown ups kept saying that this was our favorite beach trip yet. We will certainly return!!

Another Wonderful year!

  • 5 of 5

Consistently a wonderful place to stay for our 10 family members. Always clean, a beautiful location, and all the things we need to cook meals and be comfortable. Those are just some of the reasons we chose to stay here every year. Janice is also very friendly and makes sure you are happy. If anything unexpected happens, she gets it taken care of right away and without disrupting your vacation. We hope to continue to use this property for many years to come.
