About Mike Conroy

I am a retired state employee who has lived in Columbia, SC since 1970. My wife has taught elementary school for 41 years. I currently sell real estate with Exit, Real Estate Solutions in Columbia, SC. We have been coming to Fripp Island since 1974 and purchased a condo in 1991. The condo was sold in 1999 so we could purchase this marsh front home. Our membership to Fripp Island resort allows our guest to purchase amenity cards so they can have access to the island pools, golf courses, tennis courts, marina, and other amenities offered throughout the island.

Mike Conroy purchased this house in 1999

Why Mike Conroy chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Beaufort is located in the lowcountry of SC and has been featured in numerous films such as Forest Gump, Prince of Tides, The Water is Wide, The Great Santini, Jungle Book, and The Big Chill. Fripp Island is a private, secure resort with 3 miles of beach, 2 golf courses, bike paths, marina access, pools, and tennis center.

I have family in Beaufort and plan to eventually move and retire to Fripp Island.

What makes this house unique

Fripp Island is located next to Hunting Island State Park featuring a lighthouse, beach, and fishing bridge. The town of Beaufort is near Charleston, Hilton Head, SC, and Savannah, Ga. Fripp Island is a wildlife preserve where passive viewing of the animals is a favorite pasttime. Animals that you are likely to see include aligators, deer, raccoons, otters, blue herons, brown pelicans, and many other animals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have owned 2 condos and 1 house on Fripp Island since 1991.

This is the first time I have not had a management company do the renting. I decided to try the VRBO site and manage the rentals myself. I have been a club member since 1991 and am able to offer amenity cards to renters to access island pools, resteurants, golf courses, bars, tennis courts, and special events. Please feel free to call with any questions at 803-603-0262.

We loved this property. The view was awesome to wake up to and the sunsets were gorgeous. Loved all the wildlife and the property had plenty of room for our big group. We would most definitely stay here again.

My family and I have been vacationing on Fripp for approximately 35 years. We've rented many homes on Fripp, some very nice and some not so nice. Mike's home was very well equipped, clean, and the layout was great for families. My family enjoyed all aspects of this home including the great patio and marsh views. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this home. Its a keeper. Thanks Mike!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Fripp for several years, and have been in different houses on different parts of the island. This house was the best. Offered easy access to the beach, pools, marsh, and marina. The house has a great layout for families. We'll be back next year.

Always a Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we booked this property for our family beach week and we will continue to book it for our family beach vacation! Mike is an absolute pleasure to deal with-he is so accommodating! The home is so lovely and comfortable and relaxing and it's so nice that they stock the home with convenient items! The marsh location is great and a quick golf cart ride to the nearest beach access. We love this house and highly recommend it! You will not be disappointed! Thank you, Mike!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Mikes home is absulutly beautiful and with one of the best views on the whole island. Everything you need is there for your enjoyment, very well stocked home. We really enjoyed watching the racoon play in the fountain on back deck and interacting with the deer that bedded in back yard everynight. Very relaxing home!

Thanks Mike.
