About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Six amenity cards available.



Our condo has great views of the ocean and also has a beautiful garden setting. We are across the street from the club house of Ocean Point Golf Course. Walk to the driving range and practice your game. Some of the best fishing in Beaufort is at the groan nest to Newhaven.

Fripp Island is a 3000 acre private, gate island 19 miles outside of Beaufort, South Carolina. This island has three and a half miles of beach, with two golf courses. One course is an oceanfront golf course. The second course is an award winning Davis Love III Golf Course with a beautiful marsh setting. There are ten tennis court. The island boasts miles of scenic bike paths, a fitness center, and Camp Fripp, a children's recreation activity center.

The marina has a great boat landing and ample moorage. Several artificial fishing reefs are from one and a half to nine miles off shore and offer excellent fishing. The marina is on a large tidal creek that opens to a vast expanse of estuaries with some of the best fishing, crabbing, and shrimping of the East Coast.

The beauty of the island has enticed movie makers repeatedly to the Island. Forrest Gump, Jungle Book, and the Prince of Tides were all filmed on Fripp.

About Dave & Wylene Martin

We are Dave & Wylene Martin. We live in Charleston, SC. I am a retired HS coach and administrator and my wife is a retired second grade school teacher. We enjoy golf, working out and being at Fripp. We have two children, Tradd who owns "Househunter," a real-estate company in Columbia, and Brooke who is an international flight attendant.

Why Dave & Wylene Martin chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Fripp is a special place. Living in Charleston we could be at Kiawah, Wild Dunes, etc. However, Fripp is worth the extra hour and a half drive. We expecially like the people and the laid back life style Fripp provides

What makes this condo unique

Once we arrive at Fripp, we find it hard to leave the island, even to go shopping. However, we do have to go off the island to Boondocks Restaurant at least once a week. Everything that we ever wanted in our retirement is at Fripp, golf, beach, beautiful surroundings, boating and great bike and walking trails. It is our paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter, grandson, and myself spent a wonderful week in your condo. The unit was clean and nicely furnished. The pool was great and the ocean view was wonderful.

We had a wonderful stay in this unit; Mr Martin was quite helpful and reassured us if we had any issues, not to hesitate to call him. We will definitely rent again!

Gracious & Accomodating Owners. Fantastic Condo!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't begin to express our gratitude to you and Mrs. Martin for trusting us with your wonderful condo. Such a great location, view, and all the extras inside. Fully furnished to our needs for cooking in 90% of our week. Plenty of dishes, flatware, pots/pans, etc... Look forward to staying again very soon and wonderful to know we don't need any other home on the island but yours. Rent his golf cart as its fully operational with no problems and much less than renting from the marina. Thanks again!!!!

So Roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five found this rental to be lovely and spacious. Most condos of this size would be much more expensive. The three beds in the second bedroom were perfect for our three teenage sons.

The Martins were extremely helpful throughout the renting process and to offer us advice and suggestions- especially on great restaurants. We particularly enjoyed Boondock's and Johnson Creek Tavern.

Traveling around the island via the Martins' golf cart was a highlight! We saw lots of wildlife while exploring during the week, including alligators.

Fantastic Week at Fripp!

  • 5 of 5

The Martins are the best hosts on the island! Throughout the rental process, they offered island tips and were most hospitable. The condo was perfection and is located on beautiful grounds. We have fallen in love with Fripp and have now deemed this our favorite family destination. We cannot wait to return and will undoubtedly rent this condo again! Make sure to rent their golf cart as the ones rented through the island are rather slow. You don't want to miss this gem of a rental, what a wonderful value!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful first time vacation on Fripp Island in this fully stocked, comfortable condo! Owner came to help me settle in, even took me on a golf cart tour of the island to show me how to run and store the vehicle. Thank you again for your personal attention, Mr. Martin! This was the first rental in many years that had better cookware than I have at home, and I didn't need half the supplies I am used to taking on vacation as they were all supplied.

God willing, I will return!

Spectacular Stay During the Fourth of July

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Fripp Island during the week of the 4th of July. The condo was cozy, well-furnished, and affordable. There was plenty of space for our family. Anything we needed from games, pots and pans, linens, etc were provided. The owners really made us feel special and comfortable during our stay. We enjoyed the convenient location as well as using the golf cart to get to the many pools. The golf cart was a lot of fun. The kids enjoyed having their dad drive them all around the island. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with.Thank you, Dave, for all of your suggestions for restaurants, places to visit, and just general info about the island. It was very much appreciated having a washer and dryer in the condo, too. Any questions we had were quickly answered by Dave and Wylene. We even received a phone call to see how things were going. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. We enjoyed the amazing 4th of July golf cart parade, seeing the alligator sun itself by the marsh, shelling, nature walks, tennis, tie-dying and so much more. The island offered so many activities that we never had a dull moment. Even our teenagers had a wonderful time! The ocean was breath-taking. The views were amazing from the complex. It was truly one of our best vacations ever! If you are looking for a wonderful and relaxing place to stay, look no further. You won't be disappointed!
