Captain John Fripp Villa #106 - 4BR/4BA Oceanfront!

Bedrooms 4
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)

We are excited to be the owners of this completely renovated oceanfront 4 BR/4 BA condo on Fripp Island! This unit is in phase three of the Capt. John Fripp Villas which is centrally and conveniently located next to the Beach Club complex with an Olympic Pool/Kiddie Pool and a separate adult pool with an ocean side bar.

In January of 2014 we underwent a complete and total renovation - down to the studs - to provide more updated and comfortable accommodations. Our renovation added a den upstairs and replaced the spiral stairs with a conventional staircase. In the previous year, we replaced most of the furniture and all bedding (mattresses, mattress pads, pillows, comforter sets), sheets and towels. As part of our renovation, we had our villa professionally decorated with mirrors, pictures and curtains/shades.

This 4 Bedroom/4 Bath villa has a nonsmoking and no pet policy for the comfort of all guests.

On the main level, there is a living room and reading nook to accommodate your family and friends where an HDTV with VCR/DVD is provided for your entertainment.

You will also find two oceanfront bedrooms, on the main level, with king size beds and full bathrooms! The master bedroom has a walk in shower and a private balcony overlooking the ocean. Both bedrooms have TVs and DVD players. The main level also has another guest bedroom with two twin beds, TV and a connecting full bath.

The upstairs has an oceanfront bedroom with two Queen beds and a sitting area. There is also a full bath with walk in shower and a newly built den with HDTV and DVD player upstairs.

Our open concept kitchen includes all cookware, dishes and glassware along with all new stainless steel appliances - gas range and oven, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator (w/ice maker). A brand new washer and dryer are also located inside the villa for your convenience.

WIRELESS INTERNET service is available inside the condo for unlimited users! A gas grill is provided on the back deck facing the parking lot.

We think you will enjoy our newly renovated condo with incredibly beautiful oceanfront views of the beach. The beach is plentiful with sand dunes and sea oats and is conveniently located just steps away from our back door!

About Lee Foster

We are Jim, Lee and Breland Foster from Greenville, South Carolina. Our daughter, Breland, had her first beach experience on Fripp at the age of 18 months. Lee first started visiting Fripp when she was 8 years old on vacations with her family. The island was much less established during that time to the degree that she remembers riding horses on the beach with her sister and cousins! Since that time, Lee has visited , on occasion, with college friends from Furman. Jim also began visiting Fripp earlier in his life, during his colllege years at USC, and afterwards in his young adult years. Fripp has been a part of our lives for a long time and we hope it continues to be a place of joy and relaxation with friends and family!

Lee Foster purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lee Foster chose Fripp Island

We chose Fripp Island as our vacation home location because of its beautiful low country setting that is a natural, quiet, noncommercial and unhurried atmosphere. We love the uncrowded and quiet beach most of all. It is also fascinating to watch the beach change throughout the seasons and years because, as a barrier island, it changes frequently. We also enjoy the beautiful golf courses, the naturalist programs and the other amenities the Club has to offer. Most of all, we have a lot of fun with our 'Fripp Friends', who are families that also own condos in our complex, from Columbia, SC, Atlanta, GA, Laurens, SC, Greenville, SC, Ohio, etc. that we only see at Fripp when we happen to be visiting at the same time!

What makes this condo unique

We chose to buy this condo in Phase III of the Capt. John Fripp villa because it is oceanfront with views down the beach as far as you can see! We also have another unit in this complex which we bought 9 years ago. It is a 3BR/2BA condo on the ground floor (VRBO #21944). The courtyard makes for a beautiful and fun area to socialize and to keep an eye on the kids while they enjoy playing. We also like the centralized location and walking distance access to the Tennis Club, the Beach Club, the Olympic Pool, the Fitness Center, the Adult Pool, the Sandbar, the Food Court and the Fripp Ship!

Wonderful Christmas Break

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at Fripp for a number of years - we will be putting this rental at the top of our favorites list. Perfect location! Wonderful views of the ocean; we could sit at the kitchen table enjoying coffee or a meal and watch the waves. This unit has been designed (& beautifully refurbished) to make excellent usage of the space. We loved all the seating (plenty of chairs on the deck!). It was only a few steps off the deck to the beach walkway. Everything was neat and clean!; kitchen well stocked. There are steps to get into the condo (it's on the 2nd/3rd floors) which make the views ideal. There is a spiral stair from the deck to the grassy yard & beach path. Owners were very quick to respond to questions and refund deposit. We will be back & we highly recommend this condo for anyone looking for a special place at the beach!

Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Fripp for years and booked this villa while we were down for our wedding this year. This is by far the nicest rental we have stayed at. The views are amazing, the beds and furniture are very comfortable, and the entire villa is decorated beautifully. There was plenty of room, and all of our guests commented how they want to book this unit during their future vacations. We will definitely be back!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we take a family vacation with my parents and my brother's family. There are 6 adults and 4 children 13, 9, 7, and 5. The youngest three are boys so the open courtyard came in really handy! The condo was absolutely amazing! The colors and decorations used in this condo make you feel like you are in a fancy resort. There were plenty of comfy places to sit and relax as well as a huge kitchen table for family dinners. We cooked every night in the very well equipped kitchen. We have been staying in condos for years and we have never stayed in one that was as stocked as this one. Tons of pots and pans, silverware, knifes, cooking utensils. You name it they had it!. The way the condo is set up is perfect for multiple families. We did not feel like we were on top of each other at all. There are nice size TV's in every room making it very easy to relax by yourself if you are not feeling the rest of the group. I also loved the sitting room upstairs, this is perfect for the kids. The deck is amazing too as well as the location of the condo! We loved riding the golf cart in the evening and of course getting ice cream(this is a must). Fripp Island is a one of the kind place. It is very family oriented. I loved seeing all the kids riding bikes or golf carts. It was amazing to see all the kids disconnected from their cell phones and enjoying life. My mother says Fripp is like going back in time!! The owners were very easy to deal with. They answered any question I had and were eager to help in any way. We will definitely be coming back to Fripp! Oh yea the beach and the pools were great too! We got to see the turtle eggs hatch. It was amazing!

Another great week with our adult children, their spouses, and granddaughters

  • 5 of 5

Our two adult children, their spouses, and four granddaughters enjoyed this condo so much in 2014, that we returned again this summer over the 4th of July. (See previous review.) The 4th of July Parade was more impressive than we expected. We watched the fireworks from the boardwalk to the beach. With a well equipped kitchen, our children and their families could save money by preparing most evening meal at the condo. All three families prepared one evening meal. My wife and I provided a dinner of Frogmore Stew (a local low-country meal--check out this link: ). Our granddaughters, now 11, 12, 14, and 15, balanced their time at the beach and the family pool. The granddaughters loved to pose for many picture with beautiful backdrops. My wife and I spent a great deal of time at the adult pool. Both pools are in close walking distance. Our total crew returned to the Steamer Oyster & Steakhouse on Lady's Island for one evening meal. The Steamer has been one of our traditions for 24 years. This year my wife and I brought our bicycles, but the heat and humidity were a bit too much. Late spring or early fall would be a better time for biking; however, it is a great way to explore the island. We did ride 14.4 miles one day. The owners are great to work with and that was a major factor in returning this year. My wife and I will return next summer with three other couples who are close relatives and are also experienced Frippers.

Created Memories for Our Granddaughters

  • 5 of 5

Starting in 1992, my wife and I have vacationed many times at Fripp Island. We stayed in this condo in 2002. The renovations by the current owners are simply outstanding. We hosted our son and daughter, their spouses, and our four granddaughters ages 9, 10, 12 and 13. Our goal was to create memories for the granddaughters. Fripp Island and this condo provided the place and the magic to achieve that goal. This condo is the best that we have stayed in over the years and was just as it was advertised. The granddaughters loved the beach and had little interest in the swimming pools--they told us we can go to the pool back home. One day we rented a six passenger golf cart and toured the Island with our granddaughters, which included, the Activity Center, looking for alligators, lunch, ice cream, and swimming in two different pools. The well equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare many family meals in the condo, which included a traditional shrimp boil dinner. Our son-in-law practiced soccer with the granddaughter on the large grassy area next to the condo. We will be back and would recommend this unit to family and friends. The property owners were great to work with.
