Flip Flop Zone, located at Captain John Fripp Villa 102, is just what your next vacation needs! This property has the best beach on the island just outside your back door, the most amazing ocean views the island has to offer, and a cozy place to lay your head at the end of that long day at the beach. Step inside and immediately feel at home. This upstairs, corner unit gives you ocean views from the living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. There is ample room for everyone, offering accommodations for up to five family members and friends.
The Master bedroom is up a spiral staircase and has a king bed with a small private bath. Downstairs, we have a bedroom facing the street with a queen and a single with a private bath. We've included all the amenities of home such as a fully-equipped kitchen with the requisite small appliances, cable TV, DVD player, and WIFI. We even provide a small library of good vacation reads in case you left yours on the mainland!
This upstairs unit is located at the center of the island, next door to The Beach Club. You can walk to the adult pool, the children's pool, the Food Court (Starbucks, pizza, ice cream, etc.), Ocean view Bar, the Sand Bar (outdoor bar by the beach), fitness center, club office, and tennis courts. Have a small siesta on the deck where you can gas grill while listening to the sounds of the ocean. The beach at Captain John Fripp Villas is available 24/7.
On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 feet. At low tide, you will find that you walk out about 300 yards to get to the ocean. Currently, there is a large tidal pool, which is a great place for small children to play. Tidal pools occur at low tide when as the water retreats, leaving water behind.
Fripp is a private island and nature preserve with a sophisticated variety of amenities. Choose from the offerings of the island's two, 18-hole championship golf courses, 10-court racket club, full service marina, multiple dining and shopping opportunities, and more (with purchase of guest cards). Relax by one of the seven pools on the island, charter a fishing boat, rent a bike, moped, or golf cart to venture around the island or view the wildlife, or enter a fishing, golf, or tennis tournament.
