About the property

Lodging 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

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.

There are 2 Guest Amenity Cards included in your reservation for stays of 7 days or more. You have the option of purchasing additional Guest Amenity Cards, which grant access to Fripp Island amenities such as golf, tennis, restaurants, swimming pools and more. Cards must be purchased through Natural Retreats prior to arrival.

As our gift to you for booking with us, we offer free admission to select Sea Islands and Beaufort attractions. Called the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like the Kazoo Factory, the Escape Room and a free kayak rental. It’s our way of saying, “Thanks!”

Please note that guests must be at least 21 years of age to rent this property.

Great view outside dirty furniture inside

  • 3 of 5

The fact that this property is ocean front is the deal sealer for me ...the only thing that really bothered me about this condo and this is the third John fripp villa I have stayed in, is how dirty the furniture is from the couches to the dining room table and chairs...the couch was very cute but so dingy and dirty we put sheets over it to be okay to lay or sit on it ... the dining room chairs were so dirty you could actually scrape your nail on it and see the crud...under the recliner were pretzels and cheezits from other renters and the carpet was stained and tattered at the doorways and just not clean...this is a wonderful view and setting but the dining room table couches and the carpet needs replaced for sure...we love fripp and will certainly go back again...I give it three stars bc the view is wonderful!!!

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you felt the furniture was dingy and unclean. We have cleaned the couches and carpets very recently. We agree that they are showing age and we are pursuing replacement of the couches as well as the carpet. We are working with the homeowner to replace these items when we have a few vacant days. We do apologize for the food found under the recliner. We have spoken to our housekeeper regarding this issue and she assures us that she will be checking under the furniture better in the future. This condo is not a luxury accommodation but it is nice and the location cannot be beat. Flip flop zone is great for families with children because of it’s durable furnishings. It comes with two free amenity cards when you book 7 nights or more so it’s really a great choice when staying on Fripp Island. One other thing that makes this place great for families is the closet full of boogie boards and other beach toys.

The best location on Fripp!

  • 5 of 5

Counting down the days to come back to this wonderful home! We loved our stay. Home was exactly what we expected. The house was clean and the beds were so comfortable (memory foam mattress king upstairs made for wonderful sleeping after a day on the beach)! This is a great end unit so you are close to the pool without having the pool noise or really the noise from other Villas. My son loved the large lawn area- there were lots of other children playing and visiting deer. We enjoyed the new grill every night- I challenge you to find a better view than dinner on this deck!! If you have a small family this is the perfect spot to enjoy the beach!

Vast, sandy beaches, dramatic tidal changes, and rich history await on the Sea Islands of South Carolina.

This collection of peaceful islands, located a short drive from historic Beaufort, are full of beauty and culture, an ideal beach getaway for visitors of all ages. Our Sea Islands rentals will be the perfect base as you explore the beaches, kayak the marshes, and treat yourself to delectable Southern fare. As barrier islands, Fripp, Harbor, Dataw, and St. Helena offer a unique beach experience. Walk the entire length of the beach on one side, and canoe through marshes on the other.
