Fripp Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Open to ocean breezes and great views of the water, ocean, or golf lagoon. Our sunny, contemporary home is elegant, comfortable, functional, and designed for fun. With 1,930 square feet of easy living, supplemented by 796 additional square feet in decks and porches opening off each room, everyone can find space and privacy here. T he Ocean Point beach has changed and grown with the sand bar.

Our home is about 80 yards from ocean; walk to the Ocean Point pool and play area (about 100 yards) Other fresh water pools are located at the Beach or Cabana Club complexes. The closest beach access would be by Ocean Point pool or, using the golf cart provided with rental, on Marlin and Tarpon. A current guide is available with your car pass at gate.

Please note our floor plan which features three bedrooms, each one open to decks and great vistas and are located on the upper floor. The comfortable master suite has a King bed, cultured marble twin vanities, marble whirlpool tub, and separate shower. The other two bedrooms, one with Queen and one with twin beds, share an adjacent bath. A sleep sofa is in the first floor den/TV room.

On the main floor a spacious gourmet kitchen with two sinks and ample work space allows room for everyone to be in the kitchen, working or being social. Seating for two is at the island work center; view the ocean as you wash dishes.

A wet bar, comfortable seating, TV/DVD/VCR/satellite, and access to the lagoon-side screen porch and deck are in the adjacent living room. A separate dining room, bath and a sitting room/den complete the first floor. Ideally situated on the first floor, the sitting room with its new interspring double sleep sofa is a great place for the children to watch their programming. Our satellite system features two receivers and three sets.

Our home is designed for beauty and for efficiency of operation and care. This spring new carpet and paint throughout has been accomplished. The laundry room is conveniently situated on the bedroom floor, and a central vacuum system eases the daily routine. Our housekeeper is very conscientious, and the home is well-equipped. Additional housekeeping service is available at additional charge.

Birding is terrific, not only around our lagoon, but all around the area. Sea turtles nest on our beach and adjoining Islands. Fishing and shrimping are great! Don't miss the marsh walkway in Port Royal for seeing many varieties of birds. This is a very busy rookery as well.

There is everything to do here, and nothing!

Please note, no smoking inside home. Dispose of tobacco materials properly at house and on Island. Excess cleaning fee applies. Pine straw around home can be flammable.

Keywords: Ocean view home overlooking the 1st tee and 9th green of golf course.

About Dianne Letson

After visiting most Southern beach areas, we find Fripp still the best we have found. There is a feeling of comfort to be on our Island influenced by its size, awe of nature, wonderful residents, varied activities and peace of mind that we find. Being so close to nature is good for all ages.

We have been fortunate to find guests who appreciate our property and the Fripp Island nature.

Dianne Letson purchased this house in 1996

Why Dianne Letson chose Low Country & Resort Islands

After vacationing here for more than 10 years, we bought our first house in 1990 just as the Village of Ocean Point was developed. In 1996, we decided to build right next door our own version of the ideal beach vacation house. We love the unique location of Fripp, the advantages of our lot location (after the golf course players leave the course to the wildlife) it is ideal to walk to the pool and OP beach access, watch nature, and enjoy the views. We like the opportunity to travel by golf cart anywhere on Island and find the Community Center and FI Club have many enjoyable activities available. The other pools are within a few minutes.

The Fripp Community welcomes everyone to come to chapel on Wednesday

evenings or bingo games on Tuesday and Friday. Children can play bingo here.

What makes this house unique

There is everything to do here, and nothing to do. We can watch the birds and wildlife, sunrise and sunsets, enjoy being at the beach. The house was designed by us for family, friends, and guests of all ages with ease of daily living and maintenance in mind. We know our Housekeeper always has our property looking its best. Once the golf course closes for the day, the wildlife (deer) appears on the course. This is a family environment where we are close to nature while respecting the barrier islands in South Carolina

Fantastic House and Owners

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, my husband, daughter, son-in-law, and 2 grandchildren 5 and 10) went on our first vacation in over 10 years and had the best time. Fripp Island is a wonderful family place with great beaches, pools, activities, and very friendly people. We truly enjoyed the whole experience. The house was everything we could have hoped for and then some. Since I am handicapped the elevator and golf cart came in very handy and made it possible for me to be able to go and enjoy time with my family. We did experience a couple of problems with the house but the owners had a repairman out right away and fixed the problem. We were very please with how well they treated us and took care of the property. The house has everything you need from a gourmet kitchen to very comfortable beds. We will be back every year now that we have found this wonderful island and house.

Although we do try to keep everything in good order, we appreciate guests who understand "things happen" at inconvenient times to all homeowners. We now have 2 new hvac systems and a repair has been made permanent. Lastly, it will be wonderful to have our guests returning.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love your home and its beautiful setting. This is my fifth time to the island, each time with my husband and young son. We love the slower pace of the island, yet you are only steps from the beach, pool, and golf for my husband.

We like the fact that this house is close to the amenities yet is near the portion of the beach that is less crowded. Of course, if you want to be around more hustle and bustle there is the beachclub beach access where more people tend to congregate. The owner's personal golf cart that they include with the rental was great and helped us avoid the hassle that others experienced when the resort did not have enough golf carts for rent on a busy holiday weekend.

My son loves to stand on the back decks and watch the golfers practice putting and then tee-off on the first hole.

I prefer not to eat out every meal so greatly appreciated the nice kitchen and entertainment area. Great to be able to look out at the ocean while you cook dinner. Love the sunsets.

Can't wait to return and will be sure to stay in this house again.

Perfect Easter Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family looking for a nicely furnished home with easy access to golf, walking, a pool, or access to the ocean. We also had our dog with us, which was the first time we had brought a pet.

The house is well maintained, clean, and recently updated, including new carpeting and several new pieces of furniture in the family room. The kitchen had everything I needed, plus has a separate fridge that can be used for beverages.

The location is the best because you can see golfers on the first tee out your back windows and you can see the ocean from the front bedroom windows. While being directly on the ocean would seem better, you are far enough away that you don't get the direct wind from the open ocean, and in April that is a big plus as there was a rain storm that blew through. I also used to golf cart to zip around the island.

I did use their internet, which is DSL. If you are used to high-speed cable, the DSL will be slower, but I was always able to connect to do work or read the news online.

Overall, great house. The owner is very accommodating and friendly, and prompt in getting contracts and information to you. Highly recommend this location.

Perfect house on the perfect island!

  • 5 of 5

From the magnificent views to the well appointed kitchen - this was our favorite rental on Fripp! We have visited the island more than 5 times and have stayed at the marsh, the canal and oceanfront. This house is just as described and offers ocean views from each floor. Only steps from the beach and pool - we loved the quiet, low traffic area and the short ride to center island. This was most important as we visited over July 4th and we had never seen it so busy! It was great to visit the activities and then retreat to our serene area ~

With 4 adults, 3 children and our dog, this house provided plenty of sleeping and living space for all. We loved the screened in porch and the decks off each bedroom. Beds were very comfortable and rooms have plenty of storage and space for kids and the toys they brought along. The laundry upstairs was especially convenient and there were plenty of bath towels.

This little corner of the island and the lovely beach at low tide offers the widest beach we've found. You can walk out a long, long way before the water gets deep - ideal for our kids. The outdoor shower was great to have every day after the beach. At high tide we often visited the pool right outside the house or went center island.

The owners were very easy to work with - and answered all of our questions. It was most important to me that this pet-friendly house was so incredibly clean and free of any signs of pets having stayed there in the past. Beautiful location, comfortable home and all the fun of Fripp! We will be back!

Happy Family from Ga.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for a week in July 2009. It was wonderful. Everything in the house was beautiful and clean. The listing was on target. The owner was a delight to work with in making arrangements. The house was comfy and felt like home. The elevator was wonderful for my degenerative arthritis. It was very nice to sit on the front porch and see the waves....very peaceful. We definitely plan a return visit. It is also pet friendly which is a plus!

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for introducing us to Fripp Island. We had a marvelous vacation in July 2011. Our daughter is 2 and she loved the beach for the first time (we have taken her to the beach every summer since she was an infant but this was the first time she actually enjoyed it!). Having the pool just around the corner is a real treat too. We enjoyed the use of the golf cart and being able to toodle around every evening to see the deer and other wildlife on the island. We look forward to returning each year and making this a family tradition. Thank you so much for all your ideas, suggestions and assistance as we planned our trip! We have already shared the website with several friends and family in case they are are interested in the perfect beach getaway as well.
