Welcome to 'Sandy Shores' Fripp Island 3rd row ocean home. This is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home near the center of the island. It has a ramp off the back of the house for access without using stairs.

Just steps to the best beach on the island.... 120 steps to the boardwalk which provides a 24 hour, 7 days a week beach. You are so close to the water at this uncrowded access with plenty of room to set up for the day, but only a few feet from the high tide line. It is also the best part of the beach to boogie board and surf. We are located just 2 blocks from the Beach Club.

The 4th bedroom is a bunk room for kids. The kitchen was a total remodel and has all new appliances, granite countertops, new cabinetry, tile floor, and is generously furnished. There are 3 dining areas in this spacious home (2,450 square feet of living space) plus a table on the deck for outdoor dining. The living room has a new 40' flat screen TV. The bathrooms are tile floors with new counters and all new fixtures.

About Marla Gatley

We live in Kansas and have spent our summers on Fripp Island since 2006.

Marla Gatley purchased this house in 2012

Why Marla Gatley chose Fripp Island

We love this property because it is so close to the best beach on Fripp Island with 24/7 beach, even at high tide. The house sits next to the boardwalk that leads to the beach. It is near the center of the island, just 2 blocks from the Beach Club, which includes the pools, food court, tennis courts, shopping, Sand Bar, gym, and countless activities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I just got home from my son's Marine Corps Graduation. It was the most remarkable event! I want to say that your home is absolutely beautiful. We all had our own space, had a great time at the beach yesterday afternoon, and had extended family for a cookout on Friday evening. My son has a few friends who have enlisted since he started boot camp and you can bet I will highly recommend your property. Thank you for opening your home to us.

Unfortunately this home was not well kept at all, frankly it was filthy. We couldn't use the washing machine because the of the mold and filth. There was food splatter on kitchen walls, along will all the walls being dirty and kitchen cabinet doors dirty. Paint/drywall hanging from areas of the ceilings from apparent water damage, curtain rods hanging off wall, screens with holes, moldy shower curtains, terrible stains in carpet etc.

Very disappointing because the pictures really did look nice. This house can accommodate a large family. Nice area of homes, Fripp Island was very pretty and the proximity to the beach is great. This house needs some love and sprucing up!

We had a blast!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Fripp Island! 😍The home was everything we needed and more! It had plenty of room for our large group. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking. Marla Gatley was great to respond quickly. She was very sweet and accommodating! Honestly, the only bad thing about our stay was it wasn't long enough!! We are already making plans to go back!

Loved, Loved, Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to Fripp Island and we had a blast. The house was the perfect size for our family, location to the beach was perfect and the house itself was perfect. We had children that ranged from 16yrs old to 16mths old and we loved the fact that we were able to let the older ones come and go as they wanted and didn't have to worry about them. This was our first family vacation with all of my Children and grandchildren and we have decided to make this an annual trip and have decided to stay in the same house.
