About Rosanne McAlister

In 1999 we drove onto Fripp Island for the 1st time. That same day, we put an offer on our 1st home there. In 2010, we bought 'Sea Oats'. Our daughters and sons in law and 3 grandchildren adore Fripp Island. It has given us years of many happy memories. We know 'Sea Oats' can do the same for you.

Rosanne McAlister purchased this house in 2010

Why Rosanne McAlister chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Many people have told us that we have the best ocean view on Fripp Island. Since we are center island, it is wonderful to have a nice beach 24/7. We love looking up at the stars at night and the dolphins in the morning. Every year, sea turtles lay their eggs near our house. Wake up early and you might see a Mother Turtle going back to sea. Later in the summer, it is so fun to watch when the baby turtles hatch!

What makes this house unique

Our grandchildren love Camp Fripp, and our daughter loves her time off in the mornings! The center island location is perfect. We can walk down the beach to the Beach Club in about 10 minutes. There are fun activities there several nights a week in the summer.

Fripp Island is a family island, and everyone rides around on golf carts. With a 15 - 20 mph speed limit, the pace is easy and safe. There are so many wonderful activities and learning experiences for children. For the adult, there is fishing, sunset cruises, tennis and golf on 2 great golf course. Fripp Island is a nature preserve - a bird watcher's paradise. And nearby Hunting Island has great nature exhibits. Tour Penn Center and study the Gullah culture. Horseback Riding Facility 10 minutes from Fripp. Art Galleries, restaurants and shops in charming Beaufort by the Bay. Buy your fresh fish and garden vegetables along Highway 21.

The Perfect Beach Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed a week during the summer at Sea Oats for several years as our family vacation spot. It is kid friendly with upper and lower deck areas for parent getaways. The house is beautifully appointed and located in the perfect location at Fripp. It is centrally located on the island where you have sandy beach at all tide levels. All you need to do is pack your swim suit, load up the family, and head to Sea Oats. This house has everything else you might need. You can watch the kids on the beach from the deck and relax. This house has it all!

Breathtaking view & Perfect home for families

  • 5 of 5

We travel with another family for our beach trip each year so we needed a house that would give us plenty of space and be the right fit for kids ages infant to 15 years old. Sea Oats was the perfect fit for our families! The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you will need for a relaxing week. The view from the entire back of the house is breathtaking. The upper deck was perfect for views of the ocean and the lower deck was perfect for a low country boil and a covered area to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The lower level bedroom /bathroom was perfect for teens. We were fortunate enough to be visiting at the end of July when the sea turtles were hatching and saw multiple turtle nests hatch and make their way to sea which was a special treat! Each morning and evening, we had deer walking outside the property. The ice cream shop is just a short walk away. We have stayed at many houses over the years for our beach vacations. This was by far our favorite house and we re-booked it for our 2017 beach trip the day we checked out. The owner is fantastic to work with and very quick to respond. I would definitely recommend this property. You will not be disappointed!

Sea Oats,Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Fripp for seven years and this is by far the most beautiful home that we have stayed in. The pictures do not do this home justice. Everything is luxurious from the furnishings, to the linens, to the glassware. The breakfast room views are beyond compare as are the views from all the large picture windows overlooking the 24/7 uncrowded beach. The lower deck is covered and perfect for gathering outside, enjoying the ocean breezes and relaxing. The owners were terrific to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend this stunning home to vacationers looking for quality and location.
