Saint Helena Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our gated, private island is unique in so many ways everyone seems to wish to return. This 3 bed room home was built as a model home on Porpoise Drive. It has several upgrades, including wood and ceramic floors on the main level. It is fully carpeted upstairs where the 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths are located. Fripp Inlet is just down the street where a fishing and crabbing deck is located; A great place to watch sunrises over the ocean or sunsets over the marsh. The street is wonderfully quite, even in season and my grandchildren have spent many hours on bikes, skateboards, etc. in the street. The Audubon Trail is across the street. In addition to 3 miles of wonderful white sand beach, Fripp Island is a nature preserve with hundreds of seemingly tame deer, charming aviaries, raccoon, numerous shore birds, and, of course, alligators. While golf carts are a common means of transportation, walking and biking is a great way to spend time on this unique island.

About Ben Hays

Clean, spacious, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean. The bedrooms are spacious. The owner has everything you need there for preparing meals and going to the beach. The location is quiet, and away from all the tourist hustle and bustle. We loved being so close (four houses) from the ocean view and just a short golf cart drive to the beach. Ben is very accommodating and will do anything for you. He was attentive to our needs the entire week. Being able to bring pets was very important to us and this place is perfect for them and our family. I took my mother, aunt and aunt's friend, all over age 70. Two of us went to the beach, and two only left the house twice! The house was so nice, I guess they never wanted to leave. (Or maybe it was the heat...) We felt like we were at home. We will definitely be going back to Ben's house! We loved it there!

Lovin' Fripp

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Fripp Island home in April, it was absolutely amazing! Short trip to the beach, take the golf cart or bikes! The house was nice and clean. Ben answered all our questions. The hot tub was down during our stay but Ben made sure we had accommodations for the inconvenience. I would recommend this house to everyone, there is not an age or group that would not love this house and island. If we plan another vacation to the area we will be renting here again! Pet friendly! See plenty of deer and make sure to explore the entire island and all the beach accesses!

Great Vacation House, Clean and Comfortable, Close to the Ocean & Pet Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Great time on Fripp for a girl's week (Mother, Daughter, Sister & Myself). The home is clean and comfortable and the hot tub is relaxing. Ben was extremely helpful and he responded quickly to any questions and/or needs we had. He even suggested we pick up a handicap sticker from the Admin office for the golf cart so that we could drive our 85 year old mother directly onto the beach.....brilliant idea! Both the golf cart and the bikes worked well to explore the island. The property is pet friendly as we brought a small dog with us and we received our full deposit at the end of our stay. I would recommend this property!

Great property just minutes from the ocean!!!

  • 4 of 5

Took my family of five to Fripp Island to celebrate our 17th Wedding Anniversary. We have been coming down here every spring to enjoy the island. I must say, this home was the best that we have stayed in, in regards to location and amenities. We prepared an entire Easter dinner in this home. Kids had a blast after a couple days of monsoon rains. Had 2 great beach days before departing. Ben was very responsive to a couple minor problems (wrong key code and hot tub malfunction). Otherwise, would have been a perfect stay! We will definitely be coming back next spring!

Great Fripp Island Home! Worth a return visit! Clean, with everything we needed, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love to travel. We like to try new places; but, this home was well worth a return visit for us. We have only returned to two properties, and this is one of the two. We first visited a couple of years ago. We just returned from another visit. The home is large and inviting, clean, well stocked, has a great hot tub, a small fenced in back yard, a deck with a grill, and a very nice front porch. We were even able to use the golf cart and bring our small fur babies. Ben went out of his way to be accommodating, friendly, and helpful. We had a great time and look forward to returning again. Highly recommend this property and owner, A++.
