Why Owner/Manager chose Fripp Island
We purchased this lot in 2003 because we felt it was the best ocean lot on Fripp Island. We spent over five years designing this custom home and completed it in 2014. The home is 100% custom designed and built. Home was designed by Allison Ramsey Architects and the owners over a five year period. We started coming to Fripp Island in 1999 and our kids all grew up coming here. We spend our vacations and holidays here with all our extended family. This home is where we hope families will create memories like we have been able to do.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this lot because it combines two of the unique things about Fripp Island. Looking out the back windows your back yard is simply a 180 degree view of the beach and ocean, while the front yard view gives you the island feel and look of the lovely palm and palmetto trees unique to the barrier islands of low country South Carolina.

Luxury, in-house privacy, convenience, Glory Days at Family Tides
We spent two heavenly weeks at Family Tides this summer, giving us precious moments I will never forget. Fripp has been our vacation choice for 14 plus years, since having two young daughters there in their early lives, and now our extended families with sons in law and four grans. We have rented 'luxury' rentals before, with elevators, multiple refrigerators, and media galore, but this property exceeded all of our past rentals' amenities, and then some. The most important parts of the house for us are its glorious porches on both levels, beach front accessibility, basement shower/toilet, and privacy galore so that each family can have their own internal privacy. Pocket doors closing off various parts of the house as well as the fabulous floor design with two washer/dryers on living levels and refrigerators on different levels as well, gave each family the ability to have private time together not shared with the group. The large gathering rooms and porches and unbelievably well-equipped kitchen allow whole family events with no crowding. The tasteful decor is a reflection of the owner---no clutter but lovely accents which do not get in the way of functionality. The next door neighbor caretaker was ever present, reponsive, and helpful in every way, as were the owners. I will not talk about Fripp, which is a subject unto itself and the very best vacation spot in the USA. But I will say that this house is the best we have ever had in every way, and we are anticipating eagerly next year's stay.
Beautiful home!!!! Just keep the sand on the beach. Won't let you come back.
Absolutely beautiful home, great location. all of the amenities... however the owners have unrealistic expectations. We were told we could not come back because there was sand on the floor...well it is on the beach front and there were no rugs on the doors coming from the deck. There were plenty of hose that we used to get the sand off, but really ? And I was told they saw spaghetti sauce in the kitchen. Well , here again I cleaned after each dinner but I also knew that the cleaners were coming at the end of the week. So I did not get my rubber gloves out and clean .When we checked out we did everything that was requested from us. It was a little shocking when the caretaker met us at the house at check in and told us we were not allowed to wear shoes in the house. ..Now I can understand shoes from the beach .. but no shoes.? We had a great stay , I just really believe the owners should not be renting this home. Keep it to your self, it is beautiful.
Best vacation trip in recent memory!
Absolutely fabulous vacation rental property!! Without a doubt, one of the most stunning properties on the entire island. The quality and craftsmanship that went into building this home is beyond description. The home's interior decorating was exquisite, and featured an incredible gourmet kitchen. The bedrooms were spacious, and very relaxing. My entire family enjoyed the warm and comfortable feeling of the home. We've already booked our return trip next year, and we'll be a frequent return guest going forward.
