About the Property
AERIAL VIDEO: 5 BR - Amenity Cards available - 75yds from beach access
“Shellebration!” has an open, spacious floor plan. The entrance opens into the living area with ceilings adorned with wood beams and floor to ceiling windows, allowing the Lowcountry sun to shine in. The living area comes equipped with a 65-inch plasma TV w/Blu-Ray, a sofa, love seat, and a chair & ottoman. During the winter, relax by the fireplace (upstairs OR down) with your feet up and a good book.
KITCHEN & DINNING ROOM...
“Shellebration!” has a beautiful dining room equipped to seat 6 comfortably. You will find everything that you need in the well-lit, open and well-equipped kitchen that offers additional sitting for 6.
MASTER BED/BATH & SUN ROOM...
The master bedroom has a beautiful queen size bed with full dresser and two night stands with romantic lighting. Step out of the master into the sun room for additional seating. Wicker furnishings offer a comfortable area for sipping coffee, reading the paper or enjoying a nightcap. The sun room is equipped with a separate entrance to the front porch for quiet entry into the master bedroom. Master bath offers a dual vanity with bath and shower.
REST OF UPSTAIRS...
Second bedroom furnishings include a queen-sized bed with night stand and soft lighting. Third bedroom is spacious and has two twin beds with night stand. Hallway bath is a single sink vanity with bathtub and shower.
Venture down the wrought iron spiral staircase to find the downstairs living area. Furnishings include a 32-inch flat screen w/DVD, love seat, sofa and over-sized chair. You will also find a beautiful fireplace for sitting and relaxing. Enjoy some ping pong! Two additional bedrooms can be found in the lower living area. Bedroom One is equipped with a double-size bed and a set of twin bunk beds while Bedroom Two offers a queen bed with nightstand.
“Shellebration!” is only 75 yards from the beach. On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 foot tides. At low tide, you will find that you walk out about 300 beautiful, scenic yards to get to the ocean. There is a wonderful large tidal pool, which, as any veteran of the SC coast will tell you, is a great place for both small children and semi-submerged beach chairs. Don’t forget the floating cooler!
As anyone who has ever stayed at a 'public access' beach can attest, Fripp Island's greatest – and most unique – feature is that it is private. The whole island. You can’t get over the bridge without being an owner or renter. That means no overcrowded beaches and the roads are not choked with the cars of thousands of day-trippers. It’s hard to overstate just how much this adds to the character of Fripp Island – and to your vacation. And we are just a short but BEAUTIFUL ride from Paris Island.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Fripp Island does not have a commercial corridor – which is nice but it also means there is no grocery store. There’s a tiny shoppette where you can buy milk, etc., but the nearest real grocery store is in back on St. Helena, about a 20 minute drive. So plan your food, grill, and beverage situation. (Which is why you will LOVE having that 2nd fridge downstairs!)
AMENITY CARDS - Amenity cards are only needed to access the club benefits on the island (such as the pool, golf course and restaurants). You do NOT need an amenity card to access the beach. Should you wish to purchase cards, during the summer season (Memorial Day - Labor Day), each card is $50 for a 7 day pass and $35 for a 4 day pass. During the off season, the passes are $35 for a 7 day pass and $25 for a 4 day pass. These fees are a pass through charge from the Club to us to you with no upcharges. Only those 14 years and older need an amenity card. If you are unsure if you will need amenity cards, we would be glad to talk you through the process before you commit to purchasing them.
SORRY, NO PETS...
For the comfort of our future guests and the cleanliness of our home, we have a strict "no pets" policy - regardless of how well-trained.

About the owner: Here is a little about us .... Shell is a South Carolinian and a graduate of The Citadel. He has gone to Fripp Island since he was a boy. Jennifer, although native to New Jersey, has called South Carolina her home for 30 years. You can GUARANTEE that we will do our best to be accessible to you with your questions both before and during your stay. We want you to fall in love with Fripp just like we have!
Why the Owner Chose Fripp Island, SC, USA:
This house is PERFECT for families or large groups. With two distinct living areas (one up and one down), the kids can have a blast downstairs with the tv / ping pong table / card table / large sofas while the adults relax upstairs in their own living room. The house is surrounded by beautiful trees that give you privacy and shade, yet you are only steps from the beach!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to the beach / located on a dead end road / private / quiet / clean. A GREAT place to visit. But don't just take our word for it, look at our past guest reviews!
