About The Owner

We visited Fripp Island for the first time in 2000. We came back a month later and bought our first home here. That is a 3 bedroom home on the Ocean Creek Golf Course, VRBO listing #18539.

Simply said, we fell instantly, head-over-heels in love with Fripp. In the beginning we lived on the East Coast and were able to spend a great deal of time here. Eventually we moved to the mid-west and that first home became a rental. I enjoy the rental business so much--especially introducing First Time Fripp Island Guests to Fripp that we have over the years purchased 3 additional homes. 15 years later I still love what I do and I still have several guests from those early years that return to stay in my homes year after year.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Fripp Island

This spacious home has plenty of room for everyone! The oversized great room has multiple sofas and chairs. The dining room table easily seats 14. The screen porch offers shade, a fantastic ocean view and dining area for 8. The master bedroom suite has a wet bar, sitting room and oversized jazuzzi.

All this and your own private Beach Access Too!

Great property but needs upgrading

  • 3 of 5

We love the location and layout of this property - it is the second year we have rented it. It is right on the beach and is perfect for a large group of people. However, the house needs some serious upgrading. The front and back porches are falling apart, and the overall finishes in the house - bathrooms, floors, surfaces, kitchen - need to be refreshed and/or painted. Right now everything feels dirty and old even though it's clean. We would definitely rent it again if some of these changes were made.

We had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The view in and of itself was worth it. The property was awesome. We had a few issues with the property but as soon as we contacted the owner, she went above and beyond to resolve the issues. She was fast, efficient and very professional. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a real treat.

Owner's Response: Linda, Thank you for being such gracious and wonderful guests. I am not fortunate enough to meet many of my guests and am so glad my work at another home on the island overlapped your stay and allowed me to meet you and your amazing family. I do hope that your sibling Thanksgiving tradition leads you back to Fripp Island (and back to On The Fripp Side) again and again. Sincerely, Berta

Family spring break trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife's family looked for a place to have a little family reunion and we could not have asked for a better location or house. It was rather cold the week we were on the island but that did not dampen the mood or the pleasant experience everyone had. There was plenty to do on the island and will definitely love to go back in warmer weather and get out and about more. there owner of the house was very accommodating. She went out of her way to see if there were any items that we needed or any issues once we first arrived. She made the experience very enjoyable. We stayed plenty busy but I could have spent the entire time just sitting and watching the waves come in. I would recommend this to anyone with a medium size group that wants to spend a great week on a quiet island with beautiful surroundings.

Love that Veiw!!!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family loves Fripp Island and they love this spacious home. It has everything that we are looking for in a beach house. The screen porch is wonderful - we had many memorable meals there. The decks were a great place for the children to play when taking a break from the beach. The upstairs suite is so large that one son's whole family stayed there.

The views from this house can't be beat. And the location on the south end of the island gives you a more private feel.

This is a very special house for my family. It is the only time of the year that we can all be together and we choose to spend that time at "Berta's house."

I have also stayed here for a great "Girls' Weekend" in October.

This Wonderful home is located near the middle of Fripp Island--DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH.

This enormous home features generous room sizes and a large screened porch.

The roof top deck offers a 360 degree view of the marsh and Atlantic.

This home is located away from the congested areas of the resort but is still close enough to enjoy all Fripp Island has to offer. Just half a mile from the Beach Club at the center of the Island.

Fripp Island is a fantastic place for vacations including all age ranges. From 8 months to 80 years—your entire family will enjoy this special place.

Frpp Island is both a nature preserve and resort in one. Enjoy a morning walk on the beach and watch the Fripp Island Turtle Team scout for signs of new nests. The deer and birds are everywhere. And we do have our fair share of alligators.

The Fripp Island Club offers resort amenities at their finest. There are two championship golf courses, a tennis club, several pools and restaurants to choose from. There is a fee for access to the Fripp Island Club and as owners we are proud to be Club Members with the ability to offer you this opportunity.

Our beach home is located just outside beautiful Beaufort, SC. The Beaufort area boasts many art, dining and historical offerings.

Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC are each just a bit further away and make excellent day trip excursions from Fripp Island. These cities also have the closest commercial airports.

We are super convenient to the Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot We are proud to offer a discount to the families attending their loved-one's Marine Corp Graduation.
