Fripp Island is a beautiful, private, low key vacation heaven.
Nothing tops beachfront views and access!
Fripp Island is a jewel and this villa - located at the perfect spot on the island - is a wonderful place to take it all in! The villa offers all the comforts of home but with a spectacular ocean view and a chance to watch dolphins frolic while drinking your coffee in the morning. The unit is nicely decorated and equipped. We really enjoyed buying fresh shrimp down the road and bringing it back to the unit to prepare it. Once you have been here a day or two it is so comfortable and relaxing it is hard to leave the balcony. If you make it to the beach (steps from the unit) it is hard to leave it to go golfing or golf carting around the island. And leaving the island to take in the charms of Beaufort or Hunting Island takes an effort. No matter what you choose to do during your vacation this is a great place to stay.
We had an absolutely wonderful time in this little villa. Everything worked beautifully and we had no issues at all. The location is perfect for beach lovers like us! The villa is decorated so lovely and really has that "beach house" feel. We were so happy to have choosen this place and will definitely be back!!
I recently stayed in this unit with my family and found it to be as advertised. The unit looked just like the photos on the web site and the location of this unit is perfect. I personally found the unit to be extremely well equipped for cooking and comfortable. Our family had such a great time, we look forward to another vacation in this unit if available. Vacations are made for memories and this visit certainly did not disappoint.
Perhaps the reality matched the description and pictures years ago, but we found this unit to be far from immaculate and updated. The smell of mold was overpowering and continually irritating. The carpet, floors, upholstery were filthy; the first floor, in particular, was in need of a good coat of paint if not redecoration. The kitchen was falling apart (featured by a dishwasher that came disconnected from the wall) and lacked basics for anyone who wanted to cook with more than one saucepan that had a lid or who wanted more varied serviceware than a tall pile of dinnerplates. The view from the deck was incredible and unmatched. Accessibility to the beach and pool was inviting. We would rent it again in a minute if the reality truly matched the description.
The island is beautiful! We spent 2 nights there this past weekend and it just wasnt enough. The condo looks exactly like the photos posted. The beach is only several steps away. When the tide goes out it makes several tidal pools that you can wade out to from the beach that is in only ankle deep water. Collected several pretty shells, saw deer, lots of crabs, and saw dolphins from our balcony our last morning there. We bought "YUMMY" shrimp from the Gay fish company that is located on your right before crossing the last bridge to the island at 7.00 per pound for very large, very fresh shrimp. Janet, the owner is a jewel. Very helpful and sweet. Lillian at the main desk at check in was very helpful also. The pool that is connected to this condo is very private. We had it to ourselves all weekend... smiles! The water was almost too warm but refreshing from the 89 degree weather. There is a hot tub at The Cabana Club that is also open for your use. It was nice to soothe tired muscles after the 5.5 hour drive from Commerce Ga. We should have rented a golf cart as most people use these rather than cars. Much easier to get to the other beaches and closer parking to them. The marshes were breath taking at sunrise and sunset. It is very dark on the beach and island after sunset due to few street lamps, but a flashlight works great by the light of the moon. It was a full moon when we were there. The entertainment at the beachclub was great, Reggee, jazz, fun music. Drinks are reasonably priced. Food at the beach club was pricey but the steak was very good. Bring beach chairs, a cooler, and beach towels. Also bring a cracker for any fresh crabs you may catch as there was not one there. The condo was clean, beds pretty comfy, the water pressure in showers was great. I would rent this condo again.
This is a GREAT unit - clean and bright, but mostly, it's literally right on the beach. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the waves go by.
The beach out front is interesting in that it's very flat. This makes for especially great skim-boarding. It's also perfect sand (hard-pack) for jogging. We plan to stay here again next year.
