About Steve Gritton

Contact me at or 828-817-2265. We have been renting our Beach Club Villa beginning in the year 2000. We do everything we can to see that you have a great visit. Please read our reviews to confirm we are having success at this!

Steve Gritton purchased this villa in 1999

Why Steve Gritton chose Low Country & Resort Islands

We purchased this property as we really like what Fripp Island has to offer. We think the beach is the best in SC as it is left in its natural state and nature knows how to take care of itself quite well.

We strive to keep everything up to date and clean. We work hard to earn your business and take pride in what we have to offer. We try our best to respond to you as quickly as possible and to provide as much info as we can.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed your place! It was beautiful, clean, and comfortable with all the amenities we would ever want. It was great to have access to Netflix while on vacation. We did use your crab pot and caught 14 nice size blue crabs. We cooked them for dinner over at Allison's Mom's house- just a block or so away. They were awesome!

The condo was everything that Steve said it was... very clean and well laid out for our family of four. We enjoyed the nice views of the salt marsh from our screened in porch on the back and appreciated the convenience of easy access to the pools and beach across the road in the front. Fripp Island is great for riding bicycles and touring with the golf cart. My son and I took advantage of both golf courses which were well maintained ... saw two big alligators. Hunting Island State Park was just a couple of miles away and was well worth the visit... beautiful beaches and lighthouse. Steve was very responsive to our questions and easy to work with. We hope to return for another visit.

Great location, clean, and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family of four. It was immaculate, and well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. We loved the location! The kids could ride ride their bikes just about anywhere they wanted to go. We spent a lot of time on the pier fishing and crabbing. We even caught supper a couple of nights.

The owner was so kind and quick to respond to all my questions. I highly recommend working with him.

Best family vacation, by far!

  • 5 of 5

I was incredibly impressed with the cleanliness and organization of everything. This suited our family of three perfect. Everything was spotless. As a mom who enjoys cooking, there was plenty of utensils and cookware to work with. It is in a perfect location as we easily accessed all of the pools and beach. As this was a last minute booking, the owner was far and beyond organized and kind. We will definitely be back!

Great owner

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit and the owner was very helpful in sending us information about the condo and Fripp Island before our visit. Everything was just as advertised. We did not spend much time in the condo but had everything we needed for our stay. Would definitely use this one again!
