Fripp Island is a 3000-acre private, gated island 19 miles outside of Beaufort, South Carolina. The island has three and one-half miles of beach, with two golf courses. One course is an oceanfront golf course. The second course is an award-winning Davis Love III golf course with a beautiful marsh setting. The ten tennis courts are less than a city block from our house. The island sports miles of scenic bike paths, fitness center, and Camp Fripp, a children's recreation activity center.

The marina has a great boat landing and ample moorage, charter boats, and boat rentals. Several artificial fishing reefs are from one and one-half to nine miles off shore and offer excellent fishing. The marina is on a large tidal creek that opens to a vast expanse of estuaries with some of the best fishing, crabbing, and shrimping on the East Coast.

The beauty of the island has enticed movie makers repeatedly to the Island. Forrest Gump, Jungle Book, and the Prince of Tides were all filmed on Fripp.

One of the best locations on the Island... within 200 feet of the beach, tennis, pools, basketball, and shops... marina a half mile away... two golf courses within a short distance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are Dave & Wylene Martin. We live in Charleston, SC. I am a retired HS coach and administrator and my wife is a retired second grade school teacher. We enjoy golf, working out and being at Fripp. We have two children, Tradd who owns 'Househunter', a real-estate company in Columbia, and Brooke who is an international flight attendant.

Why the Owner Chose Fripp Island, SC, USA:
Fripp is a special place. Living in Charleston, we could be at Kiawah, Wild Dunes, etc. However, Fripp is worth the extra hour and a half drive. We especially like the people and the laid back life style Fripp provides.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Once we arrive at Fripp, we find it hard to leave the island, even to go shopping. However, we do have to go off the island to Boondocks Restaurant at least once a week. Everything that we ever wanted in our retirement is at Fripp, golf, beach, beautiful surroundings, boating, and great bike and walking trails. It is our paradise.
