Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our condo is located right on the ocean and you can watch the dolphins play from our living room! Why stay on an island if you aren't going to have an ocean view?

We've recently renovated the entire condo by painting the walls, added beautiful ceramic tile floors, new appliances, new queen size bed, new dining room table/chairs, plus a new sleeper sofa and love seat. In addition, we've added new flat screen TV's in the living room and bedroom along with a DVD/CD player for evening movies and popcorn. There is also a new mini-stereo to play your favorite music.

Your villa features a large, comfortable living room and dining room area, fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast nook, a large bedroom, bathroom, patio, and parking garage. The breakfast nook overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard featuring BBQ grills and tables surrounded by banana plants and hibiscus.

Fripp Island is located on the South East coast of South Carolina in the picturesque Lowcountry. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, it’s just a short drive to some of the country's most historic sites in Beaufort, Charleston, and Savannah. Many of Hollywood’s finest movies have been filmed here, including Forest Gump, Prince of Tides, The Big Chill, The Great Santini, and Jungle Book.

Named as one of the '100 Best Golf Resorts in North America' by Links Magazine, Fripp Island has two fantastic golf courses with classic layouts and distinct personalities. The clubhouse for the Ocean Point Golf Course is just steps away from our condo.

Camp Fripp is designed for children ages 3-12 years old, it offers a fun filled day with crafts, nature trips, beach trips, pool games, and much more. Fisherman can spend their time along the meandering tidal creeks catching abundant fish, shrimp, and blue crabs. For the shopper, there are numerous shops and boutiques on the island offering everything from casual wear and souvenirs to grocery items.

Guests have a choice of five different restaurants on the Island. There are numerous swimming pools on the island (one of them heated year round) that overlook the ocean.

There are eight soft and two hard surface tennis courts for your enjoyment as well as jogging, bike and roller blade trails, and scenic nature paths. You can also rent boats, jet skis, kayaks, golf carts, bikes, mopeds, or book a seat on one of the regularly scheduled excursion boats for dolphin watching, shelling, and exploring!

About The Owner

We live in Ohio, although we would love to permanently relocate to Fripp some day.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Saint Helena Island

We were vacationing and looking for real estate on Hilton Head and somewhat stumbled upon Fripp. From the first moment we came on the island we fell in love with it. The relaxed pace and breathtaking scenery hooked us right away.

What makes this condo unique

Love looking out of our condo and watch the changing of the tides or dolphins playing in the Ocean. I enjoy listening to music with my ipod connected to the mini-stereo. It's great to be able to walk 1 minute and be at the golf course and driving range, the swimming pool or the restaurant. The oversized soaking tub is very relaxing after a day of golf. I really enjoy grilling fresh seafood or a steak and then have dinner overlooking the Ocean.

Our family had a wonderful time on this beautiful island. Everything was perfect!

Okay, not fab

  • 3 of 5

The condo was very small and a bit outdated, especially the bathroom. It was not stocked as it was supposed to be - 1/4 roll of t.p. And an empty bottle of dish soap. That may not seem like a big deal but when you are on an island and on vacation it matters. The condominium complex had sustained damage from hurricane Matthew and it had not been completely fixed. There were nails, screws, industrial staples, and splintered wood outside of our back door. It would have been nice to know this in advance. None of this was the owners' fault, but the rental agency should be more on top of things.

The beach access was good, the beaches were clean and beautiful, and the activities were many. Since it was just two adults we adapted to the condo issues, but I would not have been happy if I had children with us.

Owner's Response: We apologize that your stay wasn't great. We've addressed the stocking of items with our housekeeper and that has been rectified. Fripp was hit by hurricane Matthew and the cleanup and renovations at our complex are almost complete. It certainly was a challenge for the construction crews to keep things tidy on a daily basis. The island and our complex looks so much better now though. Thank you for the feedback!

GREAT Condo

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this condo twice! It is well suited for 2 adults and even a small family. I absolutely have loved working with the owners for both of my stays and hope to stay there again soon. the ocean view from the living room is spectacular! You will want to rent a golf cart to get around to other areas of the island.

great view

  • 4 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our time on Fripp Island. The view from this condo for the price is unparalleled! Bring your fishing pole as the ocean is right in front of you. The Shrimp Shack and Gay's Fish Market are awesome and right down the road. The deer come right up to you looking for a treat --the kids got a kick out of that! Savannah is simply 50 miles away, Beaufort is another town rich in history and don't forget to visit the Hunting Island lighthouse. Only one negative about our stay was the pull out sofa sleeper -- I wouldn't sleep man, child or beast on this atrocity (sorry Christina); however, the bed was very very comfortable. The one thing that I really appreciated about renting this condo was no fussing around with the cleaning fees or any other hassles. One price and done! Thank you again for opening your home to those of us just passing through!

Wonderful week away

  • 4 of 5

The condo was lovely, a comfy place for my husband and I to stay for the week. It was conviently located near the golf fours which my husband loved and the ocean views made each morning more than special. The owners were great to work with, responsive to all our questions! We will most certainly be back!
