About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Baths, Spacious Living/ Kitchen, Golf Cart And Beach Supplies

Throw that stunning bathing suit in a suitcase, and anxiously grab your car keys! No need to fret over this trip! When arriving at the Crimson Tide home on Fripp Island, you will find all the amenities and comforts of your own home. No need to fuss about beach toys, we have them. No need to search for wiggle room in the car for beach towels, we have them. No need to fret about beach chairs, umbrellas or coolers. No need to worry about packing a lot of clothes. Our washing machine and dryer have their job to do. No need to worry about linens, towels, kitchen supplies or a grill. All you will need (except your food) awaits you at the Crimson Tide! AND...

Along with all the amenities of home, the comforts of home also awaits! When turning onto Porpoise Drive, be sure to roll down your car windows and listen to the roar of the ocean surf sounding through the trees. You are at the island now, it is time to unwind. The Crimson Tide will greet you beneath the Spanish Moss of towering Oak Trees. The front porch fans and rocking chairs are longing to be a place where you can find some time for yourself and listen to the surf and whispers of Fripp Habitat.


When stepping into the Crimson Tide, prepare yourself for the inviting Shabby Chic decor, featuring Roman shades in every room, and heartwarming accessories, pillows and throws. When it comes to what you will eat, the kitchen will be your assisting chef. Everything you will need to serve that perfect seafood dish or the All-American Grilled Burger is here!

Do you need some snuggle time with that special someone in your life? Walk into the tranquility of the master bedroom, featuring a King Size Bed and a two person tile shower. Will you have children, in-laws or friends on this trip? The three upstairs bedrooms can fill every need. One room features a Queen Bed, another room features Twin Beds, and the Fourth Room (designed especially for young children) features a futon bed with top bunk and bottom bunk that folds out to full size. The bathrooms will accommodate both young and old. There is a half bath in the midst of the living area, and the master bath on the main level as well. Upstairs, the bathroom is located between bedrooms, so on one will intrude on any privacy.

Take a short walk to our Ocean Point. Sit in the swing and watch the dolphins play. Try your luck at fishing for some Whiting, OR...jump on the golf cart, load up the beach buggy and head to the beach. Grab your golf clubs or your tennis racquet. Take a pleasant golf cart ride around the island. Search for the hidden nature walks and crabbing docks. Go paddle boarding. Feel the warmth of island sunshine and beauty of the ocean as you venture out to go deep sea fishing. Go shopping. Eat ice cream. Read a book. It is time for YOUR vacation. It is time to make a memory. Have Fun on Fripp! We know you will!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Terry, Vickie, Jonathan and Janea are eager to welcome you to visit their home on Fripp known as the Crimson Tide. Terry and Vickie grew up in a small rural town in Alabama called Gordo. They were high school sweethearts, and after 36 years of marriage and raising their children, they still find happiness by spending quality time together. Terry presently is a Personal Financial Planner for Ameriprise Financial and Vickie is an adjunct English Instructor/English Tutor at their local Community College - Shelton State. Both are alumni from the University of Alabama, as well as their daughter Janea. Jonathans career as a Pharmacy Technician took him down a different educational path; however, all are avid Crimson Tide supporters and love yelling for their Crimson Tide!

Why the Owner Chose Saint Helena Island, SC, USA:
Not only are the Simpsons ecstatic about the Crimson Tide, but they are equally ecstatic about this little island known as Fripp! The family love for Fripp began 15 years ago when Terry brought the family to Fripp to have some vacation fun while he took care of business in Beaufort. Little did he know that Fripp would become the family spot for his family for the years to come. Each member found something they absolutely loved on the island. For the children, it was the beautiful setting and water of the Cabana Pool and the golf cart rides; for Vickie, it was the uncrowded beach and safe environment for the kids as she relaxed in the warmth of sunshine by the pool or on the beach. Now that the children are grown, the family love for Fripp is even stronger! Whether its tee time, beach time, or quiet time, a Fripp Island vacation is where they long to be. Due to their love for Fripp Island, they decided to purchase a home on Fripp so they could offer a place where families could come and experience what they have. Now the Simpsons are thrilled to be property owners and can not wait for the future generations of the Simpsons to enjoy Fripp! Fun on Fripp....that is what life is truly about. Sharing fun times with family in a place where everyone loves to be! This is the place to make lasting memories!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ~Leonardo da Vinci This quote seemed to be spoken for this particular home on Fripp Island. It is quite simple, but too elegant for spoken words. Nestled beneath the Spanish moss of the majestic South Carolina hardwoods, sits the Crimson Tide. Its view is quiet, and inviting to a time of self reflection. Its floor plan offers space, but also privacy. Its features offer luxury and its accessories offer a warm feeling of being at right in the comfort of your own home. When you come to the Crimson Tide, you can travel light. Almost everything you need is here --- waiting for you.
