**Please read our 'TRAVELER REVIEWS', below; and GUESTBOOK COMMENTS FROM THE OWNER, 64 much-appreciated reviews, from unsolicited emails submitted by our guests, over the past 12 years of ownership. We do our best to ensure that your vacation time is very comfortable and enjoyable.
The bright and sunny villa was totally renovated in 2006, refurbished again in 2011, and also in 2017-18. Our home is consistently maintained, because a well-maintained home means a great deal to our guests and to us. Our invaluable Fripp Island friend, Lori, can assist you, if on-island assistance is required : > )
Our villa is DIRECT Oceanfront, facing east, from LR/DR/Kitchen/MBR. The Ocean Point Golf Course is on the opposite side (facing west), where the 2nd BR and ensuite bathroom are located. The split bedroom plan ensures privacy. The 2nd bedroom, with its full ensuite bathroom, is separated from the MBR, LR, and kitchen, by both a pocket door and a standard door.
The villa is situated in the North Hampton building (only 23 villas), at the quieter and sunnier tip of the island. The building has its own pool (amenity card not required), and new elevator (2016). This area of Fripp is perfect for lovers of oceanfront golf, as well as those who enjoy the magical tranquility of the ever-changing ocean. Take a brief and beautiful 2-min. walk from the villa ... to the gorgeous Ocean Point beach access, which many Fripp Islanders consider as the most beautiful of Fripp's many beach accesses.
Wi-Fi, Roku, Blu-Ray, 48' Samsung flatscreen LCD TV, down-filled chaise sofa and Lazy Boy recliner will ensure your comfort.
If you and your family wish to enjoy a carefree, nature-plentiful vacation, on a low-key, island wildlife preserve, watching dolphins, seasonal tarpon, pelicans, and sea birds, directly in front of the 3rd-floor balcony and master bedroom window, you will definitely enjoy Fripp Island.
As a nature preserve, the many deer, sea turtles and abundant wildlife are protected on the island. Fripp is a unique, nature-filled, non-commercial version of Disney World, for Grown-Ups and Children :>) What separates Fripp from other islands is that, once a family comes for vacation, Fripp often becomes a Generational, Family Vacation destination.
Fripp is a private, gated island, 1½ hours from Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. Also, 15 minutes from Fripp, is the historical town of Beaufort, a picturesque town which is rated as one of the top 10 places to retire by Kiplinger's magazine. Beaufort was also designated as 'Happiest Beach Town' in 2013, by Coastal Living magazine. Be sure to visit Beaufort's plentiful riverfront (intracoastal waterway) restaurants, antique stores, and excellent historical tours.
This unique island offers an ever-changing shoreline, pristine 3½ mile beach, which is wide, very gradually sloping, with gentle Atlantic waters. The North Hampton condo complex has its private pool, and an elevator to ALL floors. (Most Fripp homes, and other condo buildings, have AT LEAST 1 flight of stairs, even if the building has an elevator). The villa is handicapped accessible, with limitations. Also, ease of entry/exit, via the elevator, is a big plus.
Guests may also enjoy additional oceanfront pools, to include a second pool close to our building - Ocean Point pool - near the beach access - (bring your Amenity Cards, to gain entry); or, the mid-island Beach Club; and the south-end Cabana Club, with a heated pool/hot tub/kiddie pool/and lagoon pool with waterfalls and mist cave.
Other highlights include 2 highly rated championship golf courses (Ocean Point, steps from front door); miles of nature-filled bike trails; tennis; rentals of boats, kayaks, golf carts, mopeds, wave runners, and backwater skiffs; fishing and crabbing; dolphin cruises; ocean seining; Family Night with the Naturalist. Or, relax in a beach chair with a good book, and a tranquil and endless ocean view. Fripp has all you could wish for, to provide you with a safe family vacation, far from congestion and the typically busy lifestyle.
