About the property

Creek/Marsh View, Walk Or Ride To Beach, 3 Bed W/ Balconies, 3 Bath, HDTV, Wi-fi

Welcome to Sunset Tides! This Lowcountry home was featured on an episode of HGTV's Beachfront Bargain Hunt (Season 10, Episode 13-A Future on Fripp Island, SC). The 1633 sq. ft., 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom Charleston-style row house sleeps up to eight guests. The living room and master bedroom have screened-in porches overlooking Old House Creek, the marsh, and beautiful sunsets. View dolphins and a variety of other wildlife from your balcony! There are also balconies complimenting the other guest rooms with views of Fripp Island Marina. The master bathroom includes a large jetted tub. The living room, kitchen and dining are open for easy entertaining. After a fun day at the beach enjoy your favorite beverage in the back yard while grilling dinner, playing foosball or tossing a game of cornhole.

Sunset Tides is the perfect place for visitors looking to spend their days at the beach, biking around the island, and exploring the local charm of the area. Amenity Cards are not available with this property. While the waterfront property does not have pool access, the beach is less than a 5 minute bike or golf cart ride*. Hunting Island State Park, Historic Beaufort, The Shrimp Shack, Johnson’s Tavern, the Foolish Frog, and numerous roadside stands, are just a few of the local attractions and restaurants within short distance of the island home. Book a round of golf at one of several courses in the Beaufort area.

Enjoy the beautiful beaches of Fripp Island and everything that the lowcountry has to offer!

*There are bikes for you to use while on Fripp. Golf carts are available for you to rent from local vendors such as Carolina Custom Golf Carts (843-322-3230) and Sutcliffe Golf Carts (843-524-6502). We suggest you reserve your golf cart early as they typically rent out quickly.

About Todd Stewart

Kristy and I met in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and married on Hilton Head Island. I am from Morgantown, WV and attended WVU for athletic training while Kristy grew up in Beatrice, NE and attended the University of Nebraska Kearney for travel and tourism. Bluffton, SC is now home which is only one hour from Fripp Island. I am a teacher and athletic trainer at a local high school and Kristy is a communications director at a country club on Hilton Head Island.

Todd Stewart purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd Stewart chose Fripp Island

Kristy and I fell in love with Fripp Island during our first visit on a short vacation trip in October 2014. We began searching for a home during this same vacation and purchased the home before the end of the year. This home has panoramic creek and marsh views and is a short walk or golf cart ride to the beach. We love being able to take walks on the beach in the morning and watch sunsets from our private balcony in the evening. This home offers the best of the Lowcountry-natural beauty, relaxation, charm, and fun. It is the perfect place to enjoy with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Fripp Island and the area offer a variety of outdoor activities and beautiful, natural scenery. The miles of wide, sandy beaches are perfect for sunbathing and enjoying a cold beverage, splashing in the waves, and playing bocci or catch. The character of the area is a perfect representation of casual Lowcountry living. It is also always exciting to see dolphins swimming in the creek just beyond the home's back yard. One of our favorite memories was watching the Fripp Island Holiday Boat Parade from our new home's balcony. No matter the time of year, this home is a great place for vacation memories.

Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at your house on Fripp Island. It was our first time and we decided we wanted to stay at a new place and we are VERY glad we did! We loved riding bikes, using the golf cart, and easy access to the beach. We saw so many deer and loved to sit on the back porch at night and watch the sunset! Would definitely recommend if you love wildlife and a nice community!

Ideal place to find your Zen factor!

  • 5 of 5

The house offers spectacular views of an amazingly tranquil space. The house was clean and offered most all the comforts of home. The kitchen was well-equipped. The golf cart is a must have for exploring all Fripp has to offer. The bicycle trails are also great! I have never seen so many deer, apt to approach as you travel the island. I could not have asked for a better weekend getaway! We hope to come back in the future. Our first trip to Fripp Island was memorable and very pleasant, especially those evening sunsets. Thank you!

I absolutely love this property and the view. It is clean, simple, perfectly decorated and inviting. I look so forward to going back and staying at this precious beach cottage again soon. Our family truly enjoyed every minute. I also appreciated the kindness of the renters. They went out of their way to make sure we had all of the information necessary to have a great week!!
