Property description

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 a screened in porch 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 two adult bikes and three children's bikes for you to use while on Fripp. The golf cart rental fee is only $15/night for rental periods of 7 nights or less through T & K Rental, LLC. Different rates apply for rentals of more than 7 nights. Please confirm in your inquiry if you would like to add or decline the golf cart rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Creek, Bonito Boathouses (Fripp Island, SC, USA):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
