Overview

About the property

2 Bed, 2.5 bath oceanfront Condo w/fully stocked kitchen, and glorious views!

Welcome to “Sunspot”, a newly renovated beachfront condominium on beautiful Fripp Island. Sunspot is in the Captain John Fripp Villas, centrally located on the Island, with the very best stretch of beach – whether at high tide or low! Unlike public beaches, such as Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach, Fripp Island is secluded and serene. Even during the high season, the beach is not too crowded to spread out a family’s worth of towels, chairs, coolers and umbrellas, and still have room to build a sandcastle! The condo has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms upstairs. Wake to expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean. The master bedroom (which has the ocean view) has a stunning queen bed and an en suite bath. The guest room has a full bed and a twin bed with a trundle. The additional full bath is just off the hallway. Each bedroom has a new flat screen television, and the guest room t.v. has a DVD player built in! There is ample closet space and plenty of storage for clothes in chests of drawers in each room.

The first floor includes a laundry room with washer and dryer. We do provide a small supply of washing detergent upon your arrival. The kitchen is fully equipped, with plates, glasses, flatware, cookware and utensils, with a dishwasher for your convenience. There is a half bath on the first floor (not available in many of the two bedroom condos); a dining area which can seat up to eight; and a comfortable den with a stylish sleeper sofa and a brand new 60” flat screen television for your viewing pleasure. Right outside the sliding glass door is a patio with a charcoal grill and comfy chairs for relaxing. Parents can sip coffee in the morning, or cocktails in the evening, and enjoy the ocean vista while small children cavort on the grassy yard directly behind the villa. The newly constructed boardwalk to the white sand beach is just steps away. The John Fripp Villas complex has a private pool for residents and guests, if one wants to take a fresh water dip or just relax in the sun without the sand!

Located 19 miles east of Beaufort, South Carolina, Fripp is a private, 3000 acre nature preserve, which boasts two spectacular golf courses; a Racquet club with eight Fast-Dry clay courts and two hard courts; 7 pools; a full-service Marina; land and water rentals including golf carts, bicycles, mopeds, Carolina Skiffs and kayaks; and guided trips on the “Fripper II”, the Island pontoon cruiser. There are six restaurants on the island, as well as the “Beach Club Food Court”, serving everything from fine dining to burgers and chicken fingers. There are also several fun “watering holes” for the adults to enjoy!

One can enjoy a lovely beach vacation at Fripp simply playing in the sand and surf, biking, hiking, fishing, and visiting with family and friends in a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. However, in order to use the restaurants, rent equipment, play golf or tennis, or use the various pools on the island (other than the private pool at our Villas), anyone over the age of twelve must have an amenities card. When you rent “Sunspot” for the week, we provide two amenities cards with your rental. Additional cards can be purchased through us, and picked up with your two complimentary cards upon your arrival on the island. The cost is $35.00 per person during the fall/winter and $50.00 per person during the summer or “high” season. This is a weekly rate.

Fripp Island is just a short distance from the historic towns of Beaufort and Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia. One can easily visit any or all three of these fabulous and charming locations to enjoy antiquing, historic tours, retail shopping, and elegant dining. Many blockbuster movies such as “The Big Chill”, “The Prince of Tides”, “Forest Gump”, and “The Jungle Book” have been filmed in the area because it provides the perfect combination of natural beauty, historic significance, and innate Southern charm.

About Libby Macuch

We are a large family, with five children , and two grandchildren! My husband and I both grew up in Augusta, GA, where we still reside.

Libby Macuch purchased this condo in 2015

Why Libby Macuch chose Low Country & Resort Islands

We purchased this condo after coming to Fripp for many years to visit relatives who own a home on the island. We wanted to have a little spot of our own, so that we and our children could enjoy the fun and excitement of having a 'place at the beach'. We really love the feeling of comfort and privacy that comes with being in a gated community, where security and safety are of utmost priority. We love the abundant wildlife that roams the island, the friendliness of both residents and visitors, and the quiet, laid-back atmosphere that comes with a smaller, more intimate island setting.

What makes this condo unique

'Sunspot' is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach at Fripp. Watching the sunrise from the Master bedroom, or from the patio, is simply spectacular! Deer frequently meander and graze right by our back door, and the variety of birds and sea creatures one might see in the course of a day is simply innumerable! We have appointed our beach home with all of the comforts and amenities that we enjoy for ourselves. It is our hope that visitors will find it the perfect place for families, couples, or small groups of dear friends to relax, reconnect, and unwind. We would love for folks who stay in our home to return year after year, and to make memories at Fripp which will last a lifetime!

Amazing Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

It was so convenient to be close to the pool, the beach, and the beach club. Everything in the condo was clean and everything we needed was there. We really enjoyed the extra touches of kids DVDs, sand toys, beach chairs, beach towels, and games for the whole family. The owner has really thought of everything. We also loved feeding and petting the deer that came to the patio everyday. We also really enjoyed the nature center on the island!!

Perfect location for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my wife for mothers day with a relaxing weekend and we did exactly that. Libby made sure we had everything we needed and we really felt at home in the beautiful condo. We will be returning for more and have found our new beach home away from home!

Owner's Response: I am so very glad that you and your sweet family enjoyed Sunspot on Mother's Day weekend. You were just a delight to coordinate with, and I loved having you as my guests. When I sent a text asking how your visit was going, you sent the MOST BEAUTIFUL picture of your wife and two precious daughters on the beach. I will do my best to keep the villa updated and comfortable, so that it will be a pleasant place for all of us to stay on Fripp! I do hope you will have an opportunity to come back again soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with family on Fripp Island for the week. The rental condo was really nice for me, my wife, sister, and her husband. We had 10 other family members staying nearby. The location of this unit is perfect in the center of the island and ocean front. Everything is quick and easy to get to with a car, golf cart, bike, or just walk to, including the multiple pools and food.

Libby, the owner was excellent to work with! She was very nice, informative, answered questions, and her follow-up is better than any owner I have ever rented from.

We would highly recommend this rental because of the whole experience. The interior is well kept, clean, and has everything you need.

A Great Place to Stay on Fripp

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo. Clean and well maintained with modern furnishings. Beds were comfortable, too. The little touches were nice, with fluffy towels and wash cloths folded decoratively on the beds when we arrived. It's obvious the owners love their villa and want their renters to have a great experience. Fripp is amazing with such a wide variety of wildlife. We had deer looking into the living room from the yard in front of our patio a couple of times. Loved it! We would definitely rent this villa again. Libby was a pleasure to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We really do want our guests to feel very comfortable, and to enjoy clean and well appointed accommodations. We will strive to maintain our villa so that it is a great place for our family and our guests to enjoy a beach vacation. We certainly hope you will come back to stay with us again! The "high" season in the summer is great, but the Fall and Spring seasons are often warm and welcoming, with less crowds and lower rates! All our best to you!

Perfect location, great experience!

  • 5 of 5

"Sunspot" really is a "Sweet spot". Libby was a perfect hostess, keeping in touch with us, and making sure everything was taken care of before, during and after our stay. The villa was spotless and beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was very well equipped. There were chairs, umbrella, toys, etc. for the beach. Inside, there were movies, books, and games for family entertainment. We were very glad that amenities cards were available with this villa (two of them were provided free with our rental). Of course, the oceanfront view was amazing! We could watch the sunrise from our bedroom! We had a great time, and will definitely be going back to Sunspot soon - probably in the Fall!
