Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We are a large family, with children ranging in age from 32 to 12, and two grandchildren! My husband and I both grew up in Augusta, GA, where we still reside.

Why the Owner Chose Fripp Island, SC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
'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!
