About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Look no further!! We are in the center of it all AND you can have it all- beach and canal!! This house is truly the best location on the island and allows easy access to all the island's activities! We are a canal front home with a private dock, across the street from the beach, next to the tennis courts, across the street from olympic pool and shopping! We are less than a 100 yards from the beach access which has sand regardless of the tide! (This is an incredible bonus considering some the beach front homes don't have any beach during high tide or have a huge hike to actually get to the water) We also have 2 golf carts included in the rental!! We now have WiFi!! Perfect home!

Once you visit our home you will want to return! This home has generations of love and laughter. It has an open floor plan so you can talk to the chef while sitting on the back porch overlooking the marsh! Downstairs you can follow a family tradition and have an oyster roast in the fire pit!
ADVENTURE/ACTIVITIES: If you feel the need to venture further, you can take one of the four seater golf carts INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL and go to two different wonderful golf courses, a marina, five different restaurants, several pools, and a fitness center!

You can also explore the island on the quiet roads and extensive bike trails. There is a lot of wild life to be seen including alligators, pelicans, osprey, dolphins, crabs, and a lot of deer! There are also many great shells to be found on the beach. It is like your own little mini zoo!

If you wish to get intimately involved with wildlife, you can bring home dinner by going crabbing and fishing off our dock. You can also bring your boat and launch it at the marina or another close public launch.

Fripp also offers Camp Fripp, a children's recreation center where the kids can explore the island while mom and dad golf, play tennis, or just sit by the pool. There are organized activities for the older kids as well.

ISLAND FACTS: Fripp Island is a pristine 3000 acre private, gated island 19 miles outside of Beaufort, South Carolina. The island has three and a half miles of beautiful beaches. Several movies have been filmed on the island including Forrest Gump, Jungle Book, and The Prince of Tides. The authors Pat Conroy and Cassandra King choose to call the island home.

HOUSE INFO: This four bedroom, two bathroom home has an outdoor covered porch and an enclosed sunroom. There is a king in one room upstairs and a queen in the other room. Downstairs, one room has a double and a twin and the other has a queen. The pull out queen is in the sunroom which has a door to shut it off from the rest of the house. ALL OF THE ROOMS NOW HAVE A TV!!! There is a wonderful view of the canal with a private dock. Downstairs there is a screen porch with an enclosed charcoal grill, a ping pong table, and of course a washer and dryer. The kitchen has all of the essentials and then some. The downstairs bathroom has been remodeled and updated. You will surely want to enjoy it!

The house was originally intended to be a fishing camp. The downstairs was going to be for all my Grandpa's rowdy friends. The upstairs was supposed to be for the more refined guests! That being said - YOU HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE TO GO FROM THE UPSTAIRS ROOMS TO THE DOWNSTAIRS ROOMS. Some people find this charming. Some find it bewildering. I like to escape downstairs!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1965

About: This house was built by my grandprents in the 1960's. It has been a family haven ever since. My parents own it now. We have family vacations there once a year where we boat, swim, crab, bike, golf cart and get into all sorts of trouble!! I rent the house for them and remember visiting my Grandmother there when I was a kid. She made the craziest food and we had to eat it without complaining! I still can't eat cold soup!! We have so many family memories there, it is a vital part of our lives. We love it when people rent the house and develop some of their own memories!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This map doesn't show the canal for some reason. it is there right behind the house! Fripp Island is like any other place in the world. It is an experience you won't forget!!
