About the property

Fripp Island Beach Vacation Home, 5 Bedrooms/5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15), free WiFi

Footprints in the Sand, professionally designed and decorated with new furnishings and appliances....was designed for our family. Footprints has sweeping ocean/beach and wildlife views from every room and only a minute walk to one of the best beach access on the Island! You can even see the beach from all floors! I've tried to include all the features in our home that I thought were missing when we were renters. This spacious showcase home sits across from the Atlantic Ocean!

All you have to pack is your personal items....we provide the rest. Your weekly rental includes a free golf cart, bikes for all ages, beach chairs, beach towels, beach tote, upgraded linens and toiletries like a hotel (shampoo, shower gel, soap and shower cap). Up to four amenity cards are also included with your weekly rental. We've totally renovated our home with new family room pieces, new sleeper sectional, stainless refrigerator and mini fridge, dishwasher, all new comforters, pillows along with other new furnishings throughout the house!

Our beloved author, Pat Conroy’s wife/author, Cassandra King, and her 'Same Sweet Girls' group have stayed in our home several times and loved it!

Many of our guests say this is 'The Best' house they have ever rented on Fripp! See our guest comments.....

- Across the street from the ocean with 1-2 minute walk...easy access to the best part of the beach with beach all day long! We're at one of the nicest beach accesses on the Island...beach access #1 with a new walkway perfect for strollers. You don't have to walk thru dunes or on a boardwalk...just step onto the beach! Don't be fooled by very crowded 'center island' or Tarpon locations,with no room to spread out...our beach access provides privacy with 24/7 beach!

- Front of our home boasts expansive ocean views, rear of house has panoramic overlooks of the five star 'Ocean Point' golf course! You get the best of both worlds....

- Balconies off all bedrooms with huge decks on front and back of house. Every bdrm has an ocean view and it's own bath. Enjoy sunrise, sunsets or just sun bathing!

- I designed and built our home for our own family to use for the holidays so the home is designed with an exceptional floor plan with Master on main, huge Master bath and walk-in closet. Master has been upgraded with custom drapes, posturpedic bedding, 400 thread count sheets, new

hypo- allergenic pillows,flat screen t.v. and seamless tile shower for total luxurious comfort! The home has also been upgraded with hotel quality linens & towels.

- First floor offers an inviting open plan perfect for family gatherings...with kitchen overlooking dining room and family room. Dining area opens onto back deck overlooking the golf course! Master is on the main floor, is handicap accessible and boasts an expansive bath with ocean views.

- Family room, has 20'ceilings with enormous 2-story bay windows that look out to the 5-star 'Ocean Point' golf course, lagoon and amazing wildlife! Footprints also sits next to a private lot that has become a bird sanctuary, perfect for you bird watchers.

- No matter where you are on the first floor, you can be a part of the conversation while enjoying the ocean breeze and smelling the Island's scent!

- Lots of places to retreat for quiet moments and the kids can enjoy our Game Room equipped with a foosball table, T.V./DVD with hook ups for Play Station, X-box etc and a huge chalk board wall for the little ones to draw their masterpieces!

- Create amazing meals while smelling and hearing the ocean through the large windows in the kitchen. Kitchen is well-equipped with stainless double ovens, lots of counter space and a new stainless french door refrigerator and extra mini refrig for added grocery storage!

- Enjoy meals cooked on the commercial grill and served outdoors on the large glass table (seats 6-8 in addition to another table that seats four) while overlooking the 8th fairway and wildlife!

- Upstairs has four comfy bedrooms, each with a uniquely appointed beach decor!

- Two bedrooms face the ocean each with Queen beds and jack and jill baths. One of the Queen bedrooms has an additional twin bed. Both rooms open to the upper front deck looking onto the Atlantic Ocean where you can also enjoy the sunrise! A queen high quality air mattress and pack n' play are available as well.

- The other two bedrooms view the golf course and have two twins in each room along w/ jack and jill baths and private balconies to admire the ocean and sunsets as well! We manage our home like an upscale hotel, furnishing all the baths with toiletries, hotel quality towels & linens for total pampering! Our property manager lives nearby to ensure everything runs smoothly during your vacation.

'Footprints in the Sand' is a pristine home that is exceptionally decorated with a cozy beach flair and has been included in Fripp Island Resort’s 'Tour of Homes'.

Handicap-friendly and equipped with intercom/AM/FM Stereo that plays throughout the home and on the outside deck. Free WiFi is available and the yard is perfect for croquet, badminton or volley ball and the kids love to roller blade and ride bikes in our circular driveway too! One of our recent guests even had her bridal reception in the backyard overlooking the golf course and the sunset!

Come and enjoy this unbelievable vacation home!!

Footprints, both inside and out, is just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Your home is lovely, beautiful decor and beautifully furnished with amenities and items to make the stay just wonderful! We came from Dallas, Atlanta, and New York and found plenty of room for all of us to be together (11 of us!) and appreciated the privacy offered by 5 bedrooms and 5 baths. No small children in our group, youngest was 12, but we loved the "Toys"! The four bikes made it possible for groups of us to ride together and the golf cart was just wonderful. It would have been nice to have two, but we rented another so that we could all go on "excursions" together! We had several four legged visitors (the furry kind) in the yard and we all saw alligators on our bike and golf cart rides! The linens were great, mattresses were great, the furnishings lovely and comfortable, and the kitchen was furnished beautifully. We loved the porches both during the day and looking at the stars at night. Beach access was so easy and we walked the beaches every morning and every evening, amazing sunrises and sunsets! Those of us who had been to Fripp Island before had the chance to stay on "the other side' of the Island, our usual stay has been on the Marsh side. We loved the location! And those of us who were new to the Island fell in love with it! The old folks and teenagers loved it as did those in between! Something for everyone! We enjoyed the craft fair, Huntington Island, the fresh seafood, Johnson Creek Tavern (2 visits there!) and just being on the Island in general. The property was very well maintained and well described in the listing. We did not use the game room, a bit small and cool, but there was plenty of space in the house. Our only issue was that the storage space for the bikes and beach toys was locked, but one phone call and a few hours later it was opened. I would highly recommend Footprints to family and friends and I sincerely hope we can return sometime for another stay. No worries about dealing with Pat Richman, she's wonderful!

Excellent Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and had a wonderful vacation! God blessed us with perfect weather on top of your house having beautiful and peaceful surroundings. My grandchildren loved the bikes and the rest of us loved the golf cart...we also rented 3 scooters, which were a lot of fun for the big kids. The beds were so comfortable and everyone rested well. Typically I am an early riser, but even I managed to sleep in a few days due to the comfy coziness of the beds. When we left on Sunday, everyone said that is where they want to stay next year so as soon as we know what dates we can go, I will be contacting you.

A lot more than we anticipated!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The house was more like a home and was in a great location with a lovely ocean view from the top deck. All of the amenities you could think of were already there including bicycles, deck chairs, totes, toys and a golf cart plus much more with a well appointed kitchen. There is even a gas grill with a propane tank to use. Plus we got to see porpoises frolicking in the ocean, sea gulls in mass, dining on the berries from the palmetto trees and of course the many deer everywhere on the island. The beach was lovely and the golf courses looked great.
