Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our Oceanfront villa is located steps from the island's best beach, and convenient to many island amenities. Sip your morning coffee or evening cocktail on the patio as you enjoy the peaceful sounds of the Atlantic ocean, right outside your door. Enjoy spectacular ocean front views from the kitchen and living area and master bedroom. Most importantly, unlike most Fripp Properties, if that ocean view makes you feel compelled to walk out onto the beach, you can do so in just a few steps.

Our villa has recently been remodeled throughout and provides guests with all the comforts of home. There is a full kitchen, laundry, dining area, living room and 1/2 bath on ground level. Upstairs are a master bedroom with king sized bed, a second bedroom with two twin beds and two full baths. The living room couch is a sleeper sofa. As our guest, you have access to the swimming pool used only by the residents of our condo association.

Amenity cards are available for purchase. The amenities include several pools, golf, tennis, all on-island dining, nature programs, children's activities, bike rentals, a marina and more.

All of Fripp Island is a private, gated community near Beaufort, South Carolina. Only residents and guests have access. We have no high rises to spoil the natural beauty of the low country, so wildlife is very abundant here! Our island is home to egrets, herons, pelicans, osprey, turtles, and many friendly deer. Dolphins play in the waters that surround the island.

Explore our island by golf cart, bicycle, scooter, or perhaps a leisurely walk along one of the many nature paths. For more adventure, explore the island inlets by kayak, wave runner, or a pontoon cruise. Throw a fishing line or crab net into our salt water creeks or inlets. Links Magazine has recently named Fripp Island Resort one of the '100 Best Golf Resorts in North America.'

Tennis lovers will enjoy both clay and hard courts, just across the street from our villa. Clinics and daily drills are available. You can be as busy as you like or choose to do nothing but relax and enjoy the beautiful beach, right outside your door.

Of course, if all of this nature and relaxation get to be too much, there are several day trip options! Just across the bridge from Fripp is Hunting Island State Park. Historic Beaufort, Savannah and Charleston are all easy day visits. Just over an hour away, in Bluffton, are enough outlet stores and upscale shopping, to please even the most serious shopper.

Our families have enjoyed vacations on Fripp Island for many years. We are excited to offer this experience to others. Have we tempted you?

About The Owner

This villa is co-owned by two families, who had five children between them. Those children are now teenagers and young adults.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Our families had vacationed at Fripp and found it a very special experience. Some of the children learned to ride bikes here, and all of us have enjoyed safely bicycling wherever we wanted on Fripps pathways and private roads. And of course there were the golf cart/nature viewing rides around the island. We wanted to continue to enjoy vacations at Fripp Island and to be able to make the same opportunity available for others.

What makes this villa unique

Our beachfront location, unlike other parts of the island, has beach during high and low tide making it the perfect spot. We have sat and visited with grandparents on the patio while watching the little ones play a few steps away in the sand, and enjoyed the sounds of the waves and the cooling ocean breezes while relaxing in the evening over a glass of wine. Because of the way our patio is situated it has a good deal of privacy, yet we enjoy proximity to many things. Within steps you can cross over to the beach, or you can walk to the villa's pool. If you are on the resort guest card program, the Fripp Island Beach Club, and island 'hub' with restaurants, pools, entertainment are less than a five minute walk away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our first time at Fripp - we truly love it. We have converted to Fripp from Hilton Head - especially if you want a relaxing, no pressure, back to nature, easy experience. . . .Ocean view was great - thanks for offering your place to people who want to spend a week or so in paradise. Hope to be back in 2011.

What a great place to stay! The condo has an ideal location - a good view of the ocean

and the beach is easily accessible. In addition, there is a pool a few steps away. The condo is well furnished with the necessities and is very comfortable. The property manager who is the owner was exceptionally good in managing our stay.

convenient and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property on our first trip to Fripp Island. We will be back! We met another couple coming in their own vehicle. The rental was in my name and they weren't listed as guests. They had some initial difficulty getting their parking pass but it was quickly resolved with a call to the security gate from the villa owner Kelly Stoks. Be sure to list the owners of additional vehicles coming to the property.

The condo has everything you need. The kitchen is small, but perfectly functional. I set off the smoke alarm cooking bacon-- open the front door if searing/frying foods or if possible, pre-cook those ingredients at home and bring them with you:)

Great views, easy beach access, comfortable furniture, friendly island deer, fantastic water pressure in the showers--- we loved it all! We will rent this

property again.

We celebrated a big birthday at the Saltus River Grill in Beaufort-- pricey, but worth it!! Beautifully plated, delicious food, lovely setting on the waterfront park.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean and owner is so easy to work with. Beautiful view with easy beach access. Fripp Island is a lil slice of heaven to enjoy with your family. Park your car, grab a golf cart and/or a bike and enjoy your time! The beach is great and there are lots of activities to do if you are interested. Just FYI It is a first floor condo but both bathrooms are upstairs.
