About Joell Rickman

We have vacationed at Fripp, with extended family, for 20 years. Now we're so happy to own a home at our favorite vacation destination! Fripp Island is truly a special place to make memories.

Joell Rickman purchased this house in 2009

Why Joell Rickman chose Fripp Island

Mid-island is our favorite part of Fripp. Every beach and island amenity is within a quick bike ride, yet the privacy on this quiet street defines relaxation. The natural setting gives us lots of privacy.

What makes this house unique

We are located only four minutes from the beach for those long morning walks, and the tennis courts, olympic pool and bike path are just minutes away. Enjoy exploring the entire island by golf cart or bikes, which can all be rented through the resort.

Lovely home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this home in July 2016 with four generations of family members. My dad celebrated his 85th birthday during our stay and enjoyed time at the beach with his 3- and 5-year old great-grandsons. The separate apartment was the perfect layout for my parents to escape from the very active main house and be able to come and go without help with stairs. The apartment has a flat screen TV, large stainless steel refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. The main house is laid out well with lots of space to spread out, and a kitchen that accommodated daily extensive dinners. The bedrooms and baths are large and well appointed. The beds are very comfortable, and plenty of blankets and extra pillows are stored in the large closets.

The house is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood. A short walk/golf cart ride to the pools, bar, and restaurant and a three-minute golf cart ride to beach access on Rock Beauty Road. The yard is gorgeous - full of natural plants and beautiful trees which keep the extensive porches shady and cool. We spotted deer and raccoons, and some beautiful red tanagers in the trees in the backyard.

Save the space in your car for the trip to Fripp - you won't need beach towels, toys, or chairs - there are plenty stowed in the large outdoor storage locker. The complimentary golf cart was a nice addition - we rented a second one for our parents - and helped keep costs down.

I highly recommend this home for your Fripp vacation. Thanks to the owners for sharing your home with us - we will be back!

Our second visit to this lovely home...before and after the renovations. Before was beautiful and a delightful stay; after was even better. Love all the new porches and landscaping. So many beautiful touches. The house is spacious, clean and well appointed. Quiet location with easy access to everything. Some days we did lots and some days we did nothing. BEST beds on the island, btw! Sooo comfy. Thanks for sharing your lovely home😍👌

Beautiful Renovations

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! I stayed there many years ago and the renovations are beautiful! We were there with 4 couples and it was perfect! The downstairs apartment was great--I can't wait to go back and take my elderly relatives--this apartment will make things so much easier for them. The kitchen was well stocked and made cooking so easy. There were plenty of towels and extra sheets and blankets and the golf cart was a big bonus. Thank you again for sharing.

Labor Day!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 and three kids (6m, 2yr. & 5) just gor back from our fabulous annual beach trip. This was our first time staying in this house and visiting Fripp Island. Both were FABULOUS! The house was very spacious and having the 2 TV's were a plus when football games were on and the kiddos wanted to watch cartoons. The golf cart was a blessing for carting all the beach gear and little ones to the beach. The location was close to everything but still on a nice and quiet street with little traffic. We cooked all meals at the house and the kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of plates, pots, pans, platters and silverware. All beds were very comfortable which led to plenty of rest to tackle the next morning! I can't wait enough great things about this house and Fripp Island. We are looking forward to renting this house again!

family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We brought twelve members of our family to this beautiful home. The house had everything we needed for our stay and then some! The island provided all ages entertainment. With 12 members in our crew we had no problem cooking dinner for the crew in the wonderful kitchen. Everything was provided from beach gear to linens to kitchen neccessities. We look forward to planning future trips and by all means this will be our first choice in rental properties!

Thanks again....the deBoers, the Simmons, the Ashleys and the Browns
