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.
Pool / Spa

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
We absolutely enjoy every part of our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed all the outdoor deck space the house provided. The outdoor shower made trips back from the beach a breeze! The beach access is very close to the house. It is just a short walk or golf cart ride. The host, Joell was very helpful and kind! Overall the house was very welcoming and comfortable. We would love to come stay again. It is our favorite house on the island that we’ve stayed in!
Annual Fripp Vacation
Fripp is a great island for a vacation.
This rental was nice. Would have liked a gas grill.
Owners were very nice to work with.
Nice get away, not so nice golf cart experience
Fripp is a wonderful place for a quiet and peaceful vacation. We had a few issues with our golf cart however. First of all the cart we had reserved (a month prior to our trip) from CCC was NEVER delivered. With 10 people, we really needed 2. The first few days required several back and forth trips to the beach. CCC continually promised to deliver the cart but never did. After almost 3 full days the home owner did have a cart delivered from another company. We just lost out on those 3 days. I would never consider using CCC and after reading their reviews I understand others had the same issue. On the first full day of having a second golf cart, one was taken while we were at the pool! I reported it to security and the homeowner. We were never contacted by security or given help resolving the issue. We were told it is a very common occurrence since the carts look alike and are all keyed the same. Still no help when you are left without a cart. We found what we thought was our cart later that evening at the pool so we did finally have a second cart but not because of help from security. We 'marked" our cart by leaving a ribbon tided to it. I would recommend marking your cart if you rent one. Take bug spray too! Mosquitoes are savage! Several were even in the downstairs apartment shower. We will return to Fripp in the future only this time we will be better prepared for these type of mishaps. You don't want to spend vacation dealing with any issues but Fripp is wonderful!
Lovely home in a perfect location
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😍👌
