This ocean front property is one of the few on Fripp Island that offers 24/ 7 beach and ocean access. There are Fantastic ocean front views from 2 master bedrooms, kitchen, family room, and spacious decks. Open floor plan.Many similiar properties have several hundred feet of sand dunes to cross or lose the beach several hours a day during high tide. You should Google any other property you are considering before making a decision.
I just relisted this property but have retained Reviews from all prior guests for this home. These are available upon request.

The linens are 450 thread count to help assure a restful night after a day of being on the beach, golfing, tennis, sightseeing or simply "getting away from it all".
Fripp Island is a 3,000-acre barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, gets its name from swashbuckling English Captain Johannes Fripp. Legend has it that pirates, including Captain Fripp, used the island as a secluded hideaway. Located 19 miles east of Beaufort, Fripp Island consists of a three and a half miles beach and wildlife sanctuary.
Our island has several pool complexes, including an Olympic pool, 3 pool complexes that are ocean front and one with waterfalls. There are clay and asphalt tennis courts, restaurants, the 2 championship golf courses and a small fitness center. Guest cards are required for acceess to these facilities and rentals from the resort although there are two places you may purchase meals without gurest cards.
The most seaward of the beautiful barrier islands of South Carolina, Fripp Island is 3000 acres of natural beauty. Designated as a Wildlife Sanctuary, more than 175 species of birds live along the ocean and Great Salt Marsh. Any given day you can spot majestic brown pelicans flying in formation or great blue herons, snowy white egrets and wood storks stalking their next meal. Among the native wildlife you’ll find raccoons, alligator and an abundance of deer, more than 250 at last count. The deer captivate young and old alike and will literally pose next to you for photographs. There are Egret and Eagle nests.
The ocean abounds in bass, trout, flounder, grouper and blue crabs. Dolphins play in the waters surrounding Fripp Island. Even the endangered loggerhead turtle makes the island a nesting ground laying as many as 125 eggs in one nest. The forests here are covered with live oaks, palmettos, pines, flowering magnolias and oleanders. The beauty of Fripp Island has been immortalized in scenes from Forrest Gump, The Prince of Tides and The Jungle Book.
