Description of the Fripp Island vacation cottage rental
The "Loveshack" is centrally located on the island, tucked in a lovely enclave amid the Ocean Creek golf course. It is just a short walk or golf cart ride to the marina, the Ocean Creek Golf clubhouse, the Cabana Club and one of the most popular stretches of beach. The upstairs Master bedroom features a queen bed, vaulted ceiling with skylights and ceiling fan, television, drawer storage, large closet, French doors opening to a private balcony and a private bath with jetted tub and shower. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, each with a private bath and television. The downstairs guest bedroom has two queen beds, drawer storage, closet, access to the lower balcony and a full bath with shower. The Downstairs Master bedroom has a queen bed, bath with tub and shower, drawer storage, closet, television, access to downstairs balcony, and attached laundry room. Large living/dining area, screened -in porch, cute back patio for relaxing! There is an outdoor shower for rinsing beach sand and salt residue off of bodies and bathing suits before entering the cottage. A fully equipped kitchen makes preparing full meals for the family a breeze. There is a lovely screened in porch, with a swing and two rocking chairs, for relaxing in the evening with a cocktail or a book (or both) without worrying about pesky insects spoiling the outdoor enjoyment. Along with linens, towels and all kitchen accessories, we provide a starter supply of bar soaps, dishwashing detergents (both for hand and machine washing), clothes washing detergent and paper supplies. We have an automatic drip coffeemaker and a Weber Grill at the cottage. We have a toaster, but no waffle iron. One would need to buy some charcoal for the grill. We use match light, and it works well. We have several beach chairs and a beach umbrella, available for your use. There are beach chairs and umbrellas for rent on the beach behind the Fripp Island Club resort as well, if you are enjoying the beach at that location.
Fripp Island Resort has an Amenity Guest Passes policy. One can certainly enjoy the beach, the wildlife, hiking, biking, daytrips to nearby Hunting Island state park, the quaint shops and restaurants of Frogmore, and Historic Beaufort without amenities cards. Also, our full kitchen makes cooking complete meals for the family in the cottage easy and convenient. So, amenities cards are not an absolute necessity. However, in order to use the resort restaurants, rent equipment, play golf or tennis or use the resort pools, anyone thirteen years of age or older, must have an amenities card. Anyone under thirteen must be accompanied by an adult with an amenities card. We do provide two free amenities cards with the weekly (seven night) rental of our condo. Additional cards can be purchased, through us, if desired. The cost for a weekly card (5-8 days) is $50.00 each during the summer (May 22-September 5, 2015) and $35.00 for a Four Day Card (1-4 days). During the rest of the year, the cost for Weekly cards is $35.00 and the cost for Four Day Cards is $25.00. The cards must be purchased through a member of the Club.
There are seven resort pools on the island. Sometimes folks don't take advantage of all of them, so don't forget (if you have amenities cards) that you do have options for swimming, other than the great Atlantic Ocean. A favorite pastime, for adults and kids alike, is crabbing. There are several spots on the island where this can be done. One just needs a bucket, a net, some strong twine and some bait! Of course, there are miles of bike/walking paths throughout the island, as well as a couple of playgrounds.
There is a large chalk board posted in front of the Fripp Island Club, on which they post activities for kids, families, etc., on a weekly basis. There are boat excursions, deep sea fishing tours, etc. available through the marina. Of course, there are two superb golf courses and plenty of tennis courts available for sports lovers. Also, we have a notebook on the coffee table of the cottage, in which I have put lots of information about activities available on the island.
The Cabana Club (just a short distance from the cottage) has three pools, including a fun “kiddie pool”. There is also an adult beverage bar and a grille, which serves various lunch items. This is a very popular spot on the island. Also a short golf cart ride away, is the Beach Club. There is an adult only pool there, the "SandBar" for adult beverages, an Olympic pool, which is surrounded by a couple of shops, the Fitness Center, a childrens' pool, a "sit down" restaurant for dinner, the Beach Club Food Court (which offers all kinds of kid/family friendly food) as well as soft serve ice cream, Starbucks coffee, sandwiches, smoothies, etc. The Raquet Club is right across from the Beach Club, and the golf courses are very close by.

Area Information
Fripp Island is the most seaward of the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina. Located halfway between Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia along the coast, it is locally positioned between Hunting Island State Park to the north and Pritchards Island to the southwest. A wide marsh and estuarine system separates these islands from the larger St. Helena's Island to the northwest. The upland acreage of the island is approximately 3,000 acres (12 km2). Fripp has approximately three miles of beachfront along the Atlantic. Aside from the many activities available on Fripp Island, the surrounding Beaufort area provides many additional attractions. Beaufort's National Historic Landmark District, in the second oldest city in South Carolina, delights its visitors with its breathtakingly beautiful natural vistas and impressive architecture from the Colonial and Antebellum Eras. Beaufort remains the Queen of the South Carolina Sea Islands in its charm, natural beauty, fascinating history, and rich and diverse cultural heritage.

Other area attractions include the lighthouse, pier, and beaches of Hunting Island State Park. Located between Fripp Island and Harbor Island on US 21, this popular park is a large secluded barrier island with a historic 1859 lighthouse as its centerpiece and a semi-tropical abundance of plants and wildlife. The Hunting Island Light is the island's third lighthouse and is open to the public.

History is an area attraction, as omni-present as the Spanish moss draped over the limbs of the live oaks. The Penn Center, Parris Island Museum, and Beaufort Museum are but a few of the places for a visitor to begin. Between the natural beauty of the Fripp Island Lowcountry setting and all the first class amenities offered by the Fripp Island Club, you can enjoy many exciting activities without ever leaving the island.
