Description from owner

Watch the dolphins frolic and the shrimp boats sailing in the distance from our beautiful Fripp Island oceanfront - beachfront villa! We have just finished a 2015 major renovation project which includes a new state of the art Carrier Coastal Edition heating and air conditioning system, a new stainless steel refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher as well as 2 new flat screen TVs. Add to that a new ceiling and a fresh coat of paint from top to bottom and you're talking about heaven at the beach! And, for 2016 we have just added a new Serta Perfect Sleeper queen size mattress set to our oceanfront bedroom!

Welcome to the beautiful, private island paradise known as Fripp Island. With three and one-half miles of pristine, unspoiled beaches that offer sand dollars, seashells, hermit crabs, and starfish galore, Fripp Island is the perfect place to leave your worries behind! This 3000 acre gated resort is host to such diverse wildlife as deer, herons, pelicans, osprey, egrets, alligators, and occasional loggerhead turtles. Fripp's stunning natural beauty is evident all around and it is obvious why Hollywood chose to film 'Forrest Gump,' 'The Jungle Book,' and 'The Prince of Tides' on Fripp Island!

Besides its uncrowded beautiful beaches, the island hosts a unique variety of amenities. For the avid golfer, Fripp offers two exceptionally beautiful and challenging courses. One was designed by George Cobb and features spectacular oceanfront views (the 18th hole is located just steps away), while the other was designed by PGA champion Davis Love III.

Fisherman can spend their time along the meandering tidal creeks catching abundant fish, shrimp, and blue crabs. For the shopper, there are numerous shops and boutiques on the island offering everything from casual wear and souvenirs to grocery items.

Guests have a choice of 5 different restaurants on the island (The Ocean Point Grill is located across the lane). As our guests, 2 amenity membership cards are included in the price as are all taxes and cleaning fees - NO HIDDEN CHARGES! There are numerous swimming pools on the island (one of them heated year round) that overlook the ocean. One of these is just steps away!

There are 8 soft and 2 hard surface tennis courts for your enjoyment as well as jogging, bike and roller blade trails, and scenic nature paths. You can also rent boats, jet skis, kayaks, golf carts, bikes, mopeds, or book a seat on one of the regularly scheduled excursion boats for dolphin watching, shelling, and exploring!

Come stay in our charming 1st floor villa complete with palm trees and stunning ocean views from both your bedroom and living room! Our condo was rated 'Excellent' by the Fripp Island Resort. The breakfast nook overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard featuring gas grills and tables surrounded by banana plants and hibiscus.

Our villa features a large, comfortable living room and dining room area, a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook, a large bedroom with queen sized bed, bathroom, patio, and parking garage. It also has a fold down, queen sized Murphy bed in the living room.

For the comfort of our guests, our unit is 'No Smoking' and 'No Pets'.

Fripp Island is located just 25 minutes from historic Beaufort, 45 minutes from Hilton Head, one hour from Savannah, and one and one-half hours from Charleston for those of you who love horse drawn carriage tours, unique shopping, historic sightseeing, and all types of dining - from casual to elegant!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We love this beautiful place. This was our third time staying here. Our 3 year old is so blessed to have these amazing life experiences. The sun, sand, ocean, pools, rides in the golf cart, deer, dolphins, and beautiful scenery. The view from the condo is amazing! Thank you Steven & Lynn for sharing your condo with us. These memories will always be with us.

"The 'OASIS' was very correctly named - close to everything yet a very private getaway! Great view and respite from kitchen work detail. The girls loved all the events held on Fripp Island. The sandbars were fun to walk out to and pick up shells. Loved your place!" Kaye & Girls

PS...The next morning after we got home the girls woke up and said "I thought I would wake up to that wonderful ocean view."

Our family decided we needed a vacation. We were looking to relax and spend time together and that's exactly what we did. We could get used to this view! We made so many special memories and I believe we have found a place that we could come back to year after year! The owners were so nice and helpful and since we decided to go at the last minute this was VERY much appreciated. The condo had everything from a blender, to paper towels, to beach chairs, to laundry detergent! The location is at the northern end of the island where a golf cart is a MUST. Park your car for the week and have fun exploring! There is beach access within steps, although not always a beach, depends on the tide so the golf cart is SUPER for finding your favorite, we really LOVED the Flying Fish beach! Thank you! Shelby, Jeff & Tasha

Our Family has been coming to Fripp Island since 1994. We've enjoyed the condo, beautiful view of the ocean, beautiful weather, and the beauty of Fripp! This has been a very relaxing time. We needed it! Thank you the Watts

"Dear Steve & Lynn, Thank you for sharing your peaceful condo with us! We loved the tranquil colors, the bird sculptures, the mural - all the reflective attention to detail. And Fripp Island is an exquisite island. We enjoyed coffee overlooking the ocean. This morning we watched 2 osprey fishing. Awesome! May you be showered with blessings." Christina & Philip

Steven and Lynn, Just wanted to thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us last week. I have never enjoyed a beach vacation as much as this one! The condo was so nice and was in a gorgeous location and I can't say enough good things about the island. I came home with over 800 pictures on my phone if that's any indication of how beautiful I thought it was. It was so relaxing and unlike any other beach we've ever been to, you are so fortunate to live there. We absolutely want to come back next summer and hopefully many more to come. Again thank you for a relaxing, rejuvenating, wonderful week. Sincerely, Jamie and Tracey

Had a very enjoyable stay in your condo - the unit is comfortable and cozy. A great place to enjoy the views of the sunrise and sunset over the ocean. We also watched dolphins play right in front of us - while drinking our morning coffee! It is right on the beach - we were able to step off the deck and take long walks - we walked out to a sand island at low tide that was about 500 feet from the beach. We could not have had a more relaxing time. Hope to come back next year
