Description of the Fripp Island vacation home rental
“Ocean Creek Escape” is a custom built Charleston-style home offering spectacular panoramic views of the golf course, lagoon, and marsh. Upon arrival, you’ll immediately be impressed by the lush landscaping and large, red paver driveway. Inside, a vaulted tongue and groove ceiling with five large skylights creates a bright, airy feel in the open living area. The home has over 2,000 square feet of indoor living space; plus another 1,000 square feet of covered porches to fully enjoy the beauty and tranquility around you. Watch snowy white egrets glide over the lagoon as you relax and enjoy colorful sunset skies and marsh breezes from the spacious, mosaic-tiled back porch.

The home is tastefully furnished and decorated with a "coastal" theme. The recliner-style sofa and love seat ensure that you’ll be comfortable as you gaze out the over-sided sliding glass doors or watch a movie on the 6-speaker surround-sound 42” HDTV. The large dining area can accommodate 8 and the kitchen is well stocked with all of the pots, pans, bowls, and appliances you’ll need. Convenient seating for 4 at a breakfast bar is available as well for enjoying cereal in the morning or a quick bite at lunch.

The three queen-sized bedrooms located on the second floor are all nicely furnished and have HDTVs. Two of the bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower/tub combo while the master bedroom has a private bath with large custom-tiled shower. The twin-bedded bedroom on the 3rd floor (main living area) has a large bathroom with shower conveniently located next to it. The laundry room is equipped with a sink and new, high-efficiency/large-capacity washer and dryer.

A Pack ‘n Play (with mattress), high chair, and baby gate are available to ensure that little ones are safe and comfortable.

Enjoy large rocking chairs on the covered front porch or relax in the comfortably-cushioned rattan furniture (seating for 6) on the 2nd floor back porch. And of course, the best view is enjoyed from the covered porch on the 3rd floor where there’s seating for 6 at a bar-height table and bench.

As members of the Fripp Island Club, we may purchase resort “Guest Cards” to provide our guests with access to pools, restaurants, tennis courts, etc. All individuals 13 and older are required to have a Guest Card to enjoy club facilities. We offer TWO free (up to $100 value) Guest Cards on all weekly rentals.

Use of a 4-seat Yamaha electric golf cart is included and four beach cruiser bicycles are provided as well. Other extras include inflatable pool loungers, beach chairs (4), beach wagon, beach toys, etc. At the house, ladder toss (ladder golf) and bean bag toss (corn hole) games are great to play in either the side yards or driveway.

Weekly stays (Sat-Sat) required in the Summer, 4-night minimum stay required all other seasons. A 50% deposit and completed rental agreement is required to make a reservation with the balance due 60 days prior to arrival. Reservations must be confirmed (full payment and signed rental agreement) at least one week prior to arrival date.
Area Information
The home is located in the beautiful Ocean Creek neighborhood and close to several popular spots:

The Cabana Club, the most family-oriented pool area on Fripp Island, is only a two minute walk away. There are three pools in the complex: "toddler" pool with slide, lagoon-style pool with misting caves and waterfall, and traditional pool. Relax in a lounge chair while soaking in breathtaking marsh and ocean views or enjoy the restaurant and frozen drink facilities.

The Activity Center, only a minute’s walk away, offers activities for all ages: Camp Fripp, Arts and Crafts, Canoeing/Kayaking, Audubon Nature Trail Walk, and many more. It’s also home to a small nature center where you can meet some animals native to Fripp Island.

Davis Love Park, just three blocks away, offers playground areas for children as well as full court basketball and sand volleyball. Just across the street from the park is the Ocean Creek Golf Course, rated 4.5 stars by “Golf Digest” with scenery so breath-taking it’s been used for scenes in such movies as “Forrest Gump” and “Disney’s The Jungle Book.”

Wardle's Landing, a 5 minute walk away, is great for fishing/crabbing and catching gorgeous sunsets.

Fripp’s Island’s 3 ½ miles of unspoiled, uncrowded beaches is only a 5 minute golf cart (included with rental) ride away. Other resort facilities include the Racquet Club (10 tennis courts), Marina (boat, kayak/ canoe rental, nature/sunset cruises), miles of bicycle paths (two beach cruisers included with rental), and several restaurants. You’ll soon learn that no place is more than a short golf cart ride away on Fripp!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I wish there were 10 stars! We knew we made the right choice when we entered and the TV's had music playing, and a gift basket!! What a welcoming touch!!! The house was exactly how it was listed...AMAZING!! There were four of us and there was more than enough room!!! The location was perfect. The layout perfect. The dishes all matched!!!! That alone says how perfect the house was. We took advantage of the golf cart to see the island. The bikes for great rides. The porches for evening relaxation. You don't need to look for any other houses on the island because this should be your choice! Owners were more than accommodating with any needs and contacted us during the week to make sure all was well. To top it off, we received a post card when we got home thanking us!! A special property! We are coming back!!!!!!

The house was absolutely perfect. It backs up to the 13th hole on the Ocean Creek Golf Course. The Ocean Creek area is in the back of the Island and is quiet and low traffic. The house included almost anything you can think of to keep our 4 little ones entertained; from movies to games. The kitchen may be the most well stocked kitchen of a rental house I have ever stayed in. The owners literally thought of everything just as advertised.

We spent time at the Cabana Club which in our opinion is the best pool you will have access to. The best part is it is 150 yards from the house. It has a couple of pools including a great pool for young kids. Great views of the ocean from this pool, and a bar for a drink. The house comes with a 4 person golf cart which is great to explore the Island, head to the beach, or take the 5 minute drive to the point to watch the best sunset you can find.

In addition to the house being perfect, the owners Bob & Carol could not have been any better. They responded to our initial request very quickly, answered any questions we had leading up to our rental, and even checked on us during our stay while they were in Europe. Absolutely first class. We will definitely be back to this house in fact we are already looking for dates that we can get back to Fripp.

This beautiful home was absolutely perfect for all members of our party during our stay. Big and comfy bedrooms with awesome views made waking up feel like paradise. Very nice and well equipped kitchen and dining on upper level which made homemade meals special with the whole family and great when buying fresh local foods. Living room and patios were great for family time and relaxing, many games and large movie and book selection. Bob the owner made us feel so welcome and gave recommendations for the things important for our unique trip – thank you, Bob!

There are so many things to see and do around the island with the included golf cart and bikes — like the nature center with live animals, crafts & educational programs. My children were very impressed and happy with sunset kayaking, they learned so much and saw dolphins. The pools are gorgeous with the ocean view at the cabana club and there is a great fitness center and racquet club. Again great assortment of toys for beach, pools and even an outdoor picinic. The washer and dryer were huge and conveniently placed on main level. There was so much room to move around and yet it brought our family so close and happy. Great place to spend the holidays – great place for all ages – great place to relax and enjoy southern comfort and beauty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I don’t really know much about Fripp Island. Will I like it?
A: The island appeals most to those who enjoy natural beauty and a casual, low-key lifestyle. The entire island is a nature reserve and wildlife is everywhere – including over 350 deer that freely roam the island. If you like to eat at a different restaurant every night and/or shopping is your favorite pastime, you’ll likely be happier somewhere else such as Hilton Head.
Q: Do I need to purchase Guest Passes?
A: That all depends on what activities you plan on enjoying while you’re here. Many of the island’s amenities (pools, restaurants, tennis courts, etc.) are owned by the Fripp Island Club so anyone 13 and older needs a card to access them. As full members of the Club, we are able to purchase “Guest Passes” for those renting our home. The vast majorities of families renting during the summer months do purchase passes so they can enjoy all amenities. Ocean Creek Escape is only a two minute walk from the Cabana Club – the most popular pool complex – so you may want to factor that into your decision. Guest Passes cannot be purchased on-site, we must buy them on your behalf at least one week prior to arrival. However, if you just plan on going to the beach, riding bikes, etc. then there’s no need to purchase a Guest Pass. Also, since not all facilities (especially pools) are open year round, those renting in colder months may not elect to buy a pass.

Weekly Guest Passes are $50 per person from Memorial Day thru Labor Day and $35 per person the rest of the year. 4-Day passes are $35 from Memorial Day thru Labor Day and $25 per person the rest of the year. We offer two free Guest Passes with all weekly rentals throughout the year.
Q: Is it true that movies have actually been filmed here?
A: Absolutely. Perhaps the most well known scene is when Forrest carried the wounded “Lieutenant Dan” out of the jungle in “Forrest Gump ”(1994). This scene was filmed near what’s now the tee box area on the 5th hole of the Ocean Creek Golf Course! Hop in the golf cart and travel down Davis Love III Drive and find the bench plaque that commemorates the spot. BTW, another piece of Gump-related trivia is that the Gay Seafood Company that you passed on Sea Island as you drove to Fripp was the site where all of the shrimp boat scenes were shot. You can still see the “Miss Hilda” boat that appears in the scene where Forrest is naming his boat “Jenny.” The Marina Restaurant has lots of photos that were taken during filming of the movie. Also, Disney’s live-action version of “The Jungle Book” (1994) also used what’s now the Ocean Creek Golf course as a stand-in for the jungles of India. Finally, the beach house in which Barbra Streisand and Nick Nolte spend time in, “The Prince of Tides” (1991) is currently a beachfront rental property here on Fripp Island.
Q: Are there any?
A: The only extra cost would be for Guest Passes (see above) and of course, taxes. Unlike some owners, we build the cost of cleaning into all of our rental rates and don’t tack that on as a hidden surprise. The 10% accommodations tax that we charge is what’s legally required by South Carolina (7%) and Beaufort County (3%) so you shouldn’t be paying more than that to rent on Fripp. Also, we don't currently require a security deposit and just ask our guests to pay for any damage they may cause.
