Direct Oceanfront & Golf / Highest-Rated Fripp 2 BR, on VRBO


Property Details

Updated: May 8, 2015
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Totally Renovated in 2006 & Renovated again in 2011 & 2012 - Extremely well maintained. DIRECT OCEAN FRONT & DIRECT GOLF COURSE IN BACK. WIRELESS INTERNET.

***Please see our Guest Comments under our additional website, VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner), home # 65602.


* Ocean Point Golf Course directly in back, west-facing from 2nd BR.


* Our pool for North Hampton Guests, only.

* 2-min. walk to most beautiful (per Fripp Club staff) 'Ocean Point' Beach Access.

* Private oceanfront pool for N. Hampton residents; additional oceanfront pool and wading pool (accessed w/ provided amenity cards), adjacent to our Ocean Point Beach Access.

We do our very best to ensure that your precious vacation time is totally enjoyable....

Our villa was completely renovated in 2006, and renovated meticulously, again, in Jan. 2011 and 2012; Direct Oceanfront facing east (from LR/DR/Kitchen/MBR - even the master bath) & Ocean Point Golf Course directly in back (which 2nd bedroom overlooks, facing west). Our villa is situated at the quieter, sunniest end of the island, with its own pool and elevator. (Other villas have at least one set of stairs to access their villa. And the New Haven villas have very poor cell phone reception, if any.) This area of Fripp is perfect for lovers of oceanfront golf, as well as those of us who are enthralled with the ever-changing ocean. AMAZING pink grapefruit sunrises and glimmering moonrises. Wi-Fi, 37' flatscreen LCD TV, down-filled chaise sofa and Lazy Boy recliner will add to your comforts.

If you and your family would like to enjoy a worry-free vacation on a low-key-island wildlife preserve, where the dolphins play directly in front of your third floor balcony and master bedroom window, and the deer roam freely and will eat from your hand, then Fripp is your island.

Fripp is a private, gated island, 1½ hours from Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. Also, 15 minutes from Fripp, is the historical town of Beaufort, a picturesque town which is rated as one of the top 10 places to retire by Kiplinger's magazine. Be sure to visit Beaufort's many riverfront (intracoastal waterway) restaurants, antique stores, and excellent historical tours. Beaufort will very likely be designated 'HAPPIEST SEASIDE TOWN', by COASTAL LIVING, issue to be released March 15th, 2013 :>)

The island offers a pristine 3½ mile beach, which is wide, very gradually sloping, with gentle Atlantic waters, and is a 5-minute walk from our villa to our Ocean Point beach access; or, a 1-mile drive from our villa. Our North Hampton condo complex has its own pool, with an outside shower, and an elevator (wheeled cart in our closet makes it super easy to transport belongings to or from car/villa - most all homes and other condo buildings have at least 1 flight of stairs. We are handicapped accessible. Also, ease of entry/exit via the elevator is a blessing for those of us over age 50)! Guests may also enjoy additional oceanfront pools, to include another pool next to our Beach Access (Ocean Point Pool - with wading pool also - and Playground) the mid-island Beach Club, and the south-end Cabana Club Complex.

Other highlights include 2 championship golf courses (Ocean Point, just steps from your door); miles of nature-filled bike trails; tennis; rentals of boats, kayaks, golf carts, mopeds, waverunners, and backwater skiffs; fishing and crabbing; dolphin cruises; ocean seining; Family Night with the Naturalist...OR, just relax in your beach lounger with a great book, and an endless ocean view! Fripp has everything you need for a safe, fun-filled, family holiday AWAY from congestion, commercialism, and the modern frenzied lifestyle.

Our rates include 2 weeklong amenity cards (for 7-nights' stay; or (2) 3-day cards for 3 nights or fewer; see explanation under rates), & ALL fees, etc. 3 nights or fewer must add $85 housekeeping fee. Additional amenity cards may be purchased. PayPal available if you prefer to use credit card; due to PayPal fees, we must add $10 for each PayPal transaction.

Fripp Island return

  • 5 of 5
We returned to Fripp for our family vacation after having been away for several years. Our family has stayed in a variety of places but this condo was by far one of the best that we have stayed in. It was exceptionally clean and well equipped. I loved the location as it was far enough away from the busier parts of the resort to allow us beautiful, peaceful evenings and our own little paradise! We were able to see dolphin from the deck as well as the daily flying patterns of the pelicans which were breathtaking. The owners gave us 100% + attention, ensuring that our return to Fripp was nothing but fabulous!

Owner's Response: Dear Ginny and Tom, In 2005, when my husband and I bought our Fripp home, we never envisioned just how much it would mean to us, to know that our guests had truly enjoyed our home and the uniqueness of Fripp Island. Hearing your welcome appreciation is what makes us love being hosts to such a special family as yours! We know how precious family vacation time is, and we are so grateful that you took the time to write to us. We look forward to your return, next July. Many sincere thanks for all of your kindness, and for choosing our home, again :>) Kindest regards, Lisa and Eddie

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5
Lisa, I cannot tell you how much our family of 5 enjoyed your villa on Fripp. We have always vacationed on the Gulf and wanted to try something new and couldn't be more pleased with our experience. We loved the island and greatly appreciated all the helpful information you gave us prior to our visit, it made getting settled in so easy! We loved the quietness of the villa complex as well as how easy it was to get to the other spots on the island. Your villa was SO clean and had everything we needed to enjoy the beach (great chairs by the way) and not having to pack our own towels was very nice as well. The pictures you display are accurate as are the description of how lovely the area is. The only thing we may have missed was a grill to cook all the wonderful fresh seafood we purchased at Gay's, but the steamer pot in the kitchen worked out great! We highly recommend the Nature cruise thru excursions, especially to anyone who hasn't visited the area before, it was a great value and our whole family is still talking about all the things we saw. My kids also enjoyed the craft activities available to give us a short break from the sun in the afternoon, and everything was so reasonable in price! We will certainly be back to Fripp, hopefully many more times, and would certainly recommend your property to anyone and would love to stay again ourselves! Thanks again for being so easy to work with and for sharing your treasure with us!

Owner's Response: Katrina, I'm so glad that you and your family enjoyed Fripp and our villa! It really is a unique little sanctuary. I've never taken the Nature Cruise, but I now plan to do so. Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and sweet email. I'm so glad that you have discovered and enjoyed Beautiful Fripp :>)

Trip Down Memory Lane

  • 5 of 5
This was a great villa for our mid-May long weekend trip down Memory Lane with my 85 year-old parents who used to live on Fripp. I chose Lisa’s villa because of all her details and advice she listed on this website (so helpful!), the easy access with the elevator for elderly knees(!), it was on our favorite quieter end of the island, and it had great ocean and inlet views. As a nice bonus, the hotel-quality large luggage cart made unloading a snap!

We especially loved sitting on Lisa’s balcony watching the pelicans soar by at eye-level! It was also great watching the surf at high tide explode in sea spray as it hit the rocks in front of the building! At night, the comfy sofa and the huge TV were where you’d find us. Although we didn’t go swimming this trip (just a bit chilly this time!), the condo’s swimming pool looked very inviting!

Lisa’s villa was exceptionally clean, neat, and had a very well-supplied kitchen, lots of bath and beach towels, and very comfortable beds! Lisa also has LOTS of beach chairs! My dad especially liked the taller ones that had the soft cushions and sides that blocked the wind on the beach, were easy for him to use, and so easy to carry with its case and shoulder strap.

If you want to go to a really great seafood restaurant, try the 11th Street Dockside at Port Royal (about 30 minutes from the villa) overlooking the shrimp docks on Port Royal Sound. (We noted they have a new location on Lady’s Island, but as we were going back to our long-time favorites, we went to Port Royal!)

Closer to Fripp on Harbor Island is Johnson Creek Tavern, another long-time favorite that did not disappoint, and the Shrimp Shack for great shrimp burgers! We tried Barbara Jean’s just to try something new. Trust us. Johnson Creek Tavern’s crab cakes were MUCH better, and they are a long-time local restaurant, not a chain.

Note to those travelling with the elderly: Some beach access points require more walking to the shore than others, and some access points require you to go up and down some stair steps. If this is an issue, just ask Lisa or security for the access point that would work best for your group.

Note for those with older kids who LOVE big waves: From our many years of experience at Fripp, the best time for big waves is about 1 hour up to high tide. If you also happen to be at Fripp during a full moon, the waves at high tide are even better!!

Spring Break at Fripp

  • 5 of 5
This villa was a perfect place for me, my husband and our 9-year-old to stay for spring break. Everything was clean, comfortable and in great working order. Lisa provided so much helpful information about what to do, see, eat... It made our stay even more enjoyable! We rented a golf cart while we were there, which was really nice to have. Fripp is a wonderful place for families with children with lots of nature experiences. We hope to go back!

Another Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is our 3rd time staying in this villa unit. Here are the reasons why each stay has been nothing short of stellar: 1) cleanliness - always very clean, organized and stocked 2) Lisa - as responsiveness goes, Lisa is second to none and always accommodating (example, we needed another car pass because my parents were visiting and within 10 minutes Lisa had contacted the gate and arranged for the other pass) 3) Economical - the unit is always fairly priced which helps out our family of 4 4) Location - great view of the ocean and pool, and top floor.

We'll look forward to staying again when the opportunity presents itself.
