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.

Hello, Lisa, from Dallas! Hope you remember us. We were guests at your beautiful condo in 2009, for the month of October. This is my favorite vacation, above even Europe! I so miss Fripp and wanted to see if we could spend the the month of October, at Fripp. I look forward to hearing from you.

Wonderful family getaway
Trip Down Memory Lane
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!!
