Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our week in your condo. the view is spectacular and we spent every minute of our down time on the porch. After heading to the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets, we'd grab a glass of wine & sit out and look at the stars-amazing, we don't see anything like that at home. We enjoyed our trip to Savannah, the great coffee shop in Beaufort and a side trip to Hilton Head Island to visit my sister who was there on vacation (way too busy for our liking). Thanks so much for the use of your golf cart! What a great way to get around. We spent several days touring the island. I know we will be coming back down again as we loved the quiet atmosphere and all the animals we saw, including an alligator crossing the road! Your condo was very comfortable and fit our needs perfectly. Thank you!

Beautiful views,golf cart a MUST,plus amenity card

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Fripp Island. The condo has a wonderful view...oceanfront and a very reasonable nightly rate for all you receive. Golf cart is a must, amenity passes are helpful to cruise and use all the pools and restaurants. We ate at Bonito Boathouse and it has wonderful views upstairs but you have to have an amenity card. Loved the Cabana pool and the adult pool. Went paddle boarding with Nalu in the lagoon which was a great workout and beautiful views. We will definitely be back, I want to kayak to Pritchard's Island and explore all the pools again! Thanks so much to Ann!

Great location and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5
We were excited to return to Fripp after skipping the past two years. Views from the deck were excellent. Sea turtles and dolphin were commonly seen. Viewing the tides gave dramatic changes in the beach areas. The sun set cruise from the Marina was great. Ann Miller was responsive and helpful, with checking in an out a breeze. Their golf cart performed perfectly and we preferred it over the car for most activities on the island. We made a trip up to Charleston, the Magnolia Plantation, and some of the other sea islands north of Charleston. History abounds in this area and we always find more to learn. If only we could have stayed longer!
We'll keep this property on our list for the future.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
The minute we walked in the unit it felt comfortable, clean and tidy. Great view of the ocean with the dolphins swimming past daily. The couch was perfect for napping and the king size bed was comfortable.

It was perfect for my husband and me, as we were visiting friends in the area. The kitchen was perfect for preparing breakfast and lunch though a little under equipped for preparing dinners. WiFi would have been a huge plus, but overall our experience was very positive and would stay there again.

Fripp Island....We Miss You!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time on Fripp Island and while we did not know what to expect we were very pleasantly surprised! Our accommodations were just as promised and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this great location. The golf cart made our experience even more enjoyable, giving us access to all the beautiful sites throughout the island. The beach was beautiful along with the various pools around the island….I think we tried each one! We had breakfast at the golf course across the street, BBQ’d lunch and dined at Bonito’s Boathouse (try the She Crab Soup). Ann the owner was a phone call away and did whatever she could to make our stay a pleasant one. Unfortunately I had to cut my stay short due to work but I am already planning to visit here again!

Best vacation EVER! I love the island life!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, my 9 year old daughter and myself spent the best week EVER in this beautiful villa. We found the villa to be just as we expected it to be. The living area is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The bed is amazing! The view is indescribable - sunrises, dolphins, deer, pelicans, wind surfers, fishing boats! The grounds are well maintained with plenty of areas to just sit and take in the scenery or read a good book or just holding your loved one's hand! The owners are amazing - so gracious! I thank you so much for sharing your lovely home. For goin - we spent many hours riding the golf cart looking for adventures! We will definitely be back!!!

My favorite place to take my family

  • 5 of 5
My wife my little girl, and myself have stayed in this villa the last two summers, and have already made reservations to return this summer. Although it is a one bedroom villa it has been plenty of room for us being that she is still only a toddler.
To start with the rental is always very clean, and it is exactly as described. The view is unbelievable, and watching the dophins, deer, pelicans, and various other birds is very enjoyable and in abundance every day. If you are an early riser such as myself the sunrises are incredible, and very hard to find a more picturesque place to watch the sun come up over the Atlantic Ocean.
Although the room is literally right on the water, it is not on the beach, however if you are willing to walk 3 minutes there is a small beach right around the corner of the wall during low tide,or you can take the golf cart that is provided with the rental of the room to the middle of the island here there is a much larger beach there. Although, the wall does provide for an excellent place to do a lil fishing. Also, there are several pools on the island, including a kiddie pool that conviniently has a tiki type bar and resteraunt located right next to it, and there are two beautiful golf courses on the island(just watch out for the gators).
I've been to several beaches, but I have yet to find a place that is safer and more enjoyable than Fripp Island, and this villa is definately a key player as to why my wife and I fell in love with Fripp Island.
