Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I wanted to have a long weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary so, on the recommendation of a friend, we looked at Fripp Island. Neither of us had ever been there, but we had heard good things about it. We really had no idea what to expect, but upon arriving at the check-in security gate, we were greeted by a friendly guard who gave us some information and our amenity cards. We were immediately impressed with the beauty of the island and, as we made our way to the condo, we saw many deer as they casually walked or snacked along the road. Very neat to see wild deer in that kind of natural setting. When we arrived at the unit, we were thrilled to find a very nicely appointed and clean place. Everything in the room was comfortable and useful. We stepped onto the relatively large deck to see that the ocean was literally only a few feet off the deck. It is the closest to the ocean I've ever been in the room in which I was staying. It was great! With no exaggeration, within minutes we were taken by how quiet the condo complex was. Only once during our four day stay did we even hear any noise. Overall, it was a wonderful experience; not only on Fripp but specifically in 625 New Haven! We've already made reservations to go back in Oct and stay there again!

Perfect for a couple get away!
We had a really nice time at this condo. Bedroom was very comfortable and open floorplan worked great. Felt private and secluded. We took advantage of the golf cart and bicycles! Wouldn't be able to have enjoyed so much without the cart! Loved the choices of pools, beach access points. Although we saw the deer in the advertisements, we had no idea they were basically everywhere! We loved that we could stop the cart and take a close up photo with several beautiful bucks! So beautiful at Fripp... really felt like an island with it's flora and fauna!
It was nice resort and place except condo was lacking decent cookware and silverware... Kitchen essentials. Nice beach area, a lot of restaurants closed in the resort because we were there mid May.
We had a WONDERFUL visit at this Fripp Island condo! The location is FABULOUS!You can't get any closer to being ON the ocean, and listening to the crashing waves was incredible! We LOVED the location and thoroughly enjoyed our visit! We rented this condo for 2 weeks, and will definitely enjoy renting again if we are able to return to Fripp Island! Communication with the owner was excellent as well, and very prompt! There were no problems at all, and we appreciated the opportunity to have this ocean front vacation!
Will Definitely Be Back!
We just felt the stress melt away from the minute we arrived on the island. There was a group of deer at the entrance waiting to greet us! The directions to the condo were very easy to understand and were very helpful when we arrived. The condo is well-maintained and has a lot of things that you may need. There are pots, pans, a coffee maker, and also a washer and dryer. There are games to play and also a good variety of books to read. There are grills nearby if you want to grill out one night. The view from the back deck is amazing! We loved to have our coffee outside each morning so we could watch the dolphins swimming. The golf cart was wonderful and we enjoyed exploring the island and seeing all of the wildlife. There are bikes that we took over to Hunting Island, which was a great day trip. There are some great restaurants and shops in downtown Beaufort if you decide to venture off the island. This trip was one of the best we have taken in a while and we will definitely go back, hopefully soon!
My wife and I wanted to get away for a weekend and we had heard good things about Fripp Island so we wanted to see for ourselves. We were looking for a total get away from everything and that is exactly what we got. The condo is so peaceful. You can sit out on the balcony and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching dolphins swim by.
The island is out there so I suggest buying groceries on the way in so you don't have to go back to town often. Town is about a 25min drive, but there is a small grocery store on the island which has some basic items.
The golf cart was the best feature. There is nothing better than parking your car for the weekend and cruising around on a golf cart. So much fun! If you can get in early enough on Friday you have to go to Bonita's Boat house for happy hour. Those people definitely know how to party. If you are looking for something close by I definitely recommend Johnson's Creek. Their food is awesome and the make the best margaritas around. If you head into town we loved Q on Bay. They have great BBQ and a larger variety of craft beer including several local ones.
All in all this just a great place to stay especially for the money. The owners are very friendly and supply everything you will need to have a great weekend. Did I mention the golf cart? On top of that there is a fully stocked kitchen, cable tv, games, bikes, etc.
If you are looking for an escape from work, the kids, the traffic, etc. I highly recommend staying here. If you are wanting to stay in a place with tons of bars, nightlife, traffic, crowds, etc. this is probably not for you.
Great Beachside Location!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway at Fripp Island. New Haven Villa provided plenty of room for our family of four. My husband, myself, and our two sons looked forward to watching the dolphins from our balcony and our afternoon golf cart rides to see the deer. The island is a beautiful place for families and our condo had everything we needed. We look forward to coming back to Fripp Island.
