  • Approximately 1374 square feet

Welcome to “Sunspot”, a completely refreshed (May 2022), charmingly furnished beachfront condominium on striking Fripp Island. Sunspot is in the Captain John Fripp Villas, centrally located on the Island, with the very best stretch of beach – whether at high tide or low! Unlike public beaches, such as Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach, Fripp Island is secluded and serene. Even during the high season, the beach is not too busy to spread out a family’s worth of towels, chairs, coolers and umbrellas, and still have room to build a sandcastle! This handsomely updated condo has two bedrooms and two completely remodeled full bathrooms upstairs, and a half bath on the first floor. Wake to broad vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. The master bedroom (which has the ocean view) has a gorgeous queen bed and a delightful, sophisticated en suite bath with a amazing shower and plenty of vanity storage. The guest room has a queen bed and handsome constructed-in bunk beds. The additional full bath is just off the hallway. This bathroom is super cute, with updated fixtures and a gorgeously tiled tub/shower combination. Each bedroom has a flat screen T.V., and the guest room t.v. has a DVD player constructed in! There is ample closet space and plenty of storage for clothes in chests of drawers in each room.

The first floor includes a laundry room with washer and dryer. We do provide a modest supply of washing detergent upon your arrival. The kitchen is completely equipped, with plates, glasses, flatware, cookware and silverware, with a full sized dishwasher for your convenience. It includes a five burner smooth top electric stove with oven and microwave, a combo coffee machine for automatic drip or single cup brewing, a toaster, a blender and a full sized refrigerator with ice maker. All appliances are brand new as of May 2022!
There is a half bath on the first floor (not available in many of the two bedroom condos); a dining area which can seat up to eight; and a comfortable den with a enormous, beautiful couch, a roomy accent chair and a 60” flat screen TV for your viewing enjoyment. A DVD player and sizable array of movies are available for your use. There are also connections for Roku or other streaming devices. Right outside the sliding glass door is a patio with a charcoal grille and a nice wrought iron table and chair ensemble with a huge patio umbrella for shade. Parents can sip coffee in the morning, or beverages in the evening, and savor the ocean vista while modest kids cavort on the grassy yard directly behind the villa. The convenient boardwalk to the white sand beach is just steps away. The John Fripp Villas complex has a private pool for residents and guests, if one wants to take a fresh water dip or just relax in the sun without the sand!

We do not provide a golf cart with our rental home. I seriously considered making that an option, but after weighing the pros and cons, decided it was best to let guests rent from one of the local companies. I could provide it myself, and then increase costs for the guest to cover the costs of purchase, use, maintenance and insurance. However, if there were a problem with the cart, it might take numerous days (or even weeks) for me to be able to get the cart repaired. It is not painless for an individual to get a cart attended to during the busy season, as all the commercial companies are concerned with their own repairs/replacements, etc. If a guest rents a cart themselves, they are assured that the golf cart company will get a replacement cart to them very quickly if there are any problems.

Located 19 miles east of Beaufort, South Carolina, Fripp is a private, 3000 acre nature preserve, which features two spectacular golf courses; a Racquet club with eight Fast-Dry clay courts and two hard courts; 7 pools; a full-service Marina; land and water units including golf carts, bicycles, mopeds, Carolina Skiffs and kayaks; and guided trips on the “Fripper II”, the Island pontoon cruiser. There are numerous eateries on the island, as well as the “Beach Club Food Court”, serving everything from fine dining to burgers and chicken fingers. There are also numerous fun “watering holes” for the adults to appreciate!

One will certainly enjoy a gorgeous beach vacation at Fripp calming on our roomy beach, playing in the sand and surf, hiking, cycling, fishing, and visiting with family and friends in a relaxing and charming ambiance. One can take day trips to close by Hunting Island State Park, the cozy stores and eateries of Frogmore, Historic Beaufort, Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston. The Captain John Fripp Villa complex has a private pool for the use of our guests. Also, our full kitchen makes cooking complete meals for the family in the villa simple and convenient.

The golf courses, tennis courts, island eateries, and multiple island pools are owned and operated by the Fripp Island Golf and Beach Resort. Other resort amenities include the Fripp Kids’s camp, recreational equipment units, golf cart units, and various club-sponsored activities. The resort has a Club Guest Pass policy. In order to access the resort amenities a club guest card must be purchased for each individual aged thirteen and older. Anyone under thirteen must be accompanied by an adult with a club guest card. For guests wishing to order club guest cards, there is a resort fee added to the rental rate. The resort fee is 12.8% of the rental rate (before cleaning costs and taxes). This fee is required by the Fripp Island Resort for anyone utilizing the club amenities. The resort fee is in addition to the club card costs. This is a policy implemented by the new resort owners, as of February 24, 2023. Please note, because the resort fee is not automatically applied via the Vacation Rental By Owner platform, the additional amount for resort costs and amenities cards is paid to the homeowner directly. This will be a separate charge on the signed rental agreement. The cost for a weekly club guest card (5-8 days) is $50.00 each during the Summer - typically Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend - and $35.00 for a four-day card (1-4 days). During the rest of the year, the cost for weekly cards is $35.00 and the cost for four-day cards is $25.00. Guest cards are purchased through property owners, and we can certainly order those for our guests who would like to have them. If you do not wish to order Club guest cards, and do not wish to use club amenities, this resort fee will not apply to your rental!

Rental of the villa is contingent upon direct communication between the guest and the homeowner. No rental will be considered complete and valid until a signed rental agreement has been received by both events! Although we adore family pets (we have multiple of our own), we do not take our pets, and we do not allow guests to bring pets to the villa. No, dogs, cats, birds, turtles, lizards, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, hedgehogs... nada! We have outfitted our villa with very nice furnishings, and we expect our guests to take good care of our vacation home.

Fripp Island is just a short distance from the historic towns of Beaufort and Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia. One can comfortably visit any or all three of these phenomenal and striking locations to enjoy antiquing, historic tours, retail shopping, and handsome dining. Many blockbuster movies such as “The Big Chill”, “The Prince of Tides”, “Forrest Gump”, and “The Jungle Book” have been filmed in the area because it provides the ideal combination of natural beauty, historic significance, and innate Southern appeal.

Getting the best vacation property experience:

When to go & When to book:

  • Summertime is high season in the Beaufort, SC area. To book the largest rental for your budget, we suggest reserving in Spring or Fall. You'll enjoy lower rates, greater selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at popular attractions and restaurants.
  • Reserve your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally open twelve months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups book their Summer vacation rentals during Christmas and Thanksgiving get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host if your group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Booking websites usually offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed days as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for details.
  • Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Beaufort, SC area travel guides which include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a relationship with the management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

How to select the perfect vacation rental in the Beaufort, SC area:

  • Select dates and maximum budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the configuration your group needs. A sweet spot at the Beach! Fabulous pet free, smoke free oceanfront villa. has 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always available on booking pages. If not, reach out to the property manager before you reserve the vacation home. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds. You will need to determine what configuration is optimal for your family.
  • Visiting for a single event? If so, use a map search to find nearby rentals.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • Are you bringing the family pet? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or charges may be applied to your invoice.

More considerations:

  • Add the property manager's contact information to your smartphone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Record any issues with the rental during check in, and immediately send them to the host. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be very helpful if there is a dispute.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, stereo or kitchen appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief call prevents quite a few concerns.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud visitors bothering your quiet neighborhood. Apply the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and scenic spots you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Lock your rental while you're out. Keep your property safe!
  • At departure, complete a walk-through to confirm you did not leave anything behind. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did you have a great time? Most rental websites make it easy for clients to provide reviews. If your property and/or property manager was fantastic, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was out of order and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
