Our 5-star reviews say it all......Footprints is the ideal getaway and heaven for your vacation! From the moment you arrive, the home is designed for your fun and enjoyment!
Footprints in the Sand features the best of both, impressive ocean vistas in the front of the home along with striking expansive vistas of the Ocean Point Golf Course behind the home. Guests consistently rate Footprints with 5-stars and most say it is the finest vacation rental home they've ever experienced and that Footprints "Feels like home". The housekeeping team ensures the home is pristine upon your arrival.

I designed and constructed the home to include every feature I felt was missing in a vacation rental. All rooms have vistas of the ocean and either access to a private balcony or the huge Southern porches. The main floor has an exceptional open floor plan with a sizable family room, half bath off the entryway, open dining area and sizable master bedroom and ensuite master bath. The cavernous and well-equipped kitchen is designed for enormous family gatherings with tons of counter space for helpers, double stainless steel ovens, dedicated ice machine, French door refrigerator and an additional tall mini refrigerator for overflow groceries. Chefs appreciate the kitchen and a Weber grille is also available for outdoor cooking! The Master is upgraded with Posturepedic linens, high quality sheets, hypo-allergenic pillows and flat screen t.v.,. The humongous ensuite bath has an ADA seamless tile shower, soaker tub and a nice walk-in closet.

A golf cart along with four high quality adult cruiser bicycles (plus bicycles for the kiddies), nice quality beach chairs, beach wagon, beach toys and high quality beach towels all come complimentary with your rental. If your stay is seven nights or longer, two weekly amenities cards are included. Additional cards can be purchased through me, unlike other Hosts on the Island. The new owners of Fripp Island have added a mandatory 12.8% fee ( of the base rental rate only) for ALL PROPERTIES on the island.

The new exercise center is open and our beach access is less than a 2 min. walk to the best beach access on the island with an painless ramp (not a long boardwalk) for strollers and walkers! Don't be fooled by busy "center island" or Tarpon locations, with no room to spread out and no beach at high tide. All pools are less than a 5 min. golf cart ride and faster by car.

If you need to work remotely and we hope you don't....but if you do...... there's a dedicated desk in the upstairs loft also with fantastic vistas while you work.

Times are stressful and Footprints in the Sand is the ideal place to get away, relax and detox on this private island we call "Heaven"! We strive to ensure your safety and housekeeping adheres to CDC guidelines for cleaning and all duct work has been cleaned and sanitized for added comfort!

Footprints in the Sand is a professionally designed and decorated 5-star rated home by over 70 guests with phenomenal beach and wildlife vistas! House is designed with hotel quality floors, quartz counter tops/sinks/faucets in kitchen and all baths, new fireplace surround, newly painted etc. Appreciate our close beach access to go back and forth to the home when you're at the beach! I LOVE the beach, but hate packing the "stuff" for a great vacation. No worries, we provide toiletries like a hotel, hair dryer in each bath, all linens, a golf cart, beach chairs, beach towels, beach wagon and bicycles for all ages! Exploring the island in our golf cart or on the striking bicycle paths makes for the ideal vacation. What better way to get away!

Our Property Manager and Housekeeper are top-notch and use CDC recommended anti-bacteria products to keep Footprints sanitized and clean! To assist in contact complimentary luxury cards, our property manager even delivers your luxury cards prior to your arrival at no additional charge and is available and responsive during your stay. Our goal is to ensure you have the best and safest vacation possible!

- Upstairs has four comfortable bedrooms, each with a uniquely appointed beach décor and all bedrooms have flat screen TVs!

- Two bedrooms face the ocean each with Queen beds, their own vanities/toilets and share a Jack and Jill shower. One of the Queen bedrooms has an additional twin bed. Both rooms open to the upper front deck looking onto the Atlantic Ocean where you can also savor the sunrise! A twin air bed and pack n' play are available as well.

- The other two bedrooms view the golf course and have two twins in each room and if you'd prefer you have the option to convert the twins to a King! Each room has their own vanity and toilet, share a Jack and Jill shower and supplied with a high quality hair dryer. These bedrooms have their own private balconies to admire the ocean and sunsets as well!

We manage our home like an fresh hotel, furnishing all the baths with toiletries, hotel quality towels & linens for total pampering! Our property manager lives close by to ensure everything runs smoothly during your vacation.

How to find the best Fripp Island vacation home experience:

Finding your best deal:

  • In the Beaufort, SC area, The sooner you can reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The best rental homes are booked very early. Reserving your rental home six to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental home.
  • To find the largest rental within your budget, we recommend booking in Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at restaurants, beaches, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer.
  • Owners sometimes offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Make sure to check with your property manager to see if discounts are available for your group.
  • Property management companies frequently offer renters an option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Look for your local Beaufort, SC visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, travel guides contain money saving offers on local restaurants, attractions, and tours.

How to pick the perfect rental in Fripp Island:

  • Start by having your group choose the best dates and a max budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration you need. Ocean Views Galore! 5 star reviews, easy beach & pool access. Cards, cart incl! has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Beaufort, SC vacation rental search.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts is commonly accessible on booking pages. Otherwise, contact the property owner before you book the rental. Note that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds and bunks. You'll need to determine what configuration is optimal for your family.
  • If your group is bringing pets, you must book a property that allows animals. Make sure to ask for specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Often, property managers charge additional pet fees.
  • Is your group looking for particular amenities? Most websites include search filters with amenity lists. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
  • Proper accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.

Advice for a wonderful stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before leaving home. Take a printed copy, and save the instructions to your phone.
  • Hosts are there to help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home when you are gone, just like you would back home.
  • During arrival, note any issues with the property and immediately contact the host. Record all coorespondence.
  • Be respectful of your neighbors. Frequently, nearby homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking policies reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Residents can typically help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to rent beach equipment, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Double-check the property to make sure that you've packed all of your family's items at departure. Remember to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the property one final time and look for damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos of the rental to record its condition.
  • Remember to leave feedback! Hosts rely on excellent ratings to inspire new reservations. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other families will will be grateful for your review find their best vacation home. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
