About this Property

  • Sleeps 11

  • Private vacation home

Look no further!! We offer it all- beach and canal!! This home is really the best location on the island and accepts simple access to all the island's activities! We are a canal-front home with a private dock, across the street from the beach, next to the tennis courts, across the street from olympic pool, adult pool, eateries and shopping! We are less than 100 yards from beach access 16 - which has sand regardless of the tide! (This is an amazing additional considering some beachfront homes don't have any beach during high tide or have a humongous hike to actually get to the water!) Ideal home! Amenity cards aren't included but we can get them for an additional charge (see explanation of these further down!)

Once you visit our home you will want to return! This home has generations of appreciate and laughter. It has an open floor plan so you can talk to the chef while sitting on the back porch overlooking the marsh! Downstairs you can follow a family tradition and have an oyster roast in the fire pit!

ADVENTURE/ACTIVITIES: If you feel the need to venture further, you can go to two different amazing golf courses, a marina, five different eateries, multiple pools, and a exercise center!
You can also discover the island on peaceful roads and broad bicycle trails. There is a lot of wildlife to be seen including alligators, pelicans, osprey, dolphins, crabs, and a lot of deer! There are also many great shells to be found on the beach. It is like your own little mini zoo!

If you wish to get intimately involved with wildlife, you can bring home dinner by going crabbing and fishing off our dock. You can also bring your boat and launch it at the marina or another close public launch.

Fripp also offers Camp Fripp, a kids's recreation center where the kids can discover the island while mom and dad golf, play tennis, or just sit by the pool. There are organized activities for the older kids as well.

ISLAND FACTS: Fripp Island is a pristine 3000-acre private, gated island 19 miles outside of Beaufort, South Carolina. The island has three and a half miles of impressive beaches. Several movies have been filmed on the island including Forrest Gump, Jungle Book, and The Prince of Tides. The authors Pat Conroy and Cassandra King chose to call the island home for a brief while.

HOME INFO: This four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has an outdoor covered porch and an enclosed sunroom. There is a king in one room upstairs and a queen in the other room. Downstairs, one room has a queen and a twin and the other has a queen. The pull-out queen is in the sunroom which has a door to shut it off from the rest of the home. ALL OF THE ROOMS HAVE A TV!!! There is a outstanding view of the canal with a private dock. Downstairs there is a screen porch with an enclosed charcoal grille, a ping pong table, and of course a washer and dryer. The kitchen has all of the essentials and then some. You will surely want to savor it!

The home was originally intended to be a fishing camp. The downstairs was going to be for all my Grandpa's rowdy friends. The upstairs was supposed to be for the more refined guests! That being said - YOU HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE TO GO FROM THE UPSTAIRS ROOMS TO THE DOWNSTAIRS ROOMS. Some people find this gorgeous. Some find it bewildering. I like to escape downstairs!

Amenity Cards: For first timers at Fripp, luxury cards are confusing. If you rent through individual owners who use Vacation Rental By Owner, you have to purchase them through the owner. The owners have to be members of the resort to be able to offer them. They provide access to the resort amenities. All guests ages 13 and up need them. They are an additional cost to the price quoted through Vacation Rental By Owner. We can however add them to your balance and you can pay through the Vacation Rental By Owner site. We also accept venmo or checks. What amenities do they provide access to? They include golf, ability to rent golf carts or bicycles, tennis and pickle ball courses, swimming pools, resort owned eateries, and the ability to launch your boat at the marina. There is still a charge to be able to use all of these (except pools!)
There is a 12.8% base cost for these. This is calculated on your base rental rate before any costs. Plus each card has an individual cost (listed below.)
$50/card: Memorial Day - Labor Day for 4-7 days
$35/card: Memorial Day - Labor Day for for 1-4 days
$35/card: Fall, Winter, Spring for 4-7 days
$25/card: Fall, Winter, Spring for 1-4 days

If you are good old fashioned beach people and don't use any of these, there is no additional charge! There is also a deli at the marina and a deli at the beginning of the island where you don't need them!

Tips and Tricks to get the perfect Fripp Island rental home experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • June, July, and August are high season in the Beaufort, SC area. Book your Beaufort, SC rental home in Spring or Fall to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Book your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups book their Summer vacations during Winter holiday get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some property management companies offer rate reductions for veterans and active duty military. It's always a good idea to check with your host or property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your group.
  • Property management companies usually offer their guests an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for details.
  • Many rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Beaufort, SC area visitors guide magazines which will include coupons, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Beaufort, SC visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Planning, picking, and booking the perfectrental home:

  • Choose a designated group leader, choose your dates, and select a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family requires. Canal Front, Private Dock, Across Street from BEACH, Olympic Pool, Food Court! has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is usually accessible online. Otherwise, call the property management company before you reserve the vacation property. Note that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which typically includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • If there's a specific Beaufort, SC destination you are crazy about, search for rentals that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before booking
  • Some rentals allow pets, but some don't. Allowable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the property management company about your furry family members before booking.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Save the instructions to your smartphone, and take a printed copy.
  • To make certain no damages are linked to your stay, record any problem areas upon your arrival. E-mail the rental manager right away to relay any damages. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having the recorded issues and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Property managers are there to help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud vacationers bothering your peace. Practice the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great beaches and places you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can frequently help. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Keep the property locked while you are gone! Don't let burglars ruin your family vacation.
  • Re-check the property to confirm that you've packed all of your family's items on check-out day. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your family have a fantastic stay? Most vacation rental websites make it easy for customers to provide reviews. If your rental property and/or property management company was wonderful, they would love to hear about it. If anything was inoperable and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
