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 giant hike to actually get to the water!) Ideal home! Amenity cards aren't supplied but we can get them for an additional charge.
Once you visit our home you will want to return! This home has generations of adore 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 phenomenal golf courses, a marina, five different eateries, numerous 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 charming 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 fabulous 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 appreciate 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 beautiful. Some find it bewildering. I like to escape downstairs!
