About this Property

This meticulous three bedroom, two and a half bath golf course home overlooks the sixteenth fairway and green of one of two golf courses on this 6000 acre private island off the coast of Beaufort, SC. Fourteen years ago we bought the home and completely modernized and redecorated it with new carpeting, paint, furnishings, appliances ,kitchen items and linens. We visit it often, and every year we continue to improve it for you and for us to savor. Recently, we removed the carpeting and installed wood floors in the entire home except the bedrooms. We thoroughly refreshed the master bath area. It is now tiled with a walk in shower, a new vanity, mirrors, lighting, etc. This past year we tore out the old, cracked and buckled asphalt driveway and installed pavers for the driveway and walkway. Hurricane Matthew completely destroyed the garden in our courtyard, so we have replanted it with some new and interesting plantings and we also installed a jerry-rigged automatic sprinkling system to assure that the garden gets adequate moisture during these first few months.
**** AMENITY CARDS*****
Because we are Fripp Island Club members, our visitors can appreciate the fine recreational facilities and programs available on Fripp Island. Privately owned, with access restricted to preserve the high standards you expect, the Fripp Island sports and dining luxuries are designed to give unparalleled satisfaction. You may buy up to six amenities cards. Each card is $50 per week from Memorial Day to Labor Day or $35 during the off season.

**** GOLF CART ****
Most of our visitors want to have a golf cart available. Some do not. We make a four passenger golf cart available to those who want it for an additional fee of $300 per week which is substantially less than is charged by the resort for a similar cart. ****************************************

**** WiFi and HDTV ****
We have installed wifi and an HDTV for the living room. The master bedroom has an additional HDTV. The T.V.s are connected to Comcast/XFinity with HBO and Showtime and numerous other premium networks.
Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds, and the third has two twins. Although we have tried to think of everything to make your stay more fun, we welcome any suggestions you may have to make your next stay with us more enchanting.

Fripp Island is a private gated island off the coast of one of South Carolina’s most historic cities.

The home has 1550 square feet of room plus a restfully sized outdoor space. The kitchen is generous enough for more than one person to work in pleasantly and has a modest breakfast nook. The living room and the master bedroom have ten foot cathedral ceilings.

Sitting on the outdoor space, you may watch golfers or white tail deer work their way along the championship course, wave to Al, one of the alligators who resides in the lagoon across the fairway and occasionally look off to your left for a glimpse of the sea at the inlet between Fripp Island and the neighboring Hunting Island. The sea inlet is roughly 400 yards away. The nearest beach is a restful walk of about 800 yards.

Our home is filled with light and includes casual, appealing furnishings, beach books and inviting spots for reading, and jigsaw puzzles. The living area's huge, open floor plan accepts the cooks among you to prepare a meal without missing the card game at the dining room table or the conversation in the living room.

Conveniences: When you arrive, you'll find the beds all made up for you with towels and toiletries in each bathroom. Not your basic rental. Our home is a home-away-from home with a huge well-supplied kitchen, with three TVs. The one in the living room is HD. with a VCR and a DVD player. The home also includes wifi, a fireplace, air conditioning, cable T.V., coffee maker, sizable comfortable outdoor space, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, full kitchen, microwave, phone with complimentary phoning throughout North America, two bicycles and a sizable charcoal kettle grille for grilling out.

A POST SCRIPT: Choosing a holiday home sight-unseen is always a challenge. We know because we did it too, every summer for 30 years. But more and more we kept coming back to Fripp Island. It suited our life style. Our goal is to help you decide if our home is right for you. So please don't hesitate to ask questions.

This is not a holiday home but a home filled with adore and feelings that it belongs to someone. We have stayed at many places in the USA, but this is the best. A great holiday. Perhaps our home will be right for you.

We wish we could extend our invitation to your family dogs and cats, we appreciate our dogs and cats and always wanted to take ours along. But we have put a lot of work, appreciate and money into making our home inviting and calming for us and our visitors and we are concerned that ordinarily well mannered dogs and cats get nervous in new surroundings and accidents happen. So we have to ask that you not bring your family pets. We also insist that you not smoke in our home.
