Sensational new Boardwalk to the Beach only 2 homes away.
Savor uncrowded beaches, fishing, boating, and bicycle paths all over the island.
Fripp Island is a wildlife sanctuary, with deer grazing in the yards, over 170 species of birds, alligators in the lakes, dolphins playing in the waves, and Loggerhead sea turtles nesting and hatching on the shores.
The main home sleeps 9 in beds and 2 more on a fold out futon couch. The guest home sleeps 3 in beds and 2 more in a full sleeper couch. Total 12 in beds plus 4 on fold out couch/futon.
I am not currently offering luxury cards and am unsure whether or not to make that commitment this year since everything is kind of "half open" right now and guests are likely to have to wait in long lines or be sent away from pools, eateries and other service that require amenities cards. This could change at any time, but please inquire first if they are important to you.
I am usually open to renting either home separately, especially for a last min. booking.

Tips for getting the best Fripp Island rental home experience:
How to get the best rental value:
- To get the best vacation home for your budget, we suggest reserving in Fall or Spring months. You'll benefit from lower rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of giant crowds at popular Beaufort, SC attractions and restaurants.
- The earlier your group can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The best rental properties are booked early. Booking your rental six - twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation home.
- Owners sometimes offer discounts for veterans and active duty military. Check with your property manager to see if special offers are available for your group before you book.
- Property managers typically offer guests an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally will cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for details.
- Often, property management companies supply Beaufort, SC area travel guides that include special deals, either offered independently by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Beaufort, SC visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.
Choosing the best rental home in Fripp Island:
- Choose a group leader, choose your dates, and select a budget.
- Decide how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your group requires. Ocean Views, Mid-Island, Main 3BR2BA + Guest 1BR1BA House s has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
- Specific information about bedrooms and bed types is often accessible on booking pages. If not, call the property owner before you reserve the property. Remember that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches.
- If there's an individual Beaufort, SC beach you are crazy about, browse homes that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
- Appropriate accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
- If your family is vacationing with pets, you'll need to search for a pet-friendly property. Ask for details on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Some property managers charge additional pet fees.
Tips for a great stay:
- Get the owner's phone number and check in/check out procedures for your rental.
- During check-in, make note of any damages to the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
- Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or WIFI setup. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents quite a few difficulties.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful visitors bothering your life at home. Use the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great restaurants and places you would have not otherwise known!
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can often help. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
- Lock your rental while you're away. Keep your property safe!
- Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, take a walk through the property to make sure you've collected all personal items. Remember to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Please make sure to walk through the rental a final time and look for any damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the manager isn't available, ensure that you take photos and video of the property to record its condition.
- Did your group have a great vacation? Most vacation rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or property manager was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was imperfect and they failed to address it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
