The Old Olive Inn is our family's Fripp Island vacation home, and is located on the 17th fairway of the Ocean Point golf course. We only rent to our family, friends and friends of friends. Our home can sleep 8 people. We use our home to entertain our own family multiple times a year.
The master bedroom has a king size bed with a private bathroom with two sinks and a stand up shower. Next to the master bedroom is a queen bedroom. The last bedroom on that side of the home has two twin beds. A full bathroom, with a tub and two sinks is located in the hallway between the queen bedroom and the twin bedroom. On the other side of the home is our Carolina room which has a king size bed and a day bed. A half bath is located near the kitchen/bar area and just outside the Carolina room. Our living room has great vistas of the golf course, a pond and the Fripp Inlet.
Our kitchen has new granite counter tops and a new gas range. We have two kitchen sinks and two dishwashers, with many pots, pans and silverware that you would have in your own home. This is not your typical rental property. Our bar area has two modest glass front fridges and a modest sink with a coffee maker. We also have tons of spices and seasonings.

Beaufort, SC vacation rental booking tips:
Finding your best deal:
- Reserve your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacations during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Summer months are the most expensive season in Fripp Island. Reserve your Beaufort, SC rental in Fall or Spring months to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
- Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host if your family qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
- Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for days missed as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
- Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Beaufort, SC area visitors guide magazines that include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.
Planning, picking, and booking the rightvacation home:
- Select your vacation dates and maximum budget.
- Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. Old Olive Inn "Friends & Family" Vacation Home with Amenity Cards has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
- Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is normally accessible online. Otherwise, contact the host before you book the property. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches. You'll need to determine what configuration is suitable for your family.
- Do your family pets travel with you? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Ask your host before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or could be applied to your contract.
- If there's a specific Beaufort, SC attraction you love, look for rentals that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
- Appropriate accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.
Advice for a fantastic stay:
- Take a copy of the host's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your .
- Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, intercom or coffee maker. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent lots of issues.
- Lock your rental while you are out. Protect the owner's property and your things!
- To make certain no damages are attributed to your visit, note any problem areas upon your arrival. Speak to the rental manager immediately to relay any damages. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be valuable.
- Be respectful. Frequently, adjacent homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking policies reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
- Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
- Just before checking out, complete a walk-through to make sure you did not leave anything behind. Remember to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden treasure. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Record a video to document the condition of the property.
- Did you have a great time? Most rental home management companies make it easy for customers to provide comments. If your rental and/or property manager was terrific, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
