  • Villa
  • Approximately 962 square feet

Our Tennis Villa, "Surf Shack III" is located in the heart of Fripp Island, right off of Tarpon Boulevard, behind the Tennis & Pickle ball courts.

Our 2 story villa, with spiral staircase, has been upgraded (2023) with all new furnishings, rugs, coastal decor, lamps, chandeliers and ceiling fans. The King bed has a new bed, new linens and the most comfortable "Casper" pillows.

Be mesmerized by the magnificant Salt Marsh that we are proud to call our back yard. Savor the broad vistas of the handsome spartina grasses and the ever changing tide waters that fill and empty out, twice a day.

Watch the Osprey, Red tailed Hawk, Kingfisher, and the Great blue heron (just to name a few) searching for their next tasty treat.

Don't be startled when you see antlers pass by the porch. It's just the Deer wandering by looking for a nice spot to take a nap.

We include our newer electric golf cart, that is a little lifted with bigger tires named "Big Red", for you to savor with your rental.

The Beach Club Complex is across the street along with the open air "Sandbar", Adult swimming pool, Olympic swimming pool, freshly refreshed Exercise Center, food court, Beach Club restaurant, and Ocean View Parlor, not to mention the Majestic Atlantic Ocean and our striking white sandy beaches.

We hope you choose to stay with us and appreciate the wonders of visiting with the Marsh as your backdrop. Our Fripp Island friend and Lowcountry book author, the late Pat Conroy, best describes the salt marsh like this, "At sunset we watch the saltwater tides rising with ideal congruence to the rising moon. No matter the time of day, the creek spreads out in the thrown coinage of sunset, bright as a centerpiece in the transcendental green of the great salt marsh".

Tips to get the very best vacation home experience:

Finding your best deal:

  • Summertime is high season in Fripp Island. Reserving a rental home in the Fall or Spring is a great way to save money on your rental home. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of suitable homes. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season.
  • In the Beaufort, SC area, The earlier your group can reserve a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation rentals are reserved very early. Booking your rental property up to 12 months before your vacation is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental home.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host whether your group qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
  • Property managers typically offer renters an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed trip time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Find a copy of your local Beaufort, SC visitors guide when you check-in. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, travel guides contain deals for nearby shops and restaurants.

How to select the best vacation home:

  • First and foremost, have your family agree to the best dates and a budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your family needs. Tennis Courts in front, and the ever changing Marsh in back. Golf cart included. has 1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always available on booking pages. If not, email the host before booking the property. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • Visiting for a specific event or attraction? Try a map search to browse nearby rentals.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask the host about pets before booking.

More considerations:

  • Add the property manager's phone number to your phone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • At Check-in, record any issues with the property and immediately contact the host. Record all coorespondence.
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful visitors disrupting your peace. Apply the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and places you would have never otherwise known!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Lock your vacation home while you are out and about. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • Upon check-out, take a final walk-through to confirm you didn't forget anything. Make sure to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Leave a review! Property managers rely on good feedback to compel new bookings. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationers will will be grateful for your review and help them have the best future vacation. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
