  • 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 marvelous 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 modernized Exercise Center, food court, Beach Club restaurant, and Ocean View Parlor, not to mention the Majestic Atlantic Ocean and our charming 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".

If you are looking for additional units for vacation or if this property is booked, We also have Surf Shack I & Surf Shack II for rent on the Island. Both have been upgraded and decorated with Coastal sophistication for your calming & rejuvenating vacation.

Vacation rental home tips:

Sticking to your rental home budget:

  • In the Beaufort, SC area, The sooner your group can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The best rental properties are booked early. Reserving your vacation home six to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and book your vacation home.
  • Summer months are high season in the Beaufort, SC area. To find the most suitable rental for your budget, we highly recommend booking in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite Beaufort, SC restaurants and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Some property managers offer discounts or promotional rates for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if rate reductions are available for your family before you book.
  • Booking websites typically offer renters an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any days missed as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for additional information.
  • Often, management companies supply Beaufort, SC area visitor guide magazines that include coupons, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a relationship with the property 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.

Finding the best rental home:

  • Select a group lead, choose your trip dates, and select a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group requires. Tennis Courts in front, and the ever changing Marsh in back. Golf cart included. has 1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is commonly accessible on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, contact the property management company before you book the rental. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds.
  • If your group is bringing pets, search for a rental that allows animals. Request specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Some hosts require additional pet deposits and fees.
  • Visiting for a single attraction? Try a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are included before reserving a rental.

Advice for a smooth stay:

  • Add the host's phone number to your phone. Understand and take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Feel free to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • During check-in, document any damages to the property and immediately alert the owner. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like obnoxious visitors disrupting your peaceful home. Use the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and attractions you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can frequently help. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • When it's time to leave, complete a final walk-through to make sure you haven't leave anything behind. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did you have a wonderful time? Most rental home management companies make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your rental and/or property manager was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
