  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 1416 square feet

The Otter House is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath bungalow with a beachy vibe and a captivating view of Blue Heron Lake. Spotting gators sunbathing on the banks, mullet jumping, and the ever-changing parade of birds provides Lowcountry casual entertainment all day. The enormous rear deck is the ideal place to hang out, boasting something for everybody with a raised outdoor lounge, a 6-person dining table, and a bar top offering front row vistas of the lake and deer that frequently pass through the back yard.

Every detail was carefully considered during a full remodel finished in 2023. Inside you can chef it up in the gourmet kitchen with vistas of the lake or lounge on the comfortable couch. When the day is done, retire to one of three well-appointed bedrooms. Each of the primary and guest bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the 4-twin bunk room has a full bath across the hall.

In the morning appreciate your coffee while you watch the sun rise over the lake. Take your pick for coffee: old school drip, Keurig, or Philips 3200 Series Entirely-Automatic Espresso Machine with LatteGo + Iced Coffee Maker. As the day heats up, savor plenty of ice from our dedicated ice machine in the walk-in pantry. Fill your cooler and your insulated cup, grab a few chairs from our beach gear stash, hop on the rental golf cart supplied, and take the 5-min. ride to the beach.

If the beach isn't your thing, you can always play pickle ball or tennis, work out in the new gym, take in any one of multiple pools on the island (adult, Olympic or Cabana Club), throw a line in at the fishing pier or Bonita Bridge, play at either of the two spectacular golf courses on the island, shoot some hoops at the club or Davis Adore Park, horseback ride at Camelot Farms, book a captained ride on the Lil' Fripper or the Fripper II, rent your own boat for the day, or hop on one of the bicycles in our stash and go for a ride on the bicycle path. How ever you spend your day, we hope you relax and enjoy this place as much as we have.

A 4-seat Fripp Island Resort golf cart is included with your stay (excluding monthly units). Many guests park their cars upon arrival and use the golf cart as their primary form of transportation. It is a great way to leisurely take in the natural breathtaking beauty of the island. After dinner, hop on the golf cart and head to the Food Court for some ice cream!

Also supplied with your rental are up to 8 guest cards, with a value of up to $400. These cards are required for access to all resort amenities, including golf and tennis courses, eateries and bars, swimming pools, and more. Guest cards offer exclusive access to discounted prices on golf and tennis.

Stressful day? What are you waiting for? Go ahead and book your next get away today. We don't ask for a giant commitment, and you'll feel much better once you've locked in some dates. Unlike many properties on the island, this beach bungalow can be booked for just a 2 nighttime minimum off peak and 3 nighttime minimum for peak.

*Note with gators in the water and all, it isn't safe to swim, boat or fish in Blue Heron Lake. No worries, there are plenty of other places on the island to do those things.

Beaufort, SC vacation rental home tips:

Sticking to a rental budget:

  • Summer is high season in the Beaufort, SC area. To get the largest rental within budget, we highly recommend booking in Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of giant crowds at your favorite restaurants and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Book your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer vacation rentals during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective vacation rental company or host whether your family qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property management companies frequently offer guests an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed days as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Look for your local Beaufort, SC area magazine upon checking in. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local articles, visitors guides contain money saving offers on nearby tours, shops, and attractions.

Make a plan and pick your prefectrental:

  • Select a group lead, choose your vacation week, and choose a spending budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your family requires. The Otter House - New to VRBO! Resort Access Included! has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always accessible on booking websites. If they are not listed, call the property management company before booking the vacation property. Remember that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which usually includes pull-out couches and bunk beds.
  • Is your family looking for specific amenities? Most rental websites include search filters with amenity lists. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. .
  • Are you traveling with furry, four-legged family members? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your agreement! Additional fees or might be applied to your contract.

Know before you go:

  • We recommend storing the owner's information in your smartphone.
  • To make sure that damages aren't linked to your stay, inspect the rental for any problem areas during arrival. Make contact with the rental manager immediately to report any pre-existing damages. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having the recorded issues and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or washer/dryer. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent lots of issues.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll magnify your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often an excellent resource to find the best local scenic spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to rent beach equipment, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Keep the property locked while you're gone! Don't let crooks ruin your family vacation.
  • On check-out day, take a walk-through to confirm you didn't forget anything. Remember to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a wonderful vacation? Most rental managers make it easy for guests to provide reviews. If your rental and/or property manager was great, they always love to hear your praise. 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 it a point as part of your feedback.
