Plenty to do on island, or on one of the nearby islands. With 2 excellent golf courses, soft sand beaches, tennis, bicycling, kayaking, fishing, boating, and plenty of wildlife to see, Fripp has something for everyone.

2 great golf courses, no fighting over space to lay your beach towel. low volume of people and just a great place for families. The food was amazing and Golf courses in great shape. Tennis courts also kept up with well along with clay courts. I will defiantly be bringing my family back here every year.

We have been coming here for the last six years and it is absolute heaven. The amenities and staff are top notch and the few times we have had minor issues they go above and beyond to make it right. We have stayed in several different homes and all have been great. The family atmosphere is perfect for those with... More

We love this island! A perfect get away from life! We rent a condo or home, bring our food, bikes, beach chairs, and don't leave for a week. The bike trails are clearly marked, and if you don't bike, the golf cart rentals are plentiful, many rental come with one included. Beautiful beach, golf, and tennis.

We had two rentals for our multiple families visiting Fripp Island for a week. One rental was on the marsh and the other was near the beach. It was an interesting week.

Loved spending time this summer on this private island. Lots of golf carts, plenty of beaches (most of which are deserted early in the morning). Loved seeing the sea turtle nests (I did not touch!) and tons of shells to collect. This is a great place to relax and spend quality time with the family.

We visited Fripp Island for the first time in August 2015 by renting a house from an owner. I hope I'm placing this review in the right spot because we did not stay at a "resort", just a house.

We spent a week on Fripp Island as our annual family trip (12 of us). We rented a large house that would accommodate us. Our rental house was very nice and roomy. Our issue was the property management. We arrived on a Saturday about an hour after their check-in time. The cleaning staff was still in the house cleaning. We... More

Annabelle, I am sorry to hear that your experience with us was a negative one! One of the things that makes Fripp a unique place to visit is the fact that all of our homes are actually privately owned and then rented through the resort. This gives our homeowners the opportunity to exercise creative control over the personalization of their... More
