We have been home owners on this fabulous island for 30 years and have watched it go from wonderful to the absolute pits as far as food and activities. The owners and management have let aminities go to rock bottom! We have eaten at Bonita Boathouse twice this week and both meals and service have been horrible! Thank goodness I... More

We have stayed at Fripp before and were disappointed this visit. I agree with all that the previous reviews stated with regards to the beauty and tranquility of the island. Food is sub par so we always leave the island to eat, with the exception of the night we arrive. We were there during off season and understood that many... More

We have been going to Fripp Island at least once a week a year for the past 20 years. The island is the perfect place to getaway and relax by the ocean, golf, kayak, fish, and bike. The island is more of a place of peace and privacy than most other beaches in the area. With that said, beachgoers of... More

We have visited fripp island for many years. The island is a wonderful place to visit. Great golf on two courses. Tons of wildlife on the island. From deer to alligators. The beach is nice and easy to get to with golf carts. They have many restaurants to choose from on the island. Or a quick trip to beufort.

My wife and I discovered this island on a corporate business trip. Fripp has some really nice condos and villas, plenty of trails to ride bikes and walk, a golf course, and several deer to avoid hitting with your car at night. The condo rented for us was quite nice and inviting, although I wouldn't recommend the smaller units for... More

Great temps for alligator sightings. Huge alligators. 12 feet plus x3 seen. Also great bird sightings, eagles, osprey, wood stork. Accommodation we had was a lovely updated,... More

We enjoyed a rental home off of Tarpon Dr in June 2014. Our 3 generation family, with ages ranging from 4 to 70, absolutely enjoyed the stay. The beach was less than a 5 minute walk away, and the pools for us were just a quick golf card ride away. This was our first visit to Fripp Island, and we... More

122 Captain John Fripp. Waited over an hour past check-in because our room wasn't ready. Had not been cleaned and was VERY dirty! Management was rude and uncaring. Condo is old and dirty! Not worth what we paid for the week!
