We stayed for 12 days on Fripp. 6 nights at a place about 300 yards from the ocean and 6 nights at a place 30 yards from the ocean. Both places were clean and really fit our family. We have been to Fripp 4 times and so we knew that we needed to load up on groceries. We did not... More

Fripp island is a wonderful place for families. The national Park gets wonderful reviews for it's beaches,, but coming from Florida with white sand in clear water I found it a bit disappointing but it's very lovely and natural. There are very few restaurants but had to nearby Beaufort, A charming town.

Stayed on the island for several days. The beach was fine otherwise it was mediocre and very dated. For what you pay and having to show your identification to get on the island, you would expect much more. Our suite was outdated, the bed was uncomfortable, the water was cold and some of the furniture was stained and dirty. The... More

We have been going to South Carolina for the past four years and this is the best experience so far. Our stay on Harbor Island was very nice but our stay on Fripp was absolutely fantastic. We arrived at our condo and we we were blown away by the view and how clean and beautifully decorated it was. I can't... More

We made a last minute 2 night reservation to visit Fripp Island for the first time. We were pleased to discover that we could get an ocean front condo. The scheduling process was simple and smooth...however because the price quoted was high I initially declined the reservation. When I told the agent I would look elsewhere she offered a 10%... More

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
