The island and the beach are beautiful. There are no hotels and traffic is great, especially if you rent a golf cart. We stayed in the Captain John Fripp Villas in mid-April. The ocean-view is fabulous. The villa, on the hand, was somewhat disappointing. Its rated 'Silver' which means the decor is somewhat dated so I expected that. I was... More

Well where to start... My girlfriends family rents a home each summer on Fripp and have been avid Fripp fans since she was young. Last year i went on my first Fripp trip with them and was expecting a marvelous resort with swim up bars and mermaids... or something along those line. I am from Charleston and grew up on... More

We have shared beach front houses on Fripp Island on two occasions and each time was pleased with the accommodations and easy access to the beach. Grandchildren loved the beach and enjoyed the activities center. They spotted deer and alligators on golf cart rides, enjoyed flying kites, and had good times at the pools. Homes rentals seem to include a... More

2'nd Floor Up North Hampton Condo's have the most amazing views!!! We open the sliding glass door and from the den & kitchen you see ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but ocean!!! Pool is cooler than the rest of the island's and this end is just SO unbelievably quiet!!! Even during 4th of July week you hardly hear a squeak!!! Don't have to... More

I can't think of a better place to take the family. It is back to the simple life which after running around all the time with work and kids, I truly enjoy. Yep, the closest grocery store is a half hour, but if you are smart and plan well, then this won't be an issue. Even if you have to... More

Because of beach erosion and accretion it is important to select a rental house or condo that is easily accessible (beach extends too far into the Ocean) and is not covered by the ocean during most of the day. With the right house or condo on the right location it is a fabulous place for a family beach or golf... More

We went to Fripp for a niece's wedding. We went 9/11-15 so it wasn't the busy season. We loved it. Because there are no hotels on the island, only vacation rental homes and condos, it wasn't crowded at all. There isn't much for food so stop in Beaufort for groceries before heading onto the island. We really only played on... More

We have been coming to Fripp for almost ten years and love our time there EVERY year! The island is getting more crowded each summer, and not all rentals are the same. However, we always regret when our time at Fripp comes to an end. The shelling boat is a great family experience. We have watched the dolphins swim at... More

Just stayed one week at this property. It is rated Gold and I asked for Gold or Platinum when I booked. the location is great, beach walk and pool just steps from the back door, but the property is in need of lots of maintenance. The deck was dirty, the furniture on the deck was plastic, the furniture inside is... More

After stumbling upon Fripp Island while researching possible locations for our family summer vacation, we booked a home near the marina through vrbo.com. The home in which we stayed was lovely and had the most amazing views of the tidal marsh (especially at sunset). It included amenity cards for 2 adults and a use of a golf cart--both things I...
