We had a family emergency arise and prevent us from going on our Fripp Island vacation. We called the management company within 30 days of our arrival in the hopes that they would be able to help us out. Please understand, their cancellation policy is no refund within 45 days. I know it is asking a lot for some flexibility... More

Thirteen of us are staying in a large house with six bedrooms. Prenty of room for all. Great place for family vacations. This is are third visit and we definitely will be back again. Beach in the mornings and pool in the afternoons and golf in between.

We stayed in a large beach house on north end of island. House was big, beach front, spectacular views. Unfortunately it was also run down and resort maintenance did not fix our broken appliances. Island is nice, lots of green spaces and wide beaches. But amenities are mediocre at best. Only "nice" restaurant is open weekends only, other Boathouse restaurant... More

Fripp Island was spectacular!!! The beaches were clean, spacious and free of crowds. The sand was fine and the waves were perfect for boogie boarding. We loved riding the golf cart around the island. The deer were plentiful as well as the large variety of birds. We also saw several alligators and Dolphins. This was such a perfect vacation for... More

Like someone else on Trip Advisor noted, Fripp Island has become a victim of it's own success. We have been there probably 8-10 times and have seen the prices go up, and the resort become less and less accommodating for guests. I understand the reasoning behind the amenity cards for the pools and amenities, but they never work. From day... More

Absolutely the best beach vacation we've ever had, and we've stayed up and down the coast of South Carolina. The atmosphere is unbelievable, the views are breath taking, and nature comes to your back steps. The beaches are wide open and not crowded, and there is always room at any of the pools. The ice cream shop located in the... More

My wife and I have been vacationing on Fripp for over 10 years. The entire island is gated and ensures to the peacefulness and slow pace of this reclusive island life. You'll find many deer that wander about the island and this adds to the island's unique mystique. Much of the island is under developed and wildlife abounds. Most of... More

Great location, home is beautiful (446 Tarpon) but the management/cleaning company is substandard at best. I have stayed in cheap hotels that were cleaner than this home's bedrooms were upon our arrival. First, the kitchen floor was sticky when we arrived. I brushed it off, wanting to get unpacked to enjoy the beach. When I walked into the bathroom in... More

We've been going to Fripp Island for many years (probably 12 times in about 14 years). The whole ambience is great: all properties close to the ocean; some on the ocean, relaxed way of life, most folks drive golf carts instead of cars, wildlife, water, golf, etc. After this many years, this year may be the last. Unfortunately, I think... More

Fripp Island is my happy place. My family and I always enjoy our time there. I hope to retire there someday. Time slows down and any stress I have just melts away as soon as I enter the island. Beautiful beaches, neat wildlife, great entertainment, things for kids of all ages to do, Camp Fripp,.....it is all top notch!
