We came to Fripp Island as Mr. and Mrs. Claus and found a wonderful Resort. It is a mixture of vacationers and residents. We stayed in Captain John Fripp villas and had a beautiful place. Deer roamed the area at dusk making it as much a nature preserve. We have discussed brining family next time, especially if invited back for...

I've been coming to Fripp Island every year since 1975 when my dad found a small ad in a golf magazine (only way to find things then!). Now come with extended family and children. Fripp is quiet and laid back. That's why we like it. No stoplights, spotty internet but lots of lowcountry charm. Walk the beach, play tennis or...

Been through 6 East Coast Hurricanes. Never seen so many untouched houses and so many downed trees and debris lining every street. Sawgrass boardwalk (Foot/Bike path) gone. Sawgrass Crab Dock gone. Hunting Island fishing pier. Partially gone but closed until 2017. Been going to Fripp since 2012 and love it. It looks like it will be 6 to 8 months...

We have been coming to Fripp Island for almost 20 years. Our children have many wonderful memories of coming to Fripp at different ages. Now all out of college and young professionals in their 20's, they still look forward to coming to Fripp. Truthfully, my opinion is Fripp Island summer programming is designed for much younger children and families, but...

When my family started coming to Fripp over 30 years ago, it was magical. Not many people knew about it and it was mostly residential. There was a nice beach club and a few pools, and that was enough. Now the roads are clogged with golf carts and it is extremely "resort-y," full of rules like carrying your amenity cards...

You truly feel like you stepped into another world when crossing the bridge onto Fripp Island. Wildlife is so abundant. Mosquitos are quite abundant toward dusk. Have drivers license ready when approaching gate house.

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...

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...

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...
