Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Great location on this three and a half mile island, our tennis villa is just across the street from the Beach, Beach Club, Food Court, and swimming pools. A large deck provides a beautiful, serene view of the marsh. Wildlife abounds - herons, egrets, pelicans, and deer have all been spotted from the deck. Centrally located on the island, this townhouse villa is recently painted and redecorated for your comfort. It is fully furnished and linens are provided. We also provide games, cards, and reading materials for your enjoyment.

On the first floor, the master bedroom has a king-size bed with generous closet and drawer space. In addition to a full bath, dining room, and fully-equipped kitchen, there is also a living room that faces the marsh and deck with a sleeper sofa. A TV and VCR are also located in the living room. Our villa has wireless internet for your use. An alcove in the kitchen houses the washer and dryer. A spiral staircase connects the first floor to the second. The upstairs loft bedroom (decorated with lots of fish) has three twin beds. There is also a full bath, large closet, and dresser, as well as an additional TV and VCR. We request No Smoking inside the villa. Our villa is cleaned prior to your arrival and cleaned again after your departure. Our housekeeper takes pride in careful cleaning of our home.

Fripp Island is a great family vacation place if you are interested in finding a clean, quiet, relaxing beach. There are two golf courses on either end of the island. In addition to the fitness center, Olympic-size pool, and adult pool across the street from the villa, there are also two other pools located on the island. Golf carts and bicycles are available for rental at the Marina. Bike paths cover most of the island. There are also summer programs and camps available for children, as well as charter fishing trips and other nature activities for the adults. Fishing is also available on the nearby Hunting Island 'Paradise Pier.' The beach is easily accessible from the tennis villas (across the street and behind the Beach Club). Fripp is a gated community with a security guard at the entrance.

Our unit comes with a club membership which allow you to purchase amenity cards that enable you to have access to all of the amenities on the island. Golfing is also available off the island at Cat Island and other nearby courses.

If you are interested in exploring off of the island, Beaufort is a beautiful historic city with walking and guided tours. We are also close to Hilton Head and historic Charleston.

Give us a try, and you're sure to come back again and again!

About Peggy & Bill Spencer

We first experienced Fripp in 1967 when Peggy's family purchased a house on the island. At the time, there were only five homes on the island. While a lot has change on the island, it continues to be a beautiful place that is great for vacations or for year round living.

Peggy & Bill Spencer purchased this villa in 1997

Why Peggy & Bill Spencer chose Beaufort area

We love it being a gated community and have never found a place as beautiful as Fripp. The tennis villas are in a great location and affordable. My wife's family began coming to Fripp in 1967.

What makes this villa unique

Peaceful, easy life style. Our favorite time at the beach is at dusk. Villa overlooks marsh which teems with wildlife and which changes color throughout the day and season depending on the tide and sun. In the summer there are camps and activities for children. The bike paths make biking an easy, safe, fun family activity and our villa comes with two bikes (others are available to rent on the island). Deep sea fishing is available from the marina. Golfers enjoy two different courses, and if you play tennis as we do, there are eight beautifully maintained soft courts, as well as various clinics and lessons with a wonderful pro.

Comfortable, well stocked, gorgeous view, owners easy to work with!

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay at the Spencer's tennis villa! It was well equipped for all our needs and we love the location. The furniture, bedding and carpet were dated and showing their wear but this would not deter me from renting this villa again! Great value for the price!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every year our son and his young family stay on Fripp Island the week of July 4. They have stayed in many different places over the years. My daughter in law said this was the perfect place for them and the best they have ever been in. 1 king bed downstairs and 3 single beds were great.

Located right by the pool and eating places

  • 5 of 5

Location couldn't have been better. Loved the separate space upstairs for the kids. Comfy bed. Nice HOT water. I forgot to sign the book, but we didn't want to leave. We loved everything about Fripp and would love to stay here again!!!

Lovely view and peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at this home. Plenty of room, clean, and the view from the porch is amazing! I actually stood in front of their deck and had deer eating right out of my hand! Easy and quick access to the food court and swimming pools across the street. Finally, arranging my stay with Peggy was so easy and simple. I would highly recommend staying here.

This rental was far better than I had expected!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was most definately better than the listing describes. The photos do not do it justice. There are multiple upgrades including the television also not shown in photos. The island is private and constantly monitored leaving us with complete piece of mind allowing us to focus on our trip. The Ocean is literally a 2 minute walk from the home with a beach far bigger than any beach we had seen from any other island. It was well cleaned and functional. We were overwhelmed with the all around experience. After this stay, we will never stay in a hotel again. Thank you to the owners and cleaning stand! We had a perfect stay!!

Nearest Point of Interest

Our villa is conveniently located in the middle of the island, just across from the Beach Club with its restaurant, bar, food court, shops, and swimming pools. Our location allows for convenient bike rides to either end of the island. Beaufort is a historic city well worth exploring, as is Hunting Island State park.
