About the property

Sunrise/sunset Views With Fripp Island Marina Views From Every Room!!!

**Please note cottage is not suited for children and amenity cards are not available at this time.

Cottage is located less than 50 ft from F.I. Marina (so you can have your kayak in the water within 60 seconds) and a quick 5 minute walk to the beach!! (less if "Big Al " is chasing you). Those darn gators ... they're such jokesters! Gotta love 'em.

Enjoy fantastic sunrise views from back deck as well as 1st master bedroom and sunset views from 2nd master and front balcony located off kitchen ( I suggest a nice California sparkling as sunsets always make one thirsty). ;)))

Cottage has undergone extensive renovation with the completion date of July 31st, 2015.

Construction consists of replacing all existing windows and doors with upgraded custom windows AND the addition of 12 new casement windows added to take full advantage of the breathtaking views.

Cottage is flooded with light and has a bay window in each room including kitchen, den and both masters. Designer kitchen has additional window over sink facing marina.

This is a chef inspired kitchen with counter depth s.s. Sub-Zero, electric Viking Designer Series stove, s.s. exhaust hood with chimney, s.s. G.E. Café dishwasher, built-in under counter microwave, and more importantly true custom kitchen cabinets by master cabinetmaker High quality cookware, s.s. apron sink, and high-end granite. All of this allows you to make the perfect margarita at least that's what I told my husband. Hardwood floors throughout. Designer décor is light gray and creamy whites with custom painted Annie Sloan Chalk Paint pieces throughout. Parisian meets Nantucket. The king Bradshaw Kirchofer bed in 1st master bedroom was featured in a National ad for Sweet Elle Furniture Co. and looks out over the marina from the foot of the bed with additional 6 x 6 ft picture window to the right of bed looking out over tidal creek with sunrise view. And if your lucky enough you just might get dolphin with your sunrise. 2nd master suite faces west and has oil painting quality views of sunsets but you won't care because you'll be on the front balcony with the California sparkling. Cottage is two levels separated by an 18 step turn staircase that stops at the top with casement windows overlooking marina from ar. 25 ft. high elevation. (this is where I heard my husband say the very rare words "you were right - money well spent").

Master suites have en suite double vanity baths with garden tub and separate shower. Custom bed linens with Peacock Alley and Sferra bedding and Egyptian cotton sheets. No amenity cards available at this time but some of the best restaurants are off the island and Gay Fish Co. is a 10 minute drive from the island.

Additionally, 2 bikes, and 2 kayaks are included so no need to rent them and of course the best thing about Fripp is it's white sand beach!

This is our first (and probably last) :) beach cottage which explains why I went a little overboard (no pun intended) but it is in my opinion perfect and exactly what I would want in a beach cottage! Around 1400 sq. ft so not too big and not too small. Just right! The perfect romantic getaway to reconnect, refresh and just relax. We have named our perfect little cottage "Serenfrippity". We think you'll understand why.

P.S.- Don't worry about Big Al- he just goes after bad golfers.

**Amenity cards allow access to golf courses, pools and restaurants. Rentals including golf carts can be rented through service providers other than the resort. Marina Store and Spring Tide Market for groceries, sundries and other necessities do not require amenity cards. Best restaurants are off island and daily, fresh caught seafood can be purchased at Mainline Market or Gay Fish Company just minutes off island allowing you to prepare fresh, gourmet meals in your own kitchen with the a champagne view from your table.

Amazing view and impeccable condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the amazing condo. Top of the line brand new kitchen was a dream to cook in, and the 180 view of the marsh was fantastic—such a relaxing escape! We truly couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect spot on fripp; everything about the experience was easy and fun. I honestly have NOTHING but perfect feedback about our stay! We can't wait to go back again.

The views from this cottage are by far the most beautiful I have seen on a beach trip. They change hourly. You can just sit and watch the marsh and ocean for hours, either outside on the porch or inside, as the windows inside are so abundant and bright!!! The scenery never gets boring. A wonderful place to unwind and rejuvenate. You have to see it in person to fully appreciate the beauty. Book a trip! The décor is also stunning and everything is very comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with the best appliances and cookware. The beach is very close and the deer are adorable.....I cannot say enough good things...I didn't want to leave!

For 2 Adults Wanting 7 Stars

  • 5 of 5

We say 7 Stars because it's better than 5. The kitchen is soup to nuts, Sub-Zero to Viking, every gourmet's wish. Matching master en suite bedrooms. W/D. View 180. Balconies, E&W. It is so clean, we took our shoes off at the front door and hope everyone does until we return. It is the owner's dream which they are sharing for now.

Fantastic cottage with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is wonderful! Beautifully decorated but very comfortable. There is practically a view of the marsh or sound from every room. I spent most of my time lounging on the back porch that is a stones throw from the marsh. Incredible view of the sunrise from your bed! Attention to every detail was considered all the way down to the linens! Hope to be back very soon!
