5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Ocean Front Home with fabulous views.
About Rosanne McAlister
In 1999 we drove onto Fripp Island for the 1st time. That same day, without ever spending a night on Fripp Island, we put in an offer on our 1st home there. Best decision we ever made. In 2010, we bought 'Sea Oats'. Our daughters and sons in law and 5 grandchildren adore Fripp Island. It has given us years of many happy memories. And many families return to our home every year for their family’s vacation. We know 'Sea Oats' can be the same wonderful experience for you.
Rosanne McAlister purchased this House in 2010
Why Rosanne McAlister chose Fripp Island
It’s all about The View!! Many people have told us that we have the best ocean view on Fripp Island. Since we are center island, it is wonderful to have a nice beach 24/7. Because of the home’s configuration, our upper deck is protected from chilling winds. On a 60 degree sunny day, our deck usually registers 70 degrees. So even in off season, it is a great place to enjoy the sun. The upper deck has 6 chaise lounges and a picnic table for 8. The covered lower deck with ocean view provides a wonderful outdoor experience even on rainy days. We love looking up at the stars at night and the dolphins in the morning. Every year, sea turtles lay their eggs near our house. Wake up early and you might see a Mother Turtle going back to sea. Later in the summer, it is so fun to watch when the baby turtles hatch! The Master Deck is also the perfect place to get some sun. We loved the ocean view, Fripp Island’s soft, silky sand, and the style of the home. We like the fact that it is open yet it has several different seating and deck areas. So it is a great house for gathering together but also for finding moments of privacy.
What makes this House unique
Our grandchildren love Camp Fripp, and our daughter loves her time off in the mornings! The center island location is perfect. We can walk down the beach to the Beach Club in about 10 minutes.

Fantastic Family Vacation
Sea Oats is absolutely fantastic. The location right beside the public walkway was great especially if you are taking a lot of stuff to the beach with you as we did with two small children. Rosanne was super. She had instructions with everything in the house and offered suggestions for eating, sightseeing and even golf cart rides. Her house is beautiful with the best view. We would definitely like to stay again
Thank you, Teresa! You were wonderful to work with, and you took great care of the house. I’m would be thrilled for you to return one day.
The Perfect Beach Rental
This home is located at the ideal location on Fripp with uncrowded beach 24/7. There is nothing like sitting on the upper deck feeling the ocean breeze, seeing the sea oats blow in the wind, and watching our children play on the beach or enjoying low-country boil, corn hole, or a good book on the lower deck. The house itself is beautiful, inviting, and comfortable. It lacks for nothing!
Wonderful house and location
Last summer my family came to this part of the beach and loved the waves. They were happy to be there without hauling things from a distance. The house is well supplied--the best we have ever had. The owner could not have been more helpful and answered questions promptly. Everything was 5 star all the way!
