OWNER-MANAGED to ensure you have the BEST possible vacation!

Enjoy a great house just steps from a brand-new boardwalk that leads straight to the beach!


“Shellebration!” has an open, spacious floor plan. The entrance on the main level (which is actually the second story of the house) opens into the living area with ceilings adorned with wood beams and floor to ceiling windows, allowing the Lowcountry sun to shine in. The living room is equipped with a 65-inch plasma TV w/Blu-Ray, a sofa, love seat, and a chair & ottoman. WiFi is free and accessible throughout the home. During the winter, relax by the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with your feet up and a good book. Anytime of year you can enjoy a spacious yet private deck surrounded by beautiful trees, offering a secluded, peaceful retreat.


“Shellebration!” has a beautiful dining room equipped to seat 6 comfortably. You will find everything that you need in the well-lit, newly painted, well-equipped kitchen that offers additional sitting for 6 (so total seating for 12 between the dining room and kitchen).


The master bedroom is located on the main floor and has a new, beautiful king-sized bed with two dressers, two night stands and a walk-in closet. Step out of the master bedroom and into the sun room (which overlooks the front yard) where you can relax at the small table or on the wicker love seat while you sip coffee, read the paper or enjoying a nightcap. The sun room is also equipped with an entrance to the front porch. The master bath offers a dual vanity with bathtub and a shower.


Bedroom Two upstairs includes a new, queen-sized bed with a dresser, a desk and two night stands. Bedroom Three upstairs is spacious and has two twin beds with a dresser, two night stands and a walk-in closet. Bedrooms Two and Three have access to the hallway bath which has a single sink vanity (newly painted) with bathtub and shower.


Venture down the wrought iron spiral staircase or the traditional staircase to find the downstairs living area. Furnishings include a 32-inch flat screen TV w/DVD, a love seat, a sofa and an over-sized chair. There is also a great table with four chairs for fun card games or a puzzle! You will also find another beautiful, stone fireplace. In an adjoining room you can also enjoy some fun game time on the brand new ping pong table!

Two additional bedrooms and a full (newly painted!) bathroom can be found in the lower living area. Bedroom Four is downstairs and is equipped with a new, queen-size bed, a set of twin bunk beds, a dresser and two nightstands. Bedroom Five is also downstairs and offers a new, queen bed with a dresser and two nightstands.

The house has a spacious laundry room (also downstairs) which is equipped with a washer, dryer and second refrigerator. The door of the laundry room leads outside where you will find a fantastic outdoor shower!


“Shellebration!” is only 50 yards from a FABULOUS, BRAND NEW, FLAT boardwalk that leads straight out to the beach. It is perfect for beach carts or strollers as there are no steps to navigate. You can always enjoy our section of the beach as the tide schedules do not effect our beach access (as it does on other parts of the island). The sand is flat and clean - perfect for those long strolls along the water or even a bike ride!


As anyone who has ever stayed at a 'public access' beach can attest, Fripp Island's greatest – and most unique – feature is that it is private. The whole island. You can’t get onto the island the bridge without being an owner or renter. That means no overcrowded beaches and the roads are not choked with the cars of thousands of day-trippers. It’s hard to overstate just how much this adds to the character of Fripp Island – and to your vacation. And we are just a short but BEAUTIFUL ride from Parris Island.


Another thing to keep in mind is that Fripp Island does not have a commercial corridor – which is nice but it also means there is no large, grocery store on the island. There’s a tiny shoppette where you can buy milk, etc., but the nearest real grocery store is in back on St. Helena, about a 15 minute drive. So plan your food, grill, and beverage situation. (Which is why you will LOVE having that 2nd fridge downstairs!)

AMENITY CARDS - Amenity cards are only needed to access the club benefits on the island (such as the pool, golf course and restaurants). You do NOT need an amenity card to access the beach. Should you wish to purchase cards, during the summer season (Memorial Day - Labor Day), each card is $50 for a 7 day pass and $35 for a 4 day pass. During the off season, the passes are $35 for a 7 day pass and $25 for a 4 day pass. These fees are a pass through charge from the Club to us to you with no upcharges. Only those 14 years and older need an amenity card. If you are unsure if you will need amenity cards, we would be glad to talk you through the process before you commit to purchasing them.


For the comfort of our future guests and the cleanliness of our home, we have a strict "no pets" policy - regardless of how well-trained.

Contact us today and come make “Shellebration!” your place at Fripp Island!

Shell and Jennifer Suber purchased this house in 2014

Why Shell and Jennifer Suber chose Fripp Island

This house is PERFECT for families or large groups - JUST STEPS FROM THE BEACH! With two distinct living areas (one up and one down), the kids can have a blast downstairs with the tv / ping pong table / card table / large sofas while the adults relax upstairs in their own living room. The house is surrounded by beautiful trees that give you privacy and shade, yet you are only steps from the beach!

What makes this house unique

STEPS FROM THE BEACH / brand new, flat boardwalk that allows easy access for beach carts or strollers / located on a dead end road / private / quiet / clean. A GREAT place to visit. But don't just take our word for it, look at our past guest reviews!

Perfect Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were spectacular. House was clean and airy with lots of room for the entire family. My wife and I enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the new board walk made it effortless to get our chairs and cooler there. Our children and grandchildren explored all parts of the island and pools.

Jenn and Shell were very helpful and a delight to rent from. Upon leaving everyone express the desire to return to the same house again next year.

Amazing Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family (10) people stayed at this amazing home while attending my son's graduation from USMC bootcamp. The home is approximately 35 minutes from base, but well worth the drive.

It is a beautiful community with tons of wildlife and a stunning beach. Everyone around is friendly and the gaited community is a bonus to ensure that you are safe.

The rooms are big and the separation of the upstairs and downstairs bedrooms and living room is perfect for groups with kids or young adults. It was perfect as us "older" folks stayed upstairs while the young adults (18-21) stayed downstairs and we could hardly hear their yelling while having ping pong competitions. There is also another fridge downstairs which is just perfect.

The kitchen is filled with all the amenities needed for cooking. The grill was perfect for our outside dinners. The decor around the home is also very charming and inviting. It has a fun feel.

We woke every morning to deer walking around and went to bed each night with peaceful community with no loud noises. Perfect when waking up at 4am to go to family day and graduation.

The hosts were amazing as well. There was a mix-up with our passes at the main gate. I called the host, who answered immediately and took care of it. She text on occasion to check in on our stay. That was a huge bonus for me. Customer service plus.

My only regret is not staying thru the holiday weekend.

I gave our family this trip as a Christmas gift this year. We've never been to Fripp but it quickly became our new favorite place! The wildlife (deer) come right up to you and the beach is clean and isn't over crowded (matter of fact, we had it to ourselves a lot!) Our house was perfect and just steps from the beach and the owners are always available for any questions/concerns you may have! We loved it and DEFINATELY recommend!
