Drop Anchor welcomes you to Fripp Island with open doors. This home has the classic southern beach home decor that makes it special for any family that vacations here. Launch a kayak from your private dock for a morning ride through the canal and marshes. Go fishing, crabbing or clamming - just steps from your back door. This, two level home provides enough room for the whole family or multiple families. The sunroom is perfect for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening. The garage/game room is great for the whole family with plenty of entertainment. While you stay here, you will have the golf cart for your use to explore all of Fripp island.
The main level has the living, dining, kitchen, laundry area, and sunroom. The two master bedrooms are also located on the main level. The master bedroom (King) facing the canal on the left has a private bathroom and TV. You can also walk out on your private balcony to catch the first morning sun looking out over the smooth waters of the canal at daybreak. The second master (king) bedroom has access to a shared bathroom that opens up to the hall opposite the kitchen. Both rooms have television and King size beds.
Upstairs has four additional bedrooms with two additional bathrooms. Each room has queen size beds and 3 bedrooms have an additional twin size bed. Do you need the bedrooms separated from the sounds of family and friends having a great time? At the top of the stairs, you can close the door to the bedrooms to either allow someone upstairs to sleep or the folks downstairs quiet time to talk to one another.
The kitchen is designed for southern cooking and is well stocked with your kitchen needs. The kitchen opens up to the living room and has an opening to the dining room for easy serving. The dining room seats 6 comfortably and can even sit two more with extra chairs on the ends. The breakfast nook in the sunroom seats 4 additional family members.
There are a total of 5 televisions here and 5 DVD players. If you still have VCR tapes, there is 1 VCR. There is cable TV to 4 of the televisions. One television is only provided for movies or games in one of the bedrooms upstairs. There is no internet at this home but you will have internet access just minutes away at the beach club. Free long distance is available if cell phone use is limited.
Outside is a charcoal grill (remember to bring charcoal) for cooking out and outdoor showers to clean the sand off before entering the house. Right out back is the private dock for fishing, crabbing, or just hanging out and enjoying the scenery.
Beach access: Travel down Wahoo Drive back towards Bonito Road (about 10 minutes walking or less riding the golf cart) and the beach access is directly across Tarpon on Bonito Road. Or you can drive and park (golf cart or car) at the Beach Club and spend the day at this location, with easy access to the Adult pool and the Children's pool. The Beach Club complex also has the Food Court where you can pick up pizza, Starbucks Coffee, ice cream and more (this is a favorite with the kids).
On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 foot tides.

The house was very nice. We have an annual family reunion in Fripp and have rented many houses there. The bedrooms are large and the house is spaciousa and clean. Good location. The only drawback is that there are alligators in the canal in back of the house. They crossed through the yard several times and one night one of them stayed under the back porch for several hours. This might not be the best house for someone with small children because of the alligators.
