Enjoy a great beach vacation at 419 Captain John Fripp Villa, "Relaxing by the Sea". How would you like to wake up every morning looking out on the Atlantic Ocean and white sandy beaches? This villa is oceanfront with the master bedroom facing the ocean. Everything is on the ground level with zero stairs. You can see forever from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. The ocean is just a quick 1 minute walk through the dunes. We also have a pool available to our guests about 100 yards from the back door. The villa has been completely renovated and is beautiful. There are all new appliances in the kitchen, new countertops, and new cabinets. The bathrooms have also been completely renovated and now feature beautiful tile walk-in showers.
The master bedroom is oceanfront with a queen size bed and private luxurious bathroom. Sip a cup of coffee out on your private patio in the mornings or have a cup of wine counting the stars at night! The second bedroom has a queen size bed with access to the second bathroom across the hall. Each has the finest linens and furnishings for your stay on the beach.
The kitchen has all your basic cooking and dining needs. There is just enough room for preparing great meals or chatting after a long day at the beach. The dining room has 4 chairs for dining and is open to the living room.
The home is decorated with an artistic hand. There is driftwood in the living room d?cor and open cabinetry in the kitchen. This villa is uniquely touched with many things that make it special to families year round. The owner has carved some of the driftwood items himself, from pieces of wood he finds on our beaches!
Fripp Island Resort amenities are not available for this particular villa, BUT you have the pool, the beach right outside the door and local area restaurants located a few miles back towards town. You can grab a sandwich without a Guest Card at the Marina store for a quick lunch or picnic. We have a gas grill on the patio for preparing fresh fish caught in our surf or a great steak purchased from our Meat Market on Lady's Island. The fishing and crabbing on Fripp do not require amenity cards. So don?t miss out on this great villa. There is a general store on Fripp island you can pick up things if you forget them at the grocery store. Grocery stores are located just 20 minutes from the island.
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 island is about 5 miles long with 3 1/2 miles of white sandy beach. Fripp Island is also a private gated community where we have 24 hour security at the gate.
Hunting Island State Park is right outside the gates of Fripp Island and is open to the public. At the Fripp end of Hunting island, you can take the children into the nature center to learn about our natural inhabitants of the area and/or fish/crab on the pier that extends 1120' into the Fripp Inlet. Going north on Highway 21, there is a Marsh Walk on the left that is interesting to stop and take a leisurely walk. At the main park entrance, you can access the historic lighthouse (children must be 44" tall to climb the lighthouse) that can still be toured by the public and a souvenir shop nearby to peruse after you walk up the 175 steps (and back down) and take in the panoramic views from the top!
Downtown Beaufort is just 20 minutes away and offers plenty of shopping, waterfront dining, and horse and carriage rides. Charleston is about 2 hours away and Savannah just 45 minutes. When you vacation in our area, you will be conveniently located to many must see destinations.TripAdvisor property ID 3592002...Read more
