You can see how the place may have been great in the 70s, but that was the last time anything was updated. The clubs are run down and the bars are a joke. Come only for the beach and bring everything you need, of you have to buy something on the island you'll pay a lot more. Beach is nice...

We do encourage guests to...

My family and I stayed in a private home on the north end of the island. We used the golf cart multiple times a day and would recommend having one. The many pools and beaches were wonderful ways to spend time. There are nature trails and docks to view wildlife and the scenery. I would also recommend you bring groceries...

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We totally agree with you about the golf carts! They're an excellent way to cruise around the island. Also, we're glad to hear that you took advantage of our nature trails! They're are a hidden gem. Thank you for the great review and the lovely pictures!

Fripp island is beautiful and a must see. However, do not rent 643 new Haven 3 bedroom condo, it was a bit dated, which was OK. The problem we had was the thermostat was set at 72, it would not let you get any lower than that. It felt about 75° downstairs and about 85° upstairs. We called about 5...

We visited for the first time and absolutely loved it. Lots of wildlife and beautiful beaches. We rented a golf cart which allowed us to take our beach items and fishing poles easier. It was also fun and our basset hound loved it! We loved the south end of the island that offers a view of the inlet and Pritchard...

We had never heard of Fripp Island, but a friend offered their condo. We're Orange Beach people. Fripp is 10x better. It's like a well-kept secret. The sand is super clean (saw 2 pieces of trash on beach the entire visit), and the waves are pretty mild. There are something like 32 beach access points, and most are really close...

We stayed for 12 days on Fripp. 6 nights at a place about 300 yards from the ocean and 6 nights at a place 30 yards from the ocean. Both places were clean and really fit our family. We have been to Fripp 4 times and so we knew that we needed to load up on groceries. We did not...

Fripp island is a wonderful place for families. The national Park gets wonderful reviews for it's beaches,, but coming from Florida with white sand in clear water I found it a bit disappointing but it's very lovely and natural. There are very few restaurants but had to nearby Beaufort, A charming town.

Stayed on the island for several days. The beach was fine otherwise it was mediocre and very dated. For what you pay and having to show your identification to get on the island, you would expect much more. Our suite was outdated, the bed was uncomfortable, the water was cold and some of the furniture was stained and dirty. The...

We made a last minute 2 night reservation to visit Fripp Island for the first time. We were pleased to discover that we could get an ocean front condo. The scheduling process was simple and smooth...however because the price quoted was high I initially declined the reservation. When I told the agent I would look elsewhere she offered a 10%...
