Our family has been coming to Fripp for years. My breathing slows and I feel my entire body relax as we enter the South Carolina lowcountry....there is no place more beautiful. Fripp is literally "the end of the road". It is at the end of a string of sea islands off the Carolina coast. The pace of life is much more gentle than Hilton Head and the natural beauty and wildlife will take your breath away. It is our refuge we need a break from the hurried pace of life.
We love to stay at John Fripp Villas as they are centrally located on the island, have the best beach front, and are close to amentities like tennis, the Beach Club, pools, etc....We normally stay in Phase III. On our last trip, we stayed in 139 John Fripp Villas. It is right on the ocean. When we walked in the front door, we were amazed to see the Atlantic ocean through the windows that went all the way across the wall facing the beach. The kitchen, breakfast area, and living area all have magnificent views of the beach. The layout of the villa was spacious and open. The kitchen has granite countertops and the cabinets appeared very new. There was also furniture in the living area that appeared to be brand new. The kitchen layout was great, and I loved cooking fresh seafood that we bought right off the island. The bedroom has a wonderful pillowtop mattress and slept very well. The bathroom was on the small side but the location and views more than made up for that.
There is a covered patio that looks over the ocean allowing you to enjoy the ocean breezes without being exposed to the sun. Our kids loved the grass area off the patio and had plenty of room to run, play bocce ball, and do gymnastics. They also loved laying in the grass at night to watch the stars....there were millions! The villa is right on the beach and it was easy for us to run back and forth for a drink or to get a camera or more sunscreen.
Fantastic trip! We can't wait to come back!
