Fripp Island does not have high rise condos with bars and big night life, so if that is what you are looking for, this is the wrong place. It does has long stretches of quiet beaches, herds of deer, dolphin pods off shore, salt marshes with herons and red winged black birds, kayaking and crabbing. You can play tennis, golf,...

What an adorable little place we stayed in. I always travel with my Labradoodle, Maci, and couldn't have stayed at a nicer place. We were only there for two nights on our way to Florida. Stayed in Sunsuite 527. Was picture perfect and clean as can be. While just an efficiency, it was the perfect size with a full size...

Plenty to do on island, or on one of the nearby islands. With 2 excellent golf courses, soft sand beaches, tennis, bicycling, kayaking, fishing, boating, and plenty of wildlife to see, Fripp has something for everyone.

2 great golf courses, no fighting over space to lay your beach towel. low volume of people and just a great place for families. The food was amazing and Golf courses in great shape. Tennis courts also kept up with well along with clay courts. I will defiantly be bringing my family back here every year.

We have been coming here for the last six years and it is absolute heaven. The amenities and staff are top notch and the few times we have had minor issues they go above and beyond to make it right. We have stayed in several different homes and all have been great. The family atmosphere is perfect for those with...

We love this island! A perfect get away from life! We rent a condo or home, bring our food, bikes, beach chairs, and don't leave for a week. The bike trails are clearly marked, and if you don't bike, the golf cart rentals are plentiful, many rental come with one included. Beautiful beach, golf, and tennis.

We had two rentals for our multiple families visiting Fripp Island for a week. One rental was on the marsh and the other was near the beach. It was an interesting week.

We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review! We did want to briefly shed a little light on our snake sighting.

Loved spending time this summer on this private island. Lots of golf carts, plenty of beaches (most of which are deserted early in the morning). Loved seeing the sea turtle nests (I did not touch!) and tons of shells to collect. This is a great place to relax and spend quality time with the family.
