Like someone else on Trip Advisor noted, Fripp Island has become a victim of it's own success. We have been there probably 8-10 times and have seen the prices go up, and the resort become less and less accommodating for guests. I understand the reasoning behind the amenity cards for the pools and amenities, but they never work. From day...

Absolutely the best beach vacation we've ever had, and we've stayed up and down the coast of South Carolina. The atmosphere is unbelievable, the views are breath taking, and nature comes to your back steps. The beaches are wide open and not crowded, and there is always room at any of the pools. The ice cream shop located in the...

My wife and I have been vacationing on Fripp for over 10 years. The entire island is gated and ensures to the peacefulness and slow pace of this reclusive island life. You'll find many deer that wander about the island and this adds to the island's unique mystique. Much of the island is under developed and wildlife abounds. Most of...

Great location, home is beautiful (446 Tarpon) but the management/cleaning company is substandard at best. I have stayed in cheap hotels that were cleaner than this home's bedrooms were upon our arrival. First, the kitchen floor was sticky when we arrived. I brushed it off, wanting to get unpacked to enjoy the beach. When I walked into the bathroom in...

We've been going to Fripp Island for many years (probably 12 times in about 14 years). The whole ambience is great: all properties close to the ocean; some on the ocean, relaxed way of life, most folks drive golf carts instead of cars, wildlife, water, golf, etc. After this many years, this year may be the last. Unfortunately, I think...

Fripp Island is my happy place. My family and I always enjoy our time there. I hope to retire there someday. Time slows down and any stress I have just melts away as soon as I enter the island. Beautiful beaches, neat wildlife, great entertainment, things for kids of all ages to do, Camp Fripp,.....it is all top notch!

This year we stayed at 108 Davis Love. Its a great house - Platinum level on the Marsh side of the island. There were a few housekeeping issues and maintenance issues but nothing that would spoil the week. I am dissappointed that Fripp has done away with the Frequent Fripper discounts. They have also changed the dates of the prime...

My brother went to parris island to be a marine! OOrahhh! So the whole family wanted to go down to watch him graduate. We booked a place here. I loved it!! We plan on having another trip back here. The beach was private & quiet. There are deer on the property that will walk right up to you. However you...

We go to Fripp a few times a year and recently booked through the resort for the first time. Due to a mechanical failure we were placed in a different unit. We were a pittle disappointed in that we didn't feel it was the same level unit, Fripp made suitable concessions and we were happy with what we got. Additionally...

I go to Fripp Island at least once a year. The island is the perfect place to kick back and relax at the beach. I have also taken my friend there to play golf and the kids also enjoy it. Its the perfect place for sports, tennis and golf or romantic weekend. Lots of beautiful wild life there.
