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...More

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...More
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...More
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...More
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...More
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...More

My dad retired from the Marines and I grew up in the area for some years but I always go back every summer to Fripp Island and Beaufort both places are layed back and beautiful. However it is a little drive to Parris Island around 30 min. If you were staying several days then it would be worth it staying at Fripp because the hotels fill up fast. I don't know when his graduation is but you may want to check Bed and Breakfast or hotels in Port Royal if there is any available.
Oceanfront would be on Marlin, Tarpon or some of the beach access roads like Flying Fish. John Fripp villas are oceanfront and very close to the beach club pool. The beach in the Ocean Point area where the New Haven condos... More
Oceanfront would be on Marlin, Tarpon or some of the beach access roads like Flying Fish. John Fripp villas are oceanfront and very close to the beach club pool. The beach in the Ocean Point area where the New Haven condos are is rocky and low tide only. We normally stay in the Ocean Point area where you have ocean views and take the golf cart to the beach.
The resort is houses, condos, several pools, golf courses, restaurants, etc.
Look at the Fripp Island Resort website it will give you a good description and rating of the properties available. Keep in mind everyone over 12 must have an amenity card to use the pools and go to the pools and restaurants. They are $50 each. If you rent through the resort they are included. Also most of the rentals include a golf cart. The houses in the Veranda Beach area normally have a view of the pool complex (the largest and best for kids) and the ocean. From there you can walk to the pools and the activity center.
Most of the beach is very nice to play on especially in the center, the beach club area or the accesses down from it. The golf carts are a must for gettng around on the island so it really doesn't matter where you stay.
