182 Beach Club Villa - Fripper Upper: 1st Floor, Just for TWO, All Marsh Views, FREE Coffee/Tea/Creamer, No Bedroom Stairs, Club Cards Available! | Fripp Island Vacation Rentals | FrippVacation

Stay with us and see why our guests brag that "Fripper Upper" is the best one-bedroom on the island!

"Fripper Upper" is a COMPLETELY and TASTEFULLY RENOVATED (end of 2021) 1 king bed/1 full bath FIRST FLOOR CORNER villa with INCREDIBLE marsh, canal, and sunset views!  The current owners purchased at the end of 2020 and spent all of 2021 making the entire villa new, bright, light, and airy.  EVERY window allows plenty of light while highlighting the beauty and splendor of the marsh, wildlife, and Mother Nature.  NO PARKING LOT OR STAIRCASE VIEWS - ALL MARSH VIEWS!   NO STAIRS TO THE BEDROOM (once inside, it's all one level - you don't have to haul luggage up stairs to a bedroom).  The beach, ocean, adult pool and bar, food court, olympic pool, and the heart of Fripp Island are just across the street, with multiple beach accesses!

What makes "Fripper Upper" different:

  • - Involved and caring owners that update, maintain, deep clean, and stock supplies on a regular basis - Not a "set it and forget it" property!
  • - Stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and new cookware, bakeware, tools, utensils.
  • - Lighted, open-shelved beverage bar with a mini wine cooler, Keurig machine, coffee K-cup pods, and other coffee / beverage accessories and tools.

  • - Remote controlled smart, flat-screen TVs with local stations, cable/music channels, and apps (guests use own logins) in living room and bedroom.
  • - WiFi / internet up to 300 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload.
  • - USB charging stations and LED lighting throughout.
  • - Private screened-in back porch with outdoor party lights and balcony-height resin Adirondack chairs.

  • - EVERY window provides a view of the marsh, canal, and wildlife (no parking lot or staircase views).
  • - TWO DIFFERENT FANTASTIC VIEWS just from the bedroom!


Tennis and pickle ball courts are in front of the building, with an outdoor community shower on the side.  A private community dock and outdoor community charcoal grill are behind the building overlooking the marsh and canal.  Across the street is the Fripp Island Beach Club, adults-only pool and bar, Olympic swimming/lap pool, Island Bites food court, The Resort's Fripp Ship souvenir/clothing store, and gym/fitness center with the beach and ocean just steps away!
