Sea La Vie is a four bedroom 4.5 bath home of about 3,500 sq.ft. located on Fripp Island in the Low Country of South Carolina.
The gated community of Fripp Island represents the best of what the Low Country offers: Pristine beaches, an abundance of wildlife and a secure place for you and your family to relax and enjoy your time away from the rest of your life.
Sea La Vie, our home, represents an amazing opportunity to experience all of this. "C'est la vie" roughly translates as "oh, well". And that's what you will say to yourself as you look around, smile, and settle into your vacation.
Spyglass, where our home is located, is a peninsula on the southern end of the island near Wardle's Landing. Sea La Vie presents ocean views from the front and a panorama of extensive marsh and estuary views from the back. The sunsets are stunning. Wildlife is seen in abundance everywhere.
Whether you are looking for a quiet place to read and refresh your spirit or a life style that is set up for family togetherness, Fripp Island offers a respite from the everyday routines of life. And Sea La Vie is the place to stay.
The house, a sprawling Cape Cod, has a large wall of windows at the rear of the house with multiple screened sunrooms each side of a large great room. Everywhere gives you unbroken panoramas over the pristine unspoiled marsh around Skull Inlet.
Whether you choose to sit with your coffee on the front porch early in the morning as the sun comes up, watching the waves in Skull Inlet and across to Pritchard's Island or... you choose the rear deck or one of the screened sunrooms, you will find yourself surrounded by nature, an ideal environment to relax and leave the worries of the world behind.
Enjoy breakfast while counting the wildlife that flies by. How many eagles and ospreys will you see this morning? After that, there's the golf courses, the tennis courts and, of course, the beaches. Nothing beats the beaches of Fripp Island.
Sea La Vie is about a ten minute walk or a five minute golf cart ride to the beach.
Beach access is assured as there are over 30 accesses to the beach. To help you enjoy your stay, we provide beach towels, beach umbrellas, surf floats, sand chairs, and a few sand toys so that you don't have to pack them.
What else? It's a 5 minute walk to the Nature Center where the naturalists will give you a tour of the wealth of island wildlife that they have at the center. The island's Activity Center is right there too. Great for the kids.
The Cabana Club & its pools, where you can enjoy the spectacular views across to Pritchard's Island and the ocean, take in a cocktail, or enjoy food from the restaurant, are located 100 yards further. There are nine pools scattered around the island that you have access to.
Spyglass is adjacent to Wardle's Landing which is a fishing and crabbing pier that juts out into Skull Inlet. Whether you are fishing, crabbing, watching the dolphins go by, or taking in the beautiful sunsets, you'll enjoy the wonders of the South Carolina Low Country from this incredible location.
Once you've done with the day's activities and fun, you relax on the porches, decks, or in the sunrooms.
You will find our kitchen well supplied with appliances and all of the necessary items to enable your full dining and cooking pleasures. There's a Weber gas grill on the deck for grilling your catch or your favorite steaks, burgers or sausages.
The house has high speed wireless internet (Hargray 200mbps) throughout. All TVs are Smart HDTVs with wireless access to the internet and free Netflix.
The four and a half bathrooms are stocked with an abundance of bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. We also provide a dozen beach towels.
The home has ample parking, both under the home and around it. Two cars under and four in the driveways.
Our island is near historic Beaufort South Carolina with its historical tours and many fine eating establishments.
Once you have enjoyed the unspoiled life style of Fripp Island, walking the uncrowded beach where loggerhead turtles come to nest, you will wonder why you ever went anywhere else to get away from it all. Remember, vacations at the beach form memories that last forever.
One more thing: No Smoking and No pets allowed.
Rental note: The guest who books the reservation must be 25 years or older and must be present for the length of the stay in the property.

Wonderful stay at 6 Spyglass Lane. Probably my favorite house out of all the houses we have stayed in. Only thing missing was a second refrigerator in the garage.
I can’t say enough of how great this home is. Very very comfortable, great view of the marsh, A/C worked perfect, it had a perfect golf cart with the home, beach chairs and 5 bikes that looked brand new. If in doubt of being to far from the beach just rent an extra golf cart or 2. Thanks to the owners and management for the best rental home that we have stayed at in the 10 years of coming to Fripp
Beautiful house, fully equipped and well maintained. Very quiet location with spectacular views of the marshes and fabulous sunsets. Everything was as expected if not better. We’ll be back!
