The Benefits of Owning a Fripp Island Rental
Fripp Island is a great place to own a rental property. It’s a secluded hideaway with three and a half miles of beach. Located off the coast of sunny and warm South Carolina, Fripp Island is known as a place for relaxing. People use golf carts and bicycles to get around the island.
Do you like the idea of owning a place where the temperature is typically between 60 and 85 degrees? Fripp Island’s cold season gets down to 60 degrees, though most of the year the weather is sunny, warm, and beautiful, to the point where people feel like they’re in paradise. Indeed, many snowbirds dream of the days they can get away to Fripp Island when the temperature dips below freezing up North.
As a semitropical paradise, Fripp Island has many outdoor amenities besides the beach. There are two golf courses, several swimming pools, and tennis courts for those who live an active lifestyle. Meanwhile, there are places to go fishing and kayaking nearby, and if the timing is right you just might see dolphins in the waters around the island.
Rental properties on Fripp Island appeal to people of all ages, including families with young children. There’s “Camp Fripp” and a seaside waterpark at Fripp Island Golf & Beach Resort for youngsters.
One of the ideal things about Fripp Island is its location, just a short drive away from the historic town of Beaufort, which features oak trees draped in Spanish moss. Visit Beaufort’s lovely historic district to be surrounded by quaint and charming old-world architecture. One “must see” is The Beaufort Arsenal Museum at 713 Craven Street. Completed in 1798, the museum will take you back in time as you view Indian artifacts, art, textiles, and even weapons from the Civil War era.
Where do people who rent a place on Fripp Island go to shop for fun? There’s the Fordham Market at the corner of Bay and Carteret Streets where many ladies enjoy browsing the jewelry, collectibles, antiques, artwork, and gifts for all occasions. For beach toys, clothing and souvenirs, a trip to the brightly-colored Barefoot Bubbas on Harbor Island is a fun time. Chocoholics simply must visit The Chocolate Tree. In business making chocolate on the premises since 1980, The Chocolate Tree is a real treat to visit for people of any age.
While you could eat at your Fripp Island rental home provided you go grocery shopping, oftentimes it’s nice to take a quick trip to Beaufort for interesting dining options. Many restaurants are known for offering live entertainment, including the Johnson Creek Tavern and Steamers Oyster & Steakhouse. Since you’re near the sea, visit the Shrimp Shack for seafood. It’s on Highway 21 between Beaufort and Fripp Island. Other seafood restaurants include Boondocks, the 11th Street Dockside Restaurant, and Barbara Jean’s. If you go to Barbara Jean’s you should try their signature item: Eastern Shore-style Crab Cakes. They’re filled with lump crab meat and no fillers.
