The Sawgrass Bluff area is located on the marsh side of Fripp Island. It is a subtropical wooded area about a ten minute walk or a five minute ride to the beach in our complimentary golf cart.
When you look out our windows from the living area, you see palms and a lagoon, not another house next door. Out of the front windows is a view of the marsh. Residents and guests of this area have free access to a shared private swimming pool with restrooms and change areas all accessible via an electronic pool card. The pool is less than 100 yards from the house.
Adjoining the pool area is a small playground complete with a tree house, slide and swings. While the pool is just behind the house, it is far enough away not to bother your quietness.
Our renters also have access to a private crabbing dock extending into the marsh. This is a great place to catch crabs, fish, shrimp, or just sit and watch the wonders of marsh life or catch a fantastic sunset.
You can sit on our screened porch early in the morning and enjoy your breakfast among the beauty of nature without the press of humanity around you - or, perhaps catch a quiet nap on one of our loungers. We also have a sundeck for sunbathing in the privacy of our home instead of traveling to the beach.
Our complimentary golf cart (Fripp Island Resort rents them for $275 per week) is provided for use of LICENSED DRIVERS ONLY. Please make sure that you adhere to this licensed drivers only policy as the fine for violation is $200. This cart allows you to slowdown, leave the car behind, and tour the island from end to end counting deer roaming on the island or hunting for an alligator in the lagoons along the roadways.
Beach access is assured as each road leading from the main road to the beach has public access. In order that you enjoy your stay, we provide beach towels, beach umbrellas,surf floats sand chairs, and a few sand toys, so you don't have to pack them. We also have a charcol grill should you desire to use it.
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.
You will find our kitchen well supplied with appliances and the necessary items to enable your full dining and cooking pleasures.
We have installed high speed internet (Comcast 20mbps) in our unit so you can keep up to date with all your contacts with wireless-N connectivity throughout the house. All TVs are Smart HDTVs with wireless access to the internet and free Netflix on each.
The bathrooms are freshly remodelled and we also stock them with a dozen each of bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. Speaking of towels, we also provide a dozen beach towels.
We have two decks, one for sunbathing with supplied reclining chairs and one which is screened-in and has a table with chairs for relaxing in comfort.
You can park under our home and still have off street parking for three cars.
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.
No Smoking and No pets Please.
