Welcome to “Sunspot”, a newly renovated beachfront condominium on beautiful Fripp Island. Sunspot is in the Captain John Fripp Villas, centrally located on the Island, with the very best stretch of beach – whether at high tide or low! Unlike public beaches, such as Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach, Fripp Island is secluded and serene. Even during the high season, the beach is not too crowded to spread out a family’s worth of towels, chairs, coolers and umbrellas, and still have room to build a sandcastle! The condo has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms upstairs. Wake to expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean. The master bedroom (which has the ocean view) has a stunning queen bed and an en suite bath. The guest room has a queen bed and a twin bed with a trundle. The second full bath is just off the hallway. Each bedroom has a new flat screen television, and the guest room television has a DVD player built in! There is ample closet space and plenty of storage for clothes in chests of drawers in each room.
The first floor includes a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer. We do provide a small supply of washing detergent upon your arrival. The kitchen is fully equipped, with plates, glasses, flatware, cookware and utensils, with a dishwasher for your convenience. It includes a four burner electric stove with oven and microwave, automatic drip coffee maker, a Keurig single cup brewing system, toaster, blender and full sized refrigerator with an automatic icemaker. There is a half bath on the first floor (not available in many of the two bedroom condos); a dining area which can seat up to eight; and a comfortable den with a stylish sleeper sofa and a brand new 60” flat screen television for your viewing pleasure. A DVD player and a large array of movies are available for your use. Right outside the sliding glass door is a patio with a charcoal grill and comfy chairs for relaxing. Parents can sip coffee in the morning, or cocktails in the evening, and enjoy the ocean vista while small children cavort on the grassy yard directly behind the villa. The newly constructed boardwalk to the white sand beach is just steps away. The John Fripp Villas complex has a private pool for residents and guests, if one wants to take a fresh water dip or just relax in the sun without the sand!
We do not include a golf cart with our villa. I seriously considered making that an option, but after weighing the pros and cons, decided it was best to let guests rent from one of the local companies. I could provide it myself, and then increase fees for the guest to cover the costs of purchase, use, maintenance and insurance. However, if there were a problem with the cart, it might take several days (or even weeks) for me to be able to get the cart repaired. It is not easy for an individual to get a cart attended to during the busy season, as all the commercial companies are concerned with their own repairs/replacements, etc. If a guest rents a cart themselves, they are assured that the golf cart company will get a replacement cart to them very quickly if there are any problems. There are several places on and near the island which rent them.
Along with linens, towels and all kitchen accessories, we provide a starter supply of bar soaps, dishwashing detergents (both for hand and machine washing), and clothes washing detergent. Our kitchen is fully supplied, with everything a family needs to prepare complete meals. There is a full sized refrigerator and a four burner electric stove/oven/microwave unit. Cookware, utensils, glassware, plates, serving pieces and silverware are all provided. We have a Mr. Coffee automatic drip coffeemaker, and Keurig compatible brewing system. There is also a Weber charcoal grill at the Villa. We have a toaster and a crockpot, but no waffle iron. One would need to buy some charcoal for the grill. We use match light, and it works well. We have two large canvas folding beach chairs and four smaller beach chairs, as well as a beach umbrella, available for your use. There are beach chairs and umbrellas for rent on the beach if you need evenmore. Please do not take bath towels out of the villa. We have a small supply of beach towels, which you are welcome to use if you do not have enough. We ask that you please not take them with you when you leave!
