Welcome to The Steel Magnolia (f/k/a The Southern Belle II), a premier elegant vacation beach rental home at Fripp Island!  I purchased the home in September of 2018 and spent the last few months making upgrades and personal touches to this beautiful home. This home has a long & successful rental history with many happy renters under the previous owner. The Steel Magnolia is our family's "Happy Place!"  We look forward to creating countless memories here for generations to come.  Therefore, we take great pride in our home and are so excited to share it with your family.  Our cozy home will be perfect for your families’ Fripp vacation.  We are confident that you will make memories that last a lifetime. 

The home was designed and furnished by the leading home designers in Beaufort. As you approach our 5 Bedroom 4.5 Bath home that sleeps 12, you will be charmed by this stunning Southern Home with its gracious and inviting front porch with Charleston-style columns and rockers that leads you into the front entry of this grand home.  Once you step into our home, the views and nature surround you.  Your breath will be taken away!

Our home has been designed to make your stay both pleasurable and comfortable.  It is our pleasure to provide you a great opportunity to relax with your loved ones and our wish for you to treasure your experience here.  The first level of Steel Magnolia provides 2 master bedrooms.  The first master bedroom offers a King-size Bedroom overlooking the golf course and ponds with an ocean view setting.  Waiting for you is your private luxury bathroom that includes our marble two-person walk in shower with its jetted spas.  The granite vanity includes double bowl tops and old-world faucets.  On the other side of our home is the second master Queen-size bedroom with a private bath.  The master bedrooms will have luxury bath robes waiting for you and your loved ones.

The home is adorned with rich wood floors and crown molding throughout the Foyer, the Great Room, and the Dining area. Our Dining area offers beautiful views. You will have many great gatherings here.  The Great room showcases a large fireplace mantel as the focal point with a large LCD TV and surround sound for movie enjoyment and great family viewing.  We have also provided movies for more family fun time options.

Our luxury Gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops and high end stainless steel appliances are well equipped for all the ladies and gentlemen in the home to enjoy.  The kitchen overlooks the Great room for great family gatherings.  For continuous relaxation, the screened porch caters to the music lover with its Bose speakers. Enjoy all the scenery with piped in music from our XM satellite radio.  As if that weren’t enough, there’s a large outside deck overlooking the golf course with the ocean views in the background to sit and enjoy or do some great grilling on the new Weber grill.

At the top of the stairs, there’s a computer for your use. Plus you may bring your laptop as our home provides wireless internet. Direct TV will be in all the bedrooms for your enjoyment.  All bedding pillows, linens, and towels will be the best for your family.  On the second level of Steel Magnolia you will find 3 more bedrooms. One bedroom has a Queen bed with superior views and a large private bath.  Another Queen Size bedroom leads out to a private deck overlooking the golf courses, ponds, and ocean.  The deck is a great place for private tanning or just reading a great book. The 3rd bedroom has 2 bunk beds that will sleep 4 and a Jack and Jill Private Bath.
We want to make sure you are in luxury comfort.  Our home provides your family with convenience and leisure.  We’ve outfitted the home with a golf cart and a family ping pong table that will be waiting for the family tournaments.  Also enjoy our double-sized outside shower.
