Your ultimate vacation beach house starts with 2 ten foot wide porches, each equipped with rockers and hammocks. The front porch also has a swing and spectacular unobstructed views of the marsh and unrivaled marsh sunsets. We are fortunate to have the only Fripp home with full size porches viewing both the ocean and marsh sunsets.
The beachside porch has rockers, hammock, and a table for your morning coffee with sunrises for early risers, dining, etc. In season you will want to reach out and touch the shrimp boats and then go to the nearby docks for fresh seafood. The porch leads to an open deck seating area with shower, which in turn leads to the beach. At low tide, your 400ft wide beach extends north for 3 miles and south for 12 houses to a half mile sandbar and an inlet. The inlet fronts onto the adjacent undeveloped Prichards Island with two miles of pristene beaches for a more varied island beach experince. This island is accessible via kayak or boat and is devoted to sea turtle research. At mid tide, the beach is 200 ft wide and has a tidal pool for the little ones. At high tide, there is essentially no beach giving you time to rest in one of the 3 hammocks, explore the island, visit one of the islands six pools and other club amenities available to our guests with purchase of amenity cards. Amenities include two golf courses, ten tennis courts, six pools, children's camp, restaurants, cruises, gym, computer business center, equipment rental, shops, and more. Located to the north beyound the islands security gate and bridge is Hunting Island which includes a spectacular light house. Did we mention crabbing, surf fishing, guided creek and deep sea fishing?
