We had a vacation planned for Hilton Head Island but the house we had rented two and a half months earlier was taken out of the rental program 2 hours before checking. We were able to find a home on Fripp Island and could not be more happy about this vacation. Great for a family or couples get away.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

Second time to Fripp Island, I love how limited the commercialization is. Don't expect any chain restaurants or any souvenir chains. I love the controlled and secure environment here, I couldn't live here but very nice to vacation here.

We came to Fripp Island as Mr. and Mrs. Claus and found a wonderful Resort. It is a mixture of vacationers and residents. We stayed in Captain John Fripp villas and had a beautiful place. Deer roamed the area at dusk making it as much a nature preserve.
We have discussed brining family next time, especially if invited back for next Christmas. The staff was wonderful and activities department keep guest entertained.

Stayed: November 2016, travelled on business

I've been coming to Fripp Island every year since 1975 when my dad found a small ad in a golf magazine (only way to find things then!). Now come with extended family and children. Fripp is quiet and laid back. That's why we like it. No stoplights, spotty internet but lots of lowcountry charm. Walk the beach, play tennis or golf, fly kites, bike, or sit and read a book. Three restaurants on island, but plenty off island. Beaufort is 25 minutes away and full of Southern charm. While I like to brag-I really don't want to because Frippers consider this our little secret!

Been through 6 East Coast Hurricanes. Never seen so many untouched houses and so many downed trees and debris lining every street. Sawgrass boardwalk (Foot/Bike path) gone. Sawgrass Crab Dock gone. Hunting Island fishing pier. Partially gone but closed until 2017. Been going to Fripp since 2012 and love it. It looks like it will be 6 to 8 months before the clean up is almost back to normal.

Room Tip: Not rating a hotel here. Just the current status of the island. It's a mess.
