Sharkbait on Fripp Island

Modern Beach Home with Private Pool and Outdoor Entertainment Area, Steps from Ocean

A modern beach house, “Sharkbait” lies just off the Fripp Island community boardwalk, steps from the beach. Ideal for entertaining, the 5-bedroom home has a swimming pool, cabana with outdoor TV and grill, bar area, and a poolside patio table.

Inside, a two-story great room with a mezzanine level invites guests to sprawl out between a comfy sectional couch and a wicker sofa set, both facing a large-screen TV, which hangs above a decorative fireplace. A wall of windows opens this room to ocean views beyond lush trees.

Just beyond the great room, a formal dining area seats up to 8 guests, with al fresco seating on the veranda at a 4-seat patio table. Four stools at the kitchen breakfast bar add seating for larger groups -- or room for the family “sous chef.” With high-end appliances and a Jen-Air cooktop, the kitchen is fully equipped for home-cooked meals.

The main level also features the primary suite, which opens onto its own outdoor area . Aside from an adjacent bunk room, the remaining bedrooms are upstairs:

A washer and dryer on the main level, as well as an extra powder room, add convenience. Park in the private, oversized garage, which accommodates up to four cars.

Although stays do not include Fripp Island amenities, guests of Sharkbait enjoy access to the island’s white-sand beaches, nature trails and outdoor recreation, from kayaking to shelling. The home also lies in close proximity to charming restaurants just off the island (USA Today recommends Johnson Creek Tavern), and a host of state parks, nature preserves, history and culture on nearby Beaufort and Port Royal Islands.

*Guest cards are now available for purchase. These must be used to access pools, tennis courts, restaurants and the two championship golf courses. Guest cards are $50 weekly from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and $35 during the rest of the year, due to limited seasonal hours at these facilities. Guest cards must be arranged with Natural Retreats prior to arrival. *

As our gift to you for booking with us, we offer free admission to select Sea Islands and Beaufort attractions. Called the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like the Kazoo Factory and a free kayak rental. It’s our way of saying, “Thanks!”

Please note that guests must be at least 21 years of age to rent this property.

House was beautiful and has all the amenities. The only thing that was disappointing were all the extra fees but the house was great!
