Fodor's Expert Review Beach Club Villa 172
172 Beach Club, Fripp Island, South Carolina, 29920, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Since its development in the 1960s, Fripp Island has been known as one of the more moderately priced, private resort islands. Prices have risen, but this condo/villa is an example of how to keep costs down. A couple of decades old, this building is well maintained, the roof was recently replaced, and the view is of marshland and a canal with access to a private crabbing dock. Individually owned, like most of the units on Fripp, the unit has been renovated with an updated furniture package, flat-screen TVs, stainless-steel appliances, and a granite countertop. Condos like this one are well suited to small families, golf buddies, and corporate groups. Daily maid service is an option.
