Why Dennis Kautz chose Fripp Island
It's a quiet seaside gated community free of theme parks and outlet malls.
What makes this Villa unique
The Captain John Fripp Villas are the ONLY villas on Fripp Island connected directly to their own full-time beach (no loss of beach at high tide). The island abounds with wildlife; deer, alligators, and a wide variety of birds including heron and osprey.

Place was close to the ocean and very easy to find
Dennis was very helpful and the house was great , we had a wonderful stay
Wonderful Stay Jan 01 - Jan 04 2020
Our grandson graduated from Parris Island & we were so very lucky to have found Dennis' Villa. Dennis was very accommodating & answered all our questions. We had family come three different states & it was perfect for the mini reunion of ten. The villa had everything you needed. Listening to the waves and seeing the amount of deer from the balcony was amazing. The only downfall because of the season there were no restaurants close by that were open. I would highly recommend that you stay here to see for yourself.
Lovely vacation destination!
The island itself is amazing and peaceful, especially during the off season (less crowded). The condo itself is older But with a little updating and/or deep cleaning, it would be a perfect place (but please understand that the price is less than other renovated condos...if the owner updates, the price would go up 😊�) Plenty of room for two families with a lovely porch and view. The beds were comfortable and room sizes were nice. Three bathrooms is a plus! Owner was extremely nice and accommodating and that in of itself is a big plus in my opinion. We will definitely be back in the future as we loved every second of our vacation!! Thank you, Dennis!
Great location, needs update
The location of this property is what makes it ok. However, the inside of the condo is desperately overdue for work. Worn furniture, cracked microwave, stained carpet, dirt hanging from bathroom vents, paint peeling from ceiling water damage, green/yellow original bathrooms with mold in showers. These are facts about the property I wish prior reviews had listed so I could have made an informed decision. The resort and area is beautiful but I would probably choose a better condo next time.
Dennis is a wonderful host and we enjoyed our time at his Fripp Island home. The home is located close to the beach club and a short walk to the beach. We hope to stay here again next year.
We had such a great week! You can't beat the location of the property on the island!
