Fripp Island Resort no longer requires you to check-in at Guest Services to obtain your check-in packet and unit keys. When you arrive at Fripp, just show your driver's license at the security gate and you will be given your car pass for the length of your stay. Not having to check-in means more beach time (or golf time, or pool time or…well, you get the idea) and we think that is a beautiful thing!
We are now using a Point Central touchscreen system for both deadbolts and lever locks, which will allow you to head straight to your vacation rental. Prior to your arrival, you will receive a PIN code via email that you will use to access your unit. It’s a good idea to print this email and bring it with you. Your check-in packet and Club guest cards will be waiting for you inside your vacation rental.
Our rentals come with a starter set of bathroom tissue, paper towels, dishwashing detergent, trash bags, hand soap, and shampoo.
(Due to the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and difficulties with supply chains, we are unfortunately unable to provide some
of our usual in-home amenities. We apologize for the inconvenience.)
Many of our rental homes include a golf cart rental! This means less stress and fewer obstacles between you and your Fripp vacation! If your rental home included a golf cart or you rented one (or more), just take your guest card down to Island Rentals & Excursions at the Marina (875 Bonito) to pick it up after you check-in. You can call Island Rentals & Excursions at 843-838-1518 or check their hours of operation.
If you arrive early, you can contact Guest Services and they can have your check-in packet with guest cards ready for you at the Guest Services office. Once you have your cards, you can begin to enjoy island amenities, until you are able to check-in.
