Bask in the sunshine and southern charm of this fantastic Lowcountry home. "Watsonstonia" started as a sand castle and a dream on the beach of Fripp Island when owners Ben and Amy Watson were on vacation with their family. They hoped to one day own a home on the alluring island oasis they call their happy place. Now that dream has come true and they invite you to experience it for yourself. Your family will cherish the memories made together as you hunt for sharks' teeth, sand dollars, and horseshoe crab on the pristine white sand beach or volunteer to help release baby sea turtles into the ocean after they emerge from their nests. Drive around the island in a golf cart and look for alligators sunbathing along the lagoons (we suggest keeping a running total for your stay). The combination of luxurious accommodations and nature that await you when you rent this property is a rare vacation opportunity.


This beautiful and generously appointed home has been updated throughout. It is perfectly situated near the club house and swimming pools but is only steps from the beach. Many locations on the island  lose their beach during high tide, but the public access at the end of the driveway takes you to a permanent beach. Enjoy the salt-water breezes from 2 screened-in porches, a large deck, and large front porch.
