About the property

AERIAL VIDEO: 5 BR - Amenity Cards available - 75yds from new beach access


Enjoy a great house just steps from a brand-new boardwalk that leads straight to the beach! PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR RATES INCLUDE A REFUNDABLE $500 DEPOSIT! “Shellebration!” has an open, spacious floor plan. The entrance opens into the living area with ceilings adorned with wood beams and floor to ceiling windows, allowing the Lowcountry sun to shine in. The living area comes equipped with a 65-inch plasma TV w/Blu-Ray, a sofa, love seat, and a chair & ottoman. During the winter, relax by the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with your feet up and a good book.


“Shellebration!” has a beautiful dining room equipped to seat 6 comfortably. You will find everything that you need in the well-lit, open and well-equipped kitchen that offers additional sitting for 6.


The master bedroom has a new, beautiful king size bed with two dressers, two night stands and a walk-in closet. Step out of the master into the sun room for additional seating. Wicker furnishings offer a comfortable area for sipping coffee, reading the paper or enjoying a nightcap. The sun room is equipped with a separate entrance to the front porch for quiet entry into the master bedroom. The master bath offers a dual vanity with bath and shower.


Bedroom Two upstairs includes a new, queen-sized bed with a dresser, a desk and two night stands. Bedroom Three upstairs is spacious and has two twin beds with a dresser, a night stand and a walk-in closet. The hallway bath is a single sink vanity with bathtub and shower.


Venture down the wrought iron spiral staircase or the traditional staircase to find the downstairs living area. Furnishings include a 32-inch flat screen TV w/DVD, a love seat, a sofa and an over-sized chair. There is also a great table with four chairs for fun card games or a puzzle! You will also find another beautiful, stone fireplace. In an adjoining rooms you can also enjoy some ping pong! Two additional bedrooms can be found in the lower living area. Bedroom One downstairs is equipped with a new, queen-size bed, a set of twin bunk beds, a dresser and two nightstands. Bedroom Two downstairs offers a new, queen bed with a dresser and two nightstands.

The house also has a spacious laundry room (downstairs) which is equipped with a washer, dryer and second refrigerator. The door of the laundry room leads outside where you will find a fantastic outdoor shower!

The upstairs deck (which is located on the main floor of the house) has four Adirondack chairs for lounging and a gas grill. The deck is VERY private as it is surrounded by beautiful trees, offering a secluded, peaceful retreat.


“Shellebration!” is only 75 yards from the beach entrance. On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. A short, leisurely walk of about 300 beautiful, scenic yards will lead you straight to the ocean. The sand is flat and clean - perfect for those long strolls along the water or even a bike ride!


As anyone who has ever stayed at a 'public access' beach can attest, Fripp Island's greatest – and most unique – feature is that it is private. The whole island. You can’t get over the bridge without being an owner or renter. That means no overcrowded beaches and the roads are not choked with the cars of thousands of day-trippers. It’s hard to overstate just how much this adds to the character of Fripp Island – and to your vacation. And we are just a short but BEAUTIFUL ride from Parris Island.


Another thing to keep in mind is that Fripp Island does not have a commercial corridor – which is nice but it also means there is no large, grocery store. There’s a tiny shoppette where you can buy milk, etc., but the nearest real grocery store is in back on St. Helena, about a 20 minute drive. So plan your food, grill, and beverage situation. (Which is why you will LOVE having that 2nd fridge downstairs!)

AMENITY CARDS - Amenity cards are only needed to access the club benefits on the island (such as the pool, golf course and restaurants). You do NOT need an amenity card to access the beach. Should you wish to purchase cards, during the summer season (Memorial Day - Labor Day), each card is $50 for a 7 day pass and $35 for a 4 day pass. During the off season, the passes are $35 for a 7 day pass and $25 for a 4 day pass. These fees are a pass through charge from the Club to us to you with no upcharges. Only those 14 years and older need an amenity card. If you are unsure if you will need amenity cards, we would be glad to talk you through the process before you commit to purchasing them.


For the comfort of our future guests and the cleanliness of our home, we have a strict "no pets" policy - regardless of how well-trained.

Contact us today and come make “Shellebration!” your place at Fripp Island!

About Shell and Jennifer Suber

Here is a little about us .... Shell is a South Carolinian and a graduate of The Citadel. He has gone to Fripp Island since he was a boy. Jennifer, although native to New Jersey, has called South Carolina her home for 30 years.

Shell and Jennifer Suber purchased this house in 2014

Why Shell and Jennifer Suber chose Fripp Island

This house is PERFECT for families or large groups. With two distinct living areas (one up and one down), the kids can have a blast downstairs with the tv / ping pong table / card table / large sofas while the adults relax upstairs in their own living room. The house is surrounded by beautiful trees that give you privacy and shade, yet you are only steps from the beach!

What makes this house unique

Close to the beach / located on a dead end road / private / quiet / clean. A GREAT place to visit. But don't just take our word for it, look at our past guest reviews!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome “Shellabration” for sure! Our family gathered from 4 different states, to celebrate my Goddaughter’s accomplishment of graduating Battalion 4005 of Marine Corps Boot Camp. We also celebrated 3 birthdays! I would def stay here again n again. Even tho “off season” there is still plenty to do and Beach is still enjoyable. AMAZING Landlord! Jenn was a gift n a pleasure to do “business” with. Felt everything BUT BUSINESSES! She was extremely kind n helpful. Always Available to answer any questions. She also shared in our joy as we shared our photos with her AND she truly appreciated n enjoyed them. Even posting them personally. Wut a tru blessing she is! She honored my Goddaughter with recognition of Luzion being part of the 1% that protects us 99%. Thank you.

Home was very clean. Very large. Accomdated each family member. Literally steps from Beach. Decor was pretty n inviting.

Plenty of pillows n linens! There was also many spices along w an awesomely stocked kitchen. Was PERFECT for an Italian Cooking Family!!!!!

THANK YOU Jenn n Shell!

All our love n prayers,

The Cardino’s, Campitelli’s, Russo’s n Guiliano

A vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything we needed from kitchen items, soaps ect in all bathrooms and a full equipment laundry room. The best part is the location, a beautiful private beach is just a short walk from the house. We were able to watch the dolphins swim and collect some very nice shells. Our children loved all the deer that were walking around, they would walk right up to you and eat out of your hand. Jennifer was very easy to work with and a phone call away if we needed anything. I'd highly recommend this house! My family and I loved it and are looking forward to renting it sometime during the summer.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shellabration. The house was perfect for our family. Layout was great and kitchen well stocked. Although the beach access was closed for repairs, we still had but a short walk to the beach. The experience the kids and grandkids had with the local wildlife was amazing. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

A Wonderful Week at Shellebration and Can't Wait to Return!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Shellebration! Two families stayed here with a total of 12 people including 8 kids ranging from 9 years old to a one year old. The layout of the house was absolutely perfect. One family occupied the two rooms downstairs, and the other family had the three rooms upstairs. We all would hang out together in the common areas and kitchen. Having a living room both upstairs and downstairs was perfect. We could all hang out upstairs while a baby was sleeping downstairs, or head downstairs when a baby was sleeping upstairs. This really is an ideal property for two families to share. Also, the hot/cold shower outside was great! That is perfect when cleaning up from a long day that beach without taking the mess inside. Shell and Jennifer were incredible to work with and provided us with detailed info about the property and island. I highly recommend staying at Shellebration, and we are looking forward to our next stay there!
