About the property

This home is on the canal with a private dock and only steps from the beach!!

We have a spacious, newly renovated home with 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms total in Treetops. The ground level of the home is accessed through outside stairs to include a 2nd kitchen, dining area, living room and 2 bedrooms, and a bathroom. We have 2 screened porches on the back side of the house overlooking the canal with AMPLE indoor and outdoor dining areas for families who are ready to CHILL! We seat 10 at a table on the main level inside with another 3 at the bar and a table that seats 6 on the upper screened porch next to the swing. Downstairs the dining room seats 8 with 4 more on the lower screened porch. All of the appliances are brand new in the home! We have 2 master bedrooms upstairs with King beds, a twin bedroom, and a queen. Downstairs there is a set of bunk beds in 1 bedroom and a queen in the other. The two front bedrooms upstairs open to the front porch for a quiet place to sit and the two back bedrooms overlook the private dock and canal. You can dock a boat at our dock 24/7 and kayaks are easily launched from there as well. A 4 seater golf cart comes with the rental and we offer a 2nd one at a discounted rate compared to the island rentals if you are interested. We have a full size gas grill and TVs in the living areas as well as each bedroom on the main level. We have 2 full sized refrigerators so that you have plenty of room for food/drinks. For your convenience, we have a crockpot for the house and a Keurig for each kitchen. We also have a regular carafe coffee maker in the upstairs kitchen. We have beautiful beach decor throughout the home. This is a quiet setting as it sits off the road somewhat and yet you are steps away from all of the activities at the Beach Club, the tennis courts, and most importantly, the BEACH! Come enjoy our first season renting since this home since the renovation!!

About Michelle Montgomery

We are SC natives with 4 children of our own and we live in the upstate of SC.

Michelle Montgomery purchased this house in 2013

Why Michelle Montgomery chose Fripp Island

We visited Fripp for the first time several summers ago and we fell in love with it so much that we decided to buy a place on the island that we could visit when we weren't renting it and we have loved it!!

What makes this house unique

I absolutely love having the private dock in the backyard. It's so peaceful and the sunsets are just stunning. There are a few places to get away in the home as well to read and have some solitude. Two of the bedrooms have access to the spacious front porch with chairs for relaxing with a morning cup of coffee. The two screened porches on the back of the house are so cozy and they offer comfortable seating and a beautiful view! This house is perfect for a family and maybe even two families as there are 2 kitchens! The ground level of the house offers privacy as it is only accessed through outside stairs. Almost everything in the home is brand new! We are within walking distance to all of the action on the island. The main olympic-sized pool is almost right across the street, which is wonderful for traveling with small children. Just so convenient. Also the house is set back a very good distance from the main road, and so we don't worry about the children getting too close to the road.

We would be delighted for you to come visit Treetops!! It's a unique property with the ground level having it's own "apartment" connected by the outdoor stairs. This is so cozy and provides some privacy if that is desired. Almost everything in the house is brand new!

Wonderful house for a large group of people to enjoy both the beach and canal!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for a large group. Tons of outdoor space. Loved the new decor and having a second kitchen/living area is such a bonus! We had everything we needed and will definitely return to Treetops very soon!

Beautiful house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Wow this house is so great! Right across from beach access, close to everything, and the best dock out back on the canal. The downstairs upgrade is amazing!! The whole set up was perfect for our three family group. I have 2 noisy kids so we all stayed downstairs and they could get up early, watch tv, eat breakfast and not disturb anyone upstairs. The two other families had their own private section of the house upstairs. The main upstairs living area is great for everyone hanging out. One of our favorite parts was sitting on the dock at night. Michelle was also amazing to work with and always answered questions (although we had very few) immediately. We will be back! :)

Family vacation fun in the sun!!!

  • 4 of 5

Extremely convenient and close proximity to beach, pool and ice cream shop. The weather was perfect; my grandchildren loved the beach and the pool. My grandson is five and learning how to fish; he loved the dock. We had plenty of room for six adults and two children. We would not hesitate staying at Treetop again in the future! I was impressed with the quick response afforded to me by Ms. Montgomery; every time I had a request/question she responded quickly and was always extremely pleasant. We enjoyed our vacation at Treetop and thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Three of our favorite restaurants:


Foolish Frog

Bonita Boat House (on the Island; at the marina)


Johnny Keadle

Pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

I took my 3 adult children for a long weekend. It was fabulous! We had such a good time, and the house was perfect for us. The pictures show it to be a little dark, but in fact the kitchen, living, dining area is so open, I couldn't have been more wrong. The dock in the back is so beautiful and we spent lots of time enjoying that area, sitting on the dock, reading, watching the fish jump, watching the cranes come look for their food, and just listening to the sounds. We filled the crab trap with leftover rotisserie chicken bones and skin and the next morning we had 4 big crabs! It was fun checking on the trap, driving around on the golf cart, leisurely swinging on the back porch, walking across the street to the beach, riding the bike around the area, when my children slept in. We had plenty of room. We all had our own retreat, and it worked out great. Sept is a wonderful time to go, because it was so quiet and serene, without the vacation crowd. Loved it, and LOVED the house!

I will say, to make sure you get everything you think you'll need at the grocery store, because if not, the store is 30 min away. We cooked most of the time, and went to Beaufort one night for dinner.( and found a funky Kareoke bar, we took over.) There is an island store for soap and paper products, but expensive. (Do not expect to have everything. It would have been nice to have extra toilet paper, a roll of paper towels, and trash bags . And the dishwashing liquid was not there. However, you will pass several Dollar Stores on the way down.)

Paradise found on the Fripp Canal at just steps to the popular Beach Access #17 near center island. This one has it all!! Boaters and fishermen- enjoy your private dock in your own backyard...where you can catch dinner of flounder, sea trout, or red drum or get some tasty crabs with our brand new crab trap we have there for you. You are only steps away from the beach access leading to miles of sun-drenched, uncrowded beach.

Where we are located, the beach always has a wide area to walk and explore. Also, this home is only 4 homes from the Beach Club and center island activities.

The home has 2 screened porches overlooking the canal with a swing and a picnic table on the top porch and a fantastic dock on a tidal canal, and ample parking.

A full-size golf cart and various sized bikes are included with the rental. An optional 2nd golf cart is available to rent as well, as sometimes it is difficult to find one at the rental place on the island.

Enjoy 3.5 miles of pristine beach, wildlife sanctuaries, bike paths, nature walks, and two nature centers. Visit Davis Love Park with swings and the Captain John Fripp boat at the playground, plus basketball and volleyball courts with a picnic cabana. On Fripp, you are sure to see deer, raccoons, alligators, osprey, herons, dolphins, etc. Take a walk on the beach and find shells and sand dollars.

Amenity cards are available for any persons over 12 years of age at the cost of $50 each per week from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and $35 each per week all other times. These cards allow our guests to have full use of the island pools, golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants, scooter and boat rentals, and the fitness center.

The private dock is a great place to fish, crab, and unwind with a glass of wine but we are strict on one rule: no children under 12 allowed on the dock without grown-up supervision.

Activities onsite or nearby include swimming, boating, sailing, surfing, wind-surfing, shelling, hiking, beach volleyball, biking, golf and tennis (both with instruction classes), basketball, fishing, wildlife viewing, and nature centers, restaurants, museums, sight-seeing on the good ship 'Fripper'. For youths of 3-8 years old, there is a nature-based camp (Camp Fripp) and teen events for ages 12-17. There are golf lessons called Wee Links for the junior golfer. Fripp is best known for year round golf. The Ocean Point Golf Course was recently rated a 4.5 by Golf Magazine. The Fripp Island Resort rentals include additional golf carts, bikes, mopeds, personal watercraft, sea kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, and fishing charters.

Just bring your toys, camera, clothes, and food. We supply bedding and linens, towels, a fully-equipped kitchen and a gas grill. Even a toddler bed and 2 pack and plays if you need them.
