About Jeri and Plummer Mifflin
When we are not at Fripp Island, we maintain a year-round home in mid-Michigan one mile from the campus of Michigan State University (Go Spartans!). Plum is a retired building contractor, and Jeri is a retired school principal. We both love splitting our "home" time between Fripp Island and Okemos, Michigan. A passion for both of us is the game of golf which we love playing together and with friends. While at Fripp, we enjoy walking Fripp's beautiful beach, socializing with friends, and exploring Beaufort's many art galleries and boutiques. Plum loves outdoor activities, including golf, surf fishing and crabbing. Jeri is an active volunteer (has worked at Beaufort Art Gallery, St. Helena Elementary School and as a volunteer in the Newhaven complex). She also enjoys participating in competitive state and 'low country' golf tournaments. We love to travel, spend time with friends, and do things with each other in retirement. We have traveled throughout Europe, Mexico, Greece, Alaska, and the Caribbean. We look forward to sharing our villa with guests during spring, summer and fall months!!!
Jeri and Plummer Mifflin purchased this Villa in 1997
Why Jeri and Plummer Mifflin chose Fripp Island
We fell in love with Fripp on our first trip to the 'Low Country' in 1997. After visiting friends at their beachfront home, we knew immediately that Fripp was a special place that where we wanted to spend more time. We enjoyed shelling, kite flying, crabbing, surf fishing, golf, and more on that first trip. After only a week, we purchased a villa here and never looked back! We bought our villa in Newhaven because we love its beautiful ocean views and friendly community spirit. The quiet laid-back "natural beauty" of Fripp captivated us on our first visit. It still enthralls us over twenty two years later! When we get the urge to “get off the island,” we enjoy visiting Bluffton, Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston. We ALWAYS love our nearby town of Beaufort which is one of the quaintest and most friendly small towns in America. We enjoy so many things about Fripp--meeting interesting and accomplished people from all over the U.S. and world, observing brilliant starry nights, taking beach walks together, teeing up on the first hole just across the street from our villa, and driving our golf cart (Ruby) on rides to see the island's abundant wildlife. We fell in love with Fripp on first sight and continue to love it more each year--a beautiful Audubon nature preserve featuring deer, egret, eagles, alligators, osprey, and dolphins. Best of all, we love the many friends we have made over the years and enjoy our reunions as we return each fall to our beautiful and secluded island paradise!

Beaufort, Savannah, Hilton Head, and Charleston provide day trip opportunities to experience culture, history, and the arts.

A Fantastic Time On Fripp!
What a wonderful and relaxing get away!
Not only was the decor of the condo beautiful, but everything we could have possibly needed was provided.
We have stayed in many VRBO properties and I must say that these owners are the most thoughtful we have every encountered.
It took some getting use to the fact that the island is a secure resort. We arrived late and hungry. We really should have stopped at the market as, we soon found out, food delivery was not an option. A quick trip to the store in the morning and we were all set.
The restaurants available on the island, some are seasonal, were a nice option when we really did not want to cook- it is vacation after all!
The pools were very nice and, due to the time of the year, often ours alone! Sunrise and sunsets were beautiful and we really enjoyed exploring the island on Ruby. It is such a thoughtful perk provided by the owner.
It was our first visit to Fripp Island and we hope to return in the future. We would certainly love to stay here again.
We have been to Fripp five times now and this is the best place we have rented.Fantastic location, decorated nicely, clean, and so well stocked.The owners have put a great deal of work into making you feel at home.
Wow! Thank you for your positive comments and for recognizing that we truly care about the experience of our guests! We hope you continue to return to fripp many more times.
Loved the view and beautiful property. This was the most equipped property we have ever rented. Beautifully designed renovation and very relaxing. I would give it 5 stars except we did not realize the property Is not on the beach until we got there. It has beach access only at low tide otherwise it is on the rocks. Also, the bed is one of the hardest I have ever slept on. Incredibly firm. If you like hard bed, you will love it. For me, it is a deal breaker for a second stay. Otherwise, a perfect experience.
Thank you for your review and kind comments about our place, furnishings and upgrades.
We did not realize (being from Michigan) that the tidal swing in the southeast is the greatest on the Atlantic coast. We (and our guests) love that the ocean is right out our door and have always provided a golf cart so guests can visit the many public beach accesses at high tide.
Re the bed...We have had some guests ask for the make and model because they love it and that is why we put it on our web site. So sorry it did not suit you—a great night’s sleep is important.
We had a wonderful stay at this property. It exceeded our expectations. The property was very clean and comfortable, with many amenities. The view of the water was gorgeous. We especially enjoyed going around the island on Ruby (the golf cart).
Fripp Island is such a beautiful place, with its lovely beaches, deer, dolphins and nature.
We are driving home and already talking about our next trip to Fripp Island. Hopefully, we will be able to stay at this property on our next visit.

Love the Villa. Any thing you could need was there. One of the best views in this property.
Beautiful and Comfortable
Lovely condo with everything you can possibly need. The view can’t be beat. The owners couldn’t be nicer. A great experience. We have been coming to Fripp for 20 years and it never gets old!
The beach and ocean are just steps from our villa which features incredible views from every room. Our interior is updated and luxurious with everything you need for a wonderful week. While staying at our place, you can enjoy the many activities offered on Fripp and the nearby area!
Explore the island in "Ruby," our electric golf cart (included with rental) or walk and bike the beach and hiking trails. Bird watching, shelling, and reading in your private deck chairs are just a few of the relaxing activities on Fripp.
Many guests also enjoy exploring nearby the quaint town of Beaufort which has been named "Best Small Town in USA" by Southern Living magazine.
Savannah & Charleston are close by if you want to check out historic sights, sample southern cuisine, and visit small galleries and shops. Many of our guests enjoy visiting plantations, checking out "ghost tours" and "culinary tours", visiting Fort Sumpter, the Citadel, and doing carriage rides to learn about southern life.
Our villas’s incredible ocean views invite you to pick up fresh seafood at the local fish docks (featured in the movie Forest Gump) & 'cook in'. Foodies may want to venture out and try some of the area's delicious restaurants which feature local produce, seafood, and recipes.
Fripp boasts excellent tennis courts, as well as two highly rated golf courses--Ocean Point and Ocean Creek Golf Courses. As a special 'bonus', you may choose to purchase amenity cards that entitle you to 'guest membership' in the private Fripp Club & use of ALL Fripp Club facilities, including tennis, pools, and dining. Whether you choose this option, or merely want to relax and enjoy the beauty of Fripp, we guarantee your vacation will be among your best ever!
