First-Ever Online Beach House Auction at Fripp Island with Fripp Forward

Fripp Forward, LLC proudly presents the first property owner’s beach house auction for vacation rentals on Fripp Island, accessible at

The auction includes twenty-one homes and is offering upwards of 40 vacations to generate funds for legal expenses in the current case against Fripp Island Resort’s ownership over various exclusivity claims.

Acting as spokespeople for Fripp Forward, LLC are Joan Barnes, Philip Berlinsky, Chris Cromer, Mark Rosenberg, and Steve Shanks. They argue that the exclusivity claimed by the resort affects every type of property on the island, a sentiment echoed by the resort’s lawyer who noted, “This is an island-wide issue,” impacting all property owners on Fripp Island.

Funds raised from this auction are earmarked for covering the legal costs involved in the ongoing court case:

STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA – COUNTY OF BEAUFORT NO.: 2023-CP-07-01629 Alberta Rosenberg, Plaintiff v. FISC Land Holdings, LLC, Seascape Hospitality Group, LLC, Defendants

“We’re grateful that so many wonderful vacations have been donated to this first-ever fundraiser. Homes of all sizes on every part of the island are participating in the auction,” commented Joan Barnes. “100% of the sales after cleaning fees and taxes are deducted have been donated to support the legal fees of the case.”

The online auction is active and set to close on Thursday, April 25th, at 7:00 pm.

Fripp Forward represents a group of property owners dedicated to safeguarding their rights. The organization is actively determining the legal property rights for owners on Fripp Island, with legal services from Ford, Wallace, Thompson LLC and Pendarvis Law Offices, PC.
