My daughter lives in the Fairplay area. She suggested when we come for her wedding, we stay at the Fairfield plantation. Boy, We are all happy we did! What beautiful accommodations! Great prices! Swimming pool and Beach right next to us. They had all different sizes and kinds of accommodations. The prices were fair. The check in area was somewhat hard to find, but the guards at the gates are helpful. Yes..it is gated and safe. I would recommend and we WILL stay again.
