Kiawah Island A Natural Place to Live

The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home.  The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country.  It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique.  I look forward to helping you with any of your Charleston SC Real Estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:

Kiawah Island A Natural Place to Live

Kiawah Island has ten miles of wide, flat, white sandy beaches.  But, the beach is only the beginning.  Kiawah Island has 10,000 acres which includes nearly 45 miles of waterfront highlands over looking lagoons, marshes, ponds, tidal creeks, and Kiawah River.  The centuries old maritime forest throughout Kiawah Island consists of tall pines, palm trees, magnolia trees, and ancient live oaks.  Although Kiawah Island has the feel of a secluded tropical island it is only 35 minutes from downtown Charleston.

Kiawah Island has held true to its award winning master plan, which is based on a deep love of and commitment to the Island’s natural beauty and its wildlife.  This plan has allowed an extraordinary resort – residential community to develop which boasts world class golf courses, a five star resort- The Sanctuary, excellent dining, and privately owned homes, cottages, and villas.  All of this is accomplished with minimal impact on the natural environment of Kiawah Island.

Kiawah’s recreational opportunities are boundless whether you are a resident or a guest.  Property owners can enjoy the Sandcastle which has a heated outdoor pool, fitness center and much more.  Property owners also have boat ramps to launch for fishing or kayaking or pleasure excursions.  Guests of the Resort can us the heated pool at Night Heron Park.  Everyone is invited to spend time at the Nature Center in Night Heron Park and to take advantage of the outdoor recreational facilities that includes a basketball court, soccer field, and playground for the little ones.  There are also 6 golf courses.

Come to Kiawah Island and you might make it your home.  I did.  The 20+ miles of bike paths, the wide sandy beaches, the natural environment, and the fishing on the surf and the tidal creeks are the reasons I believe this is the best place in the world to live.

As always, your thoughts, questions, or comments are greatly appreciated.
