An Intimate and Diverse Community

Kiawah Island is a private residential resort community located just south of Charleston, South Carolina on the Atlantic Ocean. It is a natural barrier island whose 10 miles of spectacular beachfront call to owners and guests from all over the world.

Our 8,000 members live in all 50 states and 14 countries; 80% of our membership reside elsewhere full-time. Approximately 4,000 properties, with a variety of neighborhood villages and regime associations make up the island. Most regimes (some are known as homeowners’ associations, or sub-associations) are additionally governed by their own covenants and boards of directors. Independent management companies administer the business requirements of these properties. A dozen rental agencies manage hundreds of vacation rentals.
