Callawassie IslandCoastal South Carolina
On the south end of one of America's Happiest Seaside Towns, lies a private island surrounded by saltwater marsh offering lifestyle amenities focused around golf, tennis and the waterways. The sweet melodies of bird life is about all you'll hear, when you stop to listen on the Sea Islands South Carolina. Established in 1986, this 880 acre Low Country real estate development has a combination of lush vegetation and open common area space canopied by tall pine trees and live oak trees. Callawassie Island prides itself on obtaining certification as a National Wildlife Federation Community Habitat where it's common to spot deer, fox, egrets, herons and an occasional alligator.
Amenities include a 26,000 square foot golf clubhouse, restaurant, fitness center, two resorty-style swimming pools, six Har-Tru tennis courts, four community boat docks, and a River Club. An ideal combination for coastal retirement communities. The 27 hole championship Tom Fazio golf course renovation was completed in 2009. Property owners are required to become members of the golf club. Callawassie Island is golf cart friendly. The 11 miles of exposed marsh land surrounding the island provide excellent places to explore by kayak or go shrimping, crabbing and fishing. At the River Club, a kayak launch hugs the shore is easily accessible for residents. Callawassie Island has four private community boat docks, but no boat ramps. Boat ramps are conveniently located nearby.
