If the hustle and bustle of Bluffton and Hilton Head Island are not what you’re looking for, just down the road in Okatie is the private, gated community of Callawassie Island. Bordered by the Colleton, Okatie, and Chechessee rivers, Callawassie is the first community in South Carolina designated as a “Community Wildlife Habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation.
While there are plenty of activities and amenities in Callawassie, life seems to unfold at a more leisurely pace. Residents enjoy long walks or bike rides throughout the miles of paths and trails. On the water, sailing, kayaking, fishing, crabbing, and shrimping are but a few of the activities that take place in area tidal rivers, creeks, and lagoons.
Golf at Callawassie features three distinct nine-hole layouts by famed course Architect Tom Fazio. The Palmetto requires precision shot making, with water hazards on eight of the nine holes. The Magnolia is designed to challenge all facets of your game, but rewards you at the end with two of the most spectacular holes you will ever play. The Dogwood lets you experience Lowcountry golf at its finest, with the four closing holes along the salt marsh.
Callawassie Island real estate features homes and lots along the riverfront, marshes, and golf course. Larger lots along the river are priced at over $200,000 while more common lots along lagoons, golf course, and wooded views are priced $10,000 and up.
Callawassie Island real estate is also home to moderately priced villas in the $160k-$200k price range. Single family homes range from the mid $200’s to over $1M.
