Explore Life on a Private Luxury Island

Living on a private island provides one-of-a-kind benefits and experiences that you won’t find anywhere else. From strolling serene beaches to playing exclusive golf courses, residents spend their time taking in all the island lifestyle has to offer. 

If you’re considering moving to a private luxury island, continue reading to discover the many benefits this lifestyle can provide you. 

1. Privacy 

For those looking to enjoy a more private life, living on a secluded island is ideal. With controlled entry and minimal traffic, a private luxury island allows residents to fully relax away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. 

For even more privacy, residents can elect to purchase a property tucked along the outskirts of the island. For example, Cougar Island on Kiawah is a 25-acre estate that offers unparalleled privacy. With an 800-foot buffer between the likely home footprint and the closest neighboring house, residents will enjoy living in their own personal oasis. 

2. Tight-knit Community

The close-knit nature of a private luxury island creates a strong sense of community. On Kiawah Island, homeowners of qualifying properties have the opportunity to join the Kiawah Island Club, which hosts events that foster community engagement. That way, residents can get to know their neighbors through shared experiences. These social gatherings create a sense of camaraderie for both children and adults alike. In fact, Kiawah Island Club Members have created friendships that span generations. 

You can often find Members socializing at The Beach Club or engaging in friendly competition on the golf course. Whether you prefer spending time in nature, playing sports, or enjoying the arts, you can find like-minded individuals within the Kiawah Island Club.

3. Access to Nature and Conservation

Having exclusive access to nature is one of the main draws of living on a private luxury island. With white sand beaches, winding lagoons, and scenic nature trails basically in your backyard, you can commune with nature whenever your heart desires.

Because nature is of paramount importance to private islands, conservation of wildlife is prioritized. On Kiawah Island, you will often see bottlenose dolphins splashing along the shoreline, blue herons set upon the marsh, and loggerhead turtles nesting in the summertime. Residents share the Island with 18 species of mammals, more than 30 species of reptiles, and more than 300 bird species. We value our vast wildlife population and take pride in protecting their ecosystem through long-term preservation practices. That way, Kiawah Island residents can enjoy the remarkable natural habitats that flourish across the Island for years to come.
