A private oceanfront community only 20 miles from charming Charleston, SC, Seabrook Island offers a rewarding coastal lifestyle with top-notch amenities. Designated a Certified Sustainable Community by Audubon International, its 2,200 acres include 4 miles of pristine beach, vast swaths of serene marsh with winding rivers, and a maritime forest full of birds and other native wildlife.  

Purchasing property on Seabrook, whether it is a homesite, villa, cottage, townhome, or single-family home includes joining Seabrook Island Club. Club membership levels are full, social, or community.  

Seabrook’s 2 championship golf courses – Crooked Oaks (by Robert Trent Jones, Sr.) and Ocean Winds (by Willard Byrd, renovated by Rees Jones, Inc) – are both ranked among “Best You Can Play” in South Carolina every year. The Island House clubhouse has ocean and golf views from its restaurants, and an inviting golf veranda with fire pits and a “Pour My Beer/Wine” wall.  

The Racquet Sports Center is undergoing a $4 million upgrade, and already has 15 Har-Tru tennis courts, 2 (soon to be 6) pickleball courts, and pro shop. Its courts are recognized as some of the best in the Southeast, and thus chosen to host the Alan Fleming Tennis Tournament year after year.  

Seabrook Island’s oceanfront Beach Club is spectacular! Two pools, an outdoor restaurant mixing ocean breezes with fresh seafood, a bar and grill, and a cafe with to-go items ranging from healthy salads to the best soft serve ice cream you’ve ever tasted – all with an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean and direct access to the beach steps away. 

Not many places on the coast have horses, but Seabrook does. The full-service, 22-acre Equestrian Center features trail and beach rides, and boarding. Seabrook Island POA’s Lake House is the wellness and fitness center with spacious rooms for using state-of-the-art machines and free weights, a robust schedule of classes, and an outdoor (recreational) pool and indoor (lap swim / aerobics / therapy / lessons) pool. 

Bohicket Marina and Freshfields Village are within one mile of the security gate for more dining, shopping (including a grocery store), events, and entertainment without having to travel far.
