Charleston Sea Islands
In the pink-gold light of a saltwater
riverside, a village begins.

Hello friends!


Your timing is excellent. Completed homes, neighborhood parks, the farm and riverfront Spring House are all blossoming with life at Kiawah River. We’re thrilled to tell you more about our Agrihood happenings, too.


Every day at Kiawah River brings something new—sometimes it’s red-ripe tomatoes at the farm or wildflower meadows popping with blooms. Other days it may be fishing stories shared on the porch or those long sunset views of sparkling saltwater.


We invite you to explore this special sea island setting nestled within 2,000 acres of pastoral waterfront along the Kiawah River. See the homes and village gathering places already established, and underway.


We can’t wait to welcome you to Kiawah River, and to all of the beautiful days ahead.

These 2,000 acres of Johns Island are teeming with sea island life—herons and osprey, redfish and oyster beds, oaks and pines, creeks and ponds, and wide spans of marsh grass along the Kiawah River.

Legacies for Charleston.

Founded in 1945 by J.C. Long, The Beach Company has led landmark and community-defining projects ever since. That includes the development of Isle of Palms as a residential beachfront community, as well as nearby, Kiawah Island.

Each project is evaluated by its potential to improve both the quality of life of residents and the long-term economic vitality of the region. The Beach Company is honored to be at the helm of Kiawah River at the start of this new sea island village.

“This impressive tract will be developed as a green conservation community, employing state-of-the-art principles of sustainability.”

Kevin O’Neill, VP of Development
Begun in 1945 to create a lasting vision for the Isle of Palms, The Beach Company still works from its hometown, with offices on Broad Street in downtown Charleston.
