Hilton Head Home
The Lowcountry has just about everything, and our members have access to the most information possible when it comes to buying a Lowcountry home.

At just 12 miles long and five miles wide, Hilton Head Island has a lot to offer. That’s why Southern Living magazine’s readers named Hilton Head Island the South’s Best Beach for 2018. With the help of Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island (HHIMLS), this top-rated beach can be called home.

The beautiful beach of Hilton Head Island competed with shores all around the Southern U.S. before being named number one. The area, which is best known for its golf resorts, pristine beaches, and waterways that are ideal for paddling, is the perfect spot for anyone to live or vacation. Southern Living readers describe the winner as an area that “has been around for a while and has grown comfortable in its own skin.”

The resort town, incorporated in 1983, offers some the most iconic golf courses of the Lowcountry. Surrounding these courses is abundant nature and unique wildlife that call the Pinckney National Wildlife Refuge home. All around the island you’ll see live oaks draped in Spanish-moss, giving the area its own style and culture. Not only does the island offer stunning wildlife and nature, you’ll also find quality healthcare, a refreshing culture, premier dining, and a year-round temperate climate. It’s no wonder over 2.5 million people visit the area each year.

While the area was only incorporated in 1983, its unique history includes the Gullah culture and the Civil War, giving the area its own historical charm. Locals can introduce you to the Gullah heritage, former battle ports and forts, and historic buildings.

While traveling around the island, you’ll find ample amounts of art, music, and mouthwatering food. Surround yourself in fine art at South Carolina’s oldest professional gallery, Red Piano Art Gallery. Then take a step back in time at the Jazz Corner, an old-school jazz nightclub. When it’s time to eat, you can taste the flavor of the Lowcountry at any of the 250 restaurants on the island.

“I am so lucky to have the privilege to provide agents the tools to assist their clients in finding their ideal home in an area that has vast options and is so welcoming,” said Colette Stevenson, chief executive officer of HHIMLS. “The Lowcountry has just about everything, and our members have access to the most information possible when it comes to buying a Lowcountry home.”

If Hilton Head sounds like the perfect place to live or vacation, that’s because it is. HHIMLS members have even more insight into the area and can find a piece of paradise in Hilton Head, Bluffton, Beaufort, or any of the dozens of cities in South Carolina.
