About John Clark

My wife and I have lived on Callawassie Island since 2000. We enjoy the casual life style and found Callawassie Island unmatched with the abundance of indigenous wildlife, century old live oaks and spectacular marshland sunsets.

Why John Clark chose Okatie

We have made Callawassie Island our main residency. We find visitors looking to relocate, need a long term rental opportunity while exploring or building their home in the area.

Amazing Low Country Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 3 months at Callawassie Island and could have stayed forever. If your looking for an environment that provides relaxation, and a dose of nature, this is the place to be.

This very special villa was exceptionally clean,well maintained and comfortable. The owners, who are such lovely people, were just a phone call away to answer any questions.

We can't wait to return to this magical place!

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely villa right on the golf course for 3 months while we looked for a house to buy in the Beaufort/Bluffton area. This was the perfect place for us during that time. Well-kept, quiet and it felt like home! John and Rose, the owners, are the nicest people you could ever hope to meet!! They made sure we had everything we needed and were very responsive if we had questions or requests. We did buy a home near by; but if I was looking for a vacation rental I would definitely stay here again.

Great Golf Vacation Home Right On the Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Golf Home on the the fairway of the 1st Hole. Very close to the clubhouse. I had a great experience with all of the friendly neighbors within the community. Excellent service from the homeowner. My kids enjoyed the swimming pools and taking pictures of alligators. This is an ideal golf vacation home. I hope to be able to visit this home and community again.

Beautiful home, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the villa was idyllic. While we've stayed in other villas on the island before, this one was by far the nicest, beautifully appointed (it felt like a home, not a rental) and offered all the conveniences we needed (both electronic and culinary). Our young children love the island (the pools, the golf instruction, the alligators lounging around). It was an ideal family get-away. We hope to rent here again.

April 2013 on Callawassie Island

  • 5 of 5

We loved our month on Callawassie Island. The accomodations were very nice. King size bed on the main floor bedroom was very comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and cook our meals, and the BBQ on the deck, over looking the first hole, was used extensively. The house has a PVR, telephone, and WiFi. The 27 holes of golf were very enjoyable. All three 9's were in excellent condition and equally challenging with very good greens. Excellent range with grass hitting area and short game (bunker, chipping, and putting) facility. Pool at the club house is very nice and a second pool at the "River Club" with a long deck out into the marsh was very scenic. The Island is very natural and quite with many birds and wild life. We also rode our bikes on the Island and the adjoining Spring Island which was very nice. The surrounding areas of Beaufort and Hilton Head are about a 15 to 20 minute drive and offer much history and many places to explore. John the owner was very helpful and great to deal with. We highly recommend this property and area and look forward to returning.

We enjoyed our month at this beautiful villa on Callawassi Island. It was very peaceful, relaxing and homey. The furniture was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed watching the golfers go by on the first fairway from the sun room and we also played the three courses several times. The pro shop and clubhouse are within an easy walking distance from the villa. Callawassi Island is only a twenty minute drive to historic Beaufort and the many quaint shops. For a great vacation we highly recommend this property.

Tom Fazio award winning 27 hole golf course designed to take advantage of the Island's natural beauty to create visual drama and superb play-ability. Magnificent live oaks, magnolias, freshwater ponds and the surrounding saltwater marsh, come into play on most holes. Inspiring vistas and abundant wildlife make nature a part of the golf experience.

Rated among the top courses in South Carolina, the Callawassie Island Course offers challenges for every skill level. Three distinct courses provide variety and assure availability throughout the year. Each of the nines has its own character and degree of difficulty. Five sets of tees make the courses enjoyable to golfers of all skill levels.

-Palmetto requires precision, with water hazards on eight of the nine holes.

-Magnolia challenges all aspects of a player's game, but offers rewards at the end with two spectacular holes.

-Dogwood offers the experience of low-country golf, with the four closing holes along the salt marshes.
