Dewees Island is a private barrier island off the coast of Charleston that is dedicated to preservation. We are a quick ferry ride from all of Charleston's charms, yet the island is peaceful and serene. Dewees remains in a much more natural state than many ocean islands. At the same time, the island has a beautiful community pool. Great fishing, birding, and beaches. We travel by golf cart. And with no stores or restaurants, Dewees is a magical escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
Charlotte's Pearl is a pristine barrier island retreat with one of the most beautiful beaches in the southeast accessible only by private ferry. With no restaurants or stores, no cars or stoplights, Dewees Island offers a return to nature with all the comforts of home. We travel only by golf cart on Dewees. Our home is one of only 60 houses on this 1200 acre island. Our house is located near a beach access path which allows for an easy walk to the beach or a short golf cart ride. Most of the two and a half mile long island is untouched by development and over half in permanent conservation. You are often the only ones on the beach. Wildlife abounds on the island and includes deer, water fowl and migrating birds. The two tidal lakes on the island provide great fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping. However, just because you feel like you are worlds away from the stress you left behind, you are only 20 minutes from shopping, great restaurants, golf and the romantic city of Charleston via our comfortable Dewees Island ferry. Dolphins often escort the ferry to and from the island.
The custom built elevated second row home provides a wonderful private two acre oasis on the edge of a maritime forest with lake and marsh views. The sights and sounds of nature dominate. You feel like you are staying in your own private tree house with the closest visible home on the other side of the lake. The floor plan is inverted to allow maximum advantage of the marsh and lake views from the living areas and wrap around covered screened porch on the top floor. Each bedroom on the second level opens to a covered screened porch. Both master bedrooms have their own private screened porch. From the rooftop observation deck, the views of the ocean and inter-coastal waterway are magnificent.
As our guest you are able to use all the amenities of the Huyler House such as the wonderful pool area and tennis courts. The Huyler is a magnificent lodge that serves as the center of the community.
