In just 20 years, this award-winning planned community has developed into one of the top residential addresses in Charleston. Complete with restaurants, shopping, schools, churches, professional sports stadiums and a private country club, it is much more than a private community. Daniel Island is a true island town, home to over 10,000 residents, some of Charleston's top businesses and several of the region's top festivals and events.
Spanning 4,000 acres and surrounded by rivers, creeks and Charleston Harbor, Daniel Island boasts 23 miles of shoreline, offering residents access to boating, fishing, swimming, crabbing and other aquatic pursuits. More than 400 acres of this sea island have been transformed into an array of parks and open greenspace, and more than 20 miles of leisure trails traverse the island, meandering through neighborhoods and parks, along the marsh and through the island's downtown.
Located in the golf neighborhood of Daniel Island Park, the Daniel Island Club is the island's private country club, featuring two 18-hole golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Rees Jones in a setting of Lowcountry marsh, parkland and tidal creeks. The club also offers swim, tennis and fitness amenities and several options for fine and casual dining, plus a year-round calendar of social and sporting events.
Daniel Island's traditional neighborhoods feature tree- and sidewalk-lined streets and classic southern architecture. A wide variety of homes, townhomes and condominiums offer a comprehensive selection of residential options, or buyers can choose from a special selection of golf neighborhood homesites in Daniel Island Park.
Off the island, there is much to explore. From the vibrant and historic streets of downtown Charleston - ranked by several national media outlets as the country's top travel destination - to Atlantic beaches, world-class culinary offerings, historic plantations and more, Charleston truly offers something for everyone. And when the need to travel arises, Charleston's newly renovated airport is just a 15 minute drive from the neighborhoods of Daniel Island.

I couldn’t think of a better place to raise my children! Daniel Island seems to have it all from the wonderful parks, swimming pools and bike trails to the great schools, churches, shops and restaurants. We just love living here. It is safe, the kids can ride their bikes to school, and it’s only a short drive to the beaches and downtown Charleston.
