Kiawah Island gets a new private residence club.
Boutique resort and residence developer Timbers Resorts will break ground this summer on South Carolina’s Kiawah Island. Timbers Kiawah Ocean Club & Residences will be the island’s first private residence club. The beachfront resort and community offers ten miles of crescent-shaped beach and world-class amenities just south of nearby Charleston.
Timbers Kiawah Ocean Club & Residences will offer 21 thoughtfully designed residences across three oceanfront buildings, a private clubhouse offering a central lounge area, owner services team, valet, temperature-controlled owners’ wine wall, bar and state-of-the art fitness facility. A private beach club will feature an oceanfront pool, bar and grill and beach services.
“Kiawah Island is a destination we’ve had our eye on for many years. It’s an established location that has it all – the best beach on the east coast, access to retail and restaurants, and an incomparable lifestyle – and we are excited to introduce a fresh, contemporary residential offering into the mix,” said David Burden, Timbers Resorts Founder & Executive Chairman. “Our vision is to create a casual, family-focused experience that touches lightly on the land and provides Timbers’ version of southern hospitality. We look forward to opening in summer 2018.”
Kiawah Island features 123 acres of parks, 30 miles of biking trails, and access to the Kiawah River for boating, kayaking and fishing. Kiawah is also home to the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, which will host the 2021 PGA Championship, having previously hosted in 2012.
Timbers Kiawah is the newest addition to Timbers Collection, an international portfolio of resorts, hotels and residence clubs. The Timbers Collection offers perks and privileges from travel and lifestyle partners including Sentient Jet and BMW, as well as the opportunity to trade vacation time with other owners through the Timbers Reciprocity Program.
Timbers Resorts, in partnership with funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”), will develop the property. Oaktree is a leading global alternative investment firm and a major shareholder of Timbers.
