South of Charleston and surrounded by sparkling rivers you’ll find Johns Island, a beautiful rural community set back from the hustle and bustle of the city. With its towering oak trees, picturesque marshes and easy water access, Johns Island is sought out by those seeking a tranquil coastal lifestyle.

Unmatched Natural Beauty. Driving onto the island via Maybank Highway, you’ll be welcomed by an impressive canopy of grand oak trees draped in Spanish moss, offering a small taste of the island’s unparalleled beauty. The Johns Island community has worked hard over the years to protect the area from being overdeveloped, preserving mature forests, waterways and abundant wildlife so that all can enjoy them.

Affordable Homes. This island community offers a variety of homes for all lifestyles, including many affordable options. From charming midcentury homes to new construction to luxurious waterfront estates, the possibilities are almost endless when it comes to finding your dream island home.

Outdoor Recreation. In addition to its miles of rivers and waterways, the island community is home to the 738-acre Mullet Hall Equestrian Center which attracts horse-lovers from miles around. Whether you’re interested in kayaking, fishing, or riding trails, there is no shortage of fun outdoor activities.

Private Countryside Living. Though its only 10 miles from downtown Charleston, Johns Island appeals to many for its serene countryside lifestyle. Lush vegetation borders the roadways and you’ll find mature trees on nearly every homesite, creating a private and peaceful environment for residents.

Shopping and Dining Options. From world-class Italian food at Wild Olive to seafood cuisine at the Royal Tern, there is a wonderful selection of both casual and upscale dining options on Johns Island. On nearby Kiawah Island, visit Freshfields Village for one-of-a-kind boutiques and galleries.
