Dunes Properties this past weekend sponsored the inaugural 5K Turtle Trek on Isle of Palms to help benefit the turtle hospital at the Charleston Aquarium. Even though located about 20-25 miles northeast as the turtle swims, Isle of Palms is still just as important a nesting beach to the turtles as the beaches we call our own here on Kiawah and Seabrook.
This event resonated with us at dunes properties given our involvement in selling real estate along the Charleston Coast, the same real estate the turtles call home. The Kiawah Seabrook group was well represented at the event with Karen Hilty and Joy Millar participating. They were also joined by Kristin Walker, one of our downtown sales associates, and Traci Magnus, our head of marketing.
This event is something Karen found very important as she actively participates in the Turtle Patrol here on our beaches on Kiawah and Seabrook. Karen had this to say after the event, “The race was a sell out, and our performance…well, let’s just say it was in keeping with the named beneficiary!!!!”
The Kiawah Seabrook Group of Dunes Properties will be hosting an open house event with 8 houses and villas. Come join us from 2-4pm to see these magnificent listings and to meet several of our agents. Event passes will be available at the front gate of Seabrook so everyone can attend. The properties we will be showcasing are:

CONGRATULATIONS from the Kiawah Seabrook Group on 10 years of providing
luxury lodging on Kiawah Island. We’re delighted to have such a beautiful
facility – unrivaled in the state of South Carolina, right here in our own
backyard. Designed to look like an old Southern mansion and spanning 25
acres, The Sanctuary is the most expensive hotel ever built-in South
Carolina. With the highly coveted distinction of both a Forbes Five-Star and
AAA Five-Diamond rating the hotel lives up to its ultra-luxury reputation.
According to Sanctuary GM Bill Lacey, as noted in the Post & Courier, the
hotel is still basking in “the PGA afterglow” with hotel revenue at an
all-time record last year. We eagerly anticipate the resort’s next plan to
expand their accommodation offering on the island.
