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!!!!”
Dr. Beach “American’s Foremost Beach Expert”, director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International university has ranked the Top 10 beaches every year since 1991. He bases his findings on 50 criteria such as water and sand quality, facilities available and trash maintenance.
We cannot remember a year where Kiawah’s Beachwalker Park has not been on that list.
Yet another feather in the cap of the greater Charleston area……..and our lovely West Islands.

Property Owners and guests celebrated in style on the Lake House lawn after a day of exhibitions and entertainment beginning at the Equestrian Center, moving to the Tennis Center, then culminating with wonderful music, food and reminiscences of people and events on Seabrook over 25 years. The Charleston Symphony Orchestra was a fabulous toe tapping, hand clapping treat. The biggest joy for this writer was seeing such a large gathering of Seabrookers enjoying the beautiful space created for our enjoyment…the Lake House lawn with Palmetto lake as a backdrop. Here’s to many more events in this great space.
