Windmill Harbour Real Estate


A charming welcome to Hilton Head Island, Windmill Harbour presents a unique harbor-oriented community with its own brand of Charleston-style architecture including gorgeous single-family homes and luxury townhomes. Much of the community enjoys outstanding water views to the harbour, marina, or out to the Calibogue Sound.

This sea-lovers paradise is the first gated community to greet visitors after coming off the HHI Bridge, offering private residential living with easy access to grocery stores, medical facilities, outlet shopping, a library, post office, and restaurants – all within a 20-minute drive.

Special Events The community hosts special events throughout the year including the annual Hilton Head Island Boat Show, 4th of July parade, Harbour Stroll and more.

Schools Children living in the community attend Hilton Head public or private schools for preschool thru high school education. Visit our Lowcountry Insiders Guide for more information on school options in the area, including private schools and the Beaufort County School District.


The Harbour and Lock Adjacent to the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway on the North-end of the Island, the community spans 172 acres, including a fifteen-acre inland harbor and lock system. Windmill Harbour enjoys a deluge of marina activities and is home to the prestigious South Carolina Yacht Club. The location is ideal for the community’s three harbors, which comprise the Windmill Harbour Marina, with easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. The harbour enjoys 258 privately owned boat slips for every type of boat you can imagine, including sailboats and yachts, in the secure marina. The lock is one of only 3 on the entire eastern seaboard!

South Carolina Yacht Club Members of the Yacht Club enjoy premium amenities, inclusive of a club pool, fitness center, social clubs and events plus elegant dining options. Membership is optional and not a requirement of property owners.
