So far, we’ve covered some of the Lowcountry’s best landing spots in our local moving guides this year.


From Summerville to Kiawah Island, Isle of Palms to Folly Beach, there’s a place for anyone moving to (or within) this beautiful place we call home. 


Today we’re going to take a look at one of the more “hidden gems” of the Lowcountry: Seabrook Island. 


Seabrook is known for its exclusivity, beautiful oceanfront views and, of course, the charm & hospitality that makes the Lowcountry so great. 


About Seabrook Island


If you’ve ever made your way to Kiawah, most likely you’ve seen the Seabrook Island turn off, just before reaching Kiawah.  


This little island location sits just south and west of Kiawah and is a private, gated community in the Lowcountry.


With history dating back to the 17th century, Seabrook takes its name from William Seabrook – a local cotton plantation owner – who purchased it in 1816.


From there, Seabrook changed hands several times until the Seabrook Island Property Owners Association was voted in control in 1984 and a few years later, the Town of Seabrook Island was officially formed. 


From there Seabrook has added & improved through several community driven projects and continues to do so to this day. 


Places To Live On Seabrook Island


Although very exclusive, there are opportunities to both buy existing homes as well as buy land to build your own island getaway.


Some notable areas of Seabrook Island:


North Beach Homes

Salt Marsh Townhomes

The Village At Seabrook

Seabrook Island Villa & Cottage Communities

Bohicket Marina

The Seabrook Island Club

Tips For Your Move To Seabrook Island


With your sights set on Seabrook Island and a place to live settled on, it’s time to look at moving your household goods to the island. 


It’s not always easy to know when to start planning your move, but here are some quick tips for you to get you started. 


Prepare Your Moving Plans Early 


Last minute moves are stress inducing projects – for everyone involved in your move, including your movers.  Planning your move can start months in advance in most cases and allows you to line up your packing activities and moving company (more on that later). 


Busy Beach Season


Though Seabrook & Kiawah doesn’t experience the “rush” of other beaches in the Lowcountry, like Folly, waiting until the “off-season” (outside of June, July & August) can be advantageous in some cases.


Hire Lowcountry Local Movers


Moving to Seabrook Island can be a unique experience due to its exclusivity, so hiring local movers can help avoid unnecessary hurdles you might run into moving to a community like Seabrook. 


If you see Seabrook Island on the horizon for your upcoming move to (or within) the Lowcountry, we know you’ll love living there and experiencing the local charm & hospitality it’s well known for.
