The Location

Buck Island is situated just off the coast of Hilton Head Island, where Broad Creek gently meets the Calibogue Sound and Intracoastal Waterway. Approximately ten acres of maritime forests provide outstanding and impressive water views from every point on the island. The west side of the island is framed by the Calibogue Sound and Intracoastal Waterway. To the east lies Broad Creek and the marshes of Hilton Head Island. The island consists of the main island and a hammock islands covered with oak, palm, and pine trees. Buck Island offers you a sanctuary of peaceful relaxation where memories ebb and flow with the Lowcountry tides.


The Experience

Stepping ashore and traveling along the quiet path beneath the forest canopy leading to this magical home, is a sensation like no other. It feels like a departure from the current cares of the world or even to another era entirely. Don't be fooled though, the home is equipped with every modern convenience one could want. And getting to the Island is easy; leaving the beautiful surrounds and peacefulness of the island may be the hard part. Included with the Island is a Harbour Town boat slip which is less than a ten-minute boat ride from the slip to Buck Island's dock.

A true generational asset, the main home was constructed in the late 1980's and has been in the same family since. This picturesque compound includes the main house with a pool and pond, guest house, storage barn, and docks all connected by paths and tree-lined walkways. The island is self-sufficient with water in place and electric and telephone provided from shore.
