Leamington…a hidden gem in a private oceanfront and golf community.

Nestled in the “epicenter” of beautiful Hilton Head Island are three interconnected communities covering 2,000 acres Palmetto Dunes, Shelter Cove and Leamington. Each community has their own property owners association. With their abundance of amenities, they form the Island’s most comprehensive oceanfront family residential resort community, one of the finest on the East Coast. Together, they form the Island’s most comprehensive oceanfront residential resort community on the Island. Across Highway 278 is Shelter Cove Harbour, Shelter Cove Towne Centre, The Plaza at Shelter Cove and Veteran’s Park on the Broad Creek side. The adjacent community is Palmetto Dunes which offers three miles of pristine, white, sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean and world-class golf and tennis. Leisure paths wind throughout Leamington. The owners have access to the Arthur Hills, George Fazio and Robert Trent Jones Golf Courses. The Leamington community is unique with two separate neighborhoods comprising their community, the Sustained Residential area and Condominiums/Villa area.


The first neighborhood is the private, residential area that offers 460+ acres with 306 homes and 60 oceanfront villas and townhomes. Within Leamington is the acclaimed Arthur Hills Golf Course, pro shop, driving range and putting green. Owners can tool around in their golf carts to the beach and throughout the community and is the only oceanfront private community on Hilton Head Island with golf cart usage. Short-term rentals are not permitted in this community.

The beautiful settings in the community allow for leisure ride throughout the 11-mile lagoon system that winds through Leamington and Palmetto Dunes. Battery operated boats, kayaking, fishing, and canoeing are permitted. A great investment for permanent or second home living.
