From its beginnings back in 1927 to today, the Cottage Colony has evolved from a small cluster of quaint cottages to a neighborhood of nearly 600 single-family homes, all within walking distance to the beach. As a result of its history (which reflects the history of Sea Island itself), the Colony today offers one of the most diverse collections of architectural styles and layouts available on the island, with floor plans ranging between three and eight bedrooms, from cozy marsh-front cottages to sprawling oceanfront residences, and everything in between. Depending on location, residents of this gated community enjoy views of nature, the river, marshes or the ocean—and of course, all residents enjoy the convenience to Sea Island Club amenities.


Residents of the Sea Island Cottages and Home Sites enjoy the following amenities:

  • Private gated entry (gate house attended 24 hours a day)
  • Sea Island Club application rights
  • Ocean, marsh, river or nature views
  • Beach access
  • Walking/biking distance to Beach Club and The Cloister

Whether you choose one of the existing neighborhood properties or decide to build your own dream home on one of the remaining available home sites, you’ll find plenty of reasons to love living at the Cottage Colony. To learn more about current availability, talk with one of our agents today.
