I read your question regarding Pawleys Island and Daniels Island but I would like to suggest you take a look at our area..Santee/Manning, SC. We are located approximately 60 miles from Pawleys Island and Daniels Island off I-95. We have several beautiful golf courses with HOA fees of 350.00/year (The Wyboo course was rated as one of the top 10 public courses in SC by golf digest in 1999) and new patio homes start around $145,000.00 and up. Some of our older courses don't even have HOA fees anymore and new homes are avaliable on them for 225,000.00. We also have a 110000 acre fresh water lake called Lake Marion that runs through our towns that host 4 major bass tournaments a year and 2 major cat fish tournaments a year. We have many retired people from all over the United States and Canada that call our small towns home! If golf carts are a method of transportation to you, you want to know your neighbors, and you like for people to call you by your name....then Manning/Santee will be a good place for you to call home. Come give us a chance! I would love to show you around.
If you would like me to send you some listings from each community so you can get a feel for the area I would be happy to. Good luck in your search!
