To preserve the awe-inspiring nature of Kiawah Island, development here is tightly controlled. So when Timbers Resorts had the opportunity to build Timbers Kiawah Ocean Club & Residences right on the island’s magnificent 10-mile-long beach, they knew the resort had to be special. Timbers brought a lot of new ideas to Kiawah. A private ocean club. A contemporary interpretation of lowcountry style. And the opportunity for fractional ownership, which is almost unheard of on the eastern seaboard.
