About Windmill Harbour
The first plantation community you see once on Hilton Head Island, Windmill Harbour’s location is close to schools both off- and on-island as well as to shopping, dining, and entertainment. These 170 acres border the Intracoastal Waterway and the Calibogue Sound, across the highway from the Hilton Head RV Resort & Marina. Its most prominent feature is a manmade 15-acre inland harbour with an extremely advanced lock system, one of the community’s main attractions; it is double the size of Sea Pines Resort’s Harbour Town. Windmill Harbour is the location of the South Carolina Yacht Club as well as a small marine store.
Windmill Harbour History
Planned as a 172-acre community on Jenkins Island by Sea Pines Co. and Jenkins Island Realty Corporation, Windmill Harbour is a statement in energy conservation. The community was created in 1981 by J.R. Richardson, a longtime friend of Charles Fraser, and 1983 saw its grand opening with lots as affordable as $50,000. Conservational accessories on homes were to include rooftop turbines for air circulation and water-efficient toilets, among others. Windmill’s sales sold out by 1992.
