Daniel Island is often given the moniker “Modern Mayberry” because of its casual, comfortable, and convenient way of life. Located just five miles from Mt. Pleasant and 14 miles from Charleston, residents of Daniel Island have their own private oasis, a picturesque island with stately homes, gas lanterns, inviting front porches, and gentle salt breezes. The streets are lined with majestic oak trees, dripping with Spanish moss and wisteria in the spring. Bike trails meander along the river and through the various subdivisions, and open green spaces provide the perfect place for pick-up soccer games and king of the hill battles. A remarkably safe and friendly community, families on Daniel Island are pleased to give their children the freedom to play at the park, fish at Smythe Lake, catch fiddler crabs in the creek, swim at one of the three community pools, and bike to and from school. The island also touts one of Charleston’s finest private country clubs, which features championship golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pool, fitness facility, restaurant and bar, pavilion, guest cottages, and a clubhouse reminiscent of a sweeping southern plantation.
