Port Royal Plantation Real Estate was developed by The Hilton Head Company in the 1970s. The distinguishing factor about this Plantation is that it is the ONLY private, gated community on Hilton Head Island, SC that is on the ocean and does not allow short-term rentals.
Many of the full-time residents/owners would live nowhere else on the Island for that simple fact, and the home lots are amongst some the largest of any community on the island – the typical full-size lot approaches 1 full acre!
Some of the amenities to be found are the Port Royal Golf Club with three championship golf courses – The Barony, Robbers Row, and Planters Row. There are also outdoor tennis courts and an active membership at the club.
Residents on- and off-ocean use the PR Beach Club which also has an outdoor swimming pool and park/playground. There is a separate tennis facility and arboretum on Fort Walker Drive and a plethora of open spaces and parks to be found all around the area.
The Westin Resort is oceanfront and accessed through Port Royal, but not part of the plantation itself. Many residents use it for their guests and for the beach, spa, and health club facilities that are available on a membership basis. The Port Royal Plaza is also across Highway 278 from the Plantation, with an assortment of medical, auto repair, shops, restaurants, and grocery stores.
Port Royal Plantation properties include almost exclusively single-family residential homes and building lots – there are no villa complexes ocean front or ocean-oriented.
There are many legal addresses with which you can search using the site’s advanced search feature to find homes in this area – those that are ocean front are the Grasslawns, Planters Row, Ocean Point, Overlook Ext, Overlook Place, and Block S.
