We first reported that Timbers Resorts, a developer and operator of luxury boutique properties, would be opening Timbers Kiawah - Ocean Club & Residences, the first and only residential development on Kiawah Island’s oceanfront in over 30 years. The luxurious Southern property is now open, which is made up of 21 thoughtfully designed residences across three oceanfront buildings.
That personalized experience is something David Burden, the founder and executive chairman of Timbers Resorts, says was paramount for his team while they were building Timbers Kiawah. “We wanted to create a personalized experience for like-minded residents to enjoy their time vacationing and not worry about maintaining a second home year-round. They have all the luxuries of a five-star resort but also have the space of a standalone home—without the headache of year-round maintenance, which can quickly become a part-time job for many traditional homeowners.”
Sean Daly, a retired partner with a major accounting firm, has a lot o practice working with fractions. Now he has used that skill to amass a portfolio of vacation homes in pie-chart slices: one-tenth of a ski home in Vail, one-twelfth of an oceanfront retreat on Hawaii’s island of Kauai, and one-twelfth of a centuries-old villa in Tuscany. Added together, the three fractional properties–which he takes turns using with other fractional owners–cost over $1 million.
Timbers Resorts, the leading developer and operator of luxury boutique properties around the globe, has opened the highly anticipated Timbers Kiawah Ocean Club & Residences, the first new residential development on Kiawah Island’s oceanfront in over 30 years.
Timbers Kauai - Ocean Club & Residences at Hōkūala, a new private residential club which opened its doors over the summer, is perhaps the most picturesque place to celebrate the season. Timbers Kauai provides each guest with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean bookended by the verdant Hau’pu mountain range with direct access to the shoreline.
In Lihue, adjacent to the island’s main airport, players find the magnificent Jack Nicklaus designed Ocean Course at Hokuala (formerly known as the Kiele Course at Kaua‘i Lagoons). The front nine is a big hitter’s dream with wide fairways and memorable holes, such as the par-3 fifth, where your tee shot must traverse a gaping canyon filled with towering mango trees.
But it’s the back nine where the scenery really kicks into high gear. In fact, Hokuala features the longest continuous stretch of oceanfront holes in Hawaii—Nos. 12 through 16—and they are at once extremely scenic and great fun to play.
