  • It's technically an island, but you will feel anything but isolated if you choose to make your home in Wilmington Island, GA. It is part and parcel of the surrounding marshland, the neighboring islands and the greater Savannah area. Primarily quiet and residential, it is a special kind of place, with plenty of rivers and streams for fishing, and its own weekend Farmers Market. But for excitement, nightlife, and big-city treats, you'll have to leave your little island paradise. Luckily, that's easy.

Top 6 Reasons to Live in Wilmington Island, GA

  • Close to the water! Bounded by the Wilmington and Bull Rivers and numerous creeks and tributaries, chances are that you'll always have water views, no matter where you live. That means you can get to a boat quickly to fish, enjoy a go-nowhere ride or head for salt water whenever the weather's clear and the spirit moves you. That means you'll also have fresh fish and seafood almost anytime you want, or you can eat fresh catch and buy fresh shrimp from Scuba Steve's Seafood.
  • Living is easy! Walk around your neighborhood, meet friends for a drink at The Crow Bar or order takeout there as you head for a boat trip up the River. Historic Savannah is only about 10 minutes away by car, but you'll also find historic churches and homes on the island, as well as convenient shopping at The Islands Mall.
  • You may not want to leave! With the feeling and the amenities of a true "small town," Wilmington Island is more than a place to lay your head. Residents frequent the local Ace Hardware for their home repair needs, and enjoy stopping at Molly McGuire's for a great hamburger on the way home.
  • Play golf or play at the beach! Tee off at Wilmington Island Club for an afternoon of golf on a great course, and then stay for dinner at the restaurant. If you live at Wilmington Plantation Condos right next door, it can also be just as convenient to hop into a boat at the adjacent marina and head off for an afternoon at a deserted beach.
  • A variety of households! Locating rent to own houses on Wilmington Island requires some time and some legwork. A townhome or condo may be a great option. Home prices on Wilmington Island have appreciated almost 7 percent over the past year, and listing prices are currently about 30 percent higher than the greater Savannah average. You will find modern apartments conveniently located amid towering trees and landscaped grounds in complexes like The Oaks and Buccaneer Trace.
  • Check out available rental homes! Rental homes in this community are a good way to try it on for size. Because a number of condos are used as vacation units, you might even find one fully furnished and equipped. Look for your permanent home while enjoying all the local benefits. After a busy day of house hunting, visit Relax and Rejuvenate, a day spa right in the heart of the island. Then, go on to dinner at nearby Savannahs Oyster House.
