Outdoor amenities at The Haven include walking and biking trails, tennis courts, and a resort-style swimming pool.

Home to rolling green golf courses, warm seaside breezes, breathtaking ocean views, and over 100 community clubs, The Haven at Hilton Head is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and sought-after retirement communities in South Carolina.


The Haven in Bluffton, South Carolina is a Del Webb active adult community that is uniquely more intimate than its neighbor, Sun City Hilton Head. The Haven has 12 single-family, ranch-style floor plans available that range in size from 1,590 to 2,637 square feet.

Four of the open floor plans have optional second-floor lofts. The homes with optional lofts feature an additional loft area, bedroom, and bathroom. The beautiful setting provides lagoon and wooded home sites available on large quarter- and half-acre lots.

The Haven attracts buyers who desire its many acres of protected land and spacious home sites. It provides a blend of seclusion and convenience to shopping, restaurants, and local culture. The Haven is planned to coexist with the surrounding environment that contains majestic live oaks and towering pine forests. The area has extensive wildlife including bald eagles, deer, marsh rabbits, and turtles. House exteriors of stucco, wood, and cultured stone harmonize with the natural setting.


A beautiful clubhouse and the area that surrounds it contains a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a ballroom, card, hobby and craft rooms, and bocce ball, pickleball and tennis courts. The large resort-style pool has a sandy beach entrance. Walking and biking trails stretch throughout the community in parks and natural areas and extend into the larger, all-ages, planned New Riverside section of Bluffton. The community provides a dog park for its many pet owners.


Over 40 golf courses are available in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island and, most importantly, residents of this South Carolina retirement community have special discounts at four of the neighboring golf courses. Kayaking, boating, and fishing are available in local rivers, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Atlantic Ocean.

The Haven is surrounded by shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. The proposed Towne Centre at New Riverside is two miles away and Berkeley Place, which includes restaurants, shops, and a movie theater, is just four miles away. The Tanger Outlet Malls, several big-box stores, and other retail stores and restaurants are ten miles from the community. 

The Haven is located 15 miles from the famous Hilton Head Island and is next to the exceptional Palmetto Bluff. This wonder of nature has been managed for timber, agriculture, and wildlife for hundreds of years to maximize the diversity of the landscape and wildlife. Residents and visitors have the opportunity to spend time in nature preserves, interpretive trails, and wetlands.

For retirees who desire an intimate active adult community in the Hilton Head area, The Haven is definitely worth a look.
