Nestled among Live Oaks dripping with Spanish moss, Riverbend is a private gated upscale community for residents 55 and over. Located on the banks of the Okatie River, this community offers more solitude, larger home-sites, and a distinctive neighborhood setting. Thoreau once said that, “we can never have enough of nature.” That’s precisely what living at Riverbend provides. Life on the Okatie River allows residents to experience the beauty of the ever changing tidal basin and estuary where man and nature share the best of the Carolina Coast.
At the heart of Riverbend is the Lodge where one can enjoy nature at its best by relaxing on the expansive verandas with your morning coffee, aperitif and friends. Enjoy the stunning views of the River with fabulous sunrises and sunsets. Placed strategically right next to the Lodge is a large heated swimming pool and spa for your additional enjoyment.
Riverbend’s Deep-Water Dock, located directly behind the Lodge and on the Okatie River, also allows residents to experience fishing, crabbing, shrimping and kayaking on the river, which may not have been available to you in your previous community.
Founded by Del Webb shortly after the beginnings of Sun City Hilton Head, Riverbend is a separate, gated area with custom homes and some unique Del Webb estate homes, all on larger lots for upscale living. There are still some remaining home-site available for you to build your retirement dream home. Homeowners in Riverbend enjoy the benefit of low fees and have full access to the wonderful amenities of neighboring Sun City Hilton Head as part of their ownership. Golf, tennis, theater, fitness, bocce ball, dog park, walking trails, clubs and much, much more are only a golf cart ride away. There is truly something for everyone.
Riverbend is conveniently located within a short distance to Hilton Head Island activities and its world-famous beaches. Old Town Bluffton and Beaufort are only 20-30 minutes away, both fun communities to enjoy shopping, boating, cultural events and diverse dining. World renowned Charleston and Savannah are just a short drive from Riverbend and offer interesting day trips and weekend excursions.
