The City of Hardeeville, founded in 1911, is among the fastest-growing cities in the Lowcountry. Its population estimate grew 120 percent from 2010-2018, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The city’s population is expected to surpass 30,000 people in the next 10 years, officials say. It now encompasses 56 square miles and continues to grow.

The island is full of big projects, including the planned 103-acre mid-island community park. Touted by officials as one of the biggest initiatives in the island’s history, the proposed plans include an open-air market, an interactive water feature, an 18-hole disc golf course and a nature preserve.

Whether your rental property is a vacation villa by the ocean or a home for a family, professional management companies can provide peace of mind.
