The homes range from 300k-2 mil +, and the fact that it is gated adds to the value. The amenities are great, pools, restaurants/clubhouses, 6 award-winning golf courses, and 2 marinas. Plus over 100 miles of walking/golf cart trails.

Living on Skidaway Island is a very distinct kind of lifestyle. It is a well-off community, so naturally it is a safe and well maintained place to live. The community has quite the older crowd, so nightlife and teenage shenanigans are very limited. I would love to see more diversity here. Too many grumpy old white men.
For coastal area, weather is great.
