What is the Kiawah Island Community Association and What do they do?

  • About KICA

Upon purchase of your property, you will become a member of the Kiawah Island Community Association (KICA). The KICA administration and board offer recreational, educational, and social programs as well as private events at The Sandcastle. Read on to learn more about the benefits of your KICA membership.

  • Safety & Security

The entire island of Kiawah benefits from 24/7 security from KICA. The main gate of Kiawah is owned and operated by the homeowners association and is staffed 24 hours a day.

Not only does the staff (community service advisors) manage access to the island, they also aid residents in matters of wildlife issues, flood awareness, traffic control, and more. When Hurricane Irma approached the island in 2017, KICA ensured that residents and visitors alike were prepared well in advance and armed with the latest updates.

  • Island Maintenance

It’s no secret that Kiawah Island is one of the most beautifully preserved islands in the Southeast, and there is a reason for it!

KICA looks after nearly 1,000-acres of common residential and parkway land on the island. This ensures that parks, lakes, streets, gutters, and leisure trails remain in excellent condition year-round, and that property values are maintained.

The Sandcastle on Kiawah & Beachwalker Center

The recently renovated, iconic property owners "club house" on Kiawah is known as The Sandcastle. Here you will find oceanside pools, seasonal bar and grill, fitness facilities and special events to enjoy with family and personal guests.

The Sandcastle was completely remodeled (inside) in 2018, along with the addition of an oceanfront infinity pool.

The brand new oceanfront pool is restricted to those ages 18 and older and is privately situated away from the family pools for pleasant relaxation. Don't forget to check out the food and drink menu!

Beachwalker Center acts as a business hub for Kiawah Island homeowners. The administrative building offers notary services, wi-fi and workstations with desktop computers, printing and fax services for property owners. The location of Beachwalker Center is 23 Beachwalker Drive.
