City GuideWhitemarsh Island
On the Atlantic Coast, few places can claim the beauty of Whitemarsh Island, nor the friendly Southern atmosphere it provides.
On the Atlantic Coast, few places can claim the beauty of Whitemarsh Island, nor the friendly Southern atmosphere it provides.

Whitemarsh Island is an island just 6.6 square miles in size, with a standard elevation of just three feet above sea level. A person could walk from the shore into the water and not even realize it! Almost 6,800 people live on Whitemarsh Island, making it a very populated area, especially considering large sections of the island are uninhabited. As it is located very close to Savannah, the communities on this waterlogged bit of land tend to consist of people who work in the city and commute each day.

Moving to Whitemarsh Island

Whitemarsh Island is a pretty affluent suburb of Savannah, which means isn't for everyone. However, it can be well worth it; there are quite a few homes in the area, many of which match the breathtaking natural beauty of the island with their own unique architecture. Someone planning to move to Whitemarsh will find themselves with plenty to choose from to keep them busy!

What's it going to cost me?

Whitemarsh Island can be more sought-after than other places, but is still absolutely beautiful. Property values have risen a lot in the past decade, and continue to rise, so investing in a home is a great choice! While the waterfront areas of the island are more desirable to live in, there are also parts of the island that are much more manageable.

There are apartments for rent at a reasonable rate should you prefer to do that rather than purchase. The month-to-month rent for one bedroom apartment is still within affordable limits, meaning you can definitely stay temporarily, while at the same time leaving the option open for a more permanent dwelling down the line.

What should I know about the area?

Because it's on the coast, Whitemarsh Island is at risk from severe weather during hurricane season. With that said, the climate is beautiful; while muggy and humid, the island is full of natural wonder. There are plenty of places to just get away from it all and enjoy being out of the city. Because it's close to Savannah, the majority of residents work in the city rather than on the island itself; while there is some commerce, most of it takes place on the mainland.

When should I start my search?

Start looking for a place to live at least a few months in advance. This will provide you with enough time to become acquainted with the different areas, as well as enough space to find an affordable home to invest in.

Do I need anything in particular?

Make sure you have a copy of your credit history, past rental agreements, proof of income, and any other documents that you feel might be relevant to finding an apartment. There are a number of mortgage companies on Whitemarsh Island to work with, but there are also independent landlords who might be more willing to negotiate prices. For instance, you could try to bargain for an all utilities paid apartment, which could help cut down on costs and simplify your monthly expenses.

Whitemarsh Island Neighborhoods

"Where do you live?"

"Oh, on Whitemarsh Island."

That's the basic conversation you might hear between two people. While the island isn't divided up into neighborhoods, there are a few apartment complexes that stand out to residents, including the acclaimed Viera at Whitemarsh. Locations closer to the highway demand more because of their convenience, as do homes that are near the shore. The middle of the island will have the most affordable rental housing.

Living in Whitemarsh Island

It should go without saying, but Whitemarsh Island is a southern town. Things are laid back here, even if it's attached to the third largest city in Georgia. However, there are a few places you will find residents lounging about nearly any time of year.

The first of those is Action Fishing Charters. As a seaside town, nothing says recreation quite like kicking back and casting a line into the water, trying your luck for the largest fish. Because much of the island is marshland, it's easy to find a secluded bit of land to fish in; just be careful not to get your line stuck!

There are a number of parks and community sites dotted around Whitemarsh Island, but these are best visited during spring and autumn. During summer, the humidity is almost unbearable.

Perhaps the area where Whitemarsh Island excels is in cuisine. There are more types of food than you can shake a stick at around these parts, and every bit of it is delicious. Besides the standard fast food fare, there are numerous locally owned restaurants that bring in a distinctly southern flair to all their dishes. For instance, Wiley's Championship Barbecue, Papa's Bar-B-Que & Seafood, and a few other places can fill any sort of craving you may have around the fourth of July. There are a number of ethnic cuisines as well, such as Kakki Restaurant, Yummy House, and Halapenos Mexican Grill. No matter what mood you're in or what you crave, you can find it on Whitemarsh.

There's not much in the way of public transportation, but then again, there doesn't need to be. Bicyclists are quite common on the island, but when it comes to getting to the mainland, it's best to have your own vehicle. No matter what your reason for moving to Whitemarsh Island may be, there is plenty to do, and the friendly folks who live here will welcome you with a smile.

Living in Whitemarsh Island
+

It should go without saying, but Whitemarsh Island is a southern town. Things are laid back here, even if it's attached to the third largest city in Georgia. However, there are a few places you will find residents lounging about nearly any time of year.

The first of those is Action Fishing Charters. As a seaside town, nothing says recreation quite like kicking back and casting a line into the water, trying your luck for the largest fish. Because much of the island is marshland, it's easy to find a secluded bit of land to fish in; just be careful not to get your line stuck!

There are a number of parks and community sites dotted around Whitemarsh Island, but these are best visited during spring and autumn. During summer, the humidity is almost unbearable.

Perhaps the area where Whitemarsh Island excels is in cuisine. There are more types of food than you can shake a stick at around these parts, and every bit of it is delicious. Besides the standard fast food fare, there are numerous locally owned restaurants that bring in a distinctly southern flair to all their dishes. For instance, Wiley's Championship Barbecue, Papa's Bar-B-Que & Seafood, and a few other places can fill any sort of craving you may have around the fourth of July. There are a number of ethnic cuisines as well, such as Kakki Restaurant, Yummy House, and Halapenos Mexican Grill. No matter what mood you're in or what you crave, you can find it on Whitemarsh.

There's not much in the way of public transportation, but then again, there doesn't need to be. Bicyclists are quite common on the island, but when it comes to getting to the mainland, it's best to have your own vehicle. No matter what your reason for moving to Whitemarsh Island may be, there is plenty to do, and the friendly folks who live here will welcome you with a smile.
