Default Neither.

They are both nice, But Daniel Island I think is over priced plus when the wind blows a certain way you will often have soot on your houses and cars from the paper plant. It doesnt smell very nice either. Park West/Dunes West are nice but they are on the wrong side of HWY. 17. You want to be on the other side. Much less traffic. I live in Hamlin Plantation which is beautiful. Much closer to the beaches, shopping and restaurants. Much less traffic. I have lived in 2 houses here and wouldnt consider anywhere else. There are 4 distinct neighborhoods to choose from, and its much smaller and more personal than the others. We moved from Buffalo NY 7 years ago and never regretted it... You will love the taxes and the year around activities. Please be prepared for the heat though. Good Luck

Yeah I would choose Hamlin over Daniel Island and Park West -- it's a much better location.

I know Park West has many amenitities but it is so far from the city and the beaches. Hamlin isn't that far to Town Center, closer to the beaches and it is easier to get into the city.

Did notice on my last trip though that Rifle Range can get a bit hairy on A Friday afternoon -- it wasn't even tourist season.

Hamlin Plantation is beautiful, but a bit far out in Mt. Pleasant. To be closer to downtown, beaches, and still stay in an affordable area, I recommend Seaside Farms and Sweetgrass. They are right off of the Isle of Palms Connector (5 minutes from Isle of Palms beaches), right around the corner from the Mt. Pleasant towne center, and only 10 minutes to downtown Charleston. Homes in these neighborhoods start in the high $200's. Feel free to contact me for more advice, or for active properties for sale in Charleston. I am happy to help with your relocation!

Many folks I know who live on Daniels Island LOVE IT BUT......their kids all come to Mount Pleasant for sporting activities and go to private schools......

School system in Mount Pleasant is amazing.......

Daniel Island's school system is relative new and growing so may be fine for elementary level but not sure middle school and high school are going to be the equivalent of Mount Pleasant schools for a while.

I would choose Park West over Hamlin. Hamlin might be closer to the ocean (by less then 4 miles or so) but it is out by itself. No walk, bike ride, golf cart, etc. to stores, restaurants, etc. Always had to get in the car to go anywhere, same as when I lived in Rivertowne. Had to get in the car to go get anything. Became easier when Harris Teeter opened but still...in the car to go get anything.

I've been driving that Rifle Range route from Bowman to Porchers Bluff. Hamlin is not so far out there really (and even I thought it was). It is very close to the Kohls/Walmart shopping etc...and all the Park West amenities...it's closer to the high school.......and not too far from the beach. It's relative easy access to Rifle Range/IOP/Hungry Neck means there is quick access to 526, Chuck Dawley, etc......
