The wonder of living on a private island is something that tempts the many who seek out part adventure part separation from the rest of the world. Here at Crane Island, we are bringing that temptation to life and while we are set apart by just a moment, we are also deeply connected to our big sister island of Amelia Island, Florida.
Welcome to Crane Island. A place where the spirit of the Lowcountry is alive and well. Our architecture and character responds to our backyard, our way of life is about discovery and connecting to one another in a shared spirit of this great adventure called life. Come and explore our island hamlet and see for yourself what is being created here for 113 island citizens along the Intracoastal Waterway.

“We will protect the natural environment we are so fortunate to work with. That means saving trees.
We are committed to and will ensure that we get the Architecture right and that it must be timeless, inspiring, and come from the history of our beloved Amelia Island.
We believe that we can be better neighbors and celebrate the big and small moments in life. We believe the social fabric of our island hamlet begins on the porch and we can’t wait to hear the stories and tales of the day told on the porches of Crane Island.” Jack Healan, Jr – Founder
Partnerships are important to everything we do here at Crane Island. Our Architects & Design Professionals are making our Architectural Vision a reality. Our Builders are fully engaged to build not just homes but ensuring every detail is covered and executed. We have artisanal metal workers, painters, carpenters, and landscaping professionals that make everything work and they are inspiring to watch.
While we have a great team on the ground here, we also are so honored to be both a Southern Living™ and a Coastal Living™ Inspired Community. This partnership gives us great access to design professionals and like minded developers and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be the host location for the 2019 Southern Living™ Idea House.
