Welcome


Drop By the Dewees Island Huyler House – Nov 22nd

You are Invited to
Drop By the Dewees Island Huyler House
Sunday, November 22nd
3:30pm – 5:30pm 

Charleston County’s has granted Dewees Island the right to reopen our Huyler Suites for rentals to owners, their families and guests.  Cause for celebration!

The doors and windows of the Huyler House will be open on Sunday the 22nd, welcoming owners to meander along the walkways, into the suites and through the Great Room.  

A homecoming of sorts!

We are personally inviting the six new Dewees families to encourage them to Drop By to say Hello to neighbors and friends. Please join us for a very casual meet and greet!  

A special reminder to our Lot Owners:  your presence is desired on November 22nd, as well as throughout all of the year! We hope you will join us to gain a sense of who this community truly is. It will also be a great time to preview the space in each suite as you make plans to use your Lot Owners Only Benefit:  14 complimentary Nights on Dewees.  Contact Chantal for more information on reservations. 

Catherine Weeks, our Interim Manager and Chantal Alexander, Administrative Assistant, have given the suites a fresh face to welcome the community in comfort to our charming Guest House.  You will be proud of our community asset—the hub of island activity.  

Second only to The Beach!  That is the glue that really holds all of us together.  A story for another time…..

For a leisurely Sunday afternoon outing, CLICK HERE to tell us a good time for you to drop by. We will enjoy the grounds, porches, walkways as we catch-up with friends and neighbors!

Look for you on the grounds of the Huyler House on November 22nd!

Dewees Island Launches Phase 1 of NorthStar Software

Dear Owners,

We are excited to launch the first phase of our new software program, NorthStar. NorthStar’s capabilities will continue to expand and evolve while the site is “under construction”. The two pieces we will begin with are the  account management portal  and  new ferry terminal.  NorthStar will be our new system for entering guests, viewing your account, and paying invoices directly from the portal. In the future, we will also have a new website, community calendar, app, and much more! All official Dewees Island POA and DUC communications will ultimately be distributed through this system as well.   

By the end of this week, owners will have received login credentials and comprehensive instructions on how to navigate the new site. We are also distributing invoices for the  FY21 annual POA assessments and DUC assessments, which are posted to the primary member’s account (person who receives bills). The POA and DUC appreciates your prompt payment for the annual assessments.

We are committed to provide a smooth transition for our community members as we transfer to the new software. To assist our owners with the new program, we will host a virtual Navigating NorthStar Tutorial and Q&A session on Friday, November 6 at 10:00am. In the meantime,  please do not hesitate to contact Chantal to set up a one-on-one meeting or phone call if you have questions or need assistance with your member account. Chantal can be reached at chantal@deweesislandsc.com or 843.568.3992. Email is the preferred method of communication during this transition.

Lastly, please be patient with us! This is a significant conversion, and we are rolling out the conversion in phases. We will continue to keep our owners informed of changes and subsequent phases.

Dear Dewees Owners,

I would like to inform you that Ellen Dempsey has tendered her resignation as Controller for Dewees Island POA and Dewees Utility Corp. Although Ellen’s last date of full time employment is October 31, she has offered to assist with the transition as a subcontractor as we finalize arrangements to have the controller position filled at the start of November.

I sincerely thank Ellen for her dedicated service during the last year and half and wish her the best with her future endeavors.

Sincerely,
