About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Outdoor Showers, Sleeps 12

Once through the private gates, wind your way through the dense pine forest and over the salt marsh bridge, and marvel at the quiet beauty of coastal South Carolina's Low Country. Watch for snowy egrets, great blue herons, alligators and turtles on the creek banks. Plenty of parking for your extended family when you arrive at our large, comfortable house. Step out onto the screened-in porch and enjoy the cool breeze as you take in the ever-captivating view of the Atlantic Ocean. Grab your towel and raid our 'beach-toy' closet for beach chairs, boogie boards, and lots of playthings for the kids.

After a relaxing swim and a dig in the sand, take a walk south down the beach to the end of the houses and into the Baruch Foundation's Hobcaw Barony. Undeveloped and preserved for perpetuity, witness this unparalleled sanctuary used by Clemson, USC, and other institutions for important ecological research.

In the evening, take advantage of our Beach Club Membership privileges: elegant dining with a spectacular view at the Beach Club; casual dining at the Blue Heron Beach grill; or meet new friends at the fabulous beachfront Cabana Bar. You are also welcome to lounge and swim at the sparkling Beach Club pool. Tennis and Golf are also available with applicable fees. Beyond our gates, excellent dining and shopping are minutes away at Pawley's Island, or at the historic Port of Georgetown along the lovely waterfront boardwalk. Afterwards, return to the splendid isolation of the Lemmon House at DeBordieu Colony, SC. We're so happy to share this experience with you!

About Sally Lemmon Nouri

Siblings Jane, Sally and Bill manage the Lemmon Family House.

Sally Lemmon Nouri purchased this house in 1977

Why Sally Lemmon Nouri chose Debordieu Colony

Born & raised in rural South Carolina, our father moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University Medical Shool and later developed a successful surgical practice. Every summer Dad returned to SC with his growing family to vacation on the beach along the Grand Strand. In 1970, he purchased a beachfront lot as a charter member of DeBordieu Colony when the only residents for miles in any direction were pelicans, osprey, wild boar, deer, alligators and the rest of the natives of the unique coastal and estuary ecosystems of the Lowcountry. Today there are human neighbors as well, but DeBordieu is devoted to preserving hundreds of undeveloped acres as important habitat for SC wildlife.

What makes this house unique

*Private Gated Community *Private access to wide, beautiful sandy beach *Enjoy your coffee on the private deck on the dunes while watching a spectacular sunrise over the Atlantic ocean *Seclusion: it's 4 miles from the gate on Hwy. 17 to our beachfront house Walk down the beach to Hobcaw Barony-- an important undeveloped, protected nature preserve including marsh, estuary and beach * Unparallel access to protected estuary, nature paths, bird-watching, wildlife viewing, shell collecting-- even witness hatchling sea turtles scamper from their nests in the dunes down the beach and into the ocean!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at the Lemmon House so much! It is very homey, nicely furnished and so clean! Everyone was impressed with the floor plan. Plenty of family space, a big kitchen and very private bedrooms. Plus that huge screened porch!

We hope to rent again next fall.

Thanks for sharing your home.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Lemmon house and we plan to make it a regular yearly event. The house is perfect for our family; the way it's laid out, everyone has some privacy. The ocean is just a few steps away and the screened in porch is divine! DeBordieu is breathtaking. We are Carolina natives and love the low country but "Debbie-Doo" is like another world. We also love that we can include our 4-legged family members! Sally was very attentive and communicative. Can't wait til next year!!!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house so much the first time we visited two years ago that we signed up again this year for our biennial family reunion beach vacation. The layout of the house is great for multiple family groups, with good space for all. The kitchen is well laid out and very well stocked. The fact that it is dog friendly is a strong added bonus. The Lemmon sisters were most cordial and helpful before and during our stay. The guest Club membership was easy to use, and was very helpful for the golfers in our group. Thank you so much for sharing your house with us.

A breath of fresh air!

  • 5 of 5

The Lemmon House was perfect for our multi generational family. It was clean, spacious, well furnished and the kitchen was well stocked with staples. We were pleasantly surprised with several availabilities: an extra roll of toilet paper in each bath, trash bags provided, etc. Our grandchildren LOVED the upstairs room, the children were quite comfortable on the main floor, and my husband and I were very pleased with our ground level private suite. The screened front porch with its' wonderful rockers made the home "worth the price of admission" in itself. We enjoyed the beach, the pool, the wildlife, and the week in general. Sally and Jane were very helpful and easy to work with. We would definitely rent this property again.

Fantastic dog-friendly beach house

  • 5 of 5

This 5-bedroom beachfront house in the DeBordieu Colony was truly first class. The house sleeps 12 comfortably, and is pet friendly. The kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, glasses, coffee mugs and utensils. There is a large refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen, with a second refrigerator/freezer in the laundry room. There is a large washer and dryer in the downstairs laundry room. Parking off street is abundant. There is a screened porch facing the ocean, with a private boardwalk to the beach. There is a shower on the boardwalk, in addition to an enclosed outdoor shower on the lower level. The house includes a guest membership to the DeBordieu club, which allows access to the golf, tennis and beach club facilities. The two canine members of our family thoroughly enjoyed the porch and the numerous walks and runs on the beach and in the surf.

"Wonderful in August, Great anytime"

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful week @ Debordieu @ the Lemmon House. Multigenerational family vacationing together and loving every minute. We love Debordieu and love all it has to offer so we bring everything we need to relax, eat and soak up the sun. The Lemmon House was a great place for all of us to make more wonderful memories. Thank you so much for sharing your beach home with us. We will return.

* The Lemmon House owners are the BEST I have worked with.
