About Sandy Butler

Our family and friends from all over the Unites States and overseas have enjoyed this home celebrating birthdays, Memorial Day and 4th of July bar-b-ques, Easter Egg Hunts, Mother and Father's Day celebrations, baby showers ... New year's Eve, Oscar Night, Valentines Day, Saint Patrick's and Girl's weekend...It has been a source of creating wonderful memories!!! ... Come and create your own...

Sandy Butler purchased this house in 2000

Why Sandy Butler chose Lakes & Blackwater Rivers

Miralago is well located ... It is a house that provides all the entertainment your family will need...Lake Murray is an undiscovered gem, stretches 41 miles long, 650 miles of shore line. It is genuinely one-of-a-kind, where you can experience something that you can't experience anywhere else in the world, The Purple Martin Phenomenon, in June, July and August, close to a million Purple Martins come to nest on Bomb Island, they leave every morning to find food (mosquitos-each bird eats an average of 300 insects per day) and come back by the hundreds of thousands and swoop down to the Island to call it a night. (see video)

What makes this house unique

NO MOSQUITOS, Privacy, peaceful, lake views from every room, sunrises, wonderful full moons, laying on a hammock next to the water, sitting on the dock...A unique experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A group of us came from Atlanta, GA to get away from the city and enjoy the peaceful tranquility that Lake Murray has to offer. What a lovely surprise and sweet gesture it was to have a bottle of wine waiting and water. The house was spotless when we arrived, you never know what to expect when you rent a vacation home and this home was true to the pictures. We instantly checked into vacation mode. The lake view is incredible. Relaxing, floating in the water and grilling was a perfect way to begin our summer. We can't wait to make "Miralago" our new vacation spot every summer. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Amazing Home and a Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

The home is even more elegant and vast than any of the pictures could depict. Everything was clean and operational. From the beds and the game room to the over equipped kitchen and giant well lit dock, everything was above and beyond our expectations! Fantastic location with quiet and friendly neighbors. Plenty of room for the whole family. Whether you are grilling on the lower deck, playing cards or pool in the game room, or playing the baby grand piano with a glass of wine in the library... this home has something for everyone. The owner was very professional and easy to communicate with. We were only there for 30 minutes before we began to make plans to come back next year. 5 Stars NO QUESTION

We used this space for a girls weekend getaway! There was lots of space to comfortably accommodate everyone and the view of the lake was gorgeous! In need of a few modern updates but overall it was a fantastic place to relax for the weekend!

AMAZING!!!!

My wife and I have rented this home now twice and absolutely love it. The owner had bent over backwards to make us feel at home. This is the place you want to be if coming to the lake.
