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

  • 5 of 5

Property is great for family groups. Plenty of beds, baths and space for indoor activities. The house is well stocked foe cooking and eating. We all enjoyed the upstairs porch for eating and just admiring the water and the relaxing atmosphere. Owner was fantastic about replacing the broken dock ladder so we could enjoy our time in the water. Would highly recommend for a peaceful vacation on the water.

Beautiful home , great location and plenty of room!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was nice and spread out. Plenty of room for everyone. The views are wonderful and the lake was not too busy with boat traffic. The cement walkout was convenient as well as the boat ramp. I will advise if you are bringing several of your own boats - parking can be difficult. However there is Larry Coon's landing - right down the road. I also need to say that the water can get really rough out on the dock - since it is on the main lake. It beat the heck out of our 2 boats on our last full day. Just a warning for you - if you bring a boat. 😉? we couldn't have asked for a better place.

Incredible Views!

  • 4 of 5

Large beautiful home allowed our family to enjoy each other & retreat to own space as needed. Bald eagle fly over only 50 ft away. Osprey nesting & fishing nearby. And the purple martins on bomber island are amazing. Plan on cooking or driving into Lexington for good food. Grocery store is 15 minute drive. Restful, relaxing & recuperative vacation.
