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 Gilbert

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

Perfect home for larger groups!

  • 5 of 5

We coordinated a ladies weekend with 7 or us from around the country, and this house/location was perfect! I would consider this home for large family gatherings as well because of the expanded space available and all of the entertaining amenities available. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed (except maybe for a larger size fry pan) which included serving dishes for many! You could easily prepare meals in this kitchen for 12-15 people. (AND there are 2 ovens!!!!)

We enjoyed the patio area out back (beautiful view!!!) and the game room areas downstairs for playing pool and hanging out in the evenings.

The house was extremely clean and comfortable. Beds and pillows were great, and plenty of towels for this crew.

Sandy was a terrific host and answered all questions via text in less than 10 minutes. She was very accommodating with our schedule and needs. Thank you Sandy!

The only recommendation we have (which is incredibly minor!) is for hand soap to be included in each bathroom. It was our oversight since it was in the initial instructions to us, but with multiple bathrooms, it would be an extremely convenient item to provide the guests.

Spectacular lake front villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home to Philly from an incredible vacation at Miralago! Sandi was so hospitable to us! The lake home is exquisite! We rented a boat from a nearby marina and enjoyed the views from the Lake! The house is very clean and very confortable! We felt like we were in Europe! We will always try to stay at Miralago every time we visit Columbia!! Thank you very much for sharing your gorgeous home with us!
