About Sally

Hello My name is Sally Germer. I'm not originally from the south, but I got here as quick as I could. I was born and raised in St. Louis and moved here 14 years ago.

I am a Realtor, Licensed Residental Contractor, Professional Stager and have 2 years of Interior Design Education.

Sally purchased this house in 2002

Why Sally chose Port Royal

I built this Duplex in 2002 and originally rented this side long term. I turned it into the Palmetto Moon Cottage in 2006

What makes this house unique

I've stayed in my Palmetto Moon Cottage, after I turned it into a Vacation home, as I wanted to see if it had everything a guest could need. I live next door when it is not rented. I personally take care of all aspects of this Vacation Home and I believe it shows in all the small details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sally

We can not thank you enough for all that you have done for us!

We loved our stay at the Sunrise Moon Cottage. The view was beautiful. I loved cooking dinner while watching the water and boat go by. The Sunrise each morning was a great way to start the day. The place was cozy and the location perfect especially for my Navy Hospital corpsman. He was less than 2 min away. He was even able to surprise us for lunch a couple of times, because of the location. The day before departure, I became quite ill and was put in the ICU in the hospital. You cam to our rescue without hesitation and offered this cottage to us for an overnight stay. We cannot thank you enough for your kindness, compassion and souther hospitality. Your cottages are beautiful, very comfortable, well appointed and in a perfect location. Thank you for helping us military families.

Sally, you were wonderful to rent from, very welcoming. I would LOVE to rent your home again, this time for pure vacation. We were there for my son's Parris Island graduation, stayed all week. Proximity to the Island was 5 minutes or less. You could walk or drive over to Sands Beach in Port Royal and literally see the Island from that view point. Everything about Sally's home was great - the location made it central to any and everything you would want to do in the area!! 5 stars Sally and THANK YOU AGAIN for allowing us to utilize your home! The Ashleys!

PI Bootcamp Graduation Week

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the Palmetto Moon Cottage and could not have been happier. This unit was the cleanest, best stocked house we have ever rented. The owner was gracious and made us feel welcome. It was beautifully decorated, and was in a quiet part of town that was very close to Parris Island. I absolutely loved the house.

Annual Golf Trip to Parris Island

  • 5 of 5

Each year myself and a few other retired Marines get together for an annual golf trip to Parris Island. We usually all rent a hotel in town but this year two of us rented the Palmetto Moon Cottage, and we are glad we did. It was a great cozy home in a quiet and quaint area of Port Royal. It was so nice being able to kick back and relax after a day of golf. And if we didn’t want to go out to eat, we utilized the kitchen, saving time and money. Next year we will have to rent the Carolina Moon Cottage, because the other guys saw what the missed out on and we will need the bigger house. It was a great price, just a little more than the Days Inn per person we stayed at, but SO MUCH BETTER!! No more hotels on our trip to Port Royal. I would recommend this for a guys or lady’s weekend, and definitely for a recruit graduation weekend. See ya next year!

Another wonderful stay!!

We have stayed in this particular home many times over the last several years. The home is very clean and well maintained and we just love the neighborhood. The property owner has the home decorated beautifully! Lord willing, we will return for more years to come.

Spent Easter weekend here!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six loved this home. The neighborhood is adorable. We had a great time walking down to Sands Beach and hiking the boardwalk up to the observation deck. The neighborhood is very quiet and felt completely safe. The home is very clean (and this is a must for me). The kitchen is well-stocked and we ate several meals here over the four nights and five days we stayed. The beds and bedding are very comfortable. We gave my daughter and son-in-law the master suite and bath because there is a California king bed and he is 6'4". I slept in the queen size bed with one small child and my hubby slept on the sleeper sofa with the other child. We were all very comfortable. The home comes with a washer and dryer which I love so I don't have to pack as much or take home dirty laundry. I highly recommend the location which is very close to Parris Island and Beaufort. The Marines museum at Parris Island is free and wonderful. Beaufort is my favorite southern town and is only a few minutes away. The horse and buggy tour through the historic district is wonderful. We spent a few hours at Hunting Island on the beach looking for starfish and climbed the lighthouse (bring bug spray) and is it lovely. The Chapel of Ease ruins on St. Helena Island are fascinating. I'd love to stay in this home again!
