When is a Good Time to Schedule a Coastal Vacation?

Some people believe that if they haven’t made their reservations for the coastal vacation rental where they want to stay at least six months in advance that they won’t find any vacancies. That’s just not true. We often have vacancies, including last minute ones, that we’re always happy to fill on a first come, first served basis. It is true that the earlier you make your reservations the more likely you are to get the exact place you want but at DeBordieu Rentals all of our accommodations are gorgeous as well as perfectly designed and furnished.

Starting New Holiday Traditions with DeBordieu Rentals

One of the most memorable events in the area that you surely won’t want to miss is Nights of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens. On December 4-6, 11-13, and 18-20, from 3 – 10 p.m., come watch as Brookgreen Gardens comes to life with the soft glow of more than 5,500 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights. Bring your family and walk the paths with a warm cup of cider, enjoy the sounds of hand bells ringing, carolers singing, and celebrate the season with family and friends. This annual event has become a popular holiday tradition that many residents and visitors alike look forward to every year.

Starting New Holiday Traditions with DeBordieu Rentals

Plan on having dinner while you’re here. An affordable dinner is being catered by Inlet Affairs of Murrells Inlet and is priced separately from museum admission. Check out their Nights of a Thousand Candles 2014 Dinner Menu. Dinner will be served from 3:30 to 9 p.m. each evening and will be served cafeteria-style in a large heated tent with inside seating. The menu features a variety of Lowcountry fare including seafood, BBQ, chicken bog and vegetarian options. Reservations are not accepted. (The Pavilion Restaurant will be closed during the event.) The Old Kitchen, located in the sculpture gardens, serves beverages and snacks. A beverage and snack tent, located next to the main entertainment tent, also offers beverages and snacks.

Suggestions for how to make your Nights of a Thousand Candles experience more enjoyable:

1. The best way to a void weekend crowds is to come on a Thursday evening.
2.   Arrive early (between 4 – 5 p.m.) and have time to see the candles being lit and map out where you would like to go. Dusk is the best time to take pictures. Tripods not allowed.
3. Wear warm clothes and comfortable shoes. This is not a drive-thru lights festival. You will be walking through the gardens.
4.   A limited number of adult and child strollers are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have mobility issues or difficulty standing for extended periods of time, please make appropriate arrangements.
5.  If possible, carpool with family and friends. You’ll be supporting our green initiative and helping to reduce the number of parking spaces required.
6. No smoking and no alcoholic beverages may be brought into the event.

We look forward to hearing from you before the holidays and know you’ll have a pleasurable time at Brookgreen Gardens while you’re here. All of us at DeBordieu Rentals want to wish you and yours a very happy holiday season!

DeBordieu Golf Course Completes Renovations

We are proud to announce the reopening of our DeBordieu Club. Many changes were made during this renovation process and we invite you to play and experience the improvements for yourself. The course re-opened on September 13th and we have heard nothing but positive feedback in the weeks since its reopening. These glowing responses make us here happy to know that the work we put into it was truly worth-while.

This 18-hole, Pete and P.B. Dye course, underwent a total resurfacing. From Celebration Bermudagrass in the roughs and fairways to MiniVerde on the greens, our staff spared no expense in acquiring the conditions our golfers require of a championship course. In addition, DeBordieu Club has also replaced every bunker with new sand as well as created larger and several new tee options totaling six.

Since 1987, DeBordieu Club has been a staple of the DeBordieu community. This 7,000 plus yard course continues to feature some of the most majestic holes enveloping the natural surrounding beauty of the community itself. If your rental home has a Golf or Sports membership, we invite you to play and experience our new additions.


Our professional staff would be glad to assist you. Call the shop at 843-527-6000 and inquire about priveldges, fees, hours and instructional programs.

Helping the Loggerhead Sea Turtles

If you’ve always wanted to do your part in helping out the loggerhead sea turtles on our beaches this is your opportunity. The South Carolina United Turtle Enthusiasts (SCUTE) group is just one of 30 different projects made up of volunteers offering protection to the sea turtles along the South Carolina coastline while they nest from May through October each year. All of these projects are overseen by the SC Department of Natural Resources.

Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Loggerhead Sea TurtleSince early in 1980 the SCUTE group has covered an area 60 miles long that extends from North Myrtle Beach to the North Inlet in Georgetown County. Because of these efforts, the numbers of sea turtle nests have been increasing steadily, especially over the past four years. Close to half of the nests along this region of the coastline are found on the DeBordieu and Hobcaw beaches. Last year alone we had 108 nests along our stretch of beachfront, setting a new record for us. The previous record was set in 1995 with a total of 75 nests.

Each day at sunrise during nesting season volunteers walk the beaches looking for the large turtle tracks leading from the ocean to the dunes and back. When tracks are found, clues are used to determine the location of the nesting area. Using pool cues, volunteers carefully probe the sand to locate the soft area of the egg chamber. An average nest of 120 ping-pong ball size eggs may need to be moved if the clutch is laid in an unsafe place such as below the spring tide line or in a high foot traffic area. Nests are protected with a plastic mesh, staked to protect it from predators and a sign is posted with the nesting date.

Baby Loggerhead Sea TurtleWhile monitoring the nests, volunteers begin to look for a depression in the nest at about 50 days of incubation indicating the start of hatching activity. When a nest hatches, usually between 55-60 days, hatchlings make a mad dash to the ocean following the fluorescence of the waves. It is important during this time that they are not lead astray by onshore lighting.

Following the successful completion of a hatch, we are required by SCDNR to wait 3 nights before conducting a nest inventory so that all hatchlings have a chance to exit the nest. At the inventory, the nest contents are dug out and data is recorded and sent to SCDNR. Occasionally live hatchlings, unsuccessful at emerging on their own, are found in the nest. Volunteers put the hatchlings on the beach, let them crawl to the ocean and ‘imprint’. At maturity, 25-30 years, female loggerheads will generally return to the beach of their birth to nest. However, recent DNA studies show some turtles will nest many miles from where they hatched.

If you would like more information about how you can help the loggerhead sea turtles please visit the DeBordieu Hobcaw SCUTE website.

Update:

We’ve got news on the turtles! Check out this message we got from members of the SCUTE:

Dear Volunteers – My friend, Carter, walked the Middle with me this morning and knew DEB03 north of WW#3 was likely to hatch tonight. About 4:30 she and her husband checked the nest and she called to say there were turtles in the top! When I got to the nest there were about 8 turtles down in the hole. I put my backpack behind the mesh to shade the hole. Well….they started moving and…well….watch the video! -Betsy
