Full Moon Cottage
We had a wonderful stay at your Full Moon Cottage and it really did feel like home away from home. Thank you for all the amenities of home and for the really lovely decorating you have done. I would recommend this to the family of any Marine family as it makes the entire stay, from meals to coordinating transportation so much easier. My family kept asking “How did you think of this??” Thank you for the chocolates and for having everything ‘ready to go” when we walked in the door. I personally loved the kitchen and found it perfect for preparing our pasta feast for our post-graduation buffet. This was far superior to going out to eat and trying to find a restaurant with reservations for umpteen people. We also appreciated the notebook about Beaufort with the Marine base map on the front. That was a great help. And we loved being 5 minutes from the gate and agreed this was “as good as it gets.” I especially enjoyed the neighbor, Bertis Parker who walked up wearing his Rotary shirt. I am a Rotarian too and greeted him as such so he hugged me right away and we had much to talk about. He was so very nice to us and to our son. I think a great selling point is how close the house is to the Bi-lo, a gas station, barbeque and the various shops including the Corps Store. I should have asked you about that in advance but Bi-lo was wonderful. We also found Wal-Mart down the other way which was great. This cottage is really well situated for amenities that we needed. Anyway, thank you so much for everything and for the special effort you have obviously made to make this a comfortable, relaxing place to stay. Warmest regards, – Pat Donahue

A personal note of thanks from my family. We loved your home but were so happy to be leaving with our new Marine. We brought Tom back to the house so he could change into traveling clothes, and very appreciative! Our days were so full, we did not get out too much to explore Port Royal or the surrounding area. But if Tom gets order to Beaufort Air Station, I can see myself coming back with my husband and spending more time at your cottage, rather than a hotel. I especially thought your visit was the sweetest touch and thank you so much for the paper. You found us at the perfect time and by the way, I rocked the Scrabble game and beat the young smart ones! You left no detail out in the way of amenities and it was truly a “RED DOOR” Welcome! I will be mentioning your southern hospitality to others that are looking for a very charming home experience instead of a hotel while in the Beaufort area. I am in the Travel and Meeting Industry and always recommending places I have been and stayed in. Thanks again for making our stay a memorable one! – Vicki

Palmetto Moon Cottage
We have again enjoyed a wonderful restful week in Port Royal! The cottage gave us a place to enjoy our Marine’s company. Even though he will be discharged from the Corp in September, my husband and I hope to come back to Port Royal as we love this town. I cannot say enough about your hospitality. As a repeat “Red Door Renter” I have always found your cottages a fabulous place to stay! Thank you for making cottage vacationing a possibility – The Harvey Family, Capon Bridge, WV

Your home couldn’t be more perfect. We lived in Beaufort for 5 years and coming to your home made the years since disappear. Thank you for the personal touches that made it so easy to call this cottage home. We will definitely be staying with you on our return trips. PS Thank you for your devotion to the children of the Low Country – The DeMar Family Johnson City, TN

Sally Thanks so much for offering your beautiful home. It is everything we could have hoped and then some. It was great for families that live on opposite sides of the east coast to share some fun together. All the extra touches, were extras that made us feel welcome. – The LaMarches

Full Moon Cottage
Hi Sally, THANK YOU SOOOO Much for your hospitality we received 4/6- 4/12. The house was perfect for our group of USMC Grad Family. We enjoyed 4 great days before graduation. And was perfect for our large group to relax and enjoy with our Marine before all had to depart in different directions after Grad. Everything about the house was great for us including being able to hear training at PI. Was the perfect touch for Marine families to hear and see the flares at night. You have really put a lot of effort into making your guest comfortable and at home. Southern hospitality is all we have heard about. So glad w e stayed there. Unfortunately we don’t plan on visiting again anytime soon as our Marine has been shipped to San Diego CA. but will be happy to recommend to anyone. Location, accommodations and endless amenities were superb. From 2 families in New England Hospitality business- We rated it a 10. Thanks again- The Millers and Becklers

Sunrise Moon Cottage
Sally. I can’t tell you how wonderful it’s been staying here in your condo by the water. Traveling 12 hours from Ohio to South Carolina with a 2 1/2 year old can be difficult in and of itself. Finding a safe, fun and well equipped place to stay is next to impossible. However, your place provided all the comforts of home and made this trip truly enjoyable. Being able to have food on hand and wash clothes as needed was a lifesaver with a toddler! What a blessing is was to find your place. Things were so comfy and cozy, that in no time my son was asking if it was time to “going back to our house” at the end of each day’s events. As for my husband and I, we couldn’t believe how conveniently located it was to both local stores and to Parris Island (a life saver when we had to be on base at 6:15 am for the motivational run!) We can’t thank you enough for your generous hospitality and we definitely plan on coming back to visit in the near future. Please fell fee to use us as a reference. With great Blessings to you, Lavonne, Rob and Jacob Speicher

Dear sally, The southern hospitality that you display in your beautiful home away from home could not be surpassed. We all had a fantastic time here for the boot camp graduation. The marines were all told that they would remember Parris island and we will too with such good memories. Thank you very much for providing all the comforts we could want. Sincerely, The Newland Family

Carolina Moon Cottage
Dear Sally, What a joy it has been for our family to be guests in your lovely home, which is so beautifully and tastefully decorated. Your attentions to so many details for comfort, shows you are truly a kind, thoughtful and gracious hostess. We felt so much at home and each time upon returning there was a sense of belonging and joy. Being so close to Parris island was a blessing it took only a short time to drive there. You can be certain that we’ll recommend you to relations and friends who wish to visit this area. Thank you and may god bless you – The Stott Family

Palmetto Moon Cottage
Sally, Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful place for us to come home to, while attending our son’s graduation. You truly have thought of everything. Because of that, our stay here was extra special. I will be sure to suggest red door rentals to others on the usmc parent message board. Thanks again K. Schrantz Pittsburgh, PA

Carolina Moon Cottage
Sally Wow! We had a wonderful time at your home. It was decorated so beautifully and my wife made me take many, many pictures. Now my “honey-do” list is longer but I am okay with that. It was nice to have the accommodations so close to the base. And you were right, the extra day made for a much more relaxing trip. It gave our new marine and us time to unwind after family day and graduation. Also a chance to take in the sights. Beaufort and the surrounding areas are just beautiful. We went to the beach, the lighthouse and just wandered but it was so nice to go back to the house to relax and eat a home cooked meal. The attention to detail was second to none. I mean how many people would even think about a grocery store discount card and the welcome sign was great. Upon arrival everyone was running from room to room, then yelling “come see this room”, “come look at this”. We have told everyone about our son’s graduation but also about the wonderful home in which we stayed. You will forever be a part of our memories. I will go to your website and put in our comments from our stay. We want everyone to know that red door rentals is truly “home away from home” Thank you so very much. Kell Stott ( proud father of pfc Kellous Stott USMC) Ps. I would have sent this sooner but after a week out of the office i am trying to get caught up with piles of work.

Wow this house is amazing and oh so comfortable!

We drove from cincinnati-14 hours. What a surprise–this cottage was a wonderful surprise!! Everything we needed was here and the restaurants were marvelous. Very charming place- port royal looks beautiful decorated for the holidays! We picked up our son from Parris Island Fiday. This was the perfect place for him to come back to- he wanted off the island as soon as possible, and relax. The remote for the TV was his favorite!! We would definitely recommend this cottage to our family and friends.
Thanks for everything Sally. The Gerth Family Cincinnati, OH

My family and myself had such a great time here awaiting the graduation of one of the few the proud a marine!!! It was definitely a place to really say rest after a day full of an emotional roller coaster and physically draining experience. This occasion was especially a great one for our family, as three generations came to one common place. The great opportunity to put together a great meal for our family day activity with our new marine. We have already had our thanksgiving. Again sally much thanks to you and your fiancé.

This week at the cottage was great! We walked in and immediately felt comfortable. We were here for our son’s graduation along with other family members. The cottage was a great gathering place for everyone. If we ever find ourselves back in the area, we will definitely stay here again. P.S.

What a blessing to find such a wonderful place! Sally has truly outdone herself. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to accommodate our family and give us such a great place to relax. The kid’s enjoyed the beach at hunting island state park while the adults enjoyed just exploring these beautiful islands. Thank you sally for everything. Our stay couldn’t have been better. You’ve truly thought of everything to make your visitors stay feel at home.
Kim Cunningham Bryson City, NC

Palmetto Moon Cottage
Positive hello – my comments have already been entered by sally, however, they should have been much longer! This rental is like a fine condo, but with unlimited, added benefits. It is very convenient to Parris Island – only about 3-4 minutes to main gate. We will probably never have reason to return to that area, but if we do, there’s no doubt we will stay here again. Thanks, sally, for helping make our memorable occasion even more special. Sharon Fair

Palmetto Moon Cottage
Wow! What a fantastic find! We were here in Parris Island for my nephews graduation. We felt fortunate to find this wonderful place to stay! It’s like a 5 star hotel- so many extra amenities that are not listed! Very quiet, peaceful location. Pictures do not describe. Thank you so much for such a pleasant stay. Would highly recommend to anyone! S.Fair and family Ralph, AL

Palmetto Moon Cottage
How blessed we were to have found sally’s place on the Parris Island recruit family support board. Being able to stay in such a peaceful, lovely and well equipped “home away from home” made the journey so pleasant and relaxing.
