DeBordieu Colony

The locals call it “Debby-Do,” because the actual French pronunciation is just too difficult, though it’s something like “Deb-r-doo,” and is translated loosely as (D’abord Dieu), the “Borderland of God.” Only residents, their guests, club members, and confirmed renters are allowed past DeBordieu’s guard house.

This community is just the kind place almost anyone would aspire to live or vacation.

Filled with sprawling oceanfront mansions, somewhat more modest woodland homes, and even 3-bedroom villas, this Lowcountry coastal community offers isolation and sophistication for selective guests and residents.

Located along the northernmost border of Georgetown, DeBordieu is reserved for the most discriminating visitors and residents the Grand Strand might ever host.

Golf, tennis and social club memberships give visitors and residents a reason to play there. Some 2,700 acres of private creeks, marshes, and wooded neighborhoods, miles of virtually private oceanfront beaches, and fabulous dining, have made DeBordieu a lifestyle goal reserved for only the most discerning guests.

DeBordieu remains mostly a mystery and a curiosity to outsiders who travel by the entrance on U.S.17, just before hitting the Hobcaw Barony and the main bridge over the Waccamaw River to Georgetown. The region was the literally the playground of Kings, U.S. Presidents and visiting dignitaries from the 1600s through WWII. Now. It’s the quiet, peaceful and elegant community deserving of its French name or origin.

Limited rentals are available for those looking for something entirely different then the type of vacation normally associated with the Grand Strand.
