About John L. Jackson
My wife and I owned a chain of photographic stores and an audiovisual design and sales company in South Carolina. We were blessed enough to have children and a nice home on a farm near Columbia, SC, where my daughter and son-in-law have horses and cats. I not only enjoy our farm, but a small lake house and of course the beach. I am a Rotarian and a volunteer business counselor with the SCORE organization. I am involved with our church and community. I enjoy golf, genealogy, art, woodworking, boating, work around the farm, fish and release, and good friends.
John L. Jackson purchased this House in 1979
Why John L. Jackson chose Debordieu Colony
When my wife and I were at a business conference at a beach near DeBordieu in 1977, we enjoyed the sound of the waves strumming on the shore so much that we decided to search for a place to build a beach house. After a number of visits to different beach locations we happened upon the DeBordieu development. It was in the early stages of being developed and was still in a wild state with wildlife everywhere and dirt roads to the south beach. After being blocked on 'Old Carriage Road' by a large deer, we decided this was the place we were looking for. We started construction in 1978 and had our first stay in our new home in the Fall of 1979. After hurricane Hugo we did a great deal of rebuilding and remodeling. Of course, with a beach house this is an on going pleasure. We also like to explore the historic towns of Georgetown and Charleston. In Georgetown we like to dine at several fine restaurants. Our favorite is the River Room on Front street in Georgetown.
What makes this House unique
Although, most of our guests enjoy the beach in the summer, we find that each season has it's own uniqueness. We always enjoy seeing the birds migrating in the spring and fall, the full moons rising, the glow and reflection of the sunsets, shrimp boats working, pelicans and osprey fishing, walking the beach, all these things and best of all just being still and absorbing the beauty and wonder of nature.

Just what the pictures showed!- Ocean off the back porch, great views.
Clean, roomy, wonderful porches, great shell hunting, fun nature trail ride in the golf cart, much belly laughter with 15 older women. A house to remember for the peacefulness, views, set up was great, everything we needed was there, and we'd come back anytime!
What a wonderful group of refined ladies. Not only did they enjoy our beach.house it was obvious they enjoyed each other's company and it turned out to be a win win for everyone. Please come back anytime.
The Jackson home is a not merely a rental; it is a unique and welcoming oasis. This is due not only to its listed amenities, but primarily because of its host and owner. The comfortable accommodations allow privacy and guests are able to savor the setting, the spaciousness and the casual feeling of home. This is enhanced by cordial and prompt communications before, during and after our stay and the privilege of enjoying Mr. Jackson’s artwork which adorn the walls. We seven women, who have been friends for 50+ years, have paid the Jacksons the highest compliment possible, having already booked this magical dwelling for next year!
When you have a wonderful group of refined women that truly enjoy each others company and have an appreciation of the things that really matter it's easy to create an environment that is welcoming and attractive. We look forward to your next visit. Lee and John
Relaxed Weekend on the Ocean
We loved our stay! Highlights were the amazing ocean side screened porch, pool and ping pong tables, and all the comforts of a home away from home!
Also, loved the beautiful watercolors painted by the owner that were displayed throughout the house!
We would definitely visit again.
Thank you Sheena for the nice review and thank you for choosing our beach house for your weekend of relaxation. Please come again soon.
We rented this property for a family reunion and my 70th Birthday party. It was perfect. The four upstairs bedrooms have a balcony overlooking the ocean. Great view to get you going in the morning! Large screened-in porch leading to an open deck and short walkway to the ocean. We had the beach to ourselves in April. Nice floor plan for our large birthday gathering. The garage/basement level is great for games and the golf cart. Mr. Jackson was an incomparable host, very accommodating and personable. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Brian, Lee and I hope you had a really great and happy birthday gathering. We are especially honored that you chose our beach house for the event since you are local and had many other choices. Please come back soon.
Relaxing Beach Front Home!
Our family of 16 (some there for 2 nights most there for 4) had a wonderful Thanksgiving week at the Jackson's perfect beach front house. We loved the quietness of being near the end of the row of houses and the peaceful walking in the uninhabited beach area. We ALL truly relaxed...Having a bathroom with each bedroom makes a huge difference with such a large group. The kids had plenty to do between the pool and ping pong, football games on the beach and of course the family competition to see who could find the most sharks teeth. (Between us all we found over 100!) We all played tennis together at the club and spotted 18 alligators on the nature trail from the golf cart. Adults enjoyed every morning of coffee in the rocking chairs on the deck literally feet from the waves. I would highly recommend and will hopefully be back...Thank you Jackson's for your hospitality!
Lee and I are so pleased that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving week at our beach house. Thanks Keri, for a great review from a five star family!
A wonderful beach-front beach house
My family was delighted to spend a week at this lovely beach house for a re-union and hopes to do so again. The owners were kind and attentive and created a wonderful atmosphere in their home. The home is literally right on the beach which makes it so easy to enjoy time in the sand and water. The location of the house is perfect since it is only a few houses down from a nature preserve featuring miles of uninhabited beach. Every room in the house is a stand-alone suite and has its own bathroom. We loved it. Thank you again.
It seems that our beach house specializes in wonderful family reunions and they always follow the first house rule that "Everyone must have Fun".
Nathan, we hope to have your family back again soon. Thanks for the nice review. Lee and John
