Property description

** 2014 will bring a minor increase in rates of $50.00/week due to the increase in utilities esp. water. The new sewer line costs all owners $5,500.00 in June of 2013 plus a $50.00 automatic charge every month for sewer line usage. Rates have not been raised since 2009 and we regret any inconvenience.

When you cross the intracoastal waterway you will travel over beautiful marshes filled with native birds on your way to Sunset Beach, North Carolina. The island itself is a little piece of paradise with some of the widest beaches you will see on the Atlantic seaboard. The beach is accessible at EVERY street via a wooden walkway through a large expanse of dunes filled with sea oats, grasses, and shrubbery.

We are located in the 8TH row back from the ocean about a FIVE MINUTE WALK to the water. The island is mainly residential and basically lacks commercialism aside from a few shops, a deli/grocery, and a bed and breakfast/motel.

Our beach house at 425 32nd St.on the WEST END of the island has a very unique layout. There is a separate living room, dining area, kitchenette, and bedroom/bathroom upstairs with the remaining bedrooms and living/kitchen/dining areas on the first floor. There are 3 bedrooms on the first floor; one bedroom has a king size bed with a connecting bath and the other two bedrooms each have a twin and a queen size bed and share a bath.

Upstairs there is a suite with a king size bed and a bath along with the other amenities listed above. Almost like two houses in one with SEPARATE ENTRANCES for each. It is the perfect home for either two couples, or a family with teenagers who like their privacy, or perhaps young children who need a quiet space, or maybe even for grandparents who came along and would like a little peace and quiet and privacy too. And the widow's watch (or roof deck) has a beautiful view of the sunrise and sunset due to the southern exposure of the island. You can even catch a view of the ocean from here.

This is a NO SMOKING and NO PET unit. We only RENT TO FAMILIES and ADULTS OVER the age of 24. HOUSE PARTIES per se are not allowed however entertaining by the renters is acceptable as long as loud, unruly or otherwise objectionable behavior IN OR OUT of the house is not exhibited. ALL FURNISHINGS which are part of the house MAY NOT be removed from the house. THERE MAY NOT BE MORE PEOPLE STAYING IN THE HOUSE THAN THERE ARE BEDS FOR!

The house is supplied with comforters, mattress pads, and pillows all other linens and towels are supplied by the renter. Renters are asked to supply their own paper products and any cleaning supplies they may need. A broom, mop, and vacuum cleaner are available for any immediate cleaning needs. A nominal fee of $90.00 will be charged for cleaning at departure to ensure the cleanliness of the house for our next renters.Check-in time is 3:30 pm and check-out time is at 10:30 am.These times need to be STRICTLY ADHERED to for my housekeeper to be able to get the entire house cleaned for the next renters.

The rental price listed is for the RENT ONLY. There is an ADDITIONAL CHARGE for the CLEANING(as stated above), NC TAX & SECURITY DEPOSIT. We DO NOT accept credit cards. ONLY CHECKS(PERSONAL AND CASHIERS)are accepted and there is a $30 charge for all returned checks.

We love our home and take a great deal of pride in it. We have furnished it in a beach motif and keep it updated to meet all of your needs. The furnishings have been chosen with care and we hope that they will create a comfortable atmosphere for you to vacation in.

We feel we are privileged to own a home on the island and we hope while you are there that you will take care of it as you do your own home. Thank you for allowing us to share Bugsy's Island Karat with you and your family. Have a great vacation.

May the weather be sunny,the water warm and the companionship delightful!!! ENJOY

Owner info

About the owner: We are a family from Pittsburgh, Pa. My husband Philip and I were born in the Pittsburgh area and have lived here all our lives. We have 2 grown daughters who live in Charleston, SC. and we now take care of our beloved furry children, our dogs and cats. My husband is in the steel business and I was an early childhood teacher and a buyer for Kaufmanns dept store but stopped working when our first daughter was born.

Why the Owner Chose Sunset Beach:
We bought this property because it is just naturally beautiful on the island. We originally bought here as we were enamored with the draw bridge and it's quaintness. Also the beach are so wide and the sand is like baby powder.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The island is quiet and peaceful and safe. There is basically no commercialism and that's what gives it it's charm. You can come here and just enjoy it's beauty without all the honkey-tonk.
