Dreaming of a quiet getaway to the North Carolina coast? This completely renovated, 4 bedroom/3.5 bath beach house is perfect for your next family vacation, getaway w/friends, or even a church group retreat. The Island of Sunset Beach is a great alternative to the mainland convention/golf villa hotels and condos.

This spacious home is open, airy and tastefully furnished. The kitchen is well-equipped. There are games and activities galore. Under the house you'll find horseshoes and lots of space to just relax or perhaps take the canoe or a kayak down the canal to the intercoastal waterway. The screened porch provides a great venue for an afternoon board game or dining al fresco. Enjoy ocean and intercoastal waterway views from most of the decks and rear windows. Sun decks on the main and upper levels provide alternative spots to the beach. Access to the beach is less than 300 feet from the house. We welcome rentals from families and responsible adults over the age of 25. The house has beds for 8. Absolutely no pets and no smoking in this home or on the property.

Sunset Beach is the Southern-most island on the North Carolina coast and just 20 minutes from North Myrtle Beach. Sunset Beach is one of North Carolina’s most peaceful beaches with over 200 feet of natural dunes before the first row of homes. The atmosphere is quiet and family-oriented, even during peak season months. One of the Nation’s most beautiful wildlife preserves - Bird Island – is just a short walk down the beach. Observe deer, wild goats, sea turtles, and other sea life as well as enjoy miles of undeveloped dunes and marsh areas.

If you're a golfer, you don't have to travel far to enjoy dozens of courses. Also, we're close to many local conference centers (Sea Trail is one), making our home a nice alternative to hotel lodging.

About Jeannette - owner

Welcome to our Beach House! This is our second home on the island - the canal provides easy deep water access for anyone with a boat, jet ski, kayak, or canoe. It also provides an alternative venue for when the family gets tired of the beach. The house was built in 1991, and has undergone a full consmetic renovation, including new appliances, lighting, flooring, ceilings, a rebuilt fireplace, and plenty of furniture upgrades. The home is open and airy - fantastic views inside and out - we love it and hope you do too!

Jeannette - owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Jeannette - owner chose Southern Coast

o Sunset Beach is synonymous with family - what a fantastic place to vacation!

o Bring your boat or jet skis as the canal provides deep water access to the Intercoastal.

o Extensive dunes and broad, flat beach make for great walks and biking.

o Explore the marsh as an alternative to a day at the beach.

o More 'commercial' activities are a short drive onto the mainland - mini golf, regular golf, dining, movies, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a reminder to guests that beginning with Summer 2011, we changed our peak season weekly rental period to a Saturday-Saturday schedule. Please make sure you are viewing the correct dates on the calendar when scheduling your Sunset Beach getaway. We look foward to hosting you at our island home.

Great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The Bugg house was clean and comfortable and well equipped inside and out. We really enjoyed the screened porch and the deck. It's very close to beach and especially to the pier. Perfect weather was a bonus so sunrise and sunset walks on the beach were wonderful.

Beautifully decorated. Feels like home! Short walk to beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we have stayed here. The owners are great to work with, including calling us upon arrival to welcome us to their home. We had four adults, three teenagers and a baby and there was plenty of room and a lot to do, especially with the canoe and kayaks that our grandchildren loved! This is our 17th year at Sunset Beach and this has been by far the easiest and most accommodating family to rent from!
