For the children, the VAC has planned activities daily during the summer and holiday periods.

Activities available nearby are: canoeing, kayaking, sailing, horseback riding, deep sea and pier fishing, eco-tours and adventure cruises.

Sunset Beach was voted 'Best Beach on the East Coast' by Duke University and is in the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area. Sunset Beach has been a quietly kept secret of beach lovers. It has remained a wholesome, family-oriented community and was ranked the #1 barrier island on the North Carolina coast.

The setting offers the perfect backdrop for one of the most peaceful resort communities on the East Coast. The Grand Strand area hosts numerous 'Live Entertainment Theaters' featuring shows by the popular group Alabama, world champion exhibition ice skating and spectacular 'Western' shows.

The Grand Strand/Myrtle Beach area has already become known as 'the Branson of the South.' The climate is always pleasant. Temperatures range from an average low of 54 in January, to a high of 82 in July.

About Charlie Winter

My wife and I are both from New York and both retired after working for the Department of Defense for over 30 years in Rome NY, Washington DC, and Heidelberg Germany. We both love to golf, go to the beach, and travel. We have traveled all over the world.

Charlie Winter purchased this condo in 1998

Why Charlie Winter chose Sunset Beach

We purchased property at Sea Trail in the mid-1990's after deciding this was the place we wanted to retire to and build a house. Florida was too hot and crowded for us and this area was the best retirement place we found. The people here are all very friendly, golf courses are great, and beach is beautiful. We purchased our condo a few years after we bought our property for investment and to have a place to live while our house was being built. Turned out we almost lived in the condo one full year as our house was being built.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful view of the first hole of the Maples golf course, first floor condo so no walking up stairs, nice Village Activity Center about a 3 minute walk from our condo, beautiful family friendly Sunset Beach less than a 10 minute drive from the condo, out of the congestion of Myrtle Beach yet close enough to drive to for a day trip with plenty of activities for adults and children, and access to 3 nice on-site 18 hole golf courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been a very pleasant stay for us. Our daughter definitely earned a credit for finding this unit on short notice. Even though the purpose of our trip was not golf, it was quite tempting with the view this condo has. However, we all enjoyed almost daily trips to the island over the historical bridge. We may stop by again!
