The complex is on the mainland directly across the street from the intercostals waterway. We are only two miles to the barrier island and beach where a new causeway takes you to Sunset Beach Island and the beach. There are beautiful views of the intercoastal waterway and marsh along the Shoreline Drive road along the way.

Sunset Beach 'is the smallest and quietest of three barrier islands which together, make up the modestly famed South Brunswick Islands. An uncommon coastal scene, this small sequestered island is crowned with a naturally wide, gently sloping, white sand beach and a shroud of undisturbed sand dunes. This unadulterated setting is a natural habitat and nesting ground for the abundant coastal wildlife, including the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtle and beloved Wood Stork.' (From The Town of Sunset Beach website.)

There is plenty of public parking once on the island and several access points to the right along the beach front road. Sunset Beach features a fishing pier where for a small fee you can fish or enjoy the scenery. You can also enjoy riding your bike, or a rented one from the beach front store on the beach, to the rocky jetty at the end of the barrier island.

Three miles to the south is Calabash, NC, known for its many seafood restaurants and has the title of “Seafood Capital of the World”! The shopping is fantastic as well and you can visit the docks to purchase fresh seafood.

North Myrtle Beach is a about a 15 minute drive south along Rt 17. Myrtle Beach is known for hundreds of fine dining establishments, live entertainment, dancing, amusement parks, miniature golf, and shopping. Notable places to check out are Broadway at the Beach and Bearfoot Landing. Park and walk around these family fun areas for shopping, live entertainment, and dining with a theme park atmosphere.

Please contact us if you would like additional information via e-mail or phone. We look forward to having you as our guest!!

About Mark McDonald

Thank you for your interest in renting our condo. I am a recently retired high school teacher and my wife is a nurse in the Doylestown area of PA...which is north of Philadelphia in Bucks County.

Mark McDonald purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mark McDonald chose Sunset Beach

After vacationing in the Sunset Beach area for several years we decided to buy a condo our family, friends, and guests can use year around. We enjoy the area and plan on spending some of our retirement time in Sunset Beach.

What makes this condo unique

The golf, ocean, and sea food are fantastic! It really recharges the batteries to spend time in the Sunset Beach area. It has become are 2nd home to get away from the fast pace of the North East.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mark,

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at Sunset. I hope we left everything as it should be. We very much enjoyed your condo. It was clean, comfortable and convenient and what a beautiful setting. No gator sightings, but we did see turtles and a blue heron on the pond and the weather couldn't have been better!

Thank you for checking on us. It is nice to have owners who care. As I said before, we tried to take good care of your condo. You can be sure we will recommend you to friends and will contact you if we find ourselves going back to Sunset. It had been 20 years since we were last there. It is just as beautiful as we remembered and makes us want to go back.

Thank you again.

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this condo with our dog.

It is 7 minutes driving to Sunset Beach, which is an amazing place.

The condo is lovely. Two big bedrooms with a bathroom each one. There is a TV in each room in addition to the TV in the living room. The kitchen is well equipped to prepare the family meals.

Mark, the owner, is very nice person. He touched base with me to make sure everything was ok.

Definitively, we will come back to this condo when we want to take vacation at the Sunset Beach/Myrtle Beach area.

Nice condo great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this condo. We Love Sunset beach and Ocean Isle beach (right down the road)! The pond right outside is nice. Didn't see the resident alligator, but being ground level was very convenient since we brought our dog with us. We didn't have many towels, but before we left we found them all in the washing machine still...I guess the cleaning lady forgot to dry them and put them in the cabinet. There was a miscommunication in check out time. On my reservation details it said check out was at 11am. However, the cleaning lady showed up at 10am and said she was told check out was at 9am. She was really nice about it and gave us a little while longer to get packed! But overall it was really nice and comfortable! Look forward to staying here again in the future.

A great place at an affordable price

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. It is a first floor unit that was welcoming to my wheelchair. My family and I loved the location, the alligator outside our door and the communication of the owner. My only caveat is that I was easily able to get my manual wheelchair inside, but I was not able to easily access either bathroom. The doorways were too narrow. Everything else was great. We had a good time while we were there. This condo will work well for most folks. In our case, we could have used just a bit more access. The beach access is made easier by the folks in Sunset Beach. Call ahead to the Town Hall and they will provide a beach chair for wheelchair users. You can also get a permit to take a golf cart onto the beach with your wheelchair user. Finally, when the tide went out, I could roll all around the beach on the packed sand. I was not sinking into the sand with my manual wheelchair. I have not had that luxury anywhere else so far. If it was closer to us, we would go back.

Comfortable condo near golf.

Plenty of room in this well supplied condo. It is a little dated yet it may help the price.
