About the Property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms , 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Rental by a dailey rate may be requested.

The Star-Thrower is a two-story, oceanfront duplex right beside a direct scenic board walk to a wide, beautiful, white-sand beach.

You'll think you've gone back in time when you get to Sunset Beach. You won't see any amusement parks or Ferris wheels. Nothing but sea oats waving on the dunes and a wide white sugar sand beach calling you back to a simpler time when vacations were a period of quiet and relaxation.
For those who have a taste for excitement, Myrtle Beach is only 35 minutes away and offers various entertainments including theater, night clubs, etc., etc.

Golfer's heaven is putting it mildly as championship courses, stretch from horizon to horizon. From nearby Calabash, fresh caught fish and shrimp can be bought right off the dock. For those wishing to catch their own fish, a trip on one of the boats leaving early morning is fun and can be productive for the table.

Restaurants, major food stores and other shops are across the bridge only five minutes away. A small grocery (Deli)is a few blocks away, walking distance.

The expansive view from the front decks of our house speaks to serenity and well-being. Green wax myrtle clings to the dunes as they meander down to the strand which stretches wide until it encounters the gentle surf. Our unique geography causes Sunset Beach to face due south odd as that may sound. That means that our fabled sunsets are viewed as though rising over Bird Island rather than behind our houses. A turn in the coastline gives us this special orientation and also contributes to a more gentle surf for the enjoyment and safety of young swimmers.

Walking the beach is always pure pleasure but visitors to Sunset find a special treat in walking to Bird Island accessible across a shallow inlet. Its wild and unoccupied state except for sea birds and the occasional sea turtle enhance the feeling of being far from the maddening crowd.

There are several interesting places to visit close by. One of the best is our own Planetarium which both entertains and informs. A fine place to take young folks. It has a gift shop full of unique and special items. Nearby Ocean Isle has a museum that children will enjoy as well, should a rainy day intervene.

Our house has been lovingly furnished to provide comfort and satisfaction. Some of our favorite books behind for visitors to enjoy. We constantly try to upgrade and add things we hope will speak to our desire to make vacation time at the Star-Thrower a happy and memorable experience. It has been for us and for many of our friends and visitors and we hope it will be for you.

The second floor has three bedrooms, two baths and a laundry alcove. The master bedroom has a queen bed, private bath, TV/DVD, small library and an ocean-viewing deck.The second bedroom has a queen bed; the third bedroom has a queen bed and a double bed. The last two share a bathroom. All rooms have ceiling fans. The fourth bedroom is on the first level.
Both sides of the Star-Thrower (Side A East, Side B West) are mirror images with the following exceptions. The fourth bedroom on Side A has a queen bed. Side B has two twin beds.

A lockable, interior door connects both sides of the Star-Thrower, and is used when large families or groups of friends rent both. A floor-plan is available for planning purposes.
We make every effort to keep all equipment in good working order.
