About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bath home just steps away from ocean and Bird Island.

'Unforgettable' beach cottage is a beautifully decorated and updated 4 bedroom 2 bath house. We are located on the desirable west end of the island only four houses back from ocean front! You can see the beach access from our cottage. It is shown in one of our pictures taken from our cottage. It is not so crowded here on the west end. We are not near the crowded pier area where all the people come from town to park and go to the beach. We have just completed our new high rise deck with wonderful views of the ocean, sunset and sunrise. We have also added a gate with a lock on it for safety. We have one of the few cottages that has a paved driveway which is great for the kids feet! We have a large area under cottage to relax in the chairs or for kids to run around. Our cottage has high end furniture, designer bedding and quality mattresses to make sure you wake up feeling great after a good night sleep. The kitchen is fully stocked so that you can prepare quick snacks for the beach or a gourmet meal. There are ceiling fans throughout to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Each bedroom has its own TV and DVR and there is also a TV and DVR in the den area. If you prefer to be outside, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise on our screened front porch, complete with rocking chairs and picnic table, or have a cold drink and watch the sunset off the back deck.

Outside we have a large shower and changing area, two picnic tables, paved driveway, a fenced back yard and gas grill.

This beach rental allows you to check in Sunday and depart Sunday. We think this really helps with all the traffic on the highway and it is not so crowed at the grocery stores. It also gives you a day to pack if you work. We hope this will work for you.

Sunset Beach is located on the southernmost barrier island on the North Carolina coastline. It is a peaceful three mile long island with wide powdery white sand beaches that is unspoiled by commercial development. Sunset Beach is widely viewed as one of the cleanest, family oriented beaches on the east coast. Its white sandy beaches are a great place to sunbathe, walk, ride a bike, jog or just sit and relax while watching the boats and the dolphins come and go. Bird Island is also located on the west end of the island. Bird Island is a pristine, undeveloped 1300 acre state preserve that is home to loggerhead turtles and the Purple Sandpiper found only on Bird Island. This end of the beach is very spacious, quiet and peaceful and provides absolutely stunning unobstructed views of the ocean, marsh and the beautiful sunsets for which Sunset is known.

Sunset is centrally located providing easy access to Calabash, 'The Seafood Capital of the World', just two miles away, where you can feast on the local seafood, buy fresh shrimp off of one of the shrimp boats or charter a boat and catch your own dinner. North Myrtle Beach is just 15 miles away, Myrtle Beach 25 miles away and historic Wilmington is approximately 45 miles away. You can catch a world class show in one of the many theaters in Myrtle Beach or you can tour a battleship in Wilmington. For the shopper there are endless opportunities including Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach and two Tanger Outlet centers. If golfing is your thing the area is also considered the 'Golf Capital of the World'. Sea Trail, The Thistle, Lions Paw, Tigers Eye, Panthers Run, Crow Creek, Oyster Bay, The Pearl and Sandpiper are just some of the courses within 15 minutes of Sunset Beach.

About The Owner

We have been coming to sunset beach for 28 years and finally we have an 'unforgettable' cottage of our own. We love to be at Sunset every chance we get but unfortunately we can't use it all the time so you are in luck. We are busy with two kids in sports, boy scouts and other activities. We hope you can enjoy it some too.

Beautiful place! Beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! We had a great time at Sunset Beach and the house was everything we expected. Very well maintained and very well accommodated. Tonya was terrific in responding to our questions about the place and the local attractions. Can rate her and the place high enough.

Cozy by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Best booking experience ever! Tonya was very personable and accommodating. The house was clean and cozy. The beach access was a short distance away. Calabash, a family favorite destination for seafood, was a short drive. Just what we needed, relaxation and fun by all!

Tonya, thank you for sharing your home!

Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at "Unforgettable". The cottage is attractive, clean, comfortable and well appointed. It is very close to the beach access, and the beach is wide and quite beautiful on this end of the island. Tonya was very easy to work with and very responsive to all communications. We would love to go back again for a longer stay!

Beautiful property, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at "Unforgettable". It was truly and unforgettable experience for us. The home was clean and family friendly. We loved taking walks to the beach and enjoyed the nature feel of this Beach. The outlook on top of the roof was wonderful at sunset and sunrise! The owners were very helpful and super friendly, I didn't feel like a renter of the property but a friend of the family. I recommend anyone looking for a great get away and relaxing vacation this is one perfect spot. We hope to go back in the near future!

So Comfortable, didnt want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Unforgettable in July! This home is exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable, great amenities and really close to the beach which is the reason we come to Sunset Beach. Spent alot of late afternoon and evening time under the house playing games, grilling and hanging out in the great outdoor space. I wish we could have stayed 2 weeks. We have stayed in many rentals up and down the NC coast over the last 20 years, this is the first home we have ever rebooked. We cannot wait to return to Unforgettable next summer!

The Proposal

  • 5 of 5

As always the Unforgettable Cottage was perfect!!! Tonya, the owner of the cottage, has always been a pleasure to deal with, and makes the entire process very easy. The cottage was comfortable, very clean, and had all the amenities you could possibly need. We enjoyed our morning talks on the front porch, the crows nest at night, bike riding on the beach, and spending hours upon hours on the beach. The beach access was just a stone's throw away from the cottage, which made it very convenient.

It was the perfect place to spend quality time with my grown kids, and make beautiful memories.

The most important of those memories was that my daughter's boyfriend proposed to her at the Kindred Spirits mailbox on Sunset Beach. This was definitely an unforgettable moment during our stay at the Unforgettable Cottage.

We will continue to return to the Unforgettable Cottage to make more lasting memories in the years to come.
