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.

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a quiet, close to the beach place with everything you may need. It is well kept and has easy access to the entire area. Sunset is especially nice if you don't care for the overdeveloped, massive high rise mess.

Perfect Place, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. We wanted a beach marriage and when we were looking for a site, this location was serendipitous. The reservation process was easy and we would definitely rent here again. It is well maintained, clean and within walking distance of the ocean, so I didn't have to go far in my wedding dress. It has great views from its crow's nest. There is a great kayaking company close by (near the intracoastal bridge) that offers tours in the intracoastal waterway and elsewhere. It is located near Bird Island Coastal Reserve, so it had some great bird watching. I would definitely recommend this to friends looking for a great getaway place. The owners are very friendly, we didn't have any troubles during our stay but they made sure to let us know, that if we did, to give them a call.

Loved this UNFORGETTABLE house!

  • 5 of 5

Along with the fabulous location (2 blocks from the beach!), this house was perfect for our family! We used the top deck every night to star gaze and the screened front porch to wake up with the sun and a cup of coffee. We used the BBQ almost every night and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Great place to stay in Sunset Beach!

Great home with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4 adults/2 children) really enjoyed our first stay at Unforgettable and have already booked it for the 2016 season! The main reason we chose to rent Unforgettable was because of the location. Being on 38th Street gave us the option of walking two short blocks to our favorite access at 40th Street or walking straight across the road to the 38th Street access. Sunday to Sunday rental is great, avoiding traffic and grocery store crowds . Our family prefers not to eat out very much, and we found the kitchen to be well stocked with all of the needed cookware and dishes. The decor of the house is very cute and beachy. The bedrooms, while cozy, were comfortable. The screened in porch on the front of the house was a favorite hang out spot for us all. Tonya, thank you so much for sharing your great beach house with us! We can’t wait for our visit this summer!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We hadn't been to Sunset Beach in a number of years and were so glad we chose Unforgettable for our getaway. Our stay was truly Unforgettable! The location and easy access to the beach, the layout of the house, the cleanliness, responsiveness of the owners, etc., all made our weekend away perfect. We especially liked how there were a number of different areas to hang out outside...the back deck, the screened in front porch, or the "roof" deck. Plenty of places to spread out and be with the rest of the group, or not. If we plan another trip to Sunset Beach in the future, this is the first property I will look into!
