Everything you could need!
We come to Sunset a least once a year and have stayed at several beach houses. This house is a beach home! Very convenient location so our son could walk to the pier to fish. And the beach access across the road made it very easy to walk back and forth. Jan has stocked the home with everything you could think to need and more and you can tell so much thought and effort has gone into this home. Truly Pet friendly, latches everywhere helps keep the dogs contained and they can still get fresh air. Jan greeted us and gave us a tour and was so nice and helpful to work with. Highly recommend this property and hope to stay here again on a future trip!
Thanks so much taking the time to provide this this wonderful review of our home Dana! It's when we hear thoughts like yours that all the effort and care we have put (and continue to do so) into bringing this home back to life makes it all so worthwhile. We're so very grateful for our guests such as yourselves and we hope you and your family can return again soon!
What a great house!
We had a great time! The house is very comfortable, well-equipped, super clean. Perfect location.It was a bit chilly when we visited in early spring. We still spent lots of time on the beach, taking long walks, riding bikes, playing Frisbee, and jumping into the water (briefly). Wonderful hosts who made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel welcome! We loved the location, right across the street from beach access near the pier, and a quick walk to the ice cream store for our boys. Feasted on fresh local shrimp and oysters. Hope to return soon! Thanks, Jan!
I'm so glad that you and your family had such a wonderful visit as a "first timer" to Sunset Beach! We may be a teeny bit bias, but we really do love this island and all it has to offer. It sounds like you were able to enjoy some quality family time and made some truly great memories. Have a terrific summer, and I hope you can all return again soon! jan
Just Add Water was the perfect cozy getaway. While just my husband and I stayed, it would have easily fit 4 others. We instantly felt at home, everything we needed was available... as if Jan thought of it before we did! The beds were comfy, the décor was fresh and loved the treats when we arrived! Simply can't wait to return! Thanks for sharing your beach home Jan!

Beautifully decorated cottage in an excellent location. The owner thought of everything you would want or need. Been visiting Sunset for 25 years and this was the best rental we have ever had. Our two corgis, Boomer and Henry, loved the porches. Hope we will be able to return soon!

Wonderful beach cottage, great weather and our sons beach wedding was perfect.
I love this beach cottage. It is just the right size, right decor, and so comfortable! The beach is amazing. My son. Proposed to his girlfriend last year there. They were married on the beach here during this stay. Perfect setting for love and romance!
Hi Sharon, We really appreciate hearing back how vacations were, and how the stay went at our beach cottage, Just Add Water. Especially when it was so special as a beach wedding. You just about made us feel we were part of it. Thank you Sharon. Carole
Repeat customer. Always enjoy our stay
We have been visiting Sunset Beach for 5 years now, and have stayed in the Just Add Water Home three times. It is our favorite home. Love the beds, the linens, the walk across the street to the 3rd street beach access, the screened in porch, the L-shaped sofa - it is adorable. Our dogs love it too!
Hi Sheree, Thank you for letting us know about your stay at our beach cottage, Just Add Water. It really helps to hear that all went well. We like to hear from everyone, but especially from a repeat customer. Again, thank you Sheree. Carole
Sunset Beach is the southern most barrier island in Brunswick county. It is a quiet island, which is not commercialized--we do have an island market, a surf shop and an ice cream shop. It is a family-oriented beach. Bird Island is an undeveloped barrier island, is now the state’s 10th coastal reserve. It is located on the West end of Sunset Beach and is a 25 minute walk from the home.
