About the property

A spacious 2 BR/2 BA condo situated close to the beach and surrounded by nature.

Our spacious 1,200 sq ft condo has 2 large bedrooms and is situated on the third floor. It offers a very comfortable relaxing place from which to enjoy your vacation. The condo is NO SMOKING. No pets allowed, please. This unit consists of a Master bedroom, with a King bed, and the 2nd bedroom, with 2 double beds; a fully equipped kitchen; a large living area; a huge wrap-around deck; central air conditioning; cable TV’s; and a full-sized washer and dryer. It features new sofas and living room furniture, new carpet, tile floors, and has been freshly painted, including a recent refinishing of the ceilings with a smooth finish. The HVAC unit was replaced in 2012 with a new energy efficient model.

The main living area has a full-sized couch and a love seat that pulls out into a bed; coffee table; one end table with lamps; TV and DVD player; and a ceiling fan. The room has two sets of sliding glass doors which open onto the wrap-around deck that is great for morning coffee, evening cocktails, or just relaxing. From the deck, you have a panoramic view of the golf course and driving range; to the right, there is also a small pond with a variety of wildlife.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the cookware, silverware, dishes, glasses and cups you will need during your stay. There is a full-sized refrigerator, electric stove, microwave oven, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker and blender. The kitchen opens to the living room across a half-wall bar with four stools. Right next to the kitchen is a dining room, with windows to enjoy the sunshine.

The Master bedroom features a walk-in closet and full, private bathroom, as well as access to the deck. The 2nd bedroom also has a full, private bath, as well as access to a private screened-in porch with new redwood deck flooring.

Colony 1 is nestled between the Oyster Bay Golf Course and the unspoiled beauty of Sunset Beach. It is directly across the street from the intercoastal waterway, only 2 miles from 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 on Shoreline Drive along the way.

Once on the island, there is plenty of public parking and there are several access points to the right and left 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 bicycle riding to the rocky jetty at the end of the barrier island. If you don’t want to bring bicycles, they can be rented from the beach front store.

Two miles to the south is Calabash, NC, known as the “Seafood Capital of the World!” There are excellent seafood restaurants in Calabash as well as fantastic shopping. You can even visit the docks to purchase fresh seafood.

For the golf enthusiast, our condo is located near many excellent golf courses. Within a 15-20 minute drive you will find the following courses: Oyster Bay, The Thistle, Sandpiper Bay, The Pearl, Sea Trail (3 courses), Lion’s Paw, Tiger’s Eye, Crow Creek, Brunswick Plantation, and Meadowlands.

North Myrtle Beach and the Myrtle Beach Strand are a 15 minute drive south along US Highway 17. Myrtle Beach is known for its 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 Barefoot Landing. Park and walk around these family fun areas for shopping, live entertainment, and dining with a theme park atmosphere.

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

About Mike & Dawn Fulks

We are professionals living in the Raleigh, NC area. We love going to the beach and playing golf, and the Sunset Beach area is perfect for these pursuits.

Mike & Dawn Fulks purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mike & Dawn Fulks chose Sea Trail

We were looking for a property that was close to the beach but not necessarily beach-front. We wanted some place that was quiet, where you can sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful views. This condo and the Colony 1 property are perfectly situated - close to the beach and surrounded by golf courses. The property is well-maintained with a beautiful pool, tennis courts, and community grills for cooking out.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is cozy and homey, giving you the sense that you are in your own home. It is a great base for trips to the beach for the day, or for a day on the links. It is close enough to Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand to enjoy those activities, but away from the hustle and bustle.

Sunset Beach is made for family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was only a few minutes drive to sunset beach. It was clean, spacious, and the balcony was amazing for morning coffee and evening beers! The community is small and private so there was no fighting for parking spots or pool space. We have 3 little ones and we all slept and lived very comfortably here for the week. Being on the 3rd floor made us feel even more safe, helped burn the vacation calories (check out calabash creamery!), and even our 2 yr old scaled the steps with ease. We took use of the beach chairs and boogie board in the beach closet! Fibber McGee's and Tony's pizza were our 2 favorite places to eat. All the amentities in the kitchen made it easy to cook meals otherwise. Dawn was a perfect host, communication via email was easy and swift. I would recommend this condo and area to any family and plan on returning again!

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed from January 6, 2018 tnrough April, 30, 2018. We loved the location and the condo was great. It was quite comfortable and amenitites were as described. The owners were quick to respond to our requests.

The only thing disappointing was the kitchen was not properly outfitted with adequate cooking pots/ pans and not one knife was sharp enough to even cut cheese. We did inform the owners of this issue and their response was to say sorry it was not adequate. Was hoping for a little more.

The internet is quite slow as well, it works fine but is not high speed.

Would recommend this for shorter stays when the kitchen and wifi are not so important.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback from all of our guests. When we were alerted that the internet speed was not as fast as this guest would have liked, we did increase it. This, of course, was not free and did increase our monthly internet bill. I apologize if the updated speed was not adequate. I have personally used the internet to work remotely while at the condo and have found the speed more than sufficient. We will certainly assess the kitchen situation and update things as needed.
