About Mary Young

Our family also owns The Birdhouse (VRBO #673048) on 34th Street, which we purchased back in 1993, after being introduced to Sunset by a sister and brother-in-law. Since then, our 3 children and friends enjoyed the Sunset Beach for summer vacations, Thanksgiving, spring break, so much over the years that we decided to "semi retire " to the area in 2013- and the sister and brother-in-law still have a place here close by too.

Mary Young purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Young chose Sunset Beach

Proximity to our Birdhouse was a consideration, and we housed guests who were attending one of our sons' beach wedding in 2014 at both homes.

Had a wonderful time at Sunset Beach with our 5 year old 'pup'. Loved being so close to the beach, lots of room to roam. The house is clean and comfortable, decorated in a fun beachy theme. My parents stayed with us for 2 weeks, great set-up for company, 2 beds and a bath on either side of living area. My husband enjoyed golfing one day. We took a drive to Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach to check out the areas. We all agreed Sunset Beach was the best. Close to grocery store and many restaurants(some were not open yet but quite a few were). It was a 'pawfect' place to relax.

Quiet Christmas Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a few nights over Christmas and it was the perfect getaway. Convenient to the beach and well stocked! The couch and beds are comfy. It was nice to be able to bring the dog as well. Mary was very communicative and accommodating with our requests and we were greeted by a sweet little welcome basket with a few snacks and essentials- and even a plate of cookies! Above and beyond! I would recommend!

We LOVED The Dog House!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so happy with my pick of The Dog House at Sunset Beach on VRBO! This is the easiest, friendliest way I've ever rented a house at Sunset Beach. The house itself was absolutely adorable with bright, "beachy" colors. The furniture/beds were very comfortable. Plenty of kitchenware/utensils for our Thanksgiving trip. The owner was so helpful and friendly and we even had freshly baked cookies and a goodie basket with snacks and dog treats waiting for us when we arrived! It truly felt like home and we were sad to have to leave. Our family will definitely be back to this house!

Fun Vacation at the Doghouse!! 🐾🐾

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our dog, Patrick, thoroughly enjoyed our month's vacation at the Doghouse. We would definitely love to return.

We had other family members to visit during our time there, and it worked well because of the design of the house.... two bedrooms and a bath on either side. Everyone had their privacy!!

I especially loved the bright cheerful colors used in the decor.... providing a happy atmosphere.

We were greeted with a basket of goodies.... homemade cookies... snacks... toys and treats for Patrick!! So thoughtful of Mary and Don.

The house was very clean and met our every need.

We enjoyed the screened in porch and the deck in the back which was surrounded by trees which gave you a sense of privacy with relaxation.

Nicely located....Short walk to the beach and pier.

Highly recommend the "DOGHOUSE"!!! 🐾?

Lovely Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This weekend we spent our second annual Autumn beach weekend at the Dog House, and I know that we will keep returning for years to come. The house is perfect for us (2 kids and a dog), and is very close to the beach and the pier. The layout was great with 2 queen bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms, so we probably could have even fit another family in there with no problem. Mary is so accommodating, and even left treats for my daughters to enjoy upon check in. The Dog House is a lovely beach home, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
