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.

Everything about this property was better than advertised. The sky lights flooded the house with natural light. The yard at the base of the deck was ideal for quit trips out with the dogs. In early May, the island was quiet, the sun warm, and the uncrowned beach was delightful. The screen porch, with furniture better than pictured, added to the peaceful nature of this house. Everything was just lovely.
Wonderful weekend at a wonderful property
Everything about our recent stay was perfect. May was a wonderful host--very responsive and helpful. She even left us cookies to welcome us to the home. The home itself is very well maintained with lots of nice features in a great location. I highly recommend this property.
Great house, great location
Stayed here with my family, 7 adults 1 child (plus dogs), we were in town for a funeral unfortunately, but we were at least able to enjoy the accommodations. We really liked the house, front and back porch, skylights, ample room for all of us and so close to the beach you can hear it when it's quiet. Beach access right at the end of the street, we were able to take a couple strolls on the beach which was a much needed / relaxing break. Mary was very nice and quick to respond when we had a couple questions. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Mary!
Very nice & accommodating!
In town for just a weekend & this place was just what we were looking. Super close to everywhere we needed to go, & had everything we needed also! Def will be back! Owner is also super nice & returns your messages very quickly if anything arises!
This is a very cute house and close to the beach! It was exceptionally clean when we walked in which is a wonderful treat, not to mention the fresh baked cookies from Mary. Nice Touch! We're already looking for another date to visit again. Thanks Mary for the comfortable accommodations at Sunset Beach!
Lovely beach cottage with everything we needed!
Our stay at the dog house has been perfect. The house was well kept, comfortable, and beachy inside. It had everything we needed and we were able to relax, or be at the beach in just a short walk. We will be back!
