Each side has one bedroom with a Queen size bed, the other has 2 twins, with a Jack and Jill bathroom between, perfect for 2 young families to share. If you want to be outside you can enjoy coffee on the screened front porch in the morning, and husk corn for dinner or just lounge on the back deck in the afternoon.Your pet will enjoy the view from either porch too. Under the house there is plenty of room for side by side parking, and the kids will enjoy a swing, table and chairs for snacks or games, and concrete pad for their chalk artwork. There's an outdoor shower and hose for rinsing off that sand and sunscreen!

NEW in 2016 check out the "Visit Sunset Beach" app.

Once you cross over the bridge to our small barrier island, leave your work and daily routine behind. Enjoy our wide beach, with it’s south facing gradual slope and gentle waves, bike around the island, or walk west to the Kindred Spirit on the Bird Island Preserve and leave your thoughts in the notebooks found in the mailbox. Check out the island shops, pier and turtle nest talks.

Close to home base, you can enjoy weekly summer concerts in front of the Ingram Planetarium, and visit the shops and restaurants on High Market.

Returning visitors to Sunset will enjoy the Old Bridge Preservation Society,new home of the old pontoon swing bridge since 2010, located almost under the new bridge, near the new public boat ramp.

Off island,Sunset Beach is surrounded by golf courses,as well as fishing and kayaking tours for the entire family.

Nearby Calabash features seafood restaurants along the historic waterfront, other varied restaurants-especially breakfast, and the must see Callahan's Shops.

If you want to stick with your fitness routine, the beach and streets of Sunset Beach are perfect for a run; if you need a group activity, Crossfit OIB and Body Edge are both about 3 miles away.

5 miles up the road check out the Museum of Coastal Carolina and the new Shallotte River Swamp Park, opening June 2015- featuring eco tours and zip lines, something your kids will love!

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.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Dog House and the quality of every aspect of Sunset Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Mary is an ideal host in thoughtfulness and prompt responses to special requests. The house is tastefully and cheerfully decorated in bright beach colors with a few unique touches of special-friends dog themed art. Not overdone. The overall art created the feel of being "at the beach" even though we were a few houses away from the ocean, directly across from one of many well designed beach access boardwalks. The house functions well -- very comfortable, not crowded. Seems larger than it is. We especially enjoyed our mornings on the back porch with coffee and reading, nestled in the privacy of beach evergreens. Actually, we were impressed with how beautifully the whole area is landscaped with care for preservation of the dunes and clean beaches. Perfect family beach. Quiet, friendly people. Gorgeous sunsets at Sunset Beach!

Great Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This nice, cozy beach house is literally one block from the beach, which made it super easy and convenient to pop back and forth from the beach throughout the day. The covered/screened in porch was also great for coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. The road is quiet and peaceful. The house is as advertised and looks just like the pictures. Mary was a great host. We will definitely be back.
