Joe and Susan Forrester purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Joe and Susan Forrester chose Sunset Beach
We have been visiting Sunset Beach / Ocean Isle Beach for years since my daughter moved there after college. We always stayed in Sunset Villas / Sandpiper Bay. We love the golf course, as well as the peaceful surroundings. It just felt like home. So here we are! It just made sense to us. Please inquire about monthly rentals.
What makes this Condo unique
Sandpiper Bay / Sunset Villas is so close to the places we like. Our view is the best for watching the beautiful birds at the pond, as well as enjoying the peaceful view drinking coffee on the screen porch in the mornings. The birds come up to the screen porch to look at us. The view and being on the ground floor really sold us on this property. Prior to the purchase, we have rented in Sunset Villas an average of 10 times a year over 12 years. Each time I tried to get a ground floor, but was only lucky enough to get one twice. So, we decided to stop stressing over that and get our own. It is nice not to have to haul groceries and suitcases up stairs.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Our experience here was great. The owners were wonderful to work with and people in the neighborhood were friendly.
Peaceful and absolutely refreshing vacation getaway
The owners are outstanding and the property is among the best we have stayed at. I would highly recommend.
We enjoyed our stay at Susan and Joe's condo. We love the area, the pool and the screened back patio area. The condo is up to date and had great amenities that made it feel like home. We really enjoyed the restaurant suggestion also. We loved our stay and hope to stay again next year.
Wonderful place to stay
Joe and Susan were absolutely wonderful! They made sure we had everything we needed and gave us suggestions of local places to eat and entertainment. Their place is beautiful and a great location. We enjoyed our stay and great hospitality.
Colleen, You and your family were a pleasure to have visit. Please come back anytime! Hope you have a nice rest of the summer. You are always welcomed at our condo.

Lovely property/owners accused us of lying/being filthy and breaking a mirror.
Please look at the notes regarding the deposit refund. The dishwasher was broken, the disposal had a disgusting smell emanating from it and the bathtub shower was not usable due to large clog that stopped it from draining and the bottle of draino that the cleaning company put in the drain hoping it would take the clog down. The draino did not work and we could not use either bath or shower in that bathroom.
They did get a plumber out to fix issues 2 days later; so we did not have use of the full condo for those 2 days out of our 5 day rental.
My daughter became quite ill and couldn't travel so that changed everything at the last minute - actually the morning of departure. When Susan told me only 6 people were allowed in the condo (we then had become 8), my son, his wife and daughter got a hotel room leaving 5 in the condo. I didn't think it would be a problem; but we took care of it.
Upon leaving I received a note indicating that my family had left the condo in filthy condition....etc.....this is not true. Also that they were fined for having too many people in condo - again not true.(I don't know about the fine but 5 was not too many)
We didn't use trash can liners - none were provided. I did purchase some later and left them in the condo.
Charged for pulling the mirror out of the wall....it was already out ---held in by the nails leverage but not anchored - I put it under the sink so it wouldn't get broken and told them about it. If we had broken it or pulled it out of the wall; I would have said as much.
Perhaps this was about keeping the deposit and not compensating for the repairs that had to be made..... I don't know; but I am really upset to have been slandered like this.
Damage claim $200.00
Date of claim 7/29/18
Carol, I hope you had a safe trip home. I received a call from the HOA board and they alerted me of a complaint from the owners in my condo building. The complaint was that there were more than 6 people staying in my condo. My cleaning people noted you had 3 adults and 5 children. You confirmed this to me by phone. This is against the covenant of Sandpiper Bay and also mentioned in the rental agreement between me and the tenants. They are imposing a fine against me. Also, we are
having a contractor come out tomorrow to repair the wall from the mirror being pulled from the wall and reinstall. Our cleaning company were shocked at how you left our condo. They called me from the condo to request more money for the cleaning, so I had to pay double. They were disgusted by the mess you left. The condo was left extremely dirty and trash bags were not used in the trash can. This is a condo and not a hotel. There is no maid service so you are expected to buy trash bags. Blankets were left all over the floors. There was food all over the furniture and gum stuck to the floors under the twin beds. My cleaning company said, and I quote" Never ever had renters leave everything in such a disarray and dirty." Needless to say, I am shocked that you had such little regard for our property.
Carol, you falsified the reservation. The only way we found out was you were caught by neighbors and our cleaners. You had 2 people sleeping on the floors. We could tell that by the blankets. There was nothing wrong with the disposal. We had it replaced since we found out there was a leak with the dishwasher. This was noted less than 1 hour before you were schedule to check in. We got a plumber there as soon as possible. Someone had put a cap in the drain in the hall bathroom. That was determined by the plumber. In the 3 years we have rented the condo, I have never seen anything like this. I would never recommend anyone to ever rent to you. My cleaning people were texting me photos in disbelief.
Enjoyed the stay
We had a good time but was a little disappointed with the beds. Master bed was way to high for my husband and myself. Plus didn't realize the other rooms had only twins. But was very disappointed with how dirty the floors were. The condo is nice for the group we had and would recommend because the Forrester's were very gracious.
Thank you, Marie Heroux
Thank you for your note. It clearly states in our description in VRBO that we have twin beds in the 2 front rooms. Also, there are photos posted showing that. The master bed height is normal for us. Sorry it was a little high for you. The floors were very clean when you arrived, as the owners of the cleaning service sent me photos. Spoke to the owner of our cleaning company and I was reminded that if a renter has a cleaning issue and notifies us within 24 hours, the company will inspect and resolve the problem. If the floors were dirty why would you wait 20 plus days to tell us? Why not upon entry? As soon as you left, it was determined there was a leak from the dishwasher. So as the week went on, you probably noticed discoloration in the kitchen. Needless to say, we had the dishwasher and garbage disposal replaced within a couple of days of your departure. We had no ideal that there was a dishwasher problem until our condo was inspected. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you had safe travels home. Hope to see you again in the future.
