About Sanford Leake

Sanford and I have loved the North Carolina coast for most of our married life (50+ years) and especially Sunset Beach. We purchased this lovely villa after we retired from corporate life in the greater Chicago area to use as an escape from the bitter winters. We enjoyed the North Carolina climate so much we later moved to the greater Raleigh area. We have enjoyed sharing this peaceful get away with family and friends and now would like to share it with you. Welcome!!

Sanford Leake purchased this villa in 2012

Why Sanford Leake chose Sunset Beach

After an extensive search of Florida, North and South Carolina, we chose Sea Trail Plantation Resort in Sunset Beach, North Carolina because it offered the three R's (rest, relaxation and recreation) in a beautiful lush setting. Whether it is morning coffee on the Lani, golf out the back door, swimming out the front door, watching the sun set on the completely handicap accessible beach, yoga or exercise at the convenient Sea Trail Activity Center, everything is close including a wide variety of restaurants (menus available in the villa).

When we are looking for more adventure we head south to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (just 15 miles away) for daytime and nighttime entertainment. Sometimes we spend the day at Brookgreen Garden (just south of Myrtle Beach) enjoying a wide array of flowers and the outdoor art gallery. Also, in the same area, we explore the history of the old South at Hobcaw Barony.

Sometimes we head north to the charming seaside village of Southport, NC. After a pleasant lunch at Fishy Fishy, we board a ferryboat to either Fort Fisher to visit the NC Aquarium to learn about the local marine life or take a ferryboat to Bald Head Island to climb the Bald Head Lighthouse for a spectacular view of the area. Or how about a day deep sea fishing.

You will find a comprehensive collection of travel information available in the villa to help you plan your adventures. Enjoy!!

What makes this villa unique

The Beach front at Sunset Beach is handicap accessible to the Ocean and beach.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was nicely decorated and very comfy! We liked the location as it is close to the beach and to restaurants. We played golf, used the pool and went to the beach. About a 30 min drive to Myrtle Beach for more activities! The owners were very nice and easy to work with.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is a unique family beach on the eastern shores of NC. It is unique in that it doesn't face east, called a parallel beach by the locals running east and west with no dramatic drop off or huge waves making it easy for families to enjoy. The beaches are wide, quiet and competely handicap accessible, the fishing pier is a nice break any day or a short walk to visit the Kindred Spirit Box where you can go and write down your thoughts, hopes, secrets and dreams. Sea Trail accommodations give you an added benefit being able to play a round of golf, or two, or three, have lunch at the resort, swim, tennis and sauna privileges.
