Sea La Vie -- Sunset Beach is a great property located on one of the most charming streets on the island. The interior of the home was freshly repainted and now provides a bright beachy ambiance for your calming family vacation. The home is in a peaceful location just a short walk to both the beach and the inter-coastal waterway. Savor dinners around the rustic kitchen table, drinks on the screened-in porch and handsome vistas of the sun setting over Bird Island from the second floor balcony.
The home has five bedrooms -- three upstairs and two downstairs -- each with a controllable ceiling fan. The ocean can be seen from the upstairs bedrooms. The two bedrooms on the front of the home (one downstairs and one upstairs) have a king bed and a queen bed, respectively, and sliding glass doors leading onto private balconies overlooking Bull Creek and the marshes of Bird Island. The two bedrooms on the back of the home (one downstairs and one upstairs) also have queen beds. As an added additional, there is a twin bed located in a modest bedroom on the back of the home.
There are two bathrooms (one downstairs and one upstairs) that are shared by the bedrooms on each level. For the more adventurous, there are two private outdoor showers located under the home.
The kitchen is entirely equipped with cookware, dishes, glassware, barware and silverware to effortlessly feed and entertain a event of twelve. The huge square kitchen table seats eight or more and is the ideal place for family dinners or late nighttime card games. The kitchen has a sizable refrigerator with ice maker, an electric range, a microwave, a dishwasher and and a garbage disposal. A coffee maker and single-serve coffee maker are included, as is a blender for smoothies or tropical beverages.
The roomy living area at the front of the home provides comfortable seating for both adults and kids. There is a huge coffee table that is ideal for playing board games or assembling puzzles. For the digitally inclined, there is a enormous screen T.V. with SmartTV and a Blu-ray/DVD player in the living room as well as smaller SmartTV TVs in all of the bedrooms. Wireless internet is supplied through a cable internet router.
Off the front of the living room through a set of sliding glass doors is a screened-in porch with patio furnishings. It is the ideal location to savor morning coffee or evening drinks. With the serenity of the Bird Island marsh just across the street, the peacefulness experienced while sitting in one of the rocking chairs reading a book is unparalleled.
Under the home is covered parking for cars, rocking chairs and open air space for kids to play. A new gas grille also provides a large platform for outdoor cooking.
Unlike other property units at Sunset Beach, Sea La Vie comes with many items that other owners require their tenants to rent or bring with them for their stay. For instance, we provide a number of beach chairs and a beach wagon for renters to use during their stay. (Linens, however, are not supplied with the rental).
The boardwalk beach access on 40th Street is just a few mins.' walk from Sea La Vie and has no stairs, making it one of the easiest walks to the ocean on the island. The home's close proximity to the ocean make it convenient to return to for bathroom breaks, lunch or a mid-day nap for the kids. The beach at the 40th Street access also is the least busy because there is no development beyond this point. Rolling surf and a gently sloping beach also make it a good place to learn to handle a surfboard.
At the center of Sunset Beach Island is a modest village of stores. You can take a leisurely walk from Sea La Vie to get ice cream, Italian ice, snacks and island souvenirs. You also can grab a casual lunch overlooking the ocean at the Sunset Beach Pier Grille. Finally, if you need need something during the day, there is a modest grocery store on the island.
For those who prefer fresh water entertainment, Bull Creek and the waterways through the marsh beyond 40th Street provide calming areas to kayak or stand-up paddle board. Boats and jet skis are available for rental from marinas in close by Ocean Isle or North Myrtle Beach.
For golfers, the area surrounding Sunset Beach has a wide variety of courses challenging to all levels of players. Given the number of courses, it is rarely a problem to find a tee time. There are even putt putt courses for little golfers to appreciate.
You will also enjoy the many eateries that are within a short drive of the home. In addition to the many local seafood eateries, there are superb Italian eateries, Mexican eateries, continental eateries and even a Jamaican restaurant.
Finally, for those looking for more excitement, the bright lights of Myrtle Beach are just over the border in South Carolina. With outlet shopping, eateries, live music, carnival rides, miniature golf and the boardwalks, there is something to entertain every member of your family.
