About this Property

  • Private vacation home

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.

Vacation rental home tips:

When to go & When to reserve a rental home:

  • Book your vacation home in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer months. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
  • Book your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacation rentals during holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some property managers offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Check with your host or property manager to see if discounts are available for your group before you book.
  • Booking websites usually offer renters an option to purchase vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for days missed as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
  • Often, management companies and vacation rental houses supply Wilmington, NC area travel guide magazines that include special offers, either offered independently by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Use filters to narrow your rental search:

  • Select a group leader, select your dates, and choose a budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family needs. Beautiful Beach House on 40th Street with Views of Ocean has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is regularly accessible on booking pages. If they are not listed, reach out to the property management company before reserving the rental. Remember that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches and bunk beds.
  • Visiting for a specific attraction? Try a map search to browse nearby rentals.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • Are you traveling with furry, four-legged family members? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Additional pet fees or charges applied to your contract.

Have a wonderful stay:

  • Be sure you get the owner's phone number and check in/check out procedures for your rental home. We recommend storing the host's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • During arrival, make note of any damages to the property and immediately contact the owner. Record all coorespondence.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, television set or washer/dryer. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents a lot of issues.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll increase your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors can be an excellent resource to find the best local attractions.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order delicious takeout, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Lock your vacation home while you're away. Protect your property!
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, take a walk through the rental property to make sure you've collected everything. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a terrific time? Most rental management companies make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental and/or property management company was wonderful, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was inoperable and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
