About this Property

  • Sleeps 9
  • 5 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms
  • 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 newly 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. Appreciate dinners around the rustic kitchen table, drinks on the screened-in porch and impressive 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 completely 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 huge 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 sizable 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 T.V.s 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 peaceful 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 charming 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.

Strategies to get the very best Wilmington, NC vacation property experience:

When to visit Sunset Beach & When to reserve a Sunset Beach rental home:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months along the coast of NC. Booking your vacation rental in the Fall or Spring is our best tip for saving money on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of acceptable homes. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the high season.
  • Reserve 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 rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host if your family qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC area magazine upon arrival. If your rental doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitors guide magazines have coupons for local shops and restaurants.

Planning, picking, and booking your prefectrental home:

  • Choose vacation dates and max budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group requires. Beautiful Beach House on 40th Street with Views of Ocean has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rental home search.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always accessible on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, reach out to the property owner before booking your home. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds.
  • Looking for particular amenities? Most rental websites include search filters with amenity lists. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find the perfect rental.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. .
  • Remember to include your furry companions! Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask your host before booking, and study your agreement! Pet fees or may be applied to your agreement.

More tips for your visit:

  • Take a copy of the host's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental. Put the host's information in your smartphone.
  • Upon check-in, make note of any issues with the property and immediately contact the property manager. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are an incredible source for finding the best local scenic spots.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can often help. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Keep the property locked while you are gone! Don't let thieves spoil your family vacation.
  • At departure, complete a final walk-through to confirm you didn't forget any personal items. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did you have a wonderful stay? Most rental managers make it easy for vacationers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property management company was fantastic, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was out of order and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
