AVAILABILITY - Summer/August 10-17 available (as of 4/25/2024) - full week only.

HOME DETAILS: Updates never end! Spring 2024 - Intelligent TV now above the mantle in main room, new and roomy refrigerator, replaced main room furnishings, lights, tables, and area rug. Screened porch facelift in progress and scheduled to be done by summer units. AND the canal has been dredged! We try to keep our photos current ... just know there may be slight differences between the Vacation Rental By Owner photos and the actual home. The home is ALWAYS better than the photos!

RENTAL PROCESS: You rent directly from the Owners. (Many Vacation Rental By Owner homes are managed by commercial property managers.)

SUMMER (June, July, August) - WEEKLY units ONLY, Saturday to Saturday, NO exceptions. We are not a hotel. Please allow AT LEAST a 5-day advance notice to complete paperwork, collect payment, and to prepare the home for your stay.

PAYMENT PROCESS: The ONLY payment method is credit card via Vacation Rental By Owner's secure payment process. We do not receive or store your credit card information. Vacation Rental By Owner holds ALL funds from the owners until your vacation actually begins. Only the rental fee and cleaning/internet costs are distributed to the owners. Vacation Rental By Owner collects/pays taxes and assesses an administration fee.

AVAILABLE DATES: If your desired dates are not open on the Vacation Rental By Owner calendar, they are already reserved by another guest. We will not negotiate switching vacation dates with another confirmed rental.

HOW TO BOOK: To secure a vacation reservation, submit a Vacation Rental By Owner online inquiry. From such, we will confirm pricing and share the rental agreement. We WILL NOT send you a payment request. Guests must initiate booking via Vacation Rental By Owner. No vacation is guaranteed until BOTH a signed rental agreement AND deposit payment are received – prices and availability are subject to change until your paperwork is processed. If your credit card is declined, you have a short window of time with Vacation Rental By Owner to make payment, otherwise the vacation period becomes open for others to book. Rental agreement can be scanned/emailed or sent via snail mail directly to the owners (contact details on the agreement). Your rental rate is determined at time of booking - rates cannot be adjusted (up or down) post-booking. Multi-week bookings are welcome in the summer; however, there is not a discount to the rental rate.

BOATING: If you bring a boat or jet ski(s), there is a boat ramp on the mainland side of the Sunset Beach bridge. Recent dredging (2024) in Tubbs Inlet, waterways parallel to Canal Street, and all feeder canals - including ours - have improved water access. We have a 17-foot skiff that clears during medium/high tide, but bigger watercraft may be more challenged. There are no rental refunds in the event your boat does not clear properly or if there is unforeseen damage to our dock preventing its use.

GENERAL INFO: Dreaming of a peaceful hideaway to the North Carolina coast? We have vacationed at Sunset Beach since early 1990s. We purchased this home in 2008 (and owned a separate beach bungalow on the island for many years before). We are always doing something to keep the property refreshed and fresh. This is our home away from home and we want you to savor Sunset Beach just like our family. The property is decent sized for a modest family hideaway (with grandparents, cousins, or friends).

The home has an open floor plan on the main level and is gorgeously furnished. The kitchen is well-equipped. There are games and activities galore. Under the home you will find additional space to relax. Take the well-appreciated canoe or one of the two kayaks down the canal to the Intracoastal waterway. The screened porch provides a great venue for an afternoon board game or dining al fresco. Appreciate ocean, canal, and intracoastal vistas from the decks and many windows. Sun decks on the main and upper levels provide alternative spots to the beach. We expanded the original front deck and have solid wood Adirondack chairs on all three levels. Public beach access is ~300 feet from the home. Guests may appreciate our marvelous 'beach buggy' for simple transport of beach essentials.

We welcome units from families and responsible adults over the age of 25. The home sleeps a max. of 8 people (adults and any kids traveling with you). Review the floorplan carefully to ensure the bedroom/linens arrangements work for your group. Absolutely NO FAMILY PETS and NO smoking in this home or anywhere on the property. Our home backs up to water and has many decks and interior open railings. Keep this in mind if you are visiting with younger kids.

ABOUT SUNSET BEACH: Sunset Beach is the Southern-most barrier island on the North Carolina coast. It is a short drive to Calabash ('Seafood Capital of the South') and ~20-min. drive to North Myrtle Beach. Sunset Beach is one of North Carolina’s most peaceful beaches with 200+ feet of natural dunes before the first row of homes. The ambiance is cozy and family-aligned, even during peak season. One of the Nation’s most impressive wildlife preserves – Bird Island – is a nice walk (2.5 miles from the home) down beach. Visit the Kindred Spirit mailbox – an inspiration for Nicholas Sparks's novel "Every Breath." Observe deer, wild goats, sea turtles, and other sea life as well as enjoy miles of undeveloped dunes and marsh areas.

If you are a golfer, you don't have to travel far to enjoy dozens of courses. We are close to many local conference centers (Sea Trail is one), making our home a nice alternative to hotel lodging.

Wilmington, NC rental property booking tips:

Money saving strategies:

  • Book your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules often open a year in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacations during Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • To get the most suitable rental within your budget, we strongly suggest reserving in Spring or Fall. You'll enjoy lower rates, greater selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of large crowds at the beach and popular attractions. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Some hosts offer special rates for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your property manager if discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer guests an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for additional information.
  • Find a copy of your local visitors guide upon checking in. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guides contain offers and deals for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

Finding the perfect vacation home:

  • Select vacation week and budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your group needs. Island home On Canal, Near Beach - Aug 10-17, 2024 available has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts & types is almost always accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, contact the property manager before booking the rental. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to work out what bed configuration is optimal for your family.
  • If your group is bringing pets, you must book a property that allows animals. Make sure to ask for specifics on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Usually, property owners charge additional pet fees.
  • Looking for unique amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters with amenity lists. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for persons with a disability. .

Advice for a smooth stay:

  • Store the owner's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, elevator or washer/dryer. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents quite a few difficulties.
  • Lock your vacation home while you are out. Protect your property!
  • During check-in, record any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are a terrific resource to find the best local scenic spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Neighbors can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, walk through the rental property to confirm you've collected everything. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the rental one final time and look for damages to contents or the property itself. We advise inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the manager isn't available, remember to take photographs of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a wonderful vacation? Most rental managers make it easy for travelers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property management company was terrific, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was defective and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
