(Summer 2023 prime dates completely booked before YE 2022.)

The updates never end! With our kids grown and flown, we no longer rent off season and have adored a lot more beach time. Of course, the more we are at the home, the more projects we take on. Spring 2023 - we moved the Intelligent TV above the mantle in the main room and purchased a new refrigerator. Fall 2023 - Replaced all the main room furnishings, lights, and rug (refreshed photos to come). We try our best to keep our photos current ... just know there may be slight differences from what you see and what is actually at the home. The home is ALWAYS better than the photos!

(Many homes advertised on Vacation Rental By Owner 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 for a rental to complete paperwork, collect payment, and for us to prepare the home for your stay. 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 us until your vacation actually begins. Note only the rental fee and cleaning/internet are paid to the owners. Vacation Rental By Owner collects and pays taxes, and has their own administration fee.

If your desired dates are not available 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.

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. Know that 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. Rental agreements can be scanned/emailed or sent via snail mail directly to the owners (contact details will be on the agreement). Your rental rate is determined at time of booking - we cannot adjust rates (up or down) post-booking. You are welcome to book multiple weeks during the summer; however, we do not offer a multiple week discount to the rental rate.

If you bring a boat or jet skis, there is a boat ramp on the mainland side of the Sunset Beach bridge. The canal behind the home and parts of the waterway from the Intracoastal to the canal are VERY shallow. We have a 17-foot skiff that clears during medium/high tide, but bigger watercraft may not. Low tide is difficult all around, especially if you are not familiar with the waterways. 2023 - dredging has taken place in Jinks Creek, parts of Tubbs Inlet, and parallel to Canal Street; the feeder canal dredging has begun, but the finger canals like ours will most likely not be dredged until Fall 2023/early 2024. We do not control the dredging schedule and must comply with local authorities once dredging begins - this could affect access to our dock and/or the adjacent waterways. There are no rental refunds in the event of dredging, if your boat does not clear properly, or if there is unforeseen damage to our dock preventing its use.

Dreaming of a peaceful hideaway to the North Carolina coast? We have owned this home since 2008 (and another home on the island since 2004). We are always doing something to keep the property updated and fresh. This is our home away from home and we want you to appreciate Sunset Beach just like our family does. 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 charmingly furnished. The kitchen is well-equipped. There are games and activities galore. Under the home you will find additional space to relax. Take the 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. Savor ocean, canal, and Intracoastal vistas from the decks and 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 have access to our phenomenal 'beach buggy' for painless 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). Look at the floorplan to ensure the bedroom and linens arrangements work for your group. Absolutely NO FAMILY PETS and NO smoking in this home or anywhere on the property. Please look at the photos carefully - 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.

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 mins. from North Myrtle Beach. Sunset Beach is one of North Carolina’s most calming beaches with 200+ feet of natural dunes before the first row of homes. The ambiance is peaceful and family-aligned, even during peak season. One of the Nation’s most gorgeous wildlife preserves – Bird Island - is a nice walk down beach. Visit the Kindred Spirit mailbox - an inspiration for Nicholas Sparks's latest novel "Every Breath." Observe deer, wild goats, sea turtles, and other sea life as well as savor 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.

Tips for getting the perfect vacation home experience:

When to visit Sunset Beach & When to reserve a Wilmington, NC rental home:

  • June, July, and August are high season in the Wilmington, NC area. Book your Wilmington, NC rental home in Fall or Spring months to enjoy warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Reserve your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacations during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some owners offer special rates for veterans and active duty military. Check with your host or property manager to see if special offers are available for your group.
  • Booking websites frequently offer guests an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide upon checking in. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, travel guide magazines contain discounts for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

Planning and picking your Wilmington, NC vacation home:

  • Choose vacation week and spending budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Island home On Canal, Near Beach-Book now for Summer 2024-Only 5 weeks left!! has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is regularly available on booking pages. If they are not listed, email the host before reserving the vacation property. Note that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull out couches in living rooms. You'll need to determine what is right for your family.
  • Visiting for a specific event or attraction? If so, use a map search to locate nearby rentals.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all necessary amenities are included before reserving a rental
  • Some properties allow pets, but some don't. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask your host about pet restrictions before booking.

During your stay:

  • We recommend storing the host's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Document any issues with the rental upon arrival, and immediately e-mail them to the property manager. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that can be useful if a dispute is filed.
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud vacationers bothering your peace and quiet. Use the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and places you would have not otherwise known!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can typically help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Lock your vacation home while you are out. Protect the owner's property and your things!
  • When it's time to leave, complete a final walk-through to confirm you didn't forget any personal items. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and scan for any damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the host is not available, ensure that you take pictures of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Leave feedback! Hosts rely on great ratings to propel future reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your feedback find their best vacation rental. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to solve it.
