  • Cottage

Panacea is a mid-island, pet and family friendly bungalow on the peaceful end of Sunset Beach. A short three min. walk gets you to the beach, over the elevated boardwalk that accepts vistas into the broad dunes that serve as home to deer, rabbits and sea turtle nests. Throw down your beach towel and appreciate one of the widest beaches on the east coast at low tide with great puddles to lounge, splash or build sand castles. Turn to the right towards Bird Island to find the fabled Kindred Spirit mailbox and leave your own message and continue on to discover the rock jetty that lines the inland waterway. Or turn to the left and you're headed toward the pier, great for people watching and getting an old fashioned orange sherbet push-up treat.
Panacea has been refreshed with modern but not too fussy beach décor throughout, with open floor plan and roomy bedrooms creating a comfortable and welcoming ambiance. Bedroom One has a king bed, two nighttime stands, dresser, TV and bench. Bedroom Two has a queen bed flanked by nightstands, dresser and mirror, bench and wing chair. Bedroom Three has queen bed, dresser, and side chair. Bedroom Four is the twin bedroom with a chest of drawers also serving as a nighttime stand, TV and full length mirror. The living area has a full sized couch with recliners on the ends, recliner appreciate seat and a single reclining chair (sounds like a lot of calming going on!). End tables and coffee table provide a convenient place for your favorite snack or drink. The dining table seats 6 but can be expanded with additional leaf stored in twin bedroom closet, additional seating with four stools at the bar. The kitchen has all the expected appliances--refrigerator, oven range, dishwasher, microwave. Mr Coffee Maker and Keurig, electric can opener, 4 slot toaster/bagel, toaster oven all available. The laundry area homes the washer, dryer, expandable drying rack, broom, dust pan (all you need since housekeeping is included!) with board games and puzzles on the shelf. The back deck sports adore seat, chairs and a picnic table. The enormous front porch with plenty of seating (2 loveseats, 4 chairs, 2 coffee tables and two chair high bistro table set for morning coffee) is the ideal place to gather and savor those that matter most.
Under the home provides shaded parking but if you back your cars out a little sidewalk chalk can create a space for budding artists or a game of hop-scotch. The outside shower has a bench, hooks for towels and a hand-held shower head with great water pressure. A bin MAY have body boards, rafts, beach chairs and a variety of sand toys and a fat tired aluminum wagon with fishing pole holders will make it painless to cart whatever you want to the beach, just be sure to go down to the 40th street access (no steps). And after a day on the beach if you want to prepare out, a 3 burner propane gas grille is at the ready for burgers, steak or whatever you caught fishing.

This Panacea is a definite cure for those needing some R&R!

Interior amenities include cable TV, complimentary WIFI, three TVs, DVD player and CD player/stereo. Linens are supplied. We were ahead of the game as far as safety/sanitizing by having a UV filter added to our HVAC system numerous years ago.

Outside offers a 3 burner propane gas grille, sundeck, covered parking, outdoor shower, and covered porch. This home is pet friendly - so bring your best friends! Gates at the top of the steps ensure kid and pet security.

Wilmington, NC vacation rental tips:

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

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in coastal NC. Book your Wilmington, NC vacation in the Spring or Fall to enjoy gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
  • The sooner you can book a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The best properties are reserved very early. Booking your rental home six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and book your vacation rental.
  • Property management companies sometimes offer discounts or promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your property manager if special discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Property management companies usually offer their guests an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed days as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, visitors guides contain money saving offers on local tours and attractions.

Make a plan and choose your prefectrental home:

  • Choose a designated group leader, select your trip dates, and select a spending budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Pet Friendly Cottage On Sunset Beach. Spacious, Comfortable And Ideally Located! has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is commonly accessible on booking websites. If not, email the property owner before you book the rental. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which usually includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • If there's a particular Wilmington, NC beach you are enamored with, look for rentals that are either near by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before booking
  • Traveling with pets? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or applied to your contract.

More considerations:

  • Add the owner's phone number to your smartphone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Document any issues with the property during check in, and immediately send them to the owner. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that can be very helpful if a dispute is filed.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often a fantastic source for finding the best local beaches and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to order delicious takeout, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Lock your rental property while you are away! Don't let thieves spoil your holiday.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, take a walk through the property to reconfirm you've collected all of your things. Check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and keep an eye out for damages to contents or the property itself. We advise walking through with the host whenever possible. If the manager is not available, remember to take pictures of the property to record its condition.
  • After your trip, leave feedback! Hosts rely on great feedback to stimulate more reservations. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other families will will be grateful for your review and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.

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.

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.
