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 striking 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 comfortably 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 supplied, 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 enormous coffee table that is ideal for playing board games or assembling puzzles. For the digitally inclined, there is a sizable 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 included 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 gorgeous 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.

Finding the best vacation rental experience:

Getting the most from your budget:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in the Southport area. Reserving a rental home in Fall or Spring is our best tip for saving money on your vacation rental. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Southport 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 reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable vacation rentals are reserved very early. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your vacation is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation rental.
  • Some owners offer discounts for veterans. Ask your host or property manager if discounts are available for your group.
  • Booking websites frequently offer customers an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Many property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Southport area visitors guide magazines that include money-saving deals, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Southport visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • First, have your family decide on a vacation week and a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the configuration you need. Beautiful Beach House on 40th Street with Views of Ocean has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed types is usually accessible online. If they are not listed, email or call the host before you reserve the vacation home. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds. You will need to determine what is suitable for your family.
  • Are you visiting for a specific attraction or event? Try a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental.
  • If your group is vacationing with pets, you will need a pet-friendly property. Ask for specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Some property owners require additional pet deposits and fees.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and add a note with the instructions to your phone.
  • To ensure that damages aren't linked to your visit, inspect the rental for any problem areas when you arrive. Speak to the host immediately to report any pre-existing damages. If there is a dispute, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, stereo or WIFI setup. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent many problems.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant vacationers bothering your quiet neighborhood. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great restaurants and places you would've not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can often help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Lock your rental property while you're away! Don't let thieves ruin your trip.
  • Double-check the property to confirm that you've packed all personal items at check-out. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the rental one final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We advise inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host isn't available, take photos and video of the property to record its condition.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property owners rely on excellent reviews to drive new reservations. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your feedback find their best vacation rental. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.

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.

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.
