About this Property

'Unforgettable' beach bungalow is a delightfully finished and refreshed 4 bedroom 2 bath home. We are located on the enticing west end of the island only four homes back from sea front! You can see the beach access from our bungalow. It is shown in one of our photos taken from our bungalow. It is not so busy here on the west end. We are not near the busy pier area where all the people come from town to park and go to the beach. We have just finished our new high rise outdoor space with incredible vistas of the sea, sunset and sunrise. We have also added a gate with a lock on it for safety. We have one of the few cottages that has a paved driveway which is great for the children feet! We have a enormous area under bungalow to relax in the chairs or for children to run around. Our bungalow has high end furnishings, designer linens and quality beds to make sure you wake up feeling great after a good nighttime sleep. The kitchen is thoroughly supplied so that you can prepare speedy snacks for the beach or a comfortable meal. There are ceiling fans throughout to make your stay as calming as possible. Each bedroom has its own TV and DVR and there is also a TV and DVR in the den area. If you prefer to be outdoor, you can savor a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise on our screened front porch, complete with rocking chairs and picnic table, or have a cold drink and watch the sunset off the back outdoor space.

Outside we have a huge shower and changing area, two picnic tables, paved driveway, a fenced back yard and gas grille.

This beach rental accepts you to check in Sunday and depart Sunday. We think this very helps with all the traffic on the highway and it is not so crowed at the grocery stores. It also gives you a day to pack if you work. We hope this will work for you.

Sunset Beach is located on the southernmost barrier island on the North Carolina coastline. It is a peaceful three mile long island with wide powdery white sand beaches that is unspoiled by commercial development. Sunset Beach is widely viewed as one of the cleanest, family aligned beaches on the east coast. Its white sandy beaches are a great place to sunbathe, walk, ride a bicycle, jog or just sit and relax while watching the boats and the dolphins come and go. Bird Island is also located on the west end of the island. Bird Island is a pristine, undeveloped 1300 acre state preserve that is home to loggerhead turtles and the Purple Sandpiper found only on Bird Island. This end of the beach is very cavernous, peaceful and calming and provides definitely striking unobstructed vistas of the sea, marsh and the superb sunsets for which Sunset is known.

Sunset is centrally located including straighforward access to Calabash, 'The Seafood Capital of the World', just two miles away, where you can feast on the local seafood, buy new shrimp off of one of the shrimp boats or charter a boat and catch your own dinner. North Myrtle Beach is just 15 miles away, Myrtle Beach 25 miles away and historic Wilmington is roughly 45 miles away. You can catch a world class show in one of the many theaters in Myrtle Beach or you can tour a battleship in Wilmington. For the shopper there are countless opportunities including Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach and two Tanger Outlet centers. If golfing is your thing the area is also considered the 'Golf Capital of the World'. Sea Trail, The Thistle, Lions Paw, Tigers Eye, Panthers Run, Crow Creek, Oyster Bay, The Pearl and Sandpiper are just some of the courses within 15 mins. of Sunset Beach.

General Rental Advice

Newcomers are oftentimes shocked at the range and variety of short-term rental properties available in the Southport area. With such a big selection, guests are sure to find a property that suits their expectations and spending budget.

The majority of rental homes in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by experienced local property management companies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their home, management companies are instrumental in helping vacationers with reserving, checking-in, housekeeping services, as well as maintenance issues that may occur.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have identified a number of tips and tricks over the years with regards to renting vacation homes, however most novices will be delighted to know that several "tricks" are in plain sight, if you understand where they should search.

Where to find and reserve the perfect rental home:

Before you decide to book "'Unforgettable'! LOCATION! 4th FROM OCEANFRONT, OCEAN, SUNSET & SUNRISE VIEWS! ", examine our brief collection of considerations.

Start Your Search Early

Southport rental homes start booking very early. Reserving your rental 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental home..

Choose your Place and Travel Week

Agreement can often be difficult between members of the family, but once this complicated part is complete everything will start to drop in place.

Exactly How Much Rental Do You Really Need?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that that most rentals list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to figure out what is suitable for your company. Most rental listings will outline each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Make a Budget

Does your preferred rental property fit your budget during that prime Summer week? If several individuals or families are sharing the cost, confirm that each party understands their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute. One individual in your party must be given the task of collecting payments and acknowledging responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is your group trying to find? Is a screened-in porch a necessity? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or nightlife? Are linens offered with the rental, or will you need to bring your own? Make a list of priority amenities to guide filter your search.

Accessability

Do individual members of your party have special needs? Make sure to remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Fido Approved

Do not forget to include your companion! Although a number of vacation homes allow household pets, rules and fees vary per rental. Examine your contract thoroughly! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

Searching the Internet

. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental management companies. Local rental home management companies proudly offer a superior rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to be sure the home has everything you need. If it is something is missing, the rental home management company may know of comparable properties that fit your preferences and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season stay, try asking for an additional night. The off-season offers your best chance to negotiate a lower rate.

Read the Total Agreement

Discover which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

Trip Insurance

Be sure to understand the cancellation policy prior to booking. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which frequently costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the standard vacation rental rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any nights missed a result of personal hospital emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen motel stay or additional gas.

Book your Rental

As soon as you think you've found "the one", start the reservation process. You'll probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Know Who to Call

Put the rental manager's contact info into your phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your trip.

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • To assure no damages are associated with your stay, create a record of any trouble spots of the property. Get in touch with the rental manager immediately to report your observations.
  • You may need instructions for a fireplace, TV or spa tub. Get in touch with your home manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save hours of difficulties.
  • Please be respectful of the community. Permanent residents more often than not live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Local people can often point you in the right direction.
  • Remember to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Make sure you've packed all of your things. Sweep every room in the home for left-behind items. Check bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Once your things are all out, perform a walk-through of the rental to make sure that no property damage occurred during your stay. We suggest walking through with the rental manager wherever possible (this may not be possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Most rental home web sites ask for comments after your stay . Property owners and property managers will thank you for favorable ratings. If something went wrong, we recommend being kind but genuine regarding your stay. Top owners and managers will work hard to correct the situation.
