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 amazing 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 generous 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 fast snacks for the beach or a blissful meal. There are ceiling fans throughout to make your stay as appealing 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 calming 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 peaceful and provides definitely impressive unobstructed vistas of the sea, marsh and the meticulous 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 never-ending 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.

Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to visit. Many official tourism bureaus will send promotional travel guides with special deals for lodging, dining and attractions. These guides provide a great start to your rental home search.
  • Are your trip dates changeable? The off-peak seasons may offer phenomenal rates on daily rentals.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Several rental companies offer rate reductions to vets and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to ask property management company to see if your visiting gang qualifies for a markdown.
  • Is there a particular activity you are most looking forward to ? Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the activities and points of interest you are most interested in.
  • Consider purchasing trip insurance with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, offers travellers reimbursement of their travel expenses for any nights missed a result of medical emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unforeseen hotel room stay or additional gas.

The Rental Process

First-timers are often times surprised at the range and wide variety of short-term vacation rentals available in the Southport area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of international search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Virtually all rentals in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local property management agencies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, equipment and practical experience to provide easy operational administration on behalf of the property owner..

Seasoned Southport vacationers have discovered a few tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rental properties, however most beginners will be delighted to realize that several "techniques" are in plain sight, if you understand how to search.

Where to find and reserve a great vacation home:

Do you think "'Unforgettable'! LOCATION! 4th FROM OCEANFRONT, OCEAN, SUNSET & SUNRISE VIEWS!" is the best rental home for your next getaway? Read this check list to ensure it fits all of your preferences.

Search Early and Often

Like many renowned vacation spots, In Southport the best rental properties are booked early. Reserving your rental property 6-12 months in advance is highly recommended, when possible. Many households decide to start their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Find your Spot and Establish Dates

Consensus can often be complicated among members of the family, but as soon as this challenging part is complete everything will begin to drop in place.

Exactly How Much Rental home Do You Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Try to remember that most properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for the family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available online. If not, communicate with the property owner before you reserve the home.

What Exactly Are You Willing to Pay?

Make sure that "'Unforgettable'! LOCATION! 4th FROM OCEANFRONT, OCEAN, SUNSET & SUNRISE VIEWS!" suits your price range *during your desired dates*. If several individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, confirm that each group knows their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to chip in. Most rental agreements call for a single person to be responsible for the whole reservation.

Property Features

What home features is the group interested in? Do you just desire a vacation home with a swimming pool, jacuzzi or volleyball court? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or nightlife? Will the unit have bikes and beach toys available for use as part of your stay? Create a list of priority amenities to facilitate filter your search.

Accessability

Do some members of your group have specialized needs? Make certain to remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Fido Approved

Are you or other people in the family travelling with a dog? Animal guidelines are different at each property. Study descriptions carefully. Read your contract very carefully! Fees may apply when animals are added. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

It Is Time to Search

A number of websites exist to match renters with rental owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local property management companies. Local rental home management companies proudly offer an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you have identified your dream rental, double check to make sure your vacation dates are available.

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season trip, try asking for an additional night. The off-season offers your greatest chance to make a deal for a lower rate.

Study the Contract

Read the full contract and make certain you fully understand who is responsible for:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Phone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the regular rate, visitors have to pay state taxes when renting "'Unforgettable'! LOCATION! 4th FROM OCEANFRONT, OCEAN, SUNSET & SUNRISE VIEWS!", as well as various other fees that may be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including an animal fee, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private swimming pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Cancelling your Vacation Property

Be sure to understand the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which ordinarily costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of your base vacation rental rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or additional gas.

Book It

When you believe you've identified "the one", begin the booking process. You will likely have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Where to Get Help

Put the rental manager's contact information into your cell phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your trip.

Good job on booking your rental home! You're on the way to a fantastic vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any damage right after you arrive. If you find damages, or if fixes are required get in touch with the home manager without delay. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will probably be helpful.
  • Ask questions. Should there be any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, property access, swimming pool operations, etc... we suggest you ask the rental home manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of problems.
  • Don't forget to respect your nearby neighbors. Residents will likely be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking rules can make a trip a lot more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Locals can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Make certain to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the home locked up when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep all the rooms in the home for left-behind items. Check bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, porches, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • When your things are all out, do a walk-through of the rental home to make certain no property damage occurred during your stay. We advise walking through with the rental manager wherever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your stay? Virtually all vacation rental websites ask for feedback after your stay . Rental owners and property managers will thank you for favorable reviews. If anything went wrong, we recommend being understanding but straightforward with regards to your experience. Top owners and managers will work hard to solve the issue.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a vacation recap meeting with the members of your group. Did they feel about the rental choice? If everything was wonderful, next year's trip planning is going to be relatively easy. Maybe the rental wasn't quite right, and you will better know how to refine your search for the next trip.

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.
