It's official, the National Geographic Society has identified Sunset Beach, in Brunswick County, NC, one of the World's Finest Beaches.

If you're looking for a peaceful, family aligned beach, stop looking--you just found it! Sunset Beach is a peaceful, barrier island with the widest beach strand in the state. Our focus is visiting families and you must be at least 21 years of age to rent the home. The island is a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community with little commercial development.

The home is roughly 400 ft from the dunes; an elevated boardwalk then leads you over the protected dunes directly to the beach strand.

The Holy Mackerel has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The home is designed with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on each side of the home with the living/dining area and kitchen in the center. This area was modernized in 2020 with a vaulted wooden ceiling, recessed can lights, wainscoting, and paint. Each side has a privacy door separating it from the center living area. This arrangement is ideal for two families.

Each bedroom is equipped with cable TV and DVD/Blue Ray player. Bedrooms 1 and 2 have a queen bed and bedrooms 3 and 4 have two twin beds in each bedroom.

The kitchen has been newly refreshed with all new stainless steel appliances. The new stove features a convection oven with glass prepare-top. The dining table seats 8.

The home is elevated and offers covered parking for 2 cars. Additional parking for 2 more cars is available in the driveway. A laundry area with front load washer and dryer is located on the ground level.

An outside shower with hot and cold water is located under the home and a cold water, basin sink is adjacent to wash out sandy bathing suits.

A generous sized, heavy wooden picnic table is on the concrete slab under the home with an outside grille just steps away.

Bed and bath linens are not furnished. Rental linens are available thru a local independent business. Ask for their contact information.

Strategies to get the best vacation property experience:

Sticking to your rental home budget:

  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer rental homes during holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Sunset Beach. To book the most suitable rental home within budget, we recommend reserving in the Spring or Fall. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at Southport restaurants, tours, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer months.
  • Hosts and Property managers sometimes offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Ask your property manager if discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Property managers frequently offer guests an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
  • Many rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Southport area travel guides which often include special deals, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship with the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Southport area magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Planning and picking your prefectrental home:

  • Begin by selecting your trip dates and a maximum budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Enjoy the WIDEST beach in NC has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is usually available on booking websites. If they are not listed, reach out to the host before you book the rental. Remember that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but some do not. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the property management company about pets before booking.
  • If there's a specific Southport destination you are crazy about, look for rentals that are either near by, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Take a copy of the host's contact number and check in/check out procedures for your .
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, A/V setup or washer/dryer. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent lots of problems.
  • Keep the property locked while you are gone! Don't let crooks ruin your trip.
  • Upon arrival, note any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the host. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Be a good neighbor. Often times, surrounding homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before you drive away, walk through the rental property to reconfirm you've collected all personal belongings. Re-check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Please make sure to walk through the property a final time and keep an eye out for damages to contents or the property itself. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the manager isn't available, ensure that you take video and pictures of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • After your trip, leave feedback! Hosts rely on great ratings to propel new bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your review find their best vacation rental. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
