Welcome to your room at the beach! Located on the west side of the island, opposite Bird Island, and an easy walk to the beach. We love to share our small, but comfortable home and offer 2 clean QN bedrooms with a private bath in between with a continental breakfast from 8-10. Traveling alone - our charges are by the person, not by the room. The nightly fee for your spouse or friend is slightly discounted. Don't want to share your house? We manage several private homes too: links are below

The space
Easy on and off the island, the Beach and Bird Island Inlet are just a short walk or kayak! If they aren't in the shop, we have two beach bikes and a tandem kayak that we'll share for a casual tour of the island and Bird Island too. With seating under the house and a great outdoor shower, you're welcome to come and go as you please. Simplicity is the key word!

Where you’ll be

Sunset Beach, North Carolina, United States

From Sept thru May, the island is gorgeous, certainly quieter and the best kept secret! Across the inter-coastal and under the new bridge, plan to visit the Old Sunset Beach Swing Bridge, now a museum and interpretive center and through October this year, there is a Farmer's Market every Thursday in the Sunset Beach Park. The pier offers fishing as well as a great perspective of the eco-system. Octoberfest is coming soon along with some great fiching contests. Come for a quick overnight, or a couple of days, any day of the week. We'll be happy to see you.

SB is the last barrier reef island in North Carolina - situated just about half way between Wilmington NC and Myrtle Beach SC. We are pleased to have the opportunity to host several private homes for our neighbors and just by scrolling down, you can learn a bit more about each home, but if you're traveling alone or with a companion, and don't need a whole house to your selves, sharing our home is the best value for you -- and we just love meeting new people from all walks of life and from around the world! Our house is compact, very clean and just a short walk to the beach. Though a small home, we're delighted to share it with you and promise not to impose too much! You'll have your privacy with one or two bed rooms, a hallway with private bath on the opposite side of the house. Common areas include, the dining room, front reading room, as well as the upper deck or seating areas under the house. Across the street you'll see Bird Island, a State sanctuary, and Madd Inlet which leads to the Inter-coastal waterway. You're welcome to visit, kayak, hike or just relax and enjoy the quiet. This is a great place to stay if you need a quick respite from work, need some down time before your golf match, want to catch some fish or simply stroll on the beach. We've got the best location for that beach wedding you're attending. We have two queen size bedrooms and limit the number in your party to 2 guests in total - we don't double book with anyone else, so it will just be you and your companion (or not). There are plenty of outdoor common areas too, both under the house with an outdoor shower and an upper deck. Happy to provide beach chairs, umbrella's, beach towels and beach games, so come as you are! If you don't want a share and prefer your own private home, as mentioned above, we manage and host several homes for our neighbors, on Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach. We have 2-4 bedroom houses that sleep 4-9 people comfortably, depending on the home. Check out these Airbnb properties we manage for our neighbors: SUNSET BEACH: -" HAMMOCK HOUSE" a 4 bedroom/2 bath, located on the west end of the island with distant views of the Intercoastal, just 11 houses from beach access and on the same street as, "SUMMERFELL...Summer is Coming", a 2 bedroom/ 1 bath, located on the west end of the island and 5 houses from beach access. If you have an overflow, or need a quiet house, these two rent often to families with parents or grandparents who want to be alone but still close. Make sense? "The Moose is Loose on Sunset Beach" is a 4 bedroom / 3 bath located on the west end of the island, just 4 houses from beach access. "Member- berries Place", a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath canal home located 7 houses from beach access. Kayaks, Bikes and bikes provided with plenty of driveway for a trailer for your flat bottom boat or fishing kayak. OCEAN ISLE BEACH: Sho do Lovett, a canal home with dock for a 27' boat is a split level home perfect for multi generational families. Just sayin'... Out of town business and SB Town activities keeps us coming and going, but we're quite grounded here at the beach. We love hosting and meeting so many people from around the world. We're grateful for the new found friendships and look forward to sharing our little piece of paradise here. Just a few specifics: Mark is a fun loving, gregarious type who enjoys fishing, golfing, grilling and knows all the right watering holes for whatever strikes your fancy. Janet will be your primary host and local concierge for any add ons you may want to secure...like a golf carts, bikes, kayaks, umbrellas, wagons and we can even arrange for a catered dinner by our Master Chef friend Jeff or recommend a local eatery to have dinner on the table when you arrive or perhaps on your last night... but, you get the picture! We do look forward to meeting you one day soon and hope you'll feel welcome to stay a while!

During your stay

House Share: As much or as little as you like, but remember, you'll be sharing a small home so we'll be "close up and personal" -- but certainly, you'll have your privacy!

For the Private Homes we manage on Sunset Beach: We walk you through on the inbound and on the outbound, and will check in with you half way through your stay, just to be sure all is well. Otherwise, we trust you to have a wonderful holiday!
