The complex is on the mainland directly across the street from the intercostals waterway. We are only two miles to the barrier island and beach where a new causeway takes you to Sunset Beach Island and the beach. There are beautiful views of the intercoastal waterway and marsh along the Shoreline Drive road along the way.

Sunset Beach 'is the smallest and quietest of three barrier islands which together, make up the modestly famed South Brunswick Islands. An uncommon coastal scene, this small sequestered island is crowned with a naturally wide, gently sloping, white sand beach and a shroud of undisturbed sand dunes. This unadulterated setting is a natural habitat and nesting ground for the abundant coastal wildlife, including the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtle and beloved Wood Stork.' (From The Town of Sunset Beach website.)

There is plenty of public parking once on the island and several access points to the right along the beach front road. Sunset Beach features a fishing pier where for a small fee you can fish or enjoy the scenery. You can also enjoy riding your bike, or a rented one from the beach front store on the beach, to the rocky jetty at the end of the barrier island.

Three miles to the south is Calabash, NC, known for its many seafood restaurants and has the title of “Seafood Capital of the World”! The shopping is fantastic as well and you can visit the docks to purchase fresh seafood.

North Myrtle Beach is a about a 15 minute drive south along Rt 17. Myrtle Beach is known for hundreds of fine dining establishments, live entertainment, dancing, amusement parks, miniature golf, and shopping. Notable places to check out are Broadway at the Beach and Bearfoot Landing. Park and walk around these family fun areas for shopping, live entertainment, and dining with a theme park atmosphere.

Please contact us if you would like additional information via e-mail or phone. We look forward to having you as our guest!!

About Mark McDonald

Thank you for your interest in renting our condo. I am a high school teacher and my wife is a nurse in the Doylestown area of PA...which is north of Phila in Bucks County.

Mark McDonald purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mark McDonald chose Coastal North Carolina

After vacationing in the Sunset Beach area for several years we decided to buy a condo our family, friends, and guests can use year around. We enjoy the area and plan on spending some of our retirement time in Sunset Beach.

What makes this condo unique

The golf, ocean, and sea food are fantastic! It really recharges the batteries to spend time in the Sunset Beach area. It has become are 2nd home to get away from the fast pace of the North East.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mark,

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at Sunset. I hope we left everything as it should be. We very much enjoyed your condo. It was clean, comfortable and convenient and what a beautiful setting. No gator sightings, but we did see turtles and a blue heron on the pond and the weather couldn't have been better!

Thank you for checking on us. It is nice to have owners who care. As I said before, we tried to take good care of your condo. You can be sure we will recommend you to friends and will contact you if we find ourselves going back to Sunset. It had been 20 years since we were last there. It is just as beautiful as we remembered and makes us want to go back.

Thank you again.

Beautiful, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience. Only problem was our trip was too short! Loved the property and location. Very spacious and so cool to see the alligators! Took me 8 mins to drive to the beach and it's a pretty drive. Mark is always available and so helpful. Only thing is that we would have loved it if there was a blender and the can opener is on its last legs. I would definitely come back!

We spent March at this comfortable, cozy condo on our first trip to Sunset Beach but will definitely be going back next year! The condo was just as described and on the ground floor which was perfect for our small dog. The area is beautiful with plenty of golf, restaurants and shopping. If you like the more active touristy attractions Myrtle Beach is only a short drive. We were even treated to a visit from Brutus, one of the alligators that visits the property. Mark is extremely easy to work with and he even called to make sure that everything was ok! The care and concern for the condo is evident as it is like your home away from home.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family was blessed by spending a month at this wonderful condo. It was a relaxing retreat, as we enjoyed the pond and its wildlife. Sunset Beach has become my favorite NC beach, with its wide strand and easy accessibility. We also enjoyed the pool, the Calabash seafood, and a quick trip to Wilmington. The condo is very nice and very comfortable. We could not have asked for more!

Wonderful stay at Sunset Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Just spent 3 months at this great condo. Pretty, peaceful setting. Condo very comfortable with everything anyone would need in kitchen, etc. Love the towns of Calabash and Little River, SC. North Myrtle Beach maybe a 20 minute drive. Beach at Sunset is gorgeous! Some really fun places to go are Boundary House, The Grapevine, Callahans, and Vereen Nature Center in Calabash. In Little River, we had so much fun at Patio's and Key West music and great intracoastal scenery. LaBelle Amie Vineyard is our favorite with lots of live outdoor music, wine tasting, a beautiful gift shop. Lots to do in North Myrtle Beach/Myrtle Beach. Found the best pizza this time at Mellow Mushroom in North Myrtle. Great appetizers at Martinis in North Myrtle. Did not get to see resident alligator but saw others down the road near golf course ponds :) Great stay!
