There are also two clubhouses which feature a full-service golf shop, lounge and snack bar.

For parties of 5 or less people staying in condo there is complimentary access to owners pool and jacuzzi area with gas grill and parking in Sea Trail lot near the beach.There is a $25 deposit for access card that is returned when the card is returned. Pool area is an approximately 5 minute walk from the condo.

The Village Activity Center (VAC) is available for a nominal charge ($80 a week or $20 per day for a family of six, for example). The VAC is only a 3 minute walk from our condominium and hosts a variety of activities. The outdoor pool with kiddie pool and heated whirlpool and its lush, tropical setting is perfect for relaxing. The indoor heated whirlpool, heated pool, and sauna are perfect for those cooler days. Take time to visit the full service spa for a massage with a licensed therapist. If you don't want to take a break from your exercise routine while you are away, take advantage of the VAC fitness center. Fitness classes are also scheduled year round. For the children, the VAC has planned activities daily during the summer and holiday periods.

Activities available nearby are: canoeing, kayaking, sailing, horseback riding, deep sea and pier fishing, eco-tours and adventure cruises.

Sunset Beach was voted 'Best Beach on the East Coast' by Duke University and is in the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area. Sunset Beach has been a quietly kept secret of beach lovers. It has remained a wholesome, family-oriented community and was ranked the #1 barrier island on the North Carolina coast.

The setting offers the perfect backdrop for one of the most peaceful resort communities on the East Coast. The Grand Strand area hosts numerous 'Live Entertainment Theaters' featuring shows by the popular group Alabama, world champion exhibition ice skating and spectacular 'Western' shows.

The Grand Strand/Myrtle Beach area has already become known as 'the Branson of the South.' The climate is always pleasant. Temperatures range from an average low of 54 in January, to a high of 82 in July.

About Charlie Winter

My wife and I are both from New York and both retired after working for the Department of Defense for over 30 years in Rome NY, Washington DC, and Heidelberg Germany. We both love to golf, go to the beach, and travel. We have traveled all over the world.

Charlie Winter purchased this condo in 1998

Why Charlie Winter chose Coastal North Carolina

We purchased property at Sea Trail in the mid-1990's after deciding this was the place we wanted to retire to and build a house. Florida was too hot and crowded for us and this area was the best retirement place we found. The people here are all very friendly, golf courses are great, and beach is beautiful. We purchased our condo a few years after we bought our property for investment and to have a place to live while our house was being built. Turned out we almost lived in the condo one full year as our house was being built.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful view of the first hole of the Maples golf course, first floor condo so no walking up stairs, nice Village Activity Center about a 3 minute walk from our condo, beautiful family friendly Sunset Beach less than a 10 minute drive from the condo, out of the congestion of Myrtle Beach yet close enough to drive to for a day trip with plenty of activities for adults and children, and access to 3 nice on-site 18 hole golf courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been a very pleasant stay for us. Our daughter definitely earned a credit for finding this unit on short notice. Even though the purpose of our trip was not golf, it was quite tempting with the view this condo has. However, we all enjoyed almost daily trips to the island over the historical bridge. We may stop by again!

A bit of paradise in front of your window. Birds, squirrels and golfers parade near and along the year-round green Tees surrounded by lush vegetation. Large windows and sliding doors are on 2 sides of the larger unit. Comfortable beds in spacious, well furnished rooms. Two flat-screen TVs with cable and excellent WiFi signal. Great water pressure in shower. Full kitchen with all utensils and cookware. The condo is a WALKING distance from Village Center that has a large grocery store, several ethnic restaurants, church around the corner, post office, pharmacy and a gas station. So convenient for a long-term renter. Mild climate, clean air and water, and vicinity of Atlantic sand beaches makes this place an ultimate relaxation spot. The owner lives in the Resort and was easy to reach if needed. Friendly, home-like atmosphere. Had a great time here.

Nice decor

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the condo. It was like home. Nice rooms and décor. We did not have to travel far to Sunset Beach, which we thought was the best beach.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I have visited this property over July 4th holiday both, 7/12 and 7/13. Sea Trail is my home away from home! I've stayed at other locations within the resort but this is one of my FAVORITES!!! The main unit is so SPACIOUS! Plenty of room to breathe. The screened patio is RELAXING! This is where I spend most of my time. I will definitely return. The VALUE of this unit is TERRIFIC!

what more could you ask for

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. We had everything you could ask for and more. The weather was great, the condo was awesome - fully equipped with more than we could have imagined and so, so very clean. We overlooked the golf course and enjoyed our morning coffee while watching the golfers tee off on the 1st hole of the Maples Course (just one of the 3 at Sea Trail that we played). We're definitely coming back next year if it's available!
