Rocking chair breezeway porch offers a perfect vantage for a gathering or simply gazing at the view with a glass of wine. All bedrooms have balconies with views of ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. Located on a quiet side street, a short walk to private ocean beach (short enough for a pre-schooler to walk with bucket and shovel in hand).

IMPORTANT NOTE TO PROSPECTIVE RENTERS:
Holden Beach is recognized as one of the ten best family beaches in North America. Sunset Vista is located on a short quiet street with few rental properties. It is the peaceful little beach street you would have loved as a kid.
If your intention is to rent Sunset Vista to host drunken friends, play loud music with total disregard to the time and the neighbors, be rude and fill the house beyond its capacity, then rent another house. Sunset Vista is not for you.
I respect my neighbors and the character of the island. Renters who abuse the house, the neighbors and the law will meet the Holden Beach police, be evicted and forfeit their rental fee.
We absolutely fell in love with this house. It did not feel like a vacation house, it felt like home. I wish I could live here year round. We didn't lack for any comforts. The only thing we had to bring were our towels and food. Kitchen was very well stocked.
The views were amazing.
There were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children. We had plenty of room to sleep and eat.
The porch was wonderful. My 76 year old Mother did not want to get out much, so she was well entertained with the marsh and ICW views. The wildlife was extraordinary for us.
I hope to be able to rent this same house every year. Mr. Hall was very helpful and very quick to respond to my inquiries before I rented.
OK - the positive first - the house is perfectly located on a quiet street overlooking the marsh with easy beach access. The house has a great layout and is perfect for entertaining and over all we had a great vacation - despite the cons.
The cons - the house is dated and needs some serious remodeling/refreshing. I traditionally cook at least 2 meals a day - but the stove was so old the burners don't sit flush and the pots and pans were so bad that to even boil eggs was a challenge.
The beds and bedding were old and frankly just didn't feel clean and when you add to that the carpets in the bedrooms were dirty and stained - it wasn't great.
The living layout is perfect - but the furniture is old, uncomfortable and frankly a little smelly.
The technology in the house is ok - if you are ok with 1 tv and basic cable. Note there is no wifi.
Additionally - there are no "perks" to the property - most of the other homes I have stayed in on Holden have a few beach chairs or toys - but there are none here - so be sure to bring your own.
Overall - we had a great vacation but for the price I had hoped for and expected more from the home.
