McReady Vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay here for a week with 6 of our children and a few friends during the first week of August. The house was spacious and the views were amazing. The beach was not overcrowded and the sand was perfection. The beds were a little hard and the cleaning service did not appear to be top notch, but other than those two things, the house was just perfect for our large family. Everyone felt at home and had a great time. The large kitchen bar was perfect for everyone to take a seat. We loved the decks and the views they afforded. Ms. Brenner could not have been kinder and we are thankful for the use of your home. We had a great time and would come back here again.

Great Owners, very accomodating

  • 5 of 5

Great view/ location. We rented both sides of the house and opened the connecting sides for a great family reunion. We had probably 60 family members in various house on main street which made for an excellent get-to-gether! We even came down a day early and we able to stay in the home since it was available! Homey and comfortable and right on the Beach. Thank you! Until we meet again.

Great place for large family vacations

  • 4 of 5

Our family and friends rented both sides for a big family vacation. The duplex was perfect for us. We were able to utilize both kitchens while preparing huge meals for our group. The views of the beach were exceptional. We were fortunate in seeing the full beauty of the "Super Moon" during our visit. Got some great photos! The beach access was great. Loved the fact that the beach was NOT "shelly" and had no incidents with jelly fish. Would recommend renting both sides of this place for large family gatherings anytime.

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views of ocean, sunset, and sunrise from large decks and balcony. Great home, clean, large and spacious. All appliances working and up to date. We had a great time on the beach. Easy access to beach, stores, bike rentals and pier. Owners are very accommodating and available. WIFI was a great bonus for the kids. I am looking forward to visiting again.

Family Fun and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonder beach front home for 2 weeks. The house had a warm and peaceful feeling and spectacular views from both porches from the family room and master bedroom. The short board walk to the beach made it easy to come and go to the beach as you pleased and, of course the beach and ocean were just wonderful. We hiked the beach and swam in the ocean every day. Evening walks on pier was a great place to see the sunset sky. The beaches were filled with family's that all seemed to be enjoying the experience. With the grocery store only a short trip across the bridge, and a nicely equipped kitchen, we cooked several nites and ate on our porch as well as enjoyed some of great dining and shopping in the local towns. The place was great and I look forward to returning to Star-Thrower in near future. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great oceanfront location within walking distance of Sunset Beach shops. Well-appointed, comfortable, very clean home with everything needed for a relaxing family vacation and beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean from the back decks. Sea Trail, North Myrtle Beach, and Calabash are very accessible (5-20 min.) to the island if you want to go out to dinner or play golf, or you can stay on Sunset Beach and enjoy the natural beauty of this island via walking or bicycles. We appreciate the conservation efforts by Sunset Beach homeowners to preserve the bird sanctuary on the west end of the island. The owners of this home are accommodating and helpful. We would certainly stay in this home again in the future, given the opportunity.

Sunset Beach is the most southerly, barrier island in North Carolina. It is a nature preserve in itself with deer, goats, fox, sea turtles and beautiful marshes.

Located at the west end of Sunset Beach is Bird Island where wildlife thrives, some of which are endangered and threatened.

Historic Southport offers art galleries, marinas, excellent restaurants and antique shopping. Enjoy a stroll across the river front or a ferry ride to Bald Head Island.

Wilmington is home for the World War II battleship U.S. North Carolina with its museum and nine decks.

Our own Ingram Planetarium offers exciting programs in astronomy, science and space exploration. Call for show times

and schedule of events.

Myrtle Beach and Wilmington are less than an hour away and offer a bit of fun for each member of the family
