We loved the privacy of the home with a neighboring house only on one side, the amazing sunset views, and the beautiful deck. The home was decorated beautifully and was very comfortable.

Oh gosh I can’t glow enough about the house. It’s recently been updated and the bathrooms are great, beautiful and beachy inside, and well equipped to never leave this island paradise. We can’t wait to come back soon!!

Beautiful spot right on the beach with beautiful sunsets. So relaxing we enjoyed it so much.
Lisa S. Sep 2020
The location was perfect. The a/c vents leaked we consistantly had to keep wiping up the floors. Everytime we walked across the room the house swayed. Two tubs were cracked. One wasn't useable. Floors were soft beside the tub and toilet in the main bath. We know this was beyond your control but the due to all the rain the mosquitoes were horrendous. Despite these few issues we had a good time
Manager response:
Lisa, thank you for your feedback. We have let the local staff know so that they can review. We are so happy to hear that you had a good time and hope to host you again in the future.

Not a commercial area at all. More family oriented with a slower pace. The sunsets are spectacular.
Martin B. May 2020

Mandy S. Mar 2020
Decent house... Needs a LOT of repair work. For example.. hammering in the multiple nails sticking out all over the stairs leading up to the house! My son fell and cut his leg on them. Or maybe fixing the COMPLETELY loose shower hot and cold knobs! They come right off the shower wall! Nice location... whoever cleans it does a good job.
Manager response:
Hi, Mandy! We appreciate your feedback and apologize your son was hurt while staying here. The nails have been taken care of, and we are currently quotes for a bathroom remodel. Thank you for staying with us!

The House was in an excellent location and clean, beautiful! Needs some work however! The house was somewhat smaller than it appeared on line but beautiful! Definitely needs a lot better pillows, blankets and throws! There was only salt and pepper! But we had a beautiful honeymoon!
Kathy M. Jan 2020
The location of the home was perfect for us. Pet friendly and a great space!
Amy F. Jan 2020
This is a sweet little house all the way at the end of a cul-de-sac, immediate next-door neighbors only on one side, and right on the beach. Been coming to DI since 1983 and found this place a few years ago. The rates have gone up quite a bit since Vacasa took over, unfortunately, but we still enjoyed our stay. (No wifi, but that's because the Island has two fairly lousy ISPs - so unplug and enjoy the silence!)
Spencer R. Dec 2019
The house was immaculate. Everything easy to find and one of the best spots on the beach...loved it all..will definitely go back
Stephen G. Nov 2019
Nice beach house on the bay with a great back deck. Has all of the amenities that you would expect from a beach house, although it could use some wine glasses. Also, the jacuzzi tub is cracked and not functional so you only have a shower in the master bath. Other than that, the house was clean and well appointed with a great view of the bay. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Manager response:
Thank you for your nice review and feedback, Stephen! The owner is working with a contractor to replace the cracked tub; it has been removed as an advertised amenity for the time being. We have added wine glasses to the home and hope to see you again!
Randal M. Sep 2019
Loved this home! Perfect location! Short walk to the beach and a very short walk to the bay. House was very clean and all beds were comfortable. House does need some maintenance though, but nothing to serious. Deck needs a gate since house is pet friendly, looks like it had one at one time. All in all, we would stay here again.
Jack H. Aug 2019
I loved everything about my stay! Wonderful experience!
Michael G. Apr 2019
Nice quiet location on bay side. Great layout for the house. Getting a little worn in some spots but would stay again.
Tameeka H. Apr 2019
First off, I emailed the manager the day before my arrival and asked if there was a grill because the homeaway rep seemed to no speak English when I asked her. The manager said no but when I got there the grill was on the back patio just as it was in the picture so I was pissed because I could have saved money from grilling. The jacuzzi knobs were off. I assumed they took them off to keep from having to clean the jacuzzi. The WiFi didn’t work until the last day. Let’s get to the most interesting part! Just when I thought I was about to fry some chicken, the roaches came out of no where as if they were there to help me cook. And I don’t mean one or two, we’re talking 30 or more out at one time. I was so shocked and mad at the same time. I took pictures and recorded them. As a travel agent, I would have been so embarrassed to have booked this for a client. When the owner called to check on the WiFi, I told her there was a bigger problem. She asked what was it. I said ROaches and it’s a lot of them. Her reply was “uuuuoooh” so she knew about them.. this is the most discusting property that I’ve ever rented. Who goes on vacation to Roaches? My friend tried to leave a big tip. I took most of it and told her we were not leaving a tip when we are taking a chance on taking ROaches back home. This property does not need to be rented until it is bombed. Otter than the roaches, the property is very nice. If you have to unplug the router to make the WiFi work, watch out because there are plenty of roaches in it. And the kitchen smell like roaches. Thumbs down.
Manager response:
Hi Tameeka, we are sorry about the confusion with the grill. As for the roaches, we completely understand your frustration. The home is on a scheduled pest control maintenance program and it is definitely helping. Thank you.

Home was open and airy, bright and cheery. The set up was great for my husband and I and are our 2 kids. It was comfortable and the location was great.
David H. Dec 2018
Would have given 5 stars if the jacuzzi tubhad been working.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see our guest was expecting to use the jacuzzi tub as this is not an advertised feature of the home. We do hope to see this guest again!
Tracey P. Jun 2018
Vacation was very relaxing. House needs some TLC. Kitchen silverware was tiny, bowls cracked, needs more kitchen serving items. Pull out sofa was horrible. Had to call maintenance and horrible to sleep on. Otherwise stay was great. Good location to beach and bay. Cleaning could have been better.
Debbie F. Apr 2018
Excellent. Well kept home with plenty of room for 2 adults and a dog
Patricia K. Apr 2018
Quiet, private location with an extraordinary view! Cottage was more than adequate. Plenty of opportunities to just do nothing.
Jerry O. Mar 2018
Our experience was very smooth from picking up the key to finding our rental. The house was clean, in a great location, and in very good condition.
Betty K. Dec 2017
We have been staying in this property for the last 3 years. We have been pleased since we are seniors and the house is only 2 bedroom. Just enough room for company for a short visit. There have been several upgrades but, the living room furniture definitely needs to be up dated.
Lora L. Aug 2017
Highly recommended! Never stayed in a beach house before and I fell in love! PREFECT view! Right there on the bay and then right across the street is the beach! Very clean house! Can't wait to go back! The staff was really helpful and nice!

It was such a breeze to check in. The house was really nice and had wonderful views. Wish I could have stayed longer!
Martha B. May 2017
Great location on the West End bayside. No other homes to distract your views. We found the home to be 'well loved' meaning it could use a fresh coat of paint etc. but was great for the price. It has everything you need including washer/dryer coffee pot and ice in the freezer. We loved touring the area, sleeping in and listening to the birds and waves. Management staff was very friendly.
Howard C. Apr 2017
NO bugs
Betty S. Mar 2017
We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Beach very much. The cottage was in need of repairs and cold use some updates. However, the location is very good, beautiful sunsets, great walks on the beach and is only Aa short walk to the beach or relax on the large deck. We3 liked that we could park the car under the house for protection from the weather. The timing was good on the weather. We only had one days of rain. We would definitely go back. We were told that the property has a new owner who plans to do some repairs and updates. Overall, it was a very pleasant week.
Patti M. Mar 2017
This home is in the ideal location. Totally enjoyed. The home needs some tender loving care but is roomy enough for 6.
