DIRECTIONS TO SUNSET BEACH
Sunset Beach is in Southeastern North Carolina. It is the last Island in North Carolina. The island is about 7 miles off U.S. 17 at Highway 904. Coming from the North turn Left on to 904 (from the South turn Right). Take 904 to the second traffic light (roughly 4 miles from the intersection with U.S. 17). Turn right and follow the signs to Sunset Beach. The bridge onto the island is roughly 2 more miles. At the circle take the Mannon Gore bridge, 1 more mile to Main St. Turn right on to West Main St. 201 is on the Left at the corner of 28th St. 903 in on the Left just past 35th St.
THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH in NORTH CAROLINA
Sunset Beach, formally known as Bald Beach, is the southernmost island in North Carolina. The island was bought in 1955 by Mannon C. Gore from the Brooks family, which dates its ownership back to the 1700's. Mannon Gore, a farmer by trade, possessed vast skills in bridge building and dredging work. Using these skills, Mr. Gore began his vision of Sunset Beach by designing and building the causeway and the first pontoon swing bridge onto the island. Mr. Gore also constructed the original Vesta Pier on the island named after a civil war blockade runner that now rests buried in the sand beside the present Sunset Beach pier. Unit sales began in 1958 and Sunset Beach has grown in every way since. To aid Mannon Gore, his son Edward M. Gore, Sr. joined the work in the late 1950's. Together they successfully developed and shaped the island into what the island is today. As the spectacular island's beaches grow, we continue to maintain the straighforward feeling of yesteryear’s when times were simpler.
This home was one of the original homes constructed on the West End Oceanfront in 1972. We have had a New & Committed Adore for this home. This home is Family neighborly, just right for the number of visitors you may choose to invite & offer all comforts possible.

Begin Your Search Early
Wrightsville Beach rentals start booking very early. For the best selection, begin your planning and search 6-12 months in advance of a trip. A lot of households prefer to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.
Decide on a Community and Time
Begin by picking which specific area of Wrightsville Beach you'd like to visit, and the determine dates you'll be vacationing.
How Many Beds?
How many family members are planning to share your trip? Remember that that many homes list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for your group. Most rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.
Commit to a Budget
Confirm that " @ Ocean Front Guest Friendly Home "An Emerald On The Beach"" satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. If a few individuals or family members are sharing the cost, always make sure that everybody understands their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to contribute. Most rental documents call for a single person to be liable for the entire reservation.
Create a list of "Wants" and "Requirements"
What home features is your group searching for? Is a screened deck a necessity? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or close to a city setting? Are sheets included with the rental contract, or do you need to bring your own? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and wishes" from your company to help filter your search to the most appropriate property.
Accessibility and Special Issues
Optimal accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is needed, include that into your search. Nearly all vacation rental listings will include a list of amenities.
Are you or other members of the group visiting with a pet dog? Although many rental homes allow family pets, guidelines and charges fluctuate per rental. Examine your agreement carefully! Service fees may apply when animals are included. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!
Searching the Internet
Once the area, travel dates and family members are decided, search multiple resources for the best rental home selection.
