We welcome you as our first guests to our brand new custom built home! You Are My Sunshine was built in 2017 and open for the 2018 rental season.

We are just a 2 minute walk to the beach access right at the end of our street. At the west end of Sunset Beach we are close to the end of the island with easy access to Bird Island, a reserve with pristine sandy white beaches, high natural dunes and more than 1200 acres of beautiful salt marsh and tidal creeks. Visit the sacred and peaceful Kindred Spirit mailbox there and leave a note in the journal or sit and read notes from others. Our 2700 square foot home features a reverse floor plan with the kitchen/living/dining area on the upper floor with hickory hardwood flooring throughout, tile bathrooms, quartz kitchen countertops and granite bathroom vanity countertops. Our custom wood paneled elevator stops at each floor and is just a few feet from the kitchen for the convenience of unloading groceries. Two decks on the front of the house have 12 rocking chairs (6 on each deck) to relax and enjoy the breeze. Two ceiling fans on the upper deck add to the relaxing breezes. Bed linens, bath mats and kitchen towels are provided but GUESTS MUST BRING BATH TOWELS AND BEACH TOWELS.

Hair dryers are provided in each bathroom. 2 bedrooms have king beds, 2 bedrooms have queen beds, and the 5th bedroom has 2 sets of custom built in bunk beds. The lower beds are larger: a queen and a full. The upper bunks are 1 twin and 1 extra long twin. The bunk bed room has a book light at each bed and a USB outlet at each bed with 2 charger ports.

About Jill and Jim Dickson
Jill grew up with wonderful memories of vacationing in SSB starting in 1982. We would rent the same house every year for two weeks of loud family fun with lots of laughing, eating, watching movies on the VCR, playing at the beach and most importantly making memories. Jim was introduced to SSB in 1995 and joined in with all the family fun. We made the switch from renters to homeowners in 2008. Since then we have started our own family and introduced our son to SSB when he was just three months old. In 2017 we built our dream home and we continue to share our experiences with family and friends. We hold close the memories we have made in the past with the loved ones we have lost. SSB will always be a special place like no other in our hearts. We built our dream vacation home on this quiet family friendly street at the west end of the island. This ideal location is close to the beach and allows for a private pool which is not permitted on the oceanfront. It is close to the end of the island allowing for peaceful walks and bike rides to bird island.

Lovely beach house! Nothing was left out from fully stocked kitchen too extra beach chairs & wagon.
We have been vacationing at Sunset Beach for over 45 years. This is by far the best house we have ever rented. The owners are awesome, response time to questions are immediately and they make sure all is going well during your stay. Cannot say enough good things about the owners! House is decorated immaculately and beds are very comfortable. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans and all the extras. Mini frig for drinks is an extra bonus also. The pool is a nice added feature too. Also have extra chairs to sit around pool and enjoy everyone’s company. The corn hole boards got a workout and even had a game against the neighbors. Would recommend this house highly (just not the week we rent it 😊). Best stay at Sunset and we will be back next year! GREAT HOUSE! Thank you for sharing your home.
So glad you and your family had a great vacation! We have tried our best to provide everything we think guests will need in our home. Thanks for taking great care of our home and being ideal guests! We are happy to have you back again next summer!
Gorgeous home with everything needed for a perfect family vacation!
This house is absolutely gorgeous! Each room is wonderfully, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is very spacious and fully equipped with appliances, utensils, pots and pans and everything you could possibly need to feed a large group. We spent a week there with three families, including 6 adults, 6 young adults, and two small children. We were able to easily move within the house, sharing time together, as well as enough space to get away for a little quiet time. The pool was wonderfully refreshing after spending a day on the beach. It is obvious the time and care Jill and Jim spent on making this beach home just right! In addition, Jill was so helpful in providing information about the area and her special touches (including homemade bookmarks and a welcome basket) were so thoughtful. Highly recommend!
Wonderful home. Great amenities and attention to details.
Great home for large families. Elevator and pool were a wonderful asset. Well stocked and beatifully decorated.
We are happy that you and your family enjoyed all that our home has to offer. We would love to have you return again. Thank you for taking good care of our home!
It was a Wonderful vacation, a very nice, well supplied home with everything you need!
It was a great week for all 15 of my family and very close friends. The home was well supplied, loved having two washers and dryers! Everyone loved it and was really, really nice. Well located, not super crowded. The weather wasn’t always co-operating but that was nature, not the homeowners. Loved the porches and the pool for the kids was a plus when the beach got too much. The kitchen was wonderful, well supplied.
Truly was a beautiful home and a beautiful vacation for our famiky❤️❤️
Thank you for your 5 star review! We do love having two sets of washer/dryers also! We are glad you had a wonderful vacation and would welcome you back to our home.
Well-equipped and carefully appointed house - best we've seen in 30 years of vacation rentals
Our extended family (11 of us) enjoyed all of the details here. A full complement of cooking gear, appliances (waffle maker!) and spices made vacation delicious. The pool and beach cart and chairs were great additions, as was the elevator and accessible ramp at 40th street. The mattresses were even great! From hanging out on the deck to dancing in the kitchen to puzzling at the table, relaxation and fun abounded. The week flew by, and we can't wait to do it all again.
We are so glad you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed our home! We would love to have you visit again.
