Perfect Location For The Beach And Sound

This cute 3 bedroom 2 bath Hatteras Island beach cottage is a cozy spot for your next family vacation. The beach is just a 400 feet from the cottage, 5 lots away, with convenient direct beach access.

The first level houses two furnished sundecks, one facing north and one offering great southern exposure. You enter the cottage into the den area which is an expansion of the living area. The living area opens into the kitchen and dining. A full bath with shower stall is located off the kitchen.

Climb the spiral staircase to the second level where you will find two queen bedrooms, an open loft bedroom with pyramid bed, TV and children’s play nook. Also on the second level is a full bath with tub/shower combination.

Sunshine Daydream is within easy walking distance to several restaurants including the local Dairy Queen.

“Sunshine, daydream, Now come on over daydream”…as the Grateful Dead Song goes! Make Sunshine Day Dream your vacation dream come true.

family-friendly, very close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We liked the very short walk to the kid-and-dog-friendly beach!

House was comfortable.

adequate value and setting

  • 4 of 5

Everything was pretty good and met expectations. Location was great. Other reviews were valid. Weather was a bit chilly and rainy so we stayed inside and played games and cooked and kitchen amenities were good. One bedroom had some sort of AC device in the window but not a very good seal so had cold air flowing into room from outside but got extra blankets to stay warm in the drafty room.

Quaint Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. It was close enough to the beach that we could walk to the house to make lunch and take it back to the beach. The outside shower was perfect for washing off after a day at the beach. Beds were very comfortable as well. Grace was quick to answer any questions that we had. Thank you for sharing your home with our family!

Small and outdated

  • 3 of 5

This house is small and has a circular stairway to the upstairs making carrying your suitcase to your bedroom very difficult. I kept my suitcase downstairs and brought up what I needed. All in all it was ok for the 2 days we were there but would not have liked it for any longer.

Weekend retreat

Everything was as advertised. Close to the beach. Bathrooms a little small. Worked well and great value. Owner was responsive to questions and very polite I will rent again.

It served it's purpose. I was not disappointed

  • 3 of 5

There are some changes i would make. Like: keep the AC on so that when people arrive it is not musty smelling. Install a driveway up to the walkway, that way people don't have to walk through the soggy grass. Put a table (maybe small) on the front and back decks. Use brighter light bulbs so that everything is not so dismal. Like I said, I was quite satisified. It was clean, and orderly. Yes, things are dated, but so what! I have paid a lot more and had many problems, so, it is good for the money. bob romano

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback Bob. The AC units should have been on upon your arrival. I apologize for that mishap. I will make sure this gets addressed. As for the yard, it was one of the lowest on the street. However, since your visit we have added fill and raised the front yard and driveway about 6 inches. So, this should resolve the standing water issue when we have heavy rains. We also changed the bulbs out to a higher wattage to brighten up the house. The outdoor table suggestion is a great idea. We're in the market for one now, so one should be coming soon. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope you will stay with us again soon!
