Beech Mountain 

We bought a home on Beech Mountain NC in 2006 and rented it out as a vacation rental until 2012 when we moved up here year round.


To pass along those things that we've learned ourselves, and from our guests, about vacationing on Beech Mountain, we began the Beech Mountain Bliss Blog in 2008.

Sunset Beach  


We've been visiting the North Carolina coast together since 1993, but first discovered Sunset Beach in 2008. The wide open beach, lack of commercialization on the island, and variety of restaurants and attractions nearby, made it perfect for our family.

We bought a Sunset Beach Golf Villa in Sunset Village @ Sandpiper Bay. It's a beautiful place to vacation, and from which to explore the coast.

We started the Sunset Beach Bliss Blog in 2009, to share everything that we learn about enjoying the area.
