You've arrived - Sunrise/Sunset

Looking back at the house from dune crest

Walking down the pathway to Sunset

Turn around and walk back down to the house.  Sunrise and Sunset are essentially mirror images with the outside deck, living room, dining area and kitchen on either end of the house and the bedrooms and bathrooms running off the hallway down the center of the house.  Each living room is huge (about 25x18) and with large double height cathedral ceilings and plenty of sliders and walls of glass to visually merge the outdoor and indoor space.  Sunrise has glass walls/sliders on all three sides whereas Sunset has glass walls on "only" two sides and a window on the third.   Sunset has the larger deck at slightly over 1200 square feet wrapping all around the living room, but Sunrise's wrap around deck of over 680 square feet is hardly limiting with plenty of room for everyone to sun, dine or simply hang out.  The view from either side is breathtaking and serene.  Though Sunset is closer to the dune crest and has a better water view, the main view from Sunrise down the long dune grass covered hill to Black Fish Creek (no creek in fact) is my favorite.  Either way you can't lose.

Sunset Living Room

Each unit has a large kitchen open to the living room with a large counter which makes a good place for kids to eat or people to relax and visit with the "workers" in the kitchen.   Either side can easily and comfortably seat 12 people whether inside or outside.  Both kitchens are modern, fully stocked with everything you could need for cooking and entertaining and with updated dishwashers and all the other appliances you might need.   Plenty of counter space and room for everyone to help in the kitchen if desired.  Each side of the house has its own washer and drier as well.
Originally the house was rented as two separate 3 bedroom units by closing doors in the middle of the house.  When rented as one large house as it is now, it has the unique advantages of accomodating groups of families or friends all together and yet with the space and privacy to be apart if desired.  Maybe the younger set will want to play games or watch videos in Sunrise while the adults visit or read or listen to music in Sunset.  Maybe one group of friends will want to relax and cook a separate dinner in Sunrise while another family does their own thing one evening in Sunset and all get together by walking down the hall later on.  Because there are two separate living rooms/kitchens/decks/dining areas the house affords the unique possibility of togetherness AND privacy at the same time.
The master suites in both Sunset and Sunrise are spacious with a queen size bed, sitting area, separate closets and bureaus and a full jupdated bathroom with tub/shower.  Each of the other four bedrooms are spacious and have two twin beds each.  Period panelling on the walls, brightly painted floors thoughout the house, decoration and interesting artwork everywhere create atmosphere unique to each room.  You may end up squabbling over who gets the Japanese lantern bedroom versus the blue room etc.  The newly renovated large bathrooms for these bedrooms have large showers, tiled floors and walls, large mirrors, modern lighting and features. 
All the comforts you need are here.  Beds are new.  Furniture is comfortable.  Sunset has two lazyboys.  Sunrise has ligne rosset and rattan furniture and a specially painted dining room table.  Each unit has a tv and stereo with cd player.  Sunset has a vcr and a dvd player; Sunrise has a vcr.   Each has its own unique decoration and feel.  Each has a charcoal grill and plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture for dining, sitting and lounging.  I think you'll be hard pressed to pick one side over the other.
