About Sun Fun Rentals

As the longtime owners of a second home in Carolina Beach, Sheila and Dean Embler are very familiar with the beautiful Pleasure Island area. However, it wasn’t until their nephew Chad Bazen began his own custom rod business that the couple seriously began developing a plan that would allow them to move here full time. Chad and Dean identified the need for a business that would allow folks to enjoy their “island time” to the fullest by making a variety of activities more accessible. So~in April of 2014, the Embler’s opened SunFun Rentals.

Since its opening, SunFun has been a popular stop for visitors and locals alike! Boasting an impressive fleet of golf carts, scooters and jeeps, no wonder the SunFun motto is: “Go Play!” For those who prefer having their own “toys”, SunFun also has a full service sales division that specializes in custom golf carts.

Imagine the Possibilities

Whether you have a week, or a few days to spend, renting a golf cart, scooter or jeep from SunFun gives you instant, safe access to off the beaten track adventures! And we deliver Weekly rentals to Southport, Oak Island, and Wrightsville Beach.


  • Hospitality at it's finest!

    I would like to thank Sheila, Dean and Chad for their hospitality during our trip. We rented the Excursion for 2 days. Unknown to Chad (the master fisherman), it needed an alignment that day, so to make up for it they provided us with two Jeep Wranglers, fire pit/wood, fishing equipment and even a cooler with ice! Parking permits and access to both beaches was included. They go out of their way to make sure we "have fun" and that we did! This is a must do and the price was very reasonable. Thank you for a memorable vacation. See you next year!
