Veronica, our visit to Topsail Island this past October was wonderful and we especially enjoyed staying in your beautiful, well-equipped and furnished home. We found it to be exactly as you represented. The location, along with the weather, was terrific and it was so very comfortable there. We especially enjoyed many great nights’ sleep on the upscale linens and wonderful beds. What luxury.
Over the years, we try to have at least one annual vacation with long-time friends from Ohio and usually agree each family will provide one “home cooked” meal. As a precaution, this involves bringing any special cookware and/or utensils unique to the meal. None of these were required in your generously stocked kitchen (by the way, we’ve never experienced such a quiet dishwasher). We actually had some other friends come over from Raleigh to join us for a few days. Your home accommodated the three families with room to spare. All three couples give your Topsail home a thumbs up rating and would highly recommend it to anyone for a wonderful “home away from home” vacation.
We found several very nice places to eat, such as Daddy Mac’s Beach Grille and Beauchaines, both of which were just down the highway in Surf City. An interesting spot with great seafood was just north of the house and adjacent to the pier--Sea View Fishing Pier and Restaurant. The décor isn’t the greatest, but the friendliness of the owners and other customers along with the delicious shrimp and scallops made it worth the visit.
We appreciate your excellent communication from when we first made our reservation to after we returned home finding we had left a few items behind. Thanks for taking care of getting them back to us and thank you to both you and Mitch for opening up your lovely home to strangers. We would certainly recommend your Topsail home to others and are actually considering a return for our group or possibly a family reunion.
