Great value for the price!

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at this condo. First off I would say that we would definitely stay here again. It was comfortable, close to the beach, has a pool on the property and the unit has a washer and dryer. All of these things made our stay great. This condo is dated as per the pictures but is fully stocked for all you will need for a beach vacation. Linens, lots of pots/pans/dishes/etc in the kitchen, beautiful view of the ocean from the living room. While the unit is obviously used mostly as a rental due to the dated decor, worn carpet, not kept up like a home you live in yourself, this did not detract from our vacation in the least. Due to these reasons is why I'm sure this property is a bit cheaper. It is a good value for your money. We were lucky to have excellent weather while on North Topsail Beach so we didn't spend much time indoors.
This was our first time to Topsail. It is a quiet area, not commercialized (thank goodness), beautiful beaches and friendly people. We only ate out once (Sears Landing) and instead opted to cook for ourselves. There are few restaurants around. This is the type of place to stay if you want to hang out at the beach or pool for your whole vacation. Also, the owners have a good supply of beach toys, 2 beach chairs, fishing poles/nets, boogie boards...and we donated our beach umbrella to the collection as well.
The master bedroom has a full sized bed and then the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds. For our traveling family of 4 (2 adults and twin toddler girls) we were able to just fit 2 pack n plays into the 2nd bedroom. The kitchen is fairly large and there are sky lights in the living room and kitchen. The 4 balconies provide lots of outdoor space.
The walk to the beach is relatively short which is hard to tell from the pictures. The unit is not directly on the beach. You walk through the pool area to get to the beach access.
We were there the first week of Sept 2011 and barely anyone appeared to be on the island. Great shells and crabs running around on the beach.
We hope to come back year after year! North Topsail Beach is a gem and this condo is a great budget friendly find. :)
