Overview

Surf City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

My family, who has had a decade-long love affair with sleepy Topsail Island, searched high and low for the perfect beach house here. As soon as we crossed the threshold of this 7-bedroom, 6.5 bathroom home in Surf City, we knew we’d found it.

So, what drew us to our “Jewel of the Isle”?

We love that it feels breezy, open, and expansive. Huge windows let in beams of North Carolina sun and views of the glittering blue green sea. In fact, there’s a water view, of either the ocean or the sound, in every single room of the house.

Plus the layout—with three floors, including a big, bright, lofted living area—provides plenty of room (the space is perfect for our large family—we bet it would be for yours, too!). The outdoor space also took our breath away, with its multilevel decks, sparkling, private swimming pool, and a hot tub on the second-floor deck, where you can watch rolling waves, leaping dolphins, and the occasional shrimp boat passing through. It’s also a great spot in evening, with the ocean bathed in the orange and pink hues of sunset.

And we loved the house’s one-of-a-kind architectural elements, like the ship watch perched on top of the house—its four windowed walls, one at each compass point, give an unparalleled view of the Atlantic and the sound. We decided this room would be best as a bedroom and outfitted it with a queen-sized bed. Just a warning: your group may fight over claim to this unique, fourth-floor sleeping space!

The third-floor living area has sweeping ocean views, and features a grouping of comfortable sofas and chairs, plus eating space for a whopping 16 people (with a breakfast nook, formal dining area, and bar stools in one common area)—all on top of glossy, Brazilian cherry wood floors.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream in stainless steel, granite counter tops, and spacious cabinetry, plus a breakfast bar with 4 bar stools. Pour a few glasses of wine and keep the cook company!

Add an elevator to make hauling your luggage easy, two king-sized master suites with ocean views and attached baths (one with a Jacuzzi tub), three more bedrooms with their own en suite baths, a kid’s bedroom with two twin trundle beds, flat-screen televisions in every single bedrooms, a laundry room, linen service in peak season, and a day dock for boat rentals, and you have one perfect beach house to call yours for a week.

Our guests are as consistently pleased with this house as we are—in fact, we often hear that it exceeds even their high expectations! We hope to count you among our happy guests.

Give us a call today to book your getaway!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house!!! The pictures on the website are great but do not capture how expansive the house really is. We arrived to an open, airy and exceptionally clean house. We had a large group and never felt crowded and having bathrooms with every bedroom was first rate. We had people come from all over and had plenty of parking for vehicles. Everyone raved about how comfortable all the beds were and how great the showers were. Great water pressure! You don't get this in a five star hotel. Prior to our arrival Lisa was responsive and great to work with but we did not have one issue during our stay. Everything worked perfectly and they even had someone stop by twice to check the pool and the hot tub. And oh the views!!!! The beautiful blue ocean from every room and the main floor with it's large windows takes your breath away. There was a constant breeze every single day. The weather was perfect even with experiencing Hurricane Arthur which only lasted one day and we were back out on the beach. The beautiful private pool was so refreshing and we enjoyed it every day when we came back from the beach. The home's decor is comfortable and inviting which made it even more special and it is equipped with everything you could ask for and more. Beach toys, chairs and extra refrigerator/freezer and even a foosball table which our grandsons enjoyed daily. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful home and a fantastic beach vacation for our special family gathering. We will have memories for a lifetime. Everyone in our family including ourselves definitely want to come back!

Beautiful Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience and I highly recommend friends and family to stay here for their beach get-away! Beautiful, spacious beach house with all that you could ask for. Great ocean view - we watched the dolphins from the living room window and porch! I enjoyed relaxing on the porch chairs with the ocean breeze in the evening while listening to the waves - very peaceful setting. This was my 2nd time in Surf City and I would definitely stay here again!

perfect home

  • 5 of 5

I was in charge of my sisters get away weekend for a couple of weekends before her wedding and all she wanted was the perfect place to relax and enjoy catching up with friends. This home was perfect. We had a wonderful experience and I loved the fact that we had an elevator to load and unload our personal items. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of dishes and utensils. the furniture was so comfortable. We had 10 guest and it was perfect. I would definitely recommend this home for girlfriend getaways and families.

Fantastic vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation!! Well appointed house with all of the amenities!! The 3rd floor is the main living area with kitchen and an open floor plan offering fantastic ocean views from the whole floor. Every bedroom offered its own full bath and the elevator was most helpful with loading and unloading. When we weren't on the beach we were enjoying the private, pool or the hot tub overlooking the ocean! There were even toys and beach chairs available for our use! We hope to visit surf city NC again and wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again! The owners were easy to contact and they even mailed back our camera charger we left plugged in! A+++ thanks for a wonderful stay!
