ANSWER TO PRAYER- BEACHFRONT AND BEAUTIFUL

North Topsail Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Answer to Prayer is an airy ocean front home that is just the ticket for enjoying Topsail Island up close and in style.

The house accommodates up to 10 guests with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Answer to Prayer is located in North Topsail Beach just over the High Rise Bridge to the island and a short drive to downtown Surf City for shopping and dining. A pet friendly, smoke free refuge for you, your family and friends is waiting.

You'll love the mornings. We like to get up early with a steaming cup of coffee and sit out on the deck. It's so quiet, but the beach is waking up. The waves crash on the shore, sea gulls gawk at one another.

A flock of pelicans come 'floating' on the winds as they cruise the beach looking for breakfast. The morning sun warms us up.

My husband decides he wants to go for a ride on his bike. He heads south on the bike shoulder lane waving at the friendly islanders driving in the early morning. After a good run to the southern part of the island, he gets off at the point to smell the jasmine and salt air.

As he heads back, he stops at Seas the Day, a beach house owned by a friend of ours in Surf City. We have friends staying there who have come to Topsail Island the same week as us. After he greets them and visits for a while, he invites them to the barbeque we are planning that night.

While he is riding on his bike, I decide I will take a quick dip and swim a little. The water is chilly at first, but then the Caribbean kissed waters seem to warm up. After a workout, I climb back on the beach and then to take a shower. I decide that I will lay in the sun later. But first I want to do a little shopping at this absolutely darling clothes shop in Surf City.

I could go on and on about how much you'll enjoy Answer to Prayer, but I invite you to come and make your own vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We just finished a week at Answer to Prayer. The house looks exactly like the photos on the web site and was a comfortable spot to pull our family together. We loved the ocean front location, it made it easy for our multi-generational family to go to and from the water. This was our first visit to Topsail Island and we loved the relaxed vibe. Midway through the week I said to my husband that Topsail was the kind of place where you dress up by putting on your flip-flops. Otherwise we lived in bare feet and swimsuits all week. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place

Roger and Darlene are from Hilliard, Ohio a suburb of Columbus. Roger is originally from California and Darlene is originally from Indiana.

Growing up without a North Carolina beach. We love Topsail Island. With the stress of life it is great to get away with friends and family.

We have two grown children who also enjoy joining us at the beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

After sending our daughter off to school at UNCWilmington in the fall of 2005, we decided to look for a vacation rental in the area. Really just out of curiosity. Being from Ohio this beach is a real treat and being an architect I wanted a house that was architecturally exciting. One of our dear friends had purchased a house and a duplex and told us about Topsail Island,and how quiet and not crowded it was. Well I feel in love with 'Answer to Prayer' in September when I came up for a parents weekend. We waited until March to make an offer and it was still on the market ( in 2005 things were moving a lot faster). We really felt our prayer had been answered when price was reduced, we both were in agreement and the house was available. We have had fun painting and decorating and relaxing with our friends on the deck. Many of our families who stay come back year after year, treat the house as it was their own and call it home. We hope you will enjoy our home too.

i hope you will too.

The house is kid friendly with gates for the stairs going down to the beach and to the driveway. Also suitable for keeping dogs on the deck.

We provide a high chair and games and DVDs.

Each bedroom has a ceiling fan as well as A/C for upstairs and down.

Turtle watching is also quite common in this section of North Topsail Beach.

FAMILY FUN

  • 4 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful vacation at Answer@Prayer.. it was comfortable and, more importantly, fit our needs. Walking out the door onto the beach was the most convenient and enjoyable aspect about our vacation. The weather was great, and the location of the house was perfect. Darlene was attentive, and checked in on us regularly. I appreciated the "What to bring" email prior to our arrival.. only suggestion I have is to include hair dryer on that list. All in all, it was a great vacation.. just trying to lock my husband into next years dates so I can reserve now!!

WONDERFUL WEEK, COMFY HOME, EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE COFFEE MAKER WAS GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
I think it would be nice to have a toilet paper roll for the bathroom when you arrive. Just a simple need after you have traveled and need to use the loo! Coffee maker was messy, and brewed perhaps 4 cups.
We would have loved to rent again at the end of Sept. but it is totally booked.
My grand daughter loved the beach toys in your garage, we appreciated them! Weather was terrific! It was definitely an answer to our prayers, Kathleen Johnson

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good week. I will talk to the cleaning staff and ask them to leave out a roll of toilet paper. We noticed if we put hot water in the coffee it did not work as well as cold water. Maybe it is time to replace it.

A WONDERFUL MONTH AT A WONDERFUL HOME !!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two doggies just spent the month of Feb 2014 in the lovely home of Darlene and Roger called "Answer to Prayer". From the time we walked in , it felt like HOME to us. The house is open and airy with sliding doors with ceiling to floor views of the ocean from the Kitchen,Dining and Living room which are all vaulted. The furniture was comfortable and the Entertainment features were up to date and very nice. Kitchen was well appointed with everything you could ask for as we cooked a lot of our meals at home. The lower two bedrooms were roomy, cheerful and comfortable and the upper Master is huge with a large master bath and plenty of closet space. The views from the Master are of the ocean on one side and the sound on the other. It also has a nice huge jetted tub. The other bedrooms has two very nice twins. Love all the décor in all the rooms. The bath downstairs is nice and large as well. The deck wraps around which my yellow lab and my mixed hound/husky loved. The ocean views are incredible and watching the dolphins and birds and the sunrises and sunsets was all such a blessing to us. We rented in Surf City last Jan but we really loved this home even more. You are in between Surf City and Sneads Ferry to shop and go out to eat. We would recommended this lovely home to anyone , so go and ENJOY!! God Bless...Rosemary and Bret :)

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO REST AND RELAX

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our five night stay at this home so much. It has an absolutely breathtaking view of the ocean which is just steps away from the deck. The home has all the amenities you could possibly ask for from entertainment to having all the very nice utensils for cooking a fabulous meal. The rooms are comfortable, clean and decorated very nicely. We truly could not be more pleased. The owner was a joy to work with and answered all of our inquiries promptly. We would definitely stay again.

WONDERFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
Our prayers were answered when we opened the door to Answer to Prayer beach house! The location of the beach house was exactly what we anticipated . . . by the beach in a great location on Topsail Island. The pictures were what attracted us to book it for our once a year vacation, but it was even prettier in person. The house was bright,clean and well-maintained, and Darlene, the owner, even called to check on us to make sure we arrived safely. We discovered a delicious restaurant called Rick's Restaurant and Sports Bar with some of the best barbecued ribs, and another restaurant we enjoyed was Riverside Cafe serving some of the freshest, best seafood in the area. After dinner, we treated ourselves to delicious frozen yogurt at the Fuzzy Peach and had fun talking to the locals. The most relaxing things we enjoyed were sitting on the deck at night enjoying the stars and sounds of the ocean and taking morning and evening walks in the sand. We had such a wonderful time and have already recommended Answer to Prayer to our friends. Thanks Darlene and Roger!

A PEACEFUL, BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE AND RELAXING BEACH GETAWAY..

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were so blessed to enjoy this beautiful beach home October 5th thru 10th for an early 25th wedding anniversary celebration. From the moment that we opened the door and stepped inside, we felt surrounded by beauty and comfort. The bright and cheery decor, the beautiful lighting and layout, the comfy furniture, the crisp clean air, and the breathtaking views and closeness of the beach and the ocean waves from the large and abundant windows were all amazing. (As nice as the photos are, the home is truly even more beautiful.) It only took a moment to notice that everything inside and outside was super clean and very well maintained. We felt so “at home” and welcome, and yet it was easy to see that we were somewhere very special. After our 11 hour drive from Ohio, and a long, relaxing walk on the gorgeous beach, we were ready for a good night’s sleep. The master suite’s large jetted bathtub (one of my favorite things) was extremely relaxing. The bed in the master suite was super comfy, with a large window right next to it overlooking the beach and the ocean. After a restful night’s sleep, what a joy it was to wake up and see a pod of playful dolphins and graceful brown pelicans following three shrimp boats just off shore. (They were waiting for the yummy shrimp to fall out of the netting, no doubt.) After enjoying the show from the window for a while, breakfast (although not shrimp like the dolphins) sounded like a wonderful idea. The kitchen had everything that we needed and more to prepare meals that we often took out to the picnic table on the deck to enjoy. (We actually only visited a few restaurants during our stay because cooking in a kitchen with an ocean view....was pretty awesome!) When we could pry ourselves away from the peacefulness of Answer to Prayer and the beach, we visited the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital. A must see if you are an animal lover. We also took the short drive to Wilmington to tour the WWII Battleship the USS North Carolina, which was amazing. Sadly, the days of our anniversary getaway went by all too quickly. Our whole trip was such a wonderful way to celebrate, and we cannot thank the owners, Darlene and Roger enough for sharing their beautiful beach home with us. They were very friendly, attentive and organized, making everything about our stay so pleasant. Our time here was perfect, filled with peace, relaxation, beauty and comfort. It truly was a blessing, and an...Answer to Prayer!
