Overview

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose North Topsail Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
Answer to Prayer was exactly that.Our Answer to Prayer.We felt truly blessed to be able to gather children and grandchildren together from three different states in order to spend a wonderful week at the beach.As a family we are so spread out that our time together is truly special.The beach house was absolutely perfect! We enjoyed every day on the beach and had a couple of night storms but the weather didnt interrupt anything we had planned. The house was fully equipped with with everything needed to prepare meals and a laundry room to keep up with the all the wet towels!This beach house was the perfect location. You just walked out onto the back deck and down the steps and you were on on your own private beach.Absolutely beautiful.We hope to be able to return again soon.So many wonderful memories were created and we praise our God for the many blessings we experienced on this vacation.It couldnt have been any better. Many thanks to the owners for all their assistance.

Nice home!

  • 4 of 5
My husband, adult children and grandchildren had a wonderful week at North Topsail beach! We have never stayed oceanfront, so Answer to Prayer was "An Answer to Prayer"! The house was very comfortable and was well stocked with most everything you'd need or want at the beach. In the garage there are extra beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and even ladder golf! Other than heavy rain our first 3 days we had a wonderful family vacation!

Wonderful House and Beach!

  • 5 of 5
My family recently visited Topsail Beach for the first time in July and had a wonderful stay at Answer to Prayer! We were 11 people ages 18 months to 65 years and we were even able to bring our dog! The house was clean, well maintained and fully equipped with a cooking ready kitchen and comfortable sleeping accommodations. The owner could not have been more helpful. She was always happy to answer our many questions as this was our first time visiting. We enjoyed many dinners out on the outside deck and loved the ease of taking the kids out on the beach just a few steps away. The location of Answer to Prayer made us feel like we had our own private beach. I would highly recommend this house to families with young children and to anyone who enjoys relaxing at the beach! Great house and great vacation! We'd love to go back!

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 :)
