North Topsail Beach House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Surf's Up, our cozy cottage by the sea, is the perfect family getaway! The best thing about this house is that you can walk out the back door and down the steps to the beach! The deck is a pleasant place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the sunrise if you're early enough! Then walk down the steps and go for a run or walk the dog (we're pet friendly!). The beach is wide and beautiful and rarely crowded even in mid-summer. You can swim, fish and surf right in front of the house.
This quintessential beach cottage has simple yet tasteful decor. The main living and dining area is light, cheerful and comfortable with soft yellow walls, bright white trim and wispy sheer white curtains. There are fabulous ocean views from all the windows. There is a television with DVD and CD player and lots of books and board games for family fun. The kitchen is fully equipped and offers a choice of dining at a white tile top table for six or a center island breakfast bar for four. Down the hallway are three bedrooms. The master has a double bed and its own private half bath. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third room has two twins. There is one full bathroom opposite the two bedrooms. Covered parking for two vehicles is offered below the house. There is also a utility room with a washer and dryer, beach chairs, and a variety of beach toys and surfboards. The outside deck runs the length of the house facing the ocean and has a table and chairs for outdoor dining or Adirondack chairs if you simply want to sit and enjoy the view.
Topsail Island is a family-oriented, casual beach community and undeveloped compared to most other beaches along the coast. Life is simple here, and there are no high-rise hotels, boardwalks or fancy restaurants. Pristine white sand beaches meet the ocean in the east, while the serene intra-coastal waterway borders the marshes and creeks on the sound side, where you can go boating or kayaking and look for great blue herons, osprey and other wildlife. There are nearby bike rentals and a bike path that goes down the entire length of the island. Our cottage is located down the road from Surf City, where there is a wide variety of restaurants, gift and beach shops, groceries and a market where you can buy fresh local seafood.
This is a spot where you can truly unwind and leave your worries behind. Plan to visit soon and enjoy our little piece of paradise on the edge of the beach!

About Sandra McCluskey
Our family is from northern Virginia and we lead the typical busy DC lifestyle. We vacationed in a lot of different beaches on the East coast before stumbling across Topsail Island a few years ago. We love the fact that it is less commercial and developed than a lot of other beach towns. It has a true local feel to it and sometimes it seems like you're stepping back in time when you visit. We chose our cottage because it was right on the water. We were tired of the rentals where you had to carry all your stuff across the road or down long walkways to reach the beach. My husband is a surfer and windsurfer so this is his little paradise. I love the long walks on the beach with my dog and simply hanging out on the deck, enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, reading in the afternoon or eating fresh steamed crabs from the Crabpot in the evening! The kids love being right on the beach, going boogey boarding or swimming, playing Frisbee or simply hanging out, and they hardly come inside during the day. Our beach cottage is our sanctuary and provides the perfect place to relax when we want to get away from it all.
