Our beautiful, spacious four bedroom, four bath cottage, Beach Breeze, is located on Topsail Island and provides the best of both worlds. A one-minute walk will take you to the ocean where the oceanfront property is undeveloped providing a long stretch of quiet, secluded beach. A large gazebo built on the sand dunes provides a shaded place to sit and watch the sunrise or your children playing on the beach. A one-minute walk in the other direction will lead you to our sound pier from which you can watch the sunset or cast your fishing line. Beach Breeze is situated in a lovely grove of ancient live oak trees that are as tall as the house. You can see both the ocean and the sound from the upper of the two large decks on the front of the cottage. Whatever your preference, there's a place for you on one of the decks. Sunbathers can stretch out on the upper deck while those who prefer shade will find a quiet place to sit and read in the swing on the lower deck.

Area: Topsail Island is a family oriented beach. Visitors enjoy Topsail, returning year after year, because of the many miles of uncrowded sandy beaches. Perfect for swimming, walking, sunbathing, fishing, or simply relaxing. You will fall in love with the island. Our neighborhood is located on the southern end of Topsail. There are no oceanfront homes in the vicinity of our beach access, so you will find the beach in this area very private. But don't limit yourself to the beach. Be sure to spend some time enjoying the sound where you will see interesting wildlife.
Avoid the hassles and heartaches of dealing with a commission based rental agent who is managing dozens if not hundreds of other properties. We have used agents in the past (not with Beach Breeze) but decided Beach Breeze was simply too nice to turn over to an agent and risk a repeat of past problems. With Beach Breeze, you speak directly with the owners who are responsive to your needs. References available upon request.
