OCEAN AND SOUND VIEWS FROM THIS FANTASTIC/BEAUTIFUL HOUSE-

Topsail Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

****October Weekend SPECIAL**** Stay 3 nights or more for $125.00 per night!!! We will furnish linens at no charge and waive all taxes. If you leave the home clean as you found it we will waive the $80.00 cleaning fee. Leave the linens in laundry room and we wash them so you don't even have to worry about linens. This is limited to a maximum of six people and DOES NOT include pet fee or refundable $300.00 security deposit. Where can you stay for $375.00 for a weekend and have everything included in a fantastic home across from ocean and sound???

A DELAY IN TIME went on the rental market in 2011 after being made our personal home for the previous four years. If you are looking for a place with views of Topsail sound and views of the ocean then this is the house you want. This second row ocean and sound home is located on a very nice/quiet cul-de-sac where only a dozen other homes are located. Perfect for children and pets!

.... Life is GOOD at the BEACH!!!.... SEIZE THE DAY....

PRIVATE beach access is less than a 3 minute walk. We will provide you with a beach cart, boogie boards and beach chairs as you work on your tan! There are decks off of ALL bedrooms and family room so you can enjoy all the sound and ocean views! Top Floor has new carpet in bedrooms and ceramic tile in the bathroom. There are two-three bedrooms on the top floor. One bedroom has great sound views, sliding glass doors leading onto a deck and a King size bed. The other 1-2 bedrooms have ocean views, a queen size bed with flat screen TV on the wall along with another area off this bedroom with a large closet, ocean views and 2 twin beds. Perfect for you to keep an eye on the little ones. We created a large bedroom when living in the house out of 2 bedrooms. Both of these rooms have ocean views with sliding glass doors leading out onto decks.

Downstairs you have a large living area with TV, stereo, great furniture, sleeper sofa, hardwood floors, open kitchen with bar seating, breakfast area with table, dining room with table for 6, 18' tile, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, bedroom with Iron double bed, large bathroom with ceramic tile. Kitchen is fully stocked with large side by side fridge, dishwasher, stove, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker and all of the kitchen dishes, utensils you will need plus wine glasses for those special moments.

Ground level has outdoor hot/cold shower, parking under the home for 3 cars, parking in the yard for another 3 cars and great safe area in the yard for kids to play. Cul De Sac that has very little traffic.

Marina is less than 1.5 miles, fantastic restaurants and shopping are a short walk (less than a mile), with the beach and sound access only a short distance away! This end of Topsail Island is beautiful!!! Walking and biking paths, walk around the point and watch the sunset while you play in tidal pools. During the summer months Loggerhead Turtles lay eggs along the shore that hatch during the warm summer nights. Watch Dolphins play in the surf or go fishing which is outstanding. Go kayaking in the sound, take your family for a sunset cruise on 'The Belle of Topsail', boogie boarding in the ocean or book yourself a deep sea fishing trip and catch your dinner.

We just decided to rent the house and decided not to use a rental agency so we could pass the savings along to your family. We've priced the home hundreds of dollars less than in previous years but with no commission, I can pass these savings on to you. Everyone is trying to save money and this is one of the best deals on Topsail Beach-- Please make this comfortable beach home yours for a week or a month. Life is short. CARPE DIEM...Seize the day my friends!!! Life is Short.

IF YOU ARE NEEDING 2 HOUSES THIS SPRING OR FALL FOR A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE THEN WE HAVE 2 HOUSES WITHIN 200 FEET OF EACH OTHER SO YOU COULD SLEEP A TOTAL OF 18 PEOPLE WITH EASE. THIS IS IDEAL FOR FAMILY REUNIONS, EXTENDED FAMILY GET TOGETHERS. BEACH MUSIC #291445 AND A DELAY IN TIME #335963 MIGHT BE GREAT FOR YOU.

E-MAIL OR CALL FOR MULTI-WEEK DISCOUNTS IN LOW OR MID-SEASON!

PLEASE NOTE: RENTAL IS FROM SATURDAY TO SATURDAY

Check in is at 4PM and check out is at 11AM

Bed Linens, towels, wash cloths are provided for an additional fee of $55.00 per week. This allows us to wash, dry, fold and provide clean fresh linens and towels for you - our honored guest!

About Clay McLawhon

When my family gets away to 'A DELAY IN TIME', it is our 'Piece of Paradise'. Whether we are sitting on the deck, laughing with friends, enjoying the views, walking on the beach, riding our bikes or just chillin' on the beach...it allows us to escape the stresses of life. Topsail Beach is a wonderful place for vacations. We love the sea birds and the slow, peaceful pace that Topsail offers. You can have Myrtle Beach, Outer Banks, Carolina/Kure beaches, Wrightsville Beach... We'll take Topsail Island.

Clay McLawhon purchased this house in 2005

Why Clay McLawhon chose Topsail Beach

After spending many years at Wrightsville Beach and living less than 10 miles away we got tired of dealing with the traffic, attitudes and charges for parking your car. We could almost buy a very nice meal for what it cost us to park for a day. We fell in LOVE with Topsail and once you vacation here you will fall in love also. If you vacation here every year then you know what we mean. A DeLay In Time is on a quiet cul-de-sac which is ideal for your children or your pets. We loved the convenience to the ocean and everywhere on the island.

What makes this house unique

We love our decks. During the summer this is where we live if not on the beach. We enjoy sitting out with the sun in our face, laughing, talking and hearing the birds. We also love our kitchen which is great for cooking...even though...most people don't want to cook when on vacation. You will still cook a meal or two while down so you just as well enjoy it. Buy some steaks, burgers or seafood...throw some on the gas grill or just cook inside. Some of the best food you can get is on the island.

Awesome property. LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
Good morning! We are on the road after a great time at your home. Thanks for sharing it with us! the washer is running a load of dish towels. The dishwasher is running the last of the dirty dishes. All doors are locked and the keys were left under the mat on the Oceanside. The fresh flowers, games, books and puzzles were a nice touch.

We noticed some things around the house we'd like to share with you but are by no means complaints. The electrical panel cover on outside may have been damaged by the storm and we saw shingles on the ground after storm. Not sure if they are from your home or another home.

Again, thank you so much for offering your home. We had a relaxing, enjoyable family vacation.

Hello Clay and Julie,
I just want to tell you that we had a great time at your place, weather was great your beach access was very convenient. Your home worked out very well for us. I just want to say having gates on the front and back deck worked out well for our dog, she had a great time also, she loves the beach along with the rest of us. We took a fishing charter out and did pretty well, caught a few amberjacks, shark and some sea bass.
We want to say thanks for all your help and we would consider staying at your beach home again, Topsail is a " Diamond in the Rough" that's for sure.
Thanks Again!!
Jack, Lee and Family

Owner's Response: Thank you Jack and your group. Glad to hear you loved the home, the location to beach access, the decks. Sounds like the fishing was pretty good and I know that was one thing which was important to you. Hopefully you will keep us in mind for future vacations. We are beginning to have quite a few repeat renters and we are thankful for them. Look forward to seeing you again sometime soon and thanks for the kind remarks.

Wonderful house, great decks, convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing time. We vacationed with 2 other families and the home was perfect. This house was better than our own personal home. We usually vacation at the Outer Banks or in Myrtle Beach and this was such a great change. Not all of the traffic but some really good restaurants and neat little shops. Beaches are beautiful and husbands caught some nice fish which excited him. We would highly recommend this beautiful property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for spending time at Topsail. It is such a wonderful place and nice to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of other beaches. Isn't that why you take vacation at the beach? Enjoy the sun, the water, fishing, family, a good book. Hope to see you again this summer and thank you for the kind remarks.

A Delay in Time

Beautiful location, quiet neighborhood and just a short walk to the beach. My family and I enjoyed our stay and was very grateful for the warm welcome from the owners of A Delay in Time. They were very helpful in every aspect of the rental process and of our needs when we arrived.

Excellent Location/Pet Friendly!

  • 4 of 5
Perfect spot for our 2013 family vacation which included 6 adults and three babies (all under 2) and 2 dogs. The upstairs ocean front bedroom was a great spot for my brother and sister-in-law with their two kids, since it has the queen bed along with an alcove with two twin beds. The sound-side bedroom was very large with a king size bed, and a deck with excellent views for the sunset (unfortunately we didn't realize this until the last night there). The downstairs bedroom was rather small, but was connected to the full bath on the lower level. The sound-side decks were roomy and great for hanging out. The living space had all we needed. The house needs a few updates/repairs. During our stay we had an issue with the door not locking properly, and Clay came out the next day to address the issue. Overall, fun was had by all. The beach was awesome (not crowded, soft sand, great waves for boogy boarding) and only a 2 minute walk away. With a few home repairs, this would be the perfect place!

Great Quiet Beach Location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. Clay was very accommodating and we felt like we had everything we needed. The house itself was nice and well laid out, with plenty of room for 3 couples. The beach access is very close, much closer than we were expecting, which was a great surprise. We would definitely stay here again!
