SURF CITY'S 5-STAR CONDO!
(a sampling from reviews below:)
'5 STARS: Great Beach Townhouse across from the Beach. What we loved about Sea Star was having 4 bedrooms 3.5 bathrooms, loads of balconies, a slightly more upscale kitchen, and being literally right across from the beach.'
'5 STARS: Wonderful place to stay. ... With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths it was perfect for everyone. ... The pool was great and the beach was perfect. ... The kitchen was roomy and love the granite counters. Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us.'
'5 STARS: Our first night there one of my students said 'I wish this was my house, this is my dream house'. It really was awesome. Loved the view of the ocean, the spacious bedrooms and living space and the updated bathrooms and kitchen. I hope to stay here again. Wireless internet was a bonus!'
'5 STARS: We had a wonderful time. The beach was so close and the view was great from the upper desk. We cooked in 4 nights and had everything we needed. ... We seemed to have more room at this condo in the family room area than the other places in the same complex. ... The condo was beautiful inside. We would love to go back there next summer!'
'5 STARS: Great Location. We enjoyed our stay at Mayberry@Sea Star. Great access to the beach. The photos accurately reflect the property and the owner was helpful in answering our questions.'
'5 STARS: Our Wedding Dream. ... the house was perfectly set up for everyone's needs. The place is decorated very nicely and attention to little details. House was clean and welcoming. We will definitely be back.'
'5 STARS: Condo is great, location wonderful and beach beautiful. ... My granddaughter wishes she lived there. We played on the beach like we were kids again. We also enjoyed sitting and talking on the deck at nite while watching planes fly by and even a few shooting stars!!! Look forward to another visit. '
'5 STARS: We had a wonderful sunny week at the beach. We loved being so close to the ocean. What a view! The children played in the water and looked for seashells and sea glass. ... We look forward to coming again soon.'
'5 STARS: So close to the beach!! Loved having an oceanview. We liked that there was enough room to accommodate our group (8) easily and we weren't crammed as we have been in past condo. Too cold for the pool during Spring Break, so we'll just have to come back this summer =) ... Thanks for a great time!'
'5 STARS: This place is the definition of serenity. The upstairs layout was perfect for our nightly family dinners. We loved having the two master bedrooms and the ocean view was breathtakingly beautiful. We will definitely be back---soon!'
Topsail Island is wonderfully slow-paced and family-friendly. This beautiful modern luxury condo, with ocean view, community pool, four decks and master-bedroom jacuzzi, is owned by the author and photographer of 'Topsail Island: Mayberry by the Sea.' It is just one-half block from the beach and two decks have views of the ocean. Located in northern Surf City, near North Topsail Beach, the home is 2 miles from the shopping/restaurant center of the island.
The home has four bedrooms, including two master-bedroom suites. One suite includes a jacuzzi-type whirlpool tub and a pool view; the other has an ocean view. The home has two other bedrooms, each leading to a deck overlooking the pool. (Guests have access to the pool.) There are five beds – king, 2 queens, 2 twins – plus a two-person pullout sofa. (You provide towels and bed linens: your own or try either Me and Mom Cleaning or Sunsational Rentals, which deliver/pick up.) Coastal-style furniture, seascape paintings/prints and other island art decorate the home. (No smoking, please.)
A large open living area includes the kitchen and also has an outdoor deck overlooking the pool. Luxury abounds throughout this home, including such items as ceiling fans throughout, nine-foot-tall ceilings, granite counters and tile floors.
Other amenities: keyless electronic door lock; indoor and outdoor dining tables; covered parking for three vehicles; deck chairs and ocean breezes; outdoor shower; high-speed wireless internet; 72-channel cable.
You'll fall in love with both Topsail and this home!

FROM THE AUTHOR: 'We bought our first home on Topsail and it's been perfect: a wonderful three-bedroom home with fenced yard. But because it only sleeps 6 (or 8 at the most), it isn't big enough when the extended family comes. So we were looking for a second property in the immediate area.
What we found amazed even us: a luxury 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath condo with incredible amenities, not to mention the Atlantic Ocean half a block away. Just fantastic. It is a joy to be in.
Many, many, many.
Start with ocean views -- from two separate decks.
Then there's a pool -- and two decks look out on the pool.
Don't forget the two master bedrooms (yes, two masters), each with a private deck.
Then there are luxury features throughout -- like a jacuzzi-type whirlpool tub, tile floors, granite counters, high ceilings with ceiling fans, etc. Throw in beautiful furniture and decor, as well as coastal art throughout the home.
It's the perfect place and only a two-minute walk from the beach. Well-behaved pets welcome.
