TREE SPIRIT RETREAT ***$300 AFTER LABOR DAY 5 NIGHTS!***

Surf City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath

Tree Spirit, an “old island” style beach cottage on Topsail Island, has been treated energetically with Reiki, crystals and ineffable resources.

No tv, no phone, no clock. Come to 'be there.'

Tree Spirit Retreat is all about sharing healing energy. We welcome all who wish to bask in healing energy and nature.

Barrier islands shift, creating an auspicious environment for inner change. Topsail Island’s abundant natural attributes feature pelicans, dolphins, and constantly moving sandbars. Friends have enjoyed it and have been refreshed by their time there. We welcome new friends.

~Pet guests welcomed on a case by case basis~

Welcome to Tree Spirit!: Enter Tree Spirit through the screened porch into a great room, with bedrooms in the rear.

Tree Spirit sleeps two best, with total indoor space measuring approximately 750 square feet. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed, and the second bedroom a full sized bed. If additional beds are needed, the great room provides a fold out sofa.

Practitioners in energetic healing and related fields receive a discount.

Highlights, Sundries & Views: Appointed chiefly with handbuilt and recycled furniture & appliances, Tree Spirit features a nicely equipped kitchen with stainless steel coil-burner stove and restaurant sink. Out back is a charcoal grill. Kitchen utensils include a fondue pot, shrimp/pasta pot, crock pot, ice cream maker and other sundries, plus herbs from our gardens.

A funky outdoor bathhouse with Japanese lines and cast iron tub highlights bathing facilities, complemented by outdoor shower and footbath in front & bathroom with shower inside.

Trees come into view from most windows. A second entrance in the kitchen area leads onto an east-facing deck looking out at an enormous maritime oak with three trunks.

Reiki Attunement, The Beach & The Sound: The earth beneath and around the house as well as the house itself have been treated energetically over a period of two years, culminating with attunement. Walk one or two hundred yards in either direction to reach the beach or the sound.

When you stay at Tree Spirit Retreat, we ask that you treat it as a visit to a friend’s home. Please leave things as you found them - we do not charge a cleaning fee. In the fashion of the traditional beach bungalow, assorted light beach gear can be found on the premises.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Tree Spirit and so did our dog. We will definitely be returning. The neighbors were nice. The beach was not crowded and was just across the street. The backyard was spacious and shaded so our dog could play without getting too hot. The house was very rustic but had everything we needed. Very relaxing!!! Surf City Crab Seafood Market was the best place for fresh local seafood. Also there is a little beer and wine store beside Wings that is definitely worth checking out. The worst part was having to leave. Our return deposit came very quickly as well.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved staying at Tree Spirit. It was so nice to get away from the world and enjoy the simplicity of life. Every detail of the cottage was lovely, and I would definitely recommend staying here. Chris is wonderful to work with as well. THANK YOU :)

A UNIQUE AND CHARMING OASIS

  • 4 of 5
Tree Spirit is a charming beach cottage with a zen attitude, perfect for an escape from the redundancy of everyday life. The pictures, while a selling point for me, don't quite do justice to the ambience of this place. When you walk into the screened-in porch and glance through the window, you can tell right away that this place is something special. It's obvious that a lot of care went into the plans for this home away from home. My wife, two dogs and I had a wonderful weekend. And Chris, Tree Spirit's owner, was a pleasure to deal with over the phone and by email.

GREAT PLACE TO JUST BE AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Tree Spirit. We came down with friends, and discovered the house, while small, comfortably slept six. We slept two on the pull-out couch, and used a queen-sized air mattress in the tea room versus the two cots. Chris was super accommodating about our pets!

The beach was nice and quiet for peak season, and so close! The dock on the sound was a serene location for morning yoga and tea. The kitchen was big enough to cook great meals and we made all of our dinners in-house.

We will definitely be back! Thanks for such a restful vacation.

SUMMER FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The description listing and all details were quite accurate. Although we had a minor issue (coffeemaker), the property owner was easy to contact and the issue was resolved very quickly. :) Everything that was offered was clearly outlined in the description. We wanted a family getaway to the beach with NO phones, internet, TV..to enjoy everything around us with no distractions, and that is exactly what we got. Our dogs enjoyed the spacious back yard, as well as the beach. Most of our time was spent on the beach and at the boat dock fishing in the waterway. The neighbors were all very friendly. The road crossing to the beach access was a little busy on the weekend, but that was to be expected with all the summer beach traffic. Our deposit was refunded rather promptly. I would recommend this place, as well as return. The only recommendation for the owner I would have is to maybe replace the charcoal grill with a new one. We would have enjoyed the back yard more in the evening if we were able to grill out. Thanks, and we hope to visit again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you!
And thank you for the comment about the grill; we depend on our guests to notify us of such items and will replace it right away.
Namaste!
