ISLAND STYLED, FAMILY-FRIENDLY, PET FRIENDLY, PEACEFUL BEACH COTTAGE

Topsail Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 & 1/2 Baths, Beach Cottage Steps Away From Private Beach Access

Hidden treasure is an island style beach cottage situated amongst beautiful old oak trees. The house is located on a quite lane about a block long that has the ocean at one end and the sound at the other. Though we are on an interior lot, it is just steps (approximately 80 yards) to either the private beach access or to the small ramp that you have access to the sound from. The cottage itself was fully renovated in 2008-- the interior was gutted and the entire space was redone. It has an open floor plan for the living and kitchen area and all areas look out to the trees. A screened porch and a rear deck can both be accessed from the main living area. A deck lines one side of the house that leads from the screened porch to the covered front porch. Sitting on the screened porch is like being in a tree house-- branches arch gracefully all around you providing a pathway for squirrels and birds to bound from one to another. You can hear the ocean most days from this spot-- it is relaxation at its best. The cottage is about 900 square feet but feels larger because of the open floor plan and raised ceiling height in the living room. The floors are tile through out-- which is easy to clean. The two bedrooms provide sleeping for four-- one has a queen bed the other has a full size. Again it is hard to describe how wonderful it feels waking up to the sound of birds and the ocean and seeing the tree branches surrounding you. Totally relaxing!! Hidden Treasure is perfect for a family getaway, a couples retreat, or girls week away.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only

My husband and i own and operate a cabinetry business in Hampstead, NC. We have been in business since 1979. We have two wonderful sons-- both are working with us now. As a family we have always loved the beach and the outdoors in general. My husband taught the boys to fish as soon as they could get in a boat and so we were always at the beach or on the sound as they were growing up. My husband loves fishing and I love the beach so when we found the cottage and bought it-- it became our project together. As a family we have put in many hours working on remodeling and fixing up what was an old and tired place. Now it is a place where we enjoy spending time with friends and family. We have celebrated many milestones at the beach-- everything from a fabulous 70's themed b-day party to a 60th birthday gathering for my husband this past summer. All are wonderful memories. There just is no truer form of relaxation than time spent at the beach. We cherish our time here and always look forward to coming back.

Julie Johnson purchased this cottage in 2007

We came across our home on the island by chance but immediately fell in love with the location. The old live oak trees, quaint street and closeness to both the ocean and the sound made this a one of a kind get away home. The house itself needed work so after purchasing it we remodeled the entire interior and continue to improve the exterior as we can. This cottage has the most peaceful and beautiful setting, it truly gives you that 'tree house' feel. We begin to relax the moment we step out of the car.

The house is situated right in the midst of a maritime forest. It is close to both the ocean and the sound. The beach is just 80 yards away down the lane. You do cross over the street to get to the beach access but it is a private access. The unique thing about the beach access is that there are no houses on the beach front right at our beach. This makes it less crowded and really quite private to our street. There is also a ramp to the sound at the other end of the street. This ramp is just right for a jet ski or a kayak. Our area is also perfect for walking or biking as there are sidewalks and bike lanes.

Relaxing Vacation at Hidden Treasure

  • 4 of 5
We will definitely return to Hidden Treasure!
The house experience fits the owner's description. It is very comfortable and well-appointed. We all particularly enjoyed the kitchen and the outdoor shower area plus easy beach access.
The only let down was the sound access. It is a very small pier that is in poor condition. It is located between 2 private piers and was not very inviting.

We enjoyed the beach and the privacy was very good.
We fished off of the Jolly Roger pier - caught lots of spot using blood worms.
We walked out onto the South Point for at sunset and it was absolutely beautiful out there. We also enjoyed driving our 4x4 out on the North Point for beaching and fishing on another day.
We took a sunset booze cruise on the sound with Captain James - this was one of our favorite things during our vacation. We highly recommend this!
We will eat more meals at home on our next trip as the culinary arts seem to be a lost art on the island - we tried several recommended restaurants and didn't have any quality meals.

Wonderful Quiet Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at a few properties on Top Sail Island. This one was my favorite. It was cozy with alot of thought put into the outdoor living areas. Wonderful balconies and a wonderfully decorated area under the house to enjoy the outdoors. We woke up to the birds every morning and had just a 3 minute walk to the beach. The place is made to be pet friendly. We took my son's dog up to see him after him not being able to visit home for over a year (he was deployed). Roxi very much enjoyed the house and her walks on the beach. Julie was wonderful to work with. Very comfortable and homey feeling. I will definitely stay here again if given the chance.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our 2 dogs stayed at Hidden Treasure for our anniversary and loved it! The house was perfectly located and really made us feel like we were secluded even though we weren't. The house was also well appointed and very clean, which always makes a vacation that much more enjoyable. We left a couple items accidentally, and the owner even contacted us and was accommodating regarding our picking up the items. I'm hoping that we can return soon.

Our Stay

  • 4 of 5
Dear Julie,

We had a wonderful time at your home. The area was quiet and it was enjoyable seeing nature. The homes blended in nicely together even though you were surrounded by daily living it was like you were by yourselves. We enjoyed our walks on the secluded beach. The wild life was amazing we saw dolphin’s and pelican’s daily and on our last day we had a big surprise we saw a whale. The weather was good. On the day we left it rained, but that was alright. The cottage was well stocked if you wanted to cook or entertain the family. We would recommend the cottage for others. The community was friendly and helpful. It was nice and relaxing. We enjoyed our anniversary stay.

Topsail island is a great place for families and fun in the sun. It is also a wonderful retreat for couples wanting to find some time for relaxation. Our beaches are beautiful and not crowded (at our section)-- perfect for just laying back in the sun or walking and enjoying the surf and a ocean breeze. For an evening out, the area has many fine dining opportunities from seafood to gourmet or take the family out for pizza--we have something to please anyone here. Topsail is a wonderful beach town-- visit the quaint beach shops or take a walk around the walkways at the sound park located at the bridge in surf city. I personally love the walkways on the sound and walk our dog there, the water is beautiful and you can sit and watch people fishing or the boats traveling the sound. If you are in for some adventure take a boat ride on the pirate ship, docked right in surf city. This ship passes by our section of the sound at hidden treasure and it always sounds as if the guests aboard are having a wonderful time. You can also rent bikes if you enjoy biking and ride the bike paths exploring the island at your own pace. Be sure to visit the famous sea turtle hospital or the missiles and more museum, i recommend both especially for the children. So whether you enjoy sunning and just relaxing, fishing on the surf or on one of our piers, or visiting the sea turtle hospital there is something to keep you occupied here on beautiful topsail island.
