Very nice house and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this home. We visited Topsail for the first time on our honeymoon. This house had everything we needed. We didn't really bring anything with us besides our clothes and cornhole boards! Never felt like we were missing anything. Perfect location! All we had to do was walk across the street and we were on the beach. Beautiful sunrises! We went into town for lunch or dinner when we weren't cooking out on the grill. The house is perfect location...not too far from the grocery store or wonderful shops and restaurants. We went to Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach one day for a day trip...only took us about an hour to get there.

This is one of the only homes around this area with a pool and a hot tub. One of the locals we met on the beach knew exactly what house we were staying at and stated "you are staying in one of the nicest places around". It was nice to have the option of the beach or the pool. Also had one of the larger and best landscaped properties around. Can't say enough good things about this home or the owners. They have been wonderful and were always so prompt in responding to all emails. Can't wait to stay here again!

Owner's Response: It is great to see someone else enjoy North Topsail and the beach house as much as we do. We hope you can return soon. Have a wonderful summer!

Nice time!

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay at the beach cottage. Although it wasn't oceanfront, the walkway to the beach is about 4 houses down and across the street. Expect lots of sand bags around the beach due to massive beach erosion. The ocean is encroaching on the houses across the street to the point where the Marines had to set up sand bags everywhere. High tide came all the way back to the sand bags, so we had to put everything up high on top of the sandbag wall. If you are going to be cooking, here's a word of advice: bring spices. There is nothing but salt and pepper. I made that mistake, so learn from it! (The owners can't really stock things like that because people just take it. I should have known.) The house had pretty much everything you need - pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc. Even an umbrella for rainy days! We had a slight problem with the TV, but Ken responded immediately.

There are lots of local rednecks (sorry) that go down to the end of the island on the weekends, so expect a huge parade of loud 4x4's with partiers, but they don't really hang around where the house is located. Come monday, the place is as peaceful as can be! This isn't a crowded beach - lots of privacy.

All in all we had a nice stay! (Except for my son breaking his hand. If you ever need medical attention, I highly suggest the New Hanover Medical Center -- very modern and very competent staff!) We would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Preparations are being made to restore the beach which was eroded during a recent storm. In the meantime, the sand bags (placed by the town ... not the Marines) are less obtrusive if one uses the beach 50 yards to the right rather than 50 yards to the left of the beach access. As noted in the beach house information folder, a call to Charter with any questions about the TV/Internet/telephone connection, if problems arise, will serve an inexperienced user better than attempts to re-wire the system oneself. We have had no previous complaints from guests about the U.S. Marines who sometimes use the beach on the tip of the island on the weekends. It doesn't really affect use of the beach in front of the house. We all go to the beach to have a good time!"

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Topsail. Our family of six had a great time enjoying the pool, hot tub and close proximity to the beach. It was so quiet and relaxing, just what we needed. We felt at home while there, they have everything you need for your stay! We rented linens which I would suggest. We hope to be able to stay at the house again in the future. Ken was super nice to work with.

Little Slice of Heaven...

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here right before Easter in March. It was a little chilly but sunny almost every day!

We are a family of 4 with young boys.

Pros:

Location is 1 row back from the ocean

House is on a corner lot

House has POOL AND HOT TUB (the pool was chilly in March) but the hot tub was perfect.

House is nice size with 2 bathrooms and made us feel right at home.

House has washer and dryer- we can back from vacation with no dirty clothes!

House has a little piece of grass on the side for kids to play (we did an Easter egg hunt and the kids just loved it)

House is fully stocked and they really thought of everthing.

They even had beach chairs and sand toys in the laundry room.

We got to see all the military activity from the nearby camp. (mostly helipcopters)

We took rides to beach at the end of the island and the park about 2 miles down the road for the kids to play

Cons:

The only real con we found with this house is you cannot get beach access in front of the house as they have massive sandbags up and down the beach. Hopefully that will be cleared up soon.

Overall, we loved our stay and would return. On the way in we stopped in surf city at the new walmart and got all the groceries we would need for the week--the house is on the north end of the island and a drive from the walmart. We did a day trip to Wilmington and went to the Battleship North Carolina and ate at the Copper Penny (both great places).

Can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: A good time can be had even pushing Spring! Should point out for Walmart lovers that the one in Surf City is not the closest one to the house, although the privacy of the north end of the island does mean that it is six miles to the nearest busy commercial area. The beach is currently being restored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and will be completed by the end of this month (April 2016). The closest beach access will be four doors down at the end of Oyster Lane...... a one minute walk from the end of the driveway.

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot do this place justice!! First of all, the house is located on a corner lot and very easy to drive to and you don't feel crowded between neighbors.

Next, the house was immaculate and fully stocked with pots, pans , utensils , plates/bowls , serving platters and even a cutting board. There's an outdoor shower and washer /dryer room underneath the house.

The pool and hot tub give you options and being walking distance from the beach is not bad either.

It rained one entire day and there were enough board games to keep us busy--they even have Trivial Pursuit which I remember playing as a kid .

I plan to return to this house and will be recommending this place to all my friends.

Thanks.

Car: recommended

North Topsail Beach, located at the top of Topsail Island, offers relaxing beach enjoyment on beautiful beaches and also has some of the best surf fishing on the coast. It is a truly great family vacation destination, and is home to some excellent restaurants and the occasional beach bar for the adult members of the family.
