Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful Flip-Floppin' vacation week. Six adults and four children have more than ample room in this nicely furnished home. The kitchen is well equipped and the owners maintain the home and are responsive to any needs. For those with older family members there is an ELEVATOR and the distance to the beach is short. The view is spectacular and we enjoyed coffee on the porch in the morning and watching the sunset each evening. We bring our own beach chairs and umbrella's but the house is stocked with those as well. Whether a girls weekend or family vacation this home provides all one needs for a great time. One of the nice things is the large kitchen table that seats 10 so it's easy to feed the whole crowd. We highly recommend Flip Floppin' and we have already made a reservation for 2017.

Special Place

  • 5 of 5

My family LOVES Flip Floppin' and we plan to come back every year. The accommodations are perfect for our family with six adults and four children. Family meals are nice with the ample room and table that seats 10 comfortably (plus it has a nice high chair and pack and play for the little ones). The beach is very close and that makes for wonderful views and easy access. The home is well maintained and has all the amenities you might need. The owners are very responsive and easy to contact by email or text. I give it a 5 star rating and recommend without reservation.

Awesome beach house

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at the flip floppin beach house and we loved it. We had 2 families with 8 total children and everyone had plenty of space. We slept 3 kids in each bunk room and 2 kids in the single bedroom. Each set of parents had their own room. Very clean and decorated so nicely. We cooked most meals in and there was plenty of space at the kitchen table to seat all the kids. There is also a picnic table on the deck. Plenty of cooking items to make preparing meals easy: crock pot, griddle, toaster, platters, bowls, plates, Etc. We also used the outside BBQ grill, near the car ports, frequently during our stay. The elevator is a nice touch to help w luggage and groceries from the bottom level to the too. The beach and ocean are amazing! You're so close it seems like u can touch it! The deck drops you just steps from the water. The view is amazing from the living room, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms on the second deck. There is a two tiered deck w a walk out on the top (near the kitchen and living room) and walk out from two bedrooms below. They even have beach chairs, toys and umbrellas for guests to use at the beach. There is an outdoor shower on the deck to rinse off from the beach after a long day in the sun. Topsail beach itself is a great place to stay. I've been traveling there for years and we love it. A nice quiet beach w no congestion yet enough of shops, restaurants and activity to keep u busy. You can also access your traditional conventional shops just minutes across the island. The city of Wilmington is less than a hour away and has some great sightseeing opportunities for families. If you're seeking relaxation, this is the place to go! The owner Kathy is so wonderful to work with as well. Very attentive to our needs and willing to address any issue that arises during your weekly stay. Hands down, I would recommend this wonderful home and this amazing beach!

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. The house is very nice, lots of room. The view is amazing! We were on the deck or on the beach the entire week. Our only request would be an enclosed outside shower, :) but other than that we loved it!!

Do You Want A Good Vacation Or A Great Vacation?

  • 5 of 5

There are 3 things that are important to have a GREAT vacation. The first is location, second is the home, and third, the people you are renting from. If you get 2 right, you have a good vacation. Get all 3 rights and you have a GREAT vacation. Our stay at "Flip Floppin'" was GREAT! The location could not better. Walk off the back deck and the beach is spread out before you like honeysuckle in Virginia. It was our first time to Surf City/Topsail and the beach is beautiful. We found sharks teeth, crabs, and shells. The home has a reversed floor plan (kitchen on top) which affords a clear view of the ocean for miles when eating or being entertained. The kids found the elevator entertaining. :) Finally, the owners are good to deal with and made sure that everything we needed for the beach was provided.

We did have a funny thing happen. When the Obama administration forced the nation to buy TV converter boxes back in 2008/2009, we decided to get rid of television entirely. Fast forward to our vacation--we couldn't figure out how to get the TV to work! They have a tuner, dvd, etc (all the bells and whistles) and I felt like Rip Van Wrinkle. LOL.

Lastly, Topsail Island is typical of many beach locales in that there is a lack of really good restaurants (unless you like beach fare). The one we did find that we liked is Beach Shop and Grill. They are $$$, but very close to the house. Otherwise, I would recommend taking your own food down with you and utilizing the beautiful kitchen this home provides.

You can rent this home in full confidence that you will have a GREAT vacation.
