Fabulous Beach Getaway for a large family!
This property delivered on everything promised. It is the perfect place for a large group with a variety of ages....there were 18 of us from 7 months to 70 years and this home provided lovely views, easily accessible beach, beach equipment, and a fully equipped kitchen. We spent most evenings on the lovely porches that surround the house enjoying a glass of wine, wonderful views and good conversation. Susan and Bob provided all the information anyone could need going to an area they had never been before, and they were very responsive to any inquiries we had before and during our visit. While we did tour around Surf City, and the information packet we received had a plethora of information about restaurants and things to do in the area, most of our group didn't want to leave the house, ocean and pool! We would recommend that you take a couple of hours to visit the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center....the line is always long, but worth the wait to see the work the volunteers are doing there. I assure you if you choose this property for your visit to Topsail, you won't be disappointed.
Outstanding home with all the comforts of home
My family goes to the beach every year so we can all get together. (18 of us). This year by far was our best year together. The home is very comfortable, extremely well equipped, located just north of all the hubbub of downtown Surf City yet close to all restaurants. The beach is very typical of NC/SC beaches and has ample beach left at high tide. There is a beach service available that will take down and put up umbrellas daily. No finer folks to deal with than the owners of FlipFlop, Robert and Susan Franks. They truly work hard to make your vacation a memorable one and it definitely was.
Fantastic beach house. Highly recommended.
My family had the great pleasure to spend a week at the Flip Flop Inn. There were 17 of us, from age 2 to 65. There were plenty of options to keep everyone relaxed and entertained. The beach is just steps away, very convenient in case you forgot anything, or just need a bathroom break or a snack. There also is a community pool which the kids did enjoy a few times.
The house itself is just beautiful. I bet it is the biggest in the community. Plenty of space for everybody. And lots of patios, Oceanside and sound side. There also is a fourth floor tower room with 360 degree views. It even has a small outdoor walkway. It really is a stunning feature that few houses in the area seem to have.
The kitchen was well appointed, multiple ovens and microwaves. It has all of the pots and pans and such to make anything you wish. Even a milkshake maker! It has a large modern fridge, and a separate ice maker which believe me is very useful. There also is a second fridge in the pantry area, also very useful. These are the kind of things that I didn't realize I should be looking for in a vacation rental, but I am glad the owners did. Speaking of the owners, they were extremely kind, pleasant, and easy to work with. You can tell they really care for their home, and it matters to them that you enjoy your stay.
The bedrooms are very nice with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are modern, especially the showers. Additionally, there is an elevator, which is nice for bringing in luggage and groceries. There was plenty of parking. We had 6 cars, I bet we could has fit 2 more without issue. We had several outstanding sunrises and sunsets, a full moon over the ocean , and a sea turtle laid a nest of eggs in the dune right by the house. There are a lot of local restaurants, ice cream shops, and parks. Some in our group went sailboarding, there are surf lessons, and you can watch the kids surfing down by the pier.
The beach by the house was active, but never crowded or intrusive.
Everything was fantastic, I had high expectations, and they were met or exceeded in every way.
**** I very highly recommend this beautiful home. ****
(I believe the owners also own the house next door if you have an even larger group. I don't recall the name of that house)
Perfection at the Beach
We used Flip Flop Inn for a family reunion and had 6 couples staying there. The house was perfect. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, which was perfect. The main living area was large enough and open enough to allow everyone to gather together and watch TV, read, cook, work on puzzles, or chat. Everyone could do what they wanted while still being a part of the group and interacting with each other.
The bedrooms are large and well appointed. The kitchen is so well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans, flatware. There are two dishwashers that made keeping up with 12 hungry people a breeze. The views are wonderful. Each balcony has it's own special view of either the ocean or the waterway. There is a spacious hot tub that got much use. The access to the beach is so close that it takes about a minute to be there. And don't worry about bringing beach chairs, they have plenty. And if you need some away time from the group, the upper floor room is perfect for movie night, reading or taking a nap. We had the opportunity to be at Flip Flop during the eclipse and the balcony off the upper floor loft area was the perfect viewing area. Even with all the rain we had (we did get two great days of sun) it was a wonderful experience for all of us. We had fun hanging out talking and eating and doing a couple of the many puzzles you can find in the house. I can't recommend this place enough! Thank you Bob and Susan for making your beautiful home available.
Best house EVER!
Bob and Susan have thought of everything. This house is amazing and we are having a wonderful time. We don't want to leave! Kitchen is so well stocked that our gourmet cooks have been in heaven. We have four generations here and all can't stop talking about this wonderful vacation. We will definitely be back!
Susan has been simply fabulous to work with and has made this the most welcoming of homes.
Amazing house in North Topsail Beach
We rented this property for our family (12 guests ranging from 2 to 69 years of age) and we could not have been happier with our experience. Sue and Bob were available to help, responsive to our questions, and accommodating in every way, from initial email contact through the completion of our stay in their home.
They have literally thought of everything in this home. The kitchen is well stocked - everything you need is there, and it's well organized so that you can find what you're looking for easily. We "only" had 12 in our party, but this home would accommodate numbers well into the twenties with the available silverware, plates, bowls, glassware, etc.
The views are wonderful - wonderful from almost every room in the home. You can see the ocean right in front of you, and the quiet water and marshland is viewable from the other side of the home. The top floor widow's peak is amazing and a fun place to spend time.
Everything in the home is spotlessly clean, and the bedding, furniture, etc are very comfortable and in excellent condition.
We had one of our best vacations at the Flip Flop Inn, and we would recommend it without hesitation. Thanks, Susan and Bob, for a wonderful week!
