Overview

About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

My family, who has had a decade-long love affair with sleepy Topsail Island, searched high and low for the perfect beach house here. As soon as we crossed the threshold of this 7-bedroom, 6.5 bathroom home in Surf City, we knew we’d found it.

So, what drew us to our “Jewel of the Isle”?

We love that it feels breezy, open, and expansive. Huge windows let in beams of North Carolina sun and views of the glittering blue green sea. In fact, there’s a water view, of either the ocean or the sound, in every single room of the house.

Plus the layout—with three floors, including a big, bright, lofted living area—provides plenty of room (the space is perfect for our large family—we bet it would be for yours, too!). The outdoor space also took our breath away, with its multilevel decks, sparkling, private swimming pool, and a hot tub on the second-floor deck, where you can watch rolling waves, leaping dolphins, and the occasional shrimp boat passing through. It’s also a great spot in evening, with the ocean bathed in the orange and pink hues of sunset.

And we loved the house’s one-of-a-kind architectural elements, like the ship watch perched on top of the house—its four windowed walls, one at each compass point, give an unparalleled view of the Atlantic and the sound. We decided this room would be best as a bedroom and outfitted it with a queen-sized bed. Just a warning: your group may fight over claim to this unique, fourth-floor sleeping space!

The third-floor living area has sweeping ocean views, and features a grouping of comfortable sofas and chairs, plus eating space for a whopping 16 people (with a breakfast nook, formal dining area, and bar stools in one common area)—all on top of glossy, Brazilian cherry wood floors.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream in stainless steel, granite counter tops, and spacious cabinetry, plus a breakfast bar with 4 bar stools. Pour a few glasses of wine and keep the cook company!

Add an elevator to make hauling your luggage easy, two king-sized master suites with ocean views and attached baths (one with a Jacuzzi tub), three more bedrooms with their own en suite baths, a kid’s bedroom with two twin trundle beds, flat-screen televisions in every single bedrooms, a laundry room, linen service in peak season, and a day dock for boat rentals, and you have one perfect beach house to call yours for a week.

Our guests are as consistently pleased with this house as we are—in fact, we often hear that it exceeds even their high expectations! We hope to count you among our happy guests.

Perfect college reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for a week with three other families. In total, there were 8 adults and 8 children, under 9 years old. It was spacious enough to offer everyone a private retreat, but small enough that you didn't feel separated or lost. The location was excellent; 50 steps or so to the beach and 100 steps to the inlet, on the corner of a sweet little cul-de-sac. It was CLEAN (even toward the end of the rental season) and beautiful. During our stay, we discovered a loose newel on the lower deck, which was concerning as we had two two year olds in our group. I contacted the owner and it was repaired within 24 hours. Her response time was excellent. The home stayed cool and comfortable even with lots and lots of going and coming. The pool was great, though a bit small when we were all together, and the hot tub was an excellent addition. The kitchen contained everything we needed; tons of dishes and even a pot large enough for a low country boil. You should stay here. It was really really great.

Property was well kept and in great condition!

  • 4 of 5

Lisa answered my calls immediately with any questions I had and was very accommodating. Make sure to get the insurance for the property. We had an issue in one of the bathrooms with the toilet that was a freak accident(a cracked water tank reservoir from the seat against the flush handle and was expensive to repair) and the insurance covered it! The view from the third floor great room with two large sliding glass doors and bedroom sliding glass door was a million dollar view of the ocean! The elevator was extremely useful for moving all the luggage and bags in. Not a good idea if you have children to let them ride in it unless an adult is with them! The pool was on the small side but the kids loved it and Lisa had a maintenance company there twice to keep the pool clean. The outside showers were great for cleaning up before going in the house also from the beach or pool.

Extremely clean! All the accommodations of home but on a luxury level. Owners thought of everything.

  • 5 of 5

The view is absolutely breathtaking from all levels of house. From the pool, beach then hot tub at night it was all around perfect. No reason to leave this amazing properly once you have arrived. Kitchen is fully admitted and perfect for entertaining family / friends for meals. This house is decorated top notch. All the bedrooms are well thought out with privacy. The Master is perfect all the way around. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this house.

Fabulous in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful time staying at this home for several years. The home is beautiful and comfortable. The view of the Atlantic is stunning, and the access to the beach could not be easier. We love every moment from morning to night in the house, at the pool, at the neighborhood pier on the waterway, and the beach. We love how it almost feels like a private beach, with just a few other families nearby. The owners have been easy to communicate with, and we are so grateful that they have made their lovely home available to us. If you're considering booking the house, look no further. Life is ideal at the Jewel of the Isle!

Great home for all the family while we were in Topsail

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well equipped but would have like a kettle to boil water for tea😀 And maybe a few more plastic coat hangers.
