Topsail Island House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Give us a call today to book your getaway!

Wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect place for a family get away. The open layout of the kitchen, dining area and living room was wonderful for all of us to gather around at meal times without being closed in. The bedrooms were all good size and beautifully decorated with plenty of bathrooms too. The only challenge we had was deciding who got which room! The decks look out over the ocean and we spent many hours visiting and enjoying the views. Having the private pool was huge with us having smaller children, especially when they decided they had enough of the beach. Being so close to the beach we were able to see the sun rise each morning, or enjoying evening walks, and even some late night crab hunting. The channel is a short walk away to watch the sunset and perfect for kayaking. This home is in the perfect spot to be able to do so many things and I would definitely come back.

It is with great pleasure that I write this review. The home is beautiful and very comfortable. The elevator helped everyone get settled in quick, and made it possible for all to stay and visit. Everyone enjoyed their stay and loved the view of the ocean. Time spent in the hot tub and swimming pool was relaxing and refreshing. We could not ask for a better place to gather and enjoy the beach. Our daughter was married this weekend on the beach, so we had guests coming and going all week. Everyone visiting commented that the view was AWESOME as we watched the dolphins from the front deck. We made use of the community boat pier and had great boating weather. Thank You for making our stay, hassle free and at such a reasonable cost. Your home is definitely a JEWEL OF THE ISLE

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row our Ladies Sunday School Class has stayed at this beach house. We love it. It is across the street from the beach but really oceanfront because no other houses can be built in front of it. It is very spacious and laid out very well. The Kitchen is very well set-up which is a must for me.

Close to restaurants and other activities. We look forward to renting this house again same time next year.

Thanks Lisa for working with me and making our stay possible!

Beautiful, comfortable home with perfect beach and waterway access and lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

For the past decade, our extended family has started the summer at the beach, and we've stayed at Jewel of the Isle for (we think) the past seven years. We look forward to returning next year. This house is perfect! The home is situated with a direct view of the ocean and one block from a pier over the intracoastal waterway. The home is lovely, comfortable, and luxurious. The bedrooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The living area and numerous dining spaces create a perfect, open area for relaxing. The pool is lovely. From the second and third floor porches, there is a direct ocean view, and the beach access is just across the street. The beach area really is just for the homes on the one-block street, so it is very calm and private. Also, at the other end of the street (just a block away), there is a pier and dock over the waterway for the homes on the street, which is a lovely spot for fishing and watching the sunset.

We've really enjoyed staying at this home for many years. It is a large, comfortable home that easily accommodates our large family. The owners have been very responsive to emails and always have the home perfectly prepared for our arrival.

We are very grateful for the ways that this home has helped our family to get together every year, share with one another, laugh, and create new memories. Thank you so much to the owners for opening their home to us!

The pictures don't say enough about how beautiful this property is - inside and out! Lisa was great to work with - quick communication replies. Our group loved the spacious rooms, breathtaking views from the balconies and the location. It is a short walk the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway. You will not be disappointed in choosing this rental for your vacation getaway. We would definitely like to return again in the future. ~Brian
