About Ken Sachs

2nd floor deck off kitchen/living area overlooking Atlantic on Thanksgiving 11-26-09. Sunny & 65 degrees. The beach is great any time of the year. You've got the whole beach to yourself! 11-27-10 update...came back for 2010 Thanksgiving and we got into the 70's-the weather was great again!

Ken Sachs purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Ken Sachs chose Topsail Island

After searching up and down the southeastern Atlantic coast we found the perfect spot to buy our '2nd Home' to get away from things. Surf City (Topsail Island) provided peace and tranquility and 2 hours from our main home. Unlike many of the other alternatives Topsail was less commercial (traffic) and developed, but there were still many conveniences within 5 minutes. Beaches were not crowded no matter what time of year. There are plenty of other options besides going to the beach (i.e. fishing, golfing, tennis, biking, etc.) but we never get tired of the beach. There is also a good assortment of restaurants with very affordable price ranges, and if you get tired of going out you can always pick up fresh seafood from 'The Crabpot!' Our beachhouse is our sanctuary and provides the 'therapy' we need to get away from it all.

What makes this townhome unique

Never bored. Watch the sunrise (or moonrise) from the privacy of your own deck or bedroom. Walk the beach. Fish. Swim. Sun. Run. Take bike-rides (island has bike lanes). Eat. Play monopoly or cards. Watch movies. Surf the net. Shop. Do NOTHING!

Amazing condo.

  • 5 of 5

This place is phenomenal!! The ramp to the beach , directly outside the condo, is key and very convenient. Plenty of room/space for families. You won't go wrong renting this place. The 1st floor mud/sand room is an amazing convenience to keeping the place clean through the week. The beach is great and not crowded at all!

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I would like to keep this little piece of heaven secret but I can't do that to the owner. Steps from the beach, very comfortable with a very responsive and helpful owner. Plenty of restaurants in the area with convenient grocery stores for those things you forgot to bring.

Incredible ocean views

  • 4 of 5

My family of 8 had a wonderful week at this very spacious well kept condo. We had 6 adults and 2 ten year old girls. We all loved the decks on each floor. My husbands favorite place was on the upper deck in the afternoon once the sun went down. You can sit there and just look at the ocean and it's such a peaceful feeling.

Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, just bring your food. TV's in every bedroom and of course the den. The owners have everything you need to have a great vacation and our family really enjoyed it.

Amazing beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. My wife, two young kids (>4yrs) and parents all fit comfortably. The location is excellent, beach access was incredibly convenient and not at all crowded. The house itself is beautiful, full-featured, well decorated, and just a pleasure to stay in. The owners and property manager were easy to work with. The pool is close, not huge, but nice as an alternative to the beach. Plenty of gear to cook with. The master shower on the 2nd floor is outstanding. Only gripe - only got about eight or nine cable channels - but we ended up streaming pretty much anything we wanted to watch on rainy days with stuff that we brought, so it wasn't a big deal.

Do yourself a favor and book this place!

Wonderful beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Topsail! There were 6 of us (my husband and I and four adult children) and we were very comfortable. The set up is great! The outside shower and entry on the first level was very convenient. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen had the necessary items and plenty of room. We could fit all 6 of us around the table for dinner but not in the TV area without pulling in chairs. An extra chair in there would be great but I'm not sure where you could put it. We did hang a sheet over the window in our bedroom to block out some of the sun. There are blinds but we wanted to sleep in a little on vacation and the sun woke us up early! You also have to carry things up and down the stairs since there are 3 levels.

The view from the balcony of the ocean is great! The beach was an easy walk over the dunes and it was lovely! The water was clear and blue. We founds lots of shells, sand dollars and shark teeth! Extra sand chairs in the unit were a great help.

The island is a very residential area and my kids complained there was not much to go do other than the beach. We did all 3 jigsaw puzzles we found and played games. But that was ok with me! I loved it and we all agreed we could go back there again! We would take more games and things to do inside. The swimming pool is small and we didn't spend much time there. But it was ok.

The owner is very responsive to questions and was easy to work with. Overall this was a great rental!

Great beach family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay for a week long family vacation. There were only four of us, so we had plenty of space. But with a one and four year old the extra space was a great bonus to have so both kids could have their own spaces. There are essentially two master bedrooms - so in the future we would definitely consider coming back with another family. The unit is very clean and well maintained and has all the amenities you would need for a week away from home. Views of the ocean are great as well as the ocean sounds and you really are just mere steps to the beach. You will not be disappointed!
