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!

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time renting this home and it worked out great! We usually stay in the South end of the island, but this location was even better - very close to all the surf city restaurants/shopping. We had 6 adults, 2 children and 1 baby. The space was plenty, no issues. We do cook a lot and there was plenty of kitchen accessories, plates etc to get by. It's not as much as you would have at home, but enough to get by for the week. The view is the best part, looking right over the ocean. You do have to cross a small road to get to the beach, but you are oceanfront!! Also the home had a lot of beach toys for the kids, so we didn't have to buy any! The only negative is the community pool is small and the chairs were in bad shape. Whoever is in charge of the condo association should look into upgrading the pool area. Overall great place and the dive bar next door is a nice place to have a cold one. The best restaurant on the island is Beach Shop Grill, but it's on the South end of the island. It's expensive, but well worth it. Also a good half day trip is taking a boat taxi to shell island or renting jet ski's. Fun Fun!! We will consider this property again in 2017!

Awesome Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing hidden treasure!! The Island was adorable, so many fun things to do, the ocean was beautiful and the Condo was AMAZING!!! Everything in the condo was top of the line. Beginning with the Gorgeous kitchen, outfitted with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, to each beautifully decorated bedroom, with comfortable beds and numerous flat-screen TVs, to the spacious, well maintained bathrooms. The Ocean View was Stunning, and we loved checking out the local activities, such as the Turtle Sanctuary. We would definitely recommend trips to this beautiful island and stays here, thanks to the fantastic accommodations. The only problem we had was the fact that we had to leave.

Fall Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four slept very comfortably in this airy, spacious condo. The beach is just down the stairs and across a quiet dead-end street so was easy and safe for all of us to run back and forth from beach to condo all day long. The stunning view of the beach was our backdrop for all meals in the open kitchen/living/dining room on the top level. There are a lot of stairs so would recommend bringing baby gates if your kids are under 3. In terms of location, the stretch of beach is nice, some fishing going on, but probably not as much during peak season. There is a funky little dive bar next door with a pool table, but other nightlife would require car or bike. An organic market is nearby too. There is a closet on the ground level with chairs and beach toys and an outdoor shower that just made everything so easy with the kids. In general was the perfect spot for our family vacation.

The View. The View. And The View.

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacationed in Top Sail for the first time this year and everyone agreed it will not be our last. In addition to our young family (3.5 year old son & 22 month old daughter), a mother and sister joined us and the condo was a perfect fit.


We found the condo to be perfectly located as it allowed us to come & go for nap time, diapers, etc. while not creating a huge ordeal. You are truly a sand dune away from the water.

While everything is very nice, the 3rd floor balcony is the true star. We started and ended each day enjoying the unobstructed, 180° panoramic view of the ocean. When the kids were napping, I was completely happy hanging out on the balcony as you feel like you are still sitting on the beach.


The water temperature in mid-July was perfect and there is so much beach that you are never crowded.


I was a bit hesitant going into the vacation as I wasn't sure how much there was "to do" in Topsail/Surf City. However, we were looking for a low-key spot and decided to give it a try as we knew we didn't want a touristy, crowded spot like Myrtle Beach.

In the end, we found the town to be awesome. It has the low-key vibe and we spent most of our time at the beach, but we also rented wave runners, checked out the Turtle Hospital, played mini-golf and enjoyed dinner out a few nights. Max's Pizza and Fractured Prune Donuts were a hit.


If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation with incredible ocean views, book this place. You will love it.

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!
