About the property

4 Bedrooms 3 Full Bathrooms Right on the Beach

You can't get closer to the beach than this! The beach is at the end of an expansive well furnished deck. Views and ocean breezes are phenomenal. Sit on one of the quaint benches at the top of the stairs leading down to the beach and you have found the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sunrise over the ocean, the activities on the beach by day and the stars at night -- and just a few steps down and you're on a perfect pristine beach with a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. There are two outdoor showers and a two person hot tub on the deck. Have a soak, relax and take in the beauty all around you.

A comfortably furnished, well decorated main floor is just one flight of steps up from ground level. Two of the four bedrooms and full bath with tub and shower are off of the living room on this floor. One of these guest rooms off of the living room is a second master bedroom with its own bathroom. A large top floor master suite has its own private balcony with spectacular views. There's even a large jacuzzi in this master with its own stunning views of the ocean.

There is a fourth, small bedroom with two twin beds on the ground floor entered from a clean garage -- some guests have said it's good choice for teens, college aged kids, or two adult(s) who like being on their own with a little extra privacy and quietude while the living room, kitchen and a bath are just one flight up.

Linens and towels are provided at no additional charge and you will even find all the beds made for you upon your arrival. (No need to rent sheets and towels as you must with most beach house rentals).

A very clean, coastal chic environment is ready for you to just kick back and enjoy. It's all yours, a place to call your own in a uniquely enjoyable beach home called Blue Roof.

The kitchen was remodeled in January 2017 and is fully equipped, with beautiful granite counter tops, lots of cabinets, a pantry, modern appliances, a variety of new, clean pots and pans, cooking and serving utensils, and nice place settings for all. It adjoins the dining area.

There is cable tv and wireless internet throughout.

Very nice linens and towels are provided at no additional cost and all of the beds will be made for you upon arrival! (check most other beach houses that may expect you to rent your linens and towels)

About Nancy and George Bolts

We are a happily married couple with one twenty-four year old daughter. We have lived and built successful careers for ourselves in six different cities over the course of our 39 year marriage -- in Kansas City, Houston, NYC-Fairfield, CT, Dallas, and Raleigh, NC. We now live in the historic district of downtown Wilmington, NC. In the off season we enjoy being on Topsail Island.

We have two Labradoodles named Zeus and Sandy who we are crazy about and two very spoiled kitties named Gabe and Tuck. We enjoy walking, either on the beach right behind Blue Roof or to the Wilmington's classic riverfront which is only three blocks from our home. During the spring, fall and summer we love sharing Blue Roof with vacationers from near and far and extending a welcoming and carefree holiday to each and every one.

Nancy enjoys reading and interior decorating. George enjoys gardening, home repairs, maintaining our 125 year old home and projects in and around Blue Roof.

Nancy and George Bolts purchased this house in 2009

Why Nancy and George Bolts chose North Carolina

When I first crossed the theshold into this home I felt a positive energy and just paused to take in its well designed, welcoming environment, right on the beach. Sold!

What makes this house unique

Before us, Blue Roof was owned by a renowned builder both on this island as well as up and down the southern coast. When he came upon a vintage beach cottage, he fell in love with its unique charms and proximity to both town and beach. The cottage had seen better years, but he purchased it and set about renovating it to its former glory. It ultimately became his retirement home and center for enjoyment with his wife, their kids and grandkids -- which he did for years. He had created a distinctive home with splendid use of space and unique special touches. When finished with his labor of love, a true sparkling jewel of a home appeared. Now it is our home and we feel like we have that legacy to uphold as we continue to treasure Blue Roof year after year.

Welcome to Blue Roof beach house on North Topsail Beach, North Carolina! It's a little more than 2 miles to Surf City where you will find great shops and restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisine types and atmospheres. If you'd like our recommendations just let me know!

Shopping in Surf City Crab yields a fabulous selection of fresh, beautiful seafood just unloaded off the boats of local fisherman. Blue Roof has a large deck on which to sit and sunbathe and watch for dolphins frolicking just off the shore. People enjoy visiting the Topsail Island Sea Turtle Sanctuary that is nearby and one August a sea turtle actually made its nest right at the bottom of our stairs! (and we worked together with those who volunteer to protect them) A walk on the beach at nighttime is a special treat -- you will be accompanied by scurrying little crabs for one thing. Children seem to find this especially amazing and memorable. Take a dip in the two person hot tub that is maintained year round for your enjoyment. Those in the master suite have their own large jacuzzi tub and will enjoy its private balcony. Blue Roof is perfect to have a really romantic getaway or a family can stay and create the best vacation together ever. Many of our guests return year after year as they have come to see Blue Roof as their own beach home away from home. They are fond of its unique charm and coastal personality. We hope you will be our next enchanted guests! Sincerely, Nancy and George

Wonderful Get away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach house! We had a wonderful time beach combing and store is close enough to get what you need. The hot tub was just right for us. (2 adults) We had one minor issue and the owner took care of it right away. We slept to the sound and view of the ocean. The view was breath-taking. It was just right for our family of four. Exactly what we needed!

Owner's Response: The very small tear in the one screen has been repaired. The kitchen (remodeled in January 2017) is well equipped with sparkling clean amenities. All of our appliances are checked and are working properly. We have spoken to our cleaning ladies stressing the importance of meticulous cleaning before each and every guest. We work very hard to make sure all our guests have a wonderful stay, that not only meets but exceeds their expectations. Many of our guests return year after year -- some even twice a year which is the ultimate compliment! As added testament to the happiness of our guests please see all of our other four and five star reviews. Our best, George and Nancy

Beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Blue Roof this July. A few things to mention. The hot tub is for 2 people only and had a lot of sand in it when we arrived. The upstairs jetted tub had mold and has not been cleaned in some time. The blender has a crack so we couldn't use it and one of the shelves in the cabinet (next to the bath off kitchen) needs to be stabilized. The outside doors could use a good cleaning. You can probably get it clean with some amonia. Clearly this is a rental and it is showing signs of wear and tear. The space worked well for our family. The teenage boys stayed in the room in the garage. It's important to note that that room is in the garage and not in the main house. The upstairs master suite is lovely and a wonderful retreat. Hardwood floors throughout keep the space clean. The master bedroom could use some blinds or darker curtains. It's very bright in the morning. The deck is very nice but has little shade. I'd bring your own umbrell but I'd recommend an investment to extend the upstairs balcony to offer more shade on the deck. We brought our umbrella but the wind ripped one side a little so we left if for future use. The deck has a roped like stair case to the beach and is very difficult to climb up and down. If you have any balance issues or struggle climbing it will be hard for you. So rebuilding the stairs and painting the deck rails would significantly improve the property. The property sits close in between 2 others that have been well maintained on the exterior so the rust really shows on the Blue Roof. All would all we had an amazing time. The beach is gorgeous and quiet. Nancy was awesome to work with and I'd suggest this place for a smaller family. We had 7 and it was tight.

Beautiful house right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Walked into a clean, pretty house. Three floors with beach access directly off the deck. Master bedroom on top floor lets you lay in bed with the most beautiful view of the ocean. Jacuzzi bathtub by the windows (ahhh...) in addition to the shower. Main floor has two bedrooms, kitchen, dining and living areas. We spent most of our time on the beach, literally right off the deck, and on the deck itself, which has a small hot tub. From what we heard from our beach neighbors, we were very very lucky to have a home that has been taken cared of, where all the appliances worked, furniture is well-kept. (They weren't so lucky!)
