About the property

3 Bedrooms, plus bonus room, 2 Full Baths, sleeps 7.

Come relax at North Topsail Beach! Our beach cottage sits at the end of the island allowing for amazing views of the ocean, the end of the island, the sound and even a pond across the way! Fall asleep listening to the waves or the spring frogs from the pond.

North Topsail's beaches are a seaside gem. You will find soft sand, shallow tidepools for exploring, shark's teeth or shells for collecting, and deliciously warm water in which to float for hours. FAMILIES will especially love our location as the beaches are less crowded and you can walk right around the tip of the island for all day tidal pools in which to explore and splash. PERFECT FOR THOSE WITH SMALL CHILDREN who need an afternoon to sit by the water and not worry!

Snatch up some fresh seafood at one of the local markets or restaurants!

Our Home...: The best way to make the most of your beach getaway! Don't get cramped in a hotel or tiny condo! Three large bedrooms plus a bonus game room downstairs will give you all plenty of space. A fully stocked kitchen let's you eat at your leisure and make the most of your time at the beach. Beach access is down the street (a few minutes walk) and since we are at the end of the island you can spread out and relax! The crowds from the condos or large public access sites will be further south.

If you've never been to North Topsail you will fall in love. We hope you enjoy your visit!

About Eileen or Jack O'Toole

Jack grew up on the coast of Maine, and we both love the water. We were stationed at Camp Lejeune for our first duty station and lived on North Topsail for two of our first five years here. This area of the coast is just fabulous; the warm water and soft sands make the beaches that much more enjoyable.

Eileen or Jack O'Toole purchased this house in 2008

Why Eileen or Jack O'Toole chose North Topsail Beach

We've looked for years at different properties but this was just the right one. The views are truly gorgeous. This home has all the views- ocean, end of the island, a pond and the sound! It's spacious so families can spread out. I love cooking so I need a large enough kitchen which this home has. We also appreciate having a yard which many of the homes don't have. We can make a fire in the fire pit, roast apples and look over at the ocean waves. The beaches are not crowded since we are at the very end of the island. Public beach access has no parking here, hence daily visitors frequent other parts of the beach. Plenty of room to run and play!

Pleasant family house!

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean property with good layout for a family - great to have the downstairs play area for kids to work off energy on a couple of the cold wintery days we had! It's an older property, which is really the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars -- but neat and well-kept, and in a good location at the end of the island. Manager was quick and responsive on a minor issue. Would definitely recommend to others!

In close proximity to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Wilmington, NC you can go antiquing, watch the dolphins, visit a museum or simply grab an Italian ice while dipping your feet in the warm coastal waters.
