Topsail Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-16)

This family owned beach house provides spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean from three separate decks. Listen to the sound of the waves as you rest in your oceanfront room. Wake up to a gorgeous sunrise. Spend the day watching dolphins play in the surf.

The house is extremely spacious with an upscale feel. Three direct ocean front bedrooms. Incredible golfing just a few miles away. This home is our family getaway, and we take great pride in maintaining it to our high standards. For large family gatherings please inquire about renting the attached property. It worked great for us over the Thanksgiving holiday, and we were able to accommodate both sides of our family.

Please call or email Megan with any questions.

Why The Owner chose Topsail Island

We love Topsail Beach. We purchased this house because Topsail provides a quiet and family oriented get away. The beaches are gorgeous, and not overly crowded. Also, incredible golfing just a few miles away!!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Right on the beach, just what we wanted! The beach was peaceful and not crowded. We saw dolphins almost everyday. The kids chased and caught crabs and the shells are everywhere! The water was always warm :) Excellent views from three rooms of the house, plenty of room for everyone. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back!

Fabulous beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here for vacation! This was our first time to Top Sail and it was fabulous! The beach was beautiful and very private! The house exceeded our expectations and was a perfect size for our family! The decks were perfect to sit outside and enjoy the ocean breeze! We loved the way the rooms were set up! Can't wait to vacation again!!!

First Topsail Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house and price for our family and extended family of 14. The house was spotless, spacious, with a well stocked kitchen. The amenities were great. Also the three oceanfront decks were great to relax in the evening as the sun set. Thanks to the owners for making our first Topsail Experience a great one. We will be back for sure!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I'm here now, with my children and grandchildren. I totally agree with all the other reviews. This property is beautiful, very well maintained and the kitchen has everything (at least for our cooking needs) that we have needed. We have cooked all our meals. Bring your comfy beach/porch chairs. There are chairs, but not the kind you can recline and relax in. Bring your beach toys for the kids. Lots of steps to haul your stuff in from the parking area. Plenty of parking, we had 4 cars and still room for more without getting in parking space for other half of duplex. If I can think of anything else, maybe I can post later. Got to go play some more on the beach now.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

While many home owners shy away once anyone mentions a college group, I wanted to thank the owner for allowing our group to stay in our home. The house is beautiful, well maintained, and very spacious. Any problems I noticed on arrival I took note of (none of which were large or needed immediate attention). We were slightly worried about the large security deposit we made, but we were payed back in full! I would recommend this house for any larger group looking for a nice get away to the beach. We even saw dolphins in the ocean the day we arrived! The owner also asked for us to keep our dog on the first floor, which was completely doable. Thanks to the owner for being so kind and responsive!

Awesome family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 8 adults and 4 kids (ages 10-16) and had an amazing time! The house had plenty of room for all of us and is exactly as pictured. The deck area is wonderful for going outside and enjoying your morning coffee while looking out at the ocean. LOVED being able to just walk out the door and be right on the beach. For those with kids, this beach is GREAT for finding shark teeth! We had a blast searching the shoreline for them, and came back with a ton as little "souvenirs"! We cooked all but one of our meals at the house (the last night we ordered pizza from Max's in Surf City) - outdoor grill was very convenient and we bought a ton of amazing fresh seafood from a little market we found in Surf City. The rental was also conveniently located just 5 minutes or so from the Food Lion in Sneads Ferry, which made it very easy to just run out for groceries. There's also a great little bagel place near the Food Lion called Minervini's - would recommend giving them a try when looking for something easy for breakfast! During our stay there was another large group renting the other side of the duplex, but we barely noticed them (no extra noise or anything like that) so it really felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Checking in and out was smooth and the owners were very helpful when making the rental arrangements. We will definitely keep this place in mind for future family get togethers! I would highly recommend the home to others who are looking to vacation on Topsail Island.
