Why Christiana Halvorson 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!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great beach without all the commercial traffic, this is the place for you.

the home has plenty of space for your group, ours was a group of 13. The beach is just a few steps off the patio. There is plenty of parking space for several cars. The home is well equipped and if any problems do arise they are quickly remedied with a phone call.

loved the location-right on the beach!!!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for our family of 17. The bedrooms were quite, even with young children awake and playing downstairs. The main living area is very roomy for dinning and playing table games, etc. The house is right on the beach!! Food Lion grocery store is 5 minutes away. Surf City is 10 minutes away!! We enjoyed our stay at this house!!!!

Beautiful beach. Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the last part of June with a large family of 14 adults and 4 kids. We loved it here. We used the kitchen every day in one way or another and felt right at home. Lots of kitchen gadets supplied. We did bring a few specialty items like a juicer for making drinks, but basic stuff was all there.

We all fit nicely and felt comfortable. We could hear the waves crashing all the time! Beds weren't the most comfortable, but not bad. There was some normal wear on the house from the salt and sand, but being right on the beach made up for it. We saw dolphins swimming and found shark teeth on the beach, which was so fun! We honestly stayed on the beach a lot. Surf City does have a few things to do, but not the biggest town. But we wanted something more private with this beach, and we definitely found that here. We did do the turtle hospital tour and loved it. We were also able to rent a boat and see some more of the landscape. We also had dolphins swimming right along side our boat! Bring your own beach toys and chairs or buy there at a surf shop. Boogie boarding was insanely fun as the waves were great and it was pretty shallow most times out where you could get great waves.

Honestly the only thing we would have maybe changed was just a tiny bit cleaner when we arrived, but not bad at all. The grill was really really gross and we couldn't find grill cleaning tools. So we did have to go take care of that before we could use it. That was the biggest problem I remember. Oh and the shower didn't work outside (but there is a hose to spray off). So it was really difficult to get all the sand washed off every time we all went inside. But I'm sure that is why it was kind of hard for the cleaning lady to get it spotlessly clean for each new family. There was a family staying in the other side when we were there, they were very nice, and we definitely couldn't hear them at all.

Overall it was an amazing time, and all my family had a blast. Just trying to list these things to prepare people who visit. We can't wait to come back here. We were all so sad to leave. Just the most beautiful beach, and wonderful house with helpful owners. So thankful for all the wonderful memories we made with our family!

Wonderful, attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

The view is spectacular from every floor. Perfect for a large family gathering. We spent Thanksgiving here this week, and the kitchen was the perfect size for cooking a large meal. Between the bar and the dining room table, you can seat 15! We left the back door open during our Thanksgiving dinner, and had the crashing waves in the background. So memorable!

The living room has the most comfy couch ever, and the home decor is perfectly updated. At any time that we had a need, we reached out to the owners via the VRBO app messenger, and they responded quickly. They truly desired for our experience to be great. Looking forward to another chance to enjoy this rental.

FANTASTIC Ocean Views and Super Comfy House

  • 5 of 5

This rental is literally right on the beach. The house is situated right above the dunes so you can see the ocean from every level and the sound of the ocean in the evening was fantastic. You could see the ocean at all times. It was fantastic. We enjoyed the sound of the ocean from the bedrooms as you fall asleep and we watched the sunrise over the ocean from bed. It was that fantastic.

The rental is very cozy and had everything that we needed - particularly in the kitchen. Each time we thought "I wonder if they have...." and sure enough we found it. We stayed in October and the weather was still warm during the day and a little chilly in the evenings. It was all around perfect for us. We were also approaching a full moon so you could see everything on the beach late at night for a few days. Absolutely stunning!

Our trip was delayed two days because Hurricane Matthew stopped by on the day of check in so we had to hang back until the area was passable. The owners made every effort to keep us informed regarding the conditions and we followed updates on social media from North Topsail who did an exceptional job of providing predictions, warnings, etc. Even though we had less time than we had hoped, the trip was still well worth it and we had a much needed relaxing time.

The back deck has nice chairs to sit and be immersed in the beach. The deck would benefit from a table to enjoy beach-front dinners on the deck but still nothing that takes away from the property in any way.

Thank you!! Hope to rent sometime again in the future!

SPECTACULAR! Right on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Dolphin Daze and WOW! The home was very comfortable, cozy, and so well decorated! We truly felt at home there. Best of all, the location was unmatched to anywhere else we've ever stayed. It was also our first time in Topsail and it was truly a memorable experience. During our stay, we enjoyed everything from fishing to crab hunting at night. We also took a drive to Wilmington and checked out the amazing Battleship and the Cape Fear Serpentarium. We are thankful that we came upon this beautiful home and hope to return again next year!
