About Candace Weaver

My husband and I are from North Carolina and purchased this house several years ago. We love the 'peaceful, relaxing lifestyle' of Topsail Island.

Candace Weaver purchased this house in 2007

Why Candace Weaver chose Topsail Island

Topsail Island is a great hidden gem on the North Carolina Coast. Vacations on Topsail mean lazy beach days with a good book, good friends and family, and good food. This is one of the last beach towns that isn't over commercialized and really entertains you with it's gorgeous landscape. If you're looking for a place to sleep late, walk to the beach for a nap, then sit on the porch while the hot pink sun sets for the day, then Topsail Island is your place to vacation.

What makes this house unique

At the Pirate's Doc you can sit on the sun deck and watch the ocean's personality change throughout the day. We are in a quiet neighborhood that removes you from the daily traffic offering a peaceful retreat. Our neighborhood is very tranquil where you can ride your bike, go for a walk and be back to watch the sun set over the Intercoastal Waterway in the evening. Our home is a reverse floor plan so you can enjoy the views of the ocean and the waterway from inside. Call or email now to schedule your vacation!

Great location and very quite area. Beautiful neighborhood! Close to beach...yet a good walk. We replaced outside flood lights that did not work. There was no outdoor lighting that worked. Inside of property fit our needs. We wish there had been outdoor chairs on the deck. The two that are there are unstable. (Bring your own.) Within driving distance of many activities. Great vacation spot. We love Topsail Island ans Surf City. We have vacationed here for many years. Just brought daughter and 4 grandchildren this time. Best beaches!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us. Thank you for changing out the flood lights, we did not realize the lights had burned out until this review. We will be sure to add this check item to our weekly property review. Same with the deck chairs; the season was a little rougher on these than we realized and will be sure to have these repaired.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE! So clean and relaxing. Listen to the ocean from the top deck...

We have two families with 4 children meet up and we've made it a point to book this every year with Candice. She is very helpful and so sweet! The house is huge, plenty of space for both families and just a short walk to the beach (it's right across the street). There are plenty of places to go out to eat and a seafood market that is close by for really fresh fish. Full kitchen made the stay super inexpensive and really fun. This is by far the best value stay in Surf City!!!

Nice getaway

  • 4 of 5

I rented this property for my family for the week and we had a very nice time. Topsail is a wonderful beach, very family friendly and not at all crowded. This property was very comfortable and clean. A good size for a family of 5, plenty of space and comfortable beds.

My only word of warning is that you do have to cross the main road to get to the beach access. With small children this was stressful as the road was quite busy the week we were there.

Otherwise we had a great time!

Great place to stay. Close to the water without the noise of beachgoers. Lots to do around the island and of course great places to eat! Or you can have a seafood dinner of your own at the house compliments of the seafood market. I would certainly recommend this property to others!

fantastic family fun

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at pirates doc! It was very clean, great views, very cozy, very centrally located on the island and most importantly easy access to the beach! The owners were very nice and friendly to work with. I will definitely tell my family and friends about this place to stay and plan to stay again in the future!

Family Vacation 2011

  • 3 of 5

This cottage was in a nice location with a nice view of the ocean. There was plenty of room for 6 - 8 people. Expected the kitchen to be better stocked. The main TV was not adjustable and the picture quality was quite poor. There was a game system but no game controller. Difficulty in opening main door and deck doors. With more care this cottage would be a much more enjoyable place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Our kitchen is stocked with everything that you could possible use during a weeks vacation and meets any realty company's standards in the area. I'm not sure about the picture quality that is being referred. We offer a standard cable package with a brand new 42" TV. Unfortunately the game controller was taken by another renter, we've since removed that amenity. The great thing about this cottage is that we are situated on the island within close proximity to the ocean - with this comes salt air that reeks havoc on anything metal, including door locks. We continue to repair them, but that is the charm of staying on the island. As you know, VRBO is rentals through individual owners instead of larger rental companies. Foe that reason you get to enjoy a lower cost in a nightly vacation rental. My husband and I work very hard to maintain our cottage, we hope you choose to return again.

Topsail Island is one of the last uncommercialized beach towns. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation where you sleep late, sit on the beach, fish on the pier, eat, and enjoy the company of your family - Topsail Island is the place to be! The island has lots for you to enjoy; explore the sound at Serenity Point, visit the Missile Museum or Sea Turtle Hospital, fish from the Jolly Roger or Surf City piers, putt-putt and ice cream at the local spots, go kayaking in the sound, rent a beach cruisers, surf fish with the tide, pick up dinner at the seafood market, souvenir shop in the local stores, rent jet skies, deep sea fishing, boat rides, or enjoy a weekend outdoor movie in the park, or picnic at the many playgrounds and parks scattered around. The list is long!

Whatever you decide to choose, you will have a great time on Topsail Island.
