Best House In Surf City!!

  • 5 of 5

From first contact with Babs, to walking out the front door to head home, it was an AMAZING trip. Babs (homeowner) was extremely helpful in getting us what we needed to have a great vacation. With a big crowd (19 adults) it is hard to find a reasonably priced location for our annual trip. This fit the bill on paper, but we were blown away by how beautiful it was when we got there. Views of the water from the 2nd floor and up, multiple "hang out" locations, comfy beds, large updated kitchens and huge dining area that can fit everyone.... it has it all! In addition, with so many showers happening coming off the beach or pool, there were 3 hot water tanks (one for each floor) and a heated outdoor shower so no one went without a hot shower. We are ready to make this OUR house until it fails to exist or stops being rented. We ALL LOVE Simply Grand <3 Thank you!!!!

You Won't Want To Leave!

  • 5 of 5

This is a dream ocean-front home – and it feels like a home, not a rental. The owner has decorated it so well, color-coordinating rooms and keeping such a light family friendly atmosphere you will pick up creative decorating ideas to take home, as well as fantastic memories of your stay. There is so much room but it just somehow all comes together. Plenty of space to spread out in all the rooms but also enough large entertaining areas, both inside and out, that you will never find all the wonderful places to sit and enjoy this gem. The balconies overlook the clean pool (with plenty of pool toys for the kids) as well as the ocean right outside your many windows. The extra deck just before the beach is a great place to watch everyone play in the sand without having to get full of it yourself – unless you want to, and who wouldn’t? The kayak provided hours of fun in the surf for young and old alike, the boogie boards got a lot of use, and at the end of the day our large extended family relaxed inside with so many choices of entertainment options – or just sit quietly and listen to the waves. Yes, this place is magical and we are so pleased we were able to enjoy it! We plan to visit again – and again! You will, too.

Great Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful, caring people who are willing to go the extra mile for anyone. Their home(and it is a home not just a beach house)was a wonderful place to spend a week. Great oceanfront location with all the comforts of home and amenities you want/expect at the beach! It was clean, light and airy and decorated with a soothing beach theme throughout with personal touches that made it seem like home. We enjoyed being able to walk to a grocery store, other stores and restaurants and always felt safe doing so even at night. Our view from the home was great and the beach was easily accessible by oceanfront stairs. If it was windy, you could use the pool area and still hear the ocean. The swing on the middle deck was a great reading hideout. There were various living areas so if you are traveling with a large group you would never feel crowded yet the kitchen/dining area are large enough to fit a crowd comfortably as well during mealtimes. This was our first visit to the Surf City/Topsail area and the central location for us to explore both the north and south part of the island as well as Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach was great! Thank you again for sharing your well kept, beautiful beach home with us!

Family Vacation :)

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home..... every bit as nice as described. And the Wagner family is so nice. Our group ranged from a 74 yo grand-paw to a 6 week old baby.... 6 kids....1 Teen,...1 College age + moms/dads, aunts, uncles... The home was spacious. Comfortable beds... The elevator was wonderful. Bunk-beds perfect for the little ones. The pool... just awesome (the kids loved night swimming). And the beach just steps away.

Our 5th year at this property

  • 5 of 5

Since we discovered this property, we can't imagine staying anywhere else. Each year we discover improvements. This year was the deck stairs to the beach and many new beach chairs. We each have our favorite spot. Mine is the middle deck, shade, a breeze, comfortable beach lounge in the morning. In the evening we enjoyed the beach walks and the upper deck. The pool is wonderful, clean and sparkling. Toys for all ages. The hammock always has someone in it. The kitchen has everything you can want to cook. All appliances are up to date. We appreciate the seating, room for everyone. We all loved being able to walk to everything we wanted. (After 12-14 hour trips). The property was clean and ready to receive us. Thank you!
