About Kelly Starkey

We bought God's Favor in 2006 as a second home. Our children are busy and the house is lonely.

Kelly Starkey purchased this house in 2006

Why Kelly Starkey chose Topsail Island

Our home was built in 2006. We bought it as a second home and furnished it beautifully. We are sad to see it sitting unused and would love to see other families enjoy the home as much as we do.

Parking for 5 cars. TVs and DVD players in each room.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the location of God's Favor. We have incredible views of the sunsets over the intracoastal waterway. We have beautiful views of the sunrise over the ocean. It is on a street that look like it belongs in Key West. The neighbors are the best thing about the community. They will welcome you with open arms.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home and property. Perfect location - private boat slip made putting our boat in so easy - private beach access just across the road - quiet neighborhood - close to Surf City, groceries, shopping, activities and restaurants. Something for everyone. Kelly is quick to respond and easy to work with. You need to bring linens or use local service. We stayed in for dinner almost every night, so the only negative to us was no grill to use. Everything else was perfect! We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Beach Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed together for a week every summer at Topsail Beach for the last seven years. This was our first stay at God's Favor and we all agree that this was the best property thus far. Great layout, beautifully furnished and perfect number of bedrooms and bathrooms for our family. The elevator was a big plus in getting luggage, belongings and groceries upstairs. So nice not to have to lug heavy items up stairs as in previous years. We brought a small boat and being able to use the community boat launch and assigned dock space was perfect. We all hope to be able to stay here again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My 4 sisters and brother and our spouses spent a great weekend at God's Favor . The house was met out every need and the view from the house to the intercostal waterway was magnificent. It was only a short walk to the beach. The weather was great. I would definately recommend God's Favor .

Wonderful clean rental with fantastic sunset views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at this home and absolutely LOVED every minute of it! The home is so nice and clean. The pictures certainly don't do it justice! The home is definitely not decorated like a traditional rental and is warm and inviting and so bright and cheerful it is hard not to love. The sunset views from the decks…wow. Fantastic!! And the setup of the home is nice in that there are areas that you can easily escape on your own, which isn’t always easy to accomplish when vacationing with a group of 10. This is the first time in years my family and I have stayed at a rental that wasn’t on the beach and we were worried we would miss it. However it was such a short walk to the private beach access that we honestly didn’t, especially considering the wonderful intercostal waterway views. The beds were all very comfortable and the bedrooms were a nice size and all had deck access which was a nice bonus. The elevator is by far the nicest private residence elevator we’ve ever utilized, which was helpful as we had people traveling in our party who are unable to climb stairs. The boat access is another nice bonus as it is literally right outside your door. And the icing on the cake is the owner, Kelly, was fantastic to work with and answered all of my 1 million questions without ever once acting annoyed. 

This was also our first trip staying in Surf City, as we are normally “Holden Beach” folks and I have to say we loved it! There is just the right combo of things to do without it being overly commercial. And the beach…you just can’t beat the NC beaches no matter how hard you try! If you do visit this area definitely stop by Sears Landing http://searslanding.com/ . The food was AMAZING and they had wonderful cocktails with a beautiful view. I also really enjoyed the local IGA grocery store on the island http://surfcityiga.com/ which shockingly had a wide variety of items and was reasonably priced. And the Daily Grind Coffee shop….. http://topsail-island-nc.net/the-daily-grind.html WOW! Delicious coffee and the donuts….. Don’t even get me started.

In summary, this is a WONDERFUL rental in a delightful city that I would definitely recommend to others. I’m already dreaming of our next trip back! Thanks so much for your hospitality Kelly and we hope to visit your beautiful home again someday!!!

Car: recommended

Topsail Beach is the home of the world famous turtle hospital. We highly recommend taking a tour of the facility and see the amazing things that they do to save endangered sea turtles.

We are also 30 minutes from Wilmington which has a downtown full of quaint shops, restaurants and home of the USS North Carolina, a WWII battleship. Tours are given daily of the ship. Visit www.battleshipnc.com for more information. Highly recommended.

Lunch, dinner and sightseeing cruises along the Cape Fear River are also available. Not far from Wilmington is Fort Fisher, home of the NC Aquarium. If shopping and going to a movie is your pleasure, visit Mayfair. Great restaurants there as well.
