Mike & Judy Hendy are residents of the area and operate a business on Topsail Island.
Mike Hendy purchased this house in 1991
We purchased this property almost 25 years ago. It is one of the original properties on the island (pre-Hurricane Hazel) but of course has been updated over the years. We loved the location of the property and of course Topsail Island in particular. Many things have changed since then, but the underlying charm and 1950's feel still exists.
Location is great and within a 5 minute walk to the center of town. Fishing pier is very close as well as the bank, shops, restaurants and the IGA grocery.
Watch the famous Surf City firework display from the front porch if you are visiting during the 4th of July. Or you can easily walk to the Soundside Park and enjoy the entertainment offered during the summertime.
Mike met us on the day we arrived.....showed us the house and told us to call him for any help we might need. My daughter and I spent a month ......enjoyed every minute, our 3 dogs loved the big enclosed deck overlooking the beach. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook a dinner..........well stocked. We are planning for another vacation at Trivial Pursuit..
We absolutely loved this beach house!! The location was ideal. We literally spent most of our time on the deck - truly beach-front with its unobstructed view! You don't have to be in the sand to feel like you are ON the beach. Our dog loved the completely gated deck too! We were also close enough to the center street to be able to walk to restaurants and pier rather than drive everywhere. The house itself is well appointed and comfortable. We only used the upstairs area since we had a small family group. The owner Mike was very nice and helpful, and available to answer questions throughout our visit without being intrusive. We will definitely be back to Trivial Pursuit! Thank again Mike!
Mike met is at check in. Showed us around and let us know about the best places to eat. This is one of the original 1940's beach cottages. Don't expect everything to big, shiny and new. This was one of the most comfortable places I've stayed at. The deck is awesome. I will say again, the deck is awesome! Comfortable, clean, well stocked and free wifi. We liked it so much that before we left we booked it again for next year! Great place for the dogs. All of the deck is gated. Dog friendly beach. Great laid back vacation.
The island is really nice and fun to explore. The house had a beautiful view and a great deck.
the house was very cozy and the separate apartment downstairs worked great for our guests
We will be back
A very nice, simple beach cottage. We traveled with our 2 children (1 & 4) and 2 dogs and found our stay to be very enjoyable. The incredibly close proximity to the beach made it a breeze to spend as much or as little time on the sand as we liked without having to haul tons of stuff back/forth. The back deck offered beautiful sunsets and the gated entrances were perfect to keep the dogs contained while out with us. It was just a short beach walk to the pier, which the kids really enjoyed.
The additional accommodations on the lower level offered a great space for friends to come visit us for part of the week.
The homeowner, Mike, met us on our arrival to show us around the house. He was very pleasant and was available during the week for any questions or concerns we might have.
We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this home for anyone traveling with small children or dogs.
