About David E.

This house has been in our family for 40+ years. We have spent countless hours updating it and making it feel like a second home. Hopefully you'll appreciate the house and family environment that Topsail Beach has to offer after staying there. Enjoy.

David E. purchased this house in 1970

2nd stay was better than the 1st!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Rideout's Hideout and we can't imagine vacationing any other way. Our family of five fits great here with room to spare. The outdoor showers are perfect after lounging at the beach and the big dining table inside is great for family game night (there are even some games in the utility closet!). The beds are super comfortable and there's nothing better than sitting on the deck listening to the sounds of the waves in the evening. We had the pleasure of watching a nest of baby sea turtles crawl to the sea this time around so our kids were super excited. The beach is so clean and never crowded--and OH, SO CLOSE! Our son has allergies and David is always accommodating to ensure that the house is clean (and sheets ordered from Me & Mom have made sure we have new sheets, too!). When we decide to dine out (which isn't often because the house has EVERYTHING we need to make great meals!), we're sure to hit up Daddy Mac's for great food and stunning views.

Our son asks daily about our third trip to Rideout's Hideout. We can't wait to tell him when we're headed back--because we certainly will be going back again!

Looking for relax time...found it here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, our mini schnauzer and I wanted a place to relax before our busy season started with work. Since my cleaning company cleans many VRBO's we decided to go VRBO! First Time renters. It was fabulous! David was great to work with, answering all our questions. We was perfect! So clean, fully equipped, beautifully decorated and just perfect for our vacation! Pet friendly (our first time taking our pet on vacation). I would highly recommend this house and we will be returning hopefully in October for a week!!! Happy in Hickory, NC

We really enjoyed our stay at this vacation rental. It was clean, spacious and had all the essentials. The owners were a pleasure to work with when we needed their assistance. The neighborhood was peaceful and we felt safe there. We hope to return again in the future.

great place

  • 5 of 5

the cottage is very close to the beach. we can see the water and her the waves. The Direct TV and Internet was a plus! We also brought our 2 yorkies and love the deck! the kitchen as fully equipped, with washer and dryer. the only thing that needs replacing are the pillows. The house is pretty clean and tidy. also, David is very flexible and accommodating. we would come back again and will recommend his cottage to our friends! Thanks David!!! our furbabies enjoyed the beach...

We booked this at pretty much the last minute, and the owner was so patient with me during that process and with all my questions. Our last VRBO experience at another beach wasn't great, so I was worried about this one, but I shouldn't have been. It was awesome!! We arrived late, had no trouble finding the key, and got in with no trouble (always a plus late at night). We put our things down and headed to the moonlit beach, a very short walking distance. Our 4-year-old Lab had never seen the beach so we were anxious to see her reaction (which was priceless). So it wasn't until daylight the next morning that I got a good look at the house. The décor is adorable, beach but not tacky. The furniture was comfortable, as was the bed (we took our own pillows so can't speak to those). Because this was our first time using a pet-friendly rental, I expected odor/hair but there was none. The place was very very clean, which is important to me. We had also taken coffee filters, paper towels and toilet paper, but there were some of each there, and the kitchen was well stocked (coffee maker included), except I never found a wine bottle opener. We had to improvise. I loved loved loved the proximity to ocean and sound and loved sitting on the porch and hearing the waves (and seeing the ocean. You can see it from the front and can see the sound from the back.) The outside hose was great for rinsing all our feet off, people and dog, and we loved having the ability to shut the dog onto the upstairs porch and feel comfortable while we left for short periods of time. It's a 5-hour drive from our house to this one, but the next time we get back to Topsail, we hope to rent this house again!

A Must!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my families 3rd stay at Rideouts Hideout. We absolutely love it there. The cottage is comfortable and cozy. Each time we visit there have been upgrades and improvements made. Only a short walk to the beach and a fun bike ride with the kids for miniature golf and ice cream. We love the two outdoor showers after a day of sand and sun. I would recommend this property to all!
