About the property

16 Bedrooms, 18 Bathrooms - Sleeps up to 60 ('Southern Grace')

Be among the first to experience this lavish, beachfront house, loaded with high quality amenities and more than enough living space for your whole family.

Welcome to Southern Grace. Opening its doors in May, 2015; Southern Grace is an extravagant, newly constructed manor which simply takes your breath away. One of the largest beachfront rentals in the country, this house has a unique design through and through, evident when you first approach. However, once you really take a look around, the magnificence of it becomes clear. Outside, you will enjoy the Tiki Bar, in-ground pool, dance floor, and ample covering from the weather’s elements-perfect for shade in the summer time or providing the covering for your wedding. Don’t worry about privacy; Southern Grace is built on over an acre of land, making private parties or family fun that much more intimate.

The house is nothing short of a dream away from home. With plenty of parking outside (40+ cars) and able to sleep up to 60 guests a night, you’re sure to feel accommodated for any family or social outing. The house features two magnificently oversized suites overlooking the ocean, along with 5 additional suites with king sized beds and lavish décor. Seven fully furnished bedrooms housing double queen beds compliment Southern Grace’s living experience. Two additional rooms contain bunk beds, making it an absolutely perfect haven for your kids to have fun, enjoy their stay, and sleep tight. Let them play in the oversized room, outfitted with double queen beds along with the popular double queen built in bunk beds, while the others enjoy their time in a room equip with double queen beds and one twin bunk bed.

With 18 bathrooms, it’s a guarantee that everyone gets their fair turn at a hot shower. Don’t worry about lines or complaints, this house accommodates everyone sufficiently. There’s even four showers outside! Furthermore, there’s a bedroom within the manor which is handicap accessible, including a handicap bathroom as well.

Just when you thought this dream house couldn’t get any more convenient, it boasts a large, residential elevator to help with moving in and out and just to enhance your stay.

The living spaces in this house are nothing short of breathtaking. With two giant living spaces on each floor in addition to a second living room on the second floor, you will find it hard not to sink deeply into the comfort the house provides. Lining the rooms is a wide array of luxurious windows, bringing in the natural light from outside and only adding to the sumptuous ambiance. If you aren’t tempted to spend all your time in the great room, venture to the separate movie/game room, featuring a prodigious HDTV, a game table, and a foosball table for additional entertainment and fun.

While we’re talking about entertainment, let’s talk about the 19 brand new television sets placed throughout the complex. There are massive TVs installed in the common areas, with smaller sets in each of the bedrooms, making it ideal for everyone to have something to watch at any time. CCTV provides a premium cable service, allowing you access to your favorite television shows, while an in-house collection of over 30 DVDs lets you catch a late night hit movie with friends and family. Need internet? Not a problem. Lightning fast 60 Mbps of WI-FI access is indeed available at your fingertips. This makes it all too perfect for the late night work horse or internet surfer.

If you’re in the movie/game room and find yourself getting parched, please enjoy the kitchenette equipped with microwave, sink, and drink refrigerator. This is an absolute fun palace for the kids or kids at heart, or a convenient oasis for club or church meetings. If you’re really starting to feel peckish, take your appetite to the extra, extra-large, luxurious kitchen area, where 3 refrigerators, 3 state-of-the-art ovens, 2 microwaves, and a 10-burner cooktop make you feel like you’re on the set of a Kitchen Network show. After dinner (there is seating for 52 and more if you use the couches), explore the popular beverage serving area. Enjoy cocktails, coffee, or just some juice with your little ones.

While you’re kicking back, take advantage of the large, private heated pool (extra fee to heat). If the sun isn’t for you, or if you’ve just simply had enough, venture over to the covered area on the colossal pool deck and relax in the comfort of some shade while still being part of the fun. Challenge someone to a game of corn hole, shuffle board, basketball, ring toss, etc. Once the nighttime arrives, take advantage of the Tiki Bar and showcase your dance moves on the dance floor. Perfect for fun family nights or club meetings where you just need to get loose and enjoy life. The area under the house has stained concrete for a ballroom feel.

There is something for everyone here, as you can play basketball with friends and family while preparing burgers and hotdogs on one of the two gas grills available to you. The entire complex is specifically designed for large group gatherings, so don’t be afraid to invite some extra friends!

This house is about luxury, convenience, and overall quality of life. The inverted floor plan places the main living area on the second floor, giving you the absolute perfect view of the ocean. Throw in cathedral ceilings and you have yourself a palace you won’t want to leave.

Let’s face it-house work needs to happen sometimes. Don’t worry, because with 2 full-service laundry rooms complete with washers and dryers make it that much easier to get it done so you can get back to enjoying your stay.

Perfect for a family vacation, retreat, reunion, church event or club getaway, this complex urges you to take a load off, relax and enjoy the sand and surf from one of the double level decks on either side of the house. You deserve to be pampered and made to feel like royalty at Southern Grace-so enjoy a vacation on this 8,500 square foot chateau for less than the price for a high-end hotel. Ocean included!

Sunday to Sunday rental during prime season (great so you don't hit the typical Saturday rental turnover traffic). Mid week or Saturday check-in okay in the off season. Special rates for Church groups in the Off-Peak season.

Southern Grace Review

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion (all 31 of us) at Southern Grace. The home is spacious, the kitchen is great for a crowd and the bedrooms are comfortable. We spent the week walking on the beach, swimming in the heated pool and playing games in the dining room. We look forward to returning to Southern Grace!

Wonderful home and a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. The owners were great, even with us arriving as a storm was blowing through. The house has everything ready to go and is the first one I've ever used the kitchen in and not had to yell "Why don't they have X". Our company had a great time!

Spectacular N. Topsail Treat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 25 is always looking for 5 star properties for our annual vacation and Southern Grace did not disappoint! Aside from the plentiful 16 BR / 16 Bath accommodations, the amenities are top notch. Everything was in working order, and we didn't want for anything! Multiple cooking ovens inside, two large BBQ propane grills outside, a lovely pool, two huge decks facing the ocean, plenty of space inside and out to chill, play games or just get away from the gang. The elevator was a huge plus for some older members of the clan and to schlep our overpacked bags to and fro and the walkway to the ocean made it the easiest trip with beach gear in awhile. The kids loved the double bunks in the Coral Room and foosball table - they slept like a charm and entertained each other all week. The quality of furnishings were noteworthy and the quiet, uncrowded N. Topsail Beach contributed to a most relaxing time. Greg, the owner, is hugely responsive and it is clear that he manages this property exceedingly well. We'd book again in a heartbeat. Book it, you'll be glad you did.

Amazing! We had a reunion that will be remembered for many years.

  • 5 of 5

60 Grindrod family members arrived at Southern Grace. Most living on the east coast drove to SG, and 11 family members flew in from Seattle area and Trinidad. 27 children ages 2 through 16, 21 adults and 12 "seniors" ..(grandparents) all enjoying the wonderful house and all it had to offer. This vacation was a dream come true for all of us.

All bedrooms (16) had private baths, a fully stocked kitchen with appliances, 3 sinks, 3 dishwashers, 3 refrigerators 2 ovens.. and an eating area was like a banquet hall. The house was so large no one felt crowded and we could easily slip into a quiet corner and talk, read and just enjoy the constant breeze coming up from the beach. The house is well maintained and serviced with pool maintenance and garbage/recycle removal. The owner was also available to answer any questions I had and very quick to respond.

The beach was amazing.. we all enjoyed the long walks to pier and back on great sand, built many sand castles, boggy boards, rode the surf, and found many shark teeth as we sifted through the sand/shells.

The boardwalk out to the beach with was very well designed with 2 shower heads plus foot rinse was in constant use. having the pool as an option for everyone to cool off is not wanting to do the beach was wonderful.

Every picture we took had happy faces.

In asking the family what they all liked about Southern Grace all said the beach and everything the house had to offer.

We had a great time.

Thank you for sharing your home.
