Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Waterloo,my husband and I and our 3 adult kids to hang onto our son for a couple of days before he was deployed for his first time. It was perfect. The new dock we enjoyed so much. The house was so comfortable, the views amazing and i would recommend this place to anyone who wants a home with the feeling of a lot of love! The beach was so close! Thank you for having us and we hope to come back to get our son when he returns! Barbara Evans

Cozy & charming, right on the sound, an easy block walk from the beach, with beautiful sunsets in the evening, close to both Surf City and Topsail proper. Enjoyed it!

Waterloo - Simplicity at its Finest

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at Waterloo on Topsail Island for weekend visit. Joe and Judy were super easy to work with, responded very quickly to any questions we had and made booking the rental a great experience. Everything was as described about the property and the location is simply fabulous, you can't get any closer to the water!

Overall we enjoyed our brief stay here and would definitely book again!

Thanks Joe!!

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a 4 day weekend at this lovely home situated directly on the water. 4 adults, 2 young boys, and 2 small dogs. The boys loved the bunk room and the two couples each had their own bedroom. The home itself is dated, but we spent little time inside as the whole attraction of this property is the outside! As another user mentioned, the swing underneath the house was nice, as was the upper deck for watching the dolphins. We spent lots of time fishing off of the dock. Joe (the owner) was extremely accommodating and assisted us with docking our pontoon boat at his dock. The beach is a short walk across the street. We went to the beach in the mornings and were practically the only ones there until noon when a few surfers showed up. It was like having our own private beach! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware, but we only ate lunch and breakfast there so didn't really take advantage of that. Lots of great restaurants within 10-20 minutes of the place. Would highly recommend the property and would return again.

Exactly what I needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first house I've stayed at that was soundfront, and it was fantastic. The views were amazing from either inside the house or from the dock. We stayed 3 nights and we're blessed with 3 great days of awesome sunsets. I loved how quiet it was all day. The beach access was really close and easy to get to. It was also really close to both Topsail Beach and Surf City. Meet Joe (owner) and helped us with some location questions. Overall it was a mix of the perfect house and good weather. Plus, the fishing was fun from the dock.

A great beach experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Topsail Island and this house just fell in my lap while researching VRBO. I am so glad that it did. It was an amazing place to stay. The house is right on the sound and it is gorgeous and serene back there. We rented kayaks from 50 South and explored the sound several times. My husband went fishing for redfish and had a successful trip. My boys (16 and 11) enjoyed kayaking and going to the beach. The beach is less than a 3 minute easy walk from the house. I am glad we stayed sound-side instead of on the ocean. Joe (the owner) was extremely nice and accommodating. We cannot wait to return. This was a real treasure find.

Topsail Island is a family beach that still has the charm not seen at many larger beach areas. Local shops and attractions are unique, not commercialized, and our beaches are not over crowded. One of the few gems left on the east coast.
