We traveled to Topsail Island from Ohio for many years. We love the beach and the private atmosphere of the island. We bought a lot and had our house built over the winter of 95-96. Our first rental was in 1996. We also became familiar with hurricanes- Bertha and Fran.
Leonard purchased this house in 1996
When I was a little girl, our family always came to Topsail for a few days and my dad went fishing. I never got enough of the beach. To this day, I have never left Double Dunes (or Topsail) and felt ready to come home to Ohio. In our retirement, we plan to spend a lot more time there.
We love to sit on the upper deck in the evening when the shade comes over and have a glass of wine. It is the perfect end of a long day at the beach. We love to cook so we always look forward to some tasty shrimp and oyster dinners. There are also many restaurants that we like so much that we look forward to them year after year.
The home is beautifully appointed and easily accommodated our party of 10. The only thing we missed while there was the use of a grill, but we made do without.
Positives from our stay: We received an unexpected visit from pest control to do regular maintenance spraying, which left me with the impression that the home is well maintained. We saw dolphins every morning, and enjoyed watching the military excursions overhead - different planes and helicopters flew by a couple of times, and that was exciting!
Only negative:We did experience a reaction to mold/mildew, and found and cleaned mold growth under the upstairs sink - one of our family members is very allergic, but it is not surprising to experience at the beach where it is always humid!
I highly recommend this house!
My husband, 21 y/o grandson and I enjoyed the stay and the area. The house was perfect.. I would highly recommend.
We stayed at Double Dunes for 3 weeks in 2015 and can tell you that this house
met all of our needs and wants !! The pictures do not do it justice.
We are both retired with adult children and grand children who came for various
lengths of time and this house was perfect ... plenty big to accomodate us all.
The owner was easy to deal with ... no problems at all.
This would be the first house I would consider renting when we come back to NC.

This house is adorable. Pictures do not do it justice! There were 10 adults 2 infants and a toddler. PLENTY of room for all. Lets face it, most of your time is outside on the beautiful decks/porches. We had meals IN HOUSE all nights but two. Took turns cooking, etc. Plenty of room. GREAT kitchen w/ all the amenities you would need for a meal. ALL APPLIANCES are updated.Very clean, Very nice. Classy and Chic! If I had to complain about one thing? I really don't know what would be. Looking forward to coming back!
Wonderful place to stay, great "home" on the beach. 6 adults just relaxing watching the dolphins, sunrises and sunsets. The house was wonderfully decorated and updated. Very comfortable whether you were sitting out on one of the decks, porches, or watching TV in the family room. The owner was wonderful to work with, I highly recommend staying at Dolphin Watch!
So many new updates! The new paint in the living room is beautiful and matches the furnishings perfectly. People will also appreciate the new furniture (and mattresses) in the bunk room. Finally he new deck is awesome! We love the extra room on the upper deck and lower decks. There's even a bit more room in the shade for those folks who need/want to stay out of the sun. We were impressed!
Located on the north end of Beautiful Topsail Island- approx 6.1 miles north of the Surf City traffic light. It is a great place to relax and enjoy your beach or fishing vacation.
