About Leonard

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

Why Leonard chose Topsail Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Ten stars !!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fun at Dolphin Watch

  • 5 of 5

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!

Even more updates!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful new appliances!

  • 5 of 5

The updates to the house are great! The new appliances in the kitchen and a new washer and dryer are wonderful. We also enjoyed the new addition to the deck. Everyone had a chance to sit out there and watch the waves. We appreciate the way that the owners continually update the house.

4 sisters + Mom getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our oldest sister moved to Sneads Ferry over the summer to teach at a local school. On November 13, she turned the big 50. Our mother, along with my sister and I from Ohio, our baby sister from Minnesota decided to surprise my sister. (It had been over 15 yrs since all of us had been all together.) We rented this "AMAZING" beach house, it is clean and well maintained. With the help of my brother-in-law, we surprised my sister by walking up the beach singing Happy Birthday! Needless to say, my sister was shocked to see all of us and there wasn't a dry eye!! (Because we were all flying to Topsail, NC, the owner and housekeeper helped supply us with towels, wash clothes, etc.) We all had the most amazing time!! We can't wait to do this again! Thank you Leonard and Liz!! We loved the stain glass windows and the wind soc helped identify the house when we were walking on the beach.
