Overview

Topsail Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths

Welcome to paradise on topsail island in this beautiful piano key oceanfront home in ocean ridge, just .6 miles south of the high rise bridge. Whether you are hosting a family reunion, vacationing with friends or planning a romantic getaway, this professionally decorated home has everything you need for a perfect beach vacation. There are five bedrooms, four and a half baths and 3 separate living areas with enough room to sleep up to 16. (see bed arrangement - if your group is all adults, the home sleeps 12 comfortably with 10 in bedrooms and 2 on sleeper sofa. If you have kids the bunk room sleep up to 8 kids very tightly and then there is room for 10 adults) The top level of the Nantucket style gem houses the master bedroom with a king size 4 poster bed, sitting area looking over the ocean, jacuzzi tub, 32” flat screen TV. Also on the top floor is an ensuite queen bedroom with windows looking over the ocean and a 32” flat screen TV. The kids will love the bunk room with 2 pyramid style bunk beds and 2 additional trundles and PS II (bring your games). Just outside this room is a large bathroom and dedicated laundry room. Perhaps the best feature of the top floor is the sun drenched den area with 2 inviting sofas (one with queen sleeper), built in speakers and oceanfront deck. This is the perfect place for reading, napping or watching the dolphins frolic in the waves while enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

The main living area has a large living area with a 52” flat screen TV with free netflix movies, board games galore and plenty of seating for your whole party. Directly off the living room is a separate living area with lending library, comfy sofa and hidden full size Murphy bed. A door off this room leads to a sound side deck, the perfect place to watch sunset on the island. There is another ensuite queen bedroom on the main floor also with a door also leading to the sound side deck, 32' flatscreen TV.

The kitchen is clean and bright with all the appliances and cookware one needs to prepare gourmet meals. Barstools around the spacious island ensure the cook will always have company. There is a dedicated ice maker to fill your cooler for the beach. When you get back pull out the blender for some cooling frozen concoctions! The dining room seats 12 with large windows overlooking the ocean. There is seating for 4 more at the breakfast bar. There is also a half bath on this floor.

Step outside onto the oceanfront deck which is half covered for those who don’t want too much sun and open at the front for the sun lovers. Your party will love the 8 person hot tub overlooking the ocean. There is plenty of seating for eating al fresco or just watching the surf. Walk down to the ground level where there is a private beach walkover and just a short stroll away is the community pool. The 2 car garage has a game room area with ping pong. An enclosed outdoor shower has hot and cold running water.

The home also has hardwood floors throughout, wireless internet, central air conditioning, ceiling fans, high chair, pack and play and a charcoal grill. ****PLEASE NOTE WE NEVER ASK A TRAVELER TO WIRE FUNDS OR TO CONTACT US BY EMAIL OUTSIDE OF THE VRBO PLATFORM .

About Tricia Ireland

Fred & Tricia live in the historic district of Wilmington. Tricia owns her own Real Estate Firm and Fred is the owner of Core Physical Therapy in Leland. They have lived all over the country but think the beaches of Southeastern North Carolina are the finest beaches in the us.

Tricia Ireland purchased this house in 2012

Why Tricia Ireland chose Topsail Island

While searching for a vacation home we looked at many properties, this home is large enough to sleep 16 but feels cozy enough for a romantic getaway. When we saw the dolphins playing the surf form the oceanfront deck, we were sold!

What makes this house unique

The home has 3 separate living areas, 2 oceanfront decks and a soundside deck, a hot tub, gameroom, gorgeous hardwood floors and amazing views.

Great Home. Great Location. Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. The view from the deck of the ocean was peaceful. The walk to the beach over the dunes was short and easy. Not a bad thing to say.

If you're looking for a peaceful beach home, away from the chaos of a beach town, this is the spot. Our children played in the ocean every day and relaxed in the hot tub. A 10 minute drive and you are in Surf City where there are plenty of surf shops and restaurants.

We plan on making this an annual spot.

Renter

  • 3 of 5

Sadly I was expecting much more from this rental property. I did not have grand expectations that I had rented a high end property, as the previous reviews made it clear it was not high quality furniture, quality kitchen etc... but that they appreciated that so they didn't feel nervous about breaking nice decor. It goes beyond that. The furniture is VERY worn and stained, the first floor bathroom has a awful smell when you walk in it and the AC can only get the property to the high 70's. When I am on vacation I don't care what the style of the home is, or even if it is ugly decor...but I do expect clean and fresh. The kitchen cabinets are sticky to the touch and small inside the pantry cabinet. Like I said, we were not looking for a 4 or 5 star home, but the fact that you have to rent sheets and towels for that many people (or lug them along) for that price seems crazy. Add in chairs and umbrellas, bikes etc then you are up in the range of a much nicer property and one that is water front and would include these basic amenidies. I also did not realize that this house sits on the main road. We have stayed in numerous rental homes in Florida, Hilton head, Mexico etc. I think clean white bedding and bath towels should be standard in any level property. Finally, the pool is run down and small and a hike to get to. I do appreciate how kind the owners sound in write ups and I hated writing this to be honest...but when a family saves all year for a vacation they should know exactly what they are getting. It is fine...by all means...just not worth the money for what you get in my opnion. I will add in case I felt my standards were to high. My 80 year old Mom, three teenagers and husband all felt the same way. Thank you

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay in our home. It is standard on North Topsail beach to rent linens as our turnover time is so short We replaced both a/c units in 2015 and have had no complaints from other guests - we would have happily sent out a technician had we known you were not comfortable. (When I checked on the house after you left, both upstairs and downstairs were set to and running at 72 degrees). I have someone go in the home before each guest to check the home and was not informed of any bathroom smells prior to your arrival. I have a letter on the refrigerator with phone numbers to call is you find anything unsatisfactory with the home when you check in. It's unfortunate that you didn't let me know you were having issues while during your stay so I could remedy any problems during your stay.

Great vacation. Beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation at Topsail. We had a couple of storms but we're able to go to the beach everyday. This house was perfect for us. We were able to have great family time in the living room and also all ate together in the dining area. I had quiet early morning time on the deck overlooking the ocean. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The porch was super and the hot tub was enjoyed by all. We had a broken dishwasher but that was remedied very quickly by the owner. Thank you Tricia.

Great Location! Great expansive home steps from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a fabulous 5 bedroom unit that seems to go on for ever! There is a room for everyone and everything. Very new and updated, we felt comfortable the moment we walked in. Very clean and well maintained.

We loved North Topsail Beach as it is very quiet, though easy access just down the road to groceries, t-shirt shops and other necessities. we loved "The Trailer Bar" in Surf City just up the road - you won't find anything else like it......

There is a hot tub right on the deck that you look directly at the ocean while luxuriating. There is a three-car garage below and stairs directly into the unit. The kitchen is very large and all of the proper amenities, dishes, utensils, etc. The owners are great and very responsive - providing super recommendations for local eats and things to do.

The master suite is gorgeous and all other rooms are large and fun. Book now before someone else gets there first! We recommend it highly.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row we had a wonderful two month stay in North Topsail Beach. This house played a large part in that. While its 5 bedrooms came in very handy when friends, children and grandchildren arrived it was also not cavernous when it was just Susan and I. The sitting area at the top of the stairs is our favorite spot to sit and read while listening to the sound of the surf on the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped as we do like to cook when going out seems to be too much of a hassle. While the house is not directly on the beach it is only steps away, close enough to be able to go to sleep to the sound of the waves. The beach on Topsail is great, it's amazing to see the changes with each tide. We recommend getting up early to check out a sunrise, they are spectacular.

This is my second review and as I said last year, any house may be fine for a weeks vacation but to spend two months and not have problems is difficult. This house has done it twice for us.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

While we love the beaches of North Carolina, Topsail is a new fave. And this house? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It's gorgeous, very well appointed and has everything you need including a shrimp deveiner — very handy when getting a fresh catch from the shrimpers. The beds are comfy. The views are stunning. And the people in the area make it even more fun. If you're looking for a perfect beach house, choose this one!
