Why Ben chose Topsail Island

What's not to love about North Topsail Beach! After searching many months for the right home, I finally found it here. The beautiful view of the ocean and the sound of the waves says it all! Newly renovated, with fresh paint, new tile and carpet. Quiet beach, as if its all your own!

What makes this house unique

Spectacular views of the ocean & intracoastal waterway (both w/ unobstructed views) and plenty of deck to enjoy them both! Private in-ground pool w/ privacy fence. The tiki bar puts an added touch to the pool area for fun in the sun!!!

Perfect home and location for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to spend a week here in July/August 2016. We are a large group, including 9 adults (4 couples), 5 children/teenagers and a toddler. Overall, we cannot recommend this home enough.

The interior of the house is spacious, beds are generally comfortable, and the kitchen is well equipped. The home is clean and well maintained. The washer and dryer were a huge plus to avoid leaving wet swimming suits and towels hanging all over the house everyday. We unfortunately had a few rainy days during our week-long stay, but the house is large enough for everyone to spend time indoors without feeling cramped.

What really makes the house is the exterior. You have completely unobstructed, beautiful views of the ocean and the bay. There are decks on all levels, on both the front and the back of the house. Each deck is equipped with a chairs, a bench and/or a hammock. We had morning coffee overlooking the ocean every single day. Our evenings were spent back out on the decks, laughing and listening to the sounds of the ocean. There are SO MANY decks that, even with 15 of us in the home, it was easy to sneak away for a quiet moment. The private pool is wonderful. It is large enough that everyone could comfortably be in it yet small enough to easily keep an eye on all of the kids. And the quaint tiki bar is another awesome addition to the home; we kept drinks and snacks in the full size refrigerator at the tiki bar to avoid constantly running up and down the stairs and getting pool water in the house. There is a small yard right next to the pool for the kids to run around or for lawn games. The beach is just across a somewhat busy road and it is clean and uncrowded. We took many, many nighttime walks along the beach with the entire family.

My only suggestions echo what others have said. The cactuses should be removed from the pool area. We were fortunate to avoid any injuries but definitely had a few nervous moments with a toddler and children around the pool. This is an AWESOME family vacation home, so I imagine this is an issue many renters run into. Additionally, the teenagers complained about the beds in the double bunk bed room being uncomfortable. Because it was the middle of the summer, they ended up using the comforters as extra padding and slept with just a sheet on top and were able to sleep just fine.

The owner, Ben, is great and always promptly responded to my messages. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We were there the 3rd week in September, eleven (11) of us, and we had a wonderful time. The view from the house was absolutely great. We were able to witness the catch, tag and release of a 12 ft 2 in Hammerhead shark the one evening and that's when I was told by some that this was their best vacation ever. Since it was late in the season we were starting to believe that we would not get the opportunity to see any dolphins, but we did get to see some going by our last evening there. We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday that week with most of our family there. And we did go to the "Steeler" bar on Sunday and got to see the Steeler's win over Cincinnati! Again, an absolutely wonderful week. We do hope Ben's house survived the storm caused by Hurricane Michael.

Awesome place for family vacation'

  • 5 of 5

This was the second straight summer we stayed at Go Big or Go Home. Loved the house and the private pool is great for keeping the kids entertained, great views of the marsh and the ocean which is right across the street. The beach is clean and uncrowded, would definitely reccomend staying here to anyone visiting Topsail and when we return it's certainly where we plan on staying. Owner is accomodating and very available for any questions or concerns we had during either visit, can't wait for next year!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property more than exceeded our expectations. The house is well cared for, decorated tastefully, and the kitchen is extremely well-stocked. The best part about this property is the exterior - the multiple decks with great seating and beautiful views, the pool, the tiki bar with fridge (that was super handy- we kept all our cold drinks and snacks for hanging out around the pool!), and the seating around the pool. We had more than enough room at this property with 9 adults and 3 children. There is great variety at this property - you can relax on the upper deck overlooking the beach or the sound (and the pool area), swim or just relax by the pool, sit in the swing chairs on the lower deck, play lawn games, eat and drink around the tiki bar, and of course, walk to the beach. The walk to the beach is super easy, and in our opinion, this property sits along one of the best areas of beach in North Topsail. We absolutely loved our stay here and would most definitely recommend it!

All that and more

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 30th family summer get together. The house was as described and more. The ocean view was awesome and totally unobstructed and the porch chairs were comfortable. The sound view was also spectacular for the sunsets,fireworks and lightning shows. It was fun to hang out at the tiki bar and so convenient to have a fridge and gas grill available there. The pool was clean and so beautifully landscaped. There was also room for corn hole and other games. A lot of my family likes to cook and all were happy with the well stocked kitchen we did not eat out the whole week. The beach was so easy to get to,and every one enjoyed walking,swimming and watching for dolphins. My family kept thanking me for finding such a great house. Ben responded quickly to all my emailed questions prior to our trip and even called the day we arrived to make sure everything was good and that we didn't have any questions. I would certainly recommend this house to my friends.
