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!!!

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.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here in North Topsail. Having 18 people(6 adults and 12 kids) we maxed out this house in capacity and still felt comfortable. There is plenty of outdoor living space that allows you to have that large of a party and not feel cramped. The kids loved the Tiki Bar area and night swimming. The ocean view is great for a second row house, especially sitting on the third deck in the awesome chairs, which was the highlight of my trip. The owner was very easy to deal with and answered any questions we had when needed. The only mild complaints would be that there is too much outdoor lighting that you cant turn off, which being from the country we tend to like it dark. Also the twin mattresses in the bunk room and the twin extras aren't fit for adults(imagine 2x4 frame with springs wrapped in fabric with egg carton foam over them), but for kids, who cares.

Overall it was a great place to stay and I would stay their again in without hesitation, which is as good of a recommendation as you can get from me.

Summer vacation at an island oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had our first experience of ever renting a house for vacation and could not have had a better experience. The house was lovely and comfortably housed 4 families (11 people total). Ben was amazing at communication when we had any issues/concerns. Love the fact that he was available and almost felt we bothered him too much. If I had anything negative to say, it's that the cacti around the pool needs to go. We lost a couple beach balls and even had to pluck quills out of people because of them. They are not the best plant to have around a pool. Overall, this was one of the best family vacations ever and are looking forward to coming back next year!!!!

Relaxing beach time

  • 5 of 5

We needed a week at the beach other than Saturday-Saturday so that our children and their families could join us for a long weekend. Ben was gracious enough to let us do that. We were very pleased with the spaciousness of the house and all it had to offer. It is across the road from the ocean but with an unobstructed view from the great room of the house. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch and viewing the ocean. The sound side at the back of the house was also beautiful. We did not use the pool since it was October and too cool but the pool area was very nice. This was our first trip to N. Topsail and this house made it special!

great view, needs updating

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just finished our two week stay. This was our first home rental that we have ever done, even though we travel extensively.

The views of the ocean and sound are great. The ocean is just down the stairs across the street and over the dunes. In addition, at high tide the ocean is almost up to the dunes so your view is terrific. A favorite spot was sitting on the deck and seeing the waves crash in under the moonlight. The back of the house has a nice view over the bay. Sunsets are pretty. Further the view from the kitchen and family room is also good so even when inside, you still can see the ocean. At every meal in the dining room, the views are beautiful.

The property is not maintained at the standard of the view. One sofa was torn. The other sofa had a not-so-clean slip cover on it. The kitchen had a hodgepodge of utensils and plates. Most were filthy. We had to clean everything we used before using it and again afterwards. The cabinets had a layer of dirt in them even though they say a housekeeper comes every week or so. So we cleaned out the cabinet and the plates. It would be nice if he could keep a standardized amount of stuff in the kitchen to ensure that the quality is maintained. The pool toys were in a bin filled with rain water. The beach chairs were rusted as well as the chairs on the front deck. I know it is the end of season but this seemed to be more than one season worth of wear and rust.

The pool was great and clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean. All the bedrooms had a walk-out to the balcony with views of the ocean or sound which was really nice. The washer and dryer worked well.

The Tiki bar outside by the pool was a really fun lunchtime spot for all of us. Although make sure to bring citronella candles because the flies are bad. The outside refrigerator was really nasty, clearly the housekeepers don't clean this area. The kids really liked the Tiki bar and the radio.

Ben was great in booking the trip and was a good communicator. A bathroom toilet was running and he got a repair guy. I mentioned the pool guy had been there but there was some sand in the pool and he came out again. When I mentioned that the pots were unusable, he told me he would reimburse me if I wanted to buy a new one for the place.

The views and beach access made up for the other items. The items above were a distraction and stopped it from being a 5 star experience.

Owner's Response: I welcome feedback from all my guest it helps me make the changes required to keep my place a great vacation destination. The refrigerator in the Tiki bar was a new addition this year and unfortunately the cleaning team was not cleaning it. The fridge outside has been cleaned and is part of the procedure going forward. At the start of every season I change out old pot's and pans but unfortunately not all guest take care of or clean the pans as well as I'd like for the next guest. I will continue to upgrade the kitchen amenities to ensure it's a place my guest and I would want to cook in. The couches are a tough one, folks tend to sit on the couch in wet trunks from the pool covered in chorine which destroys the fabric. The couches were very expensive but only a couple years old. I will be replacing them over the winter with a more resilient fabric. Thanks for the feedback.
