About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Wonderful views of the Topsail Sound and the Ocean! Short walk to the beach and sound. Plenty of decks to enjoy all the 'Blue Waters' views! New flat screen TVs and of course internet service. Watch the sun rise from the front deck and sunset from the back deck. Watch Dolphins play in the sound. Go kayaking in banks channel with access to the intercoastal waterway. The living area on the top floor has beautiful hardwood floors, fireplace, open kitchen, dining area, bedroom with Queen bed and full bath. The lower floor has a bedroom with a pyramid bed (bunk bed with double and twin), a bedroom with queen bed, and a master suite with king-size bed. Marina, restaurant, and shopping close by, with the beach and sound access only a short distance away! The south end of Topsail Island is beautiful, walk around the point and watch the sunset while you play in tidal pools. During the summer Loggerhead Turtles lay eggs along the shore that hatch during the warm summer nights. Dolphins play in the surf on the beach and surfing is great. The beach and dunes are growing on the south end leaving isolated dunes and wide white sandy beaches. Fishing is outstanding

Keywords: Waterviews all around. Great fishing and Kayaking. Easy beach and sound access.

About The Owner

We purchased our Topsail beach home after years of looking in other beach towns because of how much we loved the south end of this Island. Beautiful blue water, tidal pools, and sound access for Kayaking are all great here. The fishing and surfing is also fantastic.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We came from all over the country to celebrate my father's 85th birthday. The house was very comfortable, completely equipped with everything we needed- and some things you we didn't think of, but were glad we had! The beds were comfortable, plenty of seating, great TV, gorgeous views front and back, easy access. And, if you are in an overflow situation, and don't want to rent a second house, the Sea Vista Motel is almost directly across the street. We made good use of the sports closet, which is filled with beach supplies, 4 bicycles and two kayaks. We have these birthday weekso once every five years, and have rented several houses on Topsail. We all agreed, this was the best. My Dad says the only thing missing is an elevator.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review. We think South Topsail is a great beach and location. We strive to make the house a second home that we and our quests can enjoy. Hope you get to visit us again. MB

Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great rate, great owner. Plenty of room for two families to stay together. Even though this is not a very commercial area we were still pleased to find great food when we did choose to eat out and great little gift shops for the perfect souvenirs. Enjoyed taking the kayaks in the sound and biking around the area.

Blue Waters is the only place we stay in Topsail!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was the first family to rent Blue Waters. We loved it so much we go back year after year. The house is very clean. The furnishings are welcoming and comfortable. The top floor has views of both the ocean and the sound. There are several restaurants close by where we enjoy eating pizza and fresh seafood. There are little shops nearby where we always find a reminder of Topsail to take home with us. We have brought both family and friends to Blue Waters over the years for a wonderful beach vacation and I would recommend this place to everyone.
