Come and try the 'Larry’s Lazy Susan Experience' at Topsail Beach for a Lazy relaxing refreshing vacation which our guests have enjoyed for 20 years. Larry’s Lazy Susan has been recently expanded and renovated by myself an Architect to provide you with a relaxing home to experience the beauty and wonderful sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean.

Your family will enjoy Larry’s Lazy Susan a peaceful Lazy getaway at our beach house only a short drive from shopping, dining, golf, fishing and other activities. The house is located on a secondary street off the beaten path great for jogging and cycling. You will feel like you are literally on the beach with only a few steps, COME SEE HOW CLOSE!!

Larry’s Lazy Susan has two wonderful oceanfront decks for your family and friends to enjoy. An intimate upper deck allows you a panoramic view of the beaches below. Enjoy sitting up here and relaxing in the warm Carolina sun. The lower deck offers a cooler, shaded retreat to sit on while watching your children play in the sand.

Bring your fishing poles and try surf fishing, you may catch something great for dinner! Our house accommodates up to 15 guests with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.

Larry’s Lazy Susan is a short drive to downtown(approximately ( 5 miles)

A typical day for us includes morning coffee on the ocean side deck watching the shrimp boats just off shore dragging their nets, birds flocking behind feeding on the left over shrimp and fish. The dolphins trailing behind and the pelicans are floating in formation along the shore.

After a walk on the beach looking for shells and sharks teeth, we decide to set up our beach chairs and umbrella for a day of sun bathing and swimming in the surf. We take a break to play some beach games, volleyball and fly a kite.

After a fun filled beach day and as the sun begins to set on the sound side, a beautiful view is afforded from the three decks on the street side. After dinner is prepared in the kitchen which has a view of both the ocean and the sound, the dining room which seats 8 at a square table has a wonderful view of the setting sun across the sound, the breakfast/dining area has ocean view dining seating 6 at a rectangle table where you can enjoy the ocean breeze. Having this dining area located off of the living area provides the gamers in the family a great place to play games, put together puzzles!

The kitchen also has bar seating for three on bar stools where the family can join in on the preparation of dinner.

Come, enjoy and make your own memories at Topsail Island and Larry’s Lazy Susan. You will LOVE the 'LAZY SUSAN EXPERIENCE'

About Larry Martin

I am a self employed architect in Virginia, which has been very beneficial with our great beach house since we have renovated and added additional rooms recently in 2011. Susan and I have six children that were all young when we purchased the house. The house was perfect for our family but now that our family has grown, we expanded and renovated to provide more room..

Larry Martin purchased this house in 1994

Why Larry Martin chose North Topsail Beach

We vacationed at North Topsail Beach for two years prior to purchasing and rented our house the summer before we purchased. We love the secluded beach only a few steps from our deck (about as close as you can get). A great place to bring the family for a relaxing LAZY vacation. We love to swim, surf fish, boat and jet ski, fly kites, play in the surf, hunt for shells and sharks teeth of which we have thousands. Other activities include golfing, tennis, biking, etc. The house is on a less traveled street off of the main road (less commercial traffic), but very easily accessible and many conveniences within 5 minutes including several restaurants with affordable prices.

What makes this house unique

We are able to view nature at its finest, watching the dolphins play in the ocean, pelicans and gulls flying in formation, watching loggerhead turtles laying their eggs and watching them hatch at our steps to the beach(which we have done). Views that are spectacular from all rooms, multiple ocean and sound side decks and the PROXIMITY of the house to the ocean. The ELEVATOR which is extremely helpful for the elderly, disabled and moving in luggage. The separate under counter 50# ICE MAKER is a must for plenty of ice for drinks and coolers.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Open and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the beach house. It was open enough to not get on each other nerves yet cozy enough to spend quality time together. The beach front access was definitely key to enjoying a fun filled day fishing.

Owner's Response: Patrick, glad you enjoyed you stay at our house. The house is open especially in the living area which overlooks the beach and is very close to the beach. We area about as close as you can get to the beach. We do have some cozy areas in the house, the loft area is a favorite spot to chat and look over the beach with a great view. Fishing is usually very good in the fall and very close as well. Please come again, Thanks, Larry

Our week at the beach was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for my big family. We had two teens, two big dogs and my elderly Mother and we were all comfortable. The location is quiet and the beach is beautiful. We would definitely stay here again. Topsail Island is the best, especially in October.

Owner's Response: Frances, glad the house was large enough for your family. The elevator is a must for the elderly and great also for moving in and out. We are located on a quiet street with very little traffic, a good spot to walk and cycle. Our beach is quite as well and sparsely populated especially in the fall. The fall is great at the beach and temperatures are usually very mild. Please come back, we love repeat guests, Thanks, Larry

My home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Always enjoy staying here. The upgrades of the flooring, furniture, refrigerator, and TV made it even better. We had a hiccup with the satellite but Larry did everything possible to make things right for us. The house is perfect for our family and our furry family feel right at home too. Love Topsail and staying here is like a second home.

We have definitely made several upgrades this past year and have plans for more next year including more kitchen improvements. There are several repeat guests that feel the same as you regarding our home being like a second home and treat our home like their own. You have been vacationing with us for several years, please return next year, Thanks, Larry

Much needed R & R

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent a week a Larry's Lazy Susan with a group of my 2 legged and 4 legged friends. Larry was very interested in our stay and checked in frequently. The thoughtfulness related to the needs of individuals traveling with their dogs was sweet and helpful. There were dog bowls for the deck as well as plywood "gates" so that the dogs could be on the deck without needing leashed. Thank you for sharing your house with us and we hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: Cindy, we always try to please our guests and provide a welcoming home for our guests and their four-legged family members. We understand how important it is to bring them along for the vacation. We are very glad you had a wonderful time and look forward to your return. We are in the process of making improvements to the ocean front deck including expansions which will also be better for the pets as well. The ocean front deck is a great place to view the ocean and beach and is extremely close to the beach. Please do return, Thanks, Larry

Terrific Oceanfront Beach House

  • 4 of 5

It's hard to beat walking off the back deck directly onto the beach. When we weren't on the beach or in the water, my wife and I really enjoyed sitting on deck with an outstanding view of the ocean. The house is nice and roomy and the ice machine in the kitchen is an excellent idea. The only complaint is that the back deck is a bit small and seemed crowded with more than 5 people as there are really only 2 excellent seats. The other chairs are too small and flimsy. It would be nice to expand the deck or put in some better furniture that can have a view over the railing instead of through it. Overall though, the house is wonderful and we had an excellent week.

The house is a bit old, but was clean and well maintained. There was new furniture in the living room and a huge flatscreen TV.

We also took advantage of having Chef Yogi come and cook a special dinner for 11 people on Sunday evening. It was a fantastic meal and definitely one of the highlights of the week. Chef Yogi is an entertaining character, and is extremely nice and friendly. He sure can cook. He served a dinner of local seafood and made a couple of pies for dessert that were amazing.

This was our first vacation on Topsail Island, but it will not be our last.

Owner's Response: Ron, we are glad you enjoyed the great views of the ocean. From our deck it’s just a short walk to the beach, about as short as it gets. We are already in the process of trying to enlarge the beach deck which requires permission from beach management authorities. Hopefully this will be completed by 2017 and possibly with an enclosed shower below. With the increased deck size, it will allow additional seating to be provided. We do have now two picnic tables seating 4 people each on this deck which are good for having a meal or snack. The house has been completely renovated with an addition in 2011 adding two bedrooms, two baths, new kitchen and an elevator. We are glad you had Yogi prepare a meal for you, we have had numerous guests that have enjoyed this as well. Glad you liked Topsail, please return, Thanks, Larry

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable week at Larry's Lazy Susan. We originally picked this house because it was pet friendly and had an elevator, both necessities for our family. The kitchen was well stocked for the multiple meals we made there. Everything was clean and comfortable. Our favorite spot ended up being the high top in the corner of the deck for enjoying coffee in the mornings and a drink in the evenings. Having the boards to gate the dog in was super helpful for allowing our dog to dry off on the deck after a day at the beach. The beach was phenomenal and nothing was better than walking down the few steps from the house to the sand. Thanks for a great week at your house!!

Owner's Response: Marci, there are some great views of the beach from the upper balcony deck. The elevator is very helpful for guests that have mobility issues and also great for moving luggage and groceries. We also have had numerous handicapped guests in wheelchairs. Our dogs are special to our family and we try to make our house as pet friendly as possible. They do like spending time on the deck looking over the beach which is very close only a few steps as we say in our description of our house. Our guests do enjoy cooking wonderful meals in our well equipped kitchen. We also recommend as many of our guests have, utilized our private chef to prepare dinner for their family with great satisfaction. We are pleased you had a relaxing week at our house and hope you return, Thanks, Larry

The house is located off the main road of the island on a small residential street providing more privacy and less traffic. Located about halfway between Surf City and Sneads Ferry, a short drive to either for shopping, restaurants, marinas, seafood and golf.

Loggerhead turtle watching, great shark teeth hunting, kite flying, crabbing, surf fishing, surfing, swimming and golf.
