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. You can call me at 540-616-8447.

Larry Martin purchased this house in 1994

Why Larry Martin chose North Carolina

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.

Lazy is the Word! :-)

  • 4 of 5

Larry's Lazy Susan provided us with a nice "lazy" vacation. We loved the homey feeling, the numerous decks and the super closeness of the sand and water. The elevator was a major plus for us in our moving in and out...the part we always dread. Thank you for sharing your beach home with our family!

Owner's Response: Anita, we are glad you enjoyed the closeness of the house to the beach which is one on the many advantages to our home. The others include the elevator, the bulk ice maker, large well equipped kitchen, dining with views of the beach and sound, large beach deck with an open and enclosed hot and cold water showers, plenty of seating and a great view from several decks, comfortable bedding, numerous baths and HD satellite televisions in all rooms. We do offer a laid back lazy vacation getaway. Please return, Thanks, Larry

Perfect beachfront family home!

  • 5 of 5

You can tell Larry and Susan love this home and stay there often. Lots of special touches you usually don't find in a rental: very well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, excellent deck chairs and plentiful seating at several dining tables, a room filled with chairs, umbrellas, boogey boards, etc. The house is on the beach--just step off the deck stairs onto the sand. Plenty of space with 5 bedrooms and a loft with a futon. Our family of 8 loved every minute! Thanks, Larry and Susan!!

Owner's Response: Dori, we do love our little piece of paradise. Susan was at the house prior to your arrival for a week, she did not want to leave. We try to make our house feel like home for us as well as our guests. We want our home to be comfortable for our guests and have all of the conveniences possible. We are always making improvements, just this spring we expanded our beachfront deck with more seating, doggie gates and two showers. We love being so close to the beach, great for watching the dolphins, birds and other wildlife along with the family. We also love every minute were there. Thanks for the review and come again, Larry

Awesome family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

Our blended family of 15 just returned from a fabulous week at Larry's Lazy Susan!! Two of our family members use wheelchairs, so the elevator helped make this trip possible. The home is spacious and we never felt crowded - even during meal times.... The kitchen has everything you can imagine! We enjoyed spending time on the large deck - overlooking the ocean. So relaxing and tranquil! This was our 2nd visit to Larry's Lazy Susan and hope that we will be able to return again soon! Thank you, Larry, for all of your assistance and helping make sure our visit went smoothly!.

Owner's Response: Karen, We are always glad to have repeat guests. We are so glad you had a wonderful time again. We have had several guests in wheelchairs and some repeat like in your group. Our house works well for those in wheelchairs. We just expanded the deck overlooking the beach including wheelchair access, doubling the size, adding new seating to provide our guests with the best experience ever. We too are a blended family of 15 as well, with the recent addition of our latest granddaughter. We have had several guests employ our guest chef for a personally prepared meal in our kitchen with raving reviews. As always we try to provide any assistance possible to our guests to ensure they have a great vacation. We appreciate all of our repeat guests and please come again, just don’t wait as long. Thanks for the review, Larry

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Larry's Lazy Susan. The house is pleasant and accommodating, with beautiful views of the ocean and a well equipped kitchen. You can sit on the deck and watch the waves roll in, or watch your family play on the beach, or in the ocean. The house is located in a quiet residential area, and the beach is nice and flat, with moderate surf. We had fun watching the helicopters fly over from Camp Lejeune, the marine base nearby. And we enjoyed the house itself. Loved the fact that there are 2 dining tables, so we could play games on one, and eat at the other. And we found the bedrooms accommodating and the beds comfortable. My husband and I stayed in the downstairs master king, which was quiet and comfortable. Located at the back of the house, it was far enough away from the living room and kitchen area, that it was completely quiet. We recommend Larry's Lazy Susan and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Beth, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at the “Lazy Susan”. Our views are spectacular form our new expanded deck only a few steps from the beach. Our new deck includes an open and enclosed shower with hot and cold water. The enclosed shower is a response to our guest’s suggestions. We are always trying to improve the experience our house has to offer. The main dining area is located to overlook the view of the sound and also provide a view of the ocean. The breakfast area overlooks the ocean and beach, also with a view of the sound. The master king bedroom has a private deck which overlooks the sound, great for viewing the sunsets. The house accommodates large groups while providing privacy for the individual. Thanks for the review and please return, Larry

Happy to Have Been There!

  • 5 of 5

We were happy with our time at Larry's home. It had a wonderful view since it is located on the beach. It was spacious, but not oversized with comfy furniture and plenty of windows. The kitchen was equipped with an assortment of pots, pans and serving dishes which lightened our packing needs. It also came with an elevator and easy access to the back deck.

The owners shared a great deal of information by print and over the phone about local eating establishments. If you feel the need to stay connected while there, the internet service is fast and tv's are located in every room. Instructions for use were easily found and written in a friendly, welcoming style. This is certainly a place we would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Kathy, we are so glad you were happy with our home and your family had a wonderful time. The views of the beach are great from the inside and exterior. We try our best to keep the house in excellent condition and well maintained and equipped. The elevator and exterior ramp provide easy access to the house and beach. We utilize the hospitality app to provide useful information for our guests about the house, amenities and surrounding attractions and great places to eat. Thanks for the kind review, please return anytime, Thanks, Larry

We loved the house! It was perfect for our winter beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of ten long-time church friends who enjoy getting away together! Larry's Lazy Susan was the perfect place for relaxing, reminiscing, catching-up, eating and just being together! We hope to do this again next year!

We have great views of the beach and ocean from our living area and deck. We are extremely close to the beach which is extremely important in a beach house. We are glad you are coming back next year and you are already booked. Thanks for the review, Larry
