About Brett & Kris Russell, Owner

We are self employed with 4 children who keep us hopping every day! We live in Wilmington and feel blessed to be so close to the ocean - - we hope to always live in the area.

Brett & Kris Russell, Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Brett & Kris Russell, Owner chose Topsail Island

We have always wanted a house by the beach. We've been traveling to Surf City for 8 years and LOVE the laid back nature of the beach town. We found this house in 2011 and fell in love with it! We knew it would be a great rental home and that it would also allow us to make memories with our family.

Perfect location, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, beautiful, comfortable, with nice appliances and furnishings, but not so nice/fancy that it wasn't livable. Kris was very accommodating and easy to work with. The service was very personal. Great location. Having the pool, hot tub, AND beach right there made it very nice. We want to go back.

Best House we've ever rented on NC Coast

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything that was touted and more.The best equipped home for kitchen needs, pool, beach and deck chairs, grilling, games, and overall livability we've had in our 10+ years of coming to the NC Coast. We had 25 people ranging from ages 2 to 88 and the house was PERFECT for everyone. Easy beach and pool access -- and super close to anything you need. House was VERY clean -- bedrooms worked great for the small kids and the adults. HIGHLY recommend this property. The owners were fantastic to deal with too!!!!

Excellent place, excellent owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 32 people aged 3 months to 91 years old rented this beautiful house and one across the street. We had very enjoyable gatherings because of the nice layout of this home. It is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfy, the rooms are spacious. It was well cleaned. We enjoyed the pool and the beach on a daily basis. It was nice having plenty of beach chairs provided so that we could "claim" our area of the beach since the general public tends to find that area desirable. The owners are wonderful and actively interested in having the occupants have a wonderful stay. We felt blessed to have found such a special place after renting in Ocean Isle or Surf City a week every year for the last 20. The only reason I would not give it an excellent review is because it will make it harder for us to get. :)

Memories that are priceless

  • 5 of 5

My family arrived at 502 on may 5th 2012. We had 21 in total and never hurt for room to be together or if we needed, time away. This is the second year we have stayed on topsail island and last year was wonderful and a beautiful home. When my family walked into this house and they were speechless, my kids said "mom we never thought you could top last year but OMG this house is amazing. Not only is the house beautiful you don't want for anything all of your needs are fulfilled and more. The pool was a great addition when you needed a break from the beach you can relax at the pool and the little ones can swim for hours. I also had young adults ages 17-21 they slept in the lower level and that worked for all of us. Although I really never left the house except to go grocery shopping, the house is close to town and you can walk to get ice cream or go to eat or what ever your heart desires. The owners of this house are as nice as can be and are very interested in making sure your stay is the best it can be. If I could give this more than five stars I would. We are so hoping to return next year.
