we had a long list of problems that we found upon our arrival. The rental company said our owner fixes his own problems. but that was not true in our case. Most worrisome is that we found the previous renters had dis-assembled the smoke alarms and the house reeked of tobacco smoke, we immediately called to complain, but nothing was done. The internet was erratic and finally after numerous calls, an internet man came out, open the router system where we heard "danger, you are violating personal space, the police will be notified, exit immediately." The women were most upset about the numerous cameras throughout the house that "monitored" the activities.
This house has everything you need for a great family vacation. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The two swimming pools, the pool table, dartboards, and plenty of beach toys made for lots of fun. The gorgeous views and the quick beach access were also wonderful. Our group of over 30 had plenty of room and it was wonderful to have the huge kitchen to cook in and enjoy our meals together. If we hadn't had the problems with the Internet and the rooftop pool not working correctly it would have been perfect.

My family and I had the privilege of attending a wedding at 105 Bay Ct, North Topsail Beach. Originally the event set to take place on the roof, however the weather was not cooperating. It was held inside in the main living room in front of a grand stone fireplace. Our group of 40+ still had plenty of room for all of the guests to be seated, as well as use of the near by kitchen and extended dining room for the luncheon and reception. The additional kitchen downstairs was also nice to help "Middle of the Island" caterers with preparing food and provide extra storage space. Following our fellowship the living room was cleared for dancing and more social fun well into the evening. We enjoyed the surround sound systems for playing music and making speeches and announcements, and the large HD TV for providing slide shows and pictures of past family events. We also used the wireless network to Skype in distant family members that were unable to attend in person. The house was large enough to accommodate the entire wedding party, special guests, and other extended family members as well. The children had plenty of room to play and enjoy activities without having an impact on the ceremony space or any of the others guests. Some family members really enjoyed the heated pool atop the roof. Access to the mini kitchen was essential to our roof top entertainment and was great to have near by without having to go down to another floor to retrieve drinks or snacks. The steam room was nice as well following a swim to rid our selves of the chill from leaving the pool area. It was great that each room, including bedrooms, had its own digital television to accommodate everyone's taste in TV entertainment, as well as helping keep the kids occupied when they did not want to be involved in other events going on. This house was a great place for such a large social event. Thanks so much to the owners for a great beach wedding experience!

I should thank my daughter for picking out the largest, most unique house for her wedding. I would have been more frugal. She was wise. Her wedding was at the beginning of the week, allowing the bride and grooms families to remain there together for several days in that beautiful, vacation setting. Having room for everyone helped us become one big family and create memories for a lifetime.
The house was wonderful. All Pros, no Cons.
The rental agents were also all "Pros".
Both daughters are now married, and I'm trying to figure out how we can rent that house again. I'm sure we'll think of something.
Thanks to everyone involved! Well Done! Read more

Left on 09/28/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Rosetta's Kitchen crew
We really enjoyed our time here, despite the minor issues with maintenance that had been caused by the previous tenets. The house was a dream, the view was worth the $ alone, and the staff that came by were great to deal with.
Everyone in our whole group felt special, and my hubby/king and i really appreciated the king suite which surpassed our expectations. My kids and i had bubble bath extremes in the jet tub :)
We were close to a surf shop, several grocery choices, local fish seller, and aBC... what more could you ask!
We even were surprised by the amount of wildlife watching we did without even leaving the palace! a fox, blue herons, pelicans, turtles, dolphins, and a tree frog who came right on inside when the door was left open!
well done all... nice spot! Read more
Thanks so much for this lovely review. We are delighted to hear that you all enjoyed yourselves so much. It sounds like you really had a blast!
We appreciate your patience with us as we resolved the minor maintenance issues. It is our pleasure serving you, so please give us a call whenever you are ready to come back: 800-762-3961.
Plenty of room!

The house is enormous with ample room for a large party. We had around 20 people and everyone had a bed. The upper deck on the house is an excellent feature, providing sun for the sunbathers and nice views for everyone else. Having 2 pools was nice as well.
Inside you have 2 full kitchens which works out for grocery storage and for when things get crowded in the other kitchen. The beds pictured on the website are not the same beds that are in there anymore so we had to adjust sleeping arrangements accordingly, but that wasn't a big deal. We just had some loving couples in bunk rooms. Though it isn't directly on the beach, it's still a wonderful, carefully maintained home that will enable a large group to have a great vacation. We would definitely use it again.
One downside is that the mattresses aren't that comfortable but one gets used to them for a vacation.

As stated previously, it was a very nice week, but I had some reservations about the house especially the safety aspect. The rooftop pool and hot tub were nice features, but the decking of rooftop was tile and extremely slippery when pool was in use or even after a rain. There was a small rubber mat at one side, but should have had rubber flooring around pool and entrance into house. 3 of our guests slipped and fell and it was not due to running or carelessness. The only other negative I had was the entire house was tile and with no carpet or curtains, the living area upstairs was very loud. Pool table located right next to open area where TV was, made for a very impractical place to watch TV if anyone was playing an exciting game of pool...too loud and too much of an echoe.
The kitchen was very well stocked and the views from the rooftop deck were lovely. The walk to the beach was very easy. Treasury Realty was great as well. Read more
Thanks so much for your kind and candid review of this amazing home and for your very positive comments about Treasure Realty. I am glad to hear that you all enjoyed your stay. I do apologize that you had a couple of people slip on the top deck. Although, we have had no previous complaints about this, I will pass your feedback about adding some additional rubber flooring/mats on to the owner. With regard to curtains, this home, as depicted in the photos on our website, does have blinds on all the windows. Many of the homes on the island have tile flooring, since it stands up so well to water. I hope that helps. We do appreciate your feedback! Please give us a call whenever you are ready to return to Topsail: 800-762-3961.

This house is huge with more amenities than any other vacation rental we have ever used before. Our grandchildren all aged 5 and under were safe, had fun and enjoyed the playground, pool and porches. The adults had so much room, that finding a private time alone or with a few people was easy. Other times, a dozen or so could hang out at the pool area upstairs, the kitchen/dining room area or living room.
The games, pool table, sauna, etc. were perfect in that all ages of people can be entertained.
The kitchen was great for our 28 opeople to eat at their leisure or all together. The multiple tables and many chairs and barstools were enough for all of us.
The bedrooms were more than adequate for individuals, couples and entire families with kids.
The porches were very enjoyable.
We highly recommend this house to anyone with large families or large groups of friends. The location was perfect to grocery stores, restaurants and shops.
This is an incredible house with everything you could possibly want. It is just a short walk to the beach and is a perfect house if you have little kids with you as well. Also, The owner is incredibly nice and easy to work with.
Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that you found this home provided a relaxing and comfortable stay for your large group. Please let us know when you are ready to plan your next vacation: 1-800-762-3961.
Family vacation dream house
Left on 04/10/2012 for a stay in August 2011 | B Schmeltzle
My family of 8 vacations in Topsail every summer and every few years we are joined by extended family. This house was the ideal spot for us. Our group of 19 ranged in age from 2 to 73 with interests ranging from sun and sand to fishing. Some like to be in the middle of the action all the time and some like their quiet alone time. This house had something and somewhere for everyone. The kitchen was a dream and suited our choice to eat in all week. We missed our one night to eat out due to the hurricane evacuation. Proximity to uncrowded beach, the pool, and canal fishing made this the house for us. The pool table was a great activity for all ages to share in. Looking forward to another stay at this house in a few years. Read more
