NEW FOR 2014: New Queen mattresses and kitchen items!! Come enjoy our home and benefit from the curative powers of the sand, surf and sun! Completed in November 2009, our "cozy beach cottage" is designed to make your visit as carefree as possible! Although it is over 4100 square feet and four levels, it feels just like home. With a traditional floor plan, not reverse, you will not waste precious family minutes running up and down stairs. Yet the views remain magnificent, with the main living space on the first floor feeling as though it is one with the ocean. Ample wrap around decks on the mid two floors and a private oceanfront deck for the... two top floor master suites present spectacular ocean views with every turn. Or, follow the decks around to the front soundside of the house and watch the sails pass on the Intracoastal Waterway where the beautiful sunsets provide the atmosphere. And, of course, these decks lead you to the private cross-over, where the beach paradise awaits! The spacious first floor is filled with all the amenities necessary for your visit. There are natural hardwood floors throughout the entire home to carry the wonderful beach feeling inside. The kitchen boasts granite countertops, all stainless steel appliances which include large refrigerator, two dishwashers, two ovens, built-in microwave and all the cookware and utensils you'll need. The kitchen island provides plenty of prep space and the elevated sink counter and adjacent comfy arm chairs offer plenty of space for the cooks' helpers or visitors. In the adjoining dining area, there is a custom made wood trestle table that easily seats 14. And, just next to that, the necessary "kids' table" for overflow or more intimate dining. For easy serving, there is a generous side buffet. The wet bar, with an ice maker and wine cooler, helps keep the libations flowing. And, finally, to complete the dining experience, the whole house stereo sound system, complete with I home, includes the decks and fills your nights and days with your favorite tunes. For evening entertainment, wind down with the gas fireplace or watch that long-anticipated movie on the extra large flat screen HDTV, complete with DVD player, cable and movie channels. For those otherwise inclined, enjoy the games in the oceanfront sitting room, with game table and comfy swivel-rocking chairs. Or feel free to use the picnic table on this floor's oceanfront deck. For those poor souls who must "work", the first floor office/den is available, complete with desk, cable, wireless and high speed internet access, flat screen TV with DVD. This room converts to the 7th bedroom with a twin size daybed and an air mattress, closet and full bath. Finally, when it is time for your well-deserved repose, take the four-stop elevator to the third and fourth levels, where six soothing and inviting bedrooms await. The third floor consists of 4 bedrooms, each with its private bath. Each bedroom also has its own flat screen TV with cable and DVD and alarm clock. The two sound side rooms have two sets of bunk beds, dressers and two closets. The two oceanside rooms have beautiful white wrought iron queen beds - so romantic - with their own glass doors to the large wrap-around deck. This deck has plenty of high quality deck furniture, complete with chairs, table and glider! One of the two laundry rooms is on this level, outfitted with iron and ironing board. Right next to this is a folding bench and plenty of hooks. The top "attic" floor hides two master King suites and the second laundry room. Each master suite has its own sitting room, with large flat screen TV, DVD, beverage cooler and coffee maker. The south sitting room contains a queen sleeper sofa. Each bath suite offers his and her sinks, ample shelves and counter space, private ceramic-tiled showers and tubs. The south tub is an over-sized Jacuzzi and the north tub is a porcelain claw foot soaker tub, equipped with hand-held shower! These two suites share a private oceanside deck. Lie in bed gazing at the stars and moon, lullaby provided by the ocean surf, and awake to the dolphins greeting your day! On the ground floor, you will discover 2 two car enclosed garages, and an outdoor, private, hot and cold shower. To complete the vacation experience, the children, young and old, with ping pong.

We had a great week at this place. There were 14 of us and all had plenty of space and a terrific time. A couple pairs saying that the beds were a little hard but managed to smile and enjoy the rest.. We so enjoy our room on the 4th floor as my husband and I had had an mishap riding a 4-wheeler a couple of weeks before our arrival and was healing from a broken rib..with having the sitting room in addition to the bed made it easy for him to get away in the evening to rest.. We are in our 70's and don't bounce back as fast. The laundry rooms were convenient , only thing I would recommend and sounds trivial but needed a couple of brooms , dust pan and a large cutting board. Otherwise it seemed well equipped. It was a beautiful site to see the sunrises and the shrimpers . The high tides were magnificent with the full moon .. Another treat for us ,was combing the beach , not only for shells but sea glass and the unique stones washed up on the shore.. It really was a fantastic week at the Hampton Colony. Read more

Everything was wonderful except the two queen beds were very uncomfortable for my two married children. One couple was pregnant...so they moved upstairs to the other master king. The home w
as furnished with great sitting areas and well stocked. The grandkids loved it. We would rent it next year but we want a private pool for the kids next year. We felt the community pool was not maintained as well as we would like. The two covered porches were wonderful, too. Overall, a great vacation. Thank you home owners and Treasure Realty. Read more

Celebrations despite a few issues
Left on 08/04/2013 for a stay in July 2013 |
The house was very pretty. The green color was great because when the kids were ahead of us on the beach walk they knew when to turn and go up. The bedrooms were small(especially bunk beds) than many other beach homes we have rented for the same cost and number of bedrooms. We used the rec area not as much as past beach trips because of lack of air conditioning(it's the 2nd garage area) in the hot summer. The rec area seemed like an after thought. The refrigerator is way to small for the house size. The 3 wine coolers were no use because they weren't cold enough to keep our drinks and more food iin. We used 3 coolers and ice. There is a structural issue---The first night(Sat.) we had strong storms that leaked in the 3rd floor into the 2nd floor Oceanside doors and ceiling. This set off alarms 6:30 Sunday morning. Could not determine which smoke detector it was, some are too high. Treasure Realty only told us to open doors and window. Called Fire Dept who gave us help and found the smoke detector causing the problem. Turns out after more Sun. Night storms the water leaking in the ceiling caused the short in smoke detector. Two workers came but said it probably won't be fixed till fall because the house is booked. From the fire dept shutting off all power our cable and Wi-fi went out. We finally figured out the cable but Wi-fi, we tried all normal reseting but still it didn't work. Several calls were made to Treasure Realty but no one ever came for that. We ended with no in house Internet but were able to use the wi-fi from next door but very slow. I know it's a vacation but some of us had to do a little work. We still had a great family time celebrating 3 major events.
The house is well appointed and spacious. The elevator was great for saving steps for the elders in our crowd. There are two dish washers, but refrigerator could be larger. Maintenance crew was quick to respond to our calls for a circuit breaker trip and the refrigerator not working.
We were disappointed by the condition of the beach in front of the house. While it may change over time, we had to walk through a section of rocky, slippery, beach to get to the waves. Lots of sharp oyster shells were stuck in this material and cut our feet. After experiencing this, we learned that we had to walk south about 4 houses to get around the rocky/slipper/shell conditions.
Still, the beach is always a wonderful escape. We relaxed with family, cooked great meals, played games in the evening and enjoyed some downtime. The weather cooperated with only one partially rainy day and one windy day. Nice! Read more
Thanks for your review of this lovely home. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. I will pass your suggestion for a larger refrigerator on to the homeowner. Thanks for alerting us to your issue quickly; I am glad we were able to resolve it in a timely manner.
I am sorry to hear that some in your party were cut by the shells in the ocean. That is certainly always a potential hazard, depending on the tides. As you said, the nature of the ocean floor definitely does change over time. Hopefully, this won’t be an issue whenever you return. I’m glad it was just a short walk to an area with fewer shells.
Please give us a call when you are ready to book your next Topsail Island vacation: 800-762-3961.
Fairy tail beach cottage provides the ultimate ocean front exper
Left on 04/11/2012 for a stay in December 2011 |
One of the most charming beach houses in North Topsail... this is our fourth house with this floor plan, and this is our favorite. The interiors are bright with awesome ocean views, the kitchen is large and well equipped, and the hot tub well maintained and very clean. Its close proximity to the high-rise bridge makes it very convenient to Sneads Ferry shopping and restaurants, and the beach in front of the house is great for shelling and shark tooth hunting. The upper two master bedrooms are arguably the most romantic anywhere. The owners provided a personal local contact sheet, and when we had a few minor issues, they took care of it immediately.
