This home has everything you need new super gas stove top for cooking, new appliances, wood flooring, so smells new and clean and is clean and neat.
We enjoyed being within walking distance to everything, and so close to the pier that several of our party went to the pier to fish daily.
The hot tub was great and private yet close to showers. We had plenty of space with two kitchens on seperate floors.
We had a great week of fun and sun. The house is a good value you will notice some imperfections. One of the chairs on the deck had a broken leg, which could have resulted in injury if we had not have noticed. Also, deck railing was lose be careful with children. House has a hot tub, but I did not use so I can't comment on it. Very hard for senior citizens to get down to the beach because of the sand that has been blown up on the steps at the end of the walkway, you literally have to slide down. Appliances in the kitchen looked new. Overall nice home, but I wouldn't book again with small children and seniors.

The service we received was great. When the air conditioning went out on the lower level of the house (3 bedrooms) during the night prior to July 4th a service person arrived the afternoon of July 4th following a morning call to the realtor! We were good to go after a short service call. We were afraid we would have to wait until the 5th and the heat was oppressive that week---a great week to be at the beach.
Our main complaint was mentioned in another review---the lack of towel racks. 20 people in the house and not even enough towel racks in the bathrooms for showers, never mind all the beach towels and swimsuits. Consequently, the dryer was going almost constantly. Towel racks make a lot more sense to me. There was certainly enough room.
The extra kitchen on the lower level was a godsend--plenty of fridge space. I was worried about table seating for meals upstairs based on the pictures but the extra folding table and chairs took care of our needs.
Loading the dishwasher in the main kitchen was a bit of a challenge as the door only opened partially before rubbing up against the stove cabinet. The 5 burner stove upstairs was great! All the rotating chefs in our family enjoyed it.
Plenty of parking was a plus. We had 5 cars at times but 6 would be no problem. We were just a couple doors down from the ice cream shop and the grocery store. Beach was crowded but it was the 4th of July week so to be expected.

Once again, we had a great experience on Topsail Island, and we continue to rent from Treasure Realty. Our rental, 205 S. Shore Dr., although a bit older, was clean with plenty of room. The main TV is a huge flat screen and we could all sit and watch a movie-- The avengers! (I like that the owner put couch covers on all the couches) The water was still good to go in the first week of October. It was also so close to the IGa on the Island for last minute groceries (or all the groceries) we could walk there and back. My husband walked to the fishing pier and we walked to Buddy's the bar on the beach, walked up barefoot and had a couple of beers...so fun! I want to thank all the owners of rentals because we get to experience ocean front at the beach once a year, and have never been dissappointed. Read more

A stay on the seaside needs good weather and we had that for 97.5%.
The large TV screen in the living room gave us evening after evening exciting updates on the 2012 Olympics in London. We created our own Olympics on the beach during daytime and won all the gold medals. All persons under 23 reigned on the first floor; all couples on the 3rd and the grandparents (Oma celebrated her 85th birthday) in the quiet room on the 2nd floor. Location great! Kitchen great! And thanks for answering our request for more chairs and tables!! Read more
Happy Birthday to Oma and congrats to your medalists! I am so happy to hear that this home was so well suited to your family’s needs. We appreciate you taking the time to write such an inspiring review (in more ways than one). It sounds like you all had a really fun time together. Thanks for letting us know about the chairs and tables; I am glad that we were able to accommodate your request so quickly.
Do give us a call whenever you all are ready to return to Topsail: 800-762-3961. We look forward to seeing you again!

The house was neat and clean and was able to house our family reunion! But even better - it was absolutely the best location to have ! Beautiful views!! And a lovely short walk to shopping, restaurants, and ice cream! Even now, a few days later, we are all missing the fabulous sight of the beach out the back door! Wish we were still there! Read more

Big House, Great Location, not a luxery rental

I will start out by saying I would stay here again because I have a young family with lots of kids and I never worried once that we would damage this house because it started in C- condition. The first thing I noticed as I entered the property was the large deck with private heated outdoor shower...nice! When I walked in the door I was taken back by the frat house quality furniture draped with slip covers. Next I see 2 holes in the dining room wall. The bottom level floor smelled like a basement and was cave like, but it really isn't a basement and actually accounts for some nice bedroom space. The lower level kitchen is awkward because it would be a great space for a rec room, but having a 2nd fridge is a great feature for a house that holds 20. As the first day passed I decided the house lacked maintenance, was decked with Wal-Mart grade fixtures, lacked conveniences like hand towel racks in the bathrooms, 2 rooms lack a dresser, and I don't think 1 of the kitchen drawers opened without lifting it off the cabinet doors below.
The beach was awesome, the location was a+, there was ample parking for 6 cars, and the living room/dining room/ kitchen space allowed for plenty of room for the whole family even on the day it rained. One of the upstairs bedrooms bathrooms was big enough to set up a portable crib so the baby could be put to sleep separate from the toddlers. The wireless internet provided enough bandwidth for everyone's devices. I mentioned all the shortcomings to get the attention of the owners and so anyone who can't overlook minor imperfections can book a different house. I had a great trip and would rent this house again the next time I need that much space. Read more
Thanks for your review and for the honest recommendation. I’m glad to hear that this home was so well suited to your family’s needs on so many fronts despite some “minor imperfections.” Had you informed us of issues with the kitchen drawer, we would have been glad to take care of that for you. We have passed your feedback along to the owner. Despite the fact that this home is one of the least expensive 8 bedroom homes on Topsail, the owner is always working to improve it. The holes in the dining room wall have been repaired. (This damage was done just prior to your stay, and unfortunately, the vendor was unable to get it repaired before your arrival. Rather than inconvenience you, we waited to repair the damage between renters.) We do apologize for the shortcomings you endured and we appreciate your patience and your patronage. Let us know when you all are ready to come back: 800-762-3961. We look forward to seeing you again.
