You don’t want to miss this rental house waiting for you to come and visit. If you love fine living and long walks on the beach, this is the right place for you. Conveniently located in the heart of Surf City close to restaurants and shopping but far enough away to be a quiet area to get away. This oceanfront property that has 5 bedrooms and sleeps 11 people with 4 full baths is a perfect place for a large family or a few families to come and stay. (2 king, 4 single, 1 daybed, 1 bunk bed) This house offers a fireplace in the main living area fully decorated with Ethan Allen furniture, plus a speaker/intercom sound system (radio, multi dis...c CD changer) that pipes in music throughout the house. Let’s begin on the first floor which presents itself in the shape of an octagon. There are 2 master bedrooms that include: Ethan Allen king size beds, private bathrooms with state of the art glass shower doors, ceramic tile and granite counter tops. Each of the master bedrooms has a sliding glass door which leads to a covered deck that provides you with a great view as if you were on a cruise ship. Each master has a fan and cable T.V. with a DVD/VCR player. The other two bedrooms on this floor have 2 single Ethan Allen beds, children’s guard rail and a ceiling fan in each room. These rooms share a full bathroom. There is a full size washer and dryer on this floor also for your convenience. The second floor offers a breathtaking view of the Atlantic. A large living area under a cathedral ceiling has a fireplace for your lounging convenience and an even bigger kitchen with all of the amenities (refrigerator, microwave, instant hot water, toaster, coffee maker, blender, mixer, fondue pot and a big fryer for all of the fish and shrimp you catch on your fishing trips). The dining area includes an Ethan Allen table that seats 6 with 2 leaves to add for more people, a high top table for 4 with 4 high level chairs and stools at the bar. This area also has a full view of the rolling ocean as you enjoy your meal and listen to the piped in beach music. The fifth bedroom and game room is on this level also. In this bedroom there is a bunk bed and a day bed, T.V. with DVD, game cube with games, game closet, and it connects to the full sized bathroom. This bedroom is a play area for younger kids. This house offers an enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water, picnic table, storage area with beach chairs, boogie boards. There are 2 huge decks with ample beach furniture for relaxing while you watch the kids on the beach. The covered deck is great for those grandparents who want to be out of the sun but still want to see their grandchildren at play in the sand. One of the most unique amenities of the house is the extra deck with built in seating and water hook up. This deck is attached to the other decks and is located at the top of the dune. You are right on the beach but don’t get a bit of sand between your toes. Come and see for yourself. Enjoy! Bedding: 2 kings, 4 twins, 1 bunk bed, 1 daybed. Wireless internet.

I cannot say enough about this beautiful beach home. It was just as it looked in the pictures. The view was breathtaking and the home so accommodating for our 8 adults and 2 teens. We had tons of room and it was very comfortable. The beach is only steps from the house! My only suggestion is to put a better curtain/shade on the sliding glass door in the green master. The light shines right through the bamboo shade, as well as everyone can see in! We had to put a blanket over the door, which then blocked our ocean view. That fixed would make the house perfect!! I will be coming back.
My whole family had an awesome experience at this house. It is so spacious and the view is breathtaking. We saw baby sea turtles and surfers and picked up beautiful shells. It really is a small piece of paradise. The house was really clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals. From young to old you will make precious memories at the house. We were here in March and had a blast. It was 65 today and gorgeous outside. We can't wait to return.
This was our second visit to Topsail Island. I have spent the past 30 years vacationing in Nags Head, NC. Last year my husband and I decided to try something different and visited Topsail. We loved it so much we were able to convince out entire family to change tradition and move the family trip to S. Shore Drive. Everyone had a magnificent time and commented on how enjoyable this vacation was for everyone ranging from 10 months to 65 years old. The house was wonderful, the fresh seafood was delicious, and the beach was amazing. You really felt like you were on your own private beach. It reminded us so much of how the OBX 20 years ago. The house was perfect. The upstairs kitchen was large enough for all of us to sit down and have family meals with an amazing view. The kids had their own room furnished with toys. The adults shared the 2nd level and each couple had a room. The decks were amazing and the grandparents loved watching the kids play in the comfort of shade. I highly recommend this vacation to large families ready for fun and relaxation. The only request I would make is that the realty company allow you drop off the key at a more convenient location on the island. The office was not close to the house which made it difficult for pick up and drop off
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house! It's very comfortable and great for a large family. The bunk room for the kids was perfect, and there was plenty of room for us all (4 couples and 4 kids). Our only complaint was that there were some bugs in the house -- they probably need to work on the pest control. Other than that, we loved the house and I would certainly go back again! Read more
Thanks for your review of this lovely home. I am pleased to hear that it was so well suited to your family’s needs. I am sorry about the bugs. Most of the homes on the island are treated regularly, but occasionally the palmetto bugs (native to Topsail) that live in the dunes can find ways in (usually through doors/windows that are left open or on wet clothes or other items left outside and then brought inside). Whatever the case, we are always glad to call an exterminator for you if this is a problem. Just let us know. Please let us know how we can assist you further: 800-762-3961.
Fun on the beach!

This is a great house right on the beach for a couple of small families or one big one.
I understand that being an oceanfront home presents its problems. We actually stayed in this particular house twice. I really like the house, the layout, and the furnishings. All of these things were very nice. However, we had the same problem both times we stayed at this house (3 years apart). There were roaches and very large waterbugs in this house. They were very visible both times we stayed there. I did call to report it, and it was explained that routine maintenance (such as exterminators) was performed on that house and should take care of it. However, it was very unnerving when these creatures would scale the walls behind the bed. One was even waiting on a toothbrush in the morning. Having had this problem twice in this house, I think the underlying issue needs to be resolved. There is obviously either easy access for these pests, or an infestation. For this reason alone, I wouldn't stay here again. It's a shame, though...because it's a beautiful home in a prime location! Read more
Thanks so much for your candid review. I am glad you enjoyed this house, but I am so sorry to hear about the issues you had back in 2010 with the bugs. It is true that these homes are treated to prevent bugs from coming inside, but sometimes they do find ways in. I hope whomever you spoke with offered to send an exterminator out to take care of that for you. We are always glad to send someone to administer extra treatments if necessary. Please accept my apologies for this unnerving inconvenience. I hope it didn't put too much of a damper on your stay. We will share your feedback with the owner, so he can have things checked out. Thanks for your feedback. Please let us know how we can assist you in planning future visits to Topsail: 800-762-3961.
