A thirty second walk out the condo door and you're standing on one of the most beautiful beaches in North Carolina! This 537 square foot oceanfront 1st floor condo offers incredible beach front views of North Topsail Beach, NC. The same views can be seen directly from the private balcony, and even while preparing food in the kitchen. Park in front of the building, travel across the garden walkway, go up five decking stairs, turn to the left, and you'll see the door to this adorable unit. As you enter, to the right a long hall with two bunks will be your first view. Look to the left and walk through the door, and you'll be in the private cozy bedroom. At the end of the hall you'll find the living room and full kitchen.
Go out the sliding doors, and you'll be on the balcony with two Adirondack chairs with a full view of the beach and ocean. If the building was 300 feet closer, you'd be able to dive off the balcony into the ocean. This beautiful beach and a room for six guests make this condo a dream for families and couples alike on a budget who wants the beach front access! Topsail Reef features 8 condominiums with 30 units each. This condo features a tennis court and easy access to the beach. The interior was decorated by the prior owners, but has reminders all around to relax. With classic light blue, white, and tan colors, you'll have no problems getting into beach living. This unit contains one bathroom with a tub/shower. The bedroom has a super comfortable new queen bed, and the living room features a pull-out air/coil queen bed which can be just as comfortable as a standard bed. The bunks are two singles in the hallway and are ideal for children up to age twelve.
North Topsail Beach, the beach you'll be viewing while eating breakfast every morning is one of those world renowned "untouched" beaches of North Carolina. Being at the end or northern end of north topsail beach, this unit offers the wonderful option of enjoying both the beach, and with taking a ten minute walk north, will take you to outstanding views and access to the ocean sound just around the corner. Wake up early, and the sunrise coming up over the Atlantic Ocean will absolutely take your breathe away.
For those interested in "theme park" type action and entertainment, the Sweet Escape is NOT the place for you. This place is ideal for couples just wanting to enjoy being together, sitting on the beach, wading/body surfing in the ocean, and reading the novel they've never gotten around to reading. For those who hate to cook in their every day life, you might find it's more enjoyable when you can view the ocean while preparing food. In addition, for some reason, everything tastes fantastic after you've been out on the beach all day, so anything you make will be wonderful! For those wanting to skip the home cooked meals and dinner dishes to dine out, head down the road to Surf City, or Sneads Ferry about ten to fifteen minutes away and you'll have access to fresh sea food and small town restaurants.
Okay, I'm here, now what? Well, this beach is magical for those willing to let go. Take time to re-connect with nature and go for a walk up north on the beach. Play with your children and allow them to choose the activity. You might find that simply collecting sea shells will be one of those moments they'll remember for a lifetime. Watch how the ocean "plays" with your children and allow them opportunities to see the natural beauty of beaches. Choose a type of sea shell and collect it or a type/shape/size of a rock and see how many you can find. Grab a book, and head out for time to read and re-connect with entertainment in your mind. Grab a body surf board, and head out to the mild waves to see if you can ride them, or on a calm day, just use the board to bob on the water.
Our welcome packet and tips and tricks will help you get the most out of your trip, but just remember, each time you go, you'll be better prepared to enjoy this place to its fullest. Just like the first time you go to a yoga class is not as good as the twentieth, so is going to the Sweet Escape each time a sweeter escape.

“I will not stay here again. Beach is great but this unit needs HELP.”
Left on 08/19/2014 for a stay in August 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 19, 2014Stayed Aug 2014
We were very pleased with the nature and beautiful beaches and it being quiet . But this unit needs a lot of help. Duplexes don't work in bathroom Toilet is a night mare about flushing. Have to put your hand in back every time you flush. It was clean, the unit but the porch was a mess, the sofa is impossible to set on, a dog could not set comfortable on it, we had to set on cloth beach chairs whole time except when at table. The sliding door had no lock not even a stricker plate only a broom stick to close it. TV reception is so so. The CD player had not cords and doubt it would work anyway.. Little one in bedroom you have to set on top of to hear so we could not listen to music. Door was very very difficult to open with key. Emily is very nice but we wont be back. Of all the places on this beach from the road this area looks like low rent district. Please check these places you rent out closer than we did spending a couple hundred dollars more just might be worth it. Oh yes coffee pot might have cost 10 dollars and it takes 25 mins. to make a pot of coffee. And please have house keeping take a min to clean out the kitchen and straighten up cabinets. And if there is a water filter thing here I have yet to find it.
Sorry for all the negitive but we had a terrible week as far as comfort. If you 68 years old you don't like moving a dresser just to plug up a curling iron or hair dryer. And if your 69 with a back problem you would think for almost 1000.00 for a week stay there would be something comfortable to set on. OH, one more thing unless your a heavy sleeper every time you turn over in bed it is so noisey it will wake you up. Ron and Karen Hunter
I'm sorry you had such an unpleasant stay at The Sweet Escape. Our repair technician has verified that the toilet is functional and simply may need the user to hold down the flush a tiny bit longer than usual, but to contact him if any additional problems come up as always. We had the toilet serviced during your stay within 6 hours of your complaint. So sorry about the couch, it's been wonderful for our guests for many years, and I'm thankful you brought it to my attention that it was broken. We have a new couch scheduled for delivery 9/4. As always I take pride in being as responsive as I can to each of my guests concerns and responding promptly to concerns just as many reviews have given me since I started renting The Sweet Escape the fall of 2007.
