Description from the manager
Please note: This home does NOT give the first right of refusal for the corresponding week in the next year. There is a $600 non-refundable deposit due within 2 weeks of booking and that will lock in current year's rate. It’s a marvelous time for a Moondance with the sand, the sun, and blue skies. This 4200 square foot home has four levels, seven bedrooms and sleeps 22 yet the well designed floor plan never feels crowded. Hardwood and ceramic tile floors with beach glass medallions run throughout the house. With an elevator servicing every floor, spacious doorways and wide halls for ease of wheelchair use, this home is a blend of Hatteras and Cape Cod styles that evokes warmth. The many large patio doors and an amazing 1500 square feet of Trex decking beckon you outside where the ocean’s magic seems to whisper and hush. On the ground floor you will find two enclosed garages and an air conditioned/heated game room where you can gather for a great games night. A full sized refrigerator on this level can hold your beverages or provide extra food storage for large groups. Settle around the pub table and watch sports on the flat screen TV, or cheer on the participants at the pool table. Cabinets house board games, a regulation size ping pong table and a foosball table complete the indoor play area. Step out the back door to enjoy the heated pool with lounge, or practice your putt on the mini golf green. A poolside party area with Trex decking, chaise lounges, a dining table and chairs plus hammock swings ensure you can spend every minute. There is also a large hot/cold enclosed shower to rinse off the day’s beach activities. The well stocked kitchen is graced with granite countertops, a large refrigerator with icemaker and filtered, chilled water, another free standing ice maker, 2 dishwashers, a spectacular bar sink, a wine fridge and lots of cookware, bakeware and utensils, even a Belgian waffle maker! A huge kitchen island with plenty of extra seating for the cooks’ helpers makes meal preparation a breeze. The oceanfront dining room features a large, custom dining table that easily seats 12, while the sunroom boasts a game table that seats 4 and a comfortable cocktail area overlooking the beach and pool. Through the French double doors is the den that can serve as your office with a desk/work area, printer and fax machine, or as the 7th bedroom with 2 twin daybeds and a flat screen TV. Just down the hall there’s a king bedroom with private bath. On the front porch you’ll find rocking chairs where you can sit and watch the sun set or the boats cruising the Intracoastal Waterway. Step out back to the extra large deck which offers you a choice of sun or shade during the day, dining seating for 12, and an 8 person hot tub to watch the moonlight dance among the breakers at night. At one end is a luxurious daybed that is a terrific place for an afternoon nap yet it easily converts into a inviting conversation nook or a great place to wirelessly surf the web while listening to the real surf rolling ashore. From this main deck a stairway down one side gives direct access to the private pool while a private walkway from the other side leads to the beach just steps away. The walkway even has a seating area ideally placed to survey the beach, catch the sunset, keep an eye on the pool or watch the dolphins frolicking just off shore. After a day of sun and surf, curl up in the great room on the large sofa with chaise lounge and relax by the gas fireplace or select a movie from the DVD library to enjoy on the extra large 60” flat screen HDTV. Pop in a Bluray, hook up your IPOD or mobile device to the whole house stereo system and fill every floor with your favorite music.The third floor consists of 4 bedrooms all with private baths. There is a flat screen LCD TV, alarm clock, DVD player and a telephone in every room. Two of the bedrooms are oceanfront kings; one features a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, the other a romantic canopy bed. Both have access to an oceanfront deck with lots of high quality deck furniture and a comfortable porch swing. The sound side features a family bedroom with queen bed and twin daybed and a bunk room with pyramid and twin bunks. The washer/dryer is also on this level.The entire top floor is a fantabulous private master retreat. There is a wet bar complete with a sink, mini refrigerator, coffee pot and microwave. There is also a large flat screen LCD television with DVD and separate volume control for the whole house audio. Through the arched doorway is a separate sitting area where you will find a glass writing desk, a queen sofa sleeper and a comfortable chaise lounge where you can enjoy your morning coffee. The magnificently tiled bathroom has a Jacuzzi spa tub with separate 2 person shower and double glass bowl sinks. You also have your choice of private decks; ocean side or sound side. But the best aspect is the spectacular view from the oceanfront, king bed; go to sleep with the moonlight dancing on the waves, wake up to the dolphins playing in the surf.

We were very pleased with all "Moondance"offered our family of 17. Plenty of room to spread out and cozy spots to be together. The game room, pool, and putting green were amenities we all enjoyed. The ocean was at our doorstep and was spectacular. We played in the sand, rode the waves, and walked the beach.
It was a wonderful way to celebrate our 45 wedding anniversary.

We had to submit our family to a stove that constantly beeped whenever it was turned on at the breaker box. We could not use the oven until Friday night - the owner did try very hard to correct this problem, but when you pay this amount of money for a rental and have to be annoyed as we were everytime you wanted to cook anything, it was very distressing. The home is beautifully furnished - The elevator was a good feature for us this year.

Our family all 19 of us ages 3yr to 84yr, enjoyed a very special time together at Moondance . The home is well layed out with seating, dining area. Ample room for several cooks in the kitchen . We had such a feeling of togetherness without feeling crowded whether on the spacious deck or inside with meal prep. The views are soul pleasing from most every level. The heated pool was a huge hit. We appreciates how well stocked on pool toys, lounge chairs, multiple games, pool table foosball, there is truly something for everyone! The owner Leona is very gracious and helpful and available for questions you truly feel she is an advocate for you to enjoy the best experience possible. We highly recommend creating your family memories and gathering in such a wonderful home.

This home was absolutely wonderful even though it had been severely mistreated the week prior to our visit. We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and 5 more July family birthdays with our entire clan. Talking with the owner helped mitigate the few problems we encountered, and we appreciated her involvement. Our check-in and check-out went smoothly because of the organization of the very professional staff. We would definitely use Treasure Realty again.
"Personal touch and extra care made the home delightful vacation"

The owners of this property made an effort to communicate directly with us with a phone call while we were there to be sure everything was in working order. The property was very clean and the location perfect for us and our seventeen guests. The pool was ideal for younger guests who were not ready from prime body surfing waves. The grill was clean and working! We have been to Topsail before and this was by far the best kept home we have stayed in.

we drove in the car for eleven hours then had to sit on the front entrance for 45 minutes in the hot sun because your office gave us the wrong key. phone call, then drive back to your office for correct key. the home was excellent, exactly as described. perfect for large family. clean, uncrowded beach. enjoyed the USS North Carolina battleship. the turtle sanctuary was a long wait in line. the boy that cleaned our pool was super good, knows his job. good, lasting memories.

We have stayed in this unit for the last 3 years...and again this august. We have a 4 year old...a number of teen agers...and even some seniors. The elevator has been great and everyone loves the pool. Except for one problem several years ago...and resolved OK...no problems other than the internet which is a bit slow. The unit seems to be maintained well...which is important to the family. As long as the unit is updated and maintained well, we will continue to return. We have been coming down to this area for 16 years...and hope to continue.

House is beautiful. Loved the location. Appreciated the elevator for
those in our family who were unable to do the stairs. The pool was wonderful with floats for the children. Really liked the open kitchen
living area. Loved the views from the windows & decks on each floor.
It was one of our best vacations ever.
