Description from owner

Description

Quiet and cozy with morning sun on the ocean front balcony! If you are looking for the best ocean view on the island, up close and personal, and a quiet, peaceful setting, you have found it. In addition to year-round daily dolphin sightings, this year we have seen humpback whales, too, (December and January).

Renovated again in 2019, this top floor ocean-facing beach condo is suitable for a romantic getaway or for a small family beach vacation at an affordable rate. The best feature? A beautiful ocean view from a covered balcony to sit and watch the dolphins play.

This third floor (walk-up) at building 5 of Topsail Reef is a one bedroom air conditioned unit and includes a queen bed, mounted TV, bathroom with combo tub/shower, built in bunks for children or smaller people, and a well appointed kitchen, fridge with ice-maker, microwave, stove, coffee maker, toaster, blender, flatware, utensils, cookware suitable for simple meal preparation. The living room is equipped with a loveseat and chairs, 32" flat screen TV and DVD player. There is a small dinette with chairs, although if you are like us, you will prefer to dine on the balcony.

North Topsail Island is a quiet, family community with beautiful bluish green waters and uncrowded, unspoiled beaches, the perfect place for kicking back and enjoying nature. Enjoy nature walks that include open ocean on one side and marsh land with estuaries on the other. Though quietly tucked away from the beaten path, it's not far from shopping, dining, restaurants, a spa and a country club for those who want to play golf. Topsail is a sanctuary and boasts a turtle rehabilitation center in nearby Surf City. Wilmington is only 20 miles away for great sight seeing, restaurants, and shopping.

You only need to bring your own bed linens, towels and a bathing suit! There are coin operated laundry facilities on-site, as well as two grill areas, with tennis courts and basketball across the street.

**Please Note - recent beach erosion, there is sometimes limited beach for sunbathing DIRECTLY in front of the unit's sandbags for a FEW HOURS EACH DAY during high tide, however, beach is still very accessible with private access from building. Guests have not reported this to be a problem for them.

We hope you enjoy your stay. Please feel free to email me with any questions.

“Beach Getaway”

This place is perfect! Updated and right on the ocean with an amazing view. However, there is not much beach to put chairs down and sit. You can sit for only 2-3 hours in the mid-morning. This did not… More

Response from the owner Nicole, so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future! We are a barrier island that takes a beating every hurricane season and the shoreline is constantly changing ... we are being told there will be a "beach renourishment" program this fall. Most of our guests, like you, are okay with "going with the flow" for the changing high and low tides of our beach. Thank you again for the great review and have a great summer!

Response from the owner Darcy, I am so sorry for inconveniences you suffered as we recover from Hurricane Florence. Topsail Island suffered extensive damage last year and repairs are underway now and should be completed in the next two months. The eight building repair schedule has been difficult to pinpoint exactly which units are impacted and when, and has been subject to change (all being handled by my HOA), which is why prior to your visit I made you aware of this possibility with an option to cancel or reschedule at no penalty. Nonetheless, it's important to me that my guests leave happy and I'd like to invite you back to experience a better stay once the renovation is over. Under normal circumstances, Topsail truly is magical.

“Great time at the beach!”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2018

Loved being right on the beach. Wish we had more comfortable furniture though. The condo did not have enough room for four people.

Response from the owner Diane, thanks for reviewing us and we're glad you had a good time. The condo is a one bedroom and is ideal for two guests, although it will sleep four. Most of our bookings are for two guests, although the unit does have hallway bunks ideal for kids or smaller folks. For reasons you described we try to steer parties of four to a larger unit, however we were unaware that you HAD four in your party, as your booking stated two. In any event, we are glad that overall you enjoyed your stay and if we can accommodate you in the future, please get in touch. Thanks again!

Response from the owner Thank you for the great review. Yes, the shoreline keeps changing and is different every time we visit it seems. We currently have a tidal pool directly in front of the condo with a sandbar at low tide. We are fortunate that the beach is beautiful, clean and still easily accessible. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our 2nd home and we look forward to welcoming you back again. Have a great summer!
