    Townhome Steps From the Beach, Newly Renovated, Quiet Neighborhood

    Beachfront vacation home for sun and fun
    Elegant ocean side, ocean view townhouse on quiet ocean front street walking distance to town and fine or casual dining or shopping. This is one of the most desirable locations on the island and the beaches are very clean and private. It is a fantastic place that is built on an ocean front lot yet has two duplexes built in front of it (so it is not ocean front...but as close as you can get and definitely the next best thing!!). Next to us is the beach emergency access for the fire department so that is what gives us the spectacular ocean views. This area can never be built on and we sit on our deck and enjoy the surf. You can actually see the waves from the living area, and from the kitchen while eating or cooking. You can even see the sun rise over the ocean while lying in the comfortable Simmons world class beauty rest mattress! Not only is it furnished for supreme comfort it is decorated to make you feel completely at ease and relaxed from the moment you walk in. We made this our home away from home and it is decorated that way. The high top resin deck chairs make sitting on the deck like sitting on a thrown. The view is breath taking. The property also is walking distance to town and sits on a private and secluded residential section of surf city. There are no other town houses around - just single family homes and it is a 25 mph road for only beach front homes so it is quiet and relaxing. The town house has its own private parking and beach access (no streets to cross of course because you are on an ocean front lot already). You just couldn't have a better location. This home is newly renovated for the 2018. It is tastefully decorated and features quality fixtures and flooring. There is a well appointed kitchen and comfortable furniture throughout the home. Because we know a good vacation can only be good if you can get a good nights sleep, we feature premium bedding with Simmons World Class Beautyrest mattress on the King Size master bed and also on the two full size beds in the second bedroom. The upper bunk twin beds is a quality Serta mattresses. The home is equipped with comfort height 18 toilets and custom lighting. Bed linens are included at no extra charge (many units would charge you an additional fee of approx ~$25 per bed for this) [note that the mattresses are very thick and would require deep pocket sheets if you choose to bring your own]. Departure cleaning is also included (many units charge you an additional $90 for this). The home has WiFi (wireless internet), 55' LCD HD TV with Blue Ray DVD, and premium sound system. Bedrooms also have cable LCD Flat screen TVs. Sleeping accommodations are one king, and one twin over full bunk, one full. Topsail is a great place for families and fun. Enjoy quiet relaxation of the ocean breeze and watching the surf from the comfy high top resin deck chairs or a moonlight walk on the beach. The home has a private access to the beach directly in front of your door. This access is for town homes only. Enjoy watching the children play on the beach right from your deck or fish off the beaches right in front of the town house. You can also walk up to the Surf City Pier to see what's biting. Enjoy walking for literally miles on clean white beaches looking for prehistoric sharks teeth (Topsail is one of the few area on the east coast where they are easily found) or gather shells or 'sea beans' (small polished pebbles) for you collection. Visit the famous Sea Turtle Hospital here on the Island (see link on other page) or stop at one of our local shops and pick up some fresh home made fudge, pies or or seafood.

      We were not that happy with this property. The unit was clean upon arrival. The main bathroom is terrible outdated. (that is probably the reason for no photo. The 1/2 bath is so small that you can sit on the toilet and wash your hands without getting up. While the unit is supplied with kitchen utensils, cabinets are such as mess items are hard to find. The unit is located in the middle of 2 public

      4/5 Good

        Great place

        This property is in a great location. Very close beach access and can see ocean from the balcony. Bedding very comfortable. The only complaint would be that there was sand everywhere from the previous occupants and food/noodles on the kitchen floor. We also had to put away the dishwasher when we arrived. The cleaning crew needs to step it up a bit. Ted is great to rent from and very responsive to all questions. Overall great place to stay.

        5/5 Excellent

          Can’t wait to come back, A+ rental and location

          My wife, 6 month old, dog and I spent an amazing week in Surf City. The location is perfect. You are steps from the beach so no need to lug your beach gear far or get in your car to get to the beach. We walked to a couple of places for take-out all of which were only a couple of blocks away. The apartment was quiet and comfy. My 6 month old had no issues sleeping nor did the grownups. The house has everything you need to make meals and relax during your stay. I miss drinking coffee on the deck watching the waves crash and evening walks on the beach. Ted was a great communicator and made sure you had everything you need for the week. Check-in is at 1pm which is unreal. We can’t wait to come back.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great View and Location!

            We absolutely loved our time here during the week of the 4th! The proximity to the beach was perfect for us and our toddler. We could play all morning, come in for lunch and nap and then head back out that afternoon and evening. The view from our deck was gorgeous as well! It was perfect for morning coffee and late evening conversation. It was nice to be walking distance to several places we wanted to enjoy, but this is a very busy spot on the weekends due to being right between two public accesses. Get out there early and get your spot if you need a lot of space! We also had the enjoyment of great “neighbors” on each side of us and couldn’t have had a better trip. My daughter is already wanting to go back and I hope we get to stay here again in the future!

            5/5 Excellent

              Get away and visit with son

              Everything was perfect. Steps to the ocean, beautiful and convenient. I’ll try to book the same property for our next visit.
