North Topsail Beach house description

A Gorgeous Beach Duplex That is Pet-Friendly. You will not believe such a beautiful house allows your pet, but we find that our guests at A Breath of Fresh Aire have been very conscientious about their four legged family members.

NOW MY WIFE SAYS I TALK TOO MUCH. She told me to shut up and let our guests tell the story. So here they go:

'Our family can't wait until July this year - we have stayed at Amazing Grace for the last three years - this year we will stay at Breath of Fresh Air - A wonderful ocean-front duplex - very nice and owner is a delight to deal with. A great deal here at Topsail!!!'
Tim & Carol, Alexandria, Va

'Our humans brought us to watch them unwind at this wonderful house on the beach. We got long walks on the water's edge and saw turtle nests and lots of crabs and dolphins. We also got peaceful naps to the sound of the surf. We had such a good time watching our humans uncoil and become fun companions that we did not want it to end. Thanks for making us feel like puppies again.'
Your 4-pawed buddies, Kapi and Rufus

'Our family has stayed at A Breath of Fresh Aire about 4 times over the past 3 years. We obviously LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!! We keep coming back! It's always clean and comfortable, and Steve the owner is a pleasure to deal with. It has everything we need and absolutely Beautiful views! And it's on a great section of the island too.'
Chrissy, Atlanta, Ga

'A Breath of Fresh Aire is just that... what a wonderful week of sun and fun on TopSail island, NC. We couldn't have been more impressed with this wonderful ocean-front home. It is so rare to find a beach home vacation rental that not only has all the amenities of home, but accepts pets too! We'll definitely be back.'
Scott & Carolee, Wake Foest, NC

And it goes on and on. Our guests love the place and you will too.

Imagine shrimp on the grill, kids on the beach, and a cold beverage in your hand as you sit on the deck above the dunes. The wide beach invites you to stay all day long.

A Breath of Fresh Aire is BEACH FRONT. It is not a piano lot, or a view between two houses, or in a condominium complex. It is a real OCEANFRONT house. Sit on the beach or sit on a marvelous deck just a few feet away from the crashing waves.

Do you like to bike or run? There is a bike shoulder on the main road the entire way from the north to south. The island is like 22 miles long, so you can get a good work out.

You can even bike for fun (like I do). Recently I rode my bike to the south end, and the smell of Jasmin and ocean air was unbelievable. I stopped on the far south point of the island and walked around the beach on the undeveloped point. I then rode back to Topsail Beach city hall and said hi to the ladies who worked there. (They had kindly sent me an invitation to pay real estate tax in their city even though my house is not in their city. I graciously declined :-) but they were very pleasant!) I then rode back to Surf City and promptly bought an ice cream cone at DQ just to make sure I hadn't burnt off too many calories, then leisurely rode back to the beach house.

Believe me, this place is fun.

And I haven't even told you about Giligan's, just before the bridge on the mainland side and it's hilarious karaoke nights, or about Sears Landing and its award winning clam chowder made with sherry, or Indigo Marsh - the best restaurant overlooking the sound that you will ever find. Oh, and how about the fresh fish market (I mean right off the boat) behind the Crab Pot where you can get shrimp, flounder, shark or whatever they have been catching and take it back and grill it.

Or you can play 18 holes at Coastal Carolina's only four-star golf course, North Shore Golf and Ocean Club (as per Golf Digest). Perhaps you would like to deep sea or surf fish...or maybe spend an hour with your son or daughter fishing off the sound dock just steps from your beachfront villa. And did we mention riding jet skis on the nearby sound?

CAN YOU GUESS WHY WE HAVE SO MANY REPEAT GUESTS?

Well, one of our repeat guests told us:

'Delightful Cottage and good location. Our golden loved the beach. I would not hesitate to rent this cottage again. The owner, Steve, made everything simple and straightforward. We made some great memories there. Thanks!!'
Linda O, Chester, Va
