Surf City house description

Topsail Island is a family oriented area... with tons of family activities! Kayaking on the sound, parasailing, windsurfing, bicycle lanes, and sidewalks for walking and running... A wonderful beach to escape to. Quiet, calming to the soul, as if you have your own personal island to retreat to!

About our home: Sparrow's Beach Nest is located just five blocks south of the stoplight once arriving on the island. This allows you enough distance not be in the midst of the traffic, yet you are able to walk to restaurants, coffee shops, the ice cream shoppe, the grocery store and the pier, if fishing is on your mind!

Breathtaking views from the third floor/primary living area with a very large back deck full of comfortable lounging chairs, rocking chairs and a table for snacking or eating outside. The second story back deck is covered and has several adirondacks, several rocking chairs and two swings allowing for the comfort of the shade, amazing views of the ocean all while watching your family on the beach below. Stairs on the back-side of the deck carry you down to the sandy beach...

The primary living area features the kitchen, a seated bar area(4), a large dining table for family gatherings (8) along with a smaller dining table (6). The family room has DVD, VHS and expanded cable. Not that you'll be inside to enjoy the TV too often!

The kitchen is fully stocked - just like cooking at home! And, you will find that we have included two high-chairs and two booster seats in the dining area for those with young ones...

A full-bath is located on the third floor. We have a queen bedroom and a crib, that makes sleeping convenient for those wanting the main floor to themselves late at night! (and for those needing to keep a close eye on their young baby!)

The second level houses two master suites with doors opening onto the back deck. A sneak peak of the ocean and several rocking chairs await your visit... A third king size bed and a bunk/trundle bed with a full mattress and two twin mattresses are also found on this floor and share yet another full bath.

Another Master/King bedroom is located on the ground floor with a private bath... This is located on the backside of the first level and there is a exit door for a quick beach escape!

Just outside the exit door is the outdoor shower and changing room. We have parking for up to four cars in our driveway with public parking close by for any additional cars or friends that may visit.

Sheets, pillow cases and kitchen wash rags and towels can be included with this rental.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: Rusty and I live dead center between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill. We love spending time on Topsail Island with our family! Just a 2.5 hour drive door-to-door...

              Why the Owner Chose Surf City:
              We had been vacationing and visiting with friends on Topsail for years. We found a house we loved and took the plunge! We just love the being on S Shore Drive, the second street with slower trafffic, that enables you to walk to and from the grocery store, the restaurants and the pier.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Relaxing... great nieghbors... Our home away from home!
