North Topsail Beach house description

Answer to Prayer is an airy ocean front home that is just the ticket for enjoying Topsail Island up close and in style.

The house accommodates up to 10 guests with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Answer to Prayer is located in North Topsail Beach just over the High Rise Bridge to the island and a short drive to downtown Surf City for shopping and dining. A pet friendly, smoke free refuge for you, your family and friends is waiting.

You'll love the mornings. We like to get up early with a steaming cup of coffee and sit out on the deck. It's so quiet, but the beach is waking up. The waves crash on the shore, sea gulls gawk at one another.

A flock of pelicans come 'floating' on the winds as they cruise the beach looking for breakfast. The morning sun warms us up.

My husband decides he wants to go for a ride on his bike. He heads south on the bike shoulder lane waving at the friendly islanders driving in the early morning. After a good run to the southern part of the island, he gets off at the point to smell the jasmine and salt air.

As he heads back, he stops at Seas the Day, a beach house owned by a friend of ours in Surf City. We have friends staying there who have come to Topsail Island the same week as us. After he greets them and visits for a while, he invites them to the barbeque we are planning that night.

While he is riding on his bike, I decide I will take a quick dip and swim a little. The water is chilly at first, but then the Caribbean kissed waters seem to warm up. After a workout, I climb back on the beach and then to take a shower. I decide that I will lay in the sun later. But first I want to do a little shopping at this absolutely darling clothes shop in Surf City.

I could go on and on about how much you'll enjoy Answer to Prayer, but I invite you to come and make your own vacation.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Roger and Darlene are from Hilliard, Ohio a suburb of Columbus. Roger is originally from California and Darlene is originally from Indiana. Growing up without a North Carolina beach. We love Topsail Island. With the stress of life it is great to get away with friends and family. We have two grown children who also enjoy joining us at the beach.

                  Why the Owner Chose North Topsail Beach:
                  After sending our daughter off to school at UNCWilmington in the fall of 2005, we decided to look for a vacation rental in the area. Really just out of curiosity. Being from Ohio this beach is a real treat and being an architect I wanted a house that was architecturally exciting. One of our dear friends had purchased a house and a duplex and told us about Topsail Island,and how quiet and not crowded it was. Well I feel in love with 'Answer to Prayer' in September when I came up for a parents weekend. We waited until March to make an offer and it was still on the market ( in 2005 things were moving a lot faster). We really felt our prayer had been answered when price was reduced, we both were in agreement and the house was available. We have had fun painting and decorating and relaxing with our friends on the deck. Many of our families who stay come back year after year, treat the house as it was their own and call it home. We hope you will enjoy our home too. i hope you will too.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is kid friendly with gates for the stairs going down to the beach and to the driveway. Also suitable for keeping dogs on the deck. We provide a high chair and games and DVDs. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan as well as A/C for upstairs and down. Turtle watching is also quite common in this section of North Topsail Beach.
