A DELAY IN TIME went on the rental market in 2011 after being made our personal home for the previous four years. If you are looking for a place with views of Topsail sound and views of the ocean then this is the house you want. This second row ocean and sound home is located on a very nice/quiet cul-de-sac where only a dozen other homes are located. Perfect for children and pets!
.... Life is GOOD at the BEACH!!!.... SEIZE THE DAY....
PRIVATE beach access is less than a 3 minute walk. We will provide you with a beach cart, boogie boards and beach chairs as you work on your tan! There are decks off of ALL bedrooms and family room so you can enjoy all the sound and ocean views! Top Floor has new carpet in bedrooms and ceramic tile in the bathroom. There are two-three bedrooms on the top floor. One bedroom has great sound views, sliding glass doors leading onto a deck and a King size bed. The other 1-2 bedrooms have ocean views, a queen size bed with flat screen TV on the wall along with another area off this bedroom with a large closet, ocean views and 2 twin beds. Perfect for you to keep an eye on the little ones. We created a large bedroom when living in the house out of 2 bedrooms. Both of these rooms have ocean views with sliding glass doors leading out onto decks.
Downstairs you have a large living area with TV, stereo, great furniture, sleeper sofa, hardwood floors, open kitchen with bar seating, breakfast area with table, dining room with table for 6, 18' tile, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, bedroom with Iron double bed, large bathroom with ceramic tile. Kitchen is fully stocked with large side by side fridge, dishwasher, stove, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker and all of the kitchen dishes, utensils you will need plus wine glasses for those special moments.
Ground level has outdoor hot/cold shower, parking under the home for 3 cars, parking in the yard for another 3 cars and great safe area in the yard for kids to play. Cul De Sac that has very little traffic.
Marina is less than 1.5 miles, fantastic restaurants and shopping are a short walk (less than a mile), with the beach and sound access only a short distance away! This end of Topsail Island is beautiful!!! Walking and biking paths, walk around the point and watch the sunset while you play in tidal pools. During the summer months Loggerhead Turtles lay eggs along the shore that hatch during the warm summer nights. Watch Dolphins play in the surf or go fishing which is outstanding. Go kayaking in the sound, take your family for a sunset cruise on 'The Belle of Topsail', boogie boarding in the ocean or book yourself a deep sea fishing trip and catch your dinner.
We just decided to rent the house and decided not to use a rental agency so we could pass the savings along to your family. We've priced the home hundreds of dollars less than in previous years but with no commission, I can pass these savings on to you. Everyone is trying to save money and this is one of the best deals on Topsail Beach-- Please make this comfortable beach home yours for a week or a month. Life is short. CARPE DIEM...Seize the day my friends!!! Life is Short. IF YOU ARE NEEDING 2 HOUSES THIS SPRING OR FALL FOR A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE THEN WE HAVE 2 HOUSES WITHIN 200 FEET OF EACH OTHER SO YOU COULD SLEEP A TOTAL OF 18 PEOPLE WITH EASE. THIS IS IDEAL FOR FAMILY REUNIONS, EXTENDED FAMILY GET TOGETHERS. BEACH MUSIC #291445 AND A DELAY IN TIME #335963 MIGHT BE GREAT FOR YOU.

About the owner: When my family gets away to 'A DELAY IN TIME', it is our 'Piece of Paradise'. Whether we are sitting on the deck, laughing with friends, enjoying the views, walking on the beach, riding our bikes or just chillin' on the beach...it allows us to escape the stresses of life. Topsail Beach is a wonderful place for vacations. We love the sea birds and the slow, peaceful pace that Topsail offers. You can have Myrtle Beach, Outer Banks, Carolina/Kure beaches, Wrightsville Beach... We'll take Topsail Island.
Why the Owner Chose Topsail Beach: After spending many years at Wrightsville Beach and living less than 10 miles away we got tired of dealing with the traffic, attitudes and charges for parking your car. We could almost buy a very nice meal for what it cost us to park for a day. We fell in LOVE with Topsail and once you vacation here you will fall in love also. If you vacation here every year then you know what we mean. A DeLay In Time is on a quiet cul-de-sac which is ideal for your children or your pets. We loved the convenience to the ocean and everywhere on the island.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love our decks. During the summer this is where we live if not on the beach. We enjoy sitting out with the sun in our face, laughing, talking and hearing the birds. We also love our kitchen which is great for cooking...even though...most people don't want to cook when on vacation. You will still cook a meal or two while down so you just as well enjoy it. Buy some steaks, burgers or seafood...throw some on the gas grill or just cook inside. Some of the best food you can get is on the island.
