Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: We are the original owners of this oceanfront home, and we have watched our children grow up here. We take great joy in knowing that the Pelican Palace has become the home away from home for many of our guests. Many of Pelican Palace family have been with us for over 5 years.
Why the Owner Chose Surf City: Our family began vacationing on Topsail Island in 1989. We loved it's quiet uncrowded beaches and treasured our times there with friends and family. We found that Surf City, on the Island of Topsail, was the perfect location for our family retreats/vacations. Unlike other Atlantic beach towns, Topsail is quiet and unassuming, it's residents are gracious and friendly. You can't top its 26 miles of pristine sandy beaches. With that in mind, we decided to make Surf City our home away from home. With our years of rental experiences we are passionate about making the Pelican Palace not just a rental property, but a home. We chose our exact location-just 1.5 miles from the center of town- because it was convenient and yet far enough away to be private and quiet. Oceanfront was a must so we could enjoy the Spectacular Ocean Views year round!
Create your own memories at the Pelican Palace.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The Pelican Palace, in Surf City, is in the center of Topsail Island, This provides it with the most convenient access to the heart of town as well as off-island shopping and activities. We are only 1 1/2 miles south of the town center with it's shopping and dining. We love to take walks to the pier in the evening, or ride our bikes down to the Quarter Moon Bookstore for coffee and a cinnamon bun in the morning. The loggerhead turtle has become a family mascot and we have been blessed with witnessing a nest being made as well as several hatchings. It is awe inspiring to see hundreds of little turtles swarm to the sea. We have enjoyed watching Surf City grow while it still maintains its quiet southern charm.
From sunrise to sunset your days will be filled with joy, relaxation and fun.
We hope you take the opportunity to share some of these special times with your family and friends at the Pelican Palace.
