North Topsail Beach house description

Enjoy the best of both worlds. Playground for adults and children. You can enjoy all the activities associated with sound access including kayaking, canoeing,crabbing, (crab traps available), and clamming,etc. The house has a pier on a large marsh bay area that is safe boating for children. The inland waterway is several hundred yards away and while accessible, it is heavily traveled by yachts. Yachts, which are a pleasure to watch and to watch out for while boating. Our bay area averages a depth of 3 ft. which makes it ideal for the young ones. Many variety of birds including osprey, great herons, egrets, pelicans are in attendance at all times. Watch them from the back deck or while relaxing in the hot tub.
On the ocean side, there is walkover to the beach. No walking a good distance to locate a way to get to/on the beach. The beach is never crowded even on holiday weekends. The beach is a jewel waiting to be discovered.
A fully gourment style kitchen with modern Fisher/Paykel appliances is something to be enjoyed and enhanced with 180 degree views of ocean and sound. The spacious kitchen also allows many helping hands to make the experience much easier on the main chef.
Totally remodeled in 2006 to upgrade and provide us with the 'bells and whistles we wanted in a dream house at the beach. The house is really divided into two sections, one for the younger ones to enjoy and escape to watch tv, movies, and video games and one for the adults to sit and relax.


Keywords: Open style kitchen, family room, and dining room afford 360 views of ocean and intracoastal waterway. Near 4 star golf course.

                            We had family join us from NY and California for a great week of fun. Sometimes it is hard to accommodate a large group but this was the perfect choice! The location and house were perfect, something for everyone to do. My personal favorite was taking out the kayaks. There was also the crabbing, fishing, ocean, hot tub, playing cards and even a small yard to play ladder ball in. I would definitely recommend this home for the perfect beach vacation. We even got to see the baby sea turtles hatch and make there way to the ocean!! Thank you so much for sharing your home!!

                            Owner response: Thank you for your great review. It does make us happy to see families enjoy our home, beach, and sound. We are glad you were able to see why we spent 30 years on the beach.

                            Rented for a family vacation involving grandparents, cousins and siblings, this house had it all. Great floor plan, incredible views, full kitchen and a hot tub and kayaks. The owners were nice to deal with and generous with their things. Beds were very comfortable, master bathroom shower was a wonderful luxury. TV's in almost all the rooms with cable not that it's needed, to many outside choice to participate in. Beach across the street and deck and dock with sound view made it hard to choose where to go. Sunset in the hot tub was even too much for the grandparents to resist. Quiet location, no crowds on the beach and decent shelling. As another reviewer said, I hate to rate it so high as it will become too popular. A great rental you won't regret, good for all ages with or without kids.

                            What a fabulous retreat. Our family met here to await the return of our son from his deployment in Afghanistan. Great location, nice amenities and wonderful owners. We had 10 days of enjoyment spent on the beach, out on the sound kayaking, fishing and crabbing and just hanging out cooking and relaxing. Nice hot tub to help us relax as we kept receiving delays on our sons return! Originally we were scheduled for a 7 day stay in anticipation of our son's return from Afghanistan. The return was delayed by 4 days and that put his arrival the day we were to check out. Through the generosity of the Whites, we were able to stay a few more days so we were able to have a couple days of quality time spent cooking home cooked meals and relaxing with our son before our returns to California, Washington and Washington DC. We would highly recommend a stay at this comfortable home.

                            We had two combined families at this beautiful home. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out, and the fact that the home was so well outfitted was wonderful. We used the crab traps and caught some crabs, took the kayaks out each day, and used the beach umbrella at the beach. What a wonderful experience we had. North Topsail Island is tranquil and uncrowded, as is the beach. There were plenty of shells and sharks teeth to be found on the shores, as well, which made for a fun and interesting treasure hunt for everyone in our group. We had planned to go to Wilmington to look around one day during our stay, but were so enchanted with the beach that we never left, and didn't feel we missed a thing. Thank you for your hospitality, Bill and Sandra, and thank you for opening your lovely home to us!

                            What an amazing house with such charm and warmth!!! Two families, 4 boys (6, 7, 8 & 9) and many things to do... Even though the weather wasn't great it didn't seem to matter because we had a fantastic time! There is more than enough space so we didn't feel cramped at all; the boys made the downstairs "their hangout" and loved being able to escape from the adults. However, more often than not, we all (kids included) spent time on the main floor enjoying each other’s company and the exceptional views. On the selfish side, I didn't really want to leave a review because I know it's only a matter of time before the secret gets out about this amazing beach home. Bill & Sandra are wonderful to work with, very accommodating and, once you enter the house, you can immediately tell they have spent years making this house so comfortable and inviting. Thank you again, for allowing us to stay at your home. We will definitely be back!

                            we lucked out to find this gem of a house in north topsail! the views are stunning, we even had some incredible lightening storms so beautiful to watch over the water.... the house was perfect for our family reunion, we fished off the dock, crabbed (great crabbing), flew kites off the deck, walked a few steps to the ocean! Highly recomend this vacation home, the owners are great too! Thanks for a great week!

                            Enjoyed a great family vacation with children and grandchildren. Appreciated the spacious accommodations. A real distinctive feature is the access to the Beach and the Sound. Mornings were spent on the beach and the afternoons kayaking on the Sound. The island is rich in history including a unique Turtle Sanctuary. The listing was accurate. No surprises. The owners Bill and Sandra were very gracious and helpful.

                            We just returned from a family reunion trip to North Topsail. The house is beautiful, clean, and very well equipped. We spent our days on the uncrowded beach, evenings crabbing, and lots of time hot tubbing after the munchkins were in bed. We felt truly at home and had the best vacation we have ever had. Thank you so much to Bill and Sandra for opening up your lovely home to all of us.

                            This house was amazing. Plenty of room for everyone and plenty to do. We had our wedding here, it was an excellent location. We were going to have the ceremony on the beach, but the tides were going to be high at the time we wanted to start. We ended up just having the ceremony on the dock on the bay behind the house. The sunset was amazing and made for the perfect back drop. Everyone loved spending the day on the beach. So accessible and very uncrowded area of the beach. We also took the canoes out on the bay for a wonderful evening paddle. The hottub was so relaxing and provided beautiful views of the bay too! It was a perfect gathering spot for our families and made entertaining and evening barbaques effortless.

                          About the owner: A retired couple who love the beach but have decided to move for a variety of reasons. We have enjoyed Topsail so much we would love to share the beach experience with others. After watching our grandchildren's enjoyment, the wonder of a vacation at the beach is one to be experienced.

                          Why the Owner Chose North Topsail Beach:
                          We chose this area because it is beautiful, uncrowded, and as yet really undiscovered. We have found the most wonderful people vacation here.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          4 Star golf course, Watching wildlife, watching dolphins frolic, teaching children the basics of life at the beach without the high cost of wacky golf and amusements parks.
