Topsail Beach house description

Come discover the Crab Trap this summer. The décor exudes comfort in traditional beach cottage style. The furnished covered porch of this rental home on Topsail Island is the perfect spot for an early morning cup of coffee.
When you pull up to Crab Trap you’ll be greeted by the sand, sea and the sweet ocean air. Pristine white sand beaches meet the crystal blue ocean in the east, while the serene Intra-coastal waterway borders the marshes and creeks on the sound side. Kayak the sound or Intra-coastal and look for great blue herons, osprey, dolphins, and other wildlife. Boat lovers agree that the picturesque surroundings can’t be beat. And beachcombers enjoy soaking up the sun and shelling for shark’s teeth.

Ground Level: Parking for up to 4 vehicles. The steps to the front door are on the right side of the home. Beneath the stairs is a door that leads inside the garage. Inside you will find a full size washer/dryer, beach chairs and boogies boards, all for your use during your vacation. There is an outside shower to wash the sand off your feet after a relaxing afternoon.

Main Level: Walk around to the oceanfront deck, and you will find the front door. What a better way to start your vacation than by a breathe taking ocean view before you even enter the house! The oceanfront deck has deck furniture for you to enjoy during your stay along. There is a gate that can be left open or closed during your stay at the beach access and the stairs leading up from the ground level, perfect for ensuring the safety of the little ones. There is a covered deck area and a open deck area as you walk down the stairs to the beach.

Living Area: You’ll enter into the main living space of this cottage. The living room has a comfy blue sofa and two matching recliners. Imagine laying back in a recliner while watching the waves in the distance. The room also has a TV with VCR and DVD player and plenty of books to read. If you didn’t get a chance to finish your paperback you were reading, don’t worry about it. The Crab Trap has a book exchange, simply leave a book you did finish and take the other one with you. Want to stay inside one day? With the large oceanfront windows in the living area you can relax indoors and still be able to watch dolphin running. There is also a hat rack behind the front door to hang your sun hat.

Kitchen and Dining: The kitchen has white cabinets and a large island area with three stools. The blue countertops and cabinet knobs bring a little of the blue ocean indoors. The kitchen offers a refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker, toaster and toaster oven. The dining area joins the kitchen, for wonderful oceanfront dining. The wooden table sits up to 8. Want to order in one night? Crab Trap has taken care of the guess work and provides take out menus in the kitchen. Open the front door and enjoy the ocean breeze through the screened storm door.

The oceanfront deck offers both a covered part and uncovered. Sit in the shade and watch the children play in the surf, or sun yourself on the white rocking chairs while you watch the sun dance off the waves.

                      About: We live in Raleigh, NC and frequent the Crab Trap often! We spend 2-3 weeks there ourselves each summer and many weekends and holidays throughout the year.

                      Why Topsail Beach:
                      Complete interior remodeling completed in 2010. New colorful paint throughout with new furniture and fixtures! Can't beat the closeness to the water. The deck at the top of the dune stairs is a terrific place to relax and watch the day time beach activities and unwind with a beverage at sunset!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Terrific front porch rockers for relaxing in the shade with a cool summer breeze. Enclosed parking, washer dryer
