Surf City cottage description

YOU WILL BE CAPTIVATED!! Perfect for family vacations, Topsail Island is one of North Carolina's beautiful barrier islands, 26 miles of soft sand and gentle waves. Our house -- named 'S.O.S.' for those in need of a rescue from stress - offers spectacular views from all four decks. Watch the sunrise over the ocean and enjoy your coffee from the master suite deck (with a king-size bed) or while relaxing in the upper deck rocking chairs. Celebrate the sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway from the rear decks and revel in the peace of the maritime forest.

5-STAR REVIEWS! Please see our full guest comments below, but here are a few excerpts:

***** 2/1/2011 'Cannot wait to get back . . . highly recommended.'
***** 8/15/2010 'I am a return visitor to S.O.S. . . . the perfect accommodation for us! We will make every effort to return next year.'
***** 8/11/2010 'We recently stayed at S.O.S. and couldn't have been happier . . . we will definitely return to S.O.S!!

When you're ready to swim, surf, stroll on the beach, perfect your shell collection or just work on your tan, walk across the street to our private deeded boardwalk right over the dunes. S.O.S. features a great room, four seats at the bar, and a dining table for eight people. Keep up with your favorite shows with our Premium HD Cable Package on 4 new flat screen TV's - it's HBO, Showtime, you name it! Bring your favorite movies for 3 DVD players! Listen to your favorite tunes by docking your iPhone or iPod into the Logitech portable speaker/charger. The family room furniture is comfortable, gorgeous and brand new in 2013. Wireless High Speed Internet! When you tire of surfing the waves, surf the Web!

I spent my childhood summers at Topsail Island and have many wonderful memories. You won't be disappointed with this special place and will make many magical memories of your own. If you like busy, loud, and over developed beaches, Topsail IS NOT for you -- Topsail Island is quiet, peaceful and uncrowded. Really, a throwback to beach towns from the 50's (so I've been told!) that simply don't exist anymore - except here! It offers a quaint beach town, with fishing piers, shops and galleries owned by Islanders, good seafood restaurants, and a relaxing, casual atmosphere. And best of all, it offers the beautiful beaches for walking, shelling, boating, surfing, and possibly seeing some Loggerhead turtles. (And if you don't see them during nesting season, check out our famous Turtle Rescue Hospital the only one on the east coast - kids love it!)

For a little more hustle and bustle, Wilmington and Myrtle Beach are fun day trips. Wilmington is just 30 miles away. Check out the USS North Carolina battleship and the historic district in downtown Wilmington, right on the beautiful Cape Fear River. Golfers will enjoy a large variety of first class courses.

This is really a special place. I know you'll love it as much as I do!

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About: I grew up in a small town about 50 miles from Topsail Island. Although I live up north about a 7-hour drive away, I visit Topsail as much as possible, at least once each season!

                  Why Surf City:
                  I spent my childhood vacationing on Topsail Island and have always known what a special place it is.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Great ocean views, in a very quiet, private part of the island.
