"I cannot say enough positive about this place or its owner. The condo is wonderful. The view off the balcony alone is worth it, but add in two very comfortable bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a living/dining area, and a well-stocked kitchen (appliances, blender, toaster, utensils, glasses, dishes, pots/pans....), and you have a fantastic getaway location. If you are looking for a no-hassle place to relax, this is it. Just bring your own bath towels, grab whatever groceries you want on your drive in, unpack and relax. Steve has the rest well-covered.
If you hate having to set up beach chairs and umbrellas, pay the very little bit extra and a local service will take care of it for you. It will be worth every penny. The on-site restaurant provides good food and good service, there's an indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool at the complex, and there is a work-out room with some staple cardio and weight equipment. A handful of other good restaurants are in the area (not in walking distance), and they can be reached within about a 15-minute drive.
Steve takes very good care of his property and makes sure your experience is as positive as it can be. When a battery went out in one of the smoke detectors and a spare 9-volt battery wasn't anywhere to be found in the condo, I messaged Steve just to let him know. He responded quickly and went above and beyond to rectify what had been, to me, such an insignificant incident. I wish more people understood excellent customer service the way Steve does.
If you have active teenagers that need a boardwalk scene for entertainment, North Topsail Beach is not the ideal location for you. This is only a residential area that includes rental houses and condos. But if you're needing a place to retreat to, and if you prefer beaches that aren't crowded, book this place. You will not regret it."
