"The whole experience, from our initial contact with the owners to our departure from Sur La Mer, was truly a wonderful experience. As soon as we crossed the high bridge to get on to North Topsail we were so excited as we saw the ocean stretch out in front of us, and when we got into the home and looked out on the water we saw a pod of dolphins greet us! We were 13 people (5 kids ages 11-17 and 8 adults) including two small dogs, and we had plenty of space where no one seemed to be crowded. We particularly loved the porches facing the ocean, with the top porch having a gate to keep the dogs in check. Traveling at the end of March, we were a little nervous with the weather, but were fortunate to have mostly sunny days where the kids enjoyed body surfing and skim boarding. What we like best of all about this house is that it is located on nice quiet area, not congested with condo buildings, restaurants, and surf shops, which is just a few minutes drive away. Very convenient location to grocery stores, CVS, and places to eat. I will recommend this property to all my friends, and we will most definitely return again!
Thank you so much for sharing your fantastic get-away with us!"

"One of our friends put it best, coming to Idyll by the Sea is like going to your favorite grandmother's house. But better. And nicer. They were right. Idyll is perfect. High quality everything -- from the stemware to the towels to the bed linens! The location is private, the pool is spectacular. The decks and views can't be matched. Carol thinks of every detail and in the rare instance something breaks, she is responsive and ensures everything is taken care of by her fabulous local team. We could simply not imagine a better experience. And, obviously, neither could our friends! We have had many fabulous stays at Idyll and look forward to many more!"

"Had a wonderful time at Topsail, as usual. Condo was very comfortable. Well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, decorated simply but beautiful, just the right amount of space for my husband and I. Thanks for sharing your condo with us. Also, love the deck chairs, coffee table and picture in the dining area :) P.S. The umbrella and chair rental service is totally worth getting and The Shrimp House is a wonderful place to have dinner."

"I spent a weekend at Pirates Cove Beach house during a wedding. We had a great time and the accommodations were perfect! The weather was cold and uninviting, but several of our party went out and walked along the beach. After returning, we enjoyed the hot tub, which was a real treat. Everything was very clean and home-like. A great place to vacation, or have a family party."
