  • Ahhhh...mazing!

    "Such a great place for large families! We vacationed over Easter and had a wide range of ages in our group...30 somethings, grandparents, small children, preteens and teenagers in our group....everyone was pleased! The house is perfect and it had ample space for the whole family to spread out and enjoy themselves! It rained most of the time so we thoroughly enjoyed the wrap around deck and balcony upstairs! The house is centrally located on the island so we were close to everything, especially the ocean:) We couldn't have asked for a better house for our family vacation. Owner answered the phone right away and was very helpful when I called him with a question when we first arrived! It was an amazing house in an amazing location....we vacation in Topsail every year and from now on we will only stay at this property we loved everything about it!"

  • The Great Escape!

    "Our Family of 19 just stayed here to celebrate my grandmother's 90th Birthday! What a wonderful home and location. The view from the porch is priceless and we ate dinner on the deck to the sounds of the ocean every night. The rooms are comfortable and there is plenty of space for everyone! The owners are so accommodating to meet your needs. I highly recommend this property for your vacation needs! It is simply the best!"

  • Family Vacation

    "Excellent location right on the beach! Nice having one bedroom on upper level, the room with bunks for the kids to share, and such a nice, large kitchen. Having a washer and dryer is ALWAYS a good thing, and the three bathrooms were essential to family harmony. :-) Love the generous amount of dishes provided. Remember to notice that two of the beds are King size so you bring the correct sheets!"

  • An Amazing Weekend!!

    "We had an amazing four-day weekend in this home! This was a birthday celebration for our 9 year old who wanted to go to the beach to fish! Since the house slept 11, we were able to bring some cousins and in-laws. We had the most wonderful time!! The owner was VERY reasonable in price and fees, check in and check out times. Linens were provided and the house had the essentials (laundry soap, toilet paper, paper towels, etc...). The beach access is just across the street and the beach was pretty much ours the whole weekend!! There was the occasional passer-by, but for the most part, we had the beach to ourselves for as far as we could see! The puppies ran on the beach, the kids played soccer, and one evening we flew kites for hours! The weather, though it wasn't hot, it was mild enough that the kids could splash in the water as they searched for shark teeth. The location of the house and the views were amazing!! Every morning, we sat on the porch facing the ocean with coffee or hot chocolate in hand and watched the dolphins jumping the waves. Several fishing boats passed by giving the kids something to ooo and ahhhh about! In the evenings, we watched the most amazing sunsets!!! I honestly can't say that I have seen a sunset so beautiful as I did this weekend! Towards the west, the golden, warm hues were stunning, and in the east, the pinks, purples, and blue hues of dusk were breathtaking!! My pictures of these sights are picturesque! The house is clean and in the perfect location! We really enjoyed the fact that we could bring our puppies without paying ridiculous costs!! (Thanks, Steve!) The puppies enjoyed the gated wrap around porch, too! The owner's brother lives nearby and allowed us to use his boat dock on the sound for our first fishing event ever!! My son who wanted to come to the beach to fish was the first to catch one!! The excitement on his face sealed the perfect weekend. :) Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, Steve. We made family memories all weekend long!! We will be back!! From a family who had the most amazing weekend!!!"

Surf City Travel Tips

Avoid the Crowds With Surf City Vacation Rentals

If you've ever seen a picture of Coney Island during the summer you know how crowded a popular beach can get. You barely have room to put on suntan lotion! That's not what you're going to find when you book Topsail Island beach rentals. Surf City is one of the three quaint beach towns that make up Topsail Island, North Carolina. The Surf City beach homes you can find on Vacation Rentals by Owner offer up a marvelous stay right on the ocean. There's also a pretty good chance that you'll be able to claim a large section of the beach just for your own!

Topsail Island is All About the Vacation

If you're going to create a resort town then you want to make sure there will be plenty to do for all the visitors coming your way. This means that from your Surf City vacation rental you can be within walking distance of cafes, shops and outdoor fun. Renting a bike is a perfect way to explore the island and stake out all the great spots you want to come back to. You can even consider heading off the island for a day trip to take in the beauty of North Carolina.

Open Home Living in Surf City

The folks living and working on Topsail Island know how important your vacation is and that's why they've literally opened up their homes to you. These Surf City beach homes are not only open and inviting but they include the same personal touches you might find in your own home. Everything you need to whip up a family fun meal is in your fully equipped kitchen. You can pick a Surf City vacation rental that has more than one bathroom so that peace can reign!
