Recent Surf City reviews

  • Great Mini Vacation!

    "Nana's Dream is just that! Great location, clean, "homey", spacious, "all included". We were able to see the fireworks at the Surf City Park easily from the front porch. We didn't need a thing. Working with "Nana" was super easy and very enjoyable. My husband and two children, 14 and 11, had a great time and hope to return soon. Thanks for making our last days of summer fantastic!"

  • Can't Wait To Get Back

    "We have stayed at SOS three times now and can not wait until our return in the Fall. This is a terrific house in a great location. The unobstructed views of the beach and ocean are spectacular. The house is so close to the water that we have actually watched dolphins swimming while we sat on the upper deck. Plenty to do and see, lost of shopping, or just relaxing."

  • A great place to stay at a great beach

    "I don't know what else to add that has not already been stated in other reviews. It is a really nice and well maintained town home. I was pleasantly surprised with how close it was to the ocean. It was closer than what I perceived from the pictures. The kitchen was well equipped. The check in and out was simple. The owner Ken was easy to work with. I would for sure look into using this property again."

  • Awesome Property

    "We stayed at this house the week of 7/6/2014. It was very clean, well equiped, and the decor was wonderful. The entrance is a large room were you are able to leave your shoes to avoid tracking the sand to the rest of the rooms. This room also has an air hockey table which was a hit for the kids. The second floor bedrooms master faces the ocean and the other two the pool. All these bedrooms have decks. The best view of the ocean is from the third level of the house - the living room/kitchen area. We loved having breakfast or lunch overlooking the ocean. The property is separated from the ocean by a quiet, dead-end road and of course, a dune; however the beach access is convieniently close to the property. The lower level, outside shower area is convenient as well. When we rented this property my concern was how well equiped it was because I did not want to be in a position to aquire kitchen utensils on site, but I also was not thrilled about packing my kitchen to bring it with me. This house is well equiped- from kitchen utensils and kitchen appliances, to beach gear (umbrellas, beach cart, beach chairs etc.). The owner also offers a linen packet for a charge; it is totally worth getting it. Beware of staircases if you are traveling with elders or people with physical limitations. We traveled with our grandmother, so she took the third floor bedroom where she had access to the a bathroom, a deck, kitchen, and living room in the same level. The huband, I , and the kids adapted to the stairs fairly quickly. It hasn't been a week yet, and we can't wait to return."

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!
