"We spent a thoroughly wonderful 10 day vacation here. Kitchen is well equipped (though I'm not cooking when on vacation!). It was great to have beach chairs, toys, etc. My grandson had a wonderful time in the evenings with the toys and games. Roomy and well-maintained, each floor has a beautiful view of the ocean. We look forward to returning next year - it's one of the best on Topsail.
Now to the suggested questions: Was the description accurate? Yes. Were the photos accurate? Yes. Was the condo clean and well-maintained? Yes. Was the owner helpful in answering questions? There was no need to ask anything. Would I recommend the condo to a friend or relative? Absolutely. What activities would I recommend? Oh, you just gotta go to Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rehab. Prepare to take your time - the guides are very thorough, so it's a little slow, but definitely well worth it. Sears Landing and the Bistro are great. Bistro is a little less "beachy," while Sears Landing has a fantastic deck. Food at both places is great and both are very good at accomodating kids."

"This was our first trip to the North Carolina Coast and we loved it. This property is perfect for larger families of all ages. The porches with the view of the ocean were enjoyed by all of us. The walk to the ocean was very quick and easy. We can't wait to come back!"

"This is our second year renting Carolina Blue and we want to go back again in 2016. We love the layout of the cottage and the kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed preparing meals there instead of going out and found all the utensils needed to do so. The owners are so thoughtful and easy to work with. Our 4 year old granddaughter enjoyed the toys, games and videos that the owners provide. The beach is beautiful and the water is very clean. The park near the swing bridge and the walkway nearby is a fun place for kids and adults too. We are already looking forward to next summer!!!!"

"We stayed at Sparrow’s Beach Nest the first week in October 2014 and had a fabulous time. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 2 small children.
The cottage was wonderful and worked perfectly for everyone, giving us both privacy and great living space. We especially loved the decks!! The shaded one (2nd floor) was what we needed for the sunny days and the top one was great at night. Usually a 2nd floor deck of a 3 story cottage has a view of sand dunes, but not this one. The beach and ocean were in clear view and there was a nice breeze - making it my favorite location!
The outside shower right by the ground floor entry was perfect for getting the sand off the little (and big) ones after being on the beach all day. Yes, we were on the beach in October. It was warm and the water was just right for swimming.
And last, but definitely not least, Lisa was immediately available all week ensuring we had everything we needed. She even called her family veterinarian to secure an appointment for our dog who injured her knee while playing on the beach. That sealed the deal for us - she is awesome and treats guests like family. We will definitely be back to Sparrow’s Beach Nest!!!!"
