Nice Property for the Price
"The best part of the house is the view. It's magnificent.
The house itself was decent. All the showers functioned, the appliances ran fine (although the dishwasher didn't seem to clean very well), and the air conditioning worked. It does need some general home maintenance work. In addition, the property could have been cleaner. It was clean enough for the week, but it definitely needs a deeper cleaning. The steps from the deck to the beach are buried in sand worse than any of the other properties around it. It makes walking to and from the beach very difficult.
The only other thing that I can say is that the photos of the property need to be updated. There are duplicate photos and some of the furniture is different than what is in the photos as is the color of the house, which was a bit confusing when we first arrived. To be clear, the photos currently listed do not misrepresent the property by any means they simply are out of date.
Would we stay at this property again? In its current condition, I'm not sure. We enjoyed our time at the beach and the house suited our needs and our budget."

"We had a wonderful time at the fish camp! The house has so many interesting features that make it truly special. We had perfect weather for our stay but if the weather had been bad there is a wonderful selection of books available. My kids had a blast catching crabs and kayaking in the sound behind the house. Topsail is just over the bridge and has great beaches to enjoy. The southern part of the island is especially nice. We will be staying at the fish camp again! Highly recommended!"

"Discovered the Dolphin Watch about 4 or 5 years ago! Best place ever. Always clean, comfy, my doggies LOVE it and the best beach house for the WHOLE family! The open concept makes for great fresh seafood feast. Cook more on vacation than I do when I am home! The screened in porch is fabulous as is the deck and the comfy captains chairs! Very budget friendly and working with the Craft's has been a very okeasant experience. Highly recommend you give it a try! Better book early though! It is a GREAT place to enjoy Topsail Islampnd!"

"This home is indeed family friendly! It is stocked with everything our family needed, and more. ..baby gear, lots of toys for kids, plenty of kitchen ware, and ample space for everyone. Clean and comfortable and, as advertised, a wonderful oceanfront location. Owner Nadine was easy to contact and she always responded to questions or concerns promptly. We would definitely return!"
