  • FABULOUS, RELAXING VACATION!!

    "We enjoyed one of the best, most relaxing vacation ever at the Blue Roof in North Topsail Beach!! We had the pleasure of staying here before, and couldn't wait to get back! The house is beautiful, clean, and fully equipped with anything one may need. We enjoyed our mornings on the upper deck, watching the ocean waves, pelicans, and dolphins. Our days were spent walking on the beach and swimming in the waves, and just relaxing! The beach was absolutely gorgeous, and just a step down off the deck! We couldn't ask for a more beautiful location, and wonderful vacation! The owner is very helpful, and responsive to any inquiries we had. We would definitely recommend this property; we can't wait to come back!!"

  • Nice to work with

    "We had a family issue come up that caused us to cancel our vacation and we actually weren't able to stay in this condo. But I must say that Tony was very understanding and easy to work with. He was compassionate and refunded our deposit when he technically didn't have to. I am definitely keeping this property on file to reserve for the next vacation we take to Topsail Island."

  • Very Nice Home - Situated in Quiet Area But Near to Beach

    "My wife and family visited this home and found the accomodations to be everything we expected. The outdoor pool offered an extra amenity which worked very well for an older family member as she could enjoy the nice weather and swim. The home interior was perfect for our family members who attended a wedding and the rooms were nicely furnished and bathrooms were well suited for our needs. Overall, the home was perfect for our trip and I really appreciate Kelly and Phil accomodating our needs. We only wish that we had a little more time to spend together as a family as the Topsail Island community was a relaxing place to spend a vacation. Everything worked out well and we hope to schedule another family vacation at this same home next summer. Thank you Kelly and Phil for allowing us to stay in your home and for accomodating our needs. We really appreciate all you did to make our stay one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had in a long time."

  • Our week at Big Blue

    "We loved your condo. Decorated very pretty. Loved the decor and the themes in each room. The space was perfect, as we only had 6 people. Everyone had their own private area. The layout was so user friendly and even though the steps were a hike each time, they provided an opportunity for some good ole exercise. We had everything we needed very close by. Roger was very nice and showed us around and explained everything we needed to know. We even got to check in a bit early, which was nice. The location of the condo is great. Very close to anything around the Carolina Beach area. Just enjoyed it very much. Glad to find. Would defnitely rent again if we decide to venture down that way again. The beach is a good ole fashioned family atmosphere and a lot more layed back than North Myrtle, which is where we usually vacation. Nice change of pace. We went into Wilmington 2 nights and even rode the ferry over to SouthPort one day. Just had a great time. Ken and Vanghi Trull"

Coastal Travel Tips

Getting to North Carolina’s Spectacular Coast

With over 300 miles of coastline, North Carolina Coast vacation properties are all perfect for visitors looking for a great vacation. While summer is the tourist season here, the weather makes it an ideal area for early vacations in spring. April and May are great times to avoid the crowds but still enjoy good weather. Late in the season, September and October, are also good times to stay in North Carolina Coast vacation rentals.

Once visitors decide which part of this beautiful area to base their vacation, getting here will be a breeze. Heading to the Outer Banks, visitors may choose to fly to Raleigh-Durham or Norfolk International and drive down to the coast. There are also smaller regional airports to head further down the coast. Boat owners will be delighted with the option of over 400 marinas interspersed around the region and the Intracoastal Waterway gives access to a variety of destinations, such as Morehead City, Beaufort and Emerald Isle.

The main road route through Outer Banks is Route 12 and highways to other areas are US 158 to Kitty Hawk and Nags Head or Interstate 40 from Wilmington. US Highway 17 takes visitors from Wilmington to New Bern.

More Than Just a Beach-Lover’s Paradise

It may be tempting to spend each and every long, glorious day just chilling out on the beach or taking part in the many water-based delights of the area but there are some great day trips to be had. The USS North Carolina Battleship memorial offers the chance to tour a ship that took part in every major naval battle in the Pacific in World War II. To learn more about the Civil War, visit Moore’s Creek National Battlefield. Fans of Michael Jordan will find his exhibit at the Cape Fear Museum of History and Science a fascinating insight into this popular basketball player. The museum also features a 1.5-million-year-old giant sloth discovered locally.

Combine an evening stroll with something a little more adventurous by taking a ghost tour of haunted Wilmington, or try a haunted pub crawl. The area covered by the Cape Lookout National Seashore includes the abandoned Portsmouth Village. Settled in the mid-1700s, this village was inhabited until the early 1970s when the last two residents left. Today, it is open to the public to tour. A favorite for visitors is to head to Roanoke Island, site of Sir Walter Raleigh’s attempt to establish an English colony. The original inhabitants were left with provisions; when new provisions arrived three years later, the inhabitants had disappeared. Their fate remains a mystery to this day and visitors today can visit as archaeologists and historians work to solve this long-standing puzzle.

Don’t Leave Without Sampling the Seafood

Visitors to North Carolina Coast lodging should not miss the opportunity to sample the delights of the variety of fresh seafood offered by local restaurants. There is a fabulous selection of tuna, oysters, shrimp, grouper and the best clam chowder around.

What Makes North Carolina Lodging Special

With an array of properties to suit any size of family or group of friends, the toughest choice is deciding which area best suits your individual desires. Whether it is a lively resort such as Wilmington or Nags Head or one of the quiet, North Carolina vacation properties scattered along the coast, you will find one perfect for you. These properties are well-equipped and welcoming, with many happy to include your four-legged family member too! Spacious homes where visitors can travel back from the sandy beach without a care in the world abound here, and there is plenty of room to dry bathing suits and towels.
