The Flip Flop Inn is a beautiful oceanfront beach rental house located in North Topsail Beach in the Village of Stump Sound on Topsail Island. This beach house has everything you could possibly want in a North Carolina beachfront rental: spectacular views of the ocean and the sound; direct beach access; community pool and tennis courts; and just about every amenity you can imagine. You will be spoiled in this 4500 square foot luxurious custom built home. The second floor, the main living area, contains the master suite, greatroom, dining room and kitchen. Cypress paneling and TWO-STORY CATHERAL CEILING with tall windows make the great room truly spectacular. At the top in the Widow's Watch Tower Room you will enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views of the island, the ocean, the sound, sunsets and sunrises. The house features ceramic tile flooring throughout and a home theater surround sound system.


Property Features:: The outside of the house is as amazing as the inside. The Flip Flop Inn sits on an Oceanfront-B Lot, with beach access only a few feet away. Beautiful landscaping and ample parking welcome you as you approach the house. A picnic table and built-in charcoal grill make for pleasant outdoor dining. There are six decks/porches totaling over 1650 square feet of outdoor space. Relax on one of these decks and enjoy the glorious views of ocean and sound.

It's easy to rock the day away in one of the many soundside rockers in a beautiful setting as the boats go by on the sound. If you prefer the relaxing roar of the ocean , pick up a few rays in the lounge chairs or take in the sunrise and have your morning latte by the dining table on the oceanside decks. You'll enjoy the audio system throughout the house and on all the outside upper decks. Linens are included with all prime week and mid-season rentals.

Down the street, there is a community pool and tennis courts. It is a 2 minute walk to the pool. by the street or from the beach. Eight seasonal passes are provided, although day passes may be purchased at the pool. You can lounge in one of the chairs provided or sit in the shade with a good book while you enjoy watching your children play in the pool, with bathroom facilities nearby.

You will find our home to be in small subdivision on a quiet , family beach at the end of a cul-de-sac, and a great place for children to ride bikes or have freedom to roam and explore on their own.

You can have it all--ALL the comforts of home, a quiet family beach, spacious enough for large groups to spend special time together, or quiet time alone watching the sunset or the dolphins frolic. Relax in the tower with a book or glass of wine and enjoy the most amazing panoramic views of the island, and all at the 'INN'.

IF YOU'RE TRULY LOOKING FOR MORE THAN YOUR TYPICAL BEACH HOUSE... grab your flip flops and come chill at the Flip Flop Inn!

Check-in/Check-out : Check-in after 4:00- pending cleaning is completed. Please plan your schedule accordingly, to allow our housekeeper this time to do a complete cleaning, so you will better enjoy your stay, Check-out is 10am promptly.

There are 5 golf courses within 30 minutes (one 4 star course-and only one on the east coast), For shopping, there are several shopping malls in nearby Wilmington or Jacksonville and also quite unique little-not to be missed shops in the area. The fisherman in the family can fish on the beach, off the nearby pier, or take a deep sea charter. So you don't miss your workout, you will find a complete exercise facility in Snead's Ferry, or do a few laps in the community pool, during the morning adults only swim. Not to be missed is the Karen Beasley sea turtle hospital, watching the dolpin's frolic or the pelican's diving for food while relaxing on the deck of our quiet, family beach.

Car: Necessary

Topsail Island was used by the U.S. Government as a secret missile test site after WWII and is also known for its landmark swing bridge. Topsail Island is a nesting ground for the Loggerhead Sea Turtle that build their nests from mid-May to mid-August between sundown and sunrise onshore.

Activities include swimming, surfing, hunting for sharks teeth and shells, dolphin watching (fantastic to see from our deck!), or just relaxing on the beach. Nearby you may also play a round of golf or fish on the pier. You may prefer to go bike riding or kayaking.Whatever entertains your fancy, you will enjoy the beautiful island of Topsail as one of North Carolina's best kept secret beaches.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Bob and Susan Frank live in Raleigh NC. We purchased the property and built the Flip Flop Inn in 2005. Along w/ help from our sons and their girlfriends (now wives) we stained all the beautiful woodwork ourselves, and is quite amazing to see. We always enjoy listening to the roar of the ocean or watching for dolphins off the deck. No better place to be than relaxing on the beach.
