About Candice Brenneman
I (Candice) am a mental health therapist. I spent 6 years contracting with the Marine Corps and Army, and lived on Topsail Island while serving with CLB 26, 24, and 22. I have a private practice in North Carolina and contract with some domestic violence shelters. I fell in love with Topsail during my time there. I am orginally from Iowa and grew up on a farm, and love the ocean as Iowa is far from any water. I looked for nearly a year to find the "right" home for my budget, the "right" location, and a home that did not need too many renovations. My dream is to share the home with military families and other families on vacation.
Candice Brenneman purchased this House in 2017
Why Candice Brenneman chose North Topsail Beach
We wanted a home to share with military family members. We know a lot of families want to experience something besides Jacksonville or a motel when they come to visit their Marine. In addition, I eventually want to have marital, family, and/or reunification retreats as part of my therapy practice. We loved that this property is right on the ocean, which attracts so many families for vacation. Vacation was one of my highlights as a child, as my mom always made sure we saw things (to dream big) outside of the Midwest and had various experiences. In addition, my siblings and I have wonderful memories from our roadtrips. We hope that your family and friends create wonderful memories while here. Please add your photos to our FB page under "The Lime"
What makes this House unique
It is right on the beach. The views are unobstructed. You you don't have to make several trips carrying all of your stuff to the beach and/or cross a road to access the beach, which is much safer with children. It's quiet and not a commercialized beach, which is rare to find.

Very clean and spacious.
The “Lime” was a great experience. This house was very nice, very clean. There were eight people in our group and we had plenty of room. We never felt crowded at all.
We all had a great time and very much enjoyed staying here. We will definitely plan on staying here again on our next trip to Topsail.
The bottle of wine left by Candace for us to enjoy was much appreciated. That was a very nice touch.
Thank you Candace for helping to make a great vacation for our family. We look forward to staying at “The Lime” again!
Our family loved our stay at the Lime! The house was clean and beautifully decorated!
Our family loved this Vacation! The beach right off the deck was amazing! We swam, collected sea shells and shark teeth and relaxed on the beach. We played games at night and played golf at several courses close by. I would defiantly stay at the “Lime” for a magical get away!

Very beautiful place, comfortable like home.
We had a wonderful time!
Came to Topsail for weekend wedding and shared this beautiful home with family and friends a few miles from the wedding site. When you walk into a home that you've never visited, in a place that you've never been too, and your reaction is one of total relaxation and exhilarating at the same time, then I think you know what I think of this place. It is a beautiful home.
I had a couple of glitches on day 1 that I need not go into detail about, that required the owners assistance. She was immediately responsive and addressed the issue. She was amazing to deal with.
This is well appointed, well stocked home. I was amazed by Topsail and sitting on the deck looking out on the expanse of ocean and miles of sandy beach was breathtaking. I look forward to returning with more time to spend and explore and I would book this home again without hesitation.
We had a fantastic weekend at the lime! It was perfect for 3 adults, and we sincerely appreciated having all linens provided!
Very clean and better looking than most
