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.

Our family decided to spend Thanksgiving at the beach this year and we had a wonderful time. We watched the dolphins, shared laughs and enjoyed every view from this beautiful beach front home! Was very nice and had all the amenities we needed! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Who knew!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Well maintained, beachfront oasis with views from every window.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the solitude and private beach access. The third floor deck off the master bedroom was almost more enjoyable then sitting on the beach. I will definitely be returning in peak season to take advantage of the beach/ocean and restaurants.

USS North Carolina Battleship Memorial
Nice thing for the family to do on a rainy day, when you can't go to the beach.
Mayfaire Town Center
Excellent shopping experience. High-end stores. Everything is outside. Great restaurants.
Car: necessary

We recommend the following restaurants: Beauchaines 211

Shuckin' Shack

Daddy Mac's Beach Grille

Inlet 790 Grill and Bar

There is a Walmart Grocery and a Food Lion in Surf City if coming from the south or a Food Lion in Sneads Ferry (right off of highway 210) if coming from the North.

There is a ABC store in Surf City, right after the bridge or in Sneads Ferry by the Subway and Dominio's.

You can rent jet skis and other water sports equipment at Makin Waves in Sneads Ferry.
