About Mark

Three months ago my wife Kim came home from a trip to Florida and said "Mark, I think I want a beach home." So, being the smart man I am, we cashed in part of our retirement account and bought a beach home! Kim loves the beach and I love kayaking on the sound (Intracoastal Waterway) so we bought this beautiful home with a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 40 feet out our back door to kayaking in the sound. Our first day we kayaked 15 minutes to Hardees for a milkshake. And yes, you can also kayak a few minutes more to a nice seafood restaurant (Sears Landing). And of course you can enjoy the beaches of Topsail Island. Come check out "So Much Fun!" Also check out our other vrbo mountain house vacation rental in Linville Land Harbor NC at vrbo 795627. thanks, Mark

Mark purchased this townhome in 2017

Why Mark chose Surf City

Check out the pictures! TripAdvisor ranked Surf City on Topsail Island number 5 out of the top 20 affordable beach destinations across the US. Topsail is a wonderful family beach with quaint towns, shops, and restaurants - and great outdoor activities including swimming, biking, kayaking, surfing, SUP paddle boarding, fishing, crabbing, jet skiing, mini golf, roller skating, walks/jogs on the beach, birding, etc. 10 minute walk/bike ride/kayak! to town, no need for car after you arrive! The beaches are beautiful near the home - but also explore the beaches at the south and north end of Topsail Island (take a stroll). There's a well regarded Sea Turtle Rescue Hospital you can tour. In other words, lots to do!

What makes this townhome unique

Beauty, history, and fun! Right on the intracoastal waterway! Great views and sunsets! Community dock on sound. 5 minute walk to beach. Bike or kayak to town. Great view of the "old swing bridge" from the home. Can get by without driving your car if you like.

Clean, comfortable, canoe and kayak, walk to the beach

We spent a long weekend. The condo was spacious, well appointed and immaculate.

We especially enjoyed using the canoe from the dock just outside the door. Easy walk to the beach.

Wonderful Getaway!

Very well met our needs.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was enjoyable. It really met our needs. Our son's family was able to visit for the weekend.

It was well stocked, neat, and close enough to enjoy the ocean.

We only wish the nice weather would have come sooner. The steps got to be enough.
