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.

Everything we expected
The house was great. Great view behind house. House was nice and clean
Just what we were looking for!
We had an excellent experience in this property! It really was "so much fun!" :-) The home is very well kept, clean and in good repair. It had all the necessities and Mark was very easy to communicate with. Neighbors were friendly and even gave us recommendations for their favorite things to do or restaurants to visit. There was a detailed book from the owners with loads of helpful information about the area. It was very easy to walk to the beach and as a family with two little (8 and 6 years old) that was important! They loved loved loved the dock behind the house and watching for crabs. I really appreciated that there were beach chairs, sand toys and even a cart we could use out of the supply shed. We had fun exploring the ICW with the canoe (not brave enough for the paddle board...next time!) and the morning and sunset views from both balconies were just heavenly. We recommend this place highly and will love to come back!
Just what we needed and a great location.
Great place. We’ll maintained. Lots of space.
Loved it. Short distance to the beach. Great view of inlet. Well stocked with everything you could need. Lots of space.
The property and the owner mark couldn't have been more perfect. All the amenities the cleanliness.
The fully stocked kitchen was amazing All the Small Things you wouldn't expect were there we didn't have to worry about anything but our clothes and us.
Just like pictured and described
We had just rented a VRBO property in Pensacola Beach in June that was NOT as it was pictured so I was wary before I arrived here. We couldn't have been more comfortable or pleased with this house and I'd definitely rent it again. We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers so 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms worked great for us. Kitchen had everything we needed. We were there the week of the 4th and the deck is prime viewing for fireworks. I saw mamma raccoon and babies swimming in the sound out the back deck. It's about a 2 block walk to the beach. We used the kayaks and bikes.
