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

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.

Beautiful, clean home with easy access to the beach and amazing views!
My 3 friends and I stayed here for 2 nights for a portion of our girls week together. The house was wonderful. Everything that we needed was provided. It's in a great location with the sound right off the back and the beach a five minute walk away. The only issue we had was the 2 twin beds in one of the bedrooms. They were so uncomfortable that one of us slept on the couch and the other put all mattress toppers that we could find on the other one. We worked it out and it was fine, but no one should have to sleep in those beds!!
Thanks for the review. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and vacation (except for the twin mattresses). It’s difficult to please everyone with mattresses, because some folks like them firm, and some like them soft. At any rate, based on your feedback, we are replacing the mattresses in the twin bedroom – it will be done this week (maybe we’ll buy one soft and one firmer?). We hope you come back soon - and enjoy all the amenities of So Much Fun! and Topsail Island again. Thanks for staying with us!
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.
Exactly as pictured. Great location, very clean, would definitely stay again.
So glad you enjoyed it - come back soon! Mark
Came down for a weekend, the only issue was that we weren't here long enough. We loved exploring the beach and kayaking around the sound! All in all a very relaxing time!
Very well met our needs.
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.
