Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Wow, a beach vacation with the family, in a home that's as cute as this one is? This year, you're going to love your vacation!

This is the most beautiful house on Topsail! And it's right on the beach - not an 'ocean-view' a couple of blocks from the beach or across the street from the beach, or even a piano lot (with only a small strip that extends between the houses to the beach). Seas the Day is right on the beach and the house is gorgeous.

Now wait a minute...I bet you think I'm just saying that. Well look at what some of are guests have said (see the full comments below):

'The website does not do this house justice! It is gorgeous, and the views of the beach and water are amazing from every room. ' Bonnie from Va

'Seas the Day is one of the best vacation houses I have stayed in. ... You will not be disappointed if you rent this place' Norma Jean from Ohio

'I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a wonderful beach house that has one of the best vistas in Topsail.' Mark from Northern Va

'Loved that house!!!!!! oh my, the walk to the pier was wonderful and so pretty. the house was perfect and held my whole family! it was an awesome vacation! thank you so much! wonderful!' Jessica from Ohio

And it goes on. You will truly love your stay at Seas the Day.

Located just 1 mile south of the Surf City pier, you're close to all the activity, yet just far enough away to enjoy the tranquility that lives here also. As a matter of fact, you may note some of our guests jokingly refer to the 'Buddy's walk'. Buddy's is a bar/restaurant by the pier, which is a nice 1 mile walk on the beach. Some people, including my brother, myself and our two wives like to walk down to Buddy's at lunch time, watch the surfers by the pier, order oyster shooters, and... possibly a cerveza or two (that's Spanish for beer) and maybe a tequila shooter. Well, the walk back is now quite enjoyable. We often just come back, lay out a towel and catch some rays and a snooze. The Buddy's walk - a perfect way to spend a vacation day.

Do you like to bike or run? There is a bike shoulder on the main road the entire way from the north side of Surf City to the south tip of the island. The island is like 22 miles long, so you can get a good work out.

Recently I rode my bike to the south end, and the smell of Jasmin and ocean air was unbelievable. I stopped on the far south point of the island and walked around the beach on the undeveloped point. I then rode back to Topsail Beach city hall and said hi to the ladies who worked there. (They had kindly sent me an invitation to pay real estate tax in their city even though my house was in Surf City. I graciously declined :-) but they were very pleasant.) I then rode back to Surf City and promptly bought an ice cream cone at DQ just to make sure I hadn't burnt off too many calories.

Believe me, this place is fun.

And I haven't even told you about Giligan's, just before the bridge on the mainland side and it's hilarious karaoke nights, or about Sears Landing and its award winning clam chowder made with sherry, or Indigo Marsh - the best restaurant overlooking the sound that you will ever find. Oh, and how about the fresh fish market (I mean right off the boat) behind the Crab Pot where you can get shrimp, flounder, shark or whatever they have been catching and take it back and grill it at Seas the Day.

You can play 18 holes at Coastal Carolina's only four-star golf course, North Shore Golf and Ocean Club (as per Golf Digest).

Surf shops that make me wish I was 18 again, Andy's and Island Delights that serve 50's style burgers and malts, the Surf City Wine and Cheese Shop (I go in for the weekly wine tastings and just the great smell!), II Bouchaines, and on and on. You won't want to leave.

And I haven't even talked about surf fishing, kayaking, surfing, jet skiing and more (check out the ALL CAPS paragraph below to see my web site for MORE things to do with phone numbers, addresses, etc.)

Seas the Day is BEACH FRONT. It is not a piano lot, a view lot, or across the street from the ocean. It is direct OCEANFRONT property.

For my RESTAURANT REVIEWS and THINGS TO DO web pages, LOOK BELOW THE CALENDAR ICON FARTHER DOWN ON THIS PAGE below the rates. ABOUT 1 INCH BELOW THAT THERE IS A LINE THAT SAYS 'CLICK HERE for more photos and information'. CLICK THERE and then click on RESTAURANT REVIEWS or the THINGS TO DO pages.

My teenage son once walked up the stairs to the living room and said 'This place just makes you smile!'

I still think OUR GUESTS SAY IT BEST:

'We loved the outside shower, complete wtih room for dry clothes and towels! Very kid friendly, my 13-month-old niece could wander around and the gates kept her safe. Topsail itself is so peaceful. We went to the sound side a few times to fish, canoe, and take the baby swimming. We golfed, ran, sailed (you have very nice neighbors who invited us!), and fished from the surf (caught sharks, stingrays, and a few fish). Such a great house -- plenty of space, well decorated, and everything you need in the kitchen for eating in!' Bonnie VA

Jim Murray from GA agrees wholeheartedly:

'My sister and I are both recently retired school teachers. For over 25 years we have talked about renting a beach house on the North Carolina coast, big enough to house all of our families. ... This house was everything we had dreamed about. It was RIGHT ON THE WATER,...

'Setting on our porch, we could watch the sun rise each morning. In the evening we could drive to the end of the island and watch the sun sink into the ocean....I bought 5 kites and one day we all spent the day flying them. ... We enjoyed the secluded walks on the beach and the discovery of hundreds of sea shells. We saw dolphins swimming by several times. The only regret we had, was that we couldn't stay for another week.'

We have added a 42' FLAT SCREEN TV in the living room and NEW FLAT SCREEN TVs in the master and 2 queen bedrooms, and there is a large TV in the bunk beds room. Ill post pictures soon.

BEDROOM SETUP: Top floor: QB & Full Bath. (There is also a QSS but it's right in the middle of the living room); Middle floor: KB, QB, 2BB (i.e. 4 beds), and BB with 2 Full Baths. There is a deck on both floors and there is an enclosed outdoor shower on the deck of the middle floor. The bottom floor has 2 full car garage, grill, and storage space.

Why Steve Morrison chose Surf City

We absolutely love Surf City. But Seas the Day is so beautiful itself. The colors seem to bring the outdoor yellows of the sun, the sky's blue, and the ocean's greens inside. This is a totally relaxing beach house. The ocean breezes, the salt air, and the wonderful people make this a great place to be.

All the ladies agreed that this was the best place we’ve ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

My gang of friends and I have gone to several different beaches together; there are usually 6 to 8 of us. All the ladies agree that this was the best house ever! There was plenty of room for all of us, it was absolutely charming, and oh so comfortable. We had an absolute blast. We took advantage of the beautiful upper deck, and walking on the beach looking for sharks teeth and shells. We cooked every meal in, and there was plenty of dishes and pots and pans. The only suggestion we had is for the window seat nook near the kitchen. It’s a great place to read a book, and a few throw pillows would make it more comfortable. Thanks Steve, for such a wonderful weekend at your lovely cottage. We raised our glasses and gave a toast to you and your wife!

Simply a beautiful home, Just perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our small family stayed there with our labrador. The home was huge and well appointed and from what I counted could have slept 14. We chose it for its perfect location. Steve the owner was very informative and provided us with all the details we needed for a great stay. We left a few takeout menus in the kitchen drawer. Every place we ate at was really good. The views from the upper deck were gorgeous! The beach was really pretty and had nice surf. We could hear the waves crashing on the shore from inside, was so peaceful. This was our very first trip to the island and we just loved it. We drove down from New York, myself, my husband and my 16 year old daughter. We were visiting my son who is in the navy and currently stationed with the marines at Camp Lejuene. He drove every night to the house and left in the morning to go back to base. He enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs Queen bedroom and was so happy to be able to relax a bit. My husband and myself tok the master downstairs and my daughter chose the queen on the other side of the jack and jill bathroom. We all had so much room. The beds were really comfortable and that was a welcome surprise. The house was exactly as pictured and even looked better in person. The decor was perfect for a beach house. We enjoyed the large TV in the main living area and the open concept of the top floor which made it nice so family could all be doing different things yet we were all together. I cannot say enough about this gorgeous rental. There was nothing we needed at all, the house cam with everything you could possibly want. Thank you again for a memorable stay.

Wonderful family gathering place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered Christmas afternoon in a great place to play, eat, catch up, walk and talk. Seas the Day has a gorgeous view out front, an expansive view of the ocean. One morning we watched over 30 dolphins frolicking about, along with myriad seagulls and pelicans. Although the weather was cold, we had a marvelous time. We weren't able to get the coffee maker to work, but Steve, the owner, responded quickly to tell us where the spare one was. He was a friendly and helpful host. Thanks for a great time, in your beautiful beach house!
