About Lynne Dillard

Hello, I am 'Nana's' daughter. I live in Graham, NC which is about 3 hours from the beach. My husband and I are continuing 'Nana's Dream'. We have one daughter who is married and one son who is engaged. We also have a wonderful grandson and beautiful granddaughter. We love spending time at the beach with the family. Nana isn't able to come as much now and we do miss her being with us. Her favorite thing to do while at the house was to read while sitting on the top porch and catching the breezes and watching the ocean.

Why Lynne Dillard chose Surf City

We feel in love with Surf City more than 40 years ago, when there wasn't very much on the island. My mother always dreamed of owning a house here. She sold her family home to by this beach house and when looking we knew right off that it was the one for her. Her family home was the Jones family home and this beach house sits at the end of Jones St.

What makes this house unique

Along with my family and friends, I love to spend lazy days on the beach or reading a good book on one of the porchs. I hope that you will love to spend some lazy days enjoying my second home as much as I do.

We were looking for a 4 day beach trip. Lynne accommodated us. Short walk to beach access, views of ocean from balcony. This place was clean and ready! I'll be saving this home for our next trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks. On Saturday, I removed the wallpaper boarder in the hall bathroom and painted it the same color blue as the front bedroom. We are always trying to make improvements when able. Look forward to having you return.

Nana's Dream was everything I hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay here at Nana's Dream! My husband, teenage daughter, and I met my parents here for a vacation. I haven't been to the beach with my parents since I was a little girl and this trip made me feel like that again! I haven't seen my dad have so much fun in years. We were all impressed by how clean and comfortable this house is and the views are amazing!! We loved watching the sunset from the back porch! And the short walk to the beach was so easy! This house is perfectly located and has all the amenities you need for a lovely beach vacation! Thank you for sharing your Nana's dream with my family and making our dream a reality! What a blessing this vacation was for us! Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you had the chance to make new memories with your family at Nana's Dream. One of our friends down the street was telling me what a nice family you were. We are so blessed to be able to share our home with such nice people as yourself. Hopefully you will be able to come back again.

Magnificent Memorial Day

  • 5 of 5

Our Memorial Day weekend stay at Nana's Dream was great! Topsail is one of our favorite North Carolina beaches and we were really pleased to find such a wonderful vacation home to stay during our recent trip. The home is in a great location. Very convenient walk to the public access to the beach. (Maybe a 3-5 minute walk). Views from the front porch (especially the top deck) of the ocean are amazing. Views from the back deck of the marsh and waterway are just as beautiful. The home is very well stocked. Beautifully decorated. One feature I truly appreciated was that all linens were provided!!! The home is clean and cozy. Nan's Dream is a great place to stay while visiting Topsail.
