Why Steve Morrison chose Ocean City Beach
We absolutely love Topsail Island. Being on an island, the ocean breezes, the salt air, and the wonderful people make this a great place to be.

A nugget of paradise
Steve was on top of things from the get-go. It was everything he said it was going to be. Topsail/Surf City/N. Topsail is TOO CROWDED! Building on top of building - and building more! No grocery stores or gas stations on the island. Wide range of zoning codes allowing trailer parks next to condos next to second row rental houses. But this democracy allows lots of variety in REALLY GOOD restaurants. From sushi to French to Italian to fish markets, you can’t go wrong. The Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue is crowded (1600 visitors on limited days), but well worth it! My dog, Murphy, and I profoundly enjoyed the 5am beach walks where we only encountered other dog walkers, solitary writers getting their best 6 pages down for the day, the tracks of turtle moms planting their eggs, and gorgeous sunrises. Steve made all this possible with an aging but well thought-out duplex that delivers old world beach houses beautifully preserved in the modern over-populated world. It truly is a nugget if paradise.
Definitely a Breat of Fresh Aire!
This was our first time staying in Breath of Fresh Aire. The check in process was easy and Steven was always quick to respond to any questions I had prior to our stay. We absolutely loved being able to step off the deck and go down a few stairs and set up our canopy. We are definitely spoiled now! The place was clean and was very comfortable. It was not the best place to ride bikes which is something we love to do when we are in TI. We felt uncomfortable with the cars zooming by us when we would ride. The house itself was homey and had all the conveniences of home. However, the bed in the master was not very comfortable. We didn't get much sleep during our week stay there. Also my husband had to fix the door to the 1/2 bath cause it was about to fall off the hinge. One of the doors to the washer and dryer was completely off and set up against the wall beside the washer. But even so, we have decided we will definitely be coming back!
We loved the “breath of fresh air!”
This was our fifth year staying at Breath of Fresh Air. We look forward to coming here each year and enjoying the ocean as our backyard! Steve responds promptly to our questions and the property is incredibly peaceful and clean. We had yet another wonderful week enjoying the fresh air and sand between our toes. Thanks so much, Steve!!
Spring on the Beach
The location of the condo was wonderful, very peaceful setting that offered very little traffic on the beach. Weather was perfect and the view of the ocean was beautiful. Despite a little inconvenience of no air due to a broken A/C , it was a very delightful stay. The A/C was fixed the day we left and through no fault of the owner, the impact of the hurricane last year left the HVAC people overwhelmed.
The cleaning crew could have done a better job with the sinks and bathtubs, but overall it was a wonderful experience.
I am so glad you were our guest. Yes, the hurricane hit the area "twice". By that I mean, there was the initial damage to the area, but along with hurricane Michael (which hit the FL panhandle shortly after Florence hit here), the damage on both areas has greatly drained the available workforce. Vendor's can't find people to hire so they are overwhelmed. The only AC guys in town, Gideon HVAC, only has 1 technician for the entire island when they used to have 4 or 5. So when the AC went out, we had to wait for a week until their one guy could get there. But Connie was a true winner and was very understanding. I do hope she comes again.
A glorious Week
My daughter and I enjoyed our stay. Steve is a great guy and responds fast. Could not get closer to the beach if we tried. I highly recommend staying here and cannot wait until next year. Our dogs loved the water as well.
Heaven on the ocean
You cannot get any closer to the beach then this! Steve's place (A Breath of Fresh Aire) is absolutely beautiful with stunning views from every single room. You truly get to see GODS creation. The place was spotless and you would never know this place is pet friendly. Our puppy fully enjoyed it just as much as the rest of us.
Steve is very helpful and prompt and always available to contact. He truly has a gem in Topsail. Thank you Steve for a much needed trip for our family in a place that felt like home. We will definitely be returning.
Thank you so much for the kind review. Please visit us again.
