Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our first time down in the Surf City/Topsail Island area- had a great time at Baxter's Bunker. Very good location on the beach- far enough away from the Pier where it is fairly quiet. The 3 bathrooms and two decks were great for the family. Beautiful sunrises in the morning. During low tide, there was a small pool of water our little one could play in which was great. The house has all the necessities for the kitchen. The owners were very responsive and helpful. You do have to purchase linens for the property which is known upfront- didn't really like that the company makes you strip the beds and put all the linens and towels by the front door- you figure for the price they could do that. Only thing that we thought would be a good addition to the house is some rocking chairs on the decks but that is just a personal preference. The house is located right on the beach and near the sound as well- we were able to do some kayaking and paddle boarding which is very close by. There are good restaurants and fish markets very close by. The owners leave an information sheet in the house with different recommendations. Everyone in the area seemed to be very friendly. Great family vacation!

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we were looking for in a beach getaway. It is literally on the beach. Views are amazing. The house is spacious with large upper and lower decks overlooking the ocean. Kitchen is nicely appointed with full fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher etc. and plenty of counter space. There is a small charcoal grill on the deck along with an outdoor shower and deck chairs. Washer and dryer. It sits on a quiet and beautiful section of the beach but is a very short convenient drive to the grocery store, restaurants, bank, activities like boat rentals, surf lessons, paddle boarding etc. We would rent this place again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words and for choosing "Baxter's Bunker" for your vacation! One point of clarification...The grill on the deck was probably left by a previous guest as our insurance carrier does not allow us to provide a grill. It is suggested by the Town of Surf City Fire Dept that no grilling occur on the decks of homes on Topsail Island.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Can't complain. House is perfect location far enough away from public beach access that we basically had the beach to ourselves. Had a great time. Thank you!

The house is newly renovated and was perfect for our group of 10.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st experience with VRBO and it was fantastic. The accommodations were perfect, the town has everything that you could ever ask for. Minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, and the pier. We needed a minor repair and it was handled in an hour. Highly recommend Baxters Bunker!
