Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised and the location was supreme. Close enough to good restaurants yet secluded enough that we felt like we owned the beach (at least during this off season time).

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Plenty of room. Nice covered deck outside. Right on the beach - always the best choice! We bought fresh fish from Surf City Crab every day and made dinner at home every night. Had plenty of dishes, forks, etc but will say if you need a sharp knife you might want to bring your own. Oh and so since linens aren't included don't forget that dish towels are considered linens, lol! Totally slipped our mind, so paper towels were our friend. Also, outside the house, check out Fractured Prune for donuts (yummy!) and the little taco shop attached to the surfing school across the street from Daddy Mac (good fast fresh food and beer too!) and of course also check out Daddy Mac for a great view while having a bite to eat and a cool Corona!

Wonderful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our time at this house. It was clean, comfortable, and felt like home - only better. It was so relaxing, just what we needed.

The layout was great, the kitchen well stocked with everything you need, and the beach was perfect. The sunrises were spectacular, and we got to enjoy watching the dolphins play. I regret not bringing my binoculars and the longer lens for my camera.

We rented our linens thru Sweet Dreams Linen Rental and they were great.

The next time we are out that way, this is the first place I will look at to rent. We could not have been happier with our stay .

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!
