Well maintained and great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach view/access. The house was very clean and well appointed. The elevator, layout , and amenities made it suitable for a multi-generational family group. We loved it!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a beautiful week at Flip Floppin' with six adults and four children ages 4-9. We've been coming back to this location for several years and already scheduled our week for 2018. Since my husband and I are 65+ the home is perfect for us. It has an elevator that makes taking all the stuff upstairs very easy and it does not require much of a walk to the beach. I like a lot of things about the home but the raised deck chairs on the top deck are my favorite thing. We started each day on the deck in those chairs having coffee and enjoying being oceanfront. Our children and grandchildren love coming here and think of it as a home away from home. The owners are very responsive and keep the home in great condition. It has everything you need to enjoy a perfect vacation in the perfect place!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great beach spot, great views from decks and inside. Plenty of room, all the necessities. Kitchen and living area are perfect for a family(s) that wants to mostly do beach activities and eat in. Way better than a hotel.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Flip Flopping is delightful! We had a wonderful time while staying in Surf City. The beach is beautiful. We met a lot of local folks who were delightful.The house is everything the owners said it was. Clean, beautiful and right on the beach! Totally enjoyed starting our day watching the sunrise and ending it drinking wine while the moon lit up the ocean. Great place! Will go back! We especially love that the area is low key and not a tourist trap.

*Phenomenal* Home / *Phenomenal* Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Thought I'd submitted review last year, but apparently was remiss and did not, which is especially mortifying after how incredibly gracious the owners of Flip-Floppin' were to us! We vacation on Topsail every year and this is definitely our new FAVORITE rental!!!

After one night at a different, smaller rental, we realized there was severe mold and other issues requiring us to vacate ASAP. We searched frantically for another place to stay, which is not easy on a Sunday when most homes on the island are managed by property mgm't companies. Our luck drastically changed when we got in touch with the owners of Flip-Floppin'; they were, quite simply, a Godsend. Their warmth, kindness, and compassion for our situation completely erased the chaos of the prior 24 hours. Not only did they confirm the house was available, when they couldn't reach their cleaning person, they drove the hour+ from their home to clean it themselves and deliver the contract, etc. We are so grateful to them for saving our vacation, and also the opportunity to meet them - it's an added bonus knowing the owners of the house you're renting have good energy and infused the place with love.

As for the house: WOW! Seriously, could not ask for a better home! Not only is it up-to-date, comfortable, clean, and kitchen appliances/utensils well-stocked, there is ample room for everyone, easily allowing several to have privacy or to gather together in one room. We had four adults and three kids in our group and we all agreed it was THE perfect set-up.

The elevator and the two car garage and a BIG PLUS. The kids enjoyed turning the bunkbeds into forts, and we all enjoyed just relaxing and listening to the ocean. For those not familiar with the area, there is plenty to do within minutes of the house. We always enjoy the Sea Turtle Rescue, Bingo night at the lodge, and purchasing fresh seafood to cook. A day in Wilmington is recommended as well - so much history to soak in, yet a cool, artsy-vibe as well.

Can't say enough good things about Flip-Floppin' and the owners. If it's available, book it and get ready to enjoy!
