About Ken Sachs

2nd floor deck off kitchen/living area overlooking Atlantic on Thanksgiving 11-26-09. Sunny & 65 degrees. The beach is great any time of the year. You've got the whole beach to yourself! 11-27-10 update...came back for 2010 Thanksgiving and we got into the 70's-the weather was great again!

Ken Sachs purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Ken Sachs chose Topsail Island

After searching up and down the southeastern Atlantic coast we found the perfect spot to buy our '2nd Home' to get away from things. Surf City (Topsail Island) provided peace and tranquility and 2 hours from our main home. Unlike many of the other alternatives Topsail was less commercial (traffic) and developed, but there were still many conveniences within 5 minutes. Beaches were not crowded no matter what time of year. There are plenty of other options besides going to the beach (i.e. fishing, golfing, tennis, biking, etc.) but we never get tired of the beach. There is also a good assortment of restaurants with very affordable price ranges, and if you get tired of going out you can always pick up fresh seafood from 'The Crabpot!' Our beachhouse is our sanctuary and provides the 'therapy' we need to get away from it all.

What makes this townhome unique

Never bored. Watch the sunrise (or moonrise) from the privacy of your own deck or bedroom. Walk the beach. Fish. Swim. Sun. Run. Take bike-rides (island has bike lanes). Eat. Play monopoly or cards. Watch movies. Surf the net. Shop. Do NOTHING!

Beautiful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this home while attending a wedding nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beach house. It was so close to the beach which was what brought us here to begin with! The house had everything we could need. Extra towels, bedding, washer and dryer, and any kitchen items you could need, as well as, beach items that were also able to be used. The house was well kept up and you could tell this as soon as you walked in. The view of the ocean from the upper balcony was breathtaking and made my morning coffee extremely enjoyable. There was plenty of room for 7 adults and one baby. We really enjoyed our trip and the house we chose to stay at. I would highly recommend this location for anyone to stay.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip here and certainly won't be our last. The condo was beautiful and the view was spectacular! It was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The beach was amazing and you are truly just steps away. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!

Another lovely visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Almost Oceanfront. This property continues to be the favorite for our family. The property is clean, well maintained, and everything we could want in it's location and proximity to the beach! This was our 8th summer at Topsail. Staying at Almost Oceanfront just makes it that much better!

Our second visit won't be our last!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this property. We love the proximity to the beach. The property itself is well appointed and comfortable. This property also provides linens which is uncommon at Topsail and it is a huge help! It makes such a huge difference to not have to drag linens to and from home. We look forward to booking this townhouse again.

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time renting this home and it worked out great! We usually stay in the South end of the island, but this location was even better - very close to all the surf city restaurants/shopping. We had 6 adults, 2 children and 1 baby. The space was plenty, no issues. We do cook a lot and there was plenty of kitchen accessories, plates etc to get by. It's not as much as you would have at home, but enough to get by for the week. The view is the best part, looking right over the ocean. You do have to cross a small road to get to the beach, but you are oceanfront!! Also the home had a lot of beach toys for the kids, so we didn't have to buy any! The only negative is the community pool is small and the chairs were in bad shape. Whoever is in charge of the condo association should look into upgrading the pool area. Overall great place and the dive bar next door is a nice place to have a cold one. The best restaurant on the island is Beach Shop Grill, but it's on the South end of the island. It's expensive, but well worth it. Also a good half day trip is taking a boat taxi to shell island or renting jet ski's. Fun Fun!! We will consider this property again in 2017!

Awesome Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing hidden treasure!! The Island was adorable, so many fun things to do, the ocean was beautiful and the Condo was AMAZING!!! Everything in the condo was top of the line. Beginning with the Gorgeous kitchen, outfitted with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, to each beautifully decorated bedroom, with comfortable beds and numerous flat-screen TVs, to the spacious, well maintained bathrooms. The Ocean View was Stunning, and we loved checking out the local activities, such as the Turtle Sanctuary. We would definitely recommend trips to this beautiful island and stays here, thanks to the fantastic accommodations. The only problem we had was the fact that we had to leave.
