Why Madonna Das chose North Topsail Beach

We loved the beautiful uncrowded clean beach. The local people are so friendly and helpful. We have made many friends over the years. It's a great place to relax and get away from it all. It's a great family place.

What makes this condo unique

We like strolling the beach for shells and shark teeth. Swimming in the Ocean and pool. Visiting all the great resturants in the area. Shopping at the quaint little shops on the Island.

Dated, but clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The location was great, and the apartment was clean and pretty well-equipped. Kind of surprised that we had to provide our own trash bags and toilet paper, but that certainly wasn't a real problem. Owner great to work with. Decor is dated and beach equipment is in poor condition. Also light was out near the elevator which made it a little scary to walk there at night. But we would definitely rent here again and appreciate the value for the money.

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from VRBO many times for many years and I think this was my best experience! Ms. Das was such a delight!!!! The condo was immaculate and had every thing that you could even imagine that you would need. The layout is perfect for families and has lots of privacy between the bedrooms. The beds were very very comfortable! Incredible ocean view from living room and bedroom! I don't think I have ever stayed so close to the ocean! The sound and view was the best ever!

This was our 5th trip to Topsail Beach and our 2nd time staying at Shipwatch. My husband and I absolutely love Topsail. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful place to vacation and what makes it even better is we found the perfect accommodations. This condo unit is the perfect location and has everything we need. Ms. Das is always so nice and so helpful. The photos were spot on! We love our morning breakfast on the deck while watching to dolphins follow the shrimp boats. It doesnt get any better. We look forward to many more visits to Topsail and Shipwatch will be our accommodation of choice.
