Why Madonna Das chose Topsail Island

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.

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.

family vacation

  • 4 of 5

we had a great vacation at the condo. The view was fantastic. You could sit in the balcony and watch the waves. Elevators and the luggage cart were a great help to carry all our luggage. We were two couples and the bedrooms were quite far apart so there is complete privacy. The furniture was very comfortable. I would recommend the condo for a family.

A great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children and my mother and father in law vacationed for the third time at Topsail beach. This was the first time in this condo. We had plenty of room in the condo...never getting in each others way. The pictures are very accurate. Also, there are many comforts of home in this condo....plenty to cook with, comfortable furnishings, and a wonderfully awesome view of the beach. Ms. Das was extremely helpful in answering our questions...she was only an email away and was very prompt in getting back with us. We hope to stay at your place at Shipwatch again. Shipwatch is very close to Food Lion and several restaurants. The people that we met were very nice and friendly. I would recommend this condo and beach to a friend. Thanks Madonna

We Love Topsail - 1308 Shipwatch Condos

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel to Topsail every year in the Spring. After reviewing our options, we decided to stay 1308 Shipwatch. When arriving, the first big perk was the elevator to the 3rd floor. In past years, we have had to hike up many flights of stairs with luggage which is no easy chore as you get older in life. Shipwatch is great because you have your own private entry way (all of which is totally covered so no exposure to the elements. The first thing that greets you as you walk through the door is the beautiful view of the ocean. Madonna has everything you could possibly need at your disposal. My husband goes through "flat screen" tv withdrawal and it was great to know he would not be in pain this week. Also is the great WI-FI service (so easy to connect all of your electronics to keep you in touch). The condo was very clean, the beds were comfortable and one of the largest condos I 've had the pleasure to staying at on Topsail. The weather was totally uncooperative our week (we have been going to Topsail for the past 12 years and this is the FIRST time we have every had such horrible weather (cold, almost gale force winds, totally uncharacteristic for the last week of April) but we had plenty of other opportunities to go to the North Carolina Aquariums, to explore Wilmington, Beaufort (a MUST SEE - we have wonderful personal pictures of the Banker ponies on the Rachel Carson Reserve Island across the inlet!) and New Bern. Madonna left no logical or needed amenity from the condo. The condo has sliding glass doors in both the living room AND the master bed room and the crashing waves were so relaxing! With the extraordinary high waves, there were plenty of surfers at Surf City Pier on Sunday and we were happy to just sit there for hours watching them hone their skill. We will be back, Madonna to 1308 and again, thank you -- you are a gem to work with! (Maybe we will get to use all of your beach gear for sitting on the oceanfront next year!)
