About Bruce and Laurie Hofmann
Our family is from the great State of Montana (Big Sky Country). We moved out to the east coast several years ago and completely fell in love with the ocean! We have been vacationing up and down the east coast for the past 15 years. When we discovered Topsail Beach we knew we found the best balance of beach and activities for our family. 2019 is our first year as beach home owners and first-time renters. With advice from friends, we are now listing our beach home on HomeAway and VRBO. In the process we hope to maintain better oversight of our beautiful beach home, as well as provide a better welcome and stay for our guests. In the process we will get to know you a little in order to provide you with the things you might need in order to ensure you have a great stay at our home.

Why Bruce and Laurie Hofmann chose Ocean City Beach
We have made some great friends who live or vacation at Surf City/Topsail Beach. We have been vacationing with them for the past six years and completely fell in love with the Island and its great activities to recreation balance. All the people that we have met are super nice. The beaches are uncrowded and close. Plus, there are some fun shops to visit and great restaurants.
What makes this House unique
Great sunny house corner location with wonderful ocean views and sound views. We fell in love with this house the first time we entered it. With a few upgrades and some decorating the place has become the “happy place” that my family enjoys. The home is truly comfortable. I hope your family find it to be your comfortable “happy place” as well!

End of Summer Getaway
We were looking for a quiet place to get some last minute sun and surf before back to school started and this was the perfect spot. With most of the country in school already we had the beach basically to ourselves. We spent hours in the surf which was a 3 minute walk away. The house was perfect and had everything we needed for cooking and relaxing. Strongly recommend it.
Perfect home away from home
Our family (grandparents, daughter, and children ages 2 and 4) stayed at this very comfortable home. The location is about 10 minutes from Surf City, and it's an easy walk across the street to the private access to the beach.
The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need to prepare meals, even for a crowd.
The owners have provided everything to make your stay easy and comfortable - from nightlights in bedrooms and bathrooms, to a gas grill, beach toys, a cart to carry items to the beach, beach chairs, and boogie boards. They even have a nice selection of books, games, and movies if you can't be on the beach.
The owners are very responsive, and answered all our questions very quickly. They are very organized, pleasant, and accommodating.
I highly recommend this property. We'd definitely stay here again.
The overall house was decent. But I encourage the next renters to document every detail of the house by means of pictures and videos of the property when you check in and when you check out. I was accused of things that I know to be incorrect/false/straight out lies. I am not sure why other than to keep the deposit and/or collect on a insurance claim.
We've shared our home with over a dozen families over the summer without one issue. We were shocked and so was our cleaning service at the condition of our home when this family left. Furniture was removed and left outside, four quilts were stained, there was evidence of drug use in the house and fish blood was all over the fridge which required numerous cleanings. We enjoy sharing our home, this was an unfortunate event with disreputable people.
Enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay and the recommendation for the crab pot, we enjoyed being able to sit on the porch and eat it.
We were very impressed with this beautifully decorated home, in a great location, with all the supplies we needed for a wonderful week at the beach.
