Why Mario DeAngelo chose North Topsail Beach

We searched the NC coast for 18 months before deciding on NTB. The combination of limited public beach access and virtually no commercial propertis ensures limited access to the beach.

What makes this house unique

We have tried to equip the property with what we want not just what is necessary for rentals and visit 9-10 times per year to monitor maintenance to insure your satisfaction.Fully equipped kitchen.

Great place to stay. Loved the house.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the location. Quiet beach and beautiful view of the ocean. The owners are extremely hospitable people and responsive to any needs we had. First time in several years I would want to rent a place again.

Wonderful family Thanksgiving!!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this so all my children and grandchildren could gather in one place and we LOVED it! The views are spectacular, and the kitchen was the most well stocked I've ever seen. We made Thanksgiving dinner for 24 and had every pan and tool we needed. The elevator was a great help in unloading the car and for some stair challenged elders who came to Thanksgiving. The owner is very responsive and was a great help in arranging linen rental when the first company never responded. Would definitely recommend this, especially for a large group. We had lots of YOUNG children, so the stairs were scary at first, but there were baby gaits, and all went well.

Owner's Response: Thank You!! We have been renting since 2003 and when we started we thought of what was not there when we had rented a beach house and tried to make sure if we needed it, it would be there for you. We have also tried to be responsive to input from repeat renters and that's why we put the elevator in. Hope to have you again.

Thanks for the Dish Pan Hands

  • 1 of 5

We arrived on Saturday only to find that there were not enough beds for all of our 14 travelers, despite the advertised "sleeps 15". It only has actual bed space with linens for 13 people. We immediately contacted the owner and were directed to a rusted, fold-up, military-style cot we found in the corner of an upstairs bedroom covered in dust and cobwebs. (And a pack and play for an infant, which we did not have). The linens we rented for this "bed" sat folded for the duration of our stay and were a waste of our money.

The bbq was on the top deck and was so rusted out that as we carried it down to the ground level where it belongs it disintegrated.

On our second day we realized the dishwasher was not only physically broken, but was also not attached to the cabinets in the kitchen. We contacted the owner upon this discovery.

The next day we got a new bbq but had to wait for a repairman who then told us the dishwasher would not be fixed for at least 7-10 days. We spent the next 12 days purchasing paper goods and washing dishes.

I would not recommend Tides N Knots to anyone. The property owner was not very friendly when we contacted him to report these findings and having to coordinate sleeping arrangements due to lack of bed space made this vacation very problematic.

Owner's Response: The beds they "found" were exactly what is stated on the site as being available. There are 5 BRs with queens, 1 BR designed for children with a pyramid bed that has a double on the bottom and a single on top and a cot. There is also a pack and play. The linens I had nothing to do with as the renter wanted to get them on her own and ordered them herself. Things can become damaged so I checked the cot when I arrived and it was neither rusted or dirty and I took a picture of it. I was not aware there was an issue with the grill and when I found out I immediately ordered them a new one telling them they could use the owners grill if they would like. This group arrived Saturday afternoon and had a checkin form that everyone receives asking them to do a walk thru and report any issues. I received an email time stamped 11:33 Sunday night stating the dishwasher was broken, since this was a day and a half after they arrived I did question that. I ordered service on Sunday night and the serviceman was there Tuesday. I was originally told it would not be until Friday and worked to get them someone quickly.. My service man who was there Monday and found that they had actually broken the handle off he could not fix it. They don't mention the drawer that was broken that they asked him to fix that they did not report. He did a temporary fix but would not return because he said he felt threatened by the renters behavior. I came in to follow up on these issues and called the dishwasher repairman who "could not get the part" and told him I was there and he said he would pick it up the next day. He said someone had really yanked on the handle hard enough to break it off and pull it out from the cabinet. I checked with the previous tenants to see if they had ANY issues with the dishwasher and they said it was fine. The tenant requested that I reimburse them for over a hundred dollars in paper plates that they used but claimed they did not even open the dishwasher for a day and a half.

Tides N Knots was just what we needed!! A nice clean house, right on the ocean!! The elevator was an added bonus in getting everything upstairs!! The decks were great for relaxing with a drink after a long day at the beach and for watching the dolphins!! We saw lots of them!! Great restaurants were close by and lots of activities on and right off the island!! Even had an a skating rink that brought back memories of being a child!! We also enjoyed crabbing and fishing off piers close by!! The owner was very helpful and honest!! My husband lost his wallet on our last day! we were devastated!! But before we could even get off the island, the owner called me and said housekeeping had found his wallet!! What a relief!! If you are looking for a big, clean, house right on the ocean, Tides N Knots is right what you are looking for!! We will be back for sure!!

A Tranquil Thanksgiving at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

From the moment our family arrived at Tide 'N Knots until the moment we departed each and every one of us were in a total state of relaxation.

The property is ideally suited for a large group and even though our party consisted of 8 people and 3 dogs we all had more then enough personal space to do our thing.

The ocean front views are awesome and easily viewable from the various living areas and the dual decks. Those decks have plenty of space to stretch out with a good book and either soak up the sun or lounge in the shade.

North Topsail beach is ideally suited for walking with pets and nowhere near crowded.

Based on our overwhelmingly positive experience, we have already booked a return in 2014!

Vacation, Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

OMG, we had a magnificent time!

A more than charming and spacious beach home, Oceanside, right in the midst of ultra relaxation. This home is extremely well equipped, beautiful views of the ocean, plenty of room for dining with the family. Cup of coffee on the deck, taking in the view and beach breeze first thing in the morning. The deck is fantastic for relaxing with your favorite beverage, mine a mojito with extra lime and mint leaves, say about 2 pm. Then the after dinner relaxing with your favorite wine, of course, on the deck again.

The loggerhead turtles nest right on the beach and one evening I was able to see a hatching. More than awesome! Takes some patience to wait, for it was 11:30 pm when they hatched, but I had brought my beach chair for the wait, and out marched 86 loggerhead turtles straight to the ocean. And yes, I counted them one by one. What a show it was!

During the week .... Pelicans, Sea Gulls, Osprey plus many other birds. Beautiful beach walks. Watched dolphins from the deck. Wonderful beach access any time of the day and evening. Lots of room for family games, tv, and the use of a hot tub, too. Plenty of parking. Easy walk to view a bay dock and see some of the wild life on the bay side as well.

We found beach life in style at this home. It was a great getaway with family and friends, we all had an exceptional time! Lucky enough to be at the beach, lucky enough ... yet being Oceanside in this particular home was like "Finding the Beach Lottery".
