|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Large (approx 900 Sq Ft) great room/kitchen area seats 18 w/o extra chairs. House almost 2500 SQ Ft.
2 ocean front decks with furniture, hot tub, and hammock, one open/one covered, and sound view covered balcony w/chairs. Fully equipped kitchen w/appliances and Calphalon and stainless steel cookware.
This house was built in 1998 and completely remodeled in 2007. Zoned A/C an dceiling fans in every room. 40' TV in great room (1 of 3 TVS in house).
Great fishing in Surf and Sound. 6 golf courses close by.
Living area including kitchen and dining area has beautiful full ocean view. Every bedroom has either an ocean or sound view.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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!
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".
NTB is adding a second location for kayak access to the sound. A second play area is also being planned.
