Property description

Imagine what it feels like to be up in a osprey nest looking down on the water and scanning the horizon. That's the feeling you'll get in Topsail's own 'Osprey Nest.' Once you walk up to the 'Ospery Nest,' through thick and lush foliage, you are literally looking down on the water and you might even see a pirate ship in the distance! There are so many windows that you'll feel that you're sitting on the beach, but you'll be in air conditioned comfort instead. Surrounding the hub are the living room, dining area, master bedroom, and bedroom #2. The home is tastefully decorated throughout with plenty of comfortable and beautiful places to sit and watch nature in all her glory. 'Osprey Nest' is located in the northern part of Topsail Beach, not far from shopping, restaurants, parks, and piers. You'll have the time of your life at this charming cottage.

Topsail Island: The island consists of three towns, North Topsail Beach, Surf City, and Topsail Beach. The two mainland towns of Sneads Ferry and Holly Ridge complete the section known as the Greater Topsail Area. Two bridges allow access to the island, a landmark swing bridge on NC Route 50 to Surf City, or by NC Route 210 over a high-rise bridge nearer to North Topsail Beach.

History & Museum Information: Topsail Island was used by the U.S. Government as a secret missile test site. The project, called Operation Bumblebee, was responsible for the development of the ram jet engine, a major breakthrough in the field of aviation. The concrete towers still scattered about the island were observation posts for the project. The Topsail Island Museum Missiles and More offers many displays, artifacts, and exhibits from prehistory to the present.
Topsail Island is a nesting ground for the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. These giants of the sea come ashore between sundown and sunrise and build their carefully constructed nests from mid-May to mid-August. The nesting females leave a distinctive pattern of flipper marks in the sand which should be reported to the proper authorities. The nest sites must be left undisturbed to incubate for 45 to 90 days at which time the hatchlings will emerge to begin their journey to the sea.

Climate & Activities: The climate in the area is typically seasonal and generally mild. Summers are warm with lots of bright sunny days that are great for all outdoor activities. Winters are short and mild. Spring averages a temperature in the 60’s with scattered showers ending as quickly as they start. Fall brings cool sea breezes and an average temperature of 65 degrees. Activities are abundant on and off the island. Swimming, sun bathing, surfing, shells and sharks tooth hunting, dolphin watching, golf, deep sea charter fishing, fishing piers, surf fishing, jet skis, parasailing, miniature golf, go carts, waterslides, kayaking, scenic boat tours, scuba and snorkeling, sailing and motor boating in the sound, Intracoastal Waterway, or the ocean. * Winter Special* $595 a week for open weeks through February 2013.

Car: Recommended

Topsail Beach is located in between Wilmington NC and Jacksonville NC. It spans 26 miles with the Ocean on one side and the Intercoastal water way on the other. The Island features only one stop light. It's the way the beach is supposed to be not commercial. So if your looking for a family beach this is the right place.
