Beautiful OCEANFRONT FOUR BEDROOM house is perfect location to host memories for a lifetime. Nestled on a premium stretch of beach dotted with private homes, this three story gem has fantastic views from both upper and lower decks.

Perfect location for an EXTENDED WINTER VACATION, Contact us for special rates for rentals of more than 1 week.

Bottom floor has double enclosed garage and entry. First floor has open living and kitchen area with wall of windows looking out on sparkling waters. First floor access to the kitchen and living area is a feature MANY oceanfront homes don't offer. You don't realize how nice it is until you don't have to walk up three flights of stairs every time you go from the beach to the living area. The upper floor has 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are oceanfront. Bedroom doors open to expansive deck that has 180 degree view of Atlantic. Free Wi-Fi throughout..

See the sunrise from your pillow. Watch for the pods of dolphin that run in the early morning and late afternoon. Fresh seafood can be purchased on a daily basis from the local fishermen who bring their hauls in and sell them at the market next to the drawbridge 3 miles away. Walk for miles in either direction on the beach. Look for prehistoric sharks' teeth and shells. The sound is just a walk away and provides amazing sunset panoramas.

The towns of Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington( international airport) are less than an hour away.

The only drawback to this house is that you'll never want to leave.

About Paul Graupner

We are British ex-pats who used to vacation on the island many years ago when our children were little and we just keep on returning! Now we are empty-nesters and have bought a house so we can keep visiting this gem of an island. We have always loved being on the water and smelling the salt air and knew that one day we would buy a house here. We visit as often as we can and are very hands-on to ensure that the property is well maintained and in super shape!

Paul Graupner purchased this house in 2005

Why Paul Graupner chose Surf City

When we discovered Topsail Island back in the 90's we knew it had everything we wanted... beautiful quiet beaches, plenty ( but not too much) to do, good restaurants and a laid back atmosphere with close proximity to Wilmington. We purchased this home because the island remains as quaint and as unspoiled as it was back in the 1990's and the house is just beautiful! We love the tile/wood floors, the large windows, the decks, and the views! The house is clean, uncluttered and a lovely place to relax.

What makes this house unique

Quaint quiet town with private beaches. Soft sand with plenty of sharks teeth, warm waters, beautiful sunrises, and dolphins swimming past.

The house is just lovely and the multiple windows/doors give great views even from inside! The living area is NOT on the top floor and you don't miss a thing ~ other than tired muscles from going up and down stairs all day.

True to its name!

  • 5 of 5

True to its name, Escape Hatch is a departure from reality. This lovely home sits along the North Carolina shore with expansive views of the Atlantic ocean. We really enjoyed much that this house and town had to offer. The accessibility to the beach for our walks along the shore, the furnished decks for viewing dolphins and shorebirds, and the unobstructed morning views of the sunrises helped melt our stress away. During the off-season the weather can be chilly and rainy, so we found ourselves inside more than a typical beach stay. But this house did not disappoint. Escape Hatch was welcoming, clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable! The kitchen had plenty of dishes and a large dining table for the entire family to share meals together. The house was also stocked with boardgames and books that were perfect for family fun or some quiet time. We found the enclosed garage/wet-entry to be a big bonus on those rainy windy days! We enjoyed the quiet that the off-season brought as we explored some local Surf City and Topsail Beach businesses that remained opened. Last, but certainly not least we found the owners to be wonderful to work with! They were very responsive, thoughtful, and kind. A true escape!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay over Labor Day! Thank you so much. The house has the perfect set up right on the beach. Was really nice having main living space on the first floor so you aren't going up and down stairs a ton. We had some technical difficulties with the tv and the owners were so quick to respond and help us figure it out. Thank you! Hope to be back again!!

Clean and Close!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Escape Hatch! The home was clean, open and super close to the beach....literally steps away! This has been our favorite house so far. Views of the ocean from every front room of the house - gorgeous! ( We were surprised it did not have an enclosed outdoor shower as most beach homes do; read that wrong in the house details. Wondering if the owner is considering adding one with hot/cold water before next summer?) That was the only thing that was missing for our family - love full shower outside before we go into the house. Kitchen and house well stocked with cooking and beach necessities. Bathrooms very nice. We used a linen service for the bedding; beds were comfortable. Enjoyed the deck chairs. We liked the house location, not too far from the main intersection where we ate at a few of our favorite restaurants. Thank you Paul and Sharon for sharing your lovely home on Topsail Island!

Great memories at awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

Great layout for several families or one large family to enjoy at one time. Everything you need is there plus more! If sand isn't your thing but sun is, lounge on the 3rd floor deck. 2nd floor deck is awesome for day and/or night get together; watch storms roll in and/or people on the beach. The kids enjoyed the games, cards, videos and beach toys almost every day. Spacious and comfy bedrooms! Excellent setup on the 2nd floor where the kitchen, dining and living areas are all open. Had a blast and look forward to coming back next year! Thanks for sharing your home with us :)
