About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

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 Topsail Island

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.

Paradise right outside your door!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends just visited topsail island for the first time and has the pleasure of staying at this amazing house. If you are able to stay here you will not be disappointed. The house is modern and very clean. The views are absolutely stunning. Nice central location to restaurants and grocery store. I definitely see myself coming back and staying here again. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. Highly recommend!

Beautiful, comfortable, clean, modern, well-equipped home, right on your own private beach. Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just had the BEST week staying in your wonderful home!

Firstly the owner was so accommodating throughout the whole process. Easy to communicate with, informative and very helpful.

Second, the house is just amazing!! Clean, well equipped and very well decorated. It has everything you need for the week, and we really liked the large dining table and the comfortable beds. We suffer from allergies, so the lack of carpeting and the cleanliness of the house was most welcome. The fact that it is not a reverse floor-plan was a bonus and saved our legs from aching! Sitting on the middle deck, in the most comfortable raised chairs, watching the world go by was the most relaxing thing to do. The upper deck is great for sunbathing and reading a book.

Thirdly the beach was gorgeous! Breath-taking views, stunning sunsets, long walks, collecting shells and sharks' teeth. The ocean had just the right amount of waves and the water, even for April, was not too cold! Most days we had the beach to ourselves, except for the visiting dolphins and the night walks on the beach watching the crabs were most fun! The house has an assortment of beach toys and boogie boards and there are chairs on the lowest deck that we took onto the beach to sit on. The outdoor shower was a blessing for our sandy feet!

Lastly the location is perfect. This house is a real get away! Surf City and Topsail Beach are close by and both have places to shop and eat but remain small and un-spoiled. A 5 mins car ride gets you to a Walmart or 7 mins gets you to a Harris Teeter. Wilmington is less than an hour away and we loved it so much we nearly went back the next day, but the beach was calling.

Thank you "Escape Hatch" for a wonderful week, even the weather was beautiful, and we shall see you next year.

The perfect "escape hatch" to rest, relax and be!

  • 5 of 5

Visiting from UK, this has been our first visit to the Escape Hatch and I hope the first of many. The beach house is modern and very well appointed. There is really nothing you could want for. Large, light, bright living space with stunning ocean outlook. Kitchen has all the equipment we needed to self cater for the week. Generous sized and comfortable bedrooms with breathtaking views and balcony access from 3 of them looking out across the ocean. We enjoyed time sat out on the deck, playing games on the beach and splashing about in the sea. Stores and restaurants in Surf City and Topsail are a short drive. Historic Wilmington region was a worthwhile day trip and we enjoyed the Karen Beasley Turtle Rehabilitation Centre. Be prepared to queue when you go! It is very popular. Our week has been the perfect escape and we are sad to be leaving this morning. One week isn't long enough! You can be confident in booking Escape Hatch. We have loved every minute!

Amazing View and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beach house over my spring break with a few other of my friends. When we arrived the house was spotless and we couldn't believe the view. You simply walk down the steps and the ocean is right there. We enjoyed walking on the beach and talking to others who lived there full time as well as other people renting. Everyone was welcoming and very friendly! Also, there are tons of great sea food restaurants and other local shops. I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a great time at the beach.

Perfect family vacation by the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home for a large group!

Paul is very communicative and kind, right from the time that we made the reservation thru our arrival at their home and our departure.

We were a group of 6 adults and 2 kids - 6,5 years and 8 months old respectively.

The home is just beautiful. Let me start from the garage and go up from there.

It's a nice 2 car garage which closes nicely - this was important for us because we love our cars to stay clean. The garage also has beach toys which you can take out to the beach very easily from around the house without needing to go through the house.

The garages open into the ground floor where you can leave your shoes and other stuff so the house stays nice and clean.

The living level is very spacious and has a very nice balcony with lots of deck chairs to just chill and listen to the ocean. The kitchen is well equipped and the fridge is big enough to store food for 6 of us. The dining table is large and seats 8 people easily. There was a tv, dvd player and a music system which we didnt use too much, but it seemed perfectly good stuff.

The washing machine and dryer were just fine and very useful. From the deck on the living level, you can walk out to the beach from the stairs. There is a shower and pipe on the stairs, halfway up which is really helpful as you come back from the beach.

Upstairs, the bedrooms were great. The master is very spacious and 3 out of the 4 bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows that view the beach, and you can sit out on the upper deck which is just breathtaking anytime of day.

Finally- the beach is amazing and we spent tons of time there and just loved our time at this beautiful home!

We will come back as soon as we can.
