Village of Stump Sound House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Come relax for a week and discover one of North Carolina's best kept secrets. Topsail Island has been our families favorite vacation destination for over 25 years. We like the uncrowded beach which makes for great sharks teeth and shell hunting. Waking up to in the morning to see shrimp boats just off the coast followed by dolphins is a treat for both young and old alike.

Our beach house has many extras... All bedrooms have their own deck access with fabulous views. Each bedroom has cable color TV. Four kings and one bunk bed... All of which are comfortable. Private back yard with a picnic table near grills. In addition to a fully-equipped home, we also have a portable crib, junior bed - both with linen. There is a high chair and booster seat along with small children toys and games.

E-mail us for additional photos and floor plan.

Information on restaurants as well as a multitude of activities available on Topsail island, Snead's Ferry, and Wilmington are available in our guest information notebook.

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful beach house vacation. This by far the nicest rental property we have stayed in. Our family thoroughly enjoyed this week and we look forward to staying here again.

We recently stayed in this home. This was the best vacation rental that we have rented. The house was amazingly clean and well stocked. We had a nice ocean and sound view. It was a short walk to pool and beach access. The owner was extremely easy to work with. The home was in a quiet residential area with a beautiful uncrowded beach.

Everything you need, good beds, linens

We stayed at this home two years ago and due to family deciding on another location had to move down the beach. I have MISSED this house ever since. You will compare everywhere you stay to this place. I have three children under the age of 6 and it is so well equipped for them and cooking for larger families. Jean is a fabulous owner and we hope to use the place again.

Exceptional Beach House Rental

  • 5 of 5

"Medicinal Use" was a wonderful beach rental in a cozy neighborhood - with a community pool as a great bonus. We found it to be even better than what was depicted in the photos and description. I give high marks as a rental recommendation. The owners are so easy to deal with and so helpful, answering all questions quickly and fully - a renter's dream. The house was very clean and well maintained. Every amenity in the kitchen, excellent charcoal grills, lots of sleeping space and wonderful open kitchen/dining area on the top floor. Only a very short walk to the beach and pool. Harris Teeter and Food Lion a short drive away. Our family vacation week was all that we could have hoped for and we'll have so many happy memories to savor. The setting provided every comfort for either a large or small group. I was with my daughter, her husband and his parents, and our two year old grandson. He loved playing with all the toys provided, inside and on the beach. Great beach and deck chairs for the grownups. Our favorite spot was the ocean view deck - sea breezes and sounds of the surf. Unlike most houses, this one has a covered area for shade as well as open areas for getting some sun. On the back screened in deck we enjoyed sunsets over the marsh - awesome! I loved beachcombing for the flat pebbles here and brought home several pounds in assorted sizes and colors - my souvenirs of Topsail now sitting in a glass fish bowl. We saw real fish and more at the Fort Fisher Aquarium, south of Wilmington. It's over an hour's drive away, but a fun outing on a rainy day. We hope to return to "Medicinal Use" some day to make more happy family memories.

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week here with another family- 6 people total. The house was more than we expected- we definitely overpacked! There were so many things we brought that were provided! (should have paid more attention to the list) The house was perfect- spacious and very well maintained. The layout is great- everyone had plenty of room. The decks were so inviting, many mornings spent on front deck with a cup of coffee- beautiful! The boys had a blast with all the beach toys and we enjoyed watching them from the chairs under the umbrellas provided! Will definitely be back for more Medicinal Use!

It keeps getting better...

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at Medicinal Use twice over the last 4 years, and the ammenities keep getting better. The owner has thought of every little detail. It feels as if you are staying at your own second home when you visit here, just stock the cupboards and you're good to go. The house accomodates 10 people very comfortably. Everyone can gather together in the spacious kitchen/great room or find yourself a quiet place to relax on a deck or in a bedroom. The beach is wonderful, and the pool is a great diversion. Great location for a quiet beach vacation with family and friends. Can't wait to go back.
