Topsail Island is a family oriented area... with tons of family activities! Kayaking on the sound, parasailing, windsurfing, bicycle lanes, and sidewalks for walking and running... A wonderful beach to escape to. Quiet, calming to the soul, as if you have your own personal island to retreat to!

About our home: Sparrow's Beach Nest is located just five blocks south of the stoplight once arriving on the island. This allows you enough distance not be in the midst of the traffic, yet you are able to walk to restaurants, coffee shops, the ice cream shoppe, the grocery store and the pier, if fishing is on your mind!

Breathtaking views from the third floor/primary living area with a very large back deck full of comfortable lounging chairs, rocking chairs and a table for snacking or eating outside. The second story back deck is covered and has several adirondacks, several rocking chairs and two swings allowing for the comfort of the shade, amazing views of the ocean all while watching your family on the beach below. Stairs on the back-side of the deck carry you down to the sandy beach...

The primary living area features the kitchen, a seated bar area(4), a large dining table for family gatherings (8) along with a smaller dining table (6). The family room has DVD, VHS and expanded cable. Not that you'll be inside to enjoy the TV too often!

The kitchen is fully stocked - just like cooking at home! And, you will find that we have included two high-chairs and two booster seats in the dining area for those with young ones...

A full-bath is located on the third floor. We have a queen bedroom and a crib, that makes sleeping convenient for those wanting the main floor to themselves late at night! (and for those needing to keep a close eye on their young baby!)

The second level houses two master suites with doors opening onto the back deck. A sneak peak of the ocean and several rocking chairs await your visit... A third king size bed and a bunk/trundle bed with a full mattress and two twin mattresses are also found on this floor and share yet another full bath.

Another Master/King bedroom is located on the ground floor with a private bath... This is located on the backside of the first level and there is a exit door for a quick beach escape!

Just outside the exit door is the outdoor shower and changing room. We have parking for up to four cars in our driveway with public parking close by for any additional cars or friends that may visit.

Sheets, pillow cases and kitchen wash rags and towels can be included with this rental.

Why Lisa chose Topsail Island

We had been vacationing and visiting with friends on Topsail for years. We found a house we loved and took the plunge! We just love the being on S Shore Drive, the second street with slower trafffic, that enables you to walk to and from the grocery store, the restaurants and the pier.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing... great nieghbors... Our home away from home!

Needs better frying/sautéing pans, as well as more silverware (forks and spoons).

  • 4 of 5

View of the ocean is fabulous but home itself seems to have been neglected. In first floor bedroom the lamp by the ocean side has a connection that is falling off, there are no usable chairs to bring down on the sand and steps on boardwalk down to ocean have been covered over in part by sand making it difficult for very young and older guests to navigate. For all the wonderful positives of this home and for how much it costs to rent, all seem to be minor things that should be easily remedied.

Owner's Response: Marcia - Thank you so much for letting us know the spoons and forks are disappearing! The pots and pans have been ordered and the owner's are thankful for your feedback. They have have done quite a bit this spring and the interior paint job will be finalized next week. The town just pushed the sand so we will be sure to have that corrected. You know, most owners do not have beach chairs for tenants to use due to the liability. Everything rusts so quickly here that you cannot count on them remaining safe for folks to use. I'm sure you understand! We hope you will come back again!

Perfect Thanksgiving Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My children, their spouses, and my grandchildren spent Thanksgiving week with me at the beach. All 10 of us had a great time! There was plenty of sleeping space for the 7 adults and 3 kids. More family joined us on Thanksgiving Day, so we had 19 for dinner, still with plenty of room for all! The hot tub was enjoyed all week, and the weather even cooperated beautifully. A week just wasn't long enough - no one was ready to leave!

A truly comfortable time

  • 5 of 5

Our family (16 of us) stayed at Sparrows Beach Nest the week beginning July 4, 2015. The house was ideal for us with plenty of room to gather together and have time alone. The kitchen was very well equipped with lots cookware, plates, cups, tableware, etc., to easily accommodate many tastes. The rooms were comfortable, the air conditioning functioned well, and when one of the fans decided not to work, it was repaired immediately. The upper deck, off the living room/kitchen area, had plenty of chairs for morning coffee and evening libations, not to mention a great view of the ocean. Definitely recommend Sparrows Beach Nest as an ideal place for your beach time.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sparrow’s Beach Nest the first week in October 2014 and had a fabulous time. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 2 small children.

The cottage was wonderful and worked perfectly for everyone, giving us both privacy and great living space. We especially loved the decks!! The shaded one (2nd floor) was what we needed for the sunny days and the top one was great at night. Usually a 2nd floor deck of a 3 story cottage has a view of sand dunes, but not this one. The beach and ocean were in clear view and there was a nice breeze - making it my favorite location!

The outside shower right by the ground floor entry was perfect for getting the sand off the little (and big) ones after being on the beach all day. Yes, we were on the beach in October. It was warm and the water was just right for swimming.

And last, but definitely not least, Lisa was immediately available all week ensuring we had everything we needed. She even called her family veterinarian to secure an appointment for our dog who injured her knee while playing on the beach. That sealed the deal for us - she is awesome and treats guests like family. We will definitely be back to Sparrow’s Beach Nest!!!!

We thought this year we would spend Thanksgiving on the beach for our big family, so we were looking for a place were we all within travel distance and let me tell you-we were lucky!

The house was outstanding, clean, beautiful well equipped -Lisa made sure we had everything at the house so we could enjoy the house , enough pots and pans, dishes! The best part is that she called to make sure we were happy and if we needed anything! I look forward to our next visit! Thank you Lisa for going that extra mile, you are the best!
