This house rents from Saturday to Saturday during the summer.

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.

About Lisa

Rusty and I live dead center between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill. We love spending time on Topsail Island with our family! Just a 2.5 hour drive door-to-door...

Lisa purchased this house in 2001

Why Lisa chose Surf City

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!

Perfect for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful trip. The cottage is fully stocked with everything we needed and is perfect for accommodating large families! We had 10 adults and 5 kids under the age of 5 and the house was perfect. Everyone had their own space and we never felt like we were overcrowded. The bedding, furniture, baby crib, high chairs were all in great shape. We loved the location. We could walk to the pier, shops and restaurants. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. The perfect place!

Comfortable house in excellent beachfront location

  • 5 of 5

The house is laid out well with 3 floors of living space. The bottom bedroom has total privacy and then one bedroom on the "living" level by the kitchen which was also great. Any issues we had during our stay were taken care of immediately by the property management company with ease. GREAT home for a big group family vacation!

Great location. Great set-up. Great beach access.

  • 4 of 5

Listing was not clear about sheets and towels, which should be included as part of price. Bathrooms needed trash cans.kitchen needed new utensils, etc. other than those little items, which would make it pefect, house and beach were great. Location perfect. Plenty of living space. Great deck. Great deck chairs. Would stay there again.

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!
