Answer to Prayer is an airy ocean front home that is just the ticket for enjoying Topsail Island up close and in style.
The house accommodates up to 8 guests with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Answer to Prayer is located in North Topsail Beach just over the High Rise Bridge to the island and a short drive to downtown Surf City for shopping and dining. A pet friendly, smoke free refuge for you, your family and friends is waiting.
You'll love the mornings. We like to get up early with a steaming cup of coffee and sit out on the deck. It's so quiet, but the beach is waking up. The waves crash on the shore, sea gulls gawk at one another.
A flock of pelicans come 'floating' on the winds as they cruise the beach looking for breakfast. The morning sun warms us up.
My husband decides he wants to go for a ride on his bike. He heads south on the bike shoulder lane waving at the friendly islanders driving in the early morning. After a good run to the southern part of the island, he gets off at the point to smell the jasmine and salt air.
As he heads back, he stops at Seas the Day, a beach house owned by a friend of ours in Surf City. We have friends staying there who have come to Topsail Island the same week as us. After he greets them and visits for a while, he invites them to the barbeque we are planning that night.
While he is riding on his bike, I decide I will take a quick dip and swim a little. The water is chilly at first, but then the Caribbean kissed waters seem to warm up. After a workout, I climb back on the beach and then to take a shower. I decide that I will lay in the sun later. But first I want to do a little shopping at this absolutely darling clothes shop in Surf City.
I could go on and on about how much you'll enjoy Answer to Prayer, but I invite you to come and make your own vacation.

About Darlene Thompson
Roger and Darlene are from Gahanna, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. Roger is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and Darlene is originally from Indiana. Growing up without a North Carolina beach. We love Topsail Island. With the stress of life it is great to get away with friends and family. We have two grown children who also enjoy joining us at the beach.
Darlene Thompson purchased this House in 2005
Why Darlene Thompson chose North Topsail Beach
After sending our daughter off to school at UNCWilmington in the fall of 2005, we decided to look for a vacation rental in the area. Really just out of curiosity. Being from Ohio this beach is a real treat and being an architect I wanted a house that was architecturally exciting. One of our dear friends had purchased a house and a duplex and told us about Topsail Island,and how quiet and not crowded it was. Well I feel in love with 'Answer to Prayer' in September when I came up for a parents weekend. We waited until March to make an offer and it was still on the market ( in 2005 things were moving a lot faster). We really felt our prayer had been answered when price was reduced, we both were in agreement and the house was available. We have had fun painting and decorating and relaxing with our friends on the deck. Many of our families who stay come back year after year, treat the house as it was their own and call it home. We hope you will enjoy our home too. i hope you will too.
What makes this House unique
The house is kid friendly with gates for the stairs going down to the beach and to the driveway. Also suitable for keeping dogs on the deck. We provide a high chair and games and DVDs. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan as well as A/C for upstairs and down. Turtle watching is also quite common in this section of North Topsail Beach.

Beautiful home with clean white sandy beach front. The home is prettier than the pictures.
We really enjoyed the sweetness of this home. We had cold and windy March weather, but I could enjoy those beautiful rugged waves, and paint them from inside through the big front windows. (Yes I covered the table with a table cloth :)
Everything was clean and lovely. Lots of cooking utensils. Bring your own salt, spices, ... dish det., dish cloth ... t.p. ... sheets.
Thankyou for sharing this beautiful home with us. We were so blessed ... it really was an Answer to Prayer.
Glad you had a nice stay , Do you sell your art work? I might be interested
in having one for the house if it has to do with the ocean.
Beach Front Home
My husband and I had a very peaceful and relaxing stay at this beach front home. We enjoyed walking on the beach, finding shark teeth, and watching dolphins swim along the shoreline. We would highly recommend this rental home and plan to rent again.
We are so glad you like the winter months at topsail. I love looking for sharks teeth as well. We would love to have you again as our guests.
A lovely home and gracious owner!
Thank you so much for accommodating our familys winter reunion post deployment! Many answers to prayer were celebrated!
Glad answer to Prayer was able to accommodate your family and one of our marines. We are so thankful for our military. Hope to see you back!
This home was very comfortable and enjoyable. It was great to kick back and sit on the deck and watch the ocean and the sea life. We also enjoyed walking out the back door and strolling along the beach.
We are so glad you got to enjoy the simple things in life. We enjoy strolling down the beach too!! Hope to see you back again.
Only 45 min from historic Wilmington NC. Tour the WW2 Battleship North Carolina.
