About Darlene Thompson

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 Ocean City Beach
After sending our daughter off to school at UNC Wilmington 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.

Answer to Prayer was the perfect house for our family. I loved the location and the house was just perfect. It was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.
Great Time at The Beach
Its hard to beat being right on the water! Beautiful views & beaches. Thanks very much!
I agree totally. Being on the beach is the best!
What a great house! The view is awesome! We were overjoyed to find out ahead of time the house already had a high chair! If you want a great view and beach access easily this is the place to be!
I am glad it worked out well for you. I have a picture of the high chair, glad you could use it.
We had such a wonderful time at Answer to a Prayer; the house was clean and had everything we needed. Beautiful view and gave us so much relaxation and lasting memories.
Glad you had some good memories to keep.
Spent a wonderful spring break with my entire family.. even on the rain days we enjoyed the view and the comfortable space!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Answer to Prayer. The large deck was perfect for reading, napping and enjoying dinner to the sounds of the ocean. We felt spoiled by the private beach access. Our family of four had plenty of space and the high ceilings made everything feel open and bright. The wall of windows offered a perfect view of the ocean even when inside. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed for cooking in a few nights. We would definitely stay at Answer to Prayer again.
