Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Looking for the perfect getaway? Stress literally melts away as you watch the sun rise or the moon set over the Atlantic. Enjoy a parade of dolphins with your morning coffee from a deck just a stone's throw from the beach. Or, simply unwind with a fine merlot under the brightest stars you've ever seen.

Escape to Sur La Mer, your own private resort nestled on the beautiful white sands of North Topsail Beach. You'll be swept away by the comfort, beauty and serenity of this oceanfront home.

Exquisitely designed, Sur La Mer offers 6 spacious bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. The first floor features three oceanfront bedroom suites, all with queen beds, top of the line bedding and custom window treatments. And, all with direct access to the oceanfront deck offering a stunning view of the Atlantic, the surf and the beach.

This floor also offers a bedroom perfectly designed for children. With two sets of bunk beds, a day bed, and TV/VCR/DVD, kids absolutely love this hideaway from the adults. We have also provided an X Box and PS2 with several games.

And a fifth bedroom offers a double bed and two additional twin beds with a perfect view of the sunset over the Sound.

The beauty of the reverse floor plan is further revealed on the top floor, where you'll discover panoramic views of the ocean on one side and the inter- coastal waterway on the other. In the luxurious oceanfront master suite, you'll enjoy furnishings reminiscent of the British West Indies, a private bath, sitting area and TV/DVD. Coupled with the soothing ocean breeze, this suite provides comfort and serenity for even the neediest vacationer.

The vaulted common area features an English antique pub table that seats ten and a large island for your party to gather around. The gourmet kitchen, with top-of-the-line stainless appliances and solid surface counters, will make vacation mealtimes a simple pleasure. Then congregate, dine or just relax on the broad Trex deck listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean or the separate Onkyo 500 watt digital sound system with outside speakers.

We offer TVs with expanded cable in every bedroom, with HD channels and a DVR reserved for the master bedroom guests. Wireless internet access and free local and long distance calling are also provided.

Sur La Mer features covered parking, wet weather entry, a hot/cold enclosed outside shower and private beach access.

Don't settle for cramped 'Coach' class condos or duplexes when you can vacation 'First Class' at Sur La Mer.

About Kristin DeBates - Owner

Hi and welcome to our site. My name is Kristin and I am pictured here with my husband Tom and our two sons, Tanner and Stefan. We live in a suburb of Atlanta and absolutely fell in love with North Topsail a few years ago and decided to make the investment in our home away from home. We hope that you will consider our home as your vacation destination.

Kristin DeBates - Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why Kristin DeBates - Owner chose Topsail Island

You can't beat North Topsail for the beach! The views of the ocean and intercoastal are amazing. The dolphins parading at 9:00 am was a big crowd pleaser as well. And, you can't forget the sky and the stars at night. What absolute beauty! We take great pride in keeping our home clean and well-maintained. We also provide personalized attention that is difficult to get when dealing with a large agency.

What makes this house unique

When we vacation, we leave everything behind. Our home is perfectly situated to relax and just spend time with family. You can walk to the pier and fish, you can surf or play golf at a few different courses nearby. When you vacation here, you are dealing directly with the homeowner. We pride ourselves in offering a home that makes you feel comfortable, yet provides a little bit of luxury. And, we love dealing with our guests. Just read our reviews!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the pristine beaches of North Topsail and hope you will enjoy our home.

A perfect place to relax and enjoy summer at the shore!

  • 5 of 5

The spacious design of the home is perfect and it is very comfortably furnished. The grandchildren had the bunk room which was situated so that there was enough space for them to play on the floor uninterrupted . Each day there was the difficult decision to make ............sit on the deck and read or visit with family ..........sit on the beach and read or visit with family ....... comb the beach for shark teeth and shells ....... perfect! The evening brought the excursions on the beach to watch the ghost crabs or walk out on the fishing peir. Food Lion and Harris Teeter were close-by. The open-air fish market was as well and had a huge variety to select from! We all would have liked to stay another week! We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and a 70th birthday..... perfect. We can say it truly was "finest kind" as we say here in Maine.

Perfect Family Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year coming to Topsail and our second year in this house. We love it. It accommodates our multi-generational family perfectly. The beds are comfy, the outdoor shower is private, the beach is amazing and private (plus it's dog friendly). The kitchen is well stocked, we even baked while we were there. Watch the sun rise over the beach and the sunset out the front door. What more could you want?!

Pictures don't do this place justice

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this house. It was paradise. We had a college reunion there in September with five couples and we had plenty of room to spread out when we wanted to and come together for meals and gatherings in the big living room and kitchen. The views of the Ocean are spectacular from almost every room and the multiple decks. We had a blast at the volleyball court in the backyard. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook for a big group. And the ocean is literally just steps from the back door. No hotels in the area so it's not crowded at all. As a runner, I could run for miles on the beach and hardly see a soul. We will be back!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sur La Mer! We've rented a lot of beach houses over the years and this one was our favorite by far. The view of the sound side from the front of the house is as amazing as the ocean view from the back of the house. The location could not have been any more perfect. The house is beautiful, very clean, the kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are super comfortable, and Kristin is wonderful to work with. We have three children under 5 so the close proximity to the beach was also great. We will return again next year!

Annual Topsail Summer trip

  • 5 of 5

This home is one of our favorites. We have been coming to TI for nearly 20 years and have rented many homes; Sur La Mer has just the right amount of space and amenities for our families. I think this was our 4th or 5th time staying here. Kristin is wonderful to work with and is quick to answer any questions. The house is always clean and the kitchen is well supplied. We were pleased to find so many left spices and extras that we rarely had to run to the grocery. There are plenty of utensils and things you don't find in other homes. We did a few roasts and were surprised to find a meat thermometer. You wouldn't find that in other places. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of room for all with lots of seating around the table. We visited the turtle hospital in Surf City on Monday. Be aware they have limited hours and the wait can be quite long standing in the hot sun just to get in; not easy on little ones or elderly. We did learn a lot about the turtles and this year we were delighted to witness sea turtles hatching just a few houses down. We also watched dolphins from the covered porches. It was super hot outside so we only used the volleyball court once. If you are looking for a home away from home, a place for all ages and a place with plenty of parking, this is the place to rent.

The serious golfer will enjoy trying 5 different courses, all within a 60 minute drive - one 5 star course is within 10 minutes! Also, for the fishing enthusiast, you can enjoy deep sea fishing on one of the local charter boats, And, for the ladies, there are several quant shops locally and Wilmington and Jacksonville offer malls and plenty to do
