About The Owner

I like the Topsail Beach because it is close to Wilmington for night life and our house is in a quaint little village setting. I bring my three little children and wife and we have a great family time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Village of Stump Sound

It is close to my home and Topsail island has beautiful beaches. It is a nice get away from the everyday hustle and it is a family oriented beach.

Great place for being close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time staying at Annie's. It is a driveway away from the beach so very easy access in a nice community. Not far from Surf City restaurants, and 50 minutes into Wilmington for sightseeing.

it's for sale - lets hope the new owner fixes up the place

  • 2 of 5

We found 18 damaged items when we checked in. Screens ripped off the screened in porch. Screen door bent. Toilet paper holder ripped off wall. Several cracks and divots in the wall. We had to have housekeeping come back twice because the place was dirty. Carpeting was full of "owies as my grandchildren called it. Plant from outside that sticks in the carpet and you can't get them out.

Owner was very apologetic and reacted quickly to housekeeping issues.

Refunded my security deposit quickly.

Owner's Response: What Steve is referring to as "owies" are Sandspurs that are common in this area. Sandspurs are dried pods of sans weeds/ grass that are like little dots of Velcro. These sandspurs stick to your shoes and tracked in to the house and stick to the carpet. It is hard to vacuum them a few get stuck to the carpet and we have to manually remove them. These are common in beach area. They had found some in our carpet and I agree with him. After fall season you will find them in beach housed in these area. Steve rented the house in December and we had few storms before there arrival and there were some damage to the screens on the porch. When they called me about the minor items I immediately sent my housekeeper / maintenance people twice to address there concerns and to make my renters happy. In February/March of each year we inspect the entire house and fix any issues and spring clean the entire house (Paint, replace any missing items, repair, Steam clean twice a year) to name few items. Also we maintain and repair though out the year as some renters damage the house. The housekeeping occasionally may miss some things but our house is clean and well maintained.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying here. The beach was so close and really great. The water is shallow for a very long time making it great for the kids to play. There was a turtle next just 50 yards down the beach - it did not hatch before we had to leave though. The area is private and very relaxing. We did have to purchase a new charcoal grill but that was not a big deal at all. The pool was great for the kids. Their is a Turtle Hospital nearby and we were able to see turtles released back to the ocean during our stay. I will say that Topsail is not a very developed island. Everything is located over the Surf City bridge and traffic can get a bit backed up in the evening. Overall, I would highly recommend the experience of the island. Abdul, the owner was excellent to work with. We had to contact him once to fix the lock on the door and he had a locksmith at the house in no time.

Great place and lovely beach with some minor hiccups

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and clean. The location was excellent. The beach was not crowded since there are no houses behind this house. It was also close surf city and other things to do. The house was ok. The ac went out but he had portable units. This also seems to be a common problem down there and it was quickly fixed. The stove too had only two burners that worked. Other than that we had a wonderful time.

Overall our family enjoyed our stay except not as clean as we expected.

  • 3 of 5

The furniture was dirty and the carpet needs cleaning. I spoke to the owner about the insects. Not sure we will come back.

Owner's Response: The carpet by the front door entrance and the stairs entrance is the heavy traffic area. The carpet will be replaced with laminate floor after the season. The Carped was steam cleaned in Late May and we will steam clean it again in Late August/September.
