About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Beach Sounds, a pet friendly home. See beautiful sunrises and sunsets and enjoy family time.

The home is located in a very quiet, peaceful area at the north end of Topsail Island. Come along for a tour of the house.

All sleeping quarters are on the second floor and include a master bedroom with Juliette style balcony and views of the ocean. The master has its own full bath, walk in closet and dresser. The Master has cable TV. There is another full bath on this floor and each of the other 2 bedrooms have a dresser and closet. All bedrooms have queen sized beds. We offer 2 pack and plays for vacationers with infants and toddlers, as well as booster/high chair that attach to dining room chairs.

On the first floor is the living room and dining area with views of the ocean, cable TV, WIFI, DVD and stereo / CD. Right off the dining area is a lovely screened room with bar height table and chairs and a nice seating area for reading or catching up with family and friends. Beyond this there is a large deck, a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning while planning your day or relaxing with a cool drink after some summer fun. In the evenings, enjoy beautiful sunsets here while dinner cooks on the BBQ.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans, dishes/glassware and utensils. Kitchen also has a dishwasher, electric range, microwave, coffee pot, toaster oven, blender, crock pot and full sized frig. A laundry room with a half bath on the first floor completes the tour.

Nearby is a town park with basketball, volley ball nets, horse shoe pit and tennis courts. There is a nice playground for younger vacationers or the 'young at heart'!! An 18 hole golf course is approximately a 10 minute drive away, with practice range and putting greens. Fishing is close by, either at the Seaview pier or a quick walk to the New River Inlet. Nightlife is about a 15 minute drive into Surf City, further South to Wilmington or North towards Jacksonville.

If you just want to stay in after a day in the sun, the grocery store and local seafood market are close by to get dinner fixings. After a good meal, have some good old fashioned family time -- there are board games, playing cards, etc. The main thing -- Relax, enjoy family and friends and have a great stay!

About Kerri and Jim Smith

My husband and I grew up on Long Island and we enjoy all water activities and the beach. Although we love the mountains our hearts are near the sea. We have grandbabies now and have had them with us the past few summers at the beach. We look forward to our yearly 'family reunions', each one is better than the last.

Kerri and Jim Smith purchased this house in 2007

Why Kerri and Jim Smith chose North Topsail Beach

We visited friends who own a second home here and instantly fell in love with the area. There are no big crowds, it is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle, plus the water temperature is absolutely wonderful, up to 84 at times during July and August. The beach is never crowded, always room to spread out. We look forward to trips here as often as possible at any time of the year. Each season is wonderful and has something to offer.

What makes this house unique

Rest, relaxation, peace and quiet and cook outs with our friends and family. Shrimp and other seafood are the best. Seeing beautiful sunrises and sunsets and walks on the beach are great ways to enjoy some of the things Topsail has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved our stay! It was the first time we had Jax on the beach. The area has little traffic, great house, and easy beach access - it was perfect for all of us. You have been so easy to work with and have made our trip stress free and relaxing. We would love to do the exact thing all over again for next year-same week!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a slightly older home that is showing a little wear, but that in no way detracts from the great views and great location of this property. We loved the screened in porch and deck, and the wifi service was excellent. Nicely furnished, and all in all we enjoyed our stay very much

Great location clean home and wonderful getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house is at the northern end of North Topsail so it is quiet peaceful and lovely. You are directly across from the ocean and can hear the waves crashing from your balcony. But you do need to walk down several houses to gain beach access. The home needs a little upkeep but it's clean and comfy. It's great to cook in the house but you do have to drive to restaurants or shops. Overall a great stay and we would definitely return.

Great time!

We all had a wonderful vacation. This property allowed us to have a vacation, but feel like we were in a home rather than a hotel. Thanks!
