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.

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 objective is -- Relax, enjoy family and friends and have a great stay!

About Kerri 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 Smith purchased this house in 2007

Why Kerri Smith chose Topsail Island

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!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. The condo was clean and more than enough room for 6 adults and two large dogs. I loved being within a minute walk of the beach and the fact that the beac was not crowded in the least.

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in a great spot, on the north end of the Island. The house was great, although some minor repairs probably need to be considered (porch and steps). Overall, my family and friends found the house to be perfect for the weekend stay. There is a cool little dive bar within walking distance called the Fat Turtle. Good drinks, cool atmosphere, a lot of military personnel, good times. The only issue I had, issue probably being the wrong word, is the distance to a grocery store. If you decide to stay here, I’d advise stopping on your way to the house, because we hit some nasty traffic trying to load up on supplies. Lastly, the beach is eroded on the Northside of the Island, so during high tide, you may need to drive to a beach access. During low tide however, it’s almost like a private beach. Oh, and don’t try to access the beach directly across the street, the people who live there are not friendly at all. Overall, it’s hands down a 5-star location. Kerri is also great, she is very prompt. Can’t ask for much more. I’d highly recommend this beach house.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you all had a good stay. Since Saturday is turn over day for rentals, it is best to bring some basic essentials and then go back to the grocery store later in the evening or early Sunday. We get to our house once a year and in between hope that our guests will let us know if there are any issues. We like to address repairs in as timely a manner as possible.Thank you for renting Beach Sounds!

Awesome place to enjoy great times with friends.

  • 4 of 5

Beach Sounds is a great place to go to enjoy the ocean. It has all of the comforts of home, but the scenery of a post card. I hope to go back again.

great pet friendly rental just steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for a birthday getaway with my husband and our dog! The location couldn't be beat... just steps from the beach (beach access was one block away). We enjoyed the views of the ocean as well from the living room room window (which could even be seen while lounging on the back porch too). The rental had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable/comfortable, we especially enjoyed using the grill on the back deck for an al fresco lunch and dinner. Kerri was very responsive and couldn't have made the rental process any easier! We can't wait to visit again in the future.

Lovely beach house with great nearby fishing

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect weekend on North Topsail Island! Kerri was always very responsive and easy to communicate with. Everything in the house was as described, and Kerri's instructions made the check-in/out process very smooth. My husband and I went with another couple, and we were able to bring our dog as well - the house was just right for us and in a great location: short walk to some great fishing spots, and about a 5 minute walk to beach access. We loved it and we highly recommend this beach house!

Large fishing pier and golf courses are nearby. Miniature golf, jet ski rentals, bike rentals and other activities are a very short distance from the property. There is a boat launch area under the high rise bridge off of Hwy 210, located near the North Topsail Beach Town Hall/Police station.
