About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20+)

The Beach Dome is oceanfront property with a breathtakingly gorgeous 4 story geodesic dome located on the north end of Topsail Island, between Jacksonville and Wilmington, North Carolina. 3500 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 4 baths.

Walk out the doors of the covered 2 story decks, along the private elevated walkway over 100' of stable dunes, down the steps and you are on the wide Atlantic Ocean sandy beach.

You have all the comforts of home - but home never felt or looked like this dome! A vacation dome designed especially for multi-family groups, large families (like grandparents and parents and kids and grandkids) or 5 to 6 couples. The dome has many private spaces in which to retreat along with a 2 1/2 story living/dining room and an open kitchen area large enough to accommodate several cooks and foster togetherness.

Inside The Beach Dome, you'll view the ocean through a 40' panorama of huge triangle windows-- or from the skyloft 55' above the ocean. The open living room has 3 love seats and 2 spacious window seats for reading, napping, sleeping or watching the dolphins play on the waves.

Enjoy meals on the 10' x 30' covered upper deck or inside at the dining table for 10, the 4+ person 1950's diner booth, or the 3 diner swivel stools at the kitchen counter.

The dome sleeps 20+ people. It has 6 private bedrooms, 5 of the them have wonderful ocean views through large windows. There is also an upper floor family/TV room that sleeps 3 - 4 with a couch with a pull out 'trundle' bed and a flip down couch. The family room also has views of the ocean and the sound. The third floor main bedroom has a Jacuzzi tub with an ocean view and a 3rd level deck with panoramic views of Topsail's soundside and Intercoastal Waterway. Two of the bedrooms on the lower floor have doors opening to the lower covered deck. This deck has stairs to the upper deck and the walkway over the dunes with steps directly down to the beach. There are 4 full baths (3 with showers, 1 with tub).

The 4th floor pentagonal skyloft has a 360 degree view of everything, and a hammock.

Everything is furnished: all kitchen cooking/eating items (service for 20+), micro-wave, crock pot, 2 coffee pots, electric griddle, dishwasher, full-size washer and dryer, 6 cable TVs, high speed open wi-fi internet, DVD players built into TVs, phone (with free long distance), stereo/AM/FM/CD deck.

Linen service is available through Island Real Estate for an additional fee.

The Beach Dome is in North Topsail Beach on Topsail Island, North Carolina, between Wilmington and Jacksonville along North Carolina's southeastern coast.

About Mike and Amy Codi

We currently live in upstate New York with our three daughters and two labs. We found and stayed in this beautiful home while on a family vacation. We instantly fell in love with it and knew it would become our second home. The Beach Dome, with its unique character, open layout, and panoramic views, truly makes family gatherings and vacations unforgettable. We love our new beach home and know you will, too!

Mike and Amy Codi purchased this house in 2014

Why Mike and Amy Codi chose North Topsail Beach

The Beach Dome was built in 1998 by Dennis Johnson, owner of Natural Spaces Domes. He and his family built this unique home for family vacations. They rented the Beach Dome successfully for years and now have turned it over to us. We plan to continue sharing this home's beauty and unique character with others. We have recently remodeled all of the interior bedrooms, floors, appliances, and decor! It is just stunning! Wait until you see it!!

What makes this house unique

The Beach Dome is truly a second home and is very well furnished and set up especially for multi-generational families. There is plenty of room for multiple families or large groups to gather.

This home is much nicer than it looks in the photos! Beautiful, expansive views from the triangular shaped windows. Large covered decks with elevated chairs. Tons of dog gates inside and out to keep dogs safely contained on certain floors or decks,etc. totally dog friendly. This home is on the very north end of the island and about a 25 minute drive to nearest grocery. A quiet area. Very well stocked kitchen. Could use a second refrigerator...
