Wonderful Week at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that we rented this home for our family gathering. Walking into the Vick's home gives an immediate sense of brightness and calmness--perfect start to a wonderful week. Furnishings are nice and tastefully placed. We had three couples and three children. There were both a pack and play and a type of high-chair seat that fits onto a dining chair for our little one. We took our gates for the stairs safety for our toddler. The outside shower has always been a great advantage. The wagon for toting things to the beach is perfect. Might suggest that people who plan to cook much may want to bring their special pots, but otherwise, the kitchen is nicely and well supplied. We had plenty of room and perfect weather to boot. We found some fun activities for side entertainment. People living or renting in the area were pleasant on the family beach. We loved our time there and plan to rent again for our next family gathering. We heartily recommend this home for your time at the beach.

Great Location for a Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our second year staying at this home. The owner's are great to work with and the property is a great location for back and forth beach access....almost like being right on the beach but without the added cost. The outside shower is a family favorite after a hot day at the beach. Fully stocked kitchen for those who like to cook/grill. Lots of options close by if you like to eat can drive or it's a nice walk along the beach both during the day as well as in the evenings. Wish we would have found Top Sail and the Vick home years ago. It's a great vacation destination to relax and enjoy the sun, sand, surf!

Surf City Dream

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous week in Surf City! The home has an amazing location with a beautiful ocean view and easy beach access. The second floor room is a great surprise with tons of daylight and a spectacular view. This house is bright and comfortable with all the necessary amenities including plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen is well-stocked for home cooking. Most importantly, the owner, Mrs. Vick, was quick to communicate and super helpful ! We can't wait to return next year!

Great house for families with teens!

  • 5 of 5

We had family stay at the Vick's house in August 2015. It was a perfect week of fun, food, festivities! With teenagers in the house, it was so nice to have two living areas. The adults could visit on one floor while the kids were on the other floor. The first morning we made coffee and to our disappointment the coffee maker was not working properly. I texted the owner and she immediately replied!! She told me where the back up coffee maker was stored and even offered to bring us one if it did not work! Excellent service! The outside shower is very spacious and private with a lock on the door. The kitchen had all of the appliances and kitchen tools we needed for making meals. We especially enjoyed the upper deck off the living room area in the early evenings. The ocean view was beautiful! The beach access was so convenient (just across the street!). The owners are great with communication and I really appreciated it. We will be back!

Stoney Creek, Ontario


  • 5 of 5

I started this review by reading all the other reviews, not that I needed a consensus for what I was about to write, but to see if others enjoyed their stay as much as we loved ours. I am in full agreement with all the reviewers and feel that the five star rating I see is merited. Instincts are usually not too far wrong and from my first contact and rental several years ago to the last with Georgia and Marvin, led me to believe that I would enjoy my stay in their bright, uplifting, and appropriately "beach" decorated home.

I am skipping the house details as they are easily fond in the VRBO ad, but I will confirm what others had to say that the place is clean, well maintained, close to the beach and provides a wonderful view of the sunrise and ocean, especially for a non-ocean front house, at non-ocean front prices. The place easily accommodated our 6 adults and 5 children and is within easy reach of grocery shopping and restaurant and coffee shops. The beach is a great walking and swimming beach as the water seemed calmer and warmer than most beaches we have been frequenting along the NC coast.

I definitely recommend staying at the Vick's and our family is looking forward to our next stay.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Vicks' home for a week. It is very well taken care of - which was such a pleasant surprise, considering you never really know what you're going to get when you rent sight unseen. The home is in great shape and nicely decorated. It is an unusual set-up, as the kitchen is on the middle level, with the 'great room' on the top level. But it really worked well to have the areas separate. We spent a good deal of time on the top level for happy hour or reading - the views of the ocean are just lovely.

The bedrooms were all immaculate and very comfortable - two on the middle level, one with 2 twins and one with a queen. There is a bathroom between the two rooms. Two more bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen and each with its own 2-piece bathroom. The 2 rooms share a shower. We also used the rollaway bed for my son, who parked it out by the TV and loved having his own space. Don't let the size of the kitchen fool you - while it's on the small side, we had no problems making nightly dinners for 8 people. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything we needed - coffee maker, toaster, blender, utensils, etc. The location of the house was good for our family. We only had to cross the street to get to the beach. It might be a little bit tough if you have small children, as the street can be very busy.

My only recommendation for the Vicks would be to top off the bushes in front of the house so the ocean is viewable from the middle level of the house. All in all, a wonderful vacation - I would highly recommend this home - and I am pretty picky :). Many thanks to Georgia, who was lovely to work with.
