About the property

This home can be your getaway destination! Whether you stay for a week or longer, you will want to return to our home in the quaint city by the sea, Surf City, for unforgettable vacation memories.

Sea Star Village is an oceanfront complex. The beach is just a 1 minute walk (maybe 50 yds) from our place for you to enjoy. Sea Star Village is just approximately 2.5 miles from the swing bridge in Surf City. You'll be mesmerized by the gorgeous views! Roll down the windows, feel the wind and breathe in the ocean air as you drive to paradise!

This quality built home is newly furnished, away from it all, yet close to everything. For those days you don't want sand between your toes, relax at the pool which you have 2 balcony views! There are also two balcony views of the intra-coastal waterway, and a sneak peak at the ocean from the master bedroom balcony! A total of 4 balcony views!

You first step into the game room featuring a foosball table and Wii along with a double seated bicycle to take out on the island. As you enter the middle level you will find 3 bedrooms, one bedroom has 2 double beds with a private bath and balcony. The laundry room is also conveniently located on this level. The other 2 bedrooms on this level have an adjoining deck overlooking the pool. and bunk beds featuring a full size bed on the bottom and twin on the top, sleeping 3 in each room.

The upper level family/gathering room with vaulted ceiling, features a 46' Flat Screen TV, comfy sofa and chairs, stereo, DVD & CD player, and a spacious dining area. Large windows provide viewing the waterway or watching the evening sunset. Enjoy the large open deck, with chairs & high table for 'outdoor' dining, etc. Another outdoor deck on the back of the home is great for conversation while enjoying a quiet ocean wake-up.

The custom kitchen adjoining the family room offers an entertaining island with granite countertops. It has premium appliances to include a smooth top range, stainless steel fridge with ice & water in door, dishwasher, & microwave. Fully equipped with all utensils, bakeware and ss cookware. The gourmet cook in the crowd will LOVE this kitchen.

Enter the private master suite on this level as well featuring a queen size bed. Enjoy the large jetted tub, with a tile enclosed shower. Enjoy the outdoor deck at this entrance.

Surf City comes alive in the summer with nighlife just across the street for entertainment, bicyclist enjoying riding daily, golfing is just a few miles away in Sneads Ferry. Quaint shops await you on the island to include: 'Justbaked Bakery', Beach Outfitters, IGA (great gift store inside), Bert's Surfshop, and don't forget about the wonderful fresh seafood, restaurants, and so much more! You can sit on a balcony and be a part of it all as you enjoy the people passing by.

Our home has 6 colored cable TVs, a dvd player, Wii, foosball, ceiling fans in every bedroom and the living room, wireless internet, deck furniture and more! I have to mention the breathtaking sunset views and the intra-coastal waterway views...what a way to end the day! It's not just a state of mind, it's a reality.

This is our home and we want you to enjoy all the amenities. For your convenience, we keep stocked: dish & bath bar soap, dishwasher detergent, dish towels, trash bags, coffee filters, toilet tissue and paper towels. This in addition to bed linens, pillows, bath towels & extra blankets. Relax and love our beach home as we do.

About Shirley Morrison

We are beach and water lovers! Our family enjoys walking on the beach, kayaking, playing cornhole, seashelling and just relaxing. Our dream was to one day own our little piece of paradise on the island. We are both NC Real Estate Brokers and had been house hunting for the perfect spot. We found it! I'm sure you will enjoy and take care of it just as we have.

Shirley Morrison purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Shirley Morrison chose Surf City

Surf City is a quaint getaway, but not so commercialized. It's not far from Jacksonville, NC or Wilmington, NC, should you want more shopping, but when we're there, we stay!

What makes this townhome unique

We enjoy sitting on the deck in the mornings as we look out at the intracoastal waterway. We love morning walks on the beach searching for those special shells, bike rides in the afternoons, and naps in the middle of the day:) The sunset is breathtaking either on the beach or from your balcony!

Very nice and convenient to the beach

  • 4 of 5

A few not perfects but the best far outweighed them. They thought of just about everything. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans, flatware, glasses, shared spices. TV in every room. Check out what you see before shopping as the spices, oil, spray was an unexpected help. Short walk to beach with little ones was smooth, not far at all. Pool right off the back was great. Well decorated and comfortable with plenty of decking and deck furniture. There was no real place to store non refrigerator items other than cover the counter space and the dining table was all but impossible to seat everyone comfortably. Those are the only two not so greats but we managed. It may have not stood out except we had a lot of rain so inside time made it more obvious to us. All in all, it is a great place to go and we hope to stay here again. The owner seems to genuinely care that the renters are satisfied and does all possible to assist. Bonus: Foosball, Wii if you have games, board games, some beach chairs and umbrella if you forget. Thanks for a wonderful week.

Beautiful condo with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful townhome! Shirley was so amazing to work with and beyond helpful! The condo was supplied with everything you needed, including fun board games, beach equipment, a fully stocked kitchen and was super clean and well kept. The pool was so convenient and only a short walk to the beach. Being able to use a canopy on the beach was a huge plus! The beach was awesome, not too shelly and flat. Waves were perfect for boogie boarding and body surfing. Convenient to plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and surf shops. A great playground for kids about 1/2 mile away. Suited 2 families perfectly! Will definitely be back!

Really enjoyed our stay at The Beach House. The owner was very helpful and hospitable, even supplying a crockpot at my daughter's request. The unit was more than adequate for our family of 8 adults and 4 small children. Access to the beach was excellent and the weather was perfect. Great week.
