Bedrooms 4
Space 1,440 sq ft
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come and enjoying a relaxing family time ANYTIME OF THE YEAR!

You will feel right at home in this beautiful FULLY-EQUIPPED, four bedroom, three bath Oceanside (not Oceanfront) townhouse.

The first floor is comprised of three bedrooms, including one of the two masters (King bed) with its own bath, two additional bedrooms one with queen bed and the other with two twin beds, an additional full bath and full size washer and dryer. The stairs up lead to the Great Room, Dining area, fully equipped kitchen and the second of the two Master bedrooms (Queen).

You will (I know we do) enjoy the fact that there is a deck off every room. Although not an Oceanfront unit you can still enjoy the sights and sounds of the beautiful ocean from the Oceanside decks. The street side decks afford a view of the marsh and intracoastal in the distance complete with spectular sunset views.

Access to the beach is by private beach access. NO STREETS TO CROSS, simply walk across the courtyard/picnic area and you are there.

The Surf City area is the 'commercial center' of Topsail Island and therefore offers access to many eating spots from burgers to gourmet. Other members of the family may enjoy the unique gift and other shops of interest.

Sip your morning coffee, or evening glass of wine while you enjoy the sights and sounds of the Ocean in the foreground. We are confident that you will enjoy the Surf City area of Topsail Island and we hope you will want to return for years to come.

Collect seashells, work on your tan to the envy of those left behind, swim or frolic in the inviting surf or simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this vacation paradise. Read a book, fly a kite, ride a bike or... DO NOTHING AT ALL!

Read the comments of just some of our very satisfied guests and let us know if more information is needed. We LOVE TO WELCOME BACK OUR REPEAT GUESTS!

About Richard Benedetti

My wife Barbara and I bought this town home in 2002. We are the first and only owners. We have enjoyed many happy times here and are excited to be able to share it with repeat and new guests. We actually had this on the VRBO rental market from 2004 until 2012 when we decided to move in ourselves and call it HOME. We enjoyed living at the beach for the two plus years we did however we are now going to offer for vacation once again effective spring 2015. We look forward to welcoming back our past guests, many of who have become friends and we look forward to making more!

Why Richard Benedetti chose Surf City

We have had a beach house in another area beach town but we are so pleased we finally chose Topsail Island and Surf City in Particular.

What makes this townhome unique

The summer ocean temperatures are 'bath-like' it is truly a great swimming beach! It truly is a GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had the pleasure of staying at Nakiska for nine days in April after our son returned home from Iraq. The house was beautifully decorated, equipped with every possible amenity and our stay could not have been more delightful. There was some uncertainty about the exact dates when our son would be returning and Richard (the owner) could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We have stayed in many homes on Topsail Island, but I can honestly say that this one is our favorite and we look forward to returning to Nakiska.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nakiska was fabulous! We were on Topsail Island to attend a family wedding. My husband & I went down for a week and our adult children came for a few days. Richard's place was perfect for us! There was plenty of room for all of us and the beach was just across the courtyard. We enjoyed using the BBQ, the beach chairs, the cooler and skim boards; as well as the outdoor shower. The house is immaculate and very nicely decorated. The beds were all comfy and it was great to have the washer and dryer.

We will definitely rent here again if we return to Topsail Island.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nakiska was the perfect house! The house was clean and more or less fully stocked with anything you could need for the visit. Next time I will know not to even bother with bringing beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. this house has it all! The location was ideal, being close to plenty of restaurants in Surf City. You do not even have to get in your car to go out! We walked to multiple restaurants that were less than a mile away, one (Daddy Mac's) was directly on the beach. The house has great inside entertaining space, but we spent most of our free time off the beach on the deck upstairs where you can see and hear the ocean. If you are looking for a house where you can just show up with your sheets and towels, this is the house for you!

Our family had the best time ever at Nakiska!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a most wonderful and memorable family vacation! We loved the property, the location was perfect and close to the shore, the shops, amazing restaurants and very caring neighbors who helped us navigate the island. There is so much to do and so many natural places to visit as you enjoy absolutely everything that you need to prepare your meals and your memories! This owner takes personal pride in having his entire property in tip-top shape for each renter! Bravo Richard! Sincerely, The Klinger family.
