Most of the properties on this site are Condos in large complexes. If you want a quieter experience, no children screaming outside your door, no sound thorough the walls, parking that is your own and right outside your door with no stairs to climb, and only you in the spa, then this is the place for you!

People who have pet allergies will be comfortable, animals have never been allowed inside.

Apartment is located on the ground level in a quiet wooded private residential neighborhood. The private apartment features beautiful designer appointed features and private hot&cold outdoor shower.

This is a tight fit for 4 people for a week, for a long weekend it is fine. It is better for 2-3 people. It is a typical size studio with a lot of amenities. It is beautiful and comfortable but a typical studio size. All of the apartment is is shown in the pictures.

It is conveniently located 2 miles from the mid island bridge to Topsail Island.

About Jennifer Dolan

We love this island! It is so family friendly. We can't wait for you to discover it's charm also. We are often here on weekends and summers so if you need anything we are close by.

If you want to find me on another site try, Home Escape 78263000.

I work very hard at being an attentive, helpful, truthful, hard-working owner. Please contact me directly by looking at the 'rental agreement' header.

Please ask me anything before booking. I am Happy to answer ANY question you have!

The site’s recent encouragement to ‘book it now’, reduces and discourages communication between guest and owner. Once you book the house I will communicate with you directly. Please consider communicating with me directly and as frequently as needed. I believe it enhances your stay!

Jennifer Dolan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jennifer Dolan chose Village of Stump Sound

The only place to see sunset on this island is the Sound Side. You will be amazed at the beauty & peacefulness of watching the sunset from the neighborhood gazebo!

We can't wait for your family to get to know this island. Shh... don't tell to many people though, we like it to stay somewhat mysterious.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very quiet neighborhood and the apartment has so many benefitss. It is a wooded neighborhood with live oaks providing shade and respite after a fun day at the beach!

Most of the properties on this site are Condos in large complexes. If you want a quieter experience, no children screaming outside your door, no sound thorough the walls, parking that is your own and right outside your door with no stairs to climb, and only you in the spa, then this is the place for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Jennifer,

Thanks for opening your home to us. We really enjoyed being there.

My apologies, but I realized I did not start the dishwasher. It has a tablet in it ready to go though.

Take care!

A relaxing stay on Topsail for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the location of the home which is just a couple of miles from the main Surf City shops/restaurants. The kids really liked the bunk bed arrangement. The upper loft area is so beautiful with the ocean view. It's a great area for the kids to hang out and play cards or games. Everyone had adequate seating and space to spread out in the house. The back deck is nice with two screen porches connecting them. We prepared meals in the kitchen and found everything to be well stocked in the way of utensils, bowls and pots. Having a warm outside shower was ideal for keeping sand out of the house and knocking out only one shower for the kids after beach activities. We thought the beds were comfortable and everyone said that they slept really well each night. When we were leaving the kids expressed how much they "would miss this place!" Looking forward to coming back again.

Great house! Lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The kitchen is large and user friendly. I enjoyed having a ground level entry with plenty of space for shoes and coats. The owner shows great attention to detail.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for our ladies weekend in October. Home is immaculate and beautiful. Kitchen was large and spacious and perfect for group cooking. Jennifer was wonderful to work with. I would definitely rent again. Just a note, home says oceanfront but is more semi-oceanfront. House on both sides of it sit more forward so it blocks your view.

Owner's Response: Our property line is at the high tide line. But, the lots do stagger in our neighborhood. As stated in the site information, the house sits beyond the dune. Views are he best from the upper level and are expansive. On the lower level you can not see the beach. The ocean is visible from all levels. There is an empty lot to the right of ours so views are expansive.

Awesome vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The location and house were awesome. The house is close to everything you may need to stock the house -food, shampoo/soap, paper products, etc. We brought our own towels and linens. The house was very clean and the kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook. The owners were attentive and fixed the dishwasher problem within 30 minutes. You can't beat the access to the beach and pool! We had a big group of kids who loved the room with multiple bunk beds. Great family vacation place that we hope to return to one day.
