About Kim or Ron Verney

We are the owners, Ron and Kim Verney, who have resided in Alaska the last 35 years, wanted to have a place to escape the cold winter months in Alaska. Kim grew up in this area and is a graduate of Topsail many years ago. We visit the area often as we have family all around the surrounding areas.

Kim is a retired special education teacher from the state of Alaska with 30 years of service. She will on occasion take a sub job in the bush since retirement.

Ron has worked on the Alaska pipeline as a chef for over 25 years and will on occasion do relief jobs to continue his skill.

We are the owners and operators of our Bed & Breakfast and this 2012 season will be our 25th year in operation. It is called, 'The New Englander on the Kenai' and is located on the Kenai Peninsula in South Central Alaska. Many species of salmon swim by our dock and wildlife such as moose, caribou, brown and black bear frequent our property.

Kim or Ron Verney purchased this house in 2011

Why Kim or Ron Verney chose North Topsail Beach

We both love the area and return yearly for a visit. When we saw, 'Shark's Tooth' we knew it was a perfect fit. We love the unique character this cape cod cottage has to offer. The beautiful half moon and other large windows capture the spectatular ocean views. Seeing porpoises daily frolic back and forth in the surf is such a sight to behold. The home is built to take advantage of ocean views throughout our home.

I know we will create many wonderful memories in our senior years here at 'Shark's Tooth'. We hope you come and stay so you can create your own.

What makes this house unique

To be only steps from putting your feet in the sand and sea is an absolute delight. Sitting on the decks that boast the most amazing panoramic blue atlantic ocean views is as good as it gets.

'Shark's Tooth', offers a unique character that is one of it's own. Come see for yourself! Amazing panoramic ocean and sound views. Come and watch the porpoises and dolphins play in the surf. Great place to find all kinds of sea shells. Just steps from the driveway you can find shark's teeth and sea glass. Sometimes you can even see battleships as they go up and down the coast. They will sometimes anchor and stay a few days, can easily see with binoculars. The beach access is about 50 feet from the driveway. Very quiet area, unlike the busy Surf City about 5 miles away. Side road in front of the house is mostly foot and bicycle traffic.

Clean, spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Shark's Tooth. Everything was very clean and well laid out. The small road in front of the house is not heavily traveled and very safe for children to cross. The kitchen was well stocked with every item you may need for cooking. The storage area contained many sand toys and boogie boards. This place was especially nice for our family -- the only down side is that the master bedroom (oceanview) has a open wall overlooking the livingroom, almost like a loft. My husband and I ended up staying in the other master suite (soundview).

A Wonderful Getaway Experience

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location and a great house. The beach access is so close and convenient and there are unobstructed views of the ocean from the balconies of the house. There are so many restaurants and little shops nearby and it is in close proximity to day trip locations (Battleship and downtown Wilmington). We had a blast looking for shark teeth and shells and enjoying the waves. The whole family loved our time spent at Shark Tooth and we were sad to leave. We would definitely come back next time we take a beach vacation. Kim was wonderful and so helpful when we started the process of renting a house, you can't ask for better owners. The whole experience was great!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly a gem! We fell in love with Topsail several years ago on a vacation with the entire extended family. We searched long and hard to find the perfect rental and the search paid off. The house was sell equipped with everything we could have possibly needed. The proximity to the beach was ideal, only having to walk across a little traveled street. We found several great restaurants on the island as well as making our own meals and simply relaxing (and eating too much fudge!). We even got a phone call when we booked from the owners asking if we had any questions which was a nice personal touch. We are already planning on returning next summer. WE had the most relaxing vacation and want to thank the owners for sharing this little piece of heaven!

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is so comfortable and has everything that you could ever want and then some. The kitchen is fully stocked, (even found a waffle iron) and the bedrooms are designed for relaxation. Not to mention the pillowtop mattresses that were really comfortable. At night you drift off to sleep listening to the ocean and looking at the stars in the half-moon window over the patio door. The views from the front of the house are amazing from any room and the back of the house faces the sound-side of the island. Dophins, sharks teeth, and a sea biscuit were all seen on this trip. We had double rainbows after some evening showers and the sunsets were spectacular. Lots to do in the game room (or take games outside for the kids), plenty of chairs for the beach, and boogie boards, etc. There was also a very nice gas grill and a picnic table on the deck to eat outside. The beach access is conveniently located directly across the service road. And if you're into riding bikes, the service road is great for that as well. Sharks Tooth is now our go-to place and we can't want to return. Thank you for letting us share your lovely home.

A Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Shark’s Tooth and North Topsail. The home was well equipped with everything we needed for the week, and it had breathtaking views of the ocean. There was plenty of room for all of us (9 total) and the house was very clean. The two guest bedrooms were very spacious, and the bunk room was perfect for the kids. The beach was only a short walk over the dunes, amazingly clean, and the ocean was the perfect temp. There were a handful of good seafood restaurants and grocery stores that were only a few minutes away. We couldn't be happier we found this home, and we hope to return to Shark’s Tooth. Thank you for a wonderful week!

Come watch the dolphins and porpoises frolic in the ocean in front of our home. Pelicans and a variety of gulls in abundance as well as the sand pipers and other water fowl.
