About the property

Cottage, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)Wi-Fi

Property extends ocean to sound with 2 deep water boat docks on sound-side plus large additional parking area. Watch the sun rise over the ocean from the swing on our covered porch. Take a walk on the broad sandy beach or bike down the trail to the neighborhood coffee shop/book store for the morning papers. Spread your towel on the sundeck or down on the beach while watching the kids play in the surf. Collect your pot full of crabs from the Sound-side boat dock and spread a picnic lunch on the porch.

Later, let the kids play ping-pong while you enjoy watching the sun set from our Sound-side deck with an eye on the fish sizzling on the grill. Putt-Putt, anyone ? After dinner take the family 1.5 miles S to the little town of Topsail Beach for putt-putt and an ice cream sundae at the 1950's counter of the old 'Beach Shop'.

Tomorrow- maybe fishing or golfing for Dad or a family trip to historic Wilmington for a carriage tour and trip to the Battleship N.C.'s sound and light spectacular.

Want to see nature up close? Take a guided canoe tour of the wetlands and see egrets, ospreys, and where baby crabs, shrimp, and clams are born.

Rainy day or hot afternoon? No problem, the Quarter Moon Bookstore awaits your exploration. Have a fruit smoothie or iced coffee , check the superb selection of kid's books and coastal histories of pirates and ghosts. New wine bar and al fresco seating..

No boat? No problem. Both boat/jet ski rentals and boat tours are available. Sunset cruises are a great way to end the day. Want more adventure? Try deep-sea fishing charters and bring your catch home for supper!

Just want to chill? No problem. An umbrella, a beach chair, and a book on a beautiful quiet beach will help you re-charge your batteries for another day of fun tomorrow.

What ever your choices, our Casa del Sol can fill the bill.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We are a 3 generation family who has stayed in this house for 3 years. It is such a fun place that has all you could need on vacation. The house is roomy, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. It comes with beach chairs and umbrellas - so nice not to have to haul all that stuff. The porch is covered and connects to a spacious deck. Lots of deck furniture. And the whole deal is right on the beach! A nice, quiet beach where little ones can run freely. My gang is very fond of it!!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We found this beach house perfect for our family! Plenty of bedrooms, well stocked kitchen, covered front porch which we used during several thunder showers, and sound side access, which we enjoyed. We have been coming to Topsail for many, many years and would rent this house again. The owner was very easy to talk to and the cleaning staff did an excellent job. Can't wait to go back!

Really Nice House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this house. We are fans of Topsail Island and have been vacationing there for a number of years. We are so glad to have rented this house for the first, but not last, time. My group this year consisted of 9 adults and 2 toddlers. There was plenty of sleeping room. I love a house with lots of separate sleeping areas and plenty of TWIN beds. I have adult children and their friends who do not want to share the queen and double beds that so many houses offer.

The kitchen had all we needed including a big pot for our Low Country boil!

The porch and deck areas were heaven. We spent all our nights out there. The beach is wide and uncrowded. There were even beach chairs waiting for us!

The owner was lovely and so pleasant to deal with. I am missing this place even as I write this review!

Long distance travelers

  • 5 of 5

We rode down to the house from Rhode Island to Top Sail Beach. LONG ride but boy was it worth it. The house was well equipped, the beach was beautiful, the sound side for fishing was a bonus.

You will enjoy pelicans, dolphins, constant beach noises, just lovely.

The owner was very nice to deal with. All in all we would go back there in a minute. In fact I wish I was there now!
