Welcome to our Surf City, NC beachfront home. Here our guests BREATHE IN JOY and breathe out stress. You will experience bliss and joy during your entire stay at our ocean front haven.

We believe whether you are on vacation or on retreat, you should arrive to a fully stocked home that is ready to welcome you in with open arms.

If by chance something stops working during your stay, you will have access to our on-call-handyman who will get there promptly to service the home.

Location is everything when you're traveling and here you will find beauty as mother-nature intended it, right out your front windows. The views are spectacular. Our private decking system will leave you right on the beach. We are within walking distancing to the Surf City pier, restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, smoothie bars, yoga studios, and so much more.

Rest your head in one of 4 spacious bedrooms -- two of which are oceanfront -- and let your cares wash away with the tide as you relax on one of two furnished decks; one of which is covered.

In addition to covered parking, extra public parking near our home can accommodate larger groups.

About Beata (rhymes with Miata)

Hello, my name is Beata (rhymes with Miata) but you can call me Be. I've had "own a beach house" on my vision board since I was 30, and a few months before my 40th birthday my dreams came true. My husband and I are proud Penn Staters and currently live in Cary, NC with our two sons Leo (2006) and Dylan (2009) and our 4 cats (don't worry, none of them will come to the beach house).

My father is a skilled carpenter and mason an my mother is a professional housekeeper and I have been running Handy Maven, a boutique remodeling firm in Baltimore for them since 2012. I have been flipping houses with my dad since I was 12. I can not wait to dive in and continue making upgrades and remodels to this already gorgeous, sturdy and well maintained home.

Before I left my corporate career to raise my boys, I was a Logistician for Procter & Gamble. My favorite assignment was leading the customer service team,

I am also a trained speaker, writer, and trainer. I LOVE leading retreats and leadership events. My goal is to be of service to you in any way that I can be. I am the proud creator and leader of the Bliss Academy for Success and offer small business strategic consulting and implementation accountability.

My goal is to understand what kind of experience you are looking for and to deliver it with excellence. You can simply rent my home and have a DIY experience, or you can hire me to be your personal concierge planning and implementing anything that you and your fellow travelers will like. I have access to the best coaches speakers, artists, yogis, meditation experts and so much more in the country and would be happy to personalize your experience if that is what you would like.

Beata (rhymes with Miata) purchased this house in 2016

Beautiful property! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and a great layout to accommodate large groups of needed. We were traveling with a 10 yr old boy and 2 teenage girls and our dog. The bunk room with the Wii and Legos kept our son occupied all week. We had a great trip and hope to visit again in the future. One suggestion to the owners would be to consider a gate on the top level deck to allow guests to have small children and pets on the deck without having to worry about them wandering down the stairs to the beach.

It's was so beautiful and clean. It felt like home. Gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time in topsail. We enjoyed the views, waves, And the beach. It was so relaxing. We took long walks on the beach, collecting seashells, and playing in the water. We especially liked the house we stayed in. Everything was blissful!!

Oceanside Ideal

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, spacious updated home, enough room for everyone! Mulit-level decks for enjoying sun or shade. It had everything we needed! Wonderful for several couples or a family. Loved the grey scheme, light and bright, each room decorated differently. We enjoyed walking at night with flashlights and surprising the ghosts crabs as they scurried back to their holes. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful property to watch the sun rise and set!

  • 5 of 5

Purpose of our stay was to throw an engagement get together; our son proposed to his long time girlfriend and Bea's place was perfect to have both sides of the family over for dinner.

The house is very well equipped and clean and Bea was very responsive to the couple of questions that I had thru the week.

Would recommend bringing your own towels and washcloths as the ones provided are a little rough.

We thoroughly enjoyed the deck with the views! So pretty.

Can't wait to go back.

Dolphins, Sunrise, Endless Surf

  • 5 of 5

I visited the Bliss Escape in the off-season. I loved every minute and it was hard to have to pack up and leave.

This spacious house is right on the beach. It's clean, well-stocked, and beautifully decorated. I spent much of the weekend on the deck overlooking the ocean, watching the birds and dolphins and the endless waves. When I got tired of sitting, the beach was right there at the bottom of the stairs, plus the stores and restaurants in town.

It was a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to return.

A place for peace of mind!

  • 5 of 5

I've been to The Bliss Escape twice now, both times for a fantastic eye-opening, soul-searching women's retreat, and there is just something about this home that brings peace to my soul. Full disclosure: I don't even like the beach that much, I'm more of a mountains kind of girl, but I LOVE coming here. It's quiet, the views are stunning, and the interior decoration is beautiful and sophisticated (no chintzy, LOUD beach decor here.) Plus the house is so packed with amenities, you could practically forget your packing list and still have the essentials when you arrive. Bonus points: there's a lovely little closet stocked with great beach reads and board games for kids. The owner is a gem and really, genuinely cares about your stay being comfortable and showing every bit of that famous southern hospitality. The house is also within walking distance of several local restaurants, touristy shops, and a market. Would I come back? Heck yeah!
