Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Elegant ocean side, ocean view townhouse on quiet ocean front street walking distance to town and fine or casual dining or shopping. This is one of the most desirable locations on the island and the beaches are very clean and private.

It is a fantastic place that is built on an ocean front lot yet has two duplexes built in front of it (so it is not ocean front...but as close as you can get and definitely the next best thing!!).

Next to us is the beach emergency access for the fire department so that is what gives us the spectacular ocean views. This area can never be built on and we sit on our deck and enjoy the surf. You can actually see the waves from the living area, and from the kitchen while eating or cooking. You can even see the sun rise over the ocean while lying in the comfortable Simmons world class beauty rest mattress!

Not only is it furnished for supreme comfort it is decorated to make you feel completely at ease and relaxed from the moment you walk in. We made this our home away from home and it is decorated that way. The high top resin deck chairs make sitting on the deck like sitting on a thrown. The view is breath taking.

The property also is walking distance to town and sits on a private and secluded residential section of surf city. There are no other town houses around - just single family homes and it is a 25 mph road for only beach front homes so it is quiet and relaxing. The town house has its own private parking and beach access (no streets to cross of course because you are on an ocean front lot already). You just couldn't have a better location.

This home was newly renovated. The living area furniture has been upgraded to all leather reclining sofa July 2017.. It is tastefully decorated and features quality fixtures and flooring. There is a well appointed kitchen and comfortable furniture throughout the home.

Because we know a good vacation can only be good if you can get a good nights sleep, we feature premium bedding with Simmons World Class Beautyrest mattress on the King Size master bed and also on the two full size beds in the second bedroom. The upper bunk twin beds is a quality Serta mattresses. The home is equipped with comfort height 18 toilets and custom lighting. Bed linens are included at no extra charge (many units would charge you an additional fee of approx ~$25 per bed for this) [note that the mattresses are very thick and would require deep pocket sheets if you choose to bring your own]. Departure cleaning is also included (many units charge you an additional $90 for this). PLEASE NOTE THAT BATH AND BEACH TOWELS ARE NOT PROVIDED. .

The home has WiFi (wireless internet), 46' LCD HD TV with Blue Ray DVD, and premium sound system. Bedrooms also have cable LCD Flat screen TVs. Sleeping accommodations are one king, one twin over full bunk, and one full.

Topsail is a great place for families and fun. Enjoy quiet relaxation of the ocean breeze and watching the surf from the comfy high top resin deck chairs or a moonlight walk on the beach.

The home has a private access to the beach directly in front of your door. This access is for town homes only. Enjoy watching the children play on the beach right from your deck or fish off the beaches right in front of the town house. You can also walk up to the Surf City Pier to see what's biting.

Enjoy walking for literally miles on clean white beaches looking for prehistoric sharks teeth (Topsail is one of the few area on the east coast where they are easily found) or gather shells or 'sea beans' (small polished pebbles) for you collection. Visit the famous Sea Turtle Hospital here on the Island (see link on other page) or stop at one of our local shops and pick up some fresh home made fudge, pies or or seafood.

About Ted Waltz

We are originally from Kennett Square PA which is near Philadelphia. Debbie grew up in Williamsville NY which is a small town near Buffalo NY and moved to Kennett Square after going to college in the Philadelphia area. Ted grew up and lived most of his life in Kennett Square prior to moving to North Carolina. Teds parents both worked in the school system in Kennett (his father as a teacher and his mother as the school nurse). Ted was a Mushroom Farmer (that region is known for being one of the largest producers of fresh Mushrooms in the world). We both still have family in Kennett Square and in Buffalo but they enjoy coming to visit us in North Carolina (especially in the winter!). Our three children are grown now and one is in Vet School, one is a middle school teacher and the third is working on his graduate degree in engineering. We currently live on a small farm outside of Raleigh in Apex NC. We have 2 Rottweilers, a St Bernard, 2 Peruvian Paso horses, one Paso Fino horse and one miniature donkey. You can also frequently find our daughters' dogs (an Australian Shepard and an English Bull Terrier)

Ted Waltz purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Ted Waltz chose Topsail Island

We purchased this home in August of 2011 as a place to come and get away for a little sun sand and relaxation. We have been coming to Topsail for 30 years and our three children have grown up enjoying the beaches and looking for sharks teeth in the sands of Surf City. We used to travel here from the Philadelphia area because the beaches were so clean and private. We've always felt it was worth the trip and met many who traveled much further than us. Topsail is a wonderful family place but it is also a place where fishermen and surfers can share the beach and enjoy the long season of warm crystal clear water. In the fall we would stay out all night and wait on the beach with our children for the turtle nests to hatch. Vacationing in Topsail has always been worth the trip. After 30 years we finally bought something. This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm, and inviting too. This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm and inviting too. Since we already know Topsail will charm you, we want the home to charm you too! We made a real effort to renovate this vacation home and its bedding and furnishing so that you will definitely want to return! You will find our homes stand out from the crowd by the attention to your comfort and enjoyment. From our reviews, we think we hit the mark!

What makes this townhome unique

We love that we can walk to the beach front restaurants and the fishing pier. We also love that we have a great view of the ocean from our deck sitting in the high top chairs. It is really nice to have a private beach access and not to have to cross the street to get to the beach. It really feels like beach / ocean front without ocean front prices and that makes it very affordable for people to get a high quality rental in a fantastic location.

The definition of VACATION.

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth year I've stayed with one of this owner's properties and I've never been disappointed they are always top notch. This year was no different everything was up to Snuff and made the vacation even more wonderful. Even the hurricane what was left of it didn't dampen our spirits or darken our vacation in anyway. You can be sure we'll be back in one of this owners properties again next year.

Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay here this year. That should tell you how much I like this place lol. The ocean view and sounds so relaxing, the decor tastefully beachy, the kitchen fully equipped, and the leather couches are roomy and so comfortable for watching TV and naps. I especially love the fact that the flooring is hardwood and tiles, because beach places that have carpet always make me paranoid about the cleanliness of the carpet, or more precisely, the lack of cleanliness. Plus, I have major allergies. And you can't beat being able to walk out to the beach within mere steps. Awesome location!

Great vacation location

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was very nice and the location is great. The kitchen had everything you could ask for and the furniture was all nice and the bed in the master bedroom could not be more comfortable. Be aware, though, that although in the description it says there is a sleep sofa in the living room that is no longer the case.. The leather furniture is fabulous but we did have two couples sharing a bedroom that weren't expecting to. That is just a matter of updating the website. Ted was great and very responsive of any questions I had. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Second Row Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience booking the home from Ted. We arrived and easily had the van unloaded in the shaded carport. You actually have two very close options to get to the beach. The house came with toilet paper, paper towels, dish towels etc. whereas with normal agency rentals you would have to bring your own. Loved the fan in the bunk bed room - it's so nice to not have fans that wobble and rattle!! Kitchen was fully stocked and we enjoyed making drinks at the house and sipping on the beach. Sofas upstairs were super big and squishy!! Enjoyed our stay and had no trouble with the home owner. Would recommend anyone else to stay!!
