About Larry Spears

Paradise Found is the 3rd Beach home that I have designed and built, and I feel this one really got it right!

Larry Spears purchased this house in 2002

Why Larry Spears chose Topsail Island

We have had a beach house on Topsail Island since 1994, and still have a second home there 2 miles up the island.

What makes this house unique

Topsail is a place where you go to spend time with friends and family enjoying the sun and ocean, while not worrying about the kids yelling to go to the mall.


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from seven nights at this property and had a wonderful trip. The property is in a great location--it is just a walk along the beach from Surf City Pier, a short walk from a great coffee/donut shop (The Daily Grind) and also close the a top-rated NC spa (Inis Spa). We loved the ability to take advantage of local attractions without having to load up in the car. A highlight for my kids was the Surf City Fire Department, just across the street a bit from the house. My sons (4 and 3) loved seeing the fire trucks, and on one morning one of the men from the fire department saw us walk by and was nice enough to come out and approach us with firefighter hats for the kids. They also loved Soundside Park (though we did have to drive to that one).

The beach here is great. Very clean and well-patrolled--we saw town workers on the beach each day, regularly emptying public trash receptacles and patrolling. We found the residents of the area to be very friendly, often saying hello or chatting with our kids on the way by.

From the top level of the home the ocean views are almost surreal. We loved watching the ocean from the kitchen/dining room/living room. On our first morning we were sitting down for breakfast and quickly noticed dolphins out in the water--we were fortunate enough to see them several more times as well! We also saw a few large groups of pelicans and the kids loved watching them dive in and out of the water.

The house itself is spacious and allows for both privacy and togetherness. The kitchen is well-equipped and made cooking for our group a breeze. The stand alone ice maker is a great addition to the kitchen. We also appreciated the washer and dryer very much.

The only (very minor) nuisance for us was some splinters walking on and off the beach--the stairs are a little weathered, so make sure you bring flip flops to wear as you walk to and from the beach.

Overall we were very happy with our stay here and all agreed we would love to re-visit Paradise Revisited!

Christmas escape with the family

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for Christmas week this year, and it was amazing. Pelicans flying past the front windows, a short few steps' walk to the beach, lots of living space, good sized kitchen. It was wonderful.

There were 16 in our group and we had plenty of room to spread out, play games, take naps, watch television, and just sit around and visit.

The elevator was wonderful, as my parents-in-law are not comfortable with stairs. My only suggestion is this: grab bars in the bathroom showers would be a nice improvement. Showering or bathing was difficult for them because of the fear of slips and falls.

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

More than enough space to accommodate everyone! Picked up our Marine from Camp Lejeune to spend the weekend. Great family bonding time as the weekend was cloudy/rainy/cool. Got to see the dolphins a few times right from the deck! Walked to restaurants and coffee shops. The elevator was definitely a plus when it came time to bring the groceries in. My only disappointment was it wasn't turtle season.

Wedding and family fun!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding.....on the beach!!! With a few decorations that we used the dinning area of the house was perfect for our little reception party....looked so pretty and beachy!!!There was room for all 14 of us and the privacy that "some" needed.Kitchen was well stocked, décor-beach like, clean, roomy and well laid out. We had a few days of rain and clouds, but it stayed warm enough for us to go to the beach every day. We all agreed that we would definitely pick Paradise Revisited again for our celebration! The owner sent us directions etc. that were very helpful. Everyone commented how nice it was to be in an area where there weren't any high rise condos....just tastefully done beach homes....loved it!

Great place for multiple generations

  • 5 of 5

House was everything advertised. A few of the rooms were a bit crowded in that beds too large for room and no accommodations for infants. But that was the only down side. Everything was in working order, tastefully decorated, well stocked kitchen and great location. We were able to walk to most places. A great highlight was the release of a turtle just a few houses down at public access. Owner was very responsive to questions/inquiries

Owner's Response: Anneliese, we are glad you had a great time, and especially got to see a sea turtle returned to the wild. I hope you saw a lot of the dolphins too!

Great place, well maintained and well managed.

  • 5 of 5

The house, views and amenities were exactly as advertised. The elevator was quite helpful as the main living area and several of the bedrooms are two floors up from the entrance. I and my group had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay there again when we return to the area. On about the third day, the stand-alone ice maker stopped working. We called the owner, and a repairman was on the scene in about an hour. This spoke volumes to me about how important it is to the owner to see to it that guests have a good experience. And we did.
