About Laura Suffecool
We are the original owners of this oceanfront home, and we have watched our children grow up here. We take great joy in knowing that the Pelican Palace has become the home away from home for many of our guests. Many of Pelican Palace family have been with us for over 5 years.
Laura Suffecool purchased this House in 1993
Why Laura Suffecool chose Surf City
Our family began vacationing on Topsail Island in 1989. We loved it's quiet uncrowded beaches and treasured our times there with friends and family. We found that Surf City, on the Island of Topsail, was the perfect location for our family retreats/vacations. Unlike other Atlantic beach towns, Topsail is quiet and unassuming, it's residents are gracious and friendly. You can't top its 26 miles of pristine sandy beaches. With that in mind, we decided to make Surf City our home away from home. With our years of rental experiences we are passionate about making the Pelican Palace not just a rental property, but a home. We chose our exact location-just 1.5 miles from the center of town- because it was convenient and yet far enough away to be private and quiet. Oceanfront was a must so we could enjoy the Spectacular Ocean Views year round! Create your own memories at the Pelican Palace.
What makes this House unique
The Pelican Palace, in Surf City, is in the center of Topsail Island, This provides it with the most convenient access to the heart of town as well as off-island shopping and activities. We are only 1 1/2 miles south of the town center with it's shopping and dining. We love to take walks to the pier in the evening, or ride our bikes down to the Quarter Moon Bookstore for coffee and a cinnamon bun in the morning. The loggerhead turtle has become a family mascot and we have been blessed with witnessing a nest being made as well as several hatchings. It is awe inspiring to see hundreds of little turtles swarm to the sea. We have enjoyed watching Surf City grow while it still maintains its quiet southern charm. From sunrise to sunset your days will be filled with joy, relaxation and fun. We hope you take the opportunity to share some of these special times with your family and friends at the Pelican Palace.

Perfect choice for our co-vacation
We stayed with our friends and their 5 amazing children. The floor plan is perfect with the one bedroom (ours) downstairs and allowing the family of 7 dominate the upstairs. The beach access and the restaurants, etc are all in short distance. The house has been in the host family for years and it shows!!! Well taken care of - simple and perfect.
Pelican Palace is a wonderful place. Right on the ocean, high tide is 50 ft from the deck stairs
The home has everything you might want...the kitchen has everything you might need, nice gas grill, internet access, nice TV (Olympics) comfortable deck chairs, perfect location. We had great weather (end of Feb 2018), relaxing atmosphere and plenty of open restaurants / bars to pick from. Listening to the surf all night, can't beat it. We will rent again!
Home is lovely!
We had a great family vacation. 3 families met. Kids ages were 8 to 16. The beach is beautiful. We loved the porch. We would sit on the porch and enjoy the view as the kids boogie board and swim in the ocean. It is a sweet little beach town. Big Kids would ride bikes all over the island and we didn't worry. The house accommodated 11 people very comfortably. It was clean and comfy. The porch deck facing the ocean was amazing! Owner was very sweet and attentive, even gave us a gift basket. This was a perfect vacation home!!!!
We stay every summer!!
Love this place, no where better!!
Right on the beach, great house that was fully equipped and ready for us.
Wonderful, Memorable Beach Vacation!
We arrived at the Pelican Palace and were pleased from the first view! It is charming on the outside and beautifully clean and decorated on the inside. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals (the dishwasher was even bigger than ours at home!) and a very organized pantry with laundry and extras. The views were absolutely to-die-for and we enjoyed being so close to the beach that our kids could run in and out and we could see and hear them. It was fun going to eat at Max's Pizza, Island Delight, & the Fractured Prune for hot, fresh donuts in the mornings. Our photographer daughter got some breath-taking shots of sunsets over the sound (within walking distance), too! There were little touches like great books to read (including children's books in the kid's rooms), a kayak!, boogie boards, sand toys, puzzles and games too. Everyone in our family - from the adults to all kids (ages 18, 16, 12, 9 & 7) enjoyed the trip and the house immensely! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your little piece of paradise :)
