Come and try the 'Larry’s Lazy Susan Experience' at Topsail Beach for a Lazy relaxing refreshing vacation which our guests have enjoyed for 20 years. Larry’s Lazy Susan has been recently expanded and renovated by myself an Architect to provide you with a relaxing home to experience the beauty and wonderful sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean.

Your family will enjoy Larry’s Lazy Susan a peaceful Lazy getaway at our beach house only a short drive from shopping, dining, golf, fishing and other activities. The house is located on a secondary street off the beaten path great for jogging and cycling. You will feel like you are literally on the beach with only a few steps, COME SEE HOW CLOSE!!

Larry’s Lazy Susan has two wonderful oceanfront decks for your family and friends to enjoy. An intimate upper deck allows you a panoramic view of the beaches below. Enjoy sitting up here and relaxing in the warm Carolina sun. The lower deck offers a cooler, shaded retreat to sit on while watching your children play in the sand.

Bring your fishing poles and try surf fishing, you may catch something great for dinner! Our house accommodates up to 15 guests with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.

Larry’s Lazy Susan is a short drive to downtown(approximately ( 5 miles)

A typical day for us includes morning coffee on the ocean side deck watching the shrimp boats just off shore dragging their nets, birds flocking behind feeding on the left over shrimp and fish. The dolphins trailing behind and the pelicans are floating in formation along the shore.

After a walk on the beach looking for shells and sharks teeth, we decide to set up our beach chairs and umbrella for a day of sun bathing and swimming in the surf. We take a break to play some beach games, volleyball and fly a kite.

After a fun filled beach day and as the sun begins to set on the sound side, a beautiful view is afforded from the three decks on the street side. After dinner is prepared in the kitchen which has a view of both the ocean and the sound, the dining room which seats 8 at a square table has a wonderful view of the setting sun across the sound, the breakfast/dining area has ocean view dining seating 6 at a rectangle table where you can enjoy the ocean breeze. Having this dining area located off of the living area provides the gamers in the family a great place to play games, put together puzzles!

The kitchen also has bar seating for three on bar stools where the family can join in on the preparation of dinner.

Come, enjoy and make your own memories at Topsail Island and Larry’s Lazy Susan. You will LOVE the 'LAZY SUSAN EXPERIENCE'

About Larry Martin

I am a self employed architect in Virginia, which has been very beneficial with our great beach house since we have renovated and added additional rooms recently in 2011. Susan and I have six children that were all young when we purchased the house. The house was perfect for our family but now that our family has grown, we expanded and renovated to provide more room.

Larry Martin purchased this house in 1994

Why Larry Martin chose Ocean City Beach

We vacationed at North Topsail Beach for two years prior to purchasing and rented our house the summer before we purchased. We love the secluded beach only a few steps from our deck (about as close as you can get). A great place to bring the family for a relaxing LAZY vacation. We love to swim, surf fish, boat and jet ski, fly kites, play in the surf, hunt for shells and sharks teeth of which we have thousands. Other activities include golfing, tennis, biking, etc. The house is on a less traveled street off of the main road (less commercial traffic), but very easily accessible and many conveniences within 5 minutes including several restaurants with affordable prices.

What makes this house unique

We are able to view nature at its finest, watching the dolphins play in the ocean, pelicans and gulls flying in formation, watching loggerhead turtles laying their eggs and watching them hatch at our steps to the beach(which we have done). Views that are spectacular from all rooms, multiple ocean and sound side decks and the PROXIMITY of the house to the ocean. The ELEVATOR which is extremely helpful for the elderly, disabled and moving in luggage. The separate under counter 50# ICE MAKER is a must for plenty of ice for drinks and coolers.

Great beach experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week at Topsail, staying at Larry's Lazy Susan. We love this location - right on the beach and on a quiet street as well. The kitchen was well-equipped and convenient. The bedroom configurations upstairs are a little strange and we could have done without the skylights in the bedrooms, but otherwise we loved staying here and hope to return.

Owner's Response: Marianne, our house is as you said “right on the beach” as we say “you can’t get much closer”. Located on the Topsail Road is a side street providing quiet street great for jogging and cycling. The kitchen and dining area were expanded when we added two extra bedrooms and baths. The addition of the elevator dictated the arrangement of the upstairs bedrooms since the elevator provided access to all upstairs bedrooms including the original two plus an additional bedroom-bath suite in addition to the access provided by the spiral stair. The skylights were part of the original house, which do provide extra natural light in addition to the windows. The extra light is good to get up and going so not to miss the best beach time usually in the mornings. We are glad you loved it and please return, Thanks, Larry

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

This house is located immediately on the beach. Access is just one flight of steps. The house is very well kept and beautifully appointed. The bedroom layout is a little different but adjustment was easy. The elevator is a great addition and helps solve the bedroom access. Great house, great stay. Looking forward to staying next year.

Owner's Response: Tamara, location, location, location, you are right we are very close to the beach. If you want to be on the beach, we got it. We expanded the house seven years ago to add the elevator, expanded kitchen dining area and additional bedrooms and baths. Even though I am an architect, this was still somewhat difficult. The original house had only a spiral stair to the second level, with the elevator we were able to have better access and add living space. We are glad you had a wonderful stay and see you next year, Thanks, Larry

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent, we were never crowded on the beach and had plenty of room inside when it stormed. The elevator was helpful in getting luggage in and out. Larry reached out to us the first day we were there and encouraged us to contact him with any problems!

Owner's Response: Jill, we are located in an area of the beach with less traffic than most. We are located on a side street off the main road, great for waking, cycling and jogging. Our guests love the elevator and under counter 50 LB ice maker. We try to call all our guests and offer any assistance to help them have a wonderful vacation. Please return, thanks for the review, Larry

Great house with an even better location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our vacation. There was plenty of space for our big group to enjoy themselves. The kitchen has updated appliances and almost every cooking accessory (pots/pans, etc) that you could want. The proximity to the beach couldn’t be beat, and there was enough room on the deck to put a small inflatable pool for when the kids got sick of the sand. Larry called us the day after we arrived, which was a nice touch. Overall, we couldn’t ask for a better vacation and look forward to coming back!

Just as a side note, we rented our linens from Mom and Me Rentals and they were waiting on the porch when we arrived, and were in perfect condition!

Owner's Response: Kelsey, we are glad you had a great time. Our house including the kitchen is well equipped for large groups. We have tried to equip the kitchen, so most items needed to prepare a gourmet meal are available. Our location is located on a side street off the main road providing more privacy and less traffic, great for walking, jogging, riding bikes and great for children. We recently expanded our beach deck which does provide enough room to have a small pool, which we have for our grandchildren. We recommend Me and Mom Rentals for linens, so it is good to hear of your satisfaction. We also offer these as an option to our guests when booking. Please do return, we love repeat guests, Thanks, Larry

We had a phenomenal week at the beach house! Being located at the northern end of the island and away from the more crowded beaches was so nice. This was our first time renting a house right on the beach and I'm afraid I've spoiled my family. We loved having the convenience of being able to step right off the beach into the comfort of the house. The option of being able to go out onto the beach or enjoy the view from the deck was choice.

The house was perfect for us. We only had 8 staying so there was plenty of room for us. Having a daughter in a wheelchair we fully utilized the accessibility the house provided. The kitchen was nicely equipped....we loved having a waffle maker and a blender to use!

Overall we had a fantastic stay. We look forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: Ray, we are glad you had a great week at our house. Our location is nice being further away from the crowds on the beach. We also love being right on the beach and is very convenient for a family with children. Our beach deck is large enough for a large family and provides a great view of the beach. We are located off a side street providing extra privacy from the traffic on the main road. We had just replaced out kitchen tops with granite and stainless appliances. Our kitchen is well equipped including a 50# ice maker under the buffet. This is an amenity moist of our guests love. Thanks for the review and please come again, Larry

Great location! Right on the beach! Large deck to enjoy. Larry’s Lazy Susan was a little underwhelming at first, dated in some areas, but the longer we stayed the more comfortable we felt and the more we enjoyed it. The family had a great time and has started talking about a revisit.

Owner's Response: Esther, we are right on the beach, you can’t get much closer. Our deck overlooking the beach has been enlarged with both open and enclosed showers with hot and cold water and a lot of places to sit and relax. Great for watching the children on the beach. We are always making improvements to our home with the recent upgrade of granite countertops and stainless appliances in the kitchen and new furniture and decor in the living and dining areas. We are always interested in our guest’s comments and try to provide our guests with an experience well worth the expense. Please do return, we love repeat guests. Thanks, Larry
