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 North Topsail 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.

We loved the remote feel of the beach with nearby access to restaurants, stores and drinking holes.... something for everyone. We loved Larry's Lazy Susan and plan to visit again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Christy, glad to hear you found the watering holes and other attractions. Topsail is quaint which makes it so desirable. Our house is located on a quiet street not far from great restaurants and shopping. We do have great views of the ocean and sound and very close to the beach, which feels like you are right on the beach. Please do come again and enjoy all we have to offer, Thanks, Larry

                                                                  Great cottage. Just right for our group. 11 people.

                                                                  Karl B.Wilmington, NC

                                                                  We enjoyed our annual winter beach trip. Larry's Lazy Susan is a great place. The elevator is just what some of us old folks need. Easy access to the beach. Plenty of parking. Nice deck and furniture. Kitchen has about everything that you might need. This is our second year here, and we plan to reserve it for next year. That's how much we like it.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Karl, we are so glad you returned this year for your annual beach trip. We have great views of the beach and ocean from our living area and expanded deck. We are extremely close to the beach with easy access which is extremely important in a beach house. The elevator is a great amenity along with the 50# ice maker in our well-equipped kitchen. We are glad you are coming back next year, look forward to having you as one of our many repeat guests. Thanks for the review, Larry

                                                                  Great location!

                                                                  Kathryn C.

                                                                  We loved the oceanfront views and all of the sliding doors that allowed for the ample views! The only issue we had was seating in the common living room for all 12 of us; however our stay was in January so we couldn’t use the magnificent porch and seating out there as much as we could have in warmer months.

                                                                  Owner's Response:


                                                                  Great views are a must at the beach, which we can provide by being so close to the beach. We have multiple decks facing the ocean and the sound allowing great views of each. Our living area with all the glass doors and windows provide a closeness to the ocean. Our expanded oceanfront deck is great in warmer weather for relaxing and having cocktails overlooking the beach. The living area does have some limitations on seating, however, the loft also overlooks the beach and provides additional seating. Some of our family enjoy the loft, providing a location for solitude and more private space where one can read and enjoy the beach views. We are glad you had a good time and enjoyed our home, please come again,

                                                                  Thanks, Larry

Loved being able to soak in sun even in the living room. The elevator makes traveling so much easier to deal with. We made great memories to carry us into the new year! Thanks for letting us fellowship in such a beautiful home.

The views from the living area of the ocean and beach are spectacular with all of the glass. The elevator is great for moving luggage, groceries and older folks. We are always concerned about providing a clean and comfortable house for our guests. Please come again, making more memories and enjoy the Lazy Susan Experience, Thanks, Larry

                                                                  Wonderful Vacation

                                                                  Dennis W.

                                                                  Topsail Island is by far our favorite beach and we have stayed in several different places over the years but this place is now our favorite. The layout of the house was perfect for our family and 2 dogs to relax and not feel like we were crowded. Everything in the house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen turned out great for our Thanksgiving dinner and all the other meals we enjoyed while there. As for location, it's the best! Very convenient to both ends of the Island and you can't get closer to the surf. Everyone in my family is ready to book again for next year and hopefully we will do that soon.

                                                                  Thanks Larry for checking in on us to make sure all was OK and thanks for sharing your house with us.

                                                                  The Woody Family.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Dennis, Topsail Island does have great beaches and our house is in a great location, off the main road on a side street. This location is great for biking, jogging and walking away from any congestion and as we say you can’t get much closer to the beach as you have also stated. Our kitchen is perfect for preparing family meals with plenty of seating with views of the ocean and sound. We are always happy to check in on our guests to make sure everything is acceptable to our guests. Our number one priority is our guest’s satisfaction. We look forward to your return next year, thanks for your review, Larry

                                                                  Wonderful week!

                                                                  Doug T.

                                                                  Larry's Lazy Susan was a fantastic house. Plenty of room for our family of six and three dogs. The elevator was a big help with my mother in-law who is in a wheel chair. Also nice being able to load all the "stuff" you bring into the house in just a few short trips.

                                                                  The new appliances in the kitchen were nice. We cooked most of our meals and there was plenty of plates and silverware to go around. Having the washer and dryer on the main floor was also a big plus. Big screen TV in the great room had a wonderful picture and we also brought our Fire Stick to watch Netfix on one raining day. Nothing like 9 hours of binge watching every episode of Stranger Things.

                                                                  The access to the beach was also a huge plus! This is the first house we have rented right on the beach. My wife is big on looking for sharks teeth and we had a great collection by the end of the week. I think she found over a hundred teeth. Being November, we had great, quite long walks on the beach with hardly anyone around. Great to sit on the porch drinking coffee and watching the shrimp boats go up and down the coast just a few hundred yards from the beach. We went to a local fish market and bought some local shrimp and scallops and they were awesome!

                                                                  North Topsail Beach is a beautiful area and we hope to come back again next year. Thanks Larry for letting our family enjoy your beautiful home.

                                                                  Doug, Kim, Kasey, Kelsey Thomas

The elevator is great for unloading luggage and is wheel chair accessible. Our kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances and is great for preparing family meals. We have televisions in all rooms and most large flat screens. We do have high speed internet which works well for all streaming services. We have found thousands of shark teeth right in front of the house. We have found as many as a 1000 in one week, all sizes. Our oceanfront deck has been expanded doubled in size providing a great way to enjoy the beach. We always purchase fresh seafood and prepare in our kitchen, you don’t get any better. Thanks for the great review and please come back next year, Larry
