Welcome to Catie's Cove!!! Enjoy a spacious 2000 square feet beachfront luxury home on prime beach. Surf City’s beach is just off your own deck and the fishing pier is only a few minutes stroll away! With no streets between you and the sand, this is beach living at its best!

Catie’s Cove, which is named after one of our twin daughters, offers 3 very generous bedrooms stylishly furnished and over 2000 square feet of relaxation space, you and your group will find your vacation actually more enjoyable because our home is larger than most of the 4 bedroom houses (and even some of the 5 bedroom ones) for rent because you’ll have plenty of space to gather and to relax!

We carefully chose our (2012 was the 1st rental year) furnishings to maximize your comfort while accommodating up to 10 guests “in real mattress beds” and up to 15 guests if needed using convertible sofas.

Off Street parking for up to 5 cars, with 2-3 spaces covered!

BBQ Fun! You’ll have complimentary use of the gas BBQ grill with a picnic table to keep the party close to the food.

We have plenty of beach chairs plus a deck box at the beach filled with children’s beach chairs; umbrellas and lots of beach toys (buckets, shovels, kites, boogie boards, trucks, and more). Don’t stress about bringing toys for the beach, there’s plenty already!

Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen (awesome cookware, blender, coffee machine, fun beach dishes, plenty of barware and kids cup & plates) to prepare your feasts! Open floor plan so you never miss any of the action inside or outside on the beach!

There’s a pair of front-load LG state of the art washer and dryer units if you need them!

About Sharon Rice Chua

Formerly from San Diego, I have a strong love for the beach! We moved from California to NC and fell in love with Topsail Island. I spend my time chasing my twin toddler daughters (Catie and Isabelle) and found Topsail Island a wonderful place for family adventures! We now have 2 properties available, each named after one of our twins. Catie’s Cove was available for vacation rentals last year 2012 and Belle’s Beach will be available this year for 2013 rentals! Belle’s Beach will have the same high end level of amenities as Catie’s Cove. New furnishings and thoughtful planning will ensure a comfortable and wonderful time!

Thank you for looking and I hope we can books your best vacation ever!

Sharon Rice Chua purchased this house in 2011

Why Sharon Rice Chua chose Topsail Island

Surf City offers a wonderful family friendly beach that's in close proximity to Raleigh and Wilmington Airport. Topsail island offers the beautiful beach and kid friendly atmosphere for a great, relaxing vacation! We also, like to do updates to keep it fresh for our clients that come back year after year. This year the living room has a facelift with new soft leather sofa, with awesome accent chairs. In addition, Catie's cove had a new calming paint job to allow you to really unwind and enjoy the ocean view!

What makes this house unique

Everything you may want is only steps away! No street to cross gives us peace of mind and convenience, especially if you have children who need to go back and forth to the house and beach. You won't feel Closter phobic. Watch out for other rentals with 4 or 5 bedrooms but have 500-600 squarefeet LESS than our home. The space actually helps you relax and unwind vs. being cramped on vacation! Plus, only 3 blocks to the center of Surf city so walking to one of the restaurents or shops is a favorite thing to do!

So relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We moved to Maryland a few years ago but have a house right down the street that's being rented. We had to get our dose of heaven so of course we came to Surf City. This little house made us feel right at home and had everything we could need for our stay! Thank you owners!

Great Oceanfront Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a beach vacation. The house was very clean and the decorations were well coordinated and "beachy". Very close to restaurants and the pier. The view from the house was fabulous (didn't spot any dolphins tho). All the rooms were large and cozy. I enjoyed working with the owner, Sharon, who was very helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Great stay, will return!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at caties cove. The home was clean, very comfortable and it was great being just steps from the beach. We loved that the bedrooms were all very spacious and we especially appreciated the amount of beach toys, boogie boards and beach chairs at the home for our use. Sharon and her family were very gracious and so easy to work with. We look forward to renting this beach house again.
