Why Sharon Rice Chua chose Surf City

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 face-lift 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 Cloister phobic. Watch out for other rentals with 4 or 5 bedrooms but have 500-600 square feet 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 restaurants or shops is a favorite thing to do!

It was a great place, as shown on photos. Kids loved it

  • 4 of 5

It was all true how the owners advertised Catie's Cove. It was big, nicely furnished, well equipped. It had this pleasant, cool and casual vibe that we liked. Kids had lots of fun and loved the house, playing board games, xbox or table soccer. We loved the ocean view. Surf City is a perfect size town. Not too crowded or loud. The only thing that keep me from giving 5 star review was the fact that we rented half of the double house. Next door were neighbors that shared bbq area, and our deck area was separated only by a thin wall. It would be great to be there with friends as our comfort depended somehow on other people's habits.

Owner's Response: Hello Guest, We are happy to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay at Catie's Cove. We have tried to create separate spaces for both homes with two BBQ grills and separate seating areas. We have installed a dividing wall to offer privacy. We hope you understand the only way to have the whole duplex with people you know is to rent the whole house :-)

Catie's Cove is AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Catie's Cove! It was beautifully decorated and perfectly located right on the beach! It was so convenient to walk out of our condo right on to the beach! We were also within walking distance of several places to eat to grab a quick dinner as well as grabbing some ice cream or snowballs afterwards! It was also nice having a grocery store nearby as well as a few shops with souvenirs. We also got to meet the owners who couldn't be any nicer! They were so welcoming and helpful answering any of our questions. We couldn't have loved it anymore!! Thanks for a great vacation!!!

Comfortable home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families had six kids between us (ages 3-9) and this home was the perfect fit for us. It's stocked with board games, books and sand toys for the kids, which is a really thoughtful touch. The foos ball table was a huge hit and we loved that it was in the family room so we could keep an eye on the kids while getting meals ready. Everything was clean and comfortable. The home's location was a huge bonus. We brought scooters for all the kids and were within walking distance of the grocery store and some great, family friendly restaurants (Shaka Taco, Daddy Mac's and the Fractured Prune (doughnuts)). We appreciated that we could walk to everything we needed and did not need our cars once we got there.

Great Location and Terrific Property Owner

  • 5 of 5

What a great location! The house was perfect for our family of six. It was well equipped with fun things for kids like the "Cousins Room" and the foosball table. The view, the beach access, the short walk to restaurants and the quiet neighborhood surroundings all contributed to our perfect long weekend.
