About David E.

This house has been in our family for 40+ years. We have spent countless hours updating it and making it feel like a second home. Hopefully you'll appreciate the house and family environment that Topsail Beach has to offer after staying there. Enjoy.

David E. purchased this house in 1970

What makes this house unique

Public beach access is within 200 yards of the front door. The beach is quiet and well maintained. This quaint get away is just perfect for a getaway vacation.

Perfect fit!

  • 5 of 5

House met all of our needs and was a nice, quiet, relaxing stay. Owner was responsive to any questions. Beach is very close! Would definitely stay here again. Only drawback was the horseflies were out and biting on the beach.

This was our first time using HomeAway and renting a house for vacation. This house exceeded all expectations!! The owner was so friendly and accommodating, and very responsive to messages! The house was excellent. So clean and cozy with all the amenities we could need! The beach access was a short walking distance and the beach wasn't too crowded, making for an awesome trip and experience! We also brought our family pet who has had a blast going to the beach with us! The beach was extremely pet friendly! The outdoor showers were a great added bonus to showering our family and pet off before entering the home after a fun day on the beach! We would definitely come back here again!

Great low-key vacation spot with everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

Great location just across the street from an awesome public beach (white sand, minimal stones, perfect waves, not crowded at all). Views were not as good as they appeared in the photos as a sizable motel is right between the house and the ocean, but at this price we didn't mind. House was comfortable though not everything was in the greatest condition. Nice extras like beach umbrellas, chairs, games, and TV/DVD players made us feel right at home. Plenty of space for a family of 6 plus our dog (8 people would have been a bit cozy). This location is very near the tip of Topsail Island, which is wonderful in its own way, but there isn't much in terms of stores or restaurants there, so be sure to get your groceries in neighboring Surf City on your way in.
