Beautiful spacious home in the center of Surf City on beautiful Topsail Island. This location provides the best of all-eateries, shopping and many vacation activities, not to mention having the use of a boat dock. You can do it all, or just lay on your deck on your private beach and watch the ocean. Spectacular sunrises await you each morning over the ocean. This comfortable and spacious home provides all the amenities of home, not to mention your backyard being the ocean! Put in flat screen TV's for your viewing enjoyment and temperpetic mattress toppers that make the beds sooo comfortable!
We are a family of nine, and absolutely love this house! Living in New Jersey, it is such a treat to see the ocean everywhere you look!
The Owner purchased this house in 2012
Spacious, and beautiful setting on the ocean.
Parking you boat for up to 48 hours at a time-
What views!!! I just got back from this home and cannot wait to go back. This is the perfect location and such a beachy house. Perfect set up for a family with kids and I can bring my DOG!
The house is on a great section of beach and the house being dog friendly was a true bonus for our family. The beach was beautiful as was the water.
The house was clean, the appliances worked and we found some good places nearby to eat and drink.
Unfortunately that photographs on VRBO do not reflect the true condition of the house which was disappointing and had we not driven so far with young children, the dogs and a friend flying in from the UK, we may have just turned around and driven home to NJ.
The paint / wallpaper on walls, doors and ceilings was peeling significantly. Damp patches on the ceilings. Small holes in some walls from disrepair. A tarp still on the chimney covering hurricane damage. Eaves in need of some attention. Sharp bits were peeling away from the main entrance door. Ventilation covers were rusting. A single bed placed under the stairs. Light bulbs not replaced. Curtain rails coming away from the wall. The stairs to the beach were buried under sand and I had to dig it out as we have young children.
As a volunteer fire fighter I was also disappointed to find smoke detectors not working (not just a case of replacing the batteries but the sensors also tend to fail after ten years) and permanent use of extension cables (which are a primary cause of electrical fires in houses)
I originally included a link to a Flickr album of photos that I took of the house, however VRBO does not allow links in the reviews and there does not appear to be an option to include photos in the review itself.
Ahead of our booking, the owner was responsive by email but handled all of the booking arrangements outside of VRBO and unlike other vacation property owners there was no rental agreement used by the owner.
People may find this house great value for money especially being dog friendly and right on the beach, but I share this review so that people can see the actual condition of the property from the Flickr album rather than the original pictures on the website.
The best part of the house is the view. It's magnificent.
The house itself was decent. All the showers functioned, the appliances ran fine (although the dishwasher didn't seem to clean very well), and the air conditioning worked. It does need some general home maintenance work. In addition, the property could have been cleaner. It was clean enough for the week, but it definitely needs a deeper cleaning. The steps from the deck to the beach are buried in sand worse than any of the other properties around it. It makes walking to and from the beach very difficult.
The only other thing that I can say is that the photos of the property need to be updated. There are duplicate photos and some of the furniture is different than what is in the photos as is the color of the house, which was a bit confusing when we first arrived. To be clear, the photos currently listed do not misrepresent the property by any means they simply are out of date.
Would we stay at this property again? In its current condition, I'm not sure. We enjoyed our time at the beach and the house suited our needs and our budget.
This house is perfect for families! We had the best time of our lives, we will be coming back thank you!!
I stumbled across this property looking for a little bit bigger space on the beach and am extremely satisfied with my experience. The owner was quick to respond and set our reservation up very quickly. Additionally, she was quick to respond and very personable. The house itself was very spacious and made for a beautiful, private vacation. Our family will be taking another trip to this house whenever our schedule allows another vacation!
Having never been to topsail island, I was pleasantly surprised with how great and spacious the house was. It was a very serene environment, perfect for a short getaway. The view was just breathtaking. Definitely will be visiting again.
