About Chris Carrigan

We currently live in Raleigh, NC. I am a native while Chris grew up in Massachusetts. We have 4 daughters. We built this house 16 years ago when our oldest was 5 months old. Our children have grown up at this house with years of memories playing on the beach.

Chris Carrigan purchased this house in 2001

Why Chris Carrigan chose North Topsail Beach

We built this house with Chris's parents. In 2011 we lost Chris's father so this house holds dear to our hearts. He loved and cherished this beach house. We hope you can create some great memories as we have over the last 16 years.

What makes this house unique

We put the elevator in for the elderly, or anyone needing special assistance as well as carrying luggage and groceries. We love the privacy of the beach. The pool is a fun afternoon activity after a wonderful day on the beach that offers plenty of shade at your private Tiki bar. Most recently installed a hot tub 2013 and just love it!

We were reasonably satisfied but experienced a lot of problems

This is to let you know that to date we have not received our security deposit back from Chris. He sent an email to us a while back asking for our address so he could send it, but so far he has not sent it. We will soon pursue legal action, and intent to name VRBO in addition to Chris. We would like to get this resolved and would appreciate your assistance. Please respond

We had our whole family with us (13) It was comfortable and nicely furnished.-beach was beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves and the tiki bar and pool were a big hit. Our grandchildren loved swimming in the pool in the afternoons when it got too hot on the beach. The views from the decks were spectacular and we enjoyed gathering at night to see the moon and stars as we all sat around and talked. There was space for family games, meals, and entertaining other family members who were renting nearby houses. It was a great week of love and comraderie!

Family had so much fun; loved the convenience of the elevator for shopping;.The pool was the greatest asset. Sunrises and sunsets by the ocean can't be beat. Saw dolphins on a short cruise; great thrill for the kids! Owners were very responsive with any small issues we had. Thank you Chris & Brook!

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

There are 13 people from 12 to 70 years old. This lovely home handled it all. Plenty of room for everyone. Since there are several levels, if people need some private time that is available. Several decks both front and back for quiet time. Beautiful pool, hot tub, and of course the ocean. Great beach that is very family friendly. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, silverware, pots and pans. Well used dish washer and laundry facilities that were used constantly. Two large refrigerators, and large pantry. This house has an elevator that was great for all those trips with luggage and groceries. All we had to bring were our personal items, clothes and bath towels. House is situated on a quiet street. We liked staying at this house so much, we only left for food, and to the Turtle Rescue. We saw a turtle release down the beach from us, went sand crabbing at night, and played in the waves and pool all day. Plenty of room to play board games, or watch a movie. Looked for shells along the beach and flew kites. Saw a lot of small fishing boats, and many Pelicans. Awesome helicopters from military base, and other aircraft gave us a show during our stay flying up and down the beach. Beautiful rain storm with lighting on the ocean the day we left. A great family stay.
