About Chris Carrigan

We currently live in Raleigh, NC. I am a native while Chris grew up in Massachusetts. We have 3 daughters and one on the way. 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 Topsail Island

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!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our final Girl Scout get away. Three Moms and nine girls (all High School Seniors) made the trip. We had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful home in a great location. The beach, the views, the pool and hot tub - everything was wonderful. We enjoyed playing the card and board games and corn hole that the owner leaves available to renters. The owner was very responsive to all my questions. I would definitely recommend this rental and I hope to visit again with family.

Paradise in Carolina

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent an awesome week at Carrigan's Place. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed from dinnerware to every size pot and pan imaginable. All of the bedrooms were nicely sized, the decor was beachy, and the mattresses were comfy. We all spent a great deal of time either at the pool, which was equipped with all kinds of pool toys, or at the beach, which was our own little slice of paradise. There are no words to describe the overwhelmingly beautiful view of the ocean from the oceanfront deck. If we weren't sleeping, eating, or swimming, we were on the deck. And my husband all but cried tears of joy over the convenience of having an elevator! We have vacationed at many different beach locations, but our week at Carrigan's Place was the best by far. We have never rented the same house twice, but that is about to change. Our two year old grandson pretty much summed it up when, after returning to the house and pulling into the driveway after being out t-shirt shopping, he declared, "We're home!"

Amazing place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Carrigan’s Place. My mom has always wanted to get the whole family together for a beach vacation and this was the perfect spot for us. Everyone had their space, the kids loved the bunk beds, the oceanfront bedrooms were truly oceanfront and the master bathroom was enormous. The house was clean and had several nice features like the elevator, the tiki bar, the outdoor shower, the hot tub and the kids had a lot of fun swimming in the evenings with the underwater pool light. The views are incredible and it was great to be so close to the beach. I also wanted to highlight I used the recommended grocery service and it was excellent. Very easy to use and it was wonderful to arrive to a fully stocked fridge and pantry. I would definitely rent this house again. We had an amazing week, thank you again for sharing your home with us.

If you would rather not wake up in the morning and watch dolphins jumping from your deck. If you would rather not sit with a cold adult beverage in a hot tub while listening to the waves crash. If you would rather not enjoy a pool prior to walking off your the deck onto the beach. If you would rather not enjoy time spent around a poolside Tiki Bar. If you don't enjoy space for kids to play and adults to have adult time. If you would rather walk up stairs as opposed to taking the elevator. If you would rather not have an ice maker for frozen drinks. If you would rather be miserable. . . . then this is not the place for you. 10 years and counting it has been the place for our family and friends. 4 adults 6 kids plenty of space. We are looking forward to our next trip in April!!!

World Cup Viewing

House was clean and had all of the amenities for a great week at the beach. Only glitch was a broken HVAC that was promptly repaired when the owner was notified. Delightful breeze on the upstairs deck.

Wonderful week at Topsail

  • 5 of 5

Carrigans Place was perfect for my family and two other families that stayed the week. Great beach where we saw dolphins swimming one day. Loved the big pool and the hot tub was used everyday! I will definitely be back next year!
