About the property

4 Bedroom Oceanfront Duplex

Your vacation search ends with Five Buoys! Five Buoys features a Keyless entry system...No key to lose or forget! Whether you're seeking a comfortable 4 bedroom, 3 bath duplex, or rent both Five Buoys North and South and turn this into an 8 bedroom, 6 bath getaway for your entire family! Five Buoys screams comfort and style. Convenient to Surf City and Sneads Ferry and located directly on the quiet beach of North Topsail, Five Buoys is exactly what you've been looking for!

Five Buoys South is on the left hand side of the duplex. Convenient to Surf City and Sneads Ferry shopping, dining and entertainment, Five Buoys is just far enough away to enjoy a quiet vacation on the beach.

Entering into the kitchen, the summer sun gleans off a wall of glass filling the room with the cool blue hue of the ocean. Continue through the home and into the large living room and dining area with sliding glass doors to the ocean and beach access.

One bedroom is located on the main floor to the rear of the home with it's own private balcony on the sound side. Upstairs, the master bedroom is oceanside with a private balcony overlooking the ocean. The remaining two bedrooms are in the rear of the home and each have access to a soundfront deck as well.

The amenities, grill, beach chairs, linens, etc we provide would cost $500-600 from local rental companies.

About Phil & Bonnie White

Bonnie and I both grew up 'near' the beach (Thus, we're 'flatlanders'!) and enjoy being at the beach in the summer as well as in the winter. We pride ourselves on maintain rental property 'with all the amenities' to be enjoyed by our visitors. The name? I have three (3) 'buoys' and Bonnie has two (2)...Thus, the five (5) 'buoys'!

Phil & Bonnie White purchased this house in 2004

Why Phil & Bonnie White chose Topsail Island

This is a wonderful duplex with four bedrooms on each side. Well insulated so that one side is not 'bothered' by the other side. Renting both sides provides for a great 'family reunion'.

Nice Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Fivbuoys North. Had a bit of an "ant" problem, but that's part of the beach. Owner sprayed, but you can't keep those little devils out. Owner very responsive to guest and makes them feel comfortable.

Our time spent at Fivebuoys North & South was fantastic, with it having been December 2015 that the family was together. Everyone enjoyed the comfort of the houses & the beach access was great, with the deck walk & seating area close to the beach, especially with having 5 dogs. We’d spent a lot of summers at Topsail Beach, but never that far north. We will likely travel that way again.

Easter Fun 2015

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying at 5 Buoys South a few weeks ago over Easter. We absolutely loved the location, we truly enjoyed having the sand and surf right outside our window. The unit was very comfortable and spacious for our family of 5 adults and 2 kids. The proximity to the bridge and our family in Sneads Ferry was super convenient. We would stay here again for sure.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the north and south side for a week in September and had the most fabulous time! We had 3 families with us and 7 kids and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The houses were both so clean and accommodating. We loved that the beach was right outside of our door! The kids all had the best time playing together all week. We will all definitely be back next September! What a beautiful rental. Thanks so much Phil and Bonnie for giving us a great week of memories!

Review of Five Buoys South

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our 3 week vacation. It was immaculately clean and came with every extra feature we could possibly ask for. Phil and Bonnie White obviously care about their property and their renters. We have been coming to the beaches of North Carolina for 24 years and this was the best property ever!!!

Amazing View !!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much Bonnie & Phil for a beautiful place to stay with my parents and our kids. Walking out the door and toes being in the sand that quickly was worth every penny. The house is well maintained throughout and the kitchen was fully stocked for all of our wonderful meals in. Phil, thanks so much for the quick response when we couldn't figure out the downstairs shower for my parents lol; it was a true pleasure to meet you and have you so close by if we needed anything. Looking at renting it for two weeks next summer and cannot wait :)
