Beautiful, secluded just steps to the beach. Clean and comfortable, beautiful and light!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the quiet, private location of this house! We especially loved the outdoor shower which is a must with kids and the beach! Just steps from the most beautiful beach we were able to take the kids as many times a day as we wanted. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything you might need for cooking meals at home. We will definitely come again!!

Quiet, family friendly, and lovely

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, family friendly, and lovely place to stay, this is it. The Serenity Point community was very nice and well taken care of. The beach access was a few houses down one direction and the pool a few houses away the other. There is also access to the sound side of the island a very short walk away as well, which I highly recommend checking out especially at sunset. The community is very aptly named. The view from the master was spectacular, eating breakfast on the back deck was serene, and walking on the beach in the morning to the uninhabited south end of the island was so peaceful. Even later in the day visiting the beach was not a crowded affair, plenty of room to spread out and not feel "on top" of another group. They have made some upgrades in the kitchen which was very nice. We have a pretty major food allergy in the family with a super common ingredient so that means we don't eat out because of cross contamination concerns and I spend lots of time in the kitchen, so the updates were appreciated. The enclosed outdoor shower got more use than I thought and now I wouldn't consider a beach rental without one. It does take a bit to get to any restaurants or shopping from this location, but I understood that going in and was part of the appeal for me. We didn't have bikes, but we could have biked to the restaurants/shopping area at a cooler time of year. August in Topsail was very hot away from the water. Groceries and other essentials you will need to drive to as TP, soap, etc are not included in the rental. I would stay here again in a heart beat and would recommend it to my friends and family.

My suggestions for the rental: For the next updates I would consider replacing the carpet on the stairs and the back deck nails could use some attention. It did look like some work had been done to the front deck so possibly the back deck is next. Consider offering some basic beach equipment with the rental, chairs and a sturdy umbrella.

Other recommendation: We loved visiting The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center in Surf City as we had two young kids along and the adults learned a lot too. My suggestions would be to go early there was a line already started a half hour before opening when we got there and take an umbrella for shade on super hot days.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a wonderful time and we hope you'll come back and stay with us. It sounds like you caught a few of our glorious sunsets. There's really no better place on the island to sit back and feel the last warm rays seep into your skin on hot summer nights. It's lovely to hear you enjoyed the house as much as we do, and took advantage of the peace and quiet of Serenity Point. Thanks for your feedback, and we hope to see you soon!

My husband and I LOVE Topsail Beach. This home was exactly what we needed and had everything it listed. The listing agent was a gem to schedule with as well. We would recommend this home for other couples and or small families. The Serenity community is incredible. Quite, well mana cured and friendly. You are a short drive away from great restaurants and shopping. We love that at Topsail, you are supporting local businesses. No chains! Everyone at Topsail are so friendly. They appreciate that you choose their home to vacation and their businesses to shop and dine in. If you want a family friendly area to vacation at, Topsail is your place!

peaceful but bare

  • 3 of 5

We should have done more research about Topsail before we rented here. The condo was clean, had some outdated decor, but basically looked as it was advertised. The beach is easy to access and very wide and beautiful with views of the southern end of the island. The draw back of having this solitude meant having to drive 20 minutes to find more restaurants, stores, and night life (what little is there). Our southern end had only 3 small restaurants and some stores that closed by 6 PM. Coming from out of town via the airport we were a bit disappointed to find the condo was completely bare of any essentials - soap, detergent, toilet paper, beach chairs, etc. Linens were provided but not put on the bed for us and we had to rent beach chairs. In the past, we have rented beach & lake condos and houses that kept all the beach gear you needed (chairs, coolers, toys, etc.) and basic necessities including towels, soaps, linens for your use. The next renter benefited nicely from our expense as we had to stock up on everything at the IGA and couldn't take anything home with us. The condo rules even stated that everything in the fridge should be thrown out. Really? We had 12 packs of pop and beer left over. . . In conclusion, we were bored and a little disappointed. This is a fine place for someone driving there who is willing to provide all their own supplies and wants a completely quiet vacation.

Owner's Response: Gosh... I don't know what to say! I'm so sorry you did not enjoy your time on Topsail Island... "peaceful family time" is what the island offers and as a matter of fact we were just voted in the "Top Ten most least crowded beaches." So, yes, we are a quiet beach with some shopping and several really nice restaurants. You stayed at the southern most end of our 26 mile island. It sounds like you may have been looking for a more commercialized area... We hope you will come back again one day when you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday... :)
