About the property

6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms. Sleeps 16 (or see prop. ID #185056 for our 12 BDRM)

Located on Topsail Island, North Topsail Beach is a barrier island with the Atlantic on one side and the Intra Coastal Waterway on the other. Our home has its' own beach on the ocean. Since North Topsail is primarily residential, the beaches are seldom crowded. In the summer, our weather is usually about 10 degrees cooler than the mainland because of those off shore breezes. Since we are only a 2 minute drive to the bridge to the mainland, grocery and other shopping and restaurants are only about a 7 minute drive. The home was custom built by the owner, who was the general contractor, in 2007. It has been elegantly and tastefully furnished and outfitted.

The views are even more breath taking from the second floor which includes the great room, kitchen, and dining areas. These common areas were designed with an open plan to maximize the views. Similarly, the corner fire place, with a 45" flat screen TV/DVD above, is situated for viewing from anywhere in the kitchen or living area. The master king bedroom suite with custom bathroom and private balcony is on the second floor, as well as the half bathroom.

The third floor has the penthouse suite with a queen size bed and full custom bathroom. From your private balcony, you can see down the beach for miles, enjoy a fabulous sunrise or sunset, or watch the sailboats transiting the intracoastal waterway.

Free WiFi extends to all the decks and balconies. Enjoy your music, entertainment, and games where ever you would like, in or outside of our beachhouse!

We provide free linens for your stay! The reason this was important to us was when we were building our house, we had to rent our linens and towels while staying at another property. When I entered that property, there was a black trash bag that contained my threadbare white linens for the week's stay. One towel, one washcloth, and two flat-sheets for the bed I had to make myself - and I paid $30 for this service. It was a great learning experience! Thus, I decided never would any of my guests ever experience the linen ordeal upon their arrival. Our linens are luxurious, our beds are made, and our goal is for you to truly enjoy your vacation!

This is a fully equipped luxury property. Come stay with us and we know you shall come back again and again.

We had a lovely stay. There was some confusion about the code to get in but we are resourceful and someone had left one of the sliding doors open so we were able to get in. I wish that we had known ahead of time that the dumb waiter was down but once again we are resourceful. The house is lovely and the weather was great. The kitchen was well stocked and we really enjoyed the grill. It was nice to have the beds made and not packing and hauling linens was a treat and much appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful beach week

Spectacular property!

  • 5 of 5

Silver Sisters is a group of sorority sisters who are all over 65 and enjoy a yearly reunion.We agreed to gather on Topsail Island this year. This house was outstanding. We rented both Sunrise and Sunset, giving us 12 bedrooms and almost as many baths.The decor was lovely, the decks perfect for gathering, the kitchens well provisioned,and the beachfront location perfect! We especially appreciated the dumb waiters to transport luggage and groceries upstairs. The McGraths were very responsive to our questions and quickly helped us resolve a couple of minor issues

Perfect house for a large gathering.

Perfect house for large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home in North Topsail. There were 14 of us (8 adults, 6 kids) and we all fit comfortably. Location was fantastic, as it was just a short walk from the pier (which serves a great breakfast and lunch) and to the park, where we enjoyed crabbing, fishing, basketball, and Italian ice! The views from the main living area and the deck were gorgeous. We did have neighbors in the adjacent unit, but we wouldn’t have even known had it not been for their vehicles out front. Paulette was great to work with. From the moment we booked to when we checked in, she was very helpful and responsive. It is evident that Paulette wants all her guests to have nothing but a 5 star experience, and we certainly weren’t let down! Thanks for sharing your house with us and allowing such wonderful family memories to be made over this spring break 2018!

What's not to love about a week on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

In early April, the water is still a bit too cool for the fish to bite well and the grandsons to play for extended periods in the surf, but the middle of the day was very pleasant. The beauty is constant, and sitting on the deck reading a beach book never fails to relax.

The house is lovely and spacious. There is room for everyone to sleep comfortably and even have a bit of bathroom privacy. Also, the kitchen was conveniently organized so that cooking for a crowd was a breeze, and Mr. and Mrs. McGrath provided a wealth of information about the area, so we were able to enjoy some of the local attractions and activities.

Go and enjoy!

Car: recommended

The ocean is in your backyard and less than a 5 minute drive from the house is a Four Star Golf Course. You can enjoy deep sea fishing on one of the local charter boats or fish off the longest pier on the east coast. Drive to Wilmington and tour several of the beautiful plantation homes. Enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants on the river and then enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride. Shop at the mall or at the quaint shops in the area. Bring the kids to the Turtle Hospital or to the Aquarium. There is so much to do and so many places to explore.

Or, sit on the beach, dig your toes in, enjoy the breeze and views, sip a cold drink and read that book you've been wanting to read.

Other Activities: The ocean is in your back yard; a park( tennis, basketball, playground)is a 5 minute walk; & the golf course & fishing pier are a 5 min drive.
