About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath 2ND Row Townhome With Private Beach Access

Welcome to Serenity Now!! This cute and comfortable 2nd row townhouse is new to the rental market! All furniture is BRAND NEW in 2013, along with new top-quality mattresses and linens (included free of charge!). We have taken great time and effort to be sure that our home is clean, comfortable and relaxing for our upcoming guests.

Our privately-owned unit is located directly on the ICW, and just across the street from the beach with private beach access. Choose any of the 3 back decks to watch some of the most amazing sunset views over the ICW that you will ever see! Plus, just 30 yards from your front door is your private beach access to some of the most beautiful, uncrowded stretches of North Topsail Beach you can find. No big condo complexes here - with just 28 units in our Shipwatch complex (most of them owner-occupied and non-rentals), you'll find big, wide-open beaches and friendly neighbors. The Shipwatch complex itself just finished a complete exterior renovation project, including new balconies, roofing and siding.

IF you want to stay connected, there is high-speed cable modem with secured wireless internet access. If you DON'T want to stay connected, we don't blame you! Spend your time instead relaxing on the beach, snuggle with a good book on one of the beautiful balconies, or take your kids fishing off of the private gazebo on the ICW! We have fishing poles and crab pots available for our guests - both kids and adults will have a blast!

The unit itself is a 3-story 3BR/2.5BA townhome, with private parking directly in front of the unit and a total of 5 decks to enjoy beautiful views from both the front and back of the unit! On the downstairs level there are two bedrooms and a full bath. The front bedroom has 2 TWIN BEDS and views of the ocean, while the back bedroom on this level has a beautiful QUEEN-SIZE BED with private balcony and amazing views of the ICW! The second level is the main living area with a large, comfortable living area, half-bath, and a separate dining area all open to a very well-stocked kitchen (we love to cook and hope our guests will as well!). In the kitchen you will find new solid surface countertops, stainless steel appliances as well as a beautiful travertine backsplash. There are private decks off both the kitchen (ocean view) and living area (ICW view) so that you can enjoy beautiful views from anywhere in the house! The master suite is on the third level with its own private full bath and QUEEN-SIZE BED. A private balcony off the master suite overlooks the beautiful ICW. Below we have just installed brand new decking underneath the entire house, along with an awesome outdoor shower - complete with hot AND cold water for nice warm showers (a must in the off-season)!! Again, everything in our home has been updated and newly renovated and is now ready for our guests - we hope you'll be one of them!

A lovely townhome with perfect views of the ocean and waterfront. Our second year

staying there and love it. It is very well decorated and neat and clean. The owner is so

great to work with and is always quick to answer your emails and phone calls. I would

highly recommend it for a relaxing vacation. Great outdoor furniture you can see over

the decks and enjoy the sunsets.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Serenity Now lived up to the prior reviews and was a perfect getaway. The entire unit was very clean, and the kitchen was very well stocked. This unit had a great ocean view and a spectacular intracoastal waterway view. The furniture on all the decks was very nice, as was the indoor furniture. At one point, we had four people using the wifi at one time with no problem. The beach access was very close, but we really enjoyed fishing off the back private dock. Grocery stores were close by and we did enjoy a couple trips to Wilmington, less than an hour away. The outdoor shower and new decking under the unit was very nice. Parking was no problem. There are many stairs.

Great Townhouse. Perfect for 3 adults and 3 kids.

Serenity Now is a great townhouse at the beach. Very short walk to the beach. House was clean. Jen was great to work with. She always replied to emails and phone calls quickly, but before and during the trip. Well equipped kitchen and outdoor grill. All of the TVs in the main room and the bedrooms were nice. The wi-fi worked well. We rented a kayak and really enjoying taking it out on the inter-coastal waterway and the ocean. The new decking under the house was excellent with the outdoor shower and space for storing the kayak and beach equipment.

The Townhouse was in pristine condition. The ShipWatch community had its own private beach access which was literally right across the street, and the views were perfect as well. It was just like being oceanfront, but at a 2nd row price. Could not have asked for a better experience. There are a lot of steps so I do not recommend this if you have a hard time going up stairs a lot.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week at Serenity Now. The location of the property was terrific especially if you have small kids and a lot of things to carry to the beach. Beach access is literally right across the street and takes less then a minute to go from the front door to setting up your beach chairs. The property features several wonderful decks that provide beautiful views especially at sunset. We all enjoyed eating our breakfast and lunch on the back deck. The furniture is very comfortable and the couch especially has plenty of room for everyone. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Jen on the beach and she requested permission from us to fix a few things she noticed were missing or broken after the last renters left. Neither issue was big (missing toilet paper roll holder and a missing spring on the outdoor shower door) but she took care of them quickly and without us having to contact her about them. This property was a wonderful rental and we would recommend to anyone considering booking it.
