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!

Very clean and welcoming with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Sunday 11/19 to spend Thanksgiving with our Marine Son. We had a fabulous time! The house is VERY comfortable, VERY clean and offers spectacular views!

We didn't miss a single sunrise or sunset. Enjoyed walking on the beach and highly recommend morning coffee on one of the beautiful decks :) We would return in a heartbeat!

A delightful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay a Jenn’s beautiful home was perfect. Our weather was pretty nice for November. A few days of rain in the middle but the place was so relaxing we enjoyed those days for what they were - a vacation. My only complaint was that the days went too fast. We have been coming to North Topsail Beach for over 30 years. By far some of the best beaches you will find anywhere. Even in November my husband went swimming every day. He swears the they are the best body surfing waves you will ever find anywhere. I spent a lot of my time in a beach chair reading or taking long walks. I found the biggest shark tooth I had ever found on this trip.

The basics..Jenn was a delight to deal with. She was quick to respond to all of my questions. The instructions for getting to and into the home were clear and easy to follow. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets were crisp and clean. The entire home was well kept and clean and everything felt like it was designed with love. I even asked Jenn who was her decorator as it was so close to what I would have picked myself. Note - she did herself a labor of love. The kitchen was well stocked and everything worked well. The internet/WiFi signal always appeared to be strong. The home has an incredible amount of natural light. All in all the place was comfortable and felt like Home!

I hope we can go back to Serenity Now soon but next time for longer than a week.

This Townhouse was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was exactly as it was presented in the brochure. It was immaculate and everything was in excellent working condition. The owner was available by phone, text or email to answer any questions. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. Easy access to the beach and a wonderful view of the sound from the back deck. Be sure and try these restaurants - Sweet & Savory and DaddyMacks.

Beautiful Views-Beach Townhouse with many upgrades

  • 5 of 5

Check this townhouse out if you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation. The owners have thought of most every detail to make sure renters have everything they need for a week of relaxation and beach living. There are several flights of stairs, but the townhome has lots of space and plenty of room for families or friends to spread out. The beds are extra comfortable and the sofa sectional is extra large and easy to take a nap on after a long day on the beach. One of the best features was the heated outdoor shower, so relaxing!! The townhome has many upgrades and the kitchen is well stocked to cook about anything you would desire. There are several small kitchen appliances also. There is a gas grill underneath and several decks and patios on every level. Breathtaking sunset views from the back porch and beach sunrise views from the front deck. We rented kayaks and they have a nice storage spot for all your waterway and beach gear underneath. Plenty of off street parking and the beach has a private entrance. The owner has made this rental home feel like your home away from home. The linens were premium quality and so comfortable. We will most certainly book this house again!! The owner is very responsive and answers any questions you might have before you arrive.

Beautiful home...great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Serenity Now was a great spot for our family vacation. The townhome was neat, clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The kitchen was very well equipped, and all of the furniture was very comfortable. We loved the proximity to the beach and the amazing views of both the ocean and ICW. A bonus was the enclosed, outdoor shower...keeps the sandy mess outside! The owner was very prompt and very helpful along the way. You really can't go wrong with this rental!
