2 Bedroom/1.5 Bath, Sleeps 7, Ocean Side, Ocean View, Townhouse,
Elegant ocean side, ocean view townhouse on quiet street walking distance to town and fine or casual dining or shopping. This is one of the most desirable locations on the island and the beaches are very clean and private.
It is a fantastic place that is built on an ocean front lot yet has two duplexes built in front of it (so it is not ocean front...but as close as you can get and definitely the next best thing with breath taking ocean and beach views!!). Next to us is the beach emergency access for the fire department so that is what gives us the spectacular ocean views. This area can never be built on and we sit on our deck and enjoy the surf. You can actually see the waves from the living area, and from the kitchen while eating or cooking. You can even see the sun rise over the ocean while lying in the comfortable Simmons world class beauty rest mattress! Not only is it furnished for supreme comfort it is decorated to make you feel completely at ease and relaxed from the moment you walk in. We made this our home away from home and it is decorated that way. The high top resin deck chairs make sitting on the deck like sitting on a thrown. The view is breath taking.
The property also is walking distance to town and sits on a private and secluded residential section of surf city. There are no other town houses around - just single family homes and it is a 25 mph road for only beach front homes so it is quiet and relaxing. The town house has its own private parking and beach access (no streets to cross of course because you are on an ocean front lot already). You just couldn't have a better location.
This home is newly renovated for the 2014. It is tastefully decorated and features quality fixtures and flooring. There is a well-appointed kitchen features granite counter-tops and a stainless steel sink and facet. There is comfortable furniture throughout the home.
Because we know a good vacation can only be good if you can get a good nights sleep, we feature premium bedding with Simmons World Class Beauty rest mattress. There is one King size and one Queen size bed (one in each bedroom). The second bedroom also has a set of bunks (Twin over twin) with a serta perfect sleeper and a very high end latex mattresses for premium comfort for adults as well as children (not those horrible mattress that you will find on most bunk beds). The home is equipped with custom lighting and many upgrades. Bed linens are included at no extra charge [note that the mattresses are very thick and would require deep pocket sheets if you choose to bring your own]. Departure cleaning is also included . There is a security waiver/insurance fee. There are no booking fees or any other fees.
The home has WiFi (wireless internet), 46' LCD HD TV with DVD. Bedrooms also have cable LCD Flat screen TVs. Sleeping accommodations are two queens, one twin over twin bunk, one queen bed and one twin size sleeper sofa (converted from 'chair and a half' in living area).
Topsail is a great place for families and fun. Enjoy quiet relaxation of the ocean breeze and watching the surf from the comfy high top resin deck chairs or a moonlight walk on the beach. The home has a private access to the beach. Enjoy watching the children play on the beach right from your deck or fish off the beaches right in front of the town house. You can also walk up to the Surf City Pier to see what's biting. Enjoy walking for literally miles on clean white beaches looking for prehistoric sharks teeth (Topsail is one of the few area on the east coast where they are easily found) or gather shells or 'sea beans' (small polished pebbles) for you collection. Visit the famous Sea Turtle Hospital here on the Island (see link on other page) or stop at one of our local shops and pick up some fresh homemade fudge, pies or seafood.
This home is pet friendly and we have an assortment of pet food bowels as well as a 42” collapsible crate for our 4 legged guests who prefer to have the privacy of their own space.

About Ted Waltz
We are originally from Kennett Square PA which is near Philadelphia. Debbie grew up in Williamsville NY which is a small town near Buffalo NY and moved to Kennett Square after going to college in the Philadelphia area. Ted grew up and lived most of his life in Kennett Square prior to moving to North Carolina. Teds parents both worked in the school system in Kennett (his father as a teacher and his mother as the school nurse). Ted was a Mushroom Farmer (that region is known for being one of the largest producers of fresh Mushrooms in the world). We both still have family in Kennett Square and in Buffalo but they enjoy coming to visit us in North Carolina (especially in the winter!). Our three children are grown now and one is in Vet School, one is a middle school teacher and the third is studying engineering. We currently live on a small farm outside of Raleigh.
Ted Waltz purchased this Townhome in 2013
Why Ted Waltz chose Surf City
We purchased this home in April 2013 because we owned one of the other town homes in this small block of 5 town homes. It is a fantastic location and a place to come and get away for a little sun sand and relaxation. We have been coming to Topsail for 30 years and our three children have grown up enjoying the beaches and looking for sharks teeth in the sands of Surf City. We used to travel here from the Philadelphia area because the beaches were so clean and private. We've always felt it was worth the trip and met many who traveled much further than us. Topsail is a wonderful family place but it is also a place where fishermen and surfers can share the beach and enjoy the long season of warm crystal clear water. In the fall we would stay out all night and wait on the beach with our children for the turtle nests to hatch. Vacationing in Topsail has always been worth the trip. After 30 years we finally bought our first property (the middle unit in the block of town homes) in Aug 2011. We have had our eye on this property (as an end unit) since we purchased out other one. This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm and inviting too. Since we know Topsail with charm you, we made a real effort to renovate this vacation home and its bedding and furnishing so that you will definitely want to return! From our early reviews, we think we hit the mark!
What makes this Townhome unique
We love that we can walk to the beach front restaurants and the fishing pier. We also love that we have a great view of the ocean from our deck sitting in the hi top chairs. It is really nice to have a private beach access and not to have to cross the street to get to the beach. It really feels like beach / ocean front without ocean front prices and that makes it very affordable for people to get a high quality rental in a fantastic location. …. And if you are a family that likes to travel with your pet, this is definitely the place for you!

Note: Linens Included Does Not include Bath Towels
Great location and comfortable place. View from deck is not as great as described, but beach access down the emergency access path is very close, no stairs, and great for bikes.
Owner Ted Waltz was responsive and provided bath towels when we called and said we were surprised they were not included with the linens. Apparently the Home Away website greys out what is not included but the iPhone App doesn’t show this detail, so be sure to check the website too.
We loved walking to the pier and local restaurants. We recommend Daddy Mac’s Beach Grill, Fancy Sushi, and Snow Factory (Thai style ice cream attached to Fancy Sushi - pricey but worth the experience). Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar is worth the drive (more than just oysters). We also recommend buying your own seafood from Surf City Crab Seafood Market and using the pots in the kitchen.
The Turtle Hospital is also worth the short drive (only open for tours Thursday and Saturday 1-4pm).
Wonderful place to stay!!
The property was clean and very nicely updated. The view was wonderful and loved we could be in the house and still hear the waves, quick and easy access to the beach. Would definitely stay there again!
This is a great place, well equipped, great location. We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants, gift shops etc and being only a stone's throw from the beach. We had a problem with the washing machine and it was taken care of immediately. I would recommend this listing.
Lovely home, great location and helpful owner!
This house is great for a weekend getaway! Perfectly positioned on the canal you can sit and read in the peace and quiet or you can walk a couple blocks to the beach! The house is huge and would be great for families or friends traveling together.
We really enjoyed our stay. Ted went out of his way to make everything right. He answer my calls promptly & fixed any minor issues we might have encountered. Would highly recommend staying here & plan to revisit in near future. Well appointed accommodations & great view. Superb beach!
Anniversary weekend away!
What a fantastic stay! We will be coming back as soon as possible! The condo was just perfect for us. Enjoyed the proximity to water and the closeness to everything!
