Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8 - 10)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COTTAGE IS BLOCKED DECEMBER 2017 - FEBRUARY 2018 FOR MAINTENANCE.

Some people have called this 'your grandma's cottage'. It is the classic H-plan with four bedrooms (2 oceanfront) and 2 full baths all on one level. The ocean side deck is a screened in porch with four tall adirondack chairs and a table, as well as a lower gliding rocker with gliding ottoman and two rocking chairs. There is a lower deck that has an outside shower for rinsing off after your beach time or for enjoying the sunshine. The two oceanfront rooms have king beds and the two back bedrooms each have two full beds. Three of the four bedrooms have small flat-screen tvs with high definition antennas (no cable tv in the bedrooms). Depending on how comfortable your travelers are at doubling up in the full beds, the home would sleep 8 -12 (2 each in the kings and 1 -2 each in the fulls) although I limit occupancy to 10. Be advised that there is no sleeper sofa and no rollaway or trundle in the home, nor do I stock cribs or playpens for babies.

The living room has comfy slipcovered furniture and there is a flat screen TV as well, with HD cable and a blu ray player. We have strong WiFi for all of your internet needs and there is an iPod docking mini stereo if you'd like to play music (fits older iPhones, for iPhone 5 and newer bring your dongle!). The kitchen is equipped with the normal conveniences in addition to a blender, a regular coffee maker, a Keurig (K-cups!), a toaster and a microwave. On the ground floor of the home is a laundry room that also has a full hot and cold water enclosed shower, a third toilet and a utility sink. I have this listed as a third bathroom on VRBO but it's really more of a last resort bathroom since it's on the ground floor.

Please note that between Memorial Day and Labor Day this is a 7 day, Saturday-to-Saturday only rental. Check in is typically 5pm Saturday with check out the following Saturday morning at 10 am. In March, April, May, September and October I may consider renting for periods less than or more than a week based on availability, or allowing early check in or late check out. Stays of a week or more incur no extra cleaning fees however stays of shorter than five days will incur a $100 cleaning fee.

In addition to providing a competitive price I also try to stock some things that most rentals don't - namely toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap, trash bags, dishwashing gel, and laundry detergent. I do my best to keep stock of these on hand all year but in the deep summer months availability may be limited or completely depleted so I cannot promise the house will be fully stocked with the previously mentioned items. But what's there you can use. The laundry room is also stocked with a large assortment of kids beach toys (buckets, shovels, sandcastle molds, etc) for your little ones to use.

I do not provide linens or towels, or any beach items like chairs or umbrellas. Linens may be rented from any one of several local companies.

I am striving to keep the home pet friendly, and I am allowing one dog (under 50 pounds) to visit with you for a non refundable fee of $100. If you have a larger dog, or more than one please inquire.

I have a local cleaning crew and handyman on the island, so you don't need to worry about anything if something comes up regarding a repair or cleaning issue. My response time, and theirs, if faster than any realty agency on the island.

There are three grocery stores within a 15 minute drive of the home (IGA on the island in Surf City, Food Lion on the mainland and Harris Teeter near Highway 17).

I sincerely hope you enjoy your stay at our home - every time I leave I want to turn around and go right back!

Cute House Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Tip Sea Turtle for a week to celebrate my 60th birthday. We loved the screened porch. Clean house stocked with everything we needed for the week. Owner was fantastic. Would stay again. Highly recommend.

Excellent location and excellent condition of house and furnishings!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home for a beach vacation. Our three generation family with two preschoolers included found it comfortable and well-equipped.

We found the owner to be great with communication which is very helpful.

Our family is definitely planning our next vacation for Tip Sea Turtle at Topsail Beach, NC!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had great communication with the owner since Irma was the threating. The home was very clean, well furnished, even had a Kuerig coffee maker. We loved the screened porch with a great view of the beach and surf. Hopefully we can return sometime soon.

Serenity by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect - one floor living and only steps the the beach! Great screened in porch overlooking the ocean. The owner, Bryan, is very hospitable and ensures all his guests are nothing but happy.
