About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Lovely 3 story, 3000 sq. ft. home which overlooks the beautiful Topsail Sound-intracoastal waterway. Two of the four bedrooms are master suites and all are waterfront with great views.

Enjoy your morning coffee from 1 of the 3 decks, listen to the birds and watch the boats traveling the waterway. In the evening, have dinner on the top deck and watch the amazing sunsets.

When you are ready to swim, walk on the beach, work on your shell collection or just lay in the sun, 2 minute walk across the street to private boardwalk over the dunes. If you want to try your skills at paddle boarding, behind the house is a perfect spot.

'Sunset' is located about 1 mile from downtown Surf City, with lots of shopping and restaurants.

We have been coming to Topsail Island for many years, this was the 1st time we'd stayed sound front and will likely not be the last. Quiet, serene water views, wildlife, sunsets to die for and great water access from the dock provided us with lots of activities, fishing, kayaking nearly every day and boating the intercoastal waterway. When the tide was high our labs delighted in diving off the dock for their daily swim. The reverse plan of the house was lovely gave us expansive views from inside at every level. We made good use of the sauna, relaxing & soothing aches & pains. The house was very well appointed, we wanted for nothing and enjoyed large family dinners around the table. Lots of water toys, chairs, umbrellas & carts for beach travel were well appreciated. I would say however, we never made that beach walk in 2 minutes, still it is a relatively short 2 block hike away. With this season's severe weather threats we were so grateful to Lynn for offering us different week when hurricane "Irma" caused so much concern about heading down the coast with our family. As it turned out "Maria" was there & caused a little difficulty the 1st couple of days of our rescheduled week, still the wind and rough seas did not "dampen" our spirits or our enjoyment of this special place! Thanks to the Flores for sharing this gem!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset! We found the home clean and very comfortable. The views are spectacular! We were able to spend most of our time outside on one of the two decks or down on the dock. Although we didn't catch many fish it was great fun to just walk out there any time and fish or throw out the cast net. The beach was a short walk away and there were plenty of chairs, umbrellas and beach carts. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with anything you might need. We look forward to returning to Sunset!

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Despite the daily rain, our stay at Sunset was perfect! The house was beautifully decorated with the best panoramic view of the bay. When we couldn't go outside because of the rain, we could watch the storms from the living room. When the rain stopped there would be a full rainbow. In the evening on the bay after the rain, the bullfrogs would sing in unison a beautiful song! Our family spent the day fishing off the dock, kayaking in the bay, biking, and swimming in the ocean. My favorite past time at Topsail is searching for sharks teeth. In addition to Sunset being a wonderful vacation house, Lynn was a very attentive host. The beach cart was broken before we arrived, so Lynn ordered a new one and had it delivered. This made the short trip to the beach even easier. Thank you Lynn for sharing your home with our family allowing us to make lasting memories.

Views were beautifull.

  • 4 of 5

The house was awesome loved eating at the kitchen table overlooking the sound at night. The walk to the beach was just 5 minutes. It was a little bad timing as they were putting a new roof on next door so It was a little uncomfortable sitting outside and having 4 guys looking at you. Some of the extra equipment that comes with the house was a little disappointing none of the fishing rods work which was a bummer especially since I didnt bring my own. The cart for the beach and the umbrella were also broke. I blame that on guests who dont take care of the equipment. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need.

Great place! Would definitely go back

  • 5 of 5

The family and I had a great week. The owners had everything one would need. The boys fished, crabbed, and kayaked every day in the inlet. The sunsets off the decks are incredible. The pictures on the website are exactly what you get. Definitely feels more like a home than a rental.
