About the property

8 Bedrooms, 7 Bathroom Beachfront Home

This luxury beachfront home, which was completed in August 2013 and re-decorated in 2017, is located on Island Drive in North Topsail Beach. This home is part of the Ocean Ridge Village homeowners community. Don't wait in rental agency lines; our key-less entry check-in will ensure immediate access to the property and eliminate the need for dropping off keys at check-out.

With spacious common living areas, a very large kitchen intended for gatherings, and multiple beachfront decks, this large home caters well to multiple families by offering many places to convene and socialize. At the end of the night, families can retreat into one of 8 bedrooms, 7 with their own full bathroom and 32” flat screen tv. With solid-core bedroom doors and sound-proofing insulation in all the interior walls, families can enjoy the privacy of their own bedroom retreats.

Below is a description of each floor of the house. The 'Photos' section of this listing will show each room as it is referenced below.

First floor: This level houses the garage, has an elevator entrance and an indoor area for some good old fashioned gaming. There are 4 parking passes assigned to the property, which allows for driveway parking, with another 2 cars inside the garage. The private outdoor shower is also located on this level on the back deck.

Second Floor – This is the main bedroom level. There are 4 bedrooms on this floor as outlined below.

The laundry room also sits on this floor, as well as a hallway wet bar complete with mini-fridge and microwave, for those wanting a late night snack or early morning coffee accessible right outside of their bedroom. A chest freezer provides a means to store multiple bags of ice, or any excess freezer goods. The hallway also leads to the deck which provides beach access to everyone in the house without going through any bedrooms. This deck is where you will find the 6-person hot tub, as well as plenty of deck furniture.

Third Floor – This floor houses the great room, kitchen, and bedroom 5, which can also be used as a den with private tv viewing. The great room features multiple seating areas and a 55” flat screen tv that sits over a gas fireplace. A large wet bar provides additional refrigeration for your beverages and ensures that your drinks will always be cold. One of the sofas is a queen pullout. The kitchen centers around 2 large islands and has stainless steel appliances, including a Jenn-Air cook-top and double wall ovens. The newly added KitchenAid mixer will delight the cooks and bakers in your group, as well as fully stocked cookware and serving pieces, service for over 24 guests, and almost every imaginable kitchen gadget you may need. Additional seating is available at the counter bar, console table that opens for 4-8, and on the full deck which overlooks the beautiful beach.

Bedroom 5 – Queen sofabed, shower stall bathroom with hall and bedroom access.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jim for your nice comments! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully, we'll have a few more add-ons with the decor, and an ice maker next year ;-) Appreciate you taking the time to write this for us and have a great year! Wendy

beautiful home, beautifully decorated and very spacious

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home very much but definitely had issues with the cleanliness when we arrived. Several bathrooms had hair on the floor, etc., the top floor bedroom apparently had been ignored as it had definitely not been swept or dusted. Peanut shells were found on the floors and decks in several places. The kitchen looked ok at first glance but actually had splatters around the sinks and needed to be cleaned. The cleaning crew definitely did minimum work which was disappointing as this home is high priced. Wendy was wonderful to work with from the beginning to the end and I did bring this to her attention. Some compensation would have been appreciated but was not offered.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Yes, we were very sorry for the cleaning issue; as we professed to you when you brought it to our attention! Your's was the second complaint, and as a result we have hired a new cleaning team. As you can see by the rest of the reviews, we pride ourselves on getting it right and are again sorry. Should you choose to stay with us on your bi-annual visit to N. Topsail in 2019, we'd love to talk about how we can compensate you. Thanks! Wendy

We absolutely loved this house. Everything about it was perfect and Wendy was great to deal with. The house is decorated beautifully and it is in a great location. Wendy has thought of every detail to make this house so great. We have stayed in a number of nice beach houses over the years and this one was by far the best.

Owner's Response: Rob, Thank you so much for the great review. We are so happy that your family was able to enjoy the house! It was such fun to see all of the kids running around to check out the rooms when you arrived...I remember when mine were younger and did just the same! We don't often get the chance to meet our guests, so it was nice to be able to put a face to a name and to see who would be enjoying the house. You and your family were lovely and we hope to see you again in the future :-) Wendy

As gorgeous as the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

As close to the ocean as you can get. Gorgeous views of the ocean, up and down the beach and even the Sound from the front windows. Perfect getaway for a group of any size. The house had plenty of room for our family of 16 with more to spare. Game room in the basement was a great add for the little bit of rain we had. During our morning walks/jogs, we noticed this was the only ocean front house flying the American flag for at least 3 miles each way on the beach, nice touch.

Owner's Response: Derek, Thank you for the wonderful review and we appreciate you taking the time to write it! We hope to make some additions to the lower level to make it even more fun for everyone during the off season. As for the flag, you will be especially pleased to know that we have replaced it with "a sturdier one", and one of our current guests, who is an Army Captain, has folded the old one with military honors for display. Now that's pretty special!! Cheers, Wendy

This is the second year staying at this gorgeous home. You couldn't ask for better. Wendy made some nice decorative changes inside that are very pretty. We are family of 11 and this home fits us perfectly. If you have more, than this home will also work. There is plenty of space. There were a lot of toys for the beach that came in handy this year because the weather was great. If you want a relaxing place to go this is it. We like this home so much we are going back in 2018. I would like to thank the new owners for making sure our stay was great. I recommended this property to anyone wanting a beautiful place to stay with a relaxing atmosphere.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Jeannie. We love to hear when our guests truly enjoy their visit! We will continue to make additional upgrades to the house (especially in the lower level) in the off-season. Even since your stay, we have added a queen bed to highest oceanfront bedroom, replacing the sofa, which is now extra seating in the great room for more of your family ;-) See you in 2018! Fondly, Wendy
