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.

A chest freezer provides a means to store multiple bags of ice, or any excess freezer goods.

This deck is where you will find the 6-person hot tub, as well as plenty of deck furniture.

Perfect weather and beautiful home on North Carolina Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather for the entire week for our family together at Topsail for the first time in over 20 years. The house and amenities were perfect for our needs. We vacationed at Topsail yearly when our girls were young and at home and we are pleased to find that it is still the best NC family beach. Having everyone under the same roof again on the the water was great. The house was beautifully decorated markedly well supplied by Ms Bird and kudos go to her for a job well done. We all bought food and Davis Seafood at Sneed's Ferry added with great jumbo shrimp and crab cakes. All and all, a great week. We will hope to do it again in the next year if "the good lord's willin' and the creek don't rise".

Sun filled beautiful beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, loved and cared for. Nothing beats sunrise over the ocean from the front patio and walks on the wide sandy beaches. This is our second year renting and we cannot wait to return.

Roomy and well appointed house right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family fun week here! The house is very clean and well appointed and we loved the open flow from the living room through the dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen is especially great! Also loved how the beach is just outside the door and not too crowded. The location is great too - just a short drive to grocery, many restaurants and to the amazing "Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center" in Surf City which is worth a visit. Owner Wendy was in close touch throughout our stay in case we needed anything. We look forward to coming back next year!

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
