3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8, Amazing Log Cabin at the Beach!
After years of family trips to Topsail Island and creating wonderful memories, we now have our very own beach house – “AT LAST”!!! It is located on the south end of beautiful Topsail Island and is a two-minute walk to the beach. Appropriately named, “At Last” is truly the perfect beach get away with three roomy bedrooms, two baths, open floor plan, enclosed outside shower and even an outside sink to clean your catch of the day. It is so unique – definitely a beach house like no other. Although siding now covers the logs on the exterior, the house was originally built as a log cabin. Inside, you can still see the hand crafted tongue and grove walls in the living area and master bedroom. In the downstairs bedrooms, the tongue and grove, beamed ceilings give each room such a cozy, warm feeling.
The open living area, with grand vaulted ceiling, includes a kitchen that’s well-stocked with small appliances, utensils, pots, pans, plenty of dinnerware and silverware. The dining area has a table for six and a bar that seats four people. In the unlikely event of rain at the beach, you can enjoy the hundreds of channels on the living room 51” flat-panel HDTV, watch a provided movie on the DVD/Blu-ray player, read a book, play a game or put together a puzzle.
There's a long, covered front porch with rocking chairs and large screened back porch that's surrounded by your own maritime forest of Live Oaks. The private balcony off the large upstairs master bedroom (with king-size bed) is a wonderful place to enjoy the ocean view while having your morning coffee. The master bath, with new tile shower and glass doors, was recently renovated with new flooring, ceiling, sink, fixtures and nautical décor. On the main level, “At Last” has two additional roomy bedrooms with nice flat panel HDTVs and DVD players and another full bath (with new paint, fixtures, mirror and decor.) In the downstairs utility room, you'll find a full-size washer, dryer and extra refrigerator as well as storage for the provided beach chairs, boogie boards, sand buckets, and beach toys. Our home comfortably accommodates a maximum of eight guests with plenty of parking space.
Topsail Island is a beautiful, safe, unspoiled, barrier island with 26 miles of wonderful sandy beaches. “At Last” is located in the family-oriented Topsail Beach community on a friendly, quiet street that’s great for biking, jogging, or strolling down by the water. From our house, it’s just a few steps to the beach where you can relax, soak up the sun, and watch the waves lap onto the wide, sandy shore. Walking down the street, in the other direction, it dead ends into the picturesque waterway where sunsets are magnificent!
We looked a long time to find just the right beach place and know this is it!! Come on down, settle into our cozy home, stroll on the beach, cast a line, enjoy the area and we’re sure you’ll agree that you, too, have found your favorite beach vacation spot – At Last!!!

I grew up going to my grandmother's cottage on Topsail Island and loved every minute spent there. That beachfront cottage, however, was taken in Hurricane Fran (1996) and could not be rebuilt. For a very long time, I dreamed of having a house on Topsail Island. I met my significant other, Greg, a few years ago and found that he loved the beach as well. After talking for years, we began planning for a beach house and, of course, it had to be on Topsail!
Owner purchased this House in 2013
Why Owner chose Topsail Beach
We started looking for a beach place but soon realized it would not be an easy, nor quick, task. For so long, we looked at so many places but it had to be the right location, the right house, and the right "feel". In June, 2013, after two years of searching, we finally found it - "At Last" - thus the name!! It was perfect - right location, right size, unique, and that oh so special "feel"!! We immediately fell in love and love it more every time we go!
What makes this House unique
The uniqueness of a "log cabin" at the beach first got our attention and the beautiful setting among the Live Oaks was icing on the cake! We felt, when we first walked in, that we were "home". And now for the "rest of the story": A year after buying a beach house together and after eight years of being together as a couple, Susan and Greg were married - on the beach, at Topsail. Can you guess what song was playing as the bride walked down the beach? Yes, it was "At Last" of course!!!

At Last is a Treasure
Our 2nd time staying here. Great space and I love the deck and screened porch. So convenient and cozy! The owners are fantastic and great communicators.
We will be back!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay - the porches are one of our favorite things too. Thanks for your review. We loved having you and look forward to your return!
Clean convenient..they thought of everything
It was so clean and organized. It had everything our family enjoyed. So close to the beach and bay. Great house for families
Great Early Fall Stay
We stayed in Topsail Beach at “At Last” for an early fall fishing trip and it was the perfect fit for our trip! The owners are absolutely amazing and do everything they can to make your trip pleasant. The house is a very short walk from public beach access and only a couple mile drive to several shops and restaurants. The house itself makes you feel like you are in a log cabin which was a very cool feeling in a home only a 100 yards from the beach. The rooms are very nice, especially the master bedroom upstairs with a newly updated bathroom. Without a doubt the best part about this home is the front and back deck. Both are fantastically appointed and allow for a great way to wake up and enjoy a cup of coffee. I highly recommended this house to anyone looking for Topsail vacation!
Clean and homey stay
Recently my husband, young daughter, and I traveled with some friends and their young son to stay at At Last. We had a great! It was a bit small, but that made it feel homey. If you have a large group, you all might not fit in the living room at one time. But the large front and back porches definitely make up for that! It was a quick walk to the beach, and we had a great time.
Comfy and cozy, very close to the beach
Very comfy place. Book this place if you like to spend time at the beach. Probably about 50-75 yards to the beach entrance way. House has everything you need for family dinners, etc. Would visit again.
This was our first trip to Topsail. We absolutely loved it. It is a great beach for family. The house was wonderful, we had 5 people and everyone had their own space. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Very close proximity to the beach. I definitely recommend this house! Jean was exceptional to work with!
Deep Sea Fishing charters, outside shower and fish cleaning station under house; kayak and jet ski rentals, Tour the Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center (only turtle hospital in the state); rent bikes and explore the island.
