A wonderful beach week!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for family gatherings. We enjoyed a week in June 2016. The weather was fantastic and the home was warm and inviting. The kitchen was fully stocked and there was not anything we needed that we couldn't find in there. The front screened in porch was lovely. You can catch the evening breezes off the ocean unobstructed. From the front door to the sand is a 1 minute walk. We enjoyed our stay and will be booking again

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in August 2015 at the cottage. The cottage was comfortable and served us well. The beach area was awesome and the access to the beach was convenient. It was nice sitting on the screened in porch with a wonderful breeze blowing and being able to hear the ocean from the cottage. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors were friendly and shared kind words about the owners. The owner made sure we had everything we needed. We would highly recommend this cottage, it is a wonderful place for making sweet memories.

Very Nice 2nd row beach house

  • 5 of 5

We rented Pierce's Paradise in July 2015 for a family reunion held in north topsail beach. The beach house was perfect for our 10 guest. The beach access was very convenient and you can see the beach/ocean and hear the ocean waves crashing! Very relaxing atmosphere. We would highly recommend Pierce's Paradise for your relaxing getaway! The neighborhood was very quiet too! The owners were very nice and they made sure that we were comfortable during our stay. We would definitely stay with Pierce's Paradise again!

Another great vacation on Topsail!!

  • 4 of 5

We had 9 people and the house was very comfortable and clean!! Nice quiet street and very friendly neighbors. The owner was wonderful to work with. Several contacts with us before the week arrived to answer questions and even called during our vacation week to make sure everything was ok. Very short walking distance to the beach access. We love Topsail and this was another wonderful week.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful beach house while in North Carolina for a high school graduation. The description of the property was exactly what we got. It was an amazing house and perfect for our family of 6. The beach access is very convenient and you can see the ocean from the home. It is conveniently located to Jacksonville and Wilmington and many little shops to explore in Surf City.

We will definitely be using Pierce's Paradise in the future.
