Overview

About the property

3 Brs + Queen Alcove, 2.5 Baths, Beautiful Ocean Views, Outdoor Shower

OCEANFRONT! Beautifully furnished, immaculately maintained duplex ready for your enjoyment.

If booked or you need more room, check out sister property 'Up On The Roof' - VRBO #553663 and #512985.

Come see why our guests from our first rental season declared North Topsail Beach their 'new favorite NC beach' and Sea La Vie their 'new favorite Beach House'! Your 'best beach vacation EVER' is waiting for you at Sea La Vie! Don't miss it!

The spacious driveway offers plenty of parking - there's even room for you to park your boat. Enter from the carport on the ground level. This entry level houses 'The Alcove' with a comfortable queen bed and 32in 'smart' TV with Netflix. Especially popular with teenagers but comfortable enough for adults!

One story up is the main living area including a living room with 60in flat screen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix) and plenty of comfortable seating including a queen sleeper sofa. The dining area has a table with seating for 8 and the well-stocked kitchen has a bar with 5 barstools. There is a half bath on this floor and, most importantly, an oceanfront deck off the living room with a table for 6 and the walkway to the beach! There are also 4 incredibly comfortable teak rockers on this porch. A short walk down the walkway and you are in the sand!

The top floor has an oceanfront master suite with a very comfortable king bed, 39in flat screen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix) and private bath with shower. Doors from this bedroom lead to the top deck for the best views of the ocean by day, stars by night. This is a great spot for sunbathing on the 4 lounge chairs and stargazing at night!

The other two bedrooms are also found on this level. Bedroom 2 has another comfortable queen bed and 32in flatscreen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix). The 3rd bedroom, or 'Bunk Room', is perfect for the kids with two sets of bunk beds and a 32in flatscreen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix). There is a full bath in the hallway serving these two bedrooms with a tub/shower.

Other great features include a gas grill (located in carport) for grilling fresh local seafood or steaks. There is an outdoor hot/cold shower for rinsing off the sand on your way in from a day relaxing and playing on the beach. There are loads of games, books and recent magazines for your enjoyment as well.

'Crowded' is not part of our vocabulary on this part of North Topsail Beach. There is plenty of room for your family to spread out chairs and blankets, play corn hole, bocci ball or paddle ball, throw the football or frisbee and play your favorite beach tunes, without disturbing, or being disturbed, by others. Rest easy as the kids play in the surf, protected by a sand bar about 30-40 feet out, or in the tidal pools that may appear late in the day. Enjoy great surf fishing around the posts of a former pier north of the house or surf and boogie board the waves. All in all, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the long days of summer. And by summer, we mean May through October, at least!

Why Amy Spraker chose Topsail Island

We love our cast concrete oceanfront vacation home on North Topsail Beach. It's strong, quiet and energy efficient, and the gorgeous views of the beach don't hurt either!

Beach Front Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband, his parents, brother and our 6 month old baby stayed at Sea La Vie over Memorial Day weekend, and we are SO glad that we did! The house was the perfect size for our group, super clean, and the kitchen and living spaces were incredibly comfortable and well stocked. You can't beat the location of the house, being right on the beach was amazing. Even with a holiday weekend, we never felt over crowded on the beach. Every evening after putting the baby down I had a glass (or 2) of wine on the top deck and watched the sunset with my dog and husband, it was so peaceful and the perfect way to end the day. We plan on coming back to this property again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable, lovely time. Also, I want to add that Amy the owner was so wonderful to work with, and always available via text if I had any questions. Thank you to Amy and Sea La Vie for a wonderful weekend, we will be back!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Sea La Vie. The kitchen was very well appointed, we really had everything we needed. The beach was gorgeous and quiet, we made lots of great family memories. The beds were comfortable and the room layout was great for a family of 5 - although we could easily have had a few more people and fit comfortably. I highly recommend for a family with small kids!

Island Time was Great!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property. We loved the island, the location and amenities! It was extremely beneficial to have linens provided. Since we travelled a long distance for a week's stay, we didn't have any room to bring our own. Very, very appreciative of the linens!! The only downside was the alcove bedroom, it was a little too cold since it was on the lowest floor. I'm sure it's great during the summer, but too cold for winter stay. Fortunately, we only had 6 people and used the sleeper sofa instead. Otherwise, everything else was wonderful. We had plenty of cookware and appliances for preparing our traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Had a great time, would definitely recommend staying at this property. Owners were extremely accommodating and friendly!

Nice place for a quiet beach get-away.

  • 4 of 5

Location is very nice, right over the dunes (semi-private walkway) to the beach. Great section of beach. Across the street from an ice machine (used) and sports rental shop (didn't use). 15 minutes from "the action in Surf City", 10 minutes away from grocery store and ABC store on the mainland. Duplex setup is very nice with decks off the master BR and living room. Grill didn't work so well (common at beach). Interior a little dated but very beach comfortable. Would definitely consider coming back.

Nice Relaxing House a few steps from the beach that has everything you will need for your vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at North Topsail and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The beach is nice, quiet, and very dog friendly. Everyone we met from locals and visitors were extremely friendly. We were looking for a quiet low key vacation and that is exactly what we had. The beach access is so convenient and only a few easy steps away from the house. We spent most of our days at the beach and on the decks of the house. The top uncovered deck you can enjoy the beautiful beach views and get some sun. The week we were there it rained almost every afternoon and we were able to sit in the bottom covered deck and enjoy the rain and stay dry. The kitchen had honestly everything you could possibly need, Amy has thought of everything! Having a crockpot on vacation was a nice convenience! There are also a large variety of books to read. My one reservation going in was hearing the neighbors next door. We never heard a peep even being outside! The location is very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, etc... Amy was awesome and made sure our stay was perfect. It's nice to rent from someone who you know takes pride in their house and isn't just there for the money. We will definitely return in years to come!
