About the property

2 Bedroom Oceanfront Private Condo 20 ft relaxing deck to watch the Ocean waves

Upgraded 2017! Featuring fresh paint, new art, new couch, 32 inch flat-screen TV in the living room, new kitchen flooring and back-splash. We hope you like it as much as we do!

***Please note that there has been significant beach erosion over the past year at North Topsail Beach. There is currently minimal accessible to the beach in front of our unit. At times, this has created a unique unobstructed view from our unit. From the living room couch and master bed, you can only see the ocean. The beach is still accessible via a short walk down through the complex. Our prices reflect the condition of the beach. ***

The Top is a great value beach vacation for couples or families. Situated on the top floor of the northern most unit of Topsail Reef, The Top features expansive views of the ocean and boat lane of New River Inlet. From the 20 foot deck you can watch dolphins, boaters, and crash of ocean waves. This third floor condo has ocean views from the master bedroom and living room. Enjoy your morning coffee in bed, looking out at the ocean and evening drinks on our private balcony.

The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full size mattress on the bottom and single on top. From the window near the bunk bed, you can see the intercoastal waterway in the distance. The closet in the second bedroom has a good selection of beach gear. We have 2 beach chairs, several boogie boards, a skim board, tubes, and equipment for building the perfect sand castle.

The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and baking. An outdoor grill area with a pergola is also available to grill your local catch or a nice juicy burger. Restaurants are available in the Topsail/Sneads Ferry/Surf City area located on or near the island. Historic Wilmington features dining on the River Walk and Wrightsville Beach provides beach and intracoastal dining.

In case of rain, we have you covered: 50 plus free DVD movie library, high speed wireless internet, Direct TV with over 60 channels (10 of which are sports channels), and several family games including playing cards, poker chips, puzzles and board games.

The Top is close to several golf courses and fishing, including the pier just down the road. The Top is only 30 miles from historic Wilmington, NC. Visit The Wilmington Railroad Museum, Cape Fear Museum, Fort Fisher, the Cotton Exchange, and the Battleship North Carolina. Wilmington features multiple historic districts. Arts and theater are available with more than 400 projects filmed in the area.

Parks, gardens, and other nature-based tourism include Airlie Gardens, Arboretum at New Hanover, multiple mansions and parks, as well as other features. The Azalea Festival is held every spring.

Coastal shopping is available on and off the island. Mayfaire Town Center is located off Route 17 in Wilmington and features restaurants, a movie theater, with over 65 shops.

Please note In an effort to keep prices low, linens are not provided. We do supply pillows and bedspreads in the bedrooms, but do not supply sheets or personal towels. This is due to a low demand of linen rentals by a local company in the past which cost an additional $65. 90% of visitors requested they bring their own to save money, and we can appreciate that!

You won’t regret staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing, the owners are so easy to work with, and the views are unreal! My boyfriend and I stayed here after he returned from a deployment, and Cynthia/Jesse were so understanding and accommodating when we couldn’t give them any set-in-stone dates for a while. This condo has a kitchen with anything you’ll need, and a movie collection/games to keep you entertained for days. Not to mention the beach gear! The best part about this condo was hands down the balcony doors in the bedroom! So amazing to open those doors and hear the waves from the comfort of a bed. We will definitely be returning for all of our future trips, and would recommend this place to anyone!

Great Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing getaway for the thanksgiving holiday, and to celebrate our son’s 4th birthday! Although the weather didn’t cooperate quite like we wanted, we enjoyed getting out to do some sea shell hunting and fishing! The condo was nice, very simple (like you’d want at a beach, and with 2 kids) and clean. We really appreciated the beach accessories, and utilized the chairs and toys through the week! Thanks so much for the nice getaway!

beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing time at the property. The place itself was spotless and well stocked for beach supplies and kitchen items but the views from the porch each morning were breathtaking. It really does look like the picture. We are senior citizen beach walkers and our only "complaint" was the high tides that shrunk the beach but that does due to recent hurricanes. Definitely a place you would want to stay and one we will probably revisit some day.

Cute and quaint getaway spot for intimate vacations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for our honeymoon / one year wedding anniversary (we paid for our wedding on our own without help from family so we did not have enough money at that time to go on a honeymoon right away) and we absolutely fell in love with "The Top"!! The condo was somewhat on the smaller side BUT it was larger than we expected. Although it was just the two of us on this vacation we could have easily fit two or three more friends with us. The condo was also much cleaner than any other vacation rental I have stayed at which is amazing for clean freaks like myself! The patio of the condo is an ocean front view and it is gorgeous to watch the sunrise in the mornings. It takes about one minute to walk to the private beach which is amazing too! Overall I would rate "The Top" five out of five stars and I would definitely come back! One more thing, I cannot believe what a steal of a deal we got on this condo too - The motels down the street in Surf City we're charging around the same price and some were charging even more for a moldy little motel room! The Top is definitely worth it in sooo many ways it is unreal!! Love, love, love it !!!

Just what we were looking for, quiet beauty.

  • 5 of 5

After a lifetime of beach trips that were all hustle and bustle, crowded, and not always satisfying, we looked for something else. We found it at The Top. Yes, it's an older property, and yes, that's a lot of steps, but for a small family who doesn't need a huge beach house, we found this property nearly perfect. We had beautiful sunrise views every morning, lots of shells and treasures collected on our multiple daily walks, and we loved the tidal pools to splash or relax in just a short walk up the beach. At times, it seemed we had our own private beach. As for the condo, it was updated, clean, comfortable, and had all the cooking supplies you would need, and a George Foreman grill that we used almost daily. We couldn't have been more pleased. The master bed could use a foam topper, but that was the only negative.

Our stay was comfortable and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was 3rd floor which was fine. Everything noted as provided was provided.The bees swarming around the deck made sitting out there a challenge and the sliders were in need of attention. AC worked!!
