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.

'The Top' is primed and ready for you to relax and enjoy the super value accommodations we take pride in providing our valued guests!

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!

As close to the beach as you can get!

  • 4 of 5

Balcony is east and south views, so full view of beach sunrise and waves crashing from the balcony, with curtains open can see ocean from bunks and master bedroom, great beds and new pillows, all beach conveniences you would need are there, fully stocked kitchen, great beach for collecting shells! It is 10 minutes to Sneads Ferry and 20 minutes from Surf City for groceries, conveniences and restaurants. The location is very quiet and family friendly. There was plenty of beach to use even with high tide. It's nice to have a rinse station right there off the beaxh. So glad we got to have a last minute vacation here!

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The Top was a wonderful place to stay! Very well equipped and nicely decorated. We had a couple of rainy days and it was so nice to still be able to watch the ocean from the living room and deck. The beach was not crowded. We felt rather spoiled. Hopefully, we can visit again soon.

Perfect place to stay for a little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a little more rundown than I had initially expected (bathroom could use some work), but the building seemed a little dated, so it made sense. This was our first visit to Topsail, and we absolutely LOVED it (despite the extremely long drive). This condo was prefect for the 4 of us, everything we needed was there, the beach was perfect (not crowded at all, which we loved with two little girls!). We would love to come back again in the future!

Great Family of 4 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but great things to say about the place and the owners. The place was tip top clean! Don't let anyone fool you this year, there was actually a beach at all tides! I know it changes from year to year, but this year we were given a treat. The kids loved the board games especially Monopoly! AHHH kill me now! and we watched a few movies as well from your collection. The view can't be beaten and they had all the amenities you would need to cook homemade meals. The owners were great, had a few mishaps (not their fault) and they were quick to respond via text or phone. Would highly recommend and will be back next year.
