About Dena Baysden

My wife, Wanda, and I have always enjoyed vacationing with our dogs in tow. We have traveled the greater part of the 50 states, so imagine our surprise when we rented a cozy oceanfront cottage only 1 hour from our house and fell in love with this oceanic oasis! Since obtaining the property, we have made several upgrades, all while maintaining the historic character of the property. My niece, Dena, will handle your reservation needs. We welcome you to experience the beauty, peace, laughter, and love that this house has harbored for us over the years.

Dena Baysden purchased this cottage in 2006

The perfect beach house for our family

  • 5 of 5

2 parents, 2 toddlers, 2 grandparents, 1 yellow lab...NONE of us wanted to lug stuff to the beach and with Next to Heaven we didn't have to. We were right on the beach with waves lapping at the steps and even under the house during high tides. We saw the turtle patrol help a newly hatched turtle safely leave its roped off nest one evening, we got to watch surfers from our balcony, shrimpers on the horizon, occasional helicopters patrolling overhead. This house has everything you need - all the charm of a cozy beach house and the owners have welcoming touches everywhere. We were blessed with great weather in between Hurricanes Irma and Marie. The washer/dryer kept the sand out of our suits. Thank you for making your beach house available - we had an awesome time! Kudos to Dena.

Even with nasty weather.........GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Location was great. Had two good days, Hurricane Irma cut down the beach time. We had a lot of other things that we could do and good seafood to eat. Best food was cooked by us. Topsail Steamer offers a combination of seafood that is packed into a steamer pot that you take home and steam yourself on the stove top. Place was as advertised and we would like to return in the future.

Right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed being on the beach every day. No lugging our stuff back and forth. You can see sunrise every day from the front deck and we walked the beach every morning and night.

Outside shower was great and eat up bar convenient for kids.
