About the property

OCEANFRONT 6BR+2 Queen Alcoves 2 Kitchens+4Full BA+2Half BA, Rooftop Deck

Up On The Roof' is an oceanfront full duplex offering plenty of room for vacationing with extended family and friends. The two adjoining units provide the perfect opportunity to be together, but separate when needed. Put the early birds on one side and the night owls on the other. Or your family on one side and the in-laws on the other - you decide what works best for you! You'll all enjoy the options you have in this special property.

Up On The Roof has new interior furnishings & patio furniture and well-equipped kitchens for preparing gourmet feasts from the land or sea.

The units have identical floorplans (just reversed) with the following features:

Enter either unit from the carport on the ground level. Here you will find 'The Alcove' with a queen size bed and TV with Netflix.

Up one flight of stairs is the open great room which includes the well-equipped kitchen with granite countertops and island with 3 barstools, dining room with table for 8, powder room and the living room with a 60" Smart TV and plenty of comfortable seating. The adjoining doors between the two units are just off the kitchen. The oceanfront door in the living room opens to the first of 3 oceanfront decks - this level has outdoor dining and, most importantly, the walkway to the beach!

Up the next flight of stairs are the three bedrooms. The oceanfront master bedroom has a King bed, TV and private bathroom with shower. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and TV and the Bunk Room has 2 sets of bunk beds and a TV for the kids. These bedrooms share the hall bathroom with tub/shower. The second oceanfront covered deck is accessed from the hallway on this level and has steps up to the rooftop deck for sunbathing and gorgeous 360 degree views of the ocean and intracoastal waterway.

In the carport of each unit, on the ground level, is an enclosed outdoor shower and a grill for grilling fresh catch. There is also a hose on the main level deck to rinse off the sand before heading in from the beach.

Wonderful Topsail Island Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love "Up On The Roof"! This is the second time our family has visited this property. The two units have doors that open through the kitchens, so it makes the property perfect for a large family. The separate kitchens and living areas are ideal for different eating times and TV viewing options. The bench at the end of the walkway overlooking the ocean is perfect for enjoying your morning cup of coffee, or your evening glass of wine! Although the dunes are now starting to invade the walkway. The owner Amy, was very accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend visiting this property.

Perfect spot to kick off summer

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and Amy made everything super easy for check in / departure. Loved the location and beach front access. The house had plenty of room for a group to spread out and have the space they need. We're already looking forward to next year!

Great Location with Disappointments Related to House and Owners

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the house with 23 family members staying in both sides of the duplex, however there were many problems with the house. The location and beach could not be better. This was fantastic. However, the week was riddled with daily communication with the owners of the property, as the a/c was not working properly in one side and the temperature was borderline manageable at night. We worked with hvac people who came and we were helpful and supportive to the owners. The problem was not fixed well and temp increased during our stay. Additionally, the sleeper sofa in that same unit (Stars) was broken and not useable, which was problematic for the number of people we had. We needed this sleeping option because the Alcove bedroom was too hot for the adults who were staying there. This was not fixed or replaced and impacted our stay. Anyone staying here needs to fully understand what "Alcove" bedroom is not a proper bedroom with a door. It is essentially the entryway of the unit n the ground level and the owners have put a bed in there. So, it is open, not much privacy. This is not clearly stated on the listing, so our family would recommend that you not plan on anyone staying down there, except for a teenager perhaps. It is absolutely not acceptable as a bedroom for adults. The bathroom that "Alcove" bedroom guests must use is the powder room upstairs next to the kitchen on the main floor. There were some other issues with maintenance/upkeep in the house but these were many and fairly minor in our view. The last thing that is important to add is that the owners appeared to be helpful and in contact with us - until we asked for a discount for Stars unit for the week and we wanted to resolve this. Amy told us she would discuss this with Greg, and would get back to us, but never did. From this point on, they would not respond to our communications, which was very disappointing considering how much communication (friendly we thought) during the week we had and all the time we spent w the issues. It was clear to us that they were really not committed to resolving the issues to completion. We, ourselves, are landlords and find this very hard to understand, and unacceptable. We will not stay in this property again for this reason and the only reason we give 4 stars is for location and beach. Disappointing way to end a stay.

Owner's Response: As she stated, this guest and her large family had a wonderful week at Up On The Roof. She reported two issues during her visit: 1) She reported the sofa bed was broken two days after her arrival (we can only assume the damage occurred during her visit). We had two roll away beds delivered the same day - July 4th, no less. 2) She reported the AC on one floor of one side of the duplex was not reaching the set temp. HVAC repairman arrived the next morning, ordered and replaced a part. She requested a refund at the time of check out and, when denied, she posted this review. We handled her issues promptly and this is the first complaint we have had at Up On The Roof. Please see all our other positive reviews on this property and our other properties listed on VRBO.

Perfect for a large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our large family-10 grandchildren ages 3-21, and 8 adults. Very well equipped, fantastic location, and worked so well for all of us to have a wonderful week celebrating my parents' 50th anniversary.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Love the easy and close access to the beach. The layout of the house and dual kitchens worked perfectly for our large family gathering as well. Netflix was a real hit for all kids (ranging from 6 to 19)! House was clean and had all the necessary items for a truly enjoyable week away. Location was central to many day excursions for those that wanted to explore the area.

About Amy Spraker

We've been coming to Topsail for years. We got engaged and married in North Topsail Beach and are so excited to have our vacation home there. We hope you will fall in love with Topsail just like we did and return year after year!

Amy Spraker purchased this house in 2013

Why Amy Spraker chose North Topsail Beach

We are so excited to add Up On The Roof to our Topsail Island rentals! We admired it for many years before the opportunity to purchase it became available.

What makes this house unique

The rooftop deck has breathtaking views of the ocean and intracoastal waterway! We also love the fact that Up On The Roof gives you two houses in one, allowing you to vacation with a crowd, but still enjoy some privacy when needed.

Just a few steps down the private walkway and you're on the beach! Enjoy beautiful views of the ocean from the 3 oceanfront decks, including the rooftop deck with views of the ocean and intracoastal waterway. There is not a public beach access within a mile of Up On The Roof, so this section of North Topsail Beach is not crowded even in peak season. You'll enjoy swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, shell-seeking, sand castle building and just basking in the sun. Start your day with a beautiful sunrise over the ocean and your evening with a gorgeous sunset over the intracoastal waterway.
