About the property

Sleeps 10. 4 Bedroom 2.5 Bathrooms Oceanfront

OCEANFRONT! Beautiful all new furniture in the living room for 2015 season. Immaculately maintained duplex ready for your enjoyment.

'Stars' is the south unit of this single owner duplex. 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 granite counter tops & a bar with 3 bar stools. There is a half bath on this floor and, most importantly, an oceanfront deck off the living room with a dining table for 6 and the walkway to the beach! A short walk down the walkway and you are in the sand!

The top floor has an oceanfront master suite with a king bed, flat screen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix) and private bath with shower. A door from the hallway leads to the 2nd story covered deck and on up to the rooftop deck for the best views of the ocean by day, stars by night. This is a great spot to catch the sunset and for stargazing at night!

The other two bedrooms are also found on this level. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and flat screen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix). The 3rd bedroom, or 'Bunk Room', is perfect for the kids with two sets of bunk beds and a flat screen '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 enclosed outdoor hot/cold shower in the carport - always fun to shower outdoors! There is also a hose at the end of the beach walkway for rinsing off the sand on your way in from a day relaxing and playing on the beach. There are 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!

About Amy Spraker

We got engaged and married on North Topsail Beach 15 years ago, so this is a special island for us! We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share it with newcomers and return visitors.

Amy Spraker purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Amy Spraker chose Topsail Island

We admired 'Up On The Roof' for some time before the opportunity to purchase is became available. We loved the views from the rooftop decks that give the house it's name.

What makes this townhome unique

The rooftop deck offers panoramic views of the ocean and intracoastal waterway. Up On The Roof is well-appointed for a fun and comfortable beach vacation any time of year. The solid concrete construction offers protection from the elements and privacy between the two units.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Fantastic beach vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to spend a week at the beach. The setup of the house was perfect. The following features made it very comfortable and functional. Direct beachfront access, outdoor patio with multiple tables, large kitchen island for preparing food, fully functional kitchen with all appliances and food preparation utensils, second floor patio, third floor patio for star gazing, outdoor shower, grill, and paddleboard rentals across the street. We had a great time, it was very relaxing and so nice to walk out the back door and onto the beach!

2nd year in the same house and absolutely loved it!! Everything we need is at the house and you couldn't find a quieter beach. Wish we could spend the summer there.

Ideal in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit. As always, the rental was roomy, well appointed and clean. The floor plan is ideal as is its proximity to the beach. The views from up top are phenomenal. Amy [land lady] is always so easy to work with and will always make sure everything is top shelf. We will definitely be returning next year!

Great stay at a great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving at the Up on the Roof's " Stars" unit. The kitchen was well stocked and more than adequate for us to cook a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The beds were very comfortable and the condo was very well appointed and clean. The beach was great!

Beautiful home in an unbeatable location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home that is well maintained. By far the nicest, cleanest rental we have ever stayed in. Decorated to feel like home, not a cookie cutter hotel room. The furniture appears to be new high quality stuff that is as comfortable as my own. My wife is a clean freak but couldn't find anything to clean when we got there. A Clorox wipe on the kitchen and bathroom floors came up clean. The ocean views are wonderful and this section of beach has nice tidal pools that are great for children and pets. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We can't wait to return next year!
