About Jo-Anne Martin

We are both from North Carolina and bought this particular property because the beach here is how we remember the North Carolina beaches in the 50's - clean, peaceful and family-oriented. Life was simple then and families created wonderful memories of their vacations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Thank you for letting us rent your lovely home. We had so much fun taking the boat out and watching the beautiful sunsets... Hopefully we will have another relaxing vacation here next year."

Great Beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this perfect beach house. We brought our boat and having it literally in the back yard was wonderful!! Lots of room for everyone, short walk to the beach, Intracoastal waterway access!! Couldn't ask for more. A fun time was had by all!! Highly recommend this home, we are frequent renters and have a terrific vacation each time we stay here!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 plus grandma enjoyed our first vacation on Topsail. The location of the property is perfect. When we weren't at the beach we were exploring in kayaks or on our bikes. Owners JoAnne and Ted were extremely accommodating and the house is perfect for families with kids.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

So many have asked how our vacation on Topsail turned out. Bottom line is that I was NOT ready to leave. Our accommodations here were just perfect for our party. JoAnne and Ted made booking and arrival so simple. Answered a lot of questions I had before arriving. Beach access was a short walk and the canal behind the house offered a venue for my boys to canoe and fish. Perfect beach and ocean experience for my 3 and 5 year old grandchildren!! They loved it! Had my 90 year old mom with us and even she did great and enjoyed the stay here so very much. Met some of the neighbors who were very nice. They even invited the "little people" with us to enjoy the water slide they had rented for the weekend. We very much appreciated that. It was a short drive to visit my niece and her husband at Camp Lejeune which was the purpose of us choosing Topsail. Thanks JoAnne and Ted. Not sure when but I will return!

What an great house, in a great location. We had a total of six adults and two children in our party. We all had our own separate space, never once did we feel cramped. Between all of us, our goals were to relax, go to the beach, fish, and go out on the boat. And that we did. :) Having the boat ramp was AMAZING. We never disconnected the trailer off the truck. We also didn't have to worry about waking up early, putting in and taking out the boat at a public boat ramp, and even cutting our trips short because of boat traffic at ramps. You never really appreciate a private boat ramp and dock until you are able to experience it. The beach access was right across the road, maybe a 3-5 min walk, and it was kind of like having our own little beach. For being a holiday weekend, the evenings were so surprisingly quiet and soothing. I felt like I was back home in the country. The surrounding neighbors were also very welcoming and even gave my husband fishing pointers. Our kids love to fish, and we let them fish off the dock and they were catching fish every time they went out. Jo-Anne and Ted are great people and were so helpful. Couldn't have asked for better people to work with. They really made the booking process extremely easy and even went out of their way to return my uncles reading glasses to me. I cannot wait to visit their home again and maybe this time we can make it a week!

Perfect for Women's Writing Retreat Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I reserved the house to share with 4 other writers to spend the weekend together. Lots of space to retreat for private writing time, and great community space for gathering, cooking, eating, talking and sharing. Internet connection perfect. Excellent facilities. Beach and access wonderful. Friends from Wilmington even drove their boat up to the dock for a Sunday afternoon visit. An inspiring, soothing location. Well-maintained. Will return.

Car: necessary

A gorgeous family beach close to all the historic sights in Wilmington NC and minutes from Jacksonville NC military base. Picturesque and famous North Carolina Outer Banks with wild ponies, ferry crossings, Civil War fort, and State Aquarium are great for a day trip.
