About the property

1 Bed, 1 Bath Oceanfront Condo

Be one of the first to enjoy this newly remodeled oceanfront condo located on Topsail Island. This predominantly residential island condo retreat overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and has been gutted and updated with all new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, tile etc. In fact, everything in it will be new and waiting to be enjoyed for the first time by a couple and/or small family (sleeps 2-4). Located on the third floor of building 3 (the only building to have an elevator), will guarantee you a captivating view and ensures easy move-in, move-out. Spend your days enjoying the unspoiled beaches, swimming in the over-sized beach-side pool or play tennis on the adjoining courts but if that doesn't interest you, you could always relax on the deck with a glass of wine and a good book; the options are endless! With sightseeing, fishing and good restaurants just a short distance away, you'll have everything needed to make this a memorable vacation, guaranteed!

About Jennifer McCall

A recently retired native of England, I live in Rochester, New York year round but have been visiting the Topsail/Surf City area for years and have made many lifelong friends here. Over the years, I could always be quoted as saying that NC has the best beaches in the world and I still believe that to this day; hence my purchase

Jennifer McCall purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jennifer McCall chose North Topsail Beach

Being an absentee owner, a condo made more sense than a single family dwelling and with the new siding and roofs, I felt that Topsail Dunes would be a good investment. I also surveyed people on the beach most of whom had been renting at the Dunes for years and the majority wouldn't consider going anywhere else; that was affirming.

What makes this condo unique

The view from a third floor condo on the ocean is spectacular and just sitting on the deck can be spiritual and calming. The pool is large enough to swim laps which is important to me and having it right there on the beach as an option, is a definite plus.

Beautiful and clean!

Everytime we stay here, we love it. It is so nice and updated. It is super clean which I value since I am a germaphobe. We love renting from Jeni. She is awesome! We will be back:)

Nice View

  • 4 of 5

I wish my review could be more happy and positive; it was for the small amount of time we were there. The condo was very nice and you couldn't ask for a better view. But our stay was long enough to unpack and repack the next morning because of a family emergency. I love Top Sail Island and the beautiful beach. Thanks Jeni for all of your support. I might add to caution against the travel insurance as it didn't help me as they called it an interrupted trip.

Owner's Response: Barbara: I can't thank you enough for taking the time to write a review, despite your 'challenging' experience. I really felt badly that you had to leave the day after your arrival and hope that you will return in the future and allow me to try and make up for your aborted trip. Sorry to hear about the VRBO travel insurance not paying out; isn't 'trip interruption' one of the reasons you bought it??? I'm afraid I'd challenge that result!

Beautiful condo on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent April 21-27, 2018 in this beautiful, tastefully decorated, like new condo on North Topsail. It was spotless, had a well-equipped kitchen, and the perfect covered balcony with a perfect ocean view for a morning cup of coffee and an evening glass of wine. The 3rd floor is easily accessible by a brand new ramp and elevator. Beach access is equally accessible by a wooden walkway (with an outside shower and hose) over the small dune. Great beach for shelling and sea glass, and if you have the patience, shark teeth! Great pool area that wasn’t yet open the week we were there, but looks well maintained and inviting. The owner, Jeni, is very responsive and easy to work with, as other responders have mentioned. We feel that we got so lucky when we found this gem. If you go, check out Jeni’s guest book for our suggestions on where the locals go for delicious fresh seafood. The residents we met during walks on the beach were so friendly and fonts of information. Thanks, Jeni, for a great and relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Debbie: Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. It always makes me feel fabulous when I know others have enjoyed my little paradise as much as I do! Hoping you'll plan a return visit in the future and that when you do, the weather will be a little kinder :) Thanks again. Jeni

Nicely decorated and updated condo with great ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, recently updated , 1(small) BR condo, with a very well -appointed kitchen. The ocean is right there, below the small deck, and the view and ocean sounds are amazing. Perfect for two people. Our only issue was we left onMay 1 and the pool still wasn’t open, even though it looked ready, with chairs out etc. It would have been a perfect place for some wind-protected sunning. The rental listing should publish the dates the pool is available.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review Mary Jo; every one of them is very much appreciated. Apologies again for the pool not being open but Season on Topsail runs May 15 through Labor Day and that is the 'drop dead' date for pools to be open. It is, however, usually open by May 1 (which still would have been too late in this particular case since you left that day) but has been delayed this year because the NC inspector has too busy a schedule and couldn't make it here until May 8!! Until then, no one is allowed in the area! Apologies again, but please consider a return visit and allow me to earn that elusive fifth star. I certainly can't change the size of the condo although I do mention its size in the VRBO description, but I'm sure I could come up with something to elevate my status in your eyes :) Thanks again and have a wonderful Summer.

Great Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Topsail and it is a lovely quiet town. Jeni's condo is beautifully appointed with all the amenities you will need for a comfortable stay. Jeni is always available if needed and very easy and kind to work with. The ocean view is gorgeous and serene. It truly is a "happy place" to relax and enjoy time away. Thanks Jeni for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Don: Thanks so much for the glowing review and for taking such good care of my little piece of heaven! From the onset, you were a pleasure to work with and frankly, I wish I could clone you as a rental guest; you are so considerate :) Hoping you'll be back to Topsail in the future and especially to 3306! Best, Jeni

Topsail Island is a place where families go to 'reconnect'. There's little to do except enjoy the beach, the surf and the fishing, so no interruptions. In the evening, there are many restaurants close by to choose from and most are family-friendly although barbecuing at home is always a great option. If you like to shop, Wilmington is a 40 minute drive and has a smorgasbord of options from antiquing to big box and specialty shops. Jacksonville, the home of Camp LeJeune Marine Corps., is also close by and is trying to compete with Wilmington for vacationers' attention. Wilmington’s history lives on every blade of grass on Civil War battlefields and every grain of sand on its beaches. It is the permanent home of the battleship U.S.S. North Carolina which served in every major offensive in the Pacific in WW II.

Quote from 'Echoes of Topsail' by David Stallman: “Topsail Island is a metaphor for life. It is ever changing and yet stays the same....If we pay attention, we can learn from Topsail how to enjoy life”.
