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.

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”.

Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

Jeni’s place is so inviting and beautiful! We enjoyed ourselves from the minute we walked in the door. She is so accommodating and available to help with whatever needed. Hope to stay here again in the future!

We loved our time there.

  • 5 of 5

The view was breathtaking and the beach access was very close. The area isn't overly commercial, which we liked since we prefer a natural setting. The condo itself is very beautiful and updated. We ate most of our meals in and had everything we needed. It felt very much like home. In addition to walking on the beach we also made use of the pool, which was also close by. We explored the island and enjoyed the museum, sea Turtle hospital and kayaking. Jeni was very easy to work with and answered all our questions. We will definitely visit again.

100% perfect

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Jennifer's "Happy Place" was the best experience I had this summer.

The condo is super clean, the view is top notch and top sail is just perfect.

If you you're looking for something very calm and relaxing, this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Jonathan: Thanks so much for your kind words and I'm glad your experience with Topsail and our condo was 'top notch'. Since I can't use the place much, I get great satisfaction out of hearing how much others enjoy it, so thank you for loving it as much as I do and hopefully we'll see you again in the future. Best, Jeni

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Topsail. While we normally choose a livelier beach, we decided to try something low-key and relaxing. Topsail was the perfect destination and we couldn't have chosen a better condo for our family. The furnishings and décor were modern and comfortable. We ate several meals in the condo, and it was stocked with everything we needed to do so. I was delighted to see a washer/dryer set when we arrived which makes beach life with wet towels and suits much easier. Normally, my biggest complaint when staying away from home is the bed, but the mattress in this condo was actually quite comfortable and we slept very well. As much as I love sitting on the beach all day, I think my favorite part of the vacation was sitting on the balcony with an amazing oceanfront view and listening to the beautiful sounds of the ocean which I already miss terribly. This condo is a gem and Jeni was a great hostess! She was easy to reach any time we had a question. No question, we will be returning to Topsail in the future and hope to stay in condo 3306 at Topsail Dunes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Keri. It's always gratifying to know that guests enjoy the condo as much as I do :) Also happy that Topsail Island didn't disappoint. You're right, it's not an over-the-top, vacation-rowdy crowd; just families looking to disconnect from their hectic lives and enjoy a little nature. Thanks again for this glowing review and we'll hope to see you back in Topsail in the future.
