This affordable beach vacation can sleep up to 9 people, including children. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with a private bathroom; the 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and a twin, and the 3rd bedroom has a pyramid bunk with a twin on top and a full size bed at the bottom. There is another twin bed bedroom #3. The entire floor has been re-done with ceramic tiles in the kitchen, living room, hallway, bathrooms and laundry room while the bedrooms have beautiful hardwoods.

There is an enclosed outside shower with hot water for washing off. Other amenities include a gas grill and picnic table on the lower level. There is ample parking for up to 6 cars.

Surf City/Topsail Beach offers a family-oriented beach vacation.

Perfect spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were first time renters and a bit nervous about getting the right house for our family vacation but we were very excited when we arrived. The house was exactly as pictured and in a great location for access to the beach. We had 6 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone. House comes with everything you need. Minnie was great to work with and she responded very quickly to all of my questions before we went. I can see a return trip in the future. Thanks Minnie for making our vacation so nice!

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this home. It was exactly as the description stated and exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at other places that appear large-but it was just very good photography. No surprises here and Minnie was very accommodating. The pictures show it all! Thank you Minnie!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We have used this site for several family vacations from coast to coast. Ms. Minnie provides a wonderful home on the beach with everything you need - a true (HOME AWAY FROM HOME) Very clean and neat with all you need. She makes the process effortless and will work with your vacation dates. Owner has a wealth of knowledge about the area, where to eat, fish, play etc. Ms Minnie Thank You for your home. We highly recommend this home to other families and when we return to the area will look at re-renting. The community was quiet and accommodations comfortable. A very relaxing area. Beach chairs are provided to enjoy the Carolina sunrises.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

I really love this rental house. Plenty of space. Lots of nice updates. Really close to a beach access. Big fan of the nice enclosed outdoor shower. Comes in handy when you have a toddler who enjoys rolling around in the sand.

Highly recommend this beach home! We had wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our son and his wife. We were very happy with the house. It was described exactly and we were very impressed with the owner who was very pleasant to work with. She was very prompt and always answered any questions we had. The home is very clean and we enjoyed the covered large parking area and rinse off area downstairs. A very short walk to beach gave us a very quiet and beautiful beach. Even with the main road in front of the house it was very quiet and easy to get around. Great seafood about 5 min away in surf city. We enjoyed going to south end of island also which was 5 min drive away with great parking. Great memories were made and we appreciated this beach house.
