About Lewis Realty Associates, Inc.

We are 4 girl friends who decided it was time to get a beach house together that we could enjoy ourselves and share with vacationers on Topsail Island!

Lewis Realty Associates, Inc. purchased this house in 2013

Why Lewis Realty Associates, Inc. chose Topsail Island

This house was in the PERFECT location on the island, and provided the space we wanted. It had that true look and feel of Topsail Island, and we knew it was the right house!

What makes this house unique

The house is in a quieter residential area, so we didn't have to worry about the beach being crowded during the busier summer season. The cottage is also very close to the Jolly Roger Pier, Beach Shop & Grill, and the few gift shops that make Topsail Beach so quaint!

Lovely September beach trip

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from the barnacle and the house was great! We had 3 dogs so without many options we were so happy to find this gem! The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the upstairs boasts 3 beds in a large loft but that won't always work for everyone-worked for us and would be great for families with a bunch of kids who could all "sleepover" upstairs. The house is appointed well with plenty of pots/pans, etc. loved having outside shower and laundry just off kitchen was great! Wish there had been a gas grill but we brought a camping size one. Hope to book again next year and many more!

Beautiful Barnacle from the Bing's

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say that we had a wonderful time staying at the Barnacle. It was very nice and spacious! Everything we needed to feel like home was supplied at this house. We enjoyed the beach access and the wonderful amenities! It was nice being able to take a walk on the beach and easily find where we were staying by the red barn-shaped roof. Very unique! It wasn't over-crowded on the beach and it was very nice to be able to see everyone on the beach from the deck. The only thing I would recommend would be chairs that sit up a little higher on the upper deck so you can see over the banister to the beach. The chairs up there sit very low. Other than that it was great! We will definitely be recommending this rental to family and friends and we hope to visit this location again in the future! Thank you for such a wonderful place and your great service!

What a great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing at Topsail Beach for nearly 50 years and haven't found a better home than the Barnacle! Everything has been thought of, nothing left out!

The home is really perfect for multiple families or large groups. There are large gathering spaces indoors and out combined with private spaces to retreat and relax with a book or a cocktail! The kids can take over the upstairs bonus/game room for the entire time you're here while the adults can have their private retreat on the main level.

The kitchen is really great! 2 coffee makers ensure just the right amount of caffeine is available for everyone!! The kitchen is really well stocked and can satisfy the most discerning cooks.

The dining spaces are large, both indoors and out. So regardless of the weather, this home can accommodate large gatherings at meal time.

The outdoor space is amazing with multiple gathering areas on the deck in the sun and protected from the sun, so everyone can enjoy the huge deck. The outdoor furnishings were abundant and comfortable! Perfect location to enjoy the last part of the day with a cocktail and friends! The roomy outdoor shower with hot and cold water was refreshing and really convenient after a day on the beach. All this just a few yards from the ocean and affordably priced!

The home is warmly decorated and you'll feel like you're at home! I'll look forward to returning to the Barnacle with family and wonderful friends again!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A perfect extended family vacation home--great set up for grandparents and two grown couples on the second living area floor and all the kids and their friends upstairs and there is still room downstairs for a babysitter or maid to have total privacy.

The roomy outdoor shower has hot water. We had our little dogs with us so it was fabulous to be able to bath them off with warm water after a great day on the beach. Dogs love the tidal pools as much as children do. They thought it was the best vacation ever.

The kitchen is fully equipped including a fresh water dispenser, coffee machine, and gourmet utensils. There are even fresh herbs on the ground floor.

The spacious deck has multiple areas including a nice big table for dining alfresco. It is under the covered portion of the deck so there is just enough protection to be outside overlooking the beautiful Atlantic, but not feeling like your food is going to blow away. Move on to the outdoor section for cocktails. It was so beautiful, comfortable, and inviting we did not want to go out.

The kids love being upstairs with their own huge tv, game tables, and nice balcony. If you are nostalgic for the old slow beach life -- this is the house. Even though everything is spotlessly clean and brand new -- it has retained it's charming flair. We ail be back.

Great oceanfront views of beautiful blue water!

  • 5 of 5

You feel like you are sitting on the blue ocean waters whether inside or on a huge deck. The color of the water on this island is amazing...the Atlantic is typically murky but this is more like the can see your feet when swimming. The house is a perfect old timey beach house (just like they should be) so you feel like you can live in it instead of tiptoe around. The upstairs is one big room which is perfect for a family or all the kids with the adults downstairs. We put the kids up, adults on main level and two teenage boys in the ground floor twin room. It worked out beautifully- we were all together yet had "our space" when we wanted it. This is a repeat for our two families.

Loved The Barnacle!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at The Barnacle! The home is comfortable and inviting and the children loved the top floor. I personally loved the deck and so did my dog. Topsail Beach is such a sweet and family friendly beach. They have the cutest skating rink I've ever seen and the tidal pools are wonderful! I will recommend this location to friends and we'll be back.

Most activities will require a short drive (5-10 minutes) from the condominium complex. One unique attraction for Topsail Island is the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital located in Surf City. This facility adopts and rehabilitates Loggerhead turtles, watches and protects turtle nests, oversees turtle hatchings, and other exciting aspects of turtle care. The hospital has limited open hours where visitors can view the turtles currently in the facility, and visitors can purchase items from the gift shop!
