About the property

Luxury, Four-bedroom/three Bath, Direct Ocean Front, Non Smoking Environment

Wide open ocean views and sea breezes will make you fall in love with this authentic ranch style beach home. “M & M Beach Oasis” is a beautiful, beautifully decorated beach home that provides plenty of space and tons of privacy to allow you to have a wonderful place to spend your vacation! This oceanfront home has amazing views of Top Sail Beach and it's only few steps to have your toes in the Atlantic Ocean sand. Sit on the beach, sit on the marvelous deck, or in the Gazebo and take in the crashing waves.

This home is located in the low-traffic area of Topsail Island which affords you peace and quiet in a tranquil setting while being just minutes from shopping, golf, casual and gourmet dining. Additionally, you are in walking distance of the Surf City pier.

If you are an active family or a laid-back retired couple, you will love the views from the two large picture windows facing the beautiful ocean. The home features an open living area with very comfortable couches and recliners to relax in. The extremely well equipped kitchen with granite counter-tops makes meals a breeze. The dining area seats 8-10 and there is additional seating for 4 at the pub table which both allow you to eat and dolphin watch at the same time. The four bedrooms comfortably sleep ten; two master suites one with a king and one with queen, and additional two bedrooms one with queen and other with 4 twin beds.

The wrap around deck has lots of sunning area across the complete ocean-side of the house and wraps around the front to watch the sunsets. When you need a break from the sun, there is an oceanfront Gazebo too! You will find the Gazebo a great place for sunrise coffee in the morning, and romantic nights watching the moonlight glimmer on the ocean.

Also on the deck for you is a convenient hot/cold outdoor shower, after playing at the beach, and an outdoor sink to wash your treasures you find on the beach.

The King Master bedroom has a king-size bed with a full size dual recliner couch, 42” HD TV, and a private bath. This makes the king master bedroom its own private get away. The Queen Master is ocean front with queen-size bed, 32” HD TV and its own private full bathroom. The two additional bedrooms are between the two master suites. One has a queen-size bed, 32” HD TV and the forth bedroom has a set of bunk beds, a day bed with a trundle bed, pack N Play, and its own 32” HD TV. There is additional full bath just across the hall from these two bedrooms.

The living area has a 48” HD TV, DVR, with a Blue Ray. (I know who needs TVs, with the ocean just outside the door) The DVR is a nice treat you won’t find in many rentals. Record your favorite shows or pause live TV so that you can enjoy your vacation on your time, and not have to miss any of your favorite shows or sports events. You can also maximize your vacation time by recording your favorite shows and being able to fast forward through the commercials. This gives you more beach time with your family (usually cutting 15-20 minutes out of a 1 hr. show). The High speed Wi-Fi Wireless Internet and unlimited long distance is available at no cost to our guest.

THE HARDEST THING IS DECIDING WHAT TO DO NEXT! There are boats/wave runners/paddle-boards/surfboards/ bikes/kayaking on the sound/parasailing/windsurfing and all your beach equipment needs available at many rental locations on the island. Located within a few miles from the house there is fishing, golf, shopping, several casual and fine dining, local bars for some great frozen drinks and ice cream shops (for the kid in us all). The paved shoulder pathway on the main road makes jogging or biking more enjoyable as well as safe. The pathway runs the entire way from north to south of the Island (about 22 miles long). If fishing is your interest, you can surf fish or make arrangements with a fishing charter to test your skills. Did I mention the island is known for the shark’s teeth? I am always looking for that big one!!

Enjoy watching the sunrise from the deck and soaking up all that the beach has to offer. There is no need to ever leave the property! You are away from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded beaches with all of the high rise hotels, but yet still close enough to enjoy a big city. Wilmington is 35 minutes away and offers many fine restaurants, numerous upscale and discount shops, parks, and an international airport (ILM).

You are sure to enjoy your stay at this first-class, affordable, vacation home. You are renting directly from the owner, not a rental agency. We are very committed to you and want to make sure you have the best vacation experience. When your vacation ends, we hope you say to yourself “we have found a place worthy of our business and want to come back next year”. We want you to return as our guest in the future. Towels and linens can be rented at Seaside Linen & Rental, TI Rentals, Sweat Dreams Linens, or feel free to bring your own. For your convenience there is a washer and dryer. Parking is ample and easy to access.


WE HAVE A NEW OCEAN FRONT RANCH COMING SOON! 5 Bedroom/ 3 bath will sleep 14

Why Merrijo Linton chose Topsail Island

We have spent our family vacations on many different beaches and different homes. When we found Top Sail Beach we knew this was our dream place to have a home and in time retire to. The beach was listed in 2013 in the USA Today as one of the best uncrowded Atlantic beaches!!!

What makes this house unique

Oceanfront, Private, Single floor only 9 steps to get in the house and only steps from the beach off the deck, high end furniture, great parking, fully stock kitchen, and VERY CLEAN!

Best Beach Vacation spot ever!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in Surf City, our first impression was "Wow, what an adorable little fishing town"! Loved immediately because we were looking for a place that was not hugely populated and touristy like Myrtle Beach.

We opened the door to M & M Beach Oasis, we were so happy! The cleanliness, decor and view EXCEEDED our expectations!

The house felt like "home". Lots of added touches like personal artwork, telescope, color scheme throughout. So beautiful. Lot's of love was put into this house to make anyone feel they are staying at their own beach oasis.

The bedrooms were spacious and inviting. 3 bathrooms gave everyone in our party their own "family" bathroom. My room faced the ocean and I slept with the window open and could see and hear the ocean on night long. It was a wonderful experience.

Large deck and gazebo facing the ocean was a great place for all in our party to gather. There were 7 of us and we were not tripping over each other at all.

The city provided plenty for us to do for a low key, relaxing vacation. We rented a pontoon boat on the Inter coastal and saw dolphins! We cruised over to an island and found sand dollars!

From the pier in town, we saw sea turtles and jelly fish swimming in the ocean and watched the local fisherman catching fish there.

Many great restaurants to choose from. Favorite fine dining was the Bistro. Great Mahi at Buddy's at the Pier.

A must is going to the turtle hospital. Very educational and a cute gift shop to get kids turtle gifts.

Merri and Mark were the best landlord/owners to deal with. Everything was superior!

The Reviews are True----place is Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you open the front know the choice of staying in this house was a wise one.

The ocean view hits you in the face, and then you look around...the place is beautiful. Everything you would need, quite literally, is here for you. It's difficult to add to previous posts.....but they are NOT wrong...I would not change a thing. We have rented many units in many locations, and, I almost hate to let you know, this is my favorite. We are looking forward for a return visit to this truly "Beach Oasis"!!

A great get away haven!

  • 5 of 5

This was a family reunion of sorts, and turned out to be the perfect place for us. You can't beat being steps away from the beach, but the beach-side gazebo is a real highlight for this property: most of the beach-front properties have nice decks for being outside at the ocean (and this one is no exception) but the gazebo is a fantastic feature. The location is great, the covered parking worked well for our vehicles (but watch for clearance on taller vehicles) and the driveway actually came in great to catch the afternoon sun on a couple of otherwise cool and windy days. We took advantage of the charcoal BBQ a couple nights, the kitchen is very nice and well stocked with appliances and utensils, and even plenty of "coozies" to keep beverages cold outside. The Master Suite is very roomy, and the walk-in closet is great. The rest of the rooms are wonderful too, nothing but compliments from the family on choosing a great place for our reunion. And little things: the telescope for looking at boats or dolphins, the outdoor sink for washing beach treasures and the outdoor hot/cold shower are all things that make this a great place to stay. And, the Owner was fantastic to deal with. We had a bit of a scheduling issue but working with the Owner to figure out a solution could not have been easier or had a better outcome: contacting the Owner was easy, quick response and very understanding of our issues.

We enjoyed the easy access to the was a little early for day-long beach activities, but so easy to get out for a beach walk and hunt for shark's teeth (10 found!). We also took advantage of the local restaurants (Sears Landing and Daddy Macs for great seafood, Gallagher's for burgers), and bought some fresh seafood for cooking in. We also got to spend some time at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue facility, also recommended.

I would highly recommend this property, and I hope to be back again!

We had a wonderful and relaxing week at this great vacation home! It was comfortable, charming, and very well kept. We could not get enough of the view! We ate some great food at the local restaurants, but could have just as easily cooked in because of the complete kitchen. We would love to come back with our whole family because it is such a great size! Thank you so much for having such a fantastic home!
