Overview

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 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 deck steps puts your toes in the Atlantic Ocean beach. 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 within 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 allows 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 a queen, and additional two bedrooms one with queen and other with full bed and a day bed with a trundle bed.

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 getaway. 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 fourth 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 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 are 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 are 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.

Hated to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family wedding, so I had the opportunity to visit 5 other rental properties in Surf City and Topsail, and this one was by far the nicest.The other properties were nice, but were obviously bland rental properties with no personal decorations and it was easy to see the owners did not spend any time there. This property shows that it is well loved and has beautiful granite in the kitchen, gorgeous art work on the walls, and the finishes, decorations, and appliances were high end. We had family over for dinner and they all agreed- our rental was the winner!

Lovely home for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

M and M Beach House was a great spot for our family to celebrate birthdays and Easter together. My husband and I joined our son, his wife and 2 year old granddaughter as well as our daughter to enjoy the Carolina shore. The house was immaculate and truly had the most well equipped kitchen I have ever found in a rental home! We all love to cook and the house had everything we needed to make great meals. Clearly the owners have grandchildren since the house was set up with toddler safety in mind and plenty of sand toys in the outside toy box. The gazebo was a wonderful spot to watch the surf, diving ocean birds, and the many pods of dolphins we saw frolicking by! The owners were awesome and extremely accommodating to our needs. I can't thank them enough for sharing their home and making our visit extra special. We used Sweet Dreams Linens for our sheets, towels etc. They, too, were easy to work with and reasonably priced. I highly recommend them. As few things to note for future renters, remember to bring the items Merri jo lists on the final papers from toiletries to dish soap to extra toilet paper, paper towels and beach towels. Also, although the Queen Master is oceanfront, it is tiny and the best ocean view is actually from the bathroom window; not a bad thing, just an FYI. On a positive note, you do have the joy of hearing the waves at night from the open windows! My only suggestion to the owners it to get screens for the front and back doors in the living room, so they can be propped open to enjoy the ocean breeze. Overall, this is a super house, well maintained, well equipped, with direct beach access and owned by excellent people! I would highly recommend it! Thanks!!

Home was family friendly & well furnished for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very positive experience. The weather was variable, but with the appropriate attire, it did not dampen or “chill” our vacation spirit! Being right on the ocean - with the sand, the beautiful view, & the sound of the waves, made it fun for all. Thank you!
