Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Elegant ocean side, ocean view townhouse on quiet ocean front street walking distance to town and fine or casual dining or shopping. This is one of the most desirable locations on the island and the beaches are very clean and private.

It is a fantastic place that is built on an ocean front lot yet has two duplexes built in front of it (so it is not ocean front...but as close as you can get and definitely the next best thing!!).

Next to us is the beach emergency access for the fire department so that is what gives us the spectacular ocean views. This area can never be built on and we sit on our deck and enjoy the surf. You can actually see the waves from the living area, and from the kitchen while eating or cooking. You can even see the sun rise over the ocean while lying in the comfortable Simmons world class beauty rest mattress!

Not only is it furnished for supreme comfort it is decorated to make you feel completely at ease and relaxed from the moment you walk in. We made this our home away from home and it is decorated that way. The high top resin deck chairs make sitting on the deck like sitting on a thrown. The view is breath taking.

The property also is walking distance to town and sits on a private and secluded residential section of surf city. There are no other town houses around - just single family homes and it is a 25 mph road for only beach front homes so it is quiet and relaxing. The town house has its own private parking and beach access (no streets to cross of course because you are on an ocean front lot already). You just couldn't have a better location.

This home is newly renovated for the 2014. It is tastefully decorated and features quality fixtures and flooring. There is a well appointed kitchen and comfortable furniture throughout the home.

Because we know a good vacation can only be good if you can get a good nights sleep, we feature premium bedding with Simmons World Class Beautyrest mattress on the King Size master bed and also on the two full size beds in the second bedroom. The upper bunk twin beds is a quality Serta mattresses. The home is equipped with comfort height 18 toilets and custom lighting. Bed linens are included at no extra charge (many units would charge you an additional fee of approx ~$25 per bed for this) [note that the mattresses are very thick and would require deep pocket sheets if you choose to bring your own]. Departure cleaning is also included (many units charge you an additional $90 for this).

The home has WiFi (wireless internet), 46' LCD HD TV with Blue Ray DVD, and premium sound system. Bedrooms also have cable LCD Flat screen TVs. Sleeping accommodations are one king, one twin over full bunk, one full, and one queen sleeper sofa.

Topsail is a great place for families and fun. Enjoy quiet relaxation of the ocean breeze and watching the surf from the comfy high top resin deck chairs or a moonlight walk on the beach.

The home has a private access to the beach directly in front of your door. This access is for town homes only. Enjoy watching the children play on the beach right from your deck or fish off the beaches right in front of the town house. You can also walk up to the Surf City Pier to see what's biting.

Enjoy walking for literally miles on clean white beaches looking for prehistoric sharks teeth (Topsail is one of the few area on the east coast where they are easily found) or gather shells or 'sea beans' (small polished pebbles) for you collection. Visit the famous Sea Turtle Hospital here on the Island (see link on other page) or stop at one of our local shops and pick up some fresh home made fudge, pies or or seafood.

About Ted Waltz

We are originally from Kennett Square PA which is near Philadelphia. Debbie grew up in Williamsville NY which is a small town near Buffalo NY and moved to Kennett Square after going to college in the Philadelphia area. Ted grew up and lived most of his life in Kennett Square prior to moving to North Carolina. Teds parents both worked in the school system in Kennett (his father as a teacher and his mother as the school nurse). Ted was a Mushroom Farmer (that region is known for being one of the largest producers of fresh Mushrooms in the world). We both still have family in Kennett Square and in Buffalo but they enjoy coming to visit us in North Carolina (especially in the winter!). Our three children are grown now and one is in Vet School, one is a middle school teacher and the third is working on his graduate degree in engineering. We currently live on a small farm outside of Raleigh in Apex NC. We have 2 Rottweilers, a St Bernard, 2 Peruvian Paso horses, one Paso Fino horse and one miniature donkey. You can also frequently find our daughters' dogs (an Australian Shepard and an English Bull Terrier)

Ted Waltz purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Ted Waltz chose Topsail Island

We purchased this home in October of 2014 after having purchased the homes on either side of this one in 2011 and absolutely loving the location. This home is a perfect as a place to come and get away for a little sun sand and relaxation. We have been coming to Topsail for 30 years and our three children have grown up enjoying the beaches and looking for sharks teeth in the sands of Surf City. We used to travel here from the Philadelphia area because the beaches were so clean and private. We've always felt it was worth the trip and met many who traveled much further than us.

Topsail is a wonderful family place but it is also a place where fishermen and surfers can share the beach and enjoy the long season of warm crystal clear water. In the fall we would stay out all night and wait on the beach with our children for the turtle nests to hatch. Vacationing in Topsail has always been worth the trip. After 30 years we finally bought something.

This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm and inviting too. Since we already know Topsail will charm you, we want the home to charm you too! We made a real effort to renovate this vacation home and its bedding and furnishing so that you will definitely want to return! You will find our homes stand out from the crowd by the attention to your comfort and enjoyment. From our reviews, we think we hit the mark!

What makes this townhome unique

We love that we can walk to the beach front restaurants and the fishing pier. We also love that we have a great view of the ocean from our deck sitting in the high top chairs. It is really nice to have a private beach access (which is found right in front of your door!) and not to have to cross the street to get to the beach. It really feels like beach / ocean front without ocean front prices and that makes it very affordable for people to get a high quality rental in a fantastic location.

Another Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in Fan-To-Sea....loved it just as much this time as the first! This year we enjoyed a couple of new places we hadn't been before. One was an awesome walk on the pier! It's so close and what a view! The other was the New York Deli, which was with in walking distance (we drove because we figured we would be too full to walk back! LOL!). Great trip...got to bring our pups! Great area...lots of family fun nearby! Great place to stay...beautiful, clean, and super comfy recliners! 🙂? Thank you! Hope to get a chance to come back next year!

Amazing house with wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Ted was so great to work with. Very nice and accommodating. The house itself is gorgeous with a great view. You can see the ocean from the living room and from all sides on the deck. The deck chairs sit up high and they're very comfortable. We loved them. All the furniture in the house is comfortable and not like the usual furniture in the vacation homes. Out of all the places I've stayed on the island, this has been my favorite. We will definitely be back. Thanks again Ted!

Perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is perfectly appointed and located. Ted was easy to work with and quick to respond throughout the process/stay. Covered parking for 2 midsize vehicles was great. The beds are comfortable and kitchen has everything you need. The hose outside the door was perfect for rinsing off feet/chairs/dogs. Coffee on the deck in the morning was a favorite. The only thing I wanted for was blackout curtains in the back bedroom so my dog would sleep in. If the stairs to the beach are too much for you, the public/fire access at the end of the drive is an easy option. I wouldn't hesitate to book this unit again.

Tips:

You will need HD laundry detergent.

Pull your car up to the upper driveway for easier loading/unloading.

Awesome Ocean View Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

A++ Great pet friendly townhouse with ocean views from the deck. We loved the reverse floor plan and deck off the living room. What a great location... right on the Surf City Fire Departments Beach Access road. You walk out the door and are on the beach in 15 seconds. We've rented 8 different Topsail properties in the past 4 years. This is one of our favorites. Thanks Ted... we'll be back again!
