About Matt & Ally Schiefelbein

We are a family of five with three growing boys of our own! We own a home on Topsail Island and absolutely love it there! We wanted others to experience all the island has to offer and create wonderful memories of their own. We have renovated this vintage beach cottage to provide an incredible beach experience for visitors from all over!

Matt & Ally Schiefelbein purchased this house in 2014

Why Matt & Ally Schiefelbein chose North Topsail Beach

The cottage is directly behind the dunes on the beach, with beach access only 100 feet away! The deck offers spectacular views and the cottage is beautifully redecorated! It is located directly between Jacksonville and Wilmington, with a 5 minute drive to wonderful restaurants, shopping and art galleries in Surf City.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beach house is amazing! It's location is right on the beach and the decor is great, so much like a beach home from a magazine! We were on the upper deck all the time watching the beach and looking for dolphins. Shopping and restaurants were really close by and had awesome food, cool shops, found super good buys. I brought my mom and my aunt from Virginia and we were comfortable and just relaxed and watched movies and had the best time. We are definitely going to make this an annual trip and will be back!

Topsail Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from our trip to Topsail and we can't wait to go back. We loved the house and the area. We met Ally and Matt briefly and they were great to deal with throughout the whole experience, from booking to checking out.

Highly recommended, will be back.

Topsail Island is surrounded by a beautiful beach that has amazing powder sand, clear water, great fishing and awesome surfing! Enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck looking out over the ocean as the sun rises. You can go for a walk along the beach looking for sea shells as pelicans soar overhead. The dolphins play in the waves while you read a book under your beach umbrella with your toes in the sand! Fishing right in front of the cottage or down at the pier in Surf City (6 miles away) will give you a great catch of the day. Topsail Island is a sea turtle sanctuary and is the home of the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital. Wilmington is a short 25 minute drive to many sites including the river front shops and restaurants and the WWII Battleship. North Shore Golf Club as well as other local golf courses are 10 minutes away.
