Bedrooms 6
Space 2,200 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

6 bedrooms, 3 baths, Private Surf City Oceanfront home

Pelican Landing - Over 2200 Sq/Ft

We just doubled the square footage upstairs!. The House has roomy decks that span the front of both levels of this vacation spot, with a picnic table in place for alfresco dining at sunrise and sunset on the ocean front deck, and any time in between. A two-leveled boardwalk leading to the beach has a built-in bench for relaxing a little closer to the sandy strand, and there’s an outdoor shower for rinsing that sand off your tootsies.

Inside Pelican Landing, living quarters and two bedrooms a King and Queen, occupy the first level, with three oceanfront King bedrooms and a kids bunk room on the top level.

Living/dining area: The living area offers two new sofas and two arm Rattan chairs. The sofas are blue with white coral print and matches the arm chairs. Cuddle up with matching pillows tossed on each sofa and enjoy the amazing view, or have a movie night with the wall mounted flat screen TV. Tile floors and tan walls lead to the sliding glass door to the deck add to the relaxed feel of this room. Starfish-themed lamps and seascape prints complete the homey décor.

The oceanfront deck offers two picnic tables perfect for morning coffee or evening dolphin watching.

Dining Area: From the weathered wood top dining room table, you’ll always have an ocean view, either from the triple window on the front of the house or the double window on the side. Eight white chairs with white curved spindle backs offer plenty of seating under a elegant shell chandelier. Should you need more, there are five white bar stools at the generously proportioned bar between the dining area and kitchen.

Kitchen: This U-shaped kitchen has all the cabinet and counter space you could possibly need for preparing anything from a yummy shrimp boil to a complex five-course gourmet dinner. New stainless steel appliances, ocean blue walls, black counter-tops and weathered white cabinets make the kitchen feel like a true beach vacation - no nautical detail has been over looked. Open the exterior door between the dining area and kitchen, by the end of bar, and step out onto a walkway that leads to both the front deck and the rear parking area, making for convenient trips to the car for provisions.

Bedroom One (first level): Has a king-sized bed. The adjoining bath, which also opens onto the hall. There is a linen closet with four shelves to provide plenty of space for all those beach towels.

Bedroom Two (first level): A relaxing queen-sized bed here, set before a pair of windows that let the Topsail Island sun shine in. There’s a shell-filled lamp on the night table, and new tile flooring.

Bedroom 3, 4 and 5 (top level): Step through the sliding glass doors of this oceanfront room onto a deck that spans the upper level and offers awesome views of Topsail Island’s sand and sea. Inside, ALL (6) bedrooms have 55" SHDTVs with Google Cast capability as well as HD Cable

Bedroom 6 has a double and twin bunk bed for the kids.

About John Svirk

My wife and I moved to North Carolina over 20 years ago. All our kids are native Carolinians and we love coming to the beach to enjoy a break from the fast paced lives we live. We take pride in making sure we have our place as nice for our first guest as it is for the last of the season. Please feel free to contact me 24/7 if you have any issues at all.

John Svirk purchased this house in 2014

Why John Svirk chose Surf City

Being located in Surf City, Pelican Landing is close to dining and shopping yet removed from the main crowds that can gather during peak weeks. You will feel like you have your own private beach with room to do as you please.

What makes this house unique

This property is great for large families to gather together and enjoy some activities or just some down time. The relative low number of steps to the traditional downstairs living area is easy on those that may have difficulty with a reverse floor plan requiring a longer climb to the top level to reach the living area.

Beautiful Ocean Front Home in Quiet Setting- Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for families wanting a beach vacation. It is spacious, clean, and well kept. The wall of windows facing the ocean provide beautiful views of the beach, that everyone can enjoy- no matter what the weather is like outside. I would definitely recommend this house for anyone wanting to stay in Surf City.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Mona for the wonderful review. You'll be happy to learn the sliding glass door that was sticking is history. I replace the whole darn thing. The other minor issues you were kind enough to alert me to are well in hand as well. The house is as good as new!

House was super clean and updated.

  • 5 of 5

House was super clean and updated. The only thing I could complain about is the water pressure in the showers but that seems to be the same all over the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I will look at the water pressure. Perhaps we are getting some hard water build-up.

Perfect Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to stay at this beautiful beach home. There is plenty of room for 5+ families to sleep comfortably in the king size beds, three clean full bathrooms, two large covered decks and steps leading right to your own piece of beach heaven. The next time we travel to Top Sail Island area for vacation, this will be where we stay.
