About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6

Surf's Up was completely renovated in 2015. This perfect, pet free vacation cottage has spectacular views, classic charm, brand new bathrooms, all new stainless steel appliances and beach décor throughout. It is the perfect spot to spend time relaxing, enjoy your vacation and create family memories to last a lifetime.

Be sure to read our reviews and see how much all of our guests have enjoyed their time at Surf's Up.

Surf's Up is located 2.8 miles north of the swing bridge or 5.5 miles south of the high rise bridge. Heading north, it is just past the Surf City line in North Topsail Beach. Enjoy all the sounds of the ocean from this quiet setting on a dead end street.

Our home features three completely updated bedrooms, two all new full bathrooms, an open floor plan kitchen, dining and living room, and all new decks including a bar top railing and new sun deck on the dune overlooking the ocean.

The master bedroom features a King bed, 32inch LED television and completely renovated master bathroom with a large tiled walk in shower with bench. The brand new stacked washer and dryer is located in a closet in this master bedroom. The second bedroom features a Queen bed and the third bedroom has two twin beds. The bathroom in the hall is all new with a tub/shower. All of the bedrooms have ocean views from the windows.

The kitchen has all brand new stainless appliances, an awesome farmhouse sink, new countertops and all new light fixtures. It is well equipped with everything you will need if you choose to cook here. When you see the views from the kitchen and dining table you may decided you won't want to eat anywhere else. The table seats six and there are three stools around the island. To add to your beach experience even the dishes and silverware are beach themed.

The living room has a wall of windows offering breathtaking views of the ocean. All of the beach themed living room furniture is brand new. If you happen to get tired of looking at the ocean there is a 55 inch LED television and Blue Ray DVD player. Wireless internet is provided as well. The glass top coffee tables are filled with starfish, sea glass, sand dollars, shells and sharks teeth found by our family in Topsail.

Our home was part of the North Topsail Beach phase 5 shoreline restoration project completed June 30, 2015. This project added several feet to the dune off of our deck and raised the beach several feet. This allowed us to extend our deck 8 feet wide and 18 feet long across the dune offering a great sun deck overlooking the ocean. Steps take you right down to the beach.

Quilts, blankets, pillows and kitchen towels are provided. Sheets, beach and bath towels are not provided. A charcoal grill is provided. To maintain the home and assure that it is clean and comfortable for all to enjoy NO PETS ARE ALLOWED and there is NO SMOKING permitted inside.

This is a one of a kind home that offers spectacular views and many new upgrades while maintaining the classic beach cottage charm.

Great property, well maintained and very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. It's far enough from the Surf City traffic and crowd and still close enough so that you can easily go to the restaurants there and the supermarkets and shopping. The deck/patio is so close to the water that we just stayed on the deck instead of being on the beach, saving me the lugging of chairs, coolers etc and having access to my full refrigerator and kitchen. The beach section is away from most of the public access so it's quiet without being lonely...and if you go keep going North you'll find the turtle nesting area.

The property was clean, neat and 100% ready for us at the time promised. We had absolutely had no issue during our trip. Becky texted us on the day to let us know when the place was ready. And we let her know when we left. My kids and I were very happy here and enjoyed our time completely.

This was our second year traveling from Vermont for our 2 week vacation. As the first year, this year was everything we could have wanted!

The house is equipped with everything you need, extremely comfortable, very clean and in a great location. On rainy days there are numerous things to do. From exploring Jacksonville or Wilmington, to going to the aquarium or the USS South Carolina, which I highly recommend.

But if the weather is nice there is nothing better then getting up in the morning and taking a walk on the beach, drinking your coffee on the deck while watching the surf, or fishing. In the afternoon since you are the beach there is no need to lug coolers because if anything is needed you are right there. The beach is beautiful with lots of shells and sharks teeth. In the evenings we loved sitting on the deck and watching the waves. We even saw our neighbors the first week catch a shark!

Nothing can describe the experience!

Thanks for great vacation.

Amazing!!! Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as advertised. It was well equipped, clean and the beachfront deck was breathtaking. The beach was like having a private beach setting. My family of 5 had plenty of space (even though we were on the beach the entire time). We were able to cook seafood daily with the well equipped kitchen. The updated house was beyond any other house we have rented in the past and exceeded our expectations. Becky was amazing to work with through the process. North Topsail is a definite recommendation to all and if you can get this house, do it. When your here be sure to visit Sears Landing for dinner, The Trailer Bar for drinks, and The Crab House for seafood. We rented waverunners in Sneads Ferry from Makin Waves, the were wonderful. We were lucky enough on our beach to see a loggerhead turtle nest one morning that the preservationists were marking. Pretty cool. Thank you to Becky for putting together such a great place to relax and enjoy the ocean!

Great house!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Surfs Up could not have gone any better. From the original booking through the time we left we were treated great.

The house itself is on a great very private part of the beach, which offered us our own strip of private beach. The accommodations inside the house were tremendous. Every kitchen appliance or utensil that we need, it was available. Plus, this was the cleanest house we have stayed at on our trips to the beach. I can not stress enough how well maintained the owners have kept the house.

I will not hesitate to rebook with Surfs Up in the future. In fact, it will be my #1 choice in Topsail.
