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 full bathrooms, an open floor plan kitchen, dining and living room, and spacious decks including a bar top railing and sun deck on the dune overlooking the ocean.

The master bedroom features a King bed, 32inch LED television and en-suite bathroom with a large tiled walk in shower with bench. A 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 offers a tiled tub/shower. All of the bedrooms have ocean views from the windows.

The kitchen has stainless appliances, an awesome farmhouse sink, and tasteful 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, dining table and bar top railing 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 and beach themed furniture. 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 available. 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.

Amazing views, comfy beds, super clean. I can't imagine a better place to stay on Topsail. Loved the location. Every morning we all said, "Wow" looking out the windows at the beach and ocean. Every detail was thought out and taken care of.

Beautiful Cottage on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at 'Surf's Up' ! The cottage was very clean! We have rented many houses on VRBO over the years and this one was the cleanest of all! The views of the ocean were amazing. We saw dolphins on many occasions. We walked the beach several times each day and the beach was so clean! If you like shell collecting, this is the beach for you. We collected a couple bags of shells during our 4 day visit.

We were visiting Topsail because we are considering buying a house and moving to the NC coast. Topsail was one of the islands that we checked out during our stay. Becky mentioned in one of her correspondences with us that she lived on the island and would be happy to speak with me about life on the island. I called her and she went out of her way to talk to me for more than a half hour about what it is like to live on Topsail... Thank you, Becky!

If you're looking for a clean, charming, cozy ocean front beach house with amazing views, this is the place to stay!

Beautifully updated cottage with steps leading to the beach. Amazing views if the weather cooperates. Extremely quite beach in February. We only heard the sound of the waves.

Becky is great to deal with, we booked last minute, and everything was done quick. We are from Indiana and traveled to North Carolina to attend a Marine graduation. We wanted to stay in a house instead of a hotel. The house is everything that is stated and more! Very nice, and clean. The ocean is steps away off your own private deck. New and updated appliances, big rooms, fully stocked kitchen, beach toys and chairs in the shed... It is just perfect. The best beach house we have ever stayed in. You do have to provide your own bathroom and beach towels, and fitted bed sheets. You do have neighbors on both sides, however you have your own privacy and everyone keeps to themselves. The beach is beautiful, clean, and well kept. Our favorite part of the stay was all the dolphins!! We saw them right out our door daily, all day long. The kids loved that, and they were close. We all enjoyed watching them play! We would love to stay here again if we are ever back in the area and recommend this beach house to everyone! Not one complaint!
