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 if you have any issues at all. If your preferred week is already booked, please check out my other beachfront properties, my newest addition, "Comes A Time" (listing 748285) Sandpiper's identical sister house just two doors down from this property or Pelican's Landing, a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom just 1 mile north. (listing 651136).

John Svirk purchased this house in 2012

Why John Svirk chose Surf City

We spent a lot of time, money and effort to assure the house has all the conveniences you'd expect and then some. My goal is to keep the place 100% serviceable and carefree so you may enjoy yourself in a trouble free environment.

What makes this house unique

We and all our guests love the convenience of being centrally located in Surf City. Once you get here, you can leave the car parked. 2 blocks from the pier, shopping, restaurants, attractions, entertainment, groceries, you name it. Yet the beach can almost seem like you are on an island to yourself at times with your private beach access away from the pier crowd.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 2nd summer at 208 N. Shore. The new owners have made a lot of improvements in just a short time. The high deck chairs are outstanding. The beds are all comfortable and the aC rocks. We love the location being close to the pier and shopping and the waterfront view is fantastic. It takes a while to get used to the reverse floor plan and the deck stairs. It is a perfect home for us (family of 4 plus 2 grandparents and a dog). The house got hit by lightning at the beginning of our stay - the owner showed up the next day with 2 new flat screens (had just upgraded the house with 5 new flat screens). Our service was back up the next day - homes on the row still didn't have tv or internet when we left. We felt right at home and we are already looking forward to next summer.

Lovely home - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Sandpiper Landing over New Year's week - cold, cold, cold! But we loved the home - beautifully decorated and maintained, comfortable and cozy. And the location is ideal - ocean front and beautiful beach front - even in the winter! We will be back - outstanding vacation spot and the owner was great to work with - checked in with us to make sure all was well - and it certainly was. Thank you!

Fabulous house, dog friendly, great beach access!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this fabulous beach house to anyone looking to vacation in the Surf City area. The home was clean, well maintained, and John (home owner) was great to work with and responded very quickly anytime we had a question. The view of the ocean can't be beat, and access to the beach is easy for anyone able to negotiate a couple flights of stairs. The icing on the cake was being able to have our 2 dogs with us! We had a great time, despite record heat and humidity throughout our stay. The a/c in the house worked great...for which we were very thankful! We hope to rent this house again next year!

Great place for family, friends and dog.

  • 5 of 5

House had some wear and tear but for the most part was perfect. Loved the layout and the location. Kitchen cooking supplies (utensils/pots/pans etc.) were the best of any beach house I have stayed at. Also appreciated that there were beach chairs available for our use.

Owner's Response: Glad you liked it, yes by this time of year, late August, the house will have some signs of use. I will get in and repaint, refresh and do numerous upgrades very soon. In the mean time I am doing improvements as time allows. New ceiling fans installed last week!

True Oceanfront!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at Sandpiper Landing. The house was spacious and beautiful for my family of four which included two adults, a toddler and a 5 month old. This was our first vacation on Topsail Island and it did not disappoint. The weather was awesome and such a nice change and escape from the miserable Connecticut weather and people we are used to. The location of the house was very convenient and we were able to walk to get ice cream every night (pretty much the only time we ever would leave the house). We cooked and ate all our meals at the house and sat on the deck. Where else would we get a better view? We spent most of our time sitting on the decks or down by the beach just taking in all the beautiful views and sunshine. The views of the sunrise every morning were amazing. The gates on the deck were a nice touch to keep a fast paced 3 year old from taking off down them without us. The steps to the beach were perfect. It was so nice to be able to bring the kids down to water and back up to the house throughout the day instead of lugging 50 pounds of gear back and forth daily like we are used to when we vacation at Cape Cod. You are literally steps from the water. We lucked out and had great weather all but one day which still was an awesome day because we were there and not in CT! We will be returning next summer and we are already counting down the days!

Owner's Response: Sooo happy you enjoyed our home. We try very hard to keep the house in top shape for each and every guest. Thanks for the lovely review. We love having repeat guests year after year. Our repeat guests are also treated to preferential reservation opportunities, discounts and periodic specials as well! I'm looking forward to making even more improvements to the house this fall, as we try to do every year so my guests are pleasantly surprised that even the perfect vacation can get better and better every year.

Exceptional stay at Sandpiper Landing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many homes booked through VRBO and each one has been a pleasant experience. This home however, has to be the most well kept and maintained homes I've ever seen. Everything functioned properly and all appliances seemed new. Even the sliding doors leading to the deck operated smoothly. The home was well laid out and very open. Everything you could possibly need for a great stay has been provided. The owner was extremely pleasant to work with and has put a lot of thought and effort into providing guest a fantastic stay. We will most certainly be back. Thank you!

Another great stay at Sandpiper Landing

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year at Sandpiper was another fantastic time had by all. The weather was great (only 1 day of rain). This house fits all the needs anyone could want for a vacation at the beach. Our shark tooth hunting was truly exceptional- 338 last year surpassed by 735 this year. :) We left the sand sifting device Bill made for other shark tooth searchers to use. We will be back next year for sure with a new vacationer to train on the art of shark tooth hunting- Baby B Girl arrives in 1 month! Thanks for the stairs to the beach John, they are awesome!!! :)
