About Susan Wadsworth

Being a committed beach bum, I always dreamed of owning a beach house. In 2013, my dream finally came true. Topsail has been the perfect vacation spot for my family. For more info on the house, please contact me at 434.770.0644.

Susan Wadsworth purchased this House in 2013

Why Susan Wadsworth chose Surf City

When we decided to buy a house in Topsail, we looked and looked for the perfect spot. We found it in Livin' the Dream. The house was built in 2013, has all new appliances and amenities. The three decks offer amazing water views of both the ocean and the intercoastal waterway. Beach access is just steps away. The house has been perfect for our family as everyone can come and go as they please. We hope that you and your family enjoy it as much as we have!

                                                          Perfect Beach Rental

                                                          Beth B.

                                                          This house was the perfect rental for the 8 of us. We had 2 families each with 2 kids. It was the perfect set-up for us. Very clean, beautifully decorated and located directly across from the beach. It was so nice to have a private beach access to use. The owner was super nice and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful week!

                                                          I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Would love to have you back again soon!

                                                          Beautiful Beach House

                                                          Debra K.

                                                          My family and I fell in love with this beach house as soon as we walked through the door. This house is beautifully decorated, clean, and well equipped. The ocean view from the top deck is amazing - it's where we hung out most of the time, especially in the morning with our coffee. Loved the private gate to the beach - kept our area on the beach less congested with crowds. Owner is very friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond to your questions. It was our first time visiting Surf City and we loved the area. Beach house location is close to everything - we will be returning next year!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          So glad you all enjoyed your stay and the house! Let me know when you want to return.

                                                          THE PERFECT RENTAL HOUSE!

                                                          Debbi K.

                                                          This house is beautifully decorated and by far the cleanest rental house we have ever stayed in! It looks brand new! The two front decks provide awesome views, so you can still enjoy the ocean and the sun if you have little ones that need midday naps! The house is equipped with EVERYTHING you will need....lots of dishes, plastic storage for leftovers (a whole drawer full), knives and pots and pans. There are tons of games, puzzles and other activities....ping pong, darts and foosball to keep children entertained. And you are so close to everything....local grocery store, restaurants and shops! The beach access is directly across the street and is gated so you don't have big crowds on the beach. The owner was a breeze to work with...We will definitely stay here again!

                                                          Am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you love the house as much as I do! It has been my life long dream to own a beach house and I want my guests to feel like they are at home when they are there. Thanks for your feedback and kind words. Regards.

                                                          Great Stay!

                                                          Ed MKernersville, NC

                                                          My family and I loved the place - clean, roomy, comfortable, easy beach access. The ocean view from the top deck was fantastic - great place for morning coffee or late afternoon margaritas! Plan on staying there again next year.

                                                          Am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! Look forward to having you again next summer!

                                                          SHEER PERFECTION!!

                                                          MarieCanton, NY

                                                          This home has everything you could ask for in a vacation rental. It looks like it was decorated for the owner, not as a rental. Decor is beautiful, comfortable and functional.

                                                          I hope to have another opportunity to rent this beautiful home.

                                                          The stairs are a necessary evil of making this home magical, if you have mobility issues this is not the home for you.

                                                          Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

                                                          Owner's Response:


                                                          Am glad you found our home to be comfortable for you and your family. I do agree about the stairs but the height is what gives you the great ocean views! Also, you can count that as your workout for the day!

                                                          Best Family Vacation Ever!

                                                          Melissa H.Springfield, IL

                                                          We just got back from spending a week at this house. What a great time for our whole family. Everything was great! The bedrooms are set up perfectly for extended families to stay together. The beach access is convenient and easy for everyone to come and go on their own time. The house is beautiful inside and out. It is well kept and has great high end furnishings. We can't wait to book for next year! Thanks so much Susan for sharing your piece of paradise!

                                                          Owner's Response:


                                                          I am so happy that you enjoyed your week and the house met all your expectation! There is nothing like a little RNR at the beach! I look forward to hearing from you for next summer!
