3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom oceanfront with spectacular ocean views
The “Lime & Coconut” oceanfront duplex property on North Topsail Beach is the fulfillment of a dream shared between two sisters, Dawn and Deanna, from Michigan. The area was first explored by Dawn while on a summer vacation in 2013 with her husband and young daughter. The sisters, Deanna and Dawn, had been looking for a place where they could escape from the harsh Michigan winters. They believed the Carolinas would offer what they were looking for and it did not disappoint.
Deanna purchased this House in 2013
Why Deanna chose North Topsail Beach
After exploring the Atlantic coastline North of Myrtle Beach and visiting many of the interesting beach communities, the family came upon a tall bridge rising high over the Inter-coastal Waterway and leading on to North Topsail Beach. As they reached the bridge summit, the panoramic view of the island completely took their breath away. Dawn could barely speak, but managed to uttered these simple words, “This is the place…this is it…there is no other place for us!” So the family set out on a mission to find an oceanfront home that would connect with them, and one which would translate all the warmth and charm exuded by Topsail Island itself. After considering several available island properties, they came upon a house on the edge of paradise that spoke to them. They immediately nicknamed the house “pinkie” for its pink stucco exterior. It was a tall beautiful duplex with character and personality, but one that was also “tired” and needed some love – a fixer upper for sure. So a discussion ensued between the sisters and a plan was crafted to purchase both sides of the duplex. In January of 2014, a significant renovation project was collectively undertaken to restore both properties and breathe new life into them once again. Deanna stayed at the property through most of the renovation, overseeing the work and doing much of the interior painting, flooring, and finishing work herself.

One of the best houses we've stayed in
We have been coming to Topsail for 11 or 12 years now, always staying in a different house. The Coconut has to be one of the best we've stayed in. Everything was clean and fresh, the house is well maintained and the kitchen well stocked. The beds are comfy and the bedrooms nicely decorated and well appointed. Deanna was a dream to work with! We rented through agencies the first years, but the last few through VRBO/Home Away. It is so much nicer to have one point of contact for the questions, and Deanna quickly responds. We had a wonderful week weather-wise. Despite concerns that Dorian was going to ruin our vacation, we were so pleased that Topsail seemed to be spared. And Deanna was on the ball communicating with us and alleviating all our concerns about that. I can't say enough good things about Deanna or The Coconut, you won't go wrong renting this property. Thank you, Deanna, for creating this little slice of heaven vacation spot!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Coconut! It was bright, with lots of windows. The view was incredible from every window, and from both decks. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short by hurricane Dorian, but we enjoyed every minute we had at The Coconut. Deanna was wonderful to work with and we hope to rent here again.
Fantastic - Clean, Quiet and Right on the Ocean
We loved the house and the direct access to the beach. We had every item we could have wanted in the house and it worked well for our three kids, ourselves and my 81-yr old mom. Nothing like waking up to the sound of the waves and to views of the sun rising over the waves. We would love to return in 2020.
My family and i had a fabulous week by the beach.the house was beautiful and clean and just everything we needed to reset from the stress of everyday life.
Great house at a perfect location
We had three couples traveling and it was great for each to have bedrooms that accommodated us(ie. no twins or bunk beds). Also each couple had a private bathroom. It is rare to find a house that doesn’t try to fit 14 people into the structure. I highly recommend this property.
Beautiful Beach House Gorgeous Views!!
This was our second stay at this house and it will definitely not be our last. The house is not only spotlessly clean but it is beautifully decorated & comfortable; you will feel at home the minute you set your luggage down! The house is right on a beautiful, clean beach which you will practically have to yourself because, on the left side of the house, there are no houses for about a half a mile down the beach.
The house is perfect for a family reunion. We had our 2 adult sons with their wives with us. In the open space floor plan, the six of us were very comfortable and had plenty of room. But, we could also get away for privacy if so desired. The kitchen is well outfitted and roomy and we had lots of fun creating some wonderful meals together.
North Topsail Beach is a great place to relax, put your feet in the sand, soak up the sun, watch the dolphins play! You may also catch a glimpse of a Sea Turtle making its way to the dunes to lay its eggs, or join the local Turtle enthusiasts as they assist newly hatched baby turtles make there perilous way out to the sanctuary of the ocean. This property is about 1 mile from Seaview Fishing Pier and about 3.5 miles from the High Rise Bridge.
