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.
What makes this House unique
The Lime & Coconut beachfront duplex has undergone a complete renovation with new windows, doors, siding and roof. It literally has the look and feel of a brand new home and has become the talk of Topsail Island. We are genuinely thrilled to share our special beachfront homes with other vacationers and to offer them an extraordinary vacation experience on North Topsail Beach.

August 4-11, 2018 - "The Coconut"
We found The Coconut to be very clean, comfortable and decorated nicely. Excellent location! This was an annual family reunion and the rest of our clan stayed just .2 miles down the beach. It was great to have everyone so close! Also, the owner, Deanna, was wonderful to work with. We highly recommend this property!!!
Felt like home
We loved our time at the coconut. From the minute we walked in it felt like we were right at home. The house was well maintained and the views from every balcony were amazing. The beach was not crowded at all and we even found several shark teeth. On our last night we watched a sea turtle lay eggs just three houses away! Would definitely recommend booking this property, we will definitely be back next year! Thanks Deanna!
The coconut was one of the best places we have ever stayed at on the beach. The views were incredible! Windows everywhere made it feel like you were still on the beach, even when you were in the living room. The kitchen was fantastic. It had plenty of room and counter space. The bedrooms were all great, and they had their own bathrooms too. The cleanliness was top notch. It was just a relief to move in and not have to do anything but enjoy yourself.
The Coconut was awesome!!
Wake up looking at the ocean. Step out the door & be at the ocean.
The Coconut is The Best
This isn't our first time at the Coconut, but each time we have had excellent weather and a beautiful scene just outside the window. Open the blinds first thing in the morning and watch the waves as you sit at breakfast. Then that first cup of coffee watching the sun rise, nothing like it in the world. The beach, people you meet and talk with, so many different stories to share. We have been very blessed to have great neighbors staying in the condo called The Lime. All in all, if your looking for a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation, this is well worth your time. You won't be disappointed. Deanna is there at any moment you may have any questions, and she will take care of any problems that you might have, to include figuring out the remote control for the TV. (LOL) We will continue to book our beach vacations with the Coconut in the future.
Coconuts for Topsail!!
The property was wonderful and provided the perfect setting for our family to celebrate Fathers Day and our wedding anniversary. We have come to Topsail for many years and this is a great place to stay!!
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.
