About Deanna

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.

The beach house was amazing

  • 5 of 5

The coconut was above and beyond our expectations. Loved morning and evening walks on the beach. Even got to see ghost crabs making holes in the sand. Would highly recommend this Home and will be back again soon! Thanks Deanna

Perfect Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Cocunut was wonderful. Our experience from the start of booking until our final departure was excellent. This is one not to be missed. The house feels so much like home with the large spacious kitchen and living area. The house was very clean actually much cleaner than other properties we have encountered. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans and anything you need to cook up a fresh catch or just enjoy a pizza from out while relaxing on the decks. There is plenty of beach to enjoy for to enjoy. The owner was very attentive, quick to respond to any questions and was so pleasant to work with. We are already planning our next stay with her. Don't miss this gem of a property

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Love the location and the privacy of the beach. The house is nicely decorated, well stocked and the beds are awesome. Absolutely hate having to walk through someone's bedroom to get to the beach. There needs to be additional access from the living area deck.

Great house, great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week! Would have given a 5 star review, but the only beach access is through one of the bed rooms, other than that a perfect house on a great section of beach!
