Why Dale and Carolyn Schramm chose Ocean City Beach
We bought our beach home after searching up and down Topsail Island, because of the incredible, unhindered views of the ocean and the uncrowded, pristine beaches. We have kept the house it in nearly-new condition, and make it available for rent a few weeks each year to help offset the expenses. Our family has made beach vacations a tradition for over 25 years. Once we saw this place, we decided to put down roots. We no longer care to go anywhere else, although our family has grown so large we need to rent an additional home when we're all at the beach together. Our beach is peaceful, serene, tranquil, beautiful and safe... just the way a fun , yet relaxing, vacation should be.
What makes this House unique
The first time we saw the ocean from the deck, when the house was being constructed, we thought "Wow!" It took our breath away! It was a clear, winter day and the sun glistened off the pure blue water. There were pelicans, cormorants and terns diving in a fish-feeding frenzy directly in front of us. Dolphins could be seen a bit further out in the water. It was amazing then, and it continues to amaze us year after year. The views and beach access are the most amazing things. As far as the house, we love the elevator, which is a huge benefit for any beachfront property, because there are always lots of stairs up to the beautiful view and living levels, and there are more enjoyable things to do during a vacation than to haul groceries and suitcases up and down stairs. We have a big family, so we enjoy having two dishwashers It ensures an easy cleanup after big meals. You'll love relaxing in the hammock on the second level deck or basking in the sun on the top deck. We have many fond memories around the campfire at the Lucky Leaf. Even the nighttime and moonlight strolls are magical at the beach at the Lucky Leaf.

North Topsail is a beautiful beach. Not crowded when we were there. Everything we needed was close.
The Lucky Leaf was perfect. Beautifully decorated and very clean. Kitchen very well stocked and large DR table. Decks comfortable and steps from the beach.Hope we will be back.
gorgeous home on the beach
My family had one the best vacations ever at this rental home RIGHT ON THE BEACH!!!!
We never needed to plan going places once we arrived because the beach took all our time.
The house was very clean and beautiful. While there we witnessed sea turtle eggs hatch 500 yards from our location on the beach. It was awesome!
Clean, stunning picturesque home!
This was truly our best NC beach vacation to date. The house was incredibly clean and exactly as pictured. Beach access was worth every penny and we did not miss having a pool (which historically we had rented houses with pools). A pool was totally unnecessary with the beach RIGHT THERE! We loved the kitchen and upper level set up. The house was spotless upon arrival and the owners were accessible and a breeze to work with -- we will absolutely stay here again. We enjoyed using the hammock on the lower deck. The house did have a lot of adirondack chairs and two large umbrellas. I do not recall if this was in the listing, but we used those as well as the chairs we rented. Outdoor showers made clean up a breeze. The home itself is very organized so that you can keep it clean and free of sand. The house is not in a particularly crowded area and we loved mostly having the beach all to ourselves. There is a wonderful farmers market down the road and plenty of amenities close by for dinner, groceries, activities. We found 51 (!!!) shark's teeth during our stay. They have some books, puzzles, games and sand toys. Plan to bring skewers for smores which our kids loved. Take time to read the guest book - it's a really sweet tribute to how many people have loved staying at Lucky Leaf. :)
Our group had 4 adults and 4 kids - and we cooked every single meal, which made the fridge/freeze VERY packed (almost to the point of unmanageable). So I think go in knowing that for larger groups, you may need to do a mid week grocery store run OR plan to eat out a bit. Truly a second fridge is the only thing that could have improved our stay - it was that perfect. We're already discussing booking for 2018!
We could not have had a more enjoyable week at Lucky Leaf. Our 4 grandchildren (ages 7-14) loved the bunk room and lived on the beach every moment the weather allowed. The house is beautifully appointed and maintained. Our best Topsail stay ever.
Perfect home for a family get-away!
The Lucky Leaf continues to be my family's choice for our summer beach get-together. It was very clean, well-appointed kitchen, comfortable beds, fabulous ocean views and accessibility, and owners are very responsive. We hope to stay again next summer!
The perfect end to our summer!
The property is incredibly well-maintained and very clean. Everything in the house is labeled and instructions are left for every question. The owners are very available and attentive, even texting to remind us of when to put the garbage out! The house feels like a real home, not a beach house. The views are spectacular and the surrounding beach is not crowded at all. It's only about 7 minutes from Surf City for things like groceries and restaurants. The elevator was a HUGE help moving in and out! We've been coming to Topsail Beach for 8 summers in a row, and this was far and away the best experience we've had! Can't wait to go back!!
The Carolina coastal islands and sounds provide a wealth of water and beach activities ranging from salt water and fresh water boating and fishing to surfing, parasailing and beach combing. The island is famous for turtle nesting sites (a turtle museum is located on the island), and hunting for ancient fossilized shark teeth is a favorite beach combing activities. The north and south ends of the island are great for nature walk. The beaches are clean and tranquil. There are abundant local restaurants. Jacksonville and Wilmington are close if more standard fare is desired. The Topsail area enjoys a mild climate that makes for ideal year-round weather and relatively warm surface and water temperatures that accommodate most any outdoor activity. The island enjoys some of the most pristine, uncrowded beaches along the east coast. The area boasts the greatest simple pleasures life has to offer. Here you will witness coastal wildlife flourishing in its natural environment. You will also likely enjoy some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets of your life. The island has bike/kayak rental stores, an arcade, souvenir shops, ice-cream and pizza parlors, public parks and playgrounds, sea turtle museum, and more! Jacksonville is a 35 minute drive and has shopping/movies. Wilmington is a 45 min drive & has a great downtown scene, river walk, NC Aquarium, museums, tours, nice mall, etc. The Island is accessible by an old-fashioned swing bridge and a modern high-rise bridge.
