Overview

About the property

Three large bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Very child/family friendly.

Surf City is a tranquil, small beach town located in the heart of Topsail Island. Aside from its breath-taking beaches, this area offers charming shops, quaint restaurants, a nationally recognized sea turtle hospital, historic landmarks/museums, lucrative fishing , and so much more….

Sit back, relax, and let your busy life melt into the serene sunset from one of two sound-side decks. Smell the salty ocean air and hear the waves crashing along one of the most beautiful beaches on the East coast. This ocean and sound view house, with its clean, brightly-colored rooms and charming décor, will whisk you away to that peaceful escape you’ve been dreaming about…

With 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 3 levels, and almost 1700 square feet, there will be plenty of room for everyone. Upon arriving at the property, there is a large carport/driveway that can accommodate up to four vehicles. You will also notice the fully-enclosed, outdoor shower and fenced backyard. Upon entering via keyless entry, you step into a soothing blue-colored, ground-level foyer with stairs leading up to the second level.

The spacious master bedroom is located on the second level and has a king-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress, ceiling fan, two closets, a sound/sunset-view deck with rocking chairs, 40-inch flat panel TV, and a private full bathroom with dual vanity. Also on that level is a large bedroom with 2 sets of twin bunk beds, a queen-sized futon, a ceiling fan, a closet, flat panel TV with DVD player, and attached full bathroom. The second level also has a laundry area with a full-sized washer/dryer and iron & ironing board, and additional closet space.

The third level boasts a beautiful living/dining area with dining for 12, a 40-inch flat panel TV, a DVD & Blu-Ray player, two couches (one is a sleeper sofa), an over-sized chair, a work area/desk, and a large deck with table & chairs to enjoy all of those gorgeous sunset moments. The kitchen adjoins the living /dining area and is well-equipped with a dishwasher, garbage disposal, full oven/stove, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, electric griddle, hand mixer, blender, pots and pans of all sizes, steamer pot, plenty of dishware/glassware, and even plastic cups, utensils, etc… for your little ones. On that same level is a full bath and a third bedroom. This beautiful & spacious room has a queen-sized bed and comfortable, oversized chair that pulls out into a twin bed. There is also a flat panel TV, closet, & a small book shelf stocked with books for all ages.

Some additional amenities include a charcoal grill, outdoor/sand toys, pack-n-play, portable high chair, stool, baby gate, DVD’s, books, toys, games, puzzles, & free wi-fi.

With a perfect location within Surf City, just minutes from the Surf City pier, boat launch, fresh seafood market, grocery stores, shops, restaurants, and all that this amazing destination has to offer…..you might want to plan a return visit too! The beach access is two short blocks away, there is a sports bar/grill just down the road, and a church across the street. In addition, there are two coffee shops, an ice cream shop, two pizza places, a deli, and organic market within walking distance….definitely something for everyone!!!!

About Scott & Bridget Knouse

We started going to Topsail Island in 2007 and immediately fell in love with the area. We spent many years dreaming of the opportunity to own property on the island. It brings us great happiness that this dream is now a reality! We feel blessed to share our love of Topsail Island with you and give you a comfortable and clean home to stay in.

Scott & Bridget Knouse purchased this house in 2014

We take pride in this house and want other families to love it just as much as we do. Personal touches such as a bottle of wine upon arrival, cruiser bikes (with locks and children's helmets), toys, baby monitor, and much more allow the comforts of home to be present while enjoying your relaxing vacation. We are very accomodating and available to answer any questions or address any concerns. We truly want and hope that your time at our beach house is absolutely fabulous!!!!

Much Needed Down Time

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our visit to this peaceful getaway! Everything that we needed was here and the place was clean and comfy! Just a short walk to the beach and some great places to eat & shop. Best part was not having to leave our dogs behind. They enjoyed their stay as much as we did and took their first walk on the beach splashing in the ocean! :) The owners were very easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed to make some memories! A million thanks! We will be back for sure!

Wonderful house to rent with pets!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house for our week long beach trip. Bridget and her husband were very easy to work with. We had a small hiccup with the AC and they were very accommodating in getting it taken care of. If you are planning on bringing your pets on your vacation, this is the house to choose. The fenced in area behind the house is wonderful for dogs to play in. The house is in a great location and you can easily walk to the beach. If we go back to Surf City, we will always look into renting this house!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for our wedding reception for all of our out of town guests to have a place to stay. The home was beautiful, clean, and easily accommodated 11 people (ample parking too!). The location is perfect, walking distance to some of the islands best spots. Working with Bridget was a breeze, she was very responsive and the whole process was smooth. If we need a beach house at surf city again I would definitely rebook.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stumbled upon this property on Facebook when I noticed it was pet-friendly and am so glad I did. The house is immaculate and well stocked with whatever you may need. We had never stayed on Topsail and found it very relaxing and quiet. The house is in a great location to get to restaurants, shops and a short 2 block walk to the beach. The house is very comfortable and Bridget was a pleasure to deal with. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Weather was Frightful but We Had a Delightful TIme

  • 5 of 5

We've only been to Topsail a handful of times but really enjoy every time we go. This time we wanted to take a whole week to get away from the Raleigh life. This was the perfect place for our week. While the weather was not ideal for a week at the beach, the space of the house kept us from getting on each others' nerves.

The house is situated close to everything and is a quick walk to the beach and public access. The house is very clean and has that perfect beach home decor. We loved sitting on the back porch and watching the sun go down each evening.

We had two issues come up during our stay but Bridget and her husband were quick to make things right in a very timely manner. I don't think you will find better host! They want to be sure you are enjoying their place and it shows.

We would not hesitate to stay here again and have told our friends.
