About the Property

Sandie's Sand Castle is a large, 2 bed, 2 bath condo with spectacular Ocean View

Welcome to Sandie's Sand Castle! Although a quiet peaceful beach, there is much to do. Besides the norm of beach fun, shopping and food.
For the golf lover… North Shore Golf Club- a 4 star rated club in Golf Digest, is just a mare 6 miles away in Sneads Ferry. It is open to the public, not only for a round of golf. They will also host your wedding as well as other special event ceremonies. Check out their website! If North Shore does not appeal to you... There are several other courses within a 20 minute drive.

The Belle of Topsail, which docks in Surf City (about 20 minutes away), is a 55 foot replica of an 1880’s turn of the century riverboat. Captained by, Captain David Luther. They offer everything from a simple sunset cruise to a Pirate themed dinner, to corporate events and weddings. Lots of fun for young and old.

North Topsail Beach is well known for being a turtle sanctuary. An educational and fun thing for the kids, would be to visit the turtle hospital in Surf city. It is a non profit and all the workers there are volunteers. For the small admission price- you will learn a lot and realize the importance of not littering on the beach.


A fun day trip would be to visit 1 of the beautiful N.C. Aquariums… Past Wilmington at Fort Fisher in Kure Beach, about 61 miles to the South. Or head in the other direction, towards the Crystal Coast of Atlantic Beach. About 65 miles to Pine Knoll Shores. You can’t go wrong at either of these destinations!

Jacksonville is a bit closer to North Topsail then Wilmington, NC. It boasts all your favorite store 's, your home town most likely has. Such as Kohl's, Dick's Sporting Goods, Best Buy, Bed, Bath and Beyond and the list goes on. There are 2 movie theaters featuring the latest movies. Carmike 16 on Western Blvd- I have personally attended and found it to be very nice with up to date seating, a clean and family friendly atmosphere. Also on Western Blvd- many chain restaurants, a variety to fit any budget , a few yogurts shops, and a nice mall if you just want to browse.

This will be my 2nd season on VRBO… I would like to thank all my wonderful guests for booking with me in 2015 and taking such wonderful care of my Sand Castle! I welcome your return. Too all my new comers... I bought my condo in December of 2013. It is a 2nd floor oceanfront condo unit at Shipwatch Villas. It has a pool and beautiful ocean view, and is only steps to the beach. As you enter Sandie’s Sand Castle… You will be greeted by a warm and inviting beach décor. You will immediately feel that this is your beach home! That is my hope... The 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is a clean, spacious 1220 square feet. Furnishing’s in the living and dining room are new in 2015. The living area features a queen sleeper sofa and matching love-seat, a comfy swivel rocker chair. A new 42 inch flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, along with internet and WIFI. A small corner bistro set completes the room. The dining room has a table that seats 6 as well as a set of barstools at the counter area. Your kitchen is well equipped… The stainless steel fridge has an icemaker and water dispenser. If there is something this kitchen is missing… Let me know! Both bedrooms feature new queen mattresses in 2015 and quality linens, pillows, blankets, etc. on all the beds. The master bedroom also has a flat screen TV, with cable and a DVD player.

Sandie’s Sand Castle has been updated to include in 2015, a new hot water heater, completely new master bath, all new Jeld-Wen windows and both sliding glass doors, new washer, new light fixtures and ceiling fans, new quality laminate wood flooring (carpet in bedrooms), and fresh paint and hardware. 2016, will feature new carpet and furnishings on the outside patio. Along with some minor cosmetic changes that have enhanced the look of my Sand Castle.

The property itself is well taken care of… There are 2 elevators, accessed by a ramp to the 1st floor. There are also several sets of staircases, for your convenience. The pool area is meticulously kept. Shipwatch HOA’s do not allow pets (except for owners). Every guest gets 6 pool passes and 2 car parking passes! There are no exceptions! There are no boats or RV’s allowed in the parking lot! A $50.00 fee will be charged to me and therefore charged to you if any of the passes are lost or not returned.
I hope you will visit my Sand Castle and make it your Castle for your stay!
Thank you for your interest,
Sandie

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: As you have probably figured out by now... My name is Sandie and my sidekick's name is JJ. As a little girl, growing up in Baltimore. Ocean City Md., was just a 3 hour car ride away. I always loved the beach, with a dream of someday, living there. While that's not possible right now... I am just a hair away from that same 3 hour car ride to my little peace of heaven. I live in Raleigh, NC. I Bought my unit December of 2013. I have worked hard to make it a place, I hate to leave when that Sunday night rolls around. It is my Sand Castle and I hope you will consider it yours during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose North Topsail Beach, NC, USA:
I bought on Topsail Island because it is a quiet beach. Many times through the years I have traveled to Myrtle Beach. While it is great for lots and lots to do. I just wanted to enjoy a more peaceful quiet environment. I choose this property at Shipwatch... Not only for the Beautiful Ocean Front View, But because it is a well kept property. The elevator is a definite plus and the pool area is scenic and also well taken care of.
