Disclaimer: The children and I are blessed to share our home with you and we have been fortunate to have some excellent vacation renters. For those of you that have never rented through Vacation Rental By Owner, there are several areas that make it distinct from a hotel or resort rental which I won't list in detail. Suffice it to say, we get to share this home and the benefit of it "working" instead of sitting idle when it is not being used. You/renters get in return access to accommodations that can suit a large family, in a great location, and accommodations that have have more personalized benefits/service and privacy than a single solitary hotel room would afford. Please remind all of those in your party that this is a personal home for almost seven months a year and the intent of this rental is for a "family type" vacation and not a "party house." For this reason, we do not rent to parties who may intend the house to be for a family reunion, wedding, or graduation party. Additionally, we reserve right to limit the number of guests if we feel that the desired requested reservation and/or number of occupants, may not be consistent with our intended use for the house. Additionally, I or a representative is usually present or staying locally and check the house between each and every check-out and check-in by renters; therefore, please encourage those in your party to treat the home and belongings therein accordingly.
Thank you.

Playground a few minutes walk away.

My teenagers and preschooler enjoyed the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital and in Wilmington USS North Carolina, Battleship.

We enjoy eating at Corner Cupcakes, Sugar Island Bakery, Sears Landing, and New York Deli. For a special night out or couple date night I like Beauchaines 211.

Teens have been outfitted at 50 South Surf Shop and love spending time at the Quarter Moon Bookstore.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: Having lived near the beach most of my life, I am finally returning to Topsail Island as an owner after a 14 year absence. My three children (ages 16, 14, and 6), our five-year-old German shepherd and I love the beach and all the outdoor activities that one can do. In the last year alone, as a family, we have body-boarded, kayaked, canoed, “off trail” camped, ridden horses, hiked in the mountains, white water rafted, deep-sea fished, surf fished, rock climbed, rappelled and of course played any number of beach and regular sports. Recently, we changed “gears” and took our first full-family trip abroad and very much enjoyed a different cultural perspective through immersion and Old-World historical study. Managing this property was the start of now managing other properties and in general is my second career, having pursued the “terminal” PhD degree as a part of my “former” life as both an educator and school administrator. As a single mom, this career allows me the flexibility to home-school my children and the unique ability to teach them business aspects and life lessons from a hands-on approach outside the traditional classroom. As a result they are all a really big help with different areas of the property management and I am proud of the interest they have shown.

Why Surf City, NC, USA:
Terramar is fairly new for the beach area, built in 2005, and has everything that anyone would need including an elevator. This property was named Sandy Magnolia but their VRBO site was not allowed to be transferred, so we have a new VRBO number and a new name with the house being purchased by new owners. The location is attractive because of its proximity to town and playgrounds. Additionally, the children said it was an easy walk to the pier and ice cream!
