About Thelma Ascanio

My wife, Thelma and I just moved back to NC, where I was born and spend my younger years.I lived in NY/NJ for several years and then moved to VA and lived there for 38 years. But I always came back to NC for different reasons and every time that I came it was like I never left. So finally I retire and my wife and I decided to build a new house in NC. We live close by Topsail Beach. We love it here!

There so many things to do that we always have our schedule full of fun activities.

Thelma Ascanio purchased this house in 2007

Vacation rental house wanna be.

  • 1 of 5

The beach was wonderful, and the weather was good. This house on the other hand was not so much. We have been vacationing at Topsail Island for close to 40 years having utilizing rental houses from many different sources. This is our "family" vacation where our now adult children bring their children to the same beach they enjoyed so much when they were young. Some travelling as far as from Connecticut. This house was a big disappointment. House was dirty. Handrails for the interior stairs was all sticky, carpeting on the interior stairs was very dirty. Cold air returns were covered in lint, making us wonder when the last time an air filter was changed. Tile on the lower level hallway was broken and coming apart. We were always fearful of the little feet walking on it. The kitchen furnishings ie: silverware, cooking utensils, and pots and pans were the finest available from Big Lots or Dollar General. Coffee maker quit working on the second day. Handle to the refrigerator was broken off. Microwave oven was missing parts. None of the smoke detectors were in working order. Mattresses were in poor condition with some them having springs poking through. Shower curtain rods would not stay up and curtain liners were in poor shape. Why would you have a house that could potentially sleep eight or more people and have only two "good" chairs on the deck? It had a couple of cheap plastic chairs, but some of them were broken. It was very disappointing to not be able to enjoy the deck in the evening with multiple family members due to the lack of adequate seating. The house did have "new" decking on the upper level. But, upon close examination, it was like the rest of the other noticeable repairs around the place, done as cheaply as possible. On Tuesday our neighbors from across the street pointed out to us that the cover for an attic ventilator was missing, exposing the fan motor to the elements and letting rain into the attic area. I immediately emailed the contact person for this property reporting this condition. She called me back the next day and told me that she would have their handyman out there the next day. No sign of anyone ever showing up, and went the rest of the week with a hole in the roof. We are not extravagant people with unrealistic expectations from a rental beach property. All that we really ask for is a place that is clean, safe, properly furnished, and in good working condition.

Owner's Response: Hi Mr and Mrs Sellers, The cover for the attic fan was replace on Saturday after you left. I didn't like to have people working at the house when you were there. Sorry about the coffee pot not working, if you tell me I will bring a new one to the house. I will show your review to the lady who does the cleaning of the house, so she can improve her work. We replace the refrigerator handle twice every summer, I don't know why but it break pretty often. We just put a new one. Sorry about your disappointment with the house, it was not our intention to ruin your vacation. Thank you, Thelma Ascanio

Excellent property, location and experience!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time here! It was our first time renting anything like this so we were a bit nervous. But we had an absolute blast! The location on the beach was incredible, it didn't seem too crowded, the locals were very friendly and it was very family-friendly as we came with 5 kiddos in tow. The kitchen was well-stocked and the sheets and towels were plentiful. The top deck was recently replaced and it is awesome. It was very sturdy! A light sanding of the raw wood may be helpful though.

If I HAD to pick any negatives or things that I would maybe change, here are the minors we came up with (to help others out as reviews are so helpful for us)!

- The "upstairs" or main living quarters has a large table and chairs that fits a large family like us. However, the chairs have wheels...and since the sleeping quarters are below the main living area, any activity with any early risers with those chairs is an alarm clock to those who may still be sleeping below. I wish I could say you get used to it, but you just don't.

-The showers and tubs are a bit rusty and old. It would help to have a few pieces or parts replaced. It would make a world of difference.

-The view of the ocean from the main living level is absolutely spectacular. But a portion of the main patio window looking out over this view has a broken seal so it is very fuzzy and foggy. You can't see out of it. It would be awesome if that was replaced.

But overall, we were so happy with this place. Everything that was advertised was delivered. No surprises!! And it fit our large family with room to spare! Can't wait to go back!! You won't be disappointed!

Terrific Vacation Home on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we had! This house was perfect for us. We wanted to be close to the beach and you couldn't be any closer. Walk down the steps from the deck and your feet are in the sand, nice soft, smooth sand I might add. We have 4 kids ages 12 to 3 and they loved it. Easy and convenient to go back to the house to get anything you need or take a nap and get back to the beach. No big crowds on the beach, just the folks from the houses next to you. Kids made new friends everyday, everyone was very friendly. Can't say enough about the location.

The property was great as well. Everything was as advertised. A/C worked great to keep it cool on some warm afternoons. Everything we needed in the kitchen. Plenty of towels and liens provided. We used the washer and dryer a lot with 4 kids going back and forth to the beach. The only issue we had was with the internet service and I contacted the property owner and she dealt with it promptly as well as she could. The internet is satellite internet and it is just not a great provider. The service was pretty spotty, worked well at times and almost not at all at others but I think that is just the nature of satellite internet and is not a knock on the property. They are doing what they can to get internet service for renters. Cell service was great, so mobile data was available all the time. The property was clean and well maintained, we would love to stay there again in the future and would suggest it to family and friends or anyone looking for a great beach stay in this area.

A great fit for families

  • 4 of 5

This property is the perfect location for watching ocean sunrises and soundside sunsets. The open living area worked well for our family -- plenty of room to play games. The owner was very responsive when I contacted her on Sunday afternoon about the sporadic internet service.

We cooked most of our meals, and found that the kitchen knives weren't sharp and the teflon skillets were quite scratched up, but everything else was just what we expected. The floor plan was well thought out. I was especially impressed to find wall-mounted hair dryers in the downstairs bathrooms.

Topsail Island is a very nice and quiet community. The house is located on the beach, just a few steps down and you are on the dunes. From the top floor you can see the ocean and the inter coastal waterway at the same time. The Island is full of beautiful shops and very good restaurants. Also there is a good selection of grocery stores and fresh sea food markets just in case you like to cook at home.

In the morning you can enjoy the breath taking sunrise and in the evening the sunset. Nice beach to walk, swim, surf or just relax reading a book.

The house have 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the bottom floor, the top floor is the living area with the full equipped kitchen and another full bath. The bottom floor have a nice cover porch facing the beach with a swing. The top floor have a big uncovered porch facing the beach and a balcony of the kitchen facing the inter coastal waterway.

Just 40 min from Wilmington, NC, where you have numerous fun activities and very good dining.
