About the property

4 bedroom, 3 1/2 baths, hot/cold outside shower, beds for 8, modern amenities

DO NOT RENT THIS HOME… if you don’t like panoramic views from Surf City beach to Topsail Island sound. This 3 bedroom 3.5 bathroom end unit offers all the comfort and amenities of home combined with the best of island living. Pour yourself a drink and keep an eye on the action at the in-ground pool, the beach or the playground from both of the wraparound decks. Each bedroom offers its own private bathroom, upgraded bedding, ceiling fans, and modern flat panel televisions with over 200 channels of entertainment. After waking up to the beautiful ocean views, head up stairs to the open kitchen washed in natural sunlight, and continue your viewing pleasure as you brew yourself a cup of gourmet coffee in the new Keurig brewer. This unique corner unit is the only townhome in Summerwinds to offer wrap around decks with unobstructed views of the beach, the swimming pool and the community playground. All just steps away from your covered carport. And when the activity outside becomes too much, rinse off in the outdoor hot and cold shower and then relax in one of the two living areas and watch your favorite YouTube, NetFlix, VuDu videos and more from the “smart” WiFi enabled flat screen TV. The bonus loft offers the same gorgeous ocean views, a card table to play any games on, plus a trundle bed for extra sleeping options. Be among the first to rent this new to the rental market, updated home. From sunrise to sunset this home offers everything you want in a vacation rental; views, views, views.

News Alert! I have decided to manage this home myself. No more middle man and no more realtor booking fees.

During early and late peak season, we try to book weekly rentals only (Saturday - Saturday). However, if at the last minute the house is not rented we will rent for a minimum of four nights. Cleaning is included in the rate. Linens are only included for peak season weekly (Sat-Sat) rentals. If your stay is less than a week you will need to bring linens or rent them.

About Victoria and Sean Donahue

We love Surf City! Growing up in NC I spent many summers vacationing in Surf City. We love the quaint feel of the island but also love the convenience of shopping, dining, and short drive to Wilmington. It is just a beautiful beach and such a nice beach community. We have many great family memories here and we know you will too.

Victoria and Sean Donahue purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Victoria and Sean Donahue chose Surf City

Once you arrive at Summerwinds, you will know immediately why we invested in this property. Light and airy throughout. Tons of natural sunlight. Views throughout the townhome are stunning. I can't say enough about the views. There are 2 decks for relaxing and watching the dolphins. Very modern and clean. The beach is very convenient. We know how important this is with kids! Summerwinds is our dream come true.

What makes this townhome unique

Every bedroom has it's own bath. The loft provides sleeping for 2 more guest. The pool area is visible from the deck as well as a playground just across the quiet street. Great for the entire family. Granite counter tops in kitchen. Modern and very comfortable. Dedicate high speed WiFi exclusive to this home. Truly a home away from home.

This is the perfect spot for families to spend their vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the location of a Summer Winds perfect, but the owner, Sean, went above and beyond to fix a problem we had! We enjoyed our breakfast every morning on the upper deck while watching the tide roll in. Stunning views!! The condo itself is well maintained and was the perfect size for us and our 5 teens. We are looking forward to returning to this same spot next year!!

Fabulous views from deck, pool just steps away, private access to beach, wonderful game room loft for family game time, multi level layout with ensuite for each bedroom is the best set up I’ve seen. Great, stocked kitchen with appliances that work great & I never wanted for a pan or cooking tool as they were all there. Sean was a pleasure to work with and responds very quickly to any questions you might have. While it was an excellent spot for family, I thought it would also be perfect for a girl’s trip. Thanks so much for the hospitality, we would love to return!

Great Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the set up of the house, and the décor was really pretty and perfect for a beach property. We enjoyed the views from the deck every morning and evening, and the short walk to the beach was ideal. The actual beach is gorgeous, the water was warm and we were lucky to have perfect weather everyday!

It was great! Has everything you need. Very clean! Great for kids ! Because of playground and pool.

  • 5 of 5

All around great! Plenty of room, plenty bathrooms, decks are wonderful! Big family can spread out .Best house at the beach I have been in! The best thing is the closed in shower with warm water so you can get the sand off before you go in and your shower too! Most places just have cold water to wash off the sand.

Topsail is a small island. You will feel like you are very far away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. However, it is conveniently located 30 miles from Wilmington, NC. Also, there are 2 large grocery stores about 10 minutes down the road. As well as many restaurants on the island ranging from beachy casual to fine dining.
