About Kim Draper/ Manager

In April 2015 the decision was made to jump in and make owning a home on Topsail Island a reality. For our childhood this was our family vacation, our only family vacation, every year. We all have such vivid memories of our summers here. During those years, our dad dreamed of owning a vacation home on Topsail. That dream was not fulfilled during his lifetime.

As adults, we have all lived in different places thoughout the country and have vacationed all around the world. Years ago, we began coming back to Surf City for family vacations. Just a couple of us at first with our kids, a couple of times a year. But once we all were back here together, it just seemed right and we felt we could make a dream a reality...our dad's dream.

We "found our way back"

Why Kim Draper/ Manager chose Surf City

This house is just the right size. It has so many extras loaded into a modest space. In the 60's and 70's we stayed in a small (and I do mean small) cottage that was less than a block away from the Surf City pier and sat on a dune. No pilings, just cinder-block and sand. That house was the right house then, and this is the right house now.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great stay at Seablings! We loved the proximity to the beach and spent most of our time there. The house itself is comfortable a great size for one family and beautifully decorated.

Because we came in the off season we provided our own linens. I felt knowing there wouldn't be dish or hand towels provided, as well as no properly sized garbage can bags, very little toilet paper and no paper towels would have been helpful, although most items we needed were easily purchased at nearby stores. And perhaps coming during the busy season would remedy that. It did not detract from our stay, just would have been helpful to know ahead of time to be able to bring what we would need.

Finally, we wanted an extra blanket in the room with the king sized bed but the only ones we could locate in the house seemed to have been used to protect the beds from pets and smelled and looked like they had not been cleaned afterwards. Not having pets ourselves, this was off-putting.

Overall, our time in this home was enjoyed and we would recommend it, especially to those with pets! :)

Cozy, family home, very convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for opening your home up for my family & I to enjoy! We enjoyed our quick weekend get away. It was my youngest daughter's birthday, she wanted a weekend beach trip. This was our first time to this beach. It was a nice change of pace. We all enjoyed the "island time"...

The house rental was cozy. It was perfect for a quick weekend getaway.

Short but sweet

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Kim and her siblings for opening your home! The house was immaculate, nicely decorated, and the perfect size for our needs. Was a relaxing setting to spend a couple of days with our Marine before he deployed. Though we spent most of our "free time" at the house, it was close to restaurants, stores and local watering holes. It was too foggy and rainy to spend much time on the beach, so listening to the waves and being able to walk there quickly when we wanted was a plus. We are definitely planning to be in touch as soon as we know when he'll be returning! Thanks again and Semper Fi

We are so glad the house was suitable for everyone. I look forward to hearing from you! Glad you enjoyed the island! Sharon , Kathy, Scott and Kim

The new facility is located just off the island and gives you an up close experience of the turtles on site. Check their Facebook page for upcoming events! You could be lucky enough to catch a sea turtle release during your stay. There is a Putt-Putt and Arcade located on the south end on the island in Topsail Beach. Play a round and then enjoy some ice cream on their music filled patio area. The city just finished a 9 hole Frisbee golf course. It is located just across the swing bridge off HWY 210.
