About the property

Secluded 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Located On Kings Creek, Situated On 48 Acres

Next To Nature is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home nestled on 48 acres of open land. This private home is located at the end of a 1 mile gravel road and is situated on Kings Creek, which leads into the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), and offers gorgeous views of nature. The recently remodeled home has a cozy cottage feel and is inviting for the entire family, including your pets! Relax your mind and body sitting on the screened in porch or take out the kayaks for a serene morning activity. Bring your dog and enjoy the stillness of swimming in the "Blue Lagoon" (our crystal clear man made pond on the property). Next To Nature offers both a peaceful retreat and a fun-filled vacation, with Topsail Island only 9 miles away.

About Danny Baysden

My wife, Wanda and I, chose this property for the unique location and the topography of the land. This property was originally owned and built by a local family who still live close by. We would like to open our special place for others to enjoy.

Danny Baysden purchased this cottage in 2007

Awesome house with a short drive to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! It was a short drive to the beach and the blue lagoon was fabulous! The house is so neat and it’s nice being tucked away. They had floats, kayaks and a fire pit. We had a great time and we are definitely coming back next summer!

Really Peaceful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful piece of property Danny has here; a real hidden treasure. We used the kayaks and fished in the creek. We swam in the blue lagoon and my son said he loved it most because he didn't have to worry about crabs biting his toes or jelly fish stinging him. There was so much to watch from the porches. Being able to pack up the truck under the carport while it stormed was very convenient. We will most probably return. Thanks for the respite.

Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house and private property. The neighbor before you start up the road to the private property isn’t very nice at all. But other than his attitude it was wonderful. The blue lagoon is so relaxing and great for family vacation. We had a lot of rain during our stay but the screened in porch was wonderful. A place to relax and enjoy nature. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Photos don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been happier with the property or amenities. The best of both worlds, privacy, serenity and nature but just a short hop up the road to the beautiful beaches of Topsail. They really thought of everything, I've never felt so at home while on vacation and our puppies loved it too.

PERFECT family vacation rental home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this vacation rental was WONDERFUL!!! The private location was very peaceful. The home was very clean, well decorated and the kitchen was well equipped. We had everything we needed for a wonderful family vacation together!!! The icing on the cake was being able to have our dog with us. We were close to the beach and had fun there one day. The owner was wonderful to work with, his prompt communication to my questions before our arrival was impressive and the return of the rental deposit, was refunded before we arrived home. If you are looking for a clean, peaceful, rental home close to the beach, do yourself a favor and check this place out!!!! Do NOT be alarmed by the things you see on the road going back to the rental home, it WILL be worth it when you arrive at Next to Nature and unlock the door. One word of caution, the speed limit on the road is 10 mph, I did not see the signs and was going around 12 mph and someone stopped me and asked me to slow down. Just a word of advice to help you avoid a rather scary experience.
