About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

A comfortable beach house duplex with three and a half baths is located on beautiful Stump Sound at North Topsail Beach, North Carolina. Public beach access is 500 feet away. A few steps over the dunes and you are on some of the best, cleanest, least populated beaches on Topsail Island; great for swimming, surfing, fishing, and miles of beach for bicycle riding and walking.

The private dock is a perfect entry spot for sea kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, oystering, crabbing, or reading a book under the shade of the Live Oak tree. Two decks offer amazing views of sunsets over the marsh and the inland waterway.

Sounds Good is only moments from the causeway to the mainland and historic Snead's Ferry fishing village. Fresh catch of the day is available at a local seafood market in Surf City or Sneads Ferry and at some of the best seafood restaurants in the area.

This large duplex offers a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, central heat/air, two color TVs, DVD and VHS players, Wi-Fi, dishwasher, and microwave. No pets, no smoking. See owner's Web page in the links for more information section for additional photos.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in Topsail. This was a last minute rental and the owner was very accommodating. He responded quickly to all of our questions. The home was very clean and spacious for two adults and three teenagers. The kitchen was well equipped. Being sound side was great for our family for fishing and crabbing. ( crab pots were available for use at the home) The beach acccess was a short easy walk. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this rental to friends and family. Wonderful rental and overall great family vacation.

Your family are most welcome to return to Sounds Good for your future vacation. Louis

We had a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year vacationing at Sounds Good. We enjoy the dock on the sound for kayaking and catching crab for low country boils. Easy access to the beach is a short walk, or drive, as parking is available if you need to bring a canopy, etc. We love the quiet, never crowded, area of North Topsail. Grocery stores, fresh seafood and several restaurant are all within short driving distance. The owners are incredibly nice folks, so easy to book our vacations with. This beach home is reasonably priced and has everything that we want, so we keep coming back!

Relaxing week at Sounds Good

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. It felt like a home away from home. The beach access was convenient and having a private dock on the waterway side was a bonus. We look forward to returning one day. The owner was very responsive to questions and easy to work with.
