About Barry and Shelley Mitzner

Veterinarian of 40 years living in South Florida but would love to eventually move to North Carolina. It's a priority for us to keep the house as nice and maintained as if we ourselves were living there.

Barry and Shelley Mitzner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Barry and Shelley Mitzner chose Topsail Island

Very laid back area away from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach and the Outer Banks. Friendly folks, it's 'Mayberry by the Sea'

What makes this cottage unique

We love It because it gives us a chance to get away from the frenetic pace and traffic in the big city. Everyone you meet is so nice and friendly. Common courtesy is complimentary on Topsail Island. The beaches are clean and unspoiled with plenty of open space. Restaurants are almost all family owned businesses who truly care about pleasing their customers. If you want more restaurants and shopping, Wilmington and Jacksonville, NC are barely 45 minutes away.

Perfect Location, great enviornment for family !

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in many beach vacation rentals over the years, and have had a variety of experiences. This house was great and we had an excellent vacation!

The proximity to the beach access was a huge advantage, as it was about a 3 minute walk from sand to the door.

When we arrived, it was clean and check-in was the easiest I have ever seen. We literally just drove up to the check in booth at the rental office and they had everything ready to go.

The house itself was very well equipped with everything we needed. The option to sign in to our netflix account was great, having laundry facilities was wonderful and we found that the kitchen had everything we needed for the week in order to cook some.

I loved being able to bring my dog on vacation with us and appreciate any rentals that allow that to happen. Surf City/Topsail beach is an ideal vacation location for families, and especially ones with dogs, as you are allowed to walk your dog on the beach as long as you clean up...and I never once saw anyone NOT clean up after their pet. A huge plus! The island has everything you need and some great restaurants, but if you go across the bridge there are plenty of more options...especially for grocery shopping.

Overall, this rental fit all of our needs and was exactly as advertised. Thank you for a great stay!

Wonderful two weeks at Conched Out!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing two weeks at the beach. The house is steps from the Ocean. In addition we were able to bring our 'fur babies' who loved running in the sand and surf. We spent many evenings on the front deck enjoying the ocean breeze. We will definitely be back. Thanks!

Really enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

This little three bedroom beach house was a great choice for a small getaway for the four of us that went. Really enjoyed the location and the deck/hammock. The house used the space very well and it was very welcoming and cozy

Wonderful getaway cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our son who is a Marine at nearby Camp LeJeune and the house is wonderful. Not too big but yet big enough. The kitchen was excellent and I cooked and baked for 4 days for my family. The beach is a block away just over the dunes. I highly recommend this rental.

Cozy home by shore

  • 5 of 5

This house was so awesome! First and foremost, the owner is so sweet and helpful! And the rental company is great too. I cannot say enough about both!! The house was perfect. Close to the beach access and even in August the beach was NOT crowded at all. The area was quiet, but close to lots of great shopping. There is a cupcake shop around the corner (a magnet on the fridge gives the location) that is just delicious! And for a unique shopping experience check out Bumble Bee. If you are on the fence, just go for it and STAY HERE!!!

Conched Out for a WHOLE week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Conched Out!! The house was no less and no more than what we needed for our stay. Each couple had their own bathroom and the kitchen was big enough for all of us! The home was nicely updated and comfortable with the deck seeing the most use!! The access to the beach was super close!! The home is situated just far enough away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough that it wasn't a chore to run down to the pier or the store!! One draw back was the construction going on at the lot next door. The construction crew was pretty quiet, so we did not feel that they imposed on our peace and quiet at all. I will definitely recommend the house for any family vacation! We are planning to come back soon!
