  • Exceptional choice for a beach house rental

    "As a luxury vacation home owner who also rents, I can be somewhat "picky" when it comes to choosing a vacation home for my family. I think my opinion may perhaps matter more than some. Idyll by the Sea is certainly the finest beach house I have ever rented. Exceptionally well-equipped, in fact stunningly well equipped, the house is likely your best choice in the area for a large, luxury rental. Beautifully situated directly on the beach, Idyll is well laid out, lovingly maintained, and perfect in virtually every way. Most importantly, you may rest assured the house is not only as good as advertised, but even better than you expect when you arrive. I strongly suggest a visit to their website prior to making your decision. A VRBO ad can only go so far in showing a house's features. Theirs is a comprehensive website well worth the visit. The owner is very helpful, easy to work with and a font of good information. I have, literally, not a single complaint about my stay at Idyll by the Sea, and plan to return."

  • Perfect vacation place

    "We loved the house. It was perfect for our large family. So close to the beach and to the places we wanted to visit as well. Chris was available when we needed him on a dime. We cooked in pretty much our entire visit and you all had everything in the kitchen that was needed to make our meals. I would highly recommend your house for any vacationers."

  • Best Family Beach Vacation Home!

    "Our family of 9; seven adults and two toddlers, spent a week in September in this wonderful home. Communication with Cheryl from beginning to end was flawless. She goes out of her way to make your experience special. The home is large, well-appointed, with all the necessities (in fact, I over-packed!). We did order our linens from Sunsational Rentals, and they were waiting for us upon arrival. There were plenty of dish towels, blankets, etc. With everyone having their own space/room, we never felt cramped or on top of one another. I did bring a baby gate to keep the littles from wandering near the staircases. The home is very clean and well-cared for, we treat rentals as we would our own home...and this could easily be considered home. The walk to the beach was easy; we did bring our own collapsible wagon as Cheryl had told us that the home's wagon had bit the dust. The beach chairs and boogie boards are provided. We grilled out most every night. Evenings were spent on the deck, listening to the waves and watching the sky. You can also sit in the screened-in porch and get a different vibe from the sunset over the Intrascostal area. We have vacationed in North Topsail before; but with littles this was a different type of vacation. We did go to the Seaview Pier; the food is mediocre, but walking out on the pier is a necessity ($1.00 a person). We enjoy going into Surf City and Topsail Beach for shops and occasional lunch. The island has plenty of playgrounds that our grandsons loved. A short walk from the house to the Firehouse enabled the older grandson to sit in and 'drive' a firetruck. All of us agreed that we would love to come back here!"
