  • GOOD

    "My family and I stayed in Merlin's Magic mid July. If I leave a review, I try to be as honest as possible so that the next new renter will not be surprised. In Merlin's Magic, the kitchen and dining area are spacious, which is nice. The upstairs bedroom is very hot during the day which made it very difficult to stay upstairs during the day. With the AC running all day, it cooled off at night. I wish I had known this beforehand. The oscillating fan upstairs was broken. However, the owners immediately told us to purchase a new one and they would reimburse us. The 2 downstairs bedrooms were sufficient. It was nice and cool during the day and at night downstairs. The location is great with a short walk to the beach. The furniture needs to be updated and they need new linens for the beds. Flat screen tv in living room. Old style tv in one bedroom downstairs and in upstairs bedroom. No tv in 2nd bedroom downstairs. The owners are great and do all they can to accommodate your needs. Overall we had a great time. Love the island and will definitely visit again. If you don't mind the fact that this place needs a little updating, then its' the one for you!"

  • Perfect beach rental with gorgeous views

    "This beautiful property was perfect for our family of 9. We were all able to have our own space, yet gather in the open kitchen/family room most of the time. The kitchen was well-stocked for our many meals at the house. Having a high chair and pack-n-play already at the house was super convenient. Every room was comfortable and decorated perfectly with real attention to detail. The views from the balconies were stunning and unobstructed. One night we sat outside and watched a beautiful, massive storm rolling in. The property is directly across the small street from the beach. Even with kids and tons of stuff it takes only 2 minutes to be on the beach. The elevator was extremely helpful with loading in and out. Robin was a pleasure to work with and was always available to answer any questions. Our family made wonderful memories here."

  • Quirky and rustic, an excellent hideaway on the water.

    "My wife and I enjoyed every minute at the Cozy Waterfront Cabin. Entering the house you're met with an array of awesome and quirky decorations from all over the world. It was very clean, cool (AC works very well), very homey, and provided all that we needed. We brought our kayaks and fishing gear, launched the kayaks from the backyard and fished the ICW. We even got to paddle with dolphins in the main channel. The location was great, close by to restaurants, bars, and the beach. We'll be sure to stay again next time we visit Topsail."

  • Beautiful home - great vacation!

    "The Beach House was exactly as it was presented to be - maybe even better. We have stayed in other houses on Topsail Island but none were as well kept, clean and comfortable as The Beach House. Having clean linens, a complete kitchen, the foosball table, comfortable beds and all the comforts of home made our stay as enjoyable as we hoped it would be. Our grandchildren loved the foosball table, the pool and of course, the ocean just steps away. Thank you to Shirley who graciously opened this lovely home for our enjoyment. She is a wonderful host."
