Recent Topsail Island reviews

  • Peaceful getaway

    "I loved the place! We had 2 adults and 4 kids (18/17/15/5) and we made the space work just fine. There were plenty of dishes and silverware for all of us. Having a washer and dryer was great!! The ocean and pool were very warm, which was nice because I hate being cold. The beach was never too crowed like other places. The apartment view was perfect with chairs included to sit out on the deck. If the kids were at the pool we could see them and get their attention if needed. We all had showers right after one another and never once ran out of hot water which was always amazing. It was nice to have cable for the youngest because he likes to watch TV. They rest of us didn't pay attention to it. Lorraine (the owner) is very easy to get a hold of and answered all my questions. I was very worried about booking and sending money and how everything works since this was my first family vacation on our own. If we go back. We also got to see a few dolphins from the balcony. I would recommend booking with her, if we come back I would stay at the same place again."

  • 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!"

  • The house was wonderful. Perfect location.

    "We loved the location of the house. Plenty of room for everyone and sufficient amenities. I did wish the outside shower worked but there was a hose available at the top of the stairs. The top floor doesn't really cool off even with the air conditioning turned down but the second floor bedrooms were very cool making it very comfortable for sleeping. We are definitely considering staying here again. Perfect location. We saw Dolphins, turtles being released and crabs. Fishing was good too."

  • Wonderful, Memorable Beach Vacation!

    "We arrived at the Pelican Palace and were pleased from the first view! It is charming on the outside and beautifully clean and decorated on the inside. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals (the dishwasher was even bigger than ours at home!) and a very organized pantry with laundry and extras. The views were absolutely to-die-for and we enjoyed being so close to the beach that our kids could run in and out and we could see and hear them. It was fun going to eat at Max's Pizza, Island Delight, & the Fractured Prune for hot, fresh donuts in the mornings. Our photographer daughter got some breath-taking shots of sunsets over the sound (within walking distance), too! There were little touches like great books to read (including children's books in the kid's rooms), a kayak!, boogie boards, sand toys, puzzles and games too. Everyone in our family - from the adults to all kids (ages 18, 16, 12, 9 & 7) enjoyed the trip and the house immensely! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your little piece of paradise :)"
