Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is the most beautiful house on Topsail! And it's right on the beach - not an 'ocean-view' a couple of blocks from the beach or across the street from the beach, or even a piano lot (with only a small strip that extends between the houses to the beach). Seas the Day is right on the beach and the house is gorgeous.

Now wait a minute...I bet you think I'm just saying that. Well look at what some of are guests have said (see the full comments below):

'The website does not do this house justice! It is gorgeous, and the views of the beach and water are amazing from every room. ' Bonnie from Va

'Seas the Day is one of the best vacation houses I have stayed in. ... You will not be disappointed if you rent this place' Norma Jean from Ohio

'I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a wonderful beach house that has one of the best vistas in Topsail.' Mark from Northern Va

'Loved that house!!!!!! oh my, the walk to the pier was wonderful and so pretty. the house was perfect and held my whole family! it was an awesome vacation! thank you so much! wonderful!' Jessica from Ohio

And it goes on. You will truly love your stay at Seas the Day.

Located just 1 mile south of the Surf City pier, you're close to all the activity, yet just far enough away to enjoy the tranquility that lives here also. As a matter of fact, you may note some of our guests jokingly refer to the 'Buddy's walk'. Buddy's is a bar/restaurant by the pier, which is a nice 1 mile walk on the beach. Some people, including my brother, myself and our two wives like to walk down to Buddy's at lunch time, watch the surfers by the pier, order oyster shooters, and... possibly a cerveza or two (that's Spanish for beer) and maybe a tequila shooter. Well, the walk back is now quite enjoyable. We often just come back, lay out a towel and catch some rays and a snooze. The Buddy's walk - a perfect way to spend a vacation day.

Do you like to bike or run? There is a bike shoulder on the main road the entire way from the north side of Surf City to the south tip of the island. The island is like 22 miles long, so you can get a good work out.

Recently I rode my bike to the south end, and the smell of Jasmin and ocean air was unbelievable. I stopped on the far south point of the island and walked around the beach on the undeveloped point. I then rode back to Topsail Beach city hall and said hi to the ladies who worked there. (They had kindly sent me an invitation to pay real estate tax in their city even though my house was in Surf City. I graciously declined :-) but they were very pleasant.) I then rode back to Surf City and promptly bought an ice cream cone at DQ just to make sure I hadn't burnt off too many calories.

Believe me, this place is fun.

And I haven't even told you about Giligan's, just before the bridge on the mainland side and it's hilarious karaoke nights, or about Sears Landing and its award winning clam chowder made with sherry, or Indigo Marsh - the best restaurant overlooking the sound that you will ever find. Oh, and how about the fresh fish market (I mean right off the boat) behind the Crab Pot where you can get shrimp, flounder, shark or whatever they have been catching and take it back and grill it at Seas the Day.

You can play 18 holes at Coastal Carolina's only four-star golf course, North Shore Golf and Ocean Club (as per Golf Digest).

Surf shops that make me wish I was 18 again, Andy's and Island Delights that serve 50's style burgers and malts, the Surf City Wine and Cheese Shop (I go in for the weekly wine tastings and just the great smell!), II Bouchaines, and on and on. You won't want to leave.

And I haven't even talked about surf fishing, kayaking, surfing, jet skiing and more (check out the ALL CAPS paragraph below to see my web site for MORE things to do with phone numbers, addresses, etc.)

Seas the Day is BEACH FRONT. It is not a piano lot, a view lot, or across the street from the ocean. It is direct OCEANFRONT property.


My teenage son once walked up the stairs to the living room and said 'This place just makes you smile!'


'We loved the outside shower, complete wtih room for dry clothes and towels! Very kid friendly, my 13-month-old niece could wander around and the gates kept her safe. Topsail itself is so peaceful. We went to the sound side a few times to fish, canoe, and take the baby swimming. We golfed, ran, sailed (you have very nice neighbors who invited us!), and fished from the surf (caught sharks, stingrays, and a few fish). Such a great house -- plenty of space, well decorated, and everything you need in the kitchen for eating in!' Bonnie VA

Jim Murray from GA agrees wholeheartedly:

'My sister and I are both recently retired school teachers. For over 25 years we have talked about renting a beach house on the North Carolina coast, big enough to house all of our families. ... This house was everything we had dreamed about. It was RIGHT ON THE WATER,...

'Setting on our porch, we could watch the sun rise each morning. In the evening we could drive to the end of the island and watch the sun sink into the ocean....I bought 5 kites and one day we all spent the day flying them. ... We enjoyed the secluded walks on the beach and the discovery of hundreds of sea shells. We saw dolphins swimming by several times. The only regret we had, was that we couldn't stay for another week.'

We have added a 42' FLAT SCREEN TV in the living room and NEW FLAT SCREEN TVs in the master and 2 queen bedrooms, and there is a large TV in the bunk beds room. Ill post pictures soon.

BEDROOM SETUP: Top floor: QB & Full Bath. (There is also a QSS but it's right in the middle of the living room); Middle floor: KB, QB, 2BB (i.e. 4 beds), and BB with 2 Full Baths. There is a deck on both floors and there is an enclosed outdoor shower on the deck of the middle floor. The bottom floor has 2 full car garage, grill, and storage space.

Incredible 5 months

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented Seas the Day for 5 months waiting for our house to be build. The months flew by and while I was excited to get settled in our new home, I was sad to leave Seas the Day. We were there over the holidays, my daughter and I made Halloween treats for her class, we decorated a tree for Christmas and made many lovely meals with the sliding door opened listening to the ocean.

Steve the owner is delightful to work with. He is very responsive. In the five months we were there, he replaced the dishwasher and the hot water heater. It's clear that he takes pride in the house.

The house is lovely. Views are amazing! Waking up to the sunrise coming up over the ocean is my favorite way to wake up. The house is well stocked. I also loved living on the island. Surf City is a cute little town, and there are a lot of hidden gems you just need to know where to look.

I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to get away.

Owner's Response: We loved having you and your daughter as our guests. Many of our winter guests are from Canada or the far northern parts of the US. We have a special monthly rate in the winter and people come down and find that Surf City is a delightful place and the local residents are very friendly. You're going to love living in coastal North Carolina.

Perfect Early Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I rented Seas the Day in mid-May, and it was perfect!! Our weather was wonderful and the house was even better in person. Steven was so great to work with, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. I would absolutely recommend Seas The Day to anyone looking for a great vacation home in a not-too-touristy area near Topsail. We are hoping to return again this year! Best part of the summer!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jill, a get away with girl friends is such a blast at the beach. My wife and her friends also did that at the beginning of May and they're still talking about the close bonding that occurred and they are planning to do it again. Please come back, we loved having you.

THE best house on the island- hands down!!!

  • 5 of 5
If I could give 10 stars- I would!! We've stayed here for the last 3 years and it is PERFECT!! One year we had 2 couples and a few grown (college age) children, the next 3 couples a some straggler grown children and anything in between. Seas the day accommodates any and everyone with space to spare. We absolutely love this house and wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island. The location is fabulous! -Away from everything but within walking distance. Steve is awesome to work with. He seems to be on top of any replacing and repairing as needed from storm issues or just plain wear and tear. The house is always inviting, clean, beautifully decorated/updated and the kitchen is always more than adequately equipped. The proximity the beach is fantastic as are the views from the deck. The outdoor shower is clean and a great use of space. So much so that the inside shower is very rarely used. This home is WELL worth the money and We will DEFINITELY be back as long as they'll have us!

Great Experience!!

  • 5 of 5
Only one word can sum up the experience of "SEAS the DAY"..."WOW". This was not our first time at Surf City, but definitely the best. This house has it all. The location with the view. Cleanliness and great decor. Wide open with plenty of space. Steve the owner was very accommodating and made the reservation and payment process easy. The whole adventure is one we would like to repeat. There is a special charm to Surf City in the off season, very laid back with a feeling of seclusion. Hospitality abounds from the local merchants appreciating your patronage during their slower time. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks Dan. We loved having you as our guest. We also love the off-season at Seas the Day. The island is quiet, the shop merchants are wonderful, and the ocean is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Annette, Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you had such a great vacation. We would love to welcome you back anytime!


From the Owner

We absolutely love Surf City. But Seas the Day is so beautiful itself. The colors seem to bring the outdoor yellows of the sun, the sky's blue, and the ocean's greens inside. This is a totally relaxing beach house. The ocean breezes, the salt air, and the wonderful people make this a great place to be.
