About the Owner

We are from Chapel Hill , NC. Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina! This is our second year on VRBO. For the past 11 years, we have had full occupancy. We love Surf City and we know you will too. When we are at the beach, we usually walk the dog and drink our morning coffee out on the beach. The guys try to get out early and surf fish or play golf. The beach is so close, we go and come as we please throughout the day. The kids walk along the beach or ride bikes into town to eat. Frequently, wel will have pizza delivered out to the beach. Sometimes they will catch a vollyball game on the beach or play basketball at the other park area near the center of town. In the evening, if no one has caught fish, we usually go pick out something from the local seafood market. Surf City also has a wide assortment of restaurants which are good when we don't want to cook. We usually end up on the deck or visiting out on the beach after dinner.

Island time

  • 5 of 5
From the time we walked in the door we felt so at easy. Everything we would need was there except food of course. Downstairs for the young people and upstairs for me. Decks top and bottom for sitting outside and enjoying the ocean and watching the Pelicans fly by.
Just a little walk to the beach and the house had chairs and other things to take to the beach provided for us.
We are looking forward to booking this house for our next beach trip.
The house is not located where there is lots of people on the beach which we loved. So peaceful with friendly people around us, but not far from great restaurants and great boutiques.
It was wonderful preparing our meals and eating all while enjoying the ocean view and hearing the ocean.

A great place to relax and unwind with the entire family

Nice cottage in a wonderful spot on Topsail Island. Very easy to leave cares behind here. So glad I was able to take my dogs and include my parents in this great getaway. We really appreciated the check in time, the towels and linens and the TV/WIFI setup. Can't wait to go back to the Mauve Box!

Best VRBO !

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our visit to Surf City and staying at "Mauve Box". This is the third time I have rented from VRBO and by far the best. Owner was very easy to contact and attentative to details. We always enjoy visiting the Turtle Hospital and walking the beach looking for turtle nest.

Best location!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first family vacation with all the kids and grand kids, we couldn't have picked a better house to accommodate everyone. Very comfortable for 8 adults and 2 children. We had a few minor issues that the owner resolved in a timely/courteous manner. The location is great for beach/fishing lovers.

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a terrific week here the last week of May. The house was exactly as described. Linda (the owner) was helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. We had 6 adults and 3 children in our group and plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, dishes, knives, etc. The Boogie boards were a real hit with our grandsons. Everything was clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed the beach and having access so close (about 3 minutes from house to my beach towel :) The beachg was clean and not at all crowded and I loved that. There is grocery shopping about 2-1/2 miles from the house (Walmart Marketplace, Food Lion). Just don't try to go shopping early - most place don't open until 8 or 9 a.m. We bought some fresh shrimp and fish from the Surf City Crab Seafood Market - very friendly staff. Nice guy showed the grandsons all the fresh fish in the coolers. Great place for a family vacation. There are a lot of stairs to navigate between floors, so not the best choice for those who have physical disabilities that limit walking and climbing stairs. Overall, we had a great time!

Perfect Beach Trip for Whole Family!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from spending the week at this beach property. We had a wonderful, relaxing fun-filled week. There was room enough to accommodate our family of 7 adults and 4 children. It was conveniently located to the public beach access as well as eating and shopping locations! We were able to bring along Elvis, our family shih Tzu which eliminated the need to arrange for pet sitting services and he enjoyed the trip as well. Also received my deposit in the mail today, only three days after returning home. The owner was very easy to communicate with and quickly resolved any issues or answered any questions we had. Would definitely recommend this property for vacation accommodations!

From the Owner

We are the original owners of this cottage. We purchased the lot in 1994 and built the house 2 years later. Our children were quite young when we built the house and when they first saw the cottage, it was not what they expected. Our youngest said it looked like a big box on sticks!! Through the years, we have enjoyed our time spent together there and getting away from the craziness of living in a college town. We have found throughout the years when we do want to get away, we want to have everything we need waiting for us at the cottage such as towels, linen, beach chairs, boogie boards, kitchen items, paper goods, detergent and especially the cleaning. It makes a vacation so much more enjoyable when these details are taken care of! We try to take care of these details for you to make your vacation worry free.

From the Owner

The cottage is in a great location! We love being so close to the water and many activities. Many times when we are at the cottage, we never use our car. If we want to go into town, we walk or ride bikes. We love our 2 outdoor showers with dressing areas. The double decks are also really great. We have a large screen tv that can be seen from the large open kitchen, family room, dinng room. Guests love the stocked storage area with chairs and toys. Linens, towels and beach chair use are also included in the price.
