Pharma Sea…it is just what the doctor ordered! Come experience the magic of Topsail Island! Fall is a wonderful time to experience all that the Island has to offer in the off season. The Island features many restaurants and some fun nightlife as well as its tranquil uncrowded beaches. This luxury town home is located in the Oceanfront community of Sea Star Village, approximately 2.5 miles from downtown Surf City.

This updated home boasts 3 levels of living space with a reverse floor plan. The ground floor features an entry foyer and a storage room for you traveling gear or bicycles. The beach is less than 150 yards away with two easy access points and the community features a private pool. There is an enclosed outside hot/cold shower at the rear of the home. Bed, Bath and Kitchen Linens are provided for your convenience. A gas grill is located on the ground level for your use for those vacation cookouts.

The middle bedroom features two twin beds and intracoastal waterway views from its windows. The third bedroom on this level features a queen bed and a private sundeck that offers intracoastal waterway views. A hall bath is shared for the middle and third bedrooms and the laundry facilities are also on this level. The third level of this home offers an open concept living space.

About the Owner

One of the owners is in the Pharmaceutical Industry, hence our homes name, and the other is a licensed Realtor.

The owners have been coming to Topsail Island for many years. Beginning in the late 1970s as a teenagers, and have always compared other beaches to Topsail Island. We found Topsail to be a sanctuary of peace and solemn for ourselves and had always wanted to own property at this lovely beach. After achieving this goal, we have opened our home for a limited amount of rentals per year to share this experience. We strive to maintain the level of quality amenities that we are offering to our guests and try to ensure that the home is well stocked. We hope that you will consider our home and make it a regular part of your vacation plans for years to come.

Thank you in advance for considering Pharma Sea as your Topsail Vacation Rental.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been traveling to Topsail for many years (25 to be exact!) and have tried our fair share of properties. Needless to say, we have come to know what we like and what we don't like. This property has to be on the top of our list! It is a beautiful 3 story townhome that proved to have plenty of space for our growing family. The Master Bedroom on the top floor was the perfect place for a 3 month old as it provided easy, quick access to the kitchen for feedings, and it was away from all the other bedrooms, providing efficient privacy. Speaking of bedrooms, the beds were the best we've ever slept in (when it comes to vacation rentals). They were comfortable and had quality pillows and sheets, etc. The kitchen was well stocked, providing us with everything we needed to cook many meals during our stay. Love the rockers on the top deck, too! A perfect place to watch the sun rise in the morning while enjoying a cup of joe :) Although the pool in the complex is on the smaller side, it was never crowded and was a nice getaway from the saltwater. This condo serves as a testament to the amount of work and thought the owners put into the place. Ron & Jeff are great! Very on top of things and want to make sure you're stay is without hassle! Thanks again for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Sasha,
We appreciate your kind words and thank you so much for staying with us! We hope to have you and your family back! It is always so nice to get feedback from our guests, as it helps us make improvements and understand what made the stay so special for them! We look forward to having you on future stays!

We strive to keep the home up and in the condition that we would hope to find a vacation rental in. Our goal was to outfit a vacation home for our own personal use and open the doors to guests that will hopefully become regulars like an extended family using our home.

Great Place For A Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
PharmaSea was a great fit for our family! It gave all of our 3 families plenty of space with separate bedrooms, baths and decks. We cooked in most evenings and the kitchen and dining area was well equipped for our needs. The beach access was close and easy and our kids loved the pool as a relief from the salt water each day. We brought lots of beach chairs and toys, but found plenty to use at the rental. Next time we would bring our bikes, since there is a bike lane along all the main roads on the island. I would recommend future renters to utilize the Sneads Ferry/N.Topsail bridge access to the island versus the Surf City swing bridge on Saturday afternoons. Surf City is extremely busy with tourist traffic on the weekends. The owners were easy to work with and they checked to make sure everything was to our liking. We would definitely recommend PharmSea to anyone visiting Topsail Island!

Very nice place, great location! The owner is very nice and very responsive. Only thing that would have made it better would be the ability to grill. Overall, great place, enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Well appointed townhouse w ocean view!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the best time on this vacation, even though Hurricane Arthur ended it a couple days early - to which the owner made a future accommodation to our group. He was very responsive to questions about the area and a couple questions about the place. We would definitely stay again, no question! Overlooks a couple bars, live music one night, ended at 10 pm and we wanted more! Good band. :)

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly as described and was just perfect for a family weekend away this fall... Clean and beautiful... A very short walk to the beach...A playground less than a mile down the street...Everything we needed and more in the kitchen. Included linens were a huge perk, too!

From the Owner

The homes location and the community's pool made it an easy choice for us to choose Sea Star Village as our site for our vacation home. The friendly atmosphere within the community and the proximity to the easy direct access to the beachfront are fantastic pluses! The amenities of the property itself along with the floor plan just made the decision that much easier. Its approximately 2.5 miles North of the center of town, so getting to shops, restaurants, seafood markets and other amenities is quite convenient.

From the Owner

The views from the living room deck are fantastic. Sunrise to the East with our fabulous ocean view and sunsets to the West overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. The open feeling of the main living area with its soaring ceilings and the amount of windows brings the outdoors inside. The layout of the home with the two master suites makes it great for two families to share the space. The proximity to local night life with The Brass Pelican next door, offering a premiere seat to the occasional bands they have on their rear patio, and Hula's Restaurant and Bar tucked away across the street offers great burgers, dancing and karaoke.
