Our beautiful, spacious four bedroom, three bath beach house, Slip Away, is located on Topsail Island and provides the best of both worlds. A ninety second walk will take you to the ocean. A less than one minute walk in the other direction will lead you to the sound where you can watch spectacular sunsets. Bring your boat (30' limit) or jet ski and launch it using our private neighborhood boat ramp; then dock it for the duration of your stay in the nearby canal. Enjoy sunbathing on the upper deck of the house or read a favorite book in the shade of the lower deck.
The 2400 sq. ft. reverse floor plan includes cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors in the dining & kitchen areas, Berber carpet in the living room and bedrooms, and tile in the bathrooms. Lots of ceiling fans and windows provide beautiful views and breezes. There is a large deck on the back of the house on both levels. On the upper deck you will find a large picnic table with benches, two chaise lounges, and chairs. On the lower deck you will find a nice porch swing in the shade.
Avoid the hassles and heartaches of dealing with a commission based rental agent who is managing dozens if not hundreds of other properties. With Slip Away you speak directly with the owners who are responsive to your needs. References available upon request.
There are many activities for the entire family nearby: surf & pier fishing; charter boat fishing, both near-shore and deep sea; crabbing & clamming; miniature golf, golf courses on the mainland; lots of shopping including several very nice art galleries; Internet cafes; roller skating; surf board, jet ski, & kayak rentals; bicycle rentals (the towns of Surf City and Topsail Beach have paved bicycle lanes); and a wide variety of restaurants from very casual to elegant. Local events that may interest you include: the Kiwanis Sun Fest (May), July 4 Fireworks, the King Mackerel Tournament (Aug.), the Snead's Ferry Shrimp Festival (Aug.), Autumn with Topsail (Oct.), & the Holiday Boat Flotilla (Nov.). During the summer visit the Sea Turtle Hospital, one of only a few such facilities in the US that cares for & rehabilitates injured sea turtles. Twice yearly you may observe the staff as they return rehabilitated turtles to the sea.
Topsail Island is a family oriented beach. Visitors enjoy Topsail, returning year after year, because of the many miles of uncrowded sandy beaches. Perfect for swimming, walking, sunbathing, fishing, or simply relaxing. You will fall in love with the island. Our neighborhood is located on the southern end of Topsail. But don't limit yourself to the beach. Be sure to spend some time enjoying the sound where you will see interesting wildlife.
Topsail Island is located between Morehead City and Wilmington. In addition to the beach activities available on the island, you will find many interesting activities along the coast of North Carolina. In the Wilmington area consider a visit to the WW II era USS Battleship North Carolina and the NC Aquarium. Both great fun for children of all ages. History buffs will enjoy visiting Ft. Fisher, Brunswick Town, and the historic homes of Wilmington including Orton Plantation. Traveling north to the Morehead area you can visit the NC Maritime Museum and the 2nd of the state's three aquariums. New Bern, NC's pre-colonial capital, is home to Tryon Palace and additional homes dating to the 1700's. Are you a lighthouse buff? Visit the Cape Lookout lighthouse near Morehead and the Bald Head Lighthouse in Southport. Contact us for more information about these and other possible day trips in the Topsail area.
