Even more wonderful than I imagined!! Last week proved to be the most enjoyable vacation I have ever been blessed to experience. Your place is not only comfortable, convenient, and pretty, but has a warm, 'at home' atmosphere that made every moment special. My favorite room was the big screened porch. Our granddaughters could play at the shore, and we could keep our eyes on them in comfort & peace of mind. It was absolutely grand!! We also enjoyed cooking our meals with the great ocean view. I thanked the Lord every day for allowing us to be there!

Just wanted to say thanks again, the house was beautiful, and so was the town.

Kids cried when we left which was sad but let us know how much fun they really had.

Every thing you sent us was right on the money. thanks for your honesty.

We love your Beach Escape!! Being ocean front with its own private deck makes it so easy to 'hang out,' and not worry about our 'stuff. You are the most pleasant 'hosts' I've ever dealt with. You both make us feel so comfortable and at home. I could do a live commercial for your wonderful 'get away.' Thank you for your great place, it is truly a treasure.

'YOU WON'T BE SORRY YOU BOOKED THIS PLACE!' 'Our experience in this home was excellent! It is well cared for & just what we expected from the website. The owners were so easy to deal with that they felt like family. I hope to know them for the rest of my life! They told me what to pack, gave me ideas of things to do and places to eat, and perfect directions. At the house there were packets with restaurant menus (personal notes were written on them as to what is good to order, etc) and points of interest. The screened in porch was a blessing the one day it rained, because we ate our meals out there and played games, but still felt outdoors and near to the ocean. We took our other breakfasts and lunches on the deck picnic table which was awesome. While we were there, we had the beach to ourselves 95% of the time. There were so many shells that we were able to be super picky about which ones we chose (bring a bucket, you'll need it). Evenings were great because even though it was dark and you couldn't see the ocean, you could hear it. You really will not be disappointed.


Thank you so much for the opportunity to have a vacation of a lifetime. Your place is wonderful. Everything and even more than you said. The dolphins were wonderful to watch and we saw them daily. We had perfect weather and being able to spend it so close to the beach& ocean was beyond our wildest dream.

Your house was a wonderful relaxed family oriented place to watch the dolphins play as the sun rose. Sitting out was a great way to begin and end the day, watching the ocean roll in and out. There were turtle nesting areas up and down the beach , the fish were jumping, the pelicans and all the other seabirds swooping down for a stroll along the surf. What more could anyone want!

'A Beach Escape' is just that.It enables me to leave so far behind my daily world that it ceases to exist for me, and that is the primary reason I take vacations: to escape.

Our 3rd visit to 'Beach Escape' It was a good time, as always. We enjoy your personal touch, like menu's with notations, books, games, & info about local happenings.

We love going to A Beach Escape it is like going to a home away from home. Glad to give a reference but it is a lot like giving away your favorite secret hiding place!(honeymooners-came back for anniversaries),

My husband LOVED sitting in the living room swivel chair and looking at the ocean. So restful and helps recharge all your batteries.

Wonderful place to build memories! Saw my granddaughter's face as she saw her first real sunset! A memory to be treasured! Indescribable week!

how wonderful our time was there. The kids loved every second and my little boy cried for about .5 minutes when we left.. We all feel like we've found a home away from home I feel truly blessed to have found you. God bless you and your family!

Thoroughly enjoyed your home. I was able to lose all track of time. Took pictures of daybreak & nightfall to remind me of this special place. What a perfect spot to for a girlfriends trip. Renew & relax.

Thanks for your home. The location was perfect, and the birds were great! We appreciated the unpretentiousness of your home (unlike many on the barrier islands, which was a particularly important criteria for us as nature lovers. Thinking about our next trip there already.

TopSail Island Vacation

Review submitted: December 18, 2007   Date of arrival: October 1, 2007

Our stay was excellent. The house was clean and exactly what we were looking for. The beach was quiet and we were able to walk it everyday and collect shells. The island itself is a treasure!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Helpful votes: 28 / 56


Perfect family beach house!

Review submitted: June 23, 2014   Date of arrival: June 7, 2014

We loved our stay at A Beach Escape, the home was so comfortable, we felt right at home! The owners are very nice and were so helpful. The house was in a great location to be able to ride bikes into town, but was far enough out to enjoy a lot of privacy on the beach. There is a sandbar in front of the house that was so much fun at low tide, it made perfect swimming and wading spots for our little ones! We found lots of sharks teeth and sea shells right in front of the house. Gorgeous sunrise views, a peaceful screened porch, and plenty of room for two families, we couldn't have asked for a better week!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks for your note. We are so pleased you found everything as advertised including our responsiveness. We loved meeting your family. And thanks for your help in putting in the High Speed Wi Fi improvement. We like to do a big improvement every season!!
So glad too that you found all those nifty sea shells & sharks teeth. spray with acrylic and they make great jar displays and nice gifts for those at home. Come see us again sooner than later. Remember we give Discounts for repeat guests (active military & couples too). THINK BEACH!!

Simply Magical!

Review submitted: March 20, 2013   Date of arrival: February 23, 2013

My family stayed at "A Beach Escape" for two weeks at the end of February, beginning of March for my Mom's 65th birthday. There were eight of us in total, including my two little nephews who are 2 and a half and just 3 months old! The house was well appointed with everything we needed and we spent most of our time on the covered porch or building sandcastles on the beach. We loved watching the dolphins and pelicans play on the coast and had many cups of tea just sitting by the water. This place is a little piece of heaven on earth! There are wonderful grocery stores and restaurants close by and the Inis spa is a special place to get some beauty treatments. Overall, our whole family LOVED our holiday and would go back in a heart beat. As for me, I still dream of the ocean and "Carolina House" as my little nephew calls "A Beach Escape." Such a healing holiday. Thanks for Mary Ann for being so wonderful and helpful - it was such an easy and good experience working with her to make this happen. If you're thinking you want to get away from it all - this is the spot. (As an aside, my favourite moment was when we first arrived and my Mom went out on the deck and wept when she saw the ocean. She'd been dreaming of a vacation like this for a lifetime. Dad joined her in the tears and soon we were all crying and laughing. We have such gratitude for our experience!) <3
