SURF CITY'S 5-STAR CONDO!

(a sampling from reviews below:)

'5 STARS: Great Beach Townhouse across from the Beach. What we loved about Sea Star was having 4 bedrooms 3.5 bathrooms, loads of balconies, a slightly more upscale kitchen, and being literally right across from the beach.'

'5 STARS: Wonderful place to stay. ... With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths it was perfect for everyone. ... The pool was great and the beach was perfect. ... The kitchen was roomy and love the granite counters. Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us.'

'5 STARS: Our first night there one of my students said 'I wish this was my house, this is my dream house'. It really was awesome. Loved the view of the ocean, the spacious bedrooms and living space and the updated bathrooms and kitchen. I hope to stay here again. Wireless internet was a bonus!'

'5 STARS: We had a wonderful time. The beach was so close and the view was great from the upper desk. We cooked in 4 nights and had everything we needed. ... We seemed to have more room at this condo in the family room area than the other places in the same complex. ... The condo was beautiful inside. We would love to go back there next summer!'

'5 STARS: Great Location. We enjoyed our stay at Mayberry@Sea Star. Great access to the beach. The photos accurately reflect the property and the owner was helpful in answering our questions.'

'5 STARS: Our Wedding Dream. ... the house was perfectly set up for everyone's needs. The place is decorated very nicely and attention to little details. House was clean and welcoming. We will definitely be back.'

'5 STARS: Condo is great, location wonderful and beach beautiful. ... My granddaughter wishes she lived there. We played on the beach like we were kids again. We also enjoyed sitting and talking on the deck at nite while watching planes fly by and even a few shooting stars!!! Look forward to another visit. '

'5 STARS: We had a wonderful sunny week at the beach. We loved being so close to the ocean. What a view! The children played in the water and looked for seashells and sea glass. ... We look forward to coming again soon.'

'5 STARS: So close to the beach!! Loved having an oceanview. We liked that there was enough room to accommodate our group (8) easily and we weren't crammed as we have been in past condo. Too cold for the pool during Spring Break, so we'll just have to come back this summer =) ... Thanks for a great time!'

'5 STARS: This place is the definition of serenity. The upstairs layout was perfect for our nightly family dinners. We loved having the two master bedrooms and the ocean view was breathtakingly beautiful. We will definitely be back---soon!'

==================================

Topsail Island is wonderfully slow-paced and family-friendly. This beautiful modern luxury condo, with ocean view, community pool, four decks and master-bedroom jacuzzi, is owned by the author and photographer of 'Topsail Island: Mayberry by the Sea.' It is just one-half block from the beach and two decks have views of the ocean. Located in northern Surf City, near North Topsail Beach, the home is 2 miles from the shopping/restaurant center of the island.

The home has four bedrooms, including two master-bedroom suites. One suite includes a jacuzzi-type whirlpool tub and a pool view; the other has an ocean view. The home has two other bedrooms, each leading to a deck overlooking the pool. (Guests have access to the pool.) There are five beds – king, 2 queens, 2 twins – plus a two-person pullout sofa. (You provide towels and bed linens: your own or try either Me and Mom Cleaning or Sunsational Rentals, which deliver/pick up.) Coastal-style furniture, seascape paintings/prints and other island art decorate the home. (No smoking, please.)

A large open living area includes the kitchen and also has an outdoor deck overlooking the pool. Luxury abounds throughout this home, including such items as ceiling fans throughout, nine-foot-tall ceilings, granite counters and tile floors.

Other amenities: keyless electronic door lock; indoor and outdoor dining tables; covered parking for three vehicles; deck chairs and ocean breezes; outdoor shower; high-speed wireless internet; 72-channel cable.

You'll fall in love with both Topsail and this home!

* HAVE MORE/FEWER GUESTS OR HAVE DOGS WHO NEED A FENCED YARD? Be sure to check out our sister property, Mayberry by the Sea, a 3-bedroom home with fenced yard, located just 2-1/2 blocks away. (Property No. 301278 on VRBO.) Large groups renting both homes the same week save 5 percent off rental fees in peak season, 10 percent all other times.

Great Beach Townhouse across from the Beach

Review submitted: August 30, 2013   Date of arrival: August 10, 2013

This is our 3rd year renting a beach house from this wonderful and accomodating owner! This year though we moved from Mayberry by the Sea to Sea Star due to scheduling. The two locations are different but equally great. What we loved about Sea Star was having 4 bedrooms 3.5 bathrooms, loads of balconies, a slightly more upscale kitchen, and being literally right across from the beach. What we missed about Mayberry by the Sea was it's wonderful fenced backyard, old-fashioned laid-back front porch, and its overall feeling of being in a different era (though the house is completely modern).

Recommended for: families with young children, pet-friendly

Wonderful Place to Stay

Review submitted: June 28, 2013   Date of arrival: June 15, 2013

This is a great place to stay. Lots of bedrooms and we were able to have family from several different states to join us in a family celebration. The weather was great except couple days of rain but that was a good break from the sun. I would highly recommend staying here. With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths it was perfect for everyone and nobody was on top of each other. The pool was great and the beach was perfect. We even enjoyed an evening kayaking on the bay. The kitchen was roomy and love the granite counters. Overall a great week and was very comfortable. Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us.

"Wish this was my house, This is my dream house" Incredible!

Review submitted: February 11, 2013   Date of arrival: January 31, 2013

Recently stayed here with a group of 9 of us. We came from Canada to a attend a leadership conference to build into to lives of my student interns. This place was a refuge for us to recharge and reflect on what we were learning. Our first night there one of my students said "I wish this was my house, this is my dream house". It really was awesome. Loved the view of the ocean, the spacious bedrooms and living space and the updated bathrooms and kitchen. I hope to stay here again. Wireless internet was a bonus!
