vacation rental description

Located on the north end of Topsail Island, North Topsail Beach is a barrier island with the Atlantic on one side and the Intra Coastal Waterway on the other. 

Our home has its' own beach on the ocean.  Since North Topsail is primarily residential, the beaches are seldom crowded

In the summer, our weather is usually about 10 degrees cooler than the mainland because of those off shore breezes. 

Since we are only a 2 minute drive to the bridge to the mainland, grocery and other shopping and restaurants are only about a 7 minute drive. 

The home was custom built by the owner in 2007.  It has been elegantly and tastefully furnished and outfitted.

The entire house has been professionally decorated and it is beautiful.

It is a duplex.  Each side has the exact same layout.  Only the furnishings are different.  There are 2 interior connections- one on the first floor and one on the second floor.

The first floor has 8 bedrooms with 6 baths, 2 laundry rooms and 2 outside showers w/change rooms. There are 4 queen size bedrooms with baths on this floor, two bedrooms with twin beds(converts to a couch)each with a TV/DVD,  and 2 bunk rooms that sleeps 12. 

The second floor has 2 king master suites each with bath, TV/DVD, makeup counter & private balcony.  Also, on the second floor are 2 great rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 dining areas, 2 45" flat screen TV/DVD's, 2 fireplaces, those incredible views, wrap around decks, 2 outdoor gas grills,  and 2 half baths.

The 3rd floor has 2 penthouse suites  each with TV/DVD,custom bath, large private deck & fabulous water views. 

All the bathrooms have custom tile, white marble sinks and vanities, and exhaust fans.  4 of the bathrooms(2nd & 3rd floors) have custom glass shower doors.  All of the bathroom and bedroom doors are solid wood to cut down on noise transference.  There is a window in the penthouse suite shower from which you can watch the boats sail up the Intra Coastal Waterway.

A truly stunning ocean front masterpiece, combining the practical and dramatic. This duplex gives the curb appearance of a large single family home. 

Each side provides 2,500 sq ft (for a total of 5,000 sq ft)of living area. There are 2,000 sq ft of decks & balconies with fabulous water views.  Each side has a large 2 car garage & plenty of room for your extras.  There are 2 dumbwaiters to take luggage & groceries from the garage level to the 1st & 2nd floors.

  Besides having great curb side appeal and architectural  beauty, it is the only house where all the bedrooms, because of unique side balconies and decks, have both an ocean view and an intracoastal waterway view.  These private balconies also provide a great place for some quiet time.

All the walls, ceilings, closets, and stairways are insulated to cut down on noise transference.

  This is a fully equipped luxury property. Come stay with us and we know you  will want to come back again and again.

activities and attractions in North Topsail Beach Atlantic Coast

North Shore Country Club is less than a 5 minute drive from the house.  This 4 star golf course is open to the public.

The town park with fishing, basketball, horseshoes, tennis (2 courts w/night lights), and enclosed children's playground  is an 3 minute walk from the house. 

Bring your bike or rent one and travel the separate bike path which passes in front of the house.

The Seaview, longest fishing pier on the East Coast, is a leisurely 20 minute down the beach or a 2 minute drive from the house.  You can rent fishing gear and buy bait.  They will cook your catch!  They have a great little restaurant. 

Good activity for one day-  get your group together for a walk down the beach.  Collect sea shells.  Stop at the Seaview for lunch or brunch.  Pay $1, and walk the pier to see how the fishermen are doing.  

Visit the very unique Turtle Hospital.  A big loggerhead deposited 100+ eggs on our private beach last year.

Go surfing. Our beach is a popular surf spot.

Bring your surfcaster (or rent one at the Seaview) and fish off our private beach for dinner.

Drive to Wilmington and tour several of  the beautiful plantation homes. Enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants on the river and then enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride.

Visit Grants Fish and see the pet alligator while buying fresh local shellfish or fish to bring home to cook.

At sunset, gather for drinks on our 3rd floor deck to watch magnificent sunsets over the Intra Coastal Waterway.

At night, sit out on the bench on the dune crossover and watch the moonbeam or see how many stars you can count.

Sit on the  beach, listen to the rhythmic sounds of the shore break, dig your toes in to the sand, and read that book you've been wanting to read.  Or, watch the precision formations of the pelicans overhead.  Or, take a nap!

traveler reviews for this north topsail beach house rental

Wonderful house/wonderful vacation

Review submitted: July 23, 2014   Date of arrival: May 16, 2014

For large family get-togethers, it is often challenging to find one house that meets everyone’s needs – accommodates all age groups, offers equal parts shared space and privacy, allows for ease in eating-in and dining-out, and is in a location that provides activities for those who want to sight-see versus those who simply want to relax. We recently stayed at this property and were quite pleased to find that this house pleasantly met – and exceeded – our every expectation. We plan on returning!

The floor plan lends itself to large families. A big selling point for renting the duplex is how easy it was to go between the two units. Also, the wall between the two sides of the duplex is sound-proof – and sometimes large families can be loud! The house is beautifully maintained with what I would term “casually elegant” furnishings. This distinguishes it from other beach-side properties and is an added treat. The living space is comfortable and homey, and on chilly nights, we had a fun time turning on the fireplace. The house is designed for entertaining, with ample room in the kitchen for multiple people to be involved in helping to do the prep-work for meals. For those interested in grilling, we very much enjoyed going to the local fish market and experimenting with cooking new types of fish.

As stated before, the house offers a good balance between communal space and privacy. We especially loved the “penthouse” suite on the top floor. The balcony adjoining the penthouse suite has one of the most beautiful views in the house, and we enjoyed congregating there to watch the sunset. Equally fun, the walkway out to the ocean has a couple of benches, which made for same great late-night conversations and stargazing.

The beach itself was beautiful and well-maintained. While more crowded on the weekends than on weekdays, we never found it to be too crowded. In fact, we very much enjoyed watching other people use the beach – it was great fun to watch people playing and exercising – and we even spotted one engagement photo session!

Last, we found the quality of customer service provided by the owner Paulette to be that magic ingredient that makes a family get-together truly memorable. You can tell she and her husband truly care about their guests’ stay – both in the house and on the island. In summary, we couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience. Many thanks to Paulette in providing visitors with a beautiful, elegant, well-designed home.

Especially nice large house for big group

Review submitted: June 28, 2014   Date of arrival: May 31, 2014

We have rented adjoining houses 5 times previously just north of Surf city for our extended family group, consisting of 7 married couples and older children ( currently most of the kids are in their 20s!). We loved this duplex because we had plenty of room to spread out with all the bedrooms - everyone had their own bed and every couple had their own bedroom with a private bath. Being a duplex, the convenience of easily getting to the other side was a big plus- much easier than traveling from 2 adjacent houses. Moving from one duplex to the other was possible on the 1st floor ( bedroom floor) at the foyer and also on the 2nd floor ( main living area/kitchen) through a doorway on ocean deck. The walls were well insulated not only between the duplexes, but within each one, making sleeping great. We were very pleased to find that the beds were all made up when we arrived. Previous houses required that we sort the linens and make our own beds. The kitchens were well thought out and well appointed. Almost any tool or pan necessary to cook with was available. We usually have gone out to dinner on previous visits to the island. Cooking was so pleasant and easy, we had dinner at the house every night. The owners provided all that they promised and the house was in very good condition - clean and well maintained. The owners were easy to contact and they spent time carefully explaining details. The views were amazing from the decks. Since the house is north of the north bridge, the beaches were not at all crowded and during the weekdays, we almost had the beach to ourselves. As an aside, there is good shopping just over the north bridge - you don't have to fight the drawbridge traffic on the south side of the island!

This was our first time renting a home from a HomeAway listing. We were nervous at first, but this was a good experience. We plan on coming back to this rental in the future.

Pictures don't do this House Justice...

Review submitted: April 20, 2013   Date of arrival: April 11, 2013

We were looking for a house with 6 bedrooms for friends/family to come to for a week of fun. After a LOT of research, we decided on the Sunrise side of this property. Upon initial contact with Paulette, she was wonderful to work with. She was prompt and organized with the details and the information that she forwarded to us. After initially planning the trip for a total of 15 guests at the house, Jack and I decided it would be the perfect time to get married. I immediately called and spoke with Paulette about this. She approved the use of the house for the wedding. Paulette responded to each email/phone call/question promptly and we had all documentation in the time frame that she stated to us. We only live 1 1/2 hours away from Topsail and I wanted to look at the house, before-hand, and Paulette and Jim were kind enough to give me a tour on a weekend when they were visiting. On April 11 we finally arrived at the house. When Jack walked into the house, his exact words were, "The pictures on the web don't do this house justice!" and he was REALLY right!! This house has EVERY thing you could ever want! It was like being at home, except BETTER!! The best thing was that linens were included for all 6 bedrooms! Then there is the VIEW of the ocean from the main floor!! It is truly breathtaking!! The kitchen is designed for entertaining, but homey enough to just pad around to whip something up for the family! These owners go the extra mile to make their property special for those staying in it. Each bedroom is roomy, beautifully decorated and makes you want to snuggle down and sleep a little longer. The living room/dining room is cozy with that panoramic view of the Atlantic, with access to decks and walkway to the beach. The "penthouse" bedroom has it's own private deck, with a view of the ocean and the ICW. Two of the bedrooms have private decks with ocean/ICW views also. The last two have access to the lower deck and walkway to the beach. Our beach wedding and reception at this house was PERFECT! Paulette sent out pre-arrival information with interesting things to do in the area, as well as restaraunts. These owners really care about their property AND their guests! I would (and WILL) recommend this house to friends who are looking for a place in N. Topsail. And we will look to return to celebrate our anniversary! Thank you Paulette and Jim for sharing your beautiful home with us! Our wedding was outstanding because it was held in this spectacular house!
