Seas the Day - the Most Beautiful House on the BEACH!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 25, 2016
House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is the most beautiful house on Topsail! And it's right on the beach - not an 'ocean-view' a couple of blocks from the beach or across the street from the beach, or even a piano lot (with only a small strip that extends between the houses to the beach). Seas the Day is right on the beach and the house is gorgeous.

Now wait a minute...I bet you think I'm just saying that. Well look at what some of are guests have said (see the full comments below):

'The website does not do this house justice! It is gorgeous, and the views of the beach and water are amazing from every room. ' Bonnie from Va

'Seas the Day is one of the best vacation houses I have stayed in. ... You will not be disappointed if you rent this place' Norma Jean from Ohio

'I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a wonderful beach house that has one of the best vistas in Topsail.' Mark from Northern Va

'Loved that house!!!!!! oh my, the walk to the pier was wonderful and so pretty. the house was perfect and held my whole family! it was an awesome vacation! thank you so much! wonderful!' Jessica from Ohio

And it goes on. You will truly love your stay at Seas the Day.

Located just 1 mile south of the Surf City pier, you're close to all the activity, yet just far enough away to enjoy the tranquility that lives here also. As a matter of fact, you may note some of our guests jokingly refer to the 'Buddy's walk'. Buddy's is a bar/restaurant by the pier, which is a nice 1 mile walk on the beach. Some people, including my brother, myself and our two wives like to walk down to Buddy's at lunch time, watch the surfers by the pier, order oyster shooters, and... possibly a cerveza or two (that's Spanish for beer) and maybe a tequila shooter. Well, the walk back is now quite enjoyable. We often just come back, lay out a towel and catch some rays and a snooze. The Buddy's walk - a perfect way to spend a vacation day.

Do you like to bike or run? There is a bike shoulder on the main road the entire way from the north side of Surf City to the south tip of the island. The island is like 22 miles long, so you can get a good work out.

Recently I rode my bike to the south end, and the smell of Jasmin and ocean air was unbelievable. I stopped on the far south point of the island and walked around the beach on the undeveloped point. I then rode back to Topsail Beach city hall and said hi to the ladies who worked there. (They had kindly sent me an invitation to pay real estate tax in their city even though my house was in Surf City. I graciously declined :-) but they were very pleasant.) I then rode back to Surf City and promptly bought an ice cream cone at DQ just to make sure I hadn't burnt off too many calories.

Believe me, this place is fun.

And I haven't even told you about Giligan's, just before the bridge on the mainland side and it's hilarious karaoke nights, or about Sears Landing and its award winning clam chowder made with sherry, or Indigo Marsh - the best restaurant overlooking the sound that you will ever find. Oh, and how about the fresh fish market (I mean right off the boat) behind the Crab Pot where you can get shrimp, flounder, shark or whatever they have been catching and take it back and grill it at Seas the Day.

You can play 18 holes at Coastal Carolina's only four-star golf course, North Shore Golf and Ocean Club (as per Golf Digest).

Surf shops that make me wish I was 18 again, Andy's and Island Delights that serve 50's style burgers and malts, the Surf City Wine and Cheese Shop (I go in for the weekly wine tastings and just the great smell!), II Bouchaines, and on and on. You won't want to leave.

And I haven't even talked about surf fishing, kayaking, surfing, jet skiing and more (check out the ALL CAPS paragraph below to see my web site for MORE things to do with phone numbers, addresses, etc.)

Seas the Day is BEACH FRONT. It is not a piano lot, a view lot, or across the street from the ocean. It is direct OCEANFRONT property.

For my RESTAURANT REVIEWS and THINGS TO DO web pages, LOOK BELOW THE CALENDAR ICON FARTHER DOWN ON THIS PAGE below the rates. ABOUT 1 INCH BELOW THAT THERE IS A LINE THAT SAYS 'CLICK HERE for more photos and information'. CLICK THERE and then click on RESTAURANT REVIEWS or the THINGS TO DO pages.

My teenage son once walked up the stairs to the living room and said 'This place just makes you smile!'

I still think OUR GUESTS SAY IT BEST:

'We loved the outside shower, complete wtih room for dry clothes and towels! Very kid friendly, my 13-month-old niece could wander around and the gates kept her safe. Topsail itself is so peaceful. We went to the sound side a few times to fish, canoe, and take the baby swimming. We golfed, ran, sailed (you have very nice neighbors who invited us!), and fished from the surf (caught sharks, stingrays, and a few fish). Such a great house -- plenty of space, well decorated, and everything you need in the kitchen for eating in!' Bonnie VA

Jim Murray from GA agrees wholeheartedly:

'My sister and I are both recently retired school teachers. For over 25 years we have talked about renting a beach house on the North Carolina coast, big enough to house all of our families. ... This house was everything we had dreamed about. It was RIGHT ON THE WATER,...

'Setting on our porch, we could watch the sun rise each morning. In the evening we could drive to the end of the island and watch the sun sink into the ocean....I bought 5 kites and one day we all spent the day flying them. ... We enjoyed the secluded walks on the beach and the discovery of hundreds of sea shells. We saw dolphins swimming by several times. The only regret we had, was that we couldn't stay for another week.'

We have added a 42' FLAT SCREEN TV in the living room and NEW FLAT SCREEN TVs in the master and 2 queen bedrooms, and there is a large TV in the bunk beds room. Ill post pictures soon.

BEDROOM SETUP: Top floor: QB & Full Bath. (There is also a QSS but it's right in the middle of the living room); Middle floor: KB, QB, 2BB (i.e. 4 beds), and BB with 2 Full Baths. There is a deck on both floors and there is an enclosed outdoor shower on the deck of the middle floor. The bottom floor has 2 full car garage, grill, and storage space.

Great home, great beach! Beach is MUCH closer than in the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Seas the Day. Steve Morrison was great to deal with. The house was perfect for our family. Son, Daughter-in-law and granddaughter, daughter and my husband and me. We all had our own bathrooms and there was room for several more people! We didn't even use the bedroom with 4 bunk-beds in it.

The beach was great! Much closer than it looked in the pictures and the houses on either side DO NOT interfere with the view at all.

Make sure you rent linens and towels so they are there before you come! Bring/buy your own toilet paper, paper towels, spices, etc. Otherwise there are plenty of pots and pans and dishes.

Highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Laurie - I'm so glad that you and your family had a great time. The beach is lovely and is only separated from the house by the dune which protects Seas the Day during a storm. I do hope you come again.

Landlubbers Converted!

  • 5 of 5

I talked my Midwestern in-laws, who have spent little time on the ocean, into staying a week at the beach. So it was really important that our they have a good time. (Our family consisted of 12, including young people in their early twenties, a toddler, and six of us old-timers over age 55.) Seas the Day lived up to every expectation! The house was very tidy and well-maintained, and right on the beach. When we walked into the house, two doggie bowls welcomed us--the house is very dog and kid-friendly. Steve had arranged for an extra table and chairs, which was greatly appreciated by our large group. We had a minor problem with an appliance, and Steve was right on it and had it fixed the very next morning. Surf City, with its proximity to the pier, restaurants, grocery and shops, was an ideal place to stay for our group, and Steve's recommendations for restaurants and even a local spa were right on the money! Our family had a great time, and I think we converted even the most die-hard landlubbers to the beach life. Thank you, Steve!

Owner's Response: Edrie - we loved having your family come and sty at Seas the Day. The beach will definitely turn a land-lubber into a beach lover.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! WE WILL BE BACK!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so amazing! The location is perfect for solitude but close enough to everything you could want during your vacation. The access to the beach, the comfortable home feeling of the house, the pet friendly welcome of two dog bowls with treats in them for our pups, the upper deck for early morning meals or late evening suppers, the lower deck for when the sun can be too much...it was truly amazing. I can't wait to stay here again. We did have one situation with the downstairs A/C not working when we first arrived, but the owners were so nice and quick to respond. (Even during the whole rental process prior to coming to his home, he was so nice.) The A/C was fixed the next day quickly and we didn't mind falling asleep with the screened doors wide open, the gentle breeze from the ocean and the sound of the waves crashing. Highly recommend staying here. Can't wait until next time and we will be spreading the word around about this home. Thanks for everything Steve!

Location

From the Owner

We absolutely love Surf City. But Seas the Day is so beautiful itself. The colors seem to bring the outdoor yellows of the sun, the sky's blue, and the ocean's greens inside. This is a totally relaxing beach house. The ocean breezes, the salt air, and the wonderful people make this a great place to be.
