Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Wow, a beach vacation with the family, in a home that's as cute as this one is? This year, you're going to love your vacation!

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.

Why Steve Morrison chose Topsail Island

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.

The property was very clean and spacious for my party of 10 all of the amenities we needed were here

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to have perfect weather during our stay in topsail, the house was situated perfectly for us to be able to run to the store easily yet far enough away to have a relatively private beachfront experience! The owners were very easy to work with and available to us we had a really great experience and a memorable vacation at this house we would definitely book again!

Bright, airy, large enough for our family of 10.

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the decks and view of the ocean. My husband and I had our morning coffee and evening adult beverage on the deck. My husband spent many hours on the lower deck reading and watching the ocean. The close proximity to the ocean was perfect for spontaneous walks, playing games and sunbathing. The owner of the house was very responsive to all our questions. We would stay here again.

The one draw back of this beautiful home is that one set of bunk beds is in the laundry room, it was cramped and not very private.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you had a great time. We do have a washing machine and dryer in the closet of the smallest bedroom. It was originally in the enclosed area downstairs underneath the house, but thought it would be more useful to have it up in that room. We actually have sleeping for 14, if somebody didn't want that room: KB, QB, QB, 4 BBs in the kids room, 2 BB in the small bedroom, and a QSS in the living room. But I am so glad that you enjoyed the double decks and the view of the ocean. You said you enjoyed having coffee in the morning looking at the ocean on the top deck. You may not have noticed, but we built a 6" podium for the deck chairs so that when you sit there, your view is not blocked by the deck rail. I hope you come visit us again.

Great Family Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Day was a perfect location for our family getaway during February. We enjoyed the daily sunrise, walks on the beach, quick polar bear plunges, visit to the local pier, successful scouting for cool shells and sharks teeth, and convenient shopping.

I liked finding shells and eating Pirate snacks! (Magdalene - 5)

I liked the dolphin sightings! (Veronica - 7)

I enjoyed collecting shells and spending time with my family (Emeline -10)

I liked the view off the front deck! (Adelaide - 10)

Wonderful Winter Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Day is a great house in a great location! We found it perfect for a peaceful stay at the beach with just that right amount of exciting. It’s right on the beach and has tremendous large windows to take in the whole reason to stay in a place like this; whether sitting and reading, cooking and eating, or just hanging out. The view of the ocean is wonderful both inside and outside, on a pretty big porch. We enjoyed the fact that we could run down the short private boardwalk to the beach any time we wanted, which at times seemed like a private beach. The pier is just in view and fun to see while not being intrusive to the view. We saw dolphins playing in the waves every single day we were there, and there were also views of whales off the pier. There was plenty of room for everybody, the colors are bright and cheery, the furniture was comfy and the beds gave a good night’s sleep. We had everything we needed to cook our meals when we wanted, and it’s just a hop and skip to get down to the Surf City action. We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to going back! Our whole family recommends this place.
