Property Details

Updated: Aug 17, 2016
Every Inch Is Maximized For Comfort And Convenience. You Focus On Fun And Sun!

A complete and thoughtful renovation in 2010 makes this oceanfront unit one of a kind in an already great condo complex.

The expected: Standard bedroom--this one with a king-sized bed that can be converted to two XLong Twins. Storage space for suitcases under the bed and plenty of drawers and hanging space. Full kitchen with all new cabinetry and appliances, plus a full pantry able to hold lots of supplies. Loads of living room seating and a 47' HDTV, DVD player and sound bar. Oceanfront deck with bar stools and table for 2 and 2 rockers.

The unusual: Two full baths (NOT 1 1/2) with loads of storage. No bunk beds! Rather we have 2 XL twin Murphy (pull down from the wall) beds in the living area. Each bed has a storage armoire next to it with hanging space and 4 drawers. Exclusive use of covered parking under the unit for two cars. Adjacent to the carport, there is storage/changing space filled with beach games and equipment for guests' use--including a bike. Linens for bed, bath and beach are provided as are tokens for the laundromat in case you want to wash or dry the towels after a day on the beach.

The thoughtful renovation of this small space creates very functional interiors allowing for big-time gourmet meals, quiet reading, watching movies, getting good sleep and playing family games. The super location makes it easy to set up a shade shelter on the beach to spend the day in the surf, playing corn-hole and ladder golf, building sand castles and taking cat naps with the surf swirling around your ankles. We think it's a perfect vacation and hope you will too!

We are empty-nesters with three grown sons who live out of town. Jack has worked at Square D for 20+ years in Marketing and Zane is employed part-time at their church as director of the women's ministry. Jack travels a lot with work so Zane enjoys spending time with their cavapoo puppy, Echo! The beach is our favorite spot for family gatherings.

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is such a beautiful home! We've been coming to Surf City for years, and this is the first time we've rented a condo. I can say we were pleasantly surprised. The layout of the condo makes it appear bigger than the 800 sq ft. The second full bathroom in the bedroom is definitely a bonus. There was plenty of storage space. The "extras" that are provided are rare for a rental; from the linens, beach towels, paper products, soap, beach chairs & umbrella, it was all so appreciated! I must admit I was hesitant to rent at first as there is no washer & dryer in unit, but it turned out to not be an issue for us at all. I was able to wash & dry 4 loads of laundry in just over an hour at the laundry facility. The underneath the condo parking spot was a plus too. The grounds crew, security, staff, were all so pleasant. The grounds & pool of Surf City Condos are very clean & maintained. The view was simply amazing. This was our best vacation to date since we started coming to Topsail. We will definitely be back & will recommend! Thank you Jack & Zane for sharing your home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit. It was a bonus having 2 bathrooms and there was ample storage and plenty of towel bars so our stuff could dry out. The unit was modern and comfortable and we will stay there again.

Heaven, pure heaven.

  • 5 of 5

We love Topsail Beach and have been going off and on for 25 years. This was our second stay at Surf 116 and it was as perfect as the first. You cannot beat the beach front, ocean front location. The condo is beautifully decorated in addition to clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped for basic cooking. Although to be honest most dinners were eaten out. We did take advantage of the steamer to steam up some fresh shrimp one evening. I can't drag myself away from the sand so I spent most of my time on the beach or on the balcony looking at the beach. Thank you Jack and Zane for sharing your beautiful beach home with our family. We hope to return next year. Keep us on your mailing list.

Clean, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation! The condo had everything we needed, and we loved the decor and layout. We have rented many nice condos before, but this one was different - starter paper products, spices in the kitchen, and other little touches that made it so easy to get acclimated and just relax. Easy beach access and covered parking under the unit also made the week very pleasant. This was the first time we didn't have a washer and dryer in our unit, but that wasn't a problem as the laundromat in the complex was convenient and affordable (lots of machines, too). Thank you so much to the Creamers for making this little slice of heaven available to others - we will definitely return.

Relaxing stay!

My husband and I loved the condo! Very clean and also convenient access to both beach and pool! This was our first trip Topsail Island and it couldn't have gone better! Beach umbrellas and chairs in the storage unit were definitely a plus! Also parking space under the unit was very convenient! Thanks to the Creamers for sharing their beach home with us! Looking forward to staying here again!

Refreshing stay at Surf City

  • 5 of 5

We just want to thank the Creamers for the use of their very modern and updated condo. It is only a few short steps to the beach or the pool. The condo had everything we needed, including beach chairs and umbrella's in the storage area. The underneath parking for 2 vehicles also keeps your cars nice and cool in the hot sun. We really loved sitting on the deck in the evenings with the citronella candle burning and listening to the sound of the surf. This was our first trip to Topsail Island and it wont be our last. It was a most refreshing and much needed vacation for us and we plan on returning next year again. Thank You. John & Darcy Seidel

From the Owner

Upon our move to Raleigh, NC in 1990 we started coming with our young family to Surf Condos. The timing was right in 2010 to buy a unit for ourselves, and with the help of our boys, to renovate it in a way that works for the whole family to enjoy. For us, it has been a dream come true and we are waiting for the day when we can share it with our grandchildren!!

From the Owner

We love the ease of Topsail Island: plenty of things to do, but not a lot of distractions (outlet malls, boardwalk, etc.). We love the ease of Surf City: Center part of the 26 mile long island, so no long commutes on and off the island. Restaurants, shops and churches are close enough to walk or bike. We love the ease of the condo: Just big enough to hold us, it has everything we need, much of what we want, and none of the clutter that seems to stick around in the primary home.
