About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, 18 Sleeps

Looking for the perfect getaway? Stress literally melts away as you watch the sun rise or the moon set over the Atlantic. Enjoy a

parade of dolphins with your morning coffee from a deck just a

stone's throw from the beach. Or, simply unwind with a fine merlot under the brightest stars you've ever seen.

Escape to Sur La Mer, your own private resort nestled on the

beautiful white sands of North Topsail Beach. You'll be swept away by the comfort, beauty and serenity of this oceanfront home.

Exquisitely designed, Sur La Mer offers 6 spacious bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. The first floor features three oceanfront bedroom suites, all with queen beds, top of the line bedding and custom window treatments. All queens also have direct access to the oceanfront deck offering a stunning view of the Atlantic, the surf and the beach. This floor also offers a bedroom perfectly designed for children. With two sets of bunk beds, a day bed with trundle, and TV/VCR/DVD, kids absolutely love this hideaway from the adults. There is also X Box and games provided for hours of enjoyment. A fifth bedroom offers a twin bed and twin over a double bunk bed with a view of the sunset over the Sound.

The beauty of the reverse floor plan is further revealed on the top floor, where you'll discover panoramic views of the ocean on one side and the intra-coastal waterway on the other. In the luxurious oceanfront master suite, you'll enjoy furnishings reminiscent of the British West Indies, a private bath, sitting area and TV/DVD. Coupled with the soothing ocean breeze, this suite provides comfort and serenity for even the neediest vacationer.

The vaulted common area features an English antique pub table that seats ten and a large island for your party to gather around. The gourmet kitchen, with top-of-the-line stainless appliances and solid surface counters, will make vacation mealtimes a simple pleasure. Then congregate, dine or just relax on the broad Trex deck listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean or the separate Onkyo 500 watt digital sound system with outside speakers.

We offer TVs with expanded cable in every bedroom, with HD channels and a DVR reserved for master bedroom guests. Wireless internet access and free local and long distance calling are also provider.

Sur La Mer features covered parking, wet weather entry, a

hot/cold enclosed outside shower and private beach access.

Don't settle for cramped "Coach" class condos or duplexes when you can vacation "First Class" at Sur La Mer.

About Kristin DeBates

Hi and welcome to our site. My name is Kristin and my husband and I built this house a few years ago. We take great pride in getting to know our guests and providing a nice retreat away from the hectic day to day.

We live in a suburb of Atlanta and absolutely fell in love with North Topsail a few years ago and decided to make the investment in our home away from home. We hope that you will consider our home as your vacation destination.

Kristin DeBates purchased this house in 2004

Why Kristin DeBates chose Topsail Island

You can't beat North Topsail for the beach! The views of the ocean and intercoastal are amazing. The dolphins parading at 9:00 am was a big crowd pleaser as well. And, you can't forget the sky and the stars at night. What absolute beauty! We take great pride in keeping our home clean and well-maintained. We also provide personalized attention that is difficult to get when dealing with a large agency.

What makes this house unique

When we vacation, we leave everything behind. Our home is perfectly situated to relax and just spend time with family. You can walk to the pier and fish, you can surf or play golf at a few different courses nearby. When you vacation here, you are dealing directly with the homeowner. We pride ourselves in offering a home that makes you feel comfortable, yet provides a little bit of luxury. And, we love dealing with our guests. Just read our reviews!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the pristine beaches of North Topsail and hope you will enjoy our home.

A perfect place to relax and enjoy summer at the shore!

  • 5 of 5

The spacious design of the home is perfect and it is very comfortably furnished. The grandchildren had the bunk room which was situated so that there was enough space for them to play on the floor uninterrupted . Each day there was the difficult decision to make ............sit on the deck and read or visit with family ..........sit on the beach and read or visit with family ....... comb the beach for shark teeth and shells ....... perfect! The evening brought the excursions on the beach to watch the ghost crabs or walk out on the fishing peir. Food Lion and Harris Teeter were close-by. The open-air fish market was as well and had a huge variety to select from! We all would have liked to stay another week! We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and a 70th birthday..... perfect. We can say it truly was "finest kind" as we say here in Maine.

Our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! It sits directly on the beach with a private walkway over the dunes that has a little deck to put your beach items on when the day is over, so you don't need to haul them from the house. The views are amazing! You have the ocean in the back and the beautiful sound out the front. I could wash dishes in the lovely open kitchen watching the sunset. We are a family of 12 and were perfectly comfortable. The 5 grandchildren were in the bunk rooms (with room to spare) and our adult children each had a queen room, while we had the master king. The house was spotless and comes with lots of games, puzzles, and toys for kids and adults. There are two high chairs and a baby gate. The owner, Kristin, is great! She and her house manager Donna respond promptly to any requests. The beach in this area of Topsail is not at all crowded and it's so peaceful, yet less than 10 minutes to the Food Lion and a great place for fresh shrimp and fish. This is our 3rd year coming as a family to Topsail. Each year we've tried something new, but this house has is hands down our favorite and we're already planning to return to it next year!

Excellent home and service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house with 15 people everything was great. The house was very clean and the air conditioners worked great. Owners where very quick to respond to any questions. Great location and great place. We would definitely stay again. We have stayed in North Topsail for the last 15 years and by far this was the nicest place. The house has a great floor plan along with a very nice Kitchen that was very well stocked with kitchen utensils. We definitely plan to return to this rental in the future.

Sur La Mer Dream house on the beach. Bob and Elaine

  • 5 of 5

We rented this large beach house on North Topsail Beach, NC for two weeks each of the eleven years from July 2006 thru August 2016. Illness caused us to miss this year (2017) and break what had become a much anticipated annual family (plus friends) event.

Each of the two living levels of this 3 level house boasts a full ocean side covered porch with sliding door access from the bedrooms and the large open living-dining area. The large country style dining table easily seats 13 (and more when necessary). Under the porch area a concrete patio is suitable for cooking even in inclement weather.

The surrounding area boasts a variety of attractions from the Battleship North Carolina BB-65 in nearby Wilmington to a sea turtle hospital to the Snead's Ferry Shrimp festival right across the bay.

We enthusiastically recommended the property to several folks who have thanked us for the chance to enjoy the fine Atlantic beach at Topsail Island, NC and hope this helps the reader to do the same.

The property is beautifully maintained and decorated. The kitchen is fully furnished and the dishwasher and refrigerator were new within the last 2 years. There's an additional freezer on the ground level. WiFi Internet is available as well as cable tv. Any repairs were taken care of immediately. Linen service is available and there is a washer and dryer on the lower level. Sur La Mer was a magical place for our family providing summers we'll never forget.

Great location for family vacation at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The six bedrooms provided plenty of room. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The two porches facing the ocean provided beautiful views with comfortable furniture. The property is a few minutes from town by car. The owner communicated promptly. We had a wonderful time with extended family from three countries. I highly recommend.

great beach house

  • 5 of 5

The beach house, the surrounding property, the beach access, and the beach itself were first rate. Our extended family of 8 adults and 7 children all had a wonderful time.
