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.

Sur La Mer features covered parking, wet weather entry, a hot/cold

enclosed outside shower and private beach access. A volleyball

court, grill and hammock round out the private vacation or getaway


Don't settle for cramped "Coach" class duplexes when you

can vacation "First Class" at Sur La Mer. Save money by booking directly with the home owner. For referrals, and reviews contact us. We would be happy to provide satisfied guests who can speak to the Sur La Mer experience.

Pictures don't do this place justice

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this house. It was paradise. We had a college reunion there in September with five couples and we had plenty of room to spread out when we wanted to and come together for meals and gatherings in the big living room and kitchen. The views of the Ocean are spectacular from almost every room and the multiple decks. We had a blast at the volleyball court in the backyard. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook for a big group. And the ocean is literally just steps from the back door. No hotels in the area so it's not crowded at all. As a runner, I could run for miles on the beach and hardly see a soul. We will be back!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sur La Mer! We've rented a lot of beach houses over the years and this one was our favorite by far. The view of the sound side from the front of the house is as amazing as the ocean view from the back of the house. The location could not have been any more perfect. The house is beautiful, very clean, the kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are super comfortable, and Kristin is wonderful to work with. We have three children under 5 so the close proximity to the beach was also great. We will return again next year!

Annual Topsail Summer trip

  • 5 of 5

This home is one of our favorites. We have been coming to TI for nearly 20 years and have rented many homes; Sur La Mer has just the right amount of space and amenities for our families. I think this was our 4th or 5th time staying here. Kristin is wonderful to work with and is quick to answer any questions. The house is always clean and the kitchen is well supplied. We were pleased to find so many left spices and extras that we rarely had to run to the grocery. There are plenty of utensils and things you don't find in other homes. We did a few roasts and were surprised to find a meat thermometer. You wouldn't find that in other places. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of room for all with lots of seating around the table. We visited the turtle hospital in Surf City on Monday. Be aware they have limited hours and the wait can be quite long standing in the hot sun just to get in; not easy on little ones or elderly. We did learn a lot about the turtles and this year we were delighted to witness sea turtles hatching just a few houses down. We also watched dolphins from the covered porches. It was super hot outside so we only used the volleyball court once. If you are looking for a home away from home, a place for all ages and a place with plenty of parking, this is the place to rent.

Amazing Well Appointed Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to North Topsail and our stay at Sur La Mer. The layout of the home was perfect. It was beautifully furnished and had everything you needed. I truly felt like I was staying in a good friends home. The location was perfect and all rooms had a wonderful view of the beach. The multiple decks accommodated all weather. The kitchen was very well stocked. Having a full sized "beer fridge" in the lower level entry was an added bonus! The kind sized bed in the master suite was perfect, I slept great! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We made wonderful memories and plan to return.

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sur La Mer did not disappoint. We are a family of 3 adults and 2 small dogs. The house is clean and decorated beautifully. The kitchen is well equipped, and you have ocean views from almost every room. The owners are a joy to work with. The response time to any questions we had was immediate. The beach is a few steps away and very private. You will be very pleased if you choose this beautiful home. We will return
