About David Dondero

Doctor in private New Jersey practice. Live on a historic 37 acre farm with lots of animals. Grew up near Boston and have lived in 7 states during my lifetime.

David Dondero purchased this condo in 2005

Why David Dondero chose Topsail Island

Beautiful and comfortable condo with easy first floor access. Only 50 feet from the dunes and the boardwalk out to the beach. An outdoor shower is located on the boardwalk for getting rid of the sand and salt when returning from the beach. There is a lot of sandy beach in front of our buildings, and the waves are normally gentle and safe for children.

What makes this condo unique

Reasonably priced. Well appointed and maintained condo with great views and quick access to the beach and ocean. First floor via stairs or ramp.

Delightful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful retreat at the best beach there is! David Dondero was MORE than helpful and co-operative in the booking! The condo is tastefully decorated, beautiful color schemes, clean and well appointed in every way. Our week in September included lots of "weather" which was a delight to watch from the porch or from inside if there was too much weather. Enjoyed days of sunshine, too. Topsail Island has been a favorite of our family for years and we are delighted to find such comfortable accommodations. Thank you, David and Peggy, for sharing this great condo that's just a hop, skip and jump from the beach! We plan to be back!

We cannot review this property as the day before our vacation he called and it seems this condo had been double booked and he arranged for us to have condo 3213 in the same bldg. 3213 was very nice with a beautiful view of the ocean and overlooking the pool. We had a very enjoyable week and would definitely stay at Topsail Dunes again

Owner's Response: The property was double booked by the Trip Advisor Web site as the condo had already been reserved through the site. I took it on myself to call a friend who also has a rental and arranged for this couple to have their condo at the same amount as mine (a reduction from their normal rate). David

Great Location but needs a major cleaning

  • 2 of 5

The location of the condo was great! First floor, easy access to the pool and beach which made it very nice.

Unfortunately, upon arrival the condo was dirty.

The bathrooms had mold on the shower fixtures, hard water stains (which I can understand), and hair in the shower drain. The bathroom with a tub, the stopper to retain water had a screw missing and mold all under neath that fixture. I had to send my husband out immediately for cleaning products and a scrub brush. I cleaned both bathrooms and a good bit of mold came up other than the ones directly in the fixture. The kitchen sink and the faucet was moldy and dirty and that wiped right up.

The carpets were dirty, and the tile floors were dirty. In all corners and crevices is inches of dirt and dust. Heavy dust on the fan fixtures.

There were ants in the kitchen, however there were ant traps placed out when we arrived. We did our best to keep all food sealed tight and didn't seem to have a problem with ants getting in our food.

The location and the property is great. It is not my ideal vacation to come and immediately have to clean. I can take in-to account that its the beach however I was charged a cleaning fee. I don't want to see previous hair left in the drain from other guests or basic shower mold, or kitchen grime that can easily be removed with cleaner and a scrub brush.

I did email the owner, I have not heard back. My first inclination would be to check with the cleaning company to ensure they are properly cleaning. I do have pictures from my stay related to the cleanliness. I would have liked to have received a discount due to the overall condition of the property.

The beach was great! The pool was nice! This condo could receive a 5 due to the location and easy access. The area was also very safe and other people in the area were very friendly and safe as well along with easy parking access. For that reason, this condo could have received a 5. There were directions to have a parking pass and pool tags. I never was able to locate a parking pass but that did not seem to be an issue. One of the pool tags was broke and tied in a knot on arrival. nobody seemed to check for them.

All it would take is a renovation=replace the carpet, heavy duty clean the tile floors, replace bath fixtures. Have the cleaning company do a major clean/steam clean of the property professionally.

You have to bring all linens, sheets, towels, and kitchen towels, scrub brushes, soap, toilet paper, paper towel

Owner's Response: Unfortunately we had a substitute cleaning person doing the work for several weeks without our knowledge. All conditions were fixed during the third week in August except for the carpets were are scheduled for replacement in the off-season. As the amenities list notes, the tenant is responsible for linens, towels and paper products.

Great place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable condo with a well-equipped kitchen and lovely views. Appreciated being so close to the beach. Lots to keep us entertained in the evenings: cable, board games, books, dvds and wi-fi. Owner was readily available to answer questions. A visit to the Sea Turtle Rehab center is a must. We also went on a Paddle NC ecotour of the intracoastal waterway. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful to newbie kayakers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing beach vacation.

Great Oceanfront Location!

  • 4 of 5

Everything went smoothly with our vacation rental from start to finish. Dave was easy to work with and responded in a timely manner to phone and email contact. The location can't be beat! You can see the ocean from the sliding glass doors that open to the deck of the condo and the view made even mundane tasks, like prepping dinner, seem enjoyable! Loved the added touch of fans in every bedroom and the living room. The condo was clean upon arrival and there was plenty of room for six of us. The kids slept on the sofa bed and said it was surprisingly comfortable! I'm only giving it a 4 star rating due to condition of the flooring....there were some tiles that are cracked in the kitchen and the carpet looked a bit worn, but nothing that hindered our enjoyment of the condo. The beach was so close to the condo; in a matter of minutes you were sitting in the sand enjoying the view, and it was easy to run back up to the condo for a snack or lunch, if needed. You can't beat Topsail Island beaches! We found great seashells, including two full sand dollars and some conch shells, tons of shark teeth, and lots of sea glass. We were able to witness a sea turtle nest excavation, which is done 3-4 days after the hatch, and got to see 4 baby sea turtles excavated and released to the ocean. It was a wonderful trip!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments. I agree with the statement concerning the carpet and the tiles both of which are scheduled for replacement at the end of the season. David

Absolutley Wonderful !!!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend of 42 years and I stayed at this condo last spring, what a pleasure for both of us. The owner was so precious, what a delight to work out our arrangements with him.

Our vacation experience was so great we still reminisce about it, when we are together.

If you plan on North Topsail Beach for your vacation, I would recommend this condo, the view from the balcony is astounding no matter what time of day or night.

You have great areas to visit within easy driving distance or you can just lounge on the beach. Justing sitting on the balcony with a drink and a game of Yatzee is fun too.

Thank you, Dave for more precious memories!
