Why David Dondero chose North Topsail Beach
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We had such a great time here at this condo, easy access to the pool an the beach, the owner (David) is very nice. The only complaint I have is the condo should be cleaner when new guests come in and updated tv's would be nice but everything else was great. Overall it was awesome!!!
Relaxing summer retreat
We are annual renters and love this condo. The beach and pool are 50’ away. Condo is clean and decorated beautifully. The renovation after the hurricane is beyond expectations. The owner is very easy to communicate with. We will definitely be back next year!
Thank goodness we love Topsail Beach.
We were due to arrive on on 6/22/19 and I had not heard anything from David so I sent him a text asking for the door code and if there was any chance of us getting in earlier, he responded with the code and said we could go over the other when we talked the next day... I called David the next day and he informed me that there was still work to be done on the inside of the condo, however due to a language barrier/poor cell service I did not understand that he was meaning that the work needed to occur while we were there. When we arrived at the condo around 1:00 pm (as he said we could) I ran into the foreman of the construction company and he informed me that the would need to get in the condo while we were there to finish up at least 6 hours of work to be done over 2 days. I called David and told him I was not happy about it and that we did not check in until 4 to allow for them time to finish up the painting they were doing. I told him that I was not comfortable with contractors being there while we were occupying the unit, his response was "then you will have to find somewhere else to stay" keep in mind I was there with my wife and 3 kids, so we had no choice but to stay. I asked him to verify what days the contractors would need to be there, which he never did. I approached the contractor myself to see what days he was going to need to be there and he said they would just wait until we check out for the week the finish up what they needed to do, thank goodness he at least understood. Pros: New Floors on everything expect bathrooms, new paint, new furniture. Cons: Bathrooms were dirty, Drain on tub was broken, missing a screw that helped hold it in place I managed to get it open and told the kids not to touch it. The one closet that it has was full of junk, dirty space heaters and fans and the vacuum cleaner, absolutely no place to hang clothes, dryer vent had not been cleaned for who knows how long. There were no toilet paper holders and the towel rod in the master bathroom was missing. We will not be returning to this unit. We love Topsail and will be returning next year, were were able to reserve a condo in the complex we had stayed for 3 years (owners stopped renting it after Florence hit). One additional note the walkways on the complex were filthy, cigarette butts and garbage all over the only day we seen them us a blower was the day we checked in.
Nice spot for a beach vacation. Steps away from Beach and Pool. Has all the amenities one could need for a week's vacation (full kitchen, washer/dryer, TV). Great Views from Kitchen, living room and balcony. The floors were set to be replaced after our stay so with that upgrade this condo will be the spot to stay!
We’ve stayed at a few different beaches and condos. This one is the best ever!!! The condo was clean and provided all the amenities needed. The convenient location makes beach and pool access easy. 50’ from either one!!! The beach is so close that our kids could come and go from the condo freely. The ocean sounds and view were great! We will definitely be returning to this one for a long time!!!
Thanks Dave for a great experience!!!

Exactly what a beach getaway needs to be
The condo was clean when we arrived. It could stand some new tv’s. But the fact is you go to the beach to see the beach. That being said the short walk to the beach or the pool was perfect. Also the short walk to the pool was perfect as well. The only issue with staying at this location is if you want to go out to eat be prepared for a 30 minute drive. I have never been to topsail till this year. I plan on going back l. It is a safe family oriented beach.
Topsail island is a 26 mile long barrier island composed of three
towns: Surf City, Topsail Beach, and North Topsail Beach in which
this property is located. With only a few feet separating the
condominium complex from the sand dunes, beach and ocean, a wide
variety of activities are possible including the following:
bathing on a wide stretch of uncrowded beach - fishing off the
beach, nearby pier, or charter boat - parasailing - scuba diving -
snorkling - kayaking - windsurfing - water skiing - shelling - shark
teeth hunting - etc.
Nearby places of interest include: public golf courses - minature
golf - small water park - Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation
Center - riding stables - jet ski rentals - Camp Lejeune base tour -
gift shops - restaurants.
A nice day trip is to Wilmington and the Battleship USS North
The mainland towns of Sneads Ferry and Holly Ridge offer numerous
markets, liquor stores, etc.
Finally, enjoy some of the best sunrises and sunsets you have ever
seen from your own balcony!!
