*1 JUNE & 1 AUG WK* 'SEA LA VIE'-OCEANFRONT DUPLEX - 3BR + ALCOVE W QBED, 2.5 BA

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in North Topsail Beach - Sea La Vie

3 Brs + Ground Floor Alcove With Q Bed, 2.5 Baths, Beautiful Ocean Views,

OCEANFRONT! Beautiful newly furnished, immaculately maintained duplex ready for your enjoyment.

If booked or you need more room, check out sister property 'Up On The Roof' - VRBO #553663 and #512985.

Come see why our guests from our first rental season declared North Topsail Beach their 'new favorite NC beach' and Sea La Vie their 'new favorite Beach House'! Your 'best beach vacation EVER' is waiting for you at Sea La Vie! Don't miss it!

Enter from the carport on the ground level. This entry level houses 'The Alcove' with a comfortable queen bed and 32in 'smart' TV with Netflix. Especially popular with teenagers but comfortable enough for adults!

One story up is the main living area including a living room with 60in flat screen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix) and plenty of comfortable seating including a queen sleeper sofa. The dining area has a table with seating for 8 and the well-stocked kitchen has a bar with 5 barstools. There is a half bath on this floor and, most importantly, an oceanfront deck off the living room with a table for 6 and the walkway to the beach! There are also 4 incredibly comfortable teak rockers on this porch. A short walk down the walkway and you are in the sand!

The top floor has an oceanfront master suite with a very comfortable king bed, 39in flat screen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix) and private bath with shower. Doors from this bedroom lead to the top deck for the best views of the ocean by day, stars by night. This is a great spot for sunbathing on the 4 lounge chairs and stargazing at night!

The other two bedrooms are also found on this level. Bedroom 2 has another comfortable queen bed and 32in flatscreen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix). The 3rd bedroom, or 'Bunk Room', is perfect for the kids with two sets of bunk beds and a 32in flatscreen 'smart' TV (cable + Netflix). There is a full bath in the hallway serving these two bedrooms with a tub/shower.

Other great features include a gas grill (located in carport) for grilling fresh local seafood or steaks. There is an outdoor hot/cold shower for rinsing off the sand on your way in from a day relaxing and playing on the beach. There are loads of games, books and recent magazines for your enjoyment as well.

'Crowded' is not part of our vocabulary on this part of North Topsail Beach. There is no public beach access close by, just private access for the homes lining the beach. There is plenty of room for your family to spread out chairs and blankets, play corn hole, bocci ball or paddle ball, throw the football or frisbee and play your favorite beach tunes, without disturbing, or being disturbed, by others. Rest easy as the kids play in the surf, protected by a sand bar about 30-40 feet out, or in the tidal pools that may appear late in the day. Enjoy great surf fishing around the posts of a former pier north of the house or surf and boogie board the waves. All in all, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the long days of summer. And by summer, we mean May through October, at least!

Why Amy Spraker chose North Topsail Beach

We love our cast concrete oceanfront vacation home on North Topsail Beach. It's strong, quiet and energy efficient, and the gorgeous views of the beach don't hurt either!

Simply the perfect Topsail vacation home

  • 5 out of 5
This house is the perfect home for your Topsail vacation. North Topsail is so quiet and peaceful and this home is setup to allow you to unwind and relax. The beds are super comfortable, the furnishings are top notch and the kitchen has high-end appliances and cookware that you won’t find in most rentals. All the TV’s are connected to Netflix, which allowed our child to watch her favorite shows during breaks from the beach. The beach is very quiet, even on the busy weekends. The owners really went out of their way to make sure we had the best vacation possible and we will be renting this home for years to come. Thanks again for everything!

Potentially fabulous undermined by dishonesty

  • 1 out of 5
Arrived on August 24 with a forewarning that there was damage to the carpet in 2 upstairs bedrooms. Upon inspection on the master bedroom I discovered water damage, rotting wood, and a smell of mold/mildew under the carpet, within the padding, and on the floor boards. The owners were contacted immediately. I was told there was no way it could be addressed because it was a Sunday so they offered to move us to a property 2 houses down; the caveat was that we would have to leave a day earlier than previously agreed. This offer was reviewed with my house mates, agreed upon, and travel plans were altered. At the time I specifically asked the owner if we would be reimbursed for the day. In return, she asked for my address and told me a check would be in my mailbox by the time I returned to my home. When I returned there was no check. I contacted them twice via text and finally received a phone call from the owner. He stated that I was not owed any refund but agreed to pay if I wrote a favorable review on this site. I viewed this proposition as extortion and told him as much. As we stand I have yet to receive an amount that is equivalent to the cost of a stay at a 4 star hotel in reimbursement. Thus far I have contacted the owners again and VRBO Security, who told me there is not much that they can do. This whole scenario is unfortunate; on one side is a set of owners who refuse to honor a verbal and written agreement and on the other a company who refuses to do more than send a letter. If you value good faith, this is not a couple I would work with. Also, I would take a hard look at VRBO because they seem more interested in protecting the owner over the traveler.

Owner's Response: Fabulous was the word that this guest used to describe the property, weather and their stay. He said they especially liked the outdoor hot shower and great ocean access and views. Yet still he chose to post a negative review - it was all about seeking a refund otherwise, according to him, we would be sorry because he would post an extremely negative review. We made a decision not to be bullied by threats of a negative review. He called and claimed there was mold and/or mildew in the house which aggravates his health issues. After immediately (within 45 min of his early arrival) moving the guest to our more expensive property, we had a professional carpet restoration company assess the situation only to find that the guest's claims were wrong (we have supporting documentation). We addressed his concerns promptly, offered a partial refund, offered to extend his stay at no charge - we also spoke with his credit card company and VRBO. We enjoy our vacation rental business and our goal is to exceed the expectations of all our guests. We hope that future guests will compare this review to all the other positive reviews we have on Sea La Vie and our other vacation homes (VRBO #s 553663 & 512985).

Ideal in Every Way

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful week at "Sea La Vie". As advertised, it was well appointed, clean, comfortable/versatile and its location [right on the beach] was fantastic. We definitely intend to return. The property owners were great to deal with too.

My two sons with their wives and a 2 year old grandbaby stayed at this delightful rental. We were extremely pleased with this rental. We were particularly impressed with the how amazingly well the kitchen was stocked with cooking and serving utensils as we wanted to cook family meals. I particularly loved the sleeping alcove downstairs. Nice firm bed!
We will definitely go back!

Excellent Beach House

  • 5 out of 5
The house was more than expected. It was a last minute holiday trip with husband and two dogs. The house was clean, kitchen well stocked, beachfront, and the living area was an open floor plan. A great beach house and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Quick Get-Away

  • 5 out of 5
We love Topsail Island and made a last minute decision to make a quick, weekend trip. Sea La Vie was perfect for our family. The owners were fabulous about accommodating our short stay and answering any questions we had. The house is lovely. I have stayed at several beach houses, and I was impressed with how clean it was. The kitchen was also surprising well-stocked. We enjoyed both the beach front location and the Netflix enabled TVs inside. Thank you for a lovely weekend away.
