Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms 3 Full Bathrooms Right on the Beach

You can't get closer to the beach than this! The beach is at the end of an expansive well furnished deck. Views and ocean breezes are phenomenal. Sit on one of the quaint benches at the top of the stairs leading down to the beach and you have found the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sunrise over the ocean, the activities on the beach by day and the stars at night -- and just a few steps down and you're on a perfect pristine beach with a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. There are two outdoor showers and a two person hot tub on the deck. Have a soak, relax and take in the beauty all around you.

A comfortably furnished, well decorated main floor is just one flight of steps up from ground level. Two of the four bedrooms and full bath with tub and shower are off of the living room on this floor. One of these guest rooms off of the living room is a second master bedroom with its own bathroom. A large top floor master suite has its own private balcony with spectacular views. There's even a large jacuzzi in this master with its own stunning views of the ocean.

There is a fourth, small bedroom with two twin beds on the ground floor entered from a clean garage -- some guests have said it's good choice for teens, college aged kids, or two adult(s) who like being on their own with a little extra privacy and quietude while the living room, kitchen and a bath are just one flight up.

Linens and towels are provided at no additional charge and you will even find all the beds made for you upon your arrival. (No need to rent sheets and towels as you must with most beach house rentals).

A very clean, coastal chic environment is ready for you to just kick back and enjoy. It's all yours, a place to call your own in a uniquely enjoyable beach home called Blue Roof.

The kitchen was remodeled in January 2017 and is fully equipped, with beautiful granite counter tops, lots of cabinets, a pantry, modern appliances, a variety of new, clean pots and pans, cooking and serving utensils, and nice place settings for all. It adjoins the dining area.

There is cable tv and wireless internet throughout.

Very nice linens and towels are provided at no additional cost and all of the beds will be made for you upon arrival! (check most other beach houses that may expect you to rent your linens and towels)

About Nancy and George Bolts

We are a happily married couple with one twenty-four year old daughter. We have lived and built successful careers for ourselves in six different cities over the course of our 39 year marriage -- in Kansas City, Houston, NYC-Fairfield, CT, Dallas, and Raleigh, NC. We now live in the historic district of downtown Wilmington, NC. In the off season we enjoy being on Topsail Island.

We have two Labradoodles named Zeus and Sandy who we are crazy about and two very spoiled kitties named Gabe and Tuck. We enjoy walking, either on the beach right behind Blue Roof or to the Wilmington's classic riverfront which is only three blocks from our home. During the spring, fall and summer we love sharing Blue Roof with vacationers from near and far and extending a welcoming and carefree holiday to each and every one.

Nancy enjoys reading and interior decorating. George enjoys gardening, home repairs, maintaining our 125 year old home and projects in and around Blue Roof.

Nancy and George Bolts purchased this house in 2009

Why Nancy and George Bolts chose Ocean City Beach

When I first crossed the theshold into this home I felt a positive energy and just paused to take in its well designed, welcoming environment, right on the beach. Sold!

What makes this house unique

Before us, Blue Roof was owned by a renowned builder both on this island as well as up and down the southern coast. When he came upon a vintage beach cottage, he fell in love with its unique charms and proximity to both town and beach. The cottage had seen better years, but he purchased it and set about renovating it to its former glory. It ultimately became his retirement home and center for enjoyment with his wife, their kids and grandkids -- which he did for years. He had created a distinctive home with splendid use of space and unique special touches. When finished with his labor of love, a true sparkling jewel of a home appeared. Now it is our home and we feel like we have that legacy to uphold as we continue to treasure Blue Roof year after year.

Car: necessary

Welcome to Blue Roof beach house on North Topsail Beach, North Carolina! It's a little more than 2 miles to Surf City where you will find great shops and restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisine types and atmospheres. If you'd like our recommendations just let me know!

Shopping in Surf City Crab yields a fabulous selection of fresh, beautiful seafood just unloaded off the boats of local fisherman. Blue Roof has a large deck on which to sit and sunbathe and watch for dolphins frolicking just off the shore. People enjoy visiting the Topsail Island Sea Turtle Sanctuary that is nearby and one August a sea turtle actually made its nest right at the bottom of our stairs! (and we worked together with those who volunteer to protect them) A walk on the beach at nighttime is a special treat -- you will be accompanied by scurrying little crabs for one thing. Children seem to find this especially amazing and memorable. Take a dip in the two person hot tub that is maintained year round for your enjoyment. Those in the master suite have their own large jacuzzi tub and will enjoy its private balcony. Blue Roof is perfect to have a really romantic getaway or a family can stay and create the best vacation together ever. Many of our guests return year after year as they have come to see Blue Roof as their own beach home away from home. They are fond of its unique charm and coastal personality. We hope you will be our next enchanted guests! Sincerely, Nancy and George

Wonderful Get away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach house! We had a wonderful time beach combing and store is close enough to get what you need. The hot tub was just right for us. (2 adults) We had one minor issue and the owner took care of it right away. We slept to the sound and view of the ocean. The view was breath-taking. It was just right for our family of four. Exactly what we needed!

Awesome views and amazing deck!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay! The house was a perfect fit for us. If you are considering this home and traveling with a toddler it’s a great pick! Very easy to contain a kiddo in the living/kitchen area. Plus the deck has gates to keep exploring kids from getting down onto the beach solo (also great for a dog!). The views of the ocean cannot be beat. Nancy and George are great hosts. Highly recommend :).

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay in this house was perfect. We were so impressed by this very clean,welcoming house and we felt right at home. Everything we needed to enjoy our vacation was provided. The view of the ocean from the deck is breath taking. The easy access to the beach allowed us to enjoy long walks searching for

shells and other treasures . We also enjoyed dining out at nearby restaurants,

cooking in the well stocked kitchen and shopping at the local shops.

Planning on returning soon!

As always "Perfect"

  • 5 of 5

I've been vacationing at Blue Roof for over 7 years and each time it gets better. The place is ideal for me and my husband and our two golden retrievers. The house is located right on the beach with a huge outside deck. One of my favorite things about the deck (besides the hot tub) is the fact that you can sit at the end of the walkway and essentially overhang the dunes and view the beach in all directions.

The house is always clean and well maintained. Each time we come it seems like new additions have been made. For example, new appliances, new cookware, new furnishings, and new decking. The house has an upstairs master bedroom totally isolated from the main floor (with a jacuzzi) with its own separate deck which makes it ideal for relaxation.

Nancy and George have been great throughout the years in addressing any issues that may arise (which have been very few). For example, on this visit a new lock box had been installed which was difficult to open. When they were called George offered to pay for our dinner while we waited for him to come to help us gain access into the house.

Blue Roof is truly one of the treasures on Topsail Island.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Words fail to adequately describe the perfection of this home. We visit at least twice yearly (sometimes more), for two week stays and have done so for several years. Upon entering Blue Roof, there is a feeling of calm & relaxation which envelop me. Featuring a living room and kitchen on the main floor, along with sliding doors, afford the opportunity to both view and hear the ocean. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking if one desires. We prefer to eat at "home" and enjoy the sound of the waves as our background music. The bedrooms on this floor are also impeccable, with one opening onto the deck & offering a view of the ocean.The large deck off the first floor leading to the beach is beyond perfection. There is ample deck furniture for family gatherings. Simply stepping outside surrounds ones senses with a calm. The sitting area at the end of the deck allows me to enjoy my morning coffee while watching sunrise & occasionally watch dolphins as they frolic in the ocean. The light, airy feel of the home is perfect. The upstairs bedroom is my oasis. The master suite is expansive & features a jacuzzi tub in addition to the large shower & recently renovated bathroom. One can fall asleep to the ocean waves, relax in the large jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine & a good book, sit on the upper deck and enjoy sunrise. We love to sit outside and embrace the ocean breeze, allow the sounds of the waves to fill our souls.This home is truly ocean front, the beach is only steps away & perfect for long walks, collecting shells, holding hands and cherishing the time together as a couple or a family. The island area is a small community in which I feel very much at home. After some time on the beach, a convenient outdoor shower allows me to wash the sand away before entering the home. There is a hot tub available on the front deck. Words alone cannot express the little piece of heaven that we find Blue Roof to be and how much we appreciate the opportunity afforded to us to share in the experience. Nancy & George are extremely responsive to questions, needs or concerns. We are appreciative of the sanctuary they have created that allows others to experience the perfection of Blue Roof.
