About The Owner

Vice President of Investments with a 21 year old son and 24 year old daughter. Native of Massachusetts. Lived in Raleigh, NC for 28 years.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose North Topsail Beach

North Topsail Beach in my opinion is one of the last unspoiled beaches on the east coast. It has been my family's getaway since my kids were young. We could let the kids roam and have fun without having to worry about them. It's a great, safe family oriented beach with lots of memories.

What makes this house unique

We purchased this house because it sits on the dunes almost 30 feet above sea level. The views are spectacular. We have sunrise views over the ocean and sunset views over Chadwick Bay and the Intracoastal. The beach is a 90 second walk away from the house and the boat dock and kayaking is right behind the house. The location is perfect for my beach and water loving family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

First of all, we'd like to thank you so much for allowing us to stay Saturday night. You didn't have to do that, and we realize that it inconvenienced you.

We love your house. It is beautiful and you are so lucky to have it. You have really been blessed. We had a great time and plan on coming back to North Topsail next year. The elevator is essential because my 82 year old mother came with us and she wouldn't have been able to walk the steps. Thank you again.

  • 5 of 5

Always a welcome stay, the home is well stocked with your everyday things needed... our family has been here two different occasions and always we have a wonderful stay... everyone had their very own bed and seclusion when needed... we had movie 🎥 nights, game time and much more, just a lil walk to the beach 🏖 to relax and soak up the sun... even in November!!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time and thanks for being a repeat client. I'm sorry to hear about the cleaning this year. We strive to provide the best possible guest experience and this is disturbing information. I have already contacted the cleaning service to let them know. Can you please be more specific as to what was not clean or what issue you had in the house. The owner of the cleaning service would like to know so she can address it with her crews. Thanks for your help. Tim

Wonderful family time!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first visit to North Topsail Beach and our family had a fantastic stay at Dolphin Shores. This is a very private area and a wonderful spot for the 10 of us. The elevator came in handy as both of my parents have trouble with stairs. For those needing handicapped accessible areas planning a stay at this beach, keep in mind the beach access close to the house has lots of steps. There is an open access area but it's probably a half a mile down the road. Cheryl was so helpful in suggesting we contact the Town Hall/Police Station to get a beach wheelchair for my Dad. This is a great way to allow those who have trouble walking access to the beach. The Police Department staff was amazing. They also have a beach walker and he loved using that as well because the beach area is so flat. The house was very clean with open living areas and the kids enjoyed having their rooms/space. We had breakfast on the screened in porch area almost every morning and my Mom loved sitting there with her coffee and her devotionals. Our whole family got to use the hot tub and it is in a wonderful location off the deck. Almost anywhere you turn, there's a beautiful view of the ocean or of the inlet areas. For us, this was a perfect vacation home! A couple changes should be noted - the grill is charcoal and not gas; also, the beach house does not have working bathrooms or showers. Overall, we would definitely come back to stay at this beautiful home! Thank you, Cheryl for all of your help. ;-) ~Kim Radford

This was our sixth year in a row to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We don't want to go anywhere else. The layout, the location, the amenities, and the manager are all that good. Fantastic views, comfortable spaces, and a 90 second walk to the beach. The owner has been so kind to us, and whenever we needed help (we somehow broke a faucet handle off one year), the manager has someone over in no time. The kitchen is a chef's dream and has everything you need; we don't go out to eat because cooking here is great. The elevator helps get groceries to the top floor, and the extra refrigerator on the first floor makes packing cold drinks for the beach easy. Thank you for allowing us to stay here; we will back next year.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, and my group had a wonderful time on Topsail Island! The owner was extremely helpful and understanding, even when one of our group got there a little early. We all feel very refreshed and relaxed after our week on the beach, and most of us didn't want to leave. Thanks for such a great time!

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We came with our family of 6 and another family of 5. There was plenty of room, did not feel on top of each other. Beach access was easy, do not let the short walk deter you from considering this property. This time of the year was quiet, I guess our spring break is not at same time as others around the area. Cheryl is easy and pleasant to work with. We did not have any issues that needed to be solved while we were there and had no doubt she would have had we needed it. When we consider coming back to the Outer Banks, this will be at the top of our list. Grocery store back across the bridge is easy to get to. Plenty of room to cook and relax. Beautiful view both ways. We saw why this is called dolphin shores, we were graced with a morning of watching a pod of dolphins up and down the shoreline.
