Due to Hurricane Florence last September, many homes on Topsail Island are still undergoing repair which has created a shortage of vacation homes for rent on the island this summer. We just finished all of the repairs to Slip Away in early May and have once again advertised it for rent. Because we just came back on line, we have a number of prime summer weeks still available at reduced rates. If you are just now looking for a summer rental or if a rental you previously booked will not be available in time for your vacation, please consider Slip Away! Be sure to email us with any questions. We hope to hear from you soon and hope you will choose Slip Away for your Topsail island vacation this summer, and pray there are no hurricanes this year.
Slip Away was completely remodeled after the hurricane with a beautiful, new color scheme. An interior designer assisted us with the remodeling, and we believe the final product is beautiful and hope you will agree. Please contact us if you have any questions, and we will offer an attractive rate on any available week. We look forward to hearing from you!
Slip Away is a beautiful, spacious four bedroom, three bath beach house located on Topsail Island and provides the best of both worlds. A ninety second walk will take you to the ocean. A less than one minute walk in the other direction will lead you to the sound where you can watch spectacular sunsets. Bring your boat (30' limit) or jet ski and launch it using our private neighborhood boat ramp; then dock it for the duration of your stay at one of our 3 slips in the nearby canal. Lunch at the picnic table then enjoy sunbathing on the upper deck of the house or read a favorite book sitting in the porch swing in the shade of the lower deck.
We recommend you email us with your questions BEFORE you click "Request to Book" on the reservation page. Look for the "Send a Message" link below the "Request to Book" link to email us. Having contact with our tenants prior to reservation commitments allows us to be more responsive to your needs. References are available upon request.
Avoid the hassles and heartaches of dealing with a commission based real estate agent. With Slip Away, you speak directly with the owners as we are a true "Vacation Rental By Owner". Most listings you see on this site are handled by commission based agents who manage dozens if not hundreds of properties and thus can devote very little time to any one property.

The second floor consists of the living / dining / kitchen area and a fourth bedroom and bath. There are hardwood floors in the dining & kitchen areas, Berber carpet in the living room and bedrooms, and tile in the bathrooms. Lots of ceiling fans and windows provide beautiful views and breezes.

Local events that may interest you include: the Kiwanis Sun Fest (May), July 4 Fireworks, the King Mackerel Tournament (Aug.), the Snead's Ferry Shrimp Festival (Aug.), Autumn with Topsail (Oct.), & the Holiday Boat Flotilla (Nov.). During the summer visit the Sea Turtle Hospital, one of only a few such facilities in the US that cares for & rehabilitates injured sea turtles. Twice yearly you may observe the staff as they return rehabilitated turtles to the sea.
Area: Topsail Island is a family oriented beach. Visitors enjoy Topsail, returning year after year, because of the many miles of uncrowded sandy beaches. Perfect for swimming, walking, sunbathing, fishing, or simply relaxing. You will fall in love with the island. Our neighborhood is located on the southern end of Topsail. But don't limit yourself to the beach. Be sure to spend some time enjoying the sound where you will see interesting wildlife.
No Pet Policy: We can not make exceptions to our "no pet" policy. Many of our tenants choose Slip Away because of such. The nicer homes on the island likewise follow a "no pet" policy. There are countless examples of tenants coming into pet friendly houses to find soiled carpet and furniture, shedding hair, fleas, etc. We own two collies and a cat but do not bring them to the beach and will not rent a pet friendly house for our personal use.
