Perfect location, but you get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

Here are the pros and cons of this house:


*Surf City location was convenient to dining and shopping and the beach was clean and not too crowded. Much nicer than the North Topsail end of the island in my opinion

*Proximity to beach access--it's literally right across the street so just a short walk for the little ones at a cheaper cost than oceanfront

*Unobstructed ocean views--there's no house directly in front of this house, so you can see the ocean from the deck, kitchen, living room and master bedroom (via a sliding door?!)


*This house is not constructed well. Nothing is level or proportionate--my husband couldn't sit on the toilet in the jack and jill bathroom. His knees would hit the vanity doors in front of him. Even I, at 5'6", found it more comfortable to sit at an angle because of the tight space.

*In addition, the ceilings are the lowest height possible. I'm not sure how it even passed an inspection, but at my height, I could touch the ceilings standing on bare, flat feet. My husband, who is 6'4", cracked his head numerous times on 2 of the ceiling fans. This is a serious safety hazard.

*The hot water heater must not be set very high because getting hot water was next to impossible. I took showers with full on hot water, no cold added at all, and it was not hot.

*Having just a cold water hose/shower outside was not pleasant, especially for the baby. It made getting sand off very difficult.

*TV service is provided by Dish Network and the service went out at the slightest drizzle, which was constant! You may not come to the beach to watch TV, but when it rains, there's not much else to do, especially since there's not a game to be had in this house. On the plus side, the DVD player did work so we could grab a Redbox during the thunderstorm.

*Might sound nitpicky, but the kitchen could use more utensils. This house sleeps 9, but only has silverware service for 8. Being there's 6 in our family, we had to wash dishes after each meal, just to have enough forks/spoons for the next meal. Not a chore you want to have to do any more than necessary while on vacation! It's a cheap fix that seems overlooked.

*All the kitchen cabinet doors are sticky and dirty and the dining table chairs were sticky as well.

*There's a bad, musty smell in the small bedroom with fish decorations everywhere. It was so overwhelming to me that it made my head hurt, though fortunately didn't bother my kids who had to sleep there.

You get what you pay for!

Wonderful location!

Ocean view--we watched a shrimp boat one morning circle around laying out his nets. Excellent access to the beach.
