About Ted Waltz
We are originally from Kennett Square PA which is near Philadelphia. Debbie grew up in Williamsville NY which is a small town near Buffalo NY and moved to Kennett Square after going to college in the Philadelphia area. Ted grew up and lived most of his life in Kennett Square prior to moving to North Carolina. Teds parents both worked in the school system in Kennett (his father as a teacher and his mother as the school nurse). Ted was a Mushroom Farmer (that region is known for being one of the largest producers of fresh Mushrooms in the world). We both still have family in Kennett Square and in Buffalo but they enjoy coming to visit us in North Carolina (especially in the winter!). Our three children are grown now and one is in Vet School, one is a middle school teacher and the third is studying engineering. We currently live on a small farm outside of Raleigh.
Ted Waltz purchased this Townhouse in 2013
Why Ted Waltz chose Surf City
We purchased this home in April 2013 because we owned one of the other town homes in this small block of 5 town homes. It is a fantastic location and a place to come and get away for a little sun sand and relaxation. We have been coming to Topsail for 30 years and our three children have grown up enjoying the beaches and looking for sharks teeth in the sands of Surf City. We used to travel here from the Philadelphia area because the beaches were so clean and private. We've always felt it was worth the trip and met many who traveled much further than us. Topsail is a wonderful family place but it is also a place where fishermen and surfers can share the beach and enjoy the long season of warm crystal clear water. In the fall we would stay out all night and wait on the beach with our children for the turtle nests to hatch. Vacationing in Topsail has always been worth the trip. After 30 years we finally bought our first property (the middle unit in the block of town homes) in Aug 2011. We have had our eye on this property (as an end unit) since we purchased out other one. This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm and inviting too. Since we know Topsail with charm you, we made a real effort to renovate this vacation home and its bedding and furnishing so that you will definitely want to return! From our early reviews, we think we hit the mark!
What makes this Townhouse unique
We love that we can walk to the beach front restaurants and the fishing pier. We also love that we have a great view of the ocean from our deck sitting in the hi top chairs. It is really nice to have a private beach access and not to have to cross the street to get to the beach. It really feels like beach / ocean front without ocean front prices and that makes it very affordable for people to get a high quality rental in a fantastic location. …. And if you are a family that likes to travel with your pet, this is definitely the place for you!
No smoking inside or on decks.
With payment of $150 pet fee per pet, per week

Perfect location steps from the beach! Everything we needed was included in this home. Sunrise from the deck was spectacular everyday. We enjoyed every minute of our time.
We stayed for the 2nd time this summer. Nice location to everything. The townhome was cleaned and had plenty of space.
Great as always!!
3rd time staying here and loved it!! The updated painting and flooring and kitchen backsplash were a nice surprise. Can't beat the location, ocean views and beach access and easy bike ride to great restaurants!! The best thing too is that you can bring your dog. Can't wait to come back.
Our third stay in four years
We love this property and return every summer we can. This year we found it nicely refreshed with new paint, new flooring and carpet. The kitchen remains well equipped and we were happy with the addition of a new Keurig for brewing coffee. The condo is comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay. Beach access is awesome. The owner, Mr. Waltz, is a real gentleman and always so accommodating. It’s wonderful to have a beach location that is also dog friendly, as we always travel with our golden retriever. My one suggestion would be that the master bedroom king mattress be replaced; it’s as if you roll downhill towards the center of the bed from both sides. At least for us, it was uncomfortable. I mention this only because I know Mr. Waltz takes his renters’ comfort seriously, and were I in his position, I would want the feedback to be able to make improvements. As always, another wonderful week on Topsail Island! You were right, Mr. Waltz, the new bridge is awesome and boasts and incredible view of the town and gorgeous coastline. We will keep returning! Thank you.
Property always looks great and is kept up.
It is always a pleasure staying here!
Very good--the only complaint is the upper rim of the toilets hadn't been cleaned in a while.
