About Nancy & Jerry Long

Jerry & Nancy Long - from Appomattox, Virginia.

Owners for 20 years. Love to decorate and remodel. We spend our winters looking for new ways to make our vacation rental property more cozy for your stay.

Nancy & Jerry Long purchased this condo in 1993

Why Nancy & Jerry Long chose Topsail Island

We chose North Topsail Beach for its peaceful island lifestyle; no hustle or bustle. Enjoy calm, lazy days in the sun without traffic jams or tourist traps. We love the friendly neighborhood amosphere.

What makes this condo unique

We love the immediate access to the beach - no lobby to pass through. We love being able to see the water from every room in the house. Our first view of whales traveling by was while we were lying in bed looking out the window one early Sunday morning. The dolphins playing in front of our windows keep us entertained all year long.

Perfect anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was idyllic! Even better than pictured, amazing view of the ocean from all parts of the unit, even when prepping dinner I could see and hear the waves lapping up on shore. Extremely clean and bright and all the furniture and bed were comfortable (especially the recliner, a great spot for a nap :)). My husband has asthma and is very sensitive to allergens or stuffy vacation spots and he had zero issues the entire trip. From the moment we walked in we felt at rest and it was honestly one of the best beach vacations we have ever had. Even a great view of the sound off the back walkway, very easy access to the beach, and just a short 20 minute drive into Surf City for anyone who wants more to do. We went to the turtle hospital one day and it was awesome, highly recommended (only $10 total for both of us at the adult price). The seclusion and privacy of this part of Topsail was exactly what we wanted and loved that it is completely residential and quiet. A perfect 5 year anniversary!

Also, the owners are amazing! Hurricane Matthew hit the coast the day of our expected arrival and Nancy contacted us every step of the way with weather updates and refunded us for two nights that we couldn't make it for due to the hurricane with no questions asked. They were responsive to any questions we had and were so pleasant. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Dancing Dolphins :)

Beautiful condo with a great balcony view of Dolphins swimming

  • 5 of 5

My mother, daughter and I were looking for the perfect place to spend a week by the ocean and we found it! We saw dolphins swimming 2 days and found about 200 shark teeth! The condo was well equipped and decorated very nicely to make our vacation easy and relaxing. Nancy was great with communication! She wished us a happy vacation on the first day and told us to contact her with any problems. Thank you again Nancy and Jerry! We look forward to returning soon.

Great Place!!

  • 4 of 5

This property was just as pictured! Loved the big open windows overlooking the ocean! Nancy was easy to work with! And we were fortunate enough to see a nest of sea turtles hatch just down the beach!!!! We had a great stay on Topsail Island. The air conditioning worked great in the living room so you just need to keep the bedroom doors open to keep them cool. Also the water pressure was low but that may have been due to us having 6 people and doing laundry, dishes, showers, etc. Overall, this was an excellent place for the very reasonable cost!! Thanks for letting us enjoy your home for a week!!

Owner's Response: Nichole, thanks for letting us know that there was a problem with the air conditioning in the bedrooms. We came down to the beach and called in the repairman. Come to find out, the vents had been redirected and all we needed to do was readjust the air flow. Wish you had let us know about this while you were here and we could have made your stay more comfortable with this simple fix.

One of the very first things that we saw while unpacking was a pod of dolphins playing in the surf!! The condo was very clean and had everything that we needed to have a great week of sun and surf. The owners were very easy to work with and made sure that we had whatever we needed.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at this very comfortable and clean top-floor condo. It's a big plus that this condo is located in the only building in the development with an elevator, especially for moving luggage and groceries. The living room and master bedroom have access to a deck which looks out onto the ocean - although we didn't happen to see any dolphins, the sight and sound of the ocean was a pleasure. My husband and I found the queen bed very comfortable. This was our first time visiting Topsail Island, and we were very happy with the condo's location in quiet, laid back North Topsail Beach. The beach was clean and never crowded.

Restaurants: We had a great dinner at the Beach Shop and Grill in Topsail Beach. We had a bad experience (food and service) at the Shrimp House in North Topsail, although it does have a very nice view of the ocean.

It's worth the hour's drive to Wilmington; we visited the very lovely Airlie Botanical Garden, and then had an enjoyable lunch (Elijah's) on the Cape Fear Riverfront in the historic downtown - the river walk there has lots of interesting shops and restaurants, and the Battleship North Carolina is close by. We enjoyed the neighborhoods full of beautiful architecture and historic mansions.There's a lot to do and see there to make a day of.

Thanks to Nancy and Jerry for a very pleasant stay!

Amazing Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely perfect for my family. We thoroughly enjoyed it and loved that is on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean and with easy access to a pool too. We definitely plan to go back to Topsail (favorite NC beach) and hope to stay at the condo again!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo!
