Any time is the right time for a little beach retreat! This comfy 1 BR condo has great views of the ocean and is steps from the surf on North Topsail Island away from the hustle and bustle. Perfect for a small family or couple, it sleeps up to 6 (4 recommended) with a Sleep Number queen bed in master (adjust to your liking), 2 bunks in the hall for little ones and a fold out couch.
We tried to think of everything - from your own code on the smart door lock (no keeping up with a key) to upgraded wifi, Google Home, and smart TV for streaming your Netflix shows.
You can watch the fishing boats from the balcony and then take a short drive to get fresh catch to cook up in the fully-equipped kitchen. We've even left you a few cookbooks for inspiration.
In this primarily residential part of Topsail island, the kids can play in the surf or the pool and couples can take a stroll on the beach under stars away from the bright lights and tourist traps - and the fishing is great from the surf, the sound, or the pier 2 miles away.
A short drive over the big bridge takes you to shopping and dining in Sneads Ferry. Drive down the beach to Surf City for more shopping, dining and entertainment, jet ski or kayak rentals. There are several boats that offer cruises around the island. (There's even a pirate cruise!)
Nearby Wilmington (35 miles) offers more fun and entertainment, fine dining, ghost tours (!), and a battleship to tour. Jacksonville is also a short drive for more shopping and dining options.
North Topsail Beach is known for shells, shark's teeth, dolphin sightings, an occasional whale sighting during migration. Here, the sky is dark and the moon is bright and you can see all the stars at night. Watch the sun rise over the ocean and then see it set over the sound. Bring some binoculars to watch the fishing boats or ships on the horizon.
Things to know -
No pets. Not just our unit, but the entire complex, so it's not negotiable.
Our unit is on the second floor and there is no elevator, so you'll have to climb stairs.
All the sheets and towels are provided at no additional cost.
We even have some beach towels, chairs, a cooler, an umbrella, and some sand toys, so you don't have to lug them from home or buy them.
Other amenities -
Outdoor grilling area
Do a little or do a lot. We hope this becomes your favorite beach retreat!
