It was a Grandview

  • 5 of 5

Nice house. Very short walk to access. Not too crazy about the waterbed (which needed water) in loft area, but I still slept good. Great view. Love the open layout of the house. Kitchen had everything we needed.

This property was worth every penny. The views were great and morning coffee on the deck a must! The kids loved everything the house had to offer. I fully intend to come back again! probably for a longer stay!

Beautiful view!

Loved this place! It was a great view and we loved leaving the doors open at night and listening to the waves! It was perfect for our family vacation! Only suggestion is updating the waterbed! It was a little uncomfortable sleeping in! Other than that loved it!!

Preserved from 1992

This was not worth the time or money. Yes its on the beach and yes you can see the water (which is abnormal due to all the 3 story houses around) but the yard has an old rope and broken pier pole under the stairs. You enter through the basement which has peoples discarded clutter. The wicker furnature is uncomfortable and it has a waterbed. The management company has several fees. My out of pocket costs were double what the initial advertised rate was. We concidered moving down the beach to the big motel but decided we had spent enough money and sucked it up for the weekend. The whole time we felt like we were walking on eggshells with this house.

Best family vacation we've had in years!

My family and I had a marvelous time staying at the "Grandview" for our summer vacation. The description of the house is quite accurate. There was ample room in the common area where we spent most of our time. The view from the master bedroom was beautiful. It's one of the few 2nd row homes in Surf City that has an unobstructed view of the ocean. We spent a lot of timeon the front balcony which had a great view of the ocean too. Also, there were plenty of indoor and outdoor toys for kids. Toys included: boogie boards, sand buckets, sand shovels, etc. All the appliances were fairly new and the furniture had that "beachy" vibe. The bunk beds in the kids room was a bit rickety but worked out fine. They do have a large collection of VHS tapes and a small collection of DVDs. Every bedroom came with a flat screen tv and either a DVD/VHS player or Satellite TV. Wifi was fast too!

Topsail Island is the perfect place if you want a nice, relaxing vacation without a lot of tourism. We ate at a couple of the areas restaurants though they do get really busy during the dinner time hour.

Restaurants that we tried:

The Beach Bunny: this is a great place if you want a nice sandwich and fries. We were seated immediately with no wait.

Daddy Mac's Beach Grille: tasty seafood fare; we arrived around 6pm and waited 45 minutes to be seated.

The management company, Access Realty did a great job with customer service. They were friendly all the times I spoke with them and would answer emails within an hour of contact. I would definitely rent with them again.

Nice house, a bit dated, but nothing horrible. Some small cosmetic work would go a long way, but hey, if you want 5 stars you have to be willing to pay for it! The bed in the loft is a soft-sided waterbed, which we weren't prepared for (neither were our backs). I think the water tubes needed more water. The bunkbeds in the kids room were a little shaky, but fine as long as the kids aren't climbing and playing on them. The pictures provide a very accurate idea of what you will get. Everything was clean. There were lots of dishes, glasses, silverware, cooking items available.

The view: Amazing.

The location: Perfect. We had looked at beachfront homes, and the prices were significantly higher. This was very convenient with beach access 4-5 houses down. No big deal at all. Also, we noticed that this was one of the few (and possibly ONLY) second row homes that actually had a view of the ocean. The large deck was inviting to sit on. Even when it rained, the view with all of the full glass windows didn't make you feel closed in.

If you are looking for a vacation spot that's full of life and entertainment, this isn't for you. If you are looking for a place to relax, with a little bit of tourism without all of the commercialism, you will like this area.

The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital is a must. Unfortunately, it rained a lot while we were here, so it was very crowded as everyone seemed to be getting bored being stuck inside for a few days. There is also a very small arcade which the kids enjoyed (they were a little disappointed there weren't any tickets to trade in for prizes), and we managed to get out spending only $6/kid. Younger kids will enjoy the many playgrounds on the island. My kids are 15, 11, and 9...so it's not easy to find places they all enjoy, but between restaurants, shops, the beach, etc everyone had a good time.

Wilmington is a short drive away, well worth it to visit for a day. The USS North Carolina was fantastic and the town itself very eclectic with something for all ages.
