Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in North Topsail Beach - Topsail Dunes

1 Bed, 1 Bath Oceanfront Condo

Be one of the first to enjoy this newly remodeled oceanfront condo located on Topsail Island. This predominantly residential island condo retreat overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and has been gutted and updated with all new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, tile etc. In fact, everything in it will be new and waiting to be enjoyed for the first time by a couple and/or small family (sleeps 2-4). Located on the third floor of building 3 (the only building to have an elevator), will guarantee you a captivating view and ensures easy move-in, move-out. Spend your days enjoying the unspoiled beaches, swimming in the over-sized beach-side pool or play tennis on the adjoining courts but if that doesn't interest you, you could always relax on the deck with a glass of wine and a good book; the options are endless! With sightseeing, fishing and good restaurants just a short distance away, you'll have everything needed to make this a memorable vacation, guaranteed!

About Jennifer McCall

A recently retired native of England, I live in Rochester, New York year round but have been visiting the Topsail/Surf City area for years and have made many lifelong friends here. Over the years, I could always be quoted as saying that NC has the best beaches in the world and I still believe that to this day; hence my purchase

Jennifer McCall purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jennifer McCall chose Topsail Island

Being an absentee owner, a condo made more sense than a single family dwelling and with the new siding and roofs, I felt that Topsail Dunes would be a good investment. I also surveyed people on the beach most of whom had been renting at the Dunes for years and the majority wouldn't consider going anywhere else; that was affirming.

What makes this condo unique

The view from a third floor condo on the ocean is spectacular and just sitting on the deck can be spiritual and calming. The pool is large enough to swim laps which is important to me and having it right there on the beach as an option, is a definite plus.

Clean and beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

When we first got there, we were a little on edge due to the rough exterior of the building but we were blown away on how beautiful and clean the room was! Just goes to show you, don't judge a book by its cover! As for the owner, Jen, she was just so pleasant and lovely!

Location wise, We were right on the beach and this time of year, no crowds! And I will say, this is the cleanest beach I've ever seen! We will visit again!

As for places to go, eat etc, it may seem like your choices are limited but just dive in and explore! The inlet 790 grill was AWESOME! The food was so fresh! Beach bunny ice cream was great, as they always have a movie playing and this would be great for kids!

Worth every single penny and you will not regret staying here! Truly a diamond in the rough!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Christina and we'll hope to see you again in the future. FYI, the ocean side of the building was recently resided and new railings were added. The same thing will be happening with the road side of the building in the next 2 years, so that 'rough' exterior you mentioned won't be relevant for too much longer. Anyway, it's all about the view :) Thanks again, Jeni

Tasteful ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated condo, right on the ocean. It is the 3rd floor, 4th step back from the front of the complex. Great views! Jeni was super nice and checked in on us and was willing to help with anything we needed.

Just a couple thoughts:

The bed could use some new/additional pillows. We had brought one luckily, because the other 2 were really flat.

The fridge is smaller than a regular one - it worked out ok for 2 people, but still a little crunched.

One larger frying pan would be helpful.

Owner's Response: Wendy: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a testimonial and for the 5 star rating. We aim to 'delight' so I also thank you for the critique and will be more than happy to add a larger frying pan and pillows to my list when I replenish the condo. There are 2 additional, new pillows in the chest in the bedroom but maybe you missed them! The fridge is appropriate for the size of the space so nothing much I can do about that I'm afraid but hopefully it was enough for your needs. Hoping you'll be back to visit us again in the future. Best, Jeni

Great View, Great Condo, Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Topsail Beach and we loved it! The beach accessible right with our condo. The condo was stunning, perfect size for 2 or 4 people. Jeni had paper products for us. The condo was very clean. I wouldn't change a thing about our trip. I cannot wait to go back!

This condo is amazing !!! The view is absolutely gorgeous! The condo is beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with anything you would need. We stayed June 18th through June 26th 2016. Jenny is an amazing person to rent from. She was easily reached and answered all our questions immediately. The area is a great place for a quiet vacation at a beautiful beach. The pool area is very nice and well kept and close to the condo. The elevator was nice to carry groceries up!!! The locals were very friendly!!! I would recommend this condo to anyone!!! Hope we can go back soon !!! Thanks so much Jenny !!!

Topsail Island is a place where families go to 'reconnect'. There's little to do except enjoy the beach, the surf and the fishing, so no interruptions. In the evening, there are many restaurants close by to choose from and most are family-friendly although barbecuing at home is always a great option. If you like to shop, Wilmington is a 40 minute drive and has a smorgasbord of options from antiquing to big box and specialty shops. Jacksonville, the home of Camp LeJeune Marine Corps., is also close by and is trying to compete with Wilmington for vacationers' attention. Wilmington’s history lives on every blade of grass on Civil War battlefields and every grain of sand on its beaches. It is the permanent home of the battleship U.S.S. North Carolina which served in every major offensive in the Pacific in WW II.

Quote from 'Echoes of Topsail' by David Stallman: “Topsail Island is a metaphor for life. It is ever changing and yet stays the same....If we pay attention, we can learn from Topsail how to enjoy life”.
