Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family would like to thanks Terrie for such a wonderful family vacation. It's not often you can rent a vacation home that is decorated and furnished with such luxury and style. It truly was more like being at home than just a rental. The home was equipped above our expectations as well as having amenities that made travel lighter (beach chairs and towels, a beach cart, sand toys) Terrie was a gracious and welcoming host and answered any and all emails promptly. Her inforation binder was not only filled with any info we could need, but done so in a witty manner. The location of the condo was PERFECT- overlooking the pool (which was never noisey) and a beautiful view of the beach. Both the pool and beach were immaculate and we enjoyed Pete's dedication to his job : ) We really can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was and are looking forward to next year already! Thank you Terrie!!

My Response

Thank you for your wonderful, honest and detailed review. It was so nice to hear the appreciation and the "feeling of being home" is exactly how I would like every guest to feel. It really is a family orientated , private beach community. It is well taken care of and our neighbors are friendly. I will be happy to host your family again next year and there will be exciting updates. As alway if you rent through VRBO and have a good standing rapport then next year you will receive a discounted rate. If you recommend a friend and they book through VRBO you will get an additional discount. Also think about renting on the off season, The Jewish Holidays, Columbus Day Week, Thanksgiving Week and Christmas Week are all still open and it is absolutely beautiful all year round. Take a deep breath and walk on the beach all year! Thank you Terrie

Relaxing Oceanfront "Beach Chic" Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 Glorious weeks at The Shipwatch Villas Condo. My husband and I totally enjoyed our tranquil stay at North Topsail Island. The condo was perfectly located overlooking the ocean. I walked the beach everyday for an hour and a half and some days I was the only person there! The condo was very comfortable and nicely decorated. It had everything you needed to cook with and feel right at home. The condo was exactly as shown in the pictures. It was 60 steps to the sand from the condo walkway, you can't get closer than that. If you like quiet, peaceful, and refreshing place to stay oceanfront, this is the place for you. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone. I loved walking the beach, watching dolphins swim by and the pelicans diving for fish. It was the perfect place to unwind from busy work an just relax by the water. I can't wait to return and would love to live here. I felt more relaxed here than I ever have in my life!

Everything in the condo was pretty, clean and comfortable. It was stocked with everything you would need to cook with and plenty of dishes. The only thing you need is spices , and food. Also, there were beach chairs and an umbrella. It was off season, so not everything was open, yet there were plenty of restaurants in the area.

I would definetly recommend this condo!!!

Great place for get-a-way.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was comfortable. The view was wonderful. The owner gave quick and clear response after the booking. The weather was our only downside. We love the beach in the winter but this was colder than expected. The condo's comfort made this a great place to stay warm.

Owner's Response: Our family truly values our guests! I am so happy to read the wonderful reviews that our guests write week in and week out! I will say that these guests were extremely patient about a new policy of having to wear the pool bands at the pool and I thank you. The words "clean" are so important to us. Clean and comfortable really equals a relaxing experience . I would love to have you and your family as our guests every year to continue your wonderful beach vacation memories. I sure hope you can come take a deep breath in the near future. Terrie
