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

A Very Nice Attractive Space

  • 3 of 5

We found this to be a very attractive space and enjoyed our stay there. The living room was delightful and the kitchen was also a very nice space. The bedrooms were made up and ready for us. It appeared as though the space had not been rented in a while. There was a fine layer of dust on most surfaces and it was clear the immediate rental supplies had not been checked in a while. There were towels in the dryer and the toilets had rings around them as though they had not been checked in a while. We did make an inquiry about the wifi and received an immediate response which was very nice and much appreciated. The TV in the master bedroom did not work although we went through the instructions that were left regarding the electronics. We did not inquire further about it since we were still able to use the TV in the living room. The construction in the complex started up at 8:00 each morning, however, that was nothing the owners had control over - it was work being done on the building and just happened to be right outside of our bedroom window. Short walk through the pool area to the beach which was quite nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. This is the first 3 star review I have received in 3 years. I do apologize if you were not pleased and any inconvenience you incurred. Communication is so important. If you would have called me upon arrival I would have had my cleaning company return for a full clean especially for the fact that there were guest the week before your arrival. As you are aware from my amazing reviews and my flawless 5 star rating thus far, I wish you would have communicated your dissatisfaction so I had the chance to correct the flaws. No one is perfect but I believe in giving someone the chance to correct things. A little dust could be easily corrected. Again I am sorry you were not happy with my space and I will contact my cleaning company and report your concerns. This will not happy again. I would rate this guest in communication area 1 star Terrie

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

By the end of our first few hours at 1316 we decided we needed to book for next year! The location is perfect, the beach and pool are wonderful. The entire complex is well cared for, very clean and friendly. The condo had everything you could want .... a true home away from home. It is beautiful, comfortable and perfect on every way. We couldn't have asked for anything more. And we are sad to leaving this amazing place today..... but will already be looking forward to next year!! Thank you, Terrie, for sharing your place with us!

Enjoyed our time at Topsail Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Shipwatch Villas was a great place to stay on the island. The property is older but well maintained. The condo has everything you would need for a stay and more! Terrie, the owner, was great at sharing information about the condo/area and very quick to respond when needed. It is a well maintained condo and has a great view of the pool and ocean!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My son, daughter - in-law, and 12 year old twin grandchildren just spent a week in this beautiful condo. It is in the perfect location. Very quiet yet convenient to ocean and pool. The condo is well equipped with everything you need. It is beautifully decorated yet comfy. It was our first visit to North Topsail but definitely not our last!
