About Michael Purcell

We are two families from Hillsborough NC that finally decided to make the jump into a beach house, a jump....Knee Deep!

Michael Purcell purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael Purcell chose Topsail Island

After years of family vacations on North Topsail Beach, we decided to start looking for the perfect spot to buy a place. When we came across Knee Deep, the views literally took our breath away. The idea of being able to have that perfect spot on the beach became a reality for us this year. And we are looking forward to sharing Knee Deep with other families to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

We are on the North End of the beach, so there is not much to distract you from the beach and your family time. We love the short walk to the waters edge. We have rented places not on the beach before and it is really convenient to be so close to the water's edge.

Nice place with great view

  • 2 of 5

We had a great time there , view was great and access to beach was easy ,the property needs some work , we where disappointed that the home was not cleaned , there was glass out on top deck with drink and roaches in it , the coffee maker had mold and old coffee grinds still in it , and when you open fridge lower drawers handles are busted and tray , the kitchen faucet needs replacing , handle comes off in your hand and spout is completely loose , as for plumbing toilets will not flush unless you try 2 or 3 times and downstairs shower would not drain at all until we took a plunger to it. Beds are very wore out and there is no good night sleeping on them and couches down stairs are equally wore out . Front door will not lock from outside when you leave , but nice new deck . Honestly with this location and view the last thing your vacationers need is to deal with a home that needs obvious repairs . Also when we called home owner about issues with plumbing he never responded . As for restaurants near by the riverview cafe was ok food was not that great and was highly recommended by the pier down the road from us , we must have come at a bad time . Until the issues with the house are fixed I would not stay there again.

Knee Deep was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We visited from Arlington, Va for a week at the end of August and had a wonderful time at Knee Deep. First if all we didnt have a reservation for lodging until we were an hour away. We are very picky and really wanted to see the houses first but thats not how it works. Michaels home was available and at a great rate so we contacted him and he accommadated our family of four immediately. When we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised. The home is clean, well decorated w light colors and simple beach decor. There was a kitchen w all the items you can think of. Coffee maker, waffle iron, blender, ice maker, popcorn maker, glasses, cups, mugs, platters, bowls, top of the line cookware, ect! Thanks for that!. The walk to the beach is right off the back and less than a half block. The kids enjoyed the loft space. We spent most of our time in the living rm, dining rm, and kitchen w open floor plan. There are stores nearby to get food and anything you need for the beach. We headed out just in time to beat the storm.

Thanks Michael!

Very short walk to the beach on your own Boardwalk!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! We loved the open floor plan of the kitchen, dining room and living room!! The bunk bed room is extremely small but only needed for sleep. The bunk room and two queen rooms are located on the main floor where the front door and laundry room are. A little noisy if people are walking upstairs in the kitchen and dining room as these rooms are just below it. Very close access to the beach! Very quiet beach, no shops or activities on this end of the beach. Shops and grocery are only 7 minutes away. You must check out the turtle rescue on the other side of the island! Really cool/huge turtles!! Will be back!!

Perfect Family Get Away 2016....Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week at North Topsail Beach and Knee Deep.

It was a wonderful week spent with family enjoying the beach and Knee Deep was the perfect spot. The house was spacious and the kitchen was really well equipped. Our kids loved watching movies in the 3rd floor loft while the parents enjoyed talking and watching the big flat screen on the main floor. We found Knee Deep to be just as it appears in the photos on VRBO which isn't always the case when you rent site unseen. The brand new decks ended being where our group spent much of our "non-beach" time. The views were truly breathtaking and the sounds of the ocean made our deck time priceless. Our weather was perfect aside from one cloudy day, which was a nice break from the sun for all of us. We did a lot of fishing on the beach in front of the house and even took the kids crabbing on a short bayside dock a couple of blocks away. We caught enough blue claw crabs for a mini feast. The kids enjoyed swimming both on the ocean side and near the pass where the waves were a little quieter. The sound views from the kitchen windows were just as good as the ocean views off the back deck. We drove into Surf City, about 15 mins away for miniature golf, shopping and of course ice cream. Knee Deep was an outstanding value for the money, we will definitely return for 2017. Thanks for sharing your wonderful beach home with us!

Lovely home, great view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house! It was completely stocked with everything we needed and even things we didn't think we needed! The view is by far the best. We saw deer! On the beach! And in the marshy area. Lots of turtles, crabs and birds as well. My family was able to take a kayak out from the shore. There was lots of fishing, swimming, crabbing and walks along the beach as well. When we wanted to go into town, it was only about a 15 minute drive. We really enjoyed Max's pizza in Topsail! We cooked every night we were there and really loved having all the kitchen amenities. We had 3 families and it fit 10 of us comfortably. The house was clean and we never even heard the neighbors. We are considering coming for Thanksgiving! Oh, and Mike always answered my questions promptly! Thanks for sharing your beach house with us!

Just What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay at Knee Deep. Early in the year (second week in May) but the weather was very comfortable. Grandpa and Grandma, our son and his wife, and our daughter, her husband, and their two boys (3 and 1) went to spend some family time together. This was.a wonderful place for that, and well worth the cost. Food Lion and CVS about 10 minutes or so away. Our grandsons loved the huge sandy tide pool between the house and the ocean - shallow enough on one end for the youngest to splash around, and a little deeper for the older one to splash and crash around. Adults do need to stay nearby, but there are no waves there to deal with. The place is well furnished and maintained. A new deck and stairs were being built while we were there, but that was no problem and will mean super safe stays for those who follow us. Nice place to rinse off under the house before going inside. Place could hold quite a few more than our family, so we had lots of room. Came in handy for active boys to play with their toys. We found everything we needed furnished, but don't forget to bring your own sheets and towels. The washer and dryer came in very handy. Thanks for making your home available to share, Mike. We had a great time there and made some lifelong memories!
