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.

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!

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.

Owner's Response: Mark, Glad you and your party enjoyed the view and quick access to the beach that Knee Deep offers. We remain confident that we are among the best values on North Topsail Beach and it means an awful lot that you weighed in on this fact in your review. Not sure about the empty glass outside on the 2nd floor deck. I am assuming a renter prior to you left the glass on the deck. As for the broken drawers in the fridge we have ordered two new drawer after your stay. They have been installed free of charge. As for the cleanliness of the beach house, in 3 years of contracting our cleaning company , we have never had a negative comment about the cleaning prep of the house. But I will certainly asked April and her team if they did anything different prior to your stay. My inclination is that they followed the normal protocol, but anything is possible I suppose. As for the beds. they were purchased new from the Mattress Factory in Wilmington in 2014, we have never had a complaint regarding the beds, their comfort or the quality of sleep they offer but again, anything is possible. I can say , i had a wonderful night sleep on the upstairs master bed a few weekends ago when we were making repairs after your stay. The downstairs couch was also purchased new in 2014, again we have never had a complaint regarding the couches but I respect the fact that you expect more in living room furniture and for that I wish they would have met your satisfaction. As for the faucet and toilets, we had to have both serviced by our plumber after your stay. With such a long rental season, its tough to assess blame but we wished that you didn't have the issues that you did. I also wish that we would have had a chance to contact our on call plumber to correct any issues with your toilet use or the looses faucet. Unfortunately, your phone call but it never showed up on my end. I can assure that with 20 weeks rented this year, we don't miss calls if any of our guest reach out. Excellent communication and quick response times are how we have achieved 98%-- 4 and 5 star reviews. I sincerely hope that the excellent value and gorgeous views that Knee Deep offers will be the lasting impression you are left with when you recall your stay. We certainly look forward to you and your party returning in 2017 rental season. Thanks again for choosing Knee Deep for your affordable fall get away. Have a great rest of your fall season. Best. Mike and Missy

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!
