About Matt & Ally Schiefelbein

We are a family of five with three growing boys of our own! We own a home on Topsail Island and absolutely love it there! We wanted others to experience all the island has to offer and create wonderful memories of their own. We have renovated this vintage beach cottage to provide an incredible beach experience for visitors from all over!

Matt & Ally Schiefelbein purchased this house in 2014

Why Matt & Ally Schiefelbein chose North Topsail Beach

The cottage is directly behind the dunes on the beach, with beach access only 100 feet away! The deck offers spectacular views and the cottage is beautifully redecorated! It is located directly between Jacksonville and Wilmington, with a 5 minute drive to wonderful restaurants, shopping and art galleries in Surf City.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beach house is amazing! It's location is right on the beach and the decor is great, so much like a beach home from a magazine! We were on the upper deck all the time watching the beach and looking for dolphins. Shopping and restaurants were really close by and had awesome food, cool shops, found super good buys. I brought my mom and my aunt from Virginia and we were comfortable and just relaxed and watched movies and had the best time. We are definitely going to make this an annual trip and will be back!

Ally was very attentive and helpful remotely... the ocean cottage was so me... very pottery barnish!

  • 5 of 5

we spent two nights and were so impressed that we were able to sit in the high rise deck chairs our first night at dark and could see the ocean and was perfect! You need to bring any food items needed but Ally provided us with a delicious pastry surprise our first day from the Sugar Island Bakery... and their coffee was the best we have had in a very long time!

Very nice. Perfect for two with a pet!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Topsail. Great stay. Short walk to the beach. The top deck is perfect for early sunrise coffee or late evening cocktails! Bed was comfortable and all the amenities you need right there waiting for you. Owners were very quick to answer texts with good local advice. WiFi was also very good (in case you need it on your vacation!). Great experience! We’ll be back.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little oceanfront cottage. We were delighted from the moment we walked in the door! Ally knows how to make guests feel welcome; she understands the importance of small details for convenience, comfort, and a stress-free vacation. It's obvious Ally and Matt take good care of their property. I was impressed with how clean it was (a challenge with a beach cottage, especially one that allows pets, and we did not bring a pet). Ally's a talented, practical interior decorator, and a prompt communicator (important when guests have questions). We had the pleasure of meeting and talking with her, too. We can hardly wait to return!

A gem of a place on a gem of a beach

  • 5 of 5

Ally is a great host and this place could not have been any better. Great for my husband and I and our pooch. So thoughtfully updated we will definitely be back. Close to great places to paddle and quieter than other beaches. Flowers and sweets upon arrival made us feel the love.

North Topsail Beach
Car: recommended

Topsail Island is surrounded by a beautiful beach that has amazing powder sand, clear water, great fishing and awesome surfing! Enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck looking out over the ocean as the sun rises. You can go for a walk along the beach looking for sea shells as pelicans soar overhead. The dolphins play in the waves while you read a book under your beach umbrella with your toes in the sand! Fishing right in front of the cottage or down at the pier in Surf City (6 miles away) will give you a great catch of the day. Topsail Island is a sea turtle sanctuary and is the home of the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital. Wilmington is a short 25 minute drive to many sites including the river front shops and restaurants and the WWII Battleship. North Shore Golf Club as well as other local golf courses are 10 minutes away.
