Great location, beautiful views, lots of extras to make the beach a relaxing vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the property with easy directions to get there and to gain entry. Stores were within 5 minutes away and Downtown Surf City 15 minutes. Everything was easy to find around the house when we arrived. The beach access was just across the road and the area was not crowded. We had a tropical storm hit one day. It didn't stop us from having a good time with all of the movies and games provided at the house. The outdoor shower made it so nice to clean up before heading into the house. The grill, backyard, hammock, chairs and toys made it so nice to enjoy the beach with little luxuries not normally provided! There was furniture on each of the balconies to enjoy wonderful views! Sunsets were beautiful. The two kayaks provided were easy to use and the instructions were clear of where to put them in.

The two things we would recommend are a package available for tenants to select as there was no toilet paper, paper towels, or hand soap at the house. We had always previously had this provided on stays and had to go get these items upon arrival. In the upstairs bedroom, there is a portable AC that sometimes seemed to have a funny smell. An air freshener seemed to make all the difference.

The house is a split level. If someone can't do stairs, it may not be a good fit. The bedrooms are all on a different level then the main living area.

We will definitely be looking into staying here again in future visits! The Murrays were so helpful and provided great hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 2 couples, spent a week and completely enjoyed our stay! The condo was really well equipped to include a gas Grill, two kayaks as well as a completely stocked kitchen with dishes, glasses, blender, even a wine cooler! The owner Greg was very friendly and helpful. Quiet area of the island.

It's the perfect location with fantastic amenities and stunning views. The condo was clean and comfortable. The 5 decks offer so many choices with such comfortable seating. The weather was very hot, so having the decks and cozy condo helped us take a break from the heat without missing out on the beauty of our surroundings.

Thank you for offering your home

This was our first trip to Topsail Island! My daughter was attending Sea Turtle Camp on the Island so we brought the whole family with us and had a great week! The house was beautiful and very welcoming and very clean. There was plenty of room for everyone. The linen service was nice. Loved all of the detail in the decor! The younger kids had so much fun with the boogie boards and the sand toys! We had a great time fishing at the private gazebo, that was a great bonus! The kitchen was very well stocked! We enjoyed using the grill. There are also restaurants a short drive into town our favorite was Daddy Mac's! The best part of our day at the house has to be watching the sunsets on the sound and enjoying a cocktail on the deck! The view from all five decks was AMAZING, it never gets old! We love that you could see the ocean and the sound! It is so nice that the beach is so close! The beach was very clean and it was not crowded. We were very excited that we were able to see the swing bridge in motion! Wilmington was a short drive and I recommend checking it out. We went to the railroad museum and stopped at one of the many restaurants for a quick lunch. I cannot wait to return to Topsail Island and explore some more! We had a great vacation and made lots of memories! Thank you for sharing your home, I hope to visit again soon.

Clean, Great Location, Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd family vacation in Shipwatch Villas! This beach home was beautifully decorated with all the necessities. The kitchen was well-equipped with plenty of plates and flatware. There were many beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys. The beaches along North Topsail were clean and not crowded! The sound offers a beautiful view of the sunset. The linen service was a huge plus. The only thing we had to bring were beach towels. We also enjoyed using the two kayaks in the sound. We had a very enjoyable stay and look forward to coming again!

Relaxing and beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in your townhome. We felt as if one of our best friends had allowed us to stay in their home. Special touches everywhere and very clean. We enjoyed the view of the Sound and we used the kayaks every day to see it more closely. Our son and his wife and little son stayed a couple days also and there was plenty of room for everyone. The beach is so close you feel like you are staying on the Sound and the ocean. We hope to visit again soon. Thank you for a very relaxed and refreshing time. Jim and Debbie
