Best Thanksgiving ever

  • 5 of 5

We left a snow storm in upstate NY with our daughter in order to be close enough to our 2 sons who live in Hope Mills, NC for easy visits. When we arrived we noticed that the townhouse was incredibly clean. Each of the areas was better than described or shown in photos. The kitchen area was well stocked, easy to cook in, easy to clean. We spent as much time on the decks as we did in the house. N. Topsail Beach had the best weather (60’s – 70’s) for Thanksgiving. We were on the beach every day, even got to swim that Friday. We took out the kayaks several times to explore a sound that was gorgeous and quiet. The owner, Greg was very responsive to any requests or concerns. On an aside note, as I was using the outdoor shower, I overheard the neighbors next door examining what amenities were offered for their townhouse. It seemed that all the outdoor equipment was marked “owner use only.” I was surprised because the Murray’s shared everything with their renters and it made the vacation seem more like home. This was the first time we had ever rented a vacation home and we’re sold, this was not only memorable, but just all around fantastic.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many different beach homes over the years. This property is the one of the best because of the location right between the ocean and sound. We enjoyed using our tandem kayak and the two kayaks provided. The sunsets were stunning from the balcony and from our kayaks in the sound. We didn't do any fishing, (they painted the dock that weekend), but this place would be ideal for it.The condo was nicely decorated and well equipped. Sheets and towels were provided. The neighbors were very friendly. The beach was quiet and we were lucky with nice warm weather in October. My only complaint would be the uncomfortable mattress in the master bedroom. The owner was easy to work with and very accommodating. We arrived a day later and he let us extend our shortened vacation with a late check out. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our beach home for your stay. We take pride in our home and always want to satisfy our renters. The master bed box spring squeaks and we just replaced it this weekend-12/4/16. Glad you had a good time. The Murray's

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.

Very comfortable stay!

  • 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.
