Oceanfront Family Vacation. The comfort and beauty of this 5 bedroom 4 bathroom duplex is ready for your family to enjoy! Come to Topsail for the vacation your family has been waiting for! If you have a large, extended family, you may want to consider both sides of the duplex for a ten bedroom beach front home. Each duplex has a full kitchen and living/dining area. There is even a pool table on the ground floor.
We go to Topsail every year in July for a family vacation - but each year, our family also seems to grow, so we constantly need a bigger space. This year, there were 10 of us -- six adults, and four kids. The house was the perfect size for us. The room with the bunk beds was perfect for three of the kids, and the extra bedroom on the second floor would have been great for the baby and her crib. That brings me to my only real complain about the house, that may be a non-issue for some.
The bedroom on the 4th floor has no door, or closets. It's a loft, which wasn't listed in the description at the time of this review. This made the bedroom pretty much unusable, other than the shower, since bedtimes/waketimes varied greatly and the noise from the third floor (kitchen/family room) is easily heard on the 4th. Which is a real shame, since the 4th floor bedroom is beautiful. So, that left us using the queen bedroom on the 2nd floor for adults, and the large closet in the king bedroom on the 2nd for the baby (which worked fine, honestly...the closet is HUGE.)
The only other area we didn't use was the "pool table room" which is on the first floor, behind the stairs. Even with kids, that area didn't see much action since it was small, and not carpeted and all the way down on floor 1.
Other than that, we had a great stay. The house is wonderfully located, and we took note of how nice the furniture is -- it pretty impressive. The kitchen was stocked nicely, andthe beach on this section is wide and uncrowded . Awesome house, awesome locale.
Overall - we had a wonderful trip, and would definitely go back, if only that 4th floor room had a door.
We took a girls trip to Topsail Island and loved this house! It was right off the beach and had plenty of space. Great balcony and beach views. Nice kitchen, stocked with everything we needed. The living room is on the 3rd floor, but that really wasn't an issue for us. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for the 8 of us. It does share a wall with the second side of the duplex, but again, wasn't a problem for us. Highly recommend for a very relaxing beach stay!
We had a great time
Great house for a large family
It was nice because we were still off season but close enough to summer that the days were nice and warm
Loved being right on the beach with young kids
This Beachfront property was everything I needed, I thoroughly enjoyed my home for a week.
We took full advantage of the hot tub , which overlooks the ocean , the views are magnificient from the living room and dining area . I even captured dolphins on film .
The drawbacks for me were the stairs- 4 flights to 4th bedroom , and lack of screens on patio doors (i would have slept with patio door opened ).
