About Ginger Dellinger

We live in NC and have fallen in love with Topsail Island. We have two college students and wanted a place we could continue to spend time together and enjoy as our children grow older and have families of their own. We like to vacation in places that are laid back but still have lots to do and offer a comfortable place to relax. When we rent we look for beautiful views, updated decor, well stocked, clean and comfortable accommodations and we want to offer the same to our guests. This is our vacation home at the beach and we will be visiting it often to make sure it is always up to our standards and yours. We have private cleaning to help ensure we make your stay the best. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Ginger Dellinger purchased this house in 2015

Why Ginger Dellinger chose Surf City

We love being able to see the ocean from our deck with beach access so close by.

What makes this house unique

Two dens allow children to gather together and play games in one area while adults can gather in the other. Beautiful ocean views from our deck. Totally remodeled. Beach access right across the street.

Overall our family vacation was absolutely perfect. We had 6 adults and 3 children and this house was perfect for our group. The beach is easily 1 minute walk from the house and the location is far enough away from town to be family oriented but close enough to town to allow easy traveling for food and fun. I was able I was able to surf fish in the Am and Pm very easily and the beach is very family friendly and clean. My fiancée and I actually got married right outside the house on the beach during high tide. The house itself is beautiful and modernized. Everything went perfectly and the landlord was very quick to answer our questions and fix minor issues at the house. Our family is already looking into another vacation to surf city at this location. Very very satisfied!!!! Would recommend this location to absolutely anyone who is looking for a home away from home on the beach.

Beautiful and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

When my fiance and I started looking for properties to stay at for our trip everything was overpriced and unimpressive. When we came across Ginger's property in Surf City we were excited to learn the home was available during the time we wanted to take our trip. It is such incredibly close access to the beach not to mention the house itself is BEAUTIFUL inside. So much space and amenities provided. The master bedroom is something you have to see for yourself to understand. It helped make our vacation better because we felt at home during our stay! We will definitely book again. Thank you!!!

We simply loved the house and location. It was right across the street from the beach access walkway...the house was beautiful...everything we needed, other than what we were required to bring, was supplied... plenty of room...especially for all of us to sleep...the front porch had swings an rockers if we wanted to sit out front and laugh and visit with each other...the upstairs patio had plenty of room to sit and a beautiful view of the ocean...we sat on it every morning for coffee and in the evening for made my daughter’s going away mini vacation, with the family, memories she will never forget...everything in the house was up to date and functional...this home has me and my family deciding to make this an annual family get away...

We loved everything about the beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at the Edge of the Sand.

Our first priority in searching for a beach house was a king size master bedroom. Which Edge of the Sand has. The master bedroom is huge, very inviting and the bed was as comfy as ours at home. Along with the master we had our own private living room right off the master. Can’t say enough about how beautifully decorated it is.

Upstairs was just as nice and inviting. Kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. My favorite part of the upstairs was sitting at the kitchen table and watching the shrimp boats go by. Even though the house is across the street from beach, you still have a beautiful view of the ocean.

The ocean is just literally steps away from the house.

Thank you Ginger and your family for providing such a sweet home for our vacation.

We plan on returning next year!

Until next year,

Really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is such a relaxing and comfortable place. It has everything you would need to cook with in the kitchen. The bedrooms are set up nice and the beds are comfortable. If you have a large family this place has the room for them. I loved that the outside shower had hot water to rinse all the sand off. I also loved the idea of having a table full of board games for a family to be able to spend some quality bonding time. There is easy and quick access to the beach making it easier for families like mine who have younger children that need breaks from the beach sun:)Thank you for putting so much love into making this beach home a home away from home.

Great house with plenty of room and amenities and conveniently located just across the street from the beach access boardwalk. Great beach with good waves and impressed with the things to do in Surf City. Would definitely come back for another stay.
