My family and I have spent a week at Topsail for the past 6 or 7 years, usually at Stump Sound. This year, thought we'd try a different option and were thrilled to find this rental so close to the beach at such a great weekly rate (stayed aug. 17-24). That is the real value of this home. You cannot beat it's close proximity and easy access to the beach for the price. Literally a one minute walk. Great views as well, though a teensy bit blocked by the house beside it. It was also pretty clean (though the stairwell walls and bathroom ceilings need a really good wipe down.) Our main complaint had to do with the kitchen and its almost spartan quantity of glasses (specifically medium and small juice glasses and wine glasses), utensils, and other supplies. Most importantly, it lacks adequate pots and pans. Most are smaller size, making it quite difficult to prepare a meal for more than 4 people. (There's not even a large pot or dutch oven for crab/shrimp boils and such - we had brought one with us thank goodness!) Not that they should be provided but this is also the first rental where there isn't even a salt or pepper shaker left in the cabinet, so be sure to bring anything/everything you would need. Aside from kitchen, the furniture and bedding is a bit tired and has seen better days. For example, the fabric on one of the two easy chairs in the living room actually ripped when we reclined the chair. The Q bed downstairs where my husband and I slept was comfortable. Our companions said theirs were reasonably comfy as well. But be sure to bring your pillows. The owners really need to buy new pillows. Every pillow in the house is flat as a pancake - no support to speak of! Outside, there's parking beneath for 2 vehicles and the outdoow shower worked great. The owners also provide good quality beach chairs and some boogie boards which was much appreciated. All in all, this is a really great value and enjoyable place to stay - just bring your own creature comforts!- April G , Posted: 09/05/2013Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Enjoyed our stay 100%. Unit is open, bright and clean. Short walk to the beach and from the decks you have views of the beach and the sound. Everything you need is available to you. We will use this unit again.- R. Barnes , Posted: 08/02/2013Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021. Help us with a new review!

This trip was truly relaxing. While it rained everyday, we still had gorgeous views of the ocean and sound. The weather was moderate and not too hot. Treasure Realty was awesome to deal with and would recommend anyone to rent from them if they are looking for a place to stay on Topsail!- Lovethebeach , Posted: 09/13/2012
exhilarating and relaxing at the same time
Great functional house with very good ocean views from many balconies. Good sized fenced yard, very close to beach, allowing for many walks in the amazing surf on uncrowded soft sandy shoreline. Pelicans and schools of fish and waves, waves, waves. A storm during our stay allowed us to take full advantage of excellent wi-fi and large screen cable tv. Only problem was that the house phone was not functioning.Close to many good restaurants.- Ready For Another Vacation , Posted: 09/13/2012
Great Place for a Vacation
We loved being so close to a beautiful sandy beach. The water was warm and the beach was safe and clean. The home was clean and had everything you could ask for as far as amenities. There were numerous places close by to eat out. We ended each evening with ice cream cones from Island Delights.- A Group Of Eight , Posted: 08/12/2012
Great Family Vacation
Our family absolutely loved this home. It was so nice and clean, plenty of room, loved the decks on the house and it was so convenient to the beach. We hope to stay again next year.- Emily , Posted: 08/07/2012
Great views and beach access
Wonderful week at the beach! House very comfortable with all we needed and more. Would love to return.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 07/19/2012
We love this place!
We love the location and everything about this place for our family. We went there as two parents with several teenagers and a couple of friends. It was perfect for us. We also had a dog with us and loved the fact we could bring him, the fenced yard was a huge plus for this.
The layout was great as we,the parents had the main floor with a wonderful comfortable bedroom and all the teenagers were on the floor below. Every room has its own balcony and this provided lots of getting away from others opportunities. The neighbours are a good distance which helped us as the younger generation played music and video games at night. It is so close to the beach to be almost on the beach. The small service road between us and the beach is almost never busy.
The down sides are: most of the beds on the lower floors were very uncomfortable (and we are not picky, we stay in youth hostels!) They were fine for teenagers but felt our friends were not very comfortable. Also the kitchen is not well stocked, we had to go out to buy saucepans to cook pasta for the family. So it worked great for us and we would definately go again.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/28/2012
this was a great retreat from the hustle bustle.
A week which we look forward to all year,cannot come soon enough.
The price was an exceptional value..as we go off season.
We enjoy the privacy & lack of tourists.
It is such a well kept secret--this top-sail island- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 04/10/2012
Fabulous House, Awful service from Treasure
The house was nice. Great beach access, decks and location. Tons of stairs our older guests and older dog had problems with. Awful for groceries and unpacking. Back yard was good for the dogs to take care of business, but mosquitoes covered my legs within seconds of walking into it. I have never really experienced this many mosquitoes. We also had trouble with ants in the kitchen. The tiny kind. The worst issue was the the fridge. It wouldn't cool. Gave it overnight with $200 of groceries in it. Many calls and voice mails to Treasure... Someone came out on day 3 to check it, ordered a part. Then the part wasen't on the island, had to order, basically we got a new fridge on Friday late afternoon and left Saturday morning at 10am. I spent my vacation at the gas station buying bags of ice and changing ice in coolers with all our food in it. Lost Ice cream and freezer items. Cable and internet were out till Wed. Ants in everything on the counter. Even in the hot fridge. I can't tell you how many calls I made and finally had to go to the office to get results. I rented the house so everyone in our party asked me a million times if they were coming to fix the fridge. Oh, that Friday, (our last day) the men came to deliver a new fridge and were there 3 hours. They had to call the owners to get permission to take doors off. The house would have been great with a fridge. I felt like I paid a lot of money to have to deal with such issues and bad service. Yeah, the ac went out for a few days too! I just remembered the guy from treasure bringing by a window unit to pop in! What a mess. Most frustrating week of vacation ever. And I think they only refunded me $300 and the bags of ice! Yikes. If our office gave that kind of service, we would not be in business.- Mermaid , Posted: 04/10/2012
We really enjoyed our second stay at this house. It is situated very close to a beach access and a short drive to both Surf City and Snead's Ferry. The house is very comfortable, feels like home. The views are great. You can see the ocean from the deck off the kitchen/living area. Our dog would sit there and watch for the kids to come back from the beach. You can also see sunset over the intercoastal from the dining table. We love the place.- Tracey M from Apex , Posted:
Loved the location of this house, short walk to ocean and great views of ocean and sound. Home is nicely laid out and most everything worked. Just remember other than dishes and pots and pans there is absolutely nothing supplied in the home. Either bring it with you or stop at store on the way in. Back yard was nice for our pet but the prior guest didn’t pick up after their dog so if you take your pet please pick up behind it. More and better quality deck furniture would have made it a nice place to eat dinner but no table and just cheap plastic chairs. Over all a nice home and we will be sure to use it again.- Anonymous U , Posted:
The convenience of a fenced yard, short walk to beach and views from the deck are wonderful! The kitchen is sparsely but adequately equipped. We enjoyed our time here and will definitely rent this house again.- Theresa A from Greensboro , Posted:
