Totally surrounded by water, on the tranquil Sound side of Topsail Island, a 3 or 4 minute walk to the beach, brand new hot tub, huge covered private dock, vintage chic decor. Relaxing, fun, romantic and family friendly. Beautiful year round! Come see the best views on the Island! Ask about last minute booking rates and rates for 7 night stays!

The space

Our vintage-modern nautical inspired 4 bedroom beach house in Surf City has everything you need for a visit to the coast.

Every single window (on both floors) has views of the picturesque sound side of Topsail Island.

There are 3 lovely bedrooms plus a cozy "bunk room" which features a built in queen-over-queen bunk allowing guests to imagine they are sleeping in a ship's berth if they are so inclined. (in other words, it's tiny!)

4 huge decks allow ample space to stretch out and eat, drink, read or just relax while watching the dolphins jump and the ships sail down the Intracoastal Waterway.

Hot tub overlooks endless views of the intracostal waterway!

Our huge, covered private dock is located right out the back door and has deepwater. Bring your own boat and keep it right there. It doesn't get any more convenient!

In addition to being a peaceful place of refuge for adults, this home is a kids' paradise. Catch fish and crabs right off the dock, play in shallows, swim, kayak and sail within sight of the house, and ride bikes in the cul-de-sac (no traffic at all on our side of the private bridge). And of course you can easily walk to the beach several times a day, like we do!

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire house, outdoor patio, private deepwater boat dock, hot tub, and yard. The ocean is a short 3-4 minute walk down the lane and there is a private access point right at the end of the lane.

Tranquil is the perfect word to describe this lovely home on the sound. We enjoyed a wonderful week exploring the nearby beaches and relaxing on the decks overlooking the sunrise, sunset, moon, and stars to the sound of the ocean. Joi was responsive and communicative as a host, providing great recommendations for things to do, see, and eat. The toys and games on hand at the house made it a dream for entertaining our toddler while my husband and I sipped coffee in the mornings or cooked in the well-stocked kitchen with incredible light and views. It was the perfect getaway for us, and we can't wait to return. Thank you again, Joi!

Perfect beach house! Beautifully decorated, clean and stocked with anything you'd need. Had a great time floating in the water right off the dock and it was a super easy walk to the beach. Joi was extremely helpful and easy to get in touch with. It was a perfect getaway and we will definitely be back!

This is a fab house in a brilliant location overlooking the sound. He top floor living space with surrounding deck is just great and the house effortlessly soaked up our family group of nine. Highly recommended

The house was perfect for my family and parents. Everyone was blown away by the decorative touches found throughout the house. Joi was always willing to answer any questions we had no matter how small. The house provided a beautiful panoramic view on the top floor for astounding sunsets. Very quiet and nice location. My father and I enjoyed fishing from the dock, and actually caught a flounder much to our surprise. Good times, at a great place. Highly recommend.

This house is the perfect getaway with spectacular views and a comfortable welcoming feel. We spent a week with our children and grandchildren (ages, 12, 9 and 1 week :-). The space was perfect and the master is large with it's own deck, bathroom and stunning view. There is also a hot tub on the deck, which we didn't use as it was in the high 80's t low 90's during our August stay. The dock is lovely and the kids had fun exploring all the sea creatures in the kayak and on paddle boards. We went to the beach everyday and it is a very short walk, with a one road crossing. The outdoor shower is perfect when returning from the beach (there is an enclosed one and an open one for getting the sand off). There are decks on the front and back with ample chairs and tables. In the evening we would sit out and watch the stars while enjoying a bit of a breeze. We cooked many family meals and the kitchen is well equipped as well as having spices etc available. The whole family agreed that this is a perfect house in a perfect location and we hope to return again!

We have stayed at several places on AirBNB but this was absolutely our favorite. What a unique and special oasis this is. Joi has poured her heart and creativity into the antique and shabby chic decor and her labor of love makes this a paradise you will never forget. The sound side mini-island offers so many activities that the ocean side doesn't. We kayaked, paddleboarded, caught crabs, fished and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and sunrises. But the sunsets on the water were truly breathtaking. It was a nature photographer's dream come true. She and Ty have thought of everything. So much in the kitchen that any chef will be pleased and delighted. From the laundry detergent, hand soap, beds made, condiments, spices, name it. It was there. All the directions, instructions, suggestions and details were extremely helpful. It made us feel like friends, not strangers. We had six young adults who were used to Myrtle Beach chaos but between the hot tub and the sound, they unanimously endorsed the entire vacation and ranked it as their favorite ever. They never had a dull moment. High praise indeed. We are already dreaming of a return trip. ❤️

Hi! We are a family of travelers, splitting our time between our home in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, our beach house on the North Carolina coast, and a tiny African village near Lake Victoria in Tanzania. We love the beach, the mountains and the Serengeti plains. My husband and I have 4 young children, whom we homeschool while we travel. We love sushi, pizza, bluegrass and sea turtles. We love to share our homes with the world, and appreciate meeting people from all over.
