our lovely North Topsail Beach home was purchased new in 2015. Our home is located on a dead end road directly across from the beach and has excellent beach access (less than a minute walk). The home is located in a nice neighborhood adjacent to Surf City and is close to restaurants and stores. This is a luxury home with hardwood and tile floors and granite countertops throughout. There are four covered porches and one balcony, three of these have beautiful ocean views.
*** We are taking extra measures in our cleaning processes between guests to minimize any exposure, following CDC guidelines for cleaning hard surfaces, and making every effort to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable vacation.
The house has all the modern amenities - smart TVs in four of the bedrooms and the living room and wireless internet access throughout (we even added a booster up on the third floor so that the signal is strong). This is a single family home which shares one wall with the immediate adjacent home as you can see in the pictures. Our home is closer to the ocean access and has unimpeded ocean views, as you can see from the pictures.
On the ground floor, there is ample parking for six vehicles. This floor has an elevator which goes to the first and second floors - enabling you to transport luggage and groceries easily throughout the house. The ground floor also has a hot/cold shower for washing off after you come in from the beach!
Traveling up to the first floor, you will find three bedrooms and a laundry room. The first bedroom faces the ocean and has a private deck, private bathroom with a bath/shower combination and a king bed. The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom - which has a double sink and separate toilet/shower room. The second bedroom has two twin beds and is perfect for kids. The third bedroom has a king bed and ample space to spread out. This room also includes a bookcase with many wonderful books if you need something to read on the beach! All the bedrooms on this floor have large closets for storage. The first and third bedrooms have televisions. The laundry room has an extra large washer and dryer and a sink, perfect for washing shells!
The second floor includes a gourmet kitchen - complete with granite countertops, kitchen island and separate bar area. Extra small appliances are included--crock pot, Kitchenaid mixer, Cuisinart, toaster, blender--and of course, a coffee pot. The dining table easily seats 8 and there is an extra leaf which can be added to increase the seating to 10. There is a bar with two stools on the island.
The living room is immediately adjacent to the kitchen and includes a large television which is internet capable and includes access to Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. The living room has a large couch, two swivel chairs, a recliner and one stand alone chair. We have a large collection of DVDs, CD's and games for you to enjoy! A deck is off the living room for great ocean views.
There is a half bath on this floor easily accessed from the living room. The fourth bedroom includes a king bed and large closet. This room has access to a private deck and large bathroom with double sink and large soaking tub.
The third floor is one large bedroom with a large bathroom with shower and television of course. This room has a queen bed and private balcony where you can enjoy the amazing ocean views.
We are pet friendly and have dogs ourselves that come to the beach with us from time to time! If you wish to bring your pet there is a non-refundable fee. You are able to walk dogs on the beach at any time--leased, of course.
We are an "older couple" who love the beach and come as often as we can. We purchased the house in May of 2015 after selling a house in the North Carolina mountains (too far away from our home in Eastern North Carolina). I am retired from directing a nonprofit for 26 years and my husband is an attorney (still practicing). We love to travel and take one "big trip" a year--recently to China. We have two daughters and three grandchildren--all who love this house. ~ Sylvia Ray
Why the Owner Chose North Topsail Beach:
I wanted to be close to the beach, 4 bedrooms, and an elevator. Our overweight Corgi loves the elevator. We love Topsail Island as it is 2 hours from our home and has lots of good restaurants. It is also "family friendly" and not crowded.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We love to sit on the porch with family and friends and look at the beautiful ocean views. While we in good health, the elevator makes a real difference in hauling up groceries. We are also at a dead-end street which is very nice because we get very little traffic. We enjoy hearing the sounds of the ocean at night. I love to cook and enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with Cuisinart, blender and Kitchen Aid stand mixer--and a crock pot! Since we live in a 100+ year old house, new is very nice!

The house is located on a dead end street which significantly cuts down on traffic. Three local bars (The Brass Pelican, Hulas, and Margaritas) are within walking distance at about a quarter mile. The location is about halfway between both bridges onto the island, the high-rise bridge from Sneads Ferry and the swing bridge from Holly Ridge / Surf City, which can cut down on your time getting on and off the island (there is usually much less traffic coming over the high-rise). Restaurants and shops are about 3.5 miles down the island in Surf City.
Check in is at 4:00 pm. A code to enter the house will be sent prior to the date of the rental. In addition, a key to the outside doors and the elevator will be left in the kitchen. A word of warning! If you arrive after dark, do not let the statue of "Precious" frighten you. She is at the top of the stairs coming up to the second floor. She is a larger than life size figure of a buxom blond in a red bathing suit. My husband's acquisition.....

Dreamaway South is the perfect beach home with its great location! It’s like home away from home with the three comfortable king beds, which we are all accustomed to sleeping in and the wonderful and relaxing decor, high ceilings, which give an open air feel, and the elevator that is wonderful for helping with luggage and groceries or just getting you to your room for relaxing! We all loved our private bathrooms as well!! The top suite with queen and private bath was perfect for our daughter’s family, which includes their three year old and one year old! The kitchen is a dream come true and perfect for our family! We had many delicious cooked meals all week from breakfast in the mornings to dinners in the evenings! Any item you needed for cooking was available, all you had to bring was the ingredients!! It was a super fun and relaxing week! We spent all day every day on the beach and took a short walk back to a most relaxing home, where we all took turns cooking great meals!! The private hot shower outdoors was super great getting all the sand from the beach off! Can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay!! It was a blast!! We’ll be back!!

This is a wonderful place to stay in Topsail. It has lots of space and every convenience of being at home. It is very close to the beach, even though it is not ocean front. You still have ocean views and beautiful sunsets which can be seen from the multiple decks. My family had a great time even though we had rain some of the days. We are already looking forward to our next trip. We enjoyed sharing the stair landing with Precious and she did not even scare the children.

The house was large so we had plenty of room. While not directly ocean front you could still see the ocean and the walk over was short. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and grill put during our stay. Loved having a nice washer and dryer to use. We really enjoyed all the porches, especially the one off the living room. One drawback, light sleepers will need to sleep upstairs or bring earplugs. Every footstep from above sounded like a family of elephants! I tried cranking up the fan I use to sleep at night but that did nothing to cover up the thunderous sound. I brought earplugs at CVS...... Problem solved!! Not sure if the floors are not well insulated or what but this was the only issue we had. Very nice rental!

Very nice beautiful home. Best equipped kitchen ever. Lots of room and pet friendly. There were cleaning products, big laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer, games and crayons etc, even extra lightbulbs for when one burned out. The elevator was so helpful in getting our belongings in and out of the house and great for my mother with mobility challenges. House is beautifully decorated and our family loved all the fun art on the walls and the sea shell creatures. The mermaid in the kitchen was a hit with my granddaughter. We loved the decks and the main one had comfy chairs to sit and enjoy the sea breezes. Easy access to an outstanding beach. The owner and property manager were so accommodating and helpful in making this first birthday and vacation without my husband much easier for our whole family.

The location is wonderful - just steps to the beach and not too far from restaurants and shopping. The house is beautiful with a well stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the covered porch on the main level - very comfortable seating and great views of the ocean. The third floor area is amazing with a sitting area and even more awesome views. I would definitely stay here again!
