Oceanfront 4BR with Private Heated Pool and Hot Tub
3634 Island Drive is unique on Topsail Island. Enjoy the only 4-bedroom oceanfront house with a private heated pool (13’x31’). The 6-person hot tub on the deck will allow you to delight in the cool evening breeze as you gaze into the starry skies, perhaps while enjoying a glass of wine. The kids (and kids at heart) will love the pool, maybe even more than the ocean.
A private sitting area alongside the dunes allows for gorgeous views of both the ocean and the pool. Your very own private walkway leads you directly to the smooth, sandy beach where you will find plenty of seashells but almost no crowds. If you get lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the family of dolphins that regularly frolics along the shore.
Two spacious covered decks share the same unobstructed views as the dune deck but are just steps away from the air conditioning and indoor conveniences. Rebuilt in 2017, the decks’ Trex flooring is easy of the feet. Enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating rinse in the private heated outdoor shower before you climb into the hammock swing for an afternoon nap. You may never want to come back inside!
In the unlikely event that you get bored with the sand and sunshine (we know that’s not likely), go surfing online with wireless high speed internet or enjoy a curated collection of board games.
The great room is centered around a 50” smart HDTV with sound bar that allows you to access your favorite streaming service or sample the home’s DVD collection. Sink into the comfy sectional sofa and enjoy the view from the full wall of windows overlooking the ocean. The kitchen is well equipped, seating 4 along the center island and 8 at the formal dining table.
All bedrooms are oceanfront and each has a TV. Upstairs, there is a king master bedroom with adjacent bathroom. Downstairs, there are 3 large oceanfront bedrooms. The downstairs king master bedroom is adjacent to one bathroom. There is also a middle room with two full size beds. The kids’ bedroom adjacent to the second bathroom has a twin-twin bunkbed and a full-twin bunkbed. The queen sleeper sofa is located in the great room. All bathrooms were fully renovated in 2019.
A maximum of 15 persons allowed. No smoking or pets allowed. $375 fee for heating the pool in the off and mid seasons. $75 fee for activating the hot tub during the mid and off seasons.

Our favorite beach house, ever
This was our first trip to Topsail and we will definitely be back! The positives of the house: The yard (what beachfront house has a yard?!) A pool AND a hot tub All bedrooms are oceanfront Two king bedrooms Kitchen was well stocked The AC kept up and worked great (we have had other beach houses in the past that haven't and we were miserable on those hot muggy August days) The beach is beautiful and no crowds The layout inside is perfect and we were very comfortable with 8 people Loved that all outside decks connected so you could reach getting from the top floor to the back yard no problem The private access to the beach with stairs, no large dunes to fumble over like in OBX Love the large table for all 8 of us so we could eat as a family. In fact one morning we were eating breakfast we saw a dolphin swimming by Negatives of the house The fridge started acting up when we got there. The temperature kept rising and we were worried our food was going to spoil. It eventually cooled off, but I do think it's about time to get a new fridge. Same for the range, it worked fine with no issues, but it is probably time to replace that as well. Unfortunately we saw some pretty large cockroaches at night on the decks and in the yard. We never saw any in the house and we were trying to keep all crumbs picked up on the decks. I know this can be common though with high turnover rental houses, but still hate seeing them. The grill was not in good condition, we were thankful we brought our own The king bedroom on the second floor the mattress is beginning to sag in the middle Overall I would rate a 4.5 out of 5. We hope to be able to rent this house again in the future.- Anonymous U , Posted: 08/21/2021
Thank you for your kind review. We do spray for roaches regularly. But that does not keep the Palmetto bugs from being outside (where they belong!). Refrigerators often have a rough start at the beginning of the week because they get completely emptied, cleaned out, and filled up with mostly hot items. This is something that your fridge at home never has to suffer but in 24 hours they regulate to the initial shock and work fine. We ill pass on your appliance suggestions to the owners. Glad you had a great vacation!- Treasure Island Realty staff, Posted: 08/24/2021

Great ocean front vacation home.
The check-in process was crowded but efficient. The features of the home were all we hoped they would be. Beach-front, private pool, hot tub and lots of space for the whole family. The location was close to a grocery store and some restaurants, however, we cooked most meals. The only negatives I have for this house are the dryer did not work properly and an above average amount of bugs, not just in the kitchen area, but all levels. It was a pricy vacation but would rent this home again, and most likely will.- Maynard , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Very enjoyable family beach week!
This home was clean and well laid out (MBR on second / kitchen / family room level and three BRs with two baths on first level. Only 'negative' was only one bathroom on second level so whomever had MBR also had to come out of the bedroom to get to the bathroom.
Smaller children (4 & 7) enjoyed the pool as much as the beach.
North Topsail Island is a convenient very nice beach that is relatively flat a long way out into the ocean; hence is absolutley great with small children and for those who like to search for shells and 'beach glass'!- Macreydevs , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Great time, weather was fabulous and really enjoyed having the pool. The house was great, beds very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped with the exception of more variety of drinking glasses, need pot and pan tops" and a few more eating utensils. The kids loved it and we would definitely recommend this house to enjoy on Topsail Beach."- The Pyhel Family , Posted: 05/06/2021
We loved this home. My whole family of 9 stayed together (3 generations) for 1 week. The house was beautiful, clean, well taken care of. The pool was warm and in a perfect spot. Everything was in working order, no issues. Great spot right on the beach. Wonderful - plenty of space!- Gdcmom , Posted: 05/06/2021
Generally a good experience however, the property seems to be getting in dis-repair and it seems as if whomever it is up to maintain it is letting it go somewhat. Last two years have been this way. As the longest repeat customer to this property I can say this. Needs to have more attention spent on upgrading and maintaining property considering the cost every year.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
We visit Topsail every October,. we enjoy the less crowed beaches. The house met our needs for the two weeks of our stay. Only drawback was no elevator. Location is convenient especially direct beach access. House is comfortably furnished.- Sisters On Respite , Posted: 05/06/2021
Great Memories of Top Sail
We so enjoyed our family time on Island Drive in Top Sail. The home was large and comfortably accommodated our reunion with children and grandchildren. The pool and Hot Tub were icing on the cake...ensuring we could enjoy our time together regardless of time or weather conditions. We return to Top Sail year after year, but sadly in retirement we can no longer afford the extravagance of this very special house, and must opt for more economical accommodations. It was sure fun while it lasted, and the memories will live on!- Rawlings Family , Posted: 05/06/2021
Splash Landing Ohio Family Vacation
An absolutely beautiful home! It had everything we needed. I love the reverse floor plan so that my elderly mother could sit out on the deck and see the ocean! We enjoyed the hot tub and the pool. The kitchen was well-equipped, the living room and dining room furniture is very beachy & all of the beds were comfortable! My family would highly recommend this rental.- Worner22 , Posted: 05/06/2021
