All "community pools" are managed by HOAs. In normal times, all the pools would be open and operating at full capacity. These are not normal times.
The "phase" of reopening is a fluid issue and has an effect on whether pools are open at all as well as whether they are open but on a REDUCED occupancy mandate. Please modify your expectation accordingly.
Please do not rely completely on any information you get from any source. All information is, at best, a snapshot of today's circumstance. Come prepared to enjoy the beach and the island irrespective of the advertised pool amenity.
Many bars, restaurants, and attractions are operating at reduced capacity, hours, and staff. Be advised.
We hope your stay with us on majestic Topsail Island will be as magnificent and satisfying as you had ever hoped in your best dreams and imaginations.

Fantastic Week at a Fantastic House
We had a great week at this beautiful house. Our group included travelers aged 6 to late 70s and every one of us loved this house and this location. The house itself was clean and beautifully decorated and nicely designed to comfortably hold our crowd. It really was as pretty as the pictures on the website. We felt like there was room for all of us to be together in the common area without feeling crowded and plenty of space in the house to get away from each other as well.
The kitchen is big and well stocked. I don't think the oven heated as well as mine at home, but that's pretty minor. There's plenty of workspace and the seating in the kitchen and dining room is great for a crowd. The refrigerator is huge. The two sinks were very handy for cooking for a crowd.
The beds were comfortable and we were all tired enough after our busy days on the beach and running around that we slept well. We rented linens and it did take a little while for them to show up, but they were there in plenty of time for us to get beds made before dinner time. We also rented towels, which showed up at the same time. Both were rented through the realty company.
We were only steps from the beach, which was never crowded. The public access is a little way down, so most of the people on the beach were from the other nearby houses. There's plenty of room to put up an umbrella or tent for shade, even at high tide.
The location of the house is great. This area of the island is quiet, with no businesses in walking distance. But it's a short drive if you want to find someplace to shop or eat. Just don't expect a lot of night life or a Myrtle Beach type of atmosphere. It's very family oriented. If you have kids, you might want to look up EMA, Ecological Marine Adventures, a hands-on beach science group down the road in Surf City. We took the two kids in our group on a night time ghost crab adventure and it was a highlight of our trip. I wish we'd signed up for more of the classes this awesome lady offers. We learned so much about the beach creatures and went hunting for ghost crabs (and found them) every night on the beach for the rest of the vacation.
We rented this house through Treasure Realty and they were awesome to work with. They helped me find just the right property and answered all of my questions. Check in was a breeze. I was worried when we pulled into the parking lot on Saturday and saw a long line of vacationers waiting to get their keys, but the line moved really quickly and the folks working were very friendly and efficient. They were quick to help when I had a minor problem (of my own making!) at the beginning of the trip.
I live locally and was planning this vacation for family who were traveling from Michigan, Georgia, and Missouri, and I wanted very much for them to feel like they had spent their money wisely on this vacation. Every single person agreed that this was a great place to stay and they'd love to come back to this home.- Travelyearly , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Beautiful, breath taking views.
We had a wonderful time 12 children and 8 adults. the community is family oriented.From the time we got up until we finished playing bean bag games at night.it was great. We would suggest another refrigerater in the garage would be helpful.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Beautiful and spacious house
This house is brand-new yet well-equipped. It is beautifully decorated and very spacious. Plenty of room for a large family or a few families even. The dining tables were huge which allowed our big group to eat together which is hard to find. It's wonderful that there are two master bedrooms. It was also nice that each bedroom have their own bathroom. You can still see the ocean and beach access is very close. The elevator was great for unloading and loading. I also appreciated that there were baby gates at the top of each set of stairs. This made our week alot more relaxing and safe.
