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.

Beautiful home in convenient location
My husband, sister and I vacationed at this home in April. The home was beautifully furnished and had great access to the beach. The 2-car garage was awesome to pull in and keep the weather off the cars.
There were only a couple of things I would change. The TV in the master bedroom was very small and we couldn't get it to work. Also, we would have liked more shelves in the bedroom closets.
Overall, we had a wonderful time in this home and would definitely stay there again.- Lovinglakelife2 , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021. Help us with a new review!
Shangra-la on the N. Carolina atlantic!!!
We absolutely adored our stay - it was the respite and restoration we needed!!! Thank you! Loved being literally on the beach, watching the whale pods passing by each day, searching for shells, and watching the sun come up and set. Truly it is a haven for anyone! Oh, and the home is simply beautiful, spacious, and the most comfortable beds ever!!! Can't wait to come back!- Priscilla Grant , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021. Help us with a new review!
Very nice vacation
This home was large enough and the layout worked for my family. The porches were great. Things about our stay that bothered us was the cleanliness. This has been the third year down at Top Sail, this is the first year we used Treasure Realty. The house had beautiful windows but could not see out of them. Floor, woodwork, countertops were dirty. Also it would have been nice to have a grill and some sort of tables out on the porches. Also this kitchen had the least amount of amenities than in the past two years. But all in all we had a great time and would come back to Top Sail.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Enjoyed our stay
The house is beautifully decorated, and located on the beach. The only thing, the dunes block the main floor view of the ocean. We really had a wonderful vacation in this house, really laid off well for families. The dishwasher did break middle of our vaca so had to wash dishes by hand ;(, but didn't let that stop our fun :) Also, the curtains on the upper level of the house need to be more private. They are very sheer, and if you have neighbors, they could see into the master bath ;((( Maybe not everyone cares, but we did feel a little uncomfortable. We are getting older, so for our next vaca house, we will be looking for one with an elevator. This house is only 2 levels, but for younger families, shouldn't be any problems.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
relaxing!! great family vacation
This was our 1st family vacation in 11 years and we chose Topsail, NC. We had a wonderful week!! It was such a relaxing week, enjoying our family and longtime family friends. Our daughters are married and busy with work and their families, so we cherished each day together. We enjoyed fixing great meals together in the spacious kitchen, and relaxing on the deck and beach. The house was spacious and the bedrooms worked well for us...the decor was comfortable and fit our family..same decorating taste...great job! A little disappointing that we didn't have a view of the ocean...any way they can trim those bushes? We loved the uncrowded beach so we could watch our grandson enjoy the sand and waves! No worries that we couldn't see him. Evening walks,sunsets and moonlit nights were great and we enjoyed the decks any hour of the day...nice ocean breezes! My daughter was able to cross 1 thing off her bucket list..she was able to watch as 2 turtle nests were uncovered and seeing those baby turtles make their 1st trek to the ocean...amazing to watch!!
Treasure Realty was easy to work with scheduling our vacation and check-in wasn't too bad.
We had a great week and hope to return in 2013. Would rent this house again...unless extended family joins us we will be looking for a larger home...same area.- Cici , Posted: 05/06/2021
Great Stay for Families
The home was beautiful and well equipped. Plenty of space for a few families to enjoy the beach. This section of beach was perfect and not over crowded. The house was lovely and was relatively clean, however the furniture / rugs could probably use a good cleaning between seasons due to the wear and tear.- Sarah L. , Posted: 05/06/2021
A truly wonderful beach house and a wonderful vacation.
This is a very nice beach house with many well thought out amenities. It is decorated so tastefully...we just loved it! We would choose to stay at this house in the future.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
Love that area!
This was our 3rd oceanfront rental and our 1st hurricane. We lost one day to the storm (ins. covered it) and upon arrival had to put deck furniture outside from living room area and clean up area where the furniture was left (cleaners responsibility?). Other than that it was fantastic, we are closing on a vacation house in the area in 2 weeks through your Treasure Realty. Need I say more?- Bryan , Posted: 05/06/2021
We rented this as a Christmas gift for my husband's family. My husband's father passed away earlier that year and we knew everyone needed time away. The home is located right on the beach and the views are wonderful. We got to watch dolphins playing. There were a few things that bothered me about this home: 1) it did not appear that it been thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival; and (2) there were not enough kitchen items: i.e. pots and pans, utensils, dishes, etc.- J.

Fun despite the hurricane and terrible check-in
Overall, the house was very nice and well appointed. The beach was great and the house was right on the beach. We were a bit disappointed that the wonderful porch and family room had no view of the beach due to the vegetation and dunes. The only views were from the upper floors/bedrooms. This was one of the few houses in this subdivision with this obstructed view and the pictures just don't show that. The check-in process at Treasure Realty was a nightmare. They were swarmed with guests checking in and the lines were backed up out of their rental office onto the sidewalk! Finally, read the fine print. Our stay was cut short by Hurricane Irene. We were evacuated on Thursday of a Saturday to Saturday rental. Despite paying for the rental insurance through Treasure Realty, they were no help in filing a claim, less than no help really, and eventually we simply gave up.- Matthew S. , Posted: 05/06/2021
