Bright and comfortable beach home
I loved my stay at this beach house. It is large with the bedrooms each having a well maintained bathroom. The rooms on lower floors have great bunks for kids and the rooms upstairs have enormous windows with great views. The colors are updated and bright. The kitchen is spotless with appliances all working well and quiet, The internet was easy to use and fast
We enjoyed watching the dolphins pass and meals at the large dining room table. There is even a high top game table for family games and puzzles.
Very comfortable and i would stay again- Michellestoweong , 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!
We have stayed on Topsail for 20 years. This house and the location was great. We did have some issues. Hot tub not working but this was addressed very quickly. Refrigerator was leaking and this was also addressed very quickly but not resolved until after we left.
The house was beautiful and we loved every bedroom having its' own bathroom. Very nice layout. The kitchen was so well stocked and we appreciated that.
We did not report the steps going down to the beach. There were exposed nails and boards that were so worn down. We were so glad that we did not experience an injury and really should have reported this.- Harris Family On Topsail Again , Posted: 05/06/2021Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021.

Beach front was awesome!
We loved the house except there were just too many steps. If the house had been only 2 levels, it would have been much easier on the ones who have trouble going up and down steps.
We had an issue with the TV in one of the kids rooms. We weren't aware until after the office was closed on Saturday, so we had to wait until Monday to call for repair. The guy finally came - said he would be back that afternoon but never did. In total, I had to call 3 times to get this replaced.
The icemaker never worked properly on the refrigerator. I called about this on Monday at the same time I called about the TV. After the 3rd phone call, someone was nice enough to bring us ice but no one ever came and repaired the ice maker the whole time we were there. We had to continue buying bags of ice.- Andrea Cardwell , 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!
A wonderful time by all!
We have been going to N.topsail for a few years now. We missed a couple of years but we're hoping to make it this year. Treasure Realty has been very helpful renting a place for us and we've always had a great time and the homes have been beautiful!

easy, stress free, relaxing
The best, most relaxing, easy vacation i have ever booked. We drove in from Long Island(16 hours with a 3 and 5 year old) and we were welcome with open arms (though we were early)!We booked it on line and had confirmation by mail a few days later. All questions were answered by phone before we even arrived. When we arrived, some sea shells got stuck in the trash compactor, got jammed and was fixed within the hour of the request to be fixed. Also, it was the year hurricane Earl came through. Treasure Reality came that morning and batten down the hatches, so to speak, to keep us and our family safe. They came in and were gone without us even knowing they were there. Our vacation wasn't disturbed at all. We are booking our next vacation with them as we speak! Go Treasure Realty!! You Rock!!- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
This house saved our vacation!
Upon arriving at the house we had rented, we found it to be less than acceptable. I called Treasure Realty and they worked quickly on Friday afternoon (after 4 PM) to find us another place, which turned out to be this house! We loved it and all was well. Hats off to a very understanding office manager whose goal was to have a happy customer! This fall will mark our 5th year at Topsail and we have always found the office staff to be very cordial and accommodating!- Doris , Posted: 05/06/2021
Great Family spot
The home was clean and near the beach. There was plenty of space for multiple families.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
We all had an amazing time!
The home was beautiful. Clean, large and the deck furniture was a plus. The hottub was great and used alot. Access to the beach was very good. Location on the island was perfect-favorite part was that we saw a turtle hatching about 3 houses down. Least favorite was that the trash (outside) had not been emptied upon our arrival and was overflowing by the time we left. We did have to call maintenance one time & they came right away (I think for the hottub?)- Nick & Tanya , Posted: 05/06/2021
There are plenty of pictures to look at that will show you how special this vacation house is. However, standing on the balcony looking out at the ocean with your own eyes and watching the sun come up each morning, it doesn't get any better then that. For me being right on the beach was a bucket list dream come true.
Not only is the location perfect but the house itself is very big yet has cozy feel and everything you need except your food for the week.
I will definitely be coming back with my big family next time.- Connie R , Posted: 05/06/2021
Great beachfront option for a big family
The best thing about the house was the beach. It's so rare now to find a decently wide beach on North Topsail and this place has it. Even at high tide! The house itself was fine. It had been freshly painted and in very good shape post-hurricane. Some of the furniture left a lot to be desired. The only couch in the living was a futon. Seriously. It was junk and not befitting a rental of this price. Also, there was very little outside seating and no outdoor dining at all. I'm chalking up its faults to the hurricane. Otherwise it really is a great option. Clean, great beach, and lots of bathrooms.- Jennifer D , Posted: 05/06/2021
Beautiful home with huge decks to sit on and enjoy the ocean
Enjoyed our stay at this beautiful oceanfront home. It was very clean and had a stocked kitchen with everything you would need to be able to prepare any meal. Full size washer/dryer and every bedroom had a full bath attached. Two master suites with king beds and private balconies.- Rachel S , Posted: 05/06/2021
New Updates, New Hot Tub, Very Clean, Literally on the Beach!!!!!
This house was more than we even anticipated. The previous reviews were okay, but not always great. Our stay there was exceptional! Everything was pretty much brand new and felt like the new owners really care about their property and guests!! Not only is the house amazing, but you can sit in the hot tub and listen to the waves crash (while watching dolphins swim past), yeah that was cool...several times a day while we were there, dolphins/porpoises swam by 3-5 at a time! We definitely are looking forward to our next stay here!!!!- Jstapleton20 , Posted: 05/06/2021
New owners, updates home
After reading the reviews based on the previous owner I was skeptical. However I was surprised at the improvements (new paint, decor, furniture upgrades, hot tub) I experienced now under the new owners! The house is in a great location with plenty of deck space to view the ocean. It's large enough for three families to stay (parents upstairs and kids downstairs!). We had a very enjoyable time!- Jeremy P , Posted: 05/06/2021
New owners, many updates, lots of TLC done, perfect relaxation spot!
House is beautiful - this home is a great family friendly house located on the water. This home has new owners and they have given it a lot of TLC. The house looks great. It has been painted inside, 7 TV's, 6 Blu Ray/DVD players, new bedding on beds, kitchen equipped with necessities plus more, wine cooler for that perfectly chilled glass of wine, wonderful hot tub, plenty of gathering space in the living room to play games, watch a movie or just relax. We didn't leave the house much but if you want to, there are restaurants, shopping and other activities not far at all. We loved spending time here and will come back again!!!- Sutterzoo , Posted: 05/06/2021
Awesome New Years get away!
What an amazing place to spend the New Year at. The house looks newly updated with a fresh look. The kitchen is foodie friendly, easily cooked for the large crowd for our New Years gathering. There was lots of space in the house to gather or find some down time.
We had friends fly in to Wilmington Airport, only a 45 min drive to pick them up. Very convenient. What a awesome time and plan on booking again!- Pwright2018 , Posted: 05/06/2021
Open, bright, ocean-front condo
This was my first trip to Topsail, and I went with some girlfriends on a Girls Getaway. We took a chance on this property, as it's come under new ownership, and boy were we impressed! I know from the other reviews it sounds horrible, and I normally am big on reviews, so that's why I feel like I need to write an updated one. I don't know what the place looked like before, but I can tell you that while we were there, we didn't see anything that sounds like the previous reviews. My friends and I stayed in an obviously freshly painted, CLEAN home. We had lots of space and loved that every bedroom had its own full bath. Going during December meant that we used the new hot tub, and were still able to sit out on the deck and watch dolphins right in front of the house. We did go for walks and runs down on the beach, and having that easy access was very nice. You could tell that they'd replaced some parts of the deck ' maybe this is what previous reviews are talking about? There are also nice seating areas partway to the water where you can just enjoy the beach. I think if you were to rent with big/multiple families, there is lots of space/opportunities to spread out and not be on top of eachother ' a big plus! The kitchen was well-stocked with supplies, and I loved that there were two sinks'again, space! I would definitely go back with my family in the summer.- Kate G , Posted: 05/06/2021
