Another Wonderful Stay
We stayed at this house for Christmas two years ago, and when we decided to return for 2016, this was the first house I looked to rent. The location is perfect for the winter months, the hot tub is well maintained, and it's awesome to be right by the pier. We spent mornings watching pods of dolphins play, and the evenings were spent in the hot tub enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean. The house is great for multiple families--it allows for privacy while having large enough common areas in which to gather. The house is within walking distance of shops, the IGA, and restaurants, and the kitchen is one of the best appointed of all the houses I've rented on the island.
We have absolutely no complaints outside of the difficulty of parking our five cars when all of us were on site--particularly since the other half of the duplex had a similar abundance of vehicles--but the restaurant next door was closed for the season, so we availed ourselves of their lot without any consequences. I'm not sure you could manage that in the summer, but that worked well for our stay.
If we ever return for a winter vacation again, we definitely hope to snag this house.- Bg_Momof4 , Posted: 01/03/2017Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021. Help us with a new review!
Best Vacation Ever!
Topsail Island is like a secret hideaway that the rest of the world has yet to discover! Our week at the beach was amazing. Everything from the great local restaurants to the uncrowded, family friendly beaches we enjoyed every day! The house we rented was perfect for our entire family, which included a 2month old baby girl as well an 82 year old grandmother. The elevator made settling in and moving out a breeze! The hot tub was a big hit with everyone too. So many great memories were made during our week at the beach. We will definitely come back and do this again!- Robin Lear , Posted: 08/15/2013Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021. Help us with a new review!
We absolutely loved our family vacation at this house in Surf City NC. It offered everything we wanted or needed and everyone had a wonderful time. The location, furniture, decorations, and elevator were greatly enjoyed. Looking forward to returning next year.- Janice , Posted: 07/25/2013Note: This review was imported when our site was created and is older than 5/6/2021. Help us with a new review!
Wonderful Family Vacation!!
We very much enjoyed our stay at S. Shore Drive 106a. Our family enjoyed the beach as well as the convenience to all of the restaurants and shops. The house had every thing we needed plus items for our 4 legged member. We will most likely be back.
Thank you- Tami , Posted: 07/25/2013
This house was amazing. It had everything. There were toys for the beach and the kids. A pack and play for the baby. An elevator so we never had to walk the stairs if we didn't want to. The kitchen was fully equipped. It is in the center of everything. We didn't have a need to drive anywhere. The grocery store was basically across the street and the gift shops were a couple blocks away. There were many restaurants nearby as well. The only thing this house was missing was a grill. I would definitely stay here again. We are thinking of booking it again for next year.- Kristine , Posted: 10/04/2012
Place was nice and within walking distance of stores.
Owner updated the dining room chairs while we were there.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 09/13/2012
We love this house.
The house is very nice but we did notice a big difference from last year. This year the house was not clean. The floor had sand all over and the oven still has cleaner in it. (Glad we didn't have to use it). The hot tub had sand in the bottom of it with empty solution beside it so I really don't think it was cleaned and the last thing some of the handles was broken on closets doors. I left two messages on the non-emergence line and never did get a call back. We hope to come back next year but would like to make sure that the issue would be taken care of.- Audra Preece , Posted: 09/12/2012
Great House Well Equipped!
The house and furnishings were all excellent! The location was very good central to most everything. The grand children were able to find and make friends with children their age quickly due to the proximity of the public beach. The restaurant bar next door was noisy. Garbage pick up was inconvenient as the previous guests left full trash and recycle with no space. Parking was a problem and inadequate for a home for 14 guests. We had to park on the street several blocks away. Not a good thing. The other inconvenience was that the Treasury office was 30 minutes away in Sneeds Ferry. You need to have a location in Surf City to pick up and return keys. We enjoyed our stay and will consider returning next year if available when we can get a week for our whole family.- Poppop , Posted: 06/28/2012
My family loved every minute of our vacation in this house. The house had everything we needed. Love the location.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 06/08/2012
I loved the house. I stayed two weeks in april/May and enjoyed every minute of it. The house made you feel as if you were in your own home. Had lots of kitchen supplies so you could stay in and dine with your large family.The beds were very comfortable. The elevator was a pleasure to have when bringing in the luggage and groceries. The view of the pier was amazing.Literally steps away from the house.Sitting out on the decks drinking coffee and watching the dolphins were a daily thing for us while we stayed in the house.
The downside of this home is the location being two doors away from a local bar. The patrons weren't loud, but the recycle pickup at 5am every couple of days was extremely loud. During the day and night every few hours the bar would dump bottles into the trash bin outside. After a few days we got use to it.
The one thing that I wish the house had was lounge chairs to lay out in the sun.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/30/2012
Great Location and House
We have used this house for three summers now. My sister and her family rent 106B which is attached to this house. We really enjoy the location and the houses. Both are outstanding and you can not beat the location as far as being able to walk to stores, restaurants and bars. We have 21 people staying in the two houses and it works great. The only issue we had this year was the houses were not as clean as they have been in the past. There are not grills at either house which prevents you from cooking outside. The addition of grills would be great. I would highly recommend this house to families who like a great family beach and lots to do.- Anonymous U , Posted:
Q: Is there a grill at this property??- Kendra L. Posted: 06/24/2021A:SwipeDrag for Questions/Answers
There is not a gill listed as an amenity for the home. You can bring one or use one of our local companies to rent a grill.Answered: 06/29/2021
