Beautiful beach days!
This is one of our families favorite beaches on the east coast. I live 1 hour from the outer banks and prefer topsail island over that any day. I highly recommend it as a vacation destination. Especially if your looking for a more laid back and not so crowded beach!!!- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
Best house on the beach!
We have been renting houses on Topsail Island every summer since 2011. This was, by far, the absolute best house we have ever rented. Yes, there were a couple of issues, but nothing that adversely affected our vacation. I'll start with the cons of this house:
' The bathroom in the queen bedroom had a leaky faucet, but you could not hear it with the door closed.
' The couch is a cheap leather/pleather and has clearly been patched. The patch was peeling badly.
' The sliding glass doors were hard to open and close because they were somewhat stuck.
'Shower heads are very old. They get the job done, but are pretty yucky.
'Very small washer/dryer combo unit. If you have a large family, plan on doing a lot of small loads.
That's about it; very minor issues.
Here are the pros of the house.
'It's location is perfect. About 2 miles from downtown Surf City, but far enough from the crowds.
'Every bedroom has an ocean view that you can actually see the ocean and hear it.
' The house has a fantastic carpet, except in the kitchen and bathrooms. My 19 month old and dogs had no trouble navigating the stairs or playing in the floors. It looked brand new.
'Inside stairways! I hate climbing outside stairs that are covered in bird poop and slippery.
'A hot tub'need I say more?
'Really good appliances. Microwave looks brand new.
'This house is huge at just under 2500 sq feet. There were six of us and two dogs, and we had plenty of room to live.
'Smart lock. No need to stop and check in/out. Just use the code.
'Great decor. Not a cheesy thing in sight.
'Beach toys, chairs, boogie-boards, etc.
Bottom line, we've never stayed at the same house twice, BUT we've already reserved this house for next year. I highly recommend it.
The one thing I'd recommend to the owners would be to invest in appropriate sized deck gates. A regular baby gate is too small and the plywood provided is way too heavy.
I'm attaching a panaromic shot of the view from the top deck. Hopefully, it isn't too distorted.- Hanna562018 , Posted: 05/06/2021
Good Rental but could be better
We rented this house from Treasure Realty for part of the week over Thanksgiving. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return again one day.
Location: The house is on a nice stretch of beach, more sand at high tide than other places we have stayed on the island. It is on the main road through the island so there was traffic out front that you could hear when sitting on the back porch overlooking the beach, however it wasn't that bad.. However, it was very quiet in the house and you didn't notice the road. It is close to shops and restaurants and a couple of good parks.
Layout of the house: There was one king size bedroom on the top floor along with the kitchen, dining and living areas and a half bath. The middle floor had two master suites, one with king and one with queen and two other bedrooms (one with twins and one with a bunk) that shared a hall bath. The lower floor had another room that has a bunk, seating, table and a very small TV. It would be nice if the owners would invest in a larger TV for this room and re-arrange so the seating faced the TV. The kids were hoping this would be a room for their video games and movies but the TV was way too small.
Condition of the house: Overall the house was very clean however this is where there is room for improvement. The carpets are in awful condition with a significant amount of stains. A house that allows pets really should have something easier to keep clean like tile or engineered hardwood. The shower heads in a few of the bathrooms either let very little water out or sprayed in all directions. Both the microwave and dishwasher did not work when we checked in and this really shouldn't have been an issue if the realty company had addressed appropriately. The dishwasher was repaired but the microwave could not be fixed and we were told Wednesday afternoon that they would come back with a new one. They never came. The microwave wasn't a big deal until late Thursday and Friday when we wanted to start re-heating Thanksgiving leftovers. We checked out Saturday, still no microwave.
Other: We really enjoyed the hot tub, it was perfect for the cool November evenings. It would be nice if the owners could install some type of permanent gates for the porches on each level to help keep the dogs in. Would just be a nice touch for their four-legged guests. Wi-Fi worked very well. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of dishes, silverware. Nice to have TV's in all of the bedrooms.
Overall we enjoyed staying in the home and had a wonderful holiday with family. We would rent the house again.- Emily M , Posted: 05/06/2021
The most ultimate vacation with family and friends
This was our first time renting a house on the beach. Upon arriving to the house, it was as beautiful as the pictures online. The home was gorgeous with everything you needed, I recommend using the linen service. It felt like we were staying at a friends house. The beds were comfortable, and the house was very clean. We did have a broken dryer and called the maintenance #, they said they would send someone right out, but it was the next morning before he showed up (had to rewash the clothes).
Getting up early and sitting on the upper deck with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise was spectacular. The pelicans flying over was a sight to see.
Can't wait for next year, already reserved for the same week. The only thing we wish they had was a good grill.- Beach Bums , Posted: 05/06/2021
We had a great time when we stayed at this place. The kitchen is fairly well designed, there is plenty of seating, and the bedroom distribution is great.- Keely Godwin , Posted: 05/06/2021
Our family goes to a beach house on topsail every year for 4yrs now and we just loved 3by the sea. There was plenty of room and 3 master suites which is so un usual. The deck ares were great since that is where we spend a lot of time , and the hot tub was great , on the deck and overlooking the ocean. The family /kitchen area was great plenty of room and comfy couches, even a deck to watch the sunset in the front, we will be going back this oct and would recommend 3by the sea. The house was also nice and clean.- Janine Hurst , Posted: 05/06/2021
Great Stay, Great Price
House was very clean and organized, and had everything provided. Kitchen on the third floor made carrying groceries difficult, but go shopping once at the beginning of the week and this won't be an issue. Right on the beach, spacious parking, and beautiful views of the beach, both north and south. House can accomodate many, many guests while maintaining comfort and privacy. 1710 S. Shore Drive makes for a great vacation.- A Flipkey Verified Reviewer , Posted: 05/06/2021
