Beautiful house in need of repair
This is a lovely house, but unfortunately, there were numerous items that needed repair. The sliding glass door from the living area to the beachfront deck was inoperable, so everyone had to use the door from the master bedroom. The garbage disposal was broken. The pool had a leak, which meant it had to be filled constantly with cold water from the hose. Most disturbing was that fact we had a cockroaches in the lower bedrooms, even after an exterminator was called out.
If these items were fixed, this would be one of the nicest houses on Topsail Island. It is beautifully decorated and the layout is perfect. The decks on both sides of the house offer fantastic views and the beach was absolutely perfect.

The house was very cmfortable.
We had two families staying (10 people) and it was plenty of room for everyone. It had lots of bathrooms and T.V.'s in everyroom. The kids liked the pool and the beach was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked. The outdoor shower is dark and useless.

House has several Dvds for children and several pool floats. You will want to bring a gate if you have a little one you don't want falling down the steps. Nice area that is not crowded, but still a short drive to shopping and restaurants. Be aware house to the left allows pets and the people staying there had 2 dogs that barked all the time including during the night. Woke us up around 1am almost every night. Pool is above ground with a wood deck around it. We were worried about splinters, but had no problems even with 2 toddlers and 2 teens that never wore shoes. Liz takes care of the house and was great. We had to call her about a couple minor issues and she was right there to take care of them. Very helpful and nice.

A Great Week
Courteous, helpful staff made the process of renting the cottage easy and enjoyable. The cottage was well-equipped, pretty, and comfortable. We expecially enjoyed the easy beach access and the pool. A definite favorite of everyone were the tidal pools that formed during the afternoons.

Topsail is the greatest
Very large house. The best equipped house I have ever rented. Very good condition. I was disappointed in the pool and the changing room. The pool was leaking water and had to be refilled by us eventhough it was too cold to swim in.The changing room was extremely dark and the doors too heavy for children. It tooktime to even find the "secret room"
