Beach Bliss for a Week.
We had a great week at this place. There were 14 of us and all had plenty of space and a terrific time. A couple pairs saying that the beds were a little hard but managed to smile and enjoy the rest.. We so enjoy our room on the 4th floor as my husband and I had had an mishap riding a 4-wheeler a couple of weeks before our arrival and was healing from a broken rib..with having the sitting room in addition to the bed made it easy for him to get away in the evening to rest.. We are in our 70's and don't bounce back as fast. The laundry rooms were convenient , only thing I would recommend and sounds trivial but needed a couple of brooms , dust pan and a large cutting board. Otherwise it seemed well equipped. It was a beautiful site to see the sunrises and the shrimpers . The high tides were magnificent with the full moon .. Another treat for us ,was combing the beach , not only for shells but sea glass and the unique stones washed up on the shore.. It really was a fantastic week at the Hampton Colony.

Beautiful beaches and comfortable home away from home.
Everything was wonderful except the two queen beds were very uncomfortable for my two married children. One couple was pregnant...so they moved upstairs to the other master king. The home w
as furnished with great sitting areas and well stocked. The grandkids loved it. We would rent it next year but we want a private pool for the kids next year. We felt the community pool was not maintained as well as we would like. The two covered porches were wonderful, too. Overall, a great vacation. Thank you home owners and Treasure Realty.

Celebrations despite a few issues
The house was very pretty. The green color was great because when the kids were ahead of us on the beach walk they knew when to turn and go up. The bedrooms were small(especially bunk beds) than many other beach homes we have rented for the same cost and number of bedrooms. We used the rec area not as much as past beach trips because of lack of air conditioning(it's the 2nd garage area) in the hot summer. The rec area seemed like an after thought. The refrigerator is way to small for the house size. The 3 wine coolers were no use because they weren't cold enough to keep our drinks and more food iin. We used 3 coolers and ice. There is a structural issue---The first night(Sat.) we had strong storms that leaked in the 3rd floor into the 2nd floor Oceanside doors and ceiling. This set off alarms 6:30 Sunday morning. Could not determine which smoke detector it was, some are too high. Treasure Realty only told us to open doors and window. Called Fire Dept who gave us help and found the smoke detector causing the problem. Turns out after more Sun. Night storms the water leaking in the ceiling caused the short in smoke detector. Two workers came but said it probably won't be fixed till fall because the house is booked. From the fire dept shutting off all power our cable and Wi-fi went out. We finally figured out the cable but Wi-fi, we tried all normal reseting but still it didn't work. Several calls were made to Treasure Realty but no one ever came for that. We ended with no in house Internet but were able to use the wi-fi from next door but very slow. I know it's a vacation but some of us had to do a little work. We still had a great family time celebrating 3 major events.

Great house, rocky beach
The house is well appointed and spacious. The elevator was great for saving steps for the elders in our crowd. There are two dish washers, but refrigerator could be larger. Maintenance crew was quick to respond to our calls for a circuit breaker trip and the refrigerator not working.
We were disappointed by the condition of the beach in front of the house. While it may change over time, we had to walk through a section of rocky, slippery, beach to get to the waves. Lots of sharp oyster shells were stuck in this material and cut our feet. After experiencing this, we learned that we had to walk south about 4 houses to get around the rocky/slipper/shell conditions.
Still, the beach is always a wonderful escape. We relaxed with family, cooked great meals, played games in the evening and enjoyed some downtime. The weather cooperated with only one partially rainy day and one windy day. Nice!

Fairy tail beach cottage provides the ultimate ocean front exper
One of the most charming beach houses in North Topsail... this is our fourth house with this floor plan, and this is our favorite. The interiors are bright with awesome ocean views, the kitchen is large and well equipped, and the hot tub well maintained and very clean. Its close proximity to the high-rise bridge makes it very convenient to Sneads Ferry shopping and restaurants, and the beach in front of the house is great for shelling and shark tooth hunting. The upper two master bedrooms are arguably the most romantic anywhere. The owners provided a personal local contact sheet, and when we had a few minor issues, they took care of it immediately.
