    Topsail Island has 26 miles of uninterrupted sandy beaches. Designated a sea turtle sanctuary, the island boasts many sea turtle nests between mid-May and October. Tell-tale tracks of the mommas to and from the sea can be seen in the sand in the early morning hours. Encompassing the last 4 miles at the south end of the island, Topsail Beach is the smallest of the three island towns. The only way into Topsail Beach is through Surf City. With no through traffic, Topsail Beach is still a quiet beach town unspoiled by commercial development. There are only 400 residents year round. Surf City is the commercial center of the island. North Topsail Beach is known for its high-rise apartments, condos and resorts along with very large homes. The island is accessed by an old-fashioned swing bridge in Surf City or a high rise bridge in North Topsail Beach.

    Getting there

    Topsail Island is located 40 minutes north of Wilmington, North Carolina (Airport Code: ILM) and 2 1/2 hours southeast of Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina (Airport code: RDU).

    A car is necessary to get to the three grocery stores in Surf City - IGA (10 min), Food Lion (15 min) and Harris Teeter (20 min). There is a very small grocer in Topsail Beach, good for picking up milk, bread and other basic staples.

    Guestbook

    Just returned a few days ago - am delighted to say our experience was a fantastic one!!

    The IVHE trade co-ordinating team could not have been more helpful, in fact my experience with all IVHE staff has been very positive - they really look after you!

    Rodney had been in touch on a number of occasions prior to arrival & was very helpful throughout. This was a surprise visit for Renee my wife - we had arranged to visit our own cabin in Tennessee, but I had added this visit on as a bonus and what a bonus! Of course I had seen all the photographs of the property, but nothing could have prepared us for the sheer luxury inside & the fantastic beach location & views.

    I chose this property specifically because it had an elevator as Renee cannot do stairs. What an absolute boon this was.

    The interior was beautifully furnished & impeccably decorated & appointed. You wanted for nothing - the kitchen was a dream.

    Rodney could not have been more helpful & gave us helpful tips for places to visit & eat. This a quiet beach resort & ideal for a really relaxing holiday which would be ideal for either families or couples. There was direct access from the patio on to the 27 mile long beach with a fishing pier nearby. Also plenty of opportunities to go sailing on the inland waterways.

    As for us, we took a totally relaxing break & just enjoyed the house & beach.

    This was a very positive experience & one we can highly recommend to all - in short, pure luxury in a magic location!!

    Thank you Rodney & Laura - hope to meet you next time Laura. I think you can guarantee there will be a next time, God willing!
