We stayed in unit 1211 at the St. Regis in August 2016 and paid $1,600 for a week. This management company has limited hours so it is a hassle if you arrive late. We also had to pay an additional NON-REFUNDABLE damage deposit of $69...More

Having just returned form Surf City, this was exactly what the doctor ordered! A house on the sand, tide came in, and our steps got wet! The morning sunrises did not disappoint! Plenty of beach for everyone to share. Sea Turtle nests scattered though out!...More

We found Topsail Island to be very nice and quiet. Beaches were not crowded. We stayed in North Topsail. It was a 25 minute ride from our condo to Surf City to enjoy the restaurants. A bit far for us, but just what others would...More

I loved that beach. My favorite thing to do at the beach is to look for seashells. They were everywhere along with some sharks teeth. Our house was right on the beach so it was just some steps and we were there. We are 9...More

I've been coming to Topsail Island for over 30 years! This is a place that has seen considerable development but the beach is so expansive, it can seem like you're the only one around on your section. It's family friendly, dog friendly and just plain...More

Wonderful time in NTB. Not too busy and able to relax on big peaceful beach without people on top of us. I like the elbow room.

Topsail is a beautiful island less than a quarter mile wide at some places nice and quiet with pristine beaches. There's usually a nice stiff breeze to keep you cool. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice place for family and couples...More

We stayed in North Topsail beach. We have a 5 and 7 year old. There are little "pools" from when the tide goes down that the kids played in all week. The beach was clean. We will definitely be back!

Yes. One is indeed around the middle of the island. It's smaller but on the same side of 210 as the beach. Another is just a few miles south of the north bridge near Sneed's Ferry. It's larger, features some trees, and has... More

Daddy Mac's if you can get in. Most romantic? Go to Thomas seafood and produce buy some mussels (frozen) and make some linguine with mussels in wine sauce and eat on your deck watching the sunset
