Should I stay on sound or ocean side in North Topsail

I am looking at renting a house for the week of June 16th. I have the option of renting a house that is virtually beachfront or one that is on the sound. I was wondering if soundfront would be more buggy than the ocean side. Also, how is the area between 2nd Ave. and 14th Ave?

I do not familiar with the location you are writing about, but we were on the ocean side in North Topsail. We LOVED it!

Our rental home was awesome!

Choose Ocean Front. That is where you will be spending your time and it will be so much easier being ocean front than lugging your stuff from the sound side or driving and parking.
