“Cute cottage, great location, great beach, great owner!”

person found this review helpful

We fell in love with Topsail Island! This cottage was clean as a whistle and had all the amenities of home. The owner provided a great experience, and it was nice to find the place "as described." The beach is right across the street, and this beach is awesome....super clean, not crowded like Myrtle or OBX. This beach really is beautiful and it is nice to not have to walk through a crowd looking for a spot to make your camp. The water is so clear/green here! The sound is amazingly beautiful as well. We rented a boat and went down to the south end of the Island and anchored to a secluded beach...we felt like we were in the Caribbean! Something hard to believe since we were only 4.5 hours from home in NC! The water was so clear. We really enjoyed the Restaurants and shops just to the South, vs. the busier area up near the bridge. We enjoyed Beach Shop & Grill (wonderful food, we went back our last night for a 2nd time), and Breezeway (doesn't look like much from the outside, but has stood the test of time), good food, (a little cheaper than Beach Shop & Grill). Personally, we recommend avoiding the Crab Pot Restaurant as you come across the bridge...we wish we spent that money at one of the other two restaurants previously mentioned...but the market out back does offer wonderful fresh selections if you prefer to cook at the cottage. If you are up for a short drive down to Smith Ave or Scott Ave and cut right over to the Sound, there are two little public beaches on the Sound...highly recommended (we went there two days due to the recent shark activity and lack of waves for our 1.5 yr old daughter). We did not have enough time here...a week is not enough! The cottage was just perfect for myself, my wife and our 1.5 yr old daughter. We also loved this place because we could bring our dog! This cottage is very conveniently located, and with the beach being such a short walk, my wife and I could take turns spending time at the beach during nap time for our little one. We will be back! If you are a first time visitor to Topsail like we were and you are debating where to stay...look no further! This place rocks and we just cannot say enough good things about it! :) The price was very reasonable in comparison as well!

Thank you for the wonderful review and the great information on all your island finds! We didn't even know about the public sound side beaches. That is a nice way to stay cool and swim with zero shark fears. We are also convinced that we MUST rent a boat...we've been talking about it ever since the boat and jet ski business opened just over the bridge. Hope to see you again soon! Susan

“The comfort of home, just steps from the beach.”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Seagull's Landing, and would definitely return. It seemed that every comfort of home had been thought of and provided. The biggest plus for us was being able to bring our dog to enjoy the week with us. The 2 bedroom residence was clean, and comfortable. We also loved having great wifi to stay in touch with friends and family. Having a grill was terrific as well - we grilled almost every evening. Finally, Susan was incredibly responsive, provided excellent service, and always seemed to go the extra mile to be sure we enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

“Wonderful cottage; cozy and comfortable; perfect for moms & kids trip!”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was our 2nd annual moms & kids trip to Seagulls Landing and we were again delighted! Susan and Kimberly go above and beyond to ensure their guests have a wonderful experience while in Surf City. The small things are what matter most and we always feel like guests instead of customers when we stay! Lovely cottage; relaxing screened porch, cozy bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 full bathrooms, large living room, fully furnished kitchen with washer/dryer! You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay at Seagulls Landing :)

“The Purple House”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

That is what we refer to it now, the Purple House, and we always will. When we go back to the beach we will make sure we secure the Purple House for our stay. It was like a home for us.

Everything was perfect. The direct access to the beach, the screened front porch, the generous amenities, and of course, Susan, the host.

It was easy to relax, I even fell asleep on the front porch patio furniture while listening to waves at night.

While some folks enjoy the new luxurious 4 bedroom homes sitting oceanfront, I much rather prefer the Purple House. It sits just across the street from the beach, and boasts a coziness you can't get at a hotel or a 'beach mansion'.

You can have a home at the beach, all you have to do is book Seagulls Landing (Purple House).
