Topsail Beach, NC Vacation Rentals

Topsail Beach on North Carolina's east coast is a warm and family-friendly beach town, with miles of pristine, quiet beaches offering breathtaking views and sunsets. The town lies on Topsail Island's southern tip on the Atlantic Ocean, which also includes North Topsail Beach and Surf City. Neighboring cities include Hampstead, Jacksonville, and Wilmington. It is a beautiful and serene destination for a relaxing vacation and boasts gift shops, book stores, cafes, and restaurants.

Whether your visit to Topsail Beach is a couples getaway, a family vacation, a trip with friends, or a serious fishing expedition, we have the perfect accommodations for you. From a short weekend escape to a dreamy month of paradise, you will find your home-away-from-home that will suit your needs with our Topsail Beach vacation rentals.

Our Rental Properties

We have over 100 beautiful properties available for rent in Topsail Beach, many of which feature private pools and ocean views. 

Property Types

Our vacation homes vary in styles and sizes, giving you an array of options to fit your preferences, accommodation needs, and budget. We have beachfront condos, townhouses, and houses from 1 to 8 bedrooms. 

Condominiums (condos) are similar to apartments as they are part of a complex, but each is privately owned. These units are a great choice if you want to stay in a popular area, such as an oceanfront condo right on the beach, or are traveling with a group of families and want to stay in the same location but have the privacy of separate accommodations. 

Townhomes are generally homes with a smaller footprint, often attached or semi-attached. Some of the townhouses that we have available to rent are newly renovated with modern furnishings and appliances.

Houses comprise the majority of our accommodations. They range from one to eight bedrooms in every style and decor. 

Property Locations and Views

Many of our guests are interested in the location and the views from the vacation rentals. We offer accommodations on Topsail Island with: 

Canal views - these vacation homes are located right off of the waterway canal, a perfect option if you're coming with a boat. With mooring and floating docks, you can have easy and immediate access to your boat. For fishing enthusiasts, grab your gear, hop in, and be out on the water in no time.

Maritime Forest view - these rentals are located near the blissful maritime forest on Topsail island.

Oceanview - see the mesmerizing Atlantic ocean from the house or balcony. In some properties, you can view the water from multiple rooms and angles within the home. These properties are located just a short distance from the beach, as little as just a street away.

Oceanfront - these beach house properties are located right on the beach, sometimes with a direct pathway from the property to the water. Oceanfront homes are the ideal choice for a vacation of sun, sand, and relaxation. Oceanside properties are just off the beach but without a road to cross. 

Sound view - these properties are located near the Topsail sound, or marsh, and offer an opportune view of the beautiful sunsets over the water. The sound may not be accessible directly from the homes, although there are docks in some locations. 

Things to do on Topsail Island

There are many local attractions to keep tourists entertained, including a water shuttle, the Missiles and More Museum, gaming center, skating rink, boating at the marina, and of course its famous fishing piers and the main attraction: the beach. It's not too far from Sneads Ferry, famous for its commercial fishing and the annual Shrimp Festival. Take an intracoastal drive to visit nearby Carolina Beach, or lounge on the sand and shipwatch as the fishing boats cruise over Topsail reef.

Though the year-round population of Topsail Beach is only about 500, their influx of seasonal visitors and tourists can tally a few thousand. Topsail Island is a popular tourist destination and has rightfully earned its reputation.

Each vacation rental's description will include the number of beds, bed types, maximum occupancy and indicate if it is pet-friendly. Use the calendar option to select a check-in and check-out date to confirm the rental's availability. You can also filter by price range and other filters if needed.

Each of our vacation homes lists the amenities they include, ranging from provided beach chairs, towels, and linens, to dishwashers, grills, covered terraces, and fireplaces. We typically include wifi, DVD players, washers, and televisions as well. 

Some beach homes have outdoor showers, a nice feature when coming in from a day on the sand. Large decks are also a big draw, and there are rentals with bedrooms that open right onto the deck. On oceanfront homes, you will feel as though you are sleeping right on the beach. Other beach vacation rentals' amenities may include toasters, hot tubs, baby cribs, a game room, an elevator, central air and heat, a swimming pool, and a car garage.
