Just returned from a fabulous week in North Topsail. It was my first time visiting and I will certainly be returning. We rented a house just north the SeaView fishing pier, so we enjoyed watching the fishermen and women, at all hours. The rental was clean and maintained and I absolutely LOVED it right on the beach. Our internet and TV were a little problematic but Treasure Realty handled promptly. We used our neighbors internet for a day or so. Every morning, we were up to catch the sunrise and enjoy the surf fishing and sunning. Watching the ghost crabs was cute as they come out and toss sand from their holes. We didn't eat out, so I can't say anything about restaurants. We enjoyed cooking the fresh fish caught in the surf almost every day. The beach was beautiful and clean, the water clear and warm. We had the full moon, so the beach was a tad bit small at high tide, but this was not a problem for us at all. I was really ready to barricade myself in the house, so I didn't have to leave. It was a great time. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
