there are roaches in the bedrooms and kitchen. the home is otherwise clean and well decorated, but we are afraid to put things in the cabinets due to the bugs.

Wonderful Vacation
Oct 2021 • Family
We traveled to North Topsail Island, NC last week. The trip was amazing!! The weather was low 80’s and sunshine, there was one day of scattered rain but was still able to enjoy the beach. We stayed at the “Hyacinth” home and it was right on the beach. Perfect location and not super busy. Several wonderful seafood restraunts- The Crab Pot, Topsail Steamer and Low Tide to name a few. . There is also an amazing donut shop- the Fractured Prune. We highly recommend this area to anyone vacationing with young children and teenagers.

A great vacation destination
Sep 2021
My family love going to Topsail Island. The beach is great, the area is less crowded. Just a perfect getaway trip for the family. This is the 4th year that we planned our trip and already have planned for the next summer.

Great Beach

This was a fan tastic beach. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting a comfortable beach vacation without the commercial side of the usual big name beaches.

Ashe Island is beautiful.

I have been going to Topsail since I was a baby. Ashe Island is my favorite place on Topsail Island. It is a 560-acre island and it is beautiful. It is the best place in the world!

Treasure Realty Unhelpful
Aug 2021
We enjoyed the beach at Topsail. We did not enjoy the way we were treated when we arrived at Treasure Realty. Since part of our party had driven thirteen hours through the night from Upstate NY with a young child, we stopped by Treasure’s office prior to around 2PM PM to ask for some consideration to move into our condo as early as possible. Our situation was clearly and politely expressed to the Treasure staff. When we returned to the Treasurer office at 4:00 (the appointed time to pick up our keys) having not heard anything from the office before that, we were told that our condo had not yet been cleaned. After watching other parties stream into the office to get keys, we continued to sit and wait for another hour. No call to warn us that the cleaning crew was running late. That was not a friendly way to begin our relationship with a Realty Company we had never done business with before, and never will again. Attitude is everything and theirs was poor and unwelcoming.

Treasure Reality, Surf City NC Sucks!!
Jul 2021 • Family
Finally able to return for our yearly trip, sadly COVID, put a damper on it last year, so being able to come was a WIN, alone in its self. We always rent a house on the ocean with beach access, just be use it is easier with kids and to be able to watch the sunrise in the morning with your coffee. Anyone who has been to the ocean knows that you want the able to be right on the ocean. So now on to the rest of the “vacation”
The place we rented from the description and picture was going to be the perfect place. A, 11 hr drive and waiting 4 hrs for the house to be ready just built the anticipation as excitement up so much. Finally got to get into the house, unload the car and get inside and the disappointment, that ensued was not even fully evolved! Mainly the interior of the house was hidden well in the pictures, all the walls were panel board from the 80s, but besides that lets check the rest out, well ok so maybe it isn’t as bad….. it is just walls…… well day two the fridge hadn’t even gotten the adult beverages cold by the next afternoon! Nothing in the fridge was cold! Great!!! The afternoon it got worse the A/C couldn’t keep the house below 80! Considering it was 96 during the day, 90% humidity, heat index over 100 everyday! The shower head in one bathroom literally fell off the shower pipe, the one thing that got fixed, the bathrooms, outdated and literary worn out, like faded and just grungy! The saving grace was the view. Yes the rental company was informed of all the issues, no response from them! Freaking horrible. Needles to say we have been coming here for 8-9 years and never have ever experienced this kind of shoddy business ever! Worst experience ever. Apparently the rental company is the “main” rental place here….. and I would equate it to them being a slum lord!!! Freaking joke! I hope VRBO finds out and people realize this and they go out of business!!!
NEVER RENT FEOM TREASURE REALITY, in Topsail Island, Surf City, or surrounding areas in North Carolina!! Only thing guaranteed is horrible horrible place to stay that is so so far below the standards that you would expect for the amount you pay!!!!

I was told that I should visit Topsail Island and I absolutely fell in love. The island consists of three beaches: North Topsail, Surf City, and Topsail Beach. There is a campground near Topsail beach. Surf City has everything you need as far as food and supplies and has a beach town vibe. Topsail is mostly cute residential beach homes. The beach was pristine and relatively private. Will definitely visit again.

Fail
Jul 2021 • Couples
There isn’t any affordable places to stay so I had to book a hotel quite a ways away. I used public access parking and payed for the whole day. I still got a ticket from a hateful dude riding in a golf cart with the sole mission of collecting more revenue and picking on people who are just trying to relax. The spot I parked in was designed to look just like a parking spot! This is a private company and not even law enforcement. This want-to-be-cop got in my face when I explained that it was a legitimate parking spot. The bathroom facilities plumbing didn’t work well and the toilet had crap in it. Very dirty unkept place yet they had no “out of order” signs. Very few spots to eat at.
I love NC beaches however this on is a fail!
