You'll be just a 2-minute walk from the ocean; pick your pleasure and spend the day sunbathing, swimming, or trying out a boating adventure on the deep blue! Whether you're visiting for a reunion with friends or family getaway - this charming beach house, named ‘Merlins Magic’ is the perfect home base after a long day exploring the best of Surf City. THE PROPERTY Bedroom 1: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed, Twin Bed Spend some time off of the sand and in the comfort of this charming 1,300 square foot home, where you'll have plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Unwind with the family and watch a show on the living room's flat-screen cable TV, or take some personal TV time in the second and third bedrooms - each equipped with a cable TV as well. While family and friends relax, head over to the kitchen to get a head-start on meal preparations for the night. The kitchen is fully equipped with updated appliances and ample counter space, so the catch-of-the-day can be cooked up with ease. Serve your culinary creation at the 8-person dining table to enjoy good food with great company. As the evening comes to a close, climb up to the second-floor balcony for a bottle of wine with a view. You'll have a front-row seat as the sky begins to dim over the ocean - signaling the end to another day in Carolina paradise. Venture back inside for peaceful slumbers in one of the 3 bedrooms. The kids can stay upstairs, on either the queen bed or twin bed in the balcony bedroom, while others head downstairs to relax on the queen-sized European pillow top mattresses in the first and second bedrooms. THE LOCATION From here, you'll be just a 2-minute walk from the sandy beaches of the Atlantic that Surf City calls home. Spend the day swimming on the local coast, or drive 20 minutes to the southern tip of the island to visit the unbeatable shores of Topsail Beach. Drive less than 5 minutes over to the Surf City Pier to experience some local favorites! Grab some bait and tackle for a day of fishing, or skip the hard part and simply enjoy some seafood at Buddy's Crab House and Oyster Bar! If you're looking for bigger fish to fry, drive 20 minutes to Sneads Ferry for deep sea fishing on the Gulf Stream. Take a boat ride out with Necessity Fishing Charters for a chance to catch Mahi, Wahoo, and Billfish under the all-knowing eye of Captain Ernie. When you feel like getting out on the links, you'll be delighted to find that North Shore Golf Course is located just over the North bridge in Sneads Ferry.

The moment we stepped inside Merlin's Magic I was appalled. Upon opening the door we were greeted with a roach on the floor and a strong, pungent smell of must and mildew. We had to open all of the windows to air it out and...More
