Description Description

Breathtaking ocean views await you on every level of this spacious, three-level, 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, getaway.

At the price of Oceanview, with ease of Oceanfront, the sand is mere steps away. Beach access is directly across the single street from this ideal rental. And don't forget to bring your fur-babies to this dog friendly rental.

Just 2 miles south of Surf City Pier and 1 mile north of a historic Bumblebee Tower sits the Barefoot Bumblebee. Enjoy one of the quieter stretches of the island while being close to dining, entertainment, and shops.You’ll enjoy plenty of space for your whole family in the comfortable living room and around the large dining table (with an available leaf for further enlargement plus four bar height counter seats.). The roomy kitchen includes everything you need to prepare fine coastal cuisine.

FUN FACT: Did you know that the Bumblebee portion of the Barefoot Bumblebee’s name pays tribute to the rich history of Topsail Island? An original Operation Bumblebee tower stands just a mile away. Not long after the end of WWII, from 1946 to 1948, the United States began a program testing rockets to be used in modern jet propulsion, spacecraft, and missiles. The program, “Operation Bumblebee,” was named because, like the missiles of the time, bumblebees should not be able to fly.” And yet they did. More Topsail history can be found at the Missiles and More Museum, located just down the road, in the heart of Topsail Beach.

We really enjoyed our stay at Barefoot Bumblebee. It had plenty of seating in the dining room and living room for our family. The number of bathrooms is great too. It had all of the kitchen items you could possibly need and even had books and games available for use. It was clean and cozy. The proximity to Surf City is great and so convenient. You have to cross the road to the beach access but it is just steps away and you have a great site line both ways for traffic. The fact that it is across the road makes the home higher in elevation so the views from the decks were gorgeous. We would definitely stay in this home again!

Property was in very good condition, very close to crossover which was very convenient. Booking was easy. Got into the property early which was nice. Appreciated the drink fridge, was handy. Appreciated having the couple chairs left for us, helped with what we brought.
