Description Description

Quiet respites at the beach are perfect for rest and relaxation. At Once Upon a Tide, a nicely decorated four bedroom, 3 ½ bath dog friendly town home located on a dead-end street in Surf City, you can find such a place. Enjoy the sun deck with ocean views or relax with a good book under the covered deck on the 1st floor. Either way, this town home will help recharge the soul.

Laid out in the popular reverse floorplan style to maximize your views from the main living spaces on the second floor. The open living room, dining area and kitchen are well lit and brightly decorated. The sun streams in through the large windows and doors, leading out to a street side oceanview sundeck. Two seating areas provide ample space for movies or conversation and the dining table seats 8, with room for 4 more at the counter.

We had a great time. Wonderful property and awesome value. We will be back to topsail next year, and plan to book this property (if available, definitely with Ward Realty) again!

Overall, we enjoyed the house and loved being able to bring our dog. The house is bright and it kept us nice and cool during some very humid days! We loved sitting on the upstairs dec, seeing the ocean and being on a dead end street was great for our kids to ride bikes.

Once Upon a Tide was a wonderful beach house! It was new and modern and comfortable! It was so close to the beach that we enjoyed beautiful dunes and ocean views from the second floor deck, where we spent a considerable amount of time relaxing. All of the master bedroom, living and dining room and patio furniture that we used was very comfortable! The house was easily accessible to the beach by just crossing the street and a short board walk to the beach. We were so happy to be able to include our 2 dogs in this vacation rental; this house being pet friendly made the trip extra special!
