Escape to Topsail Island


September 21, 2018

As of 9 am, Thursday, September 20, only property and business owners/employees were allowed on Topsail Island. Ward Realty employees are back on the island and checking homes. From our initial reports, some areas on the island have minimal damage yet some are in very poor shape. Our office has power but no internet/phone service. Communication will be slow over these next few days/weeks. You can send emails and Facebook messages and we will respond as best we can. Thank you for your patience. We will update you as often as we are able.

Due to the aftermath of the storm, we are not accepting any new reservations at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you will consider staying with Ward Realty for your next vacation on Topsail Island.


If you are scheduled to arrive and check in on Saturday, September 22 thru Monday, October 1 we urge you to check your email and to monitor the links below for up to the minute news on weather, evacuations, road closures, etc. We will do our best to notify our guests as quickly as we can when it is safe for you to arrive.

Due to the aftermath of the storm, we are unable to take any new reservations at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you will use Ward Realty for your next visit to Topsail Island.
