Topsail is home to 3 smaller beach town, 2 bridges and 1 traffic light. Topsail Beach, Surf City and North Topsail Beach all have many private beach cottages available for vacation rentals. These personal get-always range from 8 bedroom houses to one bedroom condominiums. Oceanfront, private pool, pet friendly, whatever you’re looking for in a vacation is waiting for you at Island Real Estate located smack-dab in the middle of Topsail Island in Surf City. This classic beach town offers kayaking, surfing, paddle-boarding, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, boating or just plain sitting on the sand. The evenings offer dinner in one of the casual style restaurants with menu fare ranging from fresh local seafood to succulent steaks to multi-national specialty items. After sampling our wonderful cuisine you’ll need our 26 miles of bicycle paths and 10 parks to burn those extra calories. Come experience that wonder that is Topsail Island.
