Awesome Vacation Rental: Idyll-by-the-Sea on Topsail Island, NC

When four families were searching for a last minute New Year’s getaway, we couldn’t believe our luck to have found this jaw-dropping oceanfront gem of a vacation rental on North Topsail Island, North Carolina, available at a relatively affordable price.

Right after the Christmas holidays, three nights were open before the next weekly renter was to arrive.  With every amenity you could possibly imagine  (including heated pool, pool table, in deck hot tub, ping pong, elevator, not to mention the drop dead gorgeous private 4th floor spa suite with spectacular Jacuzzi,  sauna and steam shower) this house is beyond spectacular.

It easily boasts the most well equipped kitchen with every gadget you could possibly imagine.  This kitchen is so well organized that  Martha Stewart would run out crying in shame if she walked in.

All said, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this house rents for $12,950 in the midst of summer.  But off season last minute weekends are totally do-able, particularly with several families sharing the cost.  Our 3-day weekend totaled approximately $500 per family, and all felt it was a bargain.

Best of all, and arguably the most unique quality, this house is doggie friendly!  Judging by the level of cleanliness, you’d never know.
