“THE most amazing VRBO I’ve ever stayed in and my husband (who is very picky) said it was his most favorite of all time. The private beach is THE BEST on the island…” – Erin, May 2022.

This iconic 6-bedroom, 4-bath beachfront property boasts 180-degree ocean views. Wide windows that pierce the panels of the unique dome-style architecture allow for swaths of natural light to flood the space and showcase stunning views of waves crashing on the beach - from almost every room!

Welcome to Seaside Stargazer, a completely refreshed Dome home in North Topsail, NC. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by the scent of the ocean, the sounds of the waves, and the sight of incredible architecture and bespoke stained-glass windows! It’s your very own private 6-bedroom home with plenty of space for 16 people - and even 8 cars. Starting with the private beach access, up to the 4th story indoor crow’s nest with its own hammocks, out to a spacious deck and a private sound side Master balcony, this is what makes for unforgettable sunsets and sunrises inside and out. Seaside Stargazer transforms an ordinary beach vacation into a truly unforgettable experience.

"Stunning views, effortless access to the beach, and the open floor plan allowed for limitless family gatherings. Our vacation was too short to enjoy all this place had to offer." – Cara, 2022

The open concept living, dining and kitchen area enables the entire group to appreciate this space together, but this house also has enough nooks and crannies to give everyone their own special spot!

Snuggle in to one of the living room window seats with a cup of coffee in the morning, or bring a glass of wine out to a Captain’s chair on the deck at sunset. Look out over the open living area and the ocean beyond from the loft above while enjoying the state-of-the-art Infinity game table or settling in for a movie. Or try our favorite, relax on the lower level deck in the Viking Hot Tub and listen to the waves crash while soaking your troubles away.

"Loved the hot tub!!" - Georgianne, 2022

Sneads Ferry is just a 15 minute drive, Surf City is about a 30 minute drive away, and North Topsail Park is only a 6 minute drive. From the house, you can walk to the Public Access Pier, just 14 minutes by foot. North Topsail Surf & Paddle has plenty of beach rentals including surfboards, skim boards, paddleboards, and kayaks!

Here are a few top-rated restaurants and activities in North Topsail:

- Beach Bum’s Pizza Bar & Grill
- Agave Azul Modern Mex & Cantina
- Rick’s Restaurant & Sports Bar

And some more in Surf City:

"Make sure to book a visit to the sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation in Surf City as it was exceptional." – Nora, 2022

GETTING HERE:

Fly into Jacksonville (OAJ) Airport and take a 45 minute drive to North Topsail. Or, fly into Wilmington Airport, just an hour drive away and enjoy the scenic ride along the coastline. With either airport, you can rent a car, take an uber, or order a car service. RDU (Raleigh Durham International) is about 3 hours away.

The long driveway allows for plenty of car parking space. You can fit at least 8 vehicles in the driveway, as our guests are the only ones that have access to it. Please look for our Seaside Stargazer sign in the driveway (it does look like a gravel road) as you can’t see the home at all from the street.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

We are dog-friendly at The Seaside Stargazer, but consider each dog on a case-by-case basis so please tell us about your pup. If you are looking to bring your fluffy friend, we request a $200 refundable pet fee. Plus, please provide us with some details so we can discuss our pet rules further (no dogs on the beds, please). We cap the pet stay at 2 dogs, and at this time are not equipped to allow cats in the home.

Seaside Stargazer is complete with refreshed interiors including new painted walls, new floors, new mattresses, and new linens and towels. The kitchen and pantry is stocked for your convenience. Toiletries, laundry detergent, paper towels and toilet paper are supplied to get you started and our “pay-it-forward” kitchen policy here is a big hit.

We do not offer discounts of any kind. We offer an extremely high level of service, flexibility and a ton of amenities not found in most beach rentals. If you have a specific request, we will do what we can to accommodate you.
