About Ted Waltz
We are originally from Kennett Square PA which is near Philadelphia. Debbie grew up in Williamsville NY which is a small town near Buffalo NY and moved to Kennett Square after going to college in the Philadelphia area. Ted grew up and lived most of his life in Kennett Square prior to moving to North Carolina. Teds parents both worked in the school system in Kennett (his father as a teacher and his mother as the school nurse). Ted was a Mushroom Farmer (that region is known for being one of the largest producers of fresh Mushrooms in the world). We both still have family in Kennett Square and in Buffalo but they enjoy coming to visit us in North Carolina (especially in the winter!). Our three children are grown now and one is in Vet School, one is a middle school teacher and the third is working on his graduate degree in engineering. We currently live on a small farm outside of Raleigh in Apex NC. We have 2 Rottweilers, a St Bernard, 2 Peruvian Paso horses, one Paso Fino horse and one miniature donkey. You can also frequently find our daughters' dogs (an Australian Shepard and an English Bull Terrier)
Ted Waltz purchased this Townhouse in 2011
Why Ted Waltz chose Surf City
We purchased this home in August of 2011 as a place to come and get away for a little sun sand and relaxation. We have been coming to Topsail for 30 years and our three children have grown up enjoying the beaches and looking for sharks teeth in the sands of Surf City. We used to travel here from the Philadelphia area because the beaches were so clean and private. We've always felt it was worth the trip and met many who traveled much further than us. Topsail is a wonderful family place but it is also a place where fishermen and surfers can share the beach and enjoy the long season of warm crystal clear water. In the fall we would stay out all night and wait on the beach with our children for the turtle nests to hatch. Vacationing in Topsail has always been worth the trip. After 30 years we finally bought something. This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm, and inviting too. This property represents a home away from home for us and I know you will find it warm and inviting too. Since we already know Topsail will charm you, we want the home to charm you too! We made a real effort to renovate this vacation home and its bedding and furnishing so that you will definitely want to return! You will find our homes stand out from the crowd by the attention to your comfort and enjoyment. From our reviews, we think we hit the mark!
What makes this Townhouse unique
We love that we can walk to the beach front restaurants and the fishing pier. We also love that we have a great view of the ocean from our deck sitting in the high top chairs. It is really nice to have a private beach access and not to have to cross the street to get to the beach. It really feels like beach / ocean front without ocean front prices and that makes it very affordable for people to get a high quality rental in a fantastic location.

Finally found a nice rental to return to next year
The house was awesome, it had everything we needed. We even packed much lighter because of the wonderful washer and dryer. Our dog loved it too!!
First time renters.
This was our first experience with Vrbo and this property. We were very pleased with both. We hope to be back again.
The location of this property was fantastic. Practically, beachfront without the big sticker price. The distance from door to beach is even shorter than in the pictures. We could send our kids to go to the bathroom or grab something from the house independently. The house was a great size for our family of 5 and I loved we could bring our mini aussie with us. So many businesses and the beaches in Surf City are dog friendly. The beds were as described, very nice and comfortable. Half mile walk to the pier and restaurants was easy for the kids, no complaints about the distance! Lots of shark teeth, we came home with about 30!!! We were very happy with our stay and with owner Ted.
First off, Ted is so wonderful to work with. He is easily accessible and answered all of my questions. The property is exactly like the pictures online. Checking in at 1pm is definitely a plus. The covered car port is really nice and large. It was great to store all of our beach chairs and umbrella down there and not worry about it being taken. The property has nice furnishings and a large tv in the den. The kitchen was fully stocked. The beds were nice and comfy. The fan in the bunk room was out of order during our stay but we didn’t need it. The washer and dryer worked great. We spent all day on the beach and the water was so blue. We couldn’t get over all of the shells and sharks teeth!! The proximity to everything was convenient and we enjoyed restaurants like Daddy Mac’s, Sears Landing, Riverview Cafe, and found that The Daily Grind has the best coffee and icecream. All in all, our week was amazing and I appreciate Ted so much!!!
Stay @ surf city
Nice stay and we enjoyed our stay. The deck had a wonderful view. I did think the cleaning crew need to pay a little more attention to the cleaning, but over all a nice vacation was had by all.
