Exactly as advertised, perfect spot, easy checkin!
Best vacation ever
Shore’s Bliss was everything plus more. Kitchen was well equipped. The mattresses on the beds were nice. Only bed that seem to need mattress help was the pyramid bunk 😢. Even the pull out sofas slept well. Cannot say enough great things about the porches! We spent most of our House time on the street side porch! It is wonderful. The outside shower is a definite plus and big enough to accommodate an adult with children to wash! Short walk, very short, to the beach directly off the deck. The beach is roomy and clean and family oriented. We went out to eat a couple of times at Daddy Mac’s and ShakoTaco. Can’t say enough about how wonderful food was at both and priced for families on vacation! Overall a wonderful experience!! Highly recommend!!
Glad to hear that ya'll had a great time!
We will look into the pyramid bunk issue to make sure all beds are comfortable.
Hope to see you again on the island and thank you for being our guest.
Great beach house with plenty of room and a fabulous back deck!
The house has plenty of room and is at a great location! The back deck has a wonderful ocean view! The gates are perfect for keeping kids from running on ahead to the beach!
I will admit the downstairs had a little bit of a musty smell as if it had been wet at some point, but wasn’t bad enough to warrant us complaining. You cannot smell it any where else in the house.
Otherwise, this house is perfect for families or a group of friends or couples vacationing together. The beach access, space, and set up is on point. When we vacation to the area again, we’d definitely consider staying here if we need the space!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your time in Shore's Bliss.
As for the smell you mentioned, due to high humidity in the coastal area, sometimes we do have a slight musty smell in downstair portions. If a home is ever flooded, we do a complete water remediation.
Hope to have you back soon.
My new happy place
I would love to say I hated this place but I would only do that so nobody would ever book it when I wanted it. Took my 2 young grandkids (infant and a toddler) and my 2 adult daughters. The kitchen has pretty much everything a person could want to cook with and there is a charcoal grill to use. The concept of having a basement mini-apartment helped with having privacy as the people downstairs have everything they need. There were a couple sand buckets and some games in the closet that was nice. Living area is decent but honestly was never really inside except in the evening. Bathrooms are sufficient - nothing fancy in this home but it is still very nice for our needs.
The deck.... I woke up in Iowa this morning as my first day back and the thing I realize I miss most was that deck! It is awesome and has an outdoor shower for sandy feet to be rinsed. The location is about perfect - close to the main town area but not too close. Walking out to the beach is a breeze - No hauling coolers etc. because it is close enough to run back and grab food etc. if needed. Overall it was just a great place and we are coming back in 6 months.
Please don't say that you hate it! :)
Glad to hear that you had a great time and experience in Shore's Bliss and we appreciate your review and even the comedy!
Look forward to having you back again in 6 months!
House is a total dump. We have stayed at many places in Topsail. This one by far the worst
Site was dirty. A lot of the house was in disrepair. TV did not work. Shower door was broken. Paint chipped off of many things in the house. Mattress covers were badly yellowed. All the doors had dirt all around the door handle. Other than the porches and decks, nothing about this facility was good.
This review is puzzling to us and has some omissions.
Two of the guests were in the property for 2 days with no complaints and apparently were satisfied. After two days, some other guests showed up and began to complain.
After attempting to address their issues, we elected to move the guests to another rental and they seemed satisfied with the new rental.
The property itself is an older home and priced as such. The home was not dirty as it had just been cleaned prior to the guest's arrival. There are always maintenance items to address with older oceanfront homes and the owner does stay on top of them as they come along.
Fun Beach House
Well equipt for all kinds of activities. Enjoyed the bikes, which were not mentioned in the description of the house. One of the bikes definitely needs maintenance. Great view on the back porch facing the ocean, with a continuious breeze. Outdoor shower was very nice. Kitchen was wider than in picture, and allowed for several to work in there at once. It was also well stocked with items to cook meals for a family.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a positive review and we are glad to know you had a great time.
We will pass along your comment on the bikes.
Look forward to seeing you soon back on the island,
