Fabulous Beach Getaway for a large family!

This property delivered on everything promised. It is the perfect place for a large group with a variety of ages....there were 18 of us from 7 months to 70 years and this home provided lovely views, easily accessible beach, beach equipment, and a fully equipped kitchen. We spent most evenings on the lovely porches that surround the house enjoying a glass of wine, wonderful views and good conversation. Susan and Bob provided all the information anyone could need going to an area they had never been before, and they were very responsive to any inquiries we had before and during our visit. While we did tour around Surf City, and the information packet we received had a plethora of information about restaurants and things to do in the area, most of our group didn't want to leave the house, ocean and pool! We would recommend that you take a couple of hours to visit the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center....the line is always long, but worth the wait to see the work the volunteers are doing there. I assure you if you choose this property for your visit to Topsail, you won't be disappointed.

Perfection at the Beach

We used Flip Flop Inn for a family reunion and had 6 couples staying there. The house was perfect. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, which was perfect. The main living area was large enough and open enough to allow everyone to gather together and watch TV, read, cook, work on puzzles, or chat. Everyone could do what they wanted while still being a part of the group and interacting with each other. The bedrooms are large and well appointed. The kitchen is so well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans, flatware. There are two dishwashers that made keeping up with 12 hungry people a breeze. The views are wonderful. Each balcony has it's own special view of either the ocean or the waterway. There is a spacious hot tub that got much use. The access to the beach is so close that it takes about a minute to be there

Bob and Susan have thought of everything. This house is amazing and we are having a wonderful time. We don't want to leave! Kitchen is so well stocked that our gourmet cooks have been in heaven. We have four generations here and all can't stop talking about this wonderful vacation. We will definitely be back! Susan has been simply fabulous to work with and has made this the most welcoming of homes

We love the flip flop!

This is our second time staying at the Flip Flop Inn. We really love this house. The primary disadvantage is the walk around the other property to the beach, but it was worth it to have the large bedrooms, the great views, the personal touches that this home has. We all feel like this is the house that we would buy and decorate if we had our own beach home. There's plenty of parking, the house is well maintained, there are more than enough diversions (tv, video games, toys, books, beach accessories) and we had a great time.
