Welcome to Life’s a Beach - an almost ocean front, little peace of heaven on North Topsail Beach.  Enjoy your coffee on the kitchen deck as you watch the boats go out for an adventure filled day.  Unwind there after dinner as amazing sunsets light up the sky.  Relax on the ocean front decks in the evening while the breeze and sound of the waves lull you into tranquility.  Adults and kids will love the under the house hideaway, complete with sitting area.  Bring your portable hammock to put up on the hooks already in place.  Don’t forget your favorite lawn game to play in the open grass area out front.  At Life’s a Beach, we are about relaxing and enjoying all that a beach vacation should be.  Simple.  Quiet.  Rejuvenating.  Fun!!

Please Note: The Town of North Topsail Beach will begin their first phase of beach re-nourishment around the end of November 2019 and the project's completion date is unknown, although work is expected to be paused from May to October due to turtle nesting/hatching season. Currently, we do not have an estimated timeline of where the work will be taking place during this timeframe, but guests can get more information from the Town of North Topsail Beach's Facebook Page or Dune Renourishment Project website.

Don’t forget your linens! Unless otherwise indicated, linens are not provided during your stay. You are welcome to bring your own linens or we provide a linens rental service for your convenience.

Please note, our vacation homes do not have many of the consumable items in stock for guest use (i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc.). Once you book your vacation, we’ll provide you with a list of items that you may want to consider bringing with you on your vacation. The "What to Bring" list can also be viewed on our website under the Guest Services tab. 

Please Note: WiFi signal strength is NOT guaranteed at your rental for remote work or remote learning. We are located on a barrier island and do not have cellular towers on the island. This, coupled with the increase of guests in our area, creates an inconsistent cellular signal that is outside of our control and therefore, compensation is NOT guaranteed.
