Don’t Throw it Away - We all buy more than we need when wecome to the beach for vacation ~ too much cereal, too many cookies and chips,and the list goes on. If you do not want to take it home or don’t have room to take it home, donate it to Share the Table, a food pantry in Surf City dedicated to helping food insufficient families in our community. All unopened items are needed and greatly appreciated as our neighbors continueto climb out of the pandemic and even in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. There is a crate labeled “Share the Table” in the entryway to the Shipwatch Villas office area. Place any items you have for donation in the crate, and they will be delivered to Share the Table for distribution to families. Thank you in advance.

Little Free Library is now located at the North Topsail Beach Park next to the Pavilion and in front of the playground. The library houses gently used books in case of bad weather (or a bad sunburn) or when you just want to stay inside and read. Feel free to take a book or two andreturn them when you are finished or, better yet, return a book you read that you are willing to share with others on the island. Books are of allgenres welcome, including children’s books. Books are changed out weekly. Happy reading!

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.
