Area Information
Property Features:: The outside of the house is as amazing as the inside. The Flip Flop Inn sits on an Oceanfront-B Lot, with beach access only a few feet away. Beautiful landscaping and ample parking welcome you as you approach the house. A picnic table and built-in charcoal grill make for pleasant outdoor dining. There are six decks/porches totaling over 1650 square feet of outdoor space. Relax on one of these decks and enjoy the glorious views of ocean and sound.

It's easy to rock the day away in one of the many soundside rockers in a beautiful setting as the boats go by on the sound. If you prefer the relaxing roar of the ocean , pick up a few rays in the lounge chairs or take in the sunrise and have your morning latte by the dining table on the oceanside decks. You'll enjoy the audio system throughout the house and on all the outside upper decks. Linens are included with all prime week and mid-season rentals.

Down the street, there is a community pool and tennis courts. It is a 2 minute walk to the pool. by the street or from the beach. Eight seasonal passes are provided, although day passes may be purchased at the pool. You can lounge in one of the chairs provided or sit in the shade with a good book while you enjoy watching your children play in the pool, with bathroom facilities nearby.

You will find our home to be in small subdivision on a quiet , family beach at the end of a cul-de-sac, and a great place for children to ride bikes or have freedom to roam and explore on their own.

You can have it all--ALL the comforts of home, a quiet family beach, spacious enough for large groups to spend special time together, or quiet time alone watching the sunset or the dolphins frolic. Relax in the tower with a book or glass of wine and enjoy the most amazing panoramic views of the island, and all at the 'INN'.

Perfection at the Beach
North Topsail Beach, NC, 28460, United States
Date of Stay
September 26, 2015
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. And don't worry about bringing beach chairs, they have plenty. And if you need some away time from the group, the upper floor room is perfect for movie night, reading or taking a nap. We had the opportunity to be at Flip Flop during the eclipse and the balcony off the upper floor loft area was the perfect viewing area. Even with all the rain we had (we did get two great days of sun) it was a wonderful experience for all of us. We had fun hanging out talking and eating and doing a couple of the many puzzles you can find in the house. I can't recommend this place enough! Thank you Bob and Susan for making your beautiful home available.

Amazing house in North Topsail Beach

Date of Stay
April 19, 2015
We rented this property for our family (12 guests ranging from 2 to 69 years of age) and we could not have been happier with our experience. Sue and Bob were available to help, responsive to our questions, and accommodating in every way, from initial email contact through the completion of our stay in their home. They have literally thought of everything in this home. The kitchen is well stocked - everything you need is there, and it's well organized so that you can find what you're looking for easily. We "only" had 12 in our party, but this home would accommodate numbers well into the twenties with the available silverware, plates, bowls, glassware, etc. The views are wonderful - wonderful from almost every room in the home. You can see the ocean right in front of you, and the quiet water and marshland is viewable from the other side of the home. The top floor widow's peak is amazing and a fun place to spend time. Everything in the home is spotlessly clean, and the bedding, furniture, etc are very comfortable and in excellent condition. We had one of our best vacations at the Flip Flop Inn, and we would recommend it without hesitation. Thanks, Susan and Bob, for a wonderful week!

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.

Fabulous Beach Getaway for a large family!
North Topsail Beach, NC, 28460, United States
Date of Stay
July 19, 2014
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.

I highly recommend the Flip Flop Inn. My family of 15 (8 adults and 7 children) met for a family reunion. The beach house is exactly as pictured. It is very well maintained, clean and comfortable. None of the family ever felt crowded...big great room area, well-equipped kitchen, multiple decks for relaxing, reading, etc. Everything you need for an enjoyable stay is here...even great beach chairs and toys for children. Pool is just a short walk away. It was very easy to communicate with Susan,owner, and she provided a lot of good information. We did use JandS (Jeff and Sue) Custom Creations for family pictures. They were terrific and so easy to work with....call early for an appointment as they are very busy. I just can't say enough about the Flip Flop Inn.....except I/we can't wait to return someday.....worth every penny

The house is gorgeous and well maintained, the views from just about everywhere in it were so relaxing! This house was perfect for our group, all adults got a 'grown up' room; the teenagers had their privacy and the school agers were loving the foose-ball table. The amenities covered just about all of our needs, when we had issues the management company was responsive and accomodating. The owner was patient whenever we spoke, she was just fantastic to converse with. The beach was not at all crowded, and fairly clean as well! One of our party actually burst into tears when we were getting ready to depart, everyone was totally thrilled with the house. Sadly, I was unable to keep my booking for next year due to unforseen constraints - but I would most definitely love to come back for 2015!

We have stayed on Topsail Island many times beginning in the 1960's, but never before in a house like this. From the ground floor, where we loaded our heavy items into the elevator, to the 5th floor loft, with its great view of the island, sound, and beach, this house more than met our expectations. The quality of the infrastructure and furnishings is excellent. The owners offer detailed information on use of the appliances and other ammenities, local attractions, and obtaining assistance and information while on the island. A local property manager is easy to contact and knowledgable. Everything was in excellent condition. For a large group (we had 15: 8 adults and 7 children), this is the best house we have ever found on Topsail Island.

The Flip Flop Inn was great!!! The common areas were all comfortable. The kitchen was well eqipped. The outdoor areas were abundant and awesome! The bedrooms were all comfortable and great places to slip away to , when quiet time was needed. The elevator was helpful for our old dog, and for easy loading. The views were also wonderful. There wasn't anything dissappointing except the weather , but the house made up for the cold! Really good! Enjoy!

The Flip Flop Inn was everything we thought it would be. It was nicely decorated, down to every little detail. The kitchen was wonderful and had every amenity we could have imagined. It was fully stocked with everything. The dual appliances...dishwasher, stove and washer and dryer really added a nice touch. The house was very spacious. The view of the ocean was wonderful...so relaxing to sit and watch the waves. Susan was very helpful. Our family really enjoyed our Christmas vacation at the Flip Flop Inn....especially walking in and being surprised by a fully decorated "beach themed" Christmas Tree. It met all of our expectations, and then some. We had a great time and would definitely come back for another family vacation. It was great to load up the elevator and press a button and have it go to the floor we needed....saved many trips up the stairs!

The Perfect Place for a Family Celebration

Date of Stay
August 25, 2012
Our family loves North Topsail. The lack of crowds is wonderful, and leashed dogs allowed on the beach is a real plus. Flip Flop Inn is lovely. It truly lived up to the online description and photos. It met our every need. (Even with only 12, the 2nd dishwasher made clean-up easy.) The owners' detailed directions, suggestions and hints were very much appreciated. Our many questions were quickly answered via phone or email. Our wonderful week at Flip Flop Inn was in celebration of our mother/grandmother/great-grandmother's 95th birthday. It could not have been more perfect. There were 12 of us from 95 years down to 9 months. The elevator and shower with built in seat made everything accessible to the honoree. The steps over the dune allowed her to go down to the beach (with support.) The deck gave her ample opportunity for ocean viewing. The baby lacked for nothing. Every piece of equipment needed was available. For the 7 and 10 year olds, it couldn't have been better. This is an ideal place for an intergenerational gathering. We would love to go again.

People in the area were respectful and helpful. Listing and video accurately reflected what we going to experience. We were not disappointed. All ten grandchildren, age 2 to 11 enjoyed the time at the beach. The house was large enough to accommodate all of us. There were 21 of us. 11 adults, 10 children.

My family and I, (there were 8 of us plus one small dog) just returned to realty after a wonderful week at the Flip Flop Inn. The house is beautiful and fully equiped just as the listing suggests. Upon arrival to the property, there were no "surprises" as the owners have done a good job of photograghing the inside of the house so you know pretty much what to expect. We spent most of our time at the beach and in the house with occasional visits to Wilmington. I guess there was one surprise and that had to do with the hot tub. My sister thought it silly to have a hot tub at the beach, probably not be used. However, after the first time she used it, she was hooked! Nothing like sitting in the hot tub in the evening, after a day at the beach, enjoying the warm water and ocean breezes! I think we would all recommend a stay at the Flip Flop Inn.

The Flip Flop Inn was the perfect venue for our combined family beach vacation. From ages 8 to almost 80 the entire group had a wonderful week. The home is so-well equipped that we only left for groceries and one dinner out. The kitchen was fabulous for cooking large meals, the deck was perfect for dining and the local seafood from the markets - divine! It is a really well-thought out, comfortable home on a quiet stretch of North Topsail Beach. Susan's suggestions and information package were very helpful in planning a large group vacation. We vowed to return!

This home was absolutely perfect for my extended family of 16! Ample space, amazing views, and the house has absolutely everything you could possibly need!! We were blessed with near perfect weather and made great use of the sand toys and beach games that were provided. The owners were a pleasure to work with, the home was incredibly clean and well furnished, and after touring the area a bit, I believe this house is one of the nicest in the area! It is certainly the one with the best views with the widows peek towering over the surrounding rooftops! We hope to return again each year!!

An attractively decorated property with expansive views of the Atlantic. Spacious interior and accessible elevator which allowed my mother to operate her scooter without difficulty. Plenty of comfortable seating for family meals and every conceivable gadget present and ready for use in the well equipped kitchen. A great place to gather two and four legged friends without feeling the least bit cramped. Susan was extremely helpful and made the rental arrangements effortless. Plenty of little shops and restaurants locally and in nearby Wilmington. Ate out on Christmas Eve at the Boathouse which was very good and even had a veggie burger for the vegetarian in our group. We would definitely recommend this rental!

Our family stayed a week at the Flip Flop Inn, and absolutely loved it. We've been renting on Topsail for almost ten years, and this was by far our best experience. The house itself is really lovely, and sleeps many very comfortably. And what really impressed me were the personal touches - the owners are great and very responsive, and they left us little treats to greet us. The view is spectacular; we spent a lot of time on the main level porch, watching the dolphins play. Also, for a family who likes to cook (we do!), this place is amazing. The kitchen is fully stocked, and so is the pantry! All those small things you forget like spices and matches are right there! So impressed. We loved the Flip Flop Inn and highly recommend it!!

Helpful votes:6/6
We recently returned after a week with 13 members of my husband's family, and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. The left side of the house is partially blocked from a full beach view, but because of the angle of the house, we didn't even notice it after the first day. The house itself had every imaginable amenity -- from kitchen appliances to beach chairs. No one in the family lacked for entertainment right on the property, and the only reason we left was for a night of local seafood. I loved the local Starish Gift Shop right over the bridge, a recommendation of the owner, almost as much as I loved the peaceful walks up and down the beach. My brother-in-law enjoyed the local fishing after putting his own boat in at a nearby public dock. There's so much "local color" in the area, and it's nice to see a quiet beach that is not yet tainted by high rises and neon lights. The owner was more than willing to provide information about everything from the best gas prices in the area to the store that sold her the very comfortable beds, She even gave me a great tip about the soft-close cabinet hardware to install in my own kitchen. I would most definitely recommend this house to families looking for a comfortable yet luxurious home. The owners left no stone unturned!

Fourteen Fabulous Days at the Flip Flop Inn
North Topsail Beach, NC, 28460, United States
Date of Stay
April 30, 2011
We just spent two wonderful weeks at the Flip Flop Inn on North Topsail Beach. The property was beyond our expectations. The pictures don't do it justice. The kitchen was stocked for every possible need or desire one might have in preparing memorable meals. We watched the sunrise on the ocean before enjoying coffee on the deck. Most evenings we gathered again on the deck for wine, dinner, and to watch the sun set. The rooms, most with private baths and TVs, were beautifully decorated. Everyone reported 'sleeping like a baby' in the comfortable beds. This beautiful home was furnished like a home and not a rental property. There were games and beach chairs, and anything else we could want. For two weeks we enjoyed having a beautiful home on the beach. While we were at Topsail, some members of our party decided to try deep sea fishing. Some of us went shopping. We all enjoyed great local seafood. The owners were availble and more than helpful to answer questions. It was the the beach vacation of a lifetime!

My family stayed here for my daughter's wedding. We had the wedding on the beach and the reception inside. The house was absolutely beautiful. Only drawback was there was not a good way to get my 87 year old mother onto the beach for the wedding. The kitchen was awesome. We had everything that we could have imagined needing. The owners have obviously put a great deal of thought into the comfort of their guests. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and celebrate this wonderful occasion.

Our extended family of 13 with ages ranging from 2 years old up to 65 years old ...plus two dogs!! Everyone had a wonderful time. The house was by far the most comfortable and well planned house we have ever rented. Susan (and her husband), the owners, have gone above and beyond to make this house a relaxing retreat on Topsail Island. All you need to pack is clothes and groceries. Everything else you need for a beach trip is already there (and very well organized I might add). We had the unique need of a house that was accessible for a wheelchair. Susan went above and beyond to measure doorways, etc to assure the house would work for this particular need. It worked great!! We cooked every meal in the beautiful and well stocked kitchen. Watched movies each evening on the big screen, kids loved the top room (widows watch) as their special quiet place to watch their TV shows and not be underfoot at all times. The pool was a short walk, clean, never crowded and well monitored. The beach right out the back door with beach chairs and beach toys in excess! It was a wonderful beach vacation for our family! Thank you for sharing your house with us!! We hope to be back next year!

Our group of 17 ranged in age from 7 months to 65 years. The home is spacious, very well funished and equipped with anything you might need. The elevator was a lifesaver for transporting groceries and luggage, and the outdoor showers and half bath were a real plus. We have rented many vacation homes, and I can honestly say Susan was one of the most responsive and easiest with which to work. Our children and grandchildren loved the short wagon ride to the community pool, which was never crowded when they were there. We rarely left the driveway; only to go to the neaby grocery store and out to eat once. It's a wonderful place to relax, read, and enjoy the beach. We hope to return with a group of adults in the fall.

This week at the beach was one of the most wonderful times that our family has ever had. Everything was outstanding -- beautiful house, perfect weather,anything & everything that any family could want or need was there. Bob & Susan Frank provided our family with an experience of a lifetime. All 16 of us loved every minute of our time at the FlipFlop Inn. We cooked all of our meals in a beautiful kitchen - spent lots of time on the beach -some went to the Aquarium in Wilmington - went deepsea fishing - did some shopping - sat on the deck & enjoyed the surroundings - none of us wanted to leave when the week was over. I would highly recommend this house -- it was the perfect place for a family who is spread out across the country to come together & just enjoy each other. We are a family of 16 - the house was perfect for us. We laughed, giggled, ate, drank - the two youngest granddaughters even "staged" a fashion show - we celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary & 2 70th birthdays - took advantage of all that was offered - some did some clothes shopping -- did lots of grocery shopping. All of us agreed we would love to come back another time - this house is the perfect place for a family to regroup & enjoy each other. Thank You Bob & Susan for a "week of heaven on earth".

We LOVE this house! We enjoyed our stay at Flip Flop Inn so much. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and so comfortable, the bathrooms are a dream, and the kitchen is very well-equipped. I always wished for a kitchen with a double oven -- this kitchen has 3 ovens, plus 2 refrigerators. I love this kitchen. The best part is the new hot tub! We very much enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub with a wine cooler and watching the dolphins swim by in the ocean. It doesn't get much better than this! The decks are beautiful - the upper rear deck is a delight at any time of the day or night, and if it gets too hot, we just move to the deck on the front side of the house and sit in the rocking chairs and enjoy the canal view. We look forward to our vacation at Flip Flop Inn all year long -- and are already planning our 2010 trip!

This is a wonderful vacation home with all the features that make a get-away effortless. The views are breathtaking from almost any room. The beach is great, we went swimming everyday. The community pool was good for exercise. We rented bikes for the week from a local outfitter, the neighborhood streets are not congested and you can ride for miles with no traffic. We played tennis at the community court. The grill on the lower patio served us well, as we made almost all our meals there as the sun set and the cooler temperatures with ocean breezes soothed us after a sunny day at the beach. We loved everything. Susan Frank was the best host to work with. She is great and gave us so much helpful information about the area. Grocery stores are close and well stocked. There is a very nice wine store about one mile from the Flip Flop Inn. We loved every minute, it just went too fast. The widow's watch or as we came to call it, the watchtower, is the best place to view sunrise and sunset. Beautiful.

The Flip Flop Inn was the perfect place to celebrate our Mother's 85th birthday. Great beach for swimming, sunning, surfing, and searching for sea shells. House has many amenities--and as everyone says, a great kitchen - stocked with so many cooking utensils and serving pieces. From the beach area looking back, the Flip Flop Inn is a show piece. A block also from the well-kept pool (even though we didn't use it as there were other things to do)! Wonderful great room - and plenty of places to 'escape' if you need to! Homeowners are a pleasure to work with.

We just spent a perfect week at the beach at the Flip Flop Inn. Our family is spread out, and this was the first I've seen some of my siblings or mother in more than a year. The reunion was ideal, due in no small part to the home itself. Not having to worry about linens or an un-stocked kitchen helped us focus simply on being together. We were also so happy to have direct beach access, plenty of sand toys and chairs, and comfortable beds to sleep in at night. I can't recommend this home strongly enough. No other beach vacation will ever measure up to this one for any of us.

We ranged in ages 15 years and up. The house is unbelievable. The view is breathtaking. The kitchen is well stocked. It has everything you can think of. The house is roomy and beautifully decorated. It has everything you need beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, cornhole etc. The added bonus we enjoyed was the Widow's Walk. This house truly has it all.

I don't think I wore shoes the whole week! Gorgeous views, tons of room (kids loved the widow's walk room up top), lots of extras like sand toys and boogie boards, outdoor shower, etc. Susan was incredibly helpful and kind both before and during the rental period. Absolutely wonderful! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with people!

This house is a lovely home with a wonderful location in North Topsail Beach. It is a beautifully decorated home and the attention to detail is evident in every room. The kitchen is a cook's dream with a large work area and every imaginable tool available to assist with your cooking needs. This home is ideal for large families and the elevator is so convenient for those who need to avoid stairs. The views from this house are spectacular and there's plenty of room for everyone to gather on the deck to watch the beautiful sunsets. The dining set up is especially nice so all guests can eat together using the two large tables, and the small children's table. The great room with the large, flat screen TV was our place to congregate in the evenings where we could all sit around and be together in the same room. We can't say enough about this beautiful house. It met our every need, and then some.

Our party included 3 family's; 6 adults and 7 children ages 1-7. There was plenty of room for everyone; it was completely realxing! We didn't do much going out or shopping; walks on the pier and a date night for each family was the extent. We spent our days on the beach; the water was beautiful, and the dolphins were there every day! We enjoyed the cornhole game and the kids had a great time with foosball and air hockey. We used the blender plenty!! and made dinner for all every night! Great kitchen including all of the necessities; we did grill too! The prompt help with the air conditioning and the sandy hot tub was impressive. Thank You for sharing your beautiful home with us! We hope to see it again in the future!

We had a wonderful week of weather and enjoyed the beach and the pool. The house was easy to find and very convenient to restaurants and grocery stores. The widow's watch was a great spot to watch the sun rise and set and watch the lightning from a passing thunderstorm. The house had everything we needed and then some. The big screen TV in the living room was awesome as we watched the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Detroit Red Wings!!!

Where do I start? This rental exceeded all of our expectations. It did not feel like a rental property, but it felt like home! The house is decorated beautifully and offers special touches everywhere you look. It is very spacious, more than enough room for everyone to have their personal space. Bedrooms are large, comfortable and feel like your being pampered. Baths are spacious, modern and so clean.The kitchen has everything you need to cook and serve amazing meals for all. We ended up eating out only once because we had so much fun cooking in. (Grocery store nearby.) Very comfortable dinner seating for a large group.The views are amazing, beach is fantastic and the neighborhood is top knotch. There is so much to do for kids little to big. The game room is fun, wi fi, video games, books, toys and so much more to do. (Hot tub was enjoyed by adults!) However, our kids spent most of their day on the beach. The beach offered a lot of shells and treasures, sand and was very clean. Everyone we met was so friendly. Each vacationer in our group, from toddlers, in betweens, teens, to adults had a wonderful time! We will be back! You won't be disappointed!

Plenty of nooks and crannies to find reprieve to read or have peace and quiet. Wonderful veiws of the sound and ocean. We used their suggestion on where to purchase fresh seafood and on more than one occasion enjoyed the catch of the day prepared in their well equipped kitched which provided for us all our culinary needs for the week. All rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Owners were very kind and made me feel as if I was a long time friend and they wanted to share their home with us. Definitely was a slice of paridise within our means.

Our immediate family (six adult children & spouses, 13 grandchildren, and two of us) from Georgia, SC, and Maryland, stayed at the Flip Flop Inn the week of July 12-19. The house is lovely, and the kitchen is the best equipped of any we have seen in our 30+ years of beach vacations. Plenty of seating space in the kitchen allowed us to eat together at every meal. The rooms are spacious and comfortable in addition to being beautifully decorated. Our children (six toddlers, 6 grade school age, and one college age)all enjoyed the beach...it was wonderful to have private access, and extra chairs and beach toys were furnished. The outside bathroom and showers made it easy for all to clean up before going inside. All in all, we had a wonderful time at Flip Flop Inn. Susan, the owner,was a delightful hostess and checked on us before, during, and after our visit to be sure that everything was in order. We so appreciated this attentiveness to us and to detail. Do check out the Flip Flop Inn.....you will not be disappointed and will have the vacation of your life. Lynn, North Augusta, SC

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. And don't worry about bringing beach chairs, they have plenty. And if you need some away time from the group, the upper floor room is perfect for movie night, reading or taking a nap. We had the opportunity to be at Flip Flop during the eclipse and the balcony off the upper floor loft area was the perfect viewing area. Even with all the rain we had (we did get two great days of sun) it was a wonderful experience for all of us. We had fun hanging out talking and eating and doing a couple of the many puzzles you can find in the house. I can't recommend this place enough! Thank you Bob and Susan for making your beautiful home available.
