About the area

Beautiful pristine and uncrowded beaches on this barrier island just 35 minutes from ILM (Wilmington NC) and 20 minutes from Jacksonville NC (Camp LeJeune Marine Corps Base). Definitely NOT a touristy place. If you're looking for night-life, this is NOT the place for you. If you're looking for BEACH with lots of QUIET...this IS the place to come to.

What a fabulous time we had! It was just the right place for us. A beachfront cottage with the sand and ocean at your feet. Who could ask for anything more!

“Lovely beach cottage”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2015

This small but efficient beach cottage is only 50 feet from the sand. It is incredibly quiet: located on the north end of the island, it is next to a lot that will always be vacant. Amenities are minimal, but we were looking for beachfront and quiet, and this fit the bill perfectly. Owner was incredibly helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

“C-Gull IsThe Place To Be.”

From one of the most private areas on the island, C-Gull is a personal paradise. Imagine being able to walk across your own porch and onto the soft and pure white sandy surface of Topsail's finest. As our vacation, it has been our second time returning to Topsail and has been the most perfect trip. The cottage itself was spectacular, offering an extremely comfortable living space for a small family or get away couple. I looked for a place on Topsail that didn't allow pets or children, due to allergens and keeping the cottage as clean as possible. This was the only cottage that I could find to accomidate my personal preference. During our stay, the cottage was cozy, cute, and clean. It is exactly as advertised and has every possible item you may need within your stay. The property is simply oceanfront and the ocean is only a few steps away to an uncrowded beach, even in July. The owner, Marilyn, was personable and attentive and made the transaction easy to work with from beginning to end. This vacation didn't have any problems, exactly how it's supposed to be; stress-free. We will definitely return to C-Gull cottage. -Forrest, Lynda, and Alexandria

“Love this cottage!”

Once again, a relaxing week with lots of sun, ocean breeze and an uncrowded beach. Cottage is comfortable and sits far off the road. Nothing negative about it.

“Great week at the beach!”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2015

Quiet cottage on a pristine stretch of the beach. Great time spent with family. The cottage is definitely beach style, but not over the top - felt like home. Would definitely return!

we never stayed here, the owner did not even take the time to answer my email and let me know if the place was available for that weekend.
