Wow, it is beautiful at the beach! This is right on the beach, not across the street, or a beach view, or whatever else. When you step down from the deck you are on the beach!
MY WIFE THINKS THAT OUR GUESTS SHOULD TELL YOU ABOUT THIS PROPERTY AND I SHOULD SHUT UP! So we compromised. I'll let our guests tell you about Amazing Grace first (these all are on the comment page), then I'll sneak in a word:
'We have been coming to North Topsail for over 10 years. Last year we stayed at Amazing Grace for a week in July. It was the most pleasant of all the duplexes we have rented.'
'Amazing Grace is truly a great find! The location is gorgeous, just steps from a quiet spot on the beach, and you can hear the ocean from every room in the house. We found ourselves wanting for nothing during our stay, with the exception of another week!'
Brenda, Alexandria, VA
'We stayed in Amazing Grace for a week with our daughter's family - Our close friends stayed in the duplex beside us with their son's family - So our children and grandchildren spent a week becoming closer friends. This is the 2nd time we have taken a family vacation at the beach and Amazing Grace was the perfect place to stay. It was nicer than the description online and the way it is laid out is wonderful for a family trip. We actually cooked a pig underneath the carport and invited friends and family down for the day on Wednesday. The view was awesome! I took many pictures of beautiful sun rises, sun sets, rainbows, dolphins swimming by and my grandchildren enjoying the beach! The house was in awesome shape and everything in it worked as it should. The owner was awesome - answered all our questions and made us feel like our trip and the enjoyment of it was a priority of his. I recommend Amazing Grace to anyone who enjoys a week at the beach and I hope to stay again every summer.'

'We spent 4th of July at Amazing Grace and it was wonderful! The house was very comfortable. We stayed with 4 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of room! The kitchen is well stocked with appliances/utensils and it was great to have a washer/dryer for all of the sandy towels!! The owner is very responsive and easy to communicate with . . . hopefully this will become an annual vacation for our family!'
Melissa, Avon, IN
'We had a wonderful stay at the beach house!!! We spend hours sitting on the deckâ€¦ and my husband and I loved to wake up and have this view over the ocean. The kids enjoyed running back and forth to the beach.
So thank you very much for having us. We are thinking about coming back next year!'

There's more great comments in the reviews section below, but now it's my turn.
THIS GORGEOUS BEACH DUPLEX IS PET-FRIENDLY - AND IN BEAUTIFUL SHAPE. Some of our guests bring their four footed members of their families and they absolutely love it.
Imagine shrimp on the grill, kids on the beach, and a cold beverage in your hand as you sit on the deck above the dunes. The wide beach invites you to stay all day long.
Amazing Grace is BEACH FRONT. It is not a piano lot, or a view between two houses, or in a condominium complex. It is a real OCEANFRONT house. Sit on the beach or sit on a marvelous deck just a few feet away from the crashing waves.
Do you like to bike or run? There is a bike shoulder on the main road the entire way from the north to south. The island is like 22 miles long, so you can get a good work out.
You can even bike for fun (like I do). Recently I rode my bike to the south end, and the smell of Jasmin and ocean air was unbelievable. I stopped on the far south point of the island and walked around the beach on the undeveloped point. I then rode back to Topsail Beach city hall and said hi to the ladies who worked there. (They had kindly sent me an invitation to pay real estate tax in their city even though my house is not in their city. I graciously declined :-) but they were very pleasant!) I then rode back to Surf City and promptly bought an ice cream cone at DQ just to make sure I hadn't burnt off too many calories, then leisurely rode back to the beach house.
Believe me, this place is fun.
And I haven't even told you about Giligan's, just before the bridge on the mainland side and it's hilarious karaoke nights, or about Sears Landing and its award winning clam chowder made with sherry, or Indigo Marsh - the best restaurant overlooking the sound that you will ever find. Oh, and how about the fresh fish market (I mean right off the boat) behind the Crab Pot where you can get shrimp, flounder, shark or whatever they have been catching and take it back and grill it.
Or you can play 18 holes at Coastal Carolina's only four-star golf course, North Shore Golf and Ocean Club (as per Golf Digest). Perhaps you would like to deep sea or surf fish...or maybe spend an hour with your son or daughter fishing off the sound dock just steps from your beachfront villa. And did we mention riding jet skis on the nearby sound?

WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY REPEAT GUESTS? Well, I let one of our guests tell you:
'We absolutely loved our stay at Amazing Grace. The property was very clean and well maintained. The double balcony views were spectacular. We're so glad we found this place and will definitely be staying here again in the future.'
