The “Lime & Coconut” oceanfront duplex property on North Topsail Beach is the fulfillment of a dream shared between two sisters, Dawn and Deanna, from Michigan.
The area was first explored by Dawn while on a summer vacation in 2013 with her husband and young daughter. The sisters, Deanna and Dawn, had been looking for a place where they could escape from the harsh Michigan winters. They believed the Carolinas would offer what they were looking for and it did not disappoint.
Why we chose North Topsail Beach
After exploring the Atlantic coastline North of Myrtle Beach and visiting many of the interesting beach communities, the family came upon a tall bridge rising high over the Inter-coastal Waterway and leading on to North Topsail Beach. As they reached the bridge summit, the panoramic view of the island completely took their breath away. Dawn could barely speak, but managed to uttered these simple words, “This is the place…this is it…there is no other place for us!” So the family set out on a mission to find an oceanfront home that would connect with them, and one which would translate all the warmth and charm exuded by Topsail Island itself.
After considering several available island properties, they came upon a house on the edge of paradise that spoke to them. They immediately nicknamed the house “pinkie” for its pink stucco exterior. It was a tall beautiful duplex with character and personality, but one that was also “tired” and needed some love – a fixer upper for sure. So a discussion ensued between the sisters and a plan was crafted to purchase both sides of the duplex. In January of 2014, a significant renovation project was collectively undertaken to restore both properties and breathe new life into them once again. Deanna stayed at the property through most of the renovation, overseeing the work and doing much of the interior painting, flooring, and finishing work herself.
What makes this house unique
The Lime & Coconut beachfront duplex has undergone a complete renovation with new windows, doors, siding and roof. It literally has the look and feel of a brand new home and has become the talk of Topsail Island. We are genuinely thrilled to share our special beachfront homes with other vacationers and to offer them an extraordinary vacation experience on North Topsail Beach.
