Have you ever dreamed of taking a "special" vacation? A vacation where you aren't confined to a 12' by 20' hotel room? A vacation to a place where you walk in and say "wow"!? You can make those dreams come true at:
The Beach Dome. This is oceanfront property with a breathtakingly gorgeous 4 story geodesic dome located on the north end of Topsail Island, between Jacksonville and Wilmington, North Carolina. 3500 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 4 baths.
Walk out the doors of the covered 2 story decks, along the private elevated walkway over 100' of stable dunes, down the steps and you are on the wide Atlantic Ocean sandy beach.
You have all the comforts of home - but home never felt or looked like this dome! A vacation dome designed especially for multi-family groups, large families (like grandparents and parents and kids and grandkids) or 5 to 6 couples. The dome has many private spaces in which to retreat along with a 2 1/2 story living/dining room and an open kitchen area large enough to accommodate several cooks and foster togetherness.
Inside The Beach Dome, you'll view the ocean through a 40' panorama of huge triangle windows-- or from the skyloft 55' above the ocean. The open living room has 3 love seats and 2 spacious window seats for reading, napping, sleeping or watching the dolphins play on the waves.
Enjoy meals on the 10' x 30' covered upper deck or inside at the dining table for 10, the 4+ person 1950's diner booth, or the 3 diner swivel stools at the kitchen counter.
The dome sleeps 16+ people. It has 6 private bedrooms,5 of the them have wonderful ocean views through large windows. There is also an upper floor family/TV room that sleeps 3-5 with 2 couches and a pull out "trundle" bed.The family room also has views of the ocean and the sound. The third floor main bedroom has a Jacuzzi tub with an ocean view and a 3rd level deck with panoramic views of Topsail's sound side and Intercoastal Waterway. Two of the bedrooms on the lower floor have doors opening to the lower covered deck. This deck has stairs to the upper deck and a walkway over the dunes with steps directly down to the beach. There are 4 full baths (3 with showers, 1 with tub).
The 4th floor pentagonal skyloft has a 360 degree view of everything, and a hammock. Everything is furnished: all kitchen cooking/eating items, micro-wave, dishwasher, full-size washer and dryer, cable TVs, internet, VCR, DVD player, phone (with free long distance), stereo/AM/FM/CD deck. Sheets and pillow cases are provided (towels are not).
The Beach Dome is in North Topsail Beach on Topsail Island, North Carolina, between Wilmington and Jacksonville along North Carolina's southeastern coast.
On the north end of the island the pace is quieter. Wading, swimming & body surfing in the warm waters are very pleasant experiences, even as late as Thanksgiving. April, May, September & October are wonderful months just waiting to be discovered.
Our small barrier island, only recently discovered by vacationers, is quite different from other resort locations. With many areas still in a natural state, there are no overly commercialized areas, no traffic jams, and no crowds. Here you can relax on miles of powder sand beach, browse quaint shops, play tennis, enjoy a round of golf on nearby links, and dine in excellent seafood restaurants. Each day, the warm, gentle waters of the Gulf Stream bring thousands of colorful shells to the beach - and fossilized shark's teeth, thousands of years old. Dolphins love to play in the surf.
We think we've got quite a unique vacation home. We enjoy sharing it and hope that you will consider it for your next vacation; if not this year, maybe next year.
