  • We really enjoyed our stay! The place was stocked with everything we needed. Hope to stay again!

  • I had an amazing weekend at Paid Time Off! I went for a girl’s weekend in February and it was perfect. The house is spacious, yet feels like home at the same time. The house has plenty of room for a family vacation, or a multi-family/friend get together. It is beautifully decorated, and the kitchen is fully stocked! There is also a huge movie library and puzzles for the potentially rainy beach day. You don’t need to bring a thing! The views from the house were picturesque, and there are multiple porches to view the sunrise and sunset. The house is located just a short walk away from the beach. There are plenty of grocery stores nearby or fabulous restaurants too. There are also plenty of fun activities nearby as well. My friends and I visited the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center and highly recommend it! I can’t wait for my next vacation to Paid Time Off!

  • I have stayed at Paid Time Off two times, once with my family of six along with another family, and once with a group of friends. It was the perfect home for a relaxing beach getaway. A short one block walk to the beach and beach entry, on a very quiet side street. The neighbors were lovely. The house is very well appointed with everything you could think of to need at a beach vacation. Comfy furniture for relaxing, with cozy blankets, and a very well stocked kitchen, and play cabinet for the kids with books and games. Plenty of room for all the kids to sleep, and play. We loved the two porches with tables, and a beautiful unobstructed beach view. The location in Surf City is perfect, I was able to run every day with easy access to the pier and bridge, and lots of delicious restaurants nearby and close. Grocery stores. This is by far our favorite place to stay in topsail, and we will be back!!
