About Roger and Ange Urlaub

We began vacationing on Topsail Island in 2004 and fell in love with the area. We have three grown sons; we all reside in Raleigh but try and escape to the peace and quite of Surf City as often as possible. We have a family home here on the island that we enjoy and share with family, friends and our beloved pets.

Roger and Ange Urlaub purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Roger and Ange Urlaub chose Surf City

Amazing location just off the beach. We love sharing this rental so that others can experience the beauty of this unique beach getaway.

Wonderful location! Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here a month in between closing on one house and the next and couldn’t have been happier with our decision to do so. We got gorgeous views of the Atlantic off the deck and the beach was literally our backyard. Some of the most beautiful sunsets could be seen from the living room sofa. It’s even within walking distance to many shops and restaurants in surf city. I cooked dinner nearly every night of our stay and the kitchen was well stocked with all of the essentials you’d need for any recipe.

Roger was super responsive to any questions we had along the way and was a delight to work with during our stay. A true definition of southern hospitality.

My kids are sad to leave this place, despite having a beautiful new place to call home waiting for us. I’m certain we will return soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you Crystal for the kind words. We are glad that you had such a wonderful stay during the construction of your home, and for pointing out for others how nice it is to have the beach out the front door and such great access to the center of Surf City as well. You are always welcome to come visit anytime you wish!

Great place to enjoy a great beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in this wonderful property and we will be going back for a third. It now feels like home when we go. It is so convenient, clean and well appointed. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need, and the views from the porch every day are the best. The owners are so caring and responsive to any request. The location is great -- out of the main traffic but close enough to restaurants and shops to walk if you like, and certainly to bike. The beach access is right at your back door. We highly recommend!

Ocean Front View Without the Price

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Topsail Island and Surf City. This condo is located one row back from the beach; however, the way it sits in relation to the building in front allows for awesome ocean front views. The unit was comfortable, clean and met our needs. It will technically sleep at least six, but more than four (especially adults) may feel too crowded. It is located steps from the ocean and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. Should we return to the area, we would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Mona, thank you for such a nice review which pointed out the benefits of the view, steps away from the beach and close walking proximity to the shops and restaurants too. It will sleep easily a family with up to 4 children depending on their ages, but 4 adults as you pointed out. We look forward to you staying with us again in the future!!

Great place by the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a find. Within easy walking distance (via beach or road) from the main shops and restaurants of Surf City. There IS a beach house directly in front of this block of five units, but this unit is the end one as described and there is a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. As with most places along Topsail Island, there are lots of steps. Just beware. This place is immaculate and it was a pleasure communicating with Roger who was very responsive and helpful during our booking and check-in and stay. We would definitely recommend it to others. Be sure and check out a quirky bar literally behind the unit - one street over. JMs - the best band I have heard in a long time. And The Second Row which is almost downtown on Shore Road has delightful music along with wine and beer. Also liked The Peak Tap House for great beer selection. Be sure and patronize the local IGA just one street over from Shore, near the "three corners" Tried to get into the Turtle Refuge place, but first day of opening was insanely busy. Suffice it to say there are a ton of things to do. The kids will love the proximity of the beach and lots of things to see and do in the area. Hope to return someday.

Owner's Response: Thank you Arlene fo such a wonderful and informative review. It will definitely help other guests realize how special a stay on Topsail Island is and how well situated our rental is to the beach (steps away) and all the fun things to do just a stroll away as well. Hopefully you can come back and visit the turtle rescue hospital-it is a special place too. We look forward to a return visit next year hopefully to get away from the dread of late winter!
