    From the owner: Hi Amanda! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Agreed; you can’t get much closer to the beach and ocean than what is offered at Salty Wave. You recommending Salty Wave to family and friends is one of the best compliments that we can receive. We’ll look forward to hosting you again on your next trip to Topsail Island.

  • Coming back!!!


    Exactly as advertised! The location was fantastic with super easy beach access. It met all our expectations! We stayed with our 8-week-old baby and the place was impeccably maintained. I highly recommend it, especially due to how close you are to the ocean. We will definitely be coming back!

  • Very comfortable with a Million Dollar view


    My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this property. It was very comfortable and fully furnished. It’s is right on the ocean where you can see hear and smell everything. I really enjoyed waking up with a cup of coffee sitting out on the balcony.

    The location is ideal for someone that wants to get away and stay on the beach. It’s is further from shopping and dining than some might prefer.

    The only real negative for me was there are significant fees added onto the nightly rate including a cleaning fee. That is understandable however the checkout procedure requires you to strip beds, remove all trash and load the dishwasher. That feels to me like it should be included in the cleaning fee.

    COCKROACHES! Crawling on the furniture and many on the balcony! I typically don’t write bad reviews but people need warning about this condo. I had friends fly in from out of state and the story of our weekend was huge cockroaches instead of a great vacation! I contacted the owner immediately, the following day he sent an exterminator who left a note saying he “didn’t see any bugs”. The owner then ‘Door Dashed’ us a can of Raid. The next day the housekeeper just showed up, wanting to verify we had bugs. She saw them, didn’t clean it, said she would let the owners know. The condo was not clean, sheets were dirty, the trash can had dried food/liquids down the front of it, glasses were dirty with one having lipstick on it. The beach equipment is mainly unusable. They are missing pieces of the chairs and rusted out. The view is beautiful but we weren’t able to sit out there after dark due to the cockroaches. They’re all over the balcony. The beach equipment is kept on the balcony and had cockroaches on the chairs. We slept with the lights on in the condo at night to try and keep them out. This was our experience, choose another condo.

    Hi Brenda, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and we would like to share some insights from the homeowner:
    -Since the day we acquired Salty Wave, ensuring an exceptional guest experience has remained our topmost focus. We take immense pride in consistently going above and beyond to deliver this experience. The multitude of 5-star reviews we've received is a testament to this commitment.
    -We assertively challenge the negative comments regarding housekeeping as well as bug infestation in this review. Our claims are substantiated by the input of our dedicated maintenance personnel, the housekeeper responsible for the condo, and an independent exterminator who conducted an inspection of the property. We stand resolutely behind our reputation as hosts and the impeccable reviews we have received.
    Our commitment to all our guests is to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests as evidenced in all other reviews.
