Welcome to our second vacation property, the Pearl by the Sea. Pearl by the Sea is a custom built home constructed in 2012. We purchase the Pearl in 2015 and have been renting it as a vacation rental since then.

The Pearl is adjacent to the Flip Flop Inn and sits on an ocean side lot at the end of a private cul-de-sac in the Village of Stump Sound. It has unobstructed ocean views (we own the ocean front lot in front of the Pearl and do not intend to build on it). We have equipped the Pearl in much the same manner as the Flip Flop Inn - with all the amenities we'd want in our home.

The Pearl accommodates 12 vacationers. On the first floor is a Master Suite with a King bed, a bedroom with a Queen bed, a bunk room with two bunk beds, and a second full bath. The main living level is on the second floor. On this level you will find the kitchen, dining area, sitting area, a half bath, and a Queen bedroom. The third level provides a very special Master Suite where you will wake up to beautiful ocean sunrises. Moon and star gazing are a favorite pastime on the private deck connected to this awesome suite.

The Pearl features an elevator connecting the ground level, first floor level and main living level, perfect for assisting elderly family members or just unloading the car on arrival or after a shopping trip.

Outside amenities include a sitting area with table, an outside shower, and a patio with a camp ground style stainless steel grill, perfect for grilling those hamburgers and hotdogs we all like on a summer retreat. We also provide beach chairs, lounges, and toys for the beach.

Kitchen amenities include a stove, refrigerator, oven, microwave, toaster oven, blender, Keurig, standard drip coffee maker, Belgian waffle maker, griddle, crock pots, and well stocked dinnerware and utensils. A second refrigerator is located in the ground floor entry.

Bob and I have been married over 40 years. Bob graduated from the Virginia Military Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Civil Engineering. Susan graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Business Administration. Our family bleeds wolfpack red since Bob also took graduate courses at NC State, both sons graduated with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Engineering and one daughter-in-law also graduated from NC State. We have five gorgeous grandchildren. Throughout our married life we have dreamed of owning a beach property we could call our own. In 1996, we took the leap and purchased a plot of sand in the Village of Stump Sound in North Topsail Beach. It remained an empty plot of sand until 2005 when we built our dream retirement home and gathering place for our extended family. The Flip Flop Inn was born. In 2015 we purchased the Pearl by the Sea next door. We have been creating memories with our extended family every since. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
