Welcome to Southern Grace. Opening its doors in May 2015; Southern Grace is an extravagant, newly constructed manor that simply takes your breath away. One of the largest beachfront rentals in the country, this house has a unique design through and through, evident when you first approach. However, once you take a look around, the magnificence of it becomes clear. Outside, you will enjoy the Tiki Bar, large in-ground pool (32'x14'), dance floor, and ample covering from the weather’s elements-perfect for shade in the summertime or providing the covering for your wedding. Don’t worry about privacy; Southern Grace is built over an acre of land, making private parties or family fun that much more intimate.
The house is nothing short of a dream away from home. With plenty of parking and sleeping for large groups, you’re sure to feel accommodated for any family or social outing. The house features two magnificently oversized suites overlooking the ocean, along with 5 additional suites with king-sized beds and lavish décor. Seven fully furnished bedrooms housing double queen beds compliment Southern Grace’s living experience. Two additional rooms contain bunk beds, making it a perfect haven for your kids to have fun, enjoy their stay, and sleep tight. Let them play in the oversized room, outfitted with double queen beds along with the popular double queen built-in bunk beds, while the others enjoy their time in a room equipped with double queen beds and one twin bunk bed.
With 18 bathrooms, it’s a guarantee that everyone gets their fair turn at a hot shower. Don’t worry about lines or complaints, this house accommodates everyone sufficiently. There are even four showers outside! Furthermore, there’s a bedroom within the manor which is handicap accessible, including a handicap bathroom as well.
Just when you thought this dream house couldn’t get any more convenient, it boasts a large, residential elevator to help with moving in and out and just to enhance your stay.
The living spaces in this house are nothing short of breathtaking. With two giant living spaces on each floor in addition to a second living room on the second floor, you will find it hard not to sink deeply into the comfort the house provides. Lining the rooms is a wide array of luxurious windows, bringing in the natural light from outside and only adding to the sumptuous ambiance. If you aren’t tempted to spend all your time in the great room, venture to the separate movie/game room, featuring a prodigious HDTV, a game table, and a foosball table for additional entertainment and fun.
While we’re talking about entertainment, let’s talk about the 19 television sets placed throughout the complex. There are massive TVs installed in the common areas, with smaller sets in each of the bedrooms, making it ideal for everyone to have something to watch at any time. Cable provided on the 3 common room TVs and Roku on the bedroom TVs. Also, having an in-house collection of over 30 DVDs lets you catch a late-night hit movie with friends and family. Need internet? Not a problem. Lightning-fast 400 Mbps of WI-FI access is indeed available at your fingertips. This makes it all too perfect for the late-night workhorse or internet surfer.
If you’re in the movie/game room and find yourself getting parched, please enjoy the kitchenette equipped with a microwave, sink, and drink refrigerator. This is a fun palace for the kids or kids at heart or a convenient oasis for club or church meetings. If you’re starting to feel peckish, take your appetite to the extra, extra-large, luxurious kitchen area, where 3 refrigerators, 3 state-of-the-art ovens, 2 microwaves, and a 10-burner cooktop make you feel like you’re on the set of a Kitchen Network show. After dinner (there is seating for 52 or more if you use the couches), explore the popular beverage serving area. Enjoy cocktails, coffee, or just some juice with your little ones.
While you’re kicking back, take advantage of the large, private heated pool (extra fee to heat). If the sun isn’t for you, or if you’ve just simply had enough, venture over to the covered area on the colossal pool deck and relax in the comfort of some shade while still being part of the fun. Challenge someone to a game of corn hole, shuffleboard, basketball (bring your ball), ring toss, etc. Once the nighttime arrives, take advantage of the Tiki Bar and showcase your dance moves on the dance floor. Perfect for fun family nights or club meetings where you just need to get loose and enjoy life. The area under the house has stained concrete for a ballroom feel.
There is something for everyone here, as you can play basketball with friends and family while preparing burgers and hotdogs on one of the two gas grills available to you. The entire complex is specifically designed for large group gatherings, so don’t be afraid to invite some extra friends!
This house is about luxury, convenience, and overall quality of life. The inverted floor plan places the main living area on the second floor, giving you a perfect view of the ocean. Throw in cathedral ceilings and you have yourself a palace you won’t want to leave.
Let’s face it-house work needs to happen sometimes. Don’t worry, because 2 full-service laundry rooms complete with washers and dryers make it that much easier to get it done so you can get back to enjoying your stay.
Perfect for a family vacation, retreat, reunion, church event, or club getaway, this complex urges you to take a load off, relax and enjoy the sand and surf from one of the double-level decks on either side of the house. You deserve to be pampered and made to feel like royalty at Southern Grace-so enjoy a vacation at this 8,500 square foot mansion for less than the price for a high-end hotel. Ocean included!
*IMPORTANT check-in/out requirements and pricing*:
*Sunday to Sunday rental (7-night minimum) during summer season (great so you don't hit the Saturday rental turnover traffic). Other check-in days are okay outside of the summer.
*To see accurate rates, search on Sunday to Sunday. Sunday to Thursday or Thursday to Sunday. Those are the only days you can book. I can custom adjust your dates, nonsummer, from there but those days of the week are the only ones that show the correct pricing. Prices accurate to Dec. 2024 (ask about pricing beyond that).
*Special rates for Church groups November through March.
*Weddings are welcome! $1,000 event fee.
*We highly encourage you to buy trip insurance in case your plans change. Large groups plan far in advance to get on everyone’s schedule. And with so many people, things can change or hurricanes can come. We have little ability to re-rent for you to get your money back for any last-minute changes so best to purchase trip insurance. It costs 7% for standard insurance or 10.8% for Cancel For Any Reason insurance (covers you for everything as you do not need a reason). After you book I can send a link to these options.
We stayed here for 9 days - the first half was with family followed by four days of wedding festivities! This home was a perfect size to accommodate all the guests with plenty of space to gather, or to escape to when quiet time was needed. We plan to book here again for a reunion of sorts. The weather was perfect the entire time (Aug 29th thru Sept 7th). Having the option of a pool or beach was such a treat, too - felt like a mini resort! And of course, the tiki bar was humming the entire time :) The home has everything you could need and each room was tastefully decorated (coastal style) and comfortable. Greg was awesome to work with! We will be back!Stayed August 2021
An amazing house for Family and Friends. Plenty of room for privacy. Rented the house for a week and got married on the beach with a reception under the house after. Plenty of room and was such a beautiful event. We loved our stay and would highly recommend to EVERYONE!Stayed August 2021
One of the best family vacations to Topsail given how comfortable all extended family members were with their own master bed and bath suites.Stayed July 2021
Greg has been terrific to work with during such strange times. We are going try again next year and hope that more of our group will be able to come to Southern Grace. Beautiful house for large groupsStayed July 2021
This was a great venue. Given all the scare with Covid19 in 2020 we all needed some true family time without feeling like we could not socially distance. We arrived Dec. 29th and left Jan 3rd. So yes, we had a 5 day welcome 2021 party. Greg listing of this property was spot on. With every room having its own full bathroom, that put all of us at ease. The bedroom layouts are great. With 2 full levels of living and extra living rooms along with a game area for the kids, this made hanging out together not a problem. The full porches allowed the older members of my family to just enjoy the moment without concerns. We had a few problems with the heated pool, but Greg took care of that quickly. The kitchen was fully stocked with usable Pots, Griddles and Pans so I did not need the items I brought along with me. Great job Greg. The 3 full size fridges and 3 dishwashers allowed us to minimize our trash foot print. The only downside is the steps to get to the beach. The older members of my family (65+) were not able to make the walk, but they were fine watching us Polar Plunge the New Year in. The people that did not go have already asked me for Greg information, so clearly this is a must enjoy location.Stayed December 2020
Great location for a weekend retreat. Accommodations were as promised with great sitting areas indoor and outdoors for plenty of rest and relaxation. Recommended for team or family bonding.Stayed November 2020
We had a gathering of college friends, almost all of which were over 70 years of age. This property was perfect! Although a few couples could not come over Covid virus concerns, the 21 of us had a great time. The space is amazing! Highly recommend.Stayed September 2020
We had our beach wedding at the house and it could not have turned out any better. We had around 45 guests and we all were comfortable in the house. It’s large enough that everyone has their own space and very quiet for the bedrooms in the front. The bride suite is located below the living room and kitchen so it got a little loud at night if guests were still moving about but otherwise I have nothing but good things to say. Great location, you have your own beach area and it’s quiet.Stayed September 2020
We rented the house for our extended family vacation ( 21 adults and 10 kids) and had a wonderful time. The kitchen accommodated all of us easily for cooking and dining - plenty of refrigerator space and cook tops. The pool and tiki bar was a big plus giving us a other hangout besides the beach.Stayed August 2020
