My wife and I had a last minute change in vacation plans to Michigan (due to covid) and after a quick search we selected the Golden Dog Inn. We were not disappointed. Great location to the area, this was our first visit to Topsail. Private beach access right in front. You basically have a stretch of beach all to yourself. Incredible beach views and the most spectacular sunset I have ever seen. From 308B you get both sunrise and sunset (from both decks). The fishing on the beach right there was great. Flounder, Black Drum, Blues, Whiting and Pompano. The rental was spotless and spacious. We didn't bring our dogs but for dog owners it would be perfect. My daughter and her Marine husband joined us for a day and John was thoughtful and said no problem to bring the dogs in for a day. The puppies enjoyed a large backyard and garage for shelter from the sun. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property. Linda and I have been doing beach rentals for decades and this is a good one. I would do this rental again.

We lived in North Carolina for 4 years but had never been to Topsail. We were pleasantly surprised. The beach was private and the ocean was beautiful. We found out the house is very solid as we were there as Isaias reared it's ugly head. We had minor water in the house but came through unscathed. The power was out for 13 hours but that was acceptible. We had a great week with our youngest son and his family (including their yellow lab). Thanks!

The view and access to the beach were perfect for our stay. We had everything we needed. Location was quiet and there were no high houses in beachfront to block the ocean view. We spent a lot of time just relaxing on the deck with the dogs. We appreciate owners that allow one to bring their pets. We will be back!

The location was perfect! The unobstructed ocean view was so nice. We had our coffee and fractured prune donuts every morning on the porch. We spent our entire days down at the beach which felt like we had it to ourselves. Our It was great to have a short walk and private boardwalk to quickly pop back in to check on our dog and fix a quick lunch. This is also great if traveling with younger likes kids we did. The house was clean and perfectly set up for us, our two kids, and dog. We were able to check in over an hour early which gave us an extra half-day on the ocean. It’s a short drive to great restaurants, drinks, and shops. We cannot wait to go back and we would stay here again.

This is a great beach rental. It was clean and had everything that we needed for a great vacation. The owner answered all of our questions quickly. The location is perfect and the private beach access is only steps from the door. We hope to return next year.
