(maximum occupancy 12-24 people)

  • Beds/Occupancy: Published rates are for up to 12 people. There is an additional $495 fee per person (per week) above that. Maximum occupancy is based upon a discussion with the owner (as we have just added bunk beds in the Boy's Bedroom).
  • Week/Daily: Rates are based upon a seven day Sat to Sat stay -- ask for rates for any other stays.
  • Daily Maid Service: Daily maid service is required for one day of your stay (optional other days), at a rate of $100/day (or $60/day if four or fewer bedrooms are used, OR $120/day if over 16 people). The service includes having the beds made (not changed), clean towels changed in, vacuuming, taking trash out, etc. For example, a weekly Saturday to Saturday stay would have maid service on Wed. Due to the current pandemic, all daily maid service is temporarily discontinued.
  • Cleaning Fee: The cleaning fee is included for any stay in summer of five or more days (except special rates). For other seasons, and stays less than five days, the cleaning fee is extra.
  • Pool Heat: Available all year. Pool Heat is included in rates for June, July, and August. For other months, pool heat is optional and can be added for $495/week.
  • Hot Tub: Hot Tub access is included in the prime seasons. Out of season, access to the hot tub is optional and can be added for a $185/week fee.
  • Dog Fee: $150.00 per dog per stay
  • Linens: Idyll Two includes luxury Italian Anichini linens and Cuddledown linens for the baths and beds, initial supplies of paper products, a full range of Molton Brown amenities and soaps, featherbeds, down pillows, beach towels, towels, beds made in advance, and beautifully monogrammed robes.
  • Parking: We recommend a limit of six cars at Idyll. There is no on-street parking allowed in the subdivision, as restrictive covenants provide for no parking anywhere other than garages and driveways. Vehicles parked on the street are subject to towing at vehicle owner's expense. Please consider this when making reservations or travel arrangements.
  • Taxes: State and Local taxes currently total 13%. The applicable current tax rate will be used. Please note that in early 2019, the tax rate changed from 10% to 13%.
  • Wedding parties: Idyll-by-the-Sea is now offering a gorgeous, upscale boutique wedding package with the most fabulous local chef in the venue of our oceanfront home. Weddings of up to 45 to 50 people, on an all included basis. This includes options for the rehearsal dinner, the wedding day; flowers; chairs; tables; staff; the chef to make it; clean up; everything. Please contact us for more details and pricing.

About our Rates Idyll-by-the-Sea Two is a totally different house than any in North Topsail Beach. We found a huge deep lot (481 feet; the largest oceanfront lot in Ocean Sound Village) with plenty of room and privacy, and designed this retreat with every amenity in mind; We aim for a true five star rental experience, as experienced in the best resorts.

Every piece in this house is handmade; either custom designed for the house itself or a beautiful but functional antique. We have featherbeds, Italian sheets and towels, robes, and all sorts of real, wonderful art. And we pride ourselves on the care we take in our homes -- keeping maintenance up, paying extra for the best managers and cleaners so the house stays immaculate, etc.

We have vacation houses in different parts of the country, and cater to folks who are used to extremely high standards. Once people discover us, they keep coming back. For example, in our Seaside home, folks came back year after year after year. Some of those Seaside regulars are now booked into this North Topsail Idyll. One guest from Christmas this year in another of our homes is booked into yet another of our houses for next Christmas. We treasure loyal wonderful guests, and hope they feel like they are using the beautiful vacation home of an absent friend - really - that is our mission.

But this house is not for everybody, and we know that; just like Marriott has everything from Fairfield Inns to Residence Inns to Ritz Cartons in its chain. All are very nice, but not geared for the same groups (and we have stayed at all three of those brands depending on what need and purpose is at the time).

This is a direct quotation from one of our guests this past August at another one of our homes:
"5 Star Rental accommodations. This house was by far the most pleasant, CLEAN, user friendly home we have come across to date. As designer or 'Art Director' for an upscale quarterly magazine, I get to see a lot of homes all over the world. Most of the homes that we showcase are for sale, not for rent. But if there is ever a slot for a 'how to' set up rental properties, this home should be the bible." More guest comments
