The North side of the duplex will use the left driveway area which can fit 2 cars in the carport and at least 2 more in the driveway. Walk up the stairs to the left side of the home where you will find the entry door with a new awning to keep you dry when you are trying to get in during those surprise summer showers. This property offers Keyless Access, so you'll have no keys to worry about. Your party will be given an access code to use during your stay. Come on in and prepare to be amazed!

    "This was our 2nd stay at Gimme Shelter(North). We stayed here in the fall + loved it! We loved it so much we wanted to come back. Spring Break was GREAT!. We had beautiful weather, great friends + good food. We enjoyed our time at Topsail! We caught some big Blues + Black Drums. We love the house! The floor plan is great! The view from the master bedroom is wonderful. I love sleeping + hearing the ocean! There is nothing like waking up to the view! We will definitely come back + stay at Gimmer Shelter.
