Summerhouse on Everett Bay | North Carolina Coastal Community

Summerhouse on Everett Bay

Holly Ridge, NC

Summerhouse on Everett Bay – Ideal Coastal Lifestyle

Summerhouse on Everett Bay, a North Carolina coastal community less than ten minutes from Topsail Island, is a breath of fresh air. It’s that community where neighbors are like family. Full-timers are the norm. And, the pace barely vacillates from season to season.

Life at Summerhouse revolves around the water. Whether you’re fond of sailing, boating, kayaking along the Intracoastal Waterway, or hanging out by the community’s spectacular pool complex, it’s every water-lover’s paradise. And, nearby Topsail Island, called the “Best Little Beach Town in the USA” by TripAdvisor.com knows how to keep things interesting. Seafood restaurants, boutique shops, and miles of expansive beaches abound.

Coastal Casual Meets Luxury

Summerhouse residents can kayak and paddle board on the Intracoastal Waterway in the mornings eight months out of the year, then join friends by the pool or at the clubhouse in the afternoons. In summer, a trip to the crab traps before dinner is a must. A coastal North Carolina summer evening just isn’t complete a sunset cruise coupled with an incidental wildlife tour.

Are quick trips to town important to you? Perfect. Surf City and Downtown Wilmington are less than 45 minutes away.

And, if you’re design-focused, then you’re in luck. Summerhouse on Everett Bay is also famous for its warm and welcoming signature homes. In each home, luxury blends with coastal casual and open floor plans sprawl. Equally important, (and equally sprawling) is the ocean… just beyond most front porches.

We’re such big fans of Summerhouse’s signature homes that we voted one Summerhouse Everett Bay home the 2017 Ideal Home. Check it out! Then, sign up for the Summerhouse Discovery Travel Package to get in before the crowd.
