Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My sister, husband and I partnered to buy this beach house as an investment. We love Holden Beach and especially the east end where it's quiet. Our family, especially the grandkids, love to come here and they have never known a summer that they haven't come to Holden Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
We loved going to Myrtle Beach, but couldn't find anything we could afford and it was a bit too busy. We love being close to Myrtle Beach for the attractions and shopping, but love being at this quiet small town beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love being able to ride our bikes around the island without worrying about traffic, being close to the beach, no hassle going anywhere, and the closeness to Myrtle Beach.
