Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family of five living in Charlotte, NC. Will and I keep busy trying to raise our three young children.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
Will and I chose Holden Beach and the Great Escape because it is a quiet family oriented beach. We knew we wanted a place where we could let our kids ride their bikes, run and play on an uncrowded beach and a place we could build fond memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located on the east side of the island, the Great Escape is a five minute walk to the beach, the inner coastal waterway and local restaurants. The outdoor shower allows you to get cleaned up after a day of playing at the beach or after a long walk to the pier. The inverted floor plan lets you enjoy the views while rocking on the front porch and relaxing with the gentle beach breeze. The kids can enjoy a variety of books, games, puzzles and toys.
