Property description

Rent our comfortable and restful cottage on one of the Top Ten Family beaches in the country (Conde Nast). The best feature of the cottage is the sunset view of the salt marsh from the sun-room. The separate downstairs game room with game tables/darts/video allow adults and kids to get away from each other. Dock on Canal allows easy Inter Coastal Waterway access.

Holden beach is 45 minutes south of Wilmington NC and 1 hour north of Myrtle Beach SC, 30 Minutes from Southport NC. There are wonderful restaurants and sightseeing in Wilmington. There is great shopping and night life in Myrtle Beach. Antiquing and car ferry access to NC Aquarium and historic Civil War site from Southport. Holden is a family friendly beach with wide sandy beaches and lots of shelling and good surf fishing and a fishing pier on the island. There are several seafood restaurants in the village and pizza and sandwich shops as well. There is a Walgreens and Food Lion in the town so grocery shopping is easy. There are delis that cater family meals too.

We rent Sunday to Sunday. Most beach rentals are Saturday to Saturday, so our renters miss the rush on check in day, and have fewer folks on the beach the Saturday before you leave, because they are checking out Saturday morning.

A cash deposit of $500 and Visa or Master Charge credit card for security against damage (we don't require a security deposit) will hold your reservation. Balance of rent is due two weeks before check-in.

If you have any questions, please send us an inquiry and we will respond by email, or call, if you give us your phone number.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have always enjoyed watching the sunrise and set across the large salt marsh that can be seen from our sun room. We watch many types of birds and deer play in the marsh. We plan an annual treasure hunt with our grandchildren that includes clues over the island and prizes and ends at the inland waterway park at the end of our street. The children look forward to hunting or helping plan the hunt each year.
