Property description

Come relax at Tranquil Tides, in the Seaside at Winding River subdivision of Holden Beach. Enjoy fabulous unobstructed ocean views with easy beach access across the street. Our home is located at 159 Ocean Boulevard East, on the quiet east end of Holden Beach, less than half a mile from the bridge.

Tranquil Tides is our home away from home, so we've loaded it with our favorite creature comforts, including a surround sound stereo system, 36' HD plasma TV/DVR w/DirecTV movie package-all premium movie channels, Major League Baseball package, DVDs, games, puzzles, and books. But the best part is the fabulous view of the Atlantic - you can see, hear, and smell the ocean from our home.

We love to cook, and fresh, local seafood is abundant on the island. The kitchen is fully loaded with quality cooking utensils, pots and pans, electric griddle, slow cooker, coffee grinder, coffee maker, and a beverage center to chill your favorite drinks. Heading out to the beach? Take along one of our coolers to keep things fresh and cold. The newly renovated, private community oceanfront beach club and pool includes restrooms and shower facilities. And if work calls while you're enjoying vacation, never fear. The entire house is WiFi capable, and there's a desk located in the downstairs office/bedroom.

After a day at the beach, there's no need to bring the party inside. Cook dinner on the Weber gas grill downstairs and relax in the outdoor seating area (or hammock) and watch the sun go down. After dinner, meander out to the front deck to sit in a cozy rocker and watch for dolphins. Then fall into blissful slumber listening to the sounds of the sea on upgraded deluxe bedding, pillows and down comforters. The upstairs king master bedroom is equipped with a Tempur-pedic mattress.

Note--Tranquil Tides is only available as a weekly rental, from Saturday to Saturday. Check in is 4:00 PM and check out is 10:00 AM. Please check the calendar for available dates.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: I grew up in Chesapeake, VA, and always dreamed of owning a place on the coast. John and I found Holden Beach in 1998, about three years into our marriage. We love the laid back, family-friendly vibe of Holden Beach. We think it's the perfect place to get away from it all.

Why Holden Beach:
We love the quiet of Holden Beach. You can always find a spot on the beach, even in the height of the summer season. And if you really want to check out the nightlife, Wilmington and North Myrtle Beach are just 45 minutes away by car.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love having the beach access directly across the street, and the community beach clubhouse with private pool is great fun. We're only a half-mile from Capt'n Pete's Seafood Market, so you can walk to pick up the fresh catch of the day.
