                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About: We are a family of 4 and have now seen our kids grow up while owning this house. It is part of our family and our 'Golden Jewel'. We use it all year long when we are not renting it. We love owning this solid home and have put a lot of time, money, sweat & love into keeping this home beautiful.

                      Why Holden Beach:
                      When we were looking to buy a beach house, we looked at a lot of beaches and houses! The first time we walked into this home we told the realtor 'That we are done looking. This is the house we want'. Holden Beach is close enough to Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC (40 miles each way) that you can make a nice day trip there if you like. Holden Beach has been annually ranked in the country as a top 10 family beach. Holden Beach is an island with over 8 miles of clean sandy beaches. There is hardly any commercialization on the island. No building is over 2 stories tall!!! You also have access to some of the best seafood restaurants on the coast or you can buy it fresh and cook it at our home. Crabs are easily caught (Email us for info) and easy to prepare especially at King Krab.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Just sitting on the screen porch and rocking away while starring at the moon is all that needs to be said (with or without cigar and beverage). Or venture out further and walk on the beach and let the water wash away all worries.
