A 2nd downstairs den is a great place to send the kids to play and hang out with their own TV/DVD. This den also has a queen pull out sleeper sofa (Note: the den does not have a door and is open to the hallway, so is not a private area like a bedroom) 3 more bedrooms (1 queen, 1 queen, 2 twins) and 2 more bathrooms are on this floor, as are the full size washer and dryer.
There is also High Speed Internet, an outside hot/cold shower, lots of rockers, a gas grill, a charcoal grill, a quick walk to easy private beach access (approximately 7 houses down) and a picnic table. There are also approximately 6 beach chairs and a pull cart in the outside storage room available for your use at the beach..
Linens for all beds and the sleeper sofa are provided from Memorial Day to Labor Day with weekly rentals only. Guests are required to bring or rent towels.
Holden Beach is the perfect place to relax, read, jog and bike. Stretch out on the long wide beach, fish at the pier, enjoy the water slides or putt putt at the nearby pavilion. Lots of nearby golf courses. If you are lucky, you may see a turtle hatching one night!
Holden Beach has been ranked in the top 10 Beaches by National Geographic Smart Traveler and is in the Top 30 overall beaches of the AAA Vacation Travel Journal.

About the owner: When not at Holden Beach, we reside with our son in Charlotte. We've enjoyed many fun-filled family vacations at Holden Beach. We hope you'll enjoy our place as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach: We have been coming to Holden Beach for years and love its laid back attitude.
The Unique Benefits at this House: During certain tides and moon phases, the marsh behind our house fills up with water. It is absolutely breathtaking! We often see Island deer and egrets in the marsh. It is fun to relax on the back deck and watch the boats go by in the Intracoastal Waterway.
