Holden Beach house description

TWO WEEKS LEFT IN AUGUST! 'I'm Ocean Front' will take you where you want to be -- a breathtaking unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. Inside or outside, you will instantly relax. Overhead the Brown Pelicans will fly in formation, if you are lucky you will spy Bald Eagle fishing for dinner.

This home is one story with living, kitchen and eating area, and bedrooms on the same level. The ocean front balcony has rocking, lounge, and straight-backed chairs for a full view of the Atlantic Ocean. The balcony in the back overlooks the big dunes. All bedrooms have TV's, and DVD players.

!!!The downstairs room (separate entrance) is great for card games, ping pong, TV, and DVD, or listening to music, It is a place for the kids or adults to escape to for some fun without disturbing those who want some quiet time. I'm Ocean Front is truly a place for all ages.

There is an outside shower with hot & cold running water to wash off that salt and sand before you go inside. The boardwalk on the property takes you to the narrow one-lane road, to steps over the dune (where the deer feed at night) to the beach.

Holden Beach is a very special place for families, friends, and lovers (weddings are a common sight on the beach). There is night life close by if that is your desire, fresh sea food 'made to order' or sold on the island (brought in by the local fishermen) if you want to prepare a seafood feast at home in your fully equipped kitchen (see reviews).

'I'm Ocean Front' is approximately 1 mile from the bridge --- and only 40 paces from the sand and surf. If you want to venture out historic Southport is 19 mi; Old Baldy Lighthouse is just across the Cape Fear River from Southport; back at Holden Beach you can see her light from your rocking chair on a clear night. You can drive to Myrtle Beach, SC for entertainment or shopping. Historic Wilmington, NC is wonderful (pre-American Revolution)- see the Battle Ship of NC or take the boardwalk on the Cape Fear River. Eat at Elisha’s, the Pilot House, or The Dock Street Oyster Bar (all local favorites) for a really good meal.

Of course,,, you can just opt to wind down, play and relax, marval at the wonders of nature and find a star! What ever you choose I promse you will take home a lifetime of special memories.

                            Great location! We had a wonderful time! Cute and very doable with small children. Loved the timing of the turtle hatchings, my boys loved seeing the baby turtles swim out into the Ocean.

                            My family had never been on a family vacation with all 5 of us. We wanted something new and relaxing. I googled best family beach and Holden Beach popped up. Then I looked around on VRBO and I'm Oceanfront caught my eye. I zipped off an email to Beverly and she responded quickly and warmly. Even from a thousand miles away I knew this was meant to be. We booked over a year in advanced and the communication was wonderful. Fast forward to last week. 26 hours of driving with 6 kids between us and we arrived. Stunning is an understatement. The beach, the home, the area were our year of a dream come to fruition. Everyday was 90. The beach was amazing for surfing, sand play and even the 2 year old could enough of the shallows. Every morning started with coffee on the deck. We had amazing family meals together. We only left to hit up the Food Lion, one night out (drinks on the deck are much better than any local hangout) and to take the kids shopping for souvenirs (the shells on the beach are the best ones). I had no interest in crabbing at dark. It turned out to be the most entertaining thing, watching two grown men squeal and chase crabs is hysterical. The teenage girls were just as giggly! This trip brought my family closer and gave us the best souvenirs ....memories! There are no words to thank you Beverly ....you gave us a trip of a lifetime!

                            Owner response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at I'm Ocean Front. Holden Beach and the beach cottage offers a continued view of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean -- from every room if you look out the window. So glad you chose I'm Ocean Front for your beach get-away and left with wonderful family memories. Thank you, Bev Slagle

                            Two weeks at the beach!! That was our dream come true, and "I'm Ocean Front" far exceeded our expectations. From its fully equipped, gormet kitchen--to its living room's big screen entertainment center (now with Netflix!!)--to the spacious front porch overlooking the Atlantic, the whole experience was first class. Even the mattresses are firm and comfortable. We WILL be back. We've stayed in 4 different homes at Holden Beach, and found "I'm Ocean Front" to be the best of the lot. Reasonably priced, located overlooking a less crowded, almost private sectoin of the beach, and conveniently situated to shopping and food: what's not to like? "I'm Ocean Front" is exactly one mile from the Holden Beach bridge, thus a short drive to area restaurants. Although this is not a food review, we'd highly recommend The Provision Company for simple, but good food served in an interesting atmosphere. But the best restaurant of all those we tried is the Inlet View in Shallotte. Words are not sufficient to describe the quality of their seafood.

                            We have rented thru VRBO several times for Holden Beach and this was by far the BEST house that we have rented so far. Everything was wonderful...the kitchen, the family room, the porch, the view ..it was perfect!

                            We had a great time at Holden Beach and was very happy with our rental. The house was clean and well maintained inside and out and provided a comfortable place to enjoy the beach. The walk to the beach is minimal so it was easy access and not too crowded on the water. We were fortunate to be there when a nest of sea turtles hatched so we got to see that right in front of our rental on the beach. The beach is beautiful for as far as the eye can see, amazing to sit on the front and watch waves and listen to the sound of the ocean. The game room was great for the kids to have a place to play and get away from us adults for a little while. We were there during a very hot week but the air down there had a hard time keeping the room cool enough, that's our only negative for the week. We would definitely come back to I'm Ocean Front!

                            Owner response: An additional air conditioner has been installed (2013) downstairs for comfort. The door to the outside does need to be kept shut for optimum cooling. Thank you for your kind remarks and honesty, the feedback is most welcome. Bev Slagle

                            House was wonderful. The owner anticipated every need. The house was lovely and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. It was very convenient walk to the beach. Loved the fact that all was on one floor with limited steps... We just loved the Main Street Grill & Rotisserie for dinner. It has fantastic Ribs and seafood. Would highly reccommend.

                            We arrived at I'm Ocean Front the day after hurricane Irene just missed Holden Beach. We highly recommend this outstanding beach home with a terrific view of the Ocean. The beach house is located away from the hustle and bustle yet close to excellent restaurants near the beach. Bev Slagle, the owner has seen to every need for a beach vacation.We had a wonderful week and enjoyed the front porch and the downstairs game and tv room. We want to return next year.

                            The house is adorable and very comfortable. The location is fantastic and the beach is beautiful. The owner couldn't have been easier to deal with and we enjoyed the entire experience immensely. Can't wait to come back!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: My family loves I'm Ocean Front, it is a place where wonderful memories have and will be made for my family and hopefully yours.

                          Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
                          My husband and I purchased our home on our 39th wedding anniversary. Holden Beach is the first beach our two children ever visited and we took them back every year when they were young. The home has been completely renovated, it is a beach cottage in the true sense of the word and most enjoyable. We have been fortunate to have repeat renters who fall in love with 'I'm Ocean Front'. It is a cottage you want to share as fond memories are made there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          East end of the beach is less crowded and less traffic, yet close to the 'big' bridge to the mainland and island restaurants.. Beautiful view!
