Holden Beach house description

Dock your boat and jet skis right outside your door or walk just 200 yards to a public beach access, fishing pier, ice cream shop, beachware and general store. Miles and miles of pristine beaches, where you can swim in the surf, turtle watch, or just read and relax! Sit on the gated porches while the kids play in the fenced in yard, and watch the boats head out. The intercoastal waterway is just minutes away for fishing. Or charter a fishing trip with one of our many local charter services. Enjoy skiing, tubing or sightseeing on the beautiful, wide waterway. Stop at one of the many waterside restaurants for lunch or watch the sunset over drinks and dinner. Restaurants and grocery stores are on the island or just over the bridge. In 10 minutes you can be at nearby Shallotte, which offers movie theaters with all the new releases and even more dining and shopping experiences. Historic Wilmington is 36 miles to the north with Myrtle Beach only 53 miles to the south. Scenic Southport is 30 minutes by car or 20 minutes by boat. But you'll be glad to come back 'home' to the WillSea and to Holden Beach! We are 'proud of what we don't have.' No high rise condos or hotels to spoil your view! Jet ski rentals as well as beach chairs, umbrellas and any beach toy imaginable are just a phone call away!

The WillSea is a newly renovated home with a bright beachy interior. Open kitchen and living areas keeps the cooks in on the fun. Beautiful hardwood and tile floors throughout with vaulted ceilings upstairs. Use the outdoor shower after a day on the boat or at the beach. Relax in rocking chairs on the covered front porch where you can see the ocean or on the back porch overlooking the canal. Bright and cheerful adirondacks make sitting by the water most pleasurable. The fenced in yard provides security for the little ones. (Sorry, the No Pet rule is strictly enforced!)Two bedrooms with queen sized beds, each with their own bathroom, are located upstairs at opposite ends of the house for your privacy. A large sofa converts to a queen size bed in the living area. Downstairs is another bedroom with a queen size bed, another bathroom and den. A great place for the kids to 'get away' or for another couple. Two dining tables as well as a kitchen island can seat 10 people quite comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped to take advantage of the local produce stands that offer delicious local produce, while fresh seafood is available throughout the island and mainland for the gourmet cook in your party. The general store is within walking distance for those small items you forgot at the grocery store! When the fun in the sun is over for the day, enjoy two large screen tvs in the living areas and two bedrooms with smaller tvs, all with cable. Or grab a rocking chair on the back porch and watch the sun go down over the marsh. Books and games are at your disposal. Several beach chairs, two umbrellas and three bikes are there for your enjoyment. You will love the decor and location of this charming beach home. Enjoy your stay at The WillSea at Holden's Beach and WillSea you again next year!!

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
                          We have always loved the beach! We love fishing, crabbing, clamming and sunbathing, as well as taking long walks on the beach. Our children have grown up around the ocean and we are so excited to be able to share this with them! Holden Beach is only a hour away from our home which makes it very easy and quick to get here. We have traveled to some extent but always remark that the beaches in other parts of the world still can't compare to the beaches of NC! Holden Beach is in such a great location. You can easily visit other crowded resort type areas or the many points of interest that surround Holden Beach but still not have to deal with the crowds on a daily basis. We are so excited to share this house with fellow beach lovers and hope you will enjoy your experience here. Please come back to see us!
