Holden Beach house description

Holden Hands NC was designed and built by us in 2002 with warmth and friendliness and totally with families in mind. It is a NON-SMOKING home! It’s where we enjoyed living “the life” living full time at Holden Beach. This “perfect” property is on a Canal (back of home) with a dock and faces the beautiful Marsh without any other houses blocking your view. The house is just a five minutes walk to the beach. House comfortably sleeps 6 adults and 3 children/teens. There are 6 decks, 2 facing the Marsh, a screened-in Turret deck, 2 on the Canal side and on the top of the house, a look-out Crows Nest where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Inter-coastal and the Ocean coastline. Sunbathing could be on the dock, any of the decks or the stone-landscaped back yard. Watching the sunsets from the front deck swing is a family favorite. Enjoy some peaceful time swaying on one of the two hammocks, on the screened-in Turret deck off of the Master Bedroom or facing the rise and fall of the tides in the Canal. The reverse floor plan encourages family groups to relax and play. We're pleased to have expanded the hardwood flooring from the kitchen and dining room all the way through the living room and Turret room as well as the first floor entrance hall. We're sure you'll like how it looks! Enjoy playing pool on our custom made, regulation size pool table. Those visiting together can gather on the cushions in the Turret Room enjoying each others company and views from the surrounding windows. The dining room comfortably seats eight and includes a booster seat. There’s a breakfast nook with 3 more comfortable chairs and counter stool for smaller seating. A child safety gate is at the top of the stairs. The raised ceiling living room includes a sleeper sofa, TV and Blu Ray Player. Bring your favorite discs or rent from the local Redbox located at the end of the Causeway. We have internet for wireless connections. The kitchen is equipped with stove-top gas burners, wall oven, crock-pot, electric skillet, micro-wave, dishwasher, a large pantry, and amazing amount of granite counter space. Visitors can enjoy using our own ice cream maker to catching crabs with the crab trap on the dock and cooking-outside on the charcoal Bar-b-Que. Families are enjoying the 8' picnic table where you can eat, spread out your seashells or enjoy visiting while watching the tide rise and fall in the canal! Also, enjoy sitting on our new benches on the dock while visiting and watching the family fish or go out on your kayak!

During the fall and winter evenings, enjoy the 3 sided glass gas fire place between the living room and dining room. There’s a full bath on the top floor, another on the first floor and the third is the master bath which includes a Claw Foot Soaking Tub for relaxing bubble baths as well as a 5 foot glass enclosed shower. We encourage all to use the outside Enclosed Shower with hot & cold water after swimming in the ocean. You’ll find the changing area to be convenient. The washer/dryer is on the first floor with 3 bedrooms. The Master bedroom and Canal bedroom have queen size beds while the Marsh bedroom has twin sized bunk beds and a youth cot and Pack and Play. A queen sleeper sofa is on the top level. The house comfortably sleeps 6 adults and 3 children. Park under the house and bring in your groceries with ease. Leave your pets at home as pets are NOT ALLOWED! Housekeeping will be done to ready the house for your stay.

Holden Hands NC offers you a memorable vacation on the beach which National Geographic Smart Traveler magazine recently ranked among its top 10 'Best Family Beaches' category and AAA Beach Vacation Travel Journal ranked as one of their 'Top 30 Beaches' overall. It is only 45 minutes South to Myrtle Beach for shopping, golf and entertainment. Golf is abundant throughout Brunswick County where Holden Hands NC is located. Families can enjoy history and nature experiences in nearby Wilmington NC as well. You’ll want to come back to our home throughout the year!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Our family fell in love with Holden Beach after being invited by a graduate school friend in 1980. Walking on the beach, collecting shells, laying in the hammock, birding has always been a favorite activity, being at the beach with all our children and grandchildren is heavenly! It's the place for building memories!

                      Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
                      This has been our family home. 2011 was the first year we rented our home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Fishing early morning, beach fun during the day, evenings with friends and family, watching the birds from our Turret Room off of the Living Room. Watching the stars at night from the Crows Nest and all 4 decks is spectacular. We have always used the Turret Room as the play space for toys, keeping the Living Room for the adults. The Pool Table is for all to enjoy but children should be monitored. The Pool Table room is designed so the cue sticks do not hit the wall. The Claw Foot Tub is fabulous for relaxing baths with good lighting for reading.
