Property description

I have been coming to Holden Beach North Carolina since I was 5 years old. My parents rented a little cottage at the West End of the island for two weeks in the summer every year until I was about 13. The home they rented came on the market and they decided to purchase their first beach property. To this day, they still enjoy every moment at that beach home that has collected so many family memories over the years. In 2004, Chesapeake (this cottage) came on the market and it had always been one of my fathers favorite homes. A weathered wooden gray beach house with tons of character yet tons of space for family and friends. When he went inside and saw the knotty pine ceilings that had weathered over the years and the views from the great room, he knew it was a perfect match for a second beach home on the island we all love so much. I being the eldest daughter (and the one with kids!) have spent the most time in the cottage with my husband and two boys. I have also had many girls weekends in the cottage.

The house is built on stilts so the first livable floor is really the second floor! The underneath of the house is perfect for covered for parking your cars. There is also an enclosed outside shower.

The first livable floor has two bedrooms with private bathrooms Each bedroom has a twin and a double bed in them. There is also a laundry room on this floor. The kitchen/dining/den combo is on this floor as well. Full view of the ocean from this room!

The upstairs consists of two master bedrooms. The first with a private bathroom with a shower (no bathtub) and a King size bed. Access to the covered upstairs porch. The second master has a King size bed and access to the covered porch, but shares a bathroom with another bedroom.

There is another bedroom upstairs with a queen size bed and access to the covered porch.

There is a wonderful second den upstairs with a television/dvd/vcr player and a futon. This room overlooks the marsh on the front side of the house.

Feel free to contact me with any additional questions regarding bedding, sleeping arrangements etc....

Location

Cottage is located very close to the Holden Beach pier for those that enjoy fishing. It is a short drive or walk to the pier. In addition, Holden Beach is a short drive (45 minutes) to Myrtle Beach and various other areas for world class golf. Holden Beach is an hour drive to Wilmington North Carolina where you can see the Battleship North Carolina and other wonderful shopping experiences etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my two young boys and amazing husband. All four of us love our little place at Holden Beach just about more than anywhere else we have been. It is relaxing, safe, low key and beautiful. We have so many family memories there. My boys have learned how to truly play in a world where video games, movies and television have taken away so many of the simple pleasures of just being a kid. This is one place they can just be kids. My husband and I have been coming here even before we were married-17 years! So we have a lot of history at this beach. We love it.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
If you are looking for a 'true secret' beach experience, this is your place!!! Holden Beach does not allow high rises, loud billboards, mobile homes, and other things that make so many beaches overcrowded, loud, dirty, dangerous and downright miserable. Come to Chesapeake to renew, relax, enjoy your family, read, collect shells, and just be. One of the most special things about Chesapeake Cottage is it is one of the last cottages that is a oceanfront cottage and is also fully marsh-front as well. There are NO homes in front of Chesapeake. So even in the high season, there are very few people on your private beach and when you look out front you see the cranes and the tides moving in and out of the grasses. How good can it get???

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house has an immediate feeling of warmth and relaxation as you sit in the gray rocking chairs on the porch with your coffee in the morning and watch the waves as if you are on your own private island. Or watch the sunsets at the end of the day on the end of the deck with an ' end of the day drink of choice' while the breeze washes away any stresses from home that you might have brought with you on your trip. Head to Captain Pete's, the local Seafood market, and get some fresh seafood to cook in the well stocked kitchen. I love to cook and can promise you that anything you need to prepare a gourmet meal for 15 is there for you to use! Or head up to the second floor covered porch during a storm and watch it come over the ocean. Magnificent! Views from every room on both the front and back of the house. The front looks out over the pristine marsh. Another huge benefit is the proximity to the ocean from the house. Easy to take your chairs and snacks to beach. But, one can also go back to house easily if they need to go inside for a rest. Great if you have small children.
