Located on the marsh, just a short walk to the ocean, 'Just Coastin'' is a unique property -- really a home and a half! There is a main house with a separate, but attached 'guest house' or annex. If you have some people with you who tend to run on either an earlier or later schedule than everyone else, this is the place for you! The guest house has a downstairs living area with television and DVD player and full bath. There is an upstairs loft with a queen bed and sitting area. The view from this bed is amazing!
The main house has four bedrooms -- two master bedrooms with queen beds and huge bathrooms with large showers. The two additional bedrooms have twin beds. One twin room has the beds built in, resembling those aboard a ship! The twin rooms share a large bath with a tub/shower.
Downstairs there is a separate television room with a large sectional couch. There is a pull out full-size bed for additional sleeping -- but, there are no linens provided for this bed. There are pocket doors to this room which helps keep the television/movie sounds contained. There is another large living area with matching leather sofas flanking a gas fireplace. Behind the sofas, there is an additional seating area with chairs for reading. The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an electric cooktop. The cupboards are well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans and additional cookware, baking dishes etc. There are two half baths downstairs. Off the main living area, there is a lovely screened porch.
The entire back side of the home has a large deck which has five rocking chairs along with an additional table for meals outside. This is where your crowd will congregate. Those seeking shade will find it here, but can still feel part of whatever is going on poolside while rocking away. Upstairs, the two master bedrooms have balconies which overlook the pool area and marsh and have adirondack chairs.
The backyard pool is the highlight of the house. The largest private pool on the island, it is forty feet long and eight feet deep at the deep end. You and your guests can enjoy playing pool games, getting in a real swim or just floating! Six lounge chairs and tables surround the pool. If it gets too hot, there is a shade structure and additional shade available under the deck.
There is an outside shower with hot and cold water underneath the house. Additionally, there is a large guest closet which can hold your chairs, umbrellas, bicycles and other toys. Inside the closet you will also find the charcoal grille available for your use. There are places here for everyone and everything you can think of!
Just Coastin' is located in Pointe West, a private subdivision on the western end of the island. Pointe West amenities include a private walkway to the beach. The beach is wide and sandy and never gets crowded! There is also a neighborhood dock with a fishing platform for you to enjoy.
If you have any questions about our property, please feel free to call me. I can be reached at 919-881-0202 or 919-602-3250. When you are staying here at the beach, our property manager, who lives on the island, can help you with anything you need. His name is Ken Wood and he is with Holden Beach HomeWatch. Ken can be reached at 910-842-6796 any time. He will provide weekly renters with linens for the beds in the bedrooms and can provide linens for the sleep sofa and towels by request.

About: We are the parents of four young adult children and all of us love going to Holden Beach to rest, relax and play.
Why Holden Beach: Holden Beach has been the location of our family reunion for over 20 years. In 2010 we finally decided to find a permanent place to call home when we are able to visit.
Holden Beach is a quiet, unspoiled place with wide sandy shores and uncrowded beaches. Here you and your family can set up a tent or umbrella, place your chairs and towels, coolers and picnic items and spend hour after hour chatting, reading, sleeping, shelling, swimming or just enjoying nature. There are so few people sharing the beach at our private access point, you will be able to spend your vacation time with the people you love, not strangers who also happen to have chosen the same week to vacation.
If you have golfers in your midst, there are many courses available to play. My husband and sons love to get up very early and hit the links before it gets too hot and also allow their day to include some beach or pool time in the afternoon.
Myrtle Beach and Wilmington are each about 40 minutes away. Each provides lots of shopping opportunities and access to an enormous number of additional golf courses. There is abundant nightlife there also -- something that is not readily available at Holden.
The Unique Benefits at this House: As much as we love whiling away the hours listening to the waves, there are some days when the beach is not as hospitable as one would like. When the wind off the water kicks the sand onto you and your towels or when the air is just a bit too chilly or the flies are out, these are the days when you really understand the advantage of the home off the oceanfront and by the marsh. This home has the prettiest pool and pool area around. There are no homes that overlook the back of the property, so you and your guests can enjoy the pool and marsh view in complete and total privacy. Away from the wind, you can stay warm and protected. If it's too hot, there is shade under the deck and you can always just jump in the water! This home also has a beautiful screened porch with exceptionally comfortable furniture. You may start to read your book there and end up taking a nap! All of this area overlooks the marsh where there is a constant nature show taking place. Keep your eyes out for the island's deer population.
If fishing is your thing, you can go out to the neighborhood dock and fish (be sure you have the appropriate license!) You can put your kayak or canoe in the water and paddle about also. There really is always something to do!
