Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Owners are Dale and Mary Jo Werle. We are from Cincinnati Ohio area; we both grew up in Cincinnati and have 5 children. We have vacationed on the Carolina Coast most of our lives and fell in love with this location. We are very excited to have a beach house located at our family's favorite vacation spot.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
We have been vacationing in Holden beach for 28 years now. We are excited to finally have a vacation home of our own here. Our five children have grown to love the Holden Beach area as we do. Our intent is to create a comfortable vacation home where you can create memories with your family as we have been blessed to do with ours.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the Beach here - non-commercialized, family oriented, not crowded, simply beautiful. Our home was designed to allow maximum space for families to spend time together: large kitchen, two family rooms and two large decks overlooking nothing but sand and ocean. Perfect place to create wonderful memories and escape the commotion of the daily grind.
