Holden Beach house description

La Dolce Vita is a beautiful oceanfront beach house located on the amazing family oriented Holden Beach. This home was just completed in March of 2013. Holden Beach was voted top 10 family beaches and is a family friendly, non-commercialized, perfect spot for anyone who wants a break and loves the beach. The entire island is rental homes. This allows for families to relax and enjoy the spectacular beach without crowds of people. Holden Beach has several fun restaurants but no fast food or commercial shopping at all. The island is 7 miles long. A short bridge links the island to the mainland where more restaurants, shopping, and nightlife can be found if you like. We are conveniently located approx. 1/2 mile east of the bridge.

La Dolce Vita is a 2000 sq ft House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10) brand new, luxury oceanfront home with spacious rooms and large windows with views of ocean. Large expanse of uncrowded beach in front of house. Private walkway from house to beach. Two large decks overlooking nothing but ocean!

Beautiful decor with lots of extras: Two family rooms, large well equipped kitchen, great views of ocean from inside of home, two large ocean front decks with rockers, laundry room, dining table combined with a counter bar that will seat up to 12, master bedroom with stunning view of ocean, two more bedrooms each with one queen bed, one more bedroom with four twin XL bunk beds, and large expanse of uncrowded beach, outdoor table and chairs, outdoor enclosed shower, wireless high speed internet connection, 4 TVs, DVD, well equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, quiet and private.

                  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.
