Holden Beach house description

This comfortable home has three (3) very large bedrooms with queen beds and one (1) bedroom on the ground level with twin beds -perfectly located for extra privacy, loud teens or loud snorers! It also has a cute bedroom in a nook with custom bunks for the younger kids and there is a roll-a-way-single in the master BR. There is a deck outside of each upstairs bedroom and a large rear deck off of the OPEN STYLE indoor living area. There are two full baths and a private, refreshing outside shower.

We have a boat dock on a deep water canal that has access to the Intracoastal waterway. We are a close walk to the beach (284 yards) and the public pier (add 50 feet). Our place is designed to give you the whole Holden Beach experience.

As you approach Holden Beach Bridge, you will notice a shopping center with Food Lion grocery, Walgreens, Subway, Dominos pizza and other convenient stores. A little furthur, you will see Banks, Resturants, Arcades, Coffee Shops, Boat Rentals, Beach-wear stores, Hardware Stores and many other stores catering to you the vacationer. Anything else you need is in Shallotte...just 10 miles away.

At the base of the bridge (a block to the left), you can find restaurants/bars and beach equipment rental stores. As you drive toward Something Fun, you will notice to your left, (just as you turn on to Burlington Street), the Holden Beach Pier, public beach access, and the pier restaurant. They are an easy walk... about 200 yards from Something Fun. Just past the pier is a conveniece store, ice cream shop and boutique.

Now that you know where everything is and you have your stuff put away: RELAX! You are on the Island! No crowds, flashing lights or lots of traffic. Grab your preferred beverage, sit out on the rear deck and be amazed at the tides changing 5 +/- feet every 6 -/+ hours. Or maybe you want to enjoy your daily jog on the beach or the sidewalk or both.

We have items for our customers to have SOMETHING FUN to do: bikes, surfboard, kites, fishing poles, games, etc. (It is an honor program; if you break it - fix it; if you want to leave something for other guest thats, fine. Just don't take anything you didn't bring, please.)

If you are an adventurer, there are many places to visit and do fun things. There are plenty of golf courses in Brunswick County and Myrtle Beach , historical sites, including Old Brunswich, Southport, Wilmington, Fort Fisher (byr road or ferry) and even Charleston S.C. (120 miles); all of which have great shopping.

Our rentals run from Saturday to Saturday during June, July and August. If you want shorter periods during this time, it must start on or end on a Saturday. Our pricing sructure encourages the full week rental during this period.

We employ a personal property caretaker for your complete piece of mind vacation experience. Call Ken, Holden Beach HomeWatch, at (910) 842-6796 for any emergencies, requests, or for any general information.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: We have owned a beach house on Holden Beach since 1994.

          Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
          Our first was on the Ocean. We wanted to be able to have access to the beach and the Intracostal Waterway. We use our boat to go to the local On-the-water-restaurants on Holden Beach, Ocean Isle, Long Beach, and Southport. We don't have any less access to the beach.
