                  Holden Beach has been voted one of the best family beaches in the US. There is not much to do on the island except enjoy the beach and ocean. There are more complete amusement activities available 45 minutes away in Myrtle Beach or the seaport of Wilmington and Southport, NC. And the town of Shallotte 12 miles away has more restaurants, movie theaters, food stores (Walmart Superstore, Food Lion, Lowes Foods), shopping. Good Mexican food at San Felipe in front of the Home Depot.

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About: This home is the primary residence of Ken, a retired engineer and Holly, an artist. Her work can be found at beach-people.com. For fun we like to take long walks on the beach, fish, surf, ride bikes, sail, and travel. We have two grown daughters. We are honest, responsible people, respectful of others homes and property, and expect the same of others. We rent to families only.

                  Why Holden Beach:
                  Our cottage is one of the few with unobstructed views of both the marsh and the ocean. Holden Beach is a ten mile long barrier island in Brunswick County, NC. It has been voted one of America's best family beaches. It is one of the few south-facing beaches on the east coast. Warm water, good swimming, clean sand. Other than a fishing pier and a few restaurants there are few distractions from a quiet relaxing time at the beach. Other attractions such as museums, aquariums, fun parks, historic homes and ports, the battleship North Carolina are within 45 to 60 minute drive of the cottage. Food Lion grocery store and Walgreen pharmacy are 5 minutes drive just over the bridge. Bikes, jet skis, umbrellas, kayaks, beach chairs, sheets and linen, and baby stuff are available for rent from local vendors. Fresh local seafood is abundant.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Our house is one of the least expensive rental dwellings on Holden Beach but has all modern amenities including a new oceanfront deck.
