4 Bedrooms (3 oceanfront), 3.5 baths+H/C outside shower, (sleeps 8)

Enjoy beach and Special discounted rates for some partial weeks late April/May. or reserve other spring, summer or fall vacation at Hold-on-Beach,.
Fortunately for us at Holden Beach, we only got grazed by Hurricane Matthew. A major beach renourishment project was just completed giving us a beautiful broad beach. Hold-on-Beach and Pelican Watch (VRBO 185186) had no damage and are both open for business

Holden Beach now has a NEW FREE EV charging station. Drive your electric car on your next beach vacation. Winter and Spring rates are great. Spring weather is usually good. Want to swim before ocean warms up??, Try Pelican Watch (our other house) with private heated pool (re-opened in March and heated) at 82 degrees (vrbo 185186). Pelican Watch already has 10 reserved Summer 2017 weeks, with 5 from repeat renters. Enjoy the beautiful white sands of the lightly-developed east end of Holden Beach. Both houses have inverted floor plan has top floor with one master bedroom suite, kitchen with Corian and full features, and living area all overlooking large (28 foot wide) porch and beach/ocean. Three of the 4 bedrooms are oceanfront with great ocean views and breezes. Shining hardwood floors add extra quality. Dual zone heat/air conditioning allows different settings on each floor. Main TV is a new 47 inch HDTV w/digital cable. Wi-Fi. Enclosed outside shower with dressing area and hot/cold water. Outside entry 28 foot wide oceanfront porch via Andersen French doors to two of the oceanfront bedrooms. Off-season is great on the North Carolina Coast. Elevator serves top floor.

Fall, Winter and Spring activities. Walk the beach, curl up with a good book by the fireplace or a movie on the main 47 inch LCD HDTV. There are numerous spring festivals at area beaches and around Wilmington. Book-it now! Hold-On-Beach! is on the lightly developed 'East End' with broad beach for walking, swimming, or sunbathing. You won't need to get up early to 'stake-out' a beach or fishing spot in this area. Holden Beach is a top-ranked beach by USA Today, National Geographic Smart Travel Magazine, and has received National Healthy Beach status by NHBC which rates beaches based on environmental qualities and services.
