About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath, 2 living areas, interior/furniture just refurbished/updated

Eight year old beach house with interior updated in winter 2016 with new carpeting, paint and some new furniture to make for the most comfortable and relaxing stay. **Also see our home and additional pictures at ** Enjoy a top-condition 4-bedroom, second row beach cottage located such that you have closer views of and a shorter walk to the ocean than many properties considered oceanfront. With beach access only a few homes away and several open decks, you have the best of both worlds: a convenient walk to the beach and exquisite views of, not only the ocean, but the marsh and Intracoastal Waterway. **see below for information on renting as a package with a 5-bedroom next door (Vrbo #134997) Also, we rent for long weekends in May, September and October**

The inverted floor plan has a top floor with one master-bedroom suite with king bed, kitchen with granite and full features, and two living areas, one that offers wide open views and a smaller den area for a quieter spot to read, play a game or watch a movie. The lower level features another master suite with a king, a second bedroom with a king and a third bedroom with twin beds. Dual zone heat/air conditioning allows different setting on each floor. On the ground level you have an enclosed outside shower with dressing area and hot/cold water.

Holden Beach is a quaint, quiet, family beach located on the southern shores of North Carolina. The beach has been recognized as a top beach by USA Today and National Geographic Smart Travel Magazine and received National Healthy Beach status by NHBC, which rates beaches based on environmental qualities and services.

The beach is also located approximately 35 miles from both Wilmington, NC and Myrtle beach, SC, making trips for shopping and entertainment easy.

***Rent as a package. For virtually any non-prime season week, this home can be rented as a package with another very good condition home that has 5 bedrooms and an elevator and is located next door, for a total sleeping capacity of 18 in nine bedrooms (22 including pullouts). Have some family members or friends that might like to come along but want a little separation for some extra quiet and relaxation, rent both homes together! The 5-bedroom is also on VRBO (vrbo #134997. Please inquire for weekly rates for renting both homes together.***

Fun Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Holden Beach and we really enjoyed our stay in Hoos Haven. The layout was perfect for two moms and four daughters for our annual girls beach trip. The house was clean and nicely updated. The convenient location right across from the beach made it easy for us to walk back and forth for lunch, breaks, etc. The views of the marsh are lovely and the sunsets were spectacular. We really enjoyed sitting on the front porch drinking coffee in the morning, enjoying the sounds of the ocean and warm breezes. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. If we return to Holden Beach next year, we will definitely consider staying here again!

Awesome House for Families!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a long weekend in April for our spring break. The house and location were just great. Our family enjoyed all the living spaces, kitchen, and porches. We each had our own bedroom and baths. The house has been updated this year with new furniture, paint and carpet. It's just lovely and very comfortable. We were able to take advantage of long walks on the beach and through the community. The house is located just across the street from the beach. The views of the intracoastal water way and sunsets are breathtaking.

Great location but...

  • 2 of 5

"Like-new"- not so much. The furnishings especially in the living room are pitiful. We had several days of rain which more or less forced us inside; there was not a comfortable place to sit in the house. The house is really showing the signs of being a rental home; stained carpeting, painting needs updated, etc. Its also time to replace/update kitchen supplies. On the plus side; the kitchen and bathrooms all appear to have been recently updated.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Although in the five years since we began renting this is the first and only negative review we have had, we agree that during your stay there were valid reasons for your dissatisfaction, and upon learning of your comments and the associated problems we immediately took corrective action. The home is a popular rental and there is no question that some of the interior painting has taken a beating. Prior to this season we had the exterior repainted and we now have interior painting and new carpeting scheduled for this fall. Had we been made aware that the kitchen was missing some items we would have had our management company bring you anything you needed during your stay. We make sure the kitchen is well equipped for parties of 8 each spring before the summer rental season starts. But items do get broken, transported to friends down the beach, taken home by mistake, etc. We are happy to replace anything during a renter's stay. Finally, regarding the furniture, the sofa in the larger living area was damaged and unfortunately not reported to us or our local management company and we know it had to have been very uncomfortable. Had it been reported during your stay we would have made every effort to repair it or have our management company bring a replacement. They have extra furniture on hand for emergencies. Certainly, our goal is for you to not have to pick up the phone and report troubles. But we will resolve any problem ASAP if it's reported.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We came to stay for Thanksgiving and thoroughly enjoyed the house. We have 3 small children and they took over the extra living area as a playroom so that we didn't have toys all over the house! It was very convenient to walk to the beach and we used a cart on wheels that we found downstairs to get our stuff there and back. The porches are great and kid-friendly. There was plenty of room for our family of five plus my mother and grandmother to spread out. Great house!

Our family enjoyed staying here over a period of two weeks. We think this property and the duplex home (Wright Relaxin') are the best properties we have found at Holden Beach. The views are spectacular and the houses are the size we need for our extended family. Both are child friendly homes that we need for our visiting grandchildren and their families!

First but not last trip to Holden Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week at Holden Beach. It was our first experience there and we would absolutely come again. The house was just the right size for our family. We enjoyed sitting on any one of the four balconies. The views were fabulous. The house is in a perfect location to walk to the beach. We enjoyed riding our bikes all over the island to explore. It is an easy drive into Wilmington and Myrtle Beach. Very nice to meet the owner of the property.

We look forward to visiting again.
