About Anne (Jan) White

I grew up in Raleigh, NC, going to Holden Beach every summer with my family, friends, and cousins. I now live in the Washington, D.C. area. I have two daughters, both now grown, who also grew up going to Holden Beach every year. They grew up in the big city but return every New Years with their friends and cousins from D.C., NYC, Chicago and N.C.

Anne (Jan) White purchased this house in 1996

Why Anne (Jan) White chose Southern Coast

I spent every summer from age 12 at my family's beach home at Holden Beach. I have wonderful memories of those summers being joined at the beach by my aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends from North and South Carolina. In 1996 I bought a newly built home of my own on the West End of the beach, where the privacy reminds me of my early days at Holden Beach.

What makes this house unique

When I walk onto the beach from my home I can look both ways and see a beautiful unpopulated vista of white sand that stretches to the end of the beach to the West and several miles to the East. The water is warm for swimming, jumping waves, or body surfing. I can walk to the end of the beach from my home and find shells that have washed up. Because the West End of the beach has only two rows and the lots are large, it is quiet and I can relax and read on the beach by myself if I want or sit on the landing atop the dunes in front of my home. I can see the sunset from the landing. I also have a private porch off the Master bedroom that overlooks the sound and inland waterway on the other side of the house. I have water views from both sides of the house. If I want entertainment, especially for guests, there are lots of good golf courses and Myrtle Beach for the teenagers.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Whitecaps West. There was plenty of room for six adults and three children. Easy access to the beach and the duplex came with everything you need for a week's stay. If you don't like a crowded beach this is the place to go. Kids had a great time and lots of sea shells to collect. Outdoor shower and hose were great for washing off the sand. Love the view from the sea side deck. Would do this again with a large group. Owner Jan White was great to work with and Coastal Vacations Resorts were very responsive when we had a need.

Living As It Should Be

  • 5 of 5

It was our first family reunion vacation which couldn't have been better staying at Whitecaps West.

The home included all amenities anyone needs. The kitchen was stocked with toaster, microwave,

blender, coffee maker, etc. Storage shed included various beach chairs, etc.

If the family desires to return to Holden Beach in the future, Whitecaps West would be our choice.

What a glorious place to gather with friends or relatives!! Located on the beach, this bright, sunny, open home has room for a crowd---or a few. The downstairs living area features sofas facing wall-to-wall windows overlooking the ocean, a well-equipped kitchen with generous eating spaces, and even a little library area. I visited with several friends, and many times we gathered around the kitchen island for gab-fests. All bedrooms have comfortable beds, and are spacious and nicely decorated. This home is well-maintained, fresh, and feels new.

The shell-strewn beach is wide and private--ideal for long walks, a great place to "get away from it all." Yet the little town of Holden Beach is only minutes away for those who want to explore antique shops or boutiques, run to the grocery store or dine at some neat little restaurants.

I couldn't recommend it more highly!

Happy Beach Lover

  • 5 of 5

The sound of the ocean lulled me to sleep at night. The beach is beautiful and you can see for miles in each direction. Lovely vegetation and birds along the beach. Wonderful porch to read and enjoy the ocean view. House was spotless and very attractive furnishings. I can't think of anything that wasn't there for comfort and conveniences. Can't wait to return.

Private Getaway and Friends' Reunion All at One Time!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfectly awesome place to get together with a group of friends from near and far who are all on their own sleep schedules! The spacious, open, bright social areas of this fun beach house invite the whole group to gather for meals and visiting, and yet those who aren't night owls can retreat into the quiet and solitude of their own rooms even when the night owls are hooting!

Spotless, no disappointments

  • 5 of 5

The house is fresh, sunny, pretty, with large rooms. High-ceiling living room open to dining and kitchen. The bedrooms are all equally nice--big, bright, appealing decor, good closets. Three bedrooms have ensuite baths; two share. Very clean, it feels new. Everything is comfortable. The view of the ocean is beautiful.
