Come join us for a week in our version of paradise. Here’s why:

* One of the best rated, least crowded and most beautiful family beaches found anywhere.

* Very private with no houses behind...we feel it's much better than 2nd row because of this

* Safe and located on a very quiet street yet very close proximity to the beach. Only approx. 200 yards to private neighborhood beach access so our section of beach is uncrowded

*Wonderful water views of both Atlantic (front) and Intracoastal Waterway (back).

*4 decks + patio + yard with 3 palm trees, a trellis with jasmine and a large prickly pear cactus

* Tasteful, spacious and renovated accommodations with much more space than most single family homes of similar price

*Modern TV's and Audio/Video streaming entertainment choices through ROKU TV & networked AV receiver

* Pristine & uncrowded wide white-sand beach

* Plenty of great dining choices, shopping and children’s amusements, all within a 2 mile radius.

* Some of the best fishing and boating on the East Coast

* Approximately 40 world class golf courses within a 30 minute radius.

Holden Beach is still a well-kept secret, perhaps not for long though. National Geographic Smart Traveler magazine recently ranked Holden Beach among it's top 10 'Best Family Beaches' category. H.B. offers a great alternative to the crowds and commercialism of nearby N. Myrtle Beach, which is only approximately 35 miles away or Wilmington beaches which are typically much more crowded.

Owner is a licensed real estate broker in NC, however this is our personal property and 2nd home.

About Rob Hall

Rob & Cheri Hall. We live in Chapel Hill, NC. We've been married 16 years and have 2 great kids. Olivia is 15 and Justin is 13 as of Summer '18. Hence 'JustLiv'...

We bought the property in 2002 and each year try to improve and modernize it.

Rob Hall purchased this condo in 2002

Why Rob Hall chose Holden Beach

The property is unique and a great value at the price we charge for what you get compared with other properties close by. This is why many guests return (some multiple times per year). Uncrowded pristine wide white sand beach. No high rises, only cottages on the island due to 30 ft. height restrictions. Low-key, relaxed family atmosphere that is still relatively undiscovered. Island runs East to West which is somewhat unique for the East Coast...makes for some interesting Atlantic sunsets (over the water in the Winter)

What makes this condo unique

We have privacy with nobody behind us, yet are only about a 1 minute walk from the beach. We feel it is much better than 2nd row because of not being surrounded by houses and not sitting on a busy main thoroughfare. Brunswick Ave is ideal for biking, blading or walking/running because it is quiet and safe, yet just a block from the beach and parallel to the beach road (Ocean Blvd). From the front we have a ocean view and from the back we have a view of the Intracoastal waterway. Our landscaping in the backyard includes 3 large palm trees giving a nice private tropical feel. We have multiple decks on both sides and a great patio area down below ideal for grilling with a nice breeze at street level (hang the hammock down there for a great nap!). There is a wonderful outdoor hot/cold shower that is very refreshing after a day at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a relaxing week in Holden Beach. The house was just a described. My family had never rented a house or condo for a vacation. We did not know what to expect. After a quick run to the store for food, we were soon sitting on the deck sipping some wine. We had a great time on the beach, riding bikes, and kayaking on the intercoastal. We visited some of the other beach communities nearby.

If you want a quiet more less crowded beach and community, this rental unit and Holden Beach is the place to go.

Just WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

First trip to Holden Beach! We had an excellent family vacation. Very close to the beach and within walking distance of everything. Spent every morning sitting on top deck, drinking coffee and watching the ocean. Everything we needed was there. House was extremely clean and comfortable. Shower area outside was so convenient and private. Then we were able to dry off in the sun on the back deck. Restaurants in Holden were excellent and very reasonable. Will definitely go back!

Cozy house, large enough for 4 adults and 2 kids

  • 4 of 5

Overall, good. House has an Xbox and roku tv, for relax time at night (nice for kids when they get board). Washer and especially drier are loud, sucks because it Is below the one adult bedroom and located right next to living room. Evrything else was great, owners response to direct emails was great. The owners have made definite attempts to improve the home. Downstairs laminate appears to be tounge and groove and is in excellent condition (either newer or unabused).Entainment systems are all updated (nothing old). Living room leather couch, very comfy. Many bathroom updates throughout the home, including a nicely installed ceramic shower.We saved money by visiting the local grocers and making our own meals, there was ample room for B/L/Dinner in the home with 6 people. The house is a good (great is reserved for ocean view, my bias) vacation spot (especially considering it has 4 decks and is quite close to beach access.).Alot cleaner than our house last year, at oak island. The owners seem like very nice folk, and for the 2 or 3 years we've been visiting holden beach and oak island this has been the cleanest kept (and for the most part) updated home we've stayed at. Hope my review helps.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed it. We've had it 15 years and do try to update and improve some more for each season. The downstair flooring is LVT (vinyl tile). Scratch and water proof. Eventually we hope to extend it up into the bedrooms upstairs. Sounds like the dryer needs a new belt at least (glad it's still working at least!), will add that to the improvement list. May also just replace the washer/dryer pair. It's a never ending list when you own a place at the beach, but well worth it. Thanks for the feedback, hope to have you back!

We were looking for a relaxing and uncrowded beach and found that at Holden.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and responded to questions timely. Thank you!! The bathrooms were updated( a plus) and the place had basically all we needed. The reason we didn't give it 4/5 was the mattresses were not very comfortable but that wasn't that big of a deal since we aren't living there☺️. The location is awesome- close to beach and the bridge. Overall our stay was great!!

Very peaceful! Good location

  • 4 of 5

The condo is not right on the beach but the views from the upper balconies are great of the ocean. Very short walk to the beach. We like it because it backs up to the inter coastal waterway and there are no houses behind you so very private and enjoyable. Lots of good bird watching. The condo was clean and comfortable. Would stay here again.

Great location, nice views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house...less than 1 block from beach with easy access. Quiet with nature area in back (and walking trail around it). Glad to not be on busy and noisy Ocean Blvd. Great size for our family of 7...lots of porches with nice furniture. Remodeled bathrooms. Comfy beds and living room... we'll be back! Eat at provision company and be sure to do a day trip to Seaport. Rob is very responsive to emails when inquiring.

Nearest Airport
30 Miles
Wilmington or Myrtle Beach

Beach activities are the main attraction. 9 miles of the most unspoiled, non-commercialized wide beaches in the U.S. Low-key, family oriented island community that is very safe, especially for those with small children. Plenty of excellent dining choices and shopping within a 2 mile radius, many more within a 30 min. drive to either N. Myrtle Beach or Wilmington. Plenty of activities for the kids including water slide, bumper boats, go carts and miniature golf within 2 miles (on mainland across bridge). Over 40 of the best golf courses in the greater Myrtle Beach area are between a 5 to 30 minute drive. Our street is quiet and safe (parallel to main Ocean Blvd), perfect for biking, running or blading.

Other Activities: water slides, bumper boats, miniature golf, fishing
