About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Late Winter /Spring can be nice at Holden Beach, sun rises and sets on the ocean! Private heated (optional) pool re-opens in March. There was very limited Hurricane Matthew damage at Holden Beach and a beach renourishment is underway and will be complete by early March. Repeat bookings for Summer 2017 have been strong, 5 of 9 peak weeks already rented were by repeat customers. Great availability for winter/spring/summer at both our Holden Beach home. Spring and Fall are great and very affordable with available private pool heated at 82 degrees. If schedule works for you, this is a real deal. Holden Beach is great this time of year. Private heated (optional) pool re-openns in March.

2017 Summer reservations are coming in very strong with 9 weeks booked (quickest ever by this time) including 5 repeat renters. . Pelican Watch had record numbers in 2014 and 2015 and even faster in 2016. Get started on summer 2017 by locking-in "your week" before it's gone. Year-round Oceanfront home with Private HEATED Pool open March through Thanksgiving. House is luxurious, nicely decorated private oceanfront home with elevator built in 2008, now with many multi-year repeat customers. Spring and Fall are great times to try out Pelican Watch at reduced prices. Enjoy the beach or curl up with book from our extensive library. Call owner for 'couples' and/or multi-week discounts. Solar blanket and southern exposure (now w/ heater optional /surcharge applies) will warm the private pool. Take a short walk over dunes to broad beach. Pelican Watch is named in honor of the brown pelicans who fly by on the updrafts from ocean winds off the dune-ridge along the beach.

House has 4 bedrooms, 3 facing oceanfront, 3.5 baths inside, & enclosed outside shower w/ hot/cold H2O. Glass-paneled back deck off small sitting area on main living area offers privacy/protection from ocean breezes and great views of Lockwood Folly Inlet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I grew up with a family beach house at Edisto Beach, SC. Love the Carolina coast. Holden Beach is not at all like Myrtle Beach. We built this house in 2008 and incorporated improvements on the design of our other very nice house, Hold-on-Beach, vrbo #114090. . We love the East-End of Holden Beach so much, we are now on our third house in the neighborhood. We designed and built Pelican Watch for long-term enjoyment and eventual retirement. Heated pool really extends pleasure to almost 9 months.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach, NC, USA:
Special design and open space, visually from glassed back deck to stunning ocean views from both living levels. Elevator serves top floor (main living level) from parking level. Inverted floor-plan. Private heated (optional) pool is open from March to Thanksgiving.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pelican Watch is in very lightly developed area of east end of Holden Beach.
