Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lulu Rose is an original Holden Beach cottage ... lovingly restored ... and brought into the 21st century!

You are RIGHT ON THE BEACH! Walk from your private deck, down your private walkway onto the sand!

The little cottage is perfect for a couple on a romantic getaway or for a small family. Lulu Rose can also give you the luxury of privacy and serenity during larger family gatherings or group events that take place on Holden Beach. (She has been the Honeymoon Suite and the Aunties' Getaway many times!) Lulu Rose is a one of a kind beach cottage made to make you feel pampered while you're having fun at the beach. (My husband and I named the little cottage after our mothers ... who else really knew how to pamper you?)

When you arrive, your beds will be made with 500 thread count 100% cotton bed linens. Bath towels, including beach and spa towels (all 100% cotton) are there for you with a package of Bath and Body Works amenities. There will be bottled water chilled in the refrigerator for you. (And, the essential paper products to allow you to take a needed break after your travels!)

Relax. Maybe soak in the refinished 1934 Kohler claw-foot tub ... there's bath salts in your amenities package. (If showering is your choice, there is a large custom shower in the other bathroom.)

Maybe a walk on the beach or a swim. Maybe you'll find some perfect seashells or see a sea turtle nest ... or even a sea turtle! Maybe a relaxing soak in the hot tub overlooking the beach followed by an outdoor shower. (It's a private outdoor shower with shampoo and shower gel and a lighted dressing area with electrical outlets.)

Maybe save the hot tubing for later ... under the stars with the sound of the waves on the beach.

Maybe, you can just sit on the deck with a cool drink in your hand and watch the pelicans fly by and the dolphins swim in the waves.

Or maybe, before any relaxing you have a few things to clear up at work. Take advantage of the wireless high speed internet (WIFI) with your laptop from a rocking chair.

For those too tired to relax, all televisions at Lulu Rose are ATMC Premium cable/phone/wireless high speed internet (WIFI) Bundle. There is a 55" smart (Pandora for beach music, Crackle for your favorite shows, or use your own Netflix account) HDTV with a Blue Ray player in the great room. Each bedroom has ATMC cable with built-in DVD/VHS. There is an iPod player/alarm clock.

When you start feeling hungry, there are restaurants on the island, right across the bridge on the waterway, on the causeway, on the way into town (Shallotte), in Shallotte, on the way to Myrtle Beach (south), which includes Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach or on the way to Wilmington (north), which includes Southport and Oak Island. Lots to choose from ... from casual to very casual!

There is an alternative, you could cook!

The kitchen in Lulu Rose is well equipped and well lighted ... a tiny gourmet kitchen really. It makes cooking fun.

There are new stainless steel appliances, microwave and garbage disposal and lots of granite counter space, including a raised bar with chairs. There is an icemaker and filtered water dispenser in the refrigerator door. There is a separate lighted wine refrigerator. There are small appliances, including a coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, and toaster. There's even a bar-b-que area outside ... lighted and with running water and bar-b-que utensils.

There are two farmers markets in the area to purchase the freshest produce, jams and condiments. There is an abundance of fresh seafood available. You can purchase oysters and shrimp and flounder right off the boats. There is a Food Lion grocery at the end of the causeway.

If you want to venture out for other than beach activities, drive to historic Southport and take a ferry to Fort Fisher and visit the aquarium. Visit historic Wilmington, the USS North Carolina and The Ivy Cottage in Wilmington, the largest consignment store on the east coast. Have lunch at one of the restaurants overlooking the Cape Fear River. Or, have lunch or an early dinner at Indochine ... you'll think you've stepped into another world!

Or, go south to Myrtle Beach for miniature golf, to Barefoot Landing or Tangor Outlet Mall.

(Costco, both with gas, in Wilmington and Myrtle Beach.)

Or, get up early and take a day to see Charleston. See Hampton Plantation on the way. Shop for Gullah sea grass baskets from the roadside artisans in Mt. Pleasant. Take a city tour. Have a great low country meal. Visit the Charleston Visitor Center on Meeting Street for lots of fun and interesting things to do and see.

Or, stay closer to home. Mary's Gone Wild folk art. Silver Coast Winery. Indigo Farms. Lockwood Folly Golf. All the little shops on the causeway. The Cinemas.

Or, stay really close to home and swim, fish, kayak, boogie board, windsurf, bike, jet ski, parasail, or wreck dive. (There are many good massage therapists near the island!)

Whatever you choose to do, you'll have a great time, and at the end of the day, there is nothing like returning to the beach and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves.

Welcome to Holden Beach.

Welcome to Lulu Rose.

P.S. Sam and I love to cook. Cooking is how we unwind at the end of the day. Holden Beach offers all sorts of local, fresh produce, seafood, poultry, and game, and we have equipped Lulu Rose with everything we could think of to cook delicious meals and to have some fun and share good company at the same time.

Lately, I have been getting questions about the local restaurants, reminding me that cooking every day and evening is not everyone’s idea of fun ... or of a vacation. So, I asked a few friends for their favorite restaurants and put together a list, including addresses, distances from Lulu Rose, phone numbers (you can call from the house phone now that we have the ATMC extended calling), and websites.

At least one of us or a friend, had a good dining experience at these restaurants, but we are all so different with what we look for when we eat out, so please look at the websites and some online reviews when you are choosing where to go.

Very disappointed in the walkway to the beach it was falling apart marked condemned

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in what we call "our beach house" three times now just very disappointed in the walkway and in very thankful we didn't get hurt several splinters trying to hold on to the rocking wood walkway the hot tub was disgusting and they said they were there to clean it which could not have been true they did immediately take care of it when I called the office i would really like to return if the walkway becomes safe it wasnt cheap to stay under those circumstances I felt cheated as to when Hobbs was in charge it was much nicer I hope that you take pride in this home as we did while visiting fir the 3rd time

Lulu Rose is a lovely house with everything needed for a refreshing stay on the ocean. Attention is paid to details by the rental agency and the home owners. We had a beautiful, relaxing week in the home and explored the surrounding areas. Nice people in NC🙂?.

My husband and I totally loved this place. If we come back to Holden Beach, this is the only place we want to stay. Steve was very easy to work with. Answered a lot of questions for me. Transactions were smooth. Check-in Smooth. No complaints. I wish it weren't a 10 hour drive or we would come here annually. The view is amazing and sitting out in the hot tub under the stars - SPECTACULAR!!

A wonderful memory!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely charming! We had a wonderful time. The kitchen was totally equipped with everything needed to cook inside or grill outside. The outside grilling area is great! The bed linens were so very soft and comfortable. The claw foot tub is beautiful. The view from the deck is gorgeous. The hot tub is perfect for the late evenings listening to sounds of the ocean waves and we were lucky enough to have the full moon with the glow over the ocean. What a great stay it was. We hope to return for another wonderful trip someday.

We had a great time

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. The cottage has everything you need. The only thing I would recommend was to clean better. Over all it was pretty clean but one bathroom had dirt and hair all over the floor. I don't know if they forgot to clean it or what. The other could have been cleaner but wasn't bad.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time! We brought another couple along to enjoy a long relaxing weekend. The beach here is nice and flat - it's a great place for running or walking (we did both) and the house is so cute. The house is very clean and nicely decorated! The kitchen has top of the line appliances (it works) and there's a barbecue area set up downstairs behind the sand berm that the guys loved. Would highly recommend this place for a couple or two couples. It's money well spent!
