About Irvin Woods
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.
Irvin Woods purchased this House in 2008
Why Irvin Woods chose Holden Beach
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.
What makes this House unique
Pelican Watch is in very lightly developed area of east end of Holden Beach.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We truly had a wonderful time on our first family vacation in 8 years. The location was perfect. Close to the beach and the pool was perfect. Having a place with an elevator made it super easy for grandma who struggles with steps. The place was clean and had everything we needed. The owner was so nice and answered any questions we had. We hope to go back next year. Loved Pelican Watch
Had a lovely stay at Pelican Watch, enjoying the beach and relaxing with family! The house was great and the owner was quick to respond to any questions we had about the house or Holden Beach area.
Pelican Watch is fabulous! It is beautiful, clean, has a fantastic pool, a well-stocked kitchen, and is in a convenient peaceful location. The views from each deck are breathtaking. Do not forget about the back deck-the sunsets are amazing! We had such a great stay not only because of the beautiful beach and house but also because of Irv. He met us upon arrival and showed us around the house and how to take care of the pool-such a nice guy! He was ready and willing to assist with anything that came up during our stay and a very gracious host. Absolutely nothing came up or went wrong during our 10 day stay though! We will definitely vacation with Irv at Pelican Watch again.
Thanks, you were great renters, nice people who are welcome back anytime. The heated pool which is open March to Thanksgiving does make the spring and fall more enjoyable, while being especially affordable. Thanks again for your care of my home and nice comments.
Wonderful family vacation!
We had an absolutely wonderful time at Pelican Watch. The heated pool was perfect in March as well as the few short steps to the beach!! The house is gorgeous and you cannot beat the ocean views. This house had all that we needed for our family - kitchen was fully stocked and the amount of pool and beach toys kept my boys totally entertained. We love Holden Beach and look forward to more visits in the future. Thanks so much to Irv for being such a huge help!!
Thanks for your kind comments about Pelican Watch. I know you have vacationed at Holden Beach many times and I'm honored by your comments. Your family will be welcomed back!
Now that I'm retired with two Holden Beach homes, I take considerable time and pride in working to deliver a great rental experience.
Thanks again, Irv
Loved house, views, right on beach, private heated pool wonderful
We spent a nice week in early November at the home following the City of Oaks Marathon in Raleigh where son Nathan ran. Perfect post-race and family place for rest and recreation. Beach very near, a short walk, and wonderful. Heated private pool we all loved. 4 adults (2 seniors), and 3 very young kids/grandkids.Elevator very helpful from ground to top floor ! It was off-season for Holden Beach but we were all happy to 'veg,' and made a nice day trip by ferry to Ft. Fisher and the NC Aquarium there. Highly recommend ' Pelicans Watch ! '
Very nice and clean beach house! Very friendly and careing owner!
We had a great stay at this nice beach house!
This house is close to the beach and well maintained. It smells fresh and clean, so that you liked to lie in the beds (not quite natural).
Also the owner Irv was very friendly and taking much care of us as the hurricane Florance reached the area.
We would definitely come back!
Beautiful broad beach just across the dunes, high tide on Atlantic Ocean is about 200 feet off the 2 front decks and broad beach strand. Private pool in fenced enclosure. Small back deck overlooks Lockwood Folly Inlet and large undeveloped parcel. 100 golf courses w/ in 50 miles.
Great broad beach right out front or enjoy the pool tucked in front of house. Parents can watch the kids in pool from pool decks or porches overlooking pool and beach.
