About The Owner

We are a family of five living in Charlotte, NC. Will and I keep busy trying to raise our three young children.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Holden Beach

Will and I chose Holden Beach and the Great Escape because it is a quiet family oriented beach. We knew we wanted a place where we could let our kids ride their bikes, run and play on an uncrowded beach and a place we could build fond memories.

What makes this house unique

Located on the east side of the island, the Great Escape is a five minute walk to the beach, the inner coastal waterway and local restaurants. The outdoor shower allows you to get cleaned up after a day of playing at the beach or after a long walk to the pier. The inverted floor plan lets you enjoy the views while rocking on the front porch and relaxing with the gentle beach breeze. The kids can enjoy a variety of books, games, puzzles and toys.

Good spot / quick walk to beach

  • 3 of 5

Lots of living space. Some basic spruce up / checking in on replqcing amenities (chairs , beach gear etc) would probably be good for future renters. Plenty of kitchen supplies.

I guess a more specific list of whats included & expected upon departure qod be helpful. Had pretty decent weather... enjoyed the warm water & ferry to Bald Head Island!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home worked out really well to vacation with our friends and our teen daughters. The location was great, it's a quick walk to the beach, restaurants, the pavilion, etc. Beds were comfortable, and the home nicely furnished. We woukd recommend and would happily stay in this home the next time we come to this area!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from our Holden Beach vacation and we loved staying at this house. The homeowners provided everything we needed: a fully equipped kitchen, high chair, pack and play, beach cart, umbrella, and beach chairs. The home is beautifully decorated and was perfect for our family's stay. We cooked most meals but there were restaurants within a short walking distance. The grocery store is just over the bridge, which made it convenient to purchase groceries. On Sunday evening we enjoyed the free concert and beach music (also just a short walk away). The beach was not crowded and was perfect for families. I would highly recommend this vacation property and plan to stay here on return visits.

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with my family here. VERY comfortable and homey, and we REALLY appreciated the fact that the pantry and fridge had basic items like condiments, etc. The linen option was another lifesaver (use provided linens if you wash and fold before you leave). Plus, we walked to the concert under the bridge, Sandman's and Paradise Cafe. Would definitely rent again!

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say, this was BETTER than we could have ever expected! The pictures on the website don't do Misty's house justice!!!! Misty was so easy to work with and responded quickly! We stayed with 6 of us! 4 adults and two kiddos. It works out GREAT having bunk beds! It was only a 5 minute walk to the beach and there is a cart, sand toys, chairs, you name it, to use! I was so thankful there were kid toys as we came with a 3 and 5 year old in our group! They LOVED playing with all the toys in the livingroom! It was awesome! We would definitely stay here again when we come back to Holden Beach!!!!
