Holden Beach is a family friendly, non-commercialized, PERFECT spot for anyone who wants a break from the hectic 'real world' and loves the beach. The entire island is rental homes with no hotels to be seen. This allows for families to relax and enjoy the spectacular beach without crowds of people, spring break college crowds, or beach venders to bother you. Holden Beach has several fun restaurants but no fast food or commercial shopping at all. The island is 7 miles long and has bike trails running the entire distance! A short bridge links the island to the mainland where more restaurants, shopping, and nightlife can be found if you like. We are conveniently located approx. 1 mile from the bridge.
Our home looks out to an incredible beach separated only by a sandbar and a one-lane dirt road. The access steps to get over the sandbar are in front of our home! Tides are just perfect and strong enough to ride boogie boards and play in the waves but are easy enough for children to enjoy without fear. We have two decks and the views are amazing. You can enjoy the sunrise to the left... and the sunset to the right. In front of you is nothing but ocean!
We know that pets are very important to us all and we allow a maximum of two dogs per renter. Cats are not allowed due to allergies. An additional non-refundable fee of $125 is required for renters bringing dogs. An easy-access hose and a gated shady deck is a perfect spot for pets to clean up and dry off before coming inside. We appreciate your help in treating the house as your own so we can continue to offer the pets a vacation as well!
Upstairs you will find a master bedroom with a King bed and a large balcony looking out to the ocean, another bedroom with two twin beds, and a full bathroom. Downstairs is another master with a queen bed and a walk-in closet, a bedroom with two twin beds, and a full bathroom. All bedrooms have their own TVs. The kitchen and family room area have an additional TV and is a nice open space for families to gather. The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you will need... just bring the food! Underneath the house is a two-car concrete parking area that has room to bring a charcoal grill and enjoy a family cookout! There is also a private, warm-water shower on this level to wash off the sand at the end of the day.
SHEETS and TOWELS ARE included in the rental fee! Please bring your own beach towels.
We are located 30 min. south of Wilmington where you can tour the amazing USS North Carolina battleship and find many restaurants and shopping areas. To the south is the exciting area of Myrtle Beach where there is so much to do we cannot list it all! If you prefer staying 'close to home', right over the bridge is a three-slide water park, two miniature golf courses, go-carts, fun family-owned restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. When our family visits, we rarely go farther than 4 miles away!

About Mark and Christy Baugh
The owners of the home are three families who live in Indiana! We love the beach and all Holden has to offer! Our only regret? The beach is 13 hours away! Wish we could be there MORE!
Mark and Christy Baugh purchased this House in 2006
Why Mark and Christy Baugh chose Holden Beach
Amazing location... just one mile from the restaurants and 1/2 mile from the end of the island. Have you been to the dunes area of Holden Beach? The beach goes out FOREVER down there at low tide! Little tide pools often form... it is truly paradise on earth!

Wonderful time at Wonderful house on Holden Beach
My family just returned from Holden Beach. This house was great. This is our third time at Holden Beach but the first time we were oceanfront which made for a great time to just sit on the porch and watch the waves even on a day when it was raining. The beach was never crowded even on the nicest weekend days. It was also the first time we took our dog which also made for a great experience. The house had everything we needed in the kitchen for making our meals. Overall it was a great experience. When we first arrived and thought there may be a problem, Christy immediately returned our call but we discovered that there was not really a problem. It was so nice to get such a quick response in case we did have an issue. We would highly recommend using this house and going to Holden Beach.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad that you loved the house AND the beach. Cherish all the memories... and come back again anytime! Thank you so much!
Wonderful Relaxing Vacation Home
The house was lovely and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking.
The owners were wonderful to work with.
Home Away From Home
There's nothing like watching the ocean while sipping coffee in the morning and watching the ocean while sipping wine in the afternoon! Summer Breeze is the perfect house to do both! Christy and Mark are the perfect landlords. We had a few small issues come up during the time we were there, ( the kind that can happen at any house at any time ), and all it took was a quick call and the problems were taken care of. They make you feel like you are the most important people in the world! So accommodating and kind. Some of the local restaurants are closed during the winter, but we still found plenty that were open or we purchased fresh seafood and cooked our own. You won't go wrong with Summer Breeze.
Wonderful house....Wonderful vacation...
We go to the beach every Thanksgiving. This year was Holden Beach. We are very happy that we found this house for our Holiday week. The house had everything needed to cook a fantastic traditional Thanksgiving. The house was very clean and comfortable. We walked in and immediately felt at home.
Our dogs felt at home too. (Be careful of the plants that have burs). We found the grassy area behind the house was clear of burs and the perfect spot to walk the dogs. They enjoyed the wide open beaches and chasing balls on the beach.
We saw deer on the beach on the first morning and then later in the week a couple of lots down. I was able to take sunrise and sunset photos from the same balcony. This made Holden Beach and this house one of my all time favorite spots.
Thank you Christy and Mark for sharing your wonderful beach home with us.
