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 queen 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.
Starting in 2016 SHEETS and TOWELS will be 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!
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 2008
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!
The house was lovely and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking.
The owners were wonderful to work with.
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.
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.
This is such an amazing house. The pictures does not do this house justice. The views were great. The house was wonderfully decorated and well stocked. Christy was so great to work with. She was so kind and very wuick to answer sny questions. We had 2 families of 4 stay abd we were all comfortable. One family from Colorado and was first visit to the beach. We cannot wait for our next trip to Holden and Summer Breeze!
We had two families of four and the set up could not have been more perfect. Two bedrooms and bath upstairs for one family and same set up downstairs. A table that comfortably sat all eight of us with a view of the ocean from our front door. Kids could run back and forth from beach to the house in a flash and we could watch them from the front porch (or upper porch) or just relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. The weather was ideal - not too hot, only a few evening showers - and we took full advantage. Bedding was extremely comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with quality cookware - we had no issues cooking for all of us each day. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and we have found a new favorite place at the beach. Holden Beach itself was a real find - felt like a small enclave where everyone knows everyone...none of that Myrtle Beach madness we're so used to. We'll definitely be back!!! Christy was so easy to work with and ensured our stay was stress free.
My husband, my daughter & son in law, my son in law's dad & I spent the most wonderful Thanksgiving Week at Mark & Christy's beautiful oceanfront home!! We have stayed on Oak Island 4X and Holden Beach 2X, starting when our daughter was in college in central NC & it was easier for us to spend a vacation in NC rather than drive back & forth to MD with her. This year was an absolute joy dealing with Christy-I emailed her numerous times with questions, which she politely answered each time. Our daughter is married now & they have a dog, so this was out first time renting a beach house with one. Summer Breeze has the most absolute STUNNING ocean views, which we enjoyed from both decks. We unluckily had Winter Storm Boreas (sp?) come across the island while we there, hitting us with 50+ MPH winds & horrendous sheets of rain the middle of the week, esp one evening, when I thought we were going "to OZ!" One "advantage" of the storm was the number of gorgeous shells we were able to collect the next morning. A few of them even had hermit crabs harboring themselves inside the shells from the storm! The beginning of the week was very chilly & windy; the end of the week we had a slight break in the wind & the temps climbed a bit. Last year we were spoiled with temps in the mid 70's & lots of sunshine!! The house is so attractively decorated that we were so comfortable all week. The kitchen is stocked perfectly for ANY type of meal you may want to make. We had everything we needed to make Thanksgiving dinner for the five of us!
We loved the brightly colored walls; all beds were comfortable & nicely dressed. It was nice to have a comfy sofa & loveseat, as we watched a bit more TV than expected! We took the ferry to Fort Fisher one day; did a day trip to Myrtle Beach, SC(don't miss the store "The Mole Hole" & their "Kameleon" jewelry "POPS" collection-My daughter & I got matching "POPS," S/S holders & S/S necklaces that we will wear & always remember our wonderful weeks on the Brunswick Islands.) The guys did a day trip to the USS North Carolina that they enjoyed immensely, since my son in law just got out of the Army in 1/13. Sheba Sue,my gran'dawg'ter,was born & raised in Kansas for the first 6 1/2 yr of her life,so this was the first time she saw the ocean or waves.She barked at them, chased them & had a ball.Wasn't quite sure of the crabs!We would recommend this beach house to anyone;it was better than the pictures;we loved working with Christy and hope to again!
crabbing, amazing beaches
