About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Including 11 miles of sandy beaches, Holden Beach is a true island connected to the mainland by a causeway across the Inter-coastal Waterway.

The ICW’s ocean access allows for both boating and fishing, and the area’s 35 golf courses provide endless golfing opportunities. A short drive will bring you to the Myrtle Beach outlet stores as well as historic Wilmington.

East of Eden boasts stunning views from both its glass front vaulted great room and decks facing the Atlantic and the Inter-coastal Waterway. Its private walk to the beach includes a dune deck for sand-less sunning, and a public beach walk one house over allows stair-free beach access.

This is a wonderful place for your next family reunion, office gathering or spiritual retreat. A truly peaceful family beach - there is no overcrowding or over development. This is a retreat for mind and body with an opportunity to observe nature.

Holden Beach is a registered Sea Turtle nesting ground, and the Monarch Butterflies also migrate through on their way to South America. Tidal pools and sandbars often have live conch shells and starfish (we ask that you leave these living specimens in the water), and it is possible to find whole sand dollars as well.

If you love kites, you will enjoy that the expansive beach is frequently graced with stunt kite flyers. Come make new memories at our beautiful beach!

Weekly rental is Saturday to Saturday. Weekly rates include cleaning fee. Partial week rates (available September through May) are subject to a $125 cleaning fee. Partial week rentals may be available out of high season based on rental schedule. Please contact us with any such requests and we will check availability.

Awesome weekend !!!

  • 5 of 5

Beach house was great ! In 20 years of beach rentals, East of Eden house had the best stocked kitchen. We brought our giant pot for frogmore stew and looked in cabinets and there was one there too. House was also very spacious and had plenty of bathroom. We used Dees By The Sea for linen rentals and Dee was awesome to work with and had reasonable prices.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place. The gated neighborhood keeps traffic and road noise close to zero. With only one row of houses behind it there are nice views from both the front and back. Being on the south/west end of the island there is a pretty long stretch of sand and dunes to get to the ocean but for carrying beach gear, a nearby public walkway gives a comfortable, easy walk all the way. Inside, the house is well equipped, clean, spacious and comfortable. Air conditioning and wifi worked well and the kitchen even had a waffle maker. The numerous bathrooms were very convenient especially since we had five teenage girls in our group. The homeowners recommendation for a local linen service was super and all the beds were made upon our arrival. Nice! Contacts with the homeowner answered quickly and pre-arrival information about the house, check-in and local area was very helpful. We have been vacationing in the area for many years but this was our first time at Holden Beach. We were very impressed and will return.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at East of Eden. The house was perfect for our crew with kids, teenagers and adults. The beds were very comfortable. I would make a suggestion, to rearrange some of the cabinets to accommodate our food purchases. Other than that, we enjoyed this property!

family time

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, clean, and everyone had plenty of private space. We enjoyed being together at the large dining room table for meals and on the comfy sofas for relaxing, playing games or watching a movie. The kitchen is very well furnished and a delight to cook in. The beach is very quiet as is the neighborhood. Our grandsons, 4 and 6, had a grand time playing in the surf, the tidal pools, and collecting shells. Liza is very conscientious and responded quickly to all our inquiries.

We enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. We selected the house because it could accommodate our family of 2 adults and 6 teenagers and children. The house was as advertised, and everyone was comfortable. The house was in good condition - our only minor areas of dissatisfaction concerned the usual wear and tear a house experiences towards the end of a rental season. We loved the island! All in all, it was a great week!
