About Holden Beach, NC

Holden Beach is a barrier island of North Carolina. It’s located within 40 miles of both Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC. 125 golf courses are within a 1 hour drive from Holden Beach, 40 courses are within 30 minutes. Holden Beach is ranked by National Geographic Smart Traveler magazine as a Top Ten family beach and AAA Beach Vacation Travel Journal ranked it in the Top 30 beaches overall. It’s recognized as a top beach by USA Today and received National Healthy Beach status by NHBC, which rates beaches based on environmental qualities and services. On island boat ramp and local marinas make bringing your boat very easy.

The island is very long, but not very deep, which offers residents little crowding and a lot of beach “to themselves.” Very little commercial development is on the island itself, which is attractive to many visitors. A short drive over the bridge offers numerous specialty stores, shops, and restaurants, putt-putt golf, and waterslides. Large grocery store is available right off the island for easy shopping. The Town of Shallotte just 10 minutes away has several different grocery and department stores that provide all the necessities.

About Greg Prudhomme

We're a young family from Concord NC. Love outdoor activities and spending time at Holden Beach!

Greg Prudhomme purchased this house in 2009

Why Greg Prudhomme chose Holden Beach

We’ve been coming to the NC Barrier Islands since we were children, and have always hoped to have our own place here. Holden is a wonderful family beach, with SO many things to do within walking distance. Get on your bike and there’s even more! Drive over the bridge, and you have your choice of unique and fun shops, restaurants, you name it!

What makes this house unique

Being on the canal offers so much more to do when you're spending time at the beach. Bring a boat or a kayak and the world is your oyster. Ride over for a bite to eat at the Provision Company, or just cruise up and down the Intracoastal Waterway! Don’t have a boat? You’re a short walk to the big, beautiful Holden beaches! Want to just relax...have a seat on the gazebo, and enjoy the shade, the water view, and a cool breeze. Never a dull moment!

My wife and I stayed at Captain P's for our 30th anniversary. The home was clean and very spacious. Loved the boat dock and covered gazebo over the canal. Easy access to the beach and great location if you want to fish from the pier. It's literally a 30 second drive to pier. I would recommend it to everyone.

Also, the hammock is great after dark.

Thanks Greg, we really enjoyed it.

Charles and Tina

ps- I proposed to my wife on the beach and she said "YES" again!!!!

Great location. Very spacious, loved the hard wood floors. Some of the deck boards need replacement, but we enjoyed the covered deck. Will rent again.
