Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Come relax at Tranquil Tides, in the Seaside at Winding River subdivision of Holden Beach. Enjoy fabulous unobstructed ocean views with easy beach access across the street. Our home is located at 159 Ocean Boulevard East, on the quiet east end of Holden Beach, less than half a mile from the bridge.

Tranquil Tides is our home away from home, so we've loaded it with our favorite creature comforts, including a surround sound stereo system, 36' HD plasma TV/DVR w/DirecTV movie package-all premium movie channels, Major League Baseball package, DVDs, games, puzzles, and books. But the best part is the fabulous view of the Atlantic - you can see, hear, and smell the ocean from our home.

We love to cook, and fresh, local seafood is abundant on the island. The kitchen is fully loaded with quality cooking utensils, pots and pans, electric griddle, slow cooker, coffee grinder, coffee maker, and a beverage center to chill your favorite drinks. Heading out to the beach? Take along one of our coolers to keep things fresh and cold. The newly renovated, private community oceanfront beach club and pool includes restrooms and shower facilities. And if work calls while you're enjoying vacation, never fear. The entire house is WiFi capable, and there's a desk located in the downstairs office/bedroom.

After a day at the beach, there's no need to bring the party inside. Cook dinner on the Weber gas grill downstairs and relax in the outdoor seating area (or hammock) and watch the sun go down. After dinner, meander out to the front deck to sit in a cozy rocker and watch for dolphins. Then fall into blissful slumber listening to the sounds of the sea on upgraded deluxe bedding, pillows and down comforters. The upstairs king master bedroom is equipped with a Tempur-pedic mattress.

Note--Tranquil Tides is only available as a weekly rental, from Saturday to Saturday. Check in is 4:00 PM and check out is 10:00 AM. Please check the calendar for available dates.

About Maria Surprise and/or John Woods

I grew up in Chesapeake, VA, and always dreamed of owning a place on the coast. John and I found Holden Beach in 1998, about three years into our marriage. We love the laid back, family-friendly vibe of Holden Beach. We think it's the perfect place to get away from it all.

Maria Surprise and/or John Woods purchased this house in 1999

Why Maria Surprise and/or John Woods chose Southern Coast

We love the quiet of Holden Beach. You can always find a spot on the beach, even in the height of the summer season. And if you really want to check out the nightlife, Wilmington and North Myrtle Beach are just 45 minutes away by car.

What makes this house unique

We love having the beach access directly across the street, and the community beach clubhouse with private pool is great fun. We're only a half-mile from Capt'n Pete's Seafood Market, so you can walk to pick up the fresh catch of the day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We love coming down here to swim, golf, eat and spend good family time. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Great house!

The oceanfront community pool and clubhouse includes private restrooms and shower facilities. Access requires a special security key card. Two key cards are available for a refundable $200 deposit. If you only need one card, it is a $100 deposit. Even though it may seem high, this is the price we have to pay our Association for replacement of a lost, damaged, or stolen card. The pool is not heated, but it is open from May through September. We share the pool with our entire community, but even during peak season, there is room enough for all. Our community walkway leads from the beach to the intracoastal waterway. Dock fishing available on the waterway in the neighborhood. Marina slips may be available for boaters; check before booking as these fill up fast.

We love this beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last 2 summers in this home and we loved it! It's clean and well furnished! The kitchen is well equipped for those of you that enjoy cooking. The have a blender so you can prepare your favorite tropical drinks. We had family that joined us and stayed in other homes on the same road and our place was always the place everyone gathered. It has easy access to the beach. Our family really enjoys sitting on the upstairs patio in the evenings talking and viewing the ocean. We'll definitely be back!

Great Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us share your wonderful home this past week! We had a blast just going from the beach to the pool and back again. The location could not have been more perfect! No traffic, plenty of space on the beautiful beach, great waves and a refreshing pool with a very friendly staff. Our favorite part of the day was sitting on the front porch drinking a bottle of wine and listening and watching the waves, the ultimate in relaxation! We left our beach toys for some other young ones to use when they visit. We hope we can come back again!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation at our home! Thank you very much for the excellent review and for leaving the beach toys for future guests. If they're still there when we return in the fall, we will keep them safe for next season. We'd love to have you back as a return guest!
