About Leigh Whitfield

Hey there! I'm Jeff and this is my lovely wife of 33 years, Leigh. We are from Salisbury, North Carolina and discovered Holden Beach in 1983 after I had gotten out of the Navy and we opened a restaurant at Holden Beach called The Seafood Peddler. After 15 years in the restaurant business, our son Skyler was born in 1993.

We were recently very blessed to find this jewel of a house, like finding a huge shark's tooth in the sand. We have made it our own...and have added all the special touches that our creativity would allow. Now we'd like to share it all with you and your family. Our goal is that you'll fall in love with this vacation cottage and want to rent it year after year!

Leigh Whitfield purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Leigh Whitfield chose Southern Coast

We recognized the special character of Holden Beach upon our first visit in 1983. Thus, we have been here ever since. We respect the fine families that come back year after year for the beauty and innocence of this seaside vacation destination. Step back in time and enjoy the simple pleasures of the ocean!

What makes this cottage unique

The single most impressive aspect of our beach cottage is the stunning ocean view and private saltwater pool! You kind of feel like your on a cruise ship when gazing out of the 12 foot glass door unit. This cottage has just been completely remodeled with ALL NEW APPLIANCES, bedding, furniture and black granite. Almost everything is brand new! We are conveniently located on the Island with the Pier and General Store just down the road a piece. Both bedroom suites have a glamorous view and direct access to the private swimming pool with huge party deck.

Happy Summer House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay in this cute little house. There is not a house built across and to the right of the house so there is a gorgeous view of the ocean! The backyard is like an oasis and we loved hanging out by the pool. The kids loved ping pong in the garage/basement too! The house is small, but just what we needed and we didn't have any problems with space. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us! It is decorated so uniquely! Very eclectic and homey!

Great Cottage, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful cottage for our family of 4. The beach was just 1 block away with a quick beach access and the pool at the house was just the perfect ending after a long day at the beach. The house itself was clean and the kitchen was stocked well with dishes and everything you need to prepare meals. I loved the decor and all the little touches everywhere in the house. Holden Beach is a great place for families and is quiet! Thanks Leigh for everything, we really enjoyed staying in your home.

Beautiful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay in Holden Beach. Leigh was great to work with, and she kept the place perfect with everything we needed! It was great to have our own private pool, to use anytime we wanted! Perfect for hot afternoons after mornings at the beach. And beach access was just steps away... couldn't have been easier. We felt so lucky to have unobstructed views of the ocean while staying in a second row house. The front covered balcony was perfect for watching the ocean while drinking morning coffee. The inside of the house had everything we could have asked for, all in perfect condition and well-maintained.

We have traveled to a different North Carolina beach every year for the past 5 years, but this house has us wanting to return again to Holden Beach!

Always wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three have been staying in this beautifully decorated beach cottage for three consecutive summers now. The cottage is perfect in every way. To have access to both the private pool as well as such close proximity to the beach(public beach access is across the street; 4 houses down) allows you to have the best of both worlds(and keeps everyone happy). The cottage is well equipped from everything you need in the kitchen to a game room, washer/dryer and extra bathroom/shower unit downstairs to wash off from the pool/beach. There are an abundance of games, beach toys and accessories as well as ping pong table. However, my favorite part of the cottage is the gorgeous ocean view from the wide front porch. While sitting in the rocking chairs, you can see dolphins during the day, stars at night and listen to the ocean waves at any given time! We highly recommend this cottage not only for the comfort and location, but also for the pleasure of working with Leigh who is so accommodating.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family of four! It was so welcoming and all the little details made it feel like home. It was a clean, comfortable and relaxing place to stay. My favorite time of the day, morning coffee on the front porch with the beach view! The beach access was just a short walk as described. The pool was a great bonus since the tide was a little strong for the kids a few days. We hope to visit the shores of Holden Beach again soon and would definitely recommend staying at the "Isle of View". Leigh, thanks for sharing your home!
