This is our 3rd time staying in this lovely home. It is the perfect size for my young family of 4. It has a lovely view of the ocean and beach access is just a short walk away. The pool is awesome, a must have with little ones. Leigh is great--friendly and helpful! Thanks for another great vacation! We are looking forward to next year!

This house was very neat and clean.

The beautiful pool was a highlight for us, as was the essy walk to the beach. The decks, front and back, and the pool area provided us with ample seating to enjoy the sunrise, sunset and ocean view. We enjoyed a wonderful week at Holden Beach!

Beautiful and charming home close to the ocean with a wonderful pool area

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time . The house has an ocean view from the porch it was so relaxing to set there at night and look out across the ocean. We were a quick walk to the beach . The many side streets and sidewalks were great for our family to ride bikes and explore the area a little more. The owner is friendly and wonderful she communicates well if you have any needs or questions. Our little girl loved the private pool . She had such a great playing and there are many cozy places to sit and relax. We hope to return sometime!!

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.

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 Holden Beach

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.
