About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 in beds)

Great 2nd Row, 4 BR + 2nd den house-982 Ocean Blvd West

Enjoy the views of the marsh, waterway, and ocean of Holden Beach from the balconies of this 2nd row inverted floor plan beach home. Boggy on Down is a nicely maintained, nicely decorated home. The back of the house boasts unobstructed marsh and Intracoastal Waterway views where you can watch the tide roll in and enjoy the island deer.

The main top level has hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a large open family room with a 46 inch flat screen cable TV and DVD player (non blue ray). The TV is a smart TV, so if you have a Netflix account, you can hook up to it and rent shows or movies. The dining room table seats 10. There is a well equipped kitchen with a large window overlooking the marsh. Master Bedroom with a King size bed, small TV and bathroom with tub/shower combo are on this floor.

A 2nd downstairs den is a great place to send the kids to play and hang out with their own TV/DVD. This den also has a queen pull out sleeper sofa (Note: the den does not have a door and is open to the hallway, so is not a private area like a bedroom). 3 more bedrooms (1 queen, 1 queen, 2 twins) and 2 more bathrooms are on this floor, as are the full size washer and dryer.

There is also High Speed Internet, an outside hot/cold shower, lots of rockers, a gas grill, and a picnic table. Easy private beach access is a quick walk (approximately 7 houses down). There are also approximately 6 beach chairs and a pull cart in the outside storage room available for your use at the beach.

Linens for all beds and the sleeper sofa are provided from Memorial Day to Labor Day with weekly rentals only. Guests are required to bring or rent towels.

Holden Beach is the perfect place to relax, read, jog and bike. Stretch out on the long wide beach, fish at the pier, enjoy the water slides or putt putt at the nearby pavilion. Lots of nearby golf courses. If you are lucky, you may see a turtle hatching one night!

Holden Beach has been ranked in the top 10 Beaches by National Geographic Smart Traveler and is in the Top 30 overall beaches of the AAA Vacation Travel Journal.

About Jo Bishop

When not at Holden Beach, we reside with our son in Charlotte. We've enjoyed many fun-filled family vacations at Holden Beach. We hope you'll enjoy our place as much as we do!

Jo Bishop purchased this house in 2004

Why Jo Bishop chose Southern Coast

We have been coming to Holden Beach for years and love its laid back attitude.

What makes this house unique

During certain tides and moon phases, the marsh behind our house fills up with water. It is absolutely breathtaking! We often see Island deer and egrets in the marsh. It is fun to relax on the back deck and watch the boats go by in the Intracoastal Waterway.

A perfect week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Boggy on Down was the perfect location for our family vacation this year. After 30 years, we brought together 3 generations (5 adults & 2 children) for a week of fun in the sun. This was our first trip to Holden Beach and it did not disappoint! The house was the perfect size for our 3 families to spread out and have our own space. We especially enjoyed the 4 decks! The beaches were perfect, clean and uncrowded. Plenty of activities to keep everyone happy all week long: playing in the ocean, building sand castles, looking for shells and keeping an eye on the turtle nests, water slides and Shallotte River Swamp Park (highly recommend the Aerial Adventure!) golf and shopping in Southport and Calabash. Plenty of good restaurants within a 30 minute drive. Our favorite was Boone Docks, located right in Holden Beach next to the water slides. It was so good, we ate there twice! And Old Ferry Seafood for fresh shrimp and grouper that we cooked at the house was out of this world! Plenty of memories to last us until our next vacation - that my 8 year old is already planning and wants to return to Holden Beach!

Very nice and accommodated us wonderfully!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! We saw beautiful sunsets over the marsh on the back deck every night! Also watched a couple of deer prancing through the marsh at low tide! The ocean view from the front of the house was such a treat as well, especially watching the full moon rise over the water on summer solstice. Highly recommend!

A great place close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My wife, our two sons and their families (ten of us all together) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bogger Down (yes, that is spelled correctly, at least I'm pretty sure). The house was in a great location, within easy walking distance of the beach, which was most important to my family. There were also great views of both the ocean surf and the Intercoastal Waterway. The views of the Waterway from the kitchen and back deck of the house were tremendous. The house was also plenty big enough, even for our four grandsons. All the essentials (dishes, etc.) were there. And Jo stayed in contact with us prior to our trip. The only issues we had at all were that the house was a little run-down and the water pressure was very low. But, it's a beach house and we did not expect it to be perfect. As I said, we really enjoyed the house and Holden Beach itself. We fully expect to return next year and hopefully many years to come. Thanks Jo!!

Relaxing vacation at beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed spending a week at this lovely beach house. Our favorite part was the marsh view from the kitchen window. The rooms and living space in the house met our families' needs perfectly. We also enjoyed sitting on both front and back porches in the evenings and early mornings to watch sunsets and sunrises. Owners were very prompt and accommodating with all of our questions and needs. Thank you for sharing your beach home with us. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Great Family Time at the Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed being together in this gorgeous Beach home! We especially enjoyed the options of 2 decks with comfy rocking chairs to sit in the back with a view of wildlife, the marsh, and boats on the inter-coastal and of course from the front deck the sounds and smell of the salty ocean with a pretty good view. The living/dining area was very spacious and the home was clean when we arrived! We enjoyed Beaches and Cream homemade ice cream, shrimp burgers from the Provision and a girls lunch day out in Southport, a cute little town nearby where they filmed the movie Safe Haven! The owner of the home was very nice to work with! We had never been to Holden Beach, but liked it and hopefully will get to go back someday!
