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.

Why Jo Bishop chose Holden Beach
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.
Sports & Adventure Activities
The property was nice and convenient to the ocean. We enjoyed the views!
The porch views ( both front and back) were very nice! The kitchen view was awesome! We loved the layout of the home. It fit our need very well!
Boggy on Down was perfect for 3 families. Loved the beautiful view of marsh.
We had a great week the house was wonderful. The location and views of the marsh were spectacular. The younger kids only complaint was it didn't have a small pool to enjoy after coming in from the beach. I highly recommend this house , the owner was wonderful to work with. Thanks for sharing your beautiful. House with our family.
So glad you had a good week Karen! Please come back!
The perfect vacation home
This vacation home for our family of eight was perfect. The marsh behind us and the ocean being in front of us was the best of both!!! There were new comfortable chairs for the beach that we enjoyed along with rafts, bogey boards, and other beach toys. The house itself was comfortable with great windows that allowed the view of the marsh ( birds, deer, even a fawn to be clearly seen and enjoyed. There were rocking chairs out front on the high porch that caught the ocean breeze and view. The owner was a delight and you just can't go wrong renting this beach home.
Great location and great space! Roomy for 2 adults and 6 teens. We could hear the waves from the porch and see the ocean...very nice to have the porches for the rainy days we couldnt get to the beach. Jo was so accomodating before and during the trip!
The house was great and the owners were easy to work with. We had a wonderful visit!
A perfect week at the beach!
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!
Holden Beach is great for a laid back, old fashioned family beach vacation. No hustle and bustle here, just the sound of the ocean and kids playing. Golf nearby at Lockwood Folly Country Club, open to the public, call ahead.
