About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10) CHECK IN: 3 PM / CHECK OUT: 10 AM

'I'm Ocean Front' will take you where you want to be -- a breathtaking unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. Inside or outside, you will instantly relax. Overhead the Brown Pelicans will fly in formation, if you are lucky you will spy Bald Eagle fishing for dinner.

This home is one story with living, kitchen and eating area, and bedrooms on the same level. The ocean front balcony has rocking, lounge, and straight-backed chairs for a full view of the Atlantic Ocean. The balcony in the back overlooks the big dunes. All bedrooms have TV's, and DVD players.

!!!The downstairs room (separate entrance) is great for card games, ping pong, TV, and DVD, or listening to music, It is a place for the kids or adults to escape to for some fun without disturbing those who want some quiet time. I'm Ocean Front is truly a place for all ages.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE! Avoid outside shower after dark! As in any wild environment, Holden Beach is home to snakes and they look for damp, dark resting places. Snake bits can occur.

There is an outside shower with hot & cold running water to wash off that salt and sand before you go inside. The boardwalk on the property takes you to the narrow one-lane road, to steps over the dune (where the deer feed at night) to the beach.

Holden Beach is a very special place for families, friends, and lovers (weddings are a common sight on the beach). There is night life close by if that is your desire, fresh sea food 'made to order' or sold on the island (brought in by the local fishermen) if you want to prepare a seafood feast at home in your fully equipped kitchen (see reviews).

'I'm Ocean Front' is approximately 1 mile from the bridge --- and only 40 paces from the sand and surf. If you want to venture out historic Southport is 19 mi; Old Baldy Lighthouse is just across the Cape Fear River from Southport; back at Holden Beach you can see her light from your rocking chair on a clear night. You can drive to Myrtle Beach, SC for entertainment or shopping. Historic Wilmington, NC is wonderful (pre-American Revolution)- see the Battle Ship of NC or take the boardwalk on the Cape Fear River. Eat at Elisha’s, the Pilot House, or The Dock Street Oyster Bar (all local favorites) for a really good meal.

Of course,,, you can just opt to wind down, play and relax, marval at the wonders of nature and find a star! What ever you choose I promse you will take home a lifetime of special memories.

About Bev Slagle

My family loves I'm Ocean Front, it is a place where wonderful memories have and will be made for my family and hopefully yours.

Bev Slagle purchased this house in 2004

Why Bev Slagle chose Southern Coast

My husband and I purchased I'm Ocean Front on our 39th wedding anniversary in 2003. Holden Beach is the first beach our two children ever visited and we took them back every year when they were young. The home has been completely renovated, it is a beach cottage in the true sense of the word. Guests find it most enjoyable. We have been fortunate to have repeat renters who fall in love with 'I'm Ocean Front'. It is a cottage you want to share as fond memories are made there.

What makes this house unique

East end of the beach is less crowded and less traffic, yet close to the 'big' bridge to the mainland and island restaurants.. Beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bev,

We had SUCH a wonderful visit! Lots of 'doing' and lots of relaxing. It's ALWAYS delightful to come to I'm Oceanfront :-). (Caroline LOVED your new sign inside) And the kids say hello to Miss Bev.

It was great to have lunch in Wilmington and finally get to meet face to face. we did go back the next week and take the trolley tour and go back to THE PILOT HOUSE (mmmmm!)

Enjoy your week and thanks! Cathy & Leslie

Wonderful time in Holden beach!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Our vacation was incredible and the only regret is that it is over and now we wish we had more time. It was nice to see fathers who normally would be too busy with work, relax and spend quality time with their kids and moms relax and not have to cook. Holden beach has grown since we were last there but it is still a great place to relax and visit. The house is comfortable and well kept and we hope to visit again someday. Thanks again for all of your help.

AWESOME! You could not beat the convenience to the beach. The view is absolutely amazing. It is a quiet peaceful and peaceful location. Working with the owner was very pleasant and I made a good friend to discuss politics. I highly recommend it and I have already served my week for next year. Bev, thank you so much.

This house was exactly as advertised. Very clean, bright and wonderful view of the ocean from the deck. Will definitely return next year. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Thanks, Bev for sharing your beautiful property

Perfect walk across the street to beach

  • 4 of 5

House is perfect if you plan to spend most of your time on the beach. The proximity of the house to the sand is less than a block (you cross the street and the beach access is right there) Rooms are small, living room is open and plenty of room. The kitchen is modern, although one of the stove burners did not work. The house is perfect for 6 people, any larger and it gets cramped in the kitchen/dining area. Bev was prompt with responding to emails. The downstairs had a musty smell and outdated. The only way to get to basement is from outside. There was no way to enter back deck due to access was boarded up. Despite some of these issues, we enjoyed our stay

A great place to relax and play!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this lovely cottage on Holden Beach. We have never stayed at this end of Holden so did not know what to expect. We found the beach to be far less crowded and relaxing --great for our family of 5 adults and a 3 year old.

Everything was as described regarding the property. The spacious refrigerator was perfect for all the food and beverages we just had to have. The kitchen had everything we needed. We tended to eat in frequently but did enjoy a couple area restaurants. The house and separate rec room stayed cool and comfortable. Bev was a super host who really wanted you to enjoy your stay and was quick to respond to questions. In fact no personal sand toys were needed as there was a large assortment for our granddaughter to play with every day just like she said.

Thank you for an enjoyable time at the beach!

Our "new" home away from home....

  • 5 of 5

"Another perfect week at the beach..." That was the most used statement as we packed up our things and headed home. We had a wonderful stay at this vacation property. This ocean front bungalow provided a cozy and comfortable stay for our family of eight. We especially enjoyed the close proximity to the beach, coffee mornings on the front porch, a well stocked kitchen of all cooking utensils, and a kid friendly play room.

We do feel very blessed to have had the oppurtunity to stay at this vacation rental. We are already planning our next beach stay at "I'm Oceanfront" for summer 2017.
