Overview

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 are made. I was born and raised in West Texas. My first view of the ocean was the Gulf Of Mexico in Biloxi, Mississippi at 13 years old. It was then, and is to this day, the most unbelievable place on earth, to me; the only thing bigger than Texas. It reminds me of my home state in that you can see forever just like the flats and huge horizons and BIG SKY of of West Texas. Raleigh, NC is my home now, when I am not at Holden Beach I work at the NC General Assembly / NC House of Representatives. I'm Ocean Front provides a peaceful escape which is most valued.

Bev Slagle purchased this house in 2004

Why Bev Slagle chose Holden Beach

My husband and I purchased I'm Ocean Front on our 39th wedding anniversary in 2004. Holden Beach is the first beach our two children ever visited in the 70's , 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 guests who fall in love with 'I'm Ocean Front'. Each welcomed guest leaves a special memory at the cottage which lasts all seasons long.

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, right from your own front porch. I'm oceanfront truly took me far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday live.

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

We loved Holden Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Holden Beach the week of July 4th. Even though it was a holiday week, there wasn't an overabundance of people...just what we hoped. We loved being able to enjoy the view of the ocean and beach from the living room and front porch and the very short walk to to the beach was perfect for all of us. The house was clean and cute. A nice fit for our family. Our children enjoyed the ping pong and fusball tables downstairs. Many fun memories were made.

A very cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at I'm Ocean Front! It was a very cozy home away from home. The location was perfect for us as we went with another family and had children from 5-11 years old. We were just steps away from the beach which made it very easy for getting all of our "things" out to the beach.

We decided to plan meals to cook at home and the kitchen had everything we needed for that!

We will definitely plan to stay again!!!

This cute adorable beach house was just perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house so much. It was charming and nicely located right on the beach!! It was a quiet spot in spite of its close proximity to public access! Don't let that deter you!! This home was well worth its rental cost! And Bev was more than accommodating and quickly returned any text or phone call! The happy and charming decor added to the homey appeal of this property!!! Thanks so much to Bev for opening her home for rental! Will certainly consider it for our next trip!!!

OCEAN FRONT HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

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.
