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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
