Property description

Sunny blue and yellow decor welcome you to this Holden Beach cottage. Refreshing views of the ocean and intra-coastal waterway abound, with plenty of decks and seating for viewing with ease. 'Holden Sol' sits on a quiet street that is one avenue behind Ocean Boulevard and the ocean. For those familiar with Holden, it is across from the 'Marker 55' community fronting the Intracoastal Waterway.

Bikes and beach chairs, as well as beach toys and rafts are all there. Linens can be rented before arrival. There are two full bathrooms plus a large enclosed outside shower. Beds include 2 twins, 1 queen. 'Holden Sol' is well appointed with kitchen amenities, washer dryer, dishwasher, etc. A favorite part of the house is the rooftop deck for sunsets and moon rises!

It is truly 'Away from it all!'

Our home is positioned with open lots both front and back, so views are plentiful. Beach access is optimal. The beach is close enough that guests go back to the house several times a day. (To make lunch, get drinks, put a baby down for a nap, etc,)

Holden Beach is situated 40 minutes South of Wilmington and 45 miles North of Myrtle Beach. It is a short drive to historic Southport, NC and the ferry to Bald Head Island, as well as other coastal North Carolina attractions.

This is a small, well appointed two bedroom duplex just across the street from direct beach access. There are two bathrooms. 'Holden Sol' can easily accommodate 4 people. Beach chairs, kayak, beach toys, and other amenities are available for your use. Porches allow for your private relaxation in and out of the sunshine. An outside shower, hammock chair and bench swing under the back deck help keep the summer heat away.

For those less familiar with Holden Beach, the island is truly 'sleepy' with 2 and 3 story homes and little commercial activity on island. From our home, it is an easy bike ride to the store for provisions, daily newspaper or fresh fish, clams or shrimp for dinner. Similarly, its a short bike ride to 'The Chapel' on Holden, an interdenominational church. In the Summer, there are often weekly events, including concerts and dancing, sponsored by the Town of Holden Beach. Biking up with chairs and a cooler is a great change of pace.

If you're looking for an uncrowded beach experience, Holden Beach is exceptionally well placed. And, subjectively, we think 'Holden Sol' is, too.

Car: Necessary

Holden Beach (HB) is a quiet island located on the southeast coast of North Carolina just 45 minutes north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and 40 minutes south of Wilmington, NC. Holden Beach island is 9 miles in length and offers secluded white sandy beaches. HB has a well deserved national reputation as a quiet, family-oriented vacation destination with restrictions on development. National Geographic 'Traveler' magazine and AAA have rated Holden Beach one of the best family beaches in the country. The island has a 35-foot height limit for buildings, and most of the commercial property is on the mainland side of the Intra-Coastal Waterway. Holden Beach has a unique location on the US East coast (the beaches run from east to west), the sun appears to rise out of the ocean and follow over the dunes of the beach before it sets back into the ocean in the evening. This phenomenon is best viewed during the fall and winter months of the year.

Other Activities: Terrific for readers, bikers and families looking for quality downtime.

Golf: Conveniently located and close to spectacular beaches, there are many courses within a 10 mile radius, including Lockwood Folly and The National. The Big Cats of Ocean Ridge Plantation are close by, as well. All three of these Cats made Golf Digest’s recent list of the Top 50 Courses of Myrtle Beach and the challenging Tiger’s Eye® ranked #3.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach, NC, USA:
'Holden Sol' on Holden Beach has been our home & refuge 'Away from it all' for many years. It has a relaxing pace that makes it hard to leave. (*You'll see.) Holden Beach island, itself, is charming beach community with uncrowded beaches and easy water access to both beach and intracoastal waterway. It's so relaxed it's 'sleepy'. Annually, the island is recognized as one of the best family beaches in the nation including by AAA, National Geographic Smart Traveler and American Profile magazines. We simply love it. We hope you will, as well.
