About Jill Rufus

We purchased this home in 2003 and completely remodeled it- removing and selling all the furnishings and lovingly spent 3 months living in the home to complete the work. My husband is a contractor/commercial real estate broker and organized the entire process. An interior designer came in from Alabama and custom made all the window treatments, bedding and slip covers. We enjoy spending time at this home with our four boys, now 11, 9, 8 and 7.

Why Jill Rufus chose Southern Coast

A former boss had a vacation home in Holden Beach that we rented for a month. After this stay, we fell in love with the idea of vacationing here often.

What makes this house unique

The home is right on the beach, but close enough where we can sit on either back deck and watch the kids play in the ocean. There is no public beach access on either side of the house, or for a few blocks each way, so the sand in front of the house is usually ours to enjoy. We can spread out in the two living rooms and prepare food in each of the kitchens. Usually our bikes litter the driveway and the boys just had us purchase a basketball goal which is used daily. We can walk to some of the restaurants (or bike) and usually enjoy a beach walk each day to the pier for ice cream.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There were four moms and 10 kids- we all came for Spring Break. We had babies through 8 year olds. The house made it easy for us to spread out. The multiple kitchens were great for storage and food prep. The beach was so easy to get to just walking off the back porch down a few steps and we were on sand.

Provisions Restaurant on the Waterway for seafood and THE Purple Onion in Shallotte for breakfast and bakery. Very nice owner.

Great family week

  • 5 of 5

My whole family really enjoyed our week at the beach. The house was spacious & very comfortable. Having seven bedrooms was a huge plus! Also the beach was a short walk away. It was ideal for our grandchildren & all their beach toys. We hope we can rent from Jill again next year!

3 Years in a row at this house. LOVE IT!

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at this property three seasons in a row and won't go anywhere else. You can't find a better location. We love the upstairs and downstairs porches with rocking chairs that are right on the ocean. We have our coffee out there in the mornings. We love the sound of the waves crashing all during the days and nights. Love the privacy of two completely separate living rooms and kitchens, so everyone can be doing different things during the stay. (Video games downstairs; movie watching upstairs). Love having so many TVs with all the great stations, and the free WiFi in the house is awesome! We play on the basketball goal a couple times during the week, and we play football and frisbee out on the beach at sunset.

We so enjoy visiting Southport, and we also love heading into Wilmington. On occasion, we'll hop over to Myrtle Beach too, if we want a great spa day at a place called Cinzia Spa.

Always a great trip. Always the perfect house!

Owner's Response: This individual messaged us, asked us for a lease after agreeing on a price, then messaged us that she couldn't pay a deposit, and asked it to be decreased. When we agreed to this and sent her a new lease, she responded several weeks later that she couldn't pay for the house and was no longer interested. We appreciate communication back and forth, but this traveler was very difficult in making a commitment and it is probably a blessing that things didn't work out.
