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 Holden Beach
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.

GREAT vacation especially for families with children!
The home is cozy and well appointed. The beds are comfortable and there’s plenty of space. The location is absolutely ideal. The owner was wonderful to work with! We hope to stay again in the future! We watched dolphins each day as we drank coffee on the porch. Even though it was chilly as it was winter, we were very pleased with our stay. They have baby gates and child booster seats for the dining table, there are puzzles and books and plenty to watch on tv. It really is an ideal home especially for families!
A true beach Cottage!
You will enjoy this beach cottage if you are a true beach lover. The cottage had enough rooms for 3 families and was very comfortable. We spent the entire Thanksgiving week and had an amazing time every single day. The view to the beach from the house is a paradise from sun up to sun down, rain or shine. The owners of the home were very nice and there if you need to call them. The people we met on the beach were all so friendly and warm. I mostly liked this beach because it is organically preserved, serene, and not so "tourist-ty". I would most definitely come back to this home in the near future.
Outstanding beach front access!
This was my second stay in this wonderful home. It is spacious and well organized so that there is plenty of room if you have a large family or a group of friends. The furniture and beds are stylish and comfortable but designed so that you don't worry about ruining anything if you come into the house a little wet or with sand on your feet. The view and access to the beach is amazing and having your first cup of coffee watching the sunrise from one of the beach side porches is worth the trip!
As someone who has spent many summers at the beach, the beach front access this house affords is unbeatable. Because it is literally on the beach, you should expect a little sand in the house and things not to be pristine -- sand and salt water take its toll. But the location cannot be beat -- it is within walking distance to restaurants and a short drive from several shopping areas.
I love that I could work when I needed to (WIFI was great), watch TV occasionally (every bedroom and sitting room has a TV), and have quiet time on the porch while kids were gathering shells on the beach. Two kitchens allowed us to have family meals upstairs but keep plenty of beverages and snacks downstairs. The kitchens are well stocked with pots/pans, appliances, utensils and dishes so you can cook just about anything.
The owner provided excellent customer service and ensuring we had an excellent stay. I would highly recommend staying at this house. I hope to do so again in the near future!
Fabulous ocean front home with plenty of space!
Loved staying at this spacious ocean front home for a girls trip. We felt like we were on our own private beach. We enjoyed playing in the water and collecting fabulous shells. We found the house very well appointed for our needs and really loved having two kitchens. I can't remember sleeping so soundly on a vacation, the bed was very comfortable. Can't wait to make a return trip to Holden beach and would be delighted to stay here again.
Review from a critic
We are a family that owns 2 properties at Holden, but not on the ocean. In order for everyone to stay together and really enjoy the beach, we have rented for over 25 years. It is difficult to find a house that suits and works for all of us. My parents are in their 80's and handicapped. It is difficult for them to manage stairs. Although there are two floors, everything they needed was on the ground level. Steps into the house and to the beach are minimal and that along with a handicapped bathroom made it so much easier. In addition, we so enjoyed the porches. You are able to view the ocean and street from each level. The home is so close to the restaurants, seafood market, bridge, grocery store and shops that little time is wasted driving. And tv's everywhere so everyone is happy! Owner was also a joy to work with. All questions were answered promptly!
We enjoyed working with Doris. She came by and viewed the property before reserving the unit. We chatted quite a bit via text and they took immaculate care of the property. She messaged us back asking for availability for another stay!
Beautiful Home. Amazing Location. Can't wait to go back next year!
I was here for a family reunion--and we couldn't have picked a better home! House had plenty of room for all of us, and I felt like we had the best location on the entire beach. I literally walked right from the porch onto the beach and into the ocean. The house was great with the big kitchen, comfy beds, all the good TV stations, margarita machines and upstairs and downstairs kitchens. Loved the outdoor shower so we could rinse off after a long day at the beach. Nice touch.
We met the maid as we were arriving and she couldn't have been nicer. She was so accommodating and gave us great tips for grocery shopping and good local seafood. (Sugar Shack in Ocean Isle!!!) We also spent a day in visiting Southport. Be sure to go!
I slept with my windows open at night and I can't tell you how much I miss hearing the ocean waves. I can't wait to go back to this house next year. Best location, hands down!
Thanks for staying at It's Five O'clock Somewhere. We are glad you enjoyed it and we agree, the location is amazing!!!
