About the property

No shirt no shoes! Yes you are at the right place. It will be the best bargain on the ocean front through 2018. I will freeze your rate through that year!!! Next freeze is through 2020.

Escape to a true Pana-sea-a (former name). It then became The Parrothead Palace Too. After I sold my other house this is and forever will be 'The Parrothead Palace.' This home has transistioned from a traditional 80's Beach House to a more colorful comfortable home that says 'Welcome to the Island.

Kick back in one of the four recliners and enjoy the view from the large living room area. Well stocked kitchen is on the first floor also.

The first floor has 3 Bedrooms:

1 Queen bedroom on the street side with private bath entrance.

1 Queen bedroom on the oceanfront with private entrance shared with the 2 full size beds.

1 bedroom with 2 full size beds on the street side with private bath entrance shared with queen mentioned above.

The second floor has 2 bedrooms:

1 King sized bedroom on the ocean front wth private bath.

1 bedroom with 2 full size beds on the streetside with private bath.

The house is located at 637 Ocean Blvd. West about a mile beyond the pier. Spacious house decorated to suit it's name. 4 TV's, DVD, VCR. Two covered porches facing the ocean. One large open-air deck on the ocean side behind the dunes, to sit and enjoy a cool one, while watching the sun set. There are 2 outdoor showers. One on the boardwalk and one enclosed underneath the house. The house faces south towards the equator maximizing sun exposure. This house is on a narrow part of the island with inland waterway views and only one row of houses behind it on the second row, assuring as close as you will ever get to your own 50' of private beach. Bed Linens and Towels are NOT provided. You can call Beach Fun Rentals to have them delivered for your stay if you choose. Dianna's number at Beach Fun is 910 842-9600 or 888 355-4446.

This home is privately cleaned after each departure and this is included in the rental fee. A contracted local handy man is available if anything is needed.

The Parrothead was with a rental agency for years and has many repeat guests who have stayed with me after I pulled it from the agency. I now have a nice base of repeat guests and I try to reward them for their loyalty by doing the rate freeze. Come on down, "It's Five O'Clock Here."

House books Saturday to Saturday. Check in is 4:00pm check out 10:00am. Early check in can be requested at 1:00pm for an additional $50.00. Please request this with first payment.

Price includes departure cleaning.

Come help me turn my house into our house. Join "The Parrothead Palace" family!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience being oceanfront, and it was amazing! The house layout was great for our extended family accommodation needs. Plenty of privacy and also plenty of family room to be together! Location on the island was perfect, quick access to everything without being in the middle of all the activity! My in-laws were the ones in contact with the owner, and owners appeared to be very helpful and responsive!

Owner's Response: What a nice surprise! Unfortunately I don't know who to thank. My guests all know I don't ask for a review so it has always been a pleasant surprise, so far, knock on wood, when a 5 star review comes in unsolicited. Made my day!

Family Fun Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at the Parrothead Palace Too celebrating my Mom's 90th birthday. The home was very conducive for ten adults and two children. It was very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. We enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend it to any family!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review Jan! It was a pleasure to have you as guests at The Parrothead Too. Happy Birthday to your Mom and I hope when you get a chance to return to Holden Beach in the future you will think of The Parrothead houses first. Mark

About Mark Hall

I am a former medical sales professional. I left corporate America, December 2007 and have been surviving off of real estate investments ever since. I have owned and still own several vacation properties. If you are ever looking for a couples retreat on Lake Norman in North Carolina, check out "It's Five O'Clock Here" in Mooresville on the lake. VRBO 314127. Come see me on the lake, I'll buy you a drink. My family, not me, also has a 3 bed 3 bath condo down at 773B on Holden if you don't need as much space possibly for a fall getaway with a few friends.

Mark Hall purchased this house in 1992

Why Mark Hall chose Holden Beach

Holden is a great family beach that was voted one of the top 10 family beaches by National Geographic several years ago. It is not an overly commercial area, but is 30 minutes away from Myrtle Beach if you feel the desire to get into the rat race.
