Welcome to Changes In Latitude, our well-appointed and family friendly inverted floor plan 4bd/3.5ba oceanfront home. The recurring theme in the guestbook comments for Changes In Latitude seems to be: "the house had everything we needed and more!".

Changes in Latitude is located just steps from the island's grocery, beachfront ice cream shop and fishing pier/pier restaurant. Amenities include : big screen HDTV with apple TV, books, video games, board games, charcoal grill, outdoor shower (hot and cold water), beach toys, boogie boards, a beach umbrella and beach chairs.

For families with babies and small children, Changes In Latitude is also equipped with a Pack N Play, high chair, changing table and baby gate. There is something for every family member, younger and older!

Uniquely furnished bedrooms each offer a ceiling fan and TV. The "flex" room can function as a fifth bedroom (full-size sofa bed) or a second den. The "flex" room also has a separate HDTV and a Playstation 2 with games. Outside, four covered porches with rocking and lounge chairs allow you to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and views of Holden Beach or the island interior. Directly off of the rear porch, an in-ground saltwater pool (5' deep) with surrounding deck awaits your group. Right beyond the pool is your private dune walkway to beautiful Holden Beach, where we hope you will make fantastic vacation memories!!

***********PLEASE NOTE************** Sometimes partial weeks are available, but normally the partial needs to encompass a rental week (Saturday to Saturday); very seldom can i have a partial week reservation start on a Friday.

About Debbie

Having grown up in San Diego, Ca, I was amazed when i moved to the east coast how warm the water was during the summer and fall! While i miss San Diego still, (left in 1975) I have learned to enjoy the east coast ocean water temperatures! Holden is quiet and peaceful.

Debbie purchased this house in 2003

Why Debbie chose Southern Coast

Holden Beach is a quiet family beach. If you have a rainy day or want a day away from the beach, Wilmington NC is 45 minutes north and Myrtle Beach is 45 minutes south. Lots to do for everyone.

What makes this house unique

We purchased 2 lots that were once part of an island miniature golf course, oceanfront, prior to Hurricane Fran. We love our spot, not such a long drive off and on the island. We love being close to the pier, island grocery & island ice cream shop (ocean front). Short walk over the dune to beach from the house, private walkway!

Holden is a turtle sanctuary and has an active turtle patrol. They give talks once/ week for the vacationers during the summer, and every year they watch for the turtle hatchings and help protect and count them.

Wonderful and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Changes in Latitude! We loved it the first time as well as this trip! The house is spacious, comfortable and has so many things that we didn't have to bring pack. The pool was a great addition to the property!!

It was my first time using Vrbo. Great experience!

Communication with Debbie and Kim was wonderful and pleasant!😊

Very comfortable and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice four bedroom home on the ocean with immediate beach access. Also, a private pool.

The home is located near the island convenience store and ice cream store.

Multiple balconies with ocean and canal views.

The home is very comfortable with all of the necessities, including kitchen appliances, outdoor grill, washer and dryer.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating.

Highly recommended.

Best ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Changes was amazing and by far the best house we ever rented at Holden Beach. The house is beautifully decorated as well as comfortable . The kitchen is amazing , well equipped with everything labeled and I do believe I could make Christmas dinner there! There is a beautiful view from all rooms and beds very comfortable! The pool was an added asset and where we spent most of the days and evenings. Debbie was so accommodating to work with as well as Kim who called us on our way home to tell us a guest forgot his eye drops and should she mail them... That's something you don't hear anymore!! We will definitely be back and rent this house again!

One week isn't enough!!

Car: necessary

Holden Beach is a sea turtle sanctuary. Turtle Talk is held every week during the summer for those interested. Sightings of turtle hatchings happen in the summer with the local 'Turtle Patrol' counting nests and hatchings, and protecting the nests. Holden Beach is located in a golf course rich area!
