About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Holden Beach has long been one of the best kept secrets of the Carolina coast. This pristine, family friendly beach has none of the crowds and commercialism of nearby Myrtle Beach, yet offers easy access to its amusements, shopping, and golf. The sand is silky, the waves are perfect for boogie-boarding yet gentle enough for children. The unique east-west orientation of the beach lets you enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the deck of this comfortable home. You can even bring your four-legged family members to this sunny retreat!

Charming oceanfront beach home provides the perfect family vacation. Two separate living areas allow room for everyone to spread out and relax while providing extra sleeping accommodations, premimum cable with HBO and WIFI. The open and spacious living areas, well-equipped kitchen and dining room (with large dining table) give you fabulous ocean views. You will appreciate the tasteful furnishings, hardwood floors, and beautiful views.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a king-sized bed, TV, and attached full bath. The second bedroom features double bunk beds, providing sleeping for 4. A third upstairs room contains a queen and twin bed, with an attached full bathroom. Walk-out from 3 upper bedrooms onto a shaded deck with an inviting hammock and expansive views of the beach. The den has armchairs and a trundle bed with 2 twin beds, as well as a flat screen HDTV with a DVD player, a game table and a library of books.

The 2 first floor bedrooms each have one queen and one king sized

bed, and attached full bath. These rooms open onto a deck with a view of the salt marsh.

The spacious oceanfront lower deck is perfect for sunning and relaxing in the rocking chairs. There is a rinse-off shower on the walkway which is perfect for cleaning your pet after the beach. There is also an enclosed shower with hot and cold water.

We know that your pets are family too! Bringing them with you saves money and worry. We are pleased to offer them accommodations too. We appreciate your cooperation in treating our home like your own, so that we may continue to keep our house pet-friendly. We request that you rinse and dry your pets after the beach, and do not allow them on the furniture, regardless of your custom at home. All droppings must be removed from the yard. There is a non-refundable fee of $175 for up to 2 pets. If you have pets other than cats or dogs, or have more than 2 pets, please contact the owner for arrangements.

We look forward to hosting you on your Holden Beach vacation! Fell free to contact us with any questions.

About Nancy Phillips

Our family has been coming to Holden Beach from Atlanta every summer for many years. It's the perfect antidote to the heat and humidity of the city. Our girls have grown up on the beach!

Nancy Phillips purchased this house in 2004

Why Nancy Phillips chose Southern Coast

We rented for several years at Myrtle Beach before growing tired of the crowds, traffic and commercialism. Someone suggested Holden Beach, and we have never looked back. We rented here as well for a few years before taking the plunge and purchasing. After renting for so long, we knew what we wanted to provide to other renters - comfortable beds and seating, lots of space to be together or have alone time, a big table for large family dinners, and a kitchen with everything needed to prepare them!

What makes this house unique

Holden Beach is unique in so many ways. The beach stretches east to west, so you can enjoy the sunset and sunrise. Looking straight out, you see nothing but sky and ocean. It is not unusual to see dolphins swimming by. The hottest days are made pleasurable by the constant breeze. The water is clean, the sand silky, and the waves are perfect for boogie boarding while being gentle enough for children to play in. The fish markets offer seafood so fresh you will never want to buy it anywhere else. Our home's location makes it convenient to everything that you need.

Spacious and comfortable oceanfront property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Seas the Moment. The property is spacious, comfortable and very convenient if you vacation with your dogs -- there are plenty of nice places to walk (not only right on the beach, but along the nearby streets) and the gated deck in back allows you to relax outdoors and enjoy the ocean breezes with your pooch. We were very pleased with the property and will stay here again when we return to Holden Beach.

Great stay! This is our third year and the best so far. We have six children ages 2-17, and eight adults. The layout is great as is the location.

Great family friendly house

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 teenagers and 2 adult couples stay in Seas the Moment. The open floor plan downstairs and the large kitchen and dining room were perfect for us. (Wonderful large dining room table!) Master bed/bathroom upstairs (with TV and large walk in closet) was a nice big room. Perfect with its access to the upstairs ocean view deck. Three boys stayed in bunk bed room and the queen/twin room upstairs and shared the bathroom. My daughter was downstairs in a queen bed room with its own bathroom and we were in the other king bed room downstairs with its own full bath. I thought the 2 downstairs bedrooms were going to have to share a bath so I was pleasantly surprised. Thought everyone would've had to use our downstairs bathroom, but again, I was pleasantly surprised that there was also a tiny powder bath off the kitchen. The second den area upstairs was perfect for the teenagers to use to watch TV/feel like they had their own space. We had 2 small dogs with us who loved the deck out front with its gate, and the grassy yard under the house was fantastic for their bathroom breaks. We grilled many nights on the charcoal grill. We loved the short walkway to the beach, appreciated the full outdoor shower, nice landscaping, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable furnishings, a/c worked great, hardwood floors, and lots of rocking chairs on the shaded part of the front porch. All week the breeze was from the ocean (so no bugs!) and we had basically a private beach out directly in front of our house (no public beach access areas near us). Would definitely stay here again.

The house was bigger and nicer than the pictures displayed and had plenty of space for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We looooved this house and property on the beach! We had 10 adults, 3 small dogs and a baby and the house had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The table was large enough for that we could all come back together for dinner and eat together too! We loved the two covet d pitches and he additional porch that received sun (not shown in pictures). The kitchen was the main well equipped we've ever seen in a vacation home! Holden beach was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for because it was quiet, family friendly and not crowded.

The owner Nancy was vey helpful in answering any questions we had. 😊

Terrific house, well equipped and comfortable. Holden Beach a GREAT family beach with lots to do.

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Moment is likely the best beach house we have stayed in. . .and we go somewhere almost every year. With six adults and four children, 9, 7, 5 and 3, the house made us all comfortable and at home. The facility was well equipped and the furniture updated. Mattresses and pillows were delightful. Nearby grocery and drug stores are handy. Several good restaurants in Holden Beach and even more in Shallotte (10 miles). Whatever Holden does not have, Shallotte does! We particularly enjoyed the slower pace and calm atmosphere of a true family beach. I can't comment on how house problems were addressed beyond there was a phone number to call. We had no problems! It was a privilege and a pleasure to rent this beautiful house. We may go back to Seas The Moment next year or skip a year, but I am confident we will return. It got 10 out of 10 votes from my bunch! Thank you , Nancy!
