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.

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 Holden Beach

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.

Lovely home with amazing ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do little to show the true beauty of Seasthemoment...this house is so tastefully decorated, comfortable and roomy. The views of the ocean are next to none and the decks are furnished with wonderful wooden rockers that we utilized daily. Also, having the additional sitting area with the 3 upstairs bedrooms is a brilliant idea! The beds were comfortable, loved the large kitchen and the dining room table was large enough to accommodate everyone. I highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone looking for a 'step above' home rental.

We love the location and amenities of this home, but

  • 3 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in this home. Outstanding location and layout for a large crowd. Nancy was good to work with and was very kind regarding access to the home. However, both families that rented the home agree that we won't be staying here again. To pay this much for a home and not have linens included is frustrating. Also, the beds, particularly the master upstairs and bunks are not comfortable. Two of the bunk beds did not have mattresses, but pads and might be okay for toddlers, but not for teenagers or adults. We had to replace the shower curtain liners on the first day there because they were covered in mold. My husband also had to repair the latch on the gate. Multiple of the dining chairs were rickety and did not feel stable. I love this house, the fact that it is dog friendly, and the amenities, but it just seems like the house and some of the furniture is in decline and not kept up quite like you expect for the cost.

Great time with family

  • 4 of 5

Great oceanfront property and time with family, above all else. It's an older property and needs some updating but we knew that before arriving. We had a few minor issues with the internet but the owners responses and said they wouls get it fixed. The up stairs queen bed is terribly uncomfortable. Other than that, no complaints.

Loved the house as well as the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 adults and 6 children from 19 months to 9 yrs old. Our entire week was fabulous even though we had periods of rain every day. The kitchen is well equipped which we appreciate as we eat every meal but one at the house. Our children have already expressed the desire to return to this house next year - we were all impressed and ended our week this morning with our nearly 3 yr old granddaughter crying because she didn’t want to go home.

Great layout for a multi-generational family gathering with a den upstairs and down.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful slow paced beach. Large porch for relaxing and watching the dolphin and pelican. Great walking beach. We never found it crowded. Very family oriented.
