Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


Beautiful, two-level, luxury, duplex home located on quiet street at "The Family Beach." Perfect for one, two, or three couples, small families.

Fantastic views from five decks. Backs up to marshland, Intercoastal Waterway - watch the boats go by from the multi-level back decks. Half block from beach with semi-private access (no public access there means less crowd)- undeveloped lots in front provide for great ocean views and sounds. See the ocean and listen to the waves crash as you relax on either of the two front decks. All decks are furnished, recently painted/stained and lower decks and patio provide shade if desired.

Recently renovated with fresh paint, carpet, and furniture inside. Light colors and picture windows on three of four walls give great bright and open feel, very sunny. We recently updated the Master bedroom with new twin mattresses that convert to a King if desired. Families seem to appreciate the flexibility.

On the right day you will see one of the most beautiful sunsets imaginable off of our back decks.

Updated, Florida Villa style decorations. Comfortable furnishings, breakfast bar, vaulted ceilings, well equipped kitchen are a few living features. Dining and breakfast bar seats seven for meals.

Three TVs (36 inch big screen in living room, wall-mounted flat screen 20 inch in master, 19 inch in guest), DVD, VCR, home theatre, cd player and digital cable provide in-house entertainment options. Puzzles, games and movies are available for rainy days and relaxing out of the sun.

Large backyard, barbecue/picnic area. Paved cement patio, driveway and under-house (on pilings) parking for multiple vehicles/boat. An outdoor shower and changing area are available for cleaning up the family after the beach.

Full weeks only during summer. Nightly rentals available (minimum stay) in offseason or last-minute during high-season if vacant, please feel free to email, we are very busy but will get back to you.

Holden has a variety of restaurant options, boutique shopping and world class golf within a few miles. It is very unique in that there are numerous entertainment, dining, recreation and shopping optons on one side of the "big bridge", while the island itself across the bridge is mainly houses, quiet and peaceful. It is the quiet getaway many are looking for, with the conveniences to make it enjoyable right there as well.

Boat, jet-ski rentals available at HB Marina. Fishing and crabbing areas readily available.

We love our "home away from home" and think you will too. We have traveled all over the world and find Holden to be the best beach anywhere for a relaxing, quiet, courteous coastal vacation.

Please see renter feedback/comments and contact us with any concerns. We are very easy to work with and understand that this non-traditional rental situation (directly from owner) is new to some, we are confident you will be pleased with the experience.

Additional photos available upon request.

Enjoy, Eric and Jamie.

We had a wonderful time at Holden Beach! The house was perfect for us and everyone was very comfortable. It was very close to the beach so it was a very easy walk. The kitchen is well stocked and has pretty much everything you need if you want to stay in and cook. Eric is great to work with and will address any concerns immediately. We can't wait to return!

Thanks for letting us use your home Eric!!

  • 4 of 5

Even though the weather was not cooperative we still enjoyed our week. Eric, the owner, was so wonderful to work with. Anything we needed he responded in a very timely manner. We usually stay beachfront but due to booking so late and with just two of us we decided to stay back off the beach. It wasn't my first choice but all in all the place had what we needed. Very quiet street and close to beach access.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our 2 kids. The condo is spacious and comfy. The views from all of the decks are amazing. At night, it's so quiet and relaxing. You can sit on the top deck, hear nothing but the ocean and see a sky full of stars. We loved the outside shower after a long day at the beach. The beach itself is a short walk and private at that. The owners are awesome! Very responsive and accommodating. The condo has everything you need. I would recommend a beach buggy if you're taking a lot to the beach. Also if you have bikes, bring them, there is so many places to ride. Would stay again for sure.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $55
Damage Deposit $250

We ask for a separate security deposit check in the amount of $250. We do not cash these checks, just hold them until a damage check is done upon departure. We either return or destroy them upon successful check-out.

We have been very lucky, have never had any damage beyond normal wear and tear, and have never taken anyone's deposit monies in 11 years of self-renting.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
