About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Enjoy a COMPLETELY renovated OCEANFRONT luxury duplex with amazing 270 degree south-facing views for all day sun on the beach! This family-friendly and immaculate home boasts an open main level with living/dining space, a renovated kitchen, and main level queen bedroom. This versatile floor plan includes a 2nd floor with master suite (queen) with oceanfront views and two additional well-appointed bedrooms (king, full/twin). Other features include designer décor, new furniture in every room, and shining hardwood floors throughout,. The kitchen features granite countertops, tile backsplash, brand new appliances, and is well stocked with every gadget and utensil needed to prepare large meals or accommodate take-out from the many restaurants on the island.

Sit on the covered deck and watch the sun rise and set over the sparkling water. The house is positioned closer to the dunes and ocean than the neighboring houses for unobstructed views up and down the island. Watch the kids play on the beach from the deck or the many ocean-view windows in the house.

Enjoy an evening walk on the beach to multiple restaurants on the island serving fresh seafood, steaks and refreshing island drinks. Have dessert at the local ice cream shop before heading back for a relaxing night listing to the ocean surf.

Holden Beach is a quiet, family-friendly beach recognized as a top beach by USA Today and a top-10 beach by National Geographic Traveler’s Magazine. There are no hotels or high-rise complexes, just family owned cottages. Holden Beach is part of the barrier island chain in southeastern NC and is also located approximately 35 miles from Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC -- making trips for shopping, eating and entertaining very convenient. Holden Beach is also well-situated for 30 area golf courses.

We love our “home away from home,” and our family has spent many years enjoying all that Holden has to offer. We would love for you to choose to spend your vacation time at our property. Renting directly from the owner may be new to you (through VRBO), but we enjoy helping our renters plan the perfect vacation and that will exceed your expectations.

Mandatory Exit-Cleaning Fee is additional. Linens are not included (linens can be rented from Beach Fun Rentals, located on the island).

ALREADY BOOKED? If this listing is already booked during your preferred stay, please visit our other listing on VRBO (#404109) to check for additional availability.

Rent BOTH SIDES of the duplex for 8 bedrooms and 6 baths that can accommodate large families while offering the privacy of separate spaces. Email us to inquire about renting both sides.

About The Owner

We are two couples that have vacationed many summers at Holden Beach and fell in love with the charming, non-commercial laid-back environment.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Southern Coast

Holden Beach truly is the best of both worlds -- a quiet family beach without commercial distraction AND close enough to Myrtle Beach and Wilmington to provide quick excursions

Perfect Perfect Perfect

This house exceeded our expectations- from the moment we came over the awesome bridge, our family knew we found a great place. The whole area was just really charming... but the house.... AWESOME. The view of the ocean with all the windows allows you to enjoy why you came in the first place. The kitchen and living room was light filled and just really comfortable. It was decorated in a way that made you feel like you're home, instead of at a rental with "after- thought" furnishings. We had plenty of silverware and plates for our group of 9 and even a couple extra large pots for our low country boil. The front porch offered a covered front row seat while we watched our kids play in the sand... so fun! The sea shells were diverse and plentiful. Really, nothing negative to say. FOR SURE booking again in the future! So thankful for this new found gem of a vacation home :)

(Oh...LOVED going down the street to the ice cream shop and enjoying the sweet treat at the ice cream bar! Great place to take the kids)

Beautiful oceanfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great relaxing time. Loved sitting on the porch watching the waves and so relaxing. Kids loved playing in the ocean and beach was not crowded and great family vacation. Great local restaurants as well. Would definitely go back.

One of the Best Locations in the Area

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay over Easter weekend and hope to go back. The house was perfect for us, our four year old, our toddler, and a family friend. The size and layout was ideal for our party but could easily accommodate another couple. The decor is lovely and all the furniture is very comfortable, so it's easy to relax. Even though it's a duplex and we did see the family on the other side from time to time, there's still plenty of privacy and we were never bothered by any noise.

The location is fantastic and the best of any of the other oceanfront houses we've stayed at in the area. It's RIGHT next to the beach so it's super easy to go back and forth to the house without having to haul stuff down a long path or walkway. The view is great and you can easily hear the waves throughout the house with the windows open, which isn't always the case for houses back further from the dunes. It's also very close to the bridge, so you can walk to restaurants and shops and quickly run errands on the mainland instead of having to drive the length of the island.

I'm not sure if it's a regular thing, but a huge bonus and one of the highlights of our visit was a local company setting up enormous kites just down the beach from us that we could enjoy from the deck and even a couple of the upstairs bedrooms. We also loved that the beach directly behind the house had tons and tons of shells, so we spent a lot of time collecting. I assume we were there on a fairly busy holiday weekend but, despite that, that stretch of beach was lively in the afternoons but never seemed like it would ever feel crowded, even in peak season.

We all want to go back soon!

Ideal Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

I have dreamed of taking my two kids to the NC coast for years. I grew up on these beaches and wanted to share their special beauty with them. This Holden Beach home was simply perfect for us . . . lovely, upscale décor, prime location, great porch for sunrises/sunsets, beautiful well-maintained beach with direct access and absolutely spot on communications with Elizabeth, the owner. We could not have asked for more. Holden Beach is quiet and probably best suited for families (rather than singles). So, when we return, and we will (even with the trip from Texas, it is completely worth it!), we will bring extended family and still have plenty of room. thank you Mills Family for the best vacation we have had in a long time!

Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We experienced a fantastic vacation at this lovely beach home. Our daughter is expecting twins in September, so we all wanted to experience a family trip with our 4 year old grandson, while our daughter could still travel. This would give him a chance to get a little more attention before his world changes forever. The home and it's easy access to the beach was perfect! We will be returning!!

beatiful home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a ladies weekend (3 nights). There was 7 of us, it was very comfortable and well stocked kitchen wise. The Home is clean and nicely decorated. Very close to the water/beach. We went on a non seasonal weekend so we had the beach almost to ourselves. The owners are very nice and responded back quickly to any questions we had. The town is very slow paced and had a very relaxed feel. Although there is not a ton to do in town it's not a far drive to get where there is stuff to do. We had a great time and would definitely rent this house again.
