About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Located on the marsh, just a short walk to the ocean, 'Just Coastin'' is a unique property -- really a home and a half! There is a main house with a separate, but attached 'guest house' or annex. If you have some people with you who tend to run on either an earlier or later schedule than everyone else, this is the place for you! The guest house has a downstairs living area with television and DVD player and full bath. There is an upstairs loft with a queen bed and sitting area. The view from this bed is amazing!

The main house has four bedrooms -- two master bedrooms with queen beds and huge bathrooms with large showers. The two additional bedrooms have twin beds. One twin room has the beds built in, resembling those aboard a ship! The twin rooms share a large bath with a tub/shower.

Downstairs there is a separate television room with a large sectional couch. There is a pull out full-size bed for additional sleeping -- but, there are no linens provided for this bed. There are pocket doors to this room which helps keep the television/movie sounds contained. There is another large living area with matching leather sofas flanking a gas fireplace. Behind the sofas, there is an additional seating area with chairs for reading. The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an electric cooktop. The cupboards are well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans and additional cookware, baking dishes etc. There are two half baths downstairs. Off the main living area, there is a lovely screened porch.

The entire back side of the home has a large deck which has six rocking chairs along with an additional table for meals outside. This is where your crowd will congregate. Those seeking shade will find it here, but can still feel part of whatever is going on poolside while rocking away. Upstairs, the two master bedrooms have balconies which overlook the pool area and marsh and have adirondack chairs.

The backyard pool is the highlight of the house. The largest private pool on the island, it is forty feet long and eight feet deep at the deep end. You and your guests can enjoy playing pool games, getting in a real swim or just floating! Lounge chairs and tables surround the pool. If it gets too hot, there is a shade structure and additional shade available under the deck. A gas grill is provided to help you create those memorable beach week meals.

There is an outside shower with hot and cold water underneath the house. Additionally, there is a large guest closet which can hold your chairs, umbrellas, bicycles and other toys. Inside the closet you will also find a charcoal grille available for your use. There are places here for everyone and everything you can think of!

Just Coastin' is located in Pointe West, a private subdivision on the western end of the island. Pointe West amenities include a private walkway to the beach. The beach is wide and sandy and never gets crowded! There is also a neighborhood dock with a fishing platform for you to enjoy.

If you have any questions about our property, please feel free to call me. I can be reached at 919-881-0202 or 919-602-3250. When you are staying here at the beach, our property is managed by Gail Shipman of Beach Butler. Gail runs a full service business. She can provide you with bath towels and beach towels and extra sheets, a set-up and take -down cabana service on the beach, airport pick-up and drop-off, golf shuttles, grocery delivery, help with loading and unloading your vehicles and more! You can call her at 910-473-2322 to book any of her offerings.

About Ann Wyker

We are the parents of four young adult children and all of us love going to Holden Beach to rest, relax and play.

Ann Wyker purchased this house in 2010

Why Ann Wyker chose Holden Beach

Holden Beach has been the location of our family reunion for over 20 years. In 2010 we finally decided to find a permanent place to call home when we are able to visit.

Holden Beach is a quiet, unspoiled place with wide sandy shores and uncrowded beaches. Here you and your family can set up a tent or umbrella, place your chairs and towels, coolers and picnic items and spend hour after hour chatting, reading, sleeping, shelling, swimming or just enjoying nature. There are so few people sharing the beach at our private access point, you will be able to spend your vacation time with the people you love, not strangers who also happen to have chosen the same week to vacation.

If you have golfers in your midst, there are many courses available to play. My husband and sons love to get up very early and hit the links before it gets too hot and also allow their day to include some beach or pool time in the afternoon.

Myrtle Beach and Wilmington are each about 40 minutes away. Each provides lots of shopping opportunities and access to an enormous number of additional golf courses. There is abundant nightlife there also -- something that is not readily available at Holden.

What makes this house unique

As much as we love whiling away the hours listening to the waves, there are some days when the beach is not as hospitable as one would like. When the wind off the water kicks the sand onto you and your towels or when the air is just a bit too chilly or the flies are out, these are the days when you really understand the advantage of the home off the oceanfront and by the marsh. This home has the prettiest pool and pool area around. There are no homes that overlook the back of the property, so you and your guests can enjoy the pool and marsh view in complete and total privacy. Away from the wind, you can stay warm and protected. If it's too hot, there is shade under the deck and you can always just jump in the water! This home also has a beautiful screened porch with exceptionally comfortable furniture. You may start to read your book there and end up taking a nap! All of this area overlooks the marsh where there is a constant nature show taking place. Keep your eyes out for the island's deer population.

If fishing is your thing, you can go out to the neighborhood dock and fish (be sure you have the appropriate license!) You can put your kayak or canoe in the water and paddle about also. There really is always something to do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Ann: We all enjoyed your wonderful home -- it is a very special place. It has everything. It gave me the time with my girls and their families that we all so need. It's a wonderful place to get to enjoy the wonders of your grandchildren. To see the joy in their faces as the week passed is priceless. I only hope it inspires them to come to the beach in their lives as it has always been a special place to me and my wife. Now that we are all here together, we take a moment to reflect and realize what a true blessing family is. Thank you Ann. Your home has inspired me to do what ever it takes to get back to the coast. I hope to come back soon.

Absolutely the most beautiful view in Holden Beach! Pool is amazing. Proximity to beach is great!

  • 5 of 5

The house is spectacular! Very well equipped kitchen, better than my own home!! It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We were 10 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant and we never felt crowded. The pool area is amazing. The kids spent more time there than at the beach! The views are spectacular from the awesome decks. We totally enjoyed every square inch of this amazing property!

Just Coastin - Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

Ann & Bob we had an amazing time at your home in Holden Beach. It was perfect for our family. We spent the week with our two daughters, their husbands, their children and my sister. To spend an entire week with our grandchildren was awesome. Your home has spectacular views, awesome swimming pool, which our two oldest grandsons Trip 2 & Parker 2-1/2 thoroughly enjoyed. You couldn't get them out. The two little ones - 11 month old Olivia and 7 month old Declan loved the pool as well. Parker and Trip loved sleeping in the "boat" twin was priceless to hear them talk and giggle when we put them to bed. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need to prepare meals. The highchair, booster seats and pack n play came in quite handy too! The deck and screened in porch facing the marsh was great for relaxing and watching the deer as they moved about...and of course having drinks and appetizers before dinner. It was an amazing vacation and we thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. A vacation we will always remember.

Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Holden Beach for over 30 years for a family reunion and have finally found the perfect rental for our immediate family. This is our second year working with Ann and couldn't be happier - already reseved for next year. My grandchildren cannot wait to get back to "our" beach house because they are so comfortable and have so much fun in the pool. The kitchen is the best equipped we have ever worked in and the guest house for the grandparents is a wonderful option. The instant response from Ann's property manager is one of our favorite features. We used to say that we would only stay oceanfront, but one year at Just Coastin' and we are converts to the marsh view and peaceful setting.

Weekend fun

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful with everything our family needed. Fully equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds for a good nights rest. The views of the marsh were breath taking. With a short walk we could be at the beach and the covenience of the nature walk and pier allowed us to experience any water sport we chose. We hope to be able to visit again.

Amazing house

  • 4 of 5

The views are amazing throughout the house and especially from the beautiful pool. The beach is a very easy/close walk (even with ALL of our beach equipment!) and the beach is a wide beautiful beach . The owner, Ann, was extremely accommodating and a great host. We loved our stay at Just Coastin' and would return again.

Perfection at it's best

  • 5 of 5

Life gets busy and we forget how to relax, not so with this vacation home. The minute you walk into this home you feel priviliged to be able to share it with the owners. The first morning you wake up you head for the back deck to witness the deer having their morning romp and the many species of birds, and oh yes, the quiet peaceful setting. We have to make ourselves go to the beach one day at least but it is a struggle to pull ourselves away from the pool. Our first year there the pool cleaner told us the pool was the nicest one on the Island. I have stayed in a lot of houses at Holden so I can attest to that. The kitchen is so well stocked you can fix any meal you desire. Again, we had to make ourselves go out to dinner one night, it is so fantastic to eat out on the deck in the evening. The house flows so well you never feel like you don't have enough space. My two sons, their wives, and two granchildren will not let my husband and I even consider renting a different house, they love this one so much. 2013 will be our third year and hope to have many more in this beautiful home. Owners, thank you for sharing it.
