Deckadence: Great Views, Great House!

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,600 sq ft
Property type house


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Holden Beach was recently selected as one of the top beaches in the US, especially for families. Leave commercial beaches behind and submerse yourself in total relaxation. You'll cross the bridge to our beautiful island and feel like you're leaving the country.

Our home, 'Deckadence,' is located 2 miles from the bridge on the west side of the island. It's one of the largest 2nd row homes on the island. We treat it like a home away from home and hope you'll treat it the same way.

We leave cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, condiments and spices in stock. Our only request is if you finish it, replace it. Our hope is when you stay at our home, you'll treat it as your own, as we do!

Keywords: 4 bedroom home on Holden Beach. Private beach access. 2nd row home with ocean view and unobstructed view of salt marsh.

About The Owner

My wife and I are both journalists in the Raleigh, NC area. Our co-owners are good friends of ours who we met 9 years ago. We have 7 young children total (they're winning 4-3!) and really love spending time at Holden Beach, even if it's for a quick weekend.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Holden Beach

We bought the house with some good friends of ours who we met during birthing class for our first children. We now have 3, the Reeves family just had their fourth. After visiting several beach communities all along the NC coast, we had no question where we wanted to take our families once we visited Holden Beach. We're sure you'll feel the same.

What makes this house unique

The best thing to say about Deckadence is it feels like a real home, not a pastel-filled beach house with small bedrooms where it feels like everyone is living on top of one another. All 3 downstairs bedrooms have deck access. Upstairs bedroom has beautiful views of the salt marsh. There's nothing like waking up, seeing and hearing the ocean in front and walking out back with a cup of coffee to watch the wildlife or the boats moving along the Intracoastal Waterway. We find the home so welcoming, the family is excited about leaving the beach to relax inside.

Outdoor hot/cold shower. Home on double lot with nice grass front yard for children. 2 level back deck faces salt marsh for magical nights and mornings. No homes behind us and the Intracoastal Waterway. Great place for families since there are only two rows of homes, so the beach is never crowded and easy to keep track of little ones! One of the largest 2nd row homes on the island that doesn't feel or look like a normal beach house. Bedrooms are all spacious, so there's no cramped feeling. Upper level has great views of the ocean and salt marsh from the dining room or kitchen table. We have a number of repeat renters who know once you stay at Deckadence, you'll want to come back every year.

Great Stay - too much fun

  • 5 of 5

Remarkably close to the Ocean. The beach was deserted most of the time where we had it all to ourselves. The house fit all 8 of us very comfortably with room to spare. The owner was very responsive to our needs and helped us navigate to a perfect stay as we were not from that area and had some special needs. Would definitely stay here again.

Good property, good location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! The location is excellent with good access to a real nice section of the beach. Tvs in all main areas and some bed rooms. Kitchen stocked well. Excellent third floor open area. The property overall was in good shape with a few exceptions. The third floor air conditioning was not working to capacity. And at one of the sinks in the master bedroom, the hot water runs very slowly and the drain on the same sink drains very slowly.

Overall ... super week!

The best House Evvver!

  • 5 of 5

Not at all what expected. But Better. The pictures do NOT do this home justice. I really couldn’t tell by the pics what we were getting into, but as soon as we arrived and walked in, me and my husband were astounded by the views and the beds were very comfy along with the couch , the bathrooms were also awesome with a jetted tub in the master that was relaxing as well :) We would for sure stay here again..We had a rainy Saturday stay but the house was so awesome we didn’t even mind.. Very clean & beautiful .. go ahead and Book, I promise you won’t regret it !!

We had a lovely time at Deckadence. The house is very roomy and extremely well appointed for a rental. There is beach access just across the street. Owner was very responsive when we needed help getting in. Highly recommended!
