Owner #: 704/650-2750 ($71-258/room/night + fees)

Are you looking for your own island escape? Do you long to feel those balmy evening ocean breezes? Needs space for the whole family? If so, why don’t you be one of the first to Experience Southern Charm Beach Style!

Southern Charm is new construction that opened for occupancy in April of 2013. A large beach house rental to fit the whole family. A unique outdoor design underneath the house that integrates the pool, Tiki bar, and under the house, covering you if any weather problems or just want shade. It is one of the largest beachfront rentals on the east coast. A private estate in a gated community, it is located on a twenty-two acre wildlife preserve at the tip of the island. Here, you can converse with nature, watch deer, fox, and rabbits in their natural habitat, all the while enjoying a spectacular three hundred and sixty degree view of the beach and the Shallotte inlet. You can even see as far as Ocean Isle Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway.

The house itself is, for lack of a better word, spectacular. It will sleep up to 50+ guests in one of its 16 large, well-appointed bedrooms. It features two oversized suites along with 5 other bedrooms equipped with king size beds. There are seven bedrooms furnished with both a combination of queen beds as well as queen and single configurations. Let the kids enjoy their midnight pillow fights in one of the two bunk rooms, outfitted with both double and triple bunk beds. One bedroom is also HANDICAP accessible with a handicap bathroom. The house’s 17 bathrooms guarantee that no one ever has to wait before they grab their shower. In addition, the convenient elevator gives those tired knees a rest from all that beach volleyball.

There are two huge living spaces on each floor plus a secondary living room on the first floor. You’ll find yourself spending lots of time in the breathtaking over-sized great room. It boasts windows on three sides of the house that serve to bring the outside in. There’s also a separate movie/game room featuring a large HDTV, game table and foosball table. Speaking of TV’s, you’ll think that you are in Command Central. There are a total of 19 televisions throughout the house. Large TVs are installed in the common areas with smaller sets in each of the bedrooms. Premium cable service is provided by CCTV. If you want to catch a late night flick, choose from a collection of over 30 popular titles to play on the provided DVD players. If you want to surf the internet, or perhaps just catch up on a little late night work, a blazing 30 Mbps of WI-FI access is available.

The upstairs movie/game room has a kitchenette (sink, microwave, drink refrigerator) and is a great hangout for the kids or to hold a breakout session with your church or club members. But when it’s time to really showcase your culinary skills preparing all that freshly caught seafood, you’re going to want to pull out all the stops and put the extra-large kitchen to work. The three refrigerators units keep everything fresh and cool while the 10-burner cooktop, 3 ovens and two microwaves let you try out your latest recipes.

You can bask in the sunshine beside the large private pool, which can be heated when those nights get chilly (extra fee). With the beach having an east/west orientation, you get to see the sunrise and sunset and not loose the sun at the pool in the afternoon. When you’re tired of working on that tan, you can pull your chair over to the covered area on the large pool deck. This will get you out of the sun but still allow you to keep an eye on the kids in the pool. After the sun goes down, it’s time to grab a drink at the Tiki Bar. Or challenge someone to a game of corn hole, shuffle board, basketball, ring toss, etc. This area is well designed for large group gatherings and the presence of two gas grills make food preparation easy for any type of event.

There are two full service laundry rooms equipped with washers and dryers, to make it easy to get all that sand out of your swimsuits, and if you’re worried about having too many on your guest list, there’s parking available for up to 26 cars (there is no on street parking allowed).

Tired of those reverse floor plans with all the walking up and down? Have the common area integrated with the outside/pool area for better outside use and flow. Kitchen and great room on the elevated first floor with deck stairs to pool.

As you sit and relax, watching the sand and surf, from one of the double level decks on each side of the house, you see why Holden Beach has been nationally recognized as one of the premier “Family Beaches in the USA.” You will also make a mental note to return and experience ‘Southern Charm’ as often as you can. Just right for your family vacation, reunion, church retreat or event. All this for less than what a nice hotel would charge on a per room, per night basis! With the 8000 s.f. of space, private pool, and ocean right in front of you thrown in! Whether you need a 13, 14 or 15 bedrooms or more, ‘Southern Charm’ has it all.

For more information you can reach me, Greg, at 704/650-2750. Check us out on Facebook for more information and floor plans. Just Google: Southern Charm Beach House on Facebook

Cant find your dates? I also own: Southern Grace:

Sunday to Sunday rental during prime season (great so you don't hit the typical Saturday rental turnover traffic). Mid week or Saturday check-in okay in the off season. Special rates for Church groups in the Off-Peak season.

Lush landscaping & spectacular views- great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing private getaway space... it can't be called a house because it is huge but with all the amenities of a home. My production company was filming a movie at Holden Beach and this accommodation was perfect for us. The owners are super easy to work with, very helpful in all instances and we took advantage of our downtime by exploring this beautiful setting of beaches and private islands surrounding us on all sides!

Perfect for Large Groups! Great Views & Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for our 40 person Women's Retreat. We had plenty of sleeping rooms, multiple spaces for breakout sessions, and a large kitchen and dining area. In addition, the large deck and pool area was amazing, and never felt crowded. Finally, the location at the end of the beach was terrific. It allowed the ladies to enjoy afternoons of walking through tidal pools and looking for seashells. We enjoyed this house so much, and would definitely rent it again.

We loved our stay at Southern Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Southern Charm was an excellent location for our family reunion. Each bedroom with a private bath--- the room to gather, visit and project old family films and photos---as well as the ample seating for meals facilitated our fun and fellowship. The tiki bar and pool area added to our festivities and it was so nice not to fight the crowds on a beach. We will definitely keep it in mind for future events and recommend it to others.

Best House for a Large Group EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Southern Grace. We have been doing family reunions for over 30 years, and I am the one who books the houses. This is the ONLY house we have returned to over all those years. With an excellent layout, (only 2 floors!), two queens in many of the bedrooms, an incredible bunk room with 6 queen beds, a great handicap room for dad, and lots of shade by the pool, this house is a winner. Owner is easy and prompt on communication, the house is very very well equipped - two years have gone by and still there are the giant frypans, 3 blenders, a working ice machine, 3 fridges, etc etc. Our family loves to cook and this house has it all. We are now 52 and all had a comfortable bed for sleeping! We will return!
