Property description

The Sandcastle is the perfect way to spend your vacation with family or friends.

Our home was created with a large group in mind from the seven-foot, black walnut, Lazy Susan dining table (that we had to bring in by sea :) ) to the five large bedrooms, all with private baths and their own TV. We even have a large recreation room on the ground floor that has two queen-size sleeper sofas and a locker room style bathroom/shower.

We are one of the few screened-in porches on the island and you will fall instantly in love with rocking in the chairs while taking in the breathtaking views of the ocean that have made Holden Beach one of the most popular family beaches around.

We know how much we love having our furry friends with us on our vacation so we want you to have yours, too. Our home is pet-friendly and they love lounging around on the back porch, too.

We have stocked our home to help you forget about the busy life and fall in love with kicking off your shoes and getting back in touch with fun and relaxation. Our recreation area has a large HD Flat Screen TV, Foosball, Ping-Pong, a card table and games while we also have four beach cruiser bikes for you to explore the island. Boogie boards and sand toys are here for the kids (ok, the adults too) and we even have a library of family friendly DVDs for the movie watchers. We love our beach house and we think you will too. For larger families or groups, consider renting our additional oceanfront property 'Tern Inn' (VRBO # 443639) next door.

Manager info

About: Our family has been coming to Holden for years. We tent camped in the 50's and were hooked. Now our kids are all grown (our oldest son and his family are pictured above) with children of their own and we are blessed to be able to enjoy the our kids and grand kids! We hope you will enjoy your stay and that Holden Beach will become your favorite place like it is ours. Our daughter-in-law, Debbie manages the beach house. She is in the yellow sweater in the picture. She and my son, Don, will work hard to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Thanks for considering us for your vacation.

Why Holden Beach, NC, USA:
We have a wonderful Golden Retriever mix and wouldn't think of heading to the beach without her. We want you to be able to bring your pet too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has one of the few screened-in porches on the Island. When the weather chases us off the beach, the rockers and view make the day a success and the recreation room gets the children away from our listening to the ocean waves.
