About the property

Great Ocean Views, Elevator, Separate Game Room, Extra-large Swimming Pool

Built in 2013, this wonderful house design was created for families and friends to spend quality time together. The living areas (kitchen, eating area, and family room) are placed on the top floor to allow for the best ocean views of Holden Beach, NC.

Beach Access – Walk across the street from Shore to Delight onto its own boardwalk to the Atlantic ocean with private beach access. It is as close to the front door as you can get. See, smell and savor the sound of the waves from this wonderful 2nd row beach house!

House Access - A spacious elevator makes accessing this beach house a breeze for both the young and the young at heart. Both floors are wheelchair and stroller accessible with extra wide hallways and bathrooms for easy movement. Two showers are made for the elderly to have easy access with a low step-in feature while bathtubs make bathing the kids a snap.

TV's - Have no trouble gathering your loved ones for movie night around the large 50-inch HDTV in the family room complete with blue-ray DVD player. For more viewing pleasures, 32' flat-screen TVs are installed in every bedroom. In addition, the master bedroom has an extra large TV mounted to the wall for those lazy days relaxing in bed.

Game room – Shore to Delight is equipped with a full sized game room on the lower floor to allow the kids to be themselves at night without disturbing the adults. Foosball, air hockey, and a queen size sleeper sofa are 'Shore to Delight' all with ready-made togetherness and family fun.

Pool – You will be “Shore to Delight” in the fact that during your stay, you will be able to enjoy taking in the sun at both the beach and in your own private extra-large pool measuring 25’ x 14’. The pool's cleanliness is guaranteed upon your arrival and for the duration of your stay, as it will be inspected twice during your full week’s stay.

Kitchen - This well-equipped kitchen is high-end in every way, boasting granite countertops, a spacious cooking area, and all stainless steel appliances. While we encourage you to visit many of Holden Beach’s fantastic restaurants, Shore to Delight’s kitchen will allow you to be able to cook for your entire crew while enjoying expansive ocean views.

Clean – Cleanliness is our highest priority. The house is thoroughly cleaned before your arrival and every room is personally inspected by a trained inspector, whose only job is to make sure that the house is perfect for you and your family. In addition, every bed is fully protected with a sealed mattress protector of the highest quality ensuring you will have a good night's sleep.

This five bedroom, plus a game room, open floor plan is ideal for spending time together. We care about you and your family and want to ensure our customers are happy with their vacation and the time they spend at Shore to Delight on Holden Beach. We want you to have a wonderful time and look forward to coming back year after year.

About Shelly

We have grown children and I love getting all my kids back together in one house. Holden Beach is the perfect place to get reacquainted with one another. We talk at night and we play on the beach together all day. We think that our home is the perfect beach house.

Our new home is called 'Shore To Delight' and it still has the brand new house smell. Everything is so upscale and modern. The game room is perfect for the kids with plenty of room for extra large families or lots of friends. Perfect!

Shelly purchased this house in 2013

Why Shelly chose Southern Coast

We chose to build this home on Holden Beach because we have vacationed in this area for many years and simply love it! Having a large family ourselves, we have the experience to know what the perfect beach house could be and for my whole life I had dreamed of building one. Now we have and we invite you and your family to experience it with us.

What makes this house unique

Close to the beach with awesome ocean views! Covered decks for when you want to relax in the shade. Open decks for when you want to sun yourself. We bought an extra large lot that allowed room to put in an extra large pool. Perfect beach access was a key feature for me as well to ensure my family and I could get to the water with ease. The spacious elevator allows all of us to move around as if we were young again. Granite counter tops and a fully equipped kitchen were important so that everyone would enjoy eating at home and spending quality time together.

Overall nice place

  • 4 of 5

On the positive side, the house is nice and is located right across the street from the private beach access. We had 5 adults and 6 kids on our trip and there was plenty of room to spread out. Some constructive criticism... The pool area is okay. The pool itself is a good size, but the surrounding deck etc is just average. The charcoal grill and the area surrounding was a mess. 3 of the TV remotes didn't have batteries that worked, and those TVs also had the settings messed up so we had to spend some time getting those working. Not a major deal, but it would be nice to just turn the TVs on and they work. We also really look forward to having music around the pool area, so we specifically look for houses that offer that. We were disappointed to get there this year and find out that amenity had been removed.

Shore to Delight does delight

  • 5 of 5

We went on a family vacation with 10 people in June. The house was beautiful. We were so pleased when we looked around. There was plenty of room with 4 full baths and 5-6 bedrooms, if you count the game room. The views were great. There was no problem being on the second row of houses-we could see the water over the top of the house in front of us. Having the elevator to move our stuff in and out was a huge bonus. It was nice to have the pool when we didn't feel like going to the beach. Plenty of kitchen items-pots, pans, utensils, cups, plates. We cooked about half the time and ate out about half. The only negative thing we have to say is there was construction going on right next door that started at 7 am! The owners tried to make some calls to see if the construction people could start later but the only thing that kept them away was 2 days of rain. Other than that our vacation was fantastic and we would definitely stay here again (but we would try to make sure there was no construction!)

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was beautiful, it was right across from the beach with our own private walkway. Everything was clean and ready for us early too. The only issue we had was the alarm went off accidentally while we were in the house. The realty company contacted the owner and took care of it right away. The kids had fun playing the pool. It was a much needed vacation.

Quick New Year Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Three families converged for 3 nights upon this wonderful property for the New Year holiday. The beach was quiet and beautiful. The kids enjoyed the foosball and air hockey tables - especially nice to have a room where they could convene. Home was clean and kitchen was well-stocked with the essentials. Great ocean views from the top floor. Owner was responsive and local rental company made check-in/out easy.

AWESOME Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Shore to Delight is exactly that - an absolutely awesome house! There was so much space (and we were full to capacity including two folks in wheelchairs) and never felt cramped. We had a minor issue with the elevator (totally our fault - we didn't read the directions) and the owner was very quick to respond and sent a repairman on a Sunday to fix the issue. We definitely appreciated the thoroughness and availability of the owners - other houses we've stayed in have had issues and we received no response, so it was nice to have someone who cared about our stay! The pool is glorious with plenty of floats. The beach is extremely close, with a flat, public access a short distance away (in case you are renting a beach wheelchair and need an access point with no steps). We would recommend Mermaid's for lunch and dinner - they had the BEST food! It is good to note that the stairwell is very wide (so you need an extra large baby gate), there are no towels provided (so bring them or rent them) and all of the bathrooms are directly connected to a bedroom (only one - on the floor with the kitchen - has access from the hallway). The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals and had enough flatware that we didn't have to fight over forks. I would highly recommend this house - it is the best we have stayed in!!

May beach trip

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house! Would definitely rent again! Everything is like new. Big kitchen, comfortable living room. Great pool. Terrific wooden decks on 2nd and 3rd floors with great views. Nice paved parking area under house. Biggest problem was that towels were not included in linens. (This would not have been a big problem if we had been aware of this beforehand and could have brought our own towels.) Owner was very responsive to any issues we had.

Holden Beach, North Carolina is the perfect spot for a family getaway. With peaceful beaches, this small island town on the Atlantic coast has tons of fun things to do! With eight miles of sandy beaches, Holden Beach is a great place to swim, suntan or read a good book. Once on the beach, you can build sandcastles, collect seashells, go for a stroll along the waterside or jog for miles on the pure white sand. Holden Beach is one of the few beaches in the world that you can see both a sunset and a sunrise over water. Shore To Delight is positioned perfectly on the island and you are right at the beach.
