About the property

This house sleeps 10 & a dog and has a dock for a boat.

FIRST: Please check for up-to-the-minute AVAILABILITY DATES by clicking on the "CALENDAR" button directly below the Big Picture of our house. Then go to the right of the Big Picture and enter the dates you are interested in, click on the "DETAILED PRICE" link below the yellow "BOOK IT" button to get correct quotes on your desired dates. If you would like to, you may secure your dates and rates by clicking the yellow 'BOOK IT' button.

This comfortable home has 4.5 bedrooms; three (3)very large bedrooms with queen beds, one (1) bedroom on the ground level with twin beds -perfectly located for extra privacy, loud teens or loud snorers!, and a cute (.5) bedroom nook with custom bunks on the main living area for the younger kids. There is an extra roll-a-way-single in the master BR also on the main living area. There is a deck outside of each upstairs bedroom and a large rear deck off of the OPEN STYLE indoor living area. There are two full baths and a private, refreshing outside shower. Linens and towels can be rented from; they deliver and pick up.

We have a boat dock on a deep water canal that has access to the Intracoastal waterway. We are a close walk to the beach (284 yards) and the public pier (add 50 feet). Our place is designed to give you the whole Holden Beach experience.

As you approach Holden Beach Bridge, you will notice a shopping center with Food Lion grocery, Walgreens, Subway, Dominos pizza and other convenient stores. A little furthur, you will see Banks, Resturants, Arcades, Coffee Shops, Boat Rentals, Beach-wear stores, Hardware Stores and many other stores catering to you the vacationer. Anything else you need is in Shallotte...just 10 miles away. At the base of the bridge on the Island (a block to the left), you can find restaurants/bars and beach equipment rental stores .

At the base of the bridge turn right. As you drive toward Something Fun, you will notice to your left, (just as you turn on to Burlington Street), the Holden Beach Pier, public beach access, and the pier restaurant. They are an easy walk... about 284 yards from Something Fun. Just past the pier is a conveniece store, ice cream shop and boutique.

Now that you know where everything is and you have your stuff put away: RELAX! You are on the Island! No crowds, flashing lights or lots of traffic. Grab your preferred beverage, sit out on the rear deck and be amazed at the tides changing 5 +/- feet every 6 -/+ hours. Or maybe you want to enjoy your daily jog on the beach or the sidewalk or both.

We have items for our customers to have SOMETHING FUN to do: bikes, surfboard, kites, fishing poles, games, etc. (It is an honor program; if you break it - fix it; if you want to leave something for other guest thats, fine; Just don't take anything you didn't bring, please.) I fix the bikes before the prime season. Sometimes, someone will brake a bike or get a flat and not fix it. I am sorry, but there is nothing I can do about that other than totally remove these convenience items. So there is no guarantee on their usefulness.

If you are an adventurer, there are many places to visit and do fun things. There are plenty of golf courses in Brunswick County and Myrtle Beach , historical sites, including Old Brunswick, Southport, Wilmington, Fort Fisher (by road or ferry) and even Charleston S.C. (120 miles)!!!.

Our rentals run from Saturday to Saturday, particularly during June, July and August. If you want shorter periods during these months, it must start on or end on a Saturday. Our pricing structure encourages the full week rental during this period. We rent the home, so our rates don't change whether you have 2 or the maximum of 8 adults and 3 children. We DO NOT allow House Parties or rent to people under age 24.

About David Sharpe

We have owned a beach house on Holden Beach since 1994.

David Sharpe purchased this house in 2005

Why David Sharpe chose Southern Coast

Our first was on the Ocean. We wanted to be able to have access to the beach and the Intracostal Waterway. We use our boat to go to the local On-the-water-restaurants on Holden Beach, Ocean Isle, Long Beach, and Southport. We don't have any less access to the beach.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location, the dock was perfect for our 24ft boat and easy access to the waterway. It was a short walk to pier/cafe/beach. Great food at the nearby Mermaid Island Grill. The house had plenty of room and all worked fine. The appearance inside was is "lived in" condition, owner said he was planning to paint soon. Communication with the home owner was perfect, he responded quickly with our questions and addressed our issues.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your support. It is nice to hear that our customers had a good time and good experience. We did repaint inside ( some touch up) but still have a little more to do on the outside - which is a never ending battle with the beach environment.

The house smelled like cat piss.

The house needs some attention. It may have been closed all winter but it smelt horrible.

Wonderful week at Something Fun

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay - lots of room. The kitchen was very nice. Bedrooms were large compared to other places I've stayed. Nice quiet location and only a short walk to the beach. I hope we will be able to stay there again.

Charming Cottage Style Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved 'Something Fun"! We had a wonderful time at Holden Beach and really enjoyed the late night crabbing from the back dock on the canal. Breakfast on the deck with the beautiful views, kayaking down to canals. The home is so close to beach access, the country store and more importantly, the ice cream shop! 'Something Fun' was cozy and comfortable! Our family had one of the best vacations we've taken and look forward to coming back next Summer. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. It is really nice when our customers take the time out of their busy schedule to pass on good news about staying at "Something Fum", particularly the location- because that is probably the single most asked question..

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

The house had a beachy feel and fit our family perfectly. The kids enjoyed fishing off the back dock and the adults enjoyed sitting on the decks relaxing!

Short walk to the beach, the market and ice cream! Lots of great local restaurants!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equipped for a week at the beach! The garage on the ground floor is really useful, to keep sandy stuff, heavy stuff, bikes, wagons, etc. The open floor plan on the main floor was a great gathering place and we cooked dinner here every evening. Everyone found their bed to be comfortable, including the downstairs room with the two twins. Children slept in the little sleeping nook, which is very cute. The nook is right beside the front door, but is removed enough from the main area that we didn't have to be too quiet. Everything at the house worked very well (fridges, AC, cable, WIFI). Great views and great location being close (1 block) to the general store to re-up your coolers with ice or drinks. Short walk to the beach, and we loved sitting out on the back deck. Plenty of room to park 4 cars. Holden Beach is a wonderful laid back beach where you can really get away from it all. Everyone had the greatest time and we would definitely book this house again! I spoke with the owner once about making my payment sometime before the trip and he was very accommodating and very nice. Did not have to speak with the property manager since we didn't have any issues while we were there.
