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.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have owned a beach house on Holden Beach since 1994.

Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach, NC, USA:
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.
