Car: Recommended

Holden Beach has been voted one of the best family beaches in the US. There is not much to do on the island except enjoy the beach and ocean. There are more complete amusement activities available 45 minutes away in Myrtle Beach or the seaport of Wilmington and Southport, NC. And the town of Shallotte 12 miles away has more restaurants, movie theaters, food stores (Walmart Superstore, Food Lion, Lowes Foods), shopping. Good Mexican food at San Felipe in front of the Home Depot. A new playground is located behind the water tower for those who might want to take a break from the main playground - the beach.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1997

About: This home is the primary residence of Ken, a retired engineer and Holly, an artist. Her work can be found at For fun we like to take long walks on the beach, sail, cycle, fish, and travel. We have two grown daughters. We are honest, responsible people, respectful of others homes and property, and expect the same of others. We rent to families only.

Why Holden Beach, NC, USA:
Our cottage is one of the few with unobstructed views of both the marsh and the ocean. Holden Beach is a nine mile long barrier island in Brunswick County, NC. It has been voted one of America's best family beaches. It is one of the few south-facing beaches on the east coast. Warm water, good swimming, clean sand. Other than a fishing pier and a few restaurants there are few distractions from a quiet relaxing time at the beach. Other attractions such as museums, aquariums, fun parks, historic homes and ports, the battleship North Carolina are within 45 to 60 minute drive of the cottage. Food Lion grocery store and Walgreen pharmacy are 5 minutes drive just over the bridge. Bikes, jet skis, umbrellas, kayaks, beach chairs, sheets and linen, and baby stuff are available for rent from local vendors. Fresh local seafood is abundant. HB is also a good place for cycling enthusiasts. The boulevard can provide a 15 mile ride round trip.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our house is one of the least expensive rental dwellings on Holden Beach but has all modern amenities. The cottage is just over 45 years old but is clean, well-kept, nicely landscaped, and has a new kitchen with granite counter tops. A remodeled outdoor shower with hot and cold water provides a wonderful place to start or end the day on a fresh note.
