About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath With Stunning Ocean And Marsh Views - Sleeps 8


Saturday to Saturday rental. No partial weeks or Sunday to Sunday rentals.

If you prefer to book online, email me and I will provide you the link.

You will love your stay in this airy and bright beach cottage. Skylights and large windows bring the sunshine in. The interior is cheerful, comfortable and filled with light.

The house is on two levels, the first containing the living area, dining room, kitchen, powder room, two bedrooms, one full bath and a laundry area.

One bedroom is on the back of the house with French doors overlooking the private deck, marsh and Intracoastal waterway. This bedroom is furnished with a queen bed.

The second bedroom on this level is on the front of the house and is perfect for the kids! A pyramid bunk bed set will sleep 4 comfortably. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV.

The living/dining area is cozy and comfortable with beautiful hardwood floors and plenty of room for gathering and eating.

The kitchen is bright, open and spacious with everything you need for your vacation cooking needs.

The second level consists of a loft area perfect for reading or playing games. It has its own deck. The master bedroom is also on the second level. It is a large and comfortable retreat with a queen bed, cable TV and its own bathroom. You will also enjoy the large French doors opening to a private deck overlooking the marsh and Intracoastal waterway.

The decks and porch are furnished with chairs and rockers for your relaxation. The front decks offer an ocean view and always have a lovely breeze. They are also perfect for people watching! The back decks and screened porch are a peaceful and relaxing place to watch the birds and wildlife in the marsh and the boats on the Intracoastal.

Nearby beach access. Saturday to Saturday rental.

Hi speed WiFi is included in your rental as is the check out cleaning. Bed linens are also provided.

Holden Beach is the perfect location for all you want to do on a vacation. Holden Beach itself is quiet and unspoiled and definitely a family beach. The beach is uncrowded, perfect for kite flying, sand castle building (there's a weekly contest!), bocce ball, volleyball or just laying in the sun. Look for turtle nests! When you see trenches being dug, it's almost hatching time. Go to the beach at night to see the 'boil' (turtles hatching). Anyone you see with a Turtle Patrol teeshirt will be happy to give you all the info on the turtle nests. Free concert on Sunday nights at the Holden Beach Pavilion. A small waterslide, several putt-putt courses, bumper boats and other amusements are available on the causeway. You will also find some small shops, a couple of ice cream parlors and fresh North Carolina seafood restaurants.

Within a few minutes drive, you can be a one of many excellent golf courses. If you crave a little excitement after a relaxing day on the beach, Myrtle Beach is only 40 miles away with its nightlife, fabulous outlet shopping and many amusements for the kids.

The southern charm of historic Wilmington, NC is also 40 miles away. You can stroll the quaint streets of downtown Wilmington filled with unique shops and restaurants, or you can visit the USS North Carolina Battleship. You can take a carriage ride or a riverboat tour. Many movies and TV shows are filmed in Wilmington, so you may well recognize some of the locations! 'Revolution' is one of the current ones being filmed there. 'Iron Man 3' wrapped up filming in Wilmington recently. The Nicholas Sparks movie 'Safe Haven' was filmed in Wilmington and Southport. Star sightings are a common occurrence in Wilmington!
New film 'Tammy' with Melissa McCarthy filmed in nearby Shallotte.

The historic North Carolina town of Southport is only a 45 minute drive. Beautiful historic homes and charming shops on the Cape Fear River make for a lovely day of sightseeing. Southport has some wonderful restaurants, too. You can also take a ferry from Southport across the Cape Fear to Fort Fisher, an important Civil War location. Keep your eye out for alligators sunning themselves along the riverbank. Just a few minutes drive from Fort Fisher is the North Carolina Aquarium. If you care to explore, a few miles up the road you can see Kure Beach and Carolina Beach. Or, for a little different experience you can take a ferry from Southport to Bald Head Island. This island can only be reached by ferry or boat and there are no cars allowed on the island. You can walk around the small downtown area or rent a golf cart or bicycle and ride around the whole island and look at the magnificent homes with their amazing ocean views.

A few of our favorite restaurants:

Captain Pete's, Holden Beach - Elegant fresh seafood dishes, mixed drinks and a nice wine selection. Especially lovely at sunset!

Provisions, Holden Beach - seafood and burgers with a stunning view of the boats going up and down the Intracoastal.

Brentwood Restaurant, Little River, SC - perfect for a special occasion. Great French food and a very reasonable Prix Fixe menu including wine!

Sugar Shack, Ocean Isle Beach - Great Jamaican food in a fun and lively atmosphere. Make reservations! The wait can get very long in the summer.

Live Oak Café, Southport - sophisticated Southern cuisine.

Calabash Creamery, Calabash, NC - delectable homemade ice cream with a huge selection of flavors. You can go here after visiting one of the many fantastic seafood restaurants that Calabash is famous for. Make time for a stroll though Callahans of Calabash. It's a gift store, but so much more. You have to see it to believe it!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: We live in the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and relish the time we get to spend at Holden Beach. As we cross that beautiful bridge and get a glimpse of the sparkling Atlantic, our cares slip away. We love Holden Beach so much that we bought two houses there! We spend the summers in one and share the other with other Holden Beach lovers. We are at the beach all summer and available should there be any unresolved problems and would love to hear from you even if there are no problems!

Why Holden Beach, NC, USA:
Up until 10 years ago, we had never been to Holden Beach. We had vacationed at other North Carolina beaches. From the very first day we drove across the bridge, we knew that Holden Beach was the place for us. Our first day there, we put a contract on a house! We didn't get that one, but built our dream house and then decided one was not enough. We looked at dozens of houses before we found 'Moondance' and it was love at first sight. We had a hard time deciding which house to use and which to rent, but eventually decided to use the our first house because it has more room for our kids and grand kids. It was a very difficult decision, though, because we love Moondance so much.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the gorgeous house from the moment we walked in and we knew it had to be ours. It is so bright and open it takes your breath away when you first walk in a get a glimpse of the marsh and the waterway. We hope you will love it, too.
