About Kathy Nomides

Owners are from PA but currently reside in Wilmington, NC.

Kathy Nomides purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathy Nomides chose Southern Coast

We love the beach, and when we were looking to buy our own beach retreat this beach was the best we found.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this unique house because of the great views from anywhere in the house. We love sitting on any one of the many decks and just watching... the ocean, the pelicans, the deer, etc. etc.

Great, comfortable place in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast. The house is beautiful and the pin ball machine was just the icing on the cake. Holden Beach, even during peak season, wasn't to busy and the water was warm. Would stay again many times over.

Fantastic house with spectacular views

The house was beautiful with spectacular views. Mrs. Kathy was a fantastic person who helped along the way. It was a short simple walk to the beach. Would recommend this house to anyone.

A Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Charlie's Place exceeded my expectations. We had views of the ocean in nearly every room. The house was spacious and airy. I literally felt like I was home and not in a rental. The kitchen was stocked with enough cookware to make a nice Thanksgiving dinner for me and my husband. The bed was comfortable and I loved hearing the surf as I fell asleep. Each bedroom has it's own balcony, which was really nice for sunset watching. One night we saw dolphins playing in the ocean as the sun sunk in the horizon. The pinball machine was a cool bonus, we had a ball with that. This home is located just a short walk to the beach, which was nice. I can't wait to come back.

Location is Great, Beds are comfortable, Beach is Outstanding!!!! Home needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

Loved the home and the Location was GREAT even though it needs TLC, exterior needs painting, it had lots of wasp nests in the overhead deck rafters, main floor shower was out of order because the hot and cold water knob was missing. The shower knob had been missing for some time and when reported they acted like they did not know anything about it. How can you thoroughly clean a home and not realize the shower knob is gone?? The upstairs shower had grout mold and needed to be cloroxed. The owners are just not being very professional with the cleaning and maintainace. The home provided all bed linens, blankets and pillows (very comfortable) when the owners said only the bed sheets and pillows were provided. Not fun having to pack blankets and comforters and when you arrive only the find that the bulky blankets and comforters you brought was not needed at all. Needed more comfortable seating in the living room for a party of 10 during movie time where another futon (very comfortable) would have servered two purposes for we had to buy a air mattress for the home didn't accommodate our sleeping arrangments. The home was not stocked with tissue paper or trash bags, for it only had the partial rolls on the despenser and the trash bag that was already in the can. Not very Professional. I will say Miss Kathy was easy to contact for I did several times but it would have been nice when I contacted her for a different reason and told her about the shower knob that was missing it would have been nice if they would have came to fix it, but they didn't go the extra mile to fix the problem. Whats funny is it would not take much work and TLC and just being Professional to have made the Home and our stay a Five Star recommendation. The Location and the Beach is out of this world.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that this guest was not 100% satisfied which is always our goal. I do know that the shower knob was in place and the shower was working perfectly in the morning before the guest arrived. We did offer to come to correct the problem, but were told it wasn't necessary. I also do not understand why they felt they needed to bring blankets. The guest was told that linens were provided; they asked about pillows for the futon and were told that yes we had plenty of pillows. While we do try to make sure that all of our guests have enough paper goods to get started, our contract clearly states that these are the responsibility of the guest. Again we are sorry for any miscommunication. We love Charlie's Place and are always doing our best to ensure that our guests have a wonderful time at the beach.

Charlie's Place is clearly loved.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family vacation at the beach. Our 18 month old grandson had a ball at the beach with a nap in between castle building/ swimming. The outdoor shower was a definite plus. We did grill in the backyard, but had a bit of competition with flies. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. We found everyone at Holden Beach to be very friendly. We are making plans for our next visit!
