Welcome to Second Base at Holden Beach.

This beautiful home in the dunes of Holden Beach, North Carolina is a great escape from the hectic world. The home has incredible views and lots of rockers and chaise lounges from which to enjoy them.

Inside, this comfortable home has plenty of space for everyone with three HD TVs and two DVD players; there is also a stereo system in the living room. The home has an extensive library so there is plenty of reading material for all the "beach readers"in your family. Wireless internet is provided at the home.

The downstairs is enclosed with two parking areas on either end and a play area with a ping pong table for the kids... great for rainy days at the beach. There are two bikes for those who need to exercise while they are at the beach.

Located on the east (short) end of Holden Beach at 154 Carolina Avenue, Second Base gives you easy access on and off the island. Second Base is within walking distance of Mermaid's Grill, Captain Pete's and Castaways!

A great home at a great family beach; come here when you need to get-away from it all!

About Vicki Lassiter

We first visited Holden Beach about 1989 when our children were very little and we fell in love with this quiet family beach community. We continued to come to Holden at least once year and in 2000 took the plunge and purchased our piece of "beach heaven".

Vicki Lassiter purchased this house in 2000

Why Vicki Lassiter chose Southern Coast

We love Holden Beach because it is the one place where we get away from the hectic pace of daily life and work. This is where we really relax and recharge our batteries before we go back to the real world.

What makes this house unique

We love sitting on the back porch rocking an afternoon away while watching the ocean waves roll in. The house is an easy walk to the beach so it is very convenient to go down to the beach a couple of times a day and we love late summer afternoons on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are loosing count of how many years we have made it to "Second Base." Here we have fond memories of old friends and good times with new friends. Once again the boys took part in Olympic ping-pong, we swam in the rain, and said goodbye to the summer at Holden! We got to Provisions and had a great weekend.

Thank you again for opening your house to a bunch of over-worked educators!

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house was very clean with new flooring and comfortable beds. The kids enjoyed the ping pong table in the garage. The house was a short easy walk to the beach and the ice cream shop near the bridge.

Great House and Hospitable Owners

  • 5 of 5

This home has a wonderful layout and is great for families. The floor plan is spacious. The kitchen included all the amenities, including aluminum foil and basic spices, which was always forget to travel. We used the sunroom/game room as a bedroom for 3 little boys; and gave the twin bedroom to the little girl traveling with us. We had a couple of cloudy/rainy days and the kids loved the downstairs area for ping pong. It was close enough to the beach that we walked over about twice per day, and also close enough to the Italian Ice store that we walked there too. The Owner was available to answer all questions and made us feel very welcome.

Over Three Months At Second Base

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Second Base from January 4th until April 13th...2014. What a wonderful "over" three months we had at Holden Beach. We wanted to escape the winter weather where we live and chose to stay at Second Base. When we arrived the home was more than we was very clean and had every amenity we needed. We especially enjoyed the sunroom as an area to get away and read or enjoy the large tv and watch movies. Many mornings we sat out on the back deck and watched the ocean and we also enjoyed the hammock on the sunny warm afternoons. The outside shower was a favorite! The layout of the home was had what we needed and the bedrooms were comfortable. We enjoyed having the washer and dryer in the master bedroom closet area....made it very convenient. There was plenty of outside furniture and having the bikes was great. The owners were absolutely wonderful to deal with....they made sure we were comfortable and everything was to our satisfaction. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone that wants a quiet, relaxing vacation at Holden Beach. AND, we hope to visit Second Base again.......Thank You......:)

Great Vacation and House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to spend some time at Holden Beach at Second Base this summer. We were extremely pleased with the home and highly recommend it. The home was clean and tidy and offered a relaxed and comfy environment to spend time with the family. I loved the outdoor shower after a long day at the beach. The public access to the beach was a few minutes walk away and the public dock for fishing and crabbing in the Intercoastal was also a very short walk away. The owners were great to deal with as well. I hope we have the opportunity for many more trips to Holden and Second Base!

This is a great house for the week. We have 2 kids and it was perfect with lots of books to read. It is solid in the basics that it offers. Very easy walk to the beach with 2 little kids and toys. We really enjoyed our time here!
