About the Property

4 Bed, 3.5 Bath, Short walk to the beach, marsh view with a pool.

2 master bedrooms on the main floor with private baths and 2 bedrooms upstairs that share a full bath. Ideal for two families of 5 that vacation together. The two master bedrooms have king size beds. One bedroom up has full-size bunk beds and a twin, the other bedroom up has 2 full beds. We are kid friendly and offer a pack-n-play and bed-rail for the twin bed. There are pillows, blankets, bedspreads and mattress pads on all beds. All rooms have TV, except for the room with Bunk Beds.
Back deck with rocking chairs which overlooks the marsh. We see lots of wildlife, multiple deer, and bobcats have been seen. This side of the island is very quiet, and less traffic/noise.

We are approximately 500 feet from Ocean Blvd West. To the Right is private beach access (has a few stairs) for Sea Gull Drive's residents/tenants with a short walk of 94 feet. To your Left, there is PUBLIC beach access, a short walk of 211 feet (1 step up and down). We do have a cart to help you carry a few of your chairs to the beach.

:::About Holden Beach:::
Holden beach is “named best family beach in the united states by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, also known as “Dr. Beach,” Holden beach offers small-town charm and unspoiled beauty”. It is a family oriented beach and is the perfect place to relax, read, jog, and bike. “navigate a kayak or canoe along the picturesque Intracoastal waterway, and keep watch, for you may glimpse endangered loggerhead sea turtles as they surface for air. In this naturalist’s and wildlife haven, you’re sure to find something to delight your whole family—from spotting dolphins in the surf to playfully chasing ghost crabs with flashlights during an evening stroll. Have lunch on-the-deck at one of the several restaurants that sit beside the inter-coastal waterway. Here, you can watch shrimp boats cruise by as they make their way to and from the ocean.”

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Our family has been coming to Holden Beach for over 35 years.

Why Holden Beach, NC, USA:
We sold our family cottage on Holden Beach after 34 years, and after looking at a few homes built a great new home for our past renters to enjoy and for many new ones to settle in a beach we love for a memorable vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting on the back deck early morning and evening, you will see wild life coming in off the marsh. Many deer, wild birds, and even a bobcat. Minimal road noise at this end of the island. We have a pool for your enjoyment when the ocean has gotten to be too rough.
