About the property

Can't beat the locatation or the layout of this house for a family vacation.

This spacious oceanfront home is located on lovely and unspoiled Holden Beach in southern North Carolina. New for the 2017 rental season is a private heated 12 ftX25ft pool on the ocean side of the property.

The house has been recently updated with new paint and decorations in every room that are designed to complement the restful and carefree nature of a vacation at Holden Beach.

Loggerhead Landing is 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath beachfront house with a roomy, fully equipped kitchen/dining area for family meals and large groups. There is a spectacular newly updated living area adjacent to the kitchen-with both the kitchen and the living room featuring panoramic ocean views. The three upstairs bedrooms enjoy the same ocean vista and each opens out onto the upper covered porch. The upstairs bedrooms include a large master bedroom with a king bed and an adjoining bathroom, and two other bedrooms with queen beds one of which has an adjoining bathroom. In addition to the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on the second floor, there is also a large upstairs living area with a TV and a table for playing cards or doing puzzles. Both large downstairs bedrooms have adjoining full baths. One of the bedrooms has a queen bed, the other twins. They are both sizable and airy and have a view of the salt marsh across the road.

The house has two large covered porches on the ocean side. The porches are sprinkled with colorful comfortable rocking chairs to relax in. The pictures show the wide angle view of the beach and oceanscape from the porches. The house faces due south so that the porches provide shade during the heat of the day. There is a large sun exposed porch on the ocean side of the house that is perfect for sunbathing while basking in the sea breeze with a unobstructed ocean view.

The beach is steps from the house so there is no tiring walk for young children before they get to enjoy the fine sand and the ocean waves. The beach itself is typically very uncrowded as the home is located on a narrow section of the island, and there is only one house behind it on the second row. The beach itself is wide, with plenty of room even at high tide.

The new in 2017 pool is situated on the ocean side of the house. The pool itself is large, with an expansive deck that offers shade and sun. The pool will be a hit with the children during the day, and with the adults as the sun goes down.

For 2018 reservations made after 7/4/17 there is a $300 per week for heating the pool, if desired, in the spring and fall.

This house was previously rented through VRBO as Parrothead Palace. It was also known as Island Paradise in the past. We have named it Loggerhead Landing in honor of one of the types of sea turtles that nest every year on Holden Beach. Perhaps you will see a nest with freshly laid eggs one morning when you are walking along the miles long strand at Holden Beach. The pier is about one and a half miles east of the house.

The house has plenty of electronics with a flat screen TV in each bedroom as well two others in the upstairs and downstairs living areas. There are two DVDs, cable TV, and WiFi.

Cleaning and pool heating in season is included in the rental price. Sheets and towels are not included, though they are available for rental through Beach Fun Rental who will deliver them to the house ( 910 842 9600). The house is on pilings and is not wheelchair accessible. Although the house is listed as pet free, our family trains service dogs and the house may have dog dander. It would not be appropriate for families that have a member with dog sensitivity. The house rents Saturday-Saturday with check in time 4 PM and check out time of 10 AM. Early check in can be requested for 1PM for an additional $50.

Why David Kosten chose Southern Coast

We bought this house looking for a family gathering spot for our far flung children. Since we live in Indiana we knew that we would only be able to get away to enjoy the house a few weeks a year.

Our family hates the idea of a beach house sitting unused during prime weeks of the vacation season-so we are continuing to list the home on VRBO. It was previously know as Parrothead Palace and Island Paradise.

What makes this house unique

Once my wife and I had decided that Holden Beach was the ideal beach, we shopped extensively for the ideal home.

We fell in love with this house because it was perfeclty situated with a panoramic ocean view from both the house and the porch. The site also let us install a large pool on the ocean side of the house. The porch is the most important part of any beach house in our opinion and this house has two stories of wide covered porches as well as a large open porches overlooking the ocean and the pool.

The house itself has a layout the takes advantage of the natural beauty of it's location. There is a large kitchen and living area on the lower level that have a panoramic view of the ocean through immense picture windows. Upstairs, the master and two other bedrooms are ocean front and have their separate entrances to the porch. Four of the five bedrooms have an en suite bathroom.

Heaven at Holden

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had at Holden Beach in this beautiful house. The house is only a few yards from the beach which was great. The pool and area were awesome, nice and large. Great for large families. The rooms were great as well as decorated nicely. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this family neighborhood.

Has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been going to the beach together for years, starting when the kids were toddlers. We're now empty-nesters and still going - and Loggerhead Landing was one of our best houses yet! The view from the large deck (the picture doesn't show the new deck) is unbeatable. No rail at eye level to block your view! And three bedrooms upstairs with the ocean view!

The big bonus was the pool! We had one grandchild with us and she spent the majority of her days right where we could see her! And half of it is in the shade for a good part of the day. No sunburn from all those hours in the water. Just wrinkled fingers!

The kitchen is a good size for working and mingling, as well as being well equipped. It has a nice long dining table that fits a big group. The house is tastefully furnished and very comfortable.

There are boogie boards and beach chairs downstairs, so don't feel the need to pack a lot of that stuff. There are also bike rental places that deliver and we took advantage of that, as well.

The owner is extremely easy to work with and easy to contact.

We had a great week and plan on going back to Loggerhead Landing next year!!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at Holden Beach. My kids had so much fun playing in the pool and beach. We would love to stay at this house again. Best part----opening the bedroom windows and hearing the ocean.

wish we were there

  • 5 of 5

had to cancel our plans to stay at Loggerhead Landing in Sept. Owner was so very understanding and offered to hold our fee till we were able to make the trip. As it happened, we found we would have to delay more than a reasonable time, so he offered to refund our $$$. We will definitely try to rebook at a later date! So nice to work with someone who understands that sometimes life gets in the way of our best laid plans! This owner is worth the wait! Wish all our VRBO experiences had been this wonderful.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This home is spacious and clean, with all the kitchen equipment you could need. The rooms are all good size and there are tons of bathrooms. It worked for two families very well. The big dining table was nice and the outside picnic table got tons of use. Wonderful view from the deck! Would definitely recommend this house to others; owner is very easy to work with.

A Week to Remember

  • 5 of 5

This house is just beautiful, with many new improvements; in fact, the entire place looks like a new home inside. The colors are so tranquil, and the furniture is comfortable and of excellent quality. Our family of 3 generations had so much room , and we really enjoyed having a second sitting area on the top floor. The views are hard to describe, from both sides, the beach side and the street side, which has an amazing view of the sunset over the waterway. We loved being just steps away from the beach , and the two porches were great places to sit in the shade after soaking up some sunshine . The ocean breezes were nice for keeping the heat and humidity at bay. Our family came away from this week with many new memories to recall in the years ahead.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $99
Tax Rate 12.75%

The payment terms are $100 at time of booking on line and then your balance of the rental fee can be sent to me by personal check. Please make the check out to Del's Beach House,LLC, and send it to:
Del's Beach House, LLC

Indianapolis, IN 46278.

If the reservation is made more than 30 days from the beginning of your visit, you can elect to send me a check for half the balance at the time you make the reservation and then the balance 30 days prior to your visit.
This year (2016) VRBO has been constantly changing its' fee structure and has added some steep service fees. If you elect to pay for your entire visit through VRBO you will incur a 4 to 9% service charge paid to VRBO and I will pay a 3% credit card fee. Under the current VRBO payment structure I believe that by paying by personal check we will avoid all these unnecessary fees except for those that VRBO levies on the $100 deposit.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
