About Zoe Cagle

Our family has loved this house for over 20 years. We have always vacationed at Holden Beach and consider it our home away from home. We have developed precious family memories on the strand of beautiful Holden Beach. We hope you will love it here as much as we do- and you will consider Courtside your home away from home.

What makes this house unique

Having the only private tennis court on the island and super easy beach access, Courtside is the perfect place for all families who want to enjoy the strand and have options for other activities.

Imagine a vigorous morning set of tennis to start the day or a family 'round robin' to end the perfect vacation day.

The screened in front porch is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine as you watch the sunset. You can also cheer on your favorite tennis player from the front porch.

The beach access is so close that it is easy to trek back in for lunch, refill the cooler, or enjoy a set of tennis. Holden Beach is such a safe place that you can leave your chairs right there on the beach throughout the day.

Courtside is located on the western end of the island where the strand is the longest. There is always plenty of room for you and your family to spread out your towels and chairs and soak up some Holden Beach rays.

Cozy Home, great for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We found everything we needed in the home. We cooked breakfast and dinner and had everything we needed. With only one living area, our kids and their friends spent time with us and we enjoyed watching them have a great time. The beach is across the street, the house had chairs and boogie boards so we were all set. The owners answered any questions we had, easy to work with and it was nice to rent from an owner instead of an agency. Would highly recommend this home!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in NC for a family funeral and staying at this lovely place was very comforting. The kids loved "playing" tennis and we loved the screened porch! The owners are very responsive and helpful and they even left us a sand bucket full of goodies! Thanks so much.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year at Courtside and we all enjoyed it even more than the first year. The first thing we all love and appreciate, as we are toting our belongings and little ones, is the close beach entry. We also love how clean Courtside always is. Our family has always felt very comfortable during our stay. The tennis court is also a big plus! We enjoyed many nights playing tennis and teaching our young boys how to play. It is also nice and quiet there and we were able to take our kids for some nice walks on the sidewalk and on the beach. The owners of the home are very easy to reach if you need anything and they are very helpful. We are all looking forward to our visit next year! :)

Wonderful Cottage and Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Holden Beach and the stay at CourtSide was perfect! Zoe and her sister have a wonderful property that is literally steps from the private beach access. The private tennis court is wonderful and we used it everyday. The house is wonderful for a great place to relax and as a home base to the beach area.

I came down with my son and several of his friends - in all there were eight of us in the house and i never felt cramped. Really nice living room, kitchen and dining area downstairs with a full bath down stairs and three bedrooms upstairs with a huge bathroom. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need. out back is a great grill and picnic table. the front porch is a great place to relax - i especially appreciated that the entire porch is screened in so that you can comfortably sit out there and never be worried about bugs! Really nice quite street. I loved running on the sidewalks each evening.

Zoe and her sister are great hosts and took wonderful care of us. i really couldn't ask for anything more from them, the house or the beach - we had a fantastic time.

Great family getaway only 152 steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Holden Beach. The beach house is adorable and well furnished and stocked with everything you need. We had 4 adults and 4 children and the space was perfect. The owner communicated promptly to any needs we had and all the reviews are spot on.


Kitchen- well equipped with plenty of dishes, pans, serving bowls, etc. You can cook and actually eat a nice dinner using colorful dishware. There are even plenty of ice trays (no automatic ice maker) to keep drinks cold.

Living area- dining room table seats 6. We were able to pull up additional seats and squeeze us all in. The living room has comfy cute furniture and cable tv.

screened in front porch- nice area to relax in the morning or evening with 4 rocking chairs.

bedrooms- 2 rooms have queen beds, 1 downstairs and one upstairs. Both have a flat screen TV with cable. Nice place for the adults to unwind and watch a little TV before bed. There are 2 rooms with 2 twin beds in each also upstairs. Every room has ceiling fans, comforters, pillows, and extra blankets in the closets. You just need to bring your own sheets.

bathrooms- there are 2 bathrooms. One is downstairs with a washer and dryer sharing the same space. It is across from the downstairs bedroom. The upstairs bathroom has two doors. One main door and the other connecting to the queen bed room.

Other amenities- there is a covered parking area, an outdoor shower, picnic table and BBQ in the back. The owner had beach toys such as boogie boards and beach chairs out for our use. There were tennis rackets and other sand toys.

location- second row from the beach. Across the street and one house over is the entrance to walk to the beach.

beach- nice sand, clean, and the water was warm. Shells could be found everywhere. We made cute wind chimes as decorative gifts for our family. I found out the last day that we could've rented canopies for $20 a day. A company sets up and takes down daily. That would've been worth it.

Location- only a 30-45 minute drive to Myrtle Beach. You could visit Myrtle Beach and then retreat back to peaceful Holden Beach.

Was uncomfortable about sending money/payments, but everything was legitimate. The owner actually sent me a bathing suit left in a drawer. I highly recommend this house. Great location and price.

Porch sitting was a joy

  • 4 of 5

The week spent at Courtside was very nice. The porch was the place for morning coffee and evening beverages. We had a party of 7 with 2 grandmas down to a 2 year old and everyone enjoyed the visit. The teenagers played on the tennis court every day. The walk to the beach was easy. Just don't count on a rolling beach cart as there are stairs. You can get to a ramp beach access a few blocks down the street. The only issue I noticed was the stairs were needing some repairs in front (the owner was going to address this).
