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.

Fantastic home for a fabulous family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Courtside! The home was very spacious and comfortable for the 5 of us with plenty of room to spare. All of the kitchen utensils we needed were available for use and we took full advantage of the expansive counter space and dining table. Plenty of beach chairs available for all and the beach access was wonderfully located just across Ocean Drive. My only suggestion would be to bring a DVD player if you have children that may want to watch movies. Luckily, we also brought our Amazon Firestick along and were able to hook that up for Netflix. But who needs TV when you're on vacation at the beach anyway?!

The house, rooms and physical plant were all adequate. Other things we found lacking.

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. The grandchildren loved it. Things we found to be not quite up to par:

* Nails on the steps and on the porch floor were backing out and need to be reset.

* The west side and the back yard were in-kept and in need of mowing.

* The outdoor shower was nice but needed cleaning. There was trash and a lot of partially used cakes of soap.

* The coffee maker needed to be held closed by a rubber band so that it did not spill out onto the floor.

* Half of the toaster did not work.

* Many of the pots, pans and oven trays had cooked on residue on them. Very hard to clean.

* Never figured out how to use the hand held can opener. The only one in the house.

* Drive from the bridge to the cottage took between ten and fifteen minutes depending on traffic.

These were all minor irritations and we were able to build a bridge and get over them, having a great time with our grandchildren.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that there were things you found lacking on your visit. The coffee pot was in working order with no rubber band needed at the beginning of the season and no one has mentioned that it was a problem. I wish I had known there was a problem during your visit so that we could have had it replaced while you were there. Same with pots and pans, and toaster. I cannot do anything about the 5 mile drive from the bridge but have found the strand to be much bigger the further down the road you travel. We have found the 5 mile drive worth the extra space on the strand. We will also look into the other problems you mentioned. Thank you for bringing them to our attention.

We had a great time on our first trip to Holden Beach. The beach itself was beautiful and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Our house was everything we needed for our stay. Upon arrival, it was clean and kitchen was well stocked with all cooking utensils, plenty of cookware and plates, etc. The bedrooms were cheery and comfortable. Bathrooms were large enough so you didn't feel cramped. Owners have provided everything to make your stay enjoyable...plenty of hooks for towels, extra clothes hangers, all the bedding essentials you need. And it was SO CLEAN! That was a major plus for this mom! A short walk to the beach was great and although we brought our own chairs, they had plenty to use. Our family also loved the tennis court and our four year old grandson discovered he loved tennis! We had a great time. Thank you to the owners for all the extra touches. They were definitely appreciated and we hope to return to enjoy again!

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.
