Overview

About the property

This Charming Canal Cottage is Just a Short Walk to the Beach!

Located on one of Holden Beaches beautiful deep water canals is this cozy cottage especially suited for the fisherman at heart. It is within walking distance of the Holden Beach Pier, where the fishing is good all year long. Surf fishing is enjoyed by many during the evening hours on the beautiful beach!

This home features a floating dock so bring your boat or kayak. Access to the Intercoastal waterway and the Atlantic Ocean is quick and easy. Fish the backwaters for trout, drum, flounder, redfish or hit the big waters for bigger game fish. Enjoy having your own boat docked on your private floating dock for a week of fun on the water! A must "do" is take your boat over to the famous Provision Company for dinner while enjoying waterway cruising.

Children and adults alike love fishing and crabbing from the floating dock. Not to mention grilling out while relaxing to the ocean breezes and the sounds of crashing waves.

Located just a short ride across the bridge are numerous specialty stores, Putt-Putt, Water-Park, Shops and plenty of awesome restaurants.

Holden Beach is located within 40 miles of both Wilmington and Myrtle Beach.

Great boat access and huge deck

  • 5 of 5

this place was a great house for a guys fishing trip. the house was clean, accommodating and a great location. the floating dock in the canal was ideal for our boat and the rear deck is huge and a great place to relax at the end of the day. all the bedrooms had a comfortable mattress and were roomy. this is a classic beach house, not luxurious but fairly updated and comfortable. the owner was very responsive and made the stay hassle-free.

Good location, but needs some attention.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location of this house. Right on the canal and a short walk to the pier and beach. For a beach house, it was ok and the price was good compared to others, but needs some attention! House was clean and I liked the lay out. Could definitely use some new furniture in the living room as the two couches there were ripped and not comfortable at all. I could not even sit on them and watch tv. It looked like the house has not been updated in quite some time. Beds were ok but I would not want to sleep on them for a week. ok for a short stay. Never could get the wifi password provided to work so I ended up using a guest access wifi that I picked up. Worked in and out. Ramp going the the canal is not safe! The rod holding it is severely bent and looks to go at any moment. We did not trust it to hold us so it was a bummer to not be able to walk out on the dock. Could not get the key to the basement to work, so had to go into town to do some laundry. Finally realized it only worked on the back door and not the front. Could have saved us a lot of time if we had known that upfront. I realize it is not as pricey as some of the other homes on the island, but still was a lot of money for us. I will pay more and get a more updated house in the future.

Needs work

  • 3 of 5

Nice enough place but is in need of repair to railings/decking and could stand an upgrade inside. Instructions should say need towels AND sheets; unfortunately I took "linens" to mean sheets so had to go purchase towels. But I had a place to sleep and take a bath so all is well.

We loved it.

It was conveniently located. Short stroll to water/beaches. Loved the private dock. Close to Mertle Beach. Nice size for our family. Wonderful little community, all the businesses were nice. Great get away for fishing trips, or just relaxing. Thanks!!

We liked the location. The house needs some attention. I wouldn't rent it again until I checked it out.

The home was as described, simple and ok.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 days at this home and it was a good trip. The location is fantastic, with the canal on the back and just a walk across the street to the beach. we took our kayak's with us and had a great time in the canals and the intercostal waterway. the A/C worked good and the porches were great to sit on and relax. it would have been nice to have the washer and dryer working. But all in all it was a good weekend.
