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.

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.

Exactly what we wanted and needed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We brought our kayaks, bikes and games with the family. The house was perfect. We were right on the water and were able to go out every morning and evening. We were a short walk to the beach and little general store. There are grocery stores in town we ran to for the few thanksgiving items we forgot.The front porch and back porch were beautiful to enjoy the sunrise/sunset with coffee and good company. The area is not touristy, but perfect for families who want to relax by the ocean.

The owners were attentive to any questions we had, responded quickly and did everything they could to make sure our stay was perfect.

I would definitely rent this place again, I can't wait to during the summer so my kids and I can spend days on the beach without having to worry about parking or hauling things long distances!

Great house and location. Owner was terrific

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 2 nights this past weekend for the NC Festival by the Sea. House was very clean and in a good location. Walked to the pier both mornings for coffee and breakfast which was wonderful and very affordable. The owner called us upon arrival to ensure everything was to our satisfaction and followed up upon our departure. Great owner to rent from. The property is right on a canal which would be great if you had a boat and wanted easy access to the ICW. Holden is a great beach town that is very family oriented and low key.
