About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)
With the beach only 150 yards away, you can enjoy the best of both worlds, easy beach access and a place to dock your boat, even at low tide! You can take a dip off the dock at high tide! Watch the dolphins play and pelicans dive for their dinner!
The pier is within easy walking distance. You can fish or just get an ice cream cone and walk out and see what others are catching. The concrete sidewalks that line Ocean Boulevard make walking and jogging safe. Beach chair and umbrella rentals are available on the island as are kayaking and other water sports.
A quaint and charming island paradise, without crowds or flashing lights, Holden Beach is a beach lover's dream! Collect shells and shark's teeth as you stroll along the shore. Build sand castles, read, swim, nap, and ride the waves. We’ve even seen sea turtles hatching! Experience a vacation that is tranquil and unhurried; relax, reflect and rediscover yourself and your family!
With famous Myrtle Beach, SC only 35 minutes away, you can relax on the island all day and play in the big city all night! The new highway makes the trip traffic-free. Take in one of the many live shows (House of Blues, Legends, Alabama Theater, Carolina Opry, Medieval Times, and The Dixie Stampede) or dance the night away at one of Broadway at the Beach’s nightclubs.
Find some terrific bargains at the Tanger Outlets, where you can shop at Old Navy, Tommy Hilfiger, Gap, Liz Claiborne, and many, many other famous brand outlet stores. Putt-putt at the most amazing putt-putt courses you have ever seen! There is also an IMAX at Broadway at the Beach. And did we mention the waterparks?
For the golfers, there are many courses to choose from within easy driving distance. The moderate climate of the area makes golf all year long comfortable!
If you are looking for great dining, Calabash, “The Seafood Capitol of the World” is only 20 minutes away. You can eat at one of many fancy restaurants or wait in the line that wraps around the local favorite, the Seafood Hut, where the fresh seafood is fabulous without frills. Don't worry, it moves fast! Don’t miss visiting Callahan’s enormous gift shop, where you can find the perfect souvenir, or anything else! At nearby Sunset Beach, you can watch the floating drawbridge move to let the boats pass while enjoying fine dining at Twin Lakes where the hushpuppies are divine!
Or you can stay at home and cook your own meals in our fully equipped kitchen or grill out in the backyard!
Only ten minutes away, the town of Shallotte offers great restaurants without the crowds and a brand new movie theater! There is also a Walmart, CVS, Belks, Bath & Bodyworks, and other shops.
Just minutes up the road from Shallotte you’ll find the historic town of Southport where you can stroll the shady, oak lined streets and shop for unique gifts and antiques. Take a day trip on the ferry from Southport to Bald Head Island where you can rent a golf cart (no cars allowed on the island) and tour the island. Or, take the ferry to Fort Fisher and visit the Civil War Museum or the Fort Fisher Aquarium. Pack a picnic lunch, feed the birds, and search for starfish among the mossy rocks.
Historic Wilmington, NC is 38 miles away. With a colorful past, including lots of pirates, this is a fun city to tour, on foot or by carriage! Visit the battleship while you are there! Lots of neat shops at Chandlers Wharf!
Charleston, SC is a approximately 120 miles away, but well worth the drive! You can tour the city in a horse drawn carriage, play in the fountain at the waterfront park,

About the owner: My wife Kathryn is originally from Smithfield, NC, and I am from Wilson, NC. We really enjoy spending time at the Beach and with family. We have a four-year old son, Spence and our one year old son, Austin. Don't let me forget our Boston Terrier, Holden (named for the beach, of course). I am employed in the Medical Equipment Industry and my wife is a Mortgage Loan Officer.
Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach, NC, USA:
My wife's family has always come to Holden Beach, and we were really excited about the prospect of owning our own home on a canal and very close to the ocean!!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
An ideal day includes having coffee on the back porch while enjoying breakfast from the pier. After that, a day at the beach and a good lunch. Then a nap on the hammock and a cookout in the backyard make for an enjoyable closing to an enjoyable day!! Have Fun!
