About Donna & David Desko

What Island Life at Holden Beach means to us......... Living most of our lives in the mountains, we always enjoyed “The Holden Beach” Island community, and its natural setting. It instills a laid back way of life, infused with peace and serenity. It begins as soon as you start crossing over to the island by the magnificent causeway bridge. As you rise on a gentle curving slope into the air you immediately behold the combined view of Holden Beach Island nestled between the lazy meandering Intra-coastal Waterway beneath you, and the serene expanse of ocean surf before you. As you then slowly descend onto the island, the experience leaves one with a profound sense of having arrived someplace special. After many years of mountain living, we have grown accustomed to sleeping at night with a window cracked so as to be lulled into sleep by the wilderness night sounds of crickets, peepers, the haunting calls of owls, or the occasional cry of a coyote. Well, we have discovered that the sound of rolling surf provides similar lulling background night sounds. And, it does not just dissipate with the morning sun, but can be enjoyed all day and every day, or night. Daily living in Holden Beach is unhurried, as everyone is enjoying living on “island time". And the commercial-free, family-home-only building restrictions, guarantee a safe and pleasant atmosphere year round. The island dwellers here are neighborly and willing to engage in conversation, just to be neighborly. Here people have time for people.

Still has the beach atmosphere with a taste of a country home. It's in a location to ride or stroll to breakfast ,lunch or dinner. Drive west of the island for the general store and one of my favorites the gift store with ice cream shop on top. Both stores have the sweetest Employes working there.

                                                                  We had a absolute great time. Surely will return to that location and I hope next year more than one time. Thanks for such a fun - relaxing and great experience vacation
