About the property

5-Bedroom, 2nd Row Home With Pool And Amazing Marsh And Ocean Views

This brand new, 5-bedroom home, finished in May 2016, boasts the best decks on the island. Enjoy ocean and marsh views from two levels of wrap around porches that ensure plenty of sun or shade to meet your mood at any time of the day. From the back decks we have spotted deer, coyotes, and several bird species. From the front deck, you can see dolphins playing in the wake of shrimping boats, rabbits hopping in the dunes, and on May 6th, we even spotted a whale breaching.

The CAMA public beach access directly across the street makes getting to the beach a breeze, and a private pool, shaded at mid-day, offers a relaxing alternative to the ocean. Your family will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water.

The home is built on an inverted floor plan with four bedrooms on the first level: facing the ocean are: a six-person bunk bed room that is perfect for kids and a queen bedroom, and facing the marsh are one queen bedroom and one bedroom with two twin beds. The master bedroom, with a king bed, provides an amazing ocean view from the second level. Also on the second level are: the kitchen, dining room and living room, all with views of both the ocean and marsh. This house has beds for 8 adults and 6 children. 10 adults can also comfortably sleep with two adults per bedroom.

This house has two levels of wrap around porches to optimize vistas of the ocean and marsh. Enjoy views of the ocean from rocking chairs on the top deck or the first floor deck. Enjoy a meal and a spectacular marsh view from the top rear deck - you might spot deer, raccoons and coyotes and you will definitely see several birds and crabs. Relax by the marsh on the first floor rear deck with cushioned patio furniture and a 4 person table perfect for a board game or a snack. The front and rear decks are connected through large side decks which provide great play areas for kids. Should pool time prove too much fun to take a break, a pool-side, shaded picnic table is a great spot to lunch and it's close to the charcoal grill available for renters to use.

This is our dream home and because we want you to feel at home here we offer toys, games, books, beach chairs, beach tent, linen and towel service and a stocked kitchen. We hope to welcome you soon!

About Monica and John

We live and work in Raleigh, NC and relax in Holden Beach.

Monica and John purchased this house in 2016

Why Monica and John chose Holden Beach

When we first traveled to Holden Beach, we knew this was the beach we wanted to return to as often as possible. The views are breathtaking and the small beach town atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. We built our dream vacation home here and we hope to have the opportunity to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy spending time outdoors, so we built large wrap around porches to truly showcase the beauty of the island with views of the ocean and marsh. Our children love sleepovers so we designed a bunk room to accommodate six children for maximum fun.

Beautiful home with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip. The views are spectacular from every room. One side has marsh views with a lot of wildlife and the other side has view of the ocean. The home was a great layout for our family. We lucked out and saw turtles hatch one night. Our girls loved visiting the ice cream shops at night-Beaches was their favorite! There is a convenience store and ice cream shop in walking distance of this house. Highly recommend this house, and the owners were fantastic and very responsive to questions.

Bright and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem! The location, mid-way down the island was great. Not too much traffic during the day when you are crossing the street to head to the beach. Access is right across the street - with 4 steps down to get to the sand from the short boardwalk. The beach wasn't very crowded either - despite being right by the public beach access. The house was great - 4 rooms on the 1st floor with a hallway accessible bathroom on each side. The top floor was amazing - with beautiful views of the waves hitting the beach and the marsh behind the house. Open and light and refreshing! I sure hope a house isn't ever built across the street because it is such an amazing open view! It had a well-stocked kitchen and plenty of plates and utensils for the 11 of us. We cook almost all of our meals at the house, so a fridge that was bigger would have been helpful since we brought in a lot of food and drinks. It was convenient to have shelves in the closets for our clothes since there were not any dressers. However, it would be nice to have a bedside table and lamp in the rooms as it is difficult to read in bed before going to sleep with the bright overhead light on. All in all, it was a great place to stay - and we hope to be going back soon!

Our family had an amazing time.

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful & spacious. We finally got our 3 children, their spouses & 5 grandchildren (all under 5 ) on a family vacation. If you have little ones you may want to bring baby gates which worked out great for us. The home could of used nite stands in some of the bedroom & side tables in living room. The kitchen had everything we needed & the tabled sat us all. I think we had the best views on the whole island from the deck & windows inside. We watched the sun rise & set from the back deck, the stars & planets at nite, the ocean on the front decks & the fireworks from all the decks on 4th of July. The pool was perfect size & loved using it in the afternoons & evenings. We went to the listen to a band on Sunday at the pavilion...get there early & bring chairs. You can purchase Italian ices & ice cream there. Our 3 & 4 yr. old grandsons said they didn't want to go home & it was the best time they ever had. Our kids said we need come back here again & they had a wonderful time. On the last day we met a photographer at the end of the island & took family photos on the beach. Thank you Monica & John for sharing your beautiful home to spend with our family & create a lifetime of memories!

Beautiful property with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, and the owner was very responsive to needs. Nicely furnished kitchen with huge table and sofa large enough for almost everyone. Towels provided was a big plus. Proximity to beach is great too. The pool was smaller than expected but kids enjoyed it. Very minor drawbacks - minimal furniture (beds only) in most of the bedrooms and outdoor furniture not great, but otherwise a wonderful house.

Wonderful beach house and a perfect estate from stressful jobs!

  • 5 of 5

Monica and John thought of everything in their rental property. The location is to-die-for (marsh in back, my favorite, and ocean in front), and public beach access is easily accessible. Friends stayed across the street, and we had a memorable family vacation. I loved sitting on the second floor deck and watching the marsh while reading a book. The kitchen (my favorite room) was beautiful - white cabinets, gorgeous granite, hardwood floors. Can't wait to return!
