About Steve Brangle - Owner

We are a family of 4 and have now seen our kids grow up while owning this house. It is part of our family and our 'Golden Jewel'. We use it all year long when we are not renting it. We love owning this solid home and have put a lot of time, money, sweat & love into keeping this home beautiful.

Steve Brangle - Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why Steve Brangle - Owner chose Holden Beach

When we were looking to buy a beach house, we looked at a lot of beaches and houses! The first time we walked into this home we told the realtor 'That we are done looking. This is the house we want'. Holden Beach is close enough to Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC (40 miles each way) that you can make a nice day trip there if you like. Holden Beach has been annually ranked in the country as a top 10 family beach. Holden Beach is an island with over 8 miles of clean sandy beaches. There is hardly any commercialization on the island. No building is over 2 stories tall!!! You also have access to some of the best seafood restaurants on the coast or you can buy it fresh and cook it at our home. Crabs are easily caught (Email us for info) and easy to prepare especially at King Krab.

What makes this house unique

Just sitting on the screen porch and rocking away while starring at the moon is all that needs to be said (with or without cigar and beverage). Or venture out further and walk on the beach and let the water wash away all your worries. Or if it rains... play ping pong or corn hole in the enclosed garage. We are really close to a bunch of Golf resorts and have Special Deals for people staying at King Krab.

Loving KING KRAB, Bob and Nancy L.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a fantastic week on Holden Beach, staying at the best home there, KING KRAB. This ocean front single level home is extremely clean and meets every need one could ask for. All appointments are there and needs for nothing. Beach access is a mere few feet from the screened porch, which accommodates two excellent glider / rockers and other non-splintering chairs and tables. Kitchen has just been remodeled and is great, even an on counter ice maker, in conjunction with the main refer. ice maker, there is plenty. You'll love this house and the owner is the best, PLEASE give this home a good look, we're returning in Oct., and again, and again, and again .........Lord willing.

We have stayed in several different oceanfront homes on Holden Beach over the past years, and even though we enjoyed ourselves, we have never stayed in the same house twice. This will definitely change with King Krab. We loved the Crab theme/decor throughout the house, the screened in deck, the beverage/wine cooler and the ice machine. First time we never had to buy ice at the beach! The kitchen was fully stocked with any utensil, bowl, or pan that we might need. Absolutely loved being able to sit in the screened in deck and hear/see the ocean while enjoy a morning cup of coffee! Sunsets and sunrises oh my...simply beautiful.

I do have to say the only negative, and too some it would not be, was the shower. Both my husband and I are tall, and the shower head was to low for us, maybe a hand held shower head attachment would add some height on. However, this is not enough to keep us from staying here again. We will be back next year!

Thank you so very much

Bob and Mary

Owner's Response: Bob and Mary thanks for your kind words. We look forward to hosting you again in the future. We are planning on remodeling both upstairs bathrooms in the off season. We should have brand new hand held shower attachments. We remodeled the kitchen this year. Bathrooms next year! We treat King Krab as an investment and are always looking to improve it.

as regular visitors to holden beach since 1980, my family and i have been staying exclusively at king crab for a decade. it has become our comfortable home away from home. happily, we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

from the splendid screened-in oceanside porch to the fantastic downstairs 'rec room,' it is the perfect 4-bedroom abode for a family. it is decorated with a plethora of colorful seaside relics, including a vintage sailboat mast which is built into the ceiling of the airy main room. meanwhile, the legendary shark bedroom, featuring stuffed animals, posters and eye-catching 'jaws'-inspired artifacts, will induce smiles from the younger kids and, yes, fun-loving adults as well.

the krab is perfectly situated with easy access to the both the hb pier and the bridge, yet far enough away from the action to experience some private moments. the pristine dune which frames the short walkway to the beach is well-established and covered with lovely regional flora. and the view of the blue atlantic is peerless, whether you're up early with a hot cup of joe and the 'brunswick beacon' or celebrating the twinkling wonder of dusk with your favorite cold beverage. yes, prepare for a coastal experience you'll never forget.

as the day winds down, the family may reconvene downstairs for a ping-pong battle royale in the cool of the open-air playroom -- or not. My thing is simply to 'hang' in the comfy pauley's island hammock as the kids go at it -- and dream peaceful dreams. indeed, there's something for everyone.

such is the magic of king crab.
