Photos and Description of the Holden Beach vacation house rental

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)


This 'eclectic classic' beach home is situated on a wonderfully located 2nd row lot, with a private beach access located directly across the street--a rare combination anywhere on Holden Beach, especially so close to the strand and the bridge!

Located at 218 Ocean Blvd West, 1/4 mile (two blocks) from the Holden Beach bridge, local bars, restaurants, ice cream, bike/kayak rentals and shopping are all a short walk or bike ride away. We also offer a grilling patio and small backyard area for pets. Bikes for adults and children are available for rental at local shops and are a wonderful and relaxing way to see the island.

A 3 bedroom and 1 bath, our little cottage is perfect for a couples get away or a small family of 4. With whimsical furnishings and original knotty pine paneling, our home is the perfect combination of old and new and will make you feel right at home! We have an enclosed outdoor shower area (cold water only) to rinse beach sand and a spacious parking area that can accommodate 2-3 vehicles. The covered porch with ocean views offers the perfect spot for enjoying morning coffee, evening sunsets or the afternoon sea breeze. From the porch, there are two wonderful ocean views...check our pictures from all year-round!

With the original classic tongue-in-groove pine paneling and hard wood floors covered with antique oriental rugs, 'Carolina Country' provides it's occupants with a true feeling of home and history. The eclectic decor is a combination of memorabilia and unique contributions from many family members over the years. The living room table, for example, was handcrafted by my maternal grandfather, L.T.'Leaky' Davis, from the original ships wheel collected directly from a WWII Liberty Ship, off of Wrightsville Beach. In addition to being a master craftsman, he remains a legend in the world of Gulf Stream billfishing. Most of the hanging artworks are, either dedicated to or, done by a member of this artistic family. This is 'old school' beach house personified.

Having weathered many storms through the years, 'Carolina Country' stands as a shining example of the life and energy of the wonderful people that have called it home. Come sit back, relax and experience Holden Beach the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
