About Chris Dovel

My family first built at Holden Beach in 1971 and my wife and I have owned property here since 1998. This is our second home here and we absolutely love it at Holden Beach!

Chris Dovel purchased this house in 2005

Why Chris Dovel chose Holden Beach

We built this property in 2005 after having owned another canal property at HB. With small kids, we wanted to be away from the canal and yet stay close to the beach. With this home, we get close beach access and also stunning views and access to the ICW. This home has been the best of both worlds!

What makes this house unique

Very few homes on Holden Beach have private (locked) dock access to the IntraCoastal Waterway and yet be so close to the beach. This home allows you both --sit on the porch and watch the boats go by and yet only a short walk to the beach with Private Beach Access.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The house is clean, spacious and in a great location. Our kids of course loved the beach but they felt like true adventurers when we walked on the dock thru the salt marsh. We look forward to returning. Thank you!

Very nice property, convenient to beach and inlet.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house had a good layout with plenty of bedrooms and gathering places. Especially nice to have two master bedrooms with private baths. Lots of porches with chairs for relaxing outside. Easy walk to beach and right by inlet. Would stay there again.

Relaxing, Great location, Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 3 adults and 4 children. The house was perfect. It was very clean and well kept. We had plenty of room for everyone. The walk to the beach was easy and we had private access. The kids loved the beach. We found some great shells too. It was quiet and relaxing for everyone. We also found a great local pizza place and ice cream shop. Otherwise we cooked at the house and had everything we needed. We are already talking about coming back for the summer or Spring Break next year. The only thing we wished the house had was a pool for the summer! Thanks for a great vacation!
