I grew up with a family beach house at Edisto Beach, SC. Love the Carolina coast. Holden Beach is not at all like Myrtle Beach. We built this house and incorporated improvements on the design of our other very nice house, Hold-on-Beach, 177730. We love the East-End of Holden Beach so much, we are now on our third house in the neighborhood. Designed and built Pelican Watch for long-term enjoyment and eventual retirement. Heated pool really extends pleasure to almost 9 months.

Irvin Woods purchased this house in 2008

Special design and open space, visually from glassed back deck to stunning ocean views from both living levels. Elevator serves top floor (main living level) from parking level. Inverted floor-plan. Private heated (optional) pool id open from March to Thanksgiving.

Pelican Watch is in very lightly developed area of east end of Holden Beach.

Four couples spent a long weekend at Pelican Watch--The house is beautiful,the view is georgeous, the owner was so thorough in all our planning & so considerate of us. Holden Beach is such a quiet beach from what we are used to in the SC area & we loved it. We would definitely consider going here again. Nancy & Johnny & our friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comments... Most of my off-season renters are couples, often only one-couple in a 4-Bedroom house, but they all go for the views, walks on the beach, solitude and top-quality and value of Pelican Watch. The private pool is an attraction in late spring/ summer. Irv

Peace and Pelicans

I had the most relaxing vacation of my life listening to the waves as the sun set beautifully over the ocean from the top deck. Dolphins danced in the ocean and Pelicans flew by to say "Hi". Pelican Watch is a wonderful, cozy beach house that is like "new" with all the amenities and comforts you are used to in your own home. I love It!

We had a great time at Pelican Watch! We were there to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday with our family and it was a wonderful time. The house was perfect size for our 3 families. We would go back for sure!

Our Holden Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 3, 2013

I wanted to find a great place to have our family gathering this year at Holden Beach 2013 and found Pelican Watch a clean and well maintained home that was perfect. I have been coming to Holden Beach since I was 12 in 1966 (when they had the old bridge and fewer cottages) and later, introduced my husband and family to this NC Island gem. My children grew up coming to Holden Beach and this year, their own little one was returning on her journeys to Holden Beach. We all found this home to be all we could have wished for and when you see the pictures on the website you will find the home to reflect what the pictures show. Everyone voted this our best trip ever and new "favorite" home to rent. The East End experience is hands down the best place to be on Holden Beach. The expanse of oceanfront, the unique shells, the brown Pelicans, and the wild dune beach scape was a visual feast. We discovered local Boat Taxi service, Windy Point Nautical Adventures, to be a wonderful way to see the waterway and have a great dinner out. And we voted Ella's Restaurant at Calabash as our favorite seafood eatery. Give these a try. The homeowner, was personable and helpful when needed. He was accessible, informative, and supportive without being intrusive. It was such a positive experience to work with him. I hope that anyone looking for such luxury surrounded by stunning nature, will make Pelican Watch the place for their own Holden memories.

Peaceful Location, Beautiful House, Excellent Views, Accomodating Owner!

Who could ask for anything more? We recently visited Holden Beach, NC and were fortunate enough to rent Pelican Watch. The house is beautiful and on a quiet street facing the beach. We enjoyed the heated pool,the beach front location, sitting on the top deck and watching the sun rise and so much more. The Owner went out of his way to be accommodating and helpful. We loved Holden Beach and our stay at Pelican Watch made our trip even more memorable.. I would stay here again and would highly recommend this rental.
