Overview

Holden Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This is a classic beach cottage with knotty pine tongue and groove interior siding. It has been modernized to include everything you will need to enjoy a long weekend, week or more at the beach.

The oceanfront screen porch is a great place to relax out of the sun and enjoy the cool ocean breezes. Or you can enjoy the same breezes on the sun deck while getting a tan.

This family beach is seldom crowded and the strand is less than 100 feet from the sun deck. You will never need to 'lug' your chairs, sand toys, etc. a long distance to enjoy them on the beach.

About Bob Harley

My parents bought this cottage in 1954 and I lived here every summer until I went to college. My wife and I bought it from them in 1983 and raised our children here. We have a number of renters who have raised their families here as well and their children are now coming back.

Bob Harley purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Bob Harley chose Holden Beach

We love the family atmosphere at Holden Beach. There are plenty of things to do here on the island. It is within a 45 minute drive of Myrtle Beach or Wilmington if more action such as amusement parks, more nightlife, etc. are desired. There are many golf courses within 30 miles. Surf fishing, pier fishing and deep sea charter fishing are all available here as well.

What makes this cottage unique

Holden Beach is one of the few developed islands in this area with no high rise, high density housing. You can stroll along the beach without having to dodge other people constantly and never have a problem finding a place to sit on the beach.

Just perfect!

'Harley's Better Half', this cozy cottage ON the oceanfront, was precisely what we had hoped for as a much-needed, relaxing, haven for us two overworked folks. The house is comfortable and casual and well-kept, and the owners - Bob and Donna Harley - are fine people whom we immediately liked and respected. We also just fell in love with Holden Beach as a community, and the great people who live there.
As is said, 'The proof is in the pudding': we have already reserved the cottage again for next spring and fall. :) - Ken and Linda, Virginia

Thanks, Bob Harley

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a stay at Harley's Better Half and hated to leave. The cottage was just as pictured and described but what the pictures don't convey is the great feel and character of the place. It is well maintained and is full of personal touches and vintage accessories. Beds were comfortable by night and the screen porch was my favorite place to spend time when not on the beach during the day. Owner was very pleasant when contacted and I plan to return to this cottage again in the future.

I can't say much that hasn't already been said! This was perfect for our group of two couples and one child. The house is awesome and the location is perfect. You can walk to all public facilities/stores/restaurants on the island. Bring bicycles if you want to cover the whole island like we did! This house will definitely be on our short list for next year and in the future! Thanks for the wonderful stay!

This cottage is on a delightfully quiet small barrier island on the southern coast of North Carolina. Because the island is oriented east to west the ocean is usually calm. There is a very wide, uncrowded strand. The shape of the strand provides a long shallow area making it ideal for young children and adults alike to enjoy the ocean. There are a few putt-putt courses and a waterslide nearby but the island itself is basically non-commercial. There are a number of seafood and other restaurants both on and off the island. And it is situated about half way between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington which provide many activities as well as shopping and restaurants. On the island you will find charter boats, pier fishing, jet ski rental, bike rental, kayak rental and guided trips and a number of other things to do.

Other Activities: boating, parasailing, mini golf
