Hold-on-Beach is still located on a wonderful section of the East End of Holden Beach. The beach strand got a nice renourishment in 2017 and over the winter Hold-on-Beach got exterior trim repairs /replacement and two fresh coats of paint. Fortunately for us, Holden Beach and our two homes didn't suffer any damage from Hurricanes Irma, Jose or Maria. Our hearts and prayers go our to those still displaced and devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, especially those in the Puerto Rico, Caribbean and Antilles where recovery is more difficult than here in the states.
A major beach renourishment project was completed in 2017 giving us a beautiful broad beach. Hold-on-Beach and Pelican Watch (VRBO 185186) are both ready for renters.
